Blog Tour: Suddenly Royal

I am so excited to be a part of the Suddenly Royal blog tour! I love Nichole Chase and am so glad she is guest posting here today! (#2 and #3 are my favorites!)

My Top 5 Swoon Worthy Male Characters

Who hasn’t read a book where a character makes you swoon? Oh, you know what I mean. Your heart beat picks up a little every time he comes onto the page. You envision yourself as the leading lady and wish someone would kiss you just the same way. Or look deep into your eyes while struggling to express his undying love? Boy, have I found some of those characters throughout my years of voracious reading. And today, I’m going to share my top five picks.

#5 Jake Kelly from Double Clutch by Liz Reinhardt.
Jake is a reformed bad boy, intent on doing things right. He’s thoughtful, sweet, and oh, so deliciously intense! Jake will have you swooning every time he opens his mouth. There’s something honest and wholesome about his character, even though he’s not always been this good. Knowing that he’s trying to do it right, even though he wants to do it all wrong (as in right now!), makes him that much more tempting.

#4 Dr. Giovanni Vecchio from A Hidden Fire, The Elemental Series #1 by Elizabeth Hunter.
Gio, a sexy Italian with a love for old books. He speaks more languages than embassy diplomats, all while kicking ass, looking sexy, and shooting smoldering looks. There isn’t anything sexier than a man with iron-clad self-control, losing it for me. Ahem, I mean the heroine of the book.

#3 Jace from The City of Bones, The Mortal Instruments #1 by Cassandra Clare.
Oh, Jace. All of your bad boy goodness, wrapped with the silent yearning to be loved. It’s just too much for me to resist. Like Clary, I want to fix you, while enjoying your witty barbs and sarcasm.

#2 Fitzwillam Darcy, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
Oh, you prideful, arrogant man! How you played with my emotions during the book. Your lingering glances and thoughtful words, pulled at my heart. Your witty repertoire and intelligent conversation woo’d my brain. But your ability to utter a simple sentence with such sincerity won me all completely. Call me Mrs. Darcy any day. I’m putty in your hands.

#1 Carwyn ap Bryn from Building with Ashes, an Elemental World novel by Elizabeth Hunter
Carwyn, I claimed you as mine the moment you walked onto the page in A Hidden Fire. A sexy redheaded vampire with a killer sense of humor and a family man to boot—I was hooked. I’ll fight anyone that dares try to claim you. I love your fondness for bright, Hawaiian shirts, and I don’t even care that you watch pro-wrestling. There’s nothing sexier than your Irish accent and sense of humor. *sigh* *swoon* *sigh

Samantha Rousseau is used to getting her hands dirty. Working toward a master’s degree in wildlife biology while helping take care of her sick father, she has no time for celebrity gossip, designer clothes, or lazy vacations. So when a duchess from the small country of Lilaria invites her to dinner, Samantha assumes it’s to discuss a donation for the program. The truth will change the course of her life in ways she never dreamed.

Alex D’Lynsal is trying to keep his name clean. As crown prince of Lilaria, he’s had his share of scandalous headlines, but the latest pictures have sent him packing to America and forced him to swear off women—especially women in the public eye. That is, until he meets Samantha Rousseau. She’s stubborn, feisty, and incredibly sexy. Not to mention heiress to an estate in his country, which makes her everyone’s front-page news.

While Sam tries to navigate the new world of politics and wealth, she will also have to dodge her growing feelings for Alex. Giving in to them means more than just falling in love; it would mean accepting the weight of an entire country on her shoulders.

Author Bio:
Nichole Chase is a daydreamer. No, really, just ask any of the math teachers that had the misfortune of seeing her name appear on their class schedule.
For years she has had story lines and characters begging for attention, but she resolutely pushed them aside to focus on more normal (read, boring) jobs.
Well, no longer! She is currently heeding the voices in her head and frantically writing their stories. Ms. Chase is the author of the Dark Betrayal Trilogy, Flukes, and Suddenly Royal (including several short stories).
Nichole resides in South Georgia with her husband, energetic daughter, dog, tortoise, and two cats. When not devouring novels by the dozens, you may find her writing, painting, crafting, or chasing her daughter around the house while making monster noises.
