But what about the other side of this equation, the unsexy side. Once in a while one of the sexy ones will have to fight an unsexy paranormal. A good example of this is in Dragon Bound. Sexy Dragos and his love Pia must fight disgusting goblins. Dragos actually snacks on some when he changes into dragon form (yuck, I bet you they don't taste like chicken). Another example are the disgusting Lessers that the fellas from the Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward (BDB4EVA!) have to battle in the series. They smell like baby powder and bleed black blood. Not sexy at all. I'm more of a dark spicy scent lover myself.
So I came up with an idea to discuss the unsexy side of the paranormal world. Obviously there aren't any unsexy main male characters. I'm pretty sure that books wouldn't sell if they weren't sexy. Like who wants to put Lash on their Book Boyfriend list?! If you did do that by the way, hey, different strokes for different folks. Take this guy for instance:
Yeah, I won't be dreaming this guy at night if you catch my drift.
So...Tell It To Bells:
What are some of the paranormals
that you find to be unsexy and
did they skeeve you out when you
were reading about them?
Here is a list of paranormals that will never appear on my Book Boyfriend list:
Spiders or any insects
Rodents (rats, squirrels, rabbits)
and Aliens. Yes there are some unsexy ones out there.
Those blue ones from Avatar that my Jules loved so much. Hehe!
Yeah there may be that saying "never say never" and "don't knock it till you try it", but I can honestly say, if I was a female character in a romance book, I wouldn't try any of those listed up above. *snickers*
