There’s something comforting about knowing your one true love is a werewolf. Sure, he might shed. Yes, he goes through clothing like it’s made of tissue. But even if he can tear a human limb from limb and barely break a sweat, you know he’s loyal to you and you alone. His love is intense and it makes you feel like you’re the only person in the world.

So what if he brings home the occasional flea?

My best friend and I are gaga over True Blood. It’s the perfect TV cocktail for girlies like us who have grown up watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But it’s even better because it has the added bonus of featuring a very sexy werewolf. Based on the Dead Until Dark book series by Charlaine Harris, it follows the story of Sookie Stackhouse and a variety of characters (both normal and paranormal) as they try and get through the day-to-day in Bon Temps, Louisiana. Of course there’s a little murder and intrigue thrown in to keep the viewer wondering.

And the best part about the show? Why Sam Merlotte, of course. Owner and operator of Merlotte’s, the local watering hole, Sam is an every-day sorta fella with a big secret—he can morph into an animal. Sandy haired Sam has a heart of gold and his border collie animal form makes you want to curl up next to him and take a nap. It also doesn’t hurt that he tends to be nekkid when he turns back into a human!

So you can see why I’m anxiously awaiting season two’s premiere (all the way in July!) ‘Til then, I guess I’ll just have to content myself with the books, which isn’t a bad deal for a bookworm like me.

It’s funny, growing up I was always more into the vampires. But my tastes have changed over time. These days I gravitate more towards these hunky wolfy men. I guess I’ve learned that vampires may love you and leave you, but werewolves will always follow the scent back home.

    I loved your post. thank you for writing it. I agree with you about wolves always finding home.But a little bit of vampire reading does not hurt.

    Hi all and Happy Easter! I have to say now a days, I like to mix-em up! I’ll pretty much read any thing that has a paranormal story line. But a story that has vamps and shifters both in it, what more could a girl ask for!

  5. Colleen

    I enjoy the many different beings in paranormal… but I agree that those Wolf men are yummy! Happy Easter all! :D

  6. Estella

    I enjoy reading about all paranormal beings, but have to admit those weres are hunky!

  7. Ley

    As long as he loves me, I don’t think I care what he is!

    On the topic of Easter, does anyone else love It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown as much as I do. Snoopy!… :lol:

    I have loved vampires since I was a little kid but I am just starting to LOVE werewolves. They are soooo loyal and HOT..lol.

  9. Karin

    I’ve never seen the TV show or read any of those books, but they sound really interesting.

  10. Jackie B

    Great point on the loyalty issue! Although I have to say I’m more a fan of Alcide than Sam. :D I’ve had to reread the series to keep up what the TV show is doing to the characters, and anytime Alcide shows up I give a girly little sigh.

    I always thought of myself as a vampire chick too but werewolves have won me over!!

  12. Jody F.

    True Blood is fab! And what’s not to love about Sam…sure he turns into a dog, but dogs are loyal (which is a great trait in a man). I’m dying waiting for the new season too!
