Action! Adventure! Larger-than-Life Heroes in Romantic Suspense

No Place to Hide by Shannon StaceyToday Heroes and Heartbreakers is delighted to welcome author Shannon Stacey. Shannon's No Place to Hide, the fourth book of her Devlin Group series, is a thrilling romantic ride with the hero having to protect the heroine from an assassin while he struggles with how important she's become to him. Shannon knows heroes, having written many memorable ones in her various series, so she's here to talk about what makes those heroes larger than life. Thanks, Shannon!

No matter the subgenre, a romance hero is always a little larger than life. When I’m asked why readers love the heroes in my contemporary romance series, I often say it’s because they’re the kind of guys who could be real, and who you could meet at gas station. That’s not really true, though. The chances of running into a smoking hot guy who’s great in bed, has plenty of money, a nice truck, loves and respects his family, and can drink a beer without belching is pretty slim.

The hero of an action-adventure romance, though, takes larger than life to an entirely new level. He’s everything listed above, plus he’s dangerous. His confidence comes from knowing he can and will take on anything that comes his way, and it’s incredibly sexy.
