I like the gentle seducer. Perhaps he takes his time, is subtlely working his way into your life, your affections. His moves seem to "sneak upon you"!
I'm easy, I have yet to find a hero that I do not like!
Boy this sounds like a good book...can't wait to read it!!!
I'm currently reading somethingorother "in White," by Queen Nora. It has an
I think I'd go for the sexy nerd hero, too. ALthough, reading romance novels, I'm with Barbara, that I always like the heros. Otherwise I wouldn't read the book!
I love them all! As long as they are written well and fit the story it is all good! I love the Hurst series and can't wait to read Michael's story!
Whoa, Indiana Jones meets Henry Higgins? How'd I NOT know about this? I am a sucker for the nerd hero...sigh...I've got my own at home :D
I LOVE a tortured hero!! Definately my favorite.... however, I don't seem to NOT like any romantic hero.
I love all sorts of heroes - they all make my heart melt. Thanks for the chance to win the tale of yet another wonderful hero. Nancy
I love a hero who is strong yet sensitive to women, children and animals.
I dig the Physical Warrior hero type with a mix of the sexy nerd. A hero I most recently fell in love with was Jim Owens from The Other Guy's Bride. He was strong and a fighter who could protect, but he was also very smart. On top of that he was funny, there was a part at the beginning of the book where he pretended to be this lawless cowboy ruffian because that was what the heroine stereotyped him as.
I would love to win this book. Thank you for writing really
So far as my reading, I like lots of types of heroes. On a personal level, though, I'd have to say that sexy nerd rates at the top!
I love the intellect of the hero - be he a "nerd" or a gentleman that actual has a business. I like that when such characters are written - there is wit and anjoyable conversations, that there are fireworks on multiple levels. I prefer the "nerd" in life too, so maybe I am partial.
I'm not particular about the type of hero. It depends upon the plot as to which type is needed. Once I start reading a book, I block out everything that is going on around me.
I don't know if I've read a book with a nerdy hero. They're usually the Alpha warrior type. Now I'm interested in reading about a nerdy hero though.
Hello, everyone! I am so pleased to visit with you all today! I'm tickled so many of you like the nerdy, brilliant explorer type of hero. I have to say that so far, Michael Hurst is my favorite hero that I've written. I wish this forum had direct replies so I could comment on each post individually, but it doesn't. SO, I'll just pop in now and then and answer any questions you guys may have. Meanwhile, thank you for taking to time to read about Michael and his nerdy-hero-ness! :)
love the title, hope its a good read
Karen I loved the comment you made about its fiction why cant we have it all? Oh so true. After all isnt that why we all curl up with good book in the first place to escape?
I like the nerd hero and the Regency setting sounds good,too. I have a book by Heather Snow and the Regency heroine is a scientist, I believe (nerd heroine, anyone?).
I love my heros to be both the nerd and the war-force. I am lucky to have a real-life hero-a badboy. He is my hero cause he did rescue me from a bad situation, and I love him more for that.
I tend to like them all. I do get tired of the "alpha" male
Love your books. Looking forward to reading this book.
I love the variety of heroes out there... he can be nerdy or the fighter, the prince or the pauper, etc... I am always looking forward to the journey he makes to get to his HEA!
Who doesn't love a sexy Indiana Jones. :) A little bit nerdy but physically strong too. :)
Holly, absolutely! That's exactly what fiction's for. :)
I guess I am easy to please: someone who can take command, save the maiden, and carress the baby all in one!!!
What a combination, Henry Higgins and Indiana Jones!
Indiana Jones, a little nerdy and afraid of snakes.. just my kinda guy....
Personally, I'd settle for a "Sexy Nerd Warrior." That way, you get it all!
Sexy nerd heroes are definitely my favorites. I loved the librarian movies on tv.
I love a hero who is a reader, a thinker, and - of course - brilliantly successful in his field. It doesn't hurt if he's also tall, dark, sexy and has a six-pack abs like Explorer and Egyptologist Michael Hurst. Your words of course!
Ilove to read this type of book. thanks for the giveaway.
I will also always love Indiana Jones. =) And I love when authors use him as
Sexy Nerds can be great fun - I'm thinking McGyver.
I prefer the gentle seducer type of hero, and a great body doesn't hurt either......
Yes, yes, yes! Keep writing about those nerd heroes - with great abs!
I love all the heroes in romance books. Can't really say that I have a favorite one.
I like all kinds of heros, but sexy nerd is one of my favorites.
Not only do I love the sexy nerd hero in novels, but I married my own. :^)
Both "The Sexy Nerd Hero" & "The Gentle Seducer Hero" appeal to me the most but sometimes the "Physical Warrior Hero" is good too so I guess it all depends on what kind of story I want to read at the moment.
You might find my comment a bit odd, but I like my hero a cross between the nerdy type and the gentle seducer. The reason I give that answer is because if they're totally nerdy, the romance tends to be a bit stiff, if you pardon the pun. He needs to have the gentle seductive side to him to give the story a bit of air and sustenance that sweeps you off your feet and makes you not only fall in love with him, but get swept away with the story line. I love the thought process you put into your book, and remember the characters you've chosen very well. I would love to read it more than you know. Wonderful cover, and I'm sure a wonderful read!! Congratulations!!
What a great idea! Indianna Jones/'enry 'iggins all wrapped up into one. The strong virile type & the gentle bookish man all rolled into a delicious hero. I do like them both; witty, charming, intelligent, & "human". The book sounds like another of your "good reads"!!
Thank you all for such warm and encouraging comments! It looks like you guys are on the same page I am -- that sexy nerds are terrific heroes. And oh, I hope you will all like Michael Hurst!
I love your books. Especially about all of those Scotsmen!
I like the physical warrior type hero... although I LOVE Indiana Jones. One of my
i love the color of the book and then they look great i am sorry that i have not read any of them would love to read and blog on them
Another series for me to fall in love with!
I love nerds, perhaps because I've got more in common with them than most other people; I've always been considered a nerd myself, except for my love of romances. However, I also read books on subjects from archaeology and astronomy to geology to theology, and others between. It all depends on my mood.
When I read "Regency sexy nerd heroes" I thought, does she mean Oscar Wilde? In those days the image we have of intellectual men is mostly poets. This was not of course a desired quality in a lady as an intellectual young woman might not catch a husband. Once married she could reveal her true colours and I am sure many women ended up running the husband's estate, especially if he was away at war. I don't think the mooning poet type would be my hero, but the adventurous type you describe, studying Egypt and deciphering heiroglyphs, that lad would go down a treat!
I'll take a sexy, nerd hero any day. I like my men intelligent.
Brains are the way to go. I am always telling my daughters
I find this information very usefull for making future
I much prefer a sexy nerd to a self-absorbed (but reclaimed) jerk who can revert
I love my hero's anyway I can take them.........lol. I live my live precriously through reading lot's of books!!!!!! Love Historial Romance and many other genre's.......
Hmmm, Hero-Nerd or Physical, Totally Sexy Warrior...how about the Nerdy-physical-sexy-warrior? LOL - I have been leaning more towards the nerdy-sexy-dude! I am sure that he could teach me ALL sorts of interesting things!
I love nerdy heroes!
I actually love them all. :) They all have the loyalty, compassion and Warrior instincts to protect the helpless, the ones they love and have a sense of duty that makes them amazing.
I love most heroes. If the book is good, then it usually follows that the hero is also likeable. I do like a little humor in books though.
I like a vulnerable hero who knows how to seduce and does it well.
