2014 Romance Blogfest's Hottest Guy Competion

Alright everyone, time to get to know some of the hottest guys from today's bestselling romance novels. Leave comments so we can tally the votes for the hottest guys!

The Contestants:


Name:  Micah Hawkins
Novel:  The Awakener
Author:  Amanda Strong

My name’s Micah Hawkins. I’m seventeen years old and have to save the world from fire.  No biggie, right?

Only a few months ago, my life was cruising along nicely.  Couldn’t complain.  Had friends, a girlfriend, and was even the captain of the football team. Got decent grades, nothing to brag about.  Life was easy.  Cool. Simple.

Then Eden showed up.  I admit was pretty shock when she practically jumped in my arms.  I mean, we hadn’t seen each other in five years.  She was taller, different, but I really didn’t think anything of it other than my best friend had moved back.

That all changed when the woman in red came.  She was an enchanting angel who showed me terrifying things. But it didn’t end with her.  Oh no, that was just the beginning.  Whether I liked it or not, I am the Seer now. 

Angels aren’t the only ones who know who I am. Demons track my moves and they hunt Eden.  I won’t let them get near her.  Together, we will win this demonic war we are mixed up in.  




Name:  Raiford
Novel:  The Raiford Chronicles
Author:  Janet Taylor Perry


All her life, Larkin Sloan had dreamed of a faceless dark-haired. Later dreams added blue eyes to that face. Then, she saw the bluest eyes she had ever seen. One problem--They belonged to a man named Raiford who had kidnapped her.


At the same time Larkin stared into fathomless blue eyes, Detective Raiford Reynolds stared at his reflection seeing the same eyes, but how could that be?


How could the same eyes be in two places at once? How could a sensible woman like Larkin find solace in the eyes in her dreams when they belong to a face of a man who might kill her?


The Raiford eyes. Only a face in my choice for hottest guy, but the eyes have it. They are the windows to the soul--but which Raiford's soul do you see? Are there really two?



Name:  Lachlan Mar
Novel:  The Outcasts
Author:  Glynnis Campbell

Sixteenth century handsome hunk LACHLAN MAR with his golden hair and silver eyes was once every Scottish lass's dream.  Now he is a damaged man, a soldier who has suffered not only the wounds of war, but the loss of the brothers he promised to protect.  Bitter and melancholy, he believes he's only half a man--unfit to be a husband, unworthy, and unlovable--yet he retains his honor, his loyalty, and his compassion.  He lives in a cottage at the edge of the woods with a gigantic Scottish deerhound as his only companion.  It will take a very special woman to restore his strength and self-worth, to heal him with the power of love.




Name:  Ketchup
Novel: Wicked Hunger
Author: Delsheree Gladden  
Real Name: ???

Nickname: Ketchup. I don’t think anyone remembers my real name at this point. 

Eyes: Baby blues, of course.

Hair: Black

Height and build: I’m a little over six feet tall and pretty solidly built. If you’re thinking I look a bit like Superman…you’d be right. Van used to tease me about it all the time.  Not so much anymore, though…

Hobbies: The legal ones? Well, I enjoy climbing things, mainly the tree in Van’s backyard. I suppose that’s legal, even if it does get on her nerves every once in a while. It’s more legal than picking locks and sneaking into places. Uh, yeah, that would be one of my less than legal hobbies. 

Quote:  “Normally, a little B & E would win every time, but visiting Oscar in a mental institution is always interesting. Okay, I accept.”




Name:  Mason
Novel: Wicked Hunger
Author: Delsheree Gladden

Eyes: Dark blue, although the silver ring around my pupil sometimes takes over when I’m either using my power or really happy.

Hair: Mostly blonde, but in the sunlight it looks a little red. There are times when I don’t get to see the sun very often, though.
Height and build: I’m fairly average in height for a guy, and I like to stay fit. I’m telling you all of this, but it’s not like it really matters. You won’t be able to see me anyway since I’m invisible. To most people anyway. If you can see me…let me know. It’s kind of important. 
Hobbies: Playing practical jokes on people. Really, there’s no end of jokes to be played when you’re invisible and you have Olivia and Evie as willing accomplices. 
Quote:  “Sometimes I get tired of being the guy nobody can see.”

