Plot Type: SMR
In general, the stories focus on the ups and downs of the various romances, with more downs than ups most of the time. The plots serve primarily as breaks in the romantic cycle, and the characters are fairly shallow: handsome, chest-thumping alpha males and smart, sassy (but sexually submissive) females—all rather interchangeable. In general, most of the arguments and disagreements between each pair of mates is solved—if only temporarily—with a thorough sexual workout. All of the main characters have loads of emotional problems that they must work through (sometimes at tedious length). Lots of trust issues and self-esteem qualms: Does he/she love me for myself or is it just because of the blood match-up? Every other scene is a bedroom (or kitchen, or living room, or cave) sex scene, so if you like that type of paranormal fiction, you'll enjoy this series.
