What makes us sizzle and squirm when a hunky man comes near? Is it his looks, or something more? Granted our heroes often sport to die for good looks with toned and strong muscled bodies, sculpted Adonis features. They also must exude a chemistry sex appeal that can send a heroine out of her mind.
Admittedly, a hero kind of sexy man is the ultimate boost to a libido. And I truly love my sexually charged characters that move heaven and earth to be together. That’s the fantasy. That’s what makes our stories good and I love it.
But let’s get real. In life, the romance hero type isn’t typical. Do we truly want him if he is? Usually, falling in love brings its own kind of chemistry to the table. Our lover is the ultimate for us even if he doesn't quite manage the pseudo hunky hero look we create and read about in our scorching romance stories.
Here’s the question. Can the scent of a man make you fall in love no matter what? Do sexy pheromones turn an ordinary man into a mysterious love creature? How much of a role does chemistry actually play in the initial attraction?
