10. Bannerman Boru
The hero of Darby Kaye’s new Urban Fantasy series was an instant hit with me; from his Irish brogue, to his cavalier mannerisms, to his love for his son and hot warrior bod.
This dude’s a regular on my year-end book boyfriends list, and considering he’s a cat (ok lion) that’s saying something. Unfortunately Kate is NOT someone I’d want to mess with, so I crush on him from afar.
08. Reyes Farrow
Even though I read SEVENTH GRAVE AND NO BODY several months ago, this man still visits me regularly in dreamland. If you haven’t made his acquaintance yet, well… more for me!
He’s blonde, immortal, badass, and has an oh so sexy Brit accent, plus from what I’ve seen in the NIGHT HUNTRESS books he’s absolutely dynamite in bed.
06. Alec Royce
I just met this charming bloodsucker in September, but as you can tell, he made a HUGE impression on me. I’m cheating a bit because I’m only at book 4, not 6. Ssshh!
Tortured heroes are irresistible IMO, and no one does ’em quite like Felicity Heaton. Next year is going to be challenging to pick my fav ETERNAL MATES protagonist, but Vail was hands down the winner of 2014.
If good guys are more your style, then Bonilla’s handsome Jinn is as perfect as they come. I seriously can’t get enough of this sweetie which is why he made the cut two years in a row. Ty never disappoints!
03. Adam Hauptman
No RR book boyfriends list would be complete without at least one werewolf; this man’s as alpha as he is sexy. He’s one heck of a swoon-worthy character! ❤
02. Clay Danvers
I never thought I’d see the day when my FAVOURITE wolf would come up short of the #1 spot, but here we are. He’s first among the weres though, so that still counts for something!
01. Jamie Fraser
This Scot needs no introduction IMO; whether you’ve read/listened to the books, watched season 1 of the TV series, or both. His grade-A hunk status is undeniable.

At the beginning of the year, I never would’ve thought Vail would’ve been on anyone’s book boyfriend list. Boy, was I surprised. Clayton Danvers, I miss him so much. That might be my next listen. Lots of other great book boyfriends. Great list. Merry Christmas. Melanie recently posted…Best Werewolf Books of 2014
I was on the fence about Vail as well, but once I read his story I was a goner. I can’t believe that you’ve been neglecting Clay for MONTHS. Merry belated Xmas!
I have only read one of the Nighthuntress books but I do agree Bones is a great Book Boyfriend. I have watched Bitten on syfy and I love Clay, so I am sure I would like him in the books..a must read. I have also watched Outlander series and love Jamie (probably won’t ever read the books). 🙂 Stormi recently posted…Out With The Old/In With the New: April 2014
Clay is even hotter in the books! The actor didn’t do his Southern twang justice at all. The Outlander books are loooong, so I don’t blame ya.
Oh well, that just means that 2015 is going to be an awesome year for you!
Jamie is my #1 book boyfriend for 2014 as well. I mean…he’s just too fabulous for words!! He makes me wish I was Claire! *wink* Curran is also quite dreamy but Rogan from Burn for Me is just the perfect combination of crazy+dark+mysterious that has me wishing he wasn’t fictional! *snickers* Cristina recently posted…Pivot Point (Pivot Point #1) by Kasie West
Unfortunately I didn’t listen to Burn for Me until AFTER I posted this list, otherwise he’d most likely have replaced Curran for me too. I loved Jamie before, but seeing him on TV made me appreciate him so much more!
Merry belated Christmas! And, YES YOU DO! Clear your schedule cuz it’s gonna take a while.
I would have agreed with Adam Hauptman as a top boyfriend, until I read Night Broken and saw how whipped he is by his ex. It’s like he and his werewolves all took stupid pills or something! 😛 Mogsy recently posted…Audiobook Review: Endsinger by Jay Kristoff
I don’t know what’s up with Briggs and ex spouses; there’s a similar story line in Dead Heat. Urgh!
I love Bones too. ^_^ However, I only read book 1 and 2 of the series but, still, they were great and the characters too. HA, I love his accent too 😉 Although I read them in French so I’m looking forward to trying the 3rd one in English. Also, ah yes, I have met Curran when reading Kate Daniels #1 back in September. He was nice. There’s potential for him to be in my Top Ten list ;D Lola recently posted…Favorite Reads of 2014 ❤
Now I’m trying to sound out an English accent with a French twist. I’m sure it’s still sexy because it IS Bones after all. Keep reading, and Curran will wind up on your list in no time!
I have a weakness for tortured heroes too, as long as they aren’t jerks of course. I’d probably say Percy Jackson or Jem Carstairs. (Age appropriate versions of course) and I’m liking Fortitude Scott at the moment too. Molly Mortensen recently posted…Happy New Year! and 2014 in books
Haha! I always feel weird whenever I develop a crush on a YA character. Talk about robbing the cradle. 😉
