I love Italy and Italian men. The funny thing is, even the cab drivers over there can make my heart pitter patter. I don’t know what it is about the men over there, but they sure do grow them handsome and charming. I recently returned from another trip and things have not changed. The water taxi driver in Venice was pure inspiration for my next hero that I plan to write. If you get a chance to get over to Italy, be sure to be prepared for a feast of the eyes; everywhere you look is another handsome man. It’s a swoon-worthy trip!

My first published book featured an Italian man as the hero. Dario DeLuca is my ideal man: Italian, a count, and most importantly, a shoe designer- I mean, really, what woman wouldn’t want her man to be able to make shoes for her every outfit?

What nationality is your favorite for hot men?

  1. I’d have to agree with you – Italy! Italian men are just naturals at the art of love. I set my debut novel there, too!

  2. Monica, that’s awesome that you did the same!! They are definitely the best.

  3. Mixed ethnic backgrounds are yummy–something with native american in the mix is always nice. I prefer tans myself~

  4. My debut paranormal has an Italian vampire–great minds! 🙂 I do love Italians, but my favorite is probably a good old red-blooded American! 🙂 Fun post!

  8. Donna- Dark and Dangerous sounds like my kind of man!

  9. I was in Venice last October and never wanted to leave. I spent most of my days sightseeing by myself because everyone else was working. The men were always so quick to offer their help (I got lost in those narrow alleyways). Italian men have a confidence that is very attractive.

  12. Stacie. I love Benice. Such a wonderful walking town and so much beauty to see. And yes, the people are quite helpful.

  13. Robin. You must find s way to get there. Such beauty.

  24. I like an Italian man who can cook! The accent is a bonus as well.

  25. Na. Most def. One that can cook I love spaghetti carbonara. Find me one that can make that and I’m all his. Lol.

  26. John I haven’t been to Sicily yet. It’s on the list. I’ll check out the place you recommend.
