Rhage – The Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward – Rhage is a vampire, a warrior, and a dangerous beast, all rolled into one. He’s been cursed, bearing the mark of a dragon both inside and out, and the only way to keep it at bay is through sex and violence. When Rhage meets Mary, a cancer survivor, he realizes she is IT for him, and he’ll do anything to have her, even if it means defying the Brotherhood. They’re two different people from two very different worlds, and Rhage’s determination to earn Mary’s love makes for an extremely emotional romance.
Jamie Fraser – Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon – A true Scot, Jamie Fraser is a rare, red-headed hero. He has it all: good looks, intelligence, a sense of humor, and oodles and oodles of charm. He’s also ridiculously in love with his wife, Claire, and he’ll do anything to protect her. And after eight books (as well as his guest appearances in the Lord John Grey novels), it’s safe to say that Jamie has aged very well.
Mr. Darcy – Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen– Without a doubt, he’s the original book boyfriend. He’s brooding, mysterious, proper, and totally committed to his woman. What’s not to love? Many actors have played him over the years, but for me, it’ll always be Colin Firth.
Alexander Belov/Barrington – The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons – Alexander’s a soldier in Russia at the start of World War II. He falls in love at first sight with Tatiana, and his devotion to her simply melted my heart, even though there were times when I wanted to shake both of them for staying apart for so long. He’s smart, strong, and a survivor, and even though he has his fair share of flaws, Alexander is one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends.
Sebastian Wroth – No Rest For the Wicked by Kresley Cole – A vampire turned against his will, he’s tortured beyond belief and wishes for an end to his suffering. That is, until the day Kaderin the Cold-Hearted shows up in his life and literally makes his heart beat again. He’s a true hero should be: sexy, strong, honorable, courageous, loyal, tender, aggressive, and a gentleman. No wonder Kaderin loves him so much!
Adam Javorski – Grave Attraction by yours truly– Over the course of writing this book, I developed an unhealthy crush on Adam. He’s a reaper, a damned soul given one final chance to earn his salvation by harvesting the souls of the recently departed. He’s handsome, masculine, cunning, and loyal, and when he meets Marlena, he feels an immediate connection that he’s never experienced before. And with a serial killer stalking her, he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe.
What about you? Who are your favorite fictional boyfriends?
Growing up the youngest of three girls, Lori never had control of the remote. (Not that she's bitter about that. Really. Okay, maybe a little, but it's not like she's scarred for life or anything.) That meant a steady diet of science fiction and fantasy. Star Trek, Star Wars, Twilight Zone, Outer Limits - you name it, she watched it. It fed her imagination, and that came in handy when the hormones kicked in and she needed a creative excuse for being out past curfew.
After completing her first novel, she joined the Romance Writers of America and Central Florida Romance Writers. Now she exercises the analytical half of her brain at her day job, and the creative half writing sensual paranormal romance. Grim reapers are her specialty, but she loves to write about all creatures of the night.
