Book List | 4 Swoony Heroes to Keep Away the Social Distancing Blues

In times of social distancing and never-ending virus-related news, a good book can be a perfect refuge, especially if it has a swoony hero, a strong heroine, and ends in a perfect happily-ever-after. ​ Because sharing is caring, I decided to share my top-four swoony heroes. I'm leaving Fitzwilliam Darcy, and Jamie Frasier out of the list, because they are 'hors concours'. ​ Use without moderation!
