Top 10 Vampire Romance Books

Updated on November 5, 2015

The is undeniably something fundamentally romantic about vampires. They are at the same time powerful and dangerous, yet tragic figures. Many of the best recent romantic books have been based on vampires.

There several different kinds of romantic vampire novels, each of which appeal to a different kind of reader. You will find several of the best ones in our top 10 vampire romance books list.

Vampire Academy

What makes Vampire Academy different and in my opinion better than the other teen vampire books, is that it's set in a world that is much more real and gritty. Creating this spectacular backdrop is a testament to Richelle Mead skill as a writer.

In Vampire Academy two school going vampires: Rose and Lissa must master their abilities. Only then will they be able to protect themselves from a violent clan of Strigoi vampires.

I recommend getting the box set. The books are so compelling you will end up wanting them all.

Companions of the Night

Campanions of the Night begins when Kerry, a teenage girl, goes to the laundromat, at night to look for her brother's stuffed toy. While she is there some men drag a bloodied teen into the laundromat claiming he is a vampire. Kerry doesn't believe in vampires so she helps the guy escape.

So begins their steamy romantic adventure.

Sookie Stackhouse

The popular TV series True Blood is based on this series of books. In the books the focus is more on Sookie and less on the series's supporting actors.The books introduce many different supernatural creatures and goes into far greater detail than the TV show.

Though Sookie Stackhouse has plenty of romance going on it, it depends less on sex than the TV series does.

The stories are sufficiently different for any one who has watched the series to enjoy the books.

The Vampire's Kiss

In Vampire's Kiss Savannah's twin brother and his wife were brutally murdered. Now she is being hunted by the same monster. To survive and avenge her brother's death she makes a deal with a vampire.

He will transform her and in return she will be his mate for all eternity.

The Queen of the Damned

You cannot have a list of vampire books without the master of the genre: Anne Rice. Her books where made famous by the screen adaptation of Interview with a Vampire.

In this, perhaps her finest work, the vampire Lestat discovers an Egyptian queen vampire who has been sleeping in her tomb for centuries. Lestat's passion for love, life and music awakes and restores her, from her century long slumber.

Hollywood made a movie based on this book, but they mangled it quite badly. If you saw the movie, don't be put off. The book is much, much better.


Twilight is aimed at the young and the young at heart. The vampires though broody aren't that scary. The books are best described as an easy relaxing read. The sex in the books are also toned down for younger readers.

The book is a great easy escape for a few worry free hours.

The books also have a more light-hearted comedic edge, which went missing in the movies.

The Silver Kiss

The silver kiss is a very well written vampire novel for young adult readers.The book has all the elements: comedy, tragedy, romance and horror all in one.

Zoe is a girl with a troubled home life. She starts seeing a boy watching her periodically. When she eventually talks to him it turns out he is a vampire.

Den of Shadows

Sarah is a 17 year old whose world is black and white. Vampires are bad and witches like Sarah hunt them to save their victims. Sarah has trained all her life to hunt down vampires and kill them.

But as she finds out not all vampires are evil. She meets a brother and sister who have given up human blood and have been weakened by the lack there of. She can't bring herself to kill these vampires who aren't a threat to anybody.

Vampire Kisses

Raven is a 16 year old goth girl who always wanted to grow up to be a vampire. She is tragically misunderstood by her hippie parents.

She meets a real vampire boy named Alexander. Eventually she learns that being loved for who you are is more important than what you are.

Halfway to the Grave

Cat Crawfield has been a vampire hunter since she learned that her father was a vampire who raped her mother. Cat's mother fears her daughters paranormal powers.

Cat meets a master vampire called Bones. Bones offers her a deal. He will teach her everything he knows and in return she will kill certain vampires for him.

      An English professor of mine in college had a theory that popular/cultural interest in vampires peaks in times of sexual repression--as was the case when Bram Stoker published Dracula in the late Victorian era. He saw vampirism as a disguise for sex: penetration, exchange of body fluids ...

      I am not gonna lie here: I think True Blood and the Twilight movie saga are undermining adaptations of the books themselves. I have read the twilight series and I absolutely love how Stephanie Meyer twisted and controlled her own Vampires; however, I am not a huge fan of the movies.

      Over all, I think you definitely gave some good reviews on these books. Well done!

      Good hub!

      I just gave up on reading the third book in the Twilight series (Breaking Dawn) the other night. It's really awful! I was very disappointed in it. I haven't seen them movie yet, but in the case of the last two, the movies were a strong improvement over the books. Both are a little lackluster. But, I love vampire stories - even bad ones.

      I think the old classics are the best - Camilla, Bram Stoker's Dracula and The Guest, Varney and others in that class.

      I've picked up the Sookie series, but couldn't get past the style, as such. And, I couldn't read Anne Rice very well because it was practically illiterate. I wonder how that sort of thing gets past editors at top publishing houses???

      first of all lets clear this up loud and clear twilight saga sucks i hated it the best ones are vampire acadamy,the house of night,vampire kisses,vampire crush,sookie stackhouse,morganville vamps.,vampire diaries,and night world.P.S-i loved the last vampire acadamy book everyone should read it.

