Shiver (by Maggie Stiefvater) was the first paranormal romance I ever read. Mainly because I have a massive hatred for the angsty vampire "I find you so attractive I'm going to be cold, cruel and patronising to you so that you love me more," type. I'm not going to say it's converted me, because it hasn't. But it has proved that not all paranormal love interests are jerks.
Sam Roth: book lover, amazing guitar player, and werewolf = hot. See above fan art of him. I think his appeal is that he's not a controlling misogynist, but sweet, sensitive, and he loves Grace so deeply that it even makes a cynical, [liberal] feminist like me smile.
So thank you Sam, for making me a hypocrite. I won't hate you for it. And if it actually happens, I will be first in line for the movie.
