UPDATE 7/13/12
IT'S TIME EVERYONE!! As you know I am your official Team Kaidan advocate for the second annual YA Sisterhood Crush Tournament!!! I'm so excited that it's voting time!! Here is his OFFICIAL  defense post! And remember all the great updates on the official page!! PLEASE GO VOTE FOR KAIDAN!!!


Captain Tara here, your acting advocate for Kaidan Rowe, along with Shreya and Gianna, my second and third in command in the Kaidan Army, Infantry Division, part of the Tater’s Tall Tails troop. We are here today under orders from Pharzuph, the Duke of Lust, to increase awareness about his son Kaidan Rowe.  He wants us to help Kaidan in this YA Crush Tournament that is going on under the command of the YA Sisterhood Troop. His orders are to inform everyone about the Seven Deadly Reasons to Love Kaidan Rowe and encourage the masses to VOTE for him to be the ultimate crush in the tournament. We hope to give you all the information you need to vote for Kaidan! We wouldn’t want him to get in trouble with his daddy or the other Dukes for not properly influencing the masses!

Now Kaidan is the unbelievably sexy main man from Wendy Higgins’s book Sweet Evil. Kaidan is a unique individual, although he is the son of the Duke of Lust, he in fact exhibits traits from all seven of the deadly sins. Kaidan Rowe is your typical gift from the gods: brown hair cut short on the sides and back, but longer on top, angling across the forehead. His eyes were a gorgeous color of tropical honeymoon waters, ringed in dark sapphire and enclosed by thick lashes. And he is smokin’ hot. As in H-O-T-T hot. Kaidan is extra-T worthy.

Now here are Seven Deadly Reasons To Love Kaidan Rowe:

1: Envy: Kaidan has been known to make the male population quite envious and jealous. Aside from his good looks, he has incredible talent.  According to our field agent, Private Jay, Kaidan Rowe has been described as: “…a killer musician, he gets tons of chicks, his dad’s loaded, and if that wasn’t enough, he’s got a friggin’ English accent!” p. 15

2. Gluttony: Kaidan has shown to make this rather unattractive sin, quite attractive. Know to be a disgusting sin; Kaidan has turned gluttony into quite a spectacle.  I believe he uses his lustful nature to influence others on this.
“He picked up a green pear from his plate and bit into lit, licking juice that dripped down his thumb.” p. 180

3. Wrath: Although Kaidan is the epitome of calm, silent and cool, there are times where the Duke of Wrath, Alocer, causes Kaidan to lash out. According to our information, one of Kaidan’s more recent admire, recalled a moment on their journey displaying Kaidan’s loss of control:
“With the swipe of an angry arm, Kaidan had sent a glass lamp flying off the dresser, where it bashed against the wall. He pointed at me, eyes blazing.” p.177

4. Pride: Being incredibly good looking and charming has its determents. Kaidan is often under influence of Rahab, the Duke of Pride. Kaidan has been known to use his bedroom eyes on unsuspecting victims and does not hid the fact that he sleeps in the buff. His pridefullness has gotten him the description of hotheaded, egocentric male slut by some local populations. But his pride has also interfered with his work: “Hum, moved too quickly. Rookie mistake.” But he is always quick to recover“But I can see you still want me.” p. 137

5. Sloth: Kaidan and his experience have been known to cause women to become quite lazy and unable to move under his expert touch. Many women describe a certain, cessation after their romp with Kaidan. Our incredible informant was kind enough to share a moment of her experience of the lazy, satisfying experience with Kaidan: With an expert movement, his stealthy hands went up to the back of my shirt, past the uncomfortable bra clasp that dug into my skin, fingers tracing my shoulder blades. The tense muscles spasmed weakly, then turned to Jell-O under his touch. p. 135

6. Greed: Not one of Kaidan’s better qualities or favorite sins, he isn’t known to show others his needs and wants. But there is one female in particular that causes Kaidan to feel a bit…possessive and needy. When Kaidan wants a girl, he wants it all…but his way. Just ask Kope for those stories. We have never seen him be as possessive as he is with his Luv, Ann…
“Just me, luv,” he said, close to my ear. “Aren’t you the picture of domestication? Do you cook as well?” p. 233
His voice lowered to sexy, dangerous depths. “I want to introduce myself to every freckle on your body.” p. 347

7. Lust: Kaidan, being the son of the Duke of Lust, has no problem with this sin.  We have had multiple reports from the female officers about how good and lustful Kaidan can be.  But one striking encounter happened with Kaidan’s off the books assignment, in a hotel room outside of LA one afternoon.
We met halfway. His lips were as hot as his eyes, sending a shock way through me. His tender mouth opened mine and I could sense the red of passion, like silk, circling us, pulling us closer. I was aware of a halfhearted battle within me, but I clambered nearer, pushing the notebook and papers to the floor.
His lips broke away from mine and moved greedily down my neck. A moan escaped me at the feel of his hot breath on my skin, and it was all the encouragement he needed. p. 236

Now we have been instructed under the General of the Kaidan Army to talk about his secret weapon: his tender moments, where his lust moves to love. Kaidan doesn’t like the world to know what is under his badge.  But under all of his bedroom eyes, sexy tussled hair and tanned skin, there is a man with true heart. He has the ability not only to make you swoon over his good looks and talented hands, but his tender moments will touch your heart and you will forever be his.  
 “Which was your favorite place?” I asked.
“I’ve never been terribly attached to anyplace. I guess is would have to be … here.”
I stopped mid-chew and examined his face. he wouldn’t look at me. He was clenching his jaw, tense. Was he serious or was he teasing me? I swallowed my bite.
“The Texas panhandle?” I asked.
“No.” he seemed to choose each word with deliberate care. “I mean here in this car. With you.”~ 153

Kaidan also knows how to truly love a woman. He might see it as his job or just par for the course but any woman loves a man that knows what he is doing. 
I can feel out someone within five minutes of conversation to know what I would have to say and do to lure her into bed.
I know secrets of the human body most people don’t even know about themselves. p. 158

And out last shining quality about Kaidan and a reason for you to vote for him is 
Kaidan finds something attractive about everybody. EVERYBODY! That means he thinks there's something very sexy about each and every person, and he never thinks of anyone as "ugly."  There are days where he is just staring at people, noticing all the little ways they are attractive.
…I felt his hand around my wrist, spinning me in a half circle and pulling me to his chest. His face was so close. He reached down and cupped my face with one woolly hand, and wiped the top corner of my lip hard with his thumb. I flinched back.
“What are you doing?”
“I…” he appeared to have no idea himself. “I wanted to see your freckle.”
A vulnerable tenderness flashed across his face, more painful to see than the coldness.  …
“What do you want from me Kai,”
“For starts,” his voice lowered to sexy dangerous depths. “I want to introduce myself to every freckle on your body.”

Now that we have given you all the information you need, we hope that you in fact will help spread Kaidan’s influence further by voting for him!! Remember we are under direct orders from The General of the Kaidan Army, Wendy as well as Pharzuph to ensure that we influence everyone we can!
