Wednesday’s Want, Wed, Waste: TV Doctors

Hello and welcome to my version of the game, ‘F*@#’, Marry, Kill. This week we are WWW’ing doctors from TV shows.

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

Jack Shephard from Lost, Dr. House from House, Hawkeye from M*A*S*H

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

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of DEATH NOTICE – A killer is using her obituary column to forecast his kills. 

Want: Jack Shephard. Although he wasn’t as hot as Sawyer, I found him very, very sexy, and I actually wanted him and Kate together. I guess we don’t always get what we want, right?

Wed: Hawkeye, I suppose, although I never could get into MASH. But, I do love a sarcastic, wise cracking soldier/doctor. And, I thought it was pretty cool, the little bit I saw of it, when he and Hotlips sort of had a thing brewing. I like the whole love/hate thing.

Waste: Dr. House. I thought more people liked him than they do, but if I’m not mistaken, we all want to waste him. I couldn’t get into the show, didn’t find him attractive at all, although with his real British accent, he was a lot more do-able.  

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

Jannine Gallant, author of We’ll Never Tell, small town romantic suspense ON SALE now through Friday for only for .99¢!

Want: Dr. Jack Shephard—he’s hot in a guy next door sort of way. Okay, the one I really WANT from Lost is Sawyer. Oh baby! Dr. Jack is just the next best thing.

Wed: Hawkeye—what’s not to love? He was a great guy—sweet, funny, dedicated. Okay, maybe not the most handsome one in the bunch, but I refuse to waste Hawkeye!

Waste: House—the guy’s a jerk. Leaves me cold. Enough said.

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

M.J. Schiller, author of THE HEART TEACHES BEST Murder could be her final lesson.  – Website: www.mjschillerauthor.blogspot.com

M.J. is giving away a free ebook of The Heart Teaches Best to one lucky commenter!

Want: Dr. Jack Shephard, Matthew Fox is a hottie! (But to be honest, I’d rather have Sawyer from Lost ~ he’s got that whole bad boy thing going for him!)

Wed: Hawkeye. He’d just be so much fun to hang with! 

Waste: House, he’s just too dark for me. I’m not big on heavy sarcasm. Light sarcasm I can do, but don’t want it edgy.

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

Diane Burton, author of ONE RED SHOE  Wannabe writer rescues wounded spy while risking her heart. Website:  www.dianeburton.com

Want & Wed: Dr. Jack Shephard. Hot. Take charge guy, dependable.

Waste: Both House & Hawkeye. House. He is so sarcastic. His dependence on pain killers is understandable, but not his method of getting them. Hawkeye: too little boy cute; practical joker (which isn’t all that bad). I just can’t see wanting or wedding him.

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

SILVER JAMES, author of BLOOD MOON – MOONSTRUCK 1 (Warning: Pursue an alpha Wolf at your own risk. Hot sex, bad words, and action of the blood and guts kind will ensue.), BLOOD MOON and all the books in the Moonstruck series are on sale this week. Website: www.silverjames.com 

Want: Dr. Jack Shephard. He’s gorgeous and more than ready to perform mouth-to-mouth.

Wed: House. I’m old. He’ll fix me. And we’ll be curmudgeonly together.

Waste: Hawkeye. Had to waste someone and I was more a Col. Potter fan. I know. No accounting for my tastes!

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

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

Thanks for playing!

Wednesday’s Want, Wed, Waste: Characters from TV Ads

Hello and welcome to my version of the game, ‘F*@#’, Marry, Kill. This week we are WWW’ing characters from television commercials.

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

The Brawny Man, Green Giant, Mr. Clean,

(Yes, you read that correctly ;))

brawny-man2 jolly-green-giant mrclean_circle-11

(and just in case your picturing the 70’s, porn star Brawny look:)

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

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of DEATH NOTICE – A killer is using her obituary column to forecast his kills. 

Want: Jolly Green Giant. Well, I love vegetables, he’s jolly, and he’s giant, so I’m sure he’d be a blast to hang out with…and tons of fun in the sack.

Wed: Mr. Clean – I’m sure he’d clean my house, and that makes him win for husband material, hands down.  I can’t think of another reason why I would even need a husband, so he may be my ultimate fantasy man now that I think about it.

Waste: Brawny Man. He’s too outdoorsy, and I’m an inside kind of gal. I want to just chill inside, in my clean house, after I’ve had a romp with JGG (That’s my nickname for my lover, Jolly Green Giant).

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

Kae Elle Wheeler, http://kathylwheeler.com The Wronged Princess – book i,  new and revised! 

Want: The Brawny Man is strong, outdoorsy. But does he clean house? 

Wed: Mr. Clean is hot. And Clean. I could do him. Plus, he cleans house. He’s a keeper.

Waste: The Green Giant, is green and I hate peas. That’s what I think of. Have to waste him.

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

Juli D. Revezzo,  author of  Drawing Down the ShadesBusiness can be hell… Website: http://julidrevezzo.com/

I’ll take the Brawny man for the win…Errr, I mean the Want, Mr. Clean for the Wed (because, hey, he’ll clean my house!) and the …oh, shoot. Do I have to waste the Green Giant? Okay, we’ll use him for fertilizer in the garden. 😉

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

Layla Chase is one of the contributing authors to Cowboy Heat, an erotic anthology of cowboy-themed short stories, released by Cleis Press.    www.laylachase.com

Want—The Brawny Man—who doesn’t love a man in plaid flannel? I spent 3 years in Oregon and saw lots of plaid flannel shirts and even attended a lumberjack competition on July 4th and rain fell!

