finally, Meme on favorite Male lead.....

Ok, so I've been avoiding doing this one, I just have to go ahead and name some of my favourite male leads in a novel! Why, you say, am I avoiding this? It's because I wanted 'the one' I would marry if he were alive.....but then when I thought about it I decided, yes, I WOULD marry:
- Gilbert Blythe from Anne of Green Gables series. I think he was the first male lead that I swooned over, and fell in love when he called Anne Carrot on the first day that he met her, and was the only one who could equal her intellect. Plus, he is handsome and charming!
-Alonzo Wilder - yum, the second male lead I ever encountered that I fell head over heels in love with! A bit unpredictable, but he loves Laura so much........
- Mr Darcy and Mark Darcy - ok, Mr Darcy is rather frightening at first, but once we see him at home, WOW!! I love this guy, and I love Colin Firth playing him. He is proud, but he does the right thing, and he is honourable, and handsome, and smart - again, smart enough to equal Elizabeth Bennett. I think I see a trend here.....as for Mark Darcy, well, (again played by Colin Firth......darn, one of my secret movie star crushes is revealed!), he loves Bridget Jones even though she is a total twit - she has a good heart and is so kind, and he sees that in her - and she can laugh at herself (and his awful sweaters) - and tell the truth, don't we all have a little Bridget in us somewhere too? I know I do. So Mark Darcy because he loves her neurotic self, and I'd like my neurotic self loved too! And, he's smart!
- Joe Morelli and Ranger from Stephanie Plum series - even my mother admitted that they are hot, and together 'they make the perfect man'. And they both love Stephanie even though she is the worst bounty hunter ever - and gets her car blown up almost every book. I like Stephanie (I think she's hilarious) and I confess, I adore both Morelli and Ranger, they are so gorgeous and hunky and MOrelli has a great sense of humour and they both have sex appeal in spades......oh my. (fans herself)
-last but NOT least, Henry Tilson and Captain Wentworth from Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, respectively. Henry for having common sense, sincerity and being honest as well as good-looking, and Captain Wentworth because he still loves Anne 8 years after she dumped him. 8 years!!! And he's handsome, and a captain - successful in his Naval career, and mostly because he is quick to recognize Anne's strengths, and has the courage to ask her a second time to marry him. I have read this book it must be close to 10 times now, and still, every time she has to signal him at the end that she loves him, I wait for bated breath until she does.

These are the men that if they walked off the page, I would run away with instantly, no questions asked.

Well, I might have to fight a duel with you over Colin Firth/Mr Darcy. He is the hero I'd leave home for too. If you haven't seen it, you have to get yourself a copy of Love, Actually which is seriously schmaltzy as films go but which features our Colin in another romantic role.

I haven't thought about Gilbert Blythe since I was 11, but he was gorgeous. Definitely an early crush for me.

Hi Charlotte - A duel! That might be interesting.....maybe a duel of pens for love poetry for said Firth/Darcy? :-)
And we own a copy of Love, Actually, which is one of my husband's and mine favorite couple movies to watch. Since I enjoy watching all the men in that movie, I just gaze adoringly while he ignores the drool. Even Hugh Grant redeems himself somewhat.

So you read Anne of Green Gables in South Africa? Or had you left by then? I knew the Anne books were translated into many languages, but I didn't know it had made it there (if it did).
