As romance novel readers, we have our favorite genres - historical, contemporary or paranormal. Those are then split up into sub-genres that include inspirational, military, billionaires, NA, multicultural, suspense, sports, erotic, etc. The list in the world of romance is endless. Despite that lengthy list, they all have one thing in common. Yep - it's the hero we want to meet, or fall madly in love with time and time again. Every once in a while, there's a match made in heaven in a movie or on television who just needs to be immortalized on our bookshelves.
My two favorites - Dr. Henry McCord, former captain in the US Marines, now serving as a Theology Professor at Georgetown University in Washington DC, who just happens to be married to the Secretary of State in Madame Secretary on CBS. This handsome hunk is played by Tim Daly, and every time he smiles, speaks or even walks into a room, my knees get weak. This perfect hubby oozes charm, sexiness, wit and intelligence and he's a fantastic father. Henry is strong when he needs to be and sensitive without being wimpy. Ah...be still my fluttering heart.
Andre Johnson, the ad man played Anthony Anderson is married to an emergency room physician and is totally committed to his family in Blackish on ABC. "Dre" is a man's man used to the old school way of life, and while successful, doesn't mind telling his kids to get with the program. Not necessarily handsome in the traditional manner, there's still something wonderful about this tough teddy bear and his outrageous sense of humor that screams romance novel. Cuddling up with Andre after dinner and a hard day at work just makes me smile.
