Guest Post! Kenya Wright, author of the Habitat series shares her favorite vampire books!

Vampires introduced me to the paranormal romance genre. Before these fanged creatures, I only read chick lit and serial killer novels. So today, I show my love for all the great vampire romances I’ve encountered. Here’s my top five!

(Warning: Your blood may rush through your veins at a face pace as well as heat with energy. Be very careful when reading these books.)

The Vampire Lestat by Ann Rice
If you haven’t met Lestat, then you aren’t a true vampire romance reader. He is the rock star of the vampire world (and he looks like Tom Cruise)!
Fledgling by Octavia Butler
First of all, Octavia Butler is one of the most amazing African American authors out there! Not only does this book present a new concept of vampirism, but it also provides a discussion of sexism and race. WARNING: You may not be able to deal with the sex scenes because the main character looks like a little child.
Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost

Oh my god! The Night Huntress series is book crack for the soul! Cat and Bones exemplify a drool-worthy affair! Grab this if you haven’t already.

Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K Hamilton
This is a cult favorite for all true vampire romance fans! Anita Blake is said to be one of the pioneer heroines of the genre.
Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore 

God! This is a hilarious book with great love scenes between the laughs.
So there you have it, my top five vampire books. If you haven’t read one of these books, I demand you pick it up immediately. I would love to hear what you think! Feel free to drop me a line on goodreads HERE!  I’m always on there blabbing about books that I hate or love.

Bestselling dark fantasy author Kenya Wright lives in Miami with her overactive kids, yummy hubby, and three cats that refuse to stop sleeping on her head.

    Hi Kenya. Some great picks. Have to check out Bllod Sucking Fiends and fledgling. Both sound good. I’ve read the other ones and they were good. I love Lestat the most.

    • O if you enjoyed Lestat you will probably enjoy Fledglin. Bloodsucking Fiends is just so funny its kind of in a category all by itself. Thanks for the comment!

    Thank you Kenya! I love your top 5. I’ve read them all except Fledgling. Can”t wait to pick that up, I’m intrigued. Lestat was my first. I found him in college, and he has remained the yardstick I measure all others by. I could wax poetic about the Wolf Killer for hours, but IMHO Mr. Cruise looked ridiculous with blond hair. I am hoping to meet Mrs Rice @ Comic con nest week and get my original paperback from 1987 autographed.
