More drool-worthiness
Monday, November 2nd, 2009 Nov 2nd, 2009 leave a response

First up, there is a pre-order link on amazon already for “Kiss of the Rose’ isn’t that exciting? And even better news is that they’ve moved it up to August for release.

Not much text for you this week, but a few pictures instead. I think I mentioned that I rarely see pictures of my heroes, but I did luck out and find these ones of two real-life French Rugby playing brothers, Mauro and Mirco Bergamasco who remind me of the Harcourt twins, Gervase and Gideon, from Eden’s Pleasure and Antonia’s Bargain.


And then there’s this one of Mauro…
And in case you are wondering where on earth I got those pictures, they are both from the official French Rugby calender, Dieux De Stade-Gods of the Stadium.

And while you’re clearing your throats and fanning yourselves over those images, (and ordering the calender) let’s talk about facial hair on men. I must admit that I quite like a nice goatee on a man, but a lot of women don’t. As I’m writing a Tudor hero in an era when almost everyone had a beard. I had to go and find some inspiration. And, boy did I find some 🙂

“The Tudors” on Showtime were quite helpful.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers
ChristopherHenry VIII

and Henry Cavill

henry cavill

and from the movie ‘Elizabeth’ Clive Owen as Sir Walter Raleigh

Then there is my next cover for “Some like it Rough”

Are you convinced yet? 😉

    What can I say? I nearly broke my mouse clicking over here… 😉

    If any of y’all would like copies of the DDS “making of videos” for your PC – so you can watch ’em, you know, whenever – just let me know.

    (I’ve got all of ’em, Kate. Just so you know…)

    Wow… I’m not much for Frenchmen but those Rugby players are HAWT!!!!

    Brothers you say. Whew… are you sure??? My fantasies are running WAY wild there with those two.

    I think this post should come with a warning!

      ‘technically’ I believe the brothers are Italian but they play rugby in France-but yes, they are indeed brothers -happy sigh
