Step 1. Find your name. That is the order you choose in.
Step 2. When it's your turn, “Call” ONE hero in the comments. (Anybody from all of literature, but you can’t have somebody who is already picked!

Who will you pick? Tracy gets to start. Tracy, leave your hero’s name in the comments. Then Thea gets to go. And so on. After this round, everybody will have one hero, and draft round 2 will start (at Sarai's). At the end of 7 drafts, everybody will have a group of 7 heroes to bring. Yes, trades are permitted.

Don't worry about obsessively monitoring this thing. If you don't call your hero in 24 hours, we'll skip you.

RULES:
• No picking out of order. Once the woman above you has chosen, it’s your turn. (Not before!)
• Trades are permitted, but be clear about announcing the results in the comments or email so your host doesn’t have to play sleuth.
• If it’s your turn and we don’t hear from you for 24 hours, sorry, you’re skipped. But you can email your host ahead of time with your pick.
• Latecomers: SORRY,  we wish everybody could play, but there has now been a moratorium placed on add-ons, due to the record-keeping nightmare this will soon become. 


ROUND 2: (now over) Hosted at Sarai’s
ROUND 3: (now over) Hosted at lisabea's.
ROUND 4: (starting MONDAY!) Hosted at MaryKate's
ROUND 5: Hosted at Christine's
ROUND 6: Hosted at Katie(babs) & Kristie(J)'s
ROUND 7: Hosted at Sula's!

Christine said...

I'm SIXTEENTH! Yikes! I bet my TOP 5 will all be taken before its even my turn! Oh noooes! I need a back up list! ;)

Carolyn Jean said...

No, because in round 2 you will be fourth!

The order is reversed each round!

Christine said...

Thanks CJ! You're the best.

Katie(babs) said...

I am lusky 13 heh heh.

lisabea said...

Should I post something?

I'm 11. In maturity as well. And I'm going to shock and astound with my choices.

Carolyn Jean said...

Sure, you can post. I posted to Tracy's to alert her. These rounds could really stretch out.

Katie(babs) said...

LB, Michael better not be on your list!!

Carolyn Jean said...

Or Eric. Or else I am going to pick Nate just to spite you. And I will use him casually.

lisabea said...

::whistling::

Now KB why would I do such a thing?

Aren't you all bringing vampires who will poof in the sunlight, keep you up all night, and drain your blood while not being able to refill your supply of iron supplements? Vampires and desert islands: it's a good thing.

::whistling::

lisabea said...

hey thems fighin words cj.

although using nate casually is on my to do list...

Thea said...

I'm number 2! Wahoo! Now ladies, I'll have you know I am open to accepting bribes. And I'm not above "sitting" on a hero to get bribes. I do this in my fantasy basketball league aaaaall the time *devilish grin*

Sarai said...

LB you are so going to be mad at me ;0)

lisabea said...

NooooooOOOOooooooOOOOOoooo

don't do IT. NOOOoooooOOOOo

Carolyn Jean said...

Oh, Thea! That is so clever!

I have a sleeper pick planned for round 2 or 3 that nobody will think of, and everyone will be jealous when they see.

Katie(babs) said...

anyone picks my number one, I will tell the ARC fairy to ignore you from now on.

lisabea said...

Don't look at me. I have yet to meet your number one.


I am tweaked that Sarai's going to take...I won't say it. I'll think positive thoughts.

Carolyn Jean said...

You could always have Thea sit on him.

Katie(babs) said...

Sarai is a sneaky wench like that.
LB did you get my emails?

Sarai said...

*rubbing hands in glee* You never know, you just never know!

Thea said...

LB--bribery works wonders. I like a good wheat beer...you figure out how to get a stash on the island, and we are in business ;)

Tracy said...

Woohoo - I get to pick first! Alright...first pick....Zsadist.

I know many will be throwing things - that's ok cuz I'll have Z to protect me! lol *blows cherry*

Katie(babs) said...

