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

WANT: Cameron Diaz. She’s hotttt, those gorgeous blue eyes, that perfect body…sexy! Plus, she’s a great actress, and she has a fantastic sense of humor. She’s adorable! Besides, she used to do Justin Timberlake, so it would be like I was doing him too!

WED:  Sandra Bullock. In spite of her horrible choice with Jesse James, I think she’d make a good wife. She’s wholesome and sweet and extremely successful, so she’d take good care of me. And, she’s extremely attractive.

WASTE: Angelina Jolie. This woman just pisses me off. She’s gorgeous, no doubt about that, and I love some of her movies, but I am not over her breaking up Brad and Jennifer. Plus, she’s just freakin’ weird!

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

M.J. Schiller, author of TAKEN BY STORM, website:  http://www.mjschillerauthor.blogspot.com/

Want: Cameron Diaz. At first I was going to say Angelina Jolie, ’cause she has that raw sex appeal, but I found another category that fit her better. Cameron Diaz is so cute. I wish I looked like her! Plus, I like her name. She seems upbeat and personable and she’d be someone fun to have a fling with, if I was a guy. But she’s been with a few too many partners to feel comfortable settling down with. Might be a red flag.

Wed: Sandra Bullock. She seems smart and doesn’t seem to be a drama queen like some movie stars. She’s pretty and seems to be fun. She actually has a lot of versatility as an actress. She plays the ditz well, (loved her in “While You Were Sleeping” with Bill Pullman), but can also play strong and sassy, (like in “The Blind Side”) or overbearing (“The Proposal”). With a promising acting career in front of her, she’d be a good provider.

Waste: Angelina Jolie.  She just seems to have a little too much crazy goin’ on!

Kathryn Freeman, author of Too Charming,  website:   http://kathrynfreeman.co.uk

Excuse me while I put my man brain in…

Want:  Angelina.  Those lips – enough said.  She’s bat crazy and her desire to have a rainbow of children puts me off marrying her so instead I’ll put her in her Lara Croft costume and drool.  A lot.

Wed:  Cameron.  Beautiful and, yes, a bit crazy too, but she looks fun and game for anything.  I don’t think she’d have a problem throwing on her jeans and joining me for a pint with the lads.  But put her in a sexy dress and male eyeballs will roll out of their sockets.  A hot babe who likes to laugh – that’s a keeper.

Waste:  Sandra.  Through my male eyes she’s not quite got what the others have.  Not stunning enough to want.  Not warm and sexy enough to wed.  With my female brain back in, she’s been quoted as saying if she hadn’t been an actress, she would have been a romantic novelist.  Sorry, there’s enough competition out there.

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

Linda Carroll-Bradd, author of contemporary western, Tie Down My Heart, website http://www.lindacarroll-bradd.com/

Want: Cameron Diaz, there’s a whole lot of attitude sizzling under that All-American exterior

Wed: Sandra Bullock, because she’s so much like the girl next door.

Waste: Angelina Jolie, although she might look sexy, her persona is too aloof, haughty

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

Charlotte Copper, author of Silver Blade  website http://www.charlottecopperauthor.com

WANT:  Angelina Jolie. She’s super hot (admittedly sometimes on the skinny side, but think Tomb Raider), but I wouldn’t want to become co-parent to all those children.  Then again, I forgot to ask…will Brad be coming with her?

WED:  Sandra Bullock. My husband is fully aware that Sandra is the one female out there that I would change teams for! I have pretty much all her movies – even the not so good one. And I was totally devastated when she didn’t end up with Ryan Reynolds.

WASTE: Cameron Diaz. I have never thought much of her (acting or otherwise), and I would certainly not be willing to change teams for her.

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

Jessica E. Subject, author of Never Gonna Desert You website http://jessicasubject.com

Want: Angelina Jolie – I’ve always thought she was pretty, but with all of her kids, I wouldn’t want something serious. Just a fling. And I know others don’t, but I do enjoy most of her films, especially the two Lara Croft movies.

Wed: Sandra Bullock – She seems so sweet and funny. An all aroud nice person. And I LOVE her movies.

Waste: Cameron Diaz – Sorry, but she does nothing for me. Some of her movies are funny, but I’m not lining up at the theatres for them, or anxious to rent them.

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

Thanks for playing!

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! 🙂

Now we’d like to hear from you….which of these Historical Fantasy Dudes would you Want, Wed, and Waste?
