From VBC: It’s hard not like a ruthless and devoted Viking vampire. Just ask Fiktshun, who wrote the Character Love Letter to him. Like me she can’t help but want Sookie to always pick Eric over Bill in Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series. Plus, he’s a hottie to the point the closest they could get to play him on TV was the jaw-droppingly delicious Alexander Skarsgard. Read on to find out just why Eric has stolen Fiktshun’s heart.
My Dearest Eric,
From the moment I met you, I was yours. Sitting there at Fangtasia, you had every girl’s eyes on you. You were captivating, like no other man, like no other immortal.
When you searched the faces of the adoring women who only wanted to be near you, I knew that it wouldn’t be me that drew your attention. But I still hoped. I still dreamed.
I longed to feel your eyes lock with mine. I longed to feel every inch of your tall, broad-shouldered, sculpted body. Every. Single. Inch. Right there in the bar. You were sex personified. And I wanted to know you, if even for just a moment.
I longed to hear you tell me of your past. The life you had before you became a vampire. And I wanted to learn of the centuries that changed you from who you were then to the powerful, calculating vampire you are today.
And even though I’ve only gotten to know you from afar, I feel as if I do know you. You may not be mine now and you may never truly be mine. Not completely. But when the day comes that I won’t have you in my life any longer, at least I will have my memories of you. Memories that will keep you in my heart for years to come.
You claim to be ruthless. You pretend as if you care for nothing and no one, but I know that not to be true. The choices you’ve made show me just how much you do care, how connected you can be to another. I only wish it was me that broke through your icy exterior and captured your heart.
You’ve offered your blood to save the life of someone you care about. You’ve been there time and time again to be the hero even though you say you aren’t one.
This is why I love you. This is why I’d be willing to give up everything for you. For me there is no other. Only you.
When you lost your memory, you showed a different side of yourself. A side that was hidden underneath all the layers you built up over the centuries that hardened you, made you cruel, and left you very much alone. You revealed to me a gentler side. A tender and passionate side that made my heart melt even more than it already had.
And while I love the side of you that is strong, that is sure and powerful and merciless, just knowing that there is this other part of you makes me ache knowing that you aren’t mine.
I know you’ve been with many, many women over the centuries and even a few men. I never imagined it otherwise and never thought you could be exclusively mine. I only ever wanted the chance to be one of those lucky enough to catch your eye. I dreamed of the day I’d be able to feel your cool body against mine. To feel your penetrating gaze. To taste your lips. Your skin. To let my hands trace the path of your muscles. To feel the strength beneath them. To feel your rock hard…abs.
I worry about you my love. I know I’m not one to question your decisions, but I sense danger headed your way. A danger that maybe even a man, an immortal, as powerful as you can’t stop.
Just know that I am here for you, if ever you should decide to change your fate, to choose a different path, to leave the woman who refuses to give herself to you completely as I would.
I would give my very last heartbeat to you, Eric Northman, my Sherriff, my viking, my immortal.
Yours for all of eternity,
Haven’t met Eric?
For those of you who want to meet Eric, you have got to start at the beginning with Dead Until Dark. It would be a travesty if you skipped. But if you just want to meet Eric when he was vulnerable, lost, confused and totally sexy, then Dead to the World is that book.
