One of the pleasures of writing romance is the fun of creating the perfect hero.
As you all know by now, I love cowboys. In real life as well as fiction. I also have a weakness for firemen and military men.
Vamps? I don't get it.
But we're all different, and that's what makes writing so much fun.
I've started a new ms--yeah, yeah. I know. But I will finish this one.
Anyway, I was thinking about the hero (Garret) and what would make him sexy.
Short, dark hair. Check.
Blue eyes. Check.
Okay, maybe brown. Check.
Broad shoulders that can carry his burdens, along with his lady's. Check.
Long legs and a nice ass that Wranglers fit all so well. Check and check.
Strong hands that can handle an unruly calf or a woman's soft skin with equal skill. Check!
Ok. Physically, he's awesome.
But it's got to be more than that.
He has to have character.
Be sexually confident.
Kind, but a little arrogant, too.
Know how to give and take love....!
A lot to ask of a man. But a hero must possess these traits for me to find him attractive.
What do your heros have to have to make them special?
