You know yourself if you’ve really loved something it’s much harder to explain why than it is to explain why you hated it; as Paradise Lost scribe Milton put it,
“For evil news rides post, while good news baits.”
Which basically means it’s way more fun to talk about the negative, whether it’s a feeling about a book or film or the latest celebrity scandal. Just recently, for example, a poll found that the Daleks have lost out to the Weeping Angels as the most favorite monsters from Doctor Who.
So let’s have some fun, and talk villains! Which villain, out of romance fiction, is the evillest? The Omega, from the Black Dagger Brotherhood series? A villain—such as Nick Gentry from Lady Sophia’s Lover or Lothaire from Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series—who then becomes the hero? Jack Randall from the Outlander series?
