Okay, so I did my usual. I poofed. I can't help it! I've got so much going on right now, new job, trying to write on book two, decisions to be made about my future ... but who wants to hear about all that boring stuff?

I know what I want to hear about.  BAD BOYS!  Oh hell yeah! Bad boys rock my socks whether they are the hero or villian ... or what about a hero villian? Either way ...

So, I got asked to participate in this seriously kick ass blog hop, and I quickly agreed. How could I not?? 

Oh you know you love them. Those "bad boys" of romance.
And now we're celebrating them and all their naughty deliciousness.

Which "bad boy" revs your motor? Is he a hero? Villain? A secondary character?
Show those boys off June 7th-June 17th in the "Bad Boys" of Romance Giveaway Hop hosted by
herding cats & burning soup, Rantings of a Reading Addict and author Blue Remy!

Here's Blue's Fave Bad Boy
Interviewed by Tobi at Forget the Housework, I'm Reading.....

The strong scent of coffee was lingering in the kitchen as I stood in the middle of it, unable to put my finger on part of the missing piece of the puzzle. Something wasn’t right. I sent the hubby off with the kids, the coffee was brewing, and the crumble cake was on the table, as was the ash tray.

A quick glance at my reflection in the refrigerator told me that I was looking spot on. Make up was tight, hair was perfection, and clothes were fitting just right … “Crap!” I still had on my darn fuzzy slippers! A mad dash to the bedroom was the quick fix that would remedy that. Until I heard the knock.

I admit it. My. Heart. Stopped. What???? Duncan is hot!

Smoothing down my long-sleeved-tee, I strutted out like I was the Queen Bee. I’m not going to lie girls, he IS the dish. I saw him through the glass of my back door, his cowboy hat slung low over the brooding eyes, full lips that beg to be kissed … just makes a woman want to pucker up and get one.

What was he wearing? Oh, he was yummy. He pulled off the cowboy hat to reveal those blue green eyes that I SWEAR can see right to your soul, five o’clock shadow that dusted his chin and cheeks. And a smile that was crooked as the day is long. Did I forget to mention the tight t shirt and Wranglers? Dear Lord have mercy, ladies… When he turned to set his hat on the table and I got a full view of his butt .. Well, you get the idea.

I didn’t even bother to ask him if he wanted coffee, the poor guy looked worn out, so I just got him some. I gathered he took it black, and let me tell you, he was full of Southern hospitality.

Tobi H – You do take it black right?

Duncan O – Just like I like my women, with a bite. Thank you.

TH – [laughs] So I take it that Raven has a lot of bite then?

DO – That’s putting it mildly. [Slight smirk]

TH – [trying not to drool] How do you like working with the paranormal community?

DO – [sips coffee and sets it aside to light cigarette] That’s a loaded question, Tobi. Not fair. Play nice. I like working with them and I don’t like working with them. Try policing vampires who are PMS’ing twenty-four seven, or trying not to hurt the feelings of a faery because you might say the wrong thing. [he shrugs slightly, and leans back in his chair, running hand over his bald head] On the other hand, it’s an ideal job. I work with several people that would give me the shirt off of their back if I needed it, at the drop of the hat. I would take a bullet for any of them and not think twice.

TH – Valentino PMS’s? I can’t see that!

DO – [HUGE eye roll] He’s the worst of the bunch.

TH – He’s just … [unable to find the words]

DO – [groans] Please, don’t… I don’t want to lose my McGriddle.
TH – [bursts out laughing] Alright, you win. Tell us something about a few members of the Murder that no one knows.

DO – [scratches at the five o’clock shadow, eyes narrowing slightly] Hmm, good question. Tamerlane has a thing for old black and white movies. We’re talking old movies, Casablanca shit. Let’s see here. [pauses] Malestrom bites his nails when he is nervous.

TH – Pretty interesting stuff. I’d never have thought that Tamerlane was into movies like that or Malestrom being the nervous type. [I have to admit, I was trying not to stare at him or drool too much] So, what exactly is going on right now in the paranormal world? Rumor has it that Raven is up against some pretty terrifying stuff.

DO – If I tell you, I’d have to kill you. [said with a straight face….. then cracked a smile, that never met his eyes] We’re searching for a killer who is murdering her guardians of the Gates of the Yggdrasil. I didn’t believe this shit was real until I witnessed it, but it’s there, and this is one sick freak. Every time he kills a guardian, she is one step closer to death. I just pray to whoever is listening that we get to him before she dies, because God help him if she does.

TO – [somehow I knew he would do more than just kill the murderer if Raven were to die] I know you’re busy, I appreciate you dropping by. I hope we can do this again. Did you have anything else you might want to add?

DO – [He tossed the cup of coffee back and put out the cigarette.] I don’t want to leave her (Raven) alone for very long. [small smirk] Not like she can’t take care of herself, so she says. Anyway, we got your back, Tobi. Just give us a call if you need anything.

I watched him as he scooped up his hat, placed it on his head and pulled it low over his eyes. He swept out the door like he was on a mission, and disappeared into the daylight. I must admit I was left with some unanswered questions, but I am saving those for Tamerlane when he arrives. Yes, you read right. But, that’s another interview for another day.
I took this pic when Duncan wasn't expecting........
I'll probably hear about this later.......
