Badurday- September 3, 2011- Aidan Turner

I know, I’ve already featured this guy before but, you know what? This is my day to talk about bad boys and I can do what I want (with a few restrictions) and so, here he is again. Last time I featured him, I was talking about the show called Being Human where our boy played a vampire. He’s since left that show in a tragic ending. Now, I’m telling you to watch a show called Desperate Romantics  which was actually filmed prior to Being Human.  In this series, Aidan plays Dante Gabriel Rossetti, famous poet and painter.  The man he plays was quite sexual and had lots of charisma and charm that he used on the ladies. Aidan definitely fits the bill in this movie. He’s sultry and wicked.  I’ve also seen that he’s set to play in The Hobbit.  Should be interesting to see him in that as well. He’s a great actor, to say nothing of a hot, bad boy!  If you’re so inclined, do a google search of him in this series as there are some nice nude shots (this is one of my restrictions on doing what I want here, so I’m leaving the search to you. )

Happy Labor Day- take in a movie with a bad boy if you’re bored. I’m sure there’s either one near you or one on Netflix.

Badurday March 6, 2010

Although I am a complete history nerd and always have been, I write mostly contemporary romance.  I have several reasons.  One is that I have issues with the way women were treated and held back from their dreams in times past (Yeah.  I know, I should mine those feelings for some kick butt story). The other major reason is pure laziness.  I don’t want the “Historical police” to come after me for using the wrong language for the time (although Sayde would probably say that I should go for it due to my distaste for contractions).  I have written one historical but have been told it’ll never sell because it is based in 1920.  I couldn’t help it. It was a story that had to be told.  But, I digress from the topic of my post.  AND I know you are all saying, this is all well and good, SFCatty, but get with it already.  Where’s the bad boy and why are you telling us all this crap? Ok.  Ok.  Have some patience, I’m telling you all this because you may be shocked at my choice of genre today.

There was a show on BBC America last summer (and season two will be on this summer) that was just a wonderful little six episode show. The name of it is Being Human.  The story is about a vampire named Mitchell, a werewolf named George and a ghost named Annie.   Mitchell is trying to quit his blood addiction cold turkey and George is fighting his werewolf tendencies.  They decide to move into a flat together to try to live as humanly as possible.  The flat they move into is haunted by Annie.  She was murdered there.  She’s thrilled that they can see her.  It is a fun premise.  The funniest part is that the vampire and the werewolf both work in a hospital.  Mitchell is dead sexy (pun intended) and tempted by all the blood in the hospital.  I highly recommend this and you can download it to your I-Pod from www.BBCamerica.com.

Mitchell is played by Aiden Turner.  A fine Irish lad. He was in an episode of The Tudors and he has a show coming on BBC called Desperate Romantics which I hope will be aired here as well.  Enjoy:
