My Book Boyfriend #22

Wednesday, June 29, 2011


My Book Boyfriend is hosted by the awesome blogger Missie at The Unread Reader.   What is My Book Boyfriend you might ask.  Well it is a weekly meme where we talk about a literary crush including stats, a picture of what you imagine he looks like and some quotes from him that make you swoon.  If you are interested in participating please check out Missie blog The Unread Reader.


This week's pick is 
Marcello 

He was the most handsome guy I'd ever seen, with a model's physique and face to match.  Big chocolate-brown eyes, square jaw, aristocratic nose, pronounced cheek bones.... a serious hottie.


Marcello is from fourteenth-century Italy.  He is a knight and the future lord of Castle Forelli.  Marcello also is a fierce fighter, loyal, kind and smart.


But then he had his big hands on my waist.  He bent down a little, getting ready to lift me to the saddle, just as I looked up at him.  Our lips were so close, I could feel the heat of his breath on my skin.
We froze.  Neither of us moving, simply staring at each other if the other was going to move first.
"You are," he whispered, "uncommonly stirring."

He closed his eyes then, as if he had to in order to break the bond between us, then lifted me to the saddle and stare at the ground as he guided my feet into the stirrups.

"Nay, this is most definitely unwise," he said, leaning in until my back was against the wall again.  He hovered, waiting, until I gave in, lifting my chin to offer him my lips.  He kissed me again, not touching me with his hands, just tilting his head one way and then the other.  He tasted of cinnamon and wood smoke.


He was strong with not an ounce of fat on him.  I could feel muscle beneath his tunic.  He smelled of wood fire and leather and earth and sweat.  All...... man.

What do you think of Marcello?  
Has anyone read River of Time series?

Thanks to Missie for hosting this meme.

Me thinks I need to run off to Italy to get me one of him. LOVE the pictures. Have you ever thought of getting a job as a casting director? You should!

Jenny said...

Have I mentioned how much I love this meme? Best thing ever:) You are gifted at picking models/actors to play fictional book boyfriends, that man is delicious. I want someone to call me "uncommonly stirring". *glares at hubs*

A.J. said...

I have not read these books yet, but I joined a tour for the first book so I will be reading it! :D Can't freakin' wait to meet this Marcello guy. He sounds so FIIINE! XD

Ashley @ Book Labyrinth said...

Oooer... after this post I think I love Marcello even more! ;) No, but really, Marcello is such a great character. Him and Gabi have some crazy chemistry going on, but there's such a great emotional relationship too.

Lisa said...

I'm loving the dark curly hair. Very sexy!

Savannah said...

OMG! YUMMMY! I totally squealed at my desk at work! You see what you did to me! LOL I love Marcello.

Rubita said...

YAY! I'm so excited! I ordered my copies of Waterfall and Cascade last week and I can't wait to get started. Clearly, I made the right choice. Yum.

A Canadian Girl said...

Wow, the guy you've picked really does resemble Marcello based on the quote describing him. Hope my copy of Cascade is delivered soon so I can start reading this series.

Melissa (i swim for oceans) said...

If only you had some pics of him dressed in historical clothing then it would be absolutely perfect.

Amberlinalou said...

Perfect!!!! So in-love with this series! Marcello is oh so Yummy!!!

Small Review said...

Thank goodness I was already sitting down when I read this post. Sa-woooon! I didn't think it was possible to make Marcello hotter, but Nic, you totally did it! What a perfect model choice.

Lisa Tawn Bergren said...

Heavens, woman...wish this model had been available when we were shooting the cover of TORRENT! He's umm, amazing. And thanks for raising interest in the River of Time Series! Love it! Saw one reader commented about CASCADE. Just to be clear, book 1 is WATERFALL, book 2 is CASCADE, and book 3, TORRENT, releases 9/1!

BrittanyGale said...

Exactly how I pictured him.

...yum

Amy & Charlie Lawson said...

That is perfect, just what I pictured but super hotter.
