Loving The Hunky Hero

Welcome to this stop on the Hunky Hero Giveaway Hop!  Thanks for stopping by!  And thanks to the fabulous bloggers at Riverina Romantics for hosting this great hop. I do love me a hunky man.  Tall, dark, handsome...or maybe tall, blond, and gorgeous?  I'm open-minded. ;)  As an author who spends her time writing erotic romance, I have the pleasure of bringing fantasies to life in my stories.  What a job! 

And like readers, I fall in love with my hunky heroes.  I can't help it.  They're the embodiment of the perfect man, each and every one of them. 


Take my Sons of Navarus heroes Vasilije and Saint.  Vasilije is sensual, sexy, and dangerous.  He's the quintessential bad boy.  For me, the idea that he could be so incredibly hot, yet so seriously deadly is a turn on.  (I know I'm not the only one who likes bad boys. Admit it. :) 

And Saint is the tortured soul, the brooding hero.  As much as I love the sexy bad boy, I love the man whose past haunts him, whose darkness is more than just danger.  It's secrets from the past and things he did that still haunt him.  Love that!


If you've ever stopped by my Pinterest boards and checked out the Men board, you know I'm a fan of the hunky hero.  These are just three of the wonderful examples.

He's actually the inspiration for Saint.
That's just nice.
Look at those eyes.













Okay, enough drooling over men.  Let's get to the giveaway.  For this hop, I'm doing something a little different.  I've been doing the swag and Amazon gift card for the past few hops, so this time I'm changing it up.  I was walking through my local mall the other day and saw a wonderful metal bookmark in the window of a little specialty store. So this time I'm still giving one winner Sons of Navarus swag, along with one of those beautiful metal bookmarks I found.



Isn't it pretty?  And this is what the Sons swag looks like (fronts and backs of the bookmarks--they don't have borders around them, though. That's me playing around with Photobucket.):


So what do you have to do to enter to win?  The only mandatory entry is to leave a comment with your email address.  That's it. But I'd love it if you'd do the other entries in the Rafflecopter thing, especially liking the Sons of Navarus page and subscribing to my newsletter (I promise it's only once a month and I sometimes do newsletter only giveaways).  The giveaway is open internationally, so an email gets you in.  The winner will be chosen by random after the giveaway ends and will be notified by email. And if you already liked the Sons of Navarus FB page, follow me on Twitter, and/or subscribe to my newsletter, just let me know so I can count those entries for you. :)
