I would like to buy two or three books on asp.net, VWD Express & SQL Server Express.
Ideally, over the collection of the books the coverage should include topics such as:
If anybody could recommend any particular books I would really appreciate it.

I doubt you will find books that cover all of those topics. You could probably get a good book that covers ASP.NET Ajax and clientside scripting, then one that covers Web Services in detail. Data Access and Security is covered pretty well in most of the
popular ASP.NET Professional books (like the ones from Apress and Wrox). Stored Procedures is purely SQL Server, so you want to have a look at T-SQL programming books.
Ignore any books that concentrate on Visual Web Developer. They will be for beginners only, and won't go into sufficient detail on any of the topics you listed.
My view: you generally can't go far wrong if you stick to Apress and Wrox, and look for "Professional" in the title.

If you are starting up, the clearest introductory books are those by Mike Murach.
