Follow Friday 2-2-12

"Feature and Follow" is a weekly post hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Each week they post a new question and we all join in with our answers.  This week's question...

Define what characteristics your favorite books share.  


Of course they all have to have a lust worthy male.  Usually that means an overprotective vampire, but I'll settle for even a human ;)  I like the alpha, independent, tortured past that overcomes all of that to fall in love and protect his woman at all costs which is basically every paranormal book.  The heroine has to have a backbone though.  I don't want her taking crap from this rough-around-the-collar guy.  I little witty banter always helps too.  Lately a lot of my favorite series have involved some greek mythology too.  Not required but an added bonus.