Wed—The Jolly Green Giant—I picked him as husband material because with all his contacts with the growers, he’d be a good provider.

Waste—Mr. Clean—shaved heads are just not my thing. I fail to see how this style is sexy at all.

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

SILVER JAMES, author of THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC (Werewolves, Fae, and Dragons, oh my! What’s Sade Marquis, a human FBI agent, to do? Solve the crime, of course.), BOOK LINK: ), Website: http://www.silverjames.com 

Want: The Brawny Man. I mean, who doesn’t love a man in flannel with muscles? And he’s a lumberjack. He knows how to take care of his wood.

Wed: Mr. Clean. Hellooooo! The man does housework! What’s not to love? Plus, I think he’s way sexy. (PS, I happen to know his human model — a Norman fireman. *nods* Really!)

Waste: The Green Giant. Okay, size might matter but the dude is green! He clashes with my decor. And I’m not big on veggies.

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

M.J. Schiller, author of THE HEART TEACHES BEST, Website: 

www.mjschillerauthor.blogspot.com

Want: Mr. Clean- he’s muscular and has an attractive self-confidence. You can tell by the way he stands there with his arms crossed. But I HATE cleaning, so I wouldn’t keep him around long.

Wed: The Brawny Man- I always thought he was hot. Kind of in a Tom Selleck way. Plus, if we needed firewood, he’d be all over that.

Waste: The Jolly Green Giant- I’m not big on vegetables.

Wednesday’s Want, Wed, Waste: French Actors

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

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

Gilles Marini, Benjamin Millepied, Olivier Martinez

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

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of DEATH NOTICE (Northland Crime Chronicles, Book 1)  – A killer has something to say, and he’s using her obituary column to get his point across…

(I don’t know these actors, so I’m going by what little I do know, and the superficial ‘looks’ thing. :))

Want: Benjamin Millepied – He’s gorgeous, and although he’s a ballet dancer, he’s very masculine. He’s confident and sexy, he has some kind of charisma about him that’s irresistible. And, how cool would it be to have a fling with Natalie Portman’s husband?

Wed: Gilles Marini – I’m not sure what kind of husband material he’d be, but who cares? Have you SEEN this guy? YUMMMM 

Waste: Olivier Martinez –  He just doesn’t do it for me, although I haven’t seen him in anything other than photos. (That I recall). I don’t like those squinty eyes. (Let’s face it, he doesn’t have that sexy, badA$$ Clint Eastwood squint. He just has really tiny eyes)

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

SILVER JAMES, author of THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC  Werewolves, Fae, and Dragons, oh my! What’s Sade Marquis, a human FBI agent, to do? Solve the crime, of course. Website: http:/www.silverjames.com 

Want: Benjamin Millepied. He’s a dancer. And choreographer. That means he has moves. And stamina. 😉 Oh, and he’s pretty darn easy on the eyes, too! And did I mention that he’s limber? Just sayin’… 😀

Wed: Gilles Marini. He’s a dancer, too, but not professionally. When he took his shirt off for the tango during Dancing With the Stars, I was a goner. I swooned. No, really. Swooned, I tell you! He’s sooo darn sexy that he could be a lover and a husband. But…I wouldn’t want to wear him out so Benjamin can come visit.

Waste: Olivier Martinez. Sorry, dude. You just don’t do it for me. You might be all about the “Revenge” but I’m a lover, not a fighter. Most of the time. 😉

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

Layla Chase, author of Up And Coming, an erotic romance that features a Latin hero who seduces with his dancing ability.  Website:  www.laylachase.com

Want—Olivier Martinez—those intense looks he gave Diane Lane in the movie Unfaithful were scorching and the love scenes were combustible.

Wed—Gilles Marini—I have a secret fantasy over guys who are accomplished dancers and often include a sexy dance scene in my erotic titles.

Waste—Benjamin Millepied—can’t deny that I think there’s something a wee bit creepy about romances that occur while a movie (Black Swan) is in production.

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

Linda McLaughlin, author of ROGUE’S HOSTAGE — His hostage… Her destiny…
Website: http://www.lindamclaughlin.com

Linda is offering a FREE ebook copy of Rogues’ Hostage to one lucky commenter!!!

Want: Olivier Martinez. Not only is he gorgeous, he’s charming and has a cute sense of humor. I watched some interviews at YouTube, and he said that, as an actor, he’s the “shame” of his family of boxers and mechanics. LOL. This Sunday Olivier is starting a multi-episode arc on REVENGE, and I’m looking forward to watching.

Wed: Gilles Marini. Another handsome, charming Frenchman. Gilles isn’t just a good actor, he can dance and cook, too. Perfect marriage material, methinks. I enjoyed his stint on Brothers and Sisters as Rachel Griffiths French lover.

Waste: Benjamin Millepied. I hate to have to do this. Benjamin is an incredible ballet dancer, and I do love the ballet. But I could only find one movie he was in, BLACK SWAN, and he had such a small role, I didn’t even realize who he played until I got to the credits. Apparently his main job was choreographer and he did a fabulous job. But I fell in love with the film, not the actor. If you haven’t seen it, the movie is terrific, suspenseful and visually beautiful. Natalie Portman deserved her best actress Oscar.

Want, Wed, Waste: Cowboys

Hello and welcome to my version of the game, ‘F*@#’, Marry, Kill. This week we are WWW’ing Actors in Cowboy Roles.

