Tiffany Allee’s Top 10 Vampire Romances

It’s no secret that I love vampires. I love them in horror and romance and everything in between. This is a list of just ten of my favorites—the full list of my favorites would be far longer than this. And since the line is quite blurry between the two, this isn’t strictly a romance novel list. There is some urban fantasy in here, too. They are in no particular order.

10

Break Out by Nina Croft

This book (and the whole series) is just so COOL. It features a vampire in space, among other interesting things. The idea surprised me at first, but Nina Croft has created such a rich and interesting world filled with fun characters that I’ve fallen in love with these books. The uniqueness of the world doesn’t overshadow the great characters.

9

Succubus Diaries Series by Jill Myles

Oh, Zane, how I heart thee. This series had fun angel worldbuilding, and I love what the author has done with the characters. I haven’t read the latest in this series, but I’m pretty sure I’m still going to love Zane. :)

8

Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost

I know that Vlad isn’t PC, but neither is Leila a pushover. While I’ve only read the first novel in this series, I’m excited to read the second. Great fun there is a great connection to her Night Huntress series.

7

Night Runner Series by Regan Summers

I love these urban fantasy books for the human heroine as much as the vampire hero. Sydney is smart and witty and fun to follow through her adventures. The vampire, Malcolm, is different from the average vampire hero. He wants to protect the heroine, but he doesn’t go too alpha and try to smother her (not that the heroine would put up with such nonsense). Love that. Plus, he’s just delicious, even if he can’t cook.

6

Wicked as They Come by Delilah S. Dawson

This is such a creatively done world. It’s fantasy plus steampunk plus the smexy goodness of (the fabulously named) Criminy Stain. You get romance, a magically transporting heroine, and bludbunnies. LOVE the bludbunnies. Such a fun series.

5

Immortals After Dark Series by Kresley Cole

The Immortals after Dark series is fabulous, filled with vampires, lykae, Valkyrie, and other fun creatures. Not to mention a very large dose of heat.

4

Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris

Okay, these books aren’t exactly vampire romance novels, but there is a fair dose of romance in them. To this day Eric is still one of my favorite vampires of all time. He’s wild and tough, stubborn and sexy. A tiny bit untamable. Lurve.

3

Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost

Oh, Bones. Your wittiness, smexyness, and utter devotion to the heroine is so hot. Cat…you’re cool, too. And the world created by Jeaniene Frost is a heck of a lot of fun.

2

Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead

I am totally in love with the series created by Richelle Mead (and am loving the spinoff series as well). She’s taken different vampire mythologies and put her own spin on them, creating a very interesting world full of different kinds of vampires and a complex society that ties them together. Also, Dmitri. And Adrian. *sighs*

1

Vampire Diaries Series by L.J. Smith

Okay, I’ll admit that I have not read these books since they first came out when I was in high school in the 90s (and back then I think there were only four books). However, this series was my introduction to vampires in literature, and I must have read them dozens of times. I loved them, and they started a lifelong addiction.

What are your favorite vampire romances?

 CPA-turned-romance-author Tiffany Allee used to battle spreadsheets in Corporate America, and now concentrates on her characters’ battles to find love. Raised in small-town Colorado, Tiffany currently lives in Phoenix, AZ, by way of Chicago and Denver. She is happily married to a secret romantic who tolerates her crazy mutterings.

She writes about ass-kicking heroines and the strong heroes who love them. Her work includes the suspense-driven From the Files of the Otherworlder Enforcement Agency series which revolves around a group of paranormal cops solving crimes and finding love, and Don’t Bite the Bridesmaid, a lighthearted paranormal romance (Entangled Publishing).

Don’t Bite the Bridesmaid by Tiffany Allee

  

Available on May 27, 2013 by Entangled Publishing

Description:

Alice Shepard needs one thing: a date for her sister’s wedding. And not just any date. A hunk who will make her fiancé rue the day he left her for her best friend. Her drop-dead gorgeous neighbor fits the bill—even if he is a bit quirky and never comes out during the day—and Alice has downed just enough appletinis to ask him. But she makes it quite clear that there will be no funny business.