I stole the rum out of Lisa's bra and my pants are the biggest one on the island.
How's that for a bribe?

JenB said...

Sooooo...have we started yet? I wanna get busy playin' in the sand with my sexxxy hero.

lisabea said...

thea~all i have are man love photos.

Tracy~I am really concerned about the welfare of all vampires on the island!

Sarai~ So it's not my bff right? right? right?

Thea said...

Ooh! So it's my turn to pick?

Sorry ladies, bidding is closed! :p I'm taking Jamie Fraser. Something about the kilt, gets me every time.

Carolyn Jean said...

This is really suspenseful. I think Shannon is a teacher, so we may not hear from her until tonight!

JenB said...

Ok...I know y'all are totally gonna call me dense (I'm a Texan--we think a lil' bit diff'rently down here)...but what are we "doing" with the seven heroes we end up with? Are we gonna write stories?

Carolyn Jean said...

NOOOO. Thea! Brilliant, of course. Oh, WOW!!! Sula will not like this one bit.

lisabea said...

i will love them and hug them and squeeze them...

sula said...

um, how did I go from being number 2 to number 3? Cuz I was waiting on tracy and then I was going to call Jamie Frasier.

Just for that...I am now going to hold up the entire production. While I ponder. And rage. And angst. And stuff.

lisabea said...

so that's Rhage then, right?

Katie(babs) said...

I am going to build sand castles with me mens.
Or re-create the beach scene From Here to Eternity. :D

Carolyn Jean said...

Oh, sorry, Sula.

Tracy said...

Lisabea - there will be quite a few vampires on the island but we'll just live on rum and luuuuuuuuv!

Jenb - what will we do with them? Hmmm - I'm sure we can think of something.

Christine said...

I KNEW she was gonna pick Z. I just knew it. While I'm glad he'll be there... I wanted him on my team! *pout*

Katie(babs) said...

Are there any caves on the island? Store the vamp men in the caves till nighttime.

Carolyn Jean said...

Yes, we will need caves. Or maybe a large underground bunker. Maybe somebody needs to bring that BDB butler. Sula, maybe you could choose him. What is his name, Higgins?

Christine said...

Can I make a suggestion? When an island girl claims her hero, can she also name the book or series he's from? And author, too? I'd like to make this as educational as possible. ;p

Katie(babs) said...

Fritz is the butler. He can cook too!

Christine said...

Fritz.
LOL Higgins?

Tracy said...

CJ - definitely need Doggen!!! He'll have to serve the vamps in the cave/bunker and we can have the cabana boy for the rest of us.

Christine - sorry about Z, baby. Maybe I can send him over to your camp once in a while and you can pet his muscles.

Carolyn Jean said...

You are totally right. NEW RULE!

Carolyn Jean said...

Is Zsadist lover eternal?

Christine said...

No apologies necessary, Tracy. I know you're a good sharer. Hey... you interested in a threesome? ;)

Christine said...

Lover Awakened

Carolyn Jean said...

Just so you know, I'm recording the picks in real time because I'm here, but future hosts of rounds do NOT have to do that.

Ana said...

Oh man, what a great idea! *who can I pick?* *hyper*

Great choice Thea!!!!

Thea said...

Oh Sula, I'm sorry! I'm willing to share, maybe we could work out a schedule :p

Oh and so, from the new rule, Jamie's from Diana Gabaldon's Outlander.

Tracy said...

Just like Christine - In one breath she wants to make it as educational as possible and in the next talks about a threesome. That's my girl. Oh, and Christine...we'll chat. :)

Katie(babs) said...

someone said Threesome?
By this rate our island will be renamed Orgy Island.

Ana said...

Katie, did you have any doubts? *g*

Carolyn Jean said...

Nobody better rescue us.

Ana said...

I just realised I get to pick SEVEN men all for myself! *dies* I will be having octosomes with my own group. I so don't want to leave this island ever.

Sarai said...

