I love a story with a tight, fast-paced plotline that is a mix of romance (naturally), action, and some thrills. And lots of twists! But how to smoothly mix all that together and make it entertaining for the reader? Readers love the same things I do, and if they're looking for something a little chilling, then what better way to deliver than with werewolves and vampires?
Paranormal is my favorite genre because is blends all the above stuff and it tosses in the bonus not-quite-normal characters. HER VAMPIRE HUSBAND is, at its core, an arranged marriage story. My vampire hero marries the local werewolf princess as a means to prove to the opposing forces—wolves and vamps—that they can come together and live peacefully. So the romance, the learning about a new person, and coming to accept them are all there. But also, the couple is surrounded by a political upheaval that threatens them both. While they are falling in love, they must decide if that love is strong enough to see them through the havoc that is taking place all around them. The actions of the world (their individual tribes and packs) have a direct effect on the outcome of their romance. I think it provides some proper suspense, chills and thrills, and I hope readers will enjoy reading along to see if the newlyweds can triumph over all.
I have a copy of MOON KISSED to give away to one commenter today. I want to know what your favorite type of plot is in your reads. Straight romance? Romance combined with action and adventure? Sexy romance? Tell!
