New Era Winter Classic
JS: And there's my hero who's nemesis is a tiny, nightmare Pug named Tank, nickname: the Antichrist (see Forever and a Day). Actually, I've used it in the opposite way, too. Big, strong, badass Alpha Male being brought down by a 5 pound wimpy dog named Twinkles. (See Animal Magnetism.)
JS: I do the same. My editor once asked if there was anything I wanted to talk about, seeing as I tend to kill off family members. Nope, I just like to kill people. Anyway, New Era Winter Classic moving on .
JS: You've been watching Criminal Minds again, haven't you?
KH: Have dog who will pee on your shoes. Call me. Jill, don't you love it when a hero is judged and found wanting by a dog or cat? I mean, really. How could I love a man who doesn't see how very special my beloved pooch is? I mean, Levi in The Best Man// won't even let Blue hump his leg! The cruelty!
JS: Because he's a poor, stupid man.
No. 1. Kill their family members
No. 5. Coitus Interruptus
KH: Yes! Once I had the guy's parents walk in. (The Next Best Thing) Sexy time SO not happening. Jill, I love this mean streak of yours! It's what first caught my eye, you stepping on that baby dolphin .
JS: I have used the stuck in a cabin thing myself. Nothing like a gorgeous setting, being snowed in, no electricity or heat so they're looking at each other by candlelight, and NO NOOKIE ALLOWED.
minute, I DID set off that fire alarm in the hotel .)
KH: Honestly. Why would he say that?
No. 2. Vow of Chastity
JS: I am good at this one, I LOVE getting the couple thinking that they're finally going to get some good monkey sex and then bam. Someone shows up. Calls. Nearly runs them over. You get my drift. (See every book I've ever written.)
JS: You've got a nice mean streak yourself. Remember that time we were plotting in Reno and you let the fire department think I set off that alarm in our hotel? (Oh, wait a New Era Hats
KH: The Untouchables, actually. Sorry, Jill, I got a little carried away. But you know, nothing says Tragic Hero like dead parents. I mean, if I lived in a romance novel, I'd be very worried about my parents, especially if I were the hero. Because, you know, I seem to have a propensity for killing them. (Don't tell my mother about this.)
No. 3. Confined Spaces
KH: I like to lock my men up in a 6 by 6 space with the heroine and let her loose on him. Except, once again, no sexy time, nuh uh. Nope, I like "We Are Forced to Share a Room/Bed/Prison Cell But We Cannot Do It." Maybe it's an elevator that gets stuck (see Until There Was You). Possibly a hospital exam room. The cellar. The coat room of a funeral home. Whatever the space, the smaller the better. But no nookie. That'd be so wrong . in a wonderful, "if this is wrong, I don't want to be right" kind of way, of course.

KH: Readers, please note how Jill can't think of anything I've done that's mean. Because I'm an angel.
No. 4. Man Hating Animals

torture their heroes
JS: I like the self imposed chastity best. You know, when the hero has been stupid enough to say out loud to a friend/heroine/the mirror that he will NOT SLEEP WITH HER, HE WILL NOT FALL IN LOVE. Poor, stupid man.
harmed in the making of this post.)
5 ways they New Era Montreal Canadiens
KH: I want him dead! I want his family dead!
KH: Oh, the endless nights of writhing on sweat soaked sheets . alone! That's right! Because we are NOT going to let our hero have sexy time with our heroine . not yet. We've forced him to take the dreaded Vow of Chastity. (By the way: Hottest guy on Game of Thrones? The virginal Jon Snow. Right?) No, our hero has told the heroine's brother/father/mother/Sister Vincent of the Crown of Thorns that he'd never go there. No matter how incredible she looks/smells/sounds/etc.
