Tears of a Vampire by Carolyn Faulkner
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Domestic discipline lovers who enjoy vampires, this is the book for you. For those who loved the movie, "Age of Innocence", Tears of a Vampire may conjure up images of Gary Oldman as Vlad and Wynonna Rider as Elizabeth Dubois. In this paranormal romance, Vlad is a reformed vampire. His sadistic blood thirsty fighting is a thing of the past in spite of his warrior heart. In this time of peace and civility, he wants to enjoy life with a much loved wife. The wife he has chosen is an old friend's daughter, Elizabeth.

This story is typical of the historical domestic discipline genre. The husband is older and wiser. The wife is young and childish. The female always seems a bit foolish with her temper tantrums and emotional outbursts. Many times they are a bit of a shrew. Elizabeth fits this model quite well. She is a bit better than the stereotype because she is not shallow. She does love animals and is not afraid to get her hands dirty. She does need quite a bit of correction because she is unruly and irrational at times. It is surprising she can ever sit as she requires daily corrections on her bottom. In addition, she really needs maintenance spankings to keep her in line.

The kinky spankings and corner time are quite light and mild compared to the usual Ms. Faulkner dark erotica style. There is little SM and no D/s. The interaction is more Daddy dom with bratty sub which is interesting. The story moves rather slow through the courting phase. When the conflict arises the resolution seems to come too quickly and then the story is over. Still, this is a lovely well written piece. Recommended for kinky readers who enjoy historical domestic discipline themes with a paranormal twist.
