1. Comment on this post and ask for a letter.
2. I will give you one.
3. Think of 5 fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and post their names and your comments on these characters on your blog.
My letter, courtesy LorelieLong, courtesy of Carrie Lofty, was K. I spent two days trying to come up with 5 fictional characters that started with K and I couldn't think of one so I had to go back and ask for another letter. This time I got a different one - R. I still had a tough time, but I did manage to think them up.
No, no I don't mean the boy Robin in the current BBC series. He hardly stacks up against Guy of Gisbourne. I mean THIS Robin
. When I saw a clip on YouTube, I just had to get the first series with Michael Praed.
Mind you I haven’t watched it yet. Apparently things don’t end so good for this Robin.
And then of course we have the movie Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves. I got the extended version of this movie - thought it wasn't really that good. Anyway, I've always liked this movie - despite it being a bit silly. And I do love the soundtrack
Roarke from the In Death books
Is there any better hero really? I know some might take Jamie Fraser but I'd take Roarke any day. Who can resist a bad boy billionaire with a lilt of Ireland in his voice. A hero who will do anything it takes to protect the love of his life. A hero who carries a button around with him as a reminder of that woman. He rocks my socks!
Darn! I just gave away my next book for Guess That Book! Ah well, I'll have to think up another one.
Jackson Rule is the hero in the book Jackson Rule by Dinah McCall. I read this one when it first came out - and an number of times since then - and it's remained pretty high up there in my all time favourite books, certainly in the top 15. And we are talking a lot of books through the years people! And the hero is the reason why. Read it - and you will know why this one is so special.
I've said in the past that Faith Devlin is one of my all time favourite heroines. Well Gray Rouillard of Linda Howard's After the Night is one of my favourite heroes. I know many may not agree with me. They may complain he's too alpha, he's a jerk and a player. But let's face it - you have to give props to a hero who is so 'into' a heroine that he will go charging after her into a women's washroom and then bar the door to any other woman who wants to use said washroom until the heroine is composed. Though it's been years and years since I first read this book - that scene causes him to be on my list.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhh Rob Roy. If anyone has seen this movie they have to know why he made it onto my list
"Do you know how fine you are to me Mary MacGregor?"
Now it may be argued that Rob Roy isn't a fictional character. I'm not 100% sure. But one simply MUST watch this video anyway. I can't tell you how many times I watched it last night while writing this up.
So there you have it - my R fictional (or maybe not) characters. If anyone wants to play - just ask for a letter.
