Animals In Romance Novels

I was wracking my brain the other day trying to figure out what I could write another article about. I only write about 1-3 articles a month because I just can't seem to figure out things I want to write about. I've covered everything I can think of pertaining to caring for rats and hamsters and so I was thinking how can I bring the two things that mean the most to me together? The two things being reading and animals. So I can up with, Animal Characters in Romance Novels.

I love reading about animal shifters and how the author does as making me believe the character is really a wolf, or lion or whatever shifter they are using in their book. Most times I think they do a really good job at bringing aspects of the underlying animal to the surface for the human side to deal with.


  1. I think animals can make the book come alive more. It makes you get into the story like you are there..I love animals in romance novels.

  2. Cool article, and thanks for mentioning me. I'm pondering about adding a monkey as a pet in my historical WIP. What do you think? I could have some fun, I think.

  3. Savannah, I totally agree. animals can really make the story come alive especially if they are an integral part of the story.

    Shelley, I think that is a great idea. I don't think I can remember a money being in a book here recently. Especially if the monkey causes some trouble, that would be great.

    Oh and you are very welcome. I love your shifters.
