7 Book Boyfriends to Get Lucky with Under the Covers
Dusty Hicks, A MATCH MADE IN TEXAS
Dusty Hicks would make the best boyfriend because he’s . . . Confident enough to wear pink boxers. (A laundry mishap.) Loving enough to build a princess castle for his daughter. Dedicated and courageous enough to protect his town from an unscrupulous conman. Man enough to handle a daredevil southern girl—in bed and out. And what woman wouldn’t feel lucky to date a sexy Texas lawman who carries his own handcuffs? —Katie Lane
A Match Made in Texas is the sixth book in Katie Lane’s bestselling, witty and sexy Deep in the Heart of Texas series.
Living with four over-protective brothers is enough to make a good girl go bad. But the day Brianne Cates hits the road for a taste of freedom, she gets more trouble than she bargained for when she’s arrested by a sexy sheriff in mirrored shades. Now doing a stint of community service, she’s not going to let a cowboy cop like Dusty Hicks mess with her newfound independence-even if he awakens every wicked fantasy she’s ever had.
In Bramble, Texas, Dusty is the law. That means no leniency for the gorgeous rebel whose highway antics almost got them both killed. The divorced lawman doesn’t need another rich, pampered princess, even if Brianne has the lushest body and sweetest smile in the whole darn state. But even as Brianne proves that she lives to walk on the wild side, Dusty begins to wonder if maybe he has what it takes to tame her….

Ben Teague, IT’S ALWAYS BEEN YOU
So let’s talk about Ben for a sec. Captain Ben Teague is a teeny bit of a smart ass. Okay a lot. In the opening scene of IT’S ALWAYS BEEN YOU, he’s busy irritating the sarn’t major by wearing a New Kids On the Block Trucker hat. But this guy isn’t all wise cracks and jokes. Ben’s got a serious side that he’s been avoiding for a while. He’s that dark and sexy kind of wounded that makes you really have to dig deep to get to know him. Even when he’s licking your back, he’s still keeping his distance through jokes and quick remarks. He’s the kind of guy you’ve really got to work to see his serious side but when he finally opens up and grants you his trust, you’ve got a soul mate for life. —Jessica Scott
She plays by the rules . . .
Captain Ben Teague is many things: a tough soldier, a loyal friend, and a bona fide smart-ass. He doesn’t have much tolerance for BS, which is why he’s mad as hell when a trusted colleague and mentor is brought up on charges that can’t possibly be true. He’s even more frustrated with by-the-book lawyer Major Olivia Hale. But there’s something simmering beneath her icy reserve–and Ben just can’t resist turning up the heat . . .
. . . and he’s determined to break them
The only thing riskier than mixing business with pleasure is enjoying it . . . and Olivia can’t resist locking horns–and lips–with Ben. He’s got more compassion in his little finger than any commander she’s ever met, a fact that makes him a better leader than he realizes. But when the case that brought them together awakens demons from Olivia’s past, she will have to choose between following orders–or her heart . . .
Colin Brockhurst, WHAT A RECKLESS ROGUE NEEDS
What makes Colin the perfect book boyfriend? Did I mention he’s a dead ringer for Henry Cavill? Go ahead and swoon now. Also, the man can wield an ax and show off his bulging biceps. Let us not forget the man can kiss. Just ask Angeline who said, “You need no practice. You are clearly an expert.” I’m his creator and most definitely agree. In one eventful scene, Colin warns Angeline that he’s going to do something that may shock her. Afterward, she says, “No wonder virgins are kept in the dark. They would all be lifting their skirts for any man willing to …do that.” —Vicky Dreiling

Aiden Downey, HARD TO HANDLE
In my humble opinion (and my heroine, Sadie’s not-so-humble opinion), Aiden Downey from Hard to Handle is the perfect book boyfriend. He’s attentive, patient, and likes to whisper not-so-sweet nothings into Sadie’s ear during…um…while they’re hanging out. He’s adventurous, too, choosing places other than bed to showcase his golden muscles, and cheeky dimples, and talented mouth. Best of all? If you’re a little hard to handle, getting lucky with Aiden requires zero change on your part. He happens to like women who are stubborn, sassy, and have a feral spark. Trust me, if he can handle Sadie, he can handle any of us. 🙂 —Jessica Lemmon
