Hot or Not? Werebugs
Shifters have become increasingly popular in today's fiction writing. There are werewolves, werebirds, werecats, werebadgers, even weresnakes. So, I must ask, where are all the werebugs? Is there no place in the paranormal romance genre for shifter insects? I mean, vamps are hot. Vampires feed by drinking the blood of their host. Does that make wereticks and shifter mosquitoes uber hot?? O.k., I must confess that I just threw up a little but I have to admit that if a PNR author wrote a novel featuring a weredungbeetle as the leading man I would *have* to read it. That would just be epic.
So what are your thoughts? Do you think werebugs could be hot? If so, which insects do you think would make the most steamy weres?
