I know, i know. I should be doing more serious blog content. Telling you about the rigors of writing my current WIP. But doing the research for a post on beautiful lips is just soooo much fun. So i started with images of those by whom all lips are measured. And then just added a few other beauties for your enjoyment. I’ll get more serious — later. : )
I thought it might be fun to look at some of the latest TV eye-candy. Matt Bomer stars in White Collar which is a pretty fun FBI show. Matt does a good job although he really isn’t quite cool enough to convince us he’s the world’s greatest art thief.
The book i’m currently reading — Safe Harbor by Tymber Dalton — got me thinking about BDSM (that’s bondage, discipline, sadism, masochism for the uninitiated). Like many people not in the lifestyle, i still enjoy some element of D/s (dominant/submissive) in books, like in Safe Harbor. And i wonder why that is. Am i a closet submissive yearning to get out?

I’m a big fan of Lynn Lorenz. (see a link to her website on my blog roll) She writes mostly m/m and m/m/f and has been a great model for me in my writing. (Ah,
Of the three books in the series my absolute favorite is the last, Edward, Unconditionally. This is the story of the unlikely romance between Jack, the ultimate alpha-male and chief of police in a small
There are a lot of wonderful characters in Edward, Unconditionally such as Edward’s grandmother who he has come to heal, and all of the men who starred in the previous two books (BTW, i read this book first and had no trouble understanding all the characters and their relationships. I went back later to read their stories.) Their responses and reactions to Edward help us see him more clearly. Edward is described as dark-haired, slender and “too pretty to be a man.” In Edward’s character,
I tried to find a picture that i thought might begin to capture some of Edward and really couldn’t fit my mental images in a photo. So i just went for broke and chose a picture as outrageous as Edward. The feathers? Edward at the Atlanta Gay Ball! : )
