For me, Hot Heroes are men who are willing to step forward and help where help is needed, someone willing to do the right thing even when it goes against the grain and oh, alright, those with buff bods and in some kind of uniform..
When I think of heroes, I think of firemen. In fact, my series called Emergency Calls, feature almost all firemen and para-rescuemen rescuing smart attractive women from dangerous situations. My books are fiction but in real life firemen rescue people in real life situations.
Last year, we invited the local fire department to come and speak at our writing chapter and they were so humble and caring that alone increased the hot hero status.
I wrote a full length novel featuring a policeman and then I wrote a novella of his police partner's story. My first story is called "the Sass and the Brass" The novella doesn't have a title to date.
Both were a lot of fun to write.
So who are heroes (hot or not) in your opinion? Feel free to share.
