Welcome to The Crypt: Ciaran Dwynvil

Thank you, Julez, for having me as your guest today. I'm very excited to be here to tell you and the readers of your blog about my newest gay erotic paranormal fantasy, In Blue Poppy Fields. The book will please not only all fans of Belial, the Prince of Trickery, the Lord of Lust and the Antilight... aka Guardian Demon, but all readers who love vampires. 

But vampire stories differ greatly, you may say. Some have gloomy, horror atmosphere, some are full of crimson violence, still others brim with dark sensuality. How should you know ours would be to your liking? Apart from reading a sample chapter on Amazon or Smashwords to get a feel of the tale, you can learn about various aspects of a vampire's life in our world during In Blue Poppy Fields release tour. Let's first take a look at the book and then we will move on to the first topic. Vampires and sex.

In Blue Poppy Fields blurb:

A victim to another man's cruelty, talented and beautiful theater actor Adhemar Lebeau learned not to trust and not to love anybody but himself. Falsely accused of his master's murder, he has to accept assistance of mysterious Count Sanyi Arany to later discover his savior is a vampire. Forced both by a fatal illness and aftershocks of torture experienced during his unjust imprisonment, Adhemar agrees to the only possible cure. Rebirth.
Healed in body but not in mind, he guards his independence, free will and heart. He is not able to give love, only the fulfillment of lust. Yet, satiation of sensuous longing is not enough for his Sire and he knows it. When an eerie malady strikes and seems to deplete Sanyi's life energy for unknown reasons, Adhemar understands his fears and agrees to keep a street boy, Reyach, as a pet for both of them in hope it will soothe the unspoken worries.
Out of necessity he finds himself in the role of the only hunter in their company, and out of attachment he accepts the responsibility readily. Indulgence in blood and carnal pleasures fill his nights and vampiric powers give him the feeling of safety. Until the evening when he carelessly falls prey to High Demon Belial's plays that quickly turn into more than either of them has bargained for.
In spite of a hard start, Adhemar feels burning urge deep in his heart and no matter how much he denies it, the cause of the strange sensation is a budding seed of affection brought to life by the insufferable demon. But letting Adhemar learn to love somebody other than him is not what seemingly innocent Reyach plans.

Just from reading the blurb you already know that vampires in our world are very sensual beings. The act of Rebirth doesn't rob them of their manly power, nor does it diminish their lust. On the contrary.

Not only do they find pleasure in a carnal intercourse, their sensations feel multiplied compared to what they used to experience as mortal men.

Their heightened senses sharpen every perception. Whisper sounds like loud talk, taste of blood differs from victim to victim, the night sky glimmers with myriads of stars, the air is full of wafts of pleasant or not so pleasant aromas. They can learn to control the extent to which they allow themselves to be engulfed in such a gale of sensations. But one sense they seldom try to block. Feeling. The satisfaction it can provide is high and for many vampires carnal pleasures stand second only to the bliss of bloodtaking.

When they lust, their bodies tingle with need. It feels as if desire courses through their every vein and capillary. Extremely sensitive to touch, they derive delight from the lightest of caresses. More intense fondling drives them to bliss rather quickly though they can learn to postpone the moment of their fulfillment if they have a strong enough reason to do so. With lovers they care about, they can indulge in slow lovemaking from time to time as long as they are in charge of their sensations.

A vampire can pleasure his partner for quite a long time provided that the stimulation of his own body is limited. But edging will never become his favorite activity in bed. After a while it starts feeling like torture due to his high sensitivity. Prolongation of such sensual torment can drive him almost mad with need and if fulfillment is not granted, he can break down. 

Vampires differ in capacity to sustain such agony and every man whose lover happens to be a bloodsucker needs to learn the boundaries. Or risk a wild torrent of yet another need. Bloodtaking can bring the pleasurable suffering to a bearable level and many vampires love to combine lovemaking with bloodtaking or blood exchange. Though it is not an absolute must. Out of consideration, they can refrain from a blood play in bed, especially with mortal lovers.

Many bloodsuckers seek the company of mortals, enjoying the warmth emanating from their bodies. This tends to be a treat mainly in the foreplay and afterglow, while the moments of highest passion also require the highest self-control from the vampire so that the lovemaking doesn't morph into bloodletting. 

While vampires do not find their partners only among others of their own kind, sometimes another vampire is the preferred choice as he understands all their needs. 

Being connoisseurs of life, some vampires may prefer still another kind of company. They do not shy away from sensual encounters with garwalfs and varulvs (in other worlds similar creatures are known as werewolves) or with draculs, knowing that every immortal race provides different experiences to them. 

Few vampires get the privilege of lovemaking with demons, but if they do, it's an unforgettable treat for them due to the heat a demon's body engulfs them in. At times the difference in body temperatures can even feel too much. Yet still, once treated to it, they crave it with burning obstinacy and nothing else can compare... apart from the taste of a demon's blood. But that's already a topic for another article in our tour. 

If you are interested to learn more, you can find a list of topics and the schedule of the whole tour here.

We spoke about sex today and so also the excerpt will be a sensual one. This paragraph is from a scene involving Adhemar, Belial and two demon boys:

Drink,” the voice resonating in his head granted him a permission. Moaning loudly, he listened to the call of blood and plunged his fangs into the vein. The essence of life filled his mouth and Belial's shaft thrust deeper inside his body. And he... he pressed his hands against the balustrade and thrust back. Suddenly he couldn't refrain from that any longer, feeling the perfect scepter inside him brush against his sweet spot intensely. A gulp. A throb rolling through his body. A swig. A thrust. A sip. Gentle fingers attending to his nipples. A draught. The warm mouth sucking his shaft. A thrust. A swig. A sip. And suck. Again and again. In a wild storm of pleasure that was blinding him with the blaze of its hot lightnings. They bolted trough his body in all directions. Reaching every spot. Tingling every spot. Making his body crave for more and more and more. Musky scent of pleasure filled his nostrils with its heavy fragrance, and he knew he would come any second. Him and all of Avila.
