That’s right, it’s me, your friendly neighborhood vampire-loving book blogger, back with another post full of vampire book recommendations! Here’s my previous post, if you’d like to see it. This time, it’s all about the M/M* ones.
*Most of these books are not technically romance. I used the term ‘M/M’ because they all have male characters who are either gay or bisexual and/or in a relationship with another man.
I admit it’s been a while since I’ve read some of these, but I really enjoyed all of these when I read them, so hopefully you will too!
1. In Darkness Bound by Christine Price
This one is very character-driven and emotion-driven and is about a human with some sort of psychic powers and a vampire. They get captured to be experimented on but make a connection with each other while imprisoned.
2. Triad Blood Series by ‘Nathan Burgoine
A vampire, an incubus, and a wizard walk into a bar… (That is legitimately how the short story prequel for this book starts, if I recall correctly, and if that is not in the blurb, someone has missed an opportunity.) In this series, three lovable characters chose to form a triad with each other for protection (and possibly a future relationship) instead of joining groups of their own species. And in the meantime, they get up to some dangerous supernatural stuff. [Review]
3. Beautiful Monsters Series by Jex Lane
Sex, violence, torture, touching moments, action-packed battles, a bit of humor, vampires, and incubi. What more could you possibly want? The slave/master romance that starts off this series may not be for everyone, but if you’re ok with that, then you just might love this kick-ass series. [Review]
4. Life as a Teenage Vampire by Amanda Meuwissen
This YA standalone is sweet and funny with a cute friends-to-lovers romance between two best friends in high school, one of whom gets turned into a vampire. [Review]
5. Beckoning Blood by Daniel de Lorne
This one is a dark and blood-drenched story that follows twin vampires from their life in the middle ages to the present. One is an obsessive psychopath, and the other just wants to find love and happiness without his brother destroying it. [Review]
6. Mi Corazon Sangrante Series by Melissa Graves
This series has an adorable, sweet, realistic romance between a vampire and a human in a world where vampires have become known to society. It also has lots of INCREDIBLE bite-filled sexy times. [Review]
7. Arcadia Trust Series by Christian Baines
This is not really a romance, but it does have sexy biting and a violent (but consensual) sexual relationship between a vampire and a shifter. It also has complicated plots involving the supernatural and a fair amount of darkness.[Review]
8. The Immortal Coil Series by J. Armand
A young man has his whole life turned upside-down and gets thrust into a world of vampires and supernatural creatures in this action-packed, complex series. The characters are lovable—even the ones who probably shouldn’t be—there’s so much attention to detail, and there’s some adorable friendship and romance as the series goes on. [Review]
9. Hours of the Night Series by Irene Preston & Liv Rancourt
This series brings something new to vampire-human romance—a devoutly Catholic vampire. It adds a unique twist to the emotional and relationship struggles as the two of them work together to fight off demons and other supernatural threats. [Review]
10. Real Vampires Don’t Sparkle Series by Amy Fecteau
Not only is this trilogy about a newly turned vampire both funny and bloody, it’s got a great slow-burn romance, lovable characters, and, as the trilogy goes on, quite a bit of intensity, darkness, and emotion. [Review]
