Me, author of Liberty Divided, Isle of Fangs Book 2:

Want: Gerard Butler – He is is SEXY and hottttt!!!! Whether he’s a Phantom, bada$$, killer, or whatever, he’s a definite WANT.

Wed: Liam Neeson – He would probably be a good husband, and he’s kind of sexy too.

Waste: Norbert Leo Butz – He doesn’t do anything for me, although I’m only going by his pic, I’ve never seen him in Wicked. And…his name is NORBERT Leo BUTZ, come on…

Diane Burton, author of ONE RED SHOE  Website: www.dianeburton.com ~

Want: Gerard Butler. He’s so hot and he can sing. Wow. He’s dangerous as the Phantom. My fav musical. (Have seen the play 4x)

Wed: I suppose Liam Neeson is all right to Wed, but I would rather have Hugh Jackman. Definitely husband material. Loyal and honest, like Jean Valjean. And what a voice! (Have seen the movie 3x)

Waste: Norbert Leo Butz. Indifferent. Don’t know him. (Never saw Wicked)

Nancy Fraser, author of A Very Scandalous Holiday (up for pre-order, release date 10/14/13) Website: www.nancyfraser.ca ~

Want: Gerard Butler. Let’s face it, when this hunky Scot is in shape … who can resist that body! And, I find the fact that he gave up a career as a lawyer for acting to be especially reckless…and sexy!

Wed:  Liam Neeson. It must be the mixed Irish blood in me that makes me think he’d make a great husband. I always admired his love and devotion for his late wife, Natasha Richardson. He exudes protectiveness, mixed with just the right amount of steam!

Waste: Norbert Leo Butz. Besides not being able to get past the name, he’s too short. Fortunately, for the theatre going public, his talent is huge. I wish him well, but he’s just not the guy for me!

RoseAnn DeFranco, Author of Return to Audubon Springs  Website: www.radefranco.com

Want: Gerard Butler/Phantom (Movie) – Gerard has a very sexy take on the Phantom.  When he suggests I let my darker side give in, I’m ready to make some music of the night! Phantom is rather mentally unbalanced, so I’d prefer to dabble on the wild side without a commitment.

Wed: Liam Neeson/Jean Valjean (Les Miserables, Movie) – Jaen Valjean is so intrinsically good. He is also known for his super human strength. Liam conveys this strength with authority, and at times a crooked smile which is sexy. What woman wouldn’t want a good strong man rubbing her shoulders, and um, er, other parts every night?

Waste: Norbert Leo Butz/Fiyero in Wicked on Broadway – While adorable, and his powerful tenor hits all my musical sweet spots, there is not a lot of substance to a man who can’t decide between two witches. I’ll pass.

Kae Elle Wheeler, Author of The Wronged Princess – Book 1  Website:  http://kathylwheeler.com

Want: Norbert, because he’s young and probably could go for long periods of time.

Wed: Liam because he’s hot and I’d want him forever (and I had to put Norbert somewhere, and he IS cute)

Waste: Gerard Butler? can’t sing. As Phantom? enough said!

Linda Carroll-Bradd, author of Capturing The Marshal’s Heart Website: www.lindacarroll-bradd.com

Want: Phantom because even if he is a stalker, he truly cares

Wed: Jean Valjean because I’ve just love a man with a burning goal and determination

Waste: Fiyero because his loyalty is murky and I couldn’t connect

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

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

Thanks for playing!
