FALLing

I am about to start writing some more in my book but first I wanted to share a little with my readers. Authors are always posting pictures of how they envision their characters so I figured why not? Since I'm feeling so spunky tonight I thought sharing a little cowboy Harlan and redhead Rosalee wouldn't hurt any. Let me know what you think!!! I know you haven't gotten to meet Harlan from my preview posts but lets just say he is ideal because of course he is fiction and all. Tall, oh so tall... tan, that sun-kissed farmers tan that a man gets from working outside all day long... dark hair that you want to run your fingers through and mess up just cause it makes him that much sexier... then there are the eyes (wont lie: the characters eyes were inspired by my hubby) are the most amazing shade of green - hazel you have every seen. They change colors and when you stare deep into them you get lost looking at all the swirls of gold laced through the browns and greens. Heaven-set, I promise! Oh, and to top it all off add some dusty old boots, wranglers, and a cowboy hat!!! Totally swoon-worthy and if you aren't drooling after that image just wait until you scroll down!

When i think of harlan... i think of...

since his sexy little face is hidden, i think this picture sums it up but still leaves plenty left for the imagination to fill in the blanks
stole this one from a blogger friend of mine - sorry rin but you gotta share when you have something as tasty as he is!

sprinkle in a little of that
ruggedly raw hotness
(especially that chiseled jaw line)

just a dash of day old stubble that you just want to reach out and rub

A smidgen of abs like those; they used wash boards back in the day, didn't they? yeah, i'd so be into doing laundry if that were still the case :D

the cowboy way - pepper!!!

add in a good dollop of pepper's fun-loving, goofy personality

"if it's got hair, i can ride it. if it's got a beat, i can dance to it"

"it's your call, stubby"

Waiter: "how would you like your steak cooked?"
Pepper: "oh, just knock it's horns off, wipe it's nasty ass
and chunk it right here on this plate"

and it ain't cowboy if you don't throw a dash or two of george in the pot! *that is so Harlan's smile*

At first she's gonna come on strong
Like She'll love you all night long
Like it's going out of style
Then she'll leave you with a smile

Well you can't help but wonder
Why you can't help but love her
But you can't help love her
And all that hurtin' was more than worth it
It's written all over your face

One day you'll pass her on the street
With that guy you used to be
She'll say hello and walk on by
Then she'll leave you with a smile

I knew the stakes were high right from the start.
When she dealt the cards, I bet my heart.
Now I just found a game that I can't play,
And this is where the cowboy rides away.

[Chorus:]
And my heart is sinking like the setting sun,
Setting on the things I wish I'd done.
It's time to say goodbye to yesterday.
This is where the cowboy rides away.

We've been in and out of love and in-between.
And now we play the final showdown scene.
As the credits roll a sad song starts to play,
And this is where the cowboy rides away.

[Chorus:]
And my heart is sinking like a setting sun,
Setting on the things I wish I'd done.
Oh the last goodbye's the hardest one to say,
And this is where the cowboy rides away.

Oh the last goodbye's the hardest one to say.
This is where the cowboy rides away.

I'm not the hero who will always save the day.
Don't always wear the white hat, don't always know the way.
I may not even be the dream you wanted to come true,
But I'll always be the man in love with you.

I'm not the key that opens every door.

I don't have the power to give you all you want and more,
But when you're needin' somethin' special you can hold on to,
I'll always be the man in love with you.

I never could work miracles.

There may be others who can do what I can't do,
But no one else can be as good as me at lovin' you.

So when the world won't turn the way you wish it would,

And the dreams you have don't come alive as often as they should,
Remember that there's someone there whose heart is always true.
I'll always be the man in love with you.

Remember that there's someone there whose heart is always true,

Someone there to help you make it through.
I'll always be the man in love with you.

hello there mr. LeDoux... i do believe that is all harlan's voice i hear when you sing to me... lets throw a good handful of that twangy southern drawl in the batch as well

Well, I never was the kind to wear my feelings on my sleeve
But since I've met you, girl, there's been a world of change in me
Well, I've got to say I love you, hope you like the sound of that
'Cause I can't keep it under this old hat

Under this old hat is the head you turned around
And the heart you stole away, the day we met
Under this old hat's two arms that long to hold you tight
And the boots I'd walk the soles off of to be here by your side
And every night in my prayers, there's just one thing I ask
That the man you love will always be under this old hat

Well, you've got me feeling things that I've never felt before
And it's so good to know when I come a knocking at your door
That of all the men who'd love to waltz across your welcome mat
The one you want is under this old hat

Under this old hat is the head you turned around
And the heart you stole away, the day we met
Under this old hat's two arms that long to hold you tight
And the boots I'd walk the soles off of to be here by your side
And every night in my prayers, there's just one thing I ask
That the man you love will always be under this old hat
That the man you love will always be under this old hat

Just look at you, girl
Standin' here beside me
Starlight on your hair
Lookin' like a dream I dreamed somewhere
And look at me, girl
You got me actin' just like a lover
In an old time picture show
And how I got the part -- I just don't know
But it's written all across your face
Plain as it can be
You're the one that I was lookin' for
Now you're all that I can see

CHORUS:

You mean everything to me
And I'd do anything to have you stay forever
I'm an ordinary man
But I feel like I could do anything in the world
When I look at you, girl

Verse:

Just look at you, girl
Walkin' here beside me
Misty morning light
I see my own reflection in your eyes
And just smile at me, girl
With eyes that tell a story
That words can never say tellin' me your love is gonna stay
And we're standin' right together now
In everything we do
And if my world should come apart
I'll still be lovin' you

now toss in some fiery,
sizzling bad-ass attitude and the smoking-hot, quick draw mouth of Doc holiday to even out the recipe

I'm your huckleberry...

It appears my hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Nonsense, I have not yet begun to defile myself.

Why Ed does this mean we're not friends anymore? You know Ed, if I thought you weren't my friend... I just don't think I could bear it!

Oh, make no mistake. It's not revenge he's after. It's a reckoning.

It's true, you are a good woman. Then again, you may be the antichrist.

Why Kate, you're not wearing a bustle. How lewd.

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

Maybe poker's just not your game, Ike. I know: let's have a spelling contest.


rosalee

Since my drug of choice is cowboy, you won't be getting the same elaborate detail as you did with Harlan. Sorry!
now in the book she has a different hair cut and skin tone but you get the idea
(a sexy little red-head with that girl next-door vibe but still girly and feminine)
