What I consider to be action-romance would be either shounens with more than usual romance, or romance shoujo's with some action and not too many harsh cliches.

My art preference is... well... I like smooth art, good solid/dark lines.
I really like Iris Zero's art, and also its story line even tho i wouldn't say its action.
I REALLY don't like "sketch-like" art and/or "huge eyed" shoujo's....

So best examples I can give for "action-romance"/good art would be:
Dengeki Daisy
Good Luck, Demon King!
Edit, want to add these now that i've been reminded of them:
Double Arts
Akagami no Shirayukihime
Chrno Crusade

Edit: I liked the art for Magico but I'm not a fan of the stupid romance. or anything under the tag of "idiot couple"

Anyways, please and thanks for the help =)

You could give a try to Ookami to Koushinryou, the romance is slow, but it's pretty nice.
Also for awesome art I'd say Otoyomegatari.

Sorry they're both seinen, hope you don't mind.

13 (one shot)
Mirai Nikki (psycho)
Shingetsutan Tsukihime (cool and bloody)
Sugar Dark (dark romance, cool ending!)
Superior (very nice overall)
Usotsuki Mi-kun to Kowareta Ma-chan Totteoki no Uso (pshyco and dark)
ES (mixed feelings about this one, but you can se what you think)
Kara no Kyoukai: The Garden of Sinners (horror/triller and my meaning is that this one is a epic love story)
Deadman Wonderland (bloody and sinister as hell)
50 Million Km (has potential)
Girls of the Wild's
Green Boy: Shouting to You

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900) - "Man is more ape than many of the apes."

Jean-Paul Sartre - "You are--your life, and nothing else."

Henrik Ibsen - "The majority is always wrong; the minority is rarely right."

Immortal Rain - a shoujo action adventure manga that reads like a shounen one
Ashita Dorobou - looks promising and the art is good, though there are bits of mature content

Change 123 - I'm not sure about the art, but it has a decent romance and lots of action. It's ecchi, but the manga is not all that bad.

Akame ga Kiru! - Shounen
Carnivorous Princess Yegrinna - Shounen
Girls of the Wild's - Shounen and Web Comic
Kurokami - Seinen
Popcorn Avatar - Shounen
Taboo-Tattoo - Seinen

They are all tagged ecchi but it's very mild... not nearly enough to become annoying I think...
