My Book Boyfriend (10)

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by Missie of The Unread Reader, in which we swoon over boys in books!
(I--as in me, Amy--don't like to use commercial photos, I like to use the authors' descriptions and my imagination.)

Shawn Gallagher
Book: Tears of the Moon by Nora Roberts
Series: Gallaghers of Ardmore Trilogy

A real Irishman with fine black hair that looks just a bit shabby, and quiet dreamy blue eyes--unless he was roused by something, and then they can fire hot and cold in equal measure. His full, firm mouth is meant for long kisses and soft words. A long, lanky body, wonderfully wide-palmed hands with fingers of an artist, a voice like whiskey warmed by a turf fire. A talented musician, with a romantic heart that could reduce any woman into a weak-kneed puddle. He is also a gifted chef and part owner of his family's pub.


When I'm alone in the night, and the moon sheds its tears,

I know my world would come right if only you were here.

Without you, my heart is empty of all but the memories it keeps.

You, only you, stay inside me in the night while the moon weeps.

"Maybe that's a part of it." He framed her face, then combed his fingers through her hair, drawing it back and away. "I know this face," he said quietly, "as well as I know my own. I can conjure it up in my mind the way it runs from cheek to jaw." He skimmed his lips along the sweep. "The shape and color of the eyes, and the moods of them."


  1. I haven't read anything by Nora Roberts yet, but she gets such rave reviews.

  2. Awwwwe! Shawn sounds like a poet. And a whiskey warmed voice definitely sounds sexy!

  3. LOVED that series!! Nora Roberts writes such great books!! I think I read that trilogy in two days, it was so good I just had to see what happened next!! (Of course I had to wait till all the books were out before I could read them lol)

  4. Oh sigh - I adore Shawn! I featured Aidan as my very first Book Boyfriend a few weeks ago, but Shawn is a very close second for me. I love the poetic dreamer. And when he corners Brenna in the nursery at Jude and Aidan's...*thud*

    I'm a new follower. :)
