Introduction to Vance Mangum 101

Vance Mangum. Just rolls off the tongue doesn't it? Give me a moment to gather myself because at the mere thought of his name, my heart starts racing and my knees weaken. Sigh. Ok where was I - oh yes, Vance Mangum. The book world has a new bad boy and what a bad boy he is. The first image you get of Vance is him wearing a leather jacket outside of school, leaning up against his motorcycle. Can you see him? Ok now add amazing blue eyes, a rock hard body and a smile that will drive you crazy. He has a wicked sense of humor and like all bad boys, has a tortured and mysterious past. Oh and did I mention he has magical powers? Yep, I can hear your heart beating faster from here. Delicious huh? Right from that first moment of meeting him, Vance grabs hold of your heart and embeds himself deeply. He's the boyfriend you always wish you had in high school, the boy who when he walks into a room everything reduces down to a whisper and you find yourself drawn to him. He finds your eyes and with that smirk that melts your insides, he walks to you, letting everyone know that you're the one he wants and that to him, no one else matters. Everyone else may think they "know" him but you do - he's devoted, loyal and completely into you. It also doesn't hurt that he kisses like the devil and that he has the ability to scramble your brain with that incredible sexy raised eyebrow. He's the reason why you get up in the morning, why you find yourself with a goofy grin on your face and why you find yourself doodling your name and his wrapped in a heart whenever there is a pen nearby. He is irresistable and 100% unforgetable

Who The Heck Is This Matt Lanter Guy?

I know, I know. You're thinking right now "Why are you showing me a picture of Vance when this is about some Matt Lanter dude?" Patience my dear friend, patience. Confusing as it may seem, this is in fact THE Matt Lanter and THE inspiration behind Vance. Matt is the reason why the author wrote such a delicious bad boy and if you want to see all those hot Vance expressions and swagger, watch Matt. Want to know what Vance would sound like when he whispers to Portia..

(You need to click on the title to read it)

"Don't you get it?" he asked me softly, his blue eyes streaked with shots of red in them staring deep into my soul."I want all of you. I crave all of you. My body is demanding to have all of you, and my emotions are always right behind them. I'm always teetering on the brink of disaster."

...listen to Matt. I'm serious, YouTube him, close your eyes and really imagine him in that sexy leather jacket, casually leaning against his motorcycle. Or if you're like me, imagine him with those demon red eyes of his, that raised eyebrow and cocky smile as he's leaning in to kiss you.. I mean Portia.  I'm telling you, a girl could get lost in that voice of his and it is of little wonder that Lacey chose him above ALL others to be the muse of our beloved Vance. I have to admit that whenever I read Vance, it's Matt's face I see and that now I have a hard time trying to separate them. Each time I see Matt on TV or his picture on the Internet, my very first thought is "Hey it's Vance!!" and I burst into a flurry of contented sighes. However,now that I'm more familiar with Matt, I fully agree that, whether as Vance or himself , the man is HOT and totally worthy of all the fantasies and kissing dreams fans worldwide have of him (and let me just tell you, what Matt can do with his mouth... ROFL. At least in my dreams that man can KISS and he is AMAZING!!) So my challenge to you is this - next time you're watching TV or at the video store or better yet the minute you're done reading, do whatever you can to watch Matt Lanter in action. He is a great actor and all round nice guy who, I believe, is on the fast road to MEGA stardom. The only thing I'm left wondering is how long will it be before we can see Matt with those HOT demon red eyes, walking around as one of the most powerful warlocks in the world ? I'm crossing EVERYTHING that it won't be in the very distant future because as much I think he rocked it better than Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen, what wouldn't be more perfect than seeing him as Vance Mangum, the bad boy destined to take over the world :D

For Your Viewing Pleasure

Ok, now if I showed you EVERY hot photo of Matt not only would I melt your computer (because they are scorching) but I'd be here forever linking them. So let me show you one of my FAVE collages I found and then point you in the direction of Google images. Of course, by coming to The Shrine you'll get MORE than your fill of sexy Matt, whether when I talk about Vance (gush) or I share something about Matt (sigh) anyway....

This is why you'd thank me for burning and melting your computer. You'd have to call 911 and look who'd show up!! (I TRIED to but my hubby took away the matches. He just couldn't see the bigger picture )

Maybe people will end up bombarding Matt until he gets sick of it and agrees to play Vance in a movie! I'm also not against bribary in the form of baked goods lol.

This a hilarious, fun and fantastic tribute to Matt. He is so hott. He is definetly the perfect man to play Vance Magnum, no-one else would do. Baked goods may be a plan, I can bake. Maybe if we send some cookies every week we can get him addicted and he'll have to play Vance in the movie. Great post. xx
