Holding out for a hero …

So, Nalini Singh is running a pretty cool contest over at her blog to celebrate her February release, Mine to Possess. Basically, she wants folks to talk about their favorite romance heroes.

My favorite hero? The Beast in Beauty by Robin McKinley. Technically, it’s a young adult novel, but who cares about technicalities? At its heart, the book is a beautiful love story. Why do I like the Beast so much? Because he’s kind and gentle and recognizes Beauty’s, well, beauty long before she does. And he’s willing to die so she can go back to her family and be happy. You can’t get much more romantic than that.

Second runner up: James Bond. Yeah, I’m a Bond girl. Go figure. 😉

What about you? Who’s your favorite romance hero?

    There are too many great heroes to pick one! In Loretta Chase’s Lord of Scoundrels, I love the flawed alpha hero, Sebastian. But I also love the beta love interest in Sarah Addison Allen’s Garden Spells. I’m easy.

    I saw P.S. I Love You at the movies, and Gerard Butler could be a hero in my books any day. Yum.

    Chasity — I really think you would enjoy Beauty. Everyone I know who’s read it just raves about it. If not, well, you can pay me back for Twilight. 😈

    Favorite Bond? That’s a toughie! Right now, my fav would have to be Daniel Craig in Casino Royale. After the silliness of the last few Brosnan movies, that one totally blew me away. And Craig is really close to the original character Fleming created.

    But I also like Goldeneye with Brosnan, The Living Daylights with Timothy Dalton, and The Spy Who Loved Me with Roger Moore. So, they all have their moments.

    Edie — I’ve seen several good reviews of Lord of Scoundrels. I’ll have to check it out. If you want more Gerard, check out the movie 300. There’s lots of blood, and it’s pretty gory in places, but there are also lots and lots of man-abs to ogle. 😉
