  1. I’m always looking for the alien romance personally, but I’ve been delving into some dragon shifter romance and romantic suspense. I see a ton of bear shifter romances out now. I even tried a few out despite my bear-phobia. 😆
    I never even thought about the Beauty and the Beast movie inspiring new books, but that’s never a bad thing since I love that story!
