Winter Wonder Man Blog Hop Jan 16-19th

Happy New Year and welcome to the Winter Wonder Man Blog hop!

What makes a hero in movies and books wonderful to the point your toes curl?

For me, I like a hero who is strong, big-hearted, confident, funny and a hopeless romantic. He’ll do anything for the one he loves. He’s not perfect. Nobody is. He wants to make the world a better place. He’s down to earth and not looking for fame or fortune. He merely wants to find the woman his heart and body yearns for. After he finds her, he wants to spend every minute with her. He can’t stop thinking about her. He longs to kiss her, touch her, love her forever. Yeaaaahhh, I like that kind of hero.

What about you?

For this blog hop, leave me your answer in a comment and put your email addy. On Jan. 20th, I’ll use to select a winner.

The winner will receive Love Bites by Linsay Sands and Cheat the Grave by Vicki Pettersson. Both are autographed paperback books.

    I am a sucker for the tortured souls in my heroes >.< There is something very attractive about a man who continues to survive no matter what life has thrown at him.

    I like a flawed, strong minded, take charge kind of guy. Maybe he even starts as a villain, or psuedo-villain and redeems himself. sherryfundin69 at netscape dot net

  3. terashanley says:

    Oh you nailed it with ‘confidence’! and if a hero has protective instincts, in that ‘i’d do anything to keep you safe’ kind of way, it gets me every time! I loved your description of the perfect hero!! great post, Mary 🙂


  4. Lori Ha says:

    I think heroes who have tortured souls make the best stories. I like them to be confident (the typical alpha male),loyal to a fault and funny 🙂

    I am attracted to the ones that are scarred, both physically and mentally. I have no idea why. I also like the thoughtful, strong and common sense smart.

  6. gemmabrocato says:

    I love a confident man. But if he is overly confident, the bet’s off. I also love a man with a sense of humor. Great post, Mary.

  7. Donna Newman says:

    I love the tortured heros, that are still fiercely protective of those he cares about but has that sarcastic attitude.

    My favorite qualities in a guy: protectiveness, loyalty, humor

  9. Mary Abshire says:

    Thanks for the comments. I agree, a hero with a tortured soul is attractive too. That tortured soul needs someone to keep him straight. Right? That tortured soul has to be a romantic. Oh yes, imagine the possibilities… 🙂
    Good luck to each of you!!

  10. Steph F. says:

    I love the flawed hero who rides the line of good and bad. Smart, sexy and alpha but who has that sweet side and sweeps me off my feet.


  11. Janie McGaugh says:

    To be wonderful to me, a hero has to be kind (even if he hides it), honorable, confident, smart, and have a sense of humor.

    indiana jones is my fav hero

  13. H.B. says:

    I have to say torture souls do have their own appeal. Won Bin(korean actor) role in The Man from Nowhere certainly had my toes curling.

  14. Nana Prah says:

    I can’t receive your book because I’m international, but I enjoyed your post. One thing I’ve noticed when people describe a toe curling man is that the is always monogamous. Interesting how a womanizer has yet to make the list.

  15. JanD says:

    Aragorn from the Lord of the Rings movies is my type of hero.

    My perfect hero is tall, muscular, confident, loyal, Alpha, bad-ass, intelligent, protective, vulnerable and majorly damaged — but ultimately redeemable!

    I love the alpha shifter
    Thank you

  20. shadowluvs2read says:

    I love alpha shifters! Cant get enough of them! Thank you!

  21. chickie434 says:

    I love a caring, protective hero, one who can go all alpha male, yet doesn’t feel threatened and even encourages their loved one taking the lead and taking charge. A sense of humor is also important. It doesn’t matter if it’s just goofiness, dry humor, wit, etc, just some type of sense of humor. He has to be able to deal with feelings, not all, oh I’m a guy, we don’t do those things, over-macho crap. I want a guy who’s secure in his massculinity (you know, not afraid to wear pink or scared people will think he’s “gay” or “a girl” for actually doing/enjoying things like going to the theatre or dressing fashionably). Loyalty and fidelity are extremely important as well as being able to cook. A guy who can cook is super sexy. And romantic at heart as well.

    I like them deep, dark and on the bad side . Juliee Fitze –

  23. Jeanette (Jeannie) Platt says:

    Heroes I love tend to be very alpha maleish… I am married to my high school sweetheart who happens to be a former marine and I love it when he gets all alpha maleish 🙂 So the heros I like tend to have characteristics of him, Cocky, Protective, Strong, Sexy, Funny,and make their heroines so frustrated they roll their eyes or want to kill him… Yep that is what I love . Thanks for being part of the hop.

  24. Cathy says:

    Tall, dark, and handsome silent type…and who’s wounded. Gets me every time.

  25. Cindi says:

    It’s all about how the hero acts. Strong, silent, respectful, faithful, devoted and a problem-solver. Plus being handsome is ok too;)

    My hero is strong and protecting. I love a man who knows me so well that its almost like he could be psychic at times. ghwasd at gmail dot com
