I Heart Shifters

935 Views

The_Lost_Boys_vs__Twilight_by_wildman10When I read Wave’s post entitled, “M/M Romances That Resonate,” it seemed to me that paranormal books weren’t really on the list, except for the Irregulars anthology. And while that is a terrific set of novellas, I was looking for more traditional paranormal types recommendations. So when Wave urged me to write one, I thought why not? I love the genre and probably 80% of my reading list contains vampires, werewolves, ghosts or other such creatures.

Why do I love paranormals?

I love the world building, the potential for great angst, the backstory of many of the characters. I mean, as a history teacher I would have loved to have been around for the American Revolution, the Renaissance or World War II. And if you are a vampire whose lived for centuries you just might have experienced all of those events. Think of all the history you would have witnessed. That fascinates me…and I think it fascinates other readers who love this genre like I do. After all, sexy ghosts, angst-ridden vampires and alpha shifters are hot! Just look at Amazon’s Top 100 and you’ll see I’m not the only one with a serious love for men who sprout fur during a full moon.

knotting-1Not to mention the many tropes that exist in paranormal books: alpha shifters, omegas, bonding, claiming, instant love, cursed vampires, mpreg, and knotting. (In fact when Googling knotting, I came up with this pic of Derek from Teen Wolf, one truly messed-up shifter…which led me to some Sterek knotting fanfiction…which led me to reading some Sterek mpreg.) The tropes are everywhere!
