Title: Saddle Up 'N' Ride!
Author: Remmy Duchene
Publisher: Phaze BooksPublisher
Genre: Western M/M Erotic Romance
Rating: 4 NymphsLiterary Nymphs
Reviewer: Scandalous Minx
Jack Malone knows his friendship with Rusty Hunter means the world to him. The two men forged their bond over the course of seventeen years as pen pals. When the letters stopped coming, something in Jack stopped functioning and he needs his long-time friend to explain how their friendship has deteriorated to this degree.Rusty hasn’t stopped caring for Jack and in fact, the opposite has occurred. Rusty wants his friend to take up as much residence in his bed as he has in his heart.
It was hard not to like Jack and Rusty’s characters. Jack overcame the hurts of his adolescence and has become an outstanding policeman. Rusty is no slouch himself, and takes pride in his ranch. When the truths were finally revealed, I was happy the men didn’t take a rollercoaster ride on denial and send us through “I think I should, I know I shouldn’t” scenes that so many books seem to enjoy adding. Remmy Duchene’s characters know their minds enough not to allow the denial to go until it’s the “just do it already” level. I’m starting to appreciate that more and more, as of late. Saddle Up 'N' Ride! is a wonderful quick read and is entertaining both inside and outside of the bedroom, with a believable plot and characters.
Hi all! I'm Delilah Stephans and thought I'd spend the day talking about those sexy romance heroes we all love.
Oh come on, what’s not to love about them? I know I find nothing more beautiful to look at than a fit man. He doesn’t have to be muscular – don’t care for the body builders of the world personally – just fit, cut, trim; whatever term you want to use as long as he’s not egotistical about it. Let’s be honest there is nothing sexier than a well defined male physique. It’s why it’s been sculpted by the masters in the past.
The best thing about writing romance is putting a heart, soul and brain into that body – but it all starts with the body. It’s the first thing we as humans notice about a person. You can’t tell what a person is like from across the room – the ugliest person physically maybe the most wonderful person on the inside and the opposite holds true as well. But, we are always looking for the beauty.
So how do we create that hot bodied male? Some writers are gifted with an almost photographic imagination. I’m not one of them. No, I have the terrible job of having to search the internet for pictures of guys that are hot and sexy. Horrible, really horrible –
Then I take those pictures and critique them – what is it about that guy that is hot? His eyes? His lips? His shoulders? His hair? His arms? Well I work my way down… then I take the best features of each and combine them into one too sexy too be real hero. And don’t we all want romance heroes to be like that anyway?
My latest find is Gillies Marini. He’s French, and hot – as you can see of by the pictures on this post. The entire package is great – so he’ll probably inspire many a hero!
In closing, thanks Remmy for letting me borrow your blog for the day. I had a blast!
