Women have problems writing anything that doesn't have romance. Look at paranormal fiction. Women keep trying to make it and paranormal ROMANCE one and the same. Only a few women authors (Patricia Briggs, Elizabeth Blake, and a SCANT few others) are able to keep werewolf literature away from these tired-ass tropes
1: Human or werewolf female needs saving. Lone wolf (somehow considered an "Alpha, despite not being in a pack) reluctantly helps her out of a bind...then can't stay away from her
2: Male werewolf is INSTANTLY drawn to her, knowing she's his mate-for-life, at first glance...if only he could make her see it (and he pursues her throughout the book in a rapey-stalker fashion* until she realizes she loves him)
3: Werewolves can only change into regular, boring 4-legged wolves, no huge biped death-machines that we all love.
4: (I REALLY hate this) Werewolves are portrayed as having multiple personality disorder, their wolf form having separate opinions and expressing them to the werewolf while he's in human form, and being referred to as "My wolf".
Example: She threw her arms around my neck for balance. I was warmed by it, but my wolf snarled at the sudden unbidden contact.
*seriously, you'd get prison time for some of the shit female readers consider "romantic" that these fiction werewolves do to pretty much force themselves on their female victi- err, mate-for-life.
