I love MaryJanice Davidson, but has anyone read "Love's Prisoner" in the Wyndham Werewolf series. The start of that is just wrong. The entire book is premised on him raping a woman, her being pregnant and him locking her up to make her marry him. Only it's told in a "it was destiny and he could not resist her" way
She writes in a really cutesy way (I love the Queen Betsy series)
I could not get passed the first chapter.
Not read it but it sounds horrible. I always preferred the attitude Linda Hamilton took in Terminator 2, that there's no fate but what we make. I hate it when people are pressured into being with someone because there's some destiny that they need to be together. People being together because they want to be, is much more my idea of a romance novel.
I have mixed feelings on a series I read. It's the Witches series by Maggie Shayne, and while well written with a coherent story, a couple of points now bug me. In the series, people who die protecting other Witches are reborn immortal in their next life, and suffer a temporary death the next time they die, before recovering. They also gain some of the typical supernatural traits (better sight and hearing, though speed still is the same.)
At least one major plot point is the guy who died for the immortal Raven, a female lead, and who she waits nearly a half a millennium for, sees him and is convinced that they are meant to be together.
In a way, I give it a pass, because she didn't, to my recent memory, do any stalker things, and it wasn't quite happily ever after (she had to whoo him like anyone else.) Whether or not this qualifies, I have no idea.
