Wednesday’s Want, Wed, Waste: Wyatt Earps and Doc Holliday

The winner of the Amazon gift card is Stacey Greene….thank you for playing, Stacey and congratulations!

Hello and welcome to my version of the game, ‘F*@#’, Marry, Kill. This week we are WWW’ing two Wyatt Earps and Doc Holliday.

Giveaway!!! I am actually trying to learn how to use Rafflecopter, so I am doing a demo test run giveaway. Enter to win a $10 Amazon gift card! The prize is real, though, so be sure to enter. 🙂 There is more than one way to enter – One way is to answer the following question:

Which of these lines are from Tombstone and which from Wyatt Earp? (Answer T for Tombstone and W for Wyatt Earp – You should find a place to answer in the Raffletcopter box below) –

1) “All right, Clanton… you called down the thunder, well now you’ve got it! You see that?”

2) “I’m your huckleberry”

3) “I’m a woman, I like men. If that means I’m not “lady-like”, then I guess I’m just not a lady! At least I’m honest.”

4) “I know it’s not always easy being my friend, but I’ll be there when you need me.”

5) “Mister, I’ve been in a really bad mood for the last few years, so I’d appreciate it if you’d just leave me alone.”

6) “My mama always told me never put off till tomorrow people you can kill today.”

Please note: I could be doing this totally wrong, so bear with me. Whether or not the Rafflecopter/questions are done correctly, I will draw a name for the giveaway. 🙂

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of Liberty Divided Isle of Fangs Book 2 ~

WANT: Kilmer as Doc. I was mesmerized by the way he played this part. I love a bad boy, and he was sexy and funny and tough and amazing.

WED:  Russell as Wyatt. This is tough, because I like Costner better than Russell overall, but I didn’t see Wyatt Earp, and I did see Tombstone, and I LOVED this movie, loved Kurt Russell in is.

WASTE: Costner as Wyatt. Yikes…it’s like ripping out my own heart, vampire style, because I ADORE Costner. But, process of elimination, and I didn’t see him in the role, and someone’s gotta go…(rules are rules)…but I love you, Kevin!!! Please forgive me.

************************************************************

SILVER JAMES, author of SEASON OF THE WITCH, Website: http://www.silverjames.com

Want: Doc Holliday/Val Kilmer because he’s all dark, dangerous, intense…and intent. When I’m looking for a booty call, that works for me! A bad boy with sex appeal and no strings. (Though I really wish you’d offered up Virgil Earp in this version because…SAM ELLIOTT!)

Wed: Wyatt Earp/Kurt Russell because…dude! Kurt Russell! Oh, sorry. Wyatt Earp! But definitely Kurt’s version. Why? Because again, intense and focused. And loyal. He’s all about the family. If I’m going to wed someone, I want to know I can depend on him now and tomorrow and the day after. Besides, he looks awesome in a duster and that mustache. Just sayin’…

Waste: Wyatt Earp/Kevin Costner because I never could take Costner’s version seriously and I have to waste someone.

************************************************************

Author: Nancy Fraser and Patti Shenberger, authors of The Lawman’s Agreement  Website: www.nancyfraser.ca

Want: Kevin Costner. I have loved this absolutely sexy man since the movie No Way Out! That seduction scene in the back of the limo was fantastic, and often used as inspiration for writing a lovescene … especially the humor of it. Plus, he gets professional acting chops points for holding his own against James Earl Jones in Field of Dreams! His Wyatt Earp was well done and sexy!

Wed: Kurt Russell, despite the fact the he and Goldie have never made it legally official, he’s definitely “home and hearth” material. Plus, in his prime he had an edgy way about him. Loved his somewhat scruffy Wyatt Earp.

Waste: Val Kilmer. I’ve not really got anything AGAINST Val, just nothing for him either. I do have to admit, I was shocked to learn he has a fantastic singing voice. Saw him in the off-Broadway production of The Ten Commandments a number of years ago and was blown away with his rich voice.

************************************************************

Linda Carroll-Bradd, author of historical western, Dreams of Gold. Website: http://www.lindacarroll-bradd.com/

Want: Val Kilmer has a bad boy quality that shines through his portrayal of this fatally ill outlaw.

Wed: Since seeing his first kid roles in Disney movies, I’ve had a soft spot for Kurt Russell. In a western role, he makes my knees wobble.

Waste: If Kevin Costner would put in the time to learn the dialects of the roles he performs, he might be an actor I’d give more credibility.

************************************************************

Christine Elaine Black, author of A Rose for Lancaster  !!!Special price for November: 99 cents!!! Website/Blog http://christineelaineblack.blogspot.ca/

Want: Val Kilmer is a bad boy and his mischievous grin makes a girl want to wipe the smile off his face…. at least for a few hours. Definitely want some time alone to horse around with him dressed as Doc Holliday. 

Wed: Kurt Russell is the sweetest guy and pretty hot as Wyatt Earp. A little bit of Wild West with him and I’d be satisfied!!! 

Waste: I’ll pass on Kevin Costner, though he’s cute and it’s a shame to turn him down but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do when it comes to running a guy out of a saloon packed with hotties?

************************************************************

Now we’d like to hear from you….which of these Old West guys would you Want, Wed, and Waste?

