I am a collector of vampire novels, and after reading a few recommendations, I picked up Nancy Baker's "The Night Inside" (which by the way is also "Kiss of the Vampire)." Do not make the mistake of picking up both books like I did. It is the exact same story.
Ardeth is a graduate student living at college. She just finished a project with two of her friends (also graduate students). She is saddened when one of her friends and ex-lover dies, but that sadness also becomes wariness when the second person she was working on the project with also dies. Also, she felt at one point that she was being followed.
Her fears become reality, when while jogging on campus one morning, she is literally snatched by two men, thrown in a van, and knocked out. When Ardeth recovers she finds herself locked in a cell, with a vampire in another cell next door named Dimitri Rozokov. She finds out that she has been kidnapped to be his food source. She is terrified of the vampire, but as time passes, she realizes she is even more horrified by her sadistic kidnappers (who are making x-rated, snuff films for profit using the vampire).
As the days pass, Ardeth begins to see the vampire Dimitri as a person, and as they get closer, she realizes her and Dimitri will have to come up with a plan to outsmart the kidnappers. But just how far is she willing to go to live?
I don't want to give too much away, but this is an excellent, excellent story. I really enjoyed all of the characters. I would highly recommend.
(Also as this is an out of print book, you can find used copies on amazon.com and other used book sites. Definitely worth buying

This was an enjoyable vampire novel. Baker does a good job of building up an empathy with Ardith, the novel's central character. Via a set of nasty circumstances she goes from being a conventional-contientious student to a wild-child vampire and sets out for revenge on the people who did this to her. This is the last thing she had ever expected to happen to her - and would never have happened when she was "good". This is a novel I'm glad I've read and I'm looking forward to the sequel "blood and chrysanthemums".

Unexpectedly Great Jan. 11 2007
By Christoffer Lerno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Baker's first vampire book is not perfect, but despite that it's probably one of the best vampire stories I've ever read. It's worth mentioning that I get perfectly bored with books where the protagonist is vampire just to be cool/erotic/superhuman. I love this book because tells the story of how someone deals with becoming a vampire.

good, dark, romantic Vamping Sept. 22 1999
By AnthroMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is just an early version of Nancy Baker's Kiss of the Vampire. If you can't get this one, you should try the later version. Baker does a great job of showing the slow transition from meek, well-mannered human to vampirism. She really lets you get inside Ardith's head as she makes the transition.
