Tony Fry...the actual hero of Tales of the South Pacific by Mitchner...A Navy pilot

Stu from The Stand. Strong, silent, capable of kicking the Walking Dude's butt, sensitive enough for Frannie.
Feb 10, 2012 8:37 am
Darcy. I'm sure I don't have to say whence.
Feb 10, 2012 8:43 am
Adam Bede, from George Elliot's novel.
Feb 10, 2012 9:17 am
Faramir from the Lord of the Rings

Captain Fredrick Wentworth, once he loves a good woman his heart doesn't stray, even if his head tries to.

Hands down, it's Jamie Fraser from the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. *lovelorn sigh*

Louis de Pointe du Lac

Definitely Mr. Darcy!
Feb 10, 2012 4:34 pm
I don't know if he is the love of my life, but how about Mr. Knightly from Emma? Darcy is always in the spotlight.

Robert Kincald from The Bridge of Madison County, how romantic can it be to have your ashes shattered near the bridge where you met thelove of your life...
Feb 11, 2012 6:40 am
Lord Peter Wimsey! I wouldn't mind being Harriet Vane, either.
Feb 11, 2012 7:47 am
Sir Percy Blakeney (The Scarlet Pimpernel) - the perfect combination of guts, brains, and good taste!
Feb 11, 2012 10:05 am
Colonel Brandon. He's wise, devoted, sweet, and deeply romantic!
Feb 11, 2012 10:07 am
Sir Percy Blakeney, hands down!
Feb 11, 2012 12:37 pm
Mr. Knightley and Darcy!!
Feb 11, 2012 12:47 pm
Sam Gamgee is the "man" for me
Feb 11, 2012 3:47 pm
Tho, I read Pride & Prejudice again each year, Rhett Butler would have been the love of my life/the one I never forgot, if encountered in the flesh.
Feb 11, 2012 5:09 pm
Feb 11, 2012 7:01 pm
Aragorn from Return of the King and Rhett Butler. I'd hate to have to make that choice!
Feb 11, 2012 7:28 pm
It would be Westley from THE PRINCESS BRIDE, because "This is True Love, do you think it happens every day," and not even death could stop his love!
Feb 11, 2012 9:20 pm
I've adored Sydney Carton, from "Tale of Two Cities" since I was 12. If I can't have him, I'd take, Horatio Hornblower, or Faramir.
Feb 11, 2012 11:36 pm
Abolutely Sam Vimes of Terry Pratchett's Discworld. Smart, clever, strong and principled. Who could ask for more?
Feb 12, 2012 3:50 pm
Astrid Magnussen from "White Oleander," or Blue van Meer from "Special Topics in Calamity Physics."

Mr. John Thornton in Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South is my all time favourite.
Feb 13, 2012 12:27 am
Dave Robicheaux from the James Lee Burke series. A complex character full of surprises.
Feb 13, 2012 7:53 am
Michael Hosea, Redeeming Love...he loved patiently and unconditionally.
Feb 13, 2012 10:42 am
Feb 13, 2012 10:42 am
How about Heathcliff himself or Count László de Almásy.
Feb 13, 2012 5:06 pm
I would love Darcy or Mr. Knightly, but suspect I am more of a fit with Atticus Finch.
Feb 13, 2012 6:07 pm
Becky Sharp from Vanity Fair off the top of my head. She struck me as cunning and stunning.

The love of my life from a fictional character can not come close to the real LOVE of my life. If I had to choose a fictional character to be my life's love, it may well be Cinderella. But my actual real wife is the most perfect LOVE so never would I cheat myself from my perfect LOVE. My Madeline is the most perfect loving partner even when compared to fairytale beauties. She simply is TOPs!
I'm Blessed to keep my Madeline for ever. That includes even in my after life. Heaven can not be Heaven without my Madeline!

I don't know about love, but I would like to meet Janet Evanovich's character Ranger. He is so exciting and mysterious. But I agree with the comment above on Sam Vines. I could see myself with him. Actually, I think I'd rather be him. He leads an exciting life and is not home often enough to make a good husband!

Can I get a combination of Aragorn and Mr Darcy?
Feb 17, 2012 10:56 am
Not to criticize, but I've never understood why Austen fans have been swooning over Mr. Darcy for so long. I'd rather have Mr. Knightley any day! He's just as rich as Darcy, and much more sensitive, perceptive, gentlemanly, and pleasant. If I couldn't have Mr. Knightley, my inner child still wants Tom Sawyer to be her boyfriend, because a date that involves playing hooky to go exploring caves and eating freshly caught fish sounds like the best. Date. Ever.

I can't believe that no one else selected Jamie from Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" series. Tough, tender, manly and sensitive, confident and vulnerable--he's the ultimate man in my book.
Feb 18, 2012 12:41 am
I second Captain Wentworth from Persuasion!
Feb 18, 2012 10:02 am
No one mentioned Lucas Davenport, John Sandford's detective. I'll take all the above plus Lucas too!
Feb 13, 2013 8:42 am
Gilbert Blythe from the Anne of Green Gables series.
Feb 13, 2013 9:16 am
Jamie Fraser from the Outlander series.