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

Clint Eastwood, Tom Selleck OR Sam Elliott, Paul Newman as Butch Cassidy

clint Sam&Tom Paul-Newman-as-Butch-Cassidy

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

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of DEATH NOTICE (Northland Crime Chronicles, Book 1)  – A killer has something to say, and he’s using her obituary column to get his point across…

Want: Clint Eastwood. YUMMM….I have always found him exceptionally sexy. I admire his talent and brilliance so much. I am beyond amazed at how he keeps directing and starring in phenomenal movies, even in his eighties. And, yes, I would still ‘want’ him just like he is at this moment. STILL sexy!

Wed: Paul Newman. His blue eyes and sexy smile, sigh… I adored Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, among the other Paul Newman/Robert Redford movie pairings. Paul was gorgeous and from what I can gather, a terrific husband.

Waste: Sam and Tom. UGH…sooooo hard. But, unlike some of my fellow authors, I’m following the rules. SO, I must waste these two gorgeous, rugged, sexy cowboys. Now, before I waste them, I would, uh…have some fun. 😉

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

JANNINE GALLANT, author of ASKING FOR TROUBLE ~ Will a demon in a diaper bring them together—or tear them apart forever? Available FREE on Amazon now until Feb. 22nd!   Website: http://www.janninegallant.com/

Want: This is easy. Clint Eastwood in his Spaghetti Western days is just too, too sexy. That glimmering stare and go to hell attitude. Oh my! He can carry me off into the sunset on a horse any day.

Wed: Paul Newman (sigh). Those baby blues look straight into your soul. And talk about handsome… I’d have to marry him because he must know how to cook with all those food lines. Right?

Waste: Sorry Sam. The man never did much for me. As for Tom Selleck—rugged and sexy without a doubt, but I’m not a fan of mustaches. I’d have to waste them both!

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

Darcy Flynn, author of Rogue’s Son – Kit doesn’t need a man, thank you very much! Website/Blog: www.darcyflynnromances.com

Want: Clint, you’re one cool guy and handsome to boot. Your ‘spaghetti westerns’ always called to me. Yep, I’d enjoy a fling in one of those honky-tonks!

Wed: That’s easy. Tom Selleck. He’s tall, dark and extremely good-looking. And that twinkle in his eye does something to my innards. J Plus, I’ve always wanted to kiss a man with a mustache! Sigh

Waste: Paul “Butch Cassidy” Newman, normally, you’d be my man. You’re adorable and your piercing, blue eyes make me swoon. But, since you die in the end anyway, I guess I’ll have to let you go.

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

Linda Carroll-Bradd is the author of contemporary rodeo story, Tie Down My Heart. Website www.lindacarroll-bradd.com

Want—Paul Newman—I had a major crush on him in high school. Went to see “Butch Cassidy” 6 times in the movie theatre in its initial release—which was fairly unheard of among my friends.

Wed—Sam Elliott—who wouldn’t want to listen to his gorgeous voice every single day? Even now, I don’t fast-forward through whatever commercial (beef or trucks) when I hear his voice-over.

Waste—Clint Eastwood—can’t get all those Italian-made westerns out of my head and hate squinty eyes in a hero

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

SILVER JAMES, author of THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC (Werewolves, Fae, and Dragons, oh my! What’s Sade Marquis, a human FBI agent, to do? Solve the crime, of course.), Website: http:/www.silverjames.com

Want: Sam Elliott AND Tom Selleck. There is no way I’m going to choose between these two! Want them both. Like now, please! *waggles brows* I mean, I fell into a potted plant for Sam (seriously!) and I’ve had a thing for Tom without his shirt on since forever.

Wed: Since I’m not a polygamist, I’ll marry either Sam or Tom. Or maybe I’ll move somewhere where I *could* marry both. Because, damn. The sexy just doesn’t stop with those two. I could stare and listen (among other things) all freaking day for the rest of my life.

Waste: Sorry Paul Newman and Clint Eastwood. Y’all are really nice and all but seriously, if I have Sam and Tom, I don’t need anyone else. At all. Ever. *nods*

 **********************

Diane Burton, author of ONE RED SHOE (wannabe writer rescues wounded spy while risking her heart). Buy link:  http://amzn.com/B00FDXRHZA  Website:  www.dianeburton.com

Want: Sam Elliott and Tom Selleck. Whoo-hoo. A two-fer. A menage? Nah. One at a time. Love Sam’s voice. He just keeps getting better. Tom? I’ve had a crush on him since Magnum P.I. (Oops, just reread the instructions. I’m supposed to choose? No way. I’m leaving this.)

Wed: Paul Newman. OMG. His grin, his eyes. (notice which I listed first) His faithfulness in real life to Joanne. <swoon>

Waste: Clint Eastwood Sorry. I did enjoy all the spaghetti westerns. Loved him in Two Mules for Sister Sara. But I can’t get past his behavior at the Republican convention.

 **********************

Qwillia Rain, author of Looking at Rose: Poker Posse 1 — Never underestimate a Southern mama’s determination to find the right man for her little girl —  Website/Blog: http://authorqwilliarain.blogspot.com

*** – Qwilla is offering a copy of  Looking at Rose: Poker Posse 1 for one person who comments to the blog.

Want: Paul Newman, he has classic good looks, but his intelligence, quick wit, and sex appeal make him too attractive to overlook.  Although I doubt very much he’d ever give in. An interviewer once asked if he’d ever been tempted to stray after he married Joanne Woodward. His response: Why go out for hamburger when you’ve got steak at home? The man was intelligent, charismatic, and dedicated.

Wed: Tom Selleck and Sam Elliott (I’ll take both of them, they can figure out how to divvy up the time, LOL) Love both men’s voices, their looks, and their self-effacing manner. Both of the men have fascinated me since I was young. They are strong, dedicated, and determined. Shadow Riders exhibited characters who would never give up to retrieve the women they loved, and that they would make their kidnappers pay for the crime with their lives.

