What is manspiration?
Manspiration is the inspiration for a romance novel hero. My first step to writing a medieval romance such as The Thief’s Countess is to pin the mansipration and the heroine he will eventually love, and all of my alpha male romance heroes have one thing in common- an extra dose of hotness. Having a visual representation of both the looks and personality of the hero springboard the process for me as I flush out the hero’s physical and personality traits.

How does one choose a new manspiration hero? The Border Series is a medieval romance series set along the 13th-century Anglo-Scottish border. As such, it may not come as a surprise that my heroes are all alpha-males. According to Wikepedia, “In studies of social animals, the highest ranking individual is sometimes designated as the alpha.” In romance, alpha males are large and in charge. Cue the Border Series boys.
