All you have to do is describe my hero, Killian, in terms of chocolate (based on the blurb and excerpt) Ė ie. what kind of chocolate does he remind you of? Iíll choose the description I think fits him best and will post it on this forum (with your permission, of course).

smilies/candy.gifI would say that Killian reminds me of a nice hard outer chocolate shell with wonderful creamy caramel in the middle. You get the best of both worlds with something hard (but melts in your mouth and hands :giggle:) and something soft and warm in the middle ;).

Thank you! Yes, that sounds good to me, but then all chocolate usually sounds good to me - I'm a complete chocoholic (to add to my hoarding tendencies!) :)
Throwing out magazines - I find that hard too, but I've trained myself to just cut out the bits I like best, great photos and articles. But I can never throw away books!
Thanks again for your reply! :balloon:

I'd say that Killian is the sort of dark, rich chocolate you know you shouldnít have but you just canít resist.
June 23rd, 2010, 10:03 AM
I would hope so, Henriette!
Is there any kind of chocolate we CAN resist? For me, it would have to be the ones with marzipan or alcohol fillings, don't like those at all. Anything that's pure chocolate or has nuts though ... hmm, let's not go there or I'll have to go have a look in the fridge :)

How about deep rich Burgandy/Brandy chocolate...
June 23rd, 2010, 03:39 PM
Mmm, that sounds very sultry and definitely naughty (or is that a very British word?) - could fit Killian in any case!

I was thinking a Ferrero Rondnoir - this chocolate is like a Ferrero Rocher, but is a ball of crisp dark chocolate wafer, with a smooth and creamy dark chocolate middle - known as the "black pearl". I love dark chocolate, (yum, yum!!)Lusty Drool Smilie and think this gets to the inside and outside of the character Killian.
Great idea for a contest - this was fun!

Oh, I haven't tried those! I adore Ferrero Rochers, but I also love dark chocolate so that sounds very tempting - thanks for that, AnnaRose!

I was thinking M&M's. Doesn't melt in your hands but; melts in your mouth. You can melt but; he doesn't. :icecream: Cookiesmilies

Yes, melting sounds perfect! And I like your other comment about a hero being mysterious, that's always good - I forgot that one! A little bit of mystery adds spice, that's for sure. Thanks!smilies/cloud9.gif

I hope you had a great Jubilee day in your corner of CTR. The place looks like it was hopping with activity and I missed it because I was feeling under the weather and not my normal self.

Sorry to hear that, hope you're feeling better now? And I'm happy to chat any day, so no worries!
