Tidbit Tuesday: Hero Inspiration...

I had one hell of a day yesterday. Today was better, but still not out of the woods.

Now what does an author of romance do when feeling down/needs a pick-me-up? She goes looking for the hero, of course! Except, sometimes, we need the fantasy to really get us flying high. That's when we fall on the current hero, the man we're writing about, whom we're two-thirds in love with already, and whom we're convincing the heroine to fall in love with completely.

My current WIP is a category romance featuring an analytical heroine who meets the bloke-next-door and push coming to shove, has no other option but fall for this man when he comes to the rescue of this different kind of modern damsel in distress.

Like many authors, I have an 'inspiration' for each hero, and this one is no exception. The man in question is... the sexy, hunky, yummy Jared Padalecki. Yes, I'm a Supernatural junkie.

So scroll down and enjoy. There's something for every taste and every level of 'liking' of this handsome hunk.

If you're pressed for time, the goodies in a short vid (the iconic Supernatural towel-only shot is on at 1:15!

If you've got time for more... :)

Intensely hot:

Getting on the dark-er side (Supernatural fans adore...) And at 5:52 on this vid, you get the Sam smile *swoooon*

And what the hype about Supernatural's Sam is all about... The man himself talks!

And finally, this one is traying into not safe for anything but personal, private viewing pleasure... The vid's embed code has been disabled but this is better watched, ahem, in private... More sexy Jared, in the love scene with the werewolf, and the towel shot... :) And when you do watch this one, listen to the song. That's my love theme for the current WIP (more on that in another Tidbit Tuesday posting!)

So I hope this made your day, and made the rest of the week bearable *wink*

From Mauritius with love,

Thanks for sharing!

Now that's inspiration for a hero if I ever saw one. ;)

Thanks for sharing.

Had no idea how horrible your day had gone yesterday. Some days are just that way, aren't they? And then your blog today is comes across to me as a way to jump up and say wahoo! because inspiration speaks in a handsome form. Yowza! You amaze me, Zee.

Erin Kern said...

He's a hot one. Good choice, Z. I've never seen the show but I definitely know who he is.

Zee Monodee said...

Lol ladies! He's a cutie, innit?

Trish - snow and cold all fade away when you look at him. :)

Lynn - that's my Jamie, allright. I realize I haven't sent you the character pics for this story. Need to rectify that.

Sheri - the perfect way to bounce back: ogle some hunky man. :)

Erin - he's definitely one to know! *wink*

OK, I have a question? Are men getting younger or am I getting...no, no--don't answer that!!

What a cutie he is. :)

Unknown said...

The Cougar in me is salivating. He's about the hottest thing on TV, isn't he? Throw the vulnerable look in his eyes and you want to keep him. Thanks for sharing, Z. I looove Supernatural. xoxo

Brenda said...

Zee, oh wow, I was drooling as I watched all the vids. Sam is too hot for words.
Thank you for posting these--I needed them too.
Sorry to hear your day yesterday was so crappy. I hope today is much better!!!

Zee Monodee said...

Lol Joann! I know exactly what you mean! I've always gone for the older guys but now find myself thinking of guys the same age as me, or *gulp* younger... oh shame! :)

Zee Monodee said...

Ednah - totally THE hottest thing to hit a screen , big or small, in a loooong time! I love the vilnerable Sam look, like "I don't wanna be evil but I've got it in me". He just about breaks my heart when he does that. XOXO

Zee Monodee said...

Brenda, did you see the last one? Definitely inspiration for a love scene writing! *wink* He's just too good to be true... and totally married too, sigh. :)

Today is better, thanks. Some days are just plain awful, the universe conspiring against you.