Sula be a sport and pick already seriously I want to see what LB has to say about my menz!

Katie your pants are already rocking with love do you really want to add in the rum?

7 menz to myself and I don't know about this sharing thing...

Carolyn Jean said...

Sarai,
Shannon is after and I think she works as a teacher, so she may not visit until after work.

Tracy said...

CJ - Quick question - we do have some overlapping book choices with all these book lovers involved so how many rounds will there be??? Inquiring minds want to know...

Carolyn Jean said...

It doesn't matter what your book choices were.

You can pick ANY heroes from ANY book in all of literature. What books you personally brought do not matter.

Carolyn Jean said...

Oh, there will be 7 rounds, unless it fizzles out.

lisabea said...

Sarai will make me cry. I know it.
Prepare for spoilsport behaviour.

Sarai said...

LB I might go easy on you this round but we shall see on next one I am thinking of stuff you can bribe me with ;0)

Bridget Locke said...

So is it too late to get into this thing? I've seen it on all your blogs, but with the way things have been going lately I'm lucky I can concentrate! :) If so, let me know. If not, let me know. :) Maybe I can join y'all next time.

Carolyn Jean said...

I'm adding Tumperkin and Bridget

lisabea said...

YAY!!!!

Katie(babs) said...

More peeps mean more mens!!!

Tracy said...

ANY hero from ANY book? Oh my - this opens up so many options!!

Carolyn Jean said...

ANY!!

Unless they have already been picked.

Shannon said...

Did sula go yet? I wanna pick!!! (I'lo do this asap!)

Katie(babs) said...

Shannon has arrived!! Woot
I need to pick my man, whom on one will pick.

Shannon said...

Oh my, I have so many ideas of who I want to pick. Omg, how do i figure out who to pick first. Who can I afford to possibly lose out on? Do we share, or is this my own personal harem?

Katie(babs) said...

If you are willing to share Shannon, I won't mind.;)

Carolyn Jean said...

I'm sure Sula will pick soon. She needs time to recover from the devastating loss of Jamie.

Bridget Locke said...

Okay, so I'm a bit slow...what do I need to do? I got myself all confuzzled. :D

Carolyn Jean said...

Hey Bridget, welcome! When it's your turn, you pick one hero. See directions. It can't be a hero another person has taken! You go after Tumperkin. It could be a day or so.
You'll be first in round 2!!

sula said...

Ok, I am back. Believe it or not, they expect me to work at my job. heh.

I'm not recovered from the loss of Jamie but since thea has so nicely offered to share, I will do my best to soldier on.

In the spirit of throwing a spanner in the works and livening up the trading game, I choose...

Adrien - of the Adrien English series by the fabulous Josh Lanyon

Carolyn Jean said...

GASP!

lisabea said...

LE GASP!

MY BFF choses my BFF.

Oh someone stop the insanityyyyyyy

Shannon said...

Squeee! It's my turn!!!

Alrighty, my pick is..... Sam Donovan from Mr. Perfect (Linda Howard).


:D

Katie(babs) said...

Sula- sneaky wench. No Richard for you!

sula said...

heh. yep, I am evil like that. And yes, Richard for me. Didn't you know? He's hanging out on my blog. In his white shirt. *drool*

lb, you know I got your back, girl.

Sarai said...

Freakin sweet it's my turn!!! Um let me think on it....
I am going with Jake Riordan (From Fatal Shadows by Josh Lanyon)just b/c he's bi and because I would only want to shop with Adrien (and Adrien is already there so Sula and I can get the party started!)
See I'm a fair sport ;)

Katie(babs) said...

Sarai, we will have to keep you away from Lisabea on the island. She may try to steal him from you! :D

Sarai said...

No kidding but I am thinking that if Sula and I get together then we can charge a small fee for a peep show. What do you think Sula?

Tumperkin said...

