I’m excited to be part of this blog hop sponsored by H.D. Thomson which will be running from January 16th - 19th. I’m giving away a $5 Amazon gift card to one lucky person who leaves a comment.
For the hop we were asked to answer this question : “What makes a hero in movies and books wonderful to the point your toes curl?”
One of my favorite movies (and books) is The Princess Bride. At first I fell in love with farmboy Wesley’s whole “As you wish” thing. He was so sweet and loving towards Buttercup. But that’s not the curl my toes part.
After being on the high seas as a pirate Wesley came back a yummy alpha male. Able to drink poison, beat an expert at swordplay, fell a giant, and cheat death all for true love (not 'to blaith'). He left Buttercup as a weakling and returned a hero. For me it’s the transition that makes a hero so – mmm mmm good. Him becoming more than he was to reach his full potential. This makes my toes curl.
Yes, I’ll add that if he’s tall, muscular and handsome, it a plus.
Who is one of your favorite hero’s in a book or movie?
Defending her family – no problem. Recalling past lives – maybe just a small problem. Taking a chance on love again – well…
Jasmine Gibson has her world turned upside down when she meets gorgeous Sean Taylor. He’s the first man she’s been attracted to since her fiancé dumped her two years ago. But when the disturbing daydreams start, Jasmine begins to fear that her actions in a past life may have finally caught up with her.
Sean finds it impossible to stay away from Jasmine even though he can’t shake the inexplicable feeling of betrayal, simmering deep inside him every time he sees her.
To complicate things, someone is out to hurt Jasmine and every time she and Sean are together, the police have to be called. Even if Jasmine can make Sean trust her, the two of them may not stay alive long enough to enjoy their love this time around.
