Today’s prompt is Characters I want to meet.
Have ya got a couple of days, ’cause this blog could take a while.
In the interest of hoping people actually read this, I’ll edit it down before I start and only pick a couple!
I’ve talked about this first one before on other blogs, but I’d really like to meet Elizabeth Bennet.
I need to know the answer to this question: did you marry Darcy because you truly loved him, like over-the-moon loved him, or because you loved Pemberley? I think it’s a legit question because I’ve always found her motivation in falling in love with him after she sees his home, suspect.
I’m a huge JD Robb IN DEATH series fan. I’d lovelovelove to meet Eve Dallas and follow her around for a day. OF course, part of that following around would be to her home where I could also meet her ubersexy man, Roarke. Can you tell I’m drooling right now just thinking about that encounter? About how his hand, all warm and big and..Roarke-y, would feel against mine? How his angelic smile would be intent on me and me alone? How his “poet’s” mouth would form my name…okay, gotta stop and move on to the next one because this is getting a little out of hand.
I’d love to meet Aibileen from The Help and talk about where she gets her strength from. She is one of the best-drawn females I have ever read. Complex and simple, wise and still naive. I think I could learn a great deal from her.
Stephanie Plum and Lula from the Janet Evanovich Numbers mysteries are two gals who I’d like to take to lunch and chat up. I want to know why Steph can’t make a decision on the man she wants in her life when it’s so bloody obvious to me she needs to pick Ranger!! Really. What is her problem?? And as far as Lula is concerned, I’d like to know how she started out in the ‘ho business.
I’ll stop it at those 6 characters, because, really…I could go on all day.

And when I’m not drooling over fictional Irishman ( ROARKE!!!) you can find me here:
