My Book Boyfriend (32)

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.)

Clayton Danvers
Book: Bitten by Kelley Armstrong
Series: Women of the Otherworld

A werewolf who is the protector of the Alpha. He has a Ph.D. in anthropology and model-perfect good looks: slim hips, a broad chest and sculpted biceps. He has a Deep Southern drawl, close-cropped blond curls and blue eyes. He's rough around the edges and has a reputation that would frighten anyone with half a brain out of misbehaving, but underneath that hardened exterior he loves fully and with all his heart, and is a caring father and faithful husband.


Clay grinned. "You forget, darling. I am the local psychopath."

"Sparing you?" Clay gave a harsh laugh. "You know what I am, Elena. If I pretended otherwise, you'd accuse me of trying to deceive you. I don't want you to come back to me because you think I've changed. I want you to come back because you accept what I am. If I could change, don't you think I'd have done it for you by now? I want you back. Not for a night or a few weeks or even a couple of months. I want you back for good. I'm miserable when you're not here--"

"You're miserable because you don't have what you want. Not because you want me."

"Goddamn it!" Clay swung his fist out, knocking a brass penholder off the desk. "You won't listen! You won't listen and you won't see. You know I love you, that I want you. Damn it, Elena, if I just wanted a partner, any partner, do you think I'd have spent ten years trying to get you back? Why haven't I just given up and found someone else?"


  1. Awe. I love reading about men who are loyal fathers and husbands. Dr. Clay sounds amazing. That first quote made me laugh.

  2. I REALLY need to read this series! Loved the last quote because declarations like that are always my favorite parts of books!

  3. ADAM!!!! not Clay!

    I haven't started spellbound. I'm sad that its the second to last book. But excited for what I hope to be massive amounts of sexy adam time. and maybe some Lucus.

    Anywho. best werewolf in this series was Logan. Or Nick.

  4. I heart that first quote and feel that anyone who can admit to being the town psychopath is a perfect match for me! *grins maniacally* I'll have to pick up this series. Awesome quotes, Amy!

  5. Ohhh I love Clay, he's the perfect book boyfriend.

  6. OMIGOD How much do I love Clay? SO much! I was so glad we got to get a peek into him in Men of the Otherworld. As much as I love Savannah, I can't wait till Clay and Elena come back to the centerfold!

  7. I go back and forth with Clay. I mean, he BIT and TURNED Elena! But I love that he's odd and doesn't seem to quite understand humans or "normal" human interactions. Plus, the strong, silent type? Yes, please!

  8. What a great weekly meme. I have many "book boyfriends" but admit Clay is one of my faves!
