by Cecilia Tan




What does it mean to love a vampire? Does it mean nights of pleasure, tempered with sweet pain? There is no more sensuous figure in dark fantasy than the vampire. Whether a powerful seductress who harnesses the night to her will or a mysterious and handsome demon lover who demands surrender in exchange for passion, Bites of Passion presents many incarnations of the ancient myth. Eight top authors explore themes of immortal love, the lust for blood (and other things), and the eternal struggle between light and dark. Sink your teeth into these stories of "the hunger," of need that can only be slaked after sundown, of the rush of blood and the scent of skin. Contributing authors: Jessi Holhart, Eric Del Carlo, Ed Fuqua, Rakella Valencia, F.R.R. Mallory, A. N. Cortez, A. M. Hartnett, and Thomas Marcinko.

Bites of Passion consists of eight lustful vampire tales.

Like most anthologies, there were stories in this collection that I absolutely loved and others that were just meh. One favorite was Bloodways by Eric Del Carlo. Very rarely do I find myself enjoying erotica written by men, nothing against male authors, but they never seem to get my blood pumping – this one did though. I loved how it differed from so many other erotic vampire tales, I loved the chase, the hunting of prey. I wasn’t a huge fan of some of the word choices (like "spunk"), but overall I very much enjoyed Bloodways. Another story I liked was The Ballad of Nosferatu by A. N. Cortez. It was an eerie, yet mesmerizing, blend of horror and lust. The Ballad of Nosferatu is definitely a unique take on vampire erotica.

I could go into every story, but I’ll leave some mystery. Overall, I enjoyed Bites of Passion. It wasn’t the best collection of Tan’s I have read, but that’s mainly due to the number of stories. Eight simply isn’t enough for me. But those eight tales were what I expect from Tan, stories that push boundaries and aren’t in any shape or form considered “vanilla.” Who wants a vanilla vampire tale? Blegh. So yeah, I would have liked more stories and I would have loved if some of the less enjoyable tales had been tweaked a bit, but all in all I enjoyed the book.
