I like that the participation post and challenge compliment each other today! So, let’s get started.
My favorite fictional Bad Boys.
I’m starting with Jericho Barrons from the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning
He’s described like this:
“He didn’t just occupy space; he saturated it. The room had been full of books before, now it was full of him. About thirty, six foot two or three, he had dark hair, golden skin, and dark eyes. His features were strong, chiseled. I couldn’t pinpoint his nationality any more than I could his accent; some kind of European crossed with Old World Mediterranean or maybe an ancestor with dark Gypsy blood. He wore an elegant, dark gray Italian suit, a crisp white shirt, and a muted patterned tie. He wasn’t handsome. That was too calm a word. He was intensely masculine. He was sexual. He attracted. There was an omnipresent carnality about him, in his dark eyes, in his full mouth, in the way he stood. He was the kind of man I wouldn’t flirt with in a million years.”
I’d just want to sit there and drink wine and stare at him.
Moving on in a different direction, to a true Southern rebel: Rhett Butler. I loved him in the book and hated Scarlett for being such a bitch to him. And it helps that I’ve always had a crush on Clark Gable.
Suck it, Scarlett, I’ll take Rhett. We’ll drink some bourbon and go for a drive in the country.
And finally, Khal Drogo. Sigh. I’m still not over him. I didn’t like him at first. He was a total brute. But Daenerys set him straight. He was brutal, but…sweet. And hello, Jason Momoa!
