J is for...
Jareth. Prince Jareth. Or, in this case, Oliver Coleman. But he looks like Jareth to me.
In The Peasant Queen, Jareth is Krystal's love interest--but I didn't want to wait until my L post to post love interest, you know? Good thing I didn't name him Zerin or something, right?
Krystal's nearly halfway through her adventure before she meets Jareth under unusual circumstances, but she's immediately drawn to him. He's got appeal--tall, handsome, blonde, blue-eyed, and MAGIC. But that doesn't make him perfect. Which is okay. I mean, who wants Mr Perfect? Ugh.
Jareth hasn't had it easy. With Gregory for an uncle--an uncle who hates him, mind you--challenging is rather a minor word for it. What if your guardian wanted you dead?
In addition to wielding magic, Jareth has his own unique set of skills. For one, a wicked sword arm, though he is a bit rusty when Krystal first meets him. Good thing he's got a camp of rebels to help him warm up. After all, Prince Jareth has a kingdom to save.

This sounds intruging, a very good write and I was very taken with expertise it was written,
Have a good day.
Sounds interesting, thanks for sharing sweetie!
I love to find pictures to help me with my characters...nice choice. =)
Jareth sounds like one VERY cool dude!
quite hunky if you ask me. I need to work on my princes, get them a little more appealing to females and YA. Silly me never thought of using Prince Joachim as my J or Prince Brandan for my B. I know I can use Theodric as my T since he started this all.
He is juicy!
A hottie for sure!
Haha, I keep coming back for the hunky pictures!
Sounds like a good one...and he is a cutie for sure!
Thanks, everyone! He's definitely steamy, but when the bad guy looks like Hugh Jackman (see my G post lol) the good guy has to hold his own :)
Chris--I have learned a lot about what works in a hero by reading. I particularly like "Cinderedna," a children's book. There I learned what may happen when you get the "dream prince." It's taken a lot of work, but now Jareth rocks!
