A Hot New Man!

There's absolutely nothing in the world like finding a new hero to write about. He shows up when you least expect it, throws your life into immediate, addictive chaos, and expects you to drop everything for him.

I was watching some of my favorite shows over the last 2 days and a dark and brooding hero popped into my head (along with the actor I'd like to portray him in the movie!). I don't know much about him yet, only that he can't be pushed into one of the roles I already have for a hero. He is definitely his own man. As with anyone that demands his or her story be told, I will give this nameless hero three days to prove he's worthy of my time.

Something tells me I'm in for quite a ride between now and the weekend.

UPDATE WED MORNING: He and his heroine have first names. Shannon and Eric. I'm still giddy with all the possibilities. I've had a few ideas pop into my head, but they're too "good" for Eric. They're not dark and dangerous enough.

With that header I figured your lovelife had improved. Congrats on the new hero. They do seem to pop onto the scene unexpectedly and demand attention. Have fun with your new hottie!

Woo! I love me a pushy, demanding, knows-exactly-what-he-wants hero. Here's hoping he blazes through the three-day trial period.

Ah, Cat, I can only wish that were true!

Nicole, he's been giving me bits and pieces all day today and I'm excited to see where I can take him...or where he'll take me tonight.

Heh, heh, Penny has an Eric in her December release. Eric's can be bad, bad boys. You'll have lots of fun with him!

Yep, Cindy, he's starting to loosen up and talk to me a bit more now...oh, wait. He says I'm ready to listen to him now, that's why he's talking. Picky, picky.
