Writing stories about vampires doesn't have to mean spooky castles and bloody scenes. The sensual undertones of vampires open the door for stories focusing on vampire romance rather than gore. Writing a vampire romance novel involves more than putting two characters in a forbidden romance. It also requires strong plot development and fully-developed characters.

Study the vampire romance genre. Read as many vampire romance novels as you can. Stephanie Meyer's "Twilight" series and Shannon Drake's books are good examples. Note what you like about each book and what you don't like; this helps you from falling into clichés and can inspire you to put your own twist on the genre.  Read more at:

Legend of the Mystic Knights

It is a classic hero’s journey of a boy growing into a man to meet his destiny.  Follow his journey, as he is trained to become a page and a squire, and he finds confidence in himself to do battle with the evil forces which have been unleashed on the earth.

The Sand Prince by Kim Alexander

The plot is interesting, the characters are good but the story takes too much time for the action to really begin. Frustrating as it could be, every time I was on my way to put the book down, the author was coming up with new twists that kept me interested.

Shattered Blue by Lauren Bird Horowitz

And Bang! The last scenes are full of revelations.
Nothing is black and white. Got really frustrated with the end because I was ready to give up on this love triangle when the author has succeeded in hooking me again. So Grrrrr!
Don't know if I like it or not. Will need to read the sequel to make up my mind. ;-)
Nicely done by the author!

Who doesn't love a heroine who dunks her fries in vanilla shakes?

In Plain Sight by Senayda Pierre

The author has a way with emotions. Lovely read!

Love stories with legend and spirit animals... This story is more about true mates, destiny, choices and the impact of family history and education on our way of dealing with life.
It was really a cool awesome read.

The Rest Falls Away by Colleen Gleason

It's a mix between a debutante story with dancing bals, gowns and love story and a debutante training to become a vampire hunter. The plot is nice even if I would have prefered more actions and blood.

And the ending is good. It has piqued my curiosity.
Great read to pass an entertaining rainy sunday!
