Attractive to opposite sex.

11. Similarities of Mr. Darcy &
Edward Cullen

Rescues the female lead from a dire circumstance
Pride & Prejudice vs. Twilight Male Leads
12. Love story of an unlikely pair:
A 110-year-old hero who never sleeps, plays piano beautifully, and prefers cougar blood
A 17-year-old heroine who literally embodies the heros favorite brand of heroin
The power of scent and sense of smell emphasize our animal origins
Vampire refined beast link between human and animal realms
Most interesting characters are nonhuman
The story is sad and beautiful at the same time
Bellas internal struggles are well understood, having similar right and wrong issues personally
I would enjoy the opportunity live in a small town where everyone knows everyone and they all feel like family
