So as an author, I kind of fell in love with the hero, Peter Blackstone, from my first novel Immortal Flame. "Who wouldn't" (based on a great review, thanks, ESR Reviews!) fall in love with him?
For the record, I am happily married to a sweet and funny guy. So anything I share presumes a non-martial status prior to aforementioned dating situation….
Here's why I would date Peter Blackstone:
#1) Such intense eyes
#2) Sacrifice for a woman he loves (twice)
#3) Single-minded focus on his work, which becomes single-minded focus on the woman he loves. Yum.
#4) Hard, corded muscles ("I hate nice, toned muscles," said no red-blooded woman, ever.)
#5) That sensitive spot he has for children
#6) He's protective and powerful but recognizes Allie's own strengths
#7) Amazing, mind-blowing, powerful…conversation. Yeah. Please pass the ice water.
#8) Even when he's hurting (physically or emotionally), he keeps fighting for his woman
#9) Rises above the evil that defines him to become something much more
#10) Ok, I secretly wish I were Allie. (Darn it, I'm just not that awesome and cool.)
Please feel free to add any other reasons of your own. :)
