In this month of giving thanks, I’ve been invited to participate in a week long celebration of Historical Romance, #Thx4HistoricalRom The hosts have put together a lovely grand prize package and my own Dangerous Works is in it. in addition authors will be offering giveaways daily.
The title got me thinking about heroes, and the coincidence of Veterans Day this week. My own heroes don’t run to the ubiquitous dukes. I posted these questions: Do you need your heroes to be dukes, the regency equivalent of the jet setting billionaire? Or are you happy with a plain mister? What do you look for in a hero?
Most people who commented so far don’t seem to care about those titles. A few mentioned humor. Only one said dominant and another said money doesn’t hurt.A typical comment is:
“. . . courageous, honorable, intelligent, brave – of course good looking doesn’t hurt.”
Others cited loyalty. Many mentioned that they want the hero to be protective. Hmm. That does sound like our veterans, doesn’t it?
So thanks for the dukes, earls, and viscounts (and marquesses, barons and plain misters) who keep us entertained in historical romance. Thanks for the first responders who exemplify all those heroic qualities in our own day. And thanks for the loyal, courageous, honorable veterans who serve to protect us all.
