This blog hop post is all about asking, “What makes a hero in movies and books wonderful to the point your toes curl?”
That’s a bit of a leading question for me. It doesn’t take much to make my toes curl and give me a warm feeling in the pit of my stomach. And believe me, I see a lot of pictures of gorgeous, sexy half and fully naked men in various states of undress and arousal. In fact ‘man poker’ has become a bit of thing on my Facebook page when the urge strikes. You know, I raise you one man picture, then someone comes along and bets me a picture of two men together, then another posts three men doing God knows what and …well, you get the idea.
I digress. Whether it be a book or a movie, I like my men dark, confident, and intelligent. Gerard Butler material, or the gorgeous Craig Olejnik from the TV series, ‘The Watcher.’ I like them tough, with great eyebrows, mesmerising eyes and a tight backside. I like cheek and wit, compassion and tenderness and a little bit of pure attitude.
I like men who respect themselves, who are professional and committed to their profession and yet able to laugh at themselves. I like a man to be emotional and show his feelings just a little bit. That wet gleam in the eye as tears threaten, the swallowing of the throat, the flicker of the eyes – it makes me shiver all over. I’ve read books where my own throat swells and tears appear as a hero shows his vulnerability, his hurt and you feel it deep inside, feel his pain because a scene has been so well written and you get so immersed in it.
So this is what makes my toes curl. What floats your boat?
To celebrate this blog hop, I’m giving away one e-book copies of each of my M/M books, ‘Stripped Bare’, ‘Saving Alexander’, and ‘Worth Keeping’. Three lucky winners, drawn at random, will win one of these books.
