Characters in Love: Dana Michelle Burnett's Ideal Guy

Wednesday, February 8, 2012
Today, Dana Michelle Burnett, author of Spiritus, is here to talk about her ideal guy.

Becca McAllister has always been different from other girls her age. Never part of the "in crowd", Becca never really fit in anywhere. When her mother, her father moves them to the small town of Corydon, Indiana. There, Becca accidentally makes contact with Alastor Sinclair, a seductive spirit that haunts the halls of her new home and who seems to see straight into her soul.

The closer they get, the more Becca realizes that this isn't the first time she and Alastor have known each other. Worse still, is she the one responsible for his death so long ago? And if so, did he come back for love or revenge?

My Ideal Guy
Dana Michelle Burnett

First, a big thanks to Kris for allowing me to participate in the Characters in Love Event. It’s strange to think about what makes up my ideal guy, but since I’ve been working on the Spiritus series the past year, my number one requirement is that he be alive and not a ghost!

When I think of my ideal guy, I think of someone romantic, but not to the point of being corny. Don’t come at me with a goofy smile talking about moonlight and roses! When I have the flu, be willing to go two counties over to get me my favorite cheesecake brownies without expecting a medal. I don’t expect a man to be the love of my life anymore, but I want him to be the love that I can’t live without.

As far as appearance, that varies depending on my mood. On Mondays, I love the dark mystery of Johnny Depp, the abs of Taylor Lautner, the soulful eyes of Patrick Dempsey, and the boyish smile of Bradley Cooper. Each one of these has qualities that I find irresistible, but none of them are the “perfect” guy. On Tuesdays, the sexiness of Orlando Bloom takes center stage. Wednesdays tend to bring out love of the bad boy and Johnny Depp is back, maybe with a little of Charlie Sheen’s crooked grin. Starting to get the idea?

So, I guess since there is no brownie getting Depp-Lautner-Dempsey-Cooper-Bloom-Depp-Sheen hybrid out there; I’ll just have to make do creating heroes in my novels that fit into that ever changing mold and look for love among mere mortals.

  1. Omg, this line: " Depp-Lautner-Dempsey-Cooper-Bloom-Depp-Sheen hybrid" killed me! BWAHAHA, too funny!

    Awesome post!

  2. I completely agree - a romantic guy who's not corny! Meaningful romance is so much better than just lip-service and platitudes. Quirky kind of nerdy romance is even better:))
