Okay so it’s not really a secret that I get crushes on my heroes. I’m a hero-ho. While I’m writing him, he’s number two in my heart (right after my dude, who is sort of the template in some way or other for all my heros). ANYWAY, so I’m writing Sensual Magic right now. It’s the paranormal follow up to Stripped (coming in the What Happens in Vegas antho in May!) and it’s oodles of fun to write – my favorite kind of heroine, Nell is a cop of sorts. She totally KNOWS William is meant for her even though he’s all wounded and stuff, making him irritable at times and always arrogant.
Now William has been in my head since I wrote Stripped (fall of 2006, god that’s forever ago it seems) and with eighteen months of him in my head, I’ve really got a crush on him. The other day, I was looking at something at a celebrity site like Go Fug Yourself but not one and I can’t remember now anyway. So, I came across this man and I thought, this is him.
Josh Lucas. Who can be effortlessly sexy, classy, elegant and yet, he’s also fabulous in jeans, white cotton oxford shirts and no shoes with a corona in his hand. I like that range. I like the amusement in his eyes. Now every time I write I see him and William lives inside.
I’m currently attempting to hack up a lung so I’ll leave you with pretty pictures of pretty mens and stuff.

Josh is a hottie. Didn’t you love him in Sweet Home Alabama? Mmmm… yummy…
He was my visual ‘aid’ for Aiden in Triad. The eye color is different, but he’s what popped into my head when I was reading it.
Hey only 9 days till Standoff comes out!

You know I hadn’t thought of the connection to Aidan but you’re right! And I absolutely loved Josh Lucas in Sweet Home Alabama, it’s one of my favorite lazy weekend day movies.
