Okay, so I admit that today’s post is a little shallow- and I apologise in advance. Perhaps it’s because of the World Cup and I’m hearing a lot of different languages, or because I’m currently writing an Italian hero…but I have to admit to having a girlie crush on any man with an accent.
And yes, I know that being kind and generous of spirit and having a sense of humor are essential qualities in a hero- but one sentence from a man who drops his haitches or has a lyrical r or just plain whispers in half-english and I’m a goner. And I know I’m not alone because exotic heroes are immensely popular in the form of Greeks, Italians, French and, of course, our Tina’s gorgeous Brazilians.
Here’s the blurb: One kiss she didn’t forget!
Junior surgeon Kara Stephens has been assigned her first high-profile case to help an injured princess. Great news—if she wasn’t working with hot-shot Irish surgeon Declan Underwood, the man she kissed at the hospital ball! Declan’s notoriety with women is rivalled only by his reputation as the best reconstructive surgeon around. But his glamorous life in London is a far cry from his poverty-stricken childhood, and Kara’s about to discover that there’s more to her charismatic maverick than meets the eye…
So I thought I’d share with you some of my current crushes and rather hoped that you may have some more you can recommend?
Raoul Bova. The inspiration for Matteo, the hero in the book I’m writing. Italian. Tall. Dark and ubiquitously handsome.
Olivier Martinez. French. There’s no such thing as a mistake.
For Kate, my blog twin, the newly single Antonio Banderas…
and again, because you can never have too much…
So who or which accent have I missed out? Let me know and I’ll add them to the list!
