Roarke is my favorite and Hawke is a close second.

Shira said...

I think F'lar from Pern (Anne McCaffrey) is my all-time favorite.

I also love Lucas, Judd, Vasic, Raphael, Illium and pretty much all the major characters from your books, Dragos from Elder Races, Charles and Adam from Mercy Thompson, and Clayton from Otherworld (Kelley Armstrong).

It's very difficult to pick just one. So I'll pick the last great hero I read - Tack Allen from motorcycle man by Kristen Ashley

library addict said...

Lucas, Judd, Max, Nathan, Walker, Kaleb, Aden, Zach... Also Gabriel, David...Drew Miller, Colin Donovan, Jack Pallas, Josh Kowalski, Harry Stratton Trevelyan, Kevin Grove, Shawn Gallagher, Gabriel Jones, Erik Toleffson, Ellis Cutler, Sam Stark, Damon Wilder, Jonas Harrington, Ryland Miller, Ken Norton. Eek, I could go on, but too many and how can I take anyone away?

I already have a signed copy of Shards so no need to enter me in the contest. I just wanted to play along.

I am a big "Honor" fan and also Anne Elliot from Jane Austen's Persuasion.

For both of them....even though it has taken the long road around...life turns out pretty great in the end.

Unknown said...

My favourite character would have to be Kate Galaweigh from the Secret texts wouldgy by Holly Lisle. This is because not only is she the first romantic fantasy heroine I read, but also the series was cancelled before her story was ended which leaves without closure. Some people like to make up their own endings for favourite characters, but if I could do that why would I read books? I do love all your characters but the way you always end things makes me feel like I can put them to rest so to speak. I also am really enjoying Eileen Wilks' Lily Yu and Rule (also Toby).

powerse said...

Curran, reyes

powerse said...

Curran, reyes

Sarah said...

Kaleb Krychek, Lucas, Hawke, Raphael, Wynter from The Winter King by C.L. Wilson, and Cam from Wait For You by J. Lynn

Raphael and Elena (Guild Hunter)
Adam and Mercy (Mercy Thompson)
Cyn and Raphael (Vampires in America)

Such great series, I can never get enough!

Unknown said...

Pick ONE?! Soooo hard! But if I have to pick one, I've got to go with Vasic. I re-read or re-listen to Shield of Winter every 2 months or so. Come to think of it, that may be why he is the winner in my "pick one"; I'm listening to the audiobook right now! :D

Holly said...

Right now it's Arcadia Bell from Jenn Bennett's series. Really enjoy her books.

Crissa said...

Kaleb, Judd, Aden and Vasic (Psy-Changeling series) and Raphael Dmitri, and Naasir (Guild Hunter series) by Nalini Singh
Dragos (Elder Races series by Thea Harrison)
Rune, Thronos, Trehan, and Lothaire (Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole)

I'm just absolutely in love with ALL of them :D

Unknown said...

Right now I'm obsessed with Kulti from Kulti by Mariana Zapata!

lynneve said...

My favorite heroes of fiction are Sam, Frodo, Merry and Pippin. Because without those four hobbits, Middle Earth would not have been saved.

And it always reminded me that even though I may be small and not the first people will think of for help, I can still play a part in something bigger.

Sandra said...

Aodhan, because you just have to love that angel
And Peter Grant (from Ben Aaronovitch) So funny!

Unknown said...

Roarke is still my first favorite. Raphael second, and Vasic third :D

Eva said...

Some of your heroes: Hawke,Venom and Naasir ...
Durzo Blind (The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks).
Gabriel (The Fourth Realm Trilogy by John Twelve Hawks).
Maloner (Catch of the Day by Kristan Higgins).
Miles (The Wrong Woman by Kimberly Truesdale).
Thorne (Claimed by a Demon King by Felicity Heaton).

Kathi said...

Osmary said...

Rhage (Black Dagger Brotherhood)
Acheron (Dark Hunters)
Torin (Lords of the Underwold, sadly I didn't love his book)

Tanika said...

There are so many favorites at this moment!

