Darkly Dreaming of a Devilish, Dashing Hero

I love my dark, tormented heroes. The kind that would never were a white hat or ride a white horse. The kind that not only rebels against the system, but snarls at it as well. Or makes sarcastic jokes about it. There are many heroes that fall in this category for me. Han Solo, I think was the first to capture my heart. Along the way many more have joined the anti-hero space pirate. Two of my favourites are Darryl Dixon and Dexter Morgan.



I know having the hots for a serial killer is kinda wrong, but how can you not be drawn to Dexter. He's intelligent, powerful, attentative, tenacious and passionate. Sure, that passion usually only comes out when he's killing someone, but that someone inevitably did something very very bad and deserves to be killed. So really, that's a plus for Dexter, yes? Besides, when you look into Dexter's eyes you can see there's a world of devilish naughtiness just waiting for the right woman to set free.



Darryl Dixon is a another matter all together. A man from the wrong side of the tracks, Darryl has become my favourite object of lust. So much so, I watched The Walking Dead last night petrified he might not make it to the end of the show. He's tough, doesn't waste words, looks utterly sexy scuffed up and dirty, rides the loudest bloody hog in a world where zombies are drawn to sound and knows how to fire a cross-bow with perfection. Added to that, he's caring. He tries to hide it, but he is. And that makes him all the more delicious to dream of.

I've written my own fair share of dark heroes. Tormented and skirting the boundaries of acceptable behaviour for a hero. I think, of them all, my favourite would have to be Raq Tornado from The Boundaries: Agent.



Raq is a haunted man. Noble by birth, he is the most highly trained killer in all the known quadrants. He's ruthless, cold and extremely efficient at achieving what he sets out to do. When Raq is assigned a target to terminate, that target's number is up. But Raq loves deeply. More deeply than anyone realises. He is willing to throw away his birthright and all the money and power that comes with it for the woman he falls in love with. So what happens when that woman almost has him killed? And what will he do to her when he finally catches her?

Agent: The Boundaries


Intel-Patrol Corp agent, Jaienna Ti has gone rogue. Now that she’s saved her sister from a life of sexual slavery at the hands of a cruel crime lord, she is fighting a battle of a different kind – one involving her heart and the brooding Boundary Guardian, Zeric Arctos. 

Zeric has his own battle. An ancient curse renders him a savage beast unlike any the Boundaries has seen before. Once only anger triggered the change, but now his driving hunger for Jaienna is threatening to set the werewolf free. And he doesn’t know if he can control it.

When the head of the Intel-Patrol Corp sends an agent out to retrieve Jaienna, the two face a threat more dangerous than any before. Raq Tornada. Violent, tenacious and deadly, Raq is an agent to fear. He’s also Jaienna’s ex-lover. And he has a score to settle with her.

The Outer Boundaries is a dangerous cesspool of sin, lust and depravity. 

And its about to get wild.

Warning: There's still lots of wild sex in space going on...but now there's also a significant amount of violence. And sarcasm. And wild sex in space. Did I mention the wild sex in space?
