Hello everyone! Happy New Year! I’m so glad to be here today as part of my blog tour for my current release, YOURS AT MIDNIGHT. (Be sure to see below for my giveaway.)
One Night with a Fictional Hero
It’s clear at the start of my story that Quinn and Lyric, my hero and heroine in YOURS AT MIDNIGHT, have had a one night stand. Now, four years later they’re face to face again, and things heat up pretty quickly. They can’t forget that night. Especially Lyric.
So, you know how there’s that list? The list of celebrities or athletes or other famous person that your significant other says it’s okay for you to, you know, indulge your fantasy with should you get the chance? Come on, you know the one, right? Well this got me thinking about all the yummy fictional heroes in romance novels and I thought I’d write a list with those guys—the men who have most recently captured my heart and …ahem… my imagination.
Here are four fictional heroes that if they knocked on my door, I could, uh, spend one night with, in no particular order:
1. Quinn Sobel, from “Yours At Midnight.” I was totally crushing on him as I wrote his story. He’s damaged, darkly confident and seductive, and under his sometimes cold, hurtful shell is a man ready to shed the past and show Lyric how much she means to him. Oh, he also speaks multiple languages, and if you ask nicely, he’ll throw in an accent.
2. Harry Dresden, from Jim Butcher’s “The Dresden Files.” Okay, so this isn’t a romance series of books, but I’m seriously in love with Harry. He’s a wizard. He’s protective. Loyal. Asks for trouble. Kicks ass. Will do anything for the people he cares about.
3. Christian Nelson, from Karen Erickson’s “Jane’s Gift.” When a man falls for a woman completely against his type, when he can’t think straight and adores not only her but her kids, there is something very sexy about that. He’s also a fireman. ~sigh~
4. Matt Bowers, from Jill Shalvis’s “At Last.” Matt is sweet one moment, smug the next. He thinks he’s in control, but when it comes to the woman he’s falling for, he’s so not. He’s rugged, charming, a big tease, the kind of man girls lose sleep over. And his nickname is Ranger Hot Buns. Yes, please.
So please share with me, who’s on your list?
