A little collage to keep me company

I have a little collage of inspiration to keep me company while I work. First, the deliciously scruffy Mr. Bradley Cooper. (I find him most delicious when he’s scruffy.) He’s currently the inspiration for Brody Rollins, the hero of my December novella from Harlequin.

Bradley Cooper, Daniel Craig & Ben Affleck

The ruggedly handsome Daniel Craig is standing in for Jack Donovan, of the Devlin Group. (Soon!) And I was looking around last night for some inspiration for Drew Miller, Whitford’s police chief and Mitch Kowalski’s best friend. Found a nice shot of Ben Affleck in a Boston PD uniform.

Quite an inspirational trio!

    Yummy x3

    The Ben Affleck pic is from The Town. An excellent movie. Titus Welliver and Jeremy Renner (sp?) are also in it. I think Ben has aged very well. He’s also come into his own since he started directing.

    Jack? Devlin Group? Holy cow! I am soooo looking forward to that one. I love contemp romance but LOVE romantic suspense. I mean hot guys hanging around watching football is great, but hot guys thrown into danger and carrying a gun? Oh, yeah, baby. Now I must go reread and post a review about it on my blog so my friends and family can read them. :-)

    Bradley Cooper is cute and handsome. Hard to be both but he pulls it off. :-)

    Le sigh! I need a copy of that collage for myself! Not for writing inspiration – simply for my viewing pleasure.

    I need to watch The Town. Ben AND Jeremy and I haven’t seen it? That’s just so wrong.

    And I’m so happy be working on the DG series again. (Still working on the contemporaries, of course, but it’s also nice to blow stuff up once in a while.)

    I will definitly have to check out Jack and the Devlin Group. I read a little bit of everything. I love contemp. romance but throw in some action with a sexy,sarcastic but romantic FBI agent or cop and I’m hooked. My new crush is Sheriff Jack from A Dirty Shame *sigh* 6’5″, dark hair, lean, with a six pack to die for….need I say more.

    I’m with ya on Bradley, love the scruffy look.
