I'm having FITS trying to cast my heroine for my new novella.
I have a hero. Of course I had a difficult time finding him too. I wanted a manly man. Someone who could go toe to toe with my heroine, Kelley. I also wanted someone who appears confident. Charming. Funny. And yet with this side that we can see that is just under the surface, that he's protecting. SO my hero is:
Now my heroine is a little different. She's pretty much taken over running the ranch, and she's capable. She knows it. She's a bit of a control freak, a damned hard worker, and hates failing at anything. She sure as hell hates asking the hero for help. Can I find a picture? Nope.
So your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to help me find a manifestation of those inner qualities as well as the physical characteristics of...not soft, yet pretty...her face has angles that show a beauty within the strength. And her glory is her hair...most of the time she keeps it up in a braid and under a hat. She's definitely a jeans and cotton shirt kind of girl. But when she lets it down...it's a long mass of golden curls that will momentarily take Mack's breath away.
Go ahead and e-mail me your suggestions at email@example.com, and then we could make it fun and I can post the contenders!
