My Book Boyfriend (5): Marcello Forelli
Wednesday February 22, 2012 at 12:05 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.

My Book Boyfriend this week is the brave and honorable Marcello Forelli from Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren.  Marcello is everything a Knight and soldier should be, and he’s very nice to look at.  He’s caring, and compassionate, and serious about the safety and protection of those he loves.  There is nothing not to love about Lord Marcello.

Lord Marcello Profile:


    Model’s physique and face
  Big chocolate-brown eyes
    Curly brown hair
    Square jaw and aristocratic nose
    Pronounced cheekbones
    Head soldier and Knight 
    Next in line for Lordship 
    Cares for older brother Fortino
    Best friends with Lucca Forelli

He put his hand on the side of my face and leaned down to look into my eyes.  “You are courgeous, Gabriella.  And clever.  And strong.  Remember that, in the thick of battle.  You can utilize all three.  And I will see to it that neither Lord Paratore nor Vannucci ever has the opportunity to harm either you or your sister.” pg.179


 “‘Tis not simply what I owe you as a man loyal to Siena.  ‘Tis what I owe you as a man Gabriella,” he said, looking intensely into my eyes, “you own my heart.  My life, and all I have in it.  You have captured me, m’lady, like no one else.  My hours are spent absorbed in thoughts of you, dreams of you.  I cannot imagine a life without you in it.  Might I dare believe that you would leave Normandy for good?  To remain here, with me?” pg. 221




My Marcello is being played by actor Ben Barnes of Chronicles of Narnia Fame.  The images actually kind of fit perfectly so cool beans.  It’s the first one were I think the description closely matches my pick, even the eyes!
