9781440432194: The Dancing Valkyrie

Blood and sex. Of course love, but not the way humans think about it. This is the recurring theme throughout The Dancing Valkyrie, a story about Mary Hoffman, librarian by day and exotic dancer by night. Mary, needing some time alone takes a hike along a secluded upstate New York trail. She is saved from two predatory young men by Beth, a beautiful woman slightly older than Mary. The two join together for the rest of the trail, becoming romantically involved along the way. Beth, it turns out is a vampire, and quickly introduces Mary to the mystical world she lives in. After inviting Mary back to her castle, built by her brother, Joseph, in a remote area, Mary is seduced into becoming a vampire as well. Joseph and Beth are hundreds of years old, and pose as brother / sister, but are husband and wife, or, in vampire terms, father and daughter. Thus begins the fascinating story of Mary's transition from human woman to vampire.

From the Author:

The primary thought behind the writing of "The Dancing Valkyrie" was to portray vampires as they might be if they were a natural creation not yet proven to exist. When I decided to write a vampire novel, I wanted my vampires to be of flesh and blood, not demons who are actually dead. This thought tied in with a second idea. I did not want to copy what others had written. If of flesh and blood, and fully alive, my vampires would be able to eat and drink, not be bothered by the sun or crucifixes, and would be able to pass as human. And since I had always felt a bit sorry for fictional vampires being unable to enjoy sex, it was natural for my vampires be fully sexual beings. In fact, sex would become the primary bait they would use to get their prey. To make them as human as possible required limiting my vampires from having supernatural abilities. They could have some talents such as rapidly healing from less than fatal injuries and have some psychic abilities such as mind reading and tricking the eye with hypnosis. But they would not be able to become bats or suddenly move from one end of a room to another. The Adirondack location was picked because there is something mysterious about the place. It is an island of wilderness surrounded by a sea of civilization. Hikers and hunters have been lost here without ever being found.
