The tree is out and dressed better than a model on fashion week, the fruit cake is getting a regular dose of brandy ready to be dished out to unsuspecting relatives and your credit card is currently maxed out after having gone on a little gift shopping. That’s right it’s that magical time of year again….Christmas. So here at UTC we thought we would do our own version of the ever popular Christmas carol The Twelve Days of Christmas and have a look back at the best that romance has offered us through out 2014.
To start us off, rather than annoying you and your neighbours with 12 drummers drumming , we are instead going to share with you our 12 favourite heroes of 2014!
Misha from Cecy Robson’s A Cursed Bloodline
One of my top reads for this year is Cecy Robson’s A Cursed Bloodline. My book boyfriend from this book is the secondary hero, Misha. Anyone who knows me knows I love a good dracula character. Cecy’s take in this vamp is different from what we are used to but what draws me to him is his obvious need to love and be loved. Not to mention his powers, riches and insatiable appetite for bed partners. Misha is definite a book boyfriend material.
Sevastyan from Kresley Cole’s The Professional
Kresely Cole shocked the world with the release of this series. Though we all know Cole can create sexy heroes, Sevastian is unlike any other. He is the epitome of ruthless, loyal, and hot as hell. Adventurous and insatiable are also good description. Because of him, I can never look at janitor’s closet the same way again. Guys like Sevastian are unforgettable and he will always have a place in my heart as my book boyfriend.
Gavin from Soul Enslaved by Keri Lake
One of my recent reads that ended up on my top pick is Soul Enslaved by Keri Lake. Gavin just made it to my book boyfriend list. Gavin is just as ruthless, powerful, rich and romantic but this guy being the King of “Cunnaligus”, well, he’s automatically added to the lust list. I mean book-boyfriend list.
Kingsley Edge from THE KING by Tiffany Reisz
Landon Lucas Maxfield from BREAKABLE by Tammara Webber
Miro Jones from ALL KINDS OF TIED DOWN by Mary Calmes
Thronos, prince of Skye Hall from DARK SKYE by Kresley Cole
First of there’s the fact that he has it ALL. Fangs, wings and horns. Be still my galloping heart. And he’s a virgin hero. I have a big soft spot for those. He’s been true to his mate, Lanthe since he met her when they were mere kids. Five hundred years later, there’s a lot of heat that needs to explode. And explode it does. When Thronos claims his mate you will be nothing but a puddle of goo on the floor. Did I mention the horns? I’m a sucker for horns!
Nicholas from Killer Queen by L.H. Cosway
This man is just my ultimate book boyfriend fantasy. No questions asked.
Jay Fields from SIX OF HEARTS by L.H. Cosway
Can you tell I have a fascination with Ms. Cosway’s characters? Jay is panty-melting awesome. He’s intense, focused and dedicated on making his woman feel like a queen.
Curran from Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrews
I know I know, I have shocked you all with this choice, it’s not like Curran appears in almost every list we here at UTC do… But yes Curran is one of my favourite heroes of the year, his innate Curraneness just draws me in, his sense of humour, his loyalty, his fierceness the fact that he is on sexy beast (lord)… I can’t get enough of him.
Ariq from The Kraken King by Meljean Brook
The Kraken King is one of my favourite books of the year, and not least because of the hero, Ariq aka The Kraken King. His devotion to his people, intelligence and bravery make him the kind of man you would want on your side of the battle line. His glorious six pack and skilled hands make him the kind of man you want in your bed. All of which add up to make one of my favourite heroes and one who will stick me with me well after 2014 has ended.
Ransom, Duke of Rothbury from Romancing the Duk
So now it’s your turn!
