DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that blood is actually toxic for humans to drink? Ingesting a reasonable amount of blood can be life-threatening. This is because human's digestive systems just can’t handle blood. Vampire bats, on the other hand, have evolved to be able to digest blood without any problems at all. The risk of contracting blood-borne diseases such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV are also included dangers. When talking about blood consumption, we often picture vampires in our heads. A lot of us only know of them in famous books about vampires. Many studies exist on the actuality of vampires' existence. Recent arguments suggest that people's belief in vampires was born in the 18th century. when the first European accounts of them appeared. The term "vampire" itself first appeared in the English language in 1732, according to gothic expert Roger Luckhurst.

However, Archaeological discoveries of burials in Europe in the last few years do suggest something else. These discoveries long to prove that vampirism did exist even before 1500. This is much earlier than was previously understood by literary scholars. The body of a 500-year-old “vampire”, has long been on display in an ancient cemetery in the town of Kamien Pomorski, Poland. Even older burials have been discovered in villages in Bulgaria. In popular culture, there are even vampire non-fiction books that add to the mystery of vampirism. Only time will tell if humans can actually prove the existence of these beings, and if proven, will it be enough to convince the scientific word.

This Top 10 list chronicles some of the most popular and best examples of vampire romances (series or standalones) minus the teen angst."

The best thing about this book is, if you're a fan, there's a series to read so you'll have a lot to stay busy with. I just wish the vampire world had been done a bit differently here."

    "Lover Unbound had good and OK points. I was not "in love" with Vishous and Jane's story like I was with Rhage and Zsadist's books. Vishous's background was heart breaking and I definately hate his father. The dynamic between The Scribe Virgin and Vishous was surprising, enlightening and difficult at times. Then there was the conversation with Butch about their attraction and deep friendship. I enjoyed these parts of the book and felt they continued to create a more detailed world of the Brotherhood. Now let's get to Jane. She was strong, smart, driven; all the things I craved in a book heroine. I liked her relationship with Vishous. They were obviously meant to be together and I was all for them getting a HEA. I shed big sloppy tears over her fate even though I read other reviews and knew what was going to happen. Having said that, how it ended was just OK. It was slightly odd, but this was a paranormal book so nothing was off the table. I wasn't shocked, just thought "well that is different". As long as Vishous and Jane were happy in the end, I was fine with whatever JR Ward wrote. But I am still stuck on how you have sex with a ghost!"

    "When it comes down to love or duty, pick a side—and pray your heart survives. Death exists for one purpose and one purpose only: to sever the life-threads of the living. She does her job with pride and an unwavering commitment. Nothing ruffles her. Until she encounters Patrick Watkins. The Australian lifeguard pushes all her buttons—and makes her tailbone itch like crazy. And when her tailbone itches, it means trouble is brewing. Big trouble. Ven’s gut tells him that Death is taking aim at his kid brother. He should know—he died and was turned vampire while trying to prevent another failed murder-attempt eighteen years ago. Patrick is meant to do something important in the world, and Ven will do anything to keep him safe. Even take on Death herself. In more ways than one. As far as Patrick’s concerned, the whole thing is a load of bull. But what if everything Death tells him turns out to be true? How is he expected to save mankind from the worst fate of all—the Apocalypse? Especially when all he can think about is how quickly he’s falling in love with the most feared Horseman of them all… Warning: This book contains enough heresy to shame the Devil, more scorching sex than one person can handle, Oh, and lots of Australian colloquialism. A bloody lot of Australian colloquialism."
