Dear Authors and Publishers:

When I pick up a romance with the prefixes paranormal, futurist or fantasy I do it because I want the author to go to the bother of building a world for the H/h to fall in love in. In the last few months I've read six books that took place in recycled cardboard boxes. From what I hear there are more out there like that. Poorly dressed Vampire Slayers and were-beast of all sorts crowd under bridges with starship captains and aliens dressed in skin tight futurist foil suits. They are holding up signs that say 'will work for a plot.' Please help out these poor, sometimes equaly cardboard, souls. And speaking of souls, I really hate when being a destined soul-mate is a short cut to HEA and/or shagging!

The only satisfying book I've read lately is White Knight and poor Harry Dresden hasn't gotten any in two years! Is romance and fantasy in equal meassure asking too much?
