2nd Annual March Hunkness: The Thrilling Thirty-four

Get your voting fingers ready, friends…

The 2nd annual March Hunkness competition is here!

Last year, after six rounds of competition, your votes crowned Outlander‘s Jamie Fraser as our very first Book Perfume Champion of Hunks. Like the true warrior that he is, Jamie has carried out his duties beautifully over the past twelve months, being hunky as ever whenever duty calls. Now it’s time for JAMMF the Champ to hand over that trophy as we ring in a new tournament with even more literary heroes and heartbreakers to choose from!

Here’s how this works: Every Literary Hunk of the Month we’ve ever celebrated on this site has been randomly paired off in a handsome-head-to-handsome-head matchup. All you have to do is vote for the literary man candy you want to see move on to the next round! Some are classic crushables, some are modern-day dreamboats, some names may be more familiar than others, and some are downright devilish. It’s up to you to decide which one will earn the bragging rights over all of his competitors for the next year!

So much more fun than a March Madness bracket, wouldn’t you say?

Voting for round one closes on Tuesday, March 13 at 6:00 p.m. ET, and you can vote as many times as you’d like. Last year we had some tight races and some major blowouts. What does 2018 have in store?
