1. Sebastian, Lord Dain - Lord of Scoundrels, Loretta Chase, 1995
D. “ (─) was heavy artillery, she thought. Nothing (─) or anyone else could have told her could have prepared her. Coal black hair and bold, black eyes and a great, conquering Caesar of a nose and a sullen sensuality of mouth – the face alone entitled him to direct lineage with Lucifer…. …(─) had told her (─) was a very large man. She had half expected a hulking gorilla. She had not been prepared for a stallion: big and splendidly proportioned – powerfully muscled, if what his snug trousers outlined was any indication. She should not have been looking there, even if it was only an instant’s glance, but a physique like that demanded one’s attention and drew it…everywhere”

2.Derek Craven - Dreaming of You, Lisa Kleypas, 1994
E. “It’s the truth,” he countered lazily, relaxing before the fire in his apartments, stretching his long legs. With his black hair and tanned face, and features that were neither chiseled nor coarse but somewhere in between, he was handsome…almost. His strong white teeth were slightly snaggled, giving him the appearance of a friendly lion when he smiled. Nearly irresistible, that smile, although it never reached his hard green eyes.”

3. Sebastian, Viscount St. Vincent - Devil in Winter, Lisa Kleypas, 2006
I. “ (─ ), was the complete opposite of her dream lover. There was nothing kind, sensitive, or remotely boyish about him. He was a predator who undoubtedly liked to toy with his prey before killing it. Staring at the empty chair where he had sat, (─ ) thought of how (─ ) had looked in the firelight. He was tall and lean, his body a perfect frame for elegantly simple clothes that provided a minimum of distraction from his tawny handsomeness. His hair, the antique gold of a medieval icon, was thick and slightly curly, with streaks of pale amber caught in the rich locks. His pale blue eyes glittered like rare diamonds from the necklace of an ancient empress. Beautiful eyes that showed no emotion when he smiled. The smile itself was enough to steal the breath from one’s body…the sensuous, cynical mouth, the flash of white teeth…Oh, (─ ) was a dazzling man. And well he knew it.”

4.Wulfric, Duke of Bewcastle - Slightly Dangerous, Mary Balogh, 2004
A. “He was tall and well-formed and dressed with consummate elegance in a coat of blue superfine over a waistcoat of embroidered gray with darker gray pantaloons and white-topped, shining Hessian boots. His neckcloth was tied neatly and expertly but without ostentation. His starched shirt points hugged his jaw just so. Both garments were sparkling white. He held a tall hat in one hand. His hair was dark and thick, expertly cut and neatly worn….

5.Fitzwilliam Darcy - Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austin, 1813
F. “Tall”

6.Anthony Bridgerton - The Viscount Who Loved Me, Julia Quinn, 2000
G. “The (─), (─) noted with irritation, was blindingly handsome. Dressed in stark black and white, he eschewed the garish colors that had become popular among the ton more foppish members of the ton. He was tall, stood straight and proud, and had thick chestnut hair that tended to fall forward over his brow.”

7. Christian Jervaulx -Flowers From the Storm, Laura Kinsale, 1992
B. “... the deep blue eyes intense, frozen cobalt rage: a caged and bound pirate, a brute at bay. He lowered his face a little looking at her from beneath his eyelashes. Wariness, anger, a deep and powerful passion – they were all in his face, in his stance...”

8.Jamie Fraser - Outlander, Diana Gabaldon, 1991
J. “The thick red-gold hair had been brushed to a smooth gleam that swept the collar of a fine lawn shirt…Well over six feet tall, broad in proportion, and striking of feature he was a far cry from the grubby horse-handler.”

9.Calvin Morrisey - Bet Me, Jennifer Crusie, 2004
H. “Dark eyes, strong cheekbones, classic chin, broad shoulders, chiseled everything, and all of it at ease as he stared out over the bar.”

10.Phineas Tucker - Welcome to Temptation, Jennifer Crusie, 2000
C. “He had broad shoulders, mirrored sunglasses, and no smile, and Sophie could hear ominous music on the soundtrack in her head as her heart started to pound. His fair hair shone in the late-afternoon sun, his profile was classic and beautiful, the sleeves of his tailored white shirt were rolled precisely to his elbows, and his khaki slacks were immaculate and pressed. He looked like every glossy frat boy in every nerd movie ever made, like every popular town boy who’d ever looked right through her in high school, like every rotten rich kid who’d ever belonged where she hadn’t.”

