I feel like I’ve been preparing for this blog post almost my entire reading life, since the moment I cracked the spine on Little House on The Prairie and contemplated the romantic attributes of Alonzo.
(I’d marry him – in case you were wondering…)
We’ll start with one of my most recent reading obsessions; Game of Thrones.
Game of Thrones
This is tricky since half the characters I’ve loved have ended up dead – so have many of the characters I’d kill. And Khal Drago – who I’d shag. But luckily, there are seven hundred more characters to choose from.
Kill: Theon Greyjoy – someone needs to put him out of his misery.

Marry: Tyrion Lannister – Life with Tyrion would never be dull and I love a man who can laugh at himself and commit patricide in the same day.
Shag: Jon Snow – *SPOILER* I refuse to believe he’s dead. REFUSE. And I think he got a great education down in the caves and he no longer knows nothing.
Jane Austen heroes – because this hasn’t been talked about enough…
Kill: Edward Ferrars – I always found him dull.
Marry: Mr. Knightly – he was the nicest of the lot with the best communication skills.
Shag: Mr. Darcy – despite his passive/aggressive attitude towards courting, I’d still shag him. And I’d be imagining Colin Firth all the while…
Kill: Rhett Butler – I actually want to kill Scarlet, but he’s the next best thing I suppose.
Marry: Jamie Fraser from Outlander – even though I will always be second to the Jacobite cause, I wouldn’t mind warming his kilt for the rest of my days.
Shag: Alex from The Bronze Horseman because it’s life or death all the time with that guy and I think that would make things pretty passionate.
Kill: Theo from The Goldfinch – someone needs to put ME out of my misery…
Marry: Mark Watney from The Martian – could you imagine how great he’d be with the chores around the house?
Shag: Nick Dunne from Gone Girl because I wouldn’t marry him and I think he might have some anger issues to work out, which would keep things interesting.
Kill: Christian Grey from 50 Shades of Grey – this is a tricky one, can I kill him after I shag him?
Marry: Samuel from The Shadow and The Star by Laura Kinsale – yes, he’s got some communication issues and piles and piles of childhood baggage, but he is my first and forever romance hero love.
Shag: Barrons from The Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning. He’s unpredictable, totally dark and probably the sexiest romance hero I’ve ever read.
About Molly O’Keefe’s Book
When Annie McKay hears a mysterious phone ringing in the trailer she just moved into, the last thing she expected was to be tempted – awakened – by the low, deep voice on the other end. The stranger was looking for someone else. Instead he found her. And she’s unable to resist.
