Okay I have a confession to make. I’ve been a Bond fan since I was a young child. I read all the Ian Fleming novels and watched every movie — even the awful Timothy Dalton ones and dare I say, some of the really really awful Pierce Brosnan ones. (I forgive the latter since I fell in love with Brosnan in The Manions of America and of course, Remington Steele.)
I loved the suspense and spy stuff, but I think in the back of my head, I was hoping Bond would stop being a dog and find true love.
Anyway, when I heard they were looking for new Bond, I thought — tough shoes to fill. But dare I say this new Bond is . . . amazing. Absolutely hot and perfect for the role. What do you think?
I know he’s not pretty or perfect, but there’s something about his raw, craggy looks, pouty lower lip and those eyes . . . Not to mention this body coming out of the waters (which is a nod to the famous Ursula Andress scene in Dr. No.)
A bunch of writing deadlines kept me from seeing the movie when it was out, but I am rushing out to go buy the DVD so I can enjoy this guilty pleasure over and over again.
Also — I just got another review for BLOOD CALLS, the next book in THE CALLING series in May 2007. Here it is:
***** Author Caridad Piñeiro pumps so much life into all her characters that I almost believe they are real. Special Agent Diana Reyes, and her vampire lover, Ryder, are secondary characters in this Nocturne episode. (If you have not read their story, titled DEATH CALLS, you will still have no trouble with this book. Other secondary characters had their story told in previous titles too.) The main characters of this story, Diego and Ramona, are a perfect match for each other. I never felt the need to hit one of them on their head because of any sort of stupidity. They are both intelligent and realistic people, while also cautious when it comes to their hearts. Creating characters that I can actually care for is a special talent in authors, and therefore, I cannot recommend this title highly enough. *****
