Blog Tour - Vampire Bites by Katie Salidas

I hope you will help me welcome Katie Salidas to the blog today! She doing a blog tour, promoting her anthology Vampire Bites. If you click on the banner there, you can see the list of participating blogs. Some of them are doing giveaways AND...

You cannot deny that vampires are HOT in today’s market. Between Urban Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Erotica, and let’s not forget the super popular YA market, vampires are taking over.

Not that I think that is a bad thing. I’ve been a die-hard vampire lover since I read my first novel, The Vampire Diaries, by LJ Smith. I believe I was about 10 years old at the time (Ooh, I’m dating my self. Strike that from the record).

There was just something about those creatures of the night that struck me.  Perhaps it was the mystique, maybe it was the ability to be the ultimate bad boy (let’s face it, you know we deny it but we women do love a bad boy.), maybe it was the power and immortality.

I was hooked, plain and simple.

From that moment on I devoured anything, vampire related, I could find.

Combine that love, with a desire to create and that sparked the idea to write my own stories.

 And that’s precisely where the Vampire Bites anthology came from. I love those sexy creatures of the night, and they are sexy aren’t they? I wanted to have a little fun and play with that sexiness. In Vampire Bites there are three bite-sized tales of love, lust and of course, bites.

We start with House of Immortal Pleasures:

Blindfolded, and kidnapped by her friends, Daphne is whisked away to the famed, House of Immortal Pleasures, a Vampire-run Brothel in Pahrump, Nevada.

Sometimes the only way to mend a broken heart is to get back in the saddle. At least that is how Daphne's friends see it. And since Daphne isn't showing any signs of letting that happen, they take it into their own hands. With a few shots of liquid courage, a pat on the ass, and a donated gold card, Daphne is unwillingly sent to meet her creature of the night, Connor.

Then move on to Karma & Melodies

Second chances at love don't come very often, even for a vampire who has eternity.

Kendra used to spend her days organizing events for Café Enigma while daydreaming about Marcus, the sexy lead singer of Normal Paradox.
But all those dreams of becoming Mrs. Rock Star died, along with her mortality, the moment Hector entered her life. He tricked her and seduced her into becoming a vampire, stealing Kendra away from Marcus forever.

Ten torturous years later; however, Kendra finds a way to escape Hector and is reunited with her lost love, Marcus. Now that she's found him she doesn't want to let him go. But, whispered threats from Hector begin invading her dreams. He's tracking her down, and she can feel it. He's a true monster, capable of unspeakable horrors, and Kendra knows what he will do if he catches them.

She'll have to make a choice: stay and fight for the man she's always loved, or protect him by leaving and keeping Marcus off of Hector's radar?

And finally, we finish off with a very naughty Halloween Fantasies:

Touted as the sexiest party of the year, the annual Halloween Fantasy Ball is the one place a girl can let loose and succumb to her wildest fantasies.

Disguised as a sexy vampire huntress, Sasha captures the attention of Dante, a real life creature of the night. For Sasha, meeting bona fide vampire is enough to fulfill one of her life long fantasies. She's ready to go home a happy woman.

But Dante has other plans. It is after all, a night of fantasies, and he has a few of his own to share.

I hope you will enjoy these stories as much as I did writing them.
