Guest Post & Giveaway: Anne Calhoun

Hey, Baby…What’s Your Type? 
by Anne Calhoun 

Ty Hendricks, the hero in my latest release, UNCOMMON PLEASURE, is a very specific type of man. He’s a former Marine struggling under a terrible burden of guilt, a loner, working on oil rigs for thirty days at a stretch, then drinking and sleeping his way through the available female population when he’s not off-shore. He loves to dance, and bears more than a passing resemblance to Sawyer from Lost. He’s emotionally shut down, and he’s teetering on the edge of becoming exactly what he never, ever wanted to be.

Sean Winthrop, the other hero, is Ty’s mirror opposite. He’s a Naval Academy graduate with a brilliant military mind who’s on leave after a tour in Afghanistan. He got his twenty-two Marines home safely, and is solidly grounded in family and duty. He avoids dancing at all costs, and while he’s perfectly capable of handling the physical and mental demands inherent in being a grunt, he’s much more comfortable in the library. His only regret in life is breaking up with the woman he had a passionate, whirlwind affair with before he deployed.

Which one would you choose? Does the dark, tormented soul appeal to you, or the more cerebral, thoughtful geeky type? I’m a sucker for Sean, frankly, but so far reader response is coming down heavily in Ty’s favor. Comment with your favorite hero type to win a copy of UNCOMMON PLEASURE! 

This contest is closed. The winner is Kassandra.

Definately Sean! There's just something about the quiet ones, you know you're done for when they finally let go. ;) Regina

It's so easy to fall for both of them but I'm going to go with Sean because he likes libraries. Lot's of good ideas come from books! LOL!

I do love the brainy heroes, but I can't choose between Ty and Sean.

Not sure I could choose! I do tend to fall heavy for a tortured soul but the witty guys that can make me laugh get me too!

I do love brainy, beta types but every now and then I need a good tormented alpha ;)

I like the bad boys. They're always the most fun.

The bad boys are always tempting and usually more fun to read about... but IRL I would want someone like Sean. He's the total package. A hero without also being a fixer-upper!

Most of the time I go for the dark, tormented soul. Liking to watch the back story unfold! But every once and a while it is fun to read a lighter story!

I like a strong (both mentally and physically), intelligent, kind hero who listens to others.
