Romancing the Blog

It doesn't have quite the same ring as Romancing the Stone, huh? Oh well.

It's time for another Girl Talk Thursday post!

If you were in a romance novel, what would be your name/story?

The name part of the question is easy. I'm of Russian descent (which I constantly remind people when I've had a few too many vodka drinks) and have always been in love with Russian names. So if I had to pick a name for myself, it would be: Svetlana, Nadia, or Tatiana. Those names are much sexier than Cheryl.

My romantic counterpart, the most important part of this fantasy, should be a vampire, wear a uniform (preferably Marine Corps Dress Blues), or be a uniform-wearing vampire. ☺

The story? He's a teacher, and I'm his student. Oh, wait. Nope, that's my real-life romance story (see #7 in the linked post). Hm. I'm not a huge fan of the damsel-in-distress story (sorry, Bella Swan). I would much prefer to be doing the initial rescuing, and then my sexy stud can come to my aid if and when I get in trouble (think: Sookie Stackhouse - minus the sex with every supernatural she comes into contact with, because sex with werewolves [and dogs] is just gross [looking at you, Jacob Black] - though I wouldn't mind the actual sex she has [citing book 4, chapter 6 for the third time on my blog]). I'm sorry, was I talking about something?

The story, right. Suffice it to say that I would "ride in on my white horse" to save my dudemar, and he would spend the better part of his life showing me how - grateful - he is. Sorry, I guess my imagination is not as vivid as Tatiana's. (See what I mean about the sexy Russian name?)

And speaking of romance... for my fellow Patrick Swayze fans, if you missed last night's Dancing with the (non)Stars tribute, take a look below (just be sure to have tissues handy).

A uniform-wearing vampire? I can totally dig that.

You are hilarious, dude.

LOL love that you want to do the rescuing.

I'm choosing to ignore your Jacob comment. ehemm. Love your story! The one thing I never liked about romance novels is how women have to be saved in one way or another.

I'm digging the name Tatiana (a href=" I'm imagining Sean Connery saying it with his oh so sexy accent haha. Why aren't there anymore Irish men around??!! They're perfect for romance. I think he could have made a good Dudemar haha....I seriously did not know what that was.

I loved that Patrick Swayze tribute. Thanks for posting it.

Um, if you don't write the uniform wearing vampire book/story someone else is going to. That is a FANTASTIC idea!!

Sorry, I wouldn't normally jump in here, but it needs to be said. Sean Connery is Scottish. For shame.
