So let me kick off by sharing some favorite things about romance heroes, which I think this is best done by selecting a few of my favorites:
From Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress series is Bones, a be still my heart hero. Yes, the man’s a vampire, but he would die to save the heroine. His actions speak louder than his words. What more could a woman ask for?
From Nalini Singh’s Angel Hunter is Archangel Rafael, a rude, arrogant, and powerful archangel who willing bows before the heroine and to save her life, he chose to die with her instead of losing her. It was the ultimate sacrifice for an immortal. And with his good-bye kiss saved them both by turning her into an angel.
From LJ DeLeon’s Warriors for Light series is Major Steve Taylor, a strong alpha wereleopard who is a loyal, clan leader, solider for the Light, and willing to sacrifice his life for the woman he loves.
Hi, I’m Steve Taylor. As LJ said, I’m a wereleopard. While I’m called an alpha by most, those of us who are feline weres refer to me as a Felix. One day, I’ll take over for my father as “the” Felix for all were-felines. The love of my life, after I stopped fighting it, is Moira. I never thought she would consent to be my mate and when she finally did, I could have killed her, as you’ll see below. Oh, I’m also a prisoner of Senator Carlson who is a dark mage and bent on my death. Should I die, my mate will, too. Don’t you just love Moira’s timing?
Steve, talk to me.
Moira? Steve craned his neck and scanned the sky.
Of course, who’d expect?
After four hours, no one.
Why can I talk to you yet can’t with the guys?
Because I’m a Saraph. Silver doesn’t block my ability or power.
He spotted her on the precipice where he’d been caught. I renounce you as my mate.
Too late, ainmhí, you’ve already claimed me. Once you’ve accepted a soul mate into your heart, not even death can break the bond. I claimed you the moment I brought you into Ahava. I now formally declare to you and before the Goddess, from my soul to your soul, your soul to my soul, you are my mate, my soul, my life.
A force not unlike a medicine ball slammed into his chest. Talons ripped into him, wrenching his soul from him, and thrusting it back in. A new sensation of oneness, of belonging filled him.
“Nooo,” Steve roared, realizing it was too late. An invisible, unbreakable cord joined them. He’d never be the lone leopard again. Only death could separate them now. Maybe not even that.
I’m often asked my I write romance and strong, alpha style heroes. Life without romance is a bore. It softens me allows me to dream.
As for my heroes, they are men who know the importance of romantic foreplay, and understanding it isn’t always about sex but tenderness, touching, caring, and protection. I love it when the hero has trouble telling the woman he loves how he feels—most me do. Yet he shows it through his actions. She’s ill, he takes care of her. She’s in danger and he will try to protect her, even if she’ll be the one to save them—at least in my books. I love it when heroes like, not just love, women. For these reasons and a multitude of others, I read and write romance and love heroes.
Don’t forget to comment and leave your email and feel free to leave your favorite hero as well.
