Let’s be honest… we all love a pretty face. But there are other reasons to be attracted to someone. A sense of humor for instance. I adore people who make me laugh. If someone can make me laugh, you can guarantee that I want them to be part of my life.
In Dangerously Close, the third book in my Adrenaline Highs Series, Ashley loses her sight early in the book. She can’t see that her neighbor is a world famous rock star hiding out from rabid fans and the media. As she gets to know him, she discovers he’s funny, sexy and ultimately everything she wants in a man. And in the reverse of that situation, Seger/Mel has been wearing blinders for so long that he’s never taken the time to grab a good thing when it’s in front of him. Until he meets Ashley. She’s the first woman to treat him like a regular guy, something he treasures more than anything else. So even though she can’t “see” him, she gives him everything he needs. Even though she’s scarred, he sees that as part of her attraction, part of her that makes the whole woman he falls desperately in love with.
How about you? How important is physical attraction in a relationship? Is it the personality that counts or the looks? And hey… if you get both, it’s like winning the lottery!
To celebrate the release of Dangerously Close AND RWA’s National Conference in Anaheim, California, I’d like to give away a copy of Dangerous Race (the book I’ll be signing tonight at the “Readers for Life” literacy autographing), to one lucky commenter. See how the Adrenaline Highs series first started! I’ll announce the winner here after the conference on Sunday!
