My Favorite Quality in a Hero
Skin Deep’s Connor O’Reilly is one of those heroes that truly melt my heart. There’s a lot to like about him. At first, I wasn’t even sure why he had such an impact on me, just that he’s sweet, sexy, and werewolf. Those are all fantastic aspects of who he is, but what really got me going about him? I’m not going to lie. The fact he’s a werewolf added bonus points, but I absolutely love his rock-solid commitment to getting Angelique back in his life. Not only does he want her, but he wants her bad enough to put himself at risk.
*fans self* Woo, that’s hot! For someone to be that dedicated is awe-inspiring and romantic. He’s really putting himself out there for her in the attempt to win her back.
Yes, there other equally important traits required for a relationship. Maybe one of the reasons why his commitment is key to bringing them together is the fact they’re already head-over-heels in love, but Angelique’s reasoning to not put either of them in jeopardy wins out since she doesn’t realize that he’s more than capable of taking care of himself.
Thinking about this a little harder, the heroes I tend to enjoy more than others share this dedicated trait in some form or the other. For example, Pritkin from the Cassie Palmer series by Karen Chance is dedicated to Cassie. He is by her side protecting her, and teaching her to protect herself, as she fulfills her role of Pythia. I’ll be the first to admit that I have a fangirl crush on him!
