I am not a romantic person, which is strange given that my main genre is romance, I don’t like romantic films and I am not very big on PDA. Which, is probably why romances I love the most are series like Shelly Laurenston’s Pride series and Immortals After Dark by Kresley Cole they all have the love stuff in, but they also have crazy females who are a little bit emotionally retarded and men whose main wooing technique is the basic shag-them-till-they-love-me, there aren’t too many heart to heart exchanges and the ones that are are short and to the point like this:
“Bad things happened to stop me loving you, but I got over it and I just thought I would let you know I love you.”
“Really?! What a co-inky-dink, bad stuff happened to me too! I am so glad we shared like this! I love you too.”
“Shall we have sex to celebrate?”
“Only if it is hot and kinky”
“Sure, I will go get the nipple clamps.”
I also like the story and how with each book Ruth, the insane yet cunning former Demon council member, gets stronger and stronger until you do begin to wonder if the Nightwalkers will be able to defeat her. I like that hint of danger in this series and I can’t wait till we get into a big confrontation with her.
So I love the plot and the world these books are set in but the romance aspect…just isn’t for me.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
