It started with talk of Halloween costumes, then it turned to the paranormal – vampires, shifters, witches and more – and became inspired by the writing of Christine Feehan, Thea Harrison, Lindsey Piper, Sherrilyn Kenyon and Kristen Callihan.
Now we ask you the burning question: When the veil between the worlds wears thin and things that go bump in the night abound, do you run away, run into their arms or crush them like a bug?
You’ve survived the type of childhood that would make the Bates family in Psycho seem normal, and become the type of cop that could give the Special Forces a run for their money. Then you wake up after being caught in a shootout to find: ‘A man [is] standing over [you]. Very tall, powerful. A predator . . . [and] Completely hot.’ He gives you back your gun when you ask for it. Do you run or do you stay?
Ask that same question again when you find out he’s not human.
Fae, vampires and dragons, oh my. You’ve spent your life keeping a low profile among the Elder Races, that is until that rat b*st*rd blackmailed you into stealing from a frickin’ dragon! Now you’ve been caught, pretty much red-handed, and are in a very difficult situation. Do you turn to the incredibly hot dragon you’ve just stolen from for help, or do you leg it?
You’re a Dragon King (gender neutral species name), but for most of your life you’ve been a slave and most recently a prisoner, known only as ‘the Pet’. You’ve escaped and are on a mission you know could change the fate of your entire species, but your exceedingly-hot, former jailer keeps getting in the way. Do you hog tie him and hoof it, or bring him along?
You’re washing up the dishes in the kitchen when there’s a flash of light, you turn around to discover: ‘A handsome man. A naked man!’ Strangely he looks exactly like the love slave your bestie, a witch, tried to conjure for your birthday present. Even stranger, since you’ve never believed in the paranormal, let alone an ongoing war between vampires, gods and who knows what else. What do you do? Run like hell? Fling the dishes at him? Jump him?
You spend your evenings skulking through the streets of Victorian London. You may be young but you’re no stranger to the supernatural and are ‘older than most Mayfair debutantes offered up for sale’. You meet a mysterious man – who you discover is incredibly fit when you sensibly check him for weapons – on one of your late night jaunts, he has you cornered . . . Do you fight, stand your ground or slip away?
Do let us know just what you would do. You might even turn this into a party game; we had hours of fun.
