Even though I’m well into the story already, I’ve spent all this time trying to decide who I want to picture as my hero & heroine of PROJECT: RUNAWAY HEIRESS, the first book in my upcoming “Project: Passion” series for Harlequin Desire.
There are going to be three books to start, one about each of the three Zaccaro sisters—Lily, Juliet, & Zoe. Book 1 (PROJECT: RUNAWAY HEIRESS) is about eldest sister, Lily, who runs off to Los Angeles & meets the sexy CEO of a British clothing company, Nigel Statham.
And of course these people have to be gorgeous, right? Lily is also smart, so her celebrity counterpart has to reflect that.
All three sisters are blonde, so I think I’ve decided to use Reese Witherspoon as my inspiration for Lily Zaccaro.
She’s pretty & stylish, bright & savvy, just like Lily. What do you think?
Then for Nigel, I’m picturing him a little blond. (Don’t ask me why; I normally avoid blond heroes because I know they don’t translate well on covers & that publishers usually avoid doing too blond, regardless of an author’s description in the book.)
But for some reason, I seem to be leaning toward Simon Baker.
Maybe with some shorter, less wavy hair…
With maybe a bit of this guy thrown in:
I don’t even know who he is, but he’s working for me big-time when I picture Nigel. :howyoudoin
