If you’ve joined me from the lovely Kim Handysides, then welcome!
So this week Sarah Hegger asked us to tell her our three favourite book boyfriends from any books we’ve read and why.
At first I thought, ‘pfft! Easy peasy!’, and then when I thought about it I found it quite difficult to choose just 3! 😀
Anyway, here are the ones that stood out the most to me:
1. Diesel from Visions of Sugar Plums by Janet Evanovich
Ah, Diesel… What’s not to love about him? 😀
The man makes me swoon every time I read this book and although he doesn’t get together with Stephanie Plum, there is enough tension there to make the pages burn!
He is brash but kind, charming but understanding; definitely the type of guy I want in my life. Add to that the air of mystery about him and I’m sold!
2. Jonathan Harker from Bram Stoker’s, Dracula.
Ok, I watched the famous movie with Gary Oldman before I ever read this book and just assumed (bad, I know!) that the movie was a faithful retelling of the book. How wrong I was!
In the movie Jonathan Harker is a bit of a nothing, he doesn’t really do anything and certainly doesn’t inspire much romantic feeling.
Yet, in the book, he’s a COMPLETELY different character. Definitely one to swoon over. His dedication to Mina and his willingness to do whatever it takes to protect her makes my heart flutter, whilst at the same time he is a gentleman of his time with all the manners!
3. Otto from my book, Prophecy of Stones.
This is cheating a bit, seeing as it’s my own book 😀 But still, Otto is definitely a character that stands out to me as a man I would be happy to have around.
He’s calm, understanding, but strong; a man capable of leading his own life without relying on others. Although a secondary character, he stands out in his own right, and the intensity and depth that he shares with his bond mate is exactly what I’d want in my life.
And there we have it 😀 Those are the guys I’d pick straight away, if you know, they were real…
Anyways! Go find out who Veronica Forand has chosen for her three.
