Top Ten Tuesday – My Bookish Boyfriends

Today the Broke and the Bookish are asking for our book crushes.
Even before the series premiered on Starz, Jamie from the Outlander series would have been #1 on this list.
If not for the movie, Aragorn from the Lord of the Rings trilogy wouldn’t have made the list.  But it counts because I did read the first book first, right?
Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy from Pride and Prejudice has also greatly benefitted by the men who have portrayed him onscreen.
Home (Myron Bolitar #11)
4. Myron Bolitar and/or Win Lockwood III  from Harlan Coben’s long running series.  Maybe we could alternate date nights?
Deadly Love (Francesca Cahi...
5. It’s an old series, but the Deadly series by Brenda Joyce gave me TWO brothers to crush on, with Calder winning my (and the heroine) in the end.
Almost Heaven (Sequels, #3)Paradise (Second Opportunit...A Kingdom of Dreams (Westmo...Whitney, My Love (Westmorel...
6. Pretty much any hero from the old Judith McNaught romances are worthy to be on this list.  One author whose books I’ve reread most over the years.
The Best Man (Blue Heron, #1)The Perfect Match (Blue Her...Waiting on You (Blue Heron,...
7. I also crush on all the guys in Kristan Higgins’ Blue Heron series.
One for the Money (Stephani...
8. Morelli or Ranger, Ranger or Morelli?  I’d probably take either one in the Stephanie Plum series.  If I wasn’t already happily married that is 😉
The Informationist (Vanessa...
9. Miles Bradford in the Vanessa Michael Munroe series is a stand up (and hot) guy.
Into the Wilderness (Wilder...
10. I loved Nathaniel Bonner or Between-Two-Lives by the Mohawk from Into the Wilderness.
So, who are your literary crushes?

  1. I’ve never read any of The Outlanders books but everyone who has seems to have a crush on Jamie.

    • With good reason 🙂 You should check out the mini series at least, just to be in the know.

  5. Great list! I couldn’t come up with 10 so I passed on this one this week. But a few of mine were Rochester from Jane Eyre, Wentworth from Persuasion, Rhett from Gone with the Wind and that’s about it for me.

  6. What a fun topic! I wasn’t up to participating this week, but maybe I will make a list for another week when I’m struggling with the given theme. I can only think of five so far though. I love your list though. Aragorn is a good one. I think I might have picked him based on the movies too. 🙂
