Today’s book is a two-fer! A copy of To Do List and a copy of Sweet Charity (both digital books) in the format of the winner’s choice. These are connected novellas set in Davis, California.
Since she could pick up a pencil, Belle Taylor has used lists and charts to map out her life. When she achieves a goal, she marks it off her to do list. Simple. But now, just steps away from her corner-office, name-on-the-letterhead goal, she realizes that the life she thought she wanted may come at too high a price.
Exhausted, she retreats home for Christmas vacation to rethink her life, complete with all-new lists. What she hadn’t expected is Rafe Bettencourt, her brother’s best friend, the man who she thought only saw her as a pesky younger sister. But when he kisses her under the mistletoe, Belle finds herself with a whole new set of goals to balance with what she thought she always wanted.
Rafe knows Belle is trying to figure out what to do with her life. He also knows he’s done loving her from afar, and he’s not beneath making it as hard as possible for her to choose to return to San Francisco.
Because Rafe can make to-do lists too—and his plan is to seduce Belle back home where she belongs. At his side. And in his bed.
Charity Harris has finally got a taste of handsome bad boy and lifelong friend, Gabriel Bettencourt after eight years of pretending a horrible one night stand never happened. Trouble is, he’s persisting with his story about not wanting a relationship and not being good enough for her.
Gabriel has ached to make Charity his for many years now and having her in his bed, willing and not flinching away from his darker urges is more than he’d ever imagined it could be. But Charity needs candlelight, not candle wax and he didn’t have the kind of soul she needed in a husband. But he’d be a fool to turn down the offer of a short term fling so he could have his fill until it was time to move on.
Charity can’t be managed and Gabriel finds less and less resistance to her insistence that good girls can still be naughty and bad boys like him can still be gentle and loving when the time was right.
When he runs away to think things over on New Year’s Eve, she follows. Gabriel is about to find out that even sweet girls have their limits.

Wonder Woman was my fav. I loved her magic bracelets, and that she had an invisible plane to fly in. I even had a Wonder Woman bathing suit growing up….ah fond memories.

Batman from when I watched the TV series as a kid and then the movies
May 1st, 2009 at 7:07 am · Link
Oh wow, that’s not an easy question…
I have loved Batman since forever–the angst! the identity crisis!–but then I discovered Wolverine and man, does he give Batman a run for his money!

Wonder Woman is mine. I can remember watching Wonder Woman when I was younger…I am always amazed how a pair of glasses and a different style of hair can make you unrecognizable.
May 1st, 2009 at 7:35 am · Link
Wolverine and Gambit from X-men. Then after probably Superman. Wolverine because he’s so gruff but can be a marshmallow sometimes.Plus he’s powers are really cool. Gambit because he’s so charming and Cajun. Superman because he’s always good. He gives up having a life of his own so that he can be there to save people.

I love Batman he’s so mysterious and handsome!!! He’s actually one of those superheroes are are really human and he uses his knowledge and technology to fight!

Growing up is was the character Isis, from the 70s TV show. Today, it would be Wolverine, but only if he really does look like Hugh Jackman. Yumm! 😉

Has anyone ever seen the show Greatest American Hero. For some reason when this question was ask, that theme song stuck in my head. I wouldn’t say Ralph from that show is my favorite, but that show cracked me up. I guess my favorite would have to be Superman.
