Books about ‘sexy single dads’ are leaving women hot under the collar
    2017-June-26  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Publishers are reporting a surge in demand among British fiction fans for tales of “hot single dads.”

Mills&Boon first spotted the trend earlier this year, pointing out that steamy novels about “hot daddies” are setting pulses racing among romantic fiction readers — and flying off the shelves.

The imprint’s publishing house HarperCollins has suggested the new trend is down to women’s desire for “real and relatable heroes.”

The romance novel industry is big business in the United Kingdom — with some 10.7 million regular readers — and experts believe the uptick in interest in single fathers could have been fueled by women’s attraction to men with “emotional maturity” and fully-fledged parenting skills.

A spokesperson for Mills&Boon said, “There are so many different kinds of romance heroes, but single dads have a nurturing and caring element that is very appealing.

“The current popularity of the single dad trend definitely has some caring family men, but readers are appreciating these dad heroes in a new sexier light — from ‘cute father’ to ‘hot daddy’ if you will.”

HarperCollins just rolled out a bundle of six hot single dad stories for Father’s Day with an array of steamy plot twists and protagonists — including a hunky paramedic and a mysterious billionaire.

“Falling for the Single Dad” by Emily Forbes features a plastic surgeon returning from active duty in Afghanistan — who also happens to be a single parent.

Meanwhile, in Charlene Sands’ “The Billionaire’s Daddy Test,” a woman tries to honor her sister’s dying request to find the father of her baby girl — also a single father.

Mills&Boon Brand Marketing Director, Joanne Rose, added, “Our single dad stories certainly strike a chord with readers — the heroes are real and relatable, and often offer hope of a second chance at happily ever after.”

出版商报告称,书虫们对“性感单身爸爸”题材的小说需求量大增。

Mills&Boon公司在今年早些时候发现了这一趋势,指出关于“性感爸爸”的情色小说让言情小说读者心跳加速,而且十分畅销。

该公司的出版社HarperCollins指出,这一新潮流源于女性对“真实的让人产生共鸣的男主角”的渴望。

言情小说产业在英国是个大产业,拥有近1070万稳定读者,专家认为读者对单身爸爸的兴趣大增可能是因为女性被“情感成

熟”并在育儿方面训练有素的男性所吸引。

Mills&Boon公司的发言人说:“现在有太多不同类型的言情小说男主角,但是单身爸爸拥有的这种养育和关怀的元素非常具有吸引力。”

“当前流行的单身爸爸小说中肯定有暖心的居家男人,但是读者更喜欢这些单身爸爸性感的一面——或可爱或火辣,各种性感都有。”

HarperCollins出版社在父亲节刚刚推出了6本性感单身爸爸小说,里面既有跌宕起伏的成人情节,也有令人心神荡漾的男主角——包括一位英俊潇洒的伞兵军医和一位神秘的亿万富翁。

艾米莉•福布斯写的《情迷单身爸爸》描绘了一个从阿富汗服役归来的整形外科医生,同时也是一个单身爸爸。

而在沙琳•桑德斯的《亿万富翁的父亲测试》中,一个女人为了满足姐姐死前的请求,努力去寻找姐姐年幼女儿的父亲——也是一个单身爸爸。

Mills&Boon公司的品牌营销总监乔安妮•罗丝补充说:“我们的单身爸爸故事确实能让读者产生共鸣——男主角真实又深入人心,通常会给人花开二度的希望。”
