5 unique things about JD
JD Ackerman is tall, dark and handsome, not to mention hotter than hell in cutoff swim shorts and nothing else. So are ninety percent of all heroes of erotic romances, the other ten percent of them having blond or red hair. So what makes JD unique?
He’s a good guy, one who deeply loved his submissive wife and stuck by her during her long, fatal illness. He’s not interested in another relationship—until he falls hard for Lanie, the estranged wife of a high-profile politician. For her he’s willing to abandon the low profile that has always been so important to him, even though by doing so he risks the sterling reputation he has built as a corporate attorney and the fabulous wealth he inherited. Not too many heroes would do that.
As for transparent qualities that immediately set JD apart from your average everyday hero, he played defensive end for University of Florida as an undergraduate and attended law school there, along with fellow partner Tony Landry and his wife Kristine (IN HIS OWN DEFENSE, Lawyers in Love series). His physical imperfection is a scar on his shoulder from surgery he had to correct the injury that ended his football playing days.
