Swoon Worthy Saturday ~ Kristen Callihan's Ian Ranulf

Hosted by: Stay Bookish

Today's Swoon Worthy Saturday, which means it's time to choose a fictional male who has swept me off my feet (and made me sob into a pint of Ben & Jerry's ice-cream) this week! 

This Saturday's pick is none other than the gorgeous Ian Ranulf from author Kristen Calliahn's Moonglow (Darkest London #2). As much as I'd like to list every single one of Callihan's fictional men on here, Ian stood out the most for me this week.

Traits that make Ian undeniably swoon worthy are:
  • His Highland accent (which gets thicker when he's mad)
  • His roguish ways
  • His protectiveness (not overbearing - just the perfect amount)
  • His sense of humour
  • Did I mention he has a Highland accent?! 

Here are some examples of moments in Moonglow where Ian made me swoon:

#1: We are all imperfect creatures, love. I don't want perfect. I just want you.” 

#2: 'My mind is filled."

"With what?" she whispered.
"You. All the time. You." He sighed. "Daisy has taken up residence here." Yet it was to his heart he pressed her hand, to feel its pounding. "How to keep you safe. How to keep you out. How to keep... you."'

#3: You never made me weak," he said, giving her a little shake. "You make me strong." His big hands smoothed up her arms. "Just knowing you're in this world makes me want to live in it, makes me want to fight.

If that wasn't swoon-worthy enough for you & you need more, grab a copy of Moonglow today and become better acquainted with the smexy Ian Ranulf. (NB: The book does get a tad steamy at some points, so I do recommend it for readers 18+)
