Day 2 - Revealing Character Identity!

Meet Suzanne, a slim 5' 7" honey blonde, moss green-eyes, a natural beauty who loves horses, runs a successful advertising agency, and at present, doubting the sanity of impending marriage to childhood companion - now a cavalry officer in the Blues and Royals ( Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth IIs Household Cavalry).


Suzanne is that of bubbly mature thinking adult, hates rows and will stand off from confrontation, can't abide hurting anyone in a verbal sense, wouldn't dream of lashing out unless provoked in witnessing animal cruelty, outwardly passionate about many things, and sensitive to others needs when most in need herself for a little TLC.


For those interested in Captain Nick Dulverton: he's 6' 3", a romantic at heart, cool-headed in the face of adversity ie; war situations and, vengeful women who haven't managed to get him to the alter. He's a chivalrous officer duty bound not only to Queen and Country, he has committments to his inheritance: the latter an emotional pull on his conscience in maintaining the country estate for future generations of the Dulverton family.





                                                                               

Hi Girls,


Thanks so much for dropping by to comment!

This has been such a fun blogfest, and not easy for Jen to coordinate with a day 1 and day 2, especially given that across the various time zones around the planet some people have retired to bed on day 1 others just waking to morning coffee.

Without naming names those who came closest to describing Suzanne can see for themselves how close, but three closer and one as good as spot on!

Thanks for your entry!!! I really enjoyed this blog fest and can't thank you enough for joining in on the fun!

Renae said...

I like them both, but Captain Nick is so very cute! Well Done!

Creepy Query Girl said...

wow- she looks a lot like what a pictured! Great characters!

Summer Ross said...

I think she looks older than I originally thought with much short hair. lol Thanks for posting these pics, they are great!

Dianne K. Salerni said...

So ... Suzanne doesn"t want this smoldering Nick? Of course, he looks rather difficult to mold into that worshipping hubby we all want ... but, ooh la la!

Christina Lee said...

Well hello there...Captain Nick ;--)

Terry Stonecrop said...

He's hot and she's beautiful! Great characters, too.

Susan Fields said...

I think I did pretty good at my guess. :) Great choices!

Elizabeth Mueller said...

Wonderful! I so much prefer the description of honey blonde to dirty blonde. Ugh. Great picture! <3

Brenda Drake said...

Captain Nick is hot and I almost got Suzanne. Love them! :D

Steph Sinkhorn said...

Beautiful characters. They look full of sparkle and fire. Wish I had made it around in time to comment yesterday; sorry about that!

Amanda Sablan said...

Hmm, I could have sworn I put in a guess for this, but I couldn't find my comment on your last post... /:

Now I don't even remember what I put (if I did), but the woman is gorgeous and the man... divinely yummy. ;]

Talei said...

Hello ;))

Excuse while I pick myself off the floor here... Captain Nick is sending me smouldering looks. Phew!! (fanning self here).

Suzanne is perfect, I had her pinned as younger though but after reading your description above and the snippet again I can see how she agreed to the wedding. Of course she chooses not to take the dashing Captain here there's a queue - behind me. ;D

Thanks so much for coming by, I know the timezones play havoc but its been a great blogfest!

Ju Dimello said...

Whoa Francine.. Wonderful picture.. I can see I didn't picture her correctly..but well :) I did try..

Great to see you having fun with blogfests.. I am currently doing the same with author interviews ;) Next week is a double treat...since not only an excerpt, but a free book is involved.. Come over if you love paranormals or otherwise too :)

Christine Danek said...

I'm so sorry I didn't get to yours yesterday. Anyway, great characters and hello captain. ;)
Have a great weekend!

Lydia Kang said...

I love the characters! It's so fun to see them in the flesh like this.
Hey thanks for commenting on my blog--that idea about writing a practice prologue--brilliant!

Donna Hole said...

Definitely characters to drool over.

I know they'll be awesome in your novel.

oh, I see another RA fan :) I've sort of got noticed by the RA fans some time ago and now my blog is frequently visited by RA ladies, so whenever I see his face somewhere I feel like I'm among friends even though I've never really seen him in anything myself :))

Francine said...

Hi Dezmond,

Welcome to the love zone!

Ooooh yes, RA.

OMG you've never seen the BBC production of the "Sheriff of Nottingham", never seen BBC "Spooks", nor RA's latest film based on Chris(SAS)Ryan's book? Lordy, you've been missing the best of British, next to Sean Bean, of course (Sharpe)!
