So, I've been reading Lora Leigh's Wizard Twins. They're older books, I know, but there are several of her older Ellora's Cave books that I don't have yet. Working my way through her backlist has been such fun. I'm going to hate when I'm caught up and will have to wait for each new release! LOL
Anyway, in "When Wizards Rule" the twins have blond hair. I'm finding as I read that I'm changing their hair to dark in my mind. LOL It got me curious if others do that as well. I don't know what it is, I just like dark hair on my heroes. In real life it doesn't matter. In fact, my husband has closely cropped gray hair and I love it. I can't imagine him with dark hair now. It'd seem too strange. Still, when I read, those sexy alpha males have jet black hair. Usually a little messy, not too long, just about collar length. It matters little what the author actually wrote, I just make up my own hair color as I read. LOL
Am I the only one who does this? Does it matter what color hair the hero has or do you just go with the flow? How big a deal is it to you, the reader? And what about red hair? Have you ever read a sexy hero with red hair? I really don't think I have. Why is that? And as for my own writing. I can't really recall ALL of my heroes at the moment, but they don't all have dark hair. In fact, in the WIP I recently finished the hero is bald.
Today only I'm running a contest. Why? Just because I felt like it. *grin* Answer the question below in the comments section and you're entered to win an ebook. The winner will get to choose from my list of current releases, which you can see here. The winner will be announced tomorrow right here!
Does it matter to you what color hair your heroes have?
