Meet Your Heroes


www.kimberlykillion.com

Today on History Undressed, as part of our week long anniversary, I've teamed up with my good gal pal, Kimberly Killion, to bring you a tasty treat! I want you to meet your heroes!

I've asked three of Kim's Hot Damn Design models, who frequently grace the covers of historical romance novels, some questions!

Don't forget to comment! There will be one lucky winner today--the prize? A pic of one of the models, winners choice!

Read on romance lovers!


Up first on the list is Charles HackmanIf you could go back in time, which hero would you be: a Laird (Scottish Chief), A Duke, a Prince or a Warrior? Warrior like William Wallace.

Sigh, we love men in kilts…Would you rather make love in: a meadow, by a roaring fireplace, on a horse, or on top of a tower? A tower.

That’s hot. Pick your preference: ale, wine or whiskey? Wine.

A man after my heart… What would you want your historical heroine to wear to bed: a corset, a silk nightgown, crotchless drawers, or nothing at all… Nothing.

Phew! I need a fan! 

Hello... John Michael. If you could go back in time, which hero would you be: a Laird (Scottish Chief), A Duke, a Prince or a Warrior?  A warrior.

I love warriors. Nothing better than a man who knows how to handle his—sword… Would you rather make love in: a meadow, by a roaring fireplace, on a horse, or on top of a tower? On top of a tower.

A man who likes to be on top...hawt! Pick your preference: ale, wine or whiskey? Whiskey

A true alpha male… What would you want your historical heroine to wear to bed: a corset, a silk nightgown, crotchless drawers, or nothing at all… Corset

Is it hot in here or is it just me?

Our third and final hero is Billy Freda. If you could go back in time, which hero would you be: a Laird (Scottish Chief), A Duke, a Prince or a Warrior?  Prince

I see a fairytale in the making. Nothing better than a man who knows how to hand his—sword…Would you rather make love in: a meadow, by a roaring fireplace, on a horse, or on top of a tower? Fireplace

So romantic…Pick your preference: ale, wine or whiskey? Wine

Sigh… What would you want your historical heroine to wear to bed: a corset, a silk nightgown, crotchless drawers, or nothing at all… Toss-up between crotchless and nothing.....but I think I'll go with nothing!!
Whew! Sounds like a perfect fantasy!

Thank you to the lovely Kim and her heroes for participating in the fun!

A bit on Kim... Award-winning author, Kimberly Killion, has been hailed by Romantic Times Magazine as an author who writes “captivating romance with excellent pacing and characters who are honorable, intelligent and full of humanity.” Her debut book, Her One Desire (Kensington 2008), was nominated for the romance-publishing industry's highest award of distinction, the RITA® Award.

Check out Kim's new book... love her work!

My Cursed Highlander

A proud, tormented warrior...Laird Taveon Kraig would do anything to recover a magical amulet powerful enough to break the curse that has plagued his clan for a hundred years—even marry a woman determined to hate him. But the beautiful—albeit boldly defiant—woman stirs his passion like no other. He never dreamed his quest would involve surrendering his heart.

A blind sculptress… Having survived two ruthless marriages, Viviana Gorini Dè Medici has no desire to take another husband—especially one who wants her most prized possession: a magical amulet that provides her with the gift of sight. Despite her pleas, she is forced into the marriage and sent on a dangerous journey with a man whose charms melt her defenses, whose touch sets her on fire, and whose kiss stirs her body in a way she’s never known.

A wicked enemy… Surrendering completely to an ecstasy that binds their hearts, neither of them foresees the sinister threat waiting to destroy both of their worlds. In a family torn apart by a centuries old curse, will love be enough to save them all?

Fantastic interviews. I am a huge fan of historical romance. Thanks for the post!

Liz said...

Such a fun post! But what's with the top of the tower? Sounds uncomfortable. A more of a roaring fireplace type of woman. LOL.

Alexandriaweb said...

Brilliant post, I initially miss-read part of it and thought that making love IN a fireplace might be just a little TO HOT!

Tara said...

Oh Yummy!!! What a wonderful way to end my Friday and to start my weekend. I "love" getting to meet some of the models for covers. There are some books that I have bought just for the covers alone.