Wednesday’s Want, Wed, Waste: Historical Fictional Characters

Hello and welcome to my version of the game, ‘F*@#’, Marry, Kill. This week we are WWW’ing Historical Fictional Characters.

Myself and some of my friends are sharing our Want, Wed, and Waste choices from this week’s list:

Robin Hood, Sir Lancelot, Zorro

********************************************

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of Liberty Divided Isle of Fangs Book 2 ~

Want: Zorro, because of all that mystery and danger. And because, in the above-linked scene, he was soooo sexy, it made me wish I was Catherine Zeta Jones! (Or wish that I was Antonio Banderas, she’s pretty hot too ;)) I was going to say I also want him because of how fast he moves, but then I realized that might not be a plus.

Wed:  I guess Sir Lancelot so I could live in a castle. With Robin Hood I would have to live in the woods. And Richard Gere as Sir Lancelot, come on…who could resist that? Although since Lancelot was stealing King Arthur’s woman, he might not be faithful. But on the other hand, I would be ‘Wanting’ Zorro, so I guess I wouldn’t exactly be faithful either.

Waste: Robin Hood, although that probably makes me a bad person since he steals from the rich to give to the poor. But if I was married to Sir Lancelot, I would be rich, so he might steal from me. So yeah, I would have to waste him. But if he looked like Russell Crowe, I would definitely do him first.

********************************************

Jannine Gallant, Author of We’ll Never Tell (Book One in the Secrets of Ravenswood Series) FREE on Kindle!!! Oct. 16-18.  Website: http://www.janninegallant.com/

WANT – Robin Hood. Defender of the downtrodden—and too gorgeous for words. You can haul me off on your horse any day!

WED – Has to be Sir Lancelot. Let’s face it—Guinevere caused him nothing but misery. Lancelot is a tragic character, and he needs the love of a good woman to turn his life around. I’m volunteering!

WASTE – Sorry, Zorro, but you lose. I just can’t be sure what’s behind the mask and cape. The others are a sure thing.

********************************************

Kathy L Wheeler, Author of Quotable Website: http://kathylwheeler.com

Want: Zorro – Antonio Banderas. When he focus his attention on his heroine (me), I am living a character in one of my own books. YUM.

Wed: Robin Hood – I’ll take Russell Crowe as Robin Hood. He’s scary enough to keep the bad guys away.

Waste: Sir Lancelot – I hate to say that Richard Gere is a waste, but compared to the other two… there’s really no choice.

********************************************

Christine Elaine Black, Author of A Rose for Lancaster Blog/Website:  http://christineelaineblack.blogspot.ca/ ~

Want: Zorro, of course. I love a hero who can wear a cape with style and the Latin lover accent is a complete turn on. I don’t mind the mustache or the color black, so all in all he’s a ‘stallion’ in my book.

Wed: Robin Hood. He does the right thing, stands for something legit and is faithful to his lady. He’s used to outdoor living and probably knows how to throw a mean BBQ supper, and there’s always a ready supply of ale. He can steal my heart anytime!

Waste: Lancelot. He’s the least romantic one for me. Other than fall for King Arthur’s wife I don’t recall anything memorable about him except for having the guys over and sitting a ’round’ the table (haha). Sorry, but it’s good ‘knight’ and goodbye for him.

********************************************

Silver James, author of THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC Website: http://www.silverjames.com ~

Want: Robin Hood. He looks good in tights and he’s good with a bow. That means strong hands and arms. But he has that whole “merry men” thing going on and hanging out with his buds. If the Sheriff of Nottingham came knocking, ol’ Rob would take off to create mischief. But that’s cool. He has a sense of honor and looks out for the poor but I think he’d want to hang with the Merry Men instead of staying home at night.

Wed: Zorro. Oh be still my heart. Sexy, Latin lover who likes to play at being someone else? There’s just something about a man in a mask… His love life would definitely be filled with spicy heat. He has a well-honed sense of duty and honor (are you sensing a theme here? LOL) and I bet he dances a mean tango, which is the dance of love. He might dash off to save someone but he’ll come right home, a rose in his teeth and a look of “I want you” in his eyes.

Waste: Sir Lancelot. Yeah, yeah. Knight of the Round Table, chivalrous and all that, but dude! She was married. So not cool in my book. Especially since her husband was his best friend. I don’t care how gorgeous he looks sitting on a charger, sword in hand, armor all shiny and stuff, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. And even though he sort of tried to redeem himself, it just doesn’t work for me.

********************************************

Darcy Flynn, author of  Keeper of My Heart Website: www.darcyflynnromances.com

Want: Robin Hood! He’s charming, romantic, and a thief with a roguish smile. A short-term adventure with him would be thrilling, but he certainly isn’t marriage material. Plus, I don’t want to live in a forest.

Waste: Sir Lancelot! At one time, I would have loved to marry him, but his affair with Guinevere ruined that dream. Any man, no matter how noble and honorable, if he commits adultery, he’s not the man for me.

Wed: Then there’s the engaging and mysterious Zorro! I want to marry this romantic, well-educated, wealthy and cultured nobleman! To be Mrs. Don Diego by day, all the while knowing his secret. Dressed in black, cape flowing behind him, wielding a sword…what can I say!  *Sigh* Did I mention he’s a superb athlete! 🙂
