Winter Wonder Man Blog Hop

Posted by tjmanderino on January 15, 2014 at 9:10 PM

Welcome to this stop on the Winter Wonder Man Blog Hop!

With so many wonderful heroes out there, what’s a girl to do?

From January 16th through January 19th you can check out the links on the blog hop and discover new heroes, including my favorite, Alex in Bound by Blood. Sure, Alex is a vampire, but everyone has something.

 Tall, dark and handsome is the generic description of Alex. It’s his desire to protect what is his that makes him a hero. What makes a man (or vampire!) a hero for you?  What makes a hero in movies and books wonderful to the point your toes curl?


  Just hop along for chances at prizes including gift cards to Barnes & Noble or Amazon. There are prizes and swag at each stop on the hop. For a chance to win a download of Bound by Blood, please leave your name and email address in the comments section and I will select one random winner at the end of the hop.

Be sure to visit all of the authors on the hop! Click here to discover more wonderful heroes.

A vampire that is caring and looks out for the weak when he doesn't have to makes him a hero for me. Thank you for the giveaway and taking part in the hop!

A protective (not overprotective) man is appealing. Not sure about the vampire part though.

Swoon-worthy quality for me is someone who is funny but not mean or obnoxious about it.

He is dark and dangerous, yes. Almost as much as bad guy, Sawyer, from "Lost" who was my choice for a toe curler.

I cast my vote for Jamie Fraser from the Outlander series. (Thank you, Diana Gabaldon!) And what about Jack Ryan from the Tom Clancy novels??

Tall, dark and handsome is a start. I also like them smart, alpha, sweet with a little bit of a dangerous side.

I hate to say it, but with the weather we're having, my idea of a perfect hero is a guy who will get up early and shovel the driveway, right after making me a huge cup of hot chocolate :)

I love anakin skywalker. I don't know why so many people loath Star Wars prequel. for me it's makes me love Vader more.... We could see him as a human, who could make mistakes too...

I, too, like tall, dark, and handsome...and sometimes brooding and wounded. On TV, I like heroes like Reece on Person of Interest (played by Jim Caveziel). YUM.

My perfect hero is tall, muscular,confident,loyal, Alpha,bad-ass, intelligent, protective, vulnerable and majorly damaged -- but ultimately redeemable!

Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

In order for a man or a vampire to be a hero, he must be SEXY and tough but sweet and caring for others.
