Karen Rock and I shared a book birthday last week as FALLING FOR LEIGH and SOMEONE LIKE YOU released Sept 1, and well, if you happened to catch Karen and I fighting with our Animal Fighter Pens at the Harlequin book signing at RWA this year, then you know we can get pretty competitive lol;)
So, we thought we would put our heroes to the test this week in a hero mash up! Good luck choosing between these two adorable men...even though Karen did cheat. I mean, Channing Tatum-not fair:)
Bring on the eye candy...Inspiration, I meant inspiration...
Hero # 1-
Name: Niall Walsh
Occupation: Afghanistan Veteran and Start-Up Company/Technology Entrepreneur
Height: 6 foot 2
Build: Muscular. 185 lbs.
Hair: Dark Brown
Does a great impression of "Beast" when reading "Beauty and the Beast" to kids.
Is a 3x black belt in Tae Kwan Do .
Wears a prosthetic as he lost his left calf in Afghanistan.
Can write software code to design apps.
Was a Signal Combat officer with the Army in Afghanistan.
Has a dark secret he must keep from Kayleigh because it's classified.
And as if he wasn't dreamy enough, check out a quote from Niall in SOMEONE LIKE YOU:
"I see you when I close my eyes," he murmured, touching his forehead to hers. "I can't stop thinking about you, wondering where you are and what you're doing. Things in my past made me closed off. You were right about that. But I'm not anymore. My heart is open, and it belongs to you."
Hero # 2
Name: Logan Walters
Hair Color: Dark Brown
Eye Color: Brown
A New York Times Bestselling Mystery Author
Is a wonderful father for his daughter, who he is fighting for custody of.
Can sometimes come across a grouchy, but it's only the writer's block.
Would do anything to be with Leigh, but she has a secret standing in the way of a possible future together.
Hot, right? :)
And here is one of my favorite quotes from Logan:
"When I got here, I couldn't wait to finish this book and get on with my life...then you and that ladder changed everything. Now this court case just got even more important to win so I can keep Amelia (his daughter) and make a home with her here."
So, we would love to hear your thoughts on our heroes. And make sure to check out Karen's Sunday post later this month for our Heroines going head to head.
One lucky commenter will win a copy of SOMEONE LIKE YOU and FALLING FOR LEIGH-either print or e-copy-winner's choice!
***Disclaimer-the real Harry Connick JR. and Channing Tatum are not included in the giveaway. Trust us, if we had these guys, we would not be giving them away lol:)
