Swoony Saturdays are your opportunity to be introduced to a book hero who fits high quality hero characteristics. (okay, so he just makes us weak in the knees for all kinds of reasons, but you get the point)
The photos involved are chosen as the most representative of the heroes featured, so IF they look like someone you’ve seen before, that’s almost entirely accidental.
Who? Christopher Wesley Harrison (Wes)
Where can we find this dreamboat? Just the Way You Are by Pepper Basham (release April 6, 2017)
Personality summary: Raised in a loving, high society English family, Wes had it all. When his talents for acting were recognized, his popularity exploded seemingly overnight, but a tragedy rocked his world, changed his perspective, and gave him a newfound appreciation for the things that matter most. However, it also increased his suspicion. He’s fiercely loyal to his family, a borderline introvert, and extremely tenderhearted, a truth he hides behind an aloof shield. His past mistakes haunt him, but he finds a hopeful second chance in heroine, Eisley Barrett. Her authenticity sets his assumptions on their heads, and once he falls for her…. wowzah!
What makes us swoon?
He has a British accent, seriously, that increases his swooniness indefinitely!
He looks like Henry Cavill (I could probably stop the list at this point, but let’s go on for fun).
He patiently woos the heroine.
He reads. (this is no small statement. A guy who reads??? Come on!)
Loves his family.
Great with kids.
Sense of humor (and isn’t afraid to laugh at himself)
Does dishes (and all the women sigh in appreciation)
His sincere heart
Kissing level of such swooniness: (see scale below) Wes has #5 potential without a doubt, but he keeps things at a simmering 4 most of the time unless closets are involved.
Basic hero type: (see hero list below) Wes is a solid mix between Mr. Darcy and Mr. Knightley. At first, he comes off as broody, but once he feels comfortable and trusts the heroine, he’s all kinds of chivalrous and breathtakingly sweet!

A little behind-the-scenes note – the character of Wes Harrison was inspired when watching an interview with actor Richard
The guy was just so gentle, funny, kind…and even used the word “Gosh”, my overactive imagination took a twist and thought “Hmm….what would an actor like Richard Armitage be like in a book AND what kind of woman would win his heart?”
