The Truth About Paranormal Romances

Why are paranormal romances so popular these days?

The release of the movie, Underworld, starring Kate Beckinsale, about a romance between a vampire and a werewolf has publishers scrambling for manuscripts dealing with paranormal romances. Unlike historical romances or classic romances, this genre is a lot more imaginative. Typically, there would be fantasy elements in the story. Either the setting is futuristic, or in some fantasy world or the hero, the heroine or both are not normal people.

Take underworld for instance. You have a Romeo and Juliet love story. This time, the setting is paranormal. Romeo comes from the werewolf clan while Juliet is from the vampire clan. Unlike a helpless Juliet, you have one who kicks butt, shoots down the enemy and saves the hero.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first Underworld movie and had to see the sequel, www.sfxfantasy.com - the official site for the sfx fantasy series of books that feature paranormal romance in a world where human warriors battle supernatural creatures.
