Love in the night
Vampires can be powerful, conflicted, worldy, or just world-weary. But they're always set apart. Does the edge of danger in loving such a being appeal?
Amanda Ashley offers an explanation of the appeal of vampire romances, "He is mysterious, he is dangerous, he can be ruthless, but, for the woman he loves, he is tender, gentle, protective. To be loved by such a man, to be willing to risk the danger inherent in such a relationship, is exciting, thrilling, and a little scary."
