Hot Summer Heroes Blog Hop Going On Now!

Hot Summer Heroes Blog Hop Going On Now!

The Blog Hop begins Monday, August 13th and ends Sunday, August 19th! 

Thanks for stopping by my site! I’m giving away a free digital copy of The Long Road Home, which is a contemporary romance or Shrouded in Darkness, a dark paranormal/sci-fi romance. Both books are written by H. D. Thomson, my pen name. OR if you are an author, a graphic button to advertise your book. Your choice!

I would love to have you sign up for my newsletter for contests and latest book releases while you’re here.

My idea of a hot hero is the type of men I write. Very normal, everyday men, BUT once thrust into strange and dangerous situations, they overcome extreme odds to champion the people they love. Yes they may be hot to look at but they are just as hot inside where it counts 🙂 .

To get a free digital copy, don’t forget to add a comment with your email below the blog hop list. The grand prize is a gift card to Barnes & Noble, and I’m sure there a so many other prizes on the hop!

Also, I’d love to hear what makes a hero hot to you!

    Wow! I didn’t know this was you… oops 🙂
    Thanks for doing the International giveaway.

    Well I like the alpha, confident males, who go all softy, sweet for their woman. But we still all know who is in charge 😉

    My ideal hero is someone that is more dominate! I like a guy that knows how to take charge! I love Cabal from Lora Leigh’s series Breeds.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

    I like big, strong alpha male types, Protective, confident, kind and thoughtful for others, goes after and works for what he wants. A take charge kind of guy.

    Great prize! Wish I was an author, I’d love the button.
    My hot hero is a bad boy, who is tortured enough that he believes he’s not good enough
    to be in love. He’s strong, honest, hardworking, possessive, will fight for what he believes in,
    and redeemable.

    Love it. Don’t have much idea of what I’m doing but must post this: I was privileged to read the Long Road Home. There are scenes which made me split a gut. The hero proved interesting and deeper than one might first expect.

    The heroine had alot on her plate. She had good motives for what she did, when she did what she did, and why she did those things. I really loved the cross country road trip especially about (I believe) Dallas. LOL.

    Shroud of Darkness had a wickedly amazing villian or two so you can believe I’m looking forward to #2 in the series. jean

    I really go for the guy that has just a little too much testosterone LOL but has the lady that he allows to kick his ass back inline! Kresely Cole is great at those characters! Conrad is all badass in her book but Neomi kicks back! Love them! Great contest! Thanks!

    I like the character traits usually mentioned – loyal, brave, sense of humor, confident, alpha male, strong sense of justice etc., but I’m going to add a physical one that really gets me going – tattoos 🙂

    Thank you for this great hop!

    The kind of hero that I love is one who is not only protective of the people he loves, but is faithful too.

    Sexy, strong, loyal and fearless! Ian from Killer Secrets by Lora Leigh emobodies this. He fought for what he wanted and would not give up! Ian is one of the best hero’s that I’ve ever read. He had flaws but used them for good. His courage was inspiring.

    Love the contest. THANKS!

    A hero to me is a man who is willing to sacrifice himself for the people he loves and a passionate cause to him. He is loyal, protective, fierce, strong, honorable but walks the line. 😉
    There are many more traits but these are the ones at the top for me. Thank you for the giveaway.
