Male Blond Fest.

Reading a lot of HM&B novels one can see that blond heroes get a rough deal in the HM&B hero stakes. So, I thought I'd have a blond fest of oldies and newbies to the blond movie star stakes, and perhaps some of you out there might look kindly on having a blond hero in your Modern Heat etc.

Take a moment to study these newer faces that have hit the big screen and TV channels on a regular basis. What if anything do you like about a specific face and the individual's attractive qualities. Could you see them as inspiration for a hero in one of your novels?

Let's face it some of these older faces have drawn sighs, ahhhs and "oh god he's simply delicious" like statements.

So, what's wrong in having a blond hero?

I've omitted Sean Bean from the oldie listing (can be seen below in previous historical related post)because I'll probably be accused of obsessing over him!!!

Post your thoughts and let's find out if blond males are out of fashion!

New Project whilst waiting on Submission Replies.

Due to a comment I've since added fun-time movie female heroine (Nicole Kidman)alongside the hero (Jude Law) and George Clooney whom I think could pass himself off as the shipping magnate.

I mentioned previously about researching jewels for another historical novel, but meantime characters from a comtemporary theme appeared in a dream and just had to take precedence. Hence I've embarked on their story first, which involves a stunningly good-looking hero movie star,

a billionaire shipping magnate, and a glamorous heroine who incites male lust without even trying.

The plot incorporates love, betrayal, emotional and physical scarring, and love regained despite odds stacked against such happening.

I blame this image of steps leading down to secluded cove for inspiring the present WIP. It embodies the essence of what happens and why the hero turns to this place in his time of need. Needless to say there is a very sad underlying element to the story, but the end makes up for all the heartache suffered by hero and heroine alike.

This is a side view of the property owned by the stunningly good-looking hero, who, for reasons I cannot reveal feels need to hideaway from the world mid-novel and in doing so becomes a mystery stalker!!! The steps in the first image (above)are to the left of this image.

Imagine lush tropical island, and living in this gorgeous villa. Well you can't, it belongs to a billionaire shipping magnate, who sought a special person to take control of his life, found her, and whisked her away to his island retreat, though I can't say why he needs her! It would reveal too much of the plot.

Stunnng view isn't it? Lucky Billionaire and heroine look out on it every day for months, and then an old love of hers unexpectedly walks centre stage! Hee hee, love never runs smooth.

I really love this yacht because it's a perfect replica of the yacht, which is featured often within the novel. It of course belongs to the billionaire shipping magnate who has designs on the heroine, not least in a sexual manner. Speaks for itself, it's a bird-pulling magnate: the yacht!

Just for historical interest, this is the fort where the real "Man in the Iron Mask" was kept captive, his identity never revealed. It does feature in the novel but is not a main prop.
