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.
What is your favorite?

Book Synopsis:

The biggest fight of his life isn’t in a cage...

Mac “The Snake” Hannon has spent years throwing himself into cage fighting as a way to lash back at the natural disaster that destroyed his future. A call for help has Mac returning to the one place he swore never to return: Kansas—in the height of tornado season.


There he meets free-spirited Gayle Matthews. At first he wants nothing to do with the infuriatingly persistent woman, but the crazy challenges she tosses his way are impossible to resist. As she thaws years of bitterness, bringing back the Mac he believed long gone, he starts to make peace with the past and see the future again. Until he learns she chases his worst nightmare—then he can’t get away fast enough.


Meteorologist and storm chaser, Gayle Matthews is no stranger to being left behind and now believes in living in the moment. She wants to do just that with the handsome extreme fighter with the achingly sad eyes. As she works to replace the sorrow with desire, she finds herself breaking her one rule: have fun but don’t fall in love. When he suddenly pushes her away and she discovers the horrifying reason why, she issues one more challenge: face his fear and come on a chase with her.


Will squaring off with the past lead to a victory for heartache or love?

Author Bio:
Ever since Abby Niles picked up her first Sweet Valley High book in sixth grade and fell in love with Elizabeth and Todd, she’s been hooked on romance. By the time she reached high school, she was devouring meatier romances with pirates, cowboys and knights. She never imagined that those years of reading would one day lead to becoming a published author.
In her late twenties, after having twins and becoming a stay-at-home mom, she started doodling stories to keep her sanity. Next thing she knew, she was actually submitting to publishing houses. And was immediately rejected. That didn’t stop her though. She found some kickass critique partners, honed her craft, and continued submitting.
And eventually sold.
Today, she is a full-time writer and lives with her two kids in North Carolina. 
Abby is the author of the contemporary MMA romance series Love to the Extreme. The first two books, Extreme Love and Fighting Love, released in 2013. The third book, Winning Love, will release on August 26th, 2014. She is also the author of the dark paranormal romance series The Awakening: Aidan, The Awakening: Liam, and The Awakening: Britton. Both series are with Entangled Publishing. Defying Convention, with Carina Press, is a geeky romantic comedy held at a Sci-fi convention, where Live Action Role Players (LARPers) set out to teach their favorite author a lesson.
She is represented by Maureen Walters at Curtis Brown, LTD.
