This week's question:
Heroes in historical romance like the extremes - the virgin hero or the rogue rake. Which of the two makes you shudder in pleasure?

Oh I totally didn't expect a question like this! I.... prefer a rake most of the time. If they aren't too mean or arrogant, or can pull the arrogance off, then the rake isn't afraid to say what he wants and is ok with being aggressive!  I want the hero to have a bit of darkness, to have a couple skeletons in his closet. I like the books where the hero comes walking in with stubble on his chin and bruises on his knuckles because he was off on some debauchery the night before. My kind of rogue is all about giving his chick what she wants while making sure he gets his own too! :)

What about you? What is your favorite in those steamy historical romances? :)


  1. Mmmm... love your description! A little darkness in a hero is preferable, but you don't always have to be the rake to give off that effect! :-)

    Here's mine:


  2. Wow great answer! I love my rogue a little dark and dangerous too with skeletons in his closet. That makes him so much more attractive!
