Hello!


Hello everyone! =]


I just joined and I wanted to say ‘hi’.  I’m mssupafan  and I have been a lover of all that is vampire as far back as I can remember.  My interest in actually reading vamp novels has just become recent though.  Up until a few weeks ago, I was reading mainly English translated mangas /novels and a once-a-month selection from my RL book club group. I was commenting on a fan-fiction story with the writer and somehow we ended up talking about vampires and novels.  She gave me some recs and that set me off on my newest passion. 

My first vampire read was Demon Moon by Meljean Brook.  Not a lot of sex (I like LOTS of hot, melt your brain sex) for my liking, but I liked her storytelling and the characters.  I ended up reading the rest of the series, which switches to more demons and guardian angels than vampires, and liked all but the last one, Demon Bound.  Something about the characters didn’t do it for me. But now I have an additional interest, Demons! From there, I picked up Demon Fire by Emma Holly. She is my new fav author! She writes smex (aka=smutty sex) like no ones business.  I have made collecting all of her books my new hobby.  I just recently finished reading both Demon Daughter and Fairyville (no vamps or demons, but fairies but don’t let the name fool you), and Fairyville is my fav next to Demon Fire and Demon Daughter (both which I am re-reading for the 2nd time). 

I’ve also read The Vampire Shrink and Dark Harvest by Lynda Hilburn.  They were different, not bad, sexy, but not enough sex (yes I have a one-track mind haha). But something about her first person writing of the character, Kismet Knight, kinda irritated me.  I don’t know why.

I read a few comments here that rec Sherrilyn Kenyon’s books. I read one her books out of order so I just started her series from the beginning.  I finished Fantasy Lover in 2 days. I’ve been either getting them from the library, buying hard copies/paperbacks, or reading e-books.  I’ve been trying to decide which I like more, reading regular books or e-books.  I am waiting to buy a Kindle2.  I have created an Amazon wish list of vamp books to buy when I do. 

I have just started reading Under The Blood Red Moon by Mina Hepsen.  I picked it up at my local Half-Priced Book store because it looked interesting (and it was in the “Erotic book” section. =]  Anyone heard of her?  So far it’s interesting, no sex yet though. But I’m only on Chap 5. Haha

Anyway, I’m sorry for the long post.  I’m just excited that I found a vampire book club on LJ!  I’m looking forward to talking to and trading recs with everyone here!

I've been meaning to pic up some of Melajean Brook's books but haven't gotten around to it. The only Emma Holly books I've read are Demon's Daughter and Menage both were pretty good.

In terms of hot sexy vampire books: J.R. Ward's books are pretty steamy The Black Dagger Brotherhood.

And I might catch some slack for this because this author seems to be pretty controversial: Laurell K. Hamilton. I like her Anita Blake series but a lot of die hard fans hate the fact that in the later books there is a TON of sex. LKH's Merry Gentry is pretty sexy as well.

Sherrilyn Kenyon: Dark Hunter/Dream Hunter/Were Hunter Series, Kresley Cole: Immortals After Dark Series, Erin McCarthy: Vegas Vampires Series.
Hey =]

Thanks for the recs! Sherrilyn and Kresley are already on my list to read, but I hadn't heard of Erin McCarthy. I will add her and JR Ward. A friend of mine is also reading LKH now and rec the series. Tons of sex is good! XD

Meljean Brook is a very good storyteller. She likes to build up to the sex gradually. I was a little frustrated at first (I was like DO something already!) but once I figured out that was how she wrote, I was alright (kinda) with waiting for it. Only one of them focuses on vampire, but the others are good. I just didn't like the last one.

I finished Under the Blood Red Moon. It was...not as erotic as it lead me to believe. It was an interesting plot and characters, and the twist at the end was a surprises. I want to say it was 'cute' but it was a bit more than that. Heartwarming, interesting to a point, but I won't be keeping this book. I'm only keeping the books I want to read again, and I don't get that feeling from this book.
hi and welcome!~!
