We decided that Thursday needed a little pizazz and stumbled on this meme. So we took ourselves over to The Unread Reader to see what it was all about and join the fun. The Unread Reader features this meme on Wednesdays, but we figured moving our participation to Thursday wouldn't hurt anything. We'd love it if you'd leave a comment if you participate in this so we can check out your book boyfriends as well.
This week, my book boyfriend is: Phury, Son of Aghony

Quotes about Phury:
*"With his fantastic mane of multicolored hair, Phury should have been in
's league with the ladies, but he'd stuck solid to his vow of celibacy." Hollywood
*"Phury's style and masculine elegance were down to the bone. He was lethal, there was no doubt about it, but he had a metrosexual vibe to him. The refined-gentleman impression wasn't just a result of his sharp duds, like the black cashmere sweater and fine twill slacks he was sporting right now. The brother had the most amazing head of hair Butch had ever seen. The long, thick waves of blond and red, ,and brown were outrageously beautiful, even for a woman. And his odd yellow eyes, that shone bright as gold in the sunshine, added to his whole deal."
Why I love Phury: Oh dearest Scribe Virgin. Why don’t I love him is more the question. Intensely loyal, unfailingly kind and ruthlessly polite (speaks to the Southerner in me, I guess.), and of course, a total stunner in the looks department. After his transition, he spends nearly a century looking for his kidnapped twin, and shoots the bottom half of his leg to aid in their escape.
He spends the next few centuries nurturing, as best he can, and sacrificing his own personal life to his damaged twin. He also takes one for the team when V is tapped to be the Primeale of teh Race. All this, plus going out nightly to protect his race from the Lessening Society who preys on his Race. He is a tarnished hero, and I just adore him. And yes, that is drool on my chin.
