Title: Deliver Me from Darkness (Paladin Warriors)
Author: Tes Hilaire
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Tess Hilaire kicks off a new paranormal romance series with Deliver Me from Darkness. Paladin Warriors are former angels who protect mankind from vampires and demons. But even warriors of the Light are susceptible to the dark, and our hero Roland has fallen further than most. He was turned into a vampire against his will, and has as a result lost all his friends and family. For almost a century, Roland’s lived in the dark, skulking in the shadows, isolating himself and trying to fight his bloodlust. That becomes difficult when Karissa is thrust upon him. Karissa has numerous supernaturals after her, and needs a safe place to stay. Despite his better judgment, Roland is drawn to her, and no wonder. Karrisa’s the last female Paladin, and every male Paladin wants to claim her. Karissa has to overcome her initial fear of vampires (who she thinks are evil), while Roland has to come to terms with his fear of his vampire side hurting her. Roland eventually realizes that Karissa is his soul mate, and will stop at nothing to protect her.
Title: Samson’s Lovely Mortal (Scanguard Vampires #1)
Author: Tina Folsom
Genre: Vampire Romance
Samson’s Lovely Mortal is the first in Tina Folsom’s Scanguards Vampires series. Samson is a single white vampire who’s having trouble with his (ahem) equipment. He’s so worried about his impotence that he’s even spoken to his shrink about his problem. But he’s delighted that his all his difficulties disappear when Delilah crashes through his door. (What else would she be called, with a hero like Samson, after all.) Delilah is an all-too-mortal accountant, and for some strange reason, she’s the only person who Samson can get it up for. Delilah’s also got someone who wants to kill her after her, and Samson has his hands full trying to woo her, save her, and hide the fact that he’s a vampire. Samson’s Lovely Mortal isn’t anything like most of the dark vampire tales out there, but it’s a fun paranormal romance with lots of humor and some erotica thrown in. You’ll finish the book wanting to read the other books in the series!
Title: A Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark, Book 1)
Author: Kresley Cole
Genre: Paranormal Romance / Vampire Romance
A Hunger Like No Other is the first book in Kresley Cole’s hugely successful Immortals After Dark series, which is now already onto its 12th book. Lachlain MacRieve, the leader of the Lykae Clan of werewolves, has been imprisoned and tortured by vampires under the city of Paris for more than a century. He’s been slowly going crazy in captivity, but is spurred to escape when he scents the female who will be his mate on the Paris streets. But when he finally finds Emmaline, he’s disgusted to find out that she’s a half-vampire – but he can’t help being drawn to her. Emmaline is a hybrid vampire/Valkyrie who’s been coddled and over-protected, and has travelled to Paris in order to spread her wings. Emma the Timid, as she’s known back home in Louisiana, is in for more than she expected when she is abducted by a semi-deranged werewolf and pursued by the Paris vampires. Lachlain drags her off to his ancestral home in Scotland to keep her safe… and finds himself trying to win her over despite his earlier desire to punish her for the torture that he endured at the hands of other vampires.
