Pink Heart Society columnist Barb Han is talking about all those delicious book boyfriends that you just can't get enough of!
Hi. My name is Barb. And I have multiple book boyfriends (isn’t acknowledging that you have a problem the first step toward recovery?).
Not only do I have them, but I’ve categorized them by how old I would be when we would date.
My inner twelve-year-old has a crush on Fitz from Keeper of the Lost Cities.
He’s good-looking (of course!), talented (he’s an elf with special abilities that far exceed others’ talents), and can be a little intense at times (what can I say, you already know that I love a tortured hero).
His best friend, Keefe, isn’t so bad, either.
He’s totally cute (a requirement!), almost always in trouble (who doesn’t like a little mischief?), and most of all, fun to be around (I like to have a good time!).
Fast forward a few years, let’s say late-twenties or early thirties, and my book boyfriend is…Kyle McKenzie from The Profiler series. He works for the FBI as a Hostage Rescue Team agent. He’s strong, virile and badass. Plus, he’s smokin’ hot with the kind of body that makes me long to be rescued. As if I needed more, he’s dedicated to saving others even when it puts his life in danger. *passes out*
What about you? Do you have a book boyfriend? Or several? What qualities in a fantasy boyfriend(s) make you go weak in the knees?
Barb's latest book, Texas Takedown, is out now:
For security expert Dylan Jacobs, his little daughter is a light against the shadows of his past. But when the sexy ex-soldier locates missing Samantha Turner, the shadows return. Samantha is convinced their childhood nemesis—the Mason Ridge Abductor—is back. And that he’s hunting her.
Amid a hail of gunfire, Dylan commits to keeping Samantha safe—then nearly crumbles when his own child disappears. So when the villain poses a vicious ultimatum—turn over the woman he loves or never see his beloved toddler again—Dylan knows what he has to do. Put plan B into action.
