Vampire Romances: Part One

If the thought of risking it all with a hot vampire floats your boat, this list is for you. Disclaimer, I have not read all of these books but they for sure are on my never-ending TBR. Also there's a special mention of my mom's favorite series at the end because she really loves her vampire smut.

Crowns of Nyaxia Series by Carissa Broadbent

This is a duology with a novella and a standalone thrown in there that is set in the same world. While this storyline is complete, there are more books coming that are set in the same world but based around different characters.

First book current Goodreads rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.41

Second book current Goodreads rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.25

The Duology:

The Serpent & The Wings of Night and The Ashes & The Star-Cursed King

The story follows Oraya, who is the adopted human daughter of a vampire king. She enters a legendary tournament held by the goddess of death herself called the Kejari, where the fiercest warriors of the three vampire houses compete for the goddesses favor. She's forced to make an alliance with a vampire named Raihn. Who not only is a hottie, but he's also an enemy to her father's crown.

Along the way, what she though she knew about her father and home shatter.

✔️ Hate to love, slow burn, world building, magic, wound-tending but to his wounds!

My rating for the first book: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ .7

My rating for the second book: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Novella:

Six Scorched Roses

Current Goodreads rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.31

To be read in-between the duology books.

Set in the same world, it's a standalone novella. It follows Lilith who has been dying since the day she was born. Her town slowly starts withering away in a mysterious god-cursed illness. So she takes matters into her own hands and strikes a bargain with a vampire named Vale. She gives him six roses in exchange for six vials of vampire blood. It seems like a simple deal but gradually becomes something more...because Vale is babe.

I have not read this one, but it's on my list. (I know, what am I doing?)

The Standalone:

Slaying the Vampire Conqueror

Current Goodreads rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.20

This is a standalone set in the same world. It can be read after the ones above.

The story follows Sylina. She's sacrificed her soul, freedom, and even her eyes. Sylina has spent her life in service to the Arachessen, a cult of the Goddess of Fate, turning her into a disciplined killer. She's tasked with a crucial mission: infiltrate a brutal vampire conquerors (Atrius) army, gain his trust, and then kill him. Yet when she becomes his seer, she see's a side of him that reminds her too much of parts of herself she'd rather forget, forging a connection that only grows stronger.

Honorable Mention: My mothers favorite vampire series

The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series by J.R. Ward

This is, surprisingly, an unfinished series. The 22nd!!! book comes out in 2024. There are HELLA books in this series but my mother is obsessed and recommends them.

Current Goodreads rating of the first book: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.16

The only purebred vampire left on the planet and leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who killed his parents. When his most trusted fighter is killed, orphaning a half-breed daughter, Wrath must put down his dagger and usher the beautiful female into another world. Beth Randall is helpless against Wrath, his tales frighten her but his touch ignites a dawning new hunger, one that threatens to consume them both.

Unsure of the different tropes etc. but apparently there are a lot of good spicy scenes in it 👀

This was my mothers answer when I asked her to rate the series: "At least 4, probably 4.5. Maybe 5. I liked it enough I read them all."
