Adrian Paul

I know I talk a lot about Daniel Craig and by now I know you must be sick to death of hearing about him but allow me to talk about another man who makes me sigh and swoon and think if I could just meet him it would make my day. Here, I'll give you a hint, he was on television in the nineties. Need another hint. He was Scottish. Need another, try this on for size:

There can can be only one. Still don't know? Here's a picture:
Wonder what's under that kilt, I used to spend hours wondering the same thing. That's Adrian Paul as Duncan McLeod of the clan McLeod. He was seriously gorgeous and truth be told even at 50 something with a family he's still hot but I used to look forward to Highlander and watch it with rapt attention.

I always wanted to write a hero for him but he never made it to the end of my story. There was always someone I was lusting after more intensely LOL. But the irony is I still have dreams about this guy LOL.

If I need a nice guy to treat me well whatever my brain deems safe about this one he seems to fit the bill. I must have trouble seeing him as much of a broken soul. Although I did write about him in Big Blue Nation and when I killed his character off several of the people who read the story weren't too happy about it.

This time I'm not able to see him either. But all the same I'd love to meet him and tell him about a time in my life when I did use him as a model to write about.

Oh, honey. You and me both. "In the end, there can be only one." Used to give me the shivers.

Oh yeah, oh yeah. He's still my ideal for several characters I've modeled after him. Just finished a short and when hubby read, all he said he could picture was "the Highlander". I guess I nailed it! Love that man!

Oh yeah. He's still hot. I was bummed though when he cut his hair.

I cut my writing chops writing Highlander fan fiction. I even went so far as to adapt one of my short story concepts (minus the immortality because I write romantic suspense) into a novel published first by Cerridwen Press, and now that I own the rights, indie-published by me. There's still a little of Duncan in Blake in What's in a Name? although it's definitely not a Highlander story by any means.

I saw this at Muse and had to stop by to say I totally agree with you when it comes Adrian Paul! There is just something about him. Sex just oozes from him like molten lava!
