Here’s a roundup of swoony heroes from my 2018 reads! In no particular order:
The Sheehan Brothers – Stephanie Dees
The Sheehan brothers slid in in the last week 2018 and right into my heart. There is something about a man and his interactions with kids that make me swoon every time and Joe and Ash are great dads – even before they’re dads.
Jonathon Beckett – A Peculiar Courtship – Laura Beers
I love Jonathon while also wanting to inform him about women’s independence, but his boyish ways contrasting with his protectiveness win me over.
Barclay Pearce – An Hour Unspent – Roseanna White
Barclay. Swoon. I love him.
Noble Rynallt – The Lacemaker – Laura Frantz
Noble lives up to his namesake in this revolutionary tale.
Trace Riley – The Accidental Guardian – Mary Connealy
I relate to Trace’s desire to want to be alone, but I help but love him for the way he took on his three girls.
Graham, Lord Wharton – A Defense of Honor – Kristi Ann Hunter
I have to respect, admire, and swoon over Graham’s steadfastness. No floor is too hard, no sticky fingers too daunting. He pushes Kit to be a better version of herself while also giving her room to grow.
Cole “Tox” Russell – Warrior’s Seal – Ronie Kendig
Tox is your classic wounded hero. What I like about this series is that we get to see Tox develop beyond the initial romantic relationship onto a husband and father.
Adam Carrington – Freedom’s Kiss – Sarah Monzon
You can’t help but love a Carrington man. Plus, they’re hot.
Rudy Moser – Love in Three Quarter Time – Rachel McMillan
I love Rudy because he is such a different hero for a romance. This story is told from Evelyn’s perspective, but I would really love to hear it from Rudy’s!
Henry Wright – When You Look at Me – Pepper Basham
Because Henry is Mr. Wright after all (hardy, har, har). I also love Henry because he’s different than your typical hero. And his patience, oh my goodness, he’s so patient and gentle. Swoon.
I hope you found a few to add to your TBR pile for 2019! Who are your book boyfriends for 2018?
