SWEET THINGS HEROES DO
I only recently began celebrating Valentine’s Day with my husband after almost thirty tries. Most years he’s traveling for his job. He’ll be the first one to admit that he has to be reminded not to wait until the last minute to make plans. I learned very quickly in our relationship to appreciate the little things he did–when he did them. One surprise gift was a hand cut heart for my office with our initials that I’ll always treasure.
My Intrigue heroes have a difficult time doing special things for their heroines, too. Mainly because they’re normally on the run for their lives. But there are a few times I may have gotten their actions just right.
This is from Therese S.:
Brandie to Mitch in THE RANGER (West Texas Watchmen #3)
“I love you.” She closed her eyes and leaned her head on his shoulder. “Not just for everything you’ve done in the past couple of days. It happened months ago. After one of those long, protective looks you gave me standing in the doorway of the garage.”
This is from Linda B.:
Cord to his ex-wife Kate after they’ve just had to fight off and kill some of the guys sent to kill them in PROTECTING THEIR CHILD:
“Thing is, babe…” He took a knee next to the chair so he could see her downcast eyes. “I wouldn’t hesitate to protect you again. Not a second. Let another bastard try.”
swoon They’ve been broken up for months, they’re already divorced…and yet he’d still do anything to keep her safe.
This is from Brenda R.:
One of my favorites is when Jake rescues Bree’s handicapped pup and keeps Dallas for her in THE MARINE’S LAST DEFENSE:
“Kyle Wilder sent my pup, Dallas, with an officer when we landed at the airport. She could be at the pound for all I know. And that’s not going to happen. I’ll make my statement when you find my dog.”
I hope you can celebrate Valentine’s Day each time your significant other does something special for you.
