Hero Archetype – The Swashbuckler


According to Tami Cowden there are 8 main Hero Archetypes in Romantic Fiction.

I thought I would test this theory with a few examples, and today’s example is:

Hero Archetype 3: The Swashbuckler

The SWASHBUCKLER: Mr. Excitement, he’s an adventure. This guy is action, action, and more action. He’s physical and daring. Fearless, he’s a daredevil, or an explorer. He needs thrills and chills to keep him happy.
It almost makes me want to write an historical. Almost.
