Mr. Darcy has become synonymous with the romantic leading man. Even though he “lived” over two-hundred years ago, many traits that make Darcy an endearing romantic lead live on today’s romances. In this episode, I discuss Darcy’s traits and share a few modern romances that I feel have Darcy-esque leading men.

Books Mentioned On the Show

Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin

Edward Cullen from Twilight, Stephanie Myer

I just started reading Midnight Sun, Twilight told from Edward’s POV and so far, I find it more interesting than Twilight.

Roarke from In Death, JD Robb

Gabriel Emerson from Gabriel’s Inferno

(as depicted in Passionflix movies)

Joshua Templeton from The Hating Game by Sally Thorne


Wrath from Dark Lover, the Black Dagger Series by JR Ward
