Why I love a strong man 
Full disclaimer: I am married to a geek. He’s in great shape, but he’s not exactly lifting cars with one finger. But what I love to read about in my romance novels isn’t always the same as what I have in real life. What would be the point of reading if it was?

I love a strong man. Sure, being emotionally strong is a great thing, but that’s not what I’m talking about. No, I’m referring to sheer physical strength. You know, the ability to leap a tall building in a single bound. Being able to open pickle jars. Giving a great big bear hug.

These are important skills for a good romance hero to have. As much as I don’t like wimpy heroines I can still appreciate a hero who protects his woman; who lets her be a woman. There’s something kind of comforting in knowing your man can single-handedly fight off a bunch of bad guys. Or kill a spider.

What task do you hate doing that you either make your man do or wish you could find one so you wouldn’t have to do it yourself?

"Radio producer Jamie MacMahon is in over her head with ex-hockey player-turned host Drew Milan. She’s attracted to the man who earned the nickname “the Beast” during his playing days from the moment they meet, but he’s her boss and she loves her new job. She’s made plenty of mistakes with men and loathes the thought of being yet another plaything for Drew, a man who sleeps with women but doesn’t date them. Drew doesn’t want to lose a great producer and knows Jamie deserves a real relationship, but can’t stay away from the sizzling chemistry they create every time they’re together. Jamie’s insecurities and the very real prospect of having to leave a great job if this thing doesn’t work out, coupled with Drew’s fears about opening his heart and the possibility of losing his first competent producer clash."

HOT Excerpt:
The elevator doors opened, and Drew hurried to unlock his apartment and punch his code into the security pad before continuing straight to his bedroom. He spun and picked Jamie up as she neared the door, and she let out a squeak of protest.
      “What? I’m trying to be romantic. Efficient too.” He grinned at her when she struggled to get out of his grip. The way she fought against him both amused and aroused him. “Not so fast,” he warned her. “I’m not planning to let you get away until I’m good and finished with you.”
      Jamie cocked an eyebrow. “Good and finished? Be still my heart! Such dreamy talk from a man like you! I had no idea.”
      Drew laughed and dropped Jamie on the king-size bed with enough force to make her bounce, then climbed on top of her. Before she could protest again, he’d pressed his erection into her belly and taken her lips in another deep kiss. Jamie melted beneath him, snaking her hands around his neck while his found her hips, pulling her closer. “You need to get naked,” he declared, rolling off her.
      “Just me? That’s hardly fair. If I’m getting naked, then this time, so are you.” Her beautiful, full lips pouted at him.
      He stood up, and in seconds, his pants and boxer briefs landed in a heap on the floor. He pulled his shirt over his head and added it to the pile. “Your turn.”
      Jamie rose up on her elbows and stared at him in disbelief. “How did you do that so fast? And may I add, very nice.” She smiled and waggled her eyebrows, giving him a quick once-over.
      “When I want something, I don’t waste time. And I want you naked. Now.”
      He reached over and started yanking her top over her head, but she batted his hands away.
      “Hey -- stop that. You’re going to dislocate my shoulder with your beastlike strength.”
      Drew laughed but allowed Jamie to gently pull her blouse over her head. He took it and tossed it on the chair near the window. Next she tugged her jeans off, leaving her in only her bra and panties, which Drew made short work of.
      He groaned when she was fully nude. “God, you’re fucking gorgeous, you know that? And I’m gonna put my hands and my tongue and my mouth and my cock everywhere on and in your beautiful body, so you better be ready.”
      Jamie shivered, and he covered her body with his, kissing her briefly before moving down her jawline, sucking and licking. This is gonna be good.

Hope you guys will explore this debut author and enjoy her works as I am planning to do! 


  1. I actually do admire physical strength--the way men can lift things. Wow! I also like that my hubby can figure out how to fix stuff. That's really handy.

  2. I love a handy man, Cara! My hubs has the gift of spatial relations, which by itself is a huge help, since I do not. If we buy something that has to be put together he can look at all the parts and just DO it. I have to follow the directions bit by bit and hope I don't have spare parts at the end!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. My husband is the man around the house, he kills the spiders (or at least tells me he did when he takes them outside), does all the trash and outside jobs including keeping my car running - I would be lost without him! The book sounds great - hockey to love a man who can skate...

  4. I don't like doing dishes. HATE THEM. So I cook, he does dishes. Fair trade don't you think? I always use more pots and pans than needed. :)

  5. Dtchycat - Don't you love a man who takes care of you? And YEAH... hockey players. YUM!

    Kati R - I hate dishes too! They never get done, just temporarily battled into submission.

    Johanna - Same with laundry. It's never done!

    Thanks for stopping by, ladies!
