December Joyathon 2013: Heather Long's 12 Romance Heroes of Christmas + #Giveaway (ebooks)

Heather Long gave us Captain Tightpants 2.0 in the form of Sam Kane (MARSHAL OF HEL DORADO). Then we found her Marines. And oh what sexy heroes they are. This holiday season she brought us more Marines with A MARINE OF PLENTY, A CANDLE FOR A MARINE, HAVE YOURSELF A MARINE CHRISTMAS and LEST OLD MARINES BE FORGOT.

Meet Heather:
National bestselling author, Heather Long, likes long walks in the park, science fiction, superheroes, Marines, and men who aren’t douche bags. Her books are filled with heroes and heroines tangled in romance as hot as Texas summertime. From paranormal historical westerns to contemporary military romance, Heather might switch genres, but one thing is true in all of her stories—her characters drive the books. When she’s not wrangling her menagerie of animals, she devotes her time to family and friends she considers family. She believes if you like your heroes so real you could lick the grit off their chest, and your heroines so likable, you’re sure you’ve been friends with women just like them, you’ll enjoy her worlds as much as she does.

Heather's 12 Romance Heroes

Woo hoo, can I just say thank you to you Kati and Jamie for inviting me to come and play. A little about me, I’m a schizophrenic writer which means I love to write in multiple genres—but at the end of the day, it’s always about the characters for me. I am probably best known for my Always a Marine (hot Marines) and Fevered Hearts (hot cowboys—hmm a trend maybe?) series, which you can see made it into my calendar choices below.

Kicking off in January, however, is a series I am really excited to share called Going Royal. The first book, Some Like It Royal, is available for pre-order and when I say these books were magic to write, I totally mean it. I hope you’ll check them out and before we look at my idea of a calendar perfect year—here’s to you and yours, wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a safe holiday season!

Funnily enough, I love mental casting, so making a calendar was a ton of fun. I took the time to go through this list and while some are not perfect for the roles physically, I think they can portray the attitude of these characters that I love so much.Needless to say, in certain cases I really hope we could see these guys in a film and playing these roles—particularly January, April, and July.

It’s The Role of a Lifetime…

Living out of a car and waiting tables to make ends meet is hardly the stuff of fairy tales. So when a gorgeous man approaches Alyx Dagmar with a wild story about her royal lineage and an even wilder proposition, the aspiring actress is sure he’s got the wrong woman.

Self-made billionaire Daniel Voldakov needs connections before he can expand his software business into Europe. A blue-blooded fiancĂ©e would open all the right doors—and Daniel’s certain he can tempt the pretty but penniless Princess Alyxandretta to accept the part she was born to play.

Alyx can’t resist Daniel’s offer, and throws herself into the role. But as the paparazzi fall in love with their “storybook romance,” Alyx finds herself drawn to Daniel in ways she’d never imagined. Are his returned affections true, or all just part of the plan? He’ll do anything it takes to prove his love, and to make her see that the only happily ever after he wants is with her…the real her.
