Zorro ... Phantom Of The Opera ... Batman ... *happy content sigh* I suppose since we're all adults here it would be safe for me to admit to my costume fetish. Honestly, I don't have enough fingers and toes to count the many times I've watched these movies just so I can drool over the men in flowing black capes and black masks. First and foremost, it's erotic as hell, but there's also the intrigue and sense of danger that gets me going every time.
So yesterday, when I finally received the cover to my upcoming Loose Id release, Enough, I broke out into an uncontrollable fit of estatic clapping and yelling. (Scared the heck out of my poor dog, Amber). I couldn't be happier with the way Anne Cain designed it because she really brought my "masked stranger" fantasy to life. In Enough, my heroine, Morgan, is seduced by a man dressed in solid black - shirt, pants, cape, boots, mask - the whole nine yards. He never reveals his identity, but it's okay because that's the way she wanted it. Forget sharing names. All Morgan wants is the mystery and the excitement, and she definitely gets that. (Lucky woman!)
But anyway, back to the topic at hand. I'm curious to know if any of you out there are drawn to movies and books with costumed characters. (And I mean real people, not cartoons, because that's just wrong on so many levels. LOL)
While I wait on your answers, I'm going to go back to my worn out Phantom Of The Opera DVD and do somemore swooning over Gerard Butler in his sexy black cape and mask.
Ahhh yes ... life is good.