Waste: Clint Eastwood. Despite how much I loved him in the westerns and his run on Rawhide (not to mention the great performances in Trouble with the Curve and Absolute Power) I would have to waste Clint Eastwood simply because he honestly doesn’t appeal to me sexually. Never has.

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

Nancy Fraser, author of  A Saved Woman, part of the Lawmen and Outlaws series from The Wild Rose Press. “She was used merchandise, stale bread. How could she ever hope for the love of a good man.” Available now through Kindle Select.

Want: Tom Selleck, not just as a cowboy but in any role he’s ever played (except perhaps the gay newscaster in the movie In and Out). He’s aged very gracefully and is even sexier now. Plus, look at those long fingers! <Fans self!>

Wed: Paul Newman. Loved his sense of humor in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. How can you not admire the man, his charitable causes, and his long and adoring marriage to Joanne Woodward. That was one lucky lady! And, of course, those eyes!

Waste: Clint Eastwood. I’ve never been a Clint Eastwood fan and can’t remember a time when I ever thought of him as sexy.

Wednesday’s Want, Wed, Waste: Valentine’s Day – Romantic Movie Leads

Hello and welcome to my version of the game, ‘F*@#’, Marry, Kill. This week we are WWW’ing Actors in Romantic Movie Roles.

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

Tom Hanks in Sleepless in Seattle, Matthew McConaughey in How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, Patrick Dempsey in Made of Honor

hanks How_To_Lose_A_Guy_In_Ten_Days_10487_Medium ?????????????

Click on book titles below to learn more and to be taken to a buy link

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

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of Valentine romance short story, Cupid’s Beau – What happens when a Cupid falls for her target? (ON SALE for only 99¢)

Want: Matthew McConaughey, I LOVED How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, and MM is very hot, but he acts a little ‘off’ sometimes, so I would just want him on a temporary basis. But many times. 🙂

Wed: Patrick Dempsey. I adore Patrick Dempsey. There’s something about him that really appeals to me. I would Wed him so I could Want him often. And if you haven’t seen Made of Honor, you’re missing out. It is such a cute, fun, sexy movie. Definitely a good choice for Valentine’s Day (or any day). He also seems like a good husband, so Wedding him is a win-win.

Waste: Tom Hanks. I like him and respect him, and Sleepless in Seattle was a good movie. He and Meg had good chemistry, but he’s the least appealing of the two. Everyone loves Tom Hanks, so if I actually wasted him, I’m sure a lot of people would be angry with me, so I won’t. But he’s in my Waste category by default.

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

Marie Tuhart, author of More Than One Night – Escape to an Erotic Fantasy, Website: http://www.marietuhart.com

Want – Matthew McConaughey – because he’s the ultimate bad boy and so darn cute.  I can just cuddle up with him and have all sorts of fun.

Wed – Tom Hanks – because he’s the man you bring home to meet the parents.  He’s funny, sensitive and faithful.  And not bad to look at.

Waste: Patrick Dempsey – there is just something about him that turns me off.  I’m not sure what it is, but he’s not my type of guy.

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

Kathy L Wheeler, author of Quotable ~~ Bloomington Series, book 1 ~~ BE SURE to grab this one, it’s FREE!!! Website:

!!! – Kathy is giving away a copy of Book 2 in the Bloomington Series – Maybe It’s You – A winner will be drawn from the commenters

Want: How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days is my absolute favorite Romantic Comedy. Just typing this out makes me want to drop everything and go put the dvd in. Yum, yum, yum. Plus, Mr. McConaughey is not only a Texas, but hell, was he ripped in Magic Mike. Yeah, I’ll let Matt do me!

Wed: The only part of Sleepless in Seattle that I really loved was when Rosie and Meg were watching An Affair to Remember with Deborah Kerr and Cary Grant (the sexiest man of all time). But who wouldn’t wed a lovable Tom Hanks? Not me. I’ll take him.

Waste: This is ridiculous. There is no possible way to waste Patrick Dempsey. The man pulled a victim out of a burning car for God’s sake! No. I’ll just have to want <i>and</> wed him too. I’m BREAKING the rules.

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

Diane Burton, author of ONE RED SHOE – Wannabe writer rescues wounded spy while risking her heart.  Website:  www.dianeburton.com

Want: Patrick Dempsey. Patrick is hot! What my mom would’ve called a dreamboat. Didn’t see him in Made of Honor; loved him in Enchanted.

Wed: Tom Hanks. No question. I watch Sleepless in Seattle every time it’s on and get all choked up every time. Even better in You Got Mail. In real life, he seems very devoted to his wife Rita. Gotta love that.

Do I have to waste one? Then I guess it has to be Matthew McConaughey.  I didn’t see him in How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, but I loved him in Failure to Launch.

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

M.J. Schiller, author of TRAPPED UNDER ICEA rock star. A lunch lady. Can they bridge the gap? ON SALE for only 99¢! Website: www.mjschillerauthor.blogspot.com

M.J. is giving away a copy of BETWEEN ROCK AND A HARD PLACE. A winner will be drawn from the commenters

Want: Gotta go with Matthew McConaughey. He hasn’t aged all that well, but I’m not exactly a beauty contest winner, either, so I’m not gonna be picky. He still has a certain charm.

Wed: Patrick Dempsey! He has that wholesome, boy next store, killer smile thing going for him and he just seems like a nice guy.

Waste: Wait. Wait just one minute here. I can’t waste Tom Hanks! He’s too awesome and cool. Huh. McConaughey has to go. Waste McConaughey, Wed Hanks and Want Dempsey. Sorry, Matthew. I guess that whole poor aging thing meant more to me than I thought. And you never did “Big” or “Sleepless in Seatle” or “Castaway”…and you’re not the voice of Woody. Ba-bye.

