Is there such a thing as a happy vampire?February 28, 2008

There’s a great post over at Smart Bitches that (in addition to being snarkily hilarious) asks the question, is it possible to have a happy vampire hero? I don’t know if I agree that the world of paranormal romance is populated exclusively by angsty, self-loathing, emo-type vampires, but it does seem that a good degree of brooding is a requirement for a lot of the vamp heroes I’ve been reading lately.
There are some great insights in the comments thread so I encourage you to read that too — then if you feel moved, I’d love to see your thoughts here on whether or not a happy, well-adjusted vampire hero can provide a satisfying HEA! What do you think? Would you even want to read about a happy vamp? Or is the brooding part of the sexy mystique?
