Welcome to Part 4 of Arial Burnz’s guest blog post on the Scorcher Blog Tour – Week 1! (If this is your first stop, you’ll want to go back to Part 1.
Thanks so much for having me on your blog, Lisa!!
Continuing with our topic Why Vampires Are Sexy: As mentioned before, most vampires in stories these days have heightened senses. This is what benefits the reader most, I think. The more of the five senses you bring into a story, the more the reader is brought into the experience. The feather-light touches of breath and lips against skin. The urgent pulses of panting and heartbeats caressing the ears. The anticipated taste of a kiss. The aroma of rose oil, musky sexuality and even the forbidden scent and taste of blood.
Which brings me to another allure of vampires…the forbidden. There is a dark side to most creatures of the night, which has the immediate label of “Bad Boy” or “Bad Girl” written all over it. There’s something sexy about danger! Most vampires engage in the forbidden act of consuming our life’s blood, or in some situations our souls. It’s a deadly line they walk, associating with mortals and the source of their sustenance.
In this excerpt, Broderick and Davina share their first kiss, and Broderick has a difficult time controlling the Hunger in him, which wants to devour her as much as he does:
You’ll have to go to the next blog to read that excerpt. I’m SUCH a tease! Before you do, let’s check in and give a purpose to your post. Continuing to excite the six senses as it pertains to vampires…we’ll explore the sense of sight in this post.
What do YOU find hot about what you SEE regarding vampires? Do signs of the supernatural excite you? Broderick has a silver core in the pupils of his eyes when the Hunger is aroused. Is a full, kissable mouth more titillating with a pair of fangs? Is it that “Bad Boy/Girl” aura about the vampire that is so exciting? Do tell!
