The immensely popular Dark-Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon is a collection of paranormal romance novels featuring several groups: Dark-Hunters (vampire-like immortals), Were-Hunters (shapeshifters), Dream-Hunters (gods of sleep), Hellchasers (demon hunters), and Lords of Avalon. Some books focus on just one group, but many characters and storylines cross over.
