Which heroes are the most steadfast, constant, never-swaying in their devotion to the heroines out of the books you read? You know he'd never cheat or her or leave her, even twenty years after the book ends. Please list hero and book. Thanks!

Mollie *scoutrmom* (scoutrmom) | 635 comments Christine Feehan's Carpathian males, can't remember names off the bat but titles include Dark Prince, Dark Magic, and Dark Legend

She tends to write men in her series (possibly excluding the titles with Game in them) who psychically, chemical/hormonally or emotionally are so dependent on finding the right woman to save their sanity or soul, that they turn themselves inside out to please her once they've captured her. One of my favorites is Jackson in the Drake Sisters books.

Another example of this kind of tie would be Lora Leigh's Breeds, where DNA level changes occur in the non-breed partner due to what I think is a virus in the saliva and semen of the Breed. The tie on the Breed's side is emotional before it is physical, the glands producing the 'infected' fluids only surface after the 'mate' is found. The most recent example is Styx in Styx's Storm.

I admire both Feehan and Leigh for the ability to keep a series fresh after more than 20 books. Dark Prince (Carpathians, #1) by Christine Feehan Styx's Storm (Breeds, #22) by Lora Leigh

I do love how steadfast Feehan's heroes are. They might be dominating, but you know how much they love/adore their heroines.

I also like that Feehan and Leigh write strong personalities, both men and women, who end up revealing their weaknesses and insecurities to their loved ones. They are strong enough to open up and risk rejection.

Anne OK (anne-ok) | 8 comments Roarke from J.D.Robb's "In Death" series just popped into my mind. He's a favorite of mine and always stands behind his favorite lady detective!

Of course, there are so many, many others.

namericanwordcat | 242 comments I finally listened to Outlander...it was amazing..and I agree Jamie is the best. Pamela Morsi's heros too. Courting Miss Hattie by Pamela Morsi

Courting Miss Hattie is great!


message 15: by Shay (new)

Shay (shaylyn318) | 10 comments Funny that Jamie from Outlander is mentioned. Technically he did sleep with three other women. Plus had a child with another woman. Granted Claire was back in her time and he didn't think he would ever see her again but still. LOL


message 16: by Miau (new)

Miau | 7 comments The Mackenzie men from Linda Howard's The Complete Mackenzies Collection. Those men will be completely fascinated by (and head over heels in love with) their wives until the end of times.


message 17: by Jill (new)

Jill | 294 comments Shay,he knows his flaws though and totally owns them, I love Jamie.
“I will find you," he whispered in my ear. "I promise. If I must endure two hundred years of purgatory, two hundred years without you - then that is my punishment, which I have earned for my crimes. For I have lied, and killed, and stolen; betrayed and broken trust. But there is the one thing that shall lie in the balance. When I shall stand before God, I shall have one thing to say, to weigh against the rest."

His voice dropped, nearly to a whisper, and his arms tightened around me.

Lord, ye gave me a rare woman, and God! I loved her well.”



It also has to be said that Claire went back and slept with Frank, her husband.
He is still one of the best book heroes I have ever read.

I second this!! I discover so many books come now with billionaire theme. I don't know if they will top Roarke.

Max Savoie from Masked by Moonlight (Moonlight, #1) by Nancy Gideon . Then any heroes from Pride series by Shelly Laurenston. She also love writing epilogue and show that after so many years the hero still devoted to their woman

I agree. I love Jamie and Outlander is my favorite series. Technically though he did cheat but like you said so did Claire.

Kryptonite (sg34) | 406 comments Acheron in DH Series: Acheron (Dark-Hunter, #12) by Sherrilyn Kenyon