      Awesome. I love vampires. Good vampire books are hard to come by these days because everything's so commercialized and kids are going to grow up thinking vampires sparkle in the sun. I'm glad you included Rice, she's a genius. Queen of the Damned was an awesome read.

      I apprecite all the comments and suggestions made...

      My favorite of all time is Sookie Stackhouse

      I have read some of all the series mention..Anita Blake series is awesome...I also love the Dark Hunter Series.. loved far as Twilight series that is a good book for the under 21 people..but my daughter loves it and the vampire diaries...but for me I am writing down all the series that everyone has mention..and I will read them and make my own each their own on reading material..but thanks for all the suggestion..and Mindie I agree with your comments..

      Mindie 7 years ago

      Ok.... I know that everyone is intitled to their own opinion but yo dont have to slam books you may not agree with. I have read some of anita blake, all of the twilight series, all of the vampire diaries series, all of midnight breed series, all of the anne rice vampire chronicle series. For and almost G rating Twilight is good. For pretty close to an X rating anita blake and lara adrain are good. My favorite is Lara Adrian Midnight Breed Series. It has everything. Undying love, torment, action. And she offers a different view of vampires.

      My 2 cents: Anita Blake Series! I own the entire series and have read it all the way through about 4 times now. LOVE IT! I also own and have read almost every Anne Rice novel,every Kelly Armstrong novel, the twilight series (good read but childish), the entire Sookie Stackhouse series (another big fave!)and the Darren Shan series.

      Thank you jGaunt for writing a hub that has generated so many wonderful comments and additions! I added the names of 5 or 6 new series to add to my growing I just need to find the time to read them

      I love reading and always reread a good book. Out of the list, I would recommend Vampire Academy (best books ever!!!!) and the Night Huntress series, also great though often TMI when it comes to her sex life. As for Twilight, don't bother unless you're 10. The plot is somewhat boring and the characters are too perfect. I would also recommend the book Boys that Bite by Mari Mancusi and all the other books in that series.

      I have read some of those books. They are really good!!

      Try some of these:

      Night World by L.J. Smith

      Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith

      Morganville Vampires

      My Blood Approves by Amanda Hocking

      The Argeneau series by Lynsay Sands

      Evermore by Alyson Noel

      Sweep by Cate Tiernan (It's not vampires, but it's witches and the best withcraft series I've ever read!)

      I absolutely cannot believe that only 3 people mentioned Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series! Twilight is for 10 year olds people. Real vampires don't sparkle! The Anita Blake series is about 20 books long so far and starts off slow, picking up more sexual content by around book 5 I think... A great series for mystery/crime lovers and shapeshifter and werewolf fans too. A vampire series for grown-ups for sure!

    • profile image

      brittany 7 years ago

      Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series should be the number one on this list! If your tired of the teen novels check it blows pc cast and lots of others away! Book 1 is Halfway to the grave

      book2 is One foot in the grave

      book3 is At graves end

      book 4 is Destined for an early grave

      book 5 - comes out in feb2011

      I also recommend molly harper's jane jameson novels, and the bitten and smitten series!

      Cassie Palmer series and Dorina Basarab series. Both by Karen Chance and both great!

      You should read the (darkest powers) books... They aren't about vampires.. But it's about super naturals... They are very good! They are about a girl named Chole who see's ghost, and she gets put in a hospital because they tell her she is crazy... Then she finds out that the other kids there have some kind of power, and the escape to try to find a man who can help them, and figure out how the all ended up in the same hospital.... Just look up the books and read the details... It explains it a lot better than I do. But I read the books three times!

      Ahh.. one set I haven't seen yet on here is the "My Blood Approves" series by Amanda Hocking. They're not as PG as Twilight (which I have to say don't come anywhere near the enjoyment level that MBA series has brought me) but its not quite as XXX as The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series or the Anita Blake Series (both which I loved) also, the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Series was fantastic because it wasn't ALL about vampires. The Sookie Stackhouse Series is FANTASTIC but I always get "oh you mean the True Blood series?" No.. I mean the Southern Vampire Novels on which True Blood was based, not that the mini series isn't fantastic, it is but, I want to read a book, not have someone try to tell me what happens in the mini series without having read the books in the first place. I feel as though I've read all the critically acclaimed "vampire" books and they're all the same. I need something new to capture my attention. I don't want to read anymore "teenie-bopper" books since I'm way out of that.. I don't mind some naivety but I don't want to read "while bella stared into edwards eyes and he smelled her a lot." If anyone has ANY suggestions PLEASE let me know.

      House of Night series

      Evernight series

      Vampire Academy series

      Southern Vampire (Sookie Stackhouse) Series

      Twilight series

      Vampire Kisses Series

      Ok books..

      Morganville Vampire books (A little boring for my taste)

      On a side note: Werewolves shifters etc..

      Mercy Thompson books were excellent as well as the Alpha and Omega books which is sorta a spin off of the Mercy books...

      Great hub. Already read a few but definitely will look into some of these. The Darren Shan series of books are worth a look at (Cirque Du Freak etc), don't let the rubbish film, 'The Vampires Assistant' which is based on the books put you off! Though, the books are geared to teenagers so less romantic and 'steamy' sections than some of the other books listed here!

