Romance Novel Survey pt. 2

This is from Naomi. She posted part 2 and what kind of follower would I be if I didn't post accordingly? These questions are interesting because my favorite characters don't always come from my favorite book. I judge the question by itself.

1. Favorite heroine in a romance novel.
I'm going with Eve Dallas in the In Death series by J.D. Robb because she's tough and is strong in her believes and her relationships.

2. Favorite hero in a romance novel.
Anyone who knows me knows that it's Richard Lennox, earl of Downe from Dreaming by Jill Barnett. I mean, the man's voice is compared to hot chocolate. He is noble despite his complaining, protective despite his resistance, and he's a good friend even though he'd never admit it.

3. Favorite romance series (a series being more than 2 books that are related)
The Cheseapeake Bay series - Sea Swept, Rising Tides, Inner Harbor, and Chesapeake Blue by Nora Roberts.

4. Best location in a romance novel.
I'm going to say Silk and Secrets by Mary Jo Putney. When I think of different locations, I always think of this book. It's also one of my favorites.

5. Favorite secondary hero
Well, duh. Ted Mathison from Perfect by Judith McNaught

6. Favorite secondary heroine
You'd think I'd say Katherine (the second half of my secondary hero), but I like to pretend she doesn't exist. I'm going with Torie from Lady Be Good by Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

7. Favorite secondary storyline - or book you loved because of the secondary storyline.
Sentimental Journey has wonderful multiple storylines though Neil's story in Dreaming is adorable. Both by Jill Barnett.

8. Favorite romance sub genre.
It depends on the author. I read a bit of the vampires, dabble in witches. However, it's really by author not necessarily by subgenre. I just don't care for fairies or time travel.

9. Favorite paranormal/fantasy romance.
Right now, I'm going to say the Dark Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

10. Favorite historical romance.
Eeek. I don't read a lot of historicals anymore. I always say Morning Glory by LaVyrle Spencer though there are tons of others.

11. Favorite contemporary romance.
Sheesh. I have many, but today, it is Angel Falls by Kristin Hannah because I'm a big fan of Liam Campbell and one line makes me cry every time I read it.

12. Favorite romantic suspense/mystery.
I'm not a huge fan of the romantic suspense/mystery, but as I stated before, I do like the In Death series by J.D. Robb despite the fact that it's futuristic. The characters are what draws me to the series. Plus, some books have a high body count and gore which I enjoy.

We are almost book twins. But then, we knew that, right? :)
