Hunted by Chaos. Protected by Death. Guided by Fire.
Terran is now the key to a world she never knew existed.
Normal was what Terran did best – house, job, dog, friends – rinse and repeat. She never knew demigods existed, or that you could journey to other realms, manipulate nature with your mind, or that the dead weren’t really gone at all, but instead existed in the Underworld. No, she lived the mundane life of any twenty-seven-year-old Alaskan girl…until she met Aiden, the complicated and gorgeous new local art gallery owner.
As their fiery relationship evolves into something more, Terran finds herself surrounded by a world of nightmares and gods, when the mysterious Aiden proves to be more than a simple man. Soon, Terran finds that she is not so simple herself. As an ancient evil threatens to escape and unleash all Hell, Terran must dive into a magical world she never knew existed to save them all…even if that means giving up her life to do it.
Who reads Paranormal Romance?
I really had to sit back and think about this question. My first instinct was to shout ‘everyone.’ Well, at least I think everyone should read paranormal romance. It’s the perfect bridge of a genre between my grandmother’s Fabio novels and the ghost/monster thrillers of today. It has all the best elements: mystery, magic, and passion. This subgenre of romance has opened up a window to two previously segregated groups: the romance readers and the paranormal readers.
At one point, there was this stigma that you had to fall into one group. A book couldn’t be successful or enjoyable unless you had it clearly defined. Thank the book gods for authors like Laurell K. Hamilton. She took the plunge and drove us into a world different than our own, yet kept the one thing that makes my heart jump: a great, gut-wrenching, emotionally-intruding romance.
Now, I think the paranormal romance genre is full of readers of all ages and backgrounds. The line once drawn in the sand to let readers know what was acceptable to read has been blown away by the creative treat that is paranormal romance.
