Guest Author Katie Salidas

So this may be a shock to you , but I'm not the only gal who likes BAD BOYS. Today's guest is an author who likes a specific KIND of bad boy, and no sparkling morality police HERE—Katie Salida is going to give us a little insight into VAMPIRES! Welcome Katie!

Vampires are Sexy!

Hiya! I’m Katie Salidas, author of the new novel Immortalis Carpe Noctem as well as the new, sexy ebook House of Immortal Pleasures (On Amazon Kindle). Since I am a lover of all things vamp, I thought I’d tell you why vamps have such appeal (at least to me), namely sex appeal.

First off, remember they are a predator. It is in their nature. And, let’s face it women, we do like being chased (by men we want to catch us.)

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, that’s just a few of my reasons to find vampires sexy. I’d love to hear yours. What do you think makes a vampire sexy? And if you want to check out my story, which has a few of those sexy creatures of the night, stop by my website.

HOUSE OF IMMORTAL PLEASURES

Blindfolded and kidnapped, 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 into fantasy room 123 to meet her creature of the night, Connor.

It’s Connor’s job to seduce and entice Daphne to try all the expensive, sexual services on the menu. And he is prepared to do just that, until he peers into her mind and sees the damage done by her broken heart. After learning of her past pain, Connor’s plans change. No more is this a game of seduction to pad the pockets of the brothel owner. Connor decides to lavish Daphne with real attention and affection. Something she desperately needs. He will heal her heart the only way he can, by showing her she is beautiful, desirable, and sexy.



Immortalis: Carpe Noctem


Bleeding to death after brutal mugging on the campus of UNLV, Twenty-five year old Alyssa, is rescued by the cold and aloof, vampire, Lysander. Taking pity on her, he shares the gift-and curse-of immortality. She awakens as a vampire and is soon devastated by harsh realities of her new way of life: the loss of her friends, her independence, and her humanity.

As if having her humanity stripped away was not enough to make life interesting, Alyssa finds out her “turning”, did not go unnoticed by the rest of undead society. Old enemies; an ancient sect of vampire hunters, known as the Acta Sanctorum, as well as a powerful Vampire mistress, each set plans in motion to destroy both Alyssa and Lysander.

Only by accepting her newfound immortality, seizing the night, will Alyssa hope to survive. She and Lysander must fight together against two sets of enemies bent on destroying them both.

I have to say, you've made Tart-worthy use of innuendo, Katie--you've managed to undo the annoyance that the last three years of sparkling celebacy have caused me on the Vampire Front, so VERY well done!

maybe katie is true, as in kerala( we have the female version) called yakshi, always clad in a white sari, with her hair loosened reaching upto her thighs,and wamdering around on friday nights, they are supposed to be sexy & seductive, tempting males to aproach them later to be seen dead,
so for us when yakshi becomes a heart throb, its vampire here , cool :)

Excellent post. I actually don't have anything to add regarding the appeal of vampires. Not. One. Thing. It's nice to not trip over the sparkly, self-deprecating/sacrificing, no sex until we're married version when talking about these tantalizing immortals.

Love, love, LOVE vampires and this post. I just watched Daybreakers the other day. Ethan Hawke makes an awesome non-sparkly Edward - hot vamp!

B. Miller said...

Wow, this sounds like a fun series! I'll have to check it out. Thanks for sharing!

Ellie said...

This really sounds fun; I will have to check these out! oooh, haven't seen Daybreakers, yet ... There is something to be said, for the dead, vamp heat that they give off. They offer us
youthful looks, undying love and eternal life.
Yeah, sounds like a great plan to me. I wouldn't even have to deal with my diabetes anymore, no carbs! lol

Watery Tart said...

*nods* EXACTLY... what they said! *fans self*

*snorts at Ellie* Right. No carbs in sucking blood BUWAHAHAHAHAHA! I LOVE that!

Hayley said...

Nice job, *takes deep breath* my heart is pounding. Just very well done.

Thank you so much for the comment on my blog -- it was really insightful & helpful! I pyt that topic out there partly to get it off my chest, but mostly for the feedback, and you delivered, with sauce!

elizabeth mueller said...

Katie--so nice to meet you! I love how you made me feel involved with your MCs from your books--you're so awesome!

Katie S said...

I loved all of the wonderful comments on this post. I'm glad you all agree that sparkling is not on the list of what makes a vamp sexy.

If you do stop in an read my books please drop me a line to tell me what you think.
