Most Romantic Hero?

Who is your favorite romantic hero from a novel? I've always liked Mr. Darcy (who doesn't, right?), but I'm also rather fond of Wrath and Phury from J.R. Ward's novels.

Mills & Boon, part of Harlequin Enterprises, ran a survey of their British readers. You can see the coverage of the survey from the Telegraph here.

The title of the article is Romantic Heroes: Here's to You, Mr. Rochester. Yup, Rochester won. Interesting. I think Harlequin needs to run an American survey because I don't think he would win here. What do you think?

Here's the top five (and, yes, I admit that I don't even know who number two is!!):

1. Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

2. Richard Sharpe of the Sharpe series by Richard Cornwell

3. Fitzwilliam Darcy from Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

4. Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

5. Rhett Butler from Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

Rhett Butler, hands down. Mr. Darcy is a close second.

Darcy first and Rhett Butler anytime. I don't find Rochester romantic.
