    27. 27. Paranormal Definition<br />In paranormal, the story is centered on romance as the main theme, and characters must include paranormals. Each book has a new hero and heroine couple, and there must be a happy ending. <br />

The main character is usually a chic who wears leather and kicks butt.There can be a sub-plot love story, but it is ongoing with problems, or the character has many love affairs. <br />
