Whose Death Shocked You the Most?

Yesterday, we ran a spoiler-filled post about a death on a television show, which shocked fans of the show and broke up a popular 'ship (don't click if you don't want to know!).

Today, we're asking you to tell us—whose death in a romance novel shocked you the most? Have you recovered yet?

I am firmly in the HEA camp, so I screen books pretty closely for any signs that the author is going to pull a surprise on me. So Jeffery death in Karin's Slaughter's series about Grant County??? was surprising. Now, I didn't have the read the book to get the spoiler. The author did have it available, she gets kudo for that -- still the only reason I had continued to read the series was for their HEA, so I was a little put out.

For me it was Ethan in the Chicagoland Vampires books.

Definitely Jeffrey Tolliver in the Grant County series by Karin Slaughter. I fell in love with this series from the first book and was rooting for Jeffrey and Sara's relationship. When things finally seem like they're going right, he's murdered. I was crushed; I still read the series but it's obviously not the same anymore.

Not a romance, but Lady Helen in Elizabeth George's Lynley and Havers series. Broke my heart!

Good gosh! Killing off Ethan of Chicagoland Vamps was a terrible thing to do in my opinion. Yes author certainly can plot things any way she wants to but this...this was unrecoverable in my opinion. And her next book was correspondingly weak while she attempted to regroup. Have not bought another one of these books.

Hmmm... I took Kisten's death from Rachel Morgan series really hard.
I walked away from series completely only to get back to it last year.

Antonia the werewolf and her vamp beau in MaryJanice Davidson's Betsy series killed my interest in it.

Aurora Teagarden loses her husband in the middle of the eponimous series by Charlaine Harris. It was a mystery series, but still, we'd seen the courtship for several books, plus the marriage and then Martin was the corpse of the new installment. What a shock!