Ooooh. Thanks for letting me in! I'm really confused though - and worried I'll hold you all up with my British waking hours (I'm going to bed in an hour!). CJ - I'll email a provisional hero to stick in the comments for me when I'm asleep if everyone else has gone by then. Ha!

sula said...

woohoo! 5pm, time to go home!

I think that Jake and Adrien will get the party started ahead of all of us. heh. oh man!

Carolyn Jean said...

T- go ahead and email me, but I have a feeling it will take until tomorrow to get to you!!

LesleyW said...

Oohh, just spotted this. I'm in the UK so will check first thing in the morning and see if it's my turn to vote.

Carolyn Jean said...

Hi Lesley!
Yay!

lisabea said...

I actually had to pull over on the side of the road to read that comment. I screamed: NOOOOOO>

I'm laughing my ass off that we are 5 place in and two of our men are a broken up couple. SPOILER.


Sarah is in New Zealand. I'll give her the heads up.

still laughing.

Carolyn Jean said...

Okay, I think it is six am in New Zealand or something. (And autumn!)

Ana said...

Girls, I live in England and it's time to go to bed! Since I am number 18 , it looks like I will have to post my choice tomorrow morning, when ya'll be sleeping *g* .

Carolyn Jean said...

No problem, English friends. It will take forever to get to you anyway.

naida said...

what a great idea :) reading your responses here...lol!

*eagerly awaiting my turn to pick a sexy hero for the island*

the first one I thought of would be too much of a prude for this island apparently! lol...so I'll have to think of another hero.

http://thebookworm07.blogspot.com/

Carolyn Jean said...

Naida,
I think the island could use a prude.

Sarai, there are NO SHOPS on this island. Only girls and books. and now, 5 heroes.

lisabea said...

And 2 of them will ignore us. And one will burst into flames.


We're really cooking now, girls!

Carolyn Jean said...

LOL And the remaining two are very frightened.

lisabea said...

I'm tempted to bring harry potter...

Carolyn Jean said...

I would like to bring that elf guy from Lord of the Rings.

Katie(babs) said...

Aren't we suppose to be castaways so that means no shops, bathrooms or blenders for our rum? I am drinking it straight from the bottle!!
Now you girls can't bring actors from the movies that you think look like the mens in your books. Even though Daniel aka Harry has grown to be quite a hunk. :D

lisabea said...

What is it about girls and that elf?

heh.

Tracy said...

I personally would take Aragon from LOTR...aka Viggo Mortenson...aka gorgeous!

Naida - Doesn't matter if your man is a prude - if he flips your switch, bring him!

Carolyn Jean said...

Well, if we run out of heroes from books, we can go to movies or TV, but it will have to be announced.

But if we do, I will have my elf. You will have your Aragon. A fine choice!

Katie(babs) said...

Kristie is going to kill me but I get dibs on Richard aka John Thorton and Guy.
*ducks back into her bat cave*

lisabea said...

Jack Sparrow.

And some dental floss.

Shannon said...

If we are going for TV land, then I claim Mick St. John. Oh, hot vampire detective (who can survive in the sun with enough blood)! That may mean I would have to sacrifice one of you as his dinner. Although being bitten by Mick would surely be a pleasure. I'm just saying. ;)

Of course, we are sticking to book heros. There are so many to choose from. I can't wait to see what hunk joins the island next!

LorelieLong said...

Dude I'd be totally hopping in on this bud I'm gonna be occupado shortly.

I do have a question, however: After y'all pick your men and take them to the island, are they bound to you in some way? Or can they declare themselves a free agent? In which case, me sneaking on the island after the draft and cherry picking seems a plausible option.

Carolyn Jean said...

Sorry, LL, they are bound to us, but we are a sharing bunch, so I think you could find yourself highly entertained. And there's always the library.

Rowena said...

Oh wow, this looks like so much fun! I'm so bummed that I missed out on it...

I'm loving reading all of these though, so it's just as fun for me to watch! =)

Great choice on Sam Donovan, LUBS HIM A LOT!

Samantha Kane said...

