Don't Take Our Vampires Away

1st in series - free on amazon, B &N, I Tunes
Earlier this month on the view Whoopie said that vampires can't have sex as they have no blood in their bodies. As we all know  there is an organ which requires you to have blood or it won't work right for sex. I understnd what she's saying. I do. But I wanted to point out that my Dancing Vampire series is about vampiric fey from Scottish lore - baobhan sith (bah von shee) - they aren't dead - just vampiric fey - and they can have sex. 

But also, even if fictional vampires are dead why would anyone want to take sex away from them?Those fictional vampires aren't hurting anyone. Let them have sex. I mean vampires that can't have sex aren't much fun. And how do you write a romance around one anyway? Let us have our sexy vampires. First everyone was complaining about the sparkly vampires now they don't want the vampires to make love. I say leave it alone. Let the fictional vampires be. If they want to sparkle —let them sparkle. If they want to have sex —let them have sex. They are fictional — they don't really exist —so it doesn't matter. 
I don't want anyone changing the sexy vampires I like to read about and I don't want anyone touching the sexy shape shifters I like to read about either. 

Dance of The Vampires, 1st of the 6 book series is free now.

Seven vampiric temptresses dance with seven handsome highlanders. Then they turn on the men. Ian captures Sorcha, giving his brothers a chance to escape. With the vampiric fey woman still in his grasp, Ian is saved by the rising sun. Sorcha's sisters vanish with the light of dawn leaving her trapped in the mortal realm. Ian is bewitched by the wild delights she offers and Sorcha can't resist the urges he stirs in her. But her wicked sisters and his highland brothers only want to attack and kill each other. Will Sorcha and Ian's sizzling passion prove strong enough to overcome the differences between human and fey?

I love a good vampire or shifter tale, Cornelia - I'm with you - let them express themselves anyway they want - hey, it's a story! :)

Thank you, Tina, I really appreciate it.

I thought sparkling vampires were silly, but figured everyone has a right to change the vampire lore to suit their own stories. But a vampire who stalks and takes over a young girl's life? Not so cool. Besides, as I've pointed out many times, if a vampire is 100+ years old, he thinks like a man that old. Would you date your great-grandfather's friends? Ew!

BTW, I did write 2 vampire books myself, changing vampire lore to suit my stories...just like everyone else does. And yes, my vampires do have sex, but mostly with each other.

Your vampires sound interesting...especially since they are the females. I like to change things up, making the heroine be the other-worldly, or super-powerful one, with an ordinary human male. I like that dynamic.
