Hosted by Readers Confession
Since we are making up all of our own playgrounds for Cupid...tell us who you would love to have Cupids arrow hit for you!!
If there is a list of them and you want a harem that's okay too. :-P Who would you pick and why? Do they have anything in common?
Cupids arrow? 
*Sigh*
At last, my heart is taken. 
 I wouldn't want Cupid hunting down another guy on my behalf.
However, back in my hay day, I may have lusted after one fictional character or two.
So I'll hand the question of the hour over to the author of today's novel.
 
 
Heroes and Hunks
As an author, I'm naturally in love with all the heroes I create for all my books, but being quite fickle towards my fictional characters, I'm always most drawn to my latest hero. Kethan Hilliard, the hero in A Fall of Silver, is my particular favorite because he combines so many of the things that draw women to men. (He's also an awful lot like my husband in terms of character, which makes him doubly attractive to me.)
Kethan is a “reformed” very bad boy which means he's got that terribly sexy vibe without the annoyance of having to work on his transformation, myself. Sure that means I'm lazy, but there you are. He is also a good listener and can read people really well. If I were the love of his life, I could count on that to save me the trouble of explaining just why I suddenly lost my temper with him, and who wouldn't love that? He is also extremely intelligent and I'm a sucker for intelligence, particularly combined with a sense of humor. That's a killer combo for me.
He can also cook! Yes, that's right--he makes a scrumptious chicken curry in A Fall of Silver (which happens to be my favorite dish) and who wouldn't like that? Not to mention that he's a neat housekeeper and completely housebroken. Sigh. Frankly, I can't imagine a better guy to have hanging around, protesting his undying love for me.
So if I could have Cupid shoot his arrow at someone, it would definitely be Kethan. And I just noticed that pretty much everything I've said reveals more about me than Kethan, because it all boils down to one thing: I'm chronically lazy. Having a guy like Kethan would save me an awful lot of “relationship” effort, leaving me free to write more.
Hmm. Maybe I should have made a New Year's resolution to stop being so lazy, but I was just too, uh, busy this year to make any resolutions.

Kethan promises peace and redemption for both vampires and humans in exchange for an end to the slaughter, but Quicksilver knows that’s not going to happen.
Someone is killing both humans and vampires, and sweet words aren’t going to end the nightmare.As events spiral out of control, terrible secrets from Quicksilver’s past awaken, and she’s forced to turn to Kethan to prevent more deaths. This time however, she’s determined not to make the same mistakes and with Kethan’s help, she hopes to silence the horror, forever.


Excerpt from A Fall of Silver
When she glanced up, his dark eyes caught her gaze. She didn't notice his body tense until it was too late. He grabbed her wrist in a single, smooth movement, catching her off guard. The warm, human strength of his hand enveloping hers surprised her, delaying her recognition of the unrelenting strength of his grip.
"What are you doing?" She jerked her arm, but he didn't release her. Instead, he  pried the whip handle out of her hand. Then his brown eyes caught her gaze again and held it with the intensity of a master vampire.
Her eyelids fluttered in an attempt to break the connection. She wanted to look away, she had to, but couldn't force herself to look away. After a breathless moment, she stepped back. Her left hand tightened on her second whip. She had a spare--a third whip--and she wouldn't be caught by surprise again.
He couldn't control her. No one could. Never again.
Kethan threw the whip handle to Jason, allowing him gingerly to unwrap the silvery monofilament coil from around his neck.
"What are you doing?" Her voice rose shrilly as Jason fumble with the unfamiliar weapon.
Kethan barely glanced at her as he wrapped a handkerchief around his bleeding hand. "Defusing a difficult situation."
"Watch out! She's got another one!" Jason stammered, blinking rapidly as if on the verge of tears. He fumbled and dropped the whip when a single drop of blood slid down his neck. "She broke the truce." He stared at his clan leader, the vampire he had called "Sutton."
In a blur of movement, Sutton circled Kethan. Before the humans could react, he stood at Quicksilver's back, one hand gripping her upper arm, the other forcing her head to the right.
