THIS IS THE LAST STOP ON OUR HERO BLOG TOUR.
Thank you for joining us this week and meeting the very sexy Heroes
from New York’s Leading Romance Writers
HERO: Ben Mailer
Hometown: Bonnet, NY
Q: Which do you prefer – baseball or football?
BEN: Baseball, but I'll watch anything if there's a cold beer in my hand. As long as you don't make me row crew -- I had enough of that when I was a teen!
Q: Do you believe in love at first sight?
BEN: I guess I must, since it happened to me.
Q: Does sex mean love and marriage?
BEN: I'm the kind of guy who has to be invested before I go to bed with someone. I'm a little shy, I guess, and I don't want to make a mistake or do something I might later regret. It doesn't mean we have to get married, but I'm not really going for the one night stand.
Q: What attracted you first about the heroine?
BEN: Her confidence, comfort, and gorgeous curls. I went in to register at the campsite where my friends and I were going to be staying for the weekend and she was sitting with her hiking boots propped on her desk, reading. I wanted to get to know her right away. And okay, it didn't hurt that I totally knew she was checking me out.
Q: If you have sex on the first date, would you respect your Heroine in the morning?
BEN: I'm pretty sure Casey and I had sex before we even went on a first date, since we spent the whole weekend at the campground she runs. I probably had even more respect for her, since I discovered the insane swim she takes in the freezing cold lake when she wakes up at dawn. But honestly, any guy who says "no" to this question isn't someone I'd be friends with. Full stop.
Q: Give us a mini synopsis of your story with the Heroine.
BEN: It was supposed to be just a weekend away with friends. I had plans—to graduate from culinary school, get a job at an upscale New York City restaurant, and be the son my father always wished he'd had. Then I met the woman who made me rethink everything, and showed me how to live on my own terms.
