If ever there was a perfect image to reflect a scene from Hard as Mason, it would have to be this photo of David Gandy. As I write the second book of the Sultry Tides series, I can’t help but think of this super stud model’s image as the embodiment of Mason’s character.
Yes, I confess, Mr. Gandy is my celebrity crush…and why the hell not? It’s difficult not to swoon when looking into his eyes. Frankly, I don’t think I’d be able to speak if I ever met the man. I might feel weak in the knees like Laura did when Mason…oh, you’ll have to read the book to find out what happened.
I write contemporary romance because it is downright fun; especially when imagining someone like Mr. Gandy in a sexy scene accented by bodies colliding, passionate kisses, and guttural moans. You must admit, he serves as perfect muse to inspire words to flow; words, quickened pulse, tingling sensations…*sigh* (whoops, hubby just walked into the room. Back to the scene…)
Okay, so I know David has blue eyes, but damn, don’t they look green in this photograph?… Just like Mason’s gorgeous eyes. Add the sweater on the handsome Mr. Gandy, and…well, read the following excerpt from Hard as Mason, and you’ll understand what I mean.
