Let’s face it, a good kiss will make me melt and remind me why the hell I write about everlasting love in the first place. So, in keeping with my blog tour theme of top ten lists, I thought I would list some of my favorite or most inspiring lip locks of all time:
10.) Eric and Shelley at the end of The Crow
Because after watching everything that man went through for two hours in the name and honor of his girlfriend, he SO deserved that kiss.
I literally searched Google for hours – maybe even days looking for the final scene from this mind-blowing movie. No luck. But believe me, when Lenny finally realizes what he has, reaches out and friggin’ claims it with a toe curling kiss that I felt through the screen and into my living room, it was a big payoff. *fans self* Seriously, if you haven’t seen this movie, buy it. The kiss alone is worth it. (Although, Juliet Lewis singing, “I can hardly wait” kinda rocks it too.)
Ah, Sara and Michael. One of my fav. tv couples EVER. I was not so much a fan of the first kiss in the prison, simply because of his motivation. But his second kiss on the train to Chicago was for all the right reason. *sigh*
James McAvoy and whoever she was, uh Christina Ricci, in Penelope. The kiss at the end of this movie made me fall in love in James McAvoy, a guy who would normally NEVER make my radar. Good gravy, his mouth should be outlawed in four states. Men, boys, grandpa’s take notes! He is the perfect hero, in this scene. He’s utterly dominant and yet shows vulnerability, need and longing in the way he touches and looks at her. Awesome.
Two characters straight out of my favorite book of all time. Now, I’m too young to like the original movie. That Omar dude played a bad guy in a Benji movie, so every time I look at him, I think EVIL! Same with Tom Berenger bc of Platoon. But that’s a different blog. Anyway, this is a remake from PBS and OMG, I adore everything about this movie. Especially, these two freakishly gorgeous people.
5.) Kate and Sawyer in Lost
Because holy hannah, did I ever want to be an actress in my life when Sawyer kissed Kate the way he did in that scene. Uh. *thud* Wow.
It may be shocking, but this is the kiss that made me fall in love with Jake Gyllenhaal.
3.) Ryan Goseling and Rachel McAdams
Okay, sort of fiction, sort of not, as they were dating at the time. But wow, Rachel McAdams and Ryan Goseling accepting their MTV movie award for best kiss. Humana, humana…what’s my name? And why do I have this sudden urge to have Ryan Goseling’s babies?
If only because it is my fav movie ever made and it makes me cry everytime I watch it.
1.) Arthur and Gwen from Merlin.
This is the second time they kiss in season two and I absolutely loved this kiss. I literally rewound and watched it until I had it memorized. The way his face passes through shock, to desire is swoon-worthy. The muscles of his jaw relaxed, his eyes softened and then BAM! He was in it to win it!
Okay, so now that I’ve got you all hot and bothered *grin* Let me direct your attention to my latest release, SHADOW OF THE VAMPIRE, which is full of smokin’ hot kisses, btw.
Here is the blurb for SHADOW OF THE VAMPIRE:
Even vampires should never sleep with the enemy.
Vampire princess Alexia Feodorovna has been undead for 125 years, so it’s been a while since any man has made her pulse race. Until Declan Black. One look at his bronzed body and a fire like no other consumes her. Then she discovers that he’s a dragon lord come to take revenge on the vamps who killed his parents. And claim a crystal said to imbue its owner with incredible powers.
Alexia is ordered to torture and kill the dragon lord. Yet with each reckless encounter, she finds herself consumed by his fiery passion. A passion Declan battles, as well. Will he be able to resist the fire of lust she kindles within him and keep revenge in his heart? Or will he risk everything to quench the burning desire and claim the vampire as his own?
