Chicks You’d Turn For

6 Comments

I’m going to deviate a little from the Diva norm here today. We do love to talk about men here at the blog, and post pics, and write about them and…. Well, you know. Today I’m going to do the post my hubby has been secretly hoping I’ll do. He’s always trying to tell me I should write a ffm menage, or a ff love story. I think he has an ulterior motive.

I’m not planning anything like that at this point, and I am completely straight, for the record. But heck, chicks do rock. If I were ever in some kind of nuclear accident which rendered me suddenly gay (hey if there can be a spiderman, surely there can be a temporary lesbian superhero too), there are some women I think I’d be into. Here’s my top five:

Kate Winslet: I don’t know if it’s how she wears a purple hat in Titanic or the fact she can swear a blue streak and make it sound posh in that upper crust Brittish accent, or the fact she once sued a magazine for airburshing out her natural curves, but there’s something about Kate that I admire the hell out of.

Christina Hendricks: I discovered her while I was looking for pictures of pretty redheads to inspire my latest heroine. There’s something mesmerising about her eyes and the rest of her is pretty amazing too. Who’s her photographer? I want one picture of me where I look like that (And Kate, I might need the airbrush).

 Pink: Let’s face it, Pink rocks in every way. She’s talented, athletic (wish you could get abs like that without all the pesky crunches), rebellious and funny. She does things her way and has been phenomenally successful without compromising her own sense of style. As a bonus I love her music, and not many people can carry off a super short peroxide blonde cut like that (I know, I tried it years ago. On me? Ick).

Lauren Graham: I’ve always been a fan of the TV show The Gilmore Girls, in large part because of its lead actress. She’s gorgeous, funny, smart mouthed and energetic. Basically she just seems like the kind of person you could be best buds with the second you met her. It doesn’t hurt that any time she comes on the TV the Princess and Cherub exclaim excitedly about the woman who looks just like Mummy. Yep, juuuuussst like her. Gotta love that ego boost (as mistaken as their little eyes might be…)

Drew Barrymore: Child star turned wild child, Drew pulled herself out of an early drug problem and rebuilt herself using her looks and her brains. She’s smart, savvy, a great actress and a clever businesswoman. She comes across as warm and friendly and she’s got that whole cute/sexy combination down like no one else. Who doesn’t love Drew?

So there you go. If every man in the world suddenly looked like this to me:

those are the women I’d consider going the other way for. I’m sure they’d feel the same way about me, right?

5 Reasons Life is Not a Romance Novel

17 Comments

  1. Romance novel heroines don’t seem to have a monthly cycle. The only time the issue of a heroine’s period seems to arise is when she skips it. i.e. the super virile hero got her pregnant that time they used a condom but his man junk burst so forcefully from his member that it broke and voila! There’s a secret baby. The rest of the time h&hne are free to do the down and dirty.
  2. There’s no PMS in romance novels (see above). When the hero says “You’re beautiful” the lucky girl in question melts. She doesn’t say “Beautiful? You’re just saying that because you think I’m fat. You were perving on that woman, weren’t you? She’s beautiful. I’m a cow! How come you never buy me flowers anymore?”
  3. One night stands routinely lead to relationships in romance novels. Because every guy who picks up a stray woman in a bar immediately thinks “Hey man, she’s totally easy. I’m going to pull out all the stops to romance her and then introduce her to my mother.” If life were a romance novel, you could forget perfectmatch.com. Just head to the nearest bar, throw back a few margaritas and wait for the gorgeous undercover cops/millionaire CEOs/hunky race car drivers to come a-sniffing. You’d find a husband like that, guaranteed.
  4. In romance novels, your best friend is always a bigger slut than you (that’s quite a feat, given point No 3).
  5. Does anyone in real life get to say “Oh my God, I don’t think I can fit that all in!”

Waking up next to him after a drunken night out? Priceless.

Kisses and Giveaways

16 Comments

I’m doing a chat at the Samhain Cafe in, oh, about half an hour’s time and I am just now organising what I’m going to say. Sigh. Anything could happen over there so if you’re curious, bored or just plain into chatting about books, head on over there for some fun at 9pm US eastern time (11am for Australians).

 I have a few excerpts of my books’ first kiss scenes to offer up, and with that theme in mind I thought I’d post a few pics of some of my favorite movie kiss scenes (because it’s just too hard to post scenes from books, ya know).

I went to see Four Weddings and a Funeral with hubby on our first date, so this one always has sentimental value to me. Plus there’s always a lot of drama inherent in a kiss in the rain.

Who doesn’t love a man in uniform? Especially the whites… yummo.

Had to wait until the sequel for it... talk about tension!

 We had to wait until the sequel for it. Talk about tension!

“You should be kissed and kissed often–by someone who knows how!” Well sure Rhett, shouldn’t we all be???

You don’t see a lot of upside down kisses these days, so this is always worthy of note. What is so sexy about a masked man anyway?

If you want to go in the draw to win a copy or any of my backlist titles or a $10 gift certificate from My Bookstore and More (that’s two separate prizes) all you have to do is leave a comment here or at my blog. Vote for your favorite kiss or tell me the one you wish was on the list and you’ll go into the draw. It’s that simple.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sami
