Time For Some Man Candy!
Well, here I am, after Thanksgiving, still fighting the flu I've been fighting for a couple of week now. My head is stuffed up, my back aches, my nose is running like a spigot, and I'm coughing so much I sound like Sydney Greenstreet when I talk (yeah, my age is showing!). So I need a serious pick-me-up, and I know everyone loves pix of man candy, so today I'll give you a meal of flesh that will rival the turkey dinner you ate on Thanksgiving. I want to talk about television man candy and the men who influenced how I view my male characters in my books.
I'm not surprised the TV show "Hawaii Five-O" has become the big hit of the new season. In my conversations with the women who watch it, I suspect a big reason for its popularity is that it's chock full of gorgeous men. I know plenty of women, like myself, who are still upset over "Moonlight" being cancelled. I watched "Three Rivers", too, and I figured "Hawaii Five-O" would mean three times the charm for Alex O'Loughlin. And it worked. I can bask in the glory that is Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan, and Daniel Dae Kim every Monday night from now on. And I do. Has anyone else noticed the sexual chemistry between McGarrett and Dano? Those two bicker and banter like an old married couple. And Dano gets so jealous! My God, he has his eye on McGarrett and won't let him out of his sight!
When it comes to my fiction, I usually have a certain actor in mind for my characters. Here are a few examples to give you an idea where my thoughts head when I create the men in my stories.
An Unexpected Guest: The main love interest in this book is Jason, and it's rather hard to tell exactly where he's coming from. I imagined him as tall and slender, muscular without being macho, and his sense of humor is off-putting in a good way. He's my Beta-Male. When I created him, I imagined the way Jason Isaacs (one of my favorite actors) looked in the Harry Potter movies. My Jason certainly doesn't act like Lucius Malfoy, but he has the long blond hair and boyish features. I must admit that it was hard to find a picture of Malfoy where he wasn't scowling. Jason doesn't scowl.
Feral Heat: There are two delicious men in this one; bisexual werewolves named Grant and Sam. Grant is the serious and rather gloomy one. Sam is the more stable of the two. When it came to Grant, I pictured Hugh Jackman, particularly as Wolverine (no surprise there) and in "Australia". As for Sam, I pictured Orlando Bloom as Legolas Greenleaf in the "Lord Of The Rings" movies. Yup, it's that long blond hair/boyish features thing again. I see a trend.
I have two men in mind for my soon-to-be-released book "Indiscretions: Vol. 2 - The Mile High Club and Room Service". This book will be released in 2011, and it's a continuation of my "Indiscretions" series, beginning with Indiscretions: Vol 1 - Caught and Wild Child, which is a cougar series involving Kevin and his hot next door neighbor, Betsy. In Vol. 2, my heroine Caryn hooks up with Jeremy (my button-downed businessman) on a airplane flight in the first story, and later enjoys both Jeremy and her old love Takeshi in her hotel room in the second story. Here are the two men who influenced my look for both men in the book; Jeremy's inspiration on the top and Takeshi's on the bottom.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan (You know him as Sam and Dean's dad on "Supernatural".)
Sean Ching (He's just plain hot. )
I can't let the ladies feel left out so here are the two actresses who inspired my look for Lina and Charlotte in my f/f/f sexy adventure, Neighbors, which is appears in the "Vamps" lesbian anthology. Both women are dark, with long dark hair, muscular from years of scenic painting on movie and stage sets, and very exotic. I had Angelina Jolie in mind for Charlotte and Charlotte Lewis in mind for Lina. These two women are polar opposites who compliment each other beautifully, with Charlotte being the adventurous and chattering one, and Lina being the quiet but don't-be-fooled one.
Angelina Jolie (Like you don't know what she looks like.)
So now you know what kinds of men (and women) I had in mind for the characters in my stories. I do tend to like a certain "type", I suppose. Quiet but intense ... or light and cheeky. And I'm a sucker for slight but tall men with long blond hair and boyish features. So what kinds of men do you like in your reading and writing? Do you have a particular type that turns you on more than others?

Indiscretions Vol. 1: Nearly getting caught has never been so funny.
Mud Licker: So it's ugly. Doesn't mean it's not sexy.
Fountain of Youth: Be careful what you wish for.
Lost In Her Mouth: Two women. Popsicles. Use your imagination.
Feral Heat: Bisexual sexy male werewolves. 'Nuff said.
The Haunting Of The Sandpiper Inn: "Most Haunted" has nothing on this story.

