I’ve not read this series so maybe I can win a set. I wonder why we are so obsessed with finding that other half …. that twin … in paranormal romance. In real life — people come and go. In paranormal love — you usually have a pair that works through its issues. Tragic pairings? Pairings you’d wish were undone? Pairings that make u scratch your head?

Sookie & Bill
Sookie & Eric
Anita & Richard
Anita & Jean Claude (I’ll stop there bc it got weird for me)

Others?

I won the trilogy!!!! Yay! Sorry for bragging but I love to win!!!

I think in real life as well as in PR books people are looking for that soul mate. That one person that completes them. Whether that person exists or not, that is the fantasy.

As for Anita Blake, it is obvious that Jean claude is not enough. LOL

Cool. You’ll have to let me know how you like that trilogy. It seems like a nice blend of paranormal and science fiction.
