Book Boyfriends

I’ve read many, many books were I thought the hero was incredibly appealing, sexy as sin, and worth getting to know better. Heroes that kept me up late into the night. Heroes I routed for, laughed with, cried over, and cursed at. 

I actually wrote this list a couple of years ago. But you know what? It hasn't changed a lot despite the number of books I've read between then and now. These are the heroes that have stuck with me. Maybe because these are also some of my favorite series. And maybe if you haven't given them a try you might want to check them out.

Here’s my list of favorite heroes:

Zsadist: A vampire in J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series (Lover Awakened). Ruined, but not broken. To say he has issues is an understatement. He is one tortured soul. And as a reader, I find that so appealing.
Christian Hawkins: From chop shop bad boy to Special Defense Forces agent in Tara Janzen Steele Street series (Crazy Cool). Nicknamed Superman.   S U P E R M A N    Those eight letters say it all. And it's a reunion story - my favorite kind.

Sam Starrett: A tough talking Navy SEAL from Suzanne Brockmann’s Troubleshooter series (Gone Too Far). He’s got a potty-mouth, a swagger, and a drawl. He's an elite warrior and good at his job. Too bad his private life is a mess. 

Cameron Quinn: One of the Quinn brothers from Nora Robert’s Chesapeake Bay series (Sea Swept). There’s nothing sexier than a man whose life has been turned upside down, trying to do the right thing, and making a complete hash of it. Cameron Quinn pulled me back into the world of romance.

And, no, I don’t want to know what this list says about me. Other than the fact that I obviously love to read romance.

How about you? Who are some of your favorite fictional heroes?

My infatuations seem to be centered on whatever hero I'm writing at the moment, lol.

I know what you mean, JB. The hero I'm writing now...have mercy. Let's hope readers think the same. LOL

I feel like the total party pooper. I don't have book boyfriends. Or rather I'm a love 'em and leave 'em kind of reader. I love them while I'm reading the book, and then I forget them for the next hero.

Not a party pooper, just living in the present. The way it should be!

Okay, my heroes don't count. But I have other book boyfriends. :) Top three: Roarke from JD Robb's In Death series. Irish rogue, richest man in the universe and totally gobsmacked by a homicide detective. What's not to love?

Reyes from Darynda Jones' Charley Davidson series. Son of the Devil--literally--bad boy extraordinaire and he gave up all his badassness to be born human (sort of) so he could be with Charley.

And I have a new BBF--Curran from Ilona Andrews Kate Daniels series. I waffled over him for awhile but he finally won me over.

Those sounds like awesome choices, Silver. All from books or series I haven't read yet. Something to look forward to! Because you can never too many book boyfriends.
