The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost

Genre:  Adult Paranormal Romance
Broken Destiny Series, Book 1

Description (taken from Jeaniene Frost's website):
In a world of shadows, anything is possible. Except escaping your fate.

Ever since she was a child, Ivy has been gripped by visions of strange realms just beyond her own. But when her sister goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse—her hallucinations are real, and her sister is trapped in a parallel realm. The one person who believes her is the dangerously attractive guy who’s bound by an ancient legacy to betray her.

Adrian might have turned his back on those who raised him, but that doesn’t mean he can change his fate…no matter how strong a pull he feels toward Ivy. Together they search for the powerful relic that can save her sister, but Adrian knows what Ivy doesn’t: that every step brings Ivy closer to the truth about her own destiny, and a war that could doom the world. Sooner or later, it will be Ivy on one side, Adrian on the other, and nothing but ashes in between…

Ivy has lost every one she's ever loved.  Somehow, she ends up in the town where her sister was last seen before her disappearance.  With nothing left to lose, Ivy is working her way through the town trying to see if anyone's seen her sister recently.  But when evil wants disappearances buried, it'll make sure it stays buried.

Cue enterance for hot and hunky hero.  Adrian has a sinister past with a fate laced with betrayal.  So he tries to fight it.  And somehow he ends up saving Ivy.  Ivy, the girl with a quick wit and determination who also happens to be a part of the fate he's running from.  But as everything is tied together and they try to save Ivy's sister, something more seems to happen between them.

Gah.  Trying to give a nice summary of the plot without giving anything away sucks.  And I feel like this series is something new enough to step away from the vampire genre but still similar enough to keep those paranormal fans interested.  I really enjoyed it.  And all of the twists as they came.  I don't really have anything negative to say.

Jeaniene Frost fans won't be disappointed.  And it's a definite read for paranormal romance fans.
