Introducing Brodie Harper–Hero of Brodie’s Bride

Welcome to my stop on the BOLD Blogapalooza Blog Hop Tour. Hang in there with me, there are are prizes to be won!

I’ve done a blog post before about why I love men, but the main reason is they are not women. (insert grin) Nothing irks me more than for the hero of a novel to talk like a heroine.

I know that the majority of these men are written by women. But, hey, we’re writers, and we should be able to not only make them sound masculine, but to make them sound heroic as well.

For those of you who don’t know, I’m married to a man’s man. DH drives a 4×4, carries a gun, says things like “hot damn” and “damn straight.” And there are few things my hubs would never say–

“I think we should…”

“Would you like to…”

“What do you think about…”

And I understand. It’s the price I pay for being married to an alpha male.

Today I want to introduce you to Brodie Harper, the hero from my debut novel Brodie’s Bride, and give you a list of 5 Things Brodie would never say.

1–“Why, yes, I’d love another shot of tequila.”

2– “I’m an ‘each man for himself’ kind of guy.”

3–“My mother should be nominated for Mom of the Year.”

4–“I feel more comfortable wearing a suit and tie.”

5–“Marrying Savanna was the biggest mistake I ever made.”

Yep, he’s the kind of guy who says things like, “hot damn” and “damn straight”. My favorite kind!

And today I’m going to give one lucky reader the chance to meet Brodie up close and personal. Just leave me a comment–tell me about your favorite kind of guy or just say hi– and your email address. I’m giving away an ecopy of Brodie’s Bride as well as a $20 Bath and Body Works gift card.

Thanks for stopping by. Lot’s of <3–Amie

    1. You’re very welcome. I like guys with a sense of humor, too. My husband’s hysterical, but he’s a cop so not everybody gets to see that side of him. Good luck and thanks for coming by! :)

  4. Ok I started a new wip today and totally missed this! Am I too late? I’ve been trying to win Brodie forEVER! and if I missed my chance I’ll go to bed and just cry myself to sleep. :( Brodie and your dh sound like my hubbs. lol

    My new hero is like that, alpha all the way baby- with a soft spot for the heroine. Love this post Amie (and I need more Java Dave’s :D)

    1. You’re just in time, Calisa–actually the contest ends Sunday night at midnight eastern. Yep, our hubs probably have a lot in common–Oklahoma boys through and through! Boomer Sooner!!

  5. I definitely love alpha men. Men who know what they want and go for it, but do not feel the need to hurt or disrespect others to make themselves feel better. manning_j2004 at yahoo dot com

  6. I love alpha males!! I would like to have the one with the rope:) Maybe I will ask my husband for him under my tree. Your book looks very good! Thanks for giveaway!!


  7. What I like in a guy is a good sense of humor, you need that these days to get through day to day life. Looks like a good book, enjoyed the pic! But really like the pics you had of Josh Duhamel :) thanks for the giveaway!

  8. I love the “pirate” in romance books, cowboys are okay but prefer them in historical romance books. but I also love the “Greek” men in contemporary romance books. Tall, dark and handsome :)

    1. You got it~ I’ve been looking for a blond headed hero pic for my new WIP, and I’m having a terrible time! Been lamenting the days of Paul Newman and Robert Redford. The latest is Matthew McConaughey. What happened to guys like that? I want ’em back!!!

  9. The comments are funny :), I like my hubby but since my hubby won’t see this comment that dude is pretty hot!
    Funny…thanks for the giveaway!

  10. My kind of guy would basically be the Gentle, Giant type, but sad to say, to me some men are nice to look at but they usually are the ones who are in love with themselves lol
