Thank you Mr. Thornton

What’s Jack up to? He’s feeling rambunctious today. Bounding around the house and jumping on the kid's heels as they go off to school. Sorry, Jack, you’re stuck with just me.

Thanks so much to all of you who visited and made comments yesterday. I know it wasn’t my sparkling wit, but Richard’s. So, thank you Richard Armitage. Thanks to you I’ve made some wonderful new friends. Please keep stopping by.

I want you all to know that like a good crusader I am spreading the word. I got in my car last night and slipped the North and South DVD into a friend’s mailbox. Hopefully, we’ll hear from her soon. Got to share the love!

Now I know we were all distracted by Mr. Armitage and the perfection of North and South, but as a writer and a reader, I’d still love to know what are some of your favorite heroes from book or film and as an add on question: what is it that makes a good hero? Is it the face, the body, the voice or is it the manner that makes the man. Do you go for the sweet sensitive type or is it the bad boys that get you going?

For me it’s the bad boy combined with just enough vulnerability to make your heart ache. John Thornton embodied this perfectly for me.


Stay tuned for Project Runway recap!

Oh, so you actually wanted an answer to your question? *grin*

Will be back later with some thoughts!

Thanks Marg!

My favorite hero is MacCady Trelawny from Penelope Williamson's Once In A Blue Moon. He was funny, daring, dark, kind of messed up, but hero worthy all at the same time. My current copy is so worn down I've lost the cover and am close to losing the first few pages, so I need to go get a new

As far as movies go. That's a hard one. Vigo Mortenson's Aragorn in The Lord of The Rings could be my top pick. Mysterious and brave. Yum.

But, I can't forget Jake from Sixteen Candles. He pretty much rocked my Freshman year world.

Kwana said...

Love it, Misty. I had a cruch on Jake from Sixteen Candles for years!

I must get Once In A Blue Moon Thanks for the pick.

And Vigo just won't do you wrong, ever.

Oooohhh Sawyer (or James) is a perfect one from the world of TV. I'd take him over Jack any day. Another one I adored is Henry Fitzroy the vampire from Blood Ties. Although the actor is younger than my youngest son, I consoled myself with the fact that he was actually a very old soul and been around for hundreds and hundreds of year. then there was always Duncan MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod.
And as for books - well, heh heh, I don't think its any secret that my favourite all time romance hero is Derek Craven from Dreaming of You (who a number of us now picture as funnily enough looking just like Richard Armitage!)

Richard Armitage as Derek Craven from Lisa Kleypas' most excellent book "Dreaming of You"! He's got that rough, not-quite-urbane thing going on with the non-posh accent. Very working class, very self-made man. Very hot. Brooding, dark eyes. oh yeah.

I love me some Viggo too. He's so multi-faceted.

I'll second Kristie on Henry Fitzroy from Blood Ties. Who doesn't like a vampire with a wicked sense of humor?

Of course, the hottest guy would have to be my very own DBF. ;) But I'm not biased or anything.

Kwana said...

Thanks Kristie. Great images.

According to you and Sula I must read Dreaming of You! I'll be on it.

Ok, Sula what's a DBF? Sounds quite sweet.

sula said...

DBF = dear boyfriend. As in, my sweetie-pie of the last four years. hehe.

And yeah, if you haven't read DOY yet, you should. It's fab. :)

Kwana said...

Thanks for the clarity Sula!
