This weeks theme is a Valentine’s freebie so I chose Top 10 Fictional Crushes.
- Rhett Butler. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. Don’t we always chase after the ones who don’t give a damn?
- Kade Renault. The Devils Love by Lane Harris. This was the first historical romance I read, in middle school. I have never forgotten that Kade smells of fine tobacco and clean cloth and has strong thighs. Most pre-teen boys don’t. I was in love.
- Harry Bosch. Black Echo by Michael Connelly. Bosch is a brooding American detective named after an artist with good taste in music who doesn’t follow the rules.
- Harry Hole. The Bat by Joe Nesbo. Hole is a brooding Swedish detective who drinks too much and doesn’t follow the rules.
- Inspector Banks. Gallow’s View by Peter Robinson. Banks is a brooding British detective with good taste in music and booze who doesn’t follow the rules.
- Simon Serrailler. The Various Haunts of Men by Susan Hill. Serrailler is another brooding Brit who is an artist who happens to be a police inspector.
- James Fraser. Outlander by Diana Galbadon. We have to have a brooding Scots Warrior who wears a kilt and wears it well not to mention what is and isn’t under it..
- Will Traynor. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. Wheelchair bound after an accident, former golden boy mad-at-the -world finds peace. Sarcastic wit with tough exterior shell and soft, romantic center.
- Oliver Barrett IV. Love Story by Erich Segal. The WASP college boy who sacrifices all is a given.
- Christian Grey. Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James. Come on. Who doesn’t want to be whisked away and spanked a little. Just don’t forget your safe word. Banana.
