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 five heroes, and draft round 6 will start at Kristie(J) & Katie(babs)'s. At the end of 7 drafts, everybody will have a group of 7 heroes to bring. Yes, trades are permitted. And if you missed last night's trade between CarolynJean and Lisabea... you've got some gossip to catch up on!
Don't worry about obsessively monitoring this thing. If you don't call your hero in 24 hours, 1 hour we'll skip you. LOL Just kidding. Maybe two hours. Or three. ;)

RULES:
• No picking out of order. Once the woman above you has chosen, it's your turn.
• 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 a few hours, sorry, you're skipped. But you can email your host ahead of time with your pick. Or comment as soon as you come back and your pick will be entered.
• 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 1: (now over) Hosted at CarolynJean's.
ROUND 2: (now over) Hosted at Sarai's
ROUND 3: (now over) Hosted at lisabea's.
ROUND 4: (now over) Hosted at MaryKate's.
ROUND 5: (now over) Hosted at Christine's.
ROUND 6: Hosted at Katie(babs) & Kristie(J)'s.
ROUND 7: Hosted at Sula's!

*Kate stumbles out of her hut barely able to walk from all the sexin the night before*

And remember Kristie and I have the power to delete your picks if you steal our men because you are on our turf!

*Chugs some rum and hands a 6 pack to Kristie*

So ready.... steady... go... Let's get ready to island rumble!!

~**~**~**~**

And as an extra special bonus - Lisabea has been talking with the authors of some our DIK heroes and asked them to weigh in with their choices. And not only that!!! She has books to give away!!!

Shannon said...

Wheeeeee!!!! Let the fun begin!

Kristie (J) said...

OK - I'll start off the par-tay. Kaitlin emailed me her pick - but I thought I'd wait a bit to see if she shows up.

Katie(babs) said...

*chugs rum*
BURP

Bev(QB) said...

:::grabs a pitcher of coconut rum and pineapple juice::

Whooda thought DIK was a spectator sport?!

Let the games begin!

Katie(babs) said...

Welcome Bev! Come to my hut where the rum runs freely and my men are very friendly :D

Kristie (J) said...

Oh Kaitlyn - come out, come out where ever you are!

Kristie (J) said...

Or I can offer you a beer - since Kate brought some for me.

Carolyn Jean said...

Hi everybody! I didn't know this was starting again. Hey, did you notice I exchanged the omega for Adrian? He is fitting in a lot better. I hope everybody will forgive me. I think I was temporarily insane.

Bev, very fun to have a spectator along! Perhaps you can inject a note of sanity!

Well, I wonder who Kaitlin chose. I wonder who you all are going to choose!

KB: there is an offer on the table for you.

Kristie (J) said...

I know who Kaitlin picked - she emailed me - but hopefully she will be here soon so she can post herself. Preview - I've read the book in question and she done good!

Katie(babs) said...

i heard offer?

Shannon said...

I say you should play hard ball. Make her work for the deal!

Kristie (J) said...

Oops - Lost - I shall be back!

Bev(QB) said...

::written during Lost commercial::

Well, that's right neighborly of y'all. If I ever figure out how to roll my fat ass outta this here hammock, 'specially after downin' this pitcher of coconut rum and pineapple, I just might start sneakin'.... er... peeking into your huts.

Carolyn Jean said...

Kristie!
A fine new icon!!

Kristie (J) said...

Thank you CJ - I just wish I could make it bigger!

JenB said...

This game inspired me to break out the liquor tonight. Pineapple-orange juice w/Malibu. Yummmmm.

I'm having trouble deciding my next pick. *ponders*

Shannon said...

Jen- great minds think alike! OJ and Malibu for me, at the moment

JenB said...

Cute pic, Shannon. Are you a ginger kid too? (redhead)

Katie(babs) said...

I'm a ginger!! :D

Bev(QB) said...

mmmmmm.... I never tried adding OJ! The Malibu and pineapple tastes just like a pina colada, but adding OJ WOULD be tasty!

Shannon said...

red headed Irish lass over here!

Katie(babs) said...

I am irish also!! with freckles :D

Tracy said...

I'm here!!! Woohoo! Of course I don't get to pick until the next millenium, but it's fun anyway!

