Villains and Darkness

As it’s Halloween and the scary things tend to come out of the closets and attack at night, I thought I’d write a little something about the villains featured in my books.

I’ve featured homophobic arseholes like Walter Debussy and Roy Parsons in ‘Stripped Bare’. They give poor Shane Templar a very hard time and not in the way he likes. Shane ends up in a coma in hospital thanks to Roy and his basebell bat. In ‘Saving Alexander’ we have flame haired Eric Rossi, who starts out as an alright guy, then becomes a little too possessive of Alexander Montgomery and causes him a lot of pain -physical and emotional. Eric literally wields that whip with a little too much personal pleasure and Alex suffers with pain far more than he envisaged. Especially when he has to tell the man he loves to leave him from fear he will be hurt too.

In Worth Keeping, tormented Nick Mathers has to cope with a stalkerish ex-boyfriend, Brad, coming after him and his lover, Owen, at the lighthouse he lives in. Luckily they manage to turn the tables and Owen is pretty handy with a paperweight, but not until Nick has been reminded of his horrific past as threats of physical and sexual harm come back to torment him.

And then of course there is Blair Malcolme in Love and Punishment, probably the most charming and dangerous of them all. Seemingly normal and an attentive boyfriend to Marshall, he is nothing more than a psychopathic killer who uses and abuses people before he slits their throats. What he does to the man he supposedly cares for, Marshall, is sick and twisted and I’ve been told many people wince and clench their bum cheeks together when reading this scene. Sorry, all 🙂

I love the introduction of a villain, the person we love to hate as we cheer the lead men on to defeat them and help the villains get their come-uppance. It’s a great ending to a story when those who cause suffering and harm are dispatched in whatever way the author deems fair.

So tell me – who is YOUR favourite villain? Leave a comment below letting me know and I’ll choose two random winners for the giveaway I’m offering below.

Winter Wonderland Blog Hop- Jan 16th to 19th

Sexy athletic body

This blog hop post is all about asking, “What makes a hero in movies and books wonderful to the point your toes curl?”

That’s a bit of a leading question for me. It doesn’t take much to make my toes curl and give me a warm feeling in the pit of my stomach. And believe me, I see a lot of pictures of gorgeous, sexy half and fully naked men in various states of undress and arousal. In fact ‘man poker’ has become a bit of thing on my Facebook page when the urge strikes. You know, I raise you one man picture, then someone comes along and bets me a picture of two men together, then another posts three men doing God knows what and …well, you get the idea.
I digress. Whether it be a book or a movie, I like my men dark, confident, and intelligent. Gerard Butler material, or the gorgeous Craig Olejnik from the TV series, ‘The Watcher.’ I like them tough, with great eyebrows, mesmerising eyes and a tight backside. I like cheek and wit, compassion and tenderness and a little bit of pure attitude.

I like men who respect themselves, who are professional and committed to their profession and yet able to laugh at themselves. I like a man to be emotional and show his feelings just a little bit. That wet gleam in the eye as tears threaten, the swallowing of the throat, the flicker of the eyes – it makes me shiver all over. I’ve read books where my own throat swells and tears appear as a hero shows his vulnerability, his hurt and you feel it deep inside, feel his pain because a scene has been so well written and you get so immersed in it.
So this is what makes my toes curl. What floats your boat?

GIVEAWAY !!
