Book Blogger Hop

This week's Questions is...
 
 "Tell us about one of your posts from this week and give us a link so we can read it (review or otherwise)!"

Well, I have links to all this week's posts at the top of this, so I will link to one from a different week. How about the Indie Reads Blog Hop? I am still looking for people to participate in this, you guys are slacking :) The hop is apart of The Indie Reads Appreciation Week and to help promote our favorite indie authors. So, please sign up :)

I also participate in Follow Friday, so those of you who popped by from that, thank you - and thank you parajunkee for hosting it!   

This Week's Follow Friday Question is..

What is your favorite romance hero-type? Stereotype wise. Do you like the strong silent type or the brute macho man?

 

My vote goes to the strong silent type. I hate macho men, they just irritate the feminist in me. I cannot stand it when the men just sort of push the female characters around and do whatever they want. I enjoy a strong male character, but he's got to let the girl do her own thing. I am thinking along the lines of Adam Hauptman from Patricia Brigg's Mercy Thompson series and Jeff Martini from Gini Koch's Katherine "Kitty" Katt series. Those two just make me melt :)

Silent types are good in my opinon, when the heroine is strong, because if the heroine is a girl that you want to smack her head in the floor, this kind of hero doesn't work well for them.

I'm your newest follower :D

I'm with you all the way with your comment regarding the macho brutish types! The feminist inside me cringes too. They don't leave much room for butt-kicking heroines which the literary world needs more of!

Brittany @ Nice Girls Read Books said...

YES! That's exactly my problem with the big, macho men! Especially when they don't think a woman can handle herself and act like cavemen and wanting to 'claim' them and whatever, urgh! Strong Silent Types FTW!! :D

Check out my FF this week

Savannah said...

Well put! I never appreciate a man who will walk all over women. Here's what I said.

I love the dark broody type with the fierce protectiveness to the people they love.

Yes, I couldn't agree more! I can't stand big pushy dumb guys... which is probably why I don't read very much romance. Too many alpha males! Give me a sensitive, misunderstood sort any day.

The Post Is:

This week I reviewed a work of suspense fiction that is such a wide departure from the thriller genre that I feel everyone – fans and foes of the genre alike – really should investigate.

Hop on over to my blog and see for yourself – http://www.howardsherman.net

Happy Hop. I like the strong silent type. But sometimes the macho type works for me.
