The Yummiest of Yums – Dishing up some Hottie Heroes by Tawny Weber

Magical Musings is pleased to welcome back the lovely Tawny Weber!

Tawny Weber Author Photo croppedI love heroes.  Alpha heroes, beta heroes.  Gammas are fine, too.  Like flavors of ice cream, I’m pretty sure there’s a delicious type that suits every taste.  Sort of like romances.  There’s contemporary and historical, there’s paranormal and suspense. There’s sweet and erotic.  It’s like an buffet.  To take the ice cream analogy a step further, it’s like being able to dish up a hero in a cone, or in sundae form. Maybe with sprinkles or a dollop (or three) of whipped cream.  Yum.

Not that it’s all about appearances.  We don’t eat ice cream only because it looks delicious, right? It’s all about what’s inside.  This is what I always think about when I’m writing a hero- what’s inside that makes him irresistible to the heroine?  What is it about him that sparks an addiction, so she can’t resist one more taste.   Even if she’s on a diet and thinks he’s going to go right to her thighs.

With that in mind, I’ve had such a fabulous time writing my Sexy SEAL heroes.  A SEAL’s Salvation, my latest SEAL, features Brody Lane, call sign Bad Ass. And he’s just that, a total bad boy.  For him, good girls are totally off limits.  Especially since the one time he gave into the temptation for a good girl ended up with him shanghaied into the Navy.  Now, almost a decade later, he’s back in town and just as determined to avoid Genna.  The problem is, they’ve both already had a taste.  Which makes resisting each other when they come together again almost impossible.

In the my previous story, A SEAL’s Surrender, Cade Sullivan’s call sign, Slick, is just as apt.  He’s the golden boy, the rescuer, a man with a plan.  One he’s determined to follow, even when everything is falling apart around him.   He uses the excuse of coming to the rescue once again—this time of the sweet girl next door—to avoid facing a decision.  In the end, that sweet girl next door, having gotten a taste of her favorite flavor of hottie hero, can’t get enough and totally turns the tables by rescuing him.

And now that I’ve thoroughly objectified men (how rude), here’s a peek at A SEAL’s Salvation.  It’s currently only .99 cents in digital (only until Saturday)!

“Look,” Brody said, taking a deep breath and hoping for some semblance of tact and diplomacy.  “This friendship thing, it was a mistake.”

Her eyes widened, surprise and hurt flashing. Then, with a sweep of her lashes, her expression changed.  Intensified.  It sent an itch down Brody’s spine. 

“We’re not going to be friends anymore?” she asked in a calm, friendly tone.  If it wasn’t for the fact that she was saying the right words, he’d have figured she hadn’t understood him. 

As soon as he nodded, she gave him a brilliant smile and tossed off her coat.  It hit the floor with a swoosh just as she reached behind her back.  The move was quickly accompanied by the sound of a zipper.  And Brody’s hiss. 

“What, exactly, do you think you’re doing?” he asked, hoping like hell it wasn’t what he thought she was doing.

“Seducing you.”


That’s what he’d been afraid of. 

Brody’s breath was a little labored, but he tried to reel in his reaction.  This wasn’t happening, he warned his dick.  No point getting ready for a party they weren’t gonna attend. 

His dick, always ready to party, ignored him and hardened rock-solid anyway. 

“Genna—” he started to say. 

But she interrupted before he could figure out the rest of his protest. 

“I figure this is part one of a two part solution to our problem,” she said.  “You were trying to pretend we’re just friends. Except we aren’t.  We might be building a friendship. But what we are is crazy attracted to each other.  So part one is to act on that attraction once and for all.  The total act, with you naked.  I’m willing to be on top if you’re still holding onto that friendship myth of yours.  That way you can tell yourself I took advantage.” 

So what’s your favorite flavor of hero?  Do you choose books based on hero types, or are you more a blurb or sub-genre type?

    Tawny, your first paragraph made me hungry; the second one made me laugh. Great excerpt, especially the last paragraph! Thanks for stopping by MM again! As for heroes, I like a variety. As long as the author brings him to life and shows me why the heroine should be with him, it works for me.

    • Tawny Weber says:

      LOL Thanks, Edie!!! I’m glad you liked! And thank you SO much for having me back on Magical Musings!! I do love a variety of heroes, too -but there are certain ones that I tend to revisit. Kinda like butter pecan or Moose Track Fudge. Ya just gotta have some of them again and again 😉

      You are so so right about the way the hero is written, though -he has to be ‘the only one’ for the heroine and make us believe he’s worth falling in love with.

    Hi Tawny! So glad you could share one of your SEALs with us today. Alphas are my favorite heroes for sure. Got my copy of A SEALs Surrender yesterday and already dived in. Very yummy!

      Hi Misty 😀

      Thank you SO much for having me today -I appreciate it. And woot, thank you even more for checking out A SEAL’s Surrender 😀 I hope you like Eden and Cade’s story. She’s my kind of heroine… a total klutz (okay, maybe that should read she’s like me LOL) Alpha heroes are great, aren’t they. Especially when bringing out their vulnerabilities (what? they say the don’t have any?)

    Hi Tawny – I have one of your SEAL books and need to read it and grab another one. I like all types, but the alpha guys get me all the time. Usually because I enjoy watching them fall the hardest. Thanks for sharing a bit about your guys! I look forward to reading about them. 🙂

      Hi Amy 😀

      Wow, thank you for picking up one of my SEAL’s 😀 I hope you enjoy it!!

      Yesssss!!! The Alphas totally fall the hardest and it’s so so fun to watch that trip 🙂 And there is something to be said for a heroine strong enough to start that fall -I think thats one of my favorite things about reading and writing alphas. Those are some strong heroines 😀

  4. Hi Tawny, welcome back to MM. I like to think of myself as open to variety 🙂 But I do have a soft spot for the hero who falls fast and hard, and spends his time bemused at his own behaviour 🙂

  5. Hi, Tawny! I usually chose books based on the blurbs, but there are some plots that I really enjoy, like a marriage of convenience story.
