Hot Summer Heroes Blog Hop

The Blog Hop begins Monday, August 13th and ends Sunday, August 19th!

Thanks for stopping by my site! I’m giving away a free digital copy of The Long Road Home, which is a contemporary romance or Shrouded in Darkness, a dark paranormal/sci-fi romance.

I would love to have you sign up for my newsletter for contests and latest book releases while you’re here.

My idea of a hot hero is the type of men I write. Very normal, everyday men, BUT once thrust into strange and dangerous situations, they overcome extreme odds to champion the people they love. Yes they may be hot to look at but they are just as hot inside where it counts 🙂 .

To get a free digital copy, don’t forget to add a comment with your email below the blog hop list. The grand prize is a gift card to Barnes & Noble, and I’m sure there a so many other prizes on the hop!

Also, I’d love to hear what makes a hero hot to you!

    My hot summer hero would be the type of man who who is tough on the outside, but gentle when it counts. I like a man who is hard working with strong family values. He’d be strong both physically and emotionally, and daring because who doesn’t like the ‘bad boy’ we all itch to be the one to tame. He’d be completely devoted, caring and respectful. Handsome of course, and would rock my world.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway. I’m new to your work, and would love an opportunity to win one. I’ve subscribed to your newsletter too!

    Darn this hop, its going to occupy my mind with all of my favorite heroes today!

    My favorite heroes are generally alpha men. Rough and tough, with a giant soft spot for his leading lady. If I end up wishing I was her, then he is a winner in my book!

    What makes a hero hot to me is his utter devotion to his heroine 🙂

  11. Donna/BLHmistress August 13, 2012 at 9:59 pm - Reply

    What makes a hero hot to me is , when they are broody, and stubborn but deep down they have a heart of gold also their fierce protectiveness of those they care about.

    Woohoo! Loving this hop!
    A hero is HOT when he’s an alpha; tall, handsome, sexy, with a sense of humor, loyal, and a BAD ASS! He doesn’t want anyone to know that he is soft on the inside, especially for his woman.

    Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.

    I find heros must have a little bit of softness with a heck of a lot of roughness.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

    A hot sexy hunky guy, to me is all alpha, protective, and not afraid to appreciate what he’s got. A sense of humor is just icing on the cake!

    I like your idea of a man. Someone who fights for the ones that he loves.

    In my mind a great book Hero is an Alpha male with a soft spot for the woman in his life.

    I love the intelligent men who tend to be alphas, but who are respectful, caring, and don’t allow others to be mistreated or abused in any way.

    What makes a hot hero for me, a bit of a bad boy, confident, honest, caring, possessive, who will fight for want he believes in. He’s also tortured and flawed.

    My hero has to have confidence in order for me to consider him hot. I’m just not attracted to anyone that doesn’t have it.

    Sexy, strong, loyal and fearless! Ian from Killer Secrets by Lora Leigh emobodies this. He fought for what he wanted and would not give up! Ian is one of the best hero’s that I’ve ever read. He had flaws but used them for good. His courage was inspiring.
