Vampires have been legend since the dawn of time. Stories and myths can be found in the most ancient of civilizations. They have proven time and time again that they have sticking power. They go through cycles of hot and cold but over the centuries, they’ve never gone away.
I think one of the things that keeps the vampire genre so popular is the fact that they grow with the times. The vampire is so versatile. They can be good, evil, sexy, monstrous, and on many occasions, anything in-between.
As with any fiction, I think some of our love of those creatures has a lot to do with the “escape factor.” It’s that ability to set aside the normal day-to-day existence and dare to step into a world filled with creatures and things that we can only dream about.
Sure, at times those things can scare us, but more often than not, they just send that chill of excitement up our spines.
Who doesn’t want to be the heroine of a story being scooped up by the dark and dashing vampire? C’mon admit it; you want to feel his hot breath on your skin and the sensual scrape of his fangs before he sinks his teeth into you. But don’t worry, this one won’t kill you.. He just wants a taste. A prequel if you will before your night of excitement truly begins.
Remember, vampires are predators. It is in their nature. And, let’s face it women, we do like being chased (by men we want to catch us.) They are the ultimate bad boys too! They have piercing eyes that can reach into your very soul and mesmerize the pants right off of you. Not that many of us might mind that… LoL. Once they’ve got you in their strong, capable arms, you just want to melt.
It’s easy to see why they have such appeal, and for me, they have always been a favorite creature. I couldn’t help but write about them. Sometimes my stories are erotic, sometime just sweet romance, but they always include a vampire. Why? Because the vampire is just so darn irresistible!

Kendra used to spend her days organizing events for Café Enigma while daydreaming about Marcus, the sexy lead singer of Normal Paradox. But all those dreams of becoming Mrs. Rock Star died, along with her mortality, the moment Hector entered her life and turned her into a vampire.
Ten torturous years later, Kendra finally escapes Hector and runs straight into Marcus. (Well, actually, he hit her with his car, but that’s beside the point.) The accident leaves Marcus concussed and a few pints too low, forcing Kendra to share her blood to save him.
Sharing her blood doesn’t just heal Marcus’s wounds; it bonds him to Kendra in a magical “can’t live without you” sort of way. Now he’s professing his undying love to her, and Kendra’s not sure if he’s for real or just experiencing the side effects of their new blood bond. Either way, the two of them can’t be separated without suffering suicidal levels of depression, and the band needs to hit the road for the rest of their cross-country tour.
Kendra’s content to travel with the band and explore her new-found relationship, until whispered threats from her master, Hector, start invading her dreams. He’s tracking her down, and she can feel it. She knows the horrors he’s capable of, and if he finds out about Marcus, Hector will do everything in his power to destroy him.
If she stays, Marcus is doomed to Hector’s wrath. If she goes, the repercussions of their bond might kill Marcus. Both options will break Kendra’s heart. If they’re truly meant for each other, they’ll have to find another way….
