Today I'm excited to have Carys Jones, author of Sunkissed, stopping by to discuss a few of her favorite vampire bad boys! Who doesn't love talking about that? Check out the synopsis of her vampire novel, Sunkissed, while you're here:
“Dawn Summers is dying. It’s 1853 and as the seventeen year old continues to fade away she has visions of the father she never knew, urging her to fight for her life.
In the small village of Fandova the only medical care is in the form of the mysterious Dr. Moralus who has a known penchant for bloodletting. Thomas, Dawn's fiancé, is warned against inviting his intervention, but feels he has no choice, he pleads with the doctor to save Dawn’s life…whatever it takes.
Whatever it ‘takes’ has some consequences neither of them expected. Now, it’s a hunt to the death, with both Dawn and Thomas determined to win.”
Top 5 Favorite Vampires by Carys Jones:
In honour of my new vampire themed novel, Sunkissed, I thought I’d put together a list of my five favourite vampires!
It was a tough job picking between all the sexy vamps out there but here is my list, let me know if you think I’ve missed anyone out or if you agree…
My number one simply has to be the sexiest Salvatore brother! He’s broody, he’s gorgeous, misunderstood but with a heart of gold. I adore Vampire Diaries but Damon is my stand out character.At the start of season 4 when he visits Alaric’s grave to pay his respects and says how much he misses him, I literally cried. He’s the hot, troubled guy who is sensitive and deep, in other words, the perfect package! He could bite me any day!
2. Eric Northman
Another misunderstood vampire is True Blood’s Eric Northman, the ultimate vampire Viking. He’s viscous and brutal yet his love for Sookie is undying. How she could ever choose Bill over him I’ll never know. Then again, how could Elena ever even consider Stefan when Damon is around…
I’ve always liked Blade though he is sort of an anti-vampire character since whilst being half vampire, he also hunts and kills then and he’s pretty effective at it! If you were ever in a tight vampire related spot he’s the guy you’d want on your side!
It took me a while to warm to Klaus from Vampire Diaries. I find his intense love for Caroline heartbreakingly endearing. If only he could stop being so bad all the time, like when he killed Tyler’s Mom.Still, he’s intense and brooding and I love him! Plus he’s from Wales, bonus!
5. Thomas Weeville
I had to include one of Sunkissed’s own vampires and personally, I quite like Dawn’s fiancé, Thomas. A lot of readers have found him ruthless and cruel, but like Klaus, Damon and Eric his motivations lie within a deep rooted love for the one that got away and for that reason I’ll always like him, no matter how bad he gets! And in the second book he gets pretty bad…
Who's your favorite vampire?
