Find Your Heroes' Soul Mates

SidneyKay again from Kay's Blog.

You didn’t think we’d let those hunky guys float out there all by themselves did you? Now it’s time to see how well you know what their soul mates look like. Remember, those men are dangerous, they cannot be trusted out there on their own. They need the love of a good woman and they are out there floundering around, probably taking up with loose women… they need their mates!

So, here’s what you need to do - just match the heroine with her description. That’s all! Anyone who participates in this quiz will qualify to be randomly selected as the winner of a lovely leather-bound writing journal (with Celtic designs). Winner will be announced Saturday, September 24 along with the answers. So have fun and don’t cheat!

A. …”he stared at her uncovered face. This was what she had kept hidden beneath the old-maid disguise…Pale, luminous skin, a mouth shaped with surprising lushness, a pert nose, marked at the delicate bridge where the edge of her spectacles had pressed. Angel-blue eyes, pure and beguiling, surmounted by dark winged brows. She was beautiful. He could have devoured her in a few bites, like a fragrant red apple.”

B. “Her hair is tarnished gold where the candlelight touches it, and where it doesn’t …richer – more like the light through dark ale as you pour it. She has it braided and coiled around her head. I believe she thinks that it’s a plain style, but she doesn’t realize the effect. It shows the curve of her neck and her throat, and makes a man think of taking it down and letting it spread out over his hands.”

C. “ Under the monstrous bonnet was a perfect oval of porcelain white, flawless countenance. Thick sooty lashes framed silver-grey eyes with an upward slant that neatly harmonized with the slant of her high cheekbones. Her nose was straight and delicately slender, her mouth soft and pink and just a fraction overfull. She was not classic English perfection, but she was some sort of perfection and, being neither blind nor ignorant, (─) recognized quality when he saw it.”

D. She was fun to look at when she wasn’t scowling: smooth milky skin, wide-set dark eyes, a blob of a nose and that lush, soft, full, rosy mouth…

E. “You look wonderful by candlelight, you know. Your eyes are like sherry in crystal, and your skin glows like ivory. A candlelight witch, you are. Perhaps I should disconnect the lamps permanently.”

F. “She was not at all what he’d expected…. She was certainly no ape-leading amazon; it was only when compared to Edwina, who barely touched five feet, that she would appear so tall. In fact, Miss (─) was quite pleasant-looking with thick, medium brown hair and dark eyes. Her skin pale, her lips pink, and she held herself with an air of confidence he could not help but find attractive.”

G. “He found it odd that he had never noticed her, when there was a great deal worth noticing. Her hair, the brightest shade of red he had ever seen, seemed to feed on the firelight glowing with incandescent heat. The slender wings of her brows and the heavy fringe of her lashes were a darker shade of auburn, while her skin was that of a true redhead, fair and a bit freckled on the nose and cheeks. … She had unfashionably full lips that were colored a natural rose, and large, round blue eyes…pretty but emotionless eyes, like those of a wax doll.”

H. “She was dressed far less finely than any of the other ladies. Indeed, when he had first set eyes - or eye - upon her, he had mistaken her for a servant. Her muslin dress was decent enough but not by any means in the first stare of fashion. Neither was she particularly young. She was well into her twenties, at a guess. She had a pretty, wide-eyed, rather round face, which – it had been impossible not to notice – was sun-bronzed. And, if that were not bad enough, there was a dusting of freckles across her nose. Her hair was dark and short and curly .”

I. “I have been meditating on the very great pleasure which a pair of fine eyes in the face of a pretty woman can bestow.”

J. “…concentrating on the older sister’s shortcomings so he could forget about her mouth. She’d had the potential to be as attractive as Amy - all that dark curly hair knotted on the top of her head, and a good enough ivory-pale face with those big brown eyes – but the tension had radiated off her so hard that it had been exhausting just standing next to her.”
