The Power of the Female Vampire - Thaddeus Romans fictitious vampire authority

When a female vampire takes a mortal lover, she assumes complete command of the relationship. The so-called Alpha Male among mortals is a mere plaything compared to the power of the female vampire.”
                             In The Vampires among Us by Thaddeus Romans

In the movie "Underworld" the character of Selene, played by Kate Beckinsale, answers to no one but the master vampire Viktor. However, in the end she made her point with him. A little joke, so to speak. But it is no joke for mortal men who find themselves in a relationship with a female vampire. Physically she is his master, but so too is she an emotionally. The female vampire has been alive for hundreds of years and gained experience and relationships with men, and the knowledge of power and how to use the vampire novel, Unholy Embrace, Nessa, the vampire, is completely in control of her mortal lover Frank. He puts up a spirited battle to have a more equal relationship, but she is always two steps ahead of him. Only her love for him, which creates a vulnerability, gives him any leverage in the relationship. This is more than can be said of almost all relationships between female vampires and mortal men.

In Dark Journeys, short stories and dark poems describe perilous paths taken by mortals, vampires, and other creatures of the night. One story is about the surprise that awaits a mortal man when he has a picnic with the Queen of the forest. In A Problem with Werewolves a mortal male and his beautiful female vampire lover battle a pack of werewolves and a hideous demon. Dark poems tell of the painful and sometimes fatal relationships between mortals and vampires.If this sounds interesting, and I hope it does, please follow the link and buy the anthology for only $.99.

Unholy Embrace vampire novel by Neil Benson - sex with a vampire?

Unholy Embrace vampire novel by Neil Benson - sex with a vampire?

“May I look through your library?” she asked, examining my bookcases.

“Sure.” I was uneasy with her tendency to ask permission after the fact.

She looked at the titles for several minutes then pulled out Dr. Bova’s book on immortality and extending life. “Immortal life holds a fascination for you,” she said. “You’ll find living a long time doesn’t bring the answers to the questions you seek.”

“Am I to assume you know that from personal experience?”

She put her finger under my chin and kissed me on the lips. “I’ve seen the passing of more seasons then you could ever imagine. Perhaps, if I like you, I’ll tell you about them.”

“That would be interesting.” I'm being seduced by a vampire. Am I out of my freaking mind?

“Hush,” Nessa said, as if she could hear my thoughts. She brushed my cheek with her fingertips, pressed her lips to mine, and parted them with her tongue.

“Come.” She led me to my bedroom

Interview with Thaddeus Romans - Fictitious Expert on Vampires

Neil Benson: I'm privileged to have the opportunity to interview

Thaddeus Romans, one of the most widely recognized experts on vampires.

Mr. Romans served as an advisor for my vampire novel, Unholy Embrace.

Thaddeus Romans: I'm pleased to be here. It was a pleasure working with you on your novel.

Neil Benson: Mr. Romans, many people are curious as to how you obtained your expertise. Where did you go to university?

Thaddeus Romans: University? Who said I went to a university? Don't be preposterous. I learned about vampires by studying them throughout Europe and America. In the course of my travels I became acquainted with many vampires and humans they associated with. This was how I became an expert.

Neil Benson: Were there any books that were influential in helping you formulate your theories?Thaddeus Romans: Books? I don't read books, I write them. With all the interest in vampires, I have made some good money writing about these creatures.

Neil Benson: Surely you must have read some books about vampires.

Thaddeus Romans: Well a few. I read Dracula, by Bram Stoker, and Carmela by Sheridan le Fanu. The rest of the novels are a bunch of silliness.Neil Benson: What nonfiction books have you read? None. None were worth reading. That is why I did my research. I was the only one to go out in the field.

Neil Benson: Dr. Kathryn Ramsland has gone out into the field and conducted extensive research.

Thaddeus Romans: But she never claimed to have met a real vampire. All of her time was spent talking with a vampire wannabes. A bunch of mishugina people.

Neil Benson: How do you respond to people who say vampires don't exist.Thaddeus Romans: I invite them to spend a few evenings with me and meet some real vampires. That will end any doubt on their parts.

Neil Benson: Well, Mr. Romans, it's been a pleasure talking with you.Thaddeus Romans: I'm sure it has.
