Top Ten Nine Books That Will Make You Swoon

These are the books that I found that had fantastic male leads. Gentlemen through and through!

1.Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherine Reay
Alex Powell is a quiet hero who loves books as much as Sam, the heroin. The relationship that happens grows, starting as a friendship and moves to something more. 
2. A Noble Groom by Jody Hedlund
Sigh...Carl Richards is the man of every girl's dream. He is considerate and he keeps the fairytale alive.
3. Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren
Really, it's the whole series. There are wonderful characters all the way through, but I'm partial to the comic of the men presented, Luca.
4. Against the Tide by Elizabeth Camden
Bane...I don't need to say anymore than that, ok, I guess I shall. Elizabeth Camden is able to write such a unique and captivating story. The leads Lydia and Bane face unique challenges. Their relationship was a roller-coaster.
5. Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz
The growth of Morrow and her understanding of Red Shirt and the progression of their relationship was a gripping story. I couldn't help but want more.
6. The Doctor's Lady by Jody Hedlund
As the story starts, the main characters, Priscilla and Eli are as different as they can be, but the journey they face in their marriage of convenience turns to something else for them as they progress in their travels.
Really, the whole series is just fantastic. Brady Stoner is every girl's dream of a cowboy. Respectful to all women, a tough rodeo cowboy, and he calls all women darlin'.
8.Sadie's Secret by Kathleen Y'Barbo
I'm still reading this story, but oh, how I like Jefferson Tucker! Kathleen Y'Barbo can create some very intriguing men for her stories.
9. A Talent for Trouble by Jen Turano
This story was about two people who even though were the cream of society were a bit on the outside, at least in their ideas. Felecia tried to change who she was for a man, but that fell flat. Grayson is an English gentleman who doesn't claim his title. Instead of being down, both offered their own fun sense of humor and their relationship blossomed on friendship.

What books made you swoon?


  1. Love that we had so many of the same on our lists! I almost put Dear Mr. Knightley and Jen Turano's books too but there were others that made me "swoon" just a little more! And I totally agree with you about Luca! He is the best!

  2. Loved Against the Tide. Such a beautiful book in more ways than one.

  3. I loved Waterfall and DMK. Fab list!

  4. Abbi, Great minds think a like! There are just so many books to choose from for this list! I can't wait for Deluge! One more trip to visit with Luca. :-)

  5. Rissi, I completely agree! The characters are fantastic, but the story it's self...phenomenal!

  6. TalesofWhimsy, Thanks! Can't go wrong with Waterfall or DMK!
