Hunky Hero Post



The Royal Reviews Hunky Hero needs a bit of help in learning how to be a leading man!

So I've agreed to help him out with some pointers from my favourite hero



I've been tagged by the Hunky Hero over at Alaine's Reading Blog. This Hunky Hero has been making the rounds, if you know what I mean. I've seen him everywhere! What's a girl to do?


My Favorite Hero: This is a no brainer. Jamie Fraser from Diana Gabaldon's Outlander Series I'm borderline obsessive when it comes to him. Never did I think someone could make me forget Mr. Darcy, but this Scottish hero swept me off my feet!

Why he stole my heart:
Jamie is my dream man. He's a Scottish highlander, tall, brave, proud, honorable smart, handsome, virile, kind, compassionate and oh so sexy - aah, that accent! *swoon* I never thought I'd go for a red haired guy, but he has stolen my heart. His one love is Claire who drives him and he is true to her and her memory and never stops loving her. Plus, he's got a great sense of humor and is so cute when he tries to wink (which he can't do, and winds up blinking both eyes instead, like an owl!)

Favourite Quote/Excerpt:
"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 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."(From Dragonfly in Amber)

Who would play Jamie in a movie:
(Umm, if you look straight up to my banner, you'll see him.)



My first choice is Gerry Butler. *swoon* He might be a tad too old to play a 24 year old virgin, but hey, they can do anything in the movies now! Look what they did with Mel Gibson in Braveheart. At least Gerry has the muscles and accent going for him! I happen to be somewhat of an expert on this topic, since I make Outlander icons at LiveJournal of all the characters based on actors and actresses. But, another actor that I think would make a very sexy Jamie (but can he act?) is Halle Berry's main squeeze, Gabriel Aubry, and herself has even said she think he'd make a good one. But, something tells me whoever they choose to play Jamie in a movie (which is in the works so I hear), I just hope he's tall, broad shouldered and is a real Scot! (or at least fakes it like a real one!)

I'm not going to tag anyone, but if you feel like playing to help the Hunky Hero be my guest!

OMG, what an excerpt!! Yowzaa!

Fantastic Hunky Hero Post!

VFG-I know, everytime I read the excerpt I get tears in my eyes - thud!

Lea said...

This Hunk is certainly making the rounds! I've been pondering my hero all day Julie!

Excellent choice by the way! ::Tear in eye:: I remember that passage from "Dragonfly In Amber", well. :)

Warm Regards

Lea, there are so many wonderful excerpts from the books, but this one in my opinion is the most gut wrenching sad moment in the entire series. Interested in seeing who your hero winds up being!

Barbara said...

LOL! "borderline obsessive"! That's me with my hero.

I haven't read the series but he sounds yummy!

Blodeuedd said...

Many do seem to go with Jamie..and I haven't even started the books yet...the horror

Julie at Outlandish Dreaming said...

Barbara and Blodeuedd - Jamie is indeed special, he's actually so much more than a hero! All I can say is read the books!

Blodeuedd said...

I really must get to them :)
I even promised that to myself last summer, but maybe this can be the summer :)

Amy C said...

Outlander was supposed to be the book selection for June in this new book club my mom and I attend, but the lady that hosts it has summer classes so the there won't be any meetings until August. That's when we'll discuss Outlander. I plan on reading it before then though. That was a great excerpt. I'm really looking forward to reading it. So many people love this series.

Julie at Outlandish Dreaming said...

Amy, I can't wait to see what you think of it once you read it!

E.H. - I know I'm obsessed, but I'm not nearly as bad as I was two years ago, I was much worse then! LOL!
