Today it is my pleasure to host Forever’s first ever Historical Hookup!
Dashing dukes, ravishing rakes, enticing earls—Forever is bringing them all to you in our first ever Historical Hookup!
We asked Elizabeth Hoyt, Eileen Dreyer, Jennifer Delamere, Anne Barton, and Lily Dalton to tell us what their Hero’s would do if they were transported to 2013, here are their answers:
“If your hero were transported to 2013, what job would he have? What would he drive? Where would he live?”
Elizabeth Hoyt, DUKE OF MIDNIGHT:
Maximus is a member of parliament so I suppose he should be a politician…but I think he’d be a high-powered CEO with a driver for the weekdays and a BMW for the weekends. He’d live in a really expensive penthouse in New York with an old family house in Nantucket that he never gets away to.
Eileen Dreyer, ONCE A RAKE:
Just like Ian, he would be a soldier. More likely, he would be some kind of special ops. And no question. Since he can, he would live in the Highlands.
Jennifer Delamere, A LADY MOST LOVELY:
Tom Poole worked his way to wealth by hard physical labor, and now he owns his own business. He’s got a rough-and-tumble past, and he’s been both a working man and an executive. In today’s world, he’d probably be a successful building contractor out west and drive a very nice pickup truck or SUV. He’d have a home in the country and in his free time his ride of choice would be his horse.
Anne Barton, ONCE SHE WAS TEMPTED:
In 2013, Ben would make a great Navy Seal turned CEO. He’d probably drive a Jaguar F-type and commute to New York City from a huge, luxurious cabin in nestled in the woods.
Lily Dalton, NEVER DESIRE A DUKE:
If Claxton was transported to 2013, I think he’d still be involved with international diplomacy somehow. He isn’t a politician, but more of an ambassador or behind the scenes kind of guy. He wouldn’t want to run for office, but he’d be exactly the type of person we’d want to do so. He’d drive a new, black Chevrolet Suburban and live on a somewhat secluded property outside the city, surrounded by rolling hills and trees.
