22 Vampire Romance Books

Do you dread vampires? What’s your idea of them? Of course, many of you might say that even though they are scary, there’s nothing to be afraid of as they aren’t real. But some people (like me) who live in a fantasy world of their somewhere do believe in their existence. But don’t worry, that’s just what they are, a fantasy (at least I hope they are). So, to bring our fantasy world to life, here are a few vampire romance books you are bound to enjoy.

I am super into vampire stuff. I got a nack of it from web series and movies like The Vampire Diaries, Twilight, Hotel Transylvania, and others like them. I’m sure you might have watched or, at least, heard about them. But then I thought, like a reader, and it occurred to me that why not read books about vampires? There’s way more content in that field. So, here I am, obsessing over vampire books!

Is garlic actually effective in keeping vampires away, or is it just a myth? Do they really resurface when it is dark, or do they have some special talisman or magical equipment that helps them walk in the sun, like in The Vampire Diaries? There are so many questions when it comes to talking about these mysterious beings. Everyone has their theory, so we need our own. And to form our theory about vampires, there’s no other effective source than books.

Romance books have always had their appeal, and on top of that, when romance mixes with the mystery of vampirism, it’s got to be a hit. So, here are some fantastic books about vampire romance that you wouldn’t want to miss out on.
