Swoon-Worthy Heroes: Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead

So, right about now, people are probably wondering…why Daryl? And why #TWD ? He’s not in a romantic relationship, although there are hardcore #shippers who imagine #Caryl riding off on Daryl’s motorcycle into the walker free horizon. Carol and Darylon the cycle I’ll admit, some of my favorite “AW” moments involve these too, but even without Carol, Daryl would be totally Swoon-Worthy. It’s the way he interacts with the whole group, from Season Two on, that makes Daryl a guy to fall for. shhh

Not a Walking Dead fan? That’s okay, let me catch you up.

The hero I will be introducing you to puts the sex in sexy, that’s for sure. If you haven’t pre-ordered Black Listed, it is the fourth novel in Shelly Bell’s Benediction series. Black Listed by Shelly Bell It is Erotic Romantic Suspense and it is definitely H-A-W-T! And so is our hero, Sawyer Hayes; billionaire, CEO, tech genius, alpha/dominant… drool

Don’t know what Benediction is? Well, it is a BDSM club and all of the books (from the White Collared serials to Black Listed) have several scenes take place in the club and all of the heroes and heroines meet and fall in love because they share a common interest; kink.

Swoon-Worthy Heroes: Leo Jensen from Brinda Berry’s THE BEAUTY OF LIES

This year, I made a promise to myself that I would read more. Since starting this writing journey, I found myself reading less and less each year. tv for your headNot that I stopped loving books, but like a lot of writers, I would start to compare my writing to others or even feel guilty for reading when I could be working. (Stupid, I know, but there it is.) I even started doing the Goodreads challenges to calculate how many books I was reading in my spare time. Sadly, in 2015, I barely broke twenty-five. horrified I know. For a girl who used to devour six or seven books in a week, this was just pitiful.

In 2016, my goal is fifty. One of the books I’ve picked up is The Beauty of Lies and boy, am I so glad I did. Because Leo, let me tell you, is hot. He’s sexy. He is kind, and caring and vulnerable and strong and…okay, so sometimes he can be dumb, just like every hero, but overall, Leo definitely falls into the Swoon-Worthy category. Plus, I mean, have you seen Berry’s cover for The Beauty of LiesThe Beauty of Lies Brinda Berry So gorgeous!!!

Swoon-Worthy Heroes: Declan O’Callaghan from Leap Year

After Matthew Goode stole my heart in Chasing Liberty, Chasing_Liberty_poster I was ravenous to see his adorable face again. So, when the romantic comedy, Leap Year, leap year poster came out with Amy Adams (who BTW, got one of her first speaking roles on Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV Show),Amy on BuffyI couldn’t wait to see it.

But if I thought Matthew Goode was cute with his native British accent, hearing his Irish brogue made my ovaries explode. Not to mention his character, Declan O’Callaghan, is a surly, sarcastic arse nursing a broken heart and sporting a rapier wit. speak cow

What’s not to love, right?

Swoon-Worthy Hero Highlights: Wade vs. George from Hart of Dixie

Over the holidays, I may have binge watched Hart of Dixie. Why? I don’t know, because I wanted to see Wade Kinsella shirtless in every episode? Perhaps. Watching it from the beginning I found myself at war throughout all four seasons, mostly over who Zoe should have ended up with. Because in the first episode, Zoe is marching along the side of the road, and handsome George Tucker shows up.

Now, from this very moment there was major sparkage between these two; they both had so much in common. They bonded as they drove to Bluebell, Alabama, but upon arriving in town, Zoe discovers that George is already engaged. Disappointed, and having a rough go of it, Zoe has a little too much to drink and ends up in the car of another Bluebell bachelor…Wade Kinsella, the town’s womanizing bartender. Wade’s already rubbed Zoe the wrong way,