Wednesday’s Want, Wed, Waste: Action Film Actors

Hello and welcome to my version of the game, ‘F*@#’, Marry, Kill. This week we are WWW’ing Actors in Action Movie Roles.

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

Jason Statham, Matt Damon, Gerard Butler

jason matt-damon-jason-bourne olympus-has-fallen-gerard-butler-1-600x398

Click on book titles below to learn more and to be taken to a buy link

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

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of Valentine romance short story, Cupid’s Beau – What happens when a Cupid falls for her target? (ON SALE for only 99¢)

Want: Gerard Butler. He is so, so, sexy. And I loved Olympus Has Fallen, among other movies he’s made. He was tough and smart and BadA$$ in Olympus. And he was scruffy and dirty during a great deal of the movie. Yum!

Wed: Jason Statham. Oddly, I’m not that fond of the Transporter movies and most of his other movies, but he is the quintessential action guy, and he deserves kudos for that. So, I’d give him a Wed. (I thought about switching his spot with Gerard, but how can I NOT want Gerard Butler?)

Waste: Matt Damon. He seems like a good guy, and I love his sense of humor. Also, he’s an amazing actor. But I’ve never thought he was all that hot, and he’s not my favorite when it comes to action roles. Sorry, Matt, I like you a lot, but gotta waste you.

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

SILVER JAMES, author of THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC – Werewolves, Fae, and Dragons, oh my! What’s Sade Marquis, a human FBI agent, to do? Solve the crime, of course. Website: http:/www.silverjames.com 

Want: Gerard Butler because…well…duh! Sexy, built, handsome, has a sense of humor and…did I mention sexy? Oh yeah. I definitely want Gerry! And his accent. Mrrrrrr.

Wed: Jason Statham because he drives like the wind, is protective, has mad martial arts moves (makes him VERY flexible 😉 ), is loyal, and I find him pretty darn sexy, too! Between he and Gerry, I will be a very happy lady. Did I mention accents? Oh, yeah. Jason can read me bedtime stories. *nods*

Waste: Matt Damon because I have to waste someone and he’s it. He’s cute, a little on the sexy side but we wouldn’t have much to talk about. 

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

Diane Burton, author of ONE RED SHOE – Wannabe writer rescues wounded spy while risking her heart.   Website:  www.dianeburton.com

Want: Gerard Butler. The guy is hot! Loved him in the Lara Croft movie. While he does serious drama well, he can do comedy as in The Bounty Hunter and he can sing (Phantom of the Opera).

Wed: Matt Damon. Loved him in the Jason Bourne movies and he seemed such a natural as the father in We Bought a Zoo. Did you know he was a fan (uncredited) in the all-time feel-good movie Field of Dreams?

Waste: Sorry, Jason Statham. I can’t remember him in movies. Either I haven’t seen any of his or he wasn’t memorable.

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

Qwillia Rain, author of In A Lover’s Silence Website: http://authorqwilliarain.blogspot.com

Want: Gerard Butler/Jason Statham–They’re both hot and as physically fit as they are, there’s no doubt in my mind they could probably keep up with me in bed. (And I would love to see what they’d do to keep a lady’s attention if there was a bit of competition in the bedroom. LOL-I write erotic romance as well as romantic suspense, menage is all the rage.)

Wed: Matt Damon–because he has the ability to be both an action star as well as a dramatic actor, not to mention the man won an Oscar with his bestie Ben Affleck for Good Will Hunting. Adding to his appeal…the man took his mom to the Academy Awards the year his movie was nominated. So, he meets the action, drama, smart, and family-oriented criteria. And I have to admit, I’ve enjoyed him as both good guys and bad guys in his different films (especially in The Departed and The Bourne Series)

Waste: Gerard Butler/Matt Damon/Jason Statham– I think I could waste all three of them if they got on my last nerve…no matter how sexy or smart or satisfying they are in or out of bed…

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

Jill Hughey, author of the FREE historical romance, Unbidden  – Website http://jillhughey.blogspot.com

Want:  Gerard Butler because he is big, gorgeous and seems like he’d be fun. And I like his crooked mouth but I’m not sure that is going to age well. Watching him talk makes me wonder about dental or jaw problems later in life.

Wed: Matt Damon. I think Matt Damon is handsome, intelligent, and thoughtful, making him an obvious choice for the long haul.

Waste: Jason Statham has an awesome voice and sharp good looks. Out of these three choices, though, he leaves me the least interested.

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

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

Want: Roosevelt. I mean, if he was unfaithful anyway, I might as well get in on the action, right? He was suave, handsome, and a great leader. I would feel guilty, though, because I adore Eleanor. (Not that I was born when they were in office, mind you, (side note: I might be old, but I wasn’t around when ANY of these presidents were in office) but I admire what I’ve heard about her, I love her quotes. I actually should read her book now that I think about it…)

Wed: Truman. He seemed like a good, caring man. I admire that he fought in World War I. He did make a tough, controversial decision to drop the bomb, but I think he did it with the best of intentions. It put an end to a war that would have cost no telling how many more Japanese and American lives. So…anyway, I think he was a great leader and he did a lot of other good things while in office.

