With the Quarter Finals well on their way, we have a few treats for you! Some of the authors were kind enough to give the Hero's opinion on the Showdown! Hear what Zacharel has to say about his continuing success.... :)
Both Zacharel and Michael Sterling are here fresh from close races against Declan Chase and Lahn. And it is the WICKED Showdown - WICKED NIGHTS v WHEN HE WAS WICKED (I wish I could say I planned that, but I am just NOT that clever.... :)) Don't forget, to check out any of the rounds or to find out what is yet to come, check out our Hero Showdown Homepage!
Zacharel - WICKED NIGHTS (Gena Showalter/Angels of the Dark)
Who? A warrior angel so cold icicles literally drip from his wings, Zacharel is one of the Seven in charge of ruling the heavens
What? Leader of the Army of Disgrace, a group of warrior angels so close to falling for their lack of human compassion that if one of them falls, they all fall
Mate? Annabelle, an unwilling demon consort as determined to protect Zacharel as he is to protect her
In his own words.... "I’ve got a joke about me and my competition. An angel and an Englishman walk into a bar...and everyone else runs out, screaming for mercy they aren’t gonna see. Wait. Did I say joke? I meant reality check."
What makes him special? Zacharel is the quintisential man who believes he is incapable of love, yet his actions show he not only capable, but loving. Whether it is care for his very disrespectful band of misfits, his Lords of the Underworld friends, or his woman, he is capable of more than he thinks. Yet it takes Annabelle to show him what he can truly be. What is more lovable than that?
"Annabelle Miller is imprisoned for killing her parents. Only she is innocent. It was demons that did it. Using that as a defense predictably got her thrown into a Ward for the Criminally Insane where she has languished for four years. When demons attack again, trying to get to her, Zacharel's army is sent to root out the demons. When Zacharel first meets her, the sparks fly and Zacharel's frozen insides - manifested by a constant blizzard around him - literally starts to thaw."
And can I just say.... I LOVE this cover. Very evocative - sweet and sexy at the same time! :)
And the competition....
Michael Sterling - WHEN HE WAS WICKED (Julia Quinn/The Bridgerton's)
Who? The Rake, then reformed Rake
What? Just a gloriously handsome man!
Mate? Francesca Bridgerton
What makes him special? “I fell in love with Michael Sterling many moons ago. Michael may be my favorite hero of the series.” Michael fell in love with Frannie on the eve of her wedding to his cousin, and loved her from afar for years. His cousin died and he became her best friend and confidant, nothing more, never pushing. He is probably the most selfless, loving hero in print. He was so perfect…and wicked!
"I loved the dance between Michael and Frannie. The power plays of who would lead and who would follow. I loved his ability be wicked and flirt, and how it dawns on Frannie that she can be a bit wicked, too! I enjoyed watching their friendship turn to something more, and how they handled it."
