Do you and your significant other seem polar opposites? He likes sports, you loathe them? You love the ballet, he’d rather take a beating that watch dancers on their toes. Well believe it or not there’re lovers who have even less in common. Let’s take a look.
Isabella Swan, human, and her boyfriend/fiancé/husband vampire Edmund Cullen. And then there’s Bella’s wanna-be lover, Werewolf Jacob Black.
There’s Nora Robert’s Circle Triology:
Hoyt the sorcerer in love with Glenna the witch
And Cian the vampire in love with the queen Moira
Blair Murphy, demon hunter, in love with the shape-shifter Larkin
And in Moon Watchers, the second in the hunter series, Jolene Sayer, werewolf hunter is attracted to Braden Knight, vampire.
(Jolene and Braden have just fought off a pack of vamps.)
I turned off the light, walked to the window and pulled back the forest-green drapes enough to see into the dark. With a soft whish, they fell into place.
Nothing stirred, just the continual fall of puffy, thick flakes of snow. “He left me when moments before a dozen Weres had been circling ready to rip me from limb to limb.” I spend a lot of time alone and tend to talk to myself.
I shook my head, disgusted. What the hell is wrong with me? I never get mopey or hormonal. Being a Were-hunter leaves no room for estrogen or emotion. “And let’s not forget he went out there single-handedly and took on the whole pack.”
A crack of electricity surged through me. Vamp or man, it had been a pretty damn impressive display. My only regret, he hadn’t permanently taken out a few more instead of just slinging them around. But then I guess even a vamp has limitations when a dozen or so Weres are nipping at his heels.
He’d been bitten! The thought brought me up short. I frowned. How could I have forgotten that for even a moment? What exactly happened to a vampire bitten by a werewolf? I shuddered. They didn’t teach you that in Werewolf Hunters 101.
How would it affect him? For one moment out there, I’d considered trying, and I emphasize trying, to take him down. A Were-Vamp would be formidable, its ability to create evil limitless. But I hesitated. What’s wrong with me? I’ve never been tentative about that sort of thing before.
Unfortunately, I know the answer: lust pure and simple. I put my head in my hands and groaned. “I can’t possibly be falling for a Vamp. Dad will kill me.”
