No, I haven’t disappeared under a pile of socks…

A while ago someone showed me this picture-I think it was on the ‘Romance Diva’s’ Forum-and, of course, I’ve totally forgotten who he is-if anyone can remind me, please let me know so I can give him proper credit. 😀

When I saw this picture, I immediately thought of Anthony Sokorvsky, the hero of my upcoming book, Simply Wicked which comes out in September from Kensington Aphrodisia. (follow the link and read the excerpt and you’ll see why)

Usually I never see a physical representation of my characters, they remain in my head in all their utterly sinful gorgeousness and usually I prefer that. How many times has someone made a series or a movie of your favorite book and -in your opinion-totally miscast the hero? Several times in my opinion-(although Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy and Alan Rickman as Colonel Brandon are notable exceptions 😉 )

I occasionally get email from readers who suggest real live actors for my characters and I always rush off and google image them to see whether I think they fit the image in my head. Usually, not quite, but that’s the great thing about reading a book rather than watching a movie. In a book, your unique experiences meld with the words to form the characters faces, and I like that. In a movie, it’s one person’s idea-and a comment on how big the movie budget was.

Any movie’s ruined for you by the actors chosen to portray the hero or heroine?
And can anyone tell me this guy’s name? LOL
