Romance Specialist Haylee Nash shares 10 ways to heat up a cold winter’s night…
I’m not sure about you, but there’s something about the promise of winter’s onslaught that makes me think longingly of red wine, long hot baths with a good book and cuddling up with a hot man. I mean this both literally and figuratively – men, at least in my experience, radiate heat, so there’s a practical reason to get close to them. But there’s also something about these cooler months which makes one feel decidedly romantic, the drop in temperature and icy winds conjuring images of candlelit dinners, deep conversations by the fire and long mornings in bed.
So, in celebration of these frosty times, I’ve decided to help you all warm up a little with my top ten hottest men in romance – so that even if you haven’t got a sexy hero to snuggle with at home, you can still have a hottie between the covers.
Wesley from The Original Sinners series by Tiffany Reisz
A virginal Texan sweetheart who’s willing to be as dirty as his mistress wants him to be – gotta love a man who’ll do anything to please his woman.
Travis from the Beautiful Disaster series by Jamie McGuire
A tattooed fighter with lots of experience in the bedroom who is utterly devoted to his lady.
A fiery Italian billionaire with revenge on his mind and desire in his loins. Yeah-yah!
Coop from Queen of the Road by Tricia Stringer
A scarred but loyal farmer who can chase down a sheep thief and woo a lady.
A deadly assassin with smarts, cunning, and bucket loads of sex appeal.
Caine from Caine’s Reckoning by Sarah McCarty
A hardened Texas Ranger with honourable intentions but wicked thoughts.
Dade from Love at First Sight by Lori Wilde
An ex-Navy SEAL who rides a motorbike. ‘Nuff said.
Travis from Black Jack by Lora Leigh
A renegade agent who can’t seem to keep his mind on the case.
Max is filthy rich, sexy and has a British accent. I picture Tom Hardy playing this character. And I could go on picturing him all day…
Mr Darcy from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I won’t insult your intelligence by saying why. You know why.
Obsessed with a sexy literary hero and devastated that he hasn’t been included in my list? Duke it out in the comments section below…
Haylee Nash is romance specialist at Booktopia and is now completely distracted by the thought of cozying up with a hot man. She has a very difficult job. If you see this post and do not comment below, post on the Romance at Booktopia facebook page and/or tweet her @LoveAtBooktopia, she’ll be really very upset. She’s fasting today, and thus very hungry and emotional.
