Beard of the Day


Rwoarrrrrr! Penelope presents...a true classic. Sean Connery's beard. Nicely groomed. Perfect amount of sexy salt-n-peppa. Just imagine him talking with his butterscotchy delicious accent and your Friday is filled with hairy happiness. (And I love that quirking eyebrow thing he's got going on, too!).

Reading updates: Finished The Rose of Shanhasson by Joely Sue Burkhart. There were some great things about this story--lush imagery of the fantasy world, two incredibly sexy heroes, and the author did an amazing job building the sexual tension between the heroine and a secondary hero, Gregar. In fact, she did too good a job, because I was peeved at the end that she just left us hanging with no sexual resolution for Gregar and Shannari. I feel cheated! Wah! I guess I have to buy the next book if I want any satisfaction, which is evidently part of Burkhart's diabolical plan.

I also just finished Stephanie Laurens' The Untamed Bride. After my enormous disappointment with Mastered by Love, I am thrilled to announce...Stephanie Laurens got her mojo back, baby! Yep, this book is a return to the old Stephanie I know and love--emotionally satisfying love scenes, excellent suspense, beautifully written, and....romantic. I'll be posting a review next week.

Happy, happy weekend to all,
Penelope

I'm not going to lie, I do like Sean Connery with a beard. Nicely groomed is a must for all beards but Sean rocks it. yum!

I haven't read a Joely Sue Burkhart yet, seems like I need to fix that. :)

Sean Connery is so hot he looks better now than when he was younger.

He doesn't do it for me...

Wait, what did I just say?

FV- I think I'll be watching some old James Bond movies this weekend. ;)

Hi Sherry! I agree...I like him much better with a beard than without. He really has that rugged, yet elegant look.

He does look better with the beard, and I do like that eyebrow quirk! Adding The Untamed Bride to my TBR pile :)
