The Vampire Who Loved Me
Book #2 in the Sons of Midnight mini-series from Harlequin Nocturne
By Theresa Meyers
Releases: May 24, 2011
FROM SWORN ENEMIES…
Dr. Rebecca Chamberlin hated nothing more than the vampires who had turned her loved ones into creatures of the night…until she became one herself. Now her experimental vaccine has become more urgent than ever, and has made her the target of vampire security chief Achilles Stefanos.
TO FORBIDDEN LOVERS.
Built like a god with golden hair and an irresistible allure, Achilles made her feel passion the way no mortal man had before. Beck could no more deny her craving for him than she could the hated bloodlust in her veins. But when her vaccine fell into the wrong hands, Beck has a difficult choice to make—one that challenged everything she’d always believed…..
Dark and dangerous, the Sons of Midnight are a temptation that few can resist!

Okay for a moment there I felt like Selena Gomez, Lord help me, but today to celebrate the big kickoff for The Vampire Who Loved Me I’m talking about loving what we read! Too often we’re put into situations where what we love to read is questioned.
”Oh, you read those books?”
“When are you going to read real books.”
“It’s just another vampire book.”
Well, my fellow fang-tastic fiends, it’s time to look at them and shout out a big, “Hell, yeah, that’s what I read and I love it!”
I love to read paranormal romances and I love to write them. It’s my thing. Vampires, shape-shifters, steampunk, urban fantasy filled with dark fae, elves, ghosts, witches and the like. They’re fun to write! I read them my the bagful. Some of my favorites are Yasmin Galenorne, Jessica Andersen, J.R. Ward, some of Linda Lael Miller's early vampires, Zoe Archer, Gail Carriger, Cherry Adair's Edge books, Christina Dodd, and Kim Harrison.
There are plenty of people who say, well older heroes aren't as sexy. Really? Take my hero in my latest book. He’s a Spartan warrior. Those were the toughest Greeks around. Remember the movie 300 with Gerard Butler, yeah. That. But Achilles is burdened with a profound handicap – he’s a Halfling. In my vampire world when a vampire and his/her mentor/maker bond together in a romantic way, they imprint with one another. The imprint is stronger than either vampire alone. It allows them to share each other’s powers, but also each other’s pain. So when Achilles, mentor, Ione, is killed by the Inquistion, it’s like half of him died, in a very literal sense. He’s a powerful warrior, with mad vampire skills, who can’t link to his emotions and who’d go insane without the contact to others in the Cascade Clan. Who says you can’t have a tortured hero who’s ancient and still every bit as sexy as today’s movie stars?
There's others who'll claim really smart women aren't appealing. Is that so? My heroine is a brianiac. One of those whiz kids who pretty much never had a normal life on several levels, first, because she was too smart, and second because she was mistresses’ child of a very powerful man (and no, not Arnold Schwarzenegger). But all the education, all the intelligence in the world can’t bring back her mother, or give her the family she’s always wanted…or keep her from turning into one of the very vampires she despises when here experimentation with a new vaccine to protect against the vampire virus goes terribly wrong. Who says being smart or powerful solves everything? Sometimes you have to go with your gut. Who says being smart ever kept you from being sexy?