While everyone was at rest I threatened KB that I was gonna steal rum and then trade him to one of your huts for rum! Anyone, Anyone?

You all are making me want to drink!

Shannon said...

ah freckles. they hide is so many places

Tracy said...

Duh - that's steal REHV!!!! And trade him for rum. Maybe I've been drinking and I've drank so much I've forgotten I've drank.

Tracy said...

Rehead #3 here - with freckles on arms and legs - oh yeah, it's attractive. I'm pretty sure I get my red hair from my Welsh ancestors though - some Scot-Irish as well.

Katie(babs) said...

*bashes tracy's head with a pineapple* Tracy falls to the ground in my hammock and sleeps till morning. No men no booze for her.

Kristie (J) said...

OK - Kaitlin hasn't shown yet so I'll go ahead and give her pick.


***Drum Roll Please***
This is what she sent:

Egads this is getting really, really difficult! *sigh* There are so many I want to take, but all the comic-heroes I could've chosen aren't available anymore. *sniffle* Oh, what to do? *sigh* All righty, I'll go with the one that's been flitting through my head since the very beginning.


Theodore Westgaard from LaVyrle Spencer's Years. My all-time favorite book. Could read it a thousand times & never get sick of it. :)

Katie(babs) said...

Since we have many redheads, I think the redheads have to steal Jamie since he is a ginger.

Tracy said...

oh you soooo wish chick! It's like sleeping beauty and loves kiss wakes her up...all 5 kisses from all 5 men! *cups hands around mouth* I'M COMING FOR YOUR REHV!!! Bwahahahahah!

Tracy said...

OMG - I read Years so stinking long ago I can't remember that guy. But I remember liking the book.

JenB said...

Eww, you can have Jamie. I hated OUTLANDER.

*cowers in a corner*

Katie(babs) said...

where's CJ with my offer??
Tracy stay away from Rehv. Take one of Christine's men.

Katie(babs) said...

JenB!! Sit in corner of your hut for that jamie comment!
More jamie for me then :)

Tracy said...

KB - not a bad thought. hmmmm - have to think on that.

Yes Jenb...sit in corner...one minute for every year of your life (isn't that how it is?) for the Jamie comment.

Christine said...

WHAT?!! Kate, you have no authority to offer up my men!

Katie(babs) said...

My blog!! MUWAHAHA!!!
offer me some booze and your men are safe.. for now.

Tracy said...

Unless someone has Ana's pick we're stuck...it's 4am in the UK!

Christine said...

LOL TRacy! Good point.

Tracy said...

Thanks Christine! :) My brain does work every once in a while!

Oh and Christine...you can offer all the rum in the world to Katie - won't make your men safe!

Kristie (J) said...

And what? She's not up waiting?

ROTFL

Bridget Locke said...

Hey, Ladies. Yes, Kristie, I see you posted my choice. Aw, Teddy. *sigh* Now I've got to come up with the ultimate hero for my 7th and final choice. *sniffle* I got in trouble for being online today, so that's why I was so quiet. *sigh*

Okay, who's next? :D

Carolyn Jean said...

Well, I was under the impression this thing wasn't starting up until Friday. Though I guess It's FRIDAY in the UK, so where the hell is she? Four a.m. shmore A.M.

My dear KB, I think you know my offer. It's a two-for one...it would require you making a specific pick in the next round, which you would combine with Sully and offer up to me for the feather dusting favors of one Archangel Michael.

Shannon said...

oh noes! you got caught looking at DIK at work?

Carolyn Jean said...

Hey Bridget! aka Kaitlin.

Tracy said...

Hope you didn't get into too much trouble Kaitlin! Nothing worse than getting caught staring at DIK while at work!

Kristie (J) said...

Bridget!! You made it! See - I knew I should have waited a bit longer. I love Teddy!

Carolyn Jean said...

That's the bad thing about being a freelancer. Nobody stops me from looking at DIK at work. And suddenly I'm blowing deadlines. And then paying for it the next day. Like what happened today!!!

Shannon said...

wait! DIK is dicking with your deadlines?

Carolyn Jean said...

Dik blew all over my deadlines!

Shannon said...

