Since I’m a lover of all things vamp, I thought I’d tell you why vamps have such appeal (at least to me), namely sex appeal.
For starters, let’s look at the basic make up of a vampire.
Firstly, vampires are predators. It is in their nature. And, let’s face it women, we do like being chased (by men we want to catch us.)
Next, vampires always seem to be chosen and turned at the peak of their lives. They are at their most virile. Males are hard bodied and don’t have an ounce of flab on them. (Every woman’s dream, right?)
They have piercing eyes that can reach into your very soul and mesmerize the pants right off of you. Not that many of us might mind that… LOL. Once they’ve got you in their strong, capable arms, you just want to melt. Their strength represents power and protection (once you know they want more than just your blood. LOL).
Of course, let’s not forget that they are the ultimate bad boy. And women, we cannot deny that somewhere deep down, there is a lingering desire for the danger and excitement they offer.
The teeth too have their own sex appeal. They are not only phallic on a subconscious level; they represent the very real danger that makes you tingle with anticipation. So let’s talk about that bite, shall we? Where do vampires typically bite? The neck. It’s a known erogenous zone. Need I say more?
Ok, I’ll say more. There is more to the bite. It goes a little deeper. It’s that primal hunger that makes them sexy. Here is a hot, hard-bodied man who hungers for you. It’s a very sexual thought that sends a thrill of excitement down your spine.
Beyond the physical, there is also the intelligence they possess. They’ve been around the block, so-to-speak. They have done and seen more things that we can possibly imagine. Which makes them capable of being a mate instead of just a boy toy. They are someone you can enjoy beyond the bedroom … for eternity.
So if you’d like to check out any of my work, including Vampire Bites stop by www.katiesalidas.com and read a sample or two. If you like what you see, all of my novels and novellas are available in every ebook format!

I think Edward Cullen from Twilight is the sexiest vampire. I love him. He is gorgeous. Please enter me in contest. I love reading about vampires. Tore923@aol.com
I think Eric Northam from the True Blood books, not the show, is the sexiest vampire. I mean, come on! He’s a Viking! ‘Nuff said:)

I have to agree with Julie about Eric Northman. He is just yummy. =)
But then again, all of our vampire bad boys are sexy!!
Eric Northman from the Southern Vampire Series! Alexander Skarsgård who play Eric in True Blood is hot, but the Eric I had in my head while reading the books was even hotter (is that really possible? yes it is!).
Thanks for the awesome giveaway!
I think the sexiest vamp is Bones from the Night Huntress series:)
Spike from Buffy. There is no competition!
I just cannot help myself – it has to be Eric Northman. Not the one on the show, but the one in the books – there is just something about him 🙂 oh stopped to daydream for a moment LOL. Thank you for sharing today and the lovely giveaway opportunity. This sounds like a wonderful series and I would love to read Vampire Bites.
I could never pick just one vampire! My favorite tends to be whichever I am currently reading about. If I had to pick one, I would probably go with Bastian from Lynsay Sands series, just because this was the first series I read other than Twilight (and Edward would make me fill like a pedophile even if he is over 100 years old).
There are so many sexy vampires out there, its hard to pick one! While I was leaning towards Vishous, I don’t think any one can beat Bones. He is the perfect example of a sexy, alpha vampire 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!
Yes, definitely Eric Northman, he is soooo hot!!!! Both in the books and True Blood.
And as Kanya, now when I read the books I picture Alex in my head 🙂
I kinda have the hots for Mick St. John from Moonlight, Alex O’Loughlin is hot!
Halloween Fantasies sounds particularly good! My favorite sexy vampire is probably the one I’m currently reading about, but overall, I’ll go old school with Spike. (Mike St/John/Alex O’Loughlin is mighty tasty too. I was one of the few people who watched when it first came out and was so glad they showed the rest of the series last summer.)
I’d definitely have to say Emmett Cullen.
My favorite is Bones from the Night Huntress series!
thank you so much great giveaway alot of good picks !
I agree Eric Northman is the sexiest vampire but and Damon from Vampire Diaries is very sexy!
Thanks for the giveaway!

To me, the sexiest vampires are the ones who are the most dangerous. I watched both Buffy and Angel on TV. I adored Angelus, Angel without his soul. He was pure evil and had a wicked sense of humor. He would whistle or sing a tune while he murdered someone. I found him utterly charming. I’m not sure what that says about me but there you go. 🙂

I love the fact that vampires are predators, to me it makes them sexy, they are like military soldiers in my eyes – strong and fiercely protective for their life and the ones they love.
I would have to say my favorite vampire like many of you have already stated is Eric from True Blood. The vamp is totally Hot!
