It’s another blog hop, peeps! Yay!
So what makes a hero hot to me? Well, I think we all know the answer to this one, don’t we? I mean, if you’ve spent any time at all on my site (particularly the blog) you know the answer. We’ll say it all together, shall we? One, two three – TORTURED, DAMAGED HEROES.
Yeah. Absolutely no surprises there
One of my very favourite books, LORD OF SCOUNDRELS, features a Tortured! Damaged! hero in the Marquess of Dain. However, to counteract the Tortured! Damaged!-nessness of it all, his heroine is a no-nonsense, sensible, femme fatale by the name of Jessica. *sigh* I do love that book.
Of course, I wrote my own Tortured! Damaged! hero in TEACH ME. The Earl of Malvern is cold and standoffish, but my heroine is too full of joy and humour to allow this for long. Elizabeth brings him out of his shell, and I loved writing their story.
In my upcoming release, western historical romance ROUGH DIAMOND, the hero is neither Tortured! nor Damaged! Something is obviously wrong with me. Rupert is instead a bit mischievous, and Alice, his heroine, is just a bit frustrated by it. Heh.
Oh hot heroes, tortured-and-damaged-almost-beyond-repair-but-for-your-heroine-and-getting-a-swift-kick-up-the-behind, I do love you so!
And now, the contest#!
Comment below on what makes a hero hot. Is it his snazzy sense of style? Is it the way he prowls about and growls and stuff? Or is it the way he treats his love? Let me know!
