The Romance of Shifters, plus 7 questions you wouldn't want to ask a vampire lover.

French vampire caricature from Wikimedia CommonsWerewolves, vampires, shape-shifters, the almost immortal hero and the heroine gifted with super powers - why are these so popular in romance? Is it the beauty and the beast myth in modern clothes? Is it the shifters' animal charisma? The lure of the demon lover seems to be as strong as ever. The chance to change must be the ultimate wish fulfillment.

Of course even paranormal beings have things that put a crimp in their nights. Here are 7 questions that you might not want to ask your vampire lover.

1. "Ooo - Let's have garlic bread with that, shall we?"

2. (In homage to Mae West.) "Is that a stake in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?"

3. "I am so tired of twilight! Why can we never go out in the day?"

4. "That whole evening wear dress code is very tired, don't you think?"

5. "Why do you never wear the crucifix I got you?"

6. "The teeth are fine, honestly - why not check them in the mirror?"

7. "Why can we never invite your relatives for Christmas?"

Happy Haunting!
