I confess. I read paranormal romance novels. I love J.R. Ward, Christine Feehan, Gena Showalter, Lyndsay Sands….and many others. I love them! But. . . .
I have “Liked” a page on Facebook called, “I Love Vampire Novels.” I get an email every week with introductions to different authors and novels. Some are free downloads, some are discounted. They also show up in my newsfeed with cutsie sayings, questions, etc.
Tonight, they posted the following question: “Which fictional character would you most like to be stuck on a desert island with…?” Interesting.
I could not think of a single one. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Not a one of them.
While I love the characters, I find them lacking. None of the guys really seem real. Seriously, how many men are really built at 6’5″, 250 lbs and all muscle with long flowing hair? And honestly? That doesn’t really appeal to me.
I know, I’m probably weird, but that’s nothing unusual.
I like the female lead characters. I like their spunk, their determination, their confidence. I like to pretend that I am them. I never pretend that I’m married to the lead male character. Honestly, they just really don’t do anything for me. But the women? What I would give to feel like they do! To BE them! I don’t need or want the money, or the clothes, or the mansion. I just want to look in the mirror and see them instead of me.
So how do I answer the question posed? I still have no idea. Though seriously, if I were going to hang out with any of them, it would be Nix. She’s nuts (Hence her nickname, Nucking Futs Nix, please pardon the phrasing, but it belongs to the author, not me). She will say anything. Do anything. She is fearless. She is AWESOME!!!
So, I guess, if I were going to be stuck on a desert island with anyone, it would be Nix. Life would never be dull with her around. Seriously, she is the gal you wake up next to in jail, who says, “That was FUN! Let’s do it again!
