A fellow writer asked, 'what's the most important quality in a hero of a romance novel'.
I only had to think for a moment.
This was my answer.
Strength of character---heroic. He does the right thing (it doesn't hurt if he's easy on the eyes, of course). I see my heroines the same way--struggling with adversity, but with the strength and courage to persevere.
I want a power couple in the end, who complete each other, so that my reader experiences the delicious madness of falling in love, but also feels empowered when they're finished reading, to carry on and face whatever life throws at them.
Who's your perfect hero?
He's out there somewhere.
