What fans love about Ryder De Danann

He is large and in charge from the first time you meet him he oozes I’m the boss. He has brands and gold eyes!! He may be rough around the edges but he also has a soft center. The way he feeds… Oh my dayum. 🙂 Ryder is Alpha male personified.” – Daria Briand

Ryder Dé Danann,I met him in Fighting Destiny by Amelia Hutchins. Ive had the pleasure of watching his character grow into a amazing man, yes he is aggressive and violent but not toward innocents. He has so much love and passion for his family. and the interaction with Synthia makes your heart melt. I just love his personality his maleness.” – Daria Briand

Okay, so you want to know why you should vote for Ryder..
Well.. lets just say that I could sit here for the next two hours telling you everything I love about him, but I don’t think you have the time.. Ryder is the perfect book boyfriend for so many reason.
He is sexy as hell, possessive, domineering, strong, self sacrificing, protective, and caring. He is the kind of guy that has you panting. He has dirty talking down to a science. He is so sexy you will have to change your panties because he has you so turned on. He is the guy that would risk his own happiness to save his world…. And that is just the tip of the iceberg.” – Anonymous

What can I tell you about Ryder .. He is the ultimate Alpha male,sexy as hell .. he can be funny and a bit snarky as well,he is a great guy who looks after his family and those he considers his friends, and he can be possessive of what he considers his (Syn)… it’s a remarkable series and so cannot wait to see the further adventures ahead in book #4.” –  Ruth Gutscher

“Everything about him (Ryder) and his beast is just down right yummy. He’s like CG (Christian Grey?) but with magic and brighter colors!” – Alicia

James Alexander Malcom MacKenzie Fraser is probably the most considerate and sensitive boyfriend/husband ever created.” -Marianne

“Jamie Fraser is a rare man, one that other men follow and look up to. He is kind and gentle. I started reading Outlander twenty years ago, I enjoy all of the books about Jamie and Claire and I’m looking forward to the TV series starting this summer.” – Sandi

“Jamie Fraser is a leader, respected by his clan and all those he meets. He’s a dedicated husband. He has a sense of humor, he’s loyal and honest. He’s big and strong and I would always feel safe with him. Plus, he wears a kilt! What’s not to love about that?” – Candice

“Jamie Fraser (Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon) I love, love my book boyfriend, Jamie Fraser because first of all he is super hot. He is also honorable, heroic, loyal, dependable, romantic, funny, brave, tender, loving, sweet, super sexy and faithful. Oh, and I don’t want to forget to add that he is a stubborn Scot. These are only a few of the reasons I love James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser. You should check him out for yourself. Read Outlander!!!!. You won’t regret it!!!!” – Gaby

    i think it doesn’t want jamie to win……won’t let me vote either….says i already did….but i haven’t… 🙁

    • Jill

      I voted for our king of men. I’ve read about both, and Jamie is still king. I think bc it’s more realistic,(time-traveling aside) and out of all my books, Jamie Fraser and Callum MacGregor are my top 2 men. It should have been a contest between them. But I still probably could have voted for Jamie. 🙂

  2. Maureen

    I’m having the same problem voting as well. I have voted in other vote offs on this site, but it’s not accepting my new poll vote.

    • It was brought to my attention that it’s possible people were cheating the poll somehow..so the poll was re-made with different settings and reset to prevent people from voting more than once. Sorry, but it had to be done. It’s possible this has been happening the entire tournament… I thought about re-doing the entire tournament..but it takes a lot of time to run this..so instead I’ve decided to re-do today’s poll… and hopefully the new poll will NOT ALLOW people to clear their cookies and vote more than once like they have been doing. Sorry.

  3. RondaT

    Just wondering why you decided to run this the day the newest Outlander book released? A LOT of fans are avoiding the internet today to try to prevent reading spoilers.

    • I haven’t read the Outlander series personally, so I really had no idea that a new book was releasing. Also I’ve been running this tournament for over a month..and we’re down to the final 2 boys..It was pretty much gonna happen this week whether Jamie Fraser made it to the championship or not.. Sorry and thank you!

  4. Micki

    Erin, I am so sorry that you suspect cheating in this book boyfriend contest. If cheating did take place I hope the guilty feel terrible. I HOPE no Outlander cheated! It appears Jamie may win so hopefully no cheating by JAMMF’s girls.

  5. Ellie

    Honestly, I think you over-reacted about the voting. You just have no idea how big the Outlander fandom is. It is world-wide. It is organized. And it is motivated to make good happen.

    Erin, it is time for you to get reading Outlander.

    • Micki

      Ellie, I have to agree you since I thought the same thing but did not want to be rude to Erin and any cheating evidence she may have found. Now that Jamies votes are as high as the rest of the contest maybe it will be discovered there was no cheeting at all. I hope so.

  6. Jane

    I don’t really think cheating could have been an issue since everyone had the same opportunities for voting as everyone else. No one group had any special advantage. No matter how the voting is set up, it all ultimately comes down to which book boyfriend has the highest number of dedicated fans.

  7. Sheila Martinez

    Ryder, The Fae Chronicles is my vote….. Hot dam do I love this series… I devoured three books in one weekend… After I read the first one I just could not stop… Ryder, is the ultimate bad-ass, Alpha, strong, witty, and just everything you would want in a mysterious dark and seductive hotness of a man.

    Ryder for sure!

    • Maureen

      I’ll have to check these out. I’ve been reading the Iron Druid Chronicles and have had fun with those too. They are also read-in-a-weekend books. Not so with the Outlander series, it is a real dedication to commit to these lovely long tomes, but a rich and rewarding read.

  8. Charm

    Perhaps once Jamie Fraser has won this poll fair and square, you’ll find the time to read the books for yourself, and find out what the fuss is all about!

  9. Susan

    I’m an Outlander, only voted once, and wouldn’t try to vote again. I believe the reason Jamie’s getting a large amount of votes is that there are millions and millions of Outlander fans around the world and many of us are very well connected so many are aware of this poll.

  10. Pat Rizzi

    And Jamie commands an impressive lead despite the re-vote. He continues to garner 70%-80% of the vote. Jamie Fraser is clearly a champion!!!

  11. Sandi

    I would bet the vote would be higher if so many people weren’t reading the new book in the Outlander series yet. I’m watching this because my book didn’t arrive yet.
