Who’s Hotter? Vikings or Cowboys?

My heroine has a problem. She’s been best friends with a cowboy since grade school and their relationship is getting those warm, fuzzy grown-up feels. The only problem? They’ve been friends since grade school.

Callie’s got another problem, too. A family moved into the haunted house next door and the oldest son, Liam, is … something. She’s irrationally, stupidly drawn to him, as if she’s known him forever, but they’ve barely met.

Don’t worry, she’ll figure all that out, but the handsome men in her life started me wondering….Who’s hotter? Cowboys or Vikings?

So, I did what any girl would do. I made lists! Let’s see if I can figure it out.

Cowboys:
1. Lean, sculpted bodies – hey, farm work isn’t easy, but it surely does pay
2. Tans – that much time in the sun caramels up the skin real pretty
3. Southern drawls – those slow, sexy southern drawls can give a girl the vapors.
4. Respect – Any cowboy worth his rope treats his woman like a precious stone, easily lost and in high demand. He’s no stranger to hard work and he’ll earn your keep.
5. Charm, bone-deep – and they know how to use it. They’ll make friends with your mama.

Vikings:
1. Fierce – these guys are born warriors, fearless fighters and unrelenting defenders
2. Honor – honor is everything to a Viking. They’d die (literally!) to maintain it
3. Warriors are nice to look at. Have you seen Thor?
4. Alpha male? Yes, please. –I think girl-swooning pheromones and testosterone seep directly from their pores.
5. Mystery – The Vikings in Prophecy are demigods, offspring of Bia, Kratos and Zelus, gods of force, strength and zeal. Who doesn’t love a demigod?

I know I left out a ton of reasons to love both - Vikings AND Cowboys. I wrote an entire novel about them and then wrote a sequel! LOL. One book wouldn’t contain their awesome. So, what do you think? Who do you choose? The Viking or the cowboy? What did I leave out that definitely belongs on the list?
