Hero Spotlight of the Week: Wrath.

Okay, so the folks here at Sanctuary's Finest have decided that each week, we'll spotlight one of the heroes from our books, because we want to.

The hero that we're going to spotlight is some worthy hero from any book that we've read that we can't get enough of, a hero that we can't get out of our minds and a hero that totally steamed up our glasses and what not. Each week, a different staff member will spotlight whatever hero they're feeling and it'll just be a little something that we'll do to entertain ourselves and our readers as well...

Our first Hero of the Week Spotlight will be on: Wrath from J.R. Ward's Dark Lover.

Talk about total Alpha Male. Wrath is dominating, powerful and he's King.

One very sexy King to boot. He's not afraid to show his feelings, once his feelings are known to himself and it's uber sexy when a man is not afraid to show his true feelings for his love in front of everyone, because most alpha males are uncomfortable with public displays of affection, I found it very sexy and very appealing that Wrath didn't care who saw how much he loved his, shellan. I found it very sexy that Wrath wasn't ashamed to call Beth by the endearment that he uses for her in private, that he would call her his leelan, in front of all the brothers. It spoke volumes about his feelings for her and there's just nothing sexier than a powerful man who is man enough to own up to his feelings.

He is the last Pure bred vampire around and he's the King of all Vampires, nicknamed the Blind King because he's got poor vision but that doesn't take away from just how sexy this alpha vampire is...it enhances his sexuality if you ask me. His determination to protect Beth from anything and everything that would cause her harm is something that I find utterly fetching in a man and it gave me goose bumps to read about his love for Beth.

A discription of this fine hunky Vampire.

He was wearing a biker jacket in spite of the heat, and his long legs were covered in leather as well. He had steel-toed shitkicker boots on, and he moved like a predator.

Beth craned her neck to look up at his face.

God, he was gorgeous.

His jaw was a straight shot of bone, his lips full, the hollows under his cheeks casting heavy shadows. His hair was straight and black, falling to his shoulders from a widow's peak, and he had the shadow of a dark beard. The black sunglasses he wore, wraparounds that fit his carved face perfectly, made him look like a hit man.

Gosh, talk about gorgeous.

Here's a scene from his book, that made me love him so much more than I did before.

He began to get agitated, his pale, wild eyes imploring her.

"Shh, it's okay." She kissed his forehead. "Just calm down. We'll figure out what you need. We've got plenty of time."

His eyes fixated on their linked hands and came back to her face. Then his gaze locked on their hands and returned again.

"Me?" she whisperd. "You need me?"

He squeezed and wouldn't stop.

"Oh, Wrath...You have me. We're together love."

Tears poured out of him in a mad rush, his chest quaking from the sobs, his breathing jagged and raw.

She took his face in his hands, trying to soothe him. "It's all right. I'm not going anywhere. I'm not going to leave you. I promise you. Oh, love..."

Eventually, he relaxed a little. The tears slowed.

A croak came out of his mouth.

"What?" she leaned down.

"Wanted to...save you."

"You did. Wrath, you did save me."

His lips tembled. "Love. You."

She kissed him gently on the mouth. "I love you, too."


And then he closed his eyes from exhaustion.

Any man that can be that scared and that strong and possesive who can cry in front of his woman, because he thought he lost her and would have been desolate without her, is one sexy mother brother to me.

And that is why I've chosen Wrath as the Hero Spotlight of the Week.