      I know (almost) everybody loves Twilight but i gave up halfway through the first book. I thought Bella was so whiney and generally annoying.

The young adult vampire books are good but if you are looking for something a little more racy and edgy then deff pick up these series you will not be disappointed

      I read the Sookie Stackhouse series AND watch True Blood on HBO - it follows the series pretty closely thus far. I mean, there are many differences, but you can still figure what will happen next if you've read the books. I absolutely LOVE both -- Sookie is a tough cookie, with a soft center. She can handle herself physically, but has enough brains and enough heart to really get to know each of the supernatural characters and to sympathize with them as best she can. Until it's dangerous for her...

      As for Twilight -- I HATED it. Not only is it's dialogue seriously lacking - not more than a monotonous "I love you more" "No I love you more" back and forth - the relationship between Edward and Bella is mentally, verbally, and eventually physically abusive. I hate the message it sends to the targeted audience of young girls. This is NOT what romance should look like.

      I read a lot of vampire books myself, my favorite series are sookie stackhouse, house of night, twilight and the vampire diaries.. How come no one has mentioned the vampire diaries by L. J. Smith, that series is amazing and by the by it's very different from the tv series.

      i guees my least favorite of these books are twilight, don't get me wrong they're amazing, however, I hate it when an author holds back on passion for too long, I mean why did edward and bella not sleep together before book 4? It annoyed me very much, and when they finally did it was only described shortly..

      to sum up i guess i like books like the stackhouse series more because the passion is more wildly described. the books have a raw edge, that makes them more for grown ups/old teenagers than for children.

      anyway if anyone knows what I mean and have read something that i haven't that fit's my taste, please tell me the name of the series..

      I liked this list. It was well rounded and hit each genre in vampire books quite nicely. I suggest adding the Jane Jameson series though. It starts with 'Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs', contiues with 'Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men', and finishes with 'Nice Girls Don't Live Forever'. They're by Molly Harper. She doesn't have any in the works, and isn't signed for any but she's moved on the contemporary chick-lit romance catagorey, so I kinda doubt more will come about.

      I love Companions Of The Night and read it for the first time when I was about 13. There was a few other ones that I enjoyed as well, including one with Tyger, Tyger transcribed on the first page. I prefer my vampires bad but good and enjoy more the ones that came out before the vampire craze hit publishers.

      Great hub! Vampire novels are my favorite; whether or not they are geared towards young adults or adult romance. I have all of Anne Rice's vampire novels plus the Twilight series. I have fallen in love with the Vampire Academy novels. Richelle Mead is an excellent author and I cannot wait for her next installment. I just finished Spirit Bound.

      Another interesting series are the Dark Hunter novels by Sherrilyn Kenyon. It takes a different spin on vampires but also incorporates Were creatures and Greek Gods, such as Artemis and Apollo.

      One of her recent Books, Acheron, tells the story of the mysterious leader of the Dark Hunters. It finally reveals why he is the way he is; what he is and why. It delves into the darker side of human behavior and the Gods. Absolutely loved it!

      I am currently reading The Chronicles of Nick and The Vampire Chronicles.

      This is the genre of novel I would like to write and am currently brainstorming ideas.

      Who knew there were so many books about vampires?

      I read the Twilight series more than once and I've read all of Ann Rice's vampire books. I have my favorites in the Ann Rice Series, although, they are all good.

      I very much enjoyed Stephanie Meyer's books, but have my suspicions that Stephanie is an Ann Rice fan and has read her books extensively.

      I tried to read another series, something about the Carpathians, but it just didn't grab me.

      Nice hub on so many choices out there.

      I have read many of these including: The house of night series ( liked it ) Sookie Stackhouse Series ( Loved It! ) I really Liked the Morganville Vampire Series! Of course the Twilight Saga. I have read all of the Night World Series.. They are an ok read... ( to short of stories for me though ) I loved Vampire Acadamy.. Can't wait till the 5th book!... Vampire Kisses was ok.. It wasn't my favorite.... I was thinking of starting the undead and unwed by MaryJanice Davidson...and the Anita Blake Series... if people agree that those are series worth reading... the Den of Shadows sounds good from what you all have said...and i may read that as well....

      I've read the complete Den of Shadows series. The first two books are actually about a vampire boy named Aubrey and in the first it's first person in the viewpoint of aubrey's blood sister. The second Aubrey meets Jessica, who knows all about his whole life, and wrote it and a book. Sara is only in the third book, then it goes to a girl who doesn't have a real named and hunts vampires.

      I have read the entire Vampire Academy Series. I ama huge fan of Richelle Mead. She focused on a more realistic and more dark side towards the vampire life. I loved how she made you feel connected to the characters.

      I saw the movie Twilight. Liked it a lot. I recall one other vampire book I read a year or so ago; which I thought was comical. Thanks for your hub.

      I can't believe that you didn't metnion Laurell K Hamilton. Her Anita Blake Series is amazing. Plus she is a much better writer than the whole twilight series. I recommend her to any lovers of vampire novels.