Bwah ha ha!!!! Oh, am I glad I wasn't drinking as I read that.

sula said...

omg, jenb. you may be banned from the island for that comment. no one can talk about my jamie like that. nobody. *growls*

s'rsly.

don't MAKE me unleash Rhage's dragon. mmm. rhage...dragon...heh.

Carolyn Jean said...

Oh Shannon, it is really terrible, I mean it's great to be self employed, but weirdly this thing has consumed freaky amounts of my attention. I don't know why it is so diverting!

Oh, Jamie! Face it Sula, we are all after him.

JenB said...

Jamie... *barf*

Shannon said...

Them sounds like fightin' words, Jen

Bridget Locke said...

I wasn't looking at DIK (thankfully), but I was on gmail chat. Honestly though, what do they expect us to do when there's NOTHING to do? Sit there & twiddle our thumbs? And the thing is, it was not even a minute before my last break and I was getting ready to take it when they came over to ask me if I want to go home early.

All I can say is that if they decide I'm not supposed to come to work tomorrow w/o pay & I get there, pay for parking & they send me home...well, heads will roll. Grr....I'm in a stinker of a mood. Come on people...more DIK! :D

sula said...

see, if you never read past outlander, you have no idea. He just gets better and better.

It might be time for a complete series reread this summer, methinks.

CJ, I was having a convo with a coworker today about local birds and stuff, and I thought of you. How's the birdfeeder?

JenB said...

Jamie is stooopid.

*throws a coconut, then runs away*

Carolyn Jean said...

I should do a post. Thanks for asking! The bird feeder is amazing, and the birds love it. This really super cool giant colorful one came to it yesterday. The birds are eating SO much food. Sometimes the mothers even feed their babies there!

Bridget Locke said...

*blush*


I have a question (which is why I'm blushing here). I know almost all of you have read Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase (love that book). Here's my duh, embarassing question.


The book that Jessica reads Dain when they've gotten married (says it's called Don Juan). Do any of you know if it is real? I'm asking because I'd love to read it & actually asked at B & N if there was a book called that. I'm feeling a bit humiliated, especially if it ISN'T real. *sigh*

sula said...

hey bridget, don't be embarrassed. lol. It's actual a very long poem by Lord Byron, a British poet. You should be able to find it in any decent anthology/collection of his work. It's very entertaining. Quite witty and funny. :)

JenB said...

really super cool giant colorful one

CJ - Is that the scientific name? ;)

Bridget - http://www.amazon.com/Penguin-Classics-George-Gordon-Byron/dp/0140422161

sula said...

Oh and here is the wikipedia entry about it.

And it looks like you can read the whole thing online here. Enjoy!

Bridget Locke said...

Sula-You rock! I loved the snippets there & they make me snort every time I read 'em, so they must be good...right?


I am so tired! I got my economy-thingamajig check in my account this morning & it was more than I expected. So, I went & bought Blue-Eyed Devil, the new Kresley Cole (Cadeon's story...whoot!), Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, Sense & Sensibility...and another one. I'm really trying to broaden my reading horizons but it's so hard sometimes! :)

Kristie (J) said...

And have you read the acknowledgment page in BED?
*g*

Bridget Locke said...

Nope, but you showed us, 'member? :) That is so cool! :) If I ever get published (crossing fingers & all that stuff), I'm thanking the blog community in general cuz you ladies rock. :)

Bridget Locke said...

Huh...that doesn't seem like the same poem that's in LOS's. Totally different. Am I smoking crack or something? LOL!

Bridget Locke said...

Scratch that. I was smokin' crack. LOL! I need to read the WHOLE thing, not just part of it. *eye roll*

Christine said...

Ooooo I think I'm comment 69.

Christine said...

Oh yeah... I had something else to say. LOL

In case anyone missed the appearance of Colin Ames-Beaumont on yesterday's round (Round 5), I posted his "letter to the lovely ladies who worship their DIKs" on my blog. That was a fantastic surprise.

ciara said...

Shannon - I just finished Moon Called and I'm afraid I'm going to have to steal Adam Hauptman from you. Fair warning!