Where is Sarah?! I want to post my hero, right now! Ugh, I have a deadline to meet before I go to LA at the end of the month for Book Expo America . . . and I don't care! I'm doing this! Sarah . . . Sarah . . . Doesn't she hear me calling?

lisabea said...

Sarah is in New Zealand. I emailed her and she sort a got back to me...but I don't think she's followed the link to CJ's paradise.


Hey. I'm hoping that a certain problematic man will be on my list...name starts with a D Sam...who.could.it.be?

ag said...

um .. if it isn't too late, I picked my six since I'm really flying off to an island this afternoon.

Samantha Kane said...

Well, I'm working, (yeah, yeah, save it), I do that on occasion, you know. So I may not check again until tomorrow morning. I'll post then.

lb ~ D. gives good . . . everything. ;-) Highly recommended for extended desert island stays. Oh, and he's so smart he might be able to figure out the electricity problem.

Carolyn Jean said...

I'm going to do some regional shuffling. Samantha, give me 5 minutes.

Samantha Kane said...

Okay, I got the go ahead.

Doyle/The Queen's Darkness ~ Laurell K. Hamilton, Merry Gentry series.

I am so in lust . . . er, I mean I really like this fictional hero.

Carolyn Jean said...

An LKH hero. Excellent!!

Carolyn Jean said...

This is only going to take nine years to complete. Hmmm.

Samantha Kane said...

That's what I was thinking, lol! I was wondering if it would be done before I had to leave town.

lisabea said...

It's the hotel California all over again, Sam.

Bridget Locke said...

Hey it may take forever to complete, but we're talkin' hot, yummy scrumptious men! Who cares?! LOL!

Hey, Carolyn, do you need someone to host round 4? Just curious. :)

Sarah said...

OK, I am home from work, I am ready to deliver...I think it might be the middle of the night over there!

lisabea said...

Sarah, either email me your answer or cj. :)

Yay!!

Sarah said...

Done. It is now 9.30ish in the evening here. Yes it is autumn and I have the winter woollies on AND some especially sexy pink sparkly slippers.

Sorry to be so late!

naida said...

its my turn! *yay* before I head off to work I pick.....
Edward Cullen from Stephenie Meyers 'Twilight'
Okay, I know he's technically 17,
but he's actually centuries old and very rich :P
He's the vampire version of Jane Austens Mr. Darcy.
http://thebookworm07.blogspot.com/

Katie(babs) said...

Edward and Doyle!! OH holy horny me!!
I will be on social security till it gets to me.
No one has picked my hero yet. :D
Welcome all newbies to our orgy island. *passes the bottle of rum*

lisabea said...

I think we need to ratchet this mother up.

MaryKate said...

wOOt! So it's my turn???

Umm, yeah, Roarke, from JD Robb's In Death series, please. I need me some Irish kabillionaire who likes his showers hot and calls me sweetheart.

Carolyn Jean said...

Gasp!

Duck!

Carolyn Jean said...

Gasp!

Duck!

lisabea said...

Rut Row.


That's going to go over very poorly.

lisabea said...

Bon Dieu! It is my turn at long last~

I chose Rhage! Just another vampire to poof.


So, uh, CJ, when does the trading commence cuz I have stuff to accomplish here. heheheheheh


NEXT!

Katie(babs) said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
MK ROARKE WAS MINE!!!!!!!!

*runs away with her bottle of rum and sobs in the corner*

MaryKate said...

Heh. I would feel bad, but I can't when Roarke is giving me my massage.

Sorry KB. I'm sure you'll come up with someone equally...delicious.

Huh, LB, I need to rearrange my list now. Rhage was my #3, but I figured Sula would get him first. You have refined taste, woman.

lisabea said...

I totally saw that coming. Poor KB.


You should chose someone like the Incredible Hulk. We're going to need a really big super hero to control the madness that's taken hold of the island. This is going to be like Lord of the Freaking Flies all over again.

