Ah yes, Helen Holt.  Beautiful, smart, calculating, ruthless, and batshit insane.  I actually think she’s scarier than Konrad.  Sure, Konrad is out there, but there are times when I wonder if we have men and women in our national security and intelligence agencies who are just as twisted as her.

I can’t remember who said it, but I saw someone on twitter suggest January Jones:

I think she would be good, but, I feel like suggesting an unknown.  This is Olivia Taylor Dudley of Five Second Films:

She has also recently been in The Chernobyl Diaries.  She might be a little young, but I can’t help being dazzled by those wicked blue eyes and arched eyebrows which remind me of Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct.  They just scream femme fatale.  Also, as these 5SF videos show, she does mean/evil/crazy really, really well.

Agree?  Disagree?  Got someone else in mind?  Let me know!

How did you hear about the Nathaniel Cade Series?

I read about Blood Oath in this NPR article.  A few days later I checked out the audiobook on iTunes.  At first, I laughed at the idea of Bronson Pinchot doing the narration; I kept thinking of his character on Perfect Strangers.  Still, I listened to the sample and decided to give it a chance.  The rest is history.

So how about you?

"Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree (With Anyone Else but Me)" is a popular song that was made famous by Glenn Miller and by the Andrews Sisters during World War II. Its lyrics are the words of two young lovers who pledge their fidelity while one of them is away serving in the war.

I think it’s interesting that Cade always thinks of this song when he sees her.  I wonder if he had any feelings for her before she changed.  

  • Receptionist:

    Thank you both for stopping by! If you gentlemen would like to call and make an appointment...

  • Cade:

    Enough. Get him out here, now.

  • Receptionist:

    Just one moment...

  • Zach:

    Smooth. Couldn't you hypnotize her or something?

  • Cade:

    It doesn't work like that.

  • Zach:

    I thought vampires were all sex gods with the ladies.

  • Cade:

    What gave you that idea?

  • Zach:

    Uhhh...late night TV mostly...

  • Cade:

    Humans are our food. Do you want to have sex with a cow?

  • Zach:

    Touche'!
