Things Romance Heroes Love: Minions


Did I say minions?


I think I meant assistants. Yes, that’s better. An assistant is incredibly helpful when you are a working millionaire running a company, flying to the four corners of the world and attending all the functions for the non-profits you donate money to, and, of course, keeping track of your many dates. A good assistant is completely necessary.

Yes, I love this movie.

Yes, I love this movie.

Plus, is a good romance hero really supposed to type up his own notes or make his own phone calls? Having someone to filter the various people putting demands on your life is an incredibly important part of making sure you remain a little mysterious.

And how many heroes wind up dating their secretary? No time to go out and find the perfect date? Just hire someone.

All that said, if the romance hero isn’t looking for minions, I am most certainly taking applications.


What would you use your minion assistant for?

  1. Right now, if I had an assistant, I would have them cooking for me, doing housework, giving a massage to get rid of my headache. My hubby had surgery yesterday and we have to travel a long way for it. Lack of sleep, things taking longer than expected, stress, driving, etc., gave me a headache. My nursing hat is on and taking care of hubby, monitoring him as he does have medical problems and will be having more surgery in 3 weeks.

    In real work life, I am the assistant to the publisher plus author liaison. review coordinator and I do the monthly newsletter plus a lot of other things. I take care of the problems that arise when I can. Sometimes, the problem has to be taken care of by other staff. If I was the millionaire, I would treat my assistant with respect and encourage them to be the best they could be and not be afraid to tell me that there is something they couldn’t do. Having a great rapport and communication entails a great working team.

    • I hope your hubby gets better soon! It’s great that you are taking care of him, but I understand how taxing it can be on you.

      Yes, I always vote for treating everyone, but especially assistants with respect. They always have the inside scoop and ability to make things go easily (or not!) for you.

  2. I just have them do laundry, cook and do dishes. I can handle everything else. 😀

  3. Had to take hubby to the hospital last night as he spiked a high fever as infection has set in. So he’s being taken care of there and I am getting rest at home.

  4. Thank you for the good writeup. It in fact was a
    amusement account it. Look advanced to more added agreeable from you!
    By the way, how could we communicate?

  5. Usually I don’t learn article on blogs, however
    I would like to say that this write-up very
    forced me to try and do so! Your writing taste has been amazed me.
    Thank you, very great post.
