Romantic Heroes

Why do cops and soldiers make such popular romantic heroes?
Is it because men look good in uniform? Are we attracted to rugged camouflage, navy whites, assault black?
Does the sense of danger and strength linked to those occupations hold special appeal to us?
Perhaps the attraction is the toned bodies – a career in law enforcement usually requires physical fitness.
Or, is it the sense of being protected, kept safe from harm that draws us to these men?
Whatever the explanation, law enforcement officers are some of our most popular romantic heroes. Below is the blurb for my new release, a sexy romantic novella featuring a rugged sheriff in a small town in Pennsylvania.

Trouble with the Law

Arrested for soliciting during a wedding in rural Pennsylvania, Justine Whitmore spends a steamy night with the local sheriff who clears up the misunderstanding and releases her. She never expects to see him again, but when an interfering busybody makes a complaint, Justine agrees to pretend a whirlwind romance in order to protect her reputation and the sheriff’s job.

Embittered by a divorce from a scheming city woman, Sheriff Mark Taylor has sworn to avoid her kind. No amount of cursing will change the fact that he fell for the wedding guest hauled into his office dressed in nothing but expensive underwear.

A country hick and a high maintenance PR executive – can they tolerate each other long enough to make it look real? But sometimes people are not what you believe them to be….

Available on Tuesday 17 November from Resplendence Publishing…
