Australian men. I say they’re as hot as the outback sun on a summer’s day – and fellow Australian romance authors Amy Andrews, Margareta Osborn, and Victoria Purman all agree!
But what exactly is it about the men down under that makes our hearts race? We’ll tell you, but fair warning: hide your credit card if you don’t want to be booking flights to Australia by the end!
- Amy Andrews says… “Well now I think it’s a whole bunch of things – charm, charisma, that easy-come-easy-go, laid-back attitude, and let’s not forget those hot bodies kissed by the Aussie sun. But it’s the flipside as well. The hard-working, helping-out-a-neighbour, never-say-die toughness that gives Aussie men a backbone made of steel. Hmmm…how about I demonstrate? I always say a picture is worth a thousand words…”
- Margareta Osborn says… “As I’m a country girl, my area of hero expertise is of the cowboy kind of nature. And I can categorically assure you that our Aussie stockmen have some of the cutest Wrangler butts, the sexiest smiles and the cheekiest personalities you will find. Throw in bronzed and muscled chests, far-seeing eyes that crinkle at the edges against the sun, tanned forearms that are corded with muscle, strong, capable hands and a languous and laconic accent that can charm you out of your cowgirl boots in no time, and you have all the ingredients for one seriously hot hero. (And did I mention they also have awesome utes (trucks in the US), great taste in horses and usually a cute dog?)”
- Victoria Purman says…“Their sexy smiles. A sense of humour that says they don’t take themselves too seriously, which is so hot. And shoulders. Did I mention the shoulders?
In fact, I would argue that Aussie men are the sexiest in the world and I have evidence to prove my point. Check it out. When Hollywood needs a ruggedly handsome man to put on our big screens, who do they call? Yessiree, they call an Australian.
Like Hugh Jackman. Or Chris Hemsworth. Russell Crowe. Sam Worthington. Another Hemsworth – Liam. Alex O’Loughlin (Hawaii Five-O). Simon Baker. Ryan Kwanten. Sullivan Stapleton (look him up). Oh, must I go on?”
- As for me (and I’ll second everything the others have mentioned), I love the accent. I know, I speak it too, and don’t notice it most days. But every time I hear an Aussie accent on screen (the Hemsworth boys are a perfect example!) I melt. Our sun-touched lads also make good music – and that makes for sexy men! There are loads of talented male musicians here, and even more who just like to pull out the guitar on a lazy summer’s day. I’m into that. Very, very into that. I’ll also agree with Victoria on their sense of humour – Aussie men can be pretty darn cheeky ;-)
Is there anything about Australian men that appeal to you? Or any kind of men, for that matter! We’d love to know. Leave us a comment!
