Spending the Day with Sexy Hot Heroes
Spending the day with sexy, hot heroes can be trying on the nerves not to mention the libido.Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. It’s kind of a dream job, and one I thoroughly enjoy.But sexy, hot heroes have issues that have to be dealt with and they can be demanding about it, especially when you’re dealing with more than one.
I deal with three to four sexy, hot heroes in one day, from the hero in my WIP, to the book I’m editing and future heroes that insist on being recognized, and what do they all want to talk about... women and sex. They’re adamant about what they want in their women, so you know I have to mess with them and toss in women that they never thought would suit them. They get annoyed at me and even more annoyed when it comes to sex. Either I’m not getting to the sex scenes fast enough or they’re not getting enough of it.
So how do I handle my sexy, hot heroes when they do that to me? I write sex scenes that surprise the hero and have them hanging over my shoulder smiling. Of course they have to add their own two cents and I do welcome it since they usually provide me with some great love scenes.
What I enjoy the most though is when they start talking about love. They all have different views on it. Some heroes are eager to fall in love, others reluctant, and some feel unworthy, but all of them agree on one thing... they will protect the women they love with their lives. And to love that deeply and so strongly in itself is sexy.
I have to admit that I’ve had some sexy, hot heroes that have failed to make the cut. They were gorgeous in my mind’s eye, hard bodies and stunning looks but as I got to know them they had no depth of character, not a bit of substance, and so they never made it as a hero.
Sex, hot heroes aren’t all about looks. It takes a lot more than that to make a hero sexy and hot. Respect, integrity, thoughtfulness, especially during those times he seems like an overbearing brut, you need to see that love is driving him or he’s no hero at all.
My hero in Untamed Fire, Raphael Cabrillo, can appear a brut at times, but there are reasons for his tyrannical nature. His station in life calls for certain expectations and duties, and then there is the incident in his past that has made him a bit overprotective. But he’s a man that loves deeply and that means everything to him.
I love spending the day with my sexy, hot heroes. It’s the best job ever!

Review:It has been a long while since I read a true pure historical romance without, immortal warriors and such. Let me just say this book reminded me of just why I fell in love with this genre way back when I was a teenager. Though at first, I was a bit confused at the beginning and wondered where that played into this book, it didn't take long to figure it out and enjoy this great read.
Gaby, I loved her. She is a feisty wildcat and from the very start she gives Raphael problems, to say she is more than a handful is a understatement and that is what makes her so much fun.
Raphael, I can see it now some of you might not like him and at first I wasn't so sure, but as I got to know him I knew there was more than just the broody, demanding man he is. And it takes Gaby to find that part of his heart he thought he had sealed off forever.
What I loved about this book, is not only I could feel what the characters were feeling, but the fact you could feel the sparks between this couple from the very start. It was a pretty fast read. Only thing I see wrong with this book is that it ended.
Would I recommend? If you love historical romance in it's truest form then get this book its well worth your time and money. Meanwhile I am going to go check out Donna Fletcher's other books. She definitely has gotten a new fan right here.
