THE MARRIAGE ALLIANCE.



THE ROMANCE HERO DEFINED
by Mageela Troche


Regency Rake
The Regency Rake: A finely dressed gentleman hiding his inner bad boy and seeking reformation. Every woman wants to reform this man and make him respectable. He can be worth all the hard work and anguish, but only if you are the right woman.



Highlander


The Highlander: A strong man who values his family. He will protect his clan and has an honor code he will die upholding. Looks great in a kilt.


The Sports Hero: The guy seems to have it all. In truth, he needs someone to make having it all worth it all.


Cowboy
The Cowboy: The strong silent type who will be at your side. A gentleman beneath the rough work hands, and can sweep you onto a horse and ride off into the sunset.




Soldier

The Solider: The brave man with a strong belief system and a tender heart beneath the kill-you-with-his-bare-hands exterior. War may have traumatized him but he signed up to protect his nation not for the honors. Looks yummy in a uniform.


Boy Next Door

The Boy Next Door: The guy you never spare a look at. He is the man who has been there through the jerks you date. Fires may build slowly, but will burn the longest. 



The Friend: A guy you shared jokes and maybe drinks. You have set him up with all your friends. Then one day, something changed and the world looks new again. Tread lightly—you may lose a good friendship if not right, so make your coupling the right one.


The Ex-boyfriend: The one you dated, but never left your heart. This hero can disrupt your life, but if the right man, he can give you Happily-Ever-After. Only return if changes to the problems have been fixed; otherwise, you are wasting your time. So, heroine make him change.


The Defender: The police officer, the fireman, and the other civil servants. Can be closed off because of the evils he has witness and has a protective instinct. Heroines, show him your strength and he’ll respect you in the morning, and let you behind his shield.

  1. Wow - how does one choose? Well, if I have to I'll pick the soldier. (The heroes of my first novel and my work-in-progress are both army officers.) But my second choice would be cop or firefighter -- I do love a man in uniform!
    Good post, Mageela!

  2. My favorites: The Highlander and the Defender. But they all have the same traits and that's honor, courage, and sex appeal :)

  3. Cowboy...Highlander...Soldier...Rake...I love them all, but I gotta go with Highlander today. They live and die for their family, their clan, and that's an honorable and beautiful thing.
