Vampires Never Grow Old by Saloni Quinby – Guest Blog and Giveaway

Vampires Never Grow Old
For me, Vampires never grow old, and despite many traditional vampires being immortal, in this post I don’t mean it literally.

Seventeen years ago my first story was accepted for publication. It was a short erotic vampire tale. All these years later, I’m still writing erotic vampire fiction and love it as much today as I did back then. All my life I’ve been a fan of vampires.

When I was a kid my mother was into vampire movies and books, so for as long as I can remember I’ve enjoyed vampire fiction. I remember watching Christopher Lee’s Dracula movies with my mother. She introduced me to vampires in literature, starting with Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Chelsea Quinn Yarbro’s Hotel Transylvania.

Vampires are a fascinating combination of power, romance, animal magnetism and strangely enough, vulnerability. They can be terrifying or sexy and while I enjoy vampires in horror, I’ve always preferred vampires with a tender side.

In my Weapons of Redemption series, both the good side and the evil side of vampires are explored. The main villain inspires fear in his vampiric sons, but by the end of the series his vulnerable side is finally exposed, taking them by surprise.

Weapons of Redemption 5: Fangs and Floggers is my latest vampire story, but I don’t plan for it to be my last. As I’ll keep reading vampire fiction and watching vampire movies, I hope to keep writing about my favorite supernatural beings for a long time to come.

Are you a vampire fan? How long have you enjoyed them? What are some of your favorite vampire books and movies?

To lure his rebellious blood children back into the fold, ancient vampire Tarun abducted the hunter Adrian. He hadn’t bargained on his human prisoner being a match for him in every way–including his darkest desires.

Now Tarun is the captive and a player in Adrian’s carnal game–an orgasm for an answer. Though Tarun warns Adrian that he won’t like what he hears, the hunter is determined to uncover the secrets of the vampire’s twisted past.

The following excerpt from Weapons of Redemption 5: Fangs and Floggers is for readers 18 and over.

The door opened and Adrian stepped inside, wearing only black leather pants slung low on his narrow hips. Somewhere beyond his rage, grief and self-loathing, Tarun found himself appreciating the sight of Adrian’s broad shoulders and powerful chest covered in dark, curling hair. It tapered to a fine line down his flat abs.

“Feeling better?” Adrian asked, closing the door and strolling toward Tarun, his bare feet silent against the stone floor.

“So it turns out you’re just a hunter after all. I won’t mind dying by your hand, Adrian. Just answer one question, though.”

“Anything.” Adrian bent and brushed a kiss across Tarun’s forehead.

Funny how the bastard’s touch still made him tingle all over. His cock wakened and he hated being naked because it gave Adrian such a clear view of how he affected him.

“Why didn’t you just let me die at the house?”

Adrian’s cool blue gaze met Tarun’s. “You know I have no intention of killing you, any more than you’d planned to kill me when our roles were reversed.”

“Oh, I had every intention of killing you at first.”

“But not at the end.”

They fell silent for a moment, their gazes locked.

    I’ve been a vampire fan since I was a kid. I bought Bram Stoker’s Dracula from the Scholastic Press school booksale while I was still in elementary school – still have it too! I don’t tend to watch the newer vampire movies that are mess rather than story. But I’ve seen a lot of the classics including the 1922 version of Nosferatu. I also have some of the Saint Germain books. My favorite movie is actually the made for TV version of Dracula that started Jack Palance. He fits Stoker’s own description of the character better than most others that have played the role.

  5. I’m a long time vampire fan and lover. The first movie I can remember seeing was with my mom when I was a kid (single digits) and that was Love At First Bite with George Hamilton as the vampire. I still quote the movie at times when I want to make my mom smile.
    Some of my favorite movies are Interview With The Vampire and also Queen Of The Damned. The old black and white movies with Bela Lugosi are also a favorite thanks to my mom. Hell, I think as long as the vampire doesn’t sparkle I like it.
    As for books Black Dagger Brotherhood are my main favorites but nothing really comes close to my all time favorite by Maggie Shayne with her Wings In The Night series.

    I read your book “Darkness Therein” before in was at Ellora’s Cave it was one of the first Vampire books that I’d ever read and it started my obsession with reading Vampire books.

    I’ve enjoyed Vampire for as long as I can remember. Channel 12 and 17 in the Phila., PA area ran the classics like Nosferatu, Bella Lugosi’s Dracula, Christopher Lee’s Dracula along with all genres of Horror, Sci-fi and hard to find movies. I remember reading Bram Strokers Dracula in 7th grade & HAVING to look up the real Dracula. I got hooked on vamps, para-normals the & havn’t stopped enjoying “the Undead” since. Your “Darkness Therein” got me hooked on the romantic vampires.

  8. Hi, Mannouchka! I’m glad you liked the excerpt.

    Hello, Virginia. I agree, there are some great old vampire movies!

    LOL, Sheila! I still quote Love at First Bite, too. George Hamilton was probably my first vampire crush as a kid.

    Thank you, Shirley Ann! I’m glad you liked Darkness Therein. That was my first published novel.

    Hi Mindy! Thank you! I love Christopher Lee’s Dracula movies.

    I love vampires, they are sexy, alluring, dangerous and I could never get tired of them. I fell in love with them when I was 6 or 7 years old.
