Yeah, I know. Some of you may be squirming right now at me even talking about the festive season, but I know that the next book I’m going to write is going to be a Christmas one and so that means, for me, a lot of Christmas preparation.
I’ve been making a Christmas Spotify playlist and though there’s only a few songs on there at the moment, it’s slowly building.
I’m also setting my story in Iceland, in a fictional town, but am very much enjoying researching Icelandic festive traditions and, of course, my hot hero! There are a few candidates and I thought you could help me choose my inspiration!
Now, because I don’t want to incur the wrath of copyright infringement on photos (which I have fallen foul of, in the past and it cost me a pretty penny, or two!) I’m going to put the link to pictures of my heroes on Pinterest, on my Which Viking? board. This link is safe.
My first hero that I’m looking at is Lasse Matberg. He’s your classic-looking Viking. Blonde. Blue-eyed, rugged. Broad and muscular. Yum!
The second hero that I’m looking at is Travis Fimmel (and he appeared int he show Vikings. He has lovely ice-blue eyes, but appears more rough and ready to me and I’m not sure he has the right appeal for me.
The third hero I’m looking at is Chris Hemsworth! I mean, he plays Thor, so I had to put him in, right?
And finally, my
secret favourite, is Alexander Skaarsgard. He played Eric the vampire in True Blood and Tarzan, Lord Greystoke, for heaven’s sake! (sighs)
They all have their plus points for me! I’m not sure if I can choose between Lasse and Alexander.
I can’t think why …
Anyhoo! Tell me which one you like the best?
Who should be my Icelandic Paediatrician hero?
Or is there someone else I might have missed? Tell me all about it in the comments below. I
can’t wait to drool over more pictures can’t wait to see what you suggest!
