Feeling chatty?

Welcome to my blog! Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and read what's on my mind. I've a vicious sense of humor, an apprecation for romance and a mad addiction to writing.

I'm in Heat. Are You Really Surprised?

Yep, no doubt about it, I’m in heat! Just like a wolf. But how and when did I become this way? Well, pretty easy answer. The very moment I first saw Joe Manganiello on one of my all-time-favorite shows, True Blood.

Truth told, it’s bloody hard to shake me from finding anything/anyone in that series but vampires hot. After all, Eric the Viking vampire owns me, heart and soul.

At least he did.

I’d never been a huge werewolf fan. I liked them but the theory of a male werewolf hero never really attracted me like vamps did. Then I was sitting there one day watching True Blood, a few seasons in, and Sookie is suddenly saved by a guy. But not your average guy. Somehow this new character, played by Manganiello, had me sitting forward. Who the heck was this? The moment he walked on screen my eyes were glued. He was gruff, protective and quite frankly, hot as hell. Seriously, something about him really worked for me.

I can honestly say Manganiello gave me two things…

The first, he inspired me to write about my first werewolf in The Georgian Embrace (Coming February 29th). He showed me, hands down, that man plus wolf equals something beyond my wildest imagination. I finally ‘got’ the wolf craze! So even though my character is from Ireland, I took the sensual, rough masculine power that Manganiello offered and his protective qualities as inspiration. THIS was a real man! Though a beast he was still good. Something about that really grabbed me. Cursed plus honorable makes my ‘creative’ juices flow. *grins*

The second inspiration, Manganiello is one of the few males I’ve ever seen who absolutely, blow-my-mind-style turns me WAY on! I can’t look at this guy enough. He’s not classically handsome (which is my usual type) but damn, I drool over him. I keep trying to figure out the hold he has on me but can’t. But why fight it? There are worse things than being totally whipped by Joe Manganiello!

Learn more about Joe HERE. (He's a year younger than me and eight inches taller at 6'5. Oh yeah, I'd be a puddle of girly lap-luvin' delight if my jellied legs worked when I stood next to him. He's what I call yummy tall!)

I'm in total agreement with you, Sky on every point! He is the epitome of tall, dark and brooding! He is by far the sexist man I've ever seen!
