What does a romance author and her husband do late at night when their kids are in bed? Why, they sit next to each other on the couch with their laptops out doing work. :) This is in fact what me and my hubby are doing right this minute as I write this post. Except that before my hubby got out his laptop, he was reading a book, which I found to be a very odd but sexy sight.
I bet you’re wondering if he was reading one of my books, but alas, he’s not a romance reader. In fact, he’s not a reader at all. Which is why I was pleasantly surprised to see him with a paperback copy of Alistair Begg’s The Hand of God: Finding His Care in All Circumstances, in his hands, slowly turning the pages as he read. I also found my eyes lingering on this man whom I’ve known for the past twenty years. I can honestly say that my husband is more attractive today than the day we first crossed paths. Yes, he (and I) look and feel a lot older and more tired now, but he has grown so much more desirable with each passing year. Namely, he has the following three traits that I’ve come to find sexy in a man. :)
- He pursues God and His will.
- He leads his family with patience and compassion.
- He cares for those around him who are struggling.
I love that he was doing something out of his comfort zone so he can grow closer to the Lord and understand His will better. I even told him how sexy he looked while reading, which prompted him to crack open the book with a serious look on his face and pretend to read again. (Yes, I find his sense of humor attractive, too!) The younger me may have had different, more shallow ideas of what sexiness was, but the me today knows better. This is a good thing because being married to a sexy man helps me write male characters who are sexy, too. :)
I just finished writing the third book in my Spark Brothers series, and I must say that Colin Spark has all the makings of a sexy man. Over the course of the story, he proves time and time again how patient he is with the woman he loves and how much he wants to follow God’s leading. He’s not perfect by any means, but he is a man willing to learn and change and also someone who loves with words and deeds. I can’t wait for you to meet him (and Candy) come January 2019, but for now I’d like to share the cover reveal with you.
I just love the tender way Colin is looking at Candy in this image. That definitely says sexy to me! Tell me, what traits do you find sexy in a man? I look forward to reading your answers in the comments below!
I also want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Thanks so much for your support this year. See you in 2019!
