Hi, everyone! Happy Spring!

It is such a pleasure to be here with you today—and I sure am excited to talk about one of my very favorite topics…Book Boyfriends. Come on, confess, we all have them—heroes that we just love. The guys that slip into our dreams. The guys that we sure wish could appear in reality.
If only!

I’ve got a top ten Book Boyfriend list that I wanted to share. Maybe some of these guys are your book boyfriends, too!

10. Lachlain MacRieve from Kresley Cole’s A HUNGER LIKE NO OTHER. I just love a guy with a bit of the beast inside.

9. Baron Duncan of Wexton from Julie Garwood’s HONOR’S SPLENDOR. I know it’s an oldie—a classic!—but I adore this hero. I’d warm his feet. ;)
(Tell me someone else remembers that scene!)

8. Dane Hollister from Linda Howard’s DREAM MAN. Sexy detective.Just…sexy.

7. Eidolon from Larissa Ione’s PLEASURE UNBOUND. He had me at doctor.

6. Merrick de Beaucourt from Jill Barnett’s WONDERFUL. I so enjoy it when a hero proves his worth—and his love.

5. Nick Chastain from Jayne Castle’s ZINNIA. Two words: Psychic Vampire.

4. Roarke from, well, *every* JD Robb book. I love me some Roarke.

3. Layel from Gena Showalter’s THE VAMPIRE’S BRIDE. Did I mention that I have a thing for vampires? No, then maybe you should see #2 below…

2. Dracula. Yes, I just went there.

1. Wesley from…THE PRINCESS BRIDE. He could say “As you wish” to me all day long!


Now that I’ve shared my list with you—tell me, who are your fave book boyfriends? Are any on my list?

Thanks so much for checking out my post!


What happens when the most beautiful girl in the world marries the handsomest prince of all time and he turns out to be...well...a lot less than the man of her dreams?

As a boy, William Goldman claims, he loved to hear his father read the S. Morgenstern classic, The Princess Bride. But as a grown-up he discovered that the boring parts were left out of good old Dad's recitation, and only the "good parts" reached his ears.

Now Goldman does Dad one better. He's reconstructed the "Good Parts Version" to delight wise kids and wide-eyed grownups everywhere.

What's it about? Fencing. Fighting. True Love. Strong Hate. Harsh Revenge. A Few Giants. Lots of Bad Men. Lots of Good Men. Five or Six Beautiful Women. Beasties Monstrous and Gentle. Some Swell Escapes and Captures. Death, Lies, Truth, Miracles, and a Little Sex.

In short, it's about everything.

As a fallen Angel of Death, Azrael is cursed to walk the earth alone in search of redemption. One night, as he wanders the streets of New Orleans, he discovers a woman surrounded by panther shifters. No longer able to contain the anger simmering within, Az summons his dark powers and attacks, determined to protect this innocent human from certain death.

Only Jade Pierce is no delicate flower. She’s spent years learning to survive and fight the evil forces sent by her ex-lover who refuses to let her go. But after seeing Az in action, she figures she could use a little supernatural help. And so she plans a course of seduction guaranteed to arouse his interest and his angelic passions…

  43. Some of your book boyfriends are on my to read list. I've seen The Princess Bride, but never read the book.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love to see this kind of list - I always get to add a few to my TBR list.

    ReplyDelete

  49. Kresley Cole and Gena Showalter both do a fantastic job making you want to be with their heros!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Roarke! He's my rock. Get it get it? Lol. Love him to bits! Wonderful character don't you think? I also love all the yummy men in Judith McNaught's books!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wesley! Such a great choice, I haven't read the book but I love the movie!
    I love Sebastien from Devil In Winter by Lisa Kleypas.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I agree with you about Ione's Eidolon and Princess Bride's Wesley...YUMMMMY. Kresley & Gena's got quite a few too but it was been a while since I have reviewed them. I've always kinda had a thing for the Robin Hood types ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Ohhh Cynthia Eden's books have been on my TBR list for a while. Now I must schedule a 'reading vacation' from work to spend time with so many new book boyfriends!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I LOVED Roark/Shanna!!!!
    Yes - I have heard WONDERFUL things about you and your work!!!
    NIce to "meet" you!

    ReplyDelete
  55. You named several I am familiar with...I mean who that has read Roark doesn't love him?

    I also love Larissa Ione's books but always prefered Shade. Gena Showalter is another great but I prefer her LOTU and spinoff Angels of the Dark series. Kresly Cole is also Awesome! If you add Add JR Wards BDB, Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunters and Christine Feehan's Dark Series those are the first books I read when I got into reading. All Paranormal. Then I think I found Cynthia's Midnight trilogy (which I loved)!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I agree with your choice of Roarke. When Pierce Brosnan was younger, don't you think he would have made a good Roarke in a movie?

    ReplyDelete
  57. We have Duncan, Roarke and Wesley in common, but my TBR keeps growing.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love Charles from the Alpha and Omega series by Patricia Briggs and definitely Wesley from The Princess Bride.

  59. My all time favorite is Rhett Butler, but I must admit I'm fickle. I fall in love with each hero as I read their book.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love the brother's from Larissa Ione's Demonica series! Con and Wraith kind of top the list for me :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. I don't think I have a favorite book boyfriend because I tend to love the male character in most of the books I read. I love when I find a book where I can become invested in the characters and find things about them that I love.

    I absolutely loved The Princess Bride, both the movie and the book, and I'd love to have a copy of my own. Angel in Chains sounds great as well, so my fingers are crossed for luck.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

    Best Wishes,
    Lindsey V.
