Monday's Muse

Monday, October 17

Sorry, but the image containing the Monday's Muse has been removed from this blog so as not to violate any copyright issues.  Thanks for your understanding!

This week's Muse is inspired by a paranormal romance I just finished reading.  The Goblin King by Shona Husk, which I think is my favorite paranormal romance that I've read so far this year.  Granted I don't read a lot of paranormals, but this one was fresh and emotional (which I always love).  I hope to have a review for you about it sometime soon, but in the meantime I couldn't help but look for a Muse with dreadlocks.  

Ms. Husk's hero in the Goblin King has dreadlocks that he strings amber beads into  which has  significant meaning to the story as well as to the character...so much so that I even abandoned my usually hard and fast rule that a man should have shorter hair than me and actually made me dig the dreads :)  Though the hero in the story was of Celtic decent, I'm thinking that Mamoa with his dreads and beads would make a good stand in for Ms.  Husk's hero because he is undoubtedly sexy, but he can also give some mean killer looks. 

What do you think about long hair on men?  And while we are at it, what about men wearing jewelry?  Usually I don't like it, but on Mamoa it works...big time.  Maybe its because the necklace isn't gold, or some big flashy thing.  Anyways I decided not to question it too much and just enjoy :)  Like I hope you do!

This week at Seductive Musings:
  • Monday:  Later today I think I should have some winners from previous posts to announce
  • Tuesday:  Author Elizabeth Hoyt will be my guest to share a bit about her upcoming historical romance Scandalous Desires.  I don't know about you, but I've been waiting to read this story since Wicked Intentions (the first book in the Maiden Lane series).  I can't wait to read it!!!!  Have I mentioned lately how much I love Ms. Hoyt's stories :)
  • Wednesday:  Contemporary Romance author Bella Andre will be my guest to share with us her relatively new Sullivan Family series.  This is one series that has been on my radar so I can't wait to learn more about it.
  • Thursday-Friday:  I hope to have a few more reviews for you.
  • Tempting Trailer: This week's Tempting Trailer is for Karen Hawkins' new historical romance A Most Dangerous Profession, the third book in her Hurst Amulet Series.  While the book description is definitely tempting, the video itself...I don't really care for.  It's the acting.  It's not good.  I think this is a prime example when still pictures definitely would have been better....at least in my opinion :)  What do you think?


Also of Interest:
  • The British Babes Book Brigade is having a month long celebration on their Facebook page in honor of the 200th anniversary of Sense & Sensibility! They will be giving at least one Jane Austen related book away each weekday! All Jane Austen fans are invited to check it out!  

Finally, I'd like to congratulate all of the authors will new releases this week, especially Musings author Jaci Burton whose Romantic Suspense The Heart of a Killer comes out on Tuesday!  That is one smokin' hot cover.  I especially love that her hands look as if he pinned them to the wall....but his hands are holding her face.  Love!  Congrats Jaci!

You know, those are some good questions... And it all depends on the man, I think. I've seen a lot of them that really can't pull off the long hair, espeically things like dreadlocks, and I'd rather they just cut it short. But I've also seen some that I think look sexier with it long.

Same with jewlery. It depends on the man, and it depends on the type of jewlery. No man, no matter how sexy he is, should ever have more bling than an heiress or princess. But simple pieces (silver is always my preference, both for me and for any guy I see), like the one this week's Muse is wearing, it fits and can be very delicious!

I have to agree with you on the video for Hawkin's novel--just not my favorite. But the book is still going on my list, as well as many of the others that you highlighted for release this week. :D

Enjoy,
TBQ

I'm not a big fan of jewelry on guys but I've always loved long hair. Daniel Day Lewis in Last of the Mohicans, Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn in LOTR, and of course, long haired Eric (Alex Skarsgard) in True Blood - yum!

Longish hair is okay (something to hold on to) but not too long; I don't want a romp in the sheets to be filled with "ow! ow! You're on my hair! Get off! Get off!" from the both of us.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy one...so in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both Amazon.com and Amazon.ca gift cards on this rewards site)