Christine - AWESOME letter from Colin. I can't believe I missed it yesterday. It's so odd to me that MJB actually pays attention to bloggers. We must stop distracting her so she can WRITE FASTER!!!

Ciara said...

*tosses JenB to the sharks*

JAMIE + CIARA = FOREVER

Ciara said...

CJ - great choice with Adrian. I reeeaaaaallllyyyy want JB to write his story. Mmmmmmm. He'd get along well with Robin.

little alys said...

Dang it, I need to sleep. Darn day job keeps me from reading this. >_< To tomorrow!

Ana said...

Morning!!!!

Great to wake up to my turn!

Since we are ok with spin-offs and the such, I pick Fox Mulder from the X-files spin-off books! Yay!
I am certain Mulder will be the happiest hero on the island - with the amount of paranormal beings to keep him occupied forever! LOL

LesleyW said...

E-mailed my pick. Bit of a hit and run post as I'm off to work. Hate to be missing all the fun. :(

Lady of the Review said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Bridget Locke said...

I've figured out who my 7th and final pick is. If anyone chooses him...heads will roll. Just sayin'. :)

Sarah said...

Oh noes, I am so late! Hellish day at wk. It is Friday, so that is ok. Have weekend to recover senses! My pick is Katou Youji from Haru wo Daiteita/Embracing Love by Nitta Youka.

Sarah said...

Oh lord, did I just pick out of order?? How bout we pretend I didn't and actually have some manners and all that.

Shannon said...

Ciara- Adam and I are Mates. He will never leave me. He will protect me against all others. I am his, he is mine. Of course, this Alpha-ness is causing some tension in my hut. Fists were flying last night. The menz were fightin' over me! Woo! Of course, I had to reward the winner. And console the loser. The rest of the men comforted me :)

naida said...

Katie(babs) said...

The redheads are now taking over the island and CJ is taunting me.

MaryKate said...

Hi Ladies! Mornin'!

:MK stumbles out of tent reeking of the sexin (with Roarke...of course) and pomegranate margaritas.:

Katie's got my pick, just in case I'm not around today. I've actually got to work today. Of all the nerve.

Katie(babs) said...

OH MK rub it in with Roarke sex and your margaritas!!!!

Got the pick and such a great one!! And that scene with him and her. SWOON! I have work also. heh.

Christine said...

KB - Too much rum for you. The manners comment was from Sarah not Sarai. ;p

... I think I can hear all the 30something NKOTB fangirls in Rockefellar center all the way from here!!!

Christine said...

I'm off to kickbox class... gotta keep in top form in case I have the urgent need to steal one of your men (or Savi)!!! :P

Katie(babs) said...

I better not drive any sand vehicles. LOL. Sorry Sarah! Well Sarai really doesn't have any manners...

OMG just finished watching and Joe is sex on a stick!! I am so going to see them. MUST SEE THEM. Bringing out my inner 13 year old.

sula said...

lol. While you go be healthy, I am nibbling on 1/2 of a chocolate iced donut. With a large cuppa joe. mmmmm. I keep my menz happy with junk food and coffee. ;)

Shannon said...

Oh good god, my brain is still asleep. I saw this comment:

OH MK rub it in with Roarke sex and your margaritas!!!!

And my brain registered "...with Roarke and your SEX margaritas!!!"

I need coffee.

sula said...

Shannon, you can come over to my hut for coffee and dunkin' donuts. heh.

Carolyn Jean said...

Hello! Here I am. It is so fun to wake up and have 60 emails. I feel so popular. I have a fine pick planned today.

Sarai said...

What the hell? you people get up way too early for DIK seriously me and the boyz like to sleep in *yawns* okay what did I miss and can we keep it down all the rum is sitting in my head and screaming right now.

Kristie (J) said...

OK - I've stumbled out of bed after staying up much later than normal last night. Did I say I don't have to work today?
So - I think we are waiting for Tumperkin to make her appearance with her hero du jour aren't we?

Sarai said...

Hey Katie that was uncalled for I have pleanty of manners just not ones you liek ;p

Sarai said...

OMG I just figured out the whole email follow up comments thing *smacks forehead* damn it. Well I guess taking computer classes this fall might just be a good thing

Shannon said...

