~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ALSO, I was given a chore last week--er, I mean, I was tagged by my blogger bud Kristin Rae to "build my own book boyfriend".

How do you play?
Fill out the quiz below, post a picture of a sexy man and tag five (5) other book addicts to do the same. Don't forget to pop to their blogs as let them know they have been tagged! Once tagged... you have do do the same, answer the questions, and keep it rolling! But don't forget the picture of the sexy man! It doesn't have to match your fantasy man, just a little eye candy for the rest of us... heheheee!



1- Hair color and style
**I do tend to gravitate toward brown haired men--like below. (Although I did have one hero who is blond in my book that is coming out in October)



This --if you remember--is the man I'm basing my new hero off of. :)














2 - Eye color and facial features

**There's something about dark hair and light eyes. I like that clean shaven yet still "rugged" look. Like Channing Tatem here. :)

Although I did create a hero who had long hair and beard once. (So not my type!)

3 - Height and body type (see interests #7)




4 - Visible age

I do like men my age **cough cough** or older. As in Harrison Ford here. Even with gray hair, he's still got it. :)












5 - Human or other

Um, I do prefer human. Not to be picky or anything, but, well, I don't want to have to sleep with one eye open. :)
But that being said, Hugh Jackman in Wolverine was pretty yummy.
















6 - Paranormal skills
How about Chris Evans as the new Captain America? I think he's a great casting choice!!








7 - Interests
I always loved Normar when he was with the Red Sox. (Remember this picture?)
He and his wife are so in shape. They deserve each other.
Not that I'm bitter...




















8 - Habitat
How about one from my home state...New Jersey?
I think Bruce Willis has the looks and attitude that I find quite attractive.








9 - Special skills

Okay, this is huge for me. I REALLY appreciate a man who can make me LAUGH. Brian Regan (below) is THE funniest man (next to the hubby) that I've ever heard. (And he's kind of cute, too)














Whew! Very eclectic mix, huh?

Hubby was a good sport about this when he saw me perusing various male pictures last night. As I explained to him, it's all "research"--and he knows all my heroes in my writing have little bit him in them. *wink*

So I will now pass this book boyfriend fun to these fellow bloggers--mainly because I think they'll appreciate some blog fodder. :)

Okay, that boyfriend thing cracked me up. I happen to think Nate Berkus is pretty cute (the designer guy from Oprah), but he is gay...go figure and well, of course I'm married. ;) Makes it double safe.
