I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been a vampire fan. My daughter is. She goes to sleep every night with Edward staring at her from her bedroom wall. I tend to get stuck in the gory details of having a vampire boyfriend. Like the fact that he’s UNDEAD. Kissing ice-cold lips and cuddling next to someone who feels like a Popsicle just doesn’t appeal to me. I guess I’m weird that way. And then there’s the whole drinking blood thing. How can you have a nice Thanksgiving dinner when your boyfriend’s staring at your neck and drooling?
But angels are different. They are very much alive. If it’s the dead of winter and you suffer from Seasonal Depression, like most people in my northern climate tend to do, then an angel is handy to have around because he’ll keep the house warm and bright—like a heat lamp. I’m not sure if angels need to eat—that’s up to the author to decide—but I do know that you don’t have to open a vein to enjoy a meal in his company.
Once our angel books have taken over, the question arises—what will be next? What nonhuman boyfriend will arrive in the next wave of paranormal romance? Fairies have been well represented, as have werewolves and wizards. So, I’m thinking leprechauns. Hmmm. Maybe not. What do you think?
