My Book Boyfriend is an awesome weekly meme hosted by Missie at The Unread Reader all about fictional boys who make us swoon. This week I am swooning over:
In Death series by JD Robb
- Shoulder-length black hair, blue eyes, pale skin
- Irish accent

- Wasn't always involved in the legal side of business.
- Genius at business, technology, and finances.
- Known only by one name, Roarke.
- Mysterious past that is slowly revealed throughout the series.
"I want to see you again." He stopped, took her face in his hands. "I need to see you again."
Her pulse jumped, as if it had nothing to do with the rest of her. "Roarke, what's going on here?"
"I love you," she murmured, "I love you so much, I'm stupid about it."
With a sigh, she settled down, closed her eyes, and willed her mind to empty.
Beside her, Roarke smiled into the dark. He never slept first. --Ceremony in Death
"Do you remember the first time we made love?" He touched his lips to hers as he said it. "We rode up in the elevator like this and couldn't keep our hands off each other, couldn't get to each other quick enough. I was mad for you. I wanted you more than I wanted to keep breathing. I still do." He deepened the kiss as the elevator doors opened. "Its never going to change." --Big Jack

About Naked in Death (Book One):
It is the year 2058 and technology now completely rules the world. But, New York City Detective Eve Dallas knows that the irresistible impulses of the human heart are still ruled by just one thing--passion.
When a senator's daughter is killed, the secret life of prostitution she'd been leading is revealed. The high-profile case takes Lt. Dallas into the rarefied circles of Washington politics and society. Further complicating matters is Eve's growing attraction to Roarke, one of the wealthiest and most influential men on the planet, devilishly handsome...and the leading suspect in the investigation.
