For Nalini Singh's Contest she wanted to hear about our favorite heroes from romance novels, TV or movies and why.
I'm trying to think of romance books I constantly reread.
A new author to me last year.. Robyn Carr has a wonderful series the Virgin River series. I fell in love with the character from the third book in the series (Whispering Rock) Mike Valenzuela. I loved how Mike helped the heroine, Brie, return to life after she was raped. While tough subject... Brie was a survivor and had to learn to trust again and Mike was so loving in helping her slowly regain her confidence.
Roarke from JD Robb's In Death series is wonderful. I love how he takes care of Eve. It doesn't hurt that he is brilliant with computer and has millions. His background makes him a very angsty hero.
Ken "Wildcard" Carmody from Suzanne Brockmann's Out of Control is one of my favorites. I find myself rereading his story when I want a comfort read. Kenny is not tall and does not consider himself good looking. He is resourceful and has a heart of gold.
Conlan from Alyssa Day's Atlantis Rising is a great hero. He has endured major pain and his life full of angst. He leads his Warriors with confidence. I love when he speaks formally to Riley. He doesn't know what to do with a strong female who speaks her mind.
I could go on and on but these four came to mind first.
