My book boyfriend #9

My book boyfriend started over at The Unread Reader, its basically an opportunity for me to drool over my favourite fictional male characters and show you the swoon worthy scenes that I love the most.

This week I have picked an old favourite of mine Trenton Aloysius Kalamack (Trent) from Kim Harrison's Hollows series. I'm pretty sure he has been on other book boyfriend lists but that's because we all have excellent taste in book boyfriends.

Why I love Trent
1. He's an elf but a good looking one, he doesn't look like anything like Buddy the Elf
2. He starts off as a complete baddie, all evil and manipulative but has turned out to be a good guy  although granted he is still very manipulative and ok, still a little bit evil.
3. Consequently, I really want Trent and Rachel to finally "get it on"
4. He practises wild Elf magic and can sing his enemies to death. (how cool would that trick be?)
5. He has an "Elf porn" statue.

I think Alexander Skarsgard would be a great Trent, all blond and Nordic.

My eyes went to his. “You are a thief, a cheat, a murderer, and a not-nice man,” I said calmly. “I don’t like you.”
He shrugged, the motion making him look utterly harmless. “I’m not a thief,” he said. “And I don’t mind manipulating you into working for me when I need it.” He smiled, showing me perfect teeth. “I enjoy it, actually."

"No one will know?" I said, and blood pounded through me when he nodded.
"I won't tell anyone, " he said, a smile lifting his lips.
Why the hell not? I thought, and then I tilted my head and kissed him back. Giving in, I pressed into him, my hands feeling his outline, his stubble rough against mine our breaths found a rhythm both slow and building.
His tongue touched mine, and this time, I pushed forward, pulling him closer. My leg went around his, and I demanded more, running my hands through his hair, enjoying it's silky softness, enjoying the feel of his hands on my body, tingles arcing through me."

The ending in Pale Demon was so tantalising I can't wait for the next installment and I hope its got loads of Trent in it. Yum.


  1. I love Alexander Skargard he is so beautiful!
