Giveaway: Fire Baptized author Kenya Wright reveals her top 5 irresistible book boyfriends!

by davincikittieMarch 24, 2012

I don’t intentionally read books to drool over hot muscular men. It’s just what happens. I’m enjoying the story, loving the plotline, and then out of nowhere a gorgeous guy steps on the scene, capturing my heart. I have plenty of book boyfriends, but I’ll just give you my top five drool-worthy hotties!

#1 CURRAN, The Beast Lord of Atlanta

Ilona Andrews- Magic Series
This blond hair and grey eyed Were-lion is funny and dangerous all at the same time. FYI, If you would like to date this guy, I would tread carefully because his girlfriend Kate knows her way around a sword.

#2 JERICHO BARRONS , The Lovable Sociopath!

Karen Marie Moning- Fever Series
Most of the series you have no idea what species Barrons belongs to, so I’m not going to say it, just in case some sad person out there has not had the pleasure to meet my sexy sociopath. Let’s just say he is an exotic looking guy with dark hair.

#3 RICHARD, The Wolf King

Laurel K Hamilton- Anita Blake Series
This tall, dark, and handsome Boy Scout is an unwilling member in Anita Blake’s harem. Many see him as a whiner, but I love his desire to stand up for what he believes in.


Jeaniene Frost- Night Huntress Series
This Vampire is a devoted and loyal lover who loves to bite interesting parts of the body.


Kim Harrison- Hollows Series
I just love my Vampires! Many people are probably saying, “Kisten? Who?” This hottie is in the earlier part of the series. To avoid giving away any spoilers I won’t say anymore, but after a certain book I sent some horrible emails to Mrs. Harrison.
(In fact, I don’t know if I am quite over the trauma or if Mrs. Harrison has stopped that restraining order. 🙁  )

Fire Baptized

by Kenya Wright

Since the 1970s humans have forced supernaturals to live in caged cities. Silver brands embedded in their foreheads identify them by species: a full moon for Vampires, a crescent moon for Shifters, a pair of wings for Fairies, and the list goes on, for each supernatural species has been tagged and categorized by humans.

Lanore Vesta is marked with a silver X, the brand of Mixbreeds, second-class citizens shunned by society. She stays to herself, revealing her ability to create fire only during emergencies.

All she wants to do is graduate college and stop having to steal to survive. But when she stumbles upon a murder in progress, she catches the attention of a supernatural killer. Now all she wants is to stop finding dead bodies in her apartment.

Enlisting help from her Were-cheetah ex-boyfriend MeShack and a new mysterious friend named Zulu, she is steered through the habitat’s raunchy nightlife. But their presence sometimes proves to be more burden than help, as they fight for her attention.While the corpses pile up, and the scent of blood fills the air, Lanore is left wondering: will she find the psycho or die trying?

    How to narrow this down?

    1. Irving (Izzy) Zanella ~ Suzanne Brockmann’s Troubleshooter series (absolute favorite!)

    2. Teagan – Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed Series

    3. Bill – Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse Series (though I am only on book 2 ~ late to the party ~ I know)

    4. J.T. ~ Jennifer Cruisie/Bob Mayer book Don’t Look Down

    5. Patrick Lawlor ~ he is a little different on this list. Mr. Lawlor is one of the best audio narrators of all time. Any book he reads just has me mesmorized. I could listen to him read the telelphone book he is that amazing! Much love for his talent and work!

        Reyes – ” He was like the desert, stark and beautiful, harsh and unforgiving, with promise of treasure behind every dune, the allure of water hidden just beneath the surface.”

    Wow, so far, I think Wraith is the only one of the Demonica brothers on these lists. I read the first two Demonica books (Edolin and Shade), but I haven’t gotten around to reading Wraith’s book yet.

    Sounds like I’d better get on that!
