Do you like them tough as nails with manly jobs or polished and professional like a Ken doll? Seems like most of the romances I read the heroes are muscular, battle scarred types with jobs like detectives, mercenaries, fire fighters or in some kind of service like a navy seal. I can't recall a time when the hero was a sophisticated doctor or accountant. What's up with that? Could it be the men in our fantasies are the kind who thrill while frighten us, and only have professions where they get down and dirty?
The heroes in my fantasies and the books I write are the tough alpha hero with the muscles and the moves to back it up. Not that a doctor can't be muscular and tough, but let's face it, the prospect of him cutting off his finger while doing surgery just isn't exciting. I want a hero who fights for what he wants and always comes out on top, while at the same time revealing a tenderness for the woman he wants.
He doesn't necessarily have to be handsome, either. Give me a hero whose sex appeal stems from the whole package, not just his face!
