Heroes.

Isabel Says:

When I began reading Once and Always by Judith McNaught, everyone mentioned how yummy Jason Feilding was. When I finished the book, I thought, "what a jerk. He treated Tory like crap and how can they love him?!" I wasn't really impressed by him.

So this got me thinking. There are heroes we all gush about. Heroes that we all love. The Ultimate hero. The hero we all can agree are just all that and a bag of chips. Then there are heroes who are great, but for some reason, don't get that much love. The ones you love, but some reason, no one has heard of them or are like "meh, he's all right." Then the over rated hero. The ones everyone loves but you can't understand why.

Here my lists of the ultimate heroes (based on how many women go on about these men and I agree that yes they are a hot hero.). The heroes I love, but don't seem to get much love. And the over rated hero.

My Ultimate Hero:

1) Drustan Mckelter from Kiss of the HIghlander by Karen Marie Moning. Come on now, the scene where he trying on the jeans. "Touch my sock."
2) Adam Black from The Immortal Highlander by Karen Marie Moning. She did a real good job making us hate him in the first book and then totally redeeming him in his book. Wouldn't you want that hunk of man sitting with you in your cubicle?
3) Ash from Sherrilyn Kenyons Dark Hunter series. So mysterious, so sexy. Every book about the dark hunters, we learn a little more. From what I've heard, Ash will have 2 books. Yeah.
4) Dageus McKelter from The Dark Highlander by Karen Marie Moning. How can you not love him. Went back time to save his brother and sacrafice himself. Went around with the dark magics inside him. sigh.....

Heroes who I think are great but don't get much love:

1) Derek Craven from Dreaming of You by Lisa Kleypas. I love this man. He's my favorite hero. Thought he was unworthy of loving Sara. Pushed her away thinking she deserved more and then realized he needed her.
2) Simon Basset from the The Duke and I by Julia Quinn. All he wanted was his father's approval, never got it. Was embarresed of his stammer and desperatly tried to hide it. Everyone goes on about Anthony or Colin, but where is the love for Simon?
3) Connor MacAllister from The Wedding by Julie Garwood. His father made him promise to avenge his death. Basically told him to not fall in love. Connor carried all that hate inside of him for a long time.
4) Sir Ross Cannon from Lady Sophia's Lover by Lisa Kleypas. Buried himself with his work. Felt guilty for the death of his first wife. Knows how to use that chamber horse.


Over rated heroes:

1) Iain Maitland from The Secret by Julie Garwood. Over on a bulletin board, all the women rave about this man. They think he's the greatest hero Julie Garwood created. I cannot understand why. I did like him, don't get me wrong. But he just isn't all that to me.
2) Roarke from the JD Robb's In Death Series. I admit, I have never read the JD Robb series. The plot just doesn't interest me what so ever. So he probably shouldn't be on my list, but I hear so much about him that he is.
3) Jason Fielding from Once and Always by Judith Mc Naught I just read his book and I thought he was kind of jerk. Why everyone thinks he's so great, I don't know.
4) Zarek of Moesha from Dance with the Devil by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I love him, I do, but I just didn't think he was all that.

Holly's Picks:
My Ultimate Hero:

1) Dageus MacKeltar from The Dark Highlander by Karen Marie Moning. He made the ultimate sacrafice for love, not once, but twice. He condemned himself to a lifetime of hell so that his brother could live a life full of love. What's not to love?
2) Ben Lewis from Heart of Fire by Linda Howard. The man is sexy, dangerous and a complete horndog! *dreamy sigh*
3) Connor MacAllister from The Wedding by Julie Garwood. He spent his life trying to avenge a wrong done to his father and learned to open his heart to his bride. Fierce, strong and sexy!
4) Calvin Morrisey from Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie. The man was a veritable god among men. Sweet, compassionate, funny, loyal..and surprisingly..not perfect. Krispy Kreme's anyone?

