I think it's a safe bet that vampires are here to stay as a common character in not only adult paranormal novels, but also in romance, and young adult novels. These vampires all have different characteristics such as their supernatural abilities as well as there...um...diet. We have our classic Dracula type vampires along with our fun loving (well maybe not Edward but the rest of the family) vegetarians.
So this leads me to the question, what is your favorite type of Vampire and who in particular?
I love vampires who are not only confident, but a little cocky as well. I want them hot, sexy, possessive and a heroic warrior. My favorite vampire would have to be Eric Northman from The Sookie Stackhouse/Southern Vampires series by Charlaine Harris. Sookie describes Eric as "handsome, in fact, radiant; blond and blue-eyed, tall and broad shouldered. He was wearing boots, jeans, and a vest. Period. Kind of like the guys on the cover of romance books.". Eric is arrogant, cocky, protective and sexy as hell. I wouldn't mind a little nip from him. So what about you? What's your favorite type of Vampire and who in particular?
