Dark and Delicious Heroes
Lexxie touched on some of the reasons why I like to read about them and watch them in movies. It's all about the attitude. They are smart, sometimes sophisticated, don't care what others think and basically do what they want to get what they want.
And if a bad boy sets his sights on a girl? Well, we know what comes next...fireworks.
Who doesn't like to watch fireworks?
Cain, from my book, Soul Stealer, is one of my greatest bad guys. He's sexy, smart, and a loner. As the General of the Death Squad, he is required to stand guard as a person's soul rips from their body. He is not supposed to feel for his victims or listen to silly begging for more time. He's heard and seen it all and nothing phases him.
Until the day he comes to kill Sara, a woman working against him to save lives.
Sara is the one person who gets to him and is the only woman he wishes he could spend more time with. Her goodness touches him and for a moment, he feels. A very bad thing for Death.
A good thing for love.
He will fight demons and all the Powers that Be for her, risking his own demise. Can Sara shred the hard case around his heart?
That's what I love to see--bad boys who have attitude but will let one woman in.
