CHARACTER CRUSH: BEAU BARRINGER
BOOK: NOELLE’S ROCK
AUTHOR: THERESA HODGES
Beau Barringer and Noelle Winter’s met at a precarious time in her life. Beau is a Rock Star, with a few trust issues when it comes to his privacy. Noelle will invade that privacy. Let’s find out what happens when a lady in distress meets the tall handsome stranger, in the middle of a blizzard.
1. How did Noelle and Beau react the first time she knocked on his door, that cold wintry night?
Noelle: I arrive at the big, wooden door and peer at the knocker under the lighted porch. The knocker is brass and carved in the face of a lion.
I shudder at the frightening lion with its mouth open and its teeth bared. I take a deep breath before I raise my hand to grasp the brass knocker and rap the knocker against the door. I look down at my wet boots; I realize the wetness from my Uggs has soaked through to my thick socks.
I wiggle my stiff, cold toes inside my boots and wrap my arms around myself to ward off the chill. It is so quiet and isolated out here. I feel like this house is in a place different from any other part of the world. As I look behind me into the darkness, I wonder who in their right mind would want to live out in the middle of nowhere. I shudder at the thought.
I wait a few seconds and begin to knock again. I nearly jump out of my skin when the door suddenly jerks open, and a tall man around six foot three glares at me as if he detests the very sight of me intruding on his existence.
Beau: “What do you want?” he growls out as he peeps over my shoulder as if he is expecting someone else, besides me, to be standing at his door at this time of the night.“Spit it out,” he growls again as I look up into his violent-blue eyes.
His eyes are the most unusual mixture of color I have ever seen. His longish, wavy, silky, black hair is tousled over his head. His face sports a neatly trimmed moustache that attaches itself to an equally neat close-cut beard. He would be one fine, handsome man if he could wipe that frown off of his face.
Is it hard for Beau to trust Noelle?
Beau: Yes, it is hard at first. Beau wants his privacy and he thinks that Noelle is a reporter. He acts all gruff and mean, to scare her away. But he soon learns that she is really who she says she is and he warms up to her.
Describe Beau’s Physical Appearance.
Noelle: Beau is 6’3” tall, muscular build and he has the most beautiful eyes. Sometimes. His eyes are a deep blue. And at other times they are a mysterious color that I can’t quiet define. His hair is black, silky and wavy. It feels like it has a life of its own.
What made Beau so protective of Noelle?
Beau: I am not the type of man to stand idly by, when someone needs my help. When I got to truly know Noelle, all I wanted to do was to make her happy. I want to protect her in a way where no one will ever hurt her again. What become mine, I never let go of.
What is it like to be loved by a man like Beau Barringer and what is it like to have Noelle’s love?
Noelle: I love him enough to let go. I hope Beau doesn’t take this the wrong way. I just want him to think about the words I’m about to say. I’m pregnant with another man’s child. A fact we seem to forget when we get caught up in our own little universe. I will start to show pretty soon and I don’t want to worry about a reporter popping out of the bushes every time we are together…I think we should end things now before I get hurt in the crossfire of his lifestyle. I have to concentrate on having a healthy baby and being the best mother I can to my baby.
Beau: I will never let her go. Ever. I hold Noelle tight and squeeze her like I never want to let her go. I don’t give a damn if she’s pregnant by another man. Her baby is a part of her, and I will love every part of her. I will be there for her baby in a way that that sorry excuse of a man, Victor, could never man up to be. I love Noelle and her unborn child. I have no qualms about being with her forever, and I didn’t even believe in long-lasting relationships before Noelle. Now that she’s my woman, I don’t ever want to hear her talk about leaving me, ever again. What would you do if the man you loved threw you out into the night, after you told him you were carrying his child? Would you fight for the love you once had, or walk away and begin to pick up the pieces of your life? Luckily for Noelle Winters, the meeting of a stranger puts her in the right place at the right time to take her out the cold and into the warmth of Rockstar Beau Barringer’s heart. The question is, will this unlikely connection survive color lines, distrust and the skeletons from the past.
