Favourite Types of Contemporary Romance Heroes

The Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge is hosted by Gone with the Words and Love at First Page. As part of the challenge they are setting a different topic every month that participants can choose to join in with which I think is a brilliant idea so you can expect a post like this to appear at random most months throughout the year.

The September Prompt is:
Favourite Types of Contemporary Romance Heroes

Medical Professionals:

  1. Forever and a Day - Jill Shalvis (Doctor)
  2. Hearts in Darkness - Laura Kaye (Paramedic)
  3. Animal Attraction - Jill Shalvis (Vet)
  4. Emergency Engagement - Samanthe Beck (Paramedic)

Builders / Mechanics:
(Guys who are good with their hands *wink wink*)

  1. Simply Irresistible - Jill Shalvis (Building Contractor)
  2. How to Misbehave - Ruthie Knox (Building Contractor)
  3. A Wild Ride - Vivian Arend (Mechanic)
  4. No Flowers Required - Cari Quinn (Handyman)
  5. BONUS BOOK: In Rides Trouble - Julie Ann Walker (This one is kind of a cheat since it's Romantic Suspense but it's really good & it's a whole series of hot ex-marines who are now undercover mechanics!)
Tattoo Artists:

  1. Wrecked - Shiloh Walker
  2. Hard as it Gets - Laura Kaye
  3. Echoes of Scotland Street - Samantha Young
  4. Sins & Needles - Karina Halle
  5. BONUS BOOK: Beyond Jealousy - Kit Rocha (Another cheat, this time for an extremely hot futuristic dystopian story with tattoo artist Ace who happens to be one of my top book boyfriends ever!)

Famous Heroes:

  1. Rock Hard - Nalini Singh (Rugby Player)
  2. Rock Addiction - Nalini Singh (Rock Star)
  3. Lick - Kylie Scott (Rock Star)

Do you have any recommendations for books that fit the above categories for me? Let me know if I've missed any of your favourites, I'm always happy to add more books to my ever growing to be read mountain LOL.

There were a million other tropes I could have included in this list - I love a geeky hero, I'm still partial to the odd billionaire & I definitely enjoy a Dominant alpha male - but I figured this list is already long enough! What are your favourite types of contemporary romance heroes?
