Sexy Richard?

Loyalty - Matthew           Lewis

So I've read about evil Richard, nice-guy Richard, just a man of the times Richard, and of course loyal Richard. This is the first book that has made me think of Hollywood sexy Richard. During the battle and fight scenes, I was tempted to picture Clive Owen (think Shoot Em Up), but that wasn't quite right. No, for the remainder of this novel, I will be picturing Francios Arnaud as my Richard. (Seriously, why haven't I thought of doing this earlier?!) Thankfully, in his role as Cesare Borgia, he is even dressed as close to the time period of Richard III as Hollywood gets.


And now you all will want to read it too. You're welcome. ;-)
