Update: First of all, thanks to everyone who left a comment! My randomly drawn winner of LORD OF DEVIL ISLE is (drumroll, please!) . . . Rebe! If you didn’t win this time, don’t fret. I’ll be back here on November 7th with another giveaway!
While I’m totally, irrevocably in love with my DH (a computer whisperer who’s a private pilot, has a fabulous bass voice and cooks a mean “Daddy breakfast”–my very own Renaissance Man!) I write historical romance for one reason: the historical hero. Now I could wax rhapsodic about what makes a historical hero so appealing, but I figure a few pictures are worth a thousand words!
Historical men know how to stop and smell the roses. Is there a more civilized and romantic way to spend the afternoon than on a picnic that ends like this?
While a contemporary hero relies on his Blackberry to get him through his day, a Historical Man is likely to pack a really big . . . sword.
Instead of wearing jeans and a T-shirt, a Historical Man is a sartorial peacock with more layers than a wedding cake. There’s something about a buttoned up man that just begs to be undone.
Now it’s your turn to weigh in. What do you think? Do you prefer historical heroes or contemporary and why?
One random commenter will win their choice of a Nook or Kindle version of Mia’s newest release LORD OF DEVIL ISLE, which is coming soon.
“The battle of the sexes is on between a prim miss and the devilishly sexy sea captain who rescues her. The story is fast paced and full of sinfully carnal passion and intriguing characters.
Bad luck seems to follow Eve Upshall. She is falsely accused and sent to Newgate Prison. Then she is on her way to the Colonies to marry a gentleman farmer when her boat is shipwrecked in shark-infested waters.
Captain Nick Scott is intrigued by the English beauty with an acid tongue and a knack for profanity. He offers her his protection, but Eve will not be any man’s mistress. When Nick turns on the charm, she is defenseless against his wanton seduction. Passion sizzles between them until they are consumed by its heat. But war is in the wind and soon the lovers are caught in a treasonous plot against the Crown. And when all hope is lost, love saves the day. ” ~ RTBOOKReviews
