This week we’re talking about what Superheroine we would like to be and why. My superhero knowledge is rather limited, so I decided to go with two kick-ass ladies I always enjoy watching.
First up: Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow
I love the way she kicks butt, her one-liners and the way she reduces men to gibberish with just one look.
Secondly: Xena the Warrior Princess
She was the first woman I saw who could kick butt, who saved herself AND her friends and did not require a man to protect her. I love her relationship with Gabrielle and seeing her with Hercules wasn’t half bad either;). And she looks amazing in the worst armour ever.
Who is your Superheroine, your Lady in Charge?
I have to share some exciting news before moving on to the yummy part of this post;).
Danger by Dalliance, my erotic historical with steampunk elements, released last week. Come by my blog by end of day today and comment for a chance to win either a steampunk inspired necklace and earrings or a free copy of the book. Your chances are very good;).
Sarah Rigdon is desperate. Penniless with taxes due, she can either beg mercy from the ruthless tax collector or turn to the last man she wants to ask for help. Archer Latimer stirs desires no proper lady would ever admit to. Though their meetings always end in quarrels, she can’t deny the heat between them. When he agrees to help, Sarah thinks her luck has turned. But she should have known nothing with Archer is ever easy.
Archer and his lover Warren Dorvee have spent years searching for the right woman to complete their family. Both believe luscious Sarah is the one and now have a chance to pursue her. After all, the price of Archer’s help is for Sarah to pose for Warren’s latest painting. Nude.
But trust has to be earned and a crisis in London threatens their love. The three must navigate through lust, lies and secrets or risk being torn apart forever.
Inside Scoop: Contains m/m, GLBT and ménage.
Now onto the delicious part: I went through a phase when I read everything that wasn’t nailed down about the different pantheons Greek, Roman, Norse, Egyptian, Japanese, it didn’t matter. But I got frustrated with their behaviour. The majority of them appear to be selfish and only interested in things that entertain them. It seemed as if the poor human who got involved in one of their ploys had to struggle to stay alive and usually ended up worse than they started;).
Still, that doesn’t mean I cannot enjoy a fine specimen of a God and the delicious actors who play them:
Kevin McKidd as Poseidon and Sean Bean as Zeus in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.
Nathan Fillion as Hermes in Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters.
(if you haven’t seen this movie, see if youtube has the scene with Hermes. He makes a number of inside jokes that leave his fans in stitches;)
Kevin Sorbo as Hercules…even if he is just a demi-god;)
Of course, I couldn’t leave without mentioning Tom Hiddleston as Loki or *drumroll please*
Chris Hemsworth as Thor…he really should burn all his shirts;).
Who is your favourite TV or movie god?
