Monday's Muse

Monday, December 12

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!

Ok, don't faint, but I think I might have OD'd on Alpha males last week. LOL.  Who knew that was possible?  I went on a complete Alpha binge last week, and I have to say after reading 3 or 4 back to back I just couldn't stand their domineering and protective ways anymore!

So my antidote...was Charming Mickey from Elizabeth Hoyt's Scandalous Desires.  I've been wanting to read this one, and just couldn't resist that Irish charm combined with a seductive rogue.  Yeah, he's alpha too, but does it with a smile...and that made all the difference.  So this week's Muse is also a charming Irishman.  Be still my beating booklover heart :)

Charming Mickey is supposed to have black hair and dark eyes with wicked charm, master of his opulent domain...and you know, I can totally see Colin Farrell in that role, which is why Colin is my Muse of the week.  Did you read the book?  If so who would you cast as Mickey O'Connor?  Did Silence's story live up to your expectations?  I have to admit that I've been looking forward to Silence and Mickey's story the most from the Maiden Lane series.

This week at Seductive Musings:
  • Tuesday:  I'll have some winners and maybe a review *ducking* (maybe)
  • Wednesday:  Author Christine Young will be my guest to share her novel Highland Honor with us.
  • Thursday:  I have some thoughts about self publishing and the industry as a whole
  • Friday:  I have a fun post for you that Seductive Reviewer DD sent me last week that I didn't have time to post & I hope to have another review for you.
  • Tempting Trailer: This week's Tempting Trailer is for Christy Reece's Last Chance Rescue Series.  I haven't read this author before, but love Romantic Suspense and this trailer has me intrigued.  I think I'm gonna check it out more.  Have you read any of them, if so what did you think?

Finally, I'd like to congratulate all of the authors will new releases this week, especially Musings authors Courtney Milan, & Pamela Clare (which I somehow missed last week).  Congrats Ladies!!!

Beautiful Colin :) Oh yes, he'd make a perfect Mickey. I haven't read Silence and Charming Mickey yet but will this week. Thanks for the Muse fix. :)

I think you're spot on casting Colin as Charming Mickey. I loved every single word of Scandalous Desires, cannot wait for Winter's story.

Love Colin! Thanks for the picture.

I have not read Christy Reece's books yet but they look interesting and the video was very intriguing!

Lovely muse choice--even if he is clothed *Pouts* Oh well. We have to mix it up sometimes, right? :D

I've not read the book (I'm a bit behind on Hoyt's novels) but I'm going to trust your judgment on Colin as Mickey.

As to the book trailer--very intriguing. I haven't read any of Christy Reece's yet either, but plan on doing so---I've heard a lot of great things about them and the covers are always yummy.

Hot Damn! ITA! Colin is great as Mickey!

I'm behind on Christy Reece's books, but they're on my TBR pile. That pile has now turned into pile(s). I'm hoping Santa brings me multiple bookshelves.

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 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 and gift cards on this rewards site)
