The hero's name is Lord Hayden Rothwell. Ms. Hunter gave a wonderful description of him on page...
Dark hair, unruly as if the brushes had been forgotten this morning, framed a handsome face composed of strong, chiseled planes. Signs of fatigue dulled his deeply set, midnight-blue eyes. Strained forebearance tightened his square jaw and firmly set mouth...
So, why is it I spent a good part of the book visualizing Craig T. Nelson from the old TV sitcom Coach. I kept waiting for Jerry VanDyke to come running in screaming "HAYDEN, HAYDEN!!"
And then somehow the blue jean wearing "Coach" morphed into Mr. Incredible when the voice started to interfer. I guess the midnight-blue eye color might match, but that's about it--LOL.
I hate doing this. Hayden's a rather distinctive name, I don't know anyone with it. If the name had been William or Bill, Ben or David, I'd probably not have visualized anything.
I should be relieved I didn't visualize Hugh Grant and Lilith (Frasier's prissy ex-wife) while reading Meljean's Demon Angel.
Does this happen because I'm not fully engaged in the story? Hmmm, I'll have to think about it.
