I’m sitting at my desk, writing away and loving my current hero, Jones. He’s tall, dark and handsome. Strong and silent. Does the right thing, even when it’s the hard thing. He’s not particularly roguish, however. He’s deep, is my Jones, and laughter doesn’t come easily to him.
While I’m writing, I look over and see one of my favorite desk accessories. Jamie Fraser. He keeps me company to remind me what I love in a romance hero.
Now, Jamie is not like my Jones beyond the fact that he does the right thing (and is there anything hotter than that)? Well, Jamie is tall, too. And handsome. So I guess they have more in common than I thought!
Still, they got me thinking. I love all sorts of heroes, from the roguish to the serious. I’ve written some of each. Both Julian in THE SMUGGLER WORE SILK and Angel in IN BED WITH A SPY have a bit of the rogue in them. Maximilian, the hero in my next book (as yet untitled, releasing in 2017), is serious, as is Jones.
So my questions is, what is your favorite type of hero? It’s an age-old question, but I always want to know. I’ll be giving away an ebook copy of IN BED WITH THE SPY to one commenter!

P.S. The rock behind Jamie really is from Culloden Field, given to me by my MIL, who received it from a friend who visited. Is that not the COOLEST? The butterfly was a birthday gift from one of my besties, and reminds me that everyone is their own brand of beautiful. The Happy Buddha was a purchase on a weekend away with Mr. A, to remind me that happiness comes from within, not without. The computer screen reminds me that I need to get writing!
