Seven hotties a-swimming!

On the Seventh Day of Sex-Mas Deanna brought to me......

Seven Hotties a-swimming!

Well, two hotties, any way!

So which hunk Louisa Bacio picked is your favorite?

Bad Boy with a Heart (or Not)

Warning: If you’re not a regular watcher of the series Once Upon a Time, and don’t want any spoilers, don’t read on. Just enjoy the gorgeous hotties.

A good many of us like the bad boys. You know, those sexy, wild men the right mate might be able to tame. Umm, baby. And Once Upon a Time does such a good job of making their rebels oh-so-delectable.

The television series mixes a fairy tale dimension with a modern setting. Two characters blend together with similarities in physique and mannerisms, and both act as a potential love interest for Emma, the adult daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming.

The Huntsman (Jamie Dornan) – The man given the job to cut out Snow White’s heart for the Evil Queen.

Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) – As in Captain Hook. Who knew the dastardly pirate and foe of Peter Pan could be so delicious! This rendition does him justice, a la Captain Jack Sparrow.  

Hot Traits:

The Scruff – Usually, I’m not one for beards, but both the Huntsman and Hook rock the facial hair. Yes, I’d be more than willing to risk burn marks wherever they may leave ’em.

The Lanky Physique – Line the twosome up, and they appear to match. The actors who play the characters also are only one year apart – 31 & 32.

Irish Blokes – Yep, what are the odds the two of them hail from Ireland? Suave and sexy, cut from the same genetic pool, and with accents, too.

Bad Boy with a Heart – If you’re familiar with the fairy tale of Snow White, the Huntsman is not actually able to rip out the fair maiden’s heart. Instead, he brings back the queen the heart of a deer. In season one, the Huntsman/Sheriff falls for Emma, and it doesn’t end well.

In season two, viewers have seen glimpses of goodness in Hook. He’s drawn to Emma, but she’s not quite sure she should accept his advances as sincere.

The Twist of a Wrist

The Evil Queen, aka Regina, the stepmother of Snow White, and her mother Cora possess a nasty habit of ripping the hearts from unsuspecting victims. (So similar to what happens when a romance goes bad.) As the series progresses, we learn the victims actually can live through the process. Oh, yes, that means they are heartless and unfeeling. In one flashback scene, viewers see Cora holding Hook’s beating heart. Did she replace it, or keep it as a token? We don’t know the answer.

Surely, it’s not Emma’s fate to love two heartless men.

Tell me: Do you have a favorite? Can you pick between these fairytale hotties?

Here’s a look at a new release:

The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf 4: The Wolfe Pack

Silver Ashe can’t let go of the desire to find her birth father and the urge to join a pack. Against the wishes of her brother, Trevor, and her vampire-lover, Nick, Silver leaves New Orleans for the woods of Louisiana. 
As the guard and a dominant member of the Wolfe Pack, Viktor isn’t too sure of the city-dwelling stranger who comes trespassing. With the lack of female werewolves, Viktor soon sees Silver as a potential mate. Too bad she’s already spoken for by a bloodsucker. 

Trapped between worlds, Silver’s faced with choosing between the lover she’s known most of her life, and the budding relationship with Viktor, where her future may lay. It’ll take some sweet talking and a whole lot of loving for Silver to find her place within the pack.

Available now via Ravenous Romance, Amazon, Barnes&Noble and other eRetailers.

Until next time,

Louisa Bacio

Check out the Eighth Day of Hotties tomorrow with Ann Mayburn


  1. Whoo-hoo! Thanks so much for letting me play!

  2. The Huntsman. Absolutely. Terrific post, Louisa - as usual!

  3. Hook!!! He's not only delish, but also a bad boy...who often shows his softer, kinder side. YUM!

  4. You know it's really not fair that I have to choose just one of them. However, if I really have to I'd pick Hook. There's just something about him that draws me in and makes me want to be oh so bad. ;)

    (Just for the record though, I still say I'd rather have them both.)

  5. Every time I look at that photo of Graham, I swoon ... and then I think of Hook. So fickle.

  6. I never could resist an Irish rogue, so it's a tough choice, but oh, that Colin O'Donogue has the devil dancin' in his eyes, so I'm gonna have to go with Hook. Love that show!

  7. Love your description Linda -- "devil dancin' in his eyes!"

  8. The Huntsman is adorable but Hook for sure! Gotta love a bad boy!! And the accent is fabulous...Sigh.

  9. My official winner was Shay -- no one left email addy's, but I know how to contact!
