Because I have nothing better to do, I'm compiling a list of romances with unusual shape-shifting heroes and/or heroines. "Unusual" is defined as something that is never featured in more than five stories before (therefore eagles, hawks, and dragons don't really count unless the author's treatment of such things is really unusual), with bonus points given to characters that shapeshift into not-so-stereotypical creatures associated with the virility, danger, masculinity/femininity, etc. For example, a hero who can shift into a pomeranian or a tapir.
Here are those that I've read:
The Orca King by Darragha Foster (hero, Orca whale).
The Biggest Kahuna by Ciar Cullen (hero, great white shark).
Wildest Dreams from the anthology A Kiss At Midnight by Emily Veinglory (hero, deer).
Here are those brought up in a previous discussion in this blog:
Polar Heat by Mary Winter (hero, polar bear).
The Collector 4: Eight Arms To Hold You by Ally Blue (hero, octopus).
How about unusual heroes with abilities or physical features that are rather unusual, like, say, a third eye or something? I'm talking about really unusual, so the usual generic psychic powers don't count. I'm interested to know if there are such books out there. I can't think of any outside of some Japanese naughty cartoons that I'd rather forget about. I'm sure many Changeling Press titles will fall under this category, so any suggestions will be most welcome.
Anyone has more to add to the list? I'm going to look for that one with the octopus hero just to see how the author pulls that one off.
