My blog post schedule got a little screwed up today (thanks for that, Blogger), so sorry for the late hour of this post. But just in case you didn’t get to see the awesomeness of Lisa, Tristan’s advocate for the NA Crush Tourney, and some hilarious and devoted fans of Kristie’s Crew, I wanted to share Lisa’s fantabulous post she prepared for the tourney. Thank you so much, Lisa, for all you’ve done! (And if you haven’t voted yet, it’s not too late! Voting is open until midnight tonight.)
Lisa’s advocate post:

Thanks to everyone who voted in the first round, I’m going to ask each of you again to cast a vote for the Tourney underdog! I can’t do this alone, we’re asking for your help in votes!! Let’s help push Tristan on into round THREE!!!
Here’s my advocate post from the first round, in case you haven’t seen it. Take a look and then click the link at the end of the page to VOTE FOR TRISTAN TODAY!!!
A bit about me – I read as much as I can, I swoon over book boys often and I try my best to let everyone know when I’ve found a book, character and author they shouldn’t miss! Besides reading (Strange to say that, right?) itís all about family, friends, and probably too much TV and movies, but enough about me, how about we get down to why Iím here today?
I was beyond excited to have been chosen as advocate for one of my FAVORITE lead male characters Tristan Knight from the Soul Saver Series by author Kristie Cook!! For those who know who he is, scroll on down to the bottom of this post and hit the VOTE FOR TRISTAN button. And those of you who havenít found this amazing character yet, read on, you have NO idea what you’ve been missing.
How about some info to give you a good picture of the man himself? “6’3″, panty-melting body harnessing every power his creators could give him, he’s the most dangerous creature on earth. And he’ll literally give you his heart. What more could you ask for in a book boyfriend?” I know right?
Some physical features to help round out this beautiful warrior ñ
Sandy brown hair, hazel eyes with a wide band of emerald and gold sparkles.
“It wasn’t right for a guy to be so incredibly attractive. Besides how tall he stoodótowering at least a foot over my five-twoóI noticed his hazel eyes first. They pulled me into their staggering beauty, with a wide ring of emerald green on the outside of the irises and brown around the pupils with gold specks that seemed to . . . sparkle. They were fringed with such long, dark lashes that it was unfair they were on a guy. His facial features were flawlessóa square jaw, full lips and a golden suntanóbetter than any movie star or model. Sandy brown hair, longer on top and streaked by the sun, topped off his perfection. And then he smiled magnificently and the gold flecks in his eyes sparkled brighter, like when the sun hits gold flakes in a mining pan.” – (Promise)
He’s not all brawn, but he has brains, too. He speaks 7 languages, is a math guru and an amazing artist – he brings those together with his interest in architecture. He even designed his own home.
ìIím Tristan . . . in case you didn’t catch it.î – (Promise)
I have proof that he’s beautiful on the inside too.
Heís fiercely protective of those he cares about and loves ñ
ìIíll fight for you until the end of my days.î – (Promise)
Heís sexy and flirtatious ñ
ìI showed you mine. Will you show me yours?î – (Promise)
Heís utterly romantic ñ
“Without your love, without you in my life, I am nothing but darkness.î ñ (Promise)
He knows how to love as fierce as he fights ñ
“I will take care of you, honor and protect you, for as long as I live, into eternity. I lay down my life for you, Alexis, my friend and my love. Today I give to you, me.î ñ (Promise)
Prepare to swoon ladies –
ìI couldn’t wait for people to see you in that dress. Because you are with me. Forever.î He leaned closer, his lips tickling my ear. ìAt least let me enjoy it now, because I will have you out of that dress soon enough.î – (Promise)
The thing about this ultimate alpha male is that with all the amazing things about him, he also a motorcycle riding bad boy that lurks just underneath the surface. Tender when he needs to be to all who are in need and watch out for his temper to all who hurt anyone in need or who can’t defend themselves.
What more could any person want when it comes to a swoon-able book boy? Well, thereís more so keep reading.
Tristan was created to be the perfect warrior. Heís survived more than most could, heís changed and he has literally cut out a part of his heart to give to the one that he loves.
Itís his loyalty, commitment, love, strength, inside and out that gives the x factor of book crush characters.
Now, donít just take my word for it, check out the video below for some of his long time fans –
See! I told you guys!
But wait… there’s still MORE about Tristan that I have to tell you about AND SHOW YOU!!!
Tristan can be a bit on the dark and mysterious side. Watching the Trailer for Promise, the first book in the Soul Saver Series (Pssst! The eBook is free on ALL platforms right now!) you’ll be able to find out more about him and the beginning of his journey. Take a look, I mean wow… SEXY!!!
These are just some of the things I love about Tristan. And I hope after reading this post, watching the videos that you’ll vote for him so he makes it onto the second round!!!
And WHEN he makes it into ROUND THREE… we’ll ALL get some more to swoon about! Check out what we’ll win, when HE WINS! Right from Kristie herself –
“For each round he wins, Kristie has some special scenes written from Tristan’s POV, and if he wins the whole thing ñ she’ll let Tristan tell the story of their wedding night.”
And here’s some parting words from the man himself….
ìWell . . . I didn’t get to say a proper good-bye and I couldn’t sleep without this.î He bent over and brushed his lips across mine. Then he smiled and winked. I stared at him, dazed. ìOkay, better. I can sleep now. Good night.î (Promise)
