Charlie Hunnam #ManCandyMonday #AttheShore

The hunt is still on for that guy who would be the perfect Jonathan Pierce from #2 in the At the Shore series – Suddenly Last Summer.

I think I’m really close with today’s Man Candy Choice – Charlie Hunnam. I can so picture him as bad boy rebel and genius Jonathan! He’s kind of got that surfer dude look which is perfect, but boy does he dress up nice!

I didn’t watch Sons of Anarchy, but since I love all things King Arthur, I’m going to watch him in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Hideo Muraoka Model #ManCandyMonday

You know, it really is a tough thing to find fresh and exciting new Man Candy for you every Monday. A tough job, but someone has to do it.

This morning, we’re going with someone different – male model Hideo Muraoka. Hideo is a fashion model and entrepreneur who is half Brazilian and half Japanese. He was on the Pinoy Big Brother series and has appeared in ads for several companies, including Versace.

Can we say hot, hot, hot? Wow. Thanks to Hideo’s Instagram for this photo! Feel free to visit Hideo’s website at http://www.stylehm.com/ to see more of Hideo and his beautiful family!

Good morning 😃💥💪💪👍 #tbt 😳📷 by @wongsim

Aaron Diaz & At The Shore #ManCandyMonday

Happy Man Candy Monday! I’ve started the timeline for #3 in the At the Shore series and am creating in my brain the image for Carlo Teixeira, the hero in #3. Carlo is of Portuguese descent and his family lives in the Ironbound section of Newark. He has a number of older brothers who run the Caminho bakery, but two younger brothers (who I hope to spin off into their own stories later!).

There are a number of Latin men who could fit the part of Carlo, the caterer extraordinaire, and he’s taking shape physically in my brain. As I was searching for assistance with this, a hard job but someone has to do it, I ran across sexy Aaron Diaz.

Aaron was born in Mexico on March 7. OMG, we share a birthday. How right is that?

Aaron has appeared in a number of telenovelas and also had a role in the short-lived PAN AM series on ABC and is now appearing on QUANTICO.

#ManCandyMonday Dark Hair or Blonde?

The two brothers in the At the Shore Contemporary Romance Series are very different physically and have very different personalities.

Owen Pierce, the hero of book #1, One Summer Night, is dark haired and dark charcoal eyes. Owen’s a by-the-book kind of guy who is married to his work and not looking to get involved. Especially not with the daughter of his father’s worst enemy. Of course, that’s just who he is going to fall in love which makes for an interesting Romeo and Juliet kind of tale.

Jonathan Pierce, the hero of book #3, tentatively titled The Goodbye Summer, has sun-streaked light brown hair and sky blue eyes. Jonathan is a rebel of sorts. A genius who marches to his own drummer and has left the love of his life behind because she’s just too uber-responsible and career-focused. Jonathan will have his hands full in more ways than one in this second chance at love story.

But now, for today’s Man Candy, dark hair or light? I decided to do both in this series with the two brothers, but which do you prefer?

This is how I pictured Owen when he does shuck off that suit and lets himself spend some fun time in Sea Kiss, the fictional Jersey Shore town from the series. I’ll share my thoughts (and pictured) of Jonathan soon!

By the way, don’t forget that you have until April 30 to enter the giveaway for an ARC of One Summer Night and a collection of Jersey Shore Goodies. Just add One Summer Night to your Goodreads Want to Read pile. Click here or use this link: http://bit.ly/2q6OzIc.
