What Makes a Man “HOT”?

hot man, romanceOkay, let’s get right down to it – what is a hot man?

Many women reading this immediately flash on to a guy they, ahem, admire: Brad Pitt, Tom Brady, Bradley Cooper, Robert Downey Jr., George Clooney.

What do these guys have that earn them the status of HOT?

Or, to put it another way, which guys in your life would you call McSteamy or McDreamy?

With the help of my family photo album (full of spouse, son, brother, son-in-law, nephews, cousins), I’ve come up with 15 reasons a guy makes it in my “oh la la” considerations.

1. Romantic

As a writer of romantic suspense, I create men who embody these 15 characteristics. In my “hot” off-the-press, just released e-book, Twin Desires, main character Sandra must figure out who is the good guy, and who isn’t, in a thrilling story of intrigue, murder, mystery,  and romance.

The Sinclair twins may look alike, but one is “hot” in the best sense, one is not. Can Sandra figure out which one is her “McDreamy”? Download Twin Desires on your Kindle or Nook.  Remembering my 15 points of hot men, you may figure it out before Sandra does.
