Blood Red Pleasure, is the newest vampire novel by Peter Klein, and follows the latest exploits of four generations of vampires: Joseph, who turned Beth, Beth who turned Mary, and Mary who turned Ana.
Although Klein's creations can walk freely in the sunlight, and have other advantages over their more traditional counterparts, that does not mean that fitting into the human world is without its challenges, especially in a post 9/11 world, where cultural paranoia and technological advances in personal and national security coincide to make flying under the radar next to impossible for this family of immortal killers.
Unbound by human standards of morality, gender boundaries, or “normality”, these characters live solely for their own personal satisfaction, which is often tied up in the love they hold for one another, and the unrivalled bliss that is to be found in the merging of sex and blood,regardless of why the two are being shared to express love or deliver death.
With characters that are complex, and the relationships between them even more so, Blood Red Pleasure is a book that has a lot to offer vampire aficionados as well as fans of several different genres of erotica.