Early? You call this early? I have been at school for over half an hour. I've already been forced to have conversations with jr high schoolers.

Alls I can say is thank god for DIK.

lisabea said...

OK. GODDAMNIT


I'm here. And now I have to go by some cupcakes and deliver them to the middle school. OMG.


I have no idea who's dik is next??? But the author DIK is up.

whatevs.

lisabea said...

Carolyn Jean said...

Bye, LB!

Sarai, you are so funny. Now you, too can get tons of comments.

Hey, T is up! I have her pick! Sorry, I was WORKING.

Okay, drumroll please...

Charles Audley, An Infamous Army, Georgette Heyer!!

Shannon said...

Aw! ::hugs LB::

I'll send Max to your hut to offer... comfort later on.

lisabea said...

I would appreciate a few moments with Max, thank you.

Kristie (J) said...

*scratching head and totally confused now*

Aren't we still waiting for Tumperkin to choose after Ana? I think some are stepping out of line. You know what that means. Your gaggle of heroes won't be allowed to talk to you.
Unless I missed something and my gaggle won't be allowed to talk to me!

Kristie (J) said...

OK - smack my head and call me stupid - I didn't realize that CJ's pick was Tumperkins pick.
And since I caught that on my own - my gaggle can speak to me!

Carolyn Jean said...

Sorry, I should have said more than T. That is a bit cryptic!

Kristie (J) said...

And since I have Lesley's pick - we are moving right along here. Good thing I have the day off - did I mention that? - to keep up!
Lesley's pick is none other than.....

Duncan Reever from the Stardoc books by S. L. Viehl.

Sarai said...

Yeah moving on up! you guys member that song right?

Shannon said...

Damn it sasai! Now I am going to have the theme from the Jeffersons stuck in my head all day!

Katie(babs) said...

COFFEE??????????? OHHHHHH..
I need a pick me up since being up so late at night and all this sex. Man I think I went down a size.
*Revh is giving me that gooey stare again* sigh.

LesleyW said...

Hmmm, looking at my picks I have three vampires, two shifters (one werewolf, one lion), and a slightly sociopathic telepath.

Not too sure what that says about me. LOL

Christine said...

Sarah posted her pick earlier... I believe it is CarolynJean's turn. No pressure. :P

Shannon said...

Damn CJ, great pick. I'm more than a little jealous.

"...movin on up [movin on up], to the east side..."

Tracy said...

Ok I'm seriously thinking of reinforcing the hut. All of that up against the hut wall sexin is doin some serious damage!

Good morning! Wow - look at all these great pics. Holy Cow - Han Solo. What an awesom freakin pick!!!

Christine said...

Alexander the Bronze Horseman dude!

Kate!!!???!?!?! How could you forget?

Keep track of your men, will ya? If you neglect them... they will wander. Just sayin' .... ;p

lisabea said...

Han Solo is THE beta smart ass hero. Most excellent thinking, CJ.

And Nate would love to have a quick look at him.

Katie(babs) said...

Christine, put down the rum!! I mentioned Alex. I forgot Sully!
*DOH*
Now excuse me while I make it up to him...

Carolyn Jean said...

Oh, there's a whole lot of Han to go around, ladies and Gentlemen.

Christine said...

LMAO! Ooops!!

Is it my turn?

Christine said...

Hi Tracy!!! :)

Okay... it *is* my turn.

brb gotta check the spelling of his name....

**** insert background music ****
We are fam-i-ly! I've got all my DIK sisters and all their men and me!

Carolyn Jean said...

Who will she pick????

Christine said...

Gaelen vel Serranis from The Tairen Soul series by C.L. Wilson.

I.LOVE.HIM. If you haven't read C.L. Wilson's books yet, I suppose my choice is somewhat spoilerish, so I'm sorry.

Katie(babs) said...

WOOT Tairen men taking over the island!!

Carolyn Jean said...

Are we having an earthquake or is that just the Tairen men?

Tracy said...

Gaelen...another inspired pick my friend! I love that there are 3 men from CL Wilson's books!

How are you today Christine? I'm just slogging away at work. My brain feels like it's full of cotton candy!

Ana said...

ooooo, Christine, great pick! I was considering him for my next and final pick!