Spending a week on a cruise ship full of humans while sleeping close to his sexy next-door neighbor sounds like a helluva bad idea to vampire Noah Thorpe. But his friends need time to get him out of a shotgun wedding—a vampire bonding that will tie his fate to a female vampire he’s never met. And Alice’s offer comes at just the right time.

What could possibly go wrong?

  1. miki

    i only know two oki 3 from your favourite list so i’m feeling a little inadequate but if you love vampire the penton legacy series by sannah sandlin is also great

    thank you for the giveaway

    • Tiffany Allee

      Hi Heather! I love being able to create fun characters and put them into interesting situations–the tougher or more awkward the better! I find the creation process from planning to final proofs extremely rewarding. :)

    • Tiffany Allee

      It’s hard to say specifically how books have influenced my writing, but I’m sure that everything I’ve read has to varying extents. I think that all of them have shown me how wide-ranging the options are with vampires and other creatures. Twisting old legends can result in very different takes on the the vampire myth, which keeps it fun and fresh.

  2. Rhonda Beyer

    How many books will be in the series, thanks ….

    • Tiffany Allee

      Hi Rhonda, there will be at least three books in the series for the three brothers, but I have a couple of side stories I’d really like to write, so maybe more. ;)

  3. Shanae

    Love series books, I have read a few of the authors listed.

    • Tiffany Allee

      I love series books, too. It’s great to be able to totally immerse yourself in a world, and be able to return back to it with new books.

  4. tiana

    Vampire stories are some of my favorites. Thank you for adding a couple of new authors.

  5. Jen B.

    I haven’t read any of those series although I have some of the books on my bookshelf just waiting for me to find the time. I do love vampires so I collect the books.

    • Tiffany Allee

      It’s tough to find the time to read everything! I’m really thankful for digital books, makes it less likely my TBR pile will kill me. ;)

  6. Melissa B in IL

    Great list and a few I haven’t read before! Thanks!

  7. erinf1

    Congrats Tiffany on the new release! This new book has been getting such rave reviews and I’m dying to read it! I’ve read about 1/2 of the series on that list and I’m definitely going to have to check out the rest :) Thanks for sharing!!!!

  8. nurmawati djuhawan

    hallo tiffany…thx u for ur book donatuion and congratulation for ur new release book..
    i love vampire story !!

  9. Chris Bails

    I love Jeaniene Frost Night Huntress series and the Anita Blake series by Laurel K Hamilton. Some other not on your list that are good are the Argeneau series by Lunsay Sands and JR Wards Black Dagger Brotherhood.

    • Tiffany Allee

      I think that the Anita Blake series was my introduction to urban fantasy back when the series first began. I haven’t read the Lyndsay Sands series yet, but I hear good things! Definitely adding it to my list. :)

  10. nat ogu

    im not familiar with some of these series i will def have to check them out

  11. Laís Roque Gonçalves

    do you prefer Dimitri or Adrian of Vampire Academy? Im team Dimitri,never liked Adrian :))

    • Tiffany Allee

      Ack! How can I choose? I think I preferred Dmitri in the original series, but now I’m back on team Adrian. That might change in five minutes. ;)

  12. Rebe

    I agree with Miki’s comment – I like Sussannah Sandlin’s series as well. I think I’ve read about 3/4 of the list you have, so I’ll have to check out the others! I also love vampires in Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series, and Anne Bishop’s Written in Red has an interesting take on Vampires as well, although the vampires aren’t the main focus.

    • Tiffany Allee

      I recently started the Guild Hunter series. Such unique worldbuilding and Singh’s writing is fantastic. I haven’t read Anne Bishop’s–I will check it out! Thanks. :)

  13. Make Kay

    I know about half of those authors, so now I have some more to check out. Also like Alexandra Ivy, kerrelyn Sparks, Stephanie Meyer, Laurell K Hamilton

  14. JenM

    I’m trying to figure out how a vampire who doesn’t come out in the daytime is going to do on a cruise ship. I guess I will have to read the book to find out.

