Enjoy three novella-length stories of love, lust, and vampire bites.

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.

Karma & Melodies:
Ten years after she was stolen from the mortal world, Kendra runs into the man she had always loved. But she's not longer a human and he's a popular musician on tour with his band. Can they find a way to make love work?

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. And this sexy vampire has a few fantasies to share.

These stories contain consensual sexual situations and strong language. Adult readers only.


Vampire Bites is a novella consisting of 3 short, hot vampire stories.

House of Immortal Pleasures was my favorite of the three. Not only was this story steamy, it was sweet too. Daphne is a woman who has been cheated on, and it has completely broken her. After months of being alone, Daphne's friends decide she needs to get out of the house, have some fun, and be with a man. She's not happy at all when her friends take her to a vampire brothel – she's not that kind of girl. Turns out that Connor isn't in his profession of choice. He doesn't like what he does, but he is forced into it. Daphne is the first woman that Connor really feels attracted to since he was turned into a vampire and forced into this job. He was really sweet with Daphne, and it was more than just sex. I felt like I could relate to Daphne, I really liked her character.

The second story was called Karma & Melodies. Kendra has been a vampire for 10 years now. Before she was turned, she had her sight set on Marcus – a musician who sang at the coffee house she hung out at. In this story, they are reunited but it's a life and death situation. Kendra must save Marcus' life, but because of that he isn't himself. I almost felt like he wasn't in charge of himself throughout this whole story, so I didn't feel like any of the feeling were real. It's hard to explain without giving things away, but because of this I didn't really connect with this story as much. Also, there surprisingly wasn't any sex in this story.

Last but not least, is Halloween Fantasies. This was a fun, quick read. Sasha attends the annual Halloween Fantasy Ball dressed as a vampire huntress. Ironically, the man she runs into at the party is a vampire – a real vampire. This is an erotic story – not really any romance involved. Actually, it was a bit on the kinky side. Sasha is pretty outgoing, and is up for pretty much anything.

These 3 stories all had a vampire connection, but they were all really different from each other. I'd recommend this to adult paranormal lovers, who don't shy away from vivid sex scenes.
