I skipped last week so here goes this week. I chose Bowen MacRieve of the Lykae Clan from Kresley Cole’s Wicked Deeds on a Winter’s Night. I have yet to choose any characters of the werewolf variety so I figured I’d remedy that.
His fated mate’s first thoughts about Bowen:
She inwardly sighed. Lykae males were notoriously good-looking, and the few she’d seen had lived up to their reputation, but this one was heart-poundingly sexy.
He had black hair, stick straight and thick, reaching to the collar of his obviously expensive shirt. His body — which she’d found herself thinking about frequently over the past few days — was sublime. He stood a good bit over six feet tall, and though the corridor was wide enough for two normal-size people to pass, his broad shoulders and big, rangy build filled the space.
But even with all his many attractions, his eyes were what made him so unique. They were the color of rich, warm amber, and yet there was a kind of sinister light to them, which she liked.
I chose model Ben Brian; imagine he has amber eyes. And I’m pretty sure Bowen had chest hair – being a Lykae and all – but this is who I thought of. The relationship between him and Mariketa, his mate, is hilarious because as they‘re climbing through mountains and jungles, they bicker back and forth but it becomes playful. Bowen lost his “real” mate years ago and the thing that’s developing between them helps to thaw his bitterness some. Though she is awfully reluctant.
They have this on again/off again thing throughout and this little letter she leaves him sums things up pretty well”
The name is MariKETA.
Go to hell,
the WITCH, doing a creepy spell somewhere right now. “
LOL. The dialogue was so funny in this book. Bowen really won my heart when he realized some things about himself at the end of this book when he was forced to question his true feelings. Loved this and loved the Lykae.
Um, yes please.
