I like to read about characters that have a wide variety of professions... I want to read about characters that are like all of us... with their own personalities... whether they are a dog walker, pastry chef, teacher, cowboy, firefighter, etc... let who they are shine through the pages of a book!
I think most people associate certain traits with profession.... eg lawyers are wordy and cerebral...etc... But I like reading about different professions too!
I love the professions of heroes. But I think I really considered this when I was
I like to read about character in different professions. If I read about a lawyer in one book, the next book I read the main characters will have some other profession.
I like ones that are technical or have technical details I can hook scenes,
There are quite a few professions I like reading about. But I didn't see any military on that list or a construction worker. I would love to read about a man who runs a local grocery store or something average and normal. Not everyone is super successful or has a dangerous job. Hey my daddy was a letter carrier someone has to do those jobs you know. :)
HI TRACY! HMMMM CAN I TAKE ALL OF THE ABOVE? LOL
I AGREE PATTI! I MARRIED MY LETTER CARRIER! LOL
I love stories about cowboys heros.Boy would I love one to ride up and sweep me off my feet. Thanks for giving me a chance to win your book.
I like cowboys because I met quite a few in western Nebraska. But I like reading about all kinds of professions, the more obscure the better. I'm kind of surprised private detective and cop (as opposed to sheriff) weren't on the list.
It was fun to find my farmer/rancher husband in the number 5 category.
I like to read about heroes in unexpected professions---why not try an accountant, nobody expects them to be a sexy hero.
He could do anything. It would not matter to me. A good author and good story could make him sexy and then make his job fit him! hehe
The cowboy and bodyguard seem mighty appealing. I also think spies can be pretty manly, too, if they're men that is.
Where is the Highlander???
I'm a sucker for a body guard. They have to have lots of muscle!
You came up with very interesting professions, but I have a couple that you could expand upon. For Cowboy, there's also the Cattle Driver. For Doctor, a Veterenarian also hits a soft spot in everyone's heart. I also thought about Navy Seals, Shopkeepers, and Hotel Owners, who could give you an interesting story line. I'm sure I'd love anything you write. I'll be going now to sign up on your site.
For the most part, those are pretty good choices as job/professions. On the other hand, I love hearing about unusual jobs or those jobs used in different milieus or countries. I like to learn something new in every book I read and these are some of the angles that give me that. That's also why I prefer historical novels to historical romances.
I like reading books that have a new twist, whether it is
Hahaha, this is such a cool topic! I love knight tales, or maybe like a king's advisor or bodyguard. :D But mostly, I prefer historical positions rather than the moderm day professions cause I think with all those carriages, gowns and street lamps, everything just seems more romantic. :D
A amn who enjoys his work, who is passionate about his career, who can't resist sharing his enthusiasms about vocation or avocation - now, that's sexy! My husband's a meteorologist - and really, I love to listen to him and his colleagues talk about their favorite weather event or their work - they love what they do!
I like to read Regency Era stuff and I personally enjoy reading stories with gentleman, lords, and rakes but the most important thing is the story and how the author writes it. Royalty can also be interesting.
I like all the above and would add Home Construction owner. The have muscles from helping out on the site and would be handy to have to build their home. lol I love romance of all kinds and mix in suspense or mystery to keep me guessing and dreaming.
I enjoy reading about different professions. The most important factor is the hero's character, not what he does for a living.
Agree with Beth Fuller about the male characters being passionate about their work. Would like to see a male character that is a steamfitter or a kindergarten teacher.
A man in uniform is always sexy.
Your book sounds very interesting. Love sea life, especially
I enjoy reading about the hard working hero finally getting whats good for them. My cowboys, highlanders, seals and such rough guys and then that passion that comes out whether it be smooth or fierce it gets down to the soul (Mmmmm). I will say though that I've recently met an account manager that well.. lets just say surprise, surprise.. just saying :) Love your books, keep them coming. Thanks
I enjoy reading about heroes in any type of profession. Love cowboys, teachers, doctors, firefighters, cops, scientists, etc. Love romances of any kind--throw in the pool boy, repairman, or delivery guy into the mix (whew)! Thanks.
Another great concept for heroes is if they are a musician of some sort or if they are some kind of an athlete. The most important thing though is that they must be passionate about something whether it is their job or life in general but they must have some kind of passion in their personality.
I love the list but... I think your missing Highlander / Cheif. I know they are one of my favorites. Who doen't love a man in a kilt.
