Romance's Most Likely banner

School may be (nearly) back in session for the kiddies, but master classes in romance are held year-round. Which is why we've decided it's high time to spotlight some of the past year's best and brightest romance characters through superlative awards decided by you! Nominations are now open for Romance's Most Likely, and we can't wait to hear who's top of the class for you!

So how will this all work? Like with any superlative contest, it's time to nominate your favorites. There are only two rules:

1) The character, couple, or group nominated must have been featured in a book between September 1, 2016 and August 31, 2017.

2) Only one choice per category—and don't forget to include the Author and Title the characters were featured in so we know exactly who you're talking about!

THE NOMINATION PERIOD IS NOW CLOSED!
VOTE FOR THE FINALISTS HERE!

Look over the categories below and for each title make your choice. Nominations will be open from August 16-August 23, so get campaigning today and make sure your favorite characters get the opportunity to fight for their title! Romance's Most Likely voting will start on August 30, with winners revealed on September 13 in the H&H weekly newsletter. Since newsletter subscribers will be the first to learn the results, make sure you're on the list now!

OMG WHY IS THIS SO HARD!!!! And all the couples that first came to mind JUST missed this deadline!

Best First Kiss (couple): Jackson and Devon in Owning It by Devon McCormack and Riley Hart--OMG when they finally kissed. HAWT.
The Characters Who Most Need to Make Out Already—But Haven’t Yet (couple): Zynda and Marskal! When I read more about Zynda in The Edge of the Blade, I thought "She needs to make out with someone" I can't wait for The Shift of the Tide!
Best Ensemble (e.g. Dumbledore's Army): The men and women of McKay-Taggert in Lexi Blake's Masters & Mercenaries series! I love their chemistry and that quite a few of them appear in every single book!
Most Likely to Charm Your Pants Off: Prince Henry in Royally Matched by Emma Chase
Best Redemption Arc/Most Changed: Bryan in The Cad and the Co-ed by Penny Reid & L.H. Cosway (I love this series and I loved watching Bryan clean up his act)
Best Secondary Character: Ruthie from Tiffany Reisz's Her Naught Holiday (she's in it for so little but made such an impression)
Most Likely to Save Us from the Alien Invasion: Shepard Olsen in Rebekah Weatherspoon's Haven (just think, he's hidden away, he is protective and takes pictures of nature, he's gonna know when something's coming)
Best Road Trip Buddy: Beau Winston in Penny Reid's Beard in Mind. If the car breaks down he'd be able to fix it back up and he'd keep me awake while I drove!
Most Likely to Rescue a Wounded Bird: Imogen Pritchard from Kerrigan Byrne's The Duke
Most Likely to Miss Their Own Wedding: (this one is painful) Sasha in Amy Harmon's The Queen and the Cure
Most Resourceful: Elle Burns in An Extraordinary Union by Alyssa Cole
Most Likely to Make You Laugh Until You Cry: (I know this was published previously but Amazon is showing it as an April 2017 book!) Tessa from Level Up by Cathy Yardley! She and I would just make dumb fandom jokes until we were crying.