Waste: Lincoln. As much as I admire and respect him, he gets the ‘waste’ mainly because of his lack of attractiveness. But also, had I lived in the Civil War days, I would have wanted to be a Scarlett-like Southern Belle (although, admittedly, I would be hard-pressed to compete with her in the 18-inch-waist arena) and no self-respecting Southern Belle would dare to be seen with a damn Yankee! (No offense to all my Yankee friends – But, we’d have been duking it out on the battlefield)

SILVER JAMES, author of SEASON OF THE WITCH (The Penumbra Papers) –  A human FBI agent, a vampire, a supernatural serial killer–what can possibly go wrong? AMAZON LINK:  Website: http://silverjames.com

NOTE: Silver is offering a free digital copy of THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC (the prequel novella in the Penumbra Papers series) in the winner’s choice of formats. Drawing will be held next Tuesday, February 4th – Be sure to leave your email address with your comment for your chance to win!

Want: Lincoln. I mean, who wouldn’t want a president who can hunt vampires? Okay, seriously, the man had a way with words. And he’s taller than I am. And likes women with padding. Works for me!

Wed: Truman – The buck stops with him. And he’s not afraid to make the hard decisions. He’s also a decent man, and to me? There’s just something inherently sexy about decency and doing the right thing, even when it feels wrong at the time.

Waste: FDR – Eleanor can keep him. I have trouble with infidelity in political leaders. I’m just weird that way.

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

Diane Burton, author of ONE RED SHOEWannabe writer rescues wounded spy while risking her heart. Website:  www.dianeburton.com

Want: This is tough. Roosevelt, I guess. Handsome, debonair. Sure knew how to manipulate the media—they never showed him in his wheelchair or walking with crutches. Charismatic—if he hadn’t died, I’d bet he would have served more terms.

Wed: Hands down, Harry Truman. He took ownership of problems—the buck stops here. He made sure even MacArthur respected the office of president. His best quality? He was faithful to Bess all his life. Back home in Missouri, they lived like regular people. (Saw a replica of their kitchen at the presidential museum.)

Waste: Again, tough choice. I admire Lincoln for his stance on slavery and preserving the union. But I just can’t see wanting or wedding him.

LYNDI LAMONT, author of TOVA’S DRAGON – An earth mage and a handsome dragonshifter team up to save the kingdom from an evil sorcerer. ON SALE for 40% off through Jan. 31 at  http://www.lyndilamont.com/

Want: FDR, who was apparently charming, urbane, and sophisticated, but not a faithful husband. An affair with him would have been a fascinating glimpse into the world of American aristocracy and probably a lot of fun. No place for a blue collar girl like me in the long run though. Can you say misfit?

Wed: Lincoln has been one of my heroes since I was a kid. Despite his faults, he was a great man: smart, funny and a good husband and father. Marriage to him would have been ultimately tragic, though.

Waste: Truman, mainly because of his decision to drop the A-bomb, the 20th c. version of opening Pandora’s Box.

Callie Hutton, author of The Elusive WifeHe doesn’t know he’s about to fall in love with his wife. www.calliehutton.com

Want: FDR as someone I’d want to have dinner with. Talk about his vision for the country. 

Wed: President Abraham Lincoln. I imagine being married to such a compassionate man would be wonderful.

Waste: Truman. Not very memorable for me.

Wednesday’s Want, Wed, Waste: Australian Actors

Hello and welcome to my version of the game, ‘F*@#’, Marry, Kill. This week we are WWW’ing Australian actors (Hmmm….I guess for people who live in Australia, they’re simply ‘actors’.)

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

Chris Hemsworth, Hugh Jackman, Guy Pearce

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

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of two Vampire Diaries Kindle Worlds books: What the Heart Wants and Divine EnemyWhile Damon and Stefan try to control Elena’s blood-lust, the race for the cure takes a shocking detour

Want: This is tough, but I’ll have to say Guy Pearce. He’s sexy and an incredible actor. I have to think of him in movies like Memento rather than Lawless, because then I would definitely want to waste him. Over and over. But that just shows what an amazing actor he is.

Wed: Hugh Jackman. He’s also sexy, and a great actor, and he’d probably make a better husband than Guy Pearce (I’m just going by instinct but if my husband instinct was all that honed, I probably wouldn’t be divorced :)) The most recent movie I saw of his was Prisoners. And if I were going to have a husband and if we were going to have a child kidnapped, I can’t think of anyone else I would want as the father. Freakin’ awesome movie, if you haven’t seen it. Not crazy about the end, but nothing’s perfect, right? (PLEASE no spoilers if you comment on this – I’ve seen it but I hate spoilers so much, I don’t even want others so see them!)

Waste: Dangit…it will have to be Chris Hemsworth. This was really, really tough. I couldn’t use a pic from Thor or Snow White and the Huntsman, or I definitely could not have wasted him. He simply lost the draw, and while he’s gorgeous and sexy and adorable, he hasn’t been around as long as the other two, so he doesn’t have their ‘staying power’. 😉 Yet. I’m willing to give him the test of time.

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

Linda Carroll-Bradd, author of sweet contemporary Gingerbread Wishes.

Want: Chris Hemsworth, droolworthy in his roles in Thor, Avengers and Snow White and The Huntsman. I just love brooding he-men.

Wed:  Hugh Jackman, because he appears to be a real gentleman and devoted to his family.

Waste:   Guy Pearce, probably I’m reacting to his depth as an actor but his depictions of dark characters makes me believe he’s not the nicest person in the world.

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

Silver is offering a free digital copy of THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC in the winner’s choice of formats!!! – Please be sure to leave your email address in the comment section.

Want: Chris Hemsworth- OMG! Talk about man candy! I want to tangle my fingers in his hair and explore his abs with my….well, nevermind! Suffice it to say that this guy can use his hammer on me. Any. Way. He. Wants!