BLURB FOR "VAMPS"
Seductive. Dangerous. Sexy. Girls with fangs, women who hunt vampires, lovers who only come in the dark of the night. Vamps are not just female vampires; they're femmes fatales. They're the women your mother warned you about, and the things that go bump in the night. They're beautiful and terrible, loving and disdainful.
Nine stories that range from historical to modern and from hard-boiled mystery to fantasy explore the world of the female vampire. They're strippers and goddesses, bluestockings and hippies, but they all have one thing in common. Lust. Lust for blood, and lust for life, or maybe unlife. All of the night stalkers in Vamps are ready and willing to find a good time.
Some of the best authors in lesbian erotica and romance are here, spinning tales about the dark world of creatures of the night, and about the women who love them, women who are drawn to the power and freedom that the vampire embodies. Vamps features stories from: Shanna Germain, Tracey Shellito, Teresa Noelle Roberts, Penelope Friday, JT Langdon, Erin O'Riordan, Mercy Loomis, Kate Cotoner, and Elizabeth Black. Vamp up your life a little today!
BLURB FOR "NEIGHBORS"
Conservative, staid Annie expected peace and quiet when she moved into the Calvert Street Apartments. Hoping to get some work done, since she worked from home, she set up her flat and her daily routine in her usual, boring, unsurprising way. Little did she know that her new neighbors, Angelina and Charlotte, would give her a run for her money in the excitement department. Angelina and Charlotte awakened Annie'smost secret lusts as they lured her out of her safety zone and into their fevered way of living.
EXCERPT FROM "NEIGHBORS"
It was dark when she heard clattering next door, and awakened on a couch. She couldn't remember where she was. Once she caught her equilibrium, she recalled watching sitcoms on television while lying on the couch in the living room and falling asleep during a blue jeans commercial. She thought of Lina's swinging legs encased in that napkin-sized remnant of denim, and felt her pussy go into melt-down.
She listened to the rustling in the next apartment. Charlotte and Lina had arrived home at nearly 3:30 am.
It appeared that her new neighbors had a guest. A male guest, judging from the baritone mingling with the familiar giggles.
They didn't waste any time. The noises quickly moved from the living room to the bedroom adjacent to Annie's bedroom.
She rose from the couch and stripped off her T-shirt, shorts, and underwear, dropping them in a heap on the floor as she walked into her bedroom. Nude, she lifted her nightgown from the end of the bed, and froze.
The bed in the apartment next door creaked. Baritone was fucking either Lina or Charlotte or both of them within a few feet from where Annie stood. Judging from the sound, that bed was positioned with one long side against the wall, just like Annie's bed. If that wall wasn't there, it would look like one, huge, king-sized bed.
She knelt on her mattress and touched the wall. It throbbed in time with the movement next door. Faint moaning drifted through the fake wood paneling. She pressed her torso against the wall. The throbbing pulsed through her breasts, coursed down her belly, and slammed into her groin. I'm getting warm just thinking about what they're doing. Could the mere sound of their sex turn me on? She felt her pussy heat up and swell, moist and tender. Her nipples hardened as she rubbed them against the rough wood. Knowing that this one thin wall separated them by mere inches excited her even more. I have to be very quiet. If I make any noise, they'll hear me through these thin walls. Her pussy pulsed in time with the thumping those hot bodies made as they pumped into each other. It tightened and cramped in search for anything big and thick to wrap itself around. She arched her back, feeling the thumping against the wall pound into her skin, through her belly, and into her warm pussy. She was so turned on she dug her fingernails into the paneling. Warm cream dribbled across her swollen lips, and slid down her right leg. She rubbed her nipples into the rough fake wood, and moaned. Soon, the creaking of the bedsprings increased to a crescendo. After a few deep and shrill ecstatic moans, all was still.
Annie hugged the wall in silence. Waves crashed against the beach outside her balcony, in time with her throbbing pussy. Sweat plastered her hair to her forehead. The strong pulse between her legs begged for relief. She lay on her back atop her sheets and blankets. Her fingers found the moist lips. She rubbed her juices on her thighs and belly. The smell was musky. Delicious. Her fingers parted her lips, and massaged until they reached her swollen clit. The slightest touch was like an electric shock. Her legs bucked with each wave of pleasure. Her breath caught in her lungs, which were so full they threatened to burst. Her heart banged against her ribs, begging to be set free. She pulled at her nipples until they hardened to the size of purple gum drops. She wished her neck was long enough that she could lower her head and suck on them.
