Supernatural Bad Boys - The Ultimate Thrill

Supernatural Bad Boys - The Ultimate Thrill
September Guest Blog by Roxanne Rhoads

I think most women are programmed to be attracted to the bad boy, the broken boy, the dangerous boy- and who portrays the bad boy better than a supernatural boy?
Supernatural bad boys give a danger craving lady the thrill of a lifetime. They are the epitome of the bad boy stereotype with the added bonus real danger, supernatural strength and paranormal powers.
Plus they may have lived for a really long time so some girls may get their daddy issues covered along with that craving for the bad boy because let’s face it a guy that’s lived for decades, centuries possibly, should have infinite wisdom and the extreme added bonus of really knowing how to please to a woman sexually.

If he doesn’t after all that time then he’s an idiot. If he’s a vampire someone should stake him. Immediately. That way no other woman falls prey to the possibility of a paranormal paramour with promises of passion and pleasure only to be disappointed.

We get enough of that in real life.

That’s why we love our paranormal romances and urban fantasy books so much. The men are gorgeous, strong, dangerous and delicious. And they want us- normal, plain, human woman that finally can light that spark inside them that’s been missing for so long.

We get to fix their brokenness, tame their bad boy ways, all while being swooped up into supernaturally strong, muscle bulging arms and carried off to beds where we are shown unimaginable pleasure than no mere mortal could ever offer.

Ultimate fantasy right?
Seems so for many of us right now. Nothing’s hotter than supernatural sex with the ultimate bad boys.

I know I can’t get enough. I love to read about the paranormal hotties as well as write about them.

My September release A Halloween to Remember (eXcessica Sept 6) features Adena, a young woman hoping to someday meet the man of her dreams. When she encounters Dimitri at her friend Chrissy’s wild Halloween party she doesn’t believe she has a ghost of a chance with him until they get to know each other a little better and Adena realizes he may be the man she’s been hoping for. Too bad the next morning Adena wakes up alone- in the small cemetery behind the house. Halloween magic brought them together but will it be strong enough to keep them together?

It’s a fun filled paranormal erotic romance- heavy on the erotic. No vampires but there’s plenty of magick in the air.
If vampires are what you crave my novella Eternal Desire (Eternal Press) is set in New Orleans during Halloween. LizBeth, a paranormal researcher, is searching for the shadowy vampire that haunts her dreams. Instead of finding him she encounters a handsome stranger that may finally be the one man that can take her mind off the vampire. As Halloween grows closer LizBeth finds herself torn between a shadow and a stranger not knowing who to choose. The magic of Halloween may help her decide once the clock strikes midnight and spirits walk freely in the flesh.

I’m offering one lucky winner a pdf of both A Halloween to Remember and Eternal Desire - just a comment telling me who your favorite supernatural bad boy of all time is.

Praise for Eternal Desire:

After reading Eternal Desire, I would have to call Roxanne Rhoads a master of words. Each sentence flowed into another with a nice blend of old elegance and contemporary style… ~review by author Kiki Howell

Ms. Rhoads is an artist with words. She very tastefully wove the romance with the love scenes making the reader feel as if true romance and chivalry were still here… ~review by Bertena Varney

Eternal Desire won second place in The Pen and Muse’s 2010 Short Story Competition

I have to agree with Damon from The Vampire Diaries. I watch the show with my teenage daughters and they laugh at me when I tell them I think someone THEY think is hot - is hot!