Christine said...

I'm off for a while my friends... happy pickings and save me some rum!

Christine said...

I *knew* you were my threat with my Gaelen pick, Ana! Ask Kate! I even told her I was worried you were going to claim him. Everytime you posted your pick, I sighed with releif that you didn't name Gaelen. ;)

... and I LOVE Kresley Cole's heroes. You made some fine choices. :)

Okay, now I *really* have to go. Catch you all later.....

ciara said...

I pick Garret Langham, the Earl of Mayne, from Eloisa James' Pleasure for Pleasure. He will get along smashingly with Colin. They can sit together under a palm tree and criticize everyone else's fashion sense, or lack thereof.

Sarai said...

That's it I'm done DAMN It Christine WTF are you reading the list me and the menz are coming up with. I knew I felt someone watching us last night.
Count me out I am going to go drink my self into a stuper and let the menz have their way with me.

*pouting*

MaryKate said...

Nice! Excellent pick, Ciara! Wow, I loves me some Mayne!

Sarai said...

Actually Rejar is willing to scarifice himself so that I may have Galen what do you think?

Um Christine?

Hello?

Katie(babs) said...

So JenB sent me her pick because she is under the weather today and not sure if she will be on. Should we wait till she makes an appearance or should I post hers, because then it is me! :D

MaryKate said...

I vote you post hers. If she sent it to you, it must mean she wants you to go for her.

Tracy said...

I'm with MK

Katie(babs) said...

Okay :D
JenB picks:
Calvin Morissey from BET ME by Jennifer Crusie

Tracy said...

OMG I LOVE Cal! What a great book - and a great pick!

MaryKate said...

So, Katie, who are you adding to your harem?

Katie(babs) said...

This hero made me sigh in ways you cannot imagine!!
Jack Prescott from Dangerous Lover by Lisa Marie Rice

MaryKate said...

Mmm, yummy! I love Jack.

Jack...that's a good name. :wink:

Tracy said...

Ok - Kristie....did you fall back asleep in your hut since you stayed up so late yesterday? :)

Katie(babs) said...

Oh yes Jack is a very good name and very handy around the home and does wonders on his knees. *wink wink*

Katie(babs) said...

I emailed her. Probably watching You Tube videos of chesty Richard.

Tracy said...

LOL!

Sarai said...

There is nothing wrong with You Tube videos of my Richard. Who by and by is sitting right beside me staring at me... calling for me to watch him and his fist of doom

Kristie (J) said...

This has gone faster then I expected so I haven't had a chance to second guess who my next hero is.

So - without further guessing I pick....Wizard from Driven by Eve Kenin!

JenB said...

KB-Thanks for posting mine. I just dragged my pukey self outta bed 45 minutes ago.

MaryKate said...

Yay! And great pick, Kristie!

It's almost my turn! Woohoo! I'm happy because I'm guessin' there's not way Lisabea and I are going for the same guy. :wink:

JenB said...

Kristie - I have DRIVEN on my TBR shelf. Maybe now I'll be a little more motivated to read it.

MaryKate said...

Awww {{{Jen}}} feel better. And congrats on the new blog! Can't wait to see what you've got in store for us!

Kristie (J) said...

Jen, you should! Wizard is one might fine mysterious hero - with a Very Unusual Childhood and some Very Special Powers - besides the obvious *naughty wink*

Tumperkin said...

CJ - thanks for being my proxy again - I'm gonna let you pet my harem once in a while for that.

I'm thinking I might bring along Molly from TUTGB to look after us all. I reckon she'll be happy to spend her time scrubbing out our -um - surprisingly comfortable hut thingy and cooking for us.

Aymless said...

LOL You guys totally make me LMAO ^_^

I really must think of a way to get on to this island and perhaps to some... uh, "liberating" ^_~

Kristie (J) said...

Aymless: Welcome to the madness. Now some I know have gotten a bit cantankerous when their guy has been stolen from under them - but since none have stolen any of mine (well I was a bit sorry that Roarke went before I could nab him - but I survived the disappointment and went on to someone else - but many of us are quite mellow!

Katie(babs) said...

T can I borrow Mick to play with my legs for awhile? *G*

lisabea said...

