My favorite hero? The Beast in Beauty by Robin McKinley. Technically, it’s a young adult novel, but who cares about technicalities? At its heart, the book is a beautiful love story. Why do I like the Beast so much? Because he’s kind and gentle and recognizes Beauty’s, well, beauty long before she does. And he’s willing to die so she can go back to her family and be happy. You can’t get much more romantic than that.
Second runner up: James Bond. Yeah, I’m a Bond girl. Go figure. 😉
