“What makes a hero in movies and books wonderful to the point your toes curl?”
I love this question and had a VERY good time thinking on it. I mean, who wouldn’t want to spend time thinking about the allure of our heroes in movies and books?! It didn’t take long to decide who I wanted to share with you today. There are only a token few who truly make my toes curl, and my heart race. WELCOME TO THE LAND OF THE TOE CURL…
What is it about Superman that makes me swoon every time I see him? Well, he’s tortured, for one. That alone makes him appealing. He was bullied as a kid and grew up to be a great man. A super man. He fights evil with integrity and is conflicted by inevitable choices he has to make. Now for the more superficial reasons. HE’S HAWT!!! Actually EVERY incarnation of Superman was an incredibly handsome man, but Henry Cavill, mmmmm…..
I have loved James Bond all of my life. Sean Connery… makes me swoon. Roger Moore… not so much. Pierce Brosnan… makes me double swoon. (Loved him in Remington Steele first!) AND THEN THERE’S DANIEL CRAIG. Holy shmoly, that man makes me swoon so hard, there’s no coming back from it. He’s got an edge to him that none of the other Bonds had. They gave Pierce Brosnan some tortured soul moments, but it’s Daniel Craig that gets all that and more- love, sex, suspense, and nine lives.
Just writing this section steals my breath away. Never in the history of reading have I ever been so moved, so pained, so desiring of wanting to meet this man and be his wife, and take care of him forever…. I’m sorry! I always get carried away when I think of Acheron, the penultimate tortured soul, deftly created and written by Sherrilyn Kenyon. As tortured as he is, he is the ultimate hero of the Dark Hunter series, in my opinion.
I could not end this post without including a hero of mine that brings me to my knees. Nathanael, Brethren Warrior, is as tortured a soul as they come. I love his inner battle with his demons and… Satan. I love his frustration with his boss, E.L. And I love how he surprises himself along the journey to healing. He makes me want to be there all the way with him. I believe the picture speaks for itself, as his physical attributes make my heart flutter and sends shivers across my skin.
