5 Sexiest Things romance heroes can say or do.
We all have what we classify as sexy. I’m no different. Things that make me go “whew!” in a book are things that also make me go “whew!” in real life. A heated glance, instinctive behavior and manly activities all set the heart racing. Here are some of my favorites.
1) A Protective Instinct. This can range from stepping in front of the heroine to put himself between her and danger to simply taking her hand without thought while crossing the road. Any time that protective streak comes out in the hero I love it! I’ve been known to go back and re-read these scenes over and over again.
2) Domination. When a hero suddenly scoops up the heroine, or presses her against the wall, or snatches her around the neck and kisses her or…or…or…yeah, you get my drift. More please.
3) Cooking. I love a well-written cooking scene. The image it brings to mind is hot-as-hell too. Think about it…a sinfully sexy man standing behind a stove, cooking YOU dinner. Hot. Hot. Hot.
4) Fixing Something. Especially if his shirt is OFF and he’s hammering something. Muscles flexing. Sweat glistening. That look of concentration on his face. Whew, doggie! One reason I love scenes like this is because the hero is usually completely unaware of the sexiness he is exuding at the time. I mean he’s in man mode. He’s fixing stuff. We are completely in the heroine’s point-of-view and the eye-candy that is described is so yummy.
5) “You’re mine.” I love reading it. I love hearing it. The possessive phrase sends goosebumps everywhere.
