Something Wicked This Way...(After Dark Blog Hop)

Admit it . . . you love the bad boys.  At some point in a story, you’ve found yourself rooting for them.  There is just something about a steamy antagonist that is just oh-so-tempting.  (I can't help but think of Damon from Vampire Diaries)

And let’s face it.  You can’t have a story without one.  They drive the intensity; they propel the conflict all the way to climax.  If it weren’t for the villainous bad boys, the hero/heroine would lose their affect.  Not to mention, those bad boys are usually just, well, yummy.

And – if they are doing their jobs – they remind us of the darker parts of ourselves that perhaps we wish weren't really there, they make us secretly root for them or feel sorry for them – then they do something ungodly that reminds us why it really would just never work out, no matter how drop dead sexy they are.  The really great ones are those we can see as the protagonists of their own story, and perhaps –  if things had been a bit different –  they could have been the hero.

So . . . in honor of those oh-so-wicked bad boys, I'm doing a little giveaway. 

Leave a comment and tell me who your favorite bad boy is.  What character do you hate to love? 
(don't forget to leave your email addy so I can notify you if you win)

  7. My fav bad bot is Zsadist for the blck dagger brotherhood

  8. So excited this hop is finally here! Wicked to me means mischievous or roguish in a playful way.
    Some of my favorite naughty/wicked books are the “Pack/Pride” series by Shelly Laurenston, the “Dragon Kin” series by G. A. Aiken, the “Freakn’” series by Eve Langlais, the” Anita Blake” series by Laurel K. Hamilton, the “Breeds” series by Lora Leigh, and the “New Species” series by Laurann Dohner. They aren’t necessarily wicked, but they are wickedly good.
    My favorite “Bad Boy” is Smitty from Shelly Laurenston’s “The Beast In Him”. He is a real laid back kind of alpha male until you threaten someone he cares about. Then all bets are off and that BEAST comes out to kick ass.
    Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>
