Marie Laval discusses the perfect hero

Who is my perfect hero?  I don't know.  I think as I've matured, my hero has grown and developed with me.  There once was a time when nothing mattered, but whether he was tall, dark, and handsome :-)  Now, I have as much or more of an attraction to a man whose mind is as interesting as his physique.

My own heroes mimic this.  They "feed" both their mind and bodies.

Marie discusses with me how important the eyes of her hero are to her.  How her ability to daydream about him brings him to life.

Join us this week at Romancing the Pen, and tell us what you think.



Arrogant, selfish and dangerous, Lucas Saintclair is everything Harriet Montague dislikes in a man. He is also the best guide in the whole of the Barbary States, the only man who can rescue her archaeologist father from the gang of Tuareg fighters that has kidnapped him. As Harriet embarks on a perilous journey across Algeria with Saintclair and Archibald Drake, her father’s most trusted friend, she discovers a bewitching but brutal land where nothing is what it seems. Who are these men intent on stealing her father’s ransom? What was her father hoping to find in Tuareg queen Tin Hinan’s tomb? Is Lucas Saintclair really as callous as he claims—or is he a man haunted by a past he cannot forgive? Dangerous passions engulf Harriet’s heart in the heat of the Sahara. Secrets of lost treasures, rebel fighters, and a sinister criminal brotherhood threaten her life and the life of the man she loves.

Does forever lie in the lion’s embrace?
