Can't remember much about the books. Read them probably 20+ years ago. There were vampires, only I think they might have been called "wampires." They rode around on big black beasts. The protagonist could travel using a portal/doors. I vaguely recall there being a war amongst the wampires and the hero had to team up with one of them. I think the wampires killed their human victims during sex, or at least they could, and that was what my 20 something year old mind fixated on.

    Welcome to the site. You have a good start here. This guide might be able to help you remember more about the book. If you could edit in any more details that you do recall, that would be great. Every little bit helps us.

This sounds very much like Brian Lumley's Necroscope Novels

There's lot to cover but it includes (in it's history and subsequent novels)

  • vampires (Wamphyri)
  • vampiric flying beasts
  • shapeshifting
  • portals (via the Möbius continuum)
  • transmission/infection via sex etc.
  • War between Vampire/Wamphyr lords/ladies
  • Telepathy
  • Telepathy with the Dead.

Cracking reading.
