Hello, Inspy friends! There is a common meme that visits the blogosphere every Tuesday called "Top Ten Tuesday." This week's topic was "Top Ten Books that Make You Swoon." It got me thinking; who are the leading men (or just the book in general) in inspirational fiction (or any genre) that are swoon-worthy and memorable to you?

Some of the heroes most memorable in my reading have been Alex Sinclair and Beckett Rush (of Jenny B. Jones Save the Date and There You'll Find Me), Caleb Knight, Jace Jacobsen and Joe Michaels (all heroes from the pen of Susan May Warren), Tony Lucano (from the 'To Catch a Theif' series), Cole McKenna (Submerged) and probably LOTS more that I'm missing but I figure I'd best quit while I'm ahead. ;)

Katherine I liked Texas Ranger Jake Nelson in "A River to Cross," by Yvonne Harris. I will always remember Gabriel, the Duke of Easton, in the "Forgotten Castle" series by Jamie Carie and then there is Dr. Caleb Fairbanks in "Waiting for Morning," by Margaret Brownley. All three men were awesome!

I've heard some good things about Jamie Carie's series, Katherine though haven't read them myself - the leading man sounds very noble and quite wonderful just by his name. :) Books that put their characters in law enforcement (i.e., Texas Ranger as you describe) always are even more heroic!

Thanks for sharing!

...and it sounds like a great list, Ganise!

I was going to say I've not had the pleasure of meeting any of these gentleman - *gasp* - but I think perhaps I've met Drew Connor. It would have been years ago though so don't quote me. ;)

I'm most aghast at needing to introduce myself to Evan and Connor. Great-sounding list!
