Today I'm on my soapbox.
|Two of My Heroes|
Heroes; gotta love 'em! But riddle me this: How come it's okay to have a heroine who is (ahem) an armful (EX: Bet Me by Jenny Cruisie), but our heroes must be tall and buff?
Remember little David who slew Goliath using brains over brawn? There's proof that not all heroes have to be tall and buff. David's been admired for thousands of years.
My husband accuses us romance writers of writing heroes men can't easily relate to, because they're all too physically perfect. I have to admit, I think he has a point. Character makes a true hero.
What do you think?
