My Book Boyfriend: Tiago
Wednesday May 9, 2012 at 2:17 am |

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by Missie of The Unread Reader. It was created to give us all a chance to gush and swoon over those amazing boys we fall for in our books. If you’d like to participate then click the link and grab the image.

I adored Dragos of the Elder Races series by Thea Harrison and was therefore anxious to get into Tiago’s book Storm’s Heart, and I have to say it did not disappoint.  Tiago is ancient and formidable and has the power TO CALL THE STORMS!  Yes the power of thunder and lightening courses through his veins and I was enamored!  He used to be a God and after reading his story, I can understand how anyone could fall at his feet in worship!  Meet Tiago!


6′ 4 inches tall
250 lbs with barbed wire tattoos
Short Black hair
Wyr Sentinel
One of the Oldest Wyr still alive
Former God
Head of Dragos’ Army
Wyr form is a powerful Thunderbird
Can call the storms
Can harness the power of thunder and lightening


Brown skin, strong hawkish features and a sensually shaped mouth that more often than not looked like it could cut through concrete.  She had always thought he was a proud aloof man with the longest legs and the sexiest moves she had ever seen. pg22



     The monster’s blazing gaze fixed on her.  Tiago started toward her, and the avalanche came down.
The dark-haired Vampyre nearest Tiago moved to attack so fast he was a blur.  If Niniane had been human, she might have missed it.
Tiago’s enormous fist pistoned.  He punched the Vampyre, whose body shot through the air nd slammed through a wall.  Tiago kept moving forward.
The other two Vampyres attacked.  Tiago grabbed one.  He spun on his heel and threw the Vampyre into the stairwell.  With a wicked slash of fangs and talons, the third Vampyre leapt on him.  Crimson blood spurted from wounds that appeared on Tiago’s face and neck.
A blinding white-hot sear of flame flashed out of Tiago’s eyes.  Every light in the hall exploded as the lightening bolt struck the third Vampyre in the chest.  The Vampyre flew back fifteen feet and slid on the ground to lie motionless.  Thunder exploded in a rolling boom.  It sounded like a rocket launcher had been fired in the hall.  All the, Tiago continued to plow toward her, an unstoppable juggernaut. pg 98-99



     The thunderstorm rolled over Chicago in a matter of minutes.  It blanketed the city with heavy, sulfurous black clouds, a deluge of lashing rain and flashes of jagged lightening that split the sky, followed by rolling sonic booms that rattled skyscrapers.
The predator hurtled through the storm.  When his huge wings rose and hammered down, the sky roared in response and the earth shook.
He ignored his pursuer.  In flight, he was the one who was faster, his powerful body streamlined for slicing through the air.  He was also the creator of the storm.  It fulminated around him while hurricane-force winds buffeted the one who fought to follow.  The storm blew that one behind. pg. 160


My Tiago is being played by Maksim Chmerkovskiy, the gorgeous professional dancer from Dancing with the Stars.  Niniane thinks he looks like a meaner version of The Rock…but I couldn’t help but picture someone who looks more like Maks and I have no regrets as he’s quite a fine specimen of man.

    I have this book on my shelf and I’m thinking I need to dig it out soon! Love Maks as well! Great choice this week.

  2. He used to be a God? Holy Tiago! I’ll gladly worship at his feet with you, Jade. LOL

    I haven’t read this book yet, but I did read book one and I enjoyed it, only Dragos wasn’t my fav. But I really should give the other guys a go.

  3. LOL Jade!! it’s totally those God-types that get under our skin, right?? x) It’s so funny that you mention him controlling thunder and lightning because it’s actually thunderstorming here where I live right now — if I didn’t know any better, I’d think he took a trip to Southern Canada LOL! I’m usually not a fan of a guy with facial hair, but his intense stare makes up for it 😉

    I hope you’re having a fantastic Wednesday, Jade! May the force of May be with you! <3 :')
