I have the pleasure today of hosting my friend and fellow author Amanda McIntyre on the book blitz for her new release THE DARK SEDUCTION OF MISS JANE. I had a chance to read an ARC and if you like dark, sexy and suspenseful, this book is for you!
So we’re lucky to have some Man Candy on the cover for THE CLAIMED and a lot of you have been asking who is the inspiration for the dark and very sexy Shadow Hunter hero Christopher Sombrosa.
I have to say the inspiration was a mix of two actors, Eddie Cibrian and D.J. Cotrona. This is a picture of Eddie looking rather dark and dangerous, just as I picture Christopher when he’s angry and ready to blast someone with one of his Hunter power orbs.
But Christopher also has a lighter side and for that boyish part of him, D.J. Cotrona was the inspiration. D.J. played a detective on the now cancelled Detroit 1-8-7. Shame since it was a fine show! But fans of D.J. will soon see him in GI JOE: RETALIATION with two other pieces of Man Candy, namely The Rock and Bruce Willis! Can’t wait.
So here’s a picture of DJ playing FLINT in the movie. Sexy! Hope you enjoyed today’s Man Candy Monday and another behind the scenes look at THE CLAIMED.

This morning I’m sharing with you a little of the inspiration for the hero in THE CLAIMED, although I won’t spill his name because I don’t want to spoil things for those of you who have not read THE LOST.
When I think of heroes, especially in a series, I try to mix up what they look like so that you guys won’t get bored of the same old same old. Adam was all light and the hero in THE CLAIMED is all darkness. I will tease you a little and just drop a hint that the hero in the third book, tentatively titled THE SHATTERED, is going to be what the British call “a ginger.” LOL!
Translation: red-haired. Strawberry-blondish to be more precise.
Which brings me to a question for you today: What do you like seeing in a hero? Do you like them blond or dark? Tattoos or clean? Lean or big?
Also have some other news today. I am doing a guest blog for my buddy Cynthia Eden who has a new release out titled BOUND IN DARKNESS. Visit at 1 pm Central Standard time and leave a comment for a chance to win a giveaway and to help raise money for a breast cancer charity. For the first 50 comments, I will donate $1 per comment to the charity.
Sorry to have missed the blog yesterday, but family matters called to me.
I hope you all had a nice day yesterday and also hope you will enjoy this combo day’s offering – a prequel story to SINS OF THE FLESH. The prequel features Mick Carrera and offers some enlightenment on what he does and the kind of man he is beneath his dark and dangerous exterior.
