Over the past few years, more and more successful romances have crossed into other genres.
We’re pretty familiar with the paranormal romances–vamps, werewolves, and Greek gods, oh my! But there are also science fiction and fantasy romances, western romances, romantic suspense, and so on.
Before my recent foray into the world of romance, I was a big fan of fantasy novels. Of course, my favorite fantasies were written by women and included strong romantic storylines, but that’s neither here nor there.
I am a fan of the crossovers because they pull together some of my favorite genres and ideas. I love a great romance that takes place in space, in a land filled with faeries and magic, or just here in our world with fantastical creatures I like to daydream about but probably wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley.
Now, if only those Winchester boys could just find some nice girls and settle down in season 6 of Supernatural… just kidding!
What do you think about crossover romances? Do you love them, or do you just wish the genres would stay pure?
