My Book Boyfriend is an original meme created by Missie at The Unread Reader. For more information on the guidelines for using this meme on your blog, go to THIS DIRECT LINK 

My Book Boyfriend is:

Today's hero comes from The Secret Keeper: A Novel of Kateryn Parr, a brand new Tudor romance by Sandra Byrd.
Her first Tudor novel,  To Die For: A Novel of Anne Boleyn made my "best books of 2011" list and I'm sure this one will make the cut for 2012! It is, as you will see in my upcoming review, simply superb.
(And so is it's romantic hero.)

Ahhh, Jamie, Jamie, Jamie. He's the sort of guy who walks into a room and all sound stops. He's a warrior, a sailor, an Irish gentleman and, in short, a charming hottie who is part Chris Pine and part Michael Stahl-David (from The Black Donnolleys, a short-lived 2007 TV series I loved.) 
I think he looks a little like this, but in Tudor appropriate attire and a little bit longer hair, of course:

He's a good sort of bad boy. He's a lady's man with his eye on one particular lady -- Juliana -- who doesn't think she's the type to capture any good-looking catch's eye. But... that's her story, not his. So... on with the Jamie-ness!

Juliana describes this dashing Irish gentleman-warrior like this:
“His black hair charmingly tipped up at the ends like ravens’ wings; blue eyes were set in a sun-bronzed face that boasted a scruff that was undecided between a close beard and clean shaven.”

And, baby... that description had me at "hello." In fact, it reminds me a little bit of my own black haired, blue-eyed husband, the dashing Dave, about midsummer, when he thinks he needs a haircut. Although Dave's 2 o'clock shadow (yes, I said 2. He's very manly. Can't make it to 5)also includes a goatee.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out My Book Boyfriend this week. The Secret Keeper: A Novel of Kateryn Parr hit bookstores yesterday, so make sure you throw it in your cart so you can see why I think Jamie is such a fantastic leading man.

If you like this meme, hop on over to the The Unread Reader to check out Missie's pick for this week and find links to a bunch of other hunky book boys, too! And please come back to visit us at Edgy Inspirational Romance soon. Later this week I'll post my review of THE SECRET KEEPER: A NOVEL OF KATERYN PARR and you'll get a glimpse into its creation through my upcoming interview with Sandra Byrd.
