OMG! James Spader’s voice melts me!

I never read Marvel comics as a kid. If they existed in our house, my older brother would have had them and they’d be out of bounds for this girl. I’m making up for lost time now through the movies. Sadly, I’m more into them than my kids and its not just the perfectly toned butts or Chris Hemsworth’s biceps (although they are drool-worthy). LOL I’m loving all of the Avengers more or less equally: Thor, The Hulk, even goodie Captain America floats my boat. Loki … lets just all swoon together. But the movie I’m looking forward to most has my favorite actor, James Spader, as the voice of the bad guy.

*shivers*

We have to wait till May 2015 for Avengers: Age of Ultron. I don’t know how I’ll cope. Aside from James’ awesome Ultron voice, the new trailer below features two moments I’m dying to see explained: Captain America’s vibranium shield split in half, and what seems to be a nice moment between Natasha Romanov and The Hulk. Since he scared the hell out of her in the first Avengers movie, I’m wondering how they get to that point. Must be good.

Are you a superhero fan? Did I miss a moment in the trailer you want to see too? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

The next wicked Hunt Club novella is available for preorder now:

NaG_DC250NEVER A GENTLEMAN

HUNT CLUB, BOOK 5

Victor Knight has never been able to juggle his work and love life to anyone’s satisfaction. A hardworking investment banker in London, he’s obsessed with maintaining his clients’ privacy and profits, and cannot understand why those same clients are withdrawing funds when he’s making them a good profit. When a dull evening supper at the Hunt Club ends in a blunt invitation to have sex with the Earl of Beecroft, he welcomes the distraction on the proviso they never discuss his business affairs.

 Daniel Wellham, the Earl of Beecroft, has long admired Victor Knight. He even understands and admires the banker’s preoccupation with work. Their night together is everything he hoped it would be and while he longs for permanence, his secret life as a spy means he can never reveal too much of his own history. Unfortunately, when he realizes that all is not right in Victor’s life, those promises he made to keep his nose out of the banker’s business means he cannot offer to help or explain that his latest mission might take him away forever. How can love and trust be possible when duty and responsibility prevent total honesty?

In Her Image – Part 7

Welcome back for more In Her Image, a work in progress, a regency mystery story I’ve been sharing on my website.

The story so far: Lord Wade is investigating the death of a young woman. Her body is found in Grosvenor square with no identification and no immediate explanation of how she died.

If you’re new to the story, you can read the beginning here and then follow on with the sample below.

The woman shrugged. “I do not, but her situation is familiar to me. I know nothing of her killer or their motives.”

Damn. He was exactly back to where he’d begun, except—“Why do you believe she was in someone’s employ?”

The woman glanced at the body and then rubbed her arms. “Her shoes don’t match her gown’s quality.”

Damon blinked and looked at the girl again. He’d been so caught up with the manner of her position, the sightless fright in her eyes that he’d failed to notice the scuffed quality of the shoes. He moved closer to them. Short half-boots, more suited to strident walking than the party the dress implied, and well used. The left heel worn down lower than the right. He’d assumed her returning from an evenings entertainment and set upon. But often the smallest detail led him on a divergent path.

The girl did not come from money, but she might work for a well-to-do family and be wearing cast off clothes. “Thank you.”

“She’s long gone.” Andrew chuckled. “Said her peace and left you to ponder it, and ponder it you have for several long minutes.”

Damon spun about but the veiled woman and burly servant were no longer in sight. He’d been too wrapped up in his thoughts to notice that she’d taken her leave. “Damn. She might have had further insights to share.”

Andrew closed the distance between them. “Do you not even notice the living anymore? Your obsession with solving every act of villainy is robbing you of your life.”

 Thanks so much for reading.
