I went out last night to a brand new romance reader’s group a friend of mine is putting together. Eight women, all romance readers — who love their books hot hot hot — sitting in a restaurant that had a $4 drink special. So as you can imagine the talk got a little raunchy at times. (Really, I swear guys would not believe some of the stuff we discuss. We’d put their locker room conversations to shame, I’m sure.) At one point, my friend Nikki (yes, I named my character in Texas Tangle after her) posed a question for each of us (we even involved our long-suffering waitress):
Which would you “do”, a werewolf or a vampire?
My answer? No contest — werewolf, especially if it’s Adam from Patricia Brigg’s Mercy Thompson series, or Charles from her Alpha and Omega series (and he occasionally has a cameo in the Mercy Thompson series as well.) I do not like vampires, I told them. Except, I hesitated, I would do Rhage from JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and his own book Lover Eternal.
Since it’s too hot to do anything else but kick back and fantasize, I figured this would be the perfect question for a lazy, hazy Friday. Think about all the books you’ve read or movies you’d watched that feature werewolves or vampires and tell me, who would you choose? A werewolf? Or a vampire?
