My mom gave me eight (!) Feehan "Dark" novels for Christmas one year. They are, essentially, vampiric romance novels. There are vampires - the bad guys. There are the Carpathians - vampires who hunt the bad guys. I haven't read any of them. Maybe I should have her reading these at court. How bad would that be? A vampire bibliophile reading vampire romance novels at court.
(Obviously, she has a lot of other useful traits that caused her to be embraced in the first place that I won't mention publicly. I just like to add crunchy bits to my characters that make them seem more like real people. A lot of these crunchy bits are mundane things like modes of dress and media tastes.)