So I'm going to mention the first heroes I loved. It's a 3 way tie between Harry Potter and the two Hardy Boys.
I always thought Frank Hardy was so much better for Nancy Drew than Ned. :)

Katy said...

Some of my favorite fictional heroes are Kaleb, Hawke, Drew and Judd (Psy-Changeling series) :)

Unknown said...

Hawke and Kaled would have to be my favourites. Although I loved Emmett in Whisper on Sin.

Outside of your books
I loved Trent in ten tiny breaths
Simon in wallbanger
Four in divergent
Ethan in between the lives
Kiro in kiro's emily
Patch in hush hush
Gabriel in wither
Macon in the selection
Rush in fallen too far

Then finale
Annie in a wanted man
The only female hero
She saved a girl only barely a teenager from her marriage to a jailed felon and her uncaring family and gave her a new life and new hope.

Unknown said...

Roarke from JD Robb's in death series is one of my all time favourites!

FlameoftheMiko said...

Well this is a hard one to answer, so I'll go with the books that I love to re-read. Sebastian Angelstone from Dangerous by Amanda Quick, Clay Bennett from Mine to Possess, and Rand T'Ash from Heartmate.

Arissa S. said...

My favorite of all times is Kaleb and than Hawke, Judd (Psy-Changeling).

Thanks for the giveaway!

Ange of Tampa said...

steph29 said...

Hawke takes 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for me. I also like Roarke, Bones, Judd, Kaleb, Drew, Eve Dallas, Reseph/Pestilence, Reaver & Harvester, Gideon, Max Gray, Wolfe.

Nemo said...

Recently I founded myself fall in love with Naasir, because he is so cute and the way he think and look at world is so sweet naive ♡ but, like every addicted to books, I have plenty of beloved characters and heroes from many different books so... :)

ladyreadsalot66 said...

Like many I find it hard to choose one. I noticed a lot of people only thought of male heroes. I thought of both females and males. My top choice is Eve Dallas. Even after 30 plus books I still want to know what is going to happen next. She gets the job done and know she is not perfect doing it. Her character has grown wiser and stronger.
If we have to keep it to just males then top coice is Hawke. His strength, protective instinct and capacity for caring resonate for me.
Thank you to everyone who gave lists. I now have lots of new reading possibilities to check out.
Whatever you are celebrating this time of year may it be a joyful and stress free time!!

Noureen said...

Zaira, Kate Daniels, Rey from Star Wars...I think bad ass should describe a fictional hero especially a female one.

tamara (NL) said...

Just one ?
Vasic, that book really made me laugh with the teleport thing during intimacy.

Pamk said...

Kate Daniels and cullen, Brianna and char, all of Nalini's character

Kat said...

I really like Clay. The amount of passion hidden away is quite lovely.

Sera H. said...

Adria will always be my favorite heroine. She is strong both mentally and physically. I have nothing but respect for a woman who has been emotionally damaged yet was able to put herself back together. Sahara is my second favorite heroine. She is strong in her own way and I have deep respect for her strong will.

Isha said...

Too many to pick from...but off the top of my head right now: Illium (I can't wait for his turn in the series!), Raphael, Kaleb, Aden, and Roarke from J.D. Robb's (Nora Roberts') "In Death" series which I'm reading now!

Unknown said...

So many to pick but I do love Lucas and Kaleb from your Psy-Changeling.
Rhage and V from Wards Black Dagger Brotherhood.
Riley and Quinn from Keri Arthurs Guardian series.

My favorite hero is which ever one of yours I am reading at the time. And Roarke, of course. But it all started with Tarzan and John Carter which I still re-read.

Sooo many to name...but my favorites from your books are Hawke, Rafael, Naasir and Dmitri to name a few!

Anonymous said...

Hmmm...just one? It would have to be Sahara Kyriakus. Why? No matter what happened to Sahara, she is stubborn, strong, and smart to take on Kaleb (just like Sienna would be my second choice---got to be stubborn, strong, and smart to take on Hawke). That charm bracelet of hers tells the whole story between her and Kaleb.

Patricia S

Showanda said...

Roarke-J.D. Robb
