PHS Hugh Jackman Tour 2007

Fortunately it's effortless to find pictures of this man on the web. I've used up a fair few on my PHS blog this morning but I've still got one or two more! If you've absolutely no idea what I'm talking about you need to pop over to the Pink Heart Society and read all about the annual Hugh Jackman Tour!!

I've narrowed my personal selection down to two.

Hugh Jackman - the family man.

I'm still not sure about his beard but this is a lovely, natural photo of Hugh with his wife Deborra-Lee and their daughter Ava Eliot Jackman.

Only then I came across this one of Hugh Jackman in front of BOOKS. That has to be about perfect! You choose.

And here, as promised on my PHS blog today, is Sandra Garcia-Myers review of my Niroli book, 'The Tycoon's Princess Bride', for the Romantic Times Magazine.

Princess Isabella Fierezza wants reclusive Domenic Vincini to build a resort she hopes will increase tourism to Niroli. A scarred burn victim who tried, but ultimately failed, to rescue his family from a fire, Domenic senses something in his soul awaken when he meets Isabella. But he's afraid of caring too deeply for someone, so he rejects her. But Isabella doesn't give up that easily. Will he realize, before it's too late, how lucky he would be to have a second chance at love? Natasha Oakley's beautifully crafted story shimmers with emotion. The Tycoon's Princess Bride (4.5), the newest addition to the Royal House of Niroli series, is a terrifically poignant tale about looking beneath the surface to the soul and recognizing your soul mate.

Reviews honestly don't come lovelier than that! And it was a TOP PICK which is just pure icing on the cake.

    I admit Hugh on the sofa is nice - if a little smooth. BUT the upside down one ...?

  • At 11:29 pm, Blogger Trish said…

    Right - think of what way you had to put your head to look at that one...!!!!

    Now you know what it would be like to have Hugh beside you on the pillow.... ;)

    Now let's look at this clearly. You've got a picture of Hugh lying on the FLOOR. That's uncomfortable! If I'm being picky I'm not sure I like the vein lines on his forehead.

    Picture 2 you have him frowning. Nice jumper tho.

    Picture 1 is a repeat from last year and he looks, dare I say it, a little smug.

    I WIN!

    Weeelllllll YOUR picture one has him SIDE ON with SUNGLASSES and UNSHAVEN with his WIFE... where's the hero inspiration in THAT I ask you?????

    But look at those strong arms holding that baby!!

    AND I reckon the pink ones are my hardbacks - before they went dark pink.

    Nice. All I can say is verrrry nice...


  • At 11:44 pm, Blogger Trish said…

    ONE PINK COPY????? O-N-E...

    And seriously - you get hero inspiration from ARMS??? Shall I bring up the nutcracking line??? SHALL I????

  • At 11:47 pm, Blogger Natasha said…

    There's two pink copies and the rest of my books are just out of the picture.

    AND certainly arms are VERY important. What kind of books are you writing??????

    The review is lovely, Natasha.

    As are your pictures of Hugh.

  • At 7:38 am, Blogger Sue aka MsCreativity said…

    Hmm... you've almost converted me to liking Hugh with facial hair. Definitely LOVE him as the family man - and arms are also VERY important in a hero, imho.

    Congrats on the TOP PICK! :-D
