“What makes a hero in movies and books wonderful to the point your toes curl?” 

Passion. Conviction. Strength of mind, body, and soul. It does it to me every time.

My absolute favorite hero, the one that makes my toes curl, happens to be in my go-to book. His name is Pace Colton, and he’s the hero in a historical romance novel called Apache Flame, by Janis Reams Hudson.  It’s been out of print for some time, but I treasure this one most, the final book in her Apache series.

The hero in this book is strong, he’s a warrior in the truest sense of the word. He’s passionate about his convictions, about his family, his extended family, and about the woman loves.  To the point, he’s more than willing, and does, die for her.  Thankfully, she manages to save his life, but EVERY. SINGLE. TIME  I read this book, it’s the like the first time for me.

A hero who loves with all his heart, who puts his own life on the line for hers, and their unborn child.  A man who, once saved needs a good swift kick in the ass to get his life in order again because the woman who loves him as passionately as he does her is not about to give up on him.  HE makes my toes curl, especially when he realizes that without her, he’s not whole.

    I love a caring, protective hero, one who can go all alpha male, yet doesn’t feel threatened and even encourages their loved one taking the lead and taking charge. A sense of humor is also important. It doesn’t matter if it’s just goofiness, dry humor, wit, etc, just some type of sense of humor. He has to be able to deal with feelings, not all, oh I’m a guy, we don’t do those things, over-macho crap. I want a guy who’s secure in his massculinity (you know, not afraid to wear pink or scared people will think he’s “gay” or “a girl” for actually doing/enjoying things like going to the theatre or dressing fashionably). Loyalty and fidelity are extremely important as well as being able to cook. A guy who can cook is super sexy. And romantic at heart as well.


  10. My favorite is an alpha hero. One thats strong, caring, protective. I love a sense of humor! And a six pack and guns doesnt hurt anything. lol Thank you!

  32. 😀 curling toes is always a good thing. I’ve always found a hero that has a soft spot for animals to be incredibly sexy. And Brooke’s right, loyalty is pretty hot too!
