Werewolf Bootlegger for the WIN!

I’m on Team Werewolf. Find out more.

Where to even begin? So, Moira Rogers has not one, but two new books coming out very shortly. One features a vampire lumberjack, the other a werewolf bootlegger. And Moira (or rather the two wonderful women who are Moira, Bree & Donna) want to know which of the two has the most potential for awesome. Is it the vampire lumberjack or the werewolf bootlegger?

The answer is easy, of course. It's the Werewolf Bootlegger.

Now I love vamps, it's kind of a prerequisite to work on this blog. And lumberjacks are just hot, really. The combination of vampire and lumberjack is a formidable one, but if there is one combination that can blow the vampire lumberjack straight out of the treetops, it's a werewolf bootlegger.

I mean come on! Vamps are sexy, but they're also whiter than chalk, cold and undead. Bring on the werewolves! They're the whole package wrapped in a beyond-mortal body that still has a beating heart. Every now and then a girl wants something warm blooded, ya know? And I can handle a little extra hair when the trade off is a pulse and an erotic animalistic streak.

Now, let's look at the chosen professions. Lumberjacks are cool and all, I mean you have to respect the hardworking blue collar professions. But where's the excitement? Where's the danger? No, losing a finger in a tragic ax accident doesn't count. That's not the sexy kind of danger I find appealing and, to my knowledge, vamps aren't part earthworm. What's cut off does not regenerate. Ew.

Now bootlegging, that's far more interesting. I've got a thing for anti-hero bad boys, and here we have a werewolf flaunting governmental regulations to get the people what they want. He's a rebel, a freedom fighter, an underground activist. It's like the alcoholic version of Robin Hood with tommy guns instead of bows and arrows. Besides, one of the hottest things about lumberjacks is the thought of them coming home hot and sweaty and ready to go after a day hard at work. Vampires don't sweat, which is a bonus on the olfactory front, but defeats the purpose of the fantasy. Really, you're just going to have a tired, cold guy in flannel coming home from a hard day of labor. Would the strenuous work even add muscle mass? Do vamps have muscle mass? And are they really going to be keyed up for other activities after a day of playing in the treetops? If so, there may be other, more disturbing issues at work (Cough dendrophilia cough). Yeah, the fantasy's dead. When the Were gets home from delivering bootleg booze to speakeasys and gentlemen's clubs, however, you know what's going to be on his mind. Rawr.

Speaking of flannel, this isn't the early '90s grunge scene. Would you rather have your man in a nasty flannel shirt and worn out jeans smelling of wood chips and possibly carrying the remnants of poison oak, or a sharp, gangster-style pinstripe suit with a hip flask?

Finally, I leave you with two words as my closing argument, take them as you will:

Doggy style


I'd be a werewolf bootlegger's moll any day!

I'm sorry. Did you say something? I'm still stuck on Doggy Style. Wow that hits the spot! Go Team Werewolf Bootlegger!

A Simple Love of Reading said...

TEAM WEREWOLF BOOTLEGGER! Ya I kinda forgot everything you said after I read "Doggy Style"! There really is nothing more to say I mean cold and dead vs. warm and alive...never mind their professions...it's the men who are going to be in your beds at night...oh gee, that's right with a vampire you have to change your whole lifestyle just to have a little quality time, where a werewolf will be at your side 24/7! ;)

Keira of LoveRomancePassion said...

Oh good point with the doggy sex - luckily vampires can do that too... lol

BreiaB said...

RAWR! Love the post and I agree it was hard to keep up after I saw doggy style. You also have to remember that you'd have to only drive at night if you wanted a vacation. No plane rides unless you put him in the baggage area( in a coffin no less)

Tori [Book Faery] said...

We are all such perverts. I love it.

Werewolves all the way. Doggy style and free booze... what more can a girl ask for? :)

I was a little surprised that you're on the right team (hehe), since your blog is Vamps R Us, but I'm so glad you see the winningness of a living & breathing werewolf bootlegger. : )

Raonaid Luckwell said...

Pinstrips just doesn't do anything for me.. But the idea of being near nekkie, with less clothing, now that really revs my motor.

Tracie said...

For the sake of sides, I have to go Team Vampire Lumberjack. Nothing says sexy like a man jacking some lumber. (Ohhh the images.)
No promises but I might reconsider with the right incentive. SKIN! :)
I can't wait to add both of these to my collection!

Cathy M said...

I totally agree, it's Team Werewolf for me too.

John said...

I come from a long line of lumberjacks. I'll take the family biz and some pesky soul issues over the uncontrolled furry and controlled substances.
Go Team Vampire Lumberjack!

Zina Lynch said...

A new team, a civil war, a revolution!!!
Team Werevamp Wolfjack
YES!!! I agree I want both too, yeah, the start of a new revolution, I'd love to be in the middle between these two sexy men, a new team. I'm with you, team Werevamp wolfjack, how does that sound?
I had just started to post the following on some of the blogs starting with Blackravens.
I can be a trouble maker, I want both, shame on me huh,blame it on some really good posts numbering the wolf advantage of being able to be out at all times of the day and the fact that he's warm and really alive and can share a real meal of food. Although the wolfie can take care of me 24/7 and the vamp can only manage about half, maybe they won't mind sharing, I wouldn't mind it. After all why can't I have my cake and eat it too.
Hope everyone doesn't want to stake me out but I really want both.
Zina
Viva le revolution, for those that to switch to both, come join us, make your voice heard.

Melissa said...

I am SO with you. Love the two words... LOL!

Team Werewolf Bootlegger! YES!

One 2 Try said...

I am Team Werewolf Bootlegger. There is something sexy about howling, and full moons.

vvb32 reads said...

It's like the alcoholic version of Robin Hood with tommy guns instead of bows and arrows. - interesting point. i'm team swiss, but giving this round to the weres ;-D

Kristen said...

hm. I am reconsidering.. no no no no no. Yes. maybe.. no.. Sorry, still team Vampire Lumberjack!

Anne J said...

Exactly, finally someone that I agree with. Warm blooded all the way. And a bootlegger is much sexier than lumberjack. Chopping down trees vs. booze is no choice at all.

Bailey H. said...

mbreakfield said...

You can't beat werewolves for sexiness and loyalty. Team Werewolf!
