It’s ok, you can admit it – you love vampire romance novels. You love the naughty sex scenes full of “throbbing members,” pale chests and blood loss. It’s cool, everyone has their guilty pleasure. So this one is for you, a list of October’s vampire romance novels.

Eternal Hunger: Mark of the Vampire by Laura Wright
Eternal Hunger follows Sarah, who is a doctor dedicated to removing the traumatic memories of her patients – like those of the stranger at her front door. But what he tells her that he’s a vampire, it is too astonishing to be anything more than the delusion of a madman. Yet she has seen his flesh burned by the sun and witnessed his inhuman strength. And never more has she felt so connected to a man, by both fear and seductive excitement.
Blood & Sex: Jonas: A Ravenous Romance by Angela Cameron
Another book featuring a doctor – Dr. Elena Jensen is an immunohematologist with DIACorp, the world’s leading medical research facility. On the eve of announcing her discovery of an immunity booster that will change the lives of every human on earth, a sexy new man walks into her life. Jonas, the strangely appealing owner of the new vampire themed bondage club, could be the perfect distraction from her otherwise workaholic life. But their worlds couldn’t be farther apart. Elena walks away, hoping that she forget Jonas and focus on her work, but he won’t leave her alone. Even in her naughty dreams, Jonas is absolutely alluring. The fact that he’s starring each night as a powerful vampire lover makes him even more irresistible. At least until a werewolf attacks her, forcing Jonas to reveal his identity and the truth of her dreams.
Everlasting Desire by Amanda Ashley
The clientele at Shore’s clothing store includes some of L.A.’s sexiest bachelors. But none of them affects Megan DeLacey as deeply as the dark-eyed stranger who strides into her boutique one evening – and keeps returning, night after night. Megan is drawn to Rhys even as she fears him.
The Keepers (Silhouette Nocturne) by Heather Graham Pozzessere

When Detective Jagger DeFarge, a vampire, is called in at the discovery of a body drained of blood, both the detective and Fiona must join uneasy forces.

Twilight Hunger (Wings in the Night) by Maggie Shayne

There are way more romance novels that came out this month (a couple dozen), but they’re all e-books. So if you have an e-reader, I suggest checking those out as well.
