Beyond the usual
When you ask most people who's 'hot', they'll tell you Brad Pitt. Johnny Depp. Hugh Jackman. David Beckham.
Notice what they all have in common? no, not that they're hot, that's a given.
They're all white.
What's up with that?
So let me expand your hottie horizons with some eye candy you might not have oggled before.
A lot of my heroes are Asian, and I find that there aren't a lot of Asian heroes out there in romance land. I'm not quite sure why. It's a topic that is brought up occasionally in the blogosphere. I really like this post about what romance really is. Another great post is by author Camy Tang, who was apparently told to write her heritage. Found here.
What does this all mean?
Actually, nothing much. It's just some filler text around the hunky men at the end of the day.
So, what kinds of heroes do it for you? Are there certain things about a handsome hunk that just make you swoon? How important are his eyes, his hair, his skin? What body type do you find yourself going for?
And most importantly, are those the heroes you write and read?
