Sneak Peak: Poldark:Or Brooding Men In Tight Breeches
Tall, dark and brooding . It's a thing. A very valid thing.
And if it's your kind of thing then the new version of Poldark is just what you've been waiting for.
There are men in tight breeches giving manly stares and women, who act all damoselling (it's a word, at least in my world it is) and wear dresses where breathing is most likely a problem. There's also love lost and love found and treachery and hard times and of course the beautiful Cornish scenery which is swoon worthy all on its on.
And then there is Aidan Turner, he of Being Human and Hobbit fame, who is most definitely swoon worthy if tall, dark and brooding is your thing. Throw in a couple of shirtless scenes (and yes there are some) and I'm sold.
And if you find that waiting week by week is just a bit too long to go for your fix then you'll be very pleased to know that there is a whole series of books about the Poldark family and their friends starting with Ross Poldark by Winston Graham. And even better there is the original series, Poldark,which we have at the library on DVD.
Swoony feels all round.
