As long time readers of this blog know, I absolutely love all things Paranormal. So much so, that when the position for the Publicity Director of Entangled Publishing's Paranormal Romance line, Covet, opened up, there wasn't even a moment's hesitation in knowing this position was perfect for me. Covets have all the sexiness, emotion, and happily ever after that readers have come to expect and love from Entangled. They are firmly grounded in the contemporary world, but each novel brings in supernatural twists, breaking the contemporary and paranormal rules, alike.

I love being able to combine work and play, so I'll be featuring all of our authors as they release their new titles. Each one will be stopping by to share their top 5 favorite paranormal characters. Today's guest is Susannah Scott whose new title Luck of the Dragon features nothing other than an uber sexy dragon shifter and the woman who brings him to his knees. This is one you won't want to miss! So, please join me in welcoming Susannah!
I am thrilled to be here today discussing my top five favorite paranormal characters.
I have to admit, until last week I was a total House of Stark fan. Loved Rob. Loved the wolves. Loved John Snow. Then Rob and the wolf met a sad end and John Snow abandoned Ygritte in a flurry of hooves. I love the how Dany has evolved from a simpering girl to a Queen. And, I especially love how she is outsmarting all the men on her march to the Iron Throne. Her dragons are little now, but one day they will be big, and they already know how to incinerate on command. Love this series. I haven’t seen the HBO finale yet, so no spoilers!
My husband thinks that Kate Beckensale’s rubber suit should have been my number one pick. While I have to agree, Kate makes curvy-corseted-chick look extra good, it is her twin strength and vulnerably that I really love. When she falls for Michael Corvin… bliss. I wasn’t crazy about the last installment, but the first couple hit all my paranormal markers.
Confession. I have never seen an episode of True Blood. But, I sure like the way gorgeous Joe fills out a wet tee shirt, and I love werewolves, so I’m going with him sight unseen. I just know. He would be on my list. The fact I’ve never actually watched him act, unimportant.
Rapunzel - Tangled (Yep, the Disney flick)
I was blown away when I sat down to watch this movie with my kids. This movie is perfectly plotted, from the inciting incident to the Happily Ever After. I love the “deny of the call,” which has Rapunzel manically vacillating between guilt about leaving her (evil) mother and her desire to see the world with Flynn. We get to see Flynn being patient and kind with her. We get to see Rapunzel’s angst. The whole interaction is only 5 minutes long, but it is brilliant. The evil mother is a fantastic villainess too. Just a wonderful story, start to finish. If you are a writer, bring your pad to take notes!
LadyHawke - Isabeau
I was watching this movie when everyone else was watching Princess Bride. This was one of Michelle Pfeiffer’s first movies. It is about a magical curse and a reformed thief who comes to the aid of tragic lovers. Isabeau is cursed to become a hawk every day at sunrise and Navarre turns into a wolf at sunset. I’m not sure how it was received by the critics of the day, but I wore out our VCR tape watching it. It has rotten music, but wonderful elements: an ill-fated romance, a magical curse, and reformed thief.
Thanks so much, Katie, for letting me wander down my paranormal memory lane!
All my best,

Thanks Susannah! I'm a huge fan of Michael and Selene as well. So I was really bummed that he wasn't in the most recent movie and like you, it just wasn't the greatest for me. But I could watch the first two over and over. :)
SUSANNAH SCOTT lives in the Missouri Ozarks and is the lone female in a very loud household of males ranging in age from 4 to 40. While she jokes that the extreme levels of testosterone inspired her to write romance, it is really the love of creating an excellent story, and the occasional dreams of twenty-foot dragons, that wake her and send her to the laptop before the chaos of daily life ensues. Susannah loves to hear from her readers. Please visit her website at www.susannahscottbooks.com or follow her as Susannah Scott on Facebook and @Susannah_Scott on Twitter.
Luciana de Luca has a PhD in sass and gemology—and a problem. Her twin brother’s gambling debts have gotten out of hand, and a mob enforcer is blackmailing her to rob the latest, greatest mega-casino on the Strip. Although Lucy has worked her whole life to get away from her family’s grifter past, to save her brother, she dons three-inch heels and a sluts-r-us dress and struts into Alec’s Gerald’s casino, determined to put her long-forgotten thieving ways to the test again.
Alec Gerald, a shape-shifting dragon, has built the Crown Jewel casino to provide sanctuary for his people amongst the flash and awe of Las Vegas. Unfortunately, the sexy little thief trying to steal his largest diamond exhibit turns out to be his mate, and he must woo her before he loses his dragon form forever. But before he can handcuff her to his bed and explain the details of a mating ceremony, an enemy attacks and threatens to destroy his casino, his people, and his newfound mate.
