Chloe Neil - Some Girls Bite

Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but it was Merit’s. She was doing fine until a rogue vampire attacked her. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker—and this one decided the best way to save her life was to make her the walking undead.Turns out her savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now she’s traded sweating over her thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan “Lord o’ the Manor” Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred- year-old vampire, he has centuries’ worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects her gratitude— and servitude. But an inconvenient sunlight allergy and Ethan’s attitude are the least of her concerns. Someone’s still out to get her. Her initiation into Chicago’s nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war—and there will be blood.

Ok, I am going to be bluntly honest and if I ruin this for anyone I am sorry. The book is very very very good, however I have MAJOR and I mean MAJOR problems with the status of the relationship between Merit and Ethan by the end of the book. I look forward to the next installment which is due out soon.

Book two is Friday Night Bites -

Ten months after vampires revealed their existence to the mortals of Chicago, they're enjoying a celebrity status usually reserved for the Hollywood elite. But should people learn about the Raves-mass feeding parties where vampires round up humans like cattle-the citizens will start sharpening their stakes.So now it's up to the new vampire Merit to reconnect with her upper class family and act as liaison between humans and bloodsuckers, and keep the more unsavory aspects of the vampire lifestyle out of the media. But someone doesn't want peace between them-someone with an ancient grudge...

Vampires at the Opera

What if. Count Vlad Dracula and Erik, the Phantom of the Opera, not only knew each other, but formed an alliance? This exciting, unique story crosses two of the most widely read Gothic novels Dracula and Phantom of the Opera. Vampires at the Opera openly explores the steamy romantic relationships of soul mates Christine and Erik, and Mina and Dracula. The tale begins soon after the famous Stoker novel ends, when Dracula escaped capture by the group of vampire hunters then traveled to the Paris Opera House to seek sanctuary and the aid of his friend the Phantom. Dracula wants them to travel back to England to rescue Mina, the love of his life. Unbeknownst to Stoker, Mina kept additional, secret diary entries, detailing a very passionate romance with Dracula in London. First, however, Dracula must solve Erik's situation with his lover Christine Daae-dealing with the inept but earnest Raoul, the Vicomte de Chagny. Christine wants him out of the way so she and the Phantom can remain safe and happy, living beneath the Opera House. Once the Phantom's dilemma is resolved the two monsters plan their journey back to England, where they discover Mina is now pregnant with her husband Jonathan Harker's child. What's a vampire to do? Bring Mina back to Paris, turn her into a vampire, or leave her to live as a mortal in England? Enjoy this dark erotic tale of two legendary monsters.
This is another example of a total crapp book I HAD to own and totally loved. Yeah I have nothing to add that isn't said in the blurb above other than it was oddly sweet!

Rosemary Laurey

This blog will be dedicated to Rosemary's Vampire series. Now I am only in book 4 of the 5 I have downloaded but I managed to all but inhail them this weekend past. I totally enjoyed them and would so very seriously own them.

***please excuse any errors or confusion as I don't want to snag Amazon's book blurbs***

Book one is - Kiss me forever - the gist is, Dixie LePage goes to England to see about some property she inherited from her strange great aunts. She does not have an easy time of it, her "lawyer" Sebastian wants whats in the house and intends to do anything necessary to get it. The only person who seems to be looking out for Dixie is Christopher who happens to be a vampire and THE Christopher Marlowe of Elizabethan fame. When Christopher is attacked by Sebastian Dixie comes to the rescue and he returns the favor when Sebastian throws Dixie off a cliff. The long and short of it is there is a happy ending and Dixie and Christopher live happily ever after.

Book two is - Love me forever - we meet up again with Dixie and Kit in America and Christopher's friend Justin (a 1500 year old vamp) is visiting. Justin is immediately attracked to a frequent customer Stella. After frightening turns of events Stella is shot and Justin turns her into a vampire for two reasons a) his love for her and b) her 9 yr old son Sam. After drama ionvolving the Vamp Colony and Stella's criminal mother's friends Justin and Stella end up happily ever after. We also meet two Ghouls found lost and confused by Vlad (yes THE Vlad) in Chicago...Angela and Jane.

Book three is - Be Mine Forever - We are now with Tom Kyd (another famous playwrite and friend of Kit we meet in book 1) and Angela...they have become a couple that though they love each other grate on each other because they both have two strong personalities...Angela is trying to find out who she is and Tom is trying to the book turns (the audience already knows who and how Angela became a Ghoul) Angela is being tracked by a WICKEDLY nasty vamp named Laran who, yup as with all romances, gets it in the end...and Tom and Angela who is really Elizabeth.

Book four is - Keep me forever - Antonia another 1k+ year old vamp we've met before is going into business with Elizabeth (formerly Angela) in Dixie's old house. Strange things start happening and she meets Michael who is a shapeshifter and they fall in love. Stella and Sam come up to visit and help with the business and are car jacked by jewel theives...

Ok honestly I am petering out...I highly highly recommend this series. The sex aspect of it is there but VERY VERY tame. In 4 books the "F" word has been used I think twice etc. All in all very sweet and very good. Like I said I would seriously buy the series.

I'm not going to say this is the absolute best series ever or the best ever written but I am honestly going to say that the characters are endearing and you want to know what is going to happen next. Of the series I do not have a favorite and I look forward to getting around to reading book 5 :D

To 'Er is human to Vamp is divine

So I have decided that this will be my vampire blog as the title is a solumn tribute to the Brat Prince himself, LeStat. No I am not going to blog on Anne Rice because, honestly, I don't feel like it. :D

No this is going to be dedicated to vampire novels ranging from Young Adult to downright to Romance and maybe a few beyond...and I'll keep you informed of the variances in between.

On the mean time all, happy hunting!
