SWEET Giveaway Day Eleven!
Thanks to everyone who came by yesterday and shared the reason they fell in love with one of their favorite heroes. I loved reading the comments of why you loved that man: tough but tender, protective, caring but flawed, reformed bad boy, loyal, kind, honorable, devoted. All of those are wonderful characteristics and exactly what I love in a hero, too.
Special thanks to Crystal for choosing Ethan from RUN TO ME and her description of him as strong, kind, a bear and just sexy as can be! And Kris for choosing Seth from SWEET JUSTICE and her description of how honorable he is for sticking to what he believed in to his own detriment. Isn't it interesting that his heroine is named Honor. (:
Congrats to Lisa Filipe for winning a signed copy of Beg for Mercy by Jami Alden! Lisa, please email your mailing address to email@example.com and I'll get the book out to you next week.
Now, today let's talk about heroines. When I'm writing, I always fall in love with my hero and want to make sure I find a heroine who not only deserves him but is a perfect match for him. One who's strong enough to stand up to an alpha male but also has qualities that make that alpha male become all tender and protective when he thinks of her.
I won't ask you to name your favorite female character, unless you want to, however, name some character traits you like to see in a heroine. If she's going to be good enough for a hero you love, she's got to have qualities that you admire. What are they?
Today's SWEET prize is Blood Trinity, Book 1 in the Belador series by Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love! Looks like a fabulous book!
Okay, I'm spending the day again with Jared and Mia. Since this is the last book in the LCR series, I think I'm having trouble letting them go, plus they are just so much fun! However, I'm sending them back to New York on Monday so gotta get them ready for the journey.
Have a great Saturday all! And if you're a college football fan, hope your team wins today, unless your team happens to be playing the Alabama Crimson Tide! (:
Now, let's talk heroines.