MaryKate said...

CJ, I'd be glad to host a round at my place...

Yeah, LB, I'm gonna have to sleep with one eye open now, I think. ;o)

Katie(babs) said...

Oh MK, throw it in my face about the Roarke massage! If you find a pig head at the front door of your hut, I deny everything.

I know no one will have my former second now first DIK lover.

Carolyn Jean said...

Oh, man!

Okay, wow. Hey, LB, is Rhage the dragon guy? Which is he from? Fine picks, ladies!

LB: the trading can commence whenever, just report it to me in some way.

MY pick is still unpicked. I think I am going to get him!

MK, you can host round 4 if this thing hasn't totally devolved into mayhem!

sula said...

heh. Let the trading commence. ;)

lisabea said...

Dik lover. ahhahahahahhaha

My maturity level continues to fall.

OK off to write. You girls behave yourselves! ANd, er, someone notify me when the trading begins. OMG. Katie. Are you picking YKW? No.

lisabea said...

YAY!!! Swap us out CJ!! I so want my BFF to give over my BFF! Yay!


Poor Sula will have Rhage until the sunscreen run outs.

Katie(babs) said...

YKW?
By the way I just saw the new trailer for the Twilight movie. Edward fans unite!

MaryKate said...

Wait! The trailer is up for Twilight??

*MK leaves to find it*

sula said...

Ok, let's make this official. I hereby offer Adrien to lisabea in exchange for Rhage.

(Oh and I will bring along the extra super SPF 10billion sunscreen. To slather all over his luscious skin. mmm. And that dragon tat.)

Carolyn Jean said...

Oh, Sula! I never put that photo together with Rhage! And you can also lend the sunscreen to Adrien.

lisabea said...

Best keep that there lotion away from my boys. Adrien is more likely to squirt it into Jake's eye than anything else, but just in case...

YAY FOR SWAPPIN'

MaryKate said...

Mmmm, yummy tat, Sula. I always had a hard time picturing what it would look like, but that's great.

Enjoy Rhage. Alot. ;o)

Kristie (J) said...

Yeah!!! He's still free! He's still free! I was sweating bullets I tell you thinking someone else would pick him up!
I claim *drum roll please*

Derek Craven of Dreaming of You by Lisa Kleypas

Carolyn Jean said...

VERY good! I now have a new appreciation for Derek. I'm glad you got him.

Shannon said...

I very nearly picked the omg!hawt Mr. Craven, but figured there was at least one person out there who wanted him more than I did. Glad to see that was the case. Enjoy him kristie. I may need to borrow him simply for the smoldering, sexy longing looks. :)

Carolyn Jean said...

I just want to say that Sarah from NZ has made a proxy pick with LB and me that is absolutely fantastic! And nobody will think of him.

Ana said...

guys this is the best (un)deserted island in all of the world.
So, Roarke, Derek and Edward Cullen are all there? EYE candy.

*prays that no one will pick her hero*

JenB said...

So, Katie, did you pick yet?

sula said...

CJ, that photo and Rhage...well, I swiped it from lb. But girl, it is ON my sidebar? You never looked? hehehe.

lb, sunscreen is just what your boys need. you know they want it. heh.

mk, isn't he a perfect Rhage? so pretty. *sigh*

kristie, I'll tell ya...I was tempted to call Derek. But I luvs ya. After having my all-time fav hero swiped from me...wouldn't wish it on anyone. *wipes tear from eye*

So with all the heros on this island, we are going to have a very high ratio of women to men. Should make for some...interesting...combinations. heh.

Carolyn Jean said...

JenB, KB is recovering from the disastrous loss of Roarke. I think it could take a while. According to sources I have, it is actually surprisingly devastating to have your hero of choice picked by another.

And just FYI, if anybody picks my hero, I am going to destroy the ENTIRE ISLAND!

lisabea said...

KB~ TAKE MICHAEL.
Take him, sweetie, he's all yours.

