Guess the book

Last week I read a book and stumbled upon a description which instantly made me think; Did I not read that is someone else's book already? I was so stupified because I thought there was only one character with that kind of hair!

Here is the quote:
Her breath caught in her throat. Never in her life had she seen a more handsome man.
At first glance his hair was dark brown, but in reality it was made up of all colors; ash, auburn, black, brown, mahogony, even some blond. She'd never seen hair like that on anyone. Long and wavy, it was pulled back into a sexy ponytail.

Everyone who has read J.R. Ward immediately thinks Phury, right? Well, I wasn't reading Lover Enshrined or any other BDB book. So I wonder, does any of you know who this character is with the same kind of hair as Phury?

I just had to google images of Phury...see if anything like that kind of hair actually excitst...without coming from a bottle. such color but I found men with heads of hear 0.0 They so make me green with envy:

 Okay...perhaps not a wild mane of hair but *drool* he's so good to look at ;)

 Now this is a mane...dear lawd, he would make Shakira look green with envy at that!

Love this guys face...even with all that hair...he's still all man to me!!

Can't wait to hear who you think the quote guy is ;)

Happy 2012!


Hello book readers, -writers and friends of ROOB,

Time does fly by rather quickly! We remember like the day of yesterday that January 1, 2011 came to meet us, but here we stand on January 4th 2012, with a new year ahead of us, like a book yet to be written, the pages blank, and adventures still layed out as planns in our head, but adventurous 2012 will be.

2011 has been a year of changes for us all at Realms On Our Bookshelves, personally as well as professionally. Drastic and dramatic turnarounds had us jiggling our schedules and timetables, reading became a bit more dormant, but now that we are settled in our "new" lives we wanted to pick things up again at the ROOB-blog.

So many great upcoming bookreleases are just around the corner from best-selling authors to debut-authors, which we are ofcourse all looking forward to.

Here are a few to look forward to in the next few months:

Ofcourse many more are to be released and will be mentioned in future blogposts.

So what will 2012 hold in store for us one might wonder? Well so do we. We are planning on weekly posting containing ofcourse bookreviews, book-pimping and ocassionally author-interviews, contests or whatever idea comes to play around in our minds. We want to be more active again and liven up our blog. We know we've been neglecting it a bit and honestly said it felt lonely, but our blog needs to cry no more, we're back and will give it the loving warmth we've always given it before.

We have to pleasure to tell you us ROOB-girls will all attend the Love Letter Convention in Germany, Berlin in June this year. We are very excited about that and are ofcourse looking very much forward to meeting the attending authors and fellow booklovers our there!

We all hope you had a marvellous Christmas and sparkling festive new year and wish you all a happy, healthy, loving but most of all a bookaliscious 2012!

Love always,

The ROOB-girls
