Are Dragons the New Vampires?

Okay, I don't really think dragon romances are going to become as popular as vampire romances.  But, there are several excellent new series featuring dragons available from the library and I wanted to bring them to your attention.  I actually think the fantasy/urban fantasy romance blend has overtaken the vampires in popularity, and I consider the dragon books part of that trend.

Dragons and Dragon-Slayers

Dragons, although only occasionally encountered in East Texas (alligators don’t count), are reasonably common in fantasy fiction. Now, in Texas, you might run into one dancing around your neighborhood, especially around the lunar New Year. And in October and May you may find several paddling furiously neck and neck down the bayou (May 1, 2010 is predicted to be an excellent day for dragon spotting around Allen’s Landing in downtown Houston).
