My Book Boyfriend ~ Roarke

My Book Boyfriend is a Wednesday meme hosted by The Unread Reader, in which we drool over fictional male characters who make us swoon.  Please, come join our SqueeGirl infatuations and show us your favorite men of lit!

My boyfriend this week is so hot he only needs one name.  I've been dishing into J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts's In Death series on and off since the late Summer, and I can't get enough or keep my metaphorical hands off the enigmatic, the sophisticated, and just possibly, the reformed ROARKE.

Official Statistics
  • Date of Birth: October 6, 2024
  • Residence: 222 Central Park West
  • Roarke Industries Headquarters: 500 Fifth Avenue
  • Established Roarke Industries in 2042
Physical characteristics
  • Eve looks up his statistics in Naked in Death. They are as follows:
  • Height: 6 feet, 2 inches
  • Age: approximately 34 years old 
  • Weight: 173 pounds
  • Eye color: blue
  • Hair color: black

Roarke is from the back allies of Dublin.  He's a former thief and murderer and is a successful businessman.  Fiercely loyal to a select few, he loves Lt. Eve Dallas with everything he's got and helps humanize her to readers.  In a future world where everything is fake and manufactured, he prefers the old school finer things in life that have stood the test of time.

“I want to see you again." He stopped, took her face in his hands. "I need to see you again."

Her pulse jumped, as if it had nothing to do with the rest of her. "Roarke, what's going on here?"

"Lieutenant." He leaned forward, touched his lips to hers. "indications are we're having a romance.

-Naked In Death

My pick for Roarke is English model David Gandy.  Do a google image search for him - there are AMAZING pictures of him.  He's a naughty boy. . .
