This one’s for you Gretchen!
You probably know him better as Strongfellow Hawke from Airwolf. That was such a great show! I remember falling in love with him when I was a kid when JMV was in a Disney movie titled The World’s Greatest Athlete. For some reason, I remember JMV running against a bunch of athletes from Villanova, my alma mater.
JMV was a total hottie in that All American kind of way. He definitely was the kind of tortured hero I love in Airwolf. JMV even had a female sidekick in this action-packed show. Unfortunately, it didn’t last very long on the air. Bummer.
I know I’ve had the surfer dude/All American hero in a number of books. Besides Peter Daly in TEMPTATION CALLS, there’s David Harris, Diana’s partner in THE CALLING series. Of course, there’s also Riley Evans from the CHICAS books. Oops, can’t forget Aidan Spaulding from MORE THAN A MISSION, one of my favorite books!
Yep, this kind of hero definitely appeals to me and I think to a lot of people.
Many of you have been writing and asking about David Harris in particular. I had hoped to do his story and romance with Maggie Gonzalez as a possible spin off to THE CALLING series, but right now that’s up in the air. I’ll keep you posted though.
Don’t forget to pop in tomorrow for my Celebration of Sisters contest. Remember you’ll need to know the name of the “Special Sister” from THE CALLING to post as an answer to tomorrow’s blog! You can click here for a clue.
