#ManCandyMonday Henry Cavill

It was a tough choice this Man Candy Monday, but I hope you’ll like this diverse actor who has gone from playing in a period piece like Showtime’s THE TUDORS to slipping into the skin-tight suit for the new MAN OF STEEL Superman movie!

Guilty Pleasure Monday – Dean Cain

Years ago a very boyishly cute and totally sexy man hit the small screen in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman- Dean Cain!

I instantly fell in love with him as Superman/Clark Kent and the chemistry with him and Teri Hatcher was wonderful!

Dean grew up in California and excelled in sports. He attended Princeton University and after graduation, Dean was drafted by the Buffalo Bills. A knee injury during training camp, however, ended his career. After that Dean turned to screenwriting and commercials, eventually landing the role as Clark Kent/Superman.

Dean will be starring in a number of projects in 2011, so keep an eye out for him!

Guilty Pleasure Monday – Tom Welling

First of all, I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving weekend! I had a wonderful time seeing family and friends as well as getting in a ton of writing on the new books that are due soon.

There has been a lot of talk about who should be the choice for the new SUPERMAN movie that’s in the works and for me, there is only one choice: Tom Welling.

He’s handsome and nicely built. He plays Superman in the SMALLVILLE series and it only seems about time that he be allowed to grow up and become the adult Superman. He’s perfect for the role.

How do you feel about a possible new Superman movie? Any thoughts on who you would like to fill the shoes of the super hero?

Thursday 13 – Kick Butt Heriones to Love

The women in today’s paranormal, suspense and urban fantasy books, movies and television shows are not the heroines of old. They are empowered, know how kick immortal ass and are capable of saving themselves. It’s why I love them and today, I’m sharing 13 of those top heroines from my favorite works (or at least I’m hoping to reach 13. If I can’t, I hope you’ll join in with your favorites).

    1. Buffy Summers. What can I say other than that this character turned female empowerment on its head by proving women were capable of saving the world while still being feminine.

    2. Eve Dallas. Tortured, strong, honorable and with a loving heart that grows with each IN DEATH story, J.D. Robb’s Eve is the ultimate powerful heroine.

    3. Selene from Underworld. Kate Beckinsale totally rocked this role. I could watch the movie and its sequel over and over and over again.

    4. Anita Blake. Some readers think Hamilton’s character went south with CERULEAN SINS, but early Anita is pure gold and not to be missed.

    5. Rachel Morgan. This uber-witch from Kim Harrison’s Witch series touches your heart with your vulnerability, but raises you up with her desire to protect those whom she loves.

    6. Paige Winterbourne. Kelley Armstrong’s heroine from the Magic series is a wonderful character trying to cope with being thrust into a role she hadn’t imagined for herself.

    7. Gracie Hart. What can I say about Bullock’s interpretation of an FBI Agent who is totally not in touch with all things feminine. The transformation of this character is a must-see.

    8. Anna Valerious. Kate Beckinsale makes the list again with this empowered female from the 2004 movie VAN HELSING. Tough and yet vulnerable, she has you rooting for a happily-ever-after with the always gorgeous Hugh Jackman in the role of Van Helsing.

    9. Hermione Granger. Yep, you read that right. This pint-sized heroine packs enough brain power and magic to keep the men in tow.

    10. Lara Croft. Wow, what can I say. Action, adventure and Angelina. Not to mention both Daniel Craig and Gerard Butler as potential love interests. Too yummy for words.

    11. Wonder Woman. Lynda Carter brought class, sass and beauty to this role on the small screen. Filling her shoes in a movie version will be a hard act to follow. Could explain why so far this movie franchise can’t seem to get off the ground.

    12. Supergirl. What can I say? I wish Superman’s little sister didn’t live in his shadow so much. Maybe she needed her own identity? Think of Robin becoming Night Wing. And why not Superwoman and not girl? But regardless, she ranks up there with the top kick ass heroines.

    13. Catwoman. LOL! You thought I was going to say Batgirl didn’t you? Nope, this is one time that a villainess ranks up there, especially since in my hopefully romantic heart I kept on hoping for her to be redeemed and end up with Batman.

Hope you enjoyed today’s Thursday Thirteen. I welcome you to add any of your favorite kick ass heroines in the comments sections.
