Here’s a new book that people are talking about over at Romance Divas.  Check out this blurb….

Deidre Knight Cranks up the Heat in Her Latest Installment in the Parallel Series: PARALLEL HEAT

“Intelligent characters, hot romance and breathtaking adventure with epic feel—exactly what I want to read!” – Susan Grant, New York Times bestselling author

“A fantastic and riveting new voice in paranormal fiction.” -Karen Marie Moning, New York Times bestselling author of Spell of the Highlander

“At times humorous, at others heart-wrenching, but always compelling, Deidre Knight offers readers a fresh, wonderfully creative glimpse at the complexity of human decisions. What a page-turner!” – Gena Showalter, Author of Playing with Fire

In the unforgettable, alternate world of Parallel Heat, two enemies are bound by betrayal, vengeance—and forbidden passion.

Warrior and royal guardian Marco McKinley has been assigned a vital mission on Earth, where a war between human fighters and otherworldly soldiers is rising in the far reaches of Wyoming. But he’s also been warned about twists of fate yet to come-ones that will transform him into the enemy of his own people and appoint him the personal protector of beautiful soldier Thea Haven.

Little do Marco and Thea know, but they have met before in an alternate universe, and they are bound by betrayal and vengeance. Now, on a world at the brink of destruction, forbidden passion ignites—but will the destiny Marco has glimpsed unfold a second time?

007: Bond is Sexy, but He’s no Romance Hero.

October 5, 2006 at 9:03 pm (Movies, Sexy Men)

Did anyone read the article on Daniel Craig as the new James Bond in this weekend’s Sunday paper Parade magazine?  I think he is going to make an interesting Bond, and I can’t wait till Nov. 17th for “Casino Royale” to be released.  Sure, he’s not Sean Connery…but who could be?

He is sexy, though.  Remember the shower scene in the first Tomb Raider? 

But what about the character of James Bond?  To be honest, James Bond just doesn’t “do it” for me.   Doesn’t matter which actor is playing him…I like him, I want him to get the bad guys and save the day…but he doesn’t move my heart. 

He isn’t meant to do that either.  He’s an action hero, not a romance hero.

Now wait a minute, you might be saying to yourself.  What about all those “Bond girls”?  He has a romantic interest in every movie.

And there’s the rub for me.  It’s “girls”,  not “girl”.  There is sex and lust, but no love…no happy ever after for him and the girl.   So while I like the fact he looks wonderful in a tux…he’s just eye candy.

But eye candy isn’t all bad 🙂  My favorite Bond so far was Sean Connery.  Do you have a favorite Bond actor?

Sexy Men on Youtube.com

Okay, I haven’t been spending all of my time on Youtube.com watching sexy Gerry/Gerard Butler fan videos….

I also got my website up and going. Check it out at http://www.margolukas.com/.  (the link is over on the right, too).  I hope you like the guy in the background picture. I thought he was yummy.

But that YouTube.com  ….man, can that suck up a few hours!  I finally had to allow myself one peek per day.  And while I did enjoy the video of The Phantom of the Opera set to the song, Dirty Little Secret, by the All American Rejects…I did eventually realize there are videos on there about subjects other than Gerard Butler.

 They have videos about Johnny Depp, Sean Bean, Viggo Mortenson, and other Sexy Men.

What can I say?  There is a reason I write romance stories!
