Ok~ so that was a shameless snatching of the song "It's Raining Men" but hey, it got your attention right? lol So I am here to blog about men in writing/reading books. What is your type? And you KNOW, we all have types. There is always that one that, every time we read about him, it curls our blood... makes us almost take care of business just by reading the book ( or writing about it... depending on what you're doing)!
Is he the Nordic type? Blonde, blue -eyed with muscles that ripple like a wrestler? Or maybe the dark and silent type? With his dark eyes that seem to follow you in your imagination with a burning desire to trap you in his gaze.
Mine is the dark and silent type for the most part. You know the one. He has great strength BUT doesn't look like he took a year of steriods and stayed 24/7 in the gym. Not lanky but not the young Arnold Schwarzenegger either. (That's just WAY too much for me). Got to be tall too (I'm 5 foot 8 so ya know... he's got to top at least 6 foot lol). Now, don't get me wrong, I do enjoy the blondes and even the light brown, blue-eyed cuties... but the dark and silent always get me. I suppose I am a sucker for the broody types that always end up showing a wicked sense of humor... among other things.
I started going through all of my books and realized that I really do have a type. Not all of them BUT most of the books I have bought have the same type of hero. I didn't realize that I had been collecting them until this weekend. So, go through your books. Look at the man and tell me... what is your type? lol.... Betcha that you have one! And I will even leave you with a picture of my man eye candy for the day .... Hope you enjoy him!
