Day 21 – Favorite romantic/sexual relationship.

Another tough one, but I’m going to say Hawk and Fisher. They can be found in two convenient three-part books. (Or as six separate books, whatever makes you happy.)

If you like them, you might also want to check out his Forest Kingdom books, which have some cross-overs, namely Blue Moon Rising and Beyond the Blue Moon.

Warning: these books are really dark, like his Nightside series, and there are no fluffy bunnies and happy characters in them, so they’re not for everyone.

The city of Haven is dangerous, but so are they.

I picked these two because they’re both equally kick-butt. There’s no unhealthy dependency, no one person having to save the other a bunch of times, no golden child–just two cops, trying to protect justice in a crime-ridden city full of dark magic and demons.

Despite everything, they have a solid–and long-lasting–relationship. They’ve been through terrible events, and they’ve survived because of each other. There’s a lot of trust and faith here. And stabbing people who’re trying to kill your spouse.

    Oooh, good to know. I absolutely love his Nightside series, even without any real romance. (Can’t count his love for Suzie Shooter, somehow…it’s so non-romantic). I’m definitely adding this to my list! Thanks!

      I thought of Susie and John, too. But they’re so broken as people it can’t help but affect their relationship… it’s amazing they made it work at all, really.
      Haven is pretty similar in tone, so I hope you like it.
