Villainy Unmasked

Today I'm at the Samhellion Blog, talking about villains - are they pure evil or just misunderstood? Do you have a favorite villain? Someone you just love to see be bad?

Leave me a comment here and tell me who your villain of choice is. One lucky commenter will win these three Romantic Suspense novels (chock full o' villainy!).

(Winner must have a US mailing address where I can send the books. Sorry, my international friends!)



My favorite villain is and probably always will be Hans Gruber (I hope that's right - I didn't check my facts)in Die Hard. I know that's a movie not a book, but that's who popped into my head.

I like the kind of villain that is redeemable. My current fave is Razvan from Christine Feehan’s Carpathian books. For a few books he was the bad guy, but later he got his own HEA after several things were learned about him and happened for him.
Of course, some series benefit from having a truly evil, unredeemable bad guy. J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger books just wouldn’t be the same without the Omega and his lessors.

Villian, huh? On television I'd have to with Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer when he was bad. Now, books...I don't really like villians, but in Kim Harrison's book I do like/hate Al, the demon who is out to get her:) He's sarcastic, and charming in a demonic "I want to kill you" way:)

Hello, my trio of contestants! Y'all have hellagood odds because I was sick in bed today and forgot to spread the word about the contest. Oops. But good for you. :)

And the winner is... Beth! Just email me your mailing addy ( and I'll get your books on their way to their new home!

I gotta agree that Hans Gruber & Spike are both excellent film/TV villains. Kelly Armstrong is sitting on my TBR stack right now, but I might have to jump her up the line because Al sounds like my kinda demon. And the Lessers are just ookie, what with the literal cutting out of hearts and all. Woot, villains!