Wed: Hugh Jackman – I’ve crushed on Hugh since forever. Whether he’s the Wolverine or Curly in Oklahoma, or the man out of time in Kate & Leopold, I melt whenever he appears. He’s such a romantic. And darn if he isn’t a family man to boot. Sadly, I’d have to fight his wife for him, but I think I can take her! 😉

Waste: Guy Pearce – Poor Guy. I have to waste someone and the other two choices are no brainers for me. So, Guy? Sorry, but you’re the odd man out.

M.J. Schiller, author of TRAPPED UNDER ICE, They come from two separate worlds. Will they be able to bridge the gap?  Website: http://www.mjschillerauthor.blogspot.com

Want: This was a no-brainer for me. Chris Hemsworth is scorching hot! So hot, I don’t think I could marry him because we’d never leave the bedroom and might, quite possibly, starve.

Wed: Definitely get the Hugh Jackman appeal, too. It’s the intense eyes, if you ask me. He also just seems like a stand-up kind of guy. And if you had any problems, he could just go all Wolverine on them, which is a plus.

Waste: Guy Pearce. I had to Google this one. He has a lot of different looks, this guy! Some I found very appealing, some…not so much. So, because I had to look you up Mr. Pearce and go to all that effort typing your name into the search field, I’m gonna have to waste you. Sorry.

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

Qwillia Rain, author of Looking At Rose: Poker Posse 1 Website: http://authorqwilliarain.blogspot.com

Want: Chris Hemsworth…he looks good in and out of jeans and armor , and the things I could do with that cape he wears as Thor, mmm. He just seems awful young to make it through the long haul (plus he did a great job playing Jim Kirk’s dad in the latest remake of Star Trek). I wouldn’t mind teaching him all the right moves. LOL

Wed: Hugh Jackman…the man is multi-talented. I actually got to see him perform as Curly in Oklahoma on the London stage before his debut as Wolverine in the first X-Men movie. He can dance, he can sing, and man oh man, he blushed every time Halle Berry had her top off in Swordfish! How sweet is that!? No worries of this man straying. Plus, even when he’s playing a shady character he’s an excellent anti-hero.

Waste: Guy Pearce…I have to admit he is a talented actor. I’ve enjoyed him in The Time Machine, Iron Man 3, and LA Confidential, but there’s just something about him that makes me feel like I should weigh everything he says and does against what his motivations and intentions are, plus his ability to make you truly despise how nasty and manipulative his characters are just make me want to take a shower and wash the “ick” away when the movie is over. He makes an excellent villain, and an interesting tortured hero, still, of the three he’s on the bottom of my list

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

Kathy L Wheeler, author of Quotable (Now free!)  Website: http://kathylwheeler.com

Want: Hugh Jackman, but okay, I’ll take Guy Pearce for a want too. Because I’d rather marry Hugh Jackman and keep him for the long term.

Wed: Hugh Jackman, because he could sing to me every morning and every night and I want that forever!!!!

Waste: Chris Hemsworth is nice to look at but he has a baby face. I’m so sorry, Chris. I’ll have to waste you…

Wednesday’s Want, Wed, Waste: The Vampire Diaries’ Jeremy, Matt, Tyler

Hello and welcome to my version of the game, ‘F*@#’, Marry, Kill. This week we are WWW’ing the second-fiddle hotties from Vampire Diaries.

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

Jeremy Gilbert, Matt Donovan, Tyler Lockwood

StephenRMcQueen611113 Matt Donovan tyler

Click on book titles below to learn more and to be taken to a buy link

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

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of two Vampire Diaries Kindle Worlds books: What the Heart Wants and Divine EnemyWhile Damon and Stefan try to control Elena’s blood-lust, the race for the cure takes a shocking detour

Want: Jeremy Gilbert. I have to be sure to focus on the character, not the actor. (I think it would be cool to be married to Steve McQueen’s grandson, if I had to be married, but the ‘character’ is not his grandson. Plus, the actor is a bit of a party animal, although he’s really fun and friendly, so he might make a good husband when he’s ready to settle down.) Back to ‘Jeremy’ – He is a cutie, with an amazing body, but he can be a pain when he goes all hunter and tries to kill Damon. Besides, he dies way too often. What kind of marriage would that be? I mean, how often can a girl be widowed by the same husband and keep her sanity? I would have to put him in the “Want” category.

Wed: Matt Donovan. He’s precious and adorable. He has had a LOT of bad luck and he needs a good woman to make him happy. He is an excellent friend, very loyal, so I think he would make a great husband. Besides, he’s one of the only humans left in Mystic Falls (Even though the Travelers have been inhabiting his body, he’s still ‘human’), and we humans have to stick together. (Unless I get lucky and Damon or Klaus decide to turn me…then bye-bye humanity!)

Waste: Tyler Lockwood. UGH! While he is definitely good-looking, I am SO done with him. He’s just a weasel, the way he keeps leaving Caroline. And don’t get me started on his betraying Klaus. Anyone who mistreats my guy (who I would definitely cheat on Matt with (sorry for ending the sentence in a preposition)), is on my SH*% list! So, Tyler, you get the ‘Waste.’ But then, it’s about time. I mean, you’ve screwed with Klaus so much, you’re living on borrowed time anyway. 

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

MJ SCHILLER, author of ABANDON ALL HOPE ~ It’s been eight years but he still can’t give up Hope.  Website: www.mjschillerauthor.blogspot.com

Want: Well, I can genuinely see me wanting all of them. That’s the beauty of WWW Wednesday. I’m in the driver’s seat! I’m going to take Matt as my want. He’s such a sweet character and he never seems to end up with the girl!

Wed: Easy! Jeremy, (Or Jermy, as we call him around here). SO cute and I would just want to keep him around forever. He plays the hot younger brother well!

