Friend Friday ~ Rosanna Leo

Why I Love Paranormal Men

     I remember the first time a supernatural being turned my crank.  It was a delicious sensation and so new.  Don’t get me wrong.  I’ve been reading about ghosts and vampires since I was a kid, but Count Dracula and Nosferatu never managed to turn me on. 
     Count Chocula stood a better chance. 
     But then I saw the sublime Gary Oldman in the role of the afore-mentioned fanged nobleman.  Something changed in young Rosanna that day.  Something indefinable and wonderful was awakened in me.
     It was the first time a paranormal creature made my heart race for reasons other than fear.  Picture Gary if you will.  The velvet coats and top hats.  The brooding.  The pale skin and the broken heart.  Scrumptious.
     I’ve had a lot of time to consider it and have come to the following conclusion: there’s something incredibly appealing about the idea of an immortal man pining for me for an eternity.  With an undead lover, that is indeed a possibility.
     However, it’s not simply longevity that appeals to me.  Think of your favorite paranormal hero.  Generally he possesses other choice traits as well.  Superhuman strength is generally a given.  That’s a big plus.  Speaking as a woman who often has trouble opening jars, a hero with great brawn is a huge score.
     There’s also something to be said for lovemaking abilities.  Envision a Greek god or a centuries-old vampire or even a werewolf who ages at a slow pace.  These guys have been around the block once or twice.  It stands to reason that they might have picked up some interesting tricks for the bedroom…or graveyard, or your choice of venue.
     They’re also usually well-travelled.  I like that in a man.  I love the idea that my paranormal lover might have fought on the battlefield at Culloden or worn a toga in ancient Greece, or even danced at a Regency ball.  Think of the conversation!  If you choose to indulge in conversation, that is.
     As much as I adore the heroes of our modern world, I relish a tale with a sexy supernatural.  Be he Fae or were, vamp or god, send them all my way.
     I have a few good ideas what to do with them!

Juliet Baker is not looking forward to coming home after six months. Yes, the fiery brunette wants to make a go of turning her parents' farmhouse into a B&B. She’s just not looking forward to seeing the place where they died. To make things worse, she knows she'll finally have to face her cheating, firefighter ex-boyfriend.
Luckily, her sister has found Jules a boarder. Easy money, right? Not when she realizes the boarder is Captain Shane Gaskill. Not only is Shane a firefighter, he’s the town's hot new fire captain.
Jules is determined to hate all firefighters. After all, the men of that precious brotherhood protected her cheating ex. Shane, however, proves he’s different from the start. He's protective and kind, and she can't stop looking at his smoking, Viking-hot body. She learns, though, that Shane isn't so willing to love again either. He's been hurt, too. They both fight the sexual chemistry, and resulting tenderness, between them. But when a stalker begins to target Jules, they realize they can't fight their desire forever.
As the threats escalate, Shane and Jules are thrown together. The resulting passion overwhelms them.  But are they willing to trust each other and surrender to the flames of love?

    1. Well put Savannah! I agree whole heartedly! Thanks.

  2. So true Rosanna! There are some wonderful qualities to be found in a paranormal's the same thing with a superhero. I don't know about you but I've seen Avengers twice already!

    1. Hi Jenna- thanks for coming today! I have yet to see the Avengers movie, because I was so disappointed in Thor. Not the man, but the movie. I'm glad to have your recommendation, and am happy you're feelin' the love too!

  3. Loved the post! And you're so right. I definitely wouldn't say no... *cough* ;D
