‘Tis nearing the bewitching hour, that’s why!
Ever since I was young, I loved Dracula. He was suave, sexy, handsome, and …did I mention sexy? When he swept the lady in her beautiful gowns off her feet and made her swoon, when he kissed her and …well, all right, the original story was not enough of a romance story. So now, authors from all over the world have united and brought us the REAL vampire…the one with foibles, a dark hero, not the fiend as portrayed in the original version. With happily ever afters. Sigh… And he’s sexy.
I love vampires, but I like my heroines to have some skill so that the vampire can’t control them with their charming abilities. So in The Vampire…In My Dreams, the heroine is a witch. And when Dominic, the newly turned vampire, tries to use his vampiric abilities to control her, he finds he can’t. In Deadly Liaisons, the heroine is a huntress, a telepath and psychic. So the vampire can’t control her either.
Not that I don’t like a story where a vampire must control his natural urge to compel a human to do his bidding. Those are fun too. But I enjoy creating a world where the vampire can’t do so and must deal with it.
I’m looking forward to All Hallows Eve and dressing up for the occasion. Not sure what I’m going to be. Since I work at a library…probably something like the Mad Hatter. So here’s to vampires, witches, and other interesting creatures that go bump in the night…werewolves maybe???
And speaking of which, Heart of the Wolf is up for the NOR Award, tied for 1st place and needs your vote!!! Thanks so much! And Happy All Hallows Eve! http://www.nightowlromance.com/nightowlromance/NORAwards/fall2008norawardsromancebooks.asp
