for fans of vampiric sexual escapades Feb. 8 2006
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
These ten erotic tales showcase the erotic tales exploits of three Lone Star vampires, Don Rafael, Ethan and Jean-Marie starting in Reconstruction Era Texas to modern day trysts. These are not romances with happy ever after endings, and the key characters, the vampiric trio and their one night stand women are never fully developed. However, the escapades are torrid, passionate, and run the gamut of much of the range of sexual encounters including bondage. An interesting twist is that the females recount their most ardent capers with their supernatural lovers though once told lose the memory of their greatest night of lovemaking. These stories are Venusian hot, perhaps even pornographic, yet well written; fans of vampiric sexual escapades will enjoy this collection while looking forward to feature starring roles of the Texas vampires.

A compelling group of stories about Texas vampires March 15 2008
By K. Hinton - Published on Amazon.com
The Hunter's Prey is a collection of short stories about Texas vampires. The stories were all tempting with their cast of strong, dangerous men, and willing, passionate females. This is the first book I've read by Diane Whiteside and it makes me tempted to check out more of her collection. There are twelve stories in all, told in various points of view, but the following three were the ones I enjoyed most:

The Great Chicken Roost: a tale of Jean-Marie St. Just

The Great Chicken Roost is the story of a southern woman who gets into trouble when she sleeps with an older man and winds up pregnant. Unable to find respectable work, she winds up working as a boarder (read: prostitute) at a brothel. The madam their has strict rules about which customers can stay overnight, how long a girl can keep a man in her room, and which customers get better treatment than others. Our narrator ingratiates herself with her mistress and the other boarders when she brings home a blond vampire she calls Jimmy, who scares away a local politician notorious for terrorizing the girls. As an added bonus, Jimmy teaches the narrator that her job doesn't always have to be work.

Thirtieth Birthday: a tale of Ethan Templeton

On a man's 30th birthday, his wife gives him a present he's been longing for a long time: the opportunity to see another man make love to her. Told in the first person, from the husband's point of view, this is the story of how a husband and wife search for the perfect guest star in their bedroom and fulfill their fantasies with a virtual stranger. Ethan Templeton, the vampire in the story, is stronger, more dangerous, and more demanding than our hero narrator, and reading about him breaking down the walls between this couple was enticing to the extreme.

The Morning After: a tale of Don Rafael Perez, Ethan Templeton, and Jean-Marie St. Just

The Morning After is basically a Sex and the City-esque brunch with a group of girlfriends who are rehashing the fun they had at a Halloween party the night before. The story is short, sweet, and to the point, without going into excessive detail about their hookups with a group of vampires who infiltrated their party. However, reading about the women's different reactions to their erstwhile beaus, noting that some are blushing, some are reliving the moment even as they try to put it behind them, and others want to keep it private and sacred--refusing to tell, is entertaining enough without all the gory details.

This collection of stories is varied and insightful. Whiteside seems to have a very compelling take on the vampire myth, and I look forward to reading the first novel in her Texas Vampires series, Bond of Blood: A Novel of Texas Vampires.

I love this book Dec 23 2007
By AS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Hunter's Prey is one of my all time favorite books. It sets the standard for what a collection of novellas should be. The stories are detailed enough to understand the characters and their needs, and as a treat read one a day for a wonderful thrill. Each of the three vampires is unqiue and different from many of the paranormal stories I had read. Ms Whiteside is truly a gifted author.
sensual Dec 7 2008
By D. K. Stokes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Hunter's Prey is vampire erotica, edging toward literary erotica. And no, I can't explain what I mean by that. It's the tone, I guess, more than anything else.

Billed as "Texas vampires," which is true, as far as it goes, but someone who sees this and thinks "sexy vampire romance" is going to be disappointed. It's erotica. Period. No happy-ever-after, no world-building, no real character development.

However, it is excellent erotica.

The stories follow the same few characters through time. The stories are pretty varied, but they all have a definite erotica tone, not a romance tone, and yet it's not in-your-face crude, either. Very sensual.

A big bore! Aug. 3 2006
By Stephanie Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I looked forward to this one because I liked her River Devil & Irish Devil stories alot, but this was a major snooze fest! The stories were dull, characters one-dimensional & the sex was so-so. If your looking for a sexy, vamp read this isn't it. What a disappointment.
