Paranormal romance is an excellent example of the trend towards hybridity in popular fiction. This genre enlivens straightforward romance stories by borrowing from fantasy, appealing to readers of both. In paranormal romance, the interaction of (contemporary) humans and supernatural beings provides a new twist of interest. The being may be the romantic interest, creating a conflict of worlds to be resolved before the romance can come to fruition, or it may simply facilitate the romance between two human characters.
