When I was imagining Cam Dexter for The Waiting Game I imagined a guy who was the self-assured, intense, get-it-done type! A man who had progressed from raw talent and confidence in his job as Head of Security for Nocturne's world tour five years earlier, to now running his own security consultancy, in charge of people, in charge of resolving dangerous situations - in charge, period.
He was the kind of guy that breathed authority and handled stress with ease. The guy you knew absolutely would get you out of any given situation because he didn't just play at keeping you safe. He took it seriously. He took it really seriously. Because he'd witnessed damage done and taken the guilt of it all the way deep inside of him. He knew what could happen if he didn't keep you safe. That failure had cost him. Worse, it had cost the person he cared most about dearly - and then cost him that person.
Not that he'd let the experience beat him - that's not who he is! But if you dared to look close enough - if he let you get close enough to see into those sexy blue eyes - you would see the anguish of a guilt that cut deep, emotion at war with logic, a burning need to redeem himself of past mistakes, and absolute passion for justice. And if your name happened to be Brooke Bennet, all these looks would come with flashes of barely contained heat. Heat so hot you'd wonder how blue could ever be considered cold!
Whether his eyes were cool and assessing or hot and undressing...it was all about the eyes with Cameron Dexter!
Ever noticed how an alpha male has no trouble initiating and maintaining eye contact? How he never drops eye contact first! How his eyes can speak volumes! Delicious!
There was a real-life person who inspired me when I was writing Cameron. And his eyes just happen to be blue. And piercing. And because he's an actor they can also be cool and assessing or hot and undressing!
CLUE: He's gone from being a good neighbour to a castle via Spartacus.
