★✩★ Meet Delilah Brooks ★✩★

Dottie, aka Delilah Brooks, is the (super) star of my second book. When I picture Dottie in my head, an image of actress Jasika Nicole always pops up (you might know her better as ‘Astrid’ from the Fringe – though their personalities are very divergent). Here’s a little bit more about Dottie:Hardwood's Harlots: Delilah Brooks

★ Looks: Petite, chocolate, springy haired fire cracker
★ Occupation: Dancer at Hardwood’s Burlesque, Mimi’s right-hand woman, best friend and financial advisor

★ Demeanor: tiny and mighty, a tornado force to be reckoned with, protective and nurturing

★✩★ Meet Marcus Hale ★✩★

Now, let’s meet Marcus Hale. He made a brief appearance in Jizziebelle as well. He’s a serial lady killer (one smoldering look and you’re dead), with the wit and charm to make his looks an even more deadly combination.

Hardwood's Harlots: Marcus Hale★ Looks: Woof! Meooow! OMG.. yeah, he’s got em’ and he knows how to use them too!
★ Occupation: Waiter at Hardwood’s Burlesque, and also going to school
★ Hobbies: Girls, Girls, Girls!
★ Bedroom Behavior: Unpredictable, a little bit dark and definitely dominating. He can alternate between sexual aggression and subtle seduction with something akin to superpowers. He is very persuasive.
★ Demeanor: Smooth, charismatic, observant, intelligent, he’s able to charm the panties off just about any girl (and probably a few guys too if he was interested), with ease, but isn’t at all forthcoming with his own details.. a bit of an enigma. Sex and emotion have always been easy for him to completely separate.. until now…

★✩★ Meet Mimi Schotkins ★✩★

Hardwood's Harlots: Mimi SchotkinsDottie’s best friend, and the owner of Hardwood’s Burlesque!

★ Occupation: Owner of Hardwood’s Burlesque, and Stage Announcer
★ Hobbies: match making
★ Bedroom Behavior: someday we may find out… ;~}
★ Demeanor: radiant, grounded, unflappable, nurturing, calm, yet energized

– when I think of Mimi, actress Connie Britton comes to mind – she wasn’t an inspiration while I was writing, but when I went looking for someone who embodied Mimi’s qualities, she’s who immediately came to mind for me
