So I’m here today to share my guide for what makes the perfect supernatural hero. In order to do it for me, a supernatural hero must be:
- Stronger than human. Who wants a man with regular old strength, when you can get one with superhuman strength? This is especially so in the paranormal genre, where characters are generally up against badass villains and face larger-than-life situations.
- Faster than human. For the same reasons noted above.
- Willing to play by his own rules. Supernatural heroes are already outside the normal realm, so it stands to reason that the regular rules won’t apply to them. A supernatural hero lives by his own rules, and damn anyone who gets in the way of that.
- Able to use intellect when appropriate, but if not, okay with kicking some ass. There’s nothing sexier than an intelligent hero, one who doesn’t have to resort to violence in order to come out on top. But there are times when intellect alone won’t solve a problem. So a supernatural hero must be willing to get his hands dirty, if that’s what it takes.
- Sexy. This one’s a no-brainer. Just because a hero is supernatural doesn’t mean that grotesque is okay. Maybe he’s got horns or fangs or glowing red eyes, but if he does, they’ve got to look sexy on him.
- Full of humor, preferably of the wiseass variety. Because humor is so, so hawt. Give me a smartass with a repertoire of one-liners any day, baby!
My current release, MARK OF THE SYLPH (Book 2 in the Demons of Infernum series), features my ideal supernatural hero. Even though half-demon Taeg has glowing red eyes when unglamoured, the man is still sexy as sin. He’s also stronger and faster than humans and is accustomed to doing things his way. The man isn’t afraid to crack a joke, and he’d much rather do that than fight, but he’ll throw down if it comes to that.
GIVEAWAY: One eCopy of MARK OF THE SYLPH (Book 2 in the Demons of Infernum series) by Rosalie Lario
Librarian Maya Flores has a secret: she’s immune to magic and is well aware of the supernatural beings prowling the streets of New York City. Haunted by a brutal demon attack that took her family, she is on a one-woman mission to destroy the evil demons who did it—and any others who get in her way.
Maya is Taeg’s best hope for uncovering the sword. Unfortunately, she wants nothing more than to kill him. As he fights for her trust and to save his family, she is forced to face the truth that not all demons are evil. And the worst part? She might be falling in love with one, too.
