Fever in the Blood by Rebecca L. Brown
Blurb-"Fever in the Blood" a novella by: Rebecca L. Brown. When Gabriel manages to find a vampire, he discovers that not all of the legends are true. Unlike the creatures of myth, Ruth (and others like her) must drink the blood of other vampires to survive - rather than sustaining the vampires human blood acts as a drug, destroying an addicted vampire's self-control, their personality and ultimately even their basic survival instincts.
Gabriel asks Ruth to turn him and Ruth is happy to do so for reasons of her own; her previous apprentice, Michael, has become addicted to human blood and following the death of his human girlfriend the true extent of his addiction is revealed. Ruth realises that she must turn Gabriel so that she does not starve. At the same time, she must decide what to do with Michael, who has degenerated into a dangerously inhuman creature.

Be Mine Tonight (Brotherhood of Blood, #1) by Kathryn Smith
Blurb-I am called Chapel . . .
For nearly six centuries I have roamed the night, a mortal man no longer. Would that I could undo the past -- when I entered the sanctuary of the Knights Templar to wrest from them the Holy Grail, only to discover the chalice I raised to my lips was not the sacred relic but a hellish cup of damnation. Now I shun the day and all things human, driven by an ungodly thirst. And yet...
Never have I known a maiden the like of Prudence Ryland, whose beauty and spirit awaken a heart I feared long cold and dead. But her young life is slipping away, and she also seeks the deliverance of the Grail -- unaware that the cost of her search could be her soul. I must help Prudence, for in six hundred years, no other woman has stirred my passions so. But dare I tender to my beloved that which she most desires -- the sensuous "gift" of forever that is both rapture and a curse: my immortal kiss?
