Being the heroine in an Urban Fantasy has to be the worse job in town. In a paranormal romance, heroines get a hot, furry boyfriend who protects her from all danger. A historical heroine is just hoping someone asks for a dance. The only problem a contemporary heroine has to deal with is what to make for dinner or paying her rent. Even the heroine in a BDSM novel is having a good time being tied up. When an Urban Fantasy heroine gets tied up, an orgasm is not the next thing coming.
What sucks most about being an Urban Fantasy heroine? Just ask these ladies.
1. Nobody tells you the rules. Most of us have been in a situation where you feel like you don’t know what’s going on. Maybe you worked into work and they announce an emergency staff meeting. Everyone knows what’s happening, but not you. Imagine that being your whole life. Yesterday, you were a regular human going about your boring life and now someone has opened your eyes to the world of the supernatural who surround you, but no one gives you a welcome brochure or explains any of the rules. Just ask Anna Latham-Cornick from Patricia Briggs' Alpha and Omega series. Anna thought she was going on a date with a nice guy and ends up being turned into a werewolf. It wasn’t until she met and mated Charles Cornick, three years after being turned, that she finally learned what it means to be a werewolf and her true place in their society.
