Happy Tuesday! Today’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is ‘Reasons I Love … ‘ so I decided (with a little help from my book sisters) to talk about why I love heroes being featured on book covers. For many years in the genre I spend the most time in (Christian fiction), having a guy by himself on the cover was rare and almost taboo. I’m delighted to report that this trend has been changing in the last couple of years, giving plenty of hunky heroes their time to shine!
But… you know… instead of telling you why I love this fairly new trend, I think it would be better for me to show you. 😉

why do we love cowboy heroes so much? there’s something so swoony about their loyalty, their protectiveness, their work ethic, and their strength, isn’t there?
these heroes may be first responders or bodyguards or crime fighters, but they all have one thing in common – they rescue. our reasons for loving them are similar to why we love cowboys – loyalty, protectiveness, strength.
these heroes prove you don’t have to be a contemporary hero to be swoonworthy.
Whew. I could keep going but I don’t want to short-circuit anyone’s computer or smartphone screens 😉
What about you? Why do you love having heroes on book covers? Did I miss any of your faves?