  15. Jasmyn

    Ok..so I had three of those on my wishlist already, and now I just added a few more.

  16. Mary G loki

    Ive got a question! Have u ever been to a creative writing workshop?

  17. Jessie Harker

    Yay! New vampire book series that I haven’t read yet! I love the Immortals After Dark series and Wicked As They Come! Great books!

  18. Michele A

    Who is your favorite TV or movie vampire? You can list more than 1 if you need to.

    Can’t wait to read your book!

    • Tiffany Allee

      Oh I can’t just go with one. I love Angel and Spike–they’re probably still my favs. But Eric and Bill from True Blood and Damon from Vampire Diaries…can I collect them all? :D

  19. Shannon

    Sounds like a fun story. I love setup of a fake wedding date plus with the vampire element thrown in it is going to be a great ride I can just tell

  20. Joanne B

    Congrats on the release. I have to say I haven’t read any of the books in your Top 10 but I put them on my wishlist.
    Is there any genre that you’d like to write but haven’t yet?
    Don’t Bite the Bridesmaid sounds like a fun read. Can’t wait to check it out.

    • Tiffany Allee

      Thanks, Joanne! There are several genres I’d love to write in that I haven’t touched yet like epic fantasy and SFR. I also enjoy contemporary romance and mysteries. There just aren’t enough hours in the day!

  21. Sara Floyd

    Thanks for the giveaway! What inspired you to write this book?

    • Tiffany Allee

      Thank you, Sara! I was inspired by the idea of the new line at Entangled, and the idea of writing a paranormal romance that was fun and lighthearted. As for the specifics of this story, it started with the idea of how fun it would be to stick a poor vampire on a cruise ship and the hilarious situations it could put the poor guy in. :)

  22. Tammy

    I read this book and really liked it! Noah was quite the handsome & sexy vampire. I could have read more about Alice & Noah.

  23. leannessf

    I haven’t read the Nina Croft, Jill Myles, or Regan Summers series yet – thanks for the intro to new authors! Got to get those on my TBR list! The Nina Croft sounds especially interesting – space! :)

    Thanks,
    Leanne

  24. van p.

    I love vampire novels, and Vampire Academy is one of my favorite series as well. Don’t Bite the Bridesmaids sounds like my kinda book, will be adding this book to my wish-list!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  25. Eva Millien

    I love Vampire books and this one sounds great. I will be adding to my TBR. I agree with most of your Top 10, but I would to have Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series, JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood, Lynsay Sands’ Argneaux Vampires, Kerrelyn Sparks’ Love at Stake, & Laurell K Hamilton’s Anita Blake. Thanks for the giveaway.

  26. Vivien

    Do you prefer writing from a male or female point of view?

    • Tiffany Allee

      Hi Vivien, I find it easier to write from a female POV, but the male POV is fun to write because of the challenge of writing from a different mindset. Thanks for the question!

  27. Krista

    Congrats on the new release! I love the Vampire Academy series too and I love LJ Smith, but I prefer her Night World series.

    • Tiffany Allee

      Thank you, Krista! I can’t remember the Night World series as well (I must not have read them a million times like I did Vampire Diaries), but I remember enjoying all of her books. The Secret Circle ones were fab, too.

  28. Lauren

    This is just a kooky situation, and I would LOVE to read it! I mean, we all saw how well Dracula handled being on a ship full of humans, and I cannot WAIT to see how Noah curbs his appetite and still manages to appear normal to everyone. Oh and I love reading about hot vampires. Who doesn’t, right? :)

  29. Beth H.

    I love Zane but I absolutely LOVE Bones!! Love Immortals After Dark as well! Great choices!!! Oh, and Dimitri from Vampire Academy!

  30. Veronica De Luna

    I’ve read almost all the books you’ve listed but there were a few that I had never heard of. Definitely going to look those books up. Thanks for the recommendations. Also looking forward to reading your book. :)

  35. Gidget

    Who do you like more between Dmitri and Adrian, in the VA series?

      I like them both! I do like that Dmitri is a warrior, but watching Adrian come into his own…gah. I can’t pick!

  36. may
