the blurb

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.

my review

Vampire Bites is a fun anthology of three yummy, and more than a little erotic, vampire tales from author Katie Salidas.  All have strong sexual situations, fully consensual, and are intended for mature audiences.

In House of Immortal Pleasures, Daphne’s friends take matters into their own hands and decide to get her past the hump of moving on after a bad relationship.  Their answer to the problem?  A trip to a local brothel staffed by vampires.  I didn’t particularly like how aggressive her friends were in pushing her into a sexual situation she wasn’t ready for, but the vampire involved was decidely yummy!  Kinder and sweeter and more sincere than anything she had known in her previous relationship, she quickly fell for him, and, unexpectedly, he for her.  The ending was a little abrupt for me, but romantic in it’s own way.

I think Karma & Melodies was my favorite of the three, by far the most romantic.  Kendra is a sweet girl, caught in the middle of a life she had never imagined.  She has finally escaped the brutal life she has been living and finds the man she had loved as a human.  Things come to an unexpected end, but it ends in a happy way.  I would love this story as a lead in to more, because both Daphne and Marcus were really engaging characters.

Halloween Fantasies, the final story in the anthology, is also the hottest.  It’s Halloween and Sasha and her friend have gone to the local fetish ball where Sasha meets the man of her fantasies, a real-life vampire.  An unexpected turn gives Sasha a surprise she never imagined.  Definately of the dark and brooding, but sexy vampire genre, this one is the scorcher of the trio! All in all, a fun read!