Heroes who I think are great but don't get much love:

1) Nick Allagrezza from Truly, Madly, Yours by Rachel Gibson. He was shunned by his father, and in love with the wrong girl his entire life. He needs love, ladies...*sigh*
2) Alex Markov from Kiss An Angel by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. He was tortured and felt unworthy of offering or receiving love, and yet he gave all that he could.
3) Robert "Bit" Carroway from England's Perfect Hero by Suzanne Enoch. He was imprisoned and tortured..but still managed to overcome all of his fears for the woman he loved.
4) Adam Black from The Immortal Highlander by Karen Marie Moning. Sure, we've all heard the name, but I think he gets overlooked as a great hero because of his rocky start in Beyond the Highland Mist.


Over rated heroes:

1) Derek Craven from Where Dreams Begin by Lisa Kleypas. Sure, he was a great hero, tortured and feeling unworthy, but I just don't see why so many people rave about him like he was the best thing since sliced bread. Makes no sense to me at all.
2) Iain Maitland from The Secret by Julie Garwood. Like Isabel, I just don't understand the attraction. He was a great hero, sure, but I don't think he deserves all the kudos he gets.
3) Sam Starett from The Seals Series by Suzanne Brockman. He was an alright hero and I liked seeing his character develop over several books, but he wasn't nearly as swoon worthy as so many make him out to be. Not that I thought he sucked or anything, but what's all the hype about?
4) Zarek of Moesha from Dance with the Devil by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I love him, I do, but I just didn't think he was all that. DITTO!

Dylan's Picks:

My Ultimate Heroes:

1) Dageus MacKeltar from The Dark Highlander by Karen Marie Moning- He made the ultimate sacrifice first for the love of his family and brother and second for his true love. He was all that and then some and then some more and he had the Pepsi and bag of chips, yes sir he did.
2) Sam Starrett from Gone Too Far by Suzanne Brockmann- It took him forever and six books to finally get his happy ending and I seriously loved him right from the very beginning, he was REAL, that's what I loved most about him.
3) Connor McAllister from The Wedding by Julie Garwood- Ignorant of the good things surrounding love, grew up a fierce and strong warrior with little patience for with women and love, but learned to love with everything he was, just flippin' LOVED him.
4) Calvin Morrisey from Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie- Tall, dark and handsome. GORGEOUS, fell in love with someone his kind shouldn't have fallen in love with according to societies standards, but it didn't stop him from loving Minn Dobbs completely for who she was and not what she looked like and loved him even more when he help Minn realize that she was okay the way she was, that he loved her for all that and so much more. *sigh* SEXY.

Heroes I think are great but don't get much love.

1) Sin MacAllister from Born in Sin by Kinley MacGregor- This was a great hero but you don't hear too many people gushing about him, he was a fierce warrior who had to fight to stay alive, LOVED him.
2) Cian MacKeltar from Spell of the Highlander by Karen Marie Moning- I seriously love this man, he was strong, extreme smart and he loved with all that he had, what's more to love? It's just weird that he's not a lot of women's favorites, he should be ALL women's favorites.
3) Ben Lewis from Heart of Fire by Linda Howard- This guy is one guy that I would actually really want to be with in real life, he was the perfect mix of funny, sexy and protective...how come not many people love him?
4) Cam Quinn from Seaswept by Nora Roberts- He's got everything you could want in a man. Good looks. Family Oriented.FRIGGIN HOT...what else do you need to know?

Over rated heroes

1) Roarke from the In Death books by JD Robb- I thought he was hot, don't get me wrong, but he wasn't hot enough for me to finish out the series...he just didn't grab me the way that he did most other women...I just don't see it.
2) Iain Maitland from The Secret by Julie Garwood- He was a hottie for sure, but he wasn't ALL that...
3) Theo Buchanan from Mercy by Julie Garwood- For me, his brother Nick was always hotter, but for some reason this guy seems to be the popular Buchanan...he's hot, I loved him, I just don't see how he's hotter than Nick, but to each his own.
4) Cal Bonner from Nobody's Baby But Mine by Susan Elizabeth Phillips- Okay, this guy I didn't really care for, I mean I liked him, but I liked Kevin Tucker WAY more, I loved Dan Calebow WAY more and so I don't get why he's the hotter guy, but thats just me.

It amazes me how different people love different things about the same guy, the way one person loves something about Dageus, another person absolutely detests that in the same guy...it really blows my mind. But I guess that's what makes the world go round.

Who are YOUR ultimate heroes?
