he term “cinnamon roll hero” has been tossed around Romancelandia for some time now. For those of you who don’t know, a cinnamon roll hero is a sweet, supportive, kind, and oh-so-sweet hero who is just too good for this world. (Like a really good cinnamon roll. Hence the name. Or a doughnut, really. Doughnuts are sweet and too good for this world. But I digress…) So, if you love alphahole jerkwads, this list isn’t for you. For the rest of you, enjoy!
NOTE: Now, on this list you might see some stealth cinnamon roll heroes. Those are heroes who can seem prickly and grumpy, but who are, at heart, sweet and supportive enough to still give you all the feels. So don’t email me and tell me I’ve confused my grumpy heroes with my cinnamon rolls. I’m no amateur! Plus, this is my list and no one is the boss of me, so there’s that...
What about y’all? Any cinnamon rolls you’d like to add to the list? Let us know! We’d love to hear from you!
