Welcome Shona Husk

I’m so pleased to welcome Shona Husk back to Book’d Out today. Shona Husk lives in Western Australia at the edge of the Indian Ocean. Blessed with a lively imagination she spent most of her childhood making up stories. As an adult she discovered romance novels and hasn’t looked back. Drawing on history and myth, she weaves new worlds and writes heroes who aren’t afraid to get hurt while falling in love. With stories ranging from sensual to scorching, she is published with Carina Press, Ellora’s Cave, Samhain Publishing and Sourcebooks.

Earlier today I post my review of For The Love of a Goblin Warrior , Shona’s newest release and the third in the Shadowlands series following on from The Goblin King and Kiss of a Goblin Prince.  This paranormal romance series features three Celtic heroes who were cursed by a druid into the Shadowlands and were forced to live a half existence for nearly 2000 years. Roan – of the Goblin King, Dai – the Goblin prince and finally Meryn,  – the Goblin warrior. Today Shona is talking about her top ten TV heroes and simply by recommending your own favourite hero, you can be in the running to win For the Love of a Goblin Warrior. Read on…

My Top 10 TV Heroes

I talk a lot about my books, the world building and the characters. Today I thought I’d write about some of the heroes I like to watch on TV—and not just because they are good looking.  Guys on TV can be super-hot and still bore me to tears if they are dull and predictable or the story just doesn’t grab me. In no particular order here are some of the guys I find fascinating/tough/dangerous/inspirational—in other words: hero material.

1. John Crichton (Farscape). He is a classic fish out of water after he sling shots himself into alien territory. He never gives up hope of getting home and keeps on fighting. Plus the aliens in this show are so cool.

2. Neal Caffrey (White Collar). A clever criminal, while not exactly a true hero I have to admire his cunning and dress sense. He’s always on the edge of the law even as he is helping the FBI.

3. Dean Winchester (Supernatural). He fights evil creatures, is weighed down by responsibility and the awful things he’s seen. Classic hero material.

4. Jim Shannon (Terra Nova). Okay so I saw him and went, ‘hello, dinosaurs and a cute guy this TV show is awesome’ (so of course it got canned). But a couple of episodes in it was his character that kept me watching. The way he reconnected with his family after being in prison and the way he started helping the colony.

5. The Doctor (Dr Who). He’s saved the world so many times, died and been regenerated (10 is still my favourite). He’s clever and willing to put himself on the line, and yet he carries a great wound.

6. Spartacus (Spartacus). He might have been captured and told he was a slave but he never believed it in his heart. He would do anything to get his wife back and when she died it was the beginning of the end. Any man who wants to take on the might of Rome is worthy of respect.

7. Scott (Strike Back). He’s a tricky one. On one hand he is comfortable in his own skin, he’s a bit of a smart ass, and is good at what he does. He’s also loyal to his partner Stonebridge. On the other hand he’ll sleep with any woman with a heartbeat. A bad boy waiting to be tamed, or a fun night out with no expectations of a phone call in the morning?

8. Mick St John (Moonlight). Tortured, Vampire hero. I don’t think I need to say more.

9. ?

10. ?

Okay so it was going to be ten but apparently I don’t watch enough TV. So who are your recommendations for spots nine and ten? Which heroes am I missing out on?

    Definitely Damon from The Vampire Diaries. Ian Somerhalder who plays his role is super swoony and Damon is a character filled with shades of grey.

    Special Agent Gibbs (Mark Harmon) from NCIS. Though if you go back far enough, I loved Solo and Kuryakin from the Man from U.N.C.L.E.

    I have to agree with Mary Preston – Sherlock Holmes. Especially Benedict Cumberbatch. He’s super intelligent (in a sexy way) and for some reason even his sarcasm and cutting humour makes him a hero I love to watch.

    For me it has to be Malcolm ‘Mal’ Reynolds from Firefly and Angel/Angelus from Buffy/Angel. Both are hot-hot -hot in such different ways.

    Loooove that The Doctor is on this list! Can’t really think of any others to add, except Buffy! She’s saved the world. A lot. But of course she’s not a guy.

    No one has mentioned Richard Castle, Surely he should rate a mention.
