My Book Boyfriend (41)

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.)

Zachary Moore
Book: Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready
Series: Shade

Last to be born before the Shift, his presence can ward off ghosts, he's a sensitive, kilt-wearing Scott. Dark hair and broad shoulders with a Scottish accent thick enough to make your toes curl. Green eyes and dimples, he has an athletic build from all the soccer he plays. He's also a bit of a science geek, with a bold personality and won't take crap from anyone.


Zachary started to answer, then brushed his lips with the side of his finger. "No, it's stupid."
I'd never seen someone use so much of their mouth for that word. "What's stupid, besides your mind games?"
"Okay, but if I start, you let me finish." He spoke to the radio instead of meeting my gaze. "The pieces of you are complete shite today, the bloated eyelids and splotchy skin and your hair all"--he waved his hand--"you know, and all together you should look pure hackit, but somehow you're more bonnie than ever."
I rewound his sentence in my head. Zachary's eyes flicked up to meet mine, and I must've seemed pissed, because he said, "Sorry," and reached for the car door handle.
"Wait. What's 'hackit'? What's that mean?"
"Ugly. But 'bonnie' means--"
"I know what 'bonnie' means."
Zachary held up a hand. "I'm no' flirting with you, not with your boyfriend just passing. I'm only making an observation."

Zachary unzipped his dark brown leather jacket. "Here take this."
"No, you'll freeze."
"Don't insult my rugged heritage." He shook out the coat and scooted over to me. "I'd be a real walloper if I let you shiver."


  1. ha! The man responsible for Team Kilt! I don't think I knew about the science geek bit which makes me wonder what else I don't know about him. Must find out soon!

  2. I have this on my wishlist! Zachary sounds so fun! I love the idea of a Scottish science geek...yummy kilts!
