Happy Halloween Insight - Shudder Or Swoon!


Happy Halloween everyone!! To celebrate, I wanted to share a guest post that was recently posted over at Freda's Voice. I thought it was fitting so if you didn't catch it over there, enjoy!!

Werewolves – Shudder or Swoon?
As a lover of the paranormal, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays of the year. Everywhere you turn, you can find vampires, witches, ghosts and of course, it’s the perfect opportunity to gorge yourself on candy. I recently moved into a new home and I’m eagerly looking forward to decorating.  Can you imagine pulling up to my house and finding a cute sign outside welcoming you?
Since releasing The Mystic Wolves series, I’ve been particularly excited to get something wolfish, a reminder of Mason and Darcy. *Insert frustration here* I recently went to a store and wandered through the different aisles and was so disappointed. Is it just me being an avid romance reader but do the wolves in some of our favorite series really look like this?

Complete SQUICK!!
Can you imagine coming home and snuggling up to that? As I wrote scenes from Cherished, those tender moments between Darcy and Mason which even had me swooning, this was not what I had in mind. I think if Mason did look like this, all bets would be off and the anticipated mating ritual would be forever cancelled.  No, when I think werewolf, in particular my Alpha, this is what I have in mind.

Hello Mason!!

Now this is what I call sexy and the reason why I tell Darcy why she’s incredibly lucky. There are no hideous facial features or grotesque body parts, just glorious muscles and a well-toned body. (Come on, which would you pick?) Even turned, Mason wouldn’t look like this. Instead he would have the sleek body of a black wolf, one of grace and power. What kind of image is being projected to future romance readers if when they read the word “werewolf”, they shriek and run to hide? See why I’m frustrated?

The reality of it is I doubt next Halloween I’ll walk into the local Walmart and find a row of “sexy Alpha” masks. A girl can wish but it’s highly unlikely. Instead, I’ll grunt and roll my eyes, discretely trying to hide them behind the vampire masks. (Don’t even get me started on that, the vampires I read about do NOT have green skin. Sparkles maybe, but not green!) Meanwhile, I’ll keep writing the Mystic Wolves as I imagine them and keep the dream alive. *smiles* No need to thank me … happy drooling everyone!

Happy Halloween! Oh, they definitely need some sexy Alpha masks. Plus some hot vampire ones. Mmm, to see a hoard of Eric Northmans walking around.
