We're on day five of our journey with bad boy heroes. What is it about bad boy heroes we love? You tell us after you meet a few of the edgiest men a woman’s ever tamed.

Forward Passes
With two championships in as many years, superstar Tyler Harris is the best quarterback in the league. Gorgeous and rich, he’s at the top of his game. But everyone’s looking to take him down. There’s a building media frenzy around a (cough, cough) accident, and the only safe place seems a rundown mansion deep in the San Juans owned by his late great uncle. When Tyler meets his sassy redheaded neighbor, finally, he gets sacked.
Cassandra by Starlight
Watch for Zach’s story, the next Seattle Lumberjacks Romance – Down by Contact.

Cassandra By Starlight
Unconventional though she may be, Cassandra Wallace leads the life of an average Londoner, from blind dates to rush hour traffic. Then along comes Bennett Saville. Charming, erudite, the up-and-coming actor is like the hero of a romantic movie. He sets Cassie afire like he has the stage and screen, and defies the tragedy that brought them together. From the tips of his Armani loafers to their scorching hot first kiss, he’s perfect. Only, he’s ten years younger and from the upper class, and those emerald eyes invite dangerous secrets.
Bennett and Cassie’s story continues in Together in Starlight, coming soon.

The Genie Ignites
The Genie Ignites
Girl meets genie. They fall in love. Girl gets killed. Genie gets cursed. Three millennia later, she’s reincarnated as a smart, somewhat sardonic 21st century editor who can’t remember the great love of her existence. The genie however, will never forget her and fully intends to reclaim her.
Nobody's Angel
Book Two of the Zubis Chronicles will be released next month.

Nobody's Angel
Twenty years ago Jake and Angie were the couple everyone wanted to be. When they split, two halves of the same heart broke. With their high school reunion looming, will they find their way back to each other or continue to be haunted by what was?
Maneuvering through emotional minefields rates a 10 for difficulty level, particularly when Angie lives the maxim: Time does not heal all wounds. And Jake? Check the Wiki pic next to Pride comes before the fall. Yep, that’s him tripping all over himself year after year.

  1. Great post!
    I think bad boy heroes are irresistible because they know what they want and how to get it. That kind of confidence is definitely sexier than a tentative or uncertain man. That's not to say a bad boy hero can't be romantic, too. They can...and that's what makes the bad boy a hero. And these books are all great suggestions for that.
    Thanks!

    2. Much to my mother's chagrin, I love the bad boy, I married the bad boy. But he's saweeet, my bad boy. Joan B

  2. It's the change in the bad boys we love to see, likely only found in romance which is what makes these stories so irresistible!

    1. I've been married for 39 years, and I can state that my husband is not the same man I married. He's matured, steadied, become more of a nurturer, and he's (thank goodness) more in love with me now than when we met. I'm blessed. ^_^ But the confidence he shows when he knows he's right is part of why I love him even more. Yes, men can change and not just in romances. Still the reason I love reading these books though. I love knowing that we can have that kind of effect. Thanks, Regan.

  3. Forward Passes (great title!) is on my TB. I love sports stories, being a big fan of baseball and soccer. But my husband loves college football, so I also watch a lot of that. Bad Boys are fun to read.

    1. Terry, having watched the Superbowl with hubby, I have to agree. It's fun to watch with someone who knows what's going on. LOL

  5. I love bad boys, too. I love to redeem them but still keep a bit of the bad boy.

  6. Based on personal experience, the best kind of bad boy is the one who's undercover. Sure, he looks like a mild-mannered computer geek on the outside but behind closed doors...SHAZAAM!

  7. Forward Passes-intrigues....could have read this instead of watching the super bowl. This is a great site and I must say I am a bit slow on jumping on board here. I require a personal tutor, a glass of champagne, ruby slippers and a bar of soap....the latter is to keep me from whining so much. Thanks mom. So I'm in, now maybe I can be more helpful. And thirty-nine years Kayelle? That's awesome, then there's something in your writing that might give us all a hint. I'm on it. J Bird

    1. LOL Joan. ;) There's a little of my hubby in each of my heroes' personalities. He inspires me more than he knows.
