I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

Vampires are dying impossibly of disease.

Guild hunter Elena Deveraux and the Archangel Raphael must discover the source of the wave of death before it engulfs their city and their people, leaving New York a ruin and Raphael’s Tower under siege by enemy archangels.

Rogue Descendant (Nikki Glass #3) by Jenna Black

He orders private eye Nikki Glass to use her powers to locate Konstantin, and she balks at the idea until a series of attacks leads her to believe that Konstantin is gunning for her and Anderson instead of remaining safely in hiding.
Nikki’s search is complicated by Cyrus—Konstantin’s son and the new leader of the Olympians—who threatens retribution should his father be killed. The complications mount up as Nikki begins to suspect that Konstantin might not be behind the attacks after all. The only person who hates Konstantin more than Anderson does is Anderson’s estranged wife, Emma, who has joined the Olympians. And Nikki knows Emma would be more than happy if Anderson and his people embroil themselves in an all-out war against the Olympians—a war they cannot hope to win.
As Nikki tries to figure out who the true enemy is, she deals with her tumultuous relationship with Jamaal, who struggles to control his death magic. But being loved by a descendant of a death goddess is the least of Nikki’s worries…

Maddie's Choice  by Joyce Zeller
 
Romance writer Maddie Taylor's career is in trouble. Convinced that true love does not exist outside of her imagination, she can't complete her current manuscript. When a friend, Jonah Spartman, dies and wills her half of his cattle ranch, she seizes the chance to leave New York City. There is one catch: in order to inherit she must stay in Arkansas for three months.
The other half of the ranch belongs to Gideon Spartman, Jonah's grandson, a black-ops veteran whose humanity was torn from him in Afghanistan. Rugged and sexy, Gideon embodies the hero in Maddie's current manuscript. He is far from happy to be sharing an inheritance that is rightfully his with a "gold-digging bimbo" and resents having to care for his two orphaned nephews. But Maddie senses the need behind Gideon's rough and unwelcoming exterior. She must also contend with the two love-starved boys and an Angus bull who craves chocolate.
The ranch is hardly the safe haven Maddie expected. It is operating in the red, and the area is plagued with drug dealers and cattle rustlers. Maddie can return to her barren New York existence or stay and fight to save the ranch and win Gideon's love. The choice is hers