I chose the snarky, pouty, he's so going to get it but goooood, freaking hot Derek Knightly from Sam Kane's blazing sparking too sizzling to read in the company of others makes me blush oh my lordy lord lord ride that PONY!!!

sorry.

At Love's Command.


And I need to find it on my old hard drive so I can read it again.DAMN.

MaryKate said...

well I was a bit sorry that Roarke went before I could nab him - but I survived the disappointment and went on to someone else - but many of us are quite mellow!

:cough:Katiebabs:cough:

:wink:

MaryKate said...

My turn?? Finally!

I chose Captain Jack Seward from Connie Brockway's All Through The Night.

Mmmm, Jack. I lurve him!

Katie(babs) said...

Another man who has his with his way with a tongue, mouth, lips.... *thump*

sula said...

woohoo! Ian will be so happy that Derek is going to be on the island. lb and I have already agreed to arrange a playdate for our two menz. They cannot be separated...not for too long anyways. Or mebbe just separated enough to allow for someone to squeeze in between them. *ahem*

omg, marykate, I was *this* close to picking Jack on my last go-round. Excellent choice! What a great book. I need to reread it. :)

MaryKate said...

Phew, Sula! I'm glad I got him then. I SO regret that I waited on Adam Hauptman (who I stupidly thought no one else would choose) and he got picked by Shannon.

Sarai said...

Yes 2 more then its my turn HA HA!!! I am picking someone sweet that none of y'all thought about *crosses fingers*

Carolyn Jean said...

MK: Tons of people were shortlisting adam it looks like, including me! I notice nobody shortlisted that Sam. Or maybe somebody will go for him. It really seemed like people were forgetting Briggs and I, too thought Adam was safe!

Kristie (J) said...

MK - nice one. I loved Jack

And I have Naida's pick. Should I post or see if she comes out to play?

Katie(babs) said...

Yo island bitoches, I have Naida's pick. We wait for her?

MaryKate said...

Again I say, if you've got her vote, you should make it. We're moving along pretty quickly today, which is nice!

But maybe that's just me.

Sarai said...

Kristie seriously? Really did you have to pick him. Dang it I was hoping everyone would forget about him. He was round 7 pick. Dang it.
Can I come over and just stare at him for awhile?

Sarai said...

Oh yes Katie post it and then tell Sam to post her b/c I am getting anxious so nervous I have forgotten the correct order of his names... Shit

Carolyn Jean said...

I wonder who Sarai will choose! Can you give us a wee hint?

Sarai said...

Okay if you really want a hint the author initals are LA and he is a secondary character that most forget about...

Kristie (J) said...

Sarai: Oops - sorry - I'd give him back but uh, no - but yes, I'll let you look at him.

And here's Naida's pick

Hi gals, for this round:

I choose Mark Darcy from Helen Fielding's 'Bridget Jones Diary'

thanks!

Bridget Locke said...

Hey, guys! Finally weighing in again. So, remember how I told you I got caught online at work yesterday? Well, I got sent home w/o pay today. Oooohhh...I'm so bad. *eye roll* The whole thing's just stupid. If I hadn't been sent home early, it would've been my break, so they can bite me.

Anywho, great choices so far, ladies. :)

Katie(babs) said...

LA? I am intruigued. Historical, paranormal or contemp?
Guessing game time!

Katie(babs) said...

Aww bridget!! :(

Sarai said...

Aw Bridget that sucks... I need to stop playing but my turn is right around the corner and I can't help myself...

Sarah said...

Some very fine picks!

Carolyn Jean said...

Hi Sarah! Hi Bridget!

Sarai said...

Ummm romance is a part of the genre and seriously I don't want to give too much away in case Sam decides to be sneaky...
Paranormal romance *releases breath* there now guess ;0)

Carolyn Jean said...

Well, perhaps we should all go to your site now and check out your recent reads. Mmmmmmm....let's see....

Bridget Locke said...

As I said at the beginning of today I finally figured out choice 7. If he gets taken I'm going to be so very sad. *sniffle*

It's is HOT today. Ugh! And muggy. I need something cold to drink (non-alcoholic) please. My hot will be the sober hut...sad. :(