Carolyn Jean said...

Sula, I looked at it, I just never connected it to Rhage! But now I always will, and he is all yours.

Carolyn Jean said...

KB:
YOu could always take the Windflower guy, pair him with another MK fave in round 2, and attempt a trade.

Sarai said...

Well all I know is Adrien and Jake need to be seperated but yet kept close so does this mean LB and I living next door together with a hot tub between us?

JenB said...

Argh...well, she better hurry up and get over it 'cause I'm next and I WANT MY HERO!!! ;)

lisabea said...

Jakes going to make a play for every woman there, you know it. Adrien and I will be preparing poisonous,er, blow darts and shooting them at Jake's fat head. Oh how that mighty one is going to fall.


Uh. Where the hell is KB.Does she have a JOB or something???

hehehehe Off to write.

Katie(babs) said...

My turn!! Joy!!
Alexander from The Bronze Horseman. He and I will enjoy making ice cream together.

Katie(babs) said...

Sula, you have to make sure you have enough tootsie rolls for Rhage.
I will be drugging Roarke and hiding him way in the forest. I have the freaky black smoke from Lost to keep everyone away from him.

Kristie (J) said...

CJ: and once you read the book you will appreciate him even more!

Oh Shannon good thing! I wanted him more than anyone else could have *g*

And Sula - thanks for leaving him for me *g* My thanks

Carolyn Jean said...

KB:
Due to my ignorance, can you name book and author???

JenB said...

I pick Vane Kattalakis from NIGHT PLAY by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Vane's hot and he likes the Lane Bryant crowd. He'll ignore all you skinny bitches and give all his attention to lovin' my fat ass. He's straight, so he won't spend all his time playing with the other boys, and he's a werewolf, so I won't be sad about missing my puppy. I totally got the best deal.

Carolyn Jean said...

Excellent, JenB! I love it.

MaryKate said...

I will be drugging Roarke and hiding him way in the forest. I have the freaky black smoke from Lost to keep everyone away from him.

Standing right here, Kate. Right here. Sheesh. Now I know how Eve feels.

Katie(babs) said...

Alex is from The Bronzehorseman by Paullina Simons and the best romance of all time!!

Christine said...

Damn.
It's almost my turn and MY FIRST FOUR HEROES ON MY LIST ARE ALREADY 'EFFING TAKEN! Shit!!!

Tracy said...

Ok I go to sleep and wake up to find Rhage, Edward Cullen and Vane GONE! ARG! Well, I guess they're still on the island so that's a definite plus.

KB - the pig head outside the hut comment had me spewing coffee all over the monitor!

Christine said...

Says the girl who got to pick first. You can't complain girl friend. No way. ;p

Katie(babs) said...

Tracy, just a simple warning to those who may take my other 5 mens.

Sarai said...

So KB is going to go all Carrie on us. and I swear if anyone takes my next hero I will be joining her.

LB what do you mean shooting darts at his big head. DAMN IT! Now I have to keep him in doors all day... well that might not be so bad... humph

Carolyn Jean said...

Okay, checking this has become a sad addiction. I am getting NOTHING done!

Hey, I left Ciaralira a message, but if she doesn't check in in a few hours, I'll move her to the end, since the list is still fluid, and then she can go early in the next round. Because I want our English patients to pick before they go to bed!

LB: Does Ally blu know about this??

Carolyn Jean said...

S: I wonder who your next hero might be! We tend to have similar hero tastes. Oh, man, I have such a list I want. So far so good.

Tracy said...

Puuuuhleeze! I can complain til I'm blue! Doesn't do any good, but it feels damn good at the time! lol

Tell me who you're men are Katie and I'll be sure to pick them bwahahahahaha!

Katie(babs) said...

Well Sarai I do have the pig, so the blood is no problem.
Muwahaha!!

Only a few select know my list and they better not even try for any of them!

Ana said...

CJ, I am addicted to trhis and keep refreshing the page every minute thinking:

*is it my turn yet is it my turn yet* *g*

ciara said...

