Alec Murray, the Scottish vampire with a kiss to die for

Alec Murray, from Dracula's Kiss, is at my blog today...with a kiss to die for! So pucker up!

Dracula's Kiss Recipe:

  1. Coat the bottom of a glass with grenadine.
  2. Add ice and the black cherry vodka
  3. Fill with cola
  4. Garnish with maraschino cherries.

And here is the man himself, well, the man who inspired Alec Murray--it always amazes me how talented folks are in youtube with their music video editing skills. This is one of my favorite tributes to Stuart Townsend's Lestat.

I mean, what would your reaction be if you came across this man during a ball held in castle ruins connected to Bram Stoker's Dracula?
Oh, and he's dressed as Dracula. I guess he might look something like this but with a top hat and those funky-cool glasses.
Would you cease the opportunity? Cathela, the female lead in Dracula's Kiss, is suitably hesitant considering she's already involved. But how long can one resist his beauty? What finally sends her over the edge? What would it take for you to sweep back your hair and invite a Dracula's Kiss, or two?
This is the deleted scene that inspired the whole story of Dracula's Kiss, and the reason why Lestat played a huge roll in creating Alec Murray. QOFTD is a favorite movie of mine. Not for it's plot, yes I get that it's full of holes and the ending made no sense, but the whole 'feel' of the movie, the atmosphere from music and clothes to the cinematography and goth essence throughout. It's one of those movies that invokes all that I love about vampires. It's a shame they deleted this extending flying sequence, because it adds that little bit of extra connection between Lestat and Jessie, and might have made that ending seem less redonkulas.

Dracula's Kiss

Dracula's Kiss, a 1NightStand book set in Cruden Bay, and Slains Castle (ruins with actual connections to Bram Stoker's Dracula) Scotland, is OUT NOW!
Cathela's Office Halloween Ball is a complete bust. She spills out her Dracula's Bride costume, and her vamp fetish chases away her boyfriend. Only redeeming feature to the night? Necking multiple shots of Dracula's Kiss—a lush Black Cherry Vodka cocktail—and an interlude with a gorgeous man dressed Gary Oldman style.
No one comes close to satisfying Alec Murray's needs until he meets Cathela during some lame-ass party for bankers. One taste of her blood, sweet yet darkly dangerous, he knows she's perfect for him.
A night of goth bondage is planned for one. For the other, a night of sexual control is a must. A perfect fit. Alec is compelled to reveal his true nature, but can their relationship survive his dark secret?


  1. Sounds like a delicious drink! :) Loved Dracula's Kiss!

  2. That drink sounds delicious as does your book!
