Shameless Summer Blog Hop!
Thank you to Jen at Red Hot Books, Brie at Romance Around the Corner & Michelle at Michelle’s Book Blog for hosting this hop!
So, I’m not the most inspired of bloggers and now I feel pressure to write something for this hop. All I can really think to share (and this is how my mind works) is how I was driving home from work the other day (a long, tedious daily torture) when I saw a man driving a motorcycle. Okay, I know they’re not safe, they’re called organ-donors, etc. blah blah. I know all that, and I still think they’re sexy as hell. With the right guy driving. (caveat).
This guy looked pretty good. Black helmet. Black leather jacket (yum). Faded jeans. Sneakers and no-show socks.
Woah. Wait a sec. Really?
I looked again. Yep. Several inches of bare, boney ankle showing above the tennies. Huh.
Maybe it’s just me, but ankles are one of those body parts I view as more of a feminine asset than a man’s. For instance, I don’t often say “Hey! Check out the ankles on THAT guy!” It’s just not a body part I look for, until it’s prominently on display as it was with Motorcycle Dude. Another caveat – men in shorts with the whole lower leg on display IS attractive. Just the ankle? Not so much.
So here’s my question – what are your thought? Are mankles (man+ankles, get it?) sexy? Or am I just odd? (no wait -don’t answer that last bit). Are there other manly parts that aren’t so “manly” to you? Tell me in the comments and enjoy the hop! Giveaway information follows.
If you’re new to this site, I write the Kathleen Turner series. Romantic Suspense involving a young woman (Kathleen) living and working in Indianapolis, and two Alpha males both drawn to her, though for different reasons. Kathleen’s your normal, average kind of girl. She doesn’t hunt vampires, cast magic spells or see dead people. Blane Kirk and Kade Dennon are your basic red-blooded hunks, each with a dangerous past, who happen to also be brothers. They don’t fear the full moon, have an unhealthy appetite for O Positive, or call another solar system home. Kathleen becomes entangled with both of them in not only life-threatening situations, but in her heart as well.
There are two books in this series currently (NO TURNING BACK and TURN TO ME). There will be a total of five. Book three will be released this Christmas. For this hop, I’ll be giving away free print or ebook copies (winner’s choice – though print is restricted to Cont. US) of the first two books. To enter, please leave your email address below.
Update: Contest is now closed. The winner (chosen by picking a number in my head and then seeing who was that commenter – very high-tech, I know) is Diane Sallans! Thanks to everyone who entered!
