Maya DeLeina


I am Erotic Vampire Author Maya DeLeina.

I love anything and everything Vampires. Dark gothic imagery gets my heart pumping. Men with muscular physiques, pale skin and a downright right bad-boy look (not to mention fangs) makes me weak in the knees.

And this was a problem for me.

I was born and raised in Hawaii- not quite the right setting to allow myself to delve deep into these dark passions. I lived in perpetual sunshine so having a delicious fantasy of a sexy vampire brushing up against me also came with images of  3rd degree burns. Ouch! 

So the moment I relocated to Colorado, my love for vampires rekindled and my passion never burned brighter. The setting was just perfect; the cold, misty mountaintops, creepy graveyards, enchanting forests and howling creatures in the woods. Add to all of this the fact that I moved to Manitou Springs, a town rumored to have wizards, witches and vampires and I was truly at home.

Don't believe me about my town? 

We have annual Coffin races through the streets, a 500-million-year old underground world as a major tourist attraction, a haunted cemetery and fabled underground tunnels. Now how is that for the setting for a Vampires series? 


Set in Manitou Springs, Ambrose Heights is the gated community that sits hit up on the mountain, overlooking the town. The town’s residents don’t quite know what to make of the mysterious neighborhood. If they did some investigation, they would realize what they were living among. After all, Ambrose translates to Immortal. And slated as a seven-book series, you’ll have enough wild and seducing vampire tales to sink your teeth into.

5 of 5 stars

Recommended for: Adults only due to mature content
Read in August, 2011 — I own a copy

Flesh Fantasy is one of the best books I've read in years.
The characters stay with you, leaving you yearning for more.
The simplistic title does not do a great service to the depth of the
book which is remarkably well written, especially
considering that this is the author's first published work.
Once I began reading I could not put it down.
The story is compelling and exciting,
intertwining a romance with a suspense thriller.
This is a book that is definitely worth buying to keep on your
bookshelf for a reread on lazy days.
Funny, romantic and thrilling, a must read.

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding
(Published by: Siren-Bookstrand, Inc.)
An exciting story. New and unexpected twists to vampires that I have never read in vampire stories before. The eye thing is way cool! The sex is damn hot and very imaginative. The two lead male vampires are very well-developed and you fall for them immediately. This is an excellent start to a great series. Thank you Maya for the most entertaining read. Buy the book my fellow vampire lovers! No dissapointment in this book! BUY

A Note From Maya DeLeina

Q: What should a reader expect from a Maya DeLeina book?

A: They can expect an indulgence on their senses. I love books that can transport me to a fantasy that is filled with mystic enchantment and sinful illusion. So, when I write, I remember what excites me. I don’t just want to read a story, I want to experience it.  I spend a lot of time on the imagery. If I have a scene that descends the depths of a natural cave, I want the reader to know how the air tastes on their tongue; how the air tickles their skin in a way to make the slightest hairs stand on end. And when I write about intense passion, I want the reader to feel weak in the knees, breathless and longing to be kissed until their lips are raw with excitement
