Fur and Fang Romance n. an incredibly successful brand of fiction, also called Urban Fantasy (US), Dark Fantasy (UK) and other terms, none of which satisfy. Features a female protagonist who may or may not be supernatural but is thrown into adventure and danger while being torn (though never literally) between two gorgeous men, one of whom is a vampire and the other a werewolf.
Modelled on the highly-successful, non-fantasy Stephanie Plum novels of Janet Evanonich.
Uses: Charlaine Harris is the undisputed queen of the Fur and Fang Romance. Isn’t that Bill Compton hot? I wonder if she can put me in touch with him.
