I wrote this book with our friend Clive Owen as the inspiration – someone needs to let him know it’s now out in paperback so he can read it and then option the movie rights for his next thriller. What ya think? Anyone know him or his agent? It’s available here (the book not Clive- alas).
Racing across the globe to help a client isn’t part of corporate lawyer Evangeline Fleet’s normal legal services, but this is no ordinary client. She’s the beloved daughter of an old family friend. In her efforts to save the girl, Evangeline gets in over her head when sexy Interpol agent Cecil Waugh enters the picture in hot pursuit of her client. He follows the lawyer on an international chase from New York City to Rio de Janeiro where they forget their differences for a moment and fall into bed together. Before the sheets can even cool Evangeline makes a daring escape, leaving behind her lover. Relentless in his quest to find Evangeline’s client, Cecil continues the chase across Europe. But it soon becomes unclear who his main target is—Evangeline’s charge, or the spitfire of a woman herself. Only time will tell how hot this pursuit will become.

Let’s revisit a prior bad boy this week. Clive Owen is one of my favorite actors. He’s drop dead sexy and has a wonderful strong thigh and great forearms (Yes, I’m crazy but those are the areas I like in a man). He was the inspiration for my Interpol hero in my book Hot Pursuit. It’s a wild romp across the globe and is half for the month of April at Allromanceebooks. It’s only $3.25 for a full length (85000 word) novel. You can check out the excerpt here.
Blush sensuality level: This is a sensual romance (may have explicit love scenes, but not erotic in frequency or type).

I’ve had a busy week. I had a short story released by Sweet Cravings Publishing called Surf Break. It’s set on my hometown beach and it’s a quick, fun little read and even Ernest Hemingway makes an appearance. Hehehe. Arabella once told me that I write like a man and I got all offended until she said the man was Hemingway. Since she writes all flowery like Faulkner, I could see how she might think my more straightforward prose would be like our buddy Ernest. I couldn’t resist adding a flavor of the man to this lil ole story. Buy link
I didn’t bring you here to talk about Hemingway though, so forgive my little tangent. My other new release this week is a much longer story. It’s called Hot Pursuit and it’s from Ellora’s Cave. It spans the globe- from New York, to Rio and then to several places in Europe. It’s quite an international chase. I started this story in late 2009 with the initial premise coming from a conversation with Rita Bay and it’s gone through many incarnations since then and is nothing like Rita envisioned when we had that talk.
I now believe it’s one of the best stories I’ve written. The inspiration for the hero was our previous badurday boy, Clive Owen. He’s absolutely perfect as the hero, an Interpol agent. If you’ve seen the film, The International (which came out after my first draft of this story) or Derailed, this story calls for the same type of action from the hero.
My friend, Darlene Henderson, even wants me to send a copy to Clive’s agent. The hero and heroine are both over thirty so I think he could pull off the role easily but I’m not so stalkerish as to really send to his agent. Thanks to Darlene, though, I do know who he is. LOL!
Here’s the book trailer and cover. And oh, yeah, a little bit of Clive (who also played Hemingway in a film- see how it all works together?).

Found this video and even though I think this chick that made it must be much younger than me based on her top five, I agree that most of the men she has chosen are amazing and special. Alas, most of her top five are probably young enough to be my much younger brothers. AND she can’t spell Colin’s name, but she picked some good pics of him, so we’ll forgive her that sin. I enjoyed the video even though she left out some of my favorites. I hope you like it.

I’m still brain dead from the work week and the writing sprints I’ve been doing each night (added 12,000 + words to the WIP this week), so I decided to just do a montage of some of the pictures I use for inspiration for the heroes in my books who all have an element of badness that needs a heroine to tame. Here’s lucky number 13- 13 photos, that is.

My favorite Clive is Clive Owen but there is another Clive from the British Isles that’s pretty amazing himself. His name is Clive Standen. He’s played in a number of great shows, most notably as Robin Hood’s Brother on the BBC television series. He’s also played a character on Dr. Who. What I’m enjoying him in right now is a series on the Starz channel. It’s called Camelot and has the amazing Joseph Fiennes as Merlin in it as well. Clive plays Sir Gawain and man, he is some kind of hot. I love a man in breeches and one that’s not afraid to get dirty. Enjoy a taste of Clive Standen. Check him out in some of his roles if you have a hankering to drool a bit.
