It’s all About the Blood, Or Vamps, Shifters and Demons Make Great Lovers, Oh My!

Tired of the sex you’re getting now? Is the loving just too safe in bed, or elsewhere? Do you need a lover not of this world, someone beyond the norm? Look no further: try a vampire or a shapeshifter or a demon today. After all, it’s all about the blood, or should we say the flesh? Maybe even your very soul. . .  

With vampires, you get benefits. It’s all about eternal life; staying young forever. Like my hero from “His Girl” in the anthology, Just Another Paranormal Halloween , Evan McPhail, found out when his long lost love, Aimee, returned back into his life thirty years later, still eighteen years old.  Oh, there are side effects! Like aversion to sunlight, wooden stakes can kill you easily when thrust into the heart, and blood is pretty much the food of choice. But the upside is there’s no threat of cancer from tanning, the vampire sex can last all night if need be, and eternity with the one you love is super.

Shifters can become the animal a lover always wanted in a relationship. Okay, literally they change into an animal. They’re just willing to claw their way into your heart. The sex is phenomenal. And they mate for life. Least they do in my world of beast magic. As wereleopards, Devon and Montsho in my erotic male/male interracial paranormal romance, Dark Leopard Magic , discovered, thanks to the Dreaming. Of course, there might be the usual angst and bad guys out to kill you, but still at the end, the HEA makes it all worth while in a shapeshifter romance.

Demons are the ultimate bad boys and gals. After all their souls are dammed and that’s why they’re in hell. Like the succubus, Elianta in Ain't Nothion' Like Succubus Lovin'and the demon Familiar, Charun, in Being Familiar With a Witch . Except both proved that maybe they could be saved, all due to love.

Sex is great without love, but with love, it is like heaven on earth, no pun intended to the demons or vampires or even shifters. And that’s why maybe people read paranormals these days, not for the ultimate bad boys and girls, but that love can tame the inner demon or beast.

And the sex is not bad, either!

(No demons were exorcized or vampires staked or shapeshifters shot with silver in this article.)

Sapphire Phelan


Go beyond the usual, instead take the unusual that stretches the boundaries and find romance with Sapphire Phelan's aliens, werewolves, vampires, fairies, and other supernatural/otherworldly heroes and heroines. 
Finding a date was never more hellish. When Jordan Hudson borrowed his friend's A Dummy’s Guide to Demon Summoning and called up a succubus, he found that dating and making love to a minion of Hell proves to be more than a one night stand.

My Girl was more than just a song for Evan McPhail and Aimee Saunders; it was the music of their love and passion for each other. For nothing could tear them apart, not even death.
Then Aimee vanished.
She returns to Evan thirty years later, no longer human. To the tempo of their passion, they prove that doesn't matter.

I've always been attracted to the vamps but lately demons and shifter have sort of pushed them aside. Just wish I could find one for my own.
