LAURIE ROMA: My perfect hero is someone who is not so perfect. Sure, he needs to be strong, good looking and fuck like a turbo-jack, but that doesn’t mean he is always right or doesn’t have stupid man moments like most do when dealing with women. Underneath it all he has to be a man of morals, conviction and of course he has to know how to love. I like writing heroes that have the perfect balance of possessive and protective qualities. Not so much that he is a scary stalker or a crazy psycho that wants to lock his woman in a basement somewhere, but a true partner. Someone that can meet the needs of his mate and fulfill the promises he makes. Now, I just need to find my perfect hero in real life… ;)

REBECCA JOYCE: Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. Some are strong, and handsome, while others are smart and lean. A hero is someone who goes above and beyond without any regard for him or herself. Their selfless actions make them stand out in a crowd, or it’s their quiet resolve as they just listen as they help another. A hero can be your best friend who helps you home after a long night, a parent who will guide you in making the right decision. A hero is a neighbor, who is always ready to lend a hand when your life seems overwhelming or a teacher who stays after school to give you that extra help you need to pass a class. Heroes live all around us. They don’t always need to be heroic and save the day. It’s the little things, like a phone call in the middle of the night just to say hi, a friendly hug when you’re upset, or a simple gesture of thanks, that makes someone a hero. So stop and turn around, because if you look closely, you can see a true hero in action.

SIOBHAN MUIR: I'm a huge fan of stories that have redemption in them. That doesn't mean I prefer bad boy heroes, but I really like and respect heroes who have flaws. They either are aware of them and work to counteract them, or they think they've got the problems handled and then some woman comes and messes it all up for them. I write the kinds of heroes I like to read. These men are strong, self-confident, and determined to get what they want, even if they go about it the wrong way. But they appreciate the qualities of the strong women they love. And almost all of my heroes love women who look like women rather than supermodels. So the perfect hero is a man who can save his lady, but might need a little saving of his own from her as well.

For the future she wants, Julianna must pass the tests to become Queen Bitch of Callowwood—or watch Jeff take another woman as his mate.
BELLA JUAREZ: 1. Authority: Who doesn’t love a big strong alpha man in uniform? The air of authority that comes with a uniform makes us women weak at the knees. The basic instinct of being protected and secure in a big strong alpha man’s presences is warm and inviting. And it helps that most of them are in pretty damn good shape. 2.Command and Control. Need I say more? How about those handcuffs? That water hose that could never douse the flame of desire these men set racing through you. The aggressive, hungry, way the come home after months on a warfront. There is also a tenuous vulnerability in these men that is sweet and attractive. 3. What about those big guns… *le sigh* 4. Rescue me! What woman hasn’t dreamt of a knight coming to rescue her? Doesn’t matter of it’s a street wise Sampson, GI Joe or just plain Officer/Fireman Joe. Who doesn’t want to be carried off and rescued? Show of hands please? You know they play as hard as they work. 5. Sensitivity to a cause greater than themselves: These big guys have an even bigger heart. They understand what’s at stake. They know that dedicating themselves to a higher purpose is not just a job but a calling. The need to be heroic isn’t their motivation. The desire to protect and serve is their driving force. Let’s not stop at number five… Give me six, seven, eight, nine, ten, etc…
