C and F are top of my list!  Shut up and take my money!

B, depending on the shifter.  Never got into bear shifters for some reason.  Or dragons.
Next, let's see ... D, as long as they're not some generic blue alien warlord.  Bored of that trope.

Finally A and E.  I'm pretty meh about both.

Write-in candidates: human and elf, followed by human and demon.  Those can be fun!

I'm partial to human and angel, particularly fallen ones, myself.

C, B and D.    (My favorite is vampire and shifter, but I'm biased.)

ETA:  What about witch and human?  Or fairy and human? :)

I don't quite know what a fallen angel is. (not an option, but I don't really know what that's supposed to refer to)

I'm B. I love shifters, especially when there's lore around the shifters and the kin (not just random humans).

Yeah, I always love it when the author works out a mythology and culture for their nonhumans.  Not just shifters, all of them on the list can benefit from this.  Worldbuilding, yo.

How about a genetically stronger human vampire hunter who falls for an angel? :) (Yeah, I love me those Nalini Singh books)

Oh man, I love those taken by the alien warlord (a scifi alien abduction novel) books. The titles are spectacularly long!

Same. I have the most complicated shifter lore, but I'm too busy writing contemp romance with regular people to break off and do the paranormal stories I have. Maybe 2019 will be the year of paranormal stories.

I have to say C...

I always go back to vampire/human paranormal romance novels. Thankfully I found the self-publishing world or else I wouldn't have nearly as many of those books on my radar! C is also true when it comes to what I like to write.

 I still remember when I was a little kid. I couldn't wait til Halloween when the reruns of The Little Vampire would play. I would lie awake at night hoping by morning I'd be turned into a vampire.  ;D

And following that I'd have to say fairy and human as was said by Lorri. I never get tired of fairies especially when romance is involved!

Yes, they were bad. Depending on your mythology, they can be the fallen angels from when Lucifer led the revolt in heaven and God cast them all out. It could also be those angels who fell in love with humans. They are said to have fallen. The resulting children between an angel and a human are called nephilim.

f. human and machine (AI)

I'm choosing this because I haven't been able to find any. Most of what I've seen is human and cyborg (so the hero is actually human, just with a steel skeleton or super-strength or other add-ons), but human and AI seems more rare.

Does anyone have any recommendations? Or should I be looking outside romance and more towards hard sci-fi?

Anything humanoid is fine, except for angels and/or demons. My religious beliefs conflict enough that I can't get into those stories.

I'm with Ellie.

Vampires are always fine with me, and like the others I enjoy a good origins story.

I like shifters but it depends on what they are. I never really got the bears either, or lions. I could maybe dig dragons as long as they spent most of their time in human form. I literally can't picture a romantic scene (not bedroom, obviously, but even just being loving) with a human and dragon. But wolves I totally get. I'll always happily devour wolf stuff.

Mermen? Um, ick for some reason. And I never did get into alien romance at all, maybe because I struggle to find it believable.

I'm intrigued by the AI, I've never seen that done, I'd probably view the look inside out of curiosity.

I don't know of any books offhand, but there are several movie instances:

Data had relations with Tasha Yar in ST:TNG. Didn't end well.
The main guy in Bladerunner 2049 had a relationship with his AI. Didn't end well.
In Her, the guy has feelings for his 'Alexa' like AI. Doesn't end well for him.
The Terminator in the first movie learned to care for humans and sacrificed himself for them and made me cry. I guess I fell in love with him and that didn't end well.
Now in Host, that involved aliens, but you could think of it like an AI where the 'innards' finally got a body. Now there is a potential HEA.
Halo might be a game but it has some books to go with. I always thought of the Master Chief as having a thing for his AI. Nobody has really explored that since... game!

The trend I see is that scifi explores the down side to AI relationships since humans are the superior choice, naturally! Since people are afraid of AI and the Rise of the Machines, our books reflect those fears. It's also easier to explore the tragedy of falling in love with something in a different physical form that you can't properly touch than come up with a HEA.

I loved the Host.
GREAT book!!! Totally worth reading.


I don't think the combo matters as much as the world building and storyline.  A complex world and great storyline and your combo can be almost anything.

Well, I read and enjoyed The Fallen series by Cynthia Eden.

There's also the Broken Angel series by L.G. Castillo. I bought the first book but haven't read it yet, but the blurbs sound great.
