Ok, I'll admit it I wish I had fangs because vampires rock! My love affair with vampires started with Sesame Street, yes, I said it Sesame Street. I met Count von Count when I was about two years old and it was love at first count. He even had fangs (take that Stephenie Meyer).

As I grew older (meaning about eight) I found a little gem in syndication called Dark Shadows. Oh how I loved this show. The main character Barnabas Collins was this creepy yet romantic vampire. I’m so excited to see the remake with Johnny Deep as Barnabas!

My parents swore I was too young to see Bram Stoker's Dracula, but we had cable so I waited patiently for it to come on and it did and it was awesome! That movie still gives me the chills.

I was compelled by the beauty of Brad Pitt as Louis de Pointe du Lac in Interview with a Vampire. This is really what kick started my fascination (sorry Count). I read the book more times than I can remember and watched the movie more time than I'd admit! It is love and tragedy at its best!

I struck gold with the Movie and T.V. show Buffy the Vampire. I fell in love with Angel the same time Buffy did on the show. Again, other movies came out but none that stuck with me.

Dracula 2000 was good not as good as Bram Stoker’s Dracula but nonetheless it introduced me to Gerard Butler. Then there was nothing, absolutely nothing, except for Van Helsing, Blade’s and other movies, but I was never into the slaying of vampires unless it was Buffy doing the slaying.

I had all but forgotten about my love affair with Vampires until 2008. 2008 belonged to the Vampire. True Blood came on and bless HBO for that. To describe True Blood in a word Awesome! There fangs that retract, there's blood, love, love triangles, werewolves, and Eric, oh Eric! I Love that show… can you tell! Being Human was also introduced on BBC (and now SyFy), Aidan so sweet and scary at the same time. The Vampire Diaries, who doesn't love the Salvatore brothers (especially Damon) and their love triangle. And last but not least Twilight and the Vampire's that sparkle. I was in vampire overload and one happy girl!


You could say this vampire-loving girl is in heaven. I mean, since 2008 I have had my fix with Vampire T.V. shows, movies, and books, oh the books. Books well I'll keep that topic for another day and another post! 
~Try an Excerpt!~
Hades closed the space between us. “I will return soon, my sweet.” He took my hand, kissing my fingertips, before releasing it. Then the three gods and Dawn disappeared. 

Ben and I stood alone in the hallway as I moved closer to him. The lust from our kiss still lingered thick between us.

“Ben . . . I—”


“Shhh.” His finger touched my lips, stopping my rambling. “We have only a short time, and I need to plead my case to you; so let me show, rather than tell you why it should be me you pick for eternity.”
~Meet Lola!~ 
 

Lola is a fool for a love story, a sucker for a cupcake, and let’s not talk about what she’d do for a Klondike bar. She enjoys long walks on the beach and movies that involve chainsaws. By day she’s the HR Lady and by nightfall she puts on a cape to become a romance writer.
 Lola will be awarding a $10 Amazon or Barnes and Noble GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.
