It's official

I have hopelessly fallen in love with my hero in Scandinavian Scandal. Now I am assuming this is a good thing, at least that's what I tell my husband, who finds all this still rather amusing. Not sure how he will feel once he has read chapter five mind you... Ahem.

This is after all the man, who has been known to express jealousy at my hopeless crush on one of  Charlaine Harris' characters in her hugely successful Sookie Stakehouse series of books. For those of you that have read them, well how can you resist Eric? And if you haven't discovered them yet, then start reading!

Anyhow, I digress slightly, easy to do when I start thinking of sexy vampires and back to Sven. As someone pointed out to me, if I don't fall in love with the hero of my book, then how can I expect anyone else to do so? Would this reasoning work on hubbie do you think? I have my doubts, but we'll find out I guess...

On a  different note, I am off just after lunch to pursue the other passion of my life, all things breastfeeding at the La Leche League  annual workshop in Newcastle.  Really looking forward to hearing Carlos Gonzales' Talk and generally speaking, soak up the LLL atmosphere. So good to be surrounded by like minded people, who value the nursing relationship between  mother and child as much as Tj and I still do. Not that he is coming with me this time. He is quite happy to stay home with daddy and his siblings and I will have a hotel room all to myself tonight. Pure bliss!

I am planning an early night with one of my favourite M&B authors, and copious amounts of chocolate ;-)

See you all when I get back. 


  1. Oh Eric! I loved Bill to start with... (and still do really) just because he's actually a gentleman, and really does 'love' Sookie. But OMG Eric! I'm in LOVE! I think my favourite was Dead To The World... where he lost his memory!

    Just watching True Blood to sort of compare. Glad I read the books first, because I wouldn't want to ruin those... And loving it!

    But aren't the books so much better than Twilight? Bella got on my nerves, and Sookie has not once asked to be made a vamp! Go girl!

    As for falling for your hero... well, you've got to find him irresistible to want to write about him, and for your heroine to fall in love too. So no, not abnormal! I agree, if you don't find him gorgeous then how do you expect your readers too.

    Keep writing!

    (And have you really got 8 kids?)

  2. It's okay to be in love with your male lead. I don't think I am in love with mine which probably explains why the story is evolving in a very awkward fashion.

    Don't know who this Eric is but if we're talking vampires, Damon from the Vampire Diaries is a loveable baddie and so hot. *fans self*

  3. MMM Eric without his memory :-) My favourite book too! And yes much better then Twilight. And finally yep to the eight kids, madness is me :-P

    Damon is pretty cool too Alexandra, though Eric wins hand down, lol!
