For me, it is Cat and Bones from the Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost and Mac and Jericho from the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning . Both of these couples drew me in because they seemed so real, which is saying something when you are talking about paranormal romance. They seemed real, in part, because they didn’t take themselves too seriously. They laughed at and with each other. What is sexier than laughter? They also had a such a bond and hunger for one another.
I also don’t think it hurts that Bones has that awesome accent…“Careful, luv. I might be angry with you, but that doesn't mean I don't still want you. So if you do that again, I'll shag you right here, right now, and sod anyone who wants to watch.” Jeaniene Frost, One Foot in the Grave.
Their need to be with one another is often palpable, “One day you may kiss a man you can’t breathe without, and find breath is of little consequence.” Karen Marie Moning, Bloodfever. Happy Valentine’s Week!
