Hero-A man to fall in love with

kayevalentinescowboy500X750_72I’m an avid reader of romances, as well as a multi-published romance author. I write about heroes…and, of course, heroines.

What makes a good hero in a romance? There are many articles on the subject, many posts from talented authors. Here are some of the traits most loved in a hero:

  • Attractive
  • Talented or skilled in some way
  • Wealthy
  • More than brawn
  • His admiration, respect and love for the heroine grows
  • Maybe frustrated with the heroine, but devoted to her
  • Has flaws, but not tragic flaws
  • Loveable on many levels and unforgettable
  • Redeemable qualities
  • Unmistakably masculine
  • Driven
  • Protective

    Also, another choice would be solar flood lights or spotlights to enhance a
    particular area to illuminate continuously. The heat gets
    build up due to lack of cooling device. Another neat light
    affect you can achieve with net light sets is a “curtain” or background of sorts.
    All I wanted to do on that Friday night after a long week, was
    a lazy night on the couch with a cup of hot
    tea and a good movie or book. When you get them home,
    some minor assembly will be required.
