Destroying Those Old Stereotypes! by Jannine Gallant
There are certain stereotypes prevalent in romance. The Alpha hero and the heroine who needs to be saved is one of them. I like my heroes to be strong…don’t get me wrong. But I also want them to be sensitive and considerate and not total jerks. I recently saw a meme that spoke to me: Date eye candy but marry soul food. A man with substance should always win out over one who has only good looks going for him. What’s even better is a man who has both!
Which brings me to heroines. Nothing is worse than a heroine who is TSTL! You know the type, the feeble-minded young woman who goes into the creepy old house on the storm swept night…on Halloween! Honestly, she deserves what she gets, which is probably a serial killer who intends to hack her into little pieces if the hero doesn’t save her first. I want my heroines to have brains to go with their beauty. Why can’t the heroine be the one who saves the hero for a change?
All these thought were rolling around in my mind when I came up with the plot for WILDE HORSES, the final book in my BORN TO BE WILDE series. Eden is the youngest Wilde sibling, and like her brothers in the earlier books, she’s strong and confident and knows what she wants out of life. What she wants certainly isn’t a production company filming a movie on her family’s ranch. Blake Benedict is Hollywood’s premiere leading man whose name alone sells out movie theaters around the world. He has the looks and the charm, but there’s a whole lot more to Blake than eye candy. He has a personal tragedy in his life and a longing for something…and someone…who is real and true and unexpected. In short, he wants Eden. But someone may just kill him before he can convince her he’s also what she needs…unless Eden can save him first!
If you like books that are anything but stereotypical, give WILDE HORSES a try. I promise there are even more surprises you’ll never see coming…
The Wilde brothers may be attracted to all things fast and furious. But their spirited sister can’t be tamed when it comes to matters of the heart . . .
The beautiful vistas and peace and quiet on her family’s Wyoming ranch are a balm for Eden Wilde’s soul—and inspire a gentle touch when it comes to breaking the wild horses she loves. Though there’s no hope on the breathtaking horizon for her love life. Until her sanctuary is invaded by a movie studio shooting their latest blockbuster starring Hollywood’s man of the moment.
After a personal tragedy plays out in his real life, movie star Blake Benedict finds himself falling for the wide-open spaces and easy going pace of Wyoming—and for Eden. Around her, he feels safe shedding his public persona and letting down his guard. But then accidents begin to happen on set, mishaps that could end Blake’s career—or his life. And Eden will be forced out of her comfort zone to save the Hollywood hero from an enemy he never saw coming . . .