Damn it! Jamie Fraiser is MIIIIINNNNNEEEEE!!!!!
Alright, alright... I choose Ethan from Meljean Brook's Demon Night. I want to have his babies.

Katie(babs) said...

Ciara, I feel your pain
*passes the pig head*

Ethan is more than welcome and not on my list.

ciara said...

On a related note to my hero choice: I wish MJB's Guardians could have babies (they are sterile). I'm such a sucker for a man who likes babies. And my dirty little secret is that I heart stories where the heroine gets knocked up. I ADORE MJB's books, but there are zero babies. Le Sigh.

Tracy said...

ARRRRRRRGGG! Ethan was my next pick. I knew it was too much to hope that he wouldn't get taken!

ciara said...

Isn't he wonderful? He's SUCH a gentleman. I like Alpha Heroes and all, but if I'm picking a hero to actually live with I want a nice guy, not an arrogant, overbearing...you get the idea. Ethan is a knight in shining armor - chivalrous, honor bound, kind, and kick-ass enough to slay the dragon. Yum. He reminds me of my husband. :)

ciara said...

Are any of you planning on attending the RWA national convention this summer in San Francisco?

Carolyn Jean said...

NOOOOOOO!
Ethan is MIIIIIINNNNNNE! Oh, I am SO distraught. I didn't think anybody would pick him. Oh, Ethan! Please, turn back time! Let it not be true!!!

Katie(babs) said...

Ciara!! I am :) You should see the group of us that will be taking over :D

Ciara said...

Mwuhahahahaha!

Carolyn Jean said...

I cannot post your pick, Ciara, the screen is too blurry from my tears!

Christine said...

Hmm... kinda anticlimatic for me here, but I'll choose Acheron from Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter Series.

Tracy said...

Come on CJ - we'll start our own "Ciara picked Ethan" grief support group. Oh who am I kidding - let's get over it and pick other heros! There are plenty to be had - just don't pick mine!

And yes, Ethan if fab and definitely all of those wonderful things you mentioned as well as completely yummy!

Tracy said...

I wondered when Ash was gonna god! Good choice Christine.

Carolyn Jean said...

Okay people! A few new picks on the board! The floor goes to LesleyW!!!

Shannon said...

heehee. I was bemoaning the fact that I have not read so many of the books you all rave about. In this case it is working out quite well. Most of your heroes are new to me. Sam and I are partying happily over in my hut. No angst...yet.

Carolyn Jean said...

Oh, for those tracking by email, I chose ERIC from the Sookie Stackhouse series and Sarah chose fabulous CLAY the werewolf, from BITTEN, which I can't recommend enough. Maybe Sarah and I can work out a deal of some sort.

Ana said...

Oh That is a surprise , I was certain Ethan was going to CJ, I never even bothered shortlisting him.

Carolyn Jean said...

Thanks, Ana, for understanding that I NEED and deserve him. Now I am condemned to a life of being a crazy stalker of Ciara's hut. Well, when I'm not busy with my Eric that is.

Katie(babs) said...

Ahem, if anyone takes a certain guardian from me I will go ape shit.

Carry on.

Tracy said...

oh Clay!! How could I have forgetten about him? *drool* - good choice Sarah!

Shannon said...

Oh! I feel so left out now! I need to run out to the bookstore and buy out their stock. So many heroes I need to introduce myself to!!!

MaryKate said...

Ahem, if anyone takes a certain guardian from me I will go ape shit.

Carry on.


You know, for a little tiny redheaded woman, you are threatening little minx, ain't ya???

So far my #2 hasn't been chosen! Not that Roarke isn't MORE THAN ENOUGH to keep me satisfied.

Oh, sorry, was that salt in the wound?? :wink:

Sarai said...

Christine OMG I hate you (j/K) man I wanted Ash damn it now I have to go re-work the whole list.
*sulking*

lisabea said...
