Thursday 3: A Man's Man

There's a popular meme called Thursday 13 in which every Thursday you make a list of thirteen things. I did this for a few months, but I don't have time for thirteen! So, I whittled it down to Thursday 3.

I recently sold my story Hostile Takeover to Liquid Silver Books. I'm very excited to have something new available there. It's a push-the-envelope type of book, quite a bit different from my usual light-hearted fare. The hero, Rockwell, is as alpha as they come, and if you've read my other stuff, that's unusual for me.

This is a picture of Clive Owen. I can easily see him playing the role of Rockwell--lean, sophisticated, dangerous (in more ways than one), and capable.

So here are three alpha traits for Rockwell:

1. He's more than willing to pound the hell out of another guy. Or two.

2. He's fiercely protective of his woman. If you hurt her, you're dead.

3. He is...extremely aggressive in bed. His libido is off the charts. If he sets his sights on you, like he did on Fiona, you may as well just sit back and enjoy, because he doesn't like taking no for an answer.

I'll always be partial to HT, in part because that's how we met and, thanks to your encouragement, it led to my attempting something in the genre.

It remains today a fine piece of work and a damn hot read. Nice to see it reaching a larger audience.

Karen, since I invented him, I do think he's hot.

Kaige and Robin, I'll be sure to post the details of the book's release when I get them. :D

Gaucho, it's actually a little different from the original. I had to tame it a little. LOL De-porn it, so to speak.
