The perfect Friday displacement activity!

I have a thing about voices. I think they can be incredibly seductive. In the second of my trilogy books, The Scandals of an Innocent, Alice reflects on the fact that Miles was almost able to seduce her with his voice alone, he was so smooth!

Discovering the Carte Noir coffee adverts online was always going to be a treat for me. This is the next best thing to watching Dominic West play Darcy in Pride and Prejudice and the perfect displacement activity for my Friday morning when I should be revising my Arctic manuscript. I don't drink much coffee, but that's beside the point. I love both Dominic West and Pride and Prejudice in just about equal measure so that's my tea break sorted. Here's the link:

Oh, and you can also experience Greg Wise and Dan Stevens reading to you simply for your pleasure and gratification. Thank goodness I was sitting comfortably - I almost melted!

Enjoy!

I'm with you, Nicola! Voices are wonderful things. As for a man who can still seduce ME "with his voice alone", and has for years, here's my offering:

Ooh, thanks for sharing, Susanna!

Margaret, I really enjoyed Dominic West in The Devil's Whore and LOVE listening to his voice!

I'm glad to see someone else has a thing about voices too ... they can be incredibly sexy! I've always thought Keanu Reeves' voice in Speed was delish! And, I could go on about some others too ...

LOL, Anonymous, I am happy you enjoyed it! Kristina, I totally agree about Keanu Reeves in Speed. In fact when I read your comment I had to go and watch it again!
