This is another question over at Let’s Gab.

The choice of answers are as follows:

Shape-shifters – If I had to choose, I would definitely say this one, if only because of Nalini Singh’s books.

Vampires – I hate vampire books with a passion now, and find nothing sexy about ingesting blood.

Demons – Urrgh, I don’t get demon books at all

Angels – Not my cuppa

Witches – Nope

Ghosts – Nope

Fae/Fairies – I always equate fairies with children and I’m not really comfortable with reading about them having sex.

Psychic elements – I quite like, as long as the books are contemps.

OK, your turn now. If you haven’t already, go and vote. Don’t forget the other reader questions on the sidebar.


  • My first fave is psychic elements. I love that. Telepathy, empathy, all of it. Kay Hooper has some GREAT romantic suspense books with this in them as well as, of course, Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling world.

    Vamps- I still like ’em, but I’m pretty picky about which ones I’ll read and from whom.

    Shape-Shifters- Sometimes. I’m not a huge fan but for, again, Nalini Singh. I get so tired of the entire story focusing around the whole shifting thing. Now if the shifting is secondary, you’ve won me over. I truly do not want to know about the crack of bones, etc. as they shift. Ewww.

    Hi Karen,

    I read your blog on a regular basis. generally I’m a fan.
    You usually crack me up.

    this question has been going around the blogs, DA did it recently. I have been frustrated on how ghosts has gotten such a bad rap. I am grinning because, of course, my book includes a ghost as a main character. He is not the romantic character, but more on the cranky, arrogant side.

    Oddly enough, I would have never thought I would write a ghost story, but this story sort of fell out of my pen. Truthfully, I wrote in in long hand first and then typed it in. I never thought of it as a ghost story, but as a paranormal romance.

    Back to the point of your question.

    I don’t excude any romance genre. I’ve read poorly written books in them all and have found stunningly good reads in them all. If the title of a book or the cover catches my attention, I read the blurb. I am swayed by the blurb. And we all know that can be misleading.

    If I read several positive reviews on a new author, or that blurb sounds good, I’m willing to take a chance. Then there are those auto buy authors.

    I say yes to them all, but I am saying yes to the writer, not the genre.
