Thanks so much to Dani for having me here and Happy Blogoversary to Ramblings from this Chick! I’m always super happy to talk heroes and to share my favorites. Here are a few:
Zsadist, from J.R. Ward’s Lover Awakened
Zsadist is pretty much my favorite hero ever, because his redemption is so unlikely and so hard-fought, that it is among the most powerful character arcs I’ve ever read. Add that to his backstory, which is utterly heart-wrenching, his amazing sexual awakening, and his lethal nature, and dude, that is one swoonworthy hero! Don’t even get me talking about his protectiveness of Bella, or the moment he realizes his eyes have turned yellow again, or when he writes ‘I LOVE YOU’ on a sheet of paper to show Bella he’s learning to read and write. GAH!
Jamie Fraser, from Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander
Jamie Fraser is such a perfect hero that he could literally ruin you for any other hero. LOL A strong, brave warrior. Loyal and true. Sex on a freaking stick and sexually inexperienced—but oh so eager to learn. And when it matters most, he believes the most important story in the world—and fights for the woman he loves. And getting to see it all on the screen now is just the icing on the cake.
Reese Anders, from Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Fall With Me
I couldn’t put this book down, and it was largely because of Reese, a seriously hot cop in an amazing story that manages to be part friends to lovers and part enemies to lovers. Reese is so intense between the sheets that you just wanted to stay there with him all day long, but he’s so realistic that he’s someone you could know in real life—and you will wish you did!
