Vampire stories in recent years have been inspired by the success of the Twilight series and True Blood on television. However, vampire romance novels for adults carry a different tone and more erotic theme. As a consequence, such novels have become very popular.
One such novel is Blood Lust written by Sarah Clapham. This version is slightly different as it is a personalized book where you can star as one of the characters in the story. This adds to the intrigue of the novel itself.
Some reasons exist for the popularity of these books and why they carry erotic appeal.
Female readers can be drawn to the invincibility of the male hero is shown to be fragile in the face of a powerful female vampire. Vampire romance novels will remain popular with female readers for as long as such stories exist.
For the characters generally, an ordinary male vampire becoming a vamp transforms the male character into a powerful being with superior intellect and experience from centuries of walking the earth. Such characters are almost irresistible, the idea of possessing such power.
Male and Female vamps can be so varied. The vampire may not necessarily be one with pretty features and a dazzling face. The vamp can be an average-looking guy or girl suddenly given the power of irresistible attraction. In most novels, the female character is one of the first traditionally to be unable to resist the macabre charm of the undead.
Joss Whedon’s Buffy stories tended to revolve around such characters though, in vampire romance novels for adults, much more of the vampire passion can be explored.
For female characters, a popular example is the choice between victimhood under the possessive husband’s wicked and forceful nature, or give in to being seduced by another male vampire. In so doing, the quasi-independent woman becomes free of her dominating husband now as she gains very real power over him. This comes across as both seductive and sexual as the story unfolds.
Other story angles maybe the couple are happy together, respecting each other’s space and living for the good of their relationship until Mister Vampire comes along and grants supreme power to one of them. This changes the character’s usual mannerisms and needs allowing for a more uninhibited character.
The morality around these themes either turns you away from vampire romance novels or ensures that many such books find a place on your shelf.
It is a myth to say that vampire novels are for teens only. This is loosely based on the successful movie ventures and as True Blood has proved, vampires are not just Goth beings with a phony accent and a terrible sense of humor. Vampire romance stories involve complex and simple characters who become more sexual and demonic once tainted by the bite.
Another good story can involve the heroine finding out that her parents are both vamps. Of course, this can end up as any vampire-themed story including a comedy tale.
For many, vampire romance novels are favorite types of fiction.
There are so many different types of vampire romance novels set in the modern-day, others in a period setting like the old Hammer movies, and others even take you to the future. Whatever the location and types of characters, vampire romance novels for adults promise a mix of blood-curdling reading and sensual experiences with our darker side.
