Hunky Hero Giveaway Hop…

Hunky Hero Giveaway Hop

Hunky Hero Giveaway Hop!
Hosted by Riverina Romantics

What makes a hunky hero?
Looks? Charisma? Intelligence?
All of the above?
Or something else that can't be identified other than...
"I know it when I see it" ?

I have to admit, when writing, it definitely helps to give my characters an avatar. Not only does that help visualize them, but also helps in the overall characterization. Once of my favorite avatars is David Gandy. Pretty easy to see why. :) In fact, he's the hunky hero in my story loosely based on Red Riding Hood.
 (Hint: he's not the hunter LOL)

But are looks the definitive answer to what makes a hunky hero? Absolutely not! Hunky heroes can come in all shape(shifters?) and sizes. Share some of your favorite hunky heroes.

Giveaway*: One winner gets an e-copy of Water of Life, e-copy of my short story Cold Hard Magic, & e-copy of Seduced by the Wolf by the awesome Terry Spear (this item will be gifted via ARe and requires an account, subject to availability).

"Who is you hunky hero?"
(Book or film)

My answer?
 I have two heroes 'atypical' heroes
(not intended to be hunky but they sure work for me).

Jean-Luc Picard
Star Trek: TNG
Javier Bardem
 (Perfect as Dain from Lord of Scoundrels)

  4. My current hunky hero is Shane from Suzanne Brockmann's Born to Darkness. he is a former Navy SEAL and well, I love a man in uniform. My all time favorite is Irving 'Izzy' Zanella from Brockmann's Troubleshooter Series. Again, he is a Navy SEAL but what can I say, there is that uniform again. And he is funny as all get out!

  6. Book hunk would be lion shifter Curran from the Kate Daniels series. Actor would be the guy who played the Winchester boys' dad on Supernatural Jeffrey Dean Morgan, I think. He looks really good cleaned up for a new cable show.

  9. I have so many hunky heroes, I don’t even know where to begin. The McKay boys are definitely on the top of the list. I also love The Dartmouth Cobras from Bianca Sommerland. Can’t get enough of those dominant males.

  10. Jason Stathan! My hunky movie hero.


  11. I agree with ya. Hunky heros arent all about the looks. I have a few favorites where the hero thinks there ugly and they dont want a thing to do with anyone. I love them! Especially when they fall for the heroine. The tough man act with a soft spot. *sigh* :) Thank you for the fun hop and the great giveaway! :)

  12. My goodness. Let's see. One of my hunky heroes is Joe Manganiello (Alcide from True Blood)! Another is Demetrius from Elisabeth Naughton's Tempted. And yet another is Jason Mamoa! Do you see a pattern here? Lol. Tall, dark and sexy! I really like all types of men, but those are 3 of my favorite. ;)
    What a wonderful hop! My preferred file format is Kindle (Mobi).