Name:  Lucas
Novel:  The Spirit
Author:  d. Nichole King






Name:  Mike Carson
Novel:  The Spirit
Author:  d. Nichole King





Name:  Adam
Novel:  Wings Over Tremeirchson
Author:  Linda Ulleseit

Adam is eighteen. He's warm and outgoing, and he rides a winged horse! Unfortunately, his blond good looks and green eyes can't cover up the fact that he's really not very good at maneuvering that horse through the complicated aerial dance routine Hoel is directing. It doesn't help that the only one who offers to help him is the insanely jealous Hoel's fiancee. What's a girl to do?




Name:  Ben Harris
Novel:  Twenty Five
Author:  Rachel L. Hamm
Age: 28

Occupation: Small Business Owner / Entrepreneur

Hobbies: Baseball (anything sports-related, really), volunteering with Big Brothers, riding his motorcycle, hanging out with his niece and nephew.

Distinguishing Feature: His eyes. According to his girlfriend, Abby, they are "as blue as the ocean and as grey as the storm clouds overhead, both at once."

Ben is the ultimate Boy Next Door - the guy every woman wants to take home to Mom and Dad. He loves quickly and passionately, and has deep respect for all women. Fears flying and public speaking, but has the guts to do both when needed. He can be stubborn at times, but he makes up for it with sweet, grand gestures (ahem, photo album fulfilling Abby's lifelong dreams. ahem, flying across an ocean to apologize and propose).  His broad shoulders and killer smile don't hurt, either!

Quote: At the end of the song, she hugged me around the neck and I caught a whiff of her sweet vanilla scent. I squeezed her and a heavy weight bore into my chest. Oh my God. I'm in love with her. I couldn’t believe it. We'd been doing this slow dance of emotions and feelings and tiptoeing around all the serious issues, but there I was, completely and utterly in love with her.

Name:  Sedric Eckland
Novel:  Honor's Lark
Author:  Rachel L. Hamm

Age: 38
Occupation: Business Consultant and Marketing Expert


Hobbies: Wood-working, building furniture, puzzles, cars, FOOD!


Distinguishing Feature: His impeccably-tailored and expensive suits.


Talk about adorkable! Sedric has always been one to follow the rules and he loves studying contradictions. Give him a riddle or a puzzle and he's a happy man. He also loves exploring and can sniff out the best places to eat no matter what city he's in. His heart was broken when his mate (i.e. wife) died four years ago and he never expected to love again. Though he is usually calm, when he starts sparring with Honor, sparks fly! Falling in love with her teaches him that it's okay to break the rules every once in a while.
 
Quote: How could he ask me that? It wasn't a simple matter of yes, I wanted him to kiss me, or no, I didn't. Sedric wasn't like the other men I'd kissed in my life. He wasn't a faceless one-night stand, or a kid from ninth year I'd asked to show me what his tongue felt like. I'd remember Sedric's name in five, ten, fifteen years. I'd remember how brown his eyes were looking into mine. And how his lips parted ever-so-slightly as he leaned toward me. I'd never forget the way he smelled like he'd been outside chopping down trees all day.
I'd remember it all, but I didn't know if I'd regret it.


Purchase Links: Honor's Lark will be available for purchase through Amazon on May 15, 2014!

Name:  Marcus
Novel:  The Grateful Undead:  They're So Vein
Author:  Susan Steck
From Susan's mouth:
I didn't want Marcus for a mate, he insisted. And he's hot. It's hard to say no when a muscled, sexy guy wants to rock your world for all eternity but I tried, oh how I tried.

So what's my problem with having a vampire stud at my disposable day and night? Well, he's bossy. He's always trying to tell me what to do. Don't fang your sister. Don't stake Dorius. Don't hold Christopher's head in the toilet until the bubbles stop. Be polite, Susan. Listen to your mother, Susan.

Really, I'm not sure anyone's super large...(ahem) fangs are worth that kind of aggravation. But I've decided I don't have to stop having sex with him while I figure out if I want to keep him. That's fair, right?
