Today we welcome romantic suspense/suspense-mystery writer Karen Fenech to The Variety Pages. Karen has written a guest post for us on our favorite subject around here – hot heroes. She’s also generously offered to give three lucky commenters their choice of one of her books, so join the conversation to win! Grab a cuppa, settle in and let’s talk men…
A Hero to Die For
You know the kind of man I mean. He walks into a room. The heroine in the novel we’re reading sees him. Her heart starts thumping, her breathing quickens, and her hands aren’t as steady as they’d been before his entrance.
She’s not the only one reacting to him. We, the readers, are right there with her, feeling what she’s feeling, and just as strongly.
He can be the alpha CEO, the rugged cowboy, the daring cop, intrepid spy, or supernatural vampire, werewolf or shape shifter. Whoever he is, now that she’s met him she’s irrevocably drawn to him and regardless of the conflict between them, there’s no going back for her.
But why him? What makes this man the only one for her? What makes him her hero to die for and ours?
We all have our favorite romance heroes. The ones we remember long after we’ve finished a book. Who are your favorite heroes? What makes them your favorites? Why do you think these heroes are to die for, for the heroine and for the reader?
Please do share your favorites. As a token of my gratitude at being here with you, I’ll be drawing three names from the commenters to win her or his choice of one of the Kindle editions of my books, Gone, Betrayal, or Unholy Angels. Please include an email address along with your comment, so I can contact you if you win.
Jamie, thank you for having me here.
