This blog was one of my firsts but it got a lot of looksees back then. So I thought I'd give it a replay. I hope you enjoy it as much this time around.
men. I adore what makes them the way they are...their scent, their
thought pattern and I'll admit it, what they look like. And that
doesn't always mean if they are handsome, it just means there is
something special, something attractive to you. Nothing is better than
walking down the sidewalk and seeing one that sparks a bit of heat, that
shivering tingle we all long for.
The same thing happens when I choose my heroes. I can look at a thousand pictures yet only one will sit up and scream, "I'm for you."
And once I find him, he's mine forever. I'll take him into my world
and together we'll decide who he is and where he belongs.
was going to share some hotties with you anyway today, but I decided to
do something a little different. Why not introduce you to some of the
hotties who inspired those heroes in my books?
Let's start with the first book I ever submitted, The Mylari Chronicles: Eyes of Fire, later
released by Samhain. When I was writing him, I had a specific type in
mind for Calion, but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't see his
face. So, I decided to stop looking and find what I did know
Calion had to be built. Great abs
and an ass to die for. His arms needed to be hard and muscular...his
shoulders broad and strong. He had to have the type of body that a
woman would fall over in a faint if she saw him striding down the beach.
I found him. I was surfing on some dating sites and was bleary-eyed
staring at all the less than interesting guys. Then I clicked a link
and there he was. My gorgeous, hunky, Calion!!!
what I found really interesting was that you still can't really see his
face!!!! So readers who come and see what my inspirations are still can
use their imagination on what Calion looks like. Find out more about
Calion and his lady Talia by clicking HERE.
Another set of hotties who are reader favorites are the men of my Don't Series. Aidan, of Don't Spank the Vamp and Milcham, of Don't Tempt the Phoenix
are polar opposites. Aidan the vampire, tall and handsome with the
cool, dark looks of the moon at midnight. And Milcham, the legendary
Phoenix, whose golden, rugged good looks shine as bright as the noonday
inspiration came to me by a reader who was sending me handsome hunks
for the chat list. One look at him and I knew I'd found my vampire.
One whose blood lust wouldn't even come close to the passionate love
he'd have for the artistic lady who held his heart.
Milcham, the loyal, just and lonely hero of the second Don't book
I found as I was surfing. I was looking for a hunk for my newsletter
and the second I gazed on his brooding face, I was positive I'd found my
Put them both together and you have
two of the most gorgeous heroes ever to grace a series. But they aren't
only handsome, they have the type of Alpha personalities women sigh
over and most importantly, their women are the center of their world.
And Dawn and Aithne know it. Learn more about Aidan and Dawn and Milcham and Aithne. Just click on their names.
finally I have a character who has become a reader favorite, and he
doesn't even have his own book yet!!! He has been an integral part of my
most popular urban fantasy series, The Peacekeeper Journals soon to be re-released in 2013. *edited at this was newly posted*
Lucas, the roughly handsome werewolf whose loyalty and ready temper
make him an important part of Kira's company. Along with his five
"brothers", Gallegar, Danolas, Patrick, Benjamin and Koran, Lucas
protects the Peacekeeper as they keep the world safe from demonic
Readers seem to fall for Lucas because he is
the most passionate and protective of heroes. His silver eyes gleam
with love, and what woman wouldn't sigh over a man who'd do anything to
keep her safe and happy.
as you can see I have some great heroes. Different types, different
worlds and different adventures, yet all with one thing in common. They
make their ladies the center of their lives and what woman doesn't want
that in a hero?
And yes, they are all pretty
delicious, but don't blame me...blame my dreams. I guess if I'm going
to dream of a hero, I'm going to make him easy on the eyes! LOL
Hope you enjoyed meeting my hunky men. I'll be back next time with more fun things to share.
