Who Do You Wish Would Appear in a Romance Novel?

Romance readers do read—and watch—things beside their favorite genre. Many romance readers also dabble in genres such as fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and women's fiction, to mention just a few.

And we watch shows such as Doctor Who, Sherlock, the various CSI iterations, and other shows where the romance is not primary, and sometimes isn't even there. Just yesterday, for example, Chris Morgan wrote about the love life of Jim Butcher's protagonist Harry Dresden.

So—which character from a non-romance do you wish were a character in a romance novel?

@Juliabroadbooks: I am the WORST that I had to google that to figure out who it was. I might have to turn in my Nerd Cred Card (it's sparkly!). My choice would be Matt Smith's Doctor Who, hence the pic.
