I’m sorry, am I Marty McFly speeding back to the future in a Delorean?
I could have sworn we were just in the thick of a final March Hunkness matchup between the one and only Fitzwilliam Darcy and a very dreamy Outlander hunk, but my sources tell me that was 2017. So here we are again–only this year, it’s a very different Outlander hunk.
This tells me three things:
A) You guys have a thing for Pemberley
B) You guys have a thing for hot Scots
C) YOU GUYS HAVE AMAZING TASTE
Before we get into this final round of voting, I want to take a minute to honor the thirty-two hunks who fought valiantly along the way. These guys are all so honorable, I’m sure they’re applauding our finalists right now.
Well, maybe not Wickham. Or Willoughby. Or Heathcliff. Or maybe Rochester?
Okay, most of these guys are so honorable, I’m sure a good number of them are applauding our finalists right now. And let’s get to those finalists, shall we?
:::::putting on my best announcer voice:::::
In this corner, we’ve got a (once) single man in possession of good fortune. A curmudgeon, of sorts, but a good-hearted curmudgeon. He loves his sister, he loves his friends, and he loves being right. He’s got buckets of money and the most stately manor known to man. Whatever you do, do not get on his bad side, because his good opinion, once lost, is lost forever. Ladies and gents, give it up for your two-time semi-finalist Fitzwilliam Darcy!
And in this corner, we’ve got a slightly nerdy historian with a taste for whisky and a bigger taste for time travel. He’s one of the youngest professors at Oxford, and he’s not afraid to break out his guitar and play a few auld folk songs when he’s off the clock. He loves his dusty books, he loves to sing, and he loves his redheads. Grab a biscuit and raise a toast to the son of a preacher man–the adorkable Roger Wakefield!
The Final Matchup
Fitzwilliam Darcy vs. Roger Wakefield
Voting will close on Saturday, March 30, at 9:00 a.m. ET. You can vote as many times as you’d like, and remember, your man can’t win if you don’t play the game! Don’t forget: there are no losers here at Book Perfume. There are merely 33 runners-up. But only one literary dreamboat can be named our 2018 Champion of Hunks.
I can’t wait to see who it is!!!
