Bond, James Bond

Many of you may know that the new James Bond movie comes out this Friday.  My husband is a huge Bond fan.  He has seen all the movies and read all of  the original books, which mean I have seen all the movies and read a few or the books.  The two of us will most likely go to the movie on Friday and that got me thinking.  In many respects James Bond is the ultimate romance Alpha Hero.  BUT I don't think he makes the grade, at least in terms of a romance.  Yes, he is physically strong, smart, handsome, the type of man other guys want to be like.  His big flaw though, at least I think, is that he never gives his heart to any woman.  Okay, serious fan may say that he did get married once in On Her Majesty's Secret Service and he did fall in love in Casino Royale, but for the most part he never trusts his heart to anyone.  In order to be a true romance Alpha Male I think this must happen. 

What are your thoughts on the subject?  Would James Bond make a good hero in a Romance Novel?
