What is it about vampires that are so appealing? I read my first vampire romance when Amanda Ashley started her series back in 1995 (or something like that) and I loved them. Craved them! I had a hard time back then finding vampire romances as there weren’t many authors writing in the paranormal genre at that time. When I discovered Christine Feehan I was so hooked. The Carpathians were such a unique take on vampires. Since then I’ve become a fan of all the various forms of immortals. Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunters, J. R. Ward’s BDB, Susan Sizemore’s Vamps, and I just bought Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breeds. There’s so many vampire romance authors I can’t list them all.
Those are big shoes to fill, right? As an author it can be intimidating to venture into a genre you’ve never written before, but I did that very thing when I wrote A Diamond at Midnight. I always call myself a contemporary author who writes steamy. Trying my hand at something so different was scary! When I submitted ADAM to The Wild Rose Press, I was scared to death and positive I’d get rejected. Imagine my surprise when an editor at TWRP emailed me to tell me she thought ADAM was a smartly written, action packed story with an ending that brought tears to her eyes. WOW! I was so surprised. Does my contribution to the immortal world hold up? We’ll see August 6th. *Gulp*
Now for a few questions. What is it you love the most about those vamps? Is it the biting? (that is SO sexy) Is it that the heroes are more primitive and aggressive? Or is it the fast paced storylines that grab you and won’t let go? Maybe it’s a combination. Who are some of your favorite vampire romance authors?

Diamonique’s life is changed forever when she stumbles across Cain Reed on a dark, lonely New York street. With a single bite, she’s given immortality and shown unimaginable pleasure. But before she can explore eternal love his betrayal tears them apart.
One hundred years later, Cain is back to save her from a dark enemy. Rafael, the depraved leader of The Dominion, will stop at nothing to settle an ancient score between him and Cain. Caught in the middle, Diamonique will need to swallow her pride and rely on Cain if she’s to survive. But is she handing her trust over to the right immortal or is she merely trading one evil for another?
