What Makes Single Dads So Darned Sexy? by Donna Fasano

08 Mar

Donna Fasano Author PictureFellow “Indie Chick” and bestselling romance author Donna Fasano has popped by today to chat about a phenomenon I’ve noticed myself, why men who have children are sexier than singletons.

Donna has been writing romance novels for over twenty years. Harlequin Books published her first book in 1999, and she went on to write 32 novels for the company under the pen name Donna Clayton. In 2010, Donna acquired the publishing rights to eleven of her novels. She’s been updating and expanding the books and is publishing them under her real name. Donna’s books have won awards and have made best-seller lists. Her books have sold over 3.5 million copies worldwide, and I feel extremely honoured to have her drop by and chat about her Single Dad’s Series.

So why are dads the new heart-throbs? Here’s Donna to explain…

Come on. You have to admit it. When you’re out at the mall or the playground, and you see a dad alone with his child, your heartstrings get a good, hard tug. You pause, your eyes follow him, you watch him smile down at his kid…and you get tingly all over.

What is it that makes bachelor dads so sexy?


You might be too young to remember the movie Three Men and a Baby, but when a man automatically picks up a crying baby, or races to rescue a toddler who’s fallen, or stops what he’s doing to comfort a child, a complicated chemical reaction takes place in a woman’s brain that makes her think … mmmm, now that’s sexy.

Let’s break it down:

A single dad who puts his kids needs before his own will, more than likely, put his woman’s needs before his own too. (Sexy!)

A single dad who raises happy, well-adjusted kids has proven he’s responsible, mature, and strong. (Sexy!)

A single dad who dedicates himself to his children has shown that he’s a good and caring provider, and the selfless love he exhibits shows he’s willing to sacrifice for his family. (Sexy!)

Raising kids takes patience, discipline, kindness, tenderness. (Sexy, sexy, sexy, and sexy!)

The simple answer would be human nature; procreation is a basic human instinct, and, as women, we are attracted to men who show signs of being good mates and excellent fathers. Now, that doesn’t mean we’re willing to “be fruitful and multiply” with the bachelor dads we meet…but is does help explain why seeing a father hug his baby makes us think, awwww, that’s so sweet…and sexy!

Donna’s offering an awesome box set of The Single Daddy Club series at the moment. So snap up these heart-warming romances. The first in the series is Derrick and the blurb is below.

The Single Dad:
Ex-military man Derrick Richmond. Solitary and satisfied…until little Timmy was dropped into his lap and Derrick had to learn to be somebody’s daddy.

The Single Woman:
Schoolteacher Anna Maxwell. Fate might have denied her a family of her own, but Anna still had plenty of love to give, if only someone would notice.

The Solution:
Anna would teach Derrick all he needed to know about kids. Father and son would give Anna some precious memories. Then the schoolteacher and the single dad would go their separate ways. Unless one little boy figured out a way to make Miss Maxwell become his mom!

    I know when I see a father with his child my immediate thought is the man is kind and loving. Two qualities I admire in any partner.

      Exactly TBM. Since we had our daughter, I love seeing my partner take the time out to do special things with her. At present, her favourite thing is climbing on dad’s shoulders and helping him feed the “doooggies” as she calls them. He has developed reserves of patience and sensitivity just through taking care of her. Fatherhood is such a special thing. And I love that Donna’s books appreciate that. I think modern society often takes fathers for granted, or assumes incompetence, but fathers are vitally important to children, male or female. And yes, fathers are sexy.

    Karin, thank you so much for having me!
    TBM, I agree…seeing a guy show special patience with a two-year-old just melts my heart every time!
