Many couples have “The List:” you know, the list of celebrities your significant other has given you a free pass to have sexual relations with them if you somehow run into them? Because chances are you will never run into said celebrity, so it’s okay to dream.
Today, we’re riffing on the idea of “The List,” asking H&H bloggers to offer the three heroes they’d want to play hide the kielbasa with. We got some wicked answers, and I may be fighting with my fellow bloggers over a few of these men.
I had no idea our bloggers loved so many heroes, so this will be split into two parts. (Already caught up on Part 1? Click here to go to The List Part 2!)
Bronx (The Asylum Tales by Jocelynn Drake): I fell head over heels in love with Bronx, it was love at first sight. Bronx is a troll and no he’s not built that way, he’s a big old enforcer style troll who works as a tattoo artist. Swoon, free tats! Sadly, Bronx doesn’t date humans so I’m screwed, and not the good kinda screwed.
Griff (Celestial Blues Trilogy by Vicki Pettersson): Griff had me at hello and I did a 1940s style swoon. You see, Griff is an angel of sorts sent back to help guide people to the Everlast after a violent death. Why do I love him so? Because he died in the days we now call Rockabilly, and he has one helluva fashion sense and the swagger to match.
Desmond (Secret McQueen Series by Sierra Dean): I adore this sexy piece of were, more so than Secret does. He smells like fresh limes and has a tongue that would kill a mere mortal. What’s not to love?
Lon Butler (Arcadia Bell Series by Jenn Bennett): Pirate mustaches, spiral demon horns and a laid-back attitude make Lon so HOT I have been known to skip ahead to find the “Lon parts." I love that Lon doesn’t need fancy clothes or a trendy attitude to be awesome, he just is.
Terrible (Downside Series by Stacia Kane): Come on, it’s Terrible!!! Brute strength, a sensitive side and a love of reading and music make him pretty special. I don’t care that he’s not pretty, pretty is overrated. His dialect is pretty freaking cool too... True thing...
Vishous (Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward): Okay, first of all this guy is made of smarts...who doesn’t love a guy with a brain? Combine this with tattoos, mad skills as a weapons AND jewelry designer and it’s a big WIN. Plus maybe he could teach me how to actually use a computer. Well, maybe not. LOVE THIS GUY
From Dance by Judy Cuevas, Sebastien de Saint Vallier: He is so, so hot because he is so very, very tightly buttoned-up. Throughout the whole of the novel, I had the urge to muss him up somehow. Get him dirty. Drag him off somewhere and force him to do…things. Dirty, messy things. He makes you long to see him sprawled out with his hair fallen into his eyes.
From Miss Milton Speaks Her Mind by Carla Kelly, Scipio Africanus Butterworth. Scipio has a humble personality and is a sweet friend, and he looks after the workers in his mill, which makes him a political liberal for his time. He’s my kind of guy! It’s obvious he’d be a sweet, shy lover, but I suspect he could be enticed into even more considerable consideration for a woman’s…needs and perhaps even into reading Mary Wollstonecraft.
From These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer, Hugh Davenant. Hugh is overlooked in favor of Avon, but considering how long the two of them have been friends, I suspect there’s a lot more to Hugh than we’ve seen on the surface. Else why would he hang out with a social outlier (aristocrat or no) like Avon so much? Hugh’s…intriguing. What’s he like, underneath his spiffy Georgian outfits? What has he learned from Avon? Does he deserve a cool evil nickname of his own?
Christian Grey from Fifty Shades of Grey: The billiard table scene, hello! But really, despite his prowess in the sheets, he’s all about consensual pleasure and absolute shamelessness. No matter what goes on, he refuses to allow shame or self-consciousness into the bedroom.
Basil Trevelyan of Loretta Chase’s The English Witch: A rogue with a terrible reputation, but he’s so mischievous and charming, and when he falls, he falls hard, fast, and forever.
Carlos Rivera of L. A. Banks’s Vampire Huntress series: He has swagger for days and watching him handle his business—first as the head of a major record label and then as a double-crossing vampire from hell—is phew! *fans self*. I adore a man who is cold and calculated in the boardroom, but tender in his private life.
Is there anyone on the list that you would fight our bloggers for? Is there anyone you can’t believe we missed? Who would be on YOUR list? Weigh in now and then continue on to Part 2 of The List for more bloggers’s choices!
