I've Been Inspired!

I know exactly how my next hero is going to look. Just like the waiter hubby and I had at the Longhorn tonight. Yep. He had the look. Dark and scruffy looking, in a sexy sort of way. He fit right in with the western decor of the place, too. Tight jeans, boots, and a white shirt with the sleeves turned back. His jet black hair was collar length and shone like smooth black glass beneath the lighting. And when he smiled that sexy smile, there was a gleam of mischief in his eyes.

I know, you wouldn't expect to find hero material waiting tables. So while we were sitting there, enjoying hubby's birthday dinner, my imagination began to run wild. All of a sudden he wasn't just a waiter anymore. He was actually a cop working undercover. Looking to bust up a sex slavery ring. No, he's a bounty hunter looking for the fugitive waitress...bodyguard protecting the rebellious heiress...oh, whatever! It doesn't matter. He would fit into any role:)

Ever notice how the heroes in romance novels lead anything but mundane lives? I mean, they have to be big, exciting!

Debbie...Too bad you didn't take a picture ~ he could have been Monday's Man Candy;) ....Nancy

Well, I did think about it Nancy but I don't know how I would have done it without him knowing:)

Nancy Bristow said...

Debbie...Easy. Let him know. Ask him, if just for fun, would he mind posing for a picture that you would like to post (with or without his name) on a saucy author's blog that you participate in...that his photo would be a prime example of one of the many alpha males that she writes a variety of careers.

It would be even more interesting to hear his answer to the question, "What line of work are you interested in pursuing eventually?"

Bet he'd do for you:) Whether you fess up to being that particular author would be up to you. He'd probably be flattered that an author requested his picture as inspiration:)....Nancy

LOL...sounds like a great pickup line! But good idea. Next time I go to the Longhorn I'll bring my camera just in case I run into him. In fact, I just might keep it in my purse. Never know when I'll come across hero material.