Waste: Tyler! He’s good looking but I’ve never been able to get beyond the rich, spoiled boy he started out as when TVD first began. Plus, he’s a hybrid. You’d never know what to expect from him. Come to think of it, that could be a plus…

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

Juli D. Revezzo, author of  Drawing Down the ShadesBusiness can be hell…

http://julidrevezzo.com

Want: Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig)–who doesn’t love the underdog?

Wed: Tyler Lockwood: (Michael Trevino) – He was in Alice–I mean, Malice in Wonderland and Charmed before this. Seems like that’s a good combination. Plus, think of what a good guard dog a Werewolf would make. 😉

Waste: Jeremy Gilbert – Steven R. McQueen. Seems like  a nice kid, party boy thing aside. Well? Since he’s a vampire hunter and the vampire diary characters are our heroes, we can’t root for him. So, he’s outta here this time (poor kid).

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

SILVER JAMES, author of THAT OL’ BLACK MAGICWerewolves, Fae, and Dragons, oh my! What’s Sade Marquis, a human FBI agent, to do? Solve the crime, of course. Website: http:/www.silverjames.com 

Want: Tyler Lockwood because…werewolf, d’uh! Warm, fuzzy, and he knows how to eat… *waggles brows*

Wed: Matt Donovan because…human. He won’t be young and gorgeous when I’m older than dirt, provided he survives all the preternatural baddies, of course.

Waste: Jeremy Gilbert because…he lost the coin toss? Well, that and his whole talking to the dead thing. How would I know if he’s talking to me or something else?

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

Now we’d like to hear from you….which of these: Hunter/Ghost Talker, Human, Hybrid would you Want, Wed, and Waste?

Wednesday’s Want, Wed, Waste: Talk Show Hosts – Giveaway – 99¢ Ebooks!

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

 

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

Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, David Letterman

Click on book titles below to learn more and to be taken to a buy link

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

Me (Alicia Dean). FOUR different Ebooks on sale for a limited time from Amazon: 99¢ each! Lady in the Mist, Death Notice, Liberty Awakened, Liberty Divided. Click here for info and links: Alicia Dean Kindle Book Sale

Want: Johnny Carson. He was funny and adorable. Definitely the sexiest of the three. I think I would actually rather be married to him than David Letterman, but when I think of ‘want,’ Johnny definitely comes to mind before David. So, since I can’t Wed and Want Johnny, he gets the ‘want.’ (Who made up these stupid rules, anyway? J)

Wed: David Letterman. He’s not sexy at all, but he’s really funny. We would have a chaste marriage, but I would have a lot of laughs.

Waste: Jay Leno. He is NOT attractive, and I find him the least funny of the three. I’m SO glad Jimmy Fallon  is taking over for him on Late Night. Now, talk about a ‘want’…

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

Callie Hutton, author of An Angel in the Mail, Angel never wanted to be a mail order bride, but now she’s facing a stranger with five children.  Website: www.calliehutton.com

Want: Johnny Carson, cause in his own way he’s ‘bad little boy’ sexy

Wed: Jay Leno, cause he’d always have me laughing

Waste: David Letterman. ::sigh:: It seems I wouldn’t need a reason, cause he really is a ‘waste.’

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

SILVER JAMES, author of CHRISTMAS MOON  What’s a Wolf to do? Save the girl or save Christmas? Website: http://silverjames.com

Want: Johnny Carson. I went to bed with this man every night for years and I still miss his particular brand of humor. I just wish he was still breathing.

Wed: Jay Leno. He’s rich, funny, has a garage full of really hot classic cars–what’s not to get cuddly over that pre-nup with?

Waste: David Letterman. Yeah. He is sooooo not my type. Snide, arrogant, and there’s nothing socially redeeming about him, IMO.

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

Linda McLaughlin, author of LADY ELINOR’S ESCAPE A runaway heiress leads her would-be rescuer on a merry chase in this sweet Regency romance. ON SALE for ONLY 99¢ at Amazon & B&N. Website: http://www.lindamclaughlin.com/ladyelinor.html

Want: David Letterman who has such an off-the-wall sense of humor. Though if I had my choice, it would be the adorable and equally off-the-wall Charleston dandy, Stephen Colbert. He’s such a hoot.

Wed: Jay Leno, who seems to be an all-around good guy. Plus have you seen his classic car collection? I’d love to go tooling up Pacific Coast Highway in a classic convertible with him some Sunday afternoon. I grew up with old cars and love them.

Waste: Johnny Carson, mostly because I’m not into necrophilia. 😉

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

M.J. SCHILLER, author of BETWEEN ROCK AND A HARD PLACE (Even rock stars aren’t immune to murder.), http://www.amazon.com/BETWEEN-PLACE-ROCKING-ROMANCE-COLLECTION-ebook/dp/B00H0SPAAA/ Website: www.mjschillerauthor.blogspot.com

GIVEAWAY!!! M.J. is offering a FREE copy of Trapped Under Ice to one lucky commenter! Name will be drawn Monday, January 6, 2014 – Be sure to leave your email address along with your comment.

Want: Okay, I’m going purely on looks here for the want. Johnny Carson is the most attractive of the three, although he’s much older than I am and I probably wouldn’t be interested, no offense. But if you’re going straight looks, Johnny’s my pick.

Wed: Well I can’t say Letterman, because I think it was rumored that he’s had affairs. I’ve never heard that about Leno, so I’ll stick with him.

Waste: Wow, that leaves me wasting Letterman, who I have no real desire to waste. Sometimes this game is cruel.  …but I still LOVE it!
