Hero Archetype - The Charmer

The CHARMER: more than a gigolo, he creates fantasies.
He’s fun, irresistible, a smooth operator, yet not too responsible or dependable. He might be a playboy or a rogue, but he's doesn’t commit to a woman easily.

Susan Elizabeth Phillips has captured the Market with Dean Robillard in ‘Natural Born Charmer’ of course, but there are plenty of examples in her other books.

Janet Evanovich and Jenny Crusie tend to focus on Charmers too.

And of course that leaves the movies. Rufus, Hugh and perhaps Jude Law in Alfie and Closer? Bruce Willis? Leonardo di Caprio?
Rather a challenge to pin that man down into a committed long term relationship!

What's playing on my YouTube right now? Darren Hayes - I love his new album.
