From Tawny: I absolutely love writing for romances Harlequin Blaze. I’m a lifelong romance reader, and have been reading Blaze from its beginning. Like many romances, it covers all of my favorite reading requirements: sexy stories, a variety of plots, strong heroines and hunky heroes. These are just such fun books to write, mostly because they are such fun books to read. It’s great to read the journey of two people coming together, overcoming conflicts and falling in love with each other. And, of course, I’m a sucker for happy endings.
Did I mention the hunky heroes? Yeah, that’d definitely be one of the main reasons I love to read romances. Of course there’s also the setting and the type of romance – contemporary or historical, paranormal or suspense.
Whether the hero is a powerful CEO in a suit, a hunky cowboy in a Stetson or a soldier in uniform, they all appeal in different ways. I have to admit, I’m probably the biggest fan of gamma heroes, but I wouldn’t say no to an alpha hero. Of course, I’ve read quite a few betas I’d be happy to read again, too. If the hero has those qualities that make him sexy in my mind, he’s a winner. To me, sexy is a strong man with a lot of talent... (hmmm, where did everyone’s mind just go?) A hero who’s good at what he does, who makes the heroine hot and shows her that she’s the most amazing woman in the world.
So my question to you – what is your favorite kind of hero? Has your taste in heroes changed lately? Do you always fall for the bad boy? Or is it the soldier boy that does it for you? From what I hear, the Bellas have the best taste in heroes...
