Strong, Sexy, Smart: Romance Heroines FTW!

Marked by Lauren Dane, Vivian Arend, and Kit RochaWe've got not one, but three* (*technically four!) authors at H&H today, talking about the heroines they love best. Lauren Dane, Vivian Arend, and Kit Rocha have just released Marked, an erotica anthology tied together by its tattoooed and/or pierced heroes and heroines. Thanks for joining us, ladies!

Today, we’re talking about smart women, and strong women, and sexy women. 

As you do.

And the reason this topic came up was because the three of us, Lauren Dane, Vivian Arend, and Kit Rocha (who is actually Donna Herren and Bree Bridges, so it’s the four of us, but I digress) got to chatting about the things we like in books, and the things we don't, and one thing always leads to another.

In our case, it led to us writing more stories!

But the conversation is an important one to have, as readers and writers. We all enjoy romance, and love to read books with a happily-ever-after. And there are so many different heroes we love, for many reasons. That’s a rabbit hole we can fall into easily—“insert names of current sexy dudes here.”

Are you back?

While the discussion rages on about what makes a hero attractive, ie he’s sexy or smart or…heroic, when it comes to the ladies, tastes can become more rigid. 

What’s a girl got to do to get a little lovin’ around here?

Authors Elle Kennedy and Vivian Arend on Hot Bods in Romance

Today we welcome not one, but TWO authors here to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Elle Kennedy and Vivian Arend both have releases on November 20; Elle's is Rocky Mountain Angel, and Vivian's title is Getting Hotter. They're with us today to talk about some hot bodies in romance. Thanks, Elle and Vivian!

Elle: I have never read a romance novel where the hero has anything less than a chiseled, rippled, delectable body. Not unless he lets himself go for a while after a devastating loss or trauma, but that period of extra-pound mourning doesn’t usually last long. The moment he’s back in action, he’s toned and muscly again—and let’s be honest, that’s the way we like it. Because, come on, we read to escape.  To fantasize.

[And why not? It's fun!...]
