I know it's going to be tough but bear with me here. There's a method to this madness (I'll reveal that later) and I need you to list your top 5 heroes of all of Nora's books. That includes both single title and series in one list.

You'll have opportunities to change and tweak your lists so don't feel as if you're stuck forever if you later change your mind.

So, who are your five all time heroes from Nora's world?

(P.S. - You can include the J. D. Robb books)

2. Cam Quinn Sea Swept
3. Aidan Gallagher Jewels of the Sun
4. Devin MacKade The Heart of Devin MacKade

Nice list! I started to put Larkin from the Circle Trilogy (I know everyone loves Cian but I'm a sucker for dragons). Grayson is a GREAT choice but I haven't read Heaven and Earth.

You should read it! Mac is like a teddy bear. Plus, he's brainy. I love brainy heroes. He's a bit clumsy too but that's why I love him. :) The heroine, Ripley, reminds me a bit of Eve.

Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 5740 comments Mod
I'll definitely add it to my list!

Okay, I'm losing it! I didn't recognize the title until you said Ripley!!! This is Three Sisters Island and I do love Mac!!!

Haha! Maybe I shouldn't have used his full first name. :D

Jennifer (jenny-g) this will be hard! I'll have to think about it..... I like Mac too and your right, Ripley reminds me of Eve.

Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 5740 comments Mod
Ooh, Feeney!! That's a new (and great!) one.


message 20: by Maggie (new)

Maggie | 715 comments If Feeney hadn't been there to show Eve that some men can be trusted and are good, would she have been able to love Roarke? They say girls marry their Dads, well in all the ways that really count Feeney is Eve's father and I think he got the ball rolling on Eve's healing.

ANother list that has two in common with mine! You have Cian and Shawn on your list. A+ in my book, plus, yeah...Irishmen are the bomb. I've seen Cian on here a few times, including my list, but I think you, Talya, and I are the ones in the Shawn Gallagher club.

Cameron Quinn seems to be very popular.
