PLAYING WITH #VAMPIRE FOLKLORE FOR YOUR #READING PLEASURE -PART I @VAMPAUTHORMAYA #EROTICA #MUSTREAD


Playing with vampire folklore for your reading pleasure

Culture and history contribute to characteristic variances in vampire folklore. You'll hear about the garlic, read tales about the damaging crosses or stake through the heart in one instance, but find they're not applicable in others. And it's because of these variances that vampire genre of books and movies have differences in their plots and character development. The vampire traits are so diverse that Wikipedia has it's on chart page dedicated solely to vampire traits:

Check it out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_vampire_traits_in_folklore_and_fiction
                                




Within my own bookshelf, I created different vampire traits in each series/book because i love diversity.

Knowing that vampire lovers are drawn to certain traits, I'm sharing an overview of the vampires in my first series, Ambrose Heights Vampires. In the upcoming weeks, I'll share more of my vampire traits within other series/books on my bookshelf as well as what is on the horizon for the ever-loving creature of the night.

Rest assured, you'll won't find a trait listed here that mentions "Sparkling".

Enjoy!



Ambrose Heights Vampires - Vampire trait/Characteristics /abilities

Anya and Vampire Leader- Steffan from VEIL OF SEDUCTION 

  • Attractive, Alluring, Mysterious
  • Sensual - sexually charged and adventerous  

Anya and Steffan- VEIL OF SEDUCTION

  • Has mate pairing capabilities
  • The eyes- The Sclera of the eyes changes colors for a brief moment during the turning. The color reflected is like a "code" for their moral makeup. This color allows the maker to see what his/her newborn is made of so they  can develop a unique map in the upbringing of each vampire. 

  • Drinks artificial blood for sustenance, but are responsible drinkers if they take from humans.
Anya from VEIL OF SEDUCTION

  • The vampire family in this series has created an injection that distributes synthetic melanin and a pill that serves as a digestive tract. These are, however, temporary. It gives the vampires the power to feel human again, for up to six hours, only to have it slip away by the seventh hour. The compounds to create these serums have a damaging long term effect if they are used back-to-back, so no vampire knows a full day of being human.

Ambrose Heights Vampire Series Trailer



Flesh Fantasy 
Tonight, Rain Calisto searches for her man, and Rhys Matthews comes into focus. He is well-built and sinisterly sexy. In the same Denver nightclub, Armand Anastasio searches for his woman—Rain.
But the men are more than gorgeous.


They are vampires, and they are unmated.


A chance encounter lands Rhys and Rain together. Their attraction remains undeniably powerful and they fall prey to lust. With each passionate tryst, Rhys senses a connection that goes beyond the flesh. 


Unbeknownst to Rhys, Rain is a diabetic. Her insulin alters her biological makeup, disguising a revelation he isn't quite prepared for. Rain is Rhys's fated mate.
As they struggle with this knowledge, another bombshell is dropped. Rain's insulin-laced tissue creates a rare vampiric blood that can fetch a hefty profit, and Armand has always known this.


Is his attraction to Rain genuine, or is he just out for her blood?


This is the diary of Rain and Rhys. Recorded here is their transformation from a flesh fantasy to eternal love. ** A Siren Erotic Romance


Veil of Seduction
A newborn vampire. A powerful leader. An inconsolable woman. 
The shaping of their eternity all lies within the eyes. 

Steffan Matthews is the devastatingly handsome vampire leader of Ambrose Heights. He cultivates social order and invents concoctions that allow vampires to feel human once again. But Steffan also has a devouring obsession that brings him to his knees. 

Her name is Anya. 

Steffan sets out to claim Anya, a mortal ripe for the taking, as his mate. But the blackness in the eyes of his newborn should've served as a warning. 

Anya is off-limits according to the vampire creed. 


It will take the strength of the kinship, the purity of love, a hint of magic, and a subterranean guardian to shield Steffan against the wrath of Ryan Evans, protect him from the fate of the Nemesis, and bridge a passage to his rightful destiny. ** A Siren Erotic Romance
