#ManCandyMonday Henry Cavill & BE MINE Release Party & #Giveaway!

Today’s Man Candy is a guy who I can totally see playing Rafe from STAY THE NIGHT – Henry Cavill. I just watched him in IMMORTALS and boy is he sexy! Of course, I’m sure many of you have seen him in his many other roles from a stint on THE TUDORS to the commercially successful relaunch of the SUPERMAN movie franchise.

#ManCandyMonday “Is that a gun in your pocket?”

“Or are you just happy to see me?”

Love International StyleLOL, I just couldn’t resist. I’m bad, I know it. But so are today’s Man Candy Monday choices, Bad Boy Princes Alexander and Peter from THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE and TO CATCH A PRINCESS.

Why today? Well, it’s release day for the LOVE INTERNATIONAL STYLE, Valentine’s Anthology with my friends and fellow authors Cathy Perkins and Nikki Logan!

This romantic suspense anthology has an arsenal of action, suspense and romance and what a steal at only $3.79. That’s less than .99 cents per book!

But back to Man Candy! Here’s how I pictured Prince Alexander. Sexy, in command, and definitely not looking for any kind of romance, especially with a woman who thinks he may be involved in some nasty happenings at his casino.

Prince Alexander

Poor Alexander doesn’t know what hits him when he meets sexy FBI Agent Kathleen Martinez.

Prince Peter is a bad boy of a different kind. For years Peter has been running from his secrets, including the fact that he’s been hot for his best friend Alexander’s younger sister, Tatiana. But once he can own that, there’s just one little problem: Peter hasn’t told Tatiana that he’s the man her parents have arranged for her to marry.

Add a thief, stolen jewels and an assassination plot to the mix and Peter will have his hands full! Here’s what I pictured Peter would look like.

Prince Peter To Catch A Princess

So tell me? Could you resist those two pieces of Man Candy? LOL!

Speaking of Man Candy and Bad Boys, don’t forget the Lucky 7 Bad Boys Contemporary Romance Boxed set, also a steal at just .99 cents for 7 fabulous novels.

How I met my Valentine!

With it being Valentine’s Day, it seems like a good time to share with you how I met my Valentine and I’d love to hear from you how you met yours!

Here goes…

It was Freshman orientation and I noticed a young man in the group of new students all hanging out during orientation. We exchanged some conversation and names but then got dragged away with friends. Like teenagers do, once I got back to my dorm room, I plopped down with my friends to look through what was known as the Freshman Record to try and find the cute guy I had just met.

The Freshman Record was a kind of like a yearbook which had pictures and basic information about the incoming students. Luckily for me, it wasn’t hard to find the young man who had caught my eye. Also lucky for me, it turned out we had the same major and he was in most of my classes.

A couple of days later, I went to my biology class where the professor had put up a seating chart for the class. I checked it and found out that my little crush was sitting right in front of me in class.

But before I go on, please understand that I had very little experience with guys. I had spent most of my high school days involved with classes, playing the bassoon, and sports, not men. So unlike my kick ass heroines, I was not the kind to take charge and win the heart of the hero. I was not suave and saucy and boy did it show on that fateful day.

I took my seat in bio class and as my cutie came down the aisle, he sat down in the wrong row and chair. He turned around to say “Hi” and I said “Hi” back and proceeded to tell him he was sitting in the wrong place.

DUH! He was a little shocked, but then he grinned and went back to check the seating chart. A few seconds later he returned and sat right in front of me, still smiling. He clearly realized that I had checked him out.

Well, what can I say? I guess it was meant to be from that moment. He was cute and funny and smart and here we are, a long time later.

How did you meet your Valentine? If you haven’t met him/her yet, what would your perfect Valentine be like?

Here’s a picture of me and my Valentine!

Human Target Hottie Mark Valley & Contest

I have so gotten into HUMAN TARGET lately. It’s a perfect combination of action, adventure, quirky characters, dark comedy and sexual tension. The last few episodes with the developing romance with Elsa and Chance have been awesome! This is a show that’s on the bubble for Season 3 and I hope Fox decides to stick with it because it is really beginning to hit its groove. Not to mention that Chance, played by hottie Mark Valley, is a perfect alpha male action hero.

Don’t you think? He’s all cocky male, but with a real heart. Drop by the HUMAN TARGET website at Fox to watch some of the episodes if you haven’t already caught it.

Drop by Brigit’s Journals today where I’ll be blogging about what connections Aztecs have to Valentine’s Day and leave a comment for a chance to win some goodies.

Have a great Valentine’s Day!

Guilty Pleasure Monday – Andy Whitfield

Thanks to my sister-in-law Chelly for today’s Guilty Pleasure – Andy Whitfield. Andy is the star of the new STARZ Original Series SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND. Mind you, I’d been counting down to the start of this series since I’ve been a Roman history/Gladiator fan since I was a kid. That’s why on one Valentine’s Day years ago I dragged my husband to see GLADIATOR as my Valentine’s Day gift. Not that he complained since it was an awesome movie.

I didn’t know what to expect with Spartacus. I love Andy, but I’m still undecided on the 300-style special effects during the fight scenes. I think I would prefer real-action battles instead of the cartoony animation. Still, I’m sticking it out, going through the episodes I’ve DVR’d. In the meantime, I’m enjoying the sight of Andy, all sweaty and in leather.

How about you? Do you like these kinds of shows? If you’d like to download some Andy for yourself, you can visit this link:
