I think it goes without saying that I'd choose my husband above any and all men in the world, fiction or not. But, if I lived within the written pages of a book these are the men I would choose.
Mr. Darcy of Pride and Prejudice (Bantam Classics) (Jane Austen)
Slade Taggart from Out of the Shadows . . . Into the Light (Candace Salima)
Ethan Quinn from Rising Tides: The Chesapeake Bay Saga #2 (Nora Roberts)
Adam Rutherford from Into the Light (Judith Duncan)
Luke Danner from All Night Long (Jayne Ann Krentz)
Noah Bishop from "Bishop" Special Crimes Unit Series (Kay Hooper)
Gabe Dalton from Miss Emmaline and the Archangel (Rachel Lee)
Marc Chastain of Kill and Tell (Linda Howard)
The characteristics these men all share is their willingness to fight for what is right, defend their loved ones and others in need, fierce patriots, tender but tough hearts, tall strong bodies and the ability to keep going no matter the cost. If these men really existed, my heart would definitely be beating a little faster.
On a side note: my job at LDSBlogs.com is taking a little more time than I believed it would as we get everything refined, edited, molded, etc. Because of that I haven't been able to make all my usual visits to my blogging friends. I miss you all! I'll be dropping by Sunday, after I return from a speaking engagement on Joseph Smith in Santaquin.
On Sunday, for the first time in two years, my husband and I get to go to church together. He received a promotion at work, he's now home at night AND gets every other Sunday morning off. It has been a wonderful transition and I am SO excited to go to church tomorrow.
