It’s all About the Blood, Or Vamps, Shifters and Demons Make Great Lovers, Oh My!

Tired of the sex you’re getting now? Is the loving just too safe in bed, or elsewhere? Do you need a lover not of this world, someone beyond the norm? Look no further: try a vampire or a shapeshifter or a demon today. After all, it’s all about the blood, or should we say the flesh? Maybe even your very soul. . .

With vampires, you get benefits. It’s all about eternal life; staying young forever. Like my hero from “His Girl” in the anthology, Just Another Paranormal Halloween , Evan McPhail, found out when his long lost love, Aimee, returned back into his life thirty years later, still eighteen years old. Oh, there are side effects! Like aversion to sunlight, wooden stakes can kill you easily when thrust into the heart, and blood is pretty much the food of choice. But the upside is there’s no threat of cancer from tanning, the vampire sex can last all night if need be, and eternity with the one you love is super.

Shifters can become the animal a lover always wanted in a relationship. Okay, literally they change into an animal. They’re just willing to claw their way into your heart. The sex is phenomenal. And they mate for life. Least they do in my world of beast magic. Of course, there might be the usual angst and bad guys out to kill you, but still at the end, the HEA makes it all worth while in a shapeshifter romance.

Demons are the ultimate bad boys and gals. After all their souls are dammed and that’s why they’re in hell. Like the succubus, Elianta in Ain’t Nothin’ Like Succubus Lovin’
and the demon Familiar, Charun, in Being Familiar With a Witch . Except both proved that maybe they could be saved, all due to love.

Sex is great without love, but with love, it is like heaven on earth, no pun intended to the demons or vampires or even shifters. And that’s why maybe people read paranormals these days, not for the ultimate bad boys and girls, but that love can tame the inner demon or beast.

And the sex is not bad, either!

Hi Paty and Sapphire,

Enjoyed the post.

Shape shifters, Vampires and Demons--the bad boy forbidden love is what I love the best.

By the way, I really like the Halloween Anthology cover. The colors, the hot guy and weeping angel--Gothic Beauty!

I wish you the best!
