Okay folks. You did not disappoint with your nominations for the handsome Dr. Vecchio last week (which are still open and will remain so until the end of the contest, just letting you know) but now it’s time for our favorite librarian. Here’s a quick snippet from A Hidden Fire:
Despite her rather common accent, the girl’s voice held a faint quality which told him at least one of her parents was a native Spanish speaker. Her thick, black hair was pulled into a low ponytail at the nape of her neck, and she was dressed in a black button-down shirt and slim skirt. He smiled when he saw the tops of her tall Doc Marten boots almost touching her knees.
Hmm, more style than looks, you say? Well, here’s a bit more:
[Giovanni] smirked at her obvious look of approval, noting the small ruby piercing in her nose that caught the ﬂorescent lights of the reading room. Her eyes were lined in black, her skin was fair, and though she did not have classically beautiful features, he thought her dramatic looks would be eye-catching even from a distance.
Vague? Well, yes! I like to let readers create their own picture in their minds, so here’s your chance. Tell me how you see Beatrice De Novo from A Hidden Fire. Remember, anyone who offers a nomination will be entered for the ARC of Elemental Mysteries # 3, The Force of Wind. And to give you a sense of her style, I included the Polyvore set I created for her, as well. Show me what you see, oh imaginative readers!
