What makes a hero has been discussed here earlier. We all pretty well know that real life heroes don't come in tidy packages that are easily recognizable even though we are trained through films to think they do. I like to write about heroes who stand tall when the going gets rough. I've had some of them officers of the law. Heroes in a book of mine are likely to go through a tough time which will test their mettle. They will fall in love with a woman where it's not a given that it will work out-- or wouldn't be if it wasn't a romance.
Paranormal romances again change the rules as they don't have to have a romance that works out-- at least not in one book. They do have heroes who are facing the bad, who don't stick their heads in the sand or run. They are the ones out there on the front line when there is trouble.
Most of the time romances have one hero and heroine but a trilogy rather changes things. As this story moves closer to why this all has been happening, a new hero is dominant.
The hero of the first in the trilogy is Cole Morgan. By the third book, has accepted who he truly is. He is ready to be a warrior though it wasn't his choice for his life. He has a son and a wife he dearly loves. He would give up his own life to keep them safe. That might come to be.
Pace Emerson now runs Myra's Box Z from where all the trouble is originating. He isn't a man ever to run from trouble. As a Druid by birth, he can see and talk to the other side. He can throw energy and always has stood up for the right.
These three men are strong, willing to fight even when it's against the unknown. Storm in the Canyon pits them against very much the unknown but with their women at their sides.
There are two other heroes in this book-- a two year old boy and a geologist/sorcerer but since they don't get a romance-- yet, no pictures.
Yeah, I know all the men are without shirts. That isn't because I love men without a shirt... It's just coincidence... Honest ;)
