Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K. Hamilton hooked me on the vampire genre. Thanks to Laurell and other greats like Lara Adrian, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Charlaine Harris, I have plenty of material to make sure my guilty pleasure gets a steady diet of intense, bloody and oh-so-steamy vampire goodness.
I found a delightful vampire romance in an unexpected place, as a free read on erotic romance author Evangeline Anderson’s website. Blind Date with a Vampire had such a fun, original beginning and ramped up to a seriously intense plot on par with the greats. The dialog was stellar, and the double first-person point of view was handled superbly. I was never confused who’s head I was in. Evangeline’s characters are unique from each other and unique in the genre. I hope these few lines below (it was SO hard to narrow it down!) will entice you to sink your fangs into Blind Date with a Vampire and to check out Evangeline’s website and her other works. She’s a true talent who I will definitely be reading more of.

I’ve always been one of those people who can’t give their body without giving their heart and now, for better or worse, my heart was given. I just hoped I wouldn’t regret it. (Kindle Locations 2282-2283).
It was like a pulsing thread between us, made up of her heartbeat and mine. (Kindle Locations 3612-3613).