1.Jessica Trent
- Lord of Scoundrels, Loretta Chase, 1995
C. “ Under the monstrous bonnet was a perfect oval of porcelain white, flawless countenance. Thick sooty lashes framed silver-grey eyes with an upward slant that neatly harmonized with the slant of her high cheekbones. Her nose was straight and delicately slender, her mouth soft and pink and just a fraction overfull. She was not classic English perfection, but she was some sort of perfection and, being neither blind nor ignorant, (─) recognized quality when he saw it.”

2.Sara Fielding - Dreaming of You, Lisa Kleypas, 1994
A. …”he stared at her uncovered face. This was what she had kept hidden beneath the old-maid disguise…Pale, luminous skin, a mouth shaped with surprising lushness, a pert nose, marked at the delicate bridge where the edge of her spectacles had pressed. Angel-blue eyes, pure and beguiling, surmounted by dark winged brows. She was beautiful. He could have devoured her in a few bites, like a fragrant red apple.”

3.Evangeline Jenner - Devil in Winter, Lisa Kleypas, 2006
G. “He found it odd that he had never noticed her, when there was a great deal worth noticing. Her hair, the brightest shade of red he had ever seen, seemed to feed on the firelight glowing with incandescent heat. The slender wings of her brows and the heavy fringe of her lashes were a darker shade of auburn, while her skin was that of a true redhead, fair and a bit freckled on the nose and cheeks. … She had unfashionably full lips that were colored a natural rose, and large, round blue eyes…pretty but emotionless eyes, like those of a wax doll.”

4.Christine Derrick - Slightly Dangerous, Mary Balogh, 2004
H. “She was dressed far less finely than any of the other ladies. Indeed, when he had first set eyes - or eye - upon her, he had mistaken her for a servant. Her muslin dress was decent enough but not by any means in the first stare of fashion. Neither was she particularly young. She was well into her twenties, at a guess. She had a pretty, wide-eyed, rather round face, which – it had been impossible not to notice – was sun-bronzed. And, if that were not bad enough, there was a dusting of freckles across her nose. Her hair was dark and short and curly .”

5.Elizabeth Bennet - Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austin, 1813
I. “I have been meditating on the very great pleasure which a pair of fine eyes in the face of a pretty woman can bestow.”

6.Katherine Sheffield - The Viscount Who Loved Me, Julia Quinn, 2000
F. “She was not at all what he’d expected…. She was certainly no ape-leading amazon; it was only when compared to Edwina, who barely touched five feet, that she would appear so tall. In fact, Miss (─) was quite pleasant-looking with thick, medium brown hair and dark eyes. Her skin pale, her lips pink, and she held herself with an air of confidence he could not help but find attractive.”

7.Maddy Timms - Flowers From the Storm, Laura Kinsale, 1992
B. “Her hair is tarnished gold where the candlelight touches it, and where it doesn’t …richer – more like the light through dark ale as you pour it. She has it braided and coiled around her head. I believe she thinks that it’s a plain style, but she doesn’t realize the effect. It shows the curve of her neck and her throat, and makes a man think of taking it down and letting it spread out over his hands.”

8.Claire Randall - Outlander, Diana Gabaldon, 1991
E. “You look wonderful by candlelight, you know. Your eyes are like sherry in crystal, and your skin glows like ivory. A candlelight witch, you are. Perhaps I should disconnect the lamps permanently.”

9. Minerva Dobbs - Bet Me, Jennifer Crusie, 2004
D. "She was fun to look at when she wasn’t scowling: smooth milky skin, wide-set dark eyes, a blob of a nose and that lush, soft, full, rosy mouth…"

10.Sophie Dempsey - Welcome to Temptation, Jennifer Crusie, 2000
J. “…concentrating on the older sister’s shortcomings so he could forget about her mouth. She’d had the potential to be as attractive as Amy - all that dark curly hair knotted on the top of her head, and a good enough ivory-pale face with those big brown eyes – but the tension had radiated off her so hard that it had been exhausting just standing next to her.”
