When you read a novel, do you imagine a favorite movie star as the hero? I do sometimes. I love classic and contemporary movie stars. I’ve even watched silent movies and discovered that Rudolph Valentino looks smoldering.
In my contemporary novel, Waiting for Cary Grant, one of the characters has a Cary Grant obsession. She’s a therapist who is treating the hero’s client:
Harlan Michaels is a powerful trial lawyer who usually flees romance as quickly as his Gucci loafers can carry him. He’s immersed in a deadly wheel case when he meets Lana Stewart, a therapist, who is treating his orphaned client. He’s immediately intrigued by the long legged blonde’s indifference to his wealth and stature. Lana longs for a romance that’s like an old Cary Grant movie.
And then there’s the cute opposing attorney, Stephanie. When Stephanie
asks Harlan to tell her something honestly, he replies,
“I’m a lawyer and I’m your opponent.
I’m a man and I’m attracted.
And you ask for honesty?
No way, Stephanie.”
