Tease Me Tuesday

PhotobucketLast week, I shared a sneak peek from my April Harlequin Desire release, ON THE VERGE OF I DO with you. :peekaboo

This week, I want to show you the celebrity inspirations I used for Kara & Eli, the wonderful heroine & hero in ON THE VERGE OF I DO, then let you decide how close the actual book cover came to my original mental images. :winkwink

This is Kara Kincaid.  Even though her family is quite wealthy & runs the family business, Kincaid Shipping, she’s struck out on her own to start Prestige Events, where she does fabulous event planning—everything from weddings to anniversary parties to bar mitzvahs.  When the story opens, she is actually planning a wedding for her sister, Laurel Kincaid, who is engaged to…

…Eli Houghton.  Oh, yes, a wrench in the works.  And sparks—lots & lots of sparks. :cuffs

This is Eli Houghton.  Rich & quite handsome, he started out in the foster care system, but ended up a self-made millionaire with a string of luxury hotels & resorts filling his impressive business portfolio.  When the story opens, he is engaged to Kara’s sister, Laurel…  But the heart wants what it wants, & when Laurel gets cold feet, Eli realizes Kara is the Kincaid sister he should really be with.

So whadda ya think? :peekaboo

    I can’t wait until y’all get to read the story & can really picture the h/h. Altho, the cover does a great job, so it won’t hurt to flip the book closed a couple times while reading as a refresher. :winkwink

    Well this will work for the rest of them, but I’m going with my Bradley for the hero….but then that’s not a surprise is it!?!? hehehe.

    I do like your choices though and if I have to, I have NO problem with Patrick as Eli. Or Chris Pine (cause he looks good in a suit too. And out of it come to think about it). :dropmouth

  6. Laura J. says:

    or Chris H.
    or Alexander
    or Aaron
    or Adam
    or Gabriel (although not 100% sold on his temper…if it’s true or not will be the deciding factor)
    or Dylan
    or Michael
    or Henry (Eli can be British, can’t he?!?)

  7. Fedora says:

    ooh… Nice!! Looking forward to this, Heidi!

  8. Heidi says:

    LOL After you’ve all read it, I can’t wait to hear who YOU can picture as Eli & Kara…in the blockbuster movie version, of course. :blowkiss

    • Laura J. says:

      I think I may need to look up some more choices, do some more research. One can never be too prepared. :winkwink

  9. Jessica Lemmon says:

    Oh, yes, that’s my boyfriend Patrick Dempsey isn’t it? :blowkiss Good choice! I preordered this today. :twirl I was ON THE VERGE OF doing it last week but got busy. :muahaha
