Jules (Seed 15)

The HOTtastic Jules from Amy Plum's Die for Me is being rep'd by Brooke from You can also reach her blog from the button on the side of this page. You can also follow Brooke (and please do) on twitter @BrookeWorm33. You can also find out more about Die for Me and Jules in our review here.


Jules from Amy Plum's debut novel, DIE FOR ME, is funny, flirty AND compassionate! He isn't afraid of a little competition and would be willing to pull out all the stops to win you over! It wouldn't be hard either, with his adorable boyish charm & cocky flirtatious smile he will make you swoon! He's enthusiastic about everything he does & is sure to send you into a fit of girlish giggles with his hilarious one liners & highly animated hand gestures! Don't think he's all wisecracks though, Jules also has a serious side. He's very caring and will always be there to listen to you. When your miserable, he'll be the first one to dish out complements & hugs, you can count on Jules!


Jules oozes charisma & charm, he & his friends are compared to Armani underwear models because they are just THAT gorgeous. Jules has a lean build that he (unfortunately) covers with messy paint smudged clothes. He has unkempt curly brown hair, bristly razor stubble (GAH! HOT!), and large rough hands that can do wonders with a paintbrush (and other stuff *wink, wink*)


Jules is an outrageously talented artist and has a studio filled with paintings from floor to ceiling! (Ladies he does nude portraits too! :P) Make sure you look your best on a date with him because he secretly likes to sketch your portrait on restaurant table mats!

Not only is he a sensitive artist he also has a wicked way with weapons. (and i'm not talking about paintbrushes!) Jules used to be in the army so he has a tough side. During a battle you can find him strapped with a crossbow, arrows, daggers AND swords, if that's not talent i don't know what is!

Did i mention he's also an extreme flirt? He's one of those boys who can pull off a pick up line with out being sleazy about it! (a true talent!) Oh yes, and he is also bilingual so expect to get hit on in both English AND French!! *melts*

Special Attributes:

Jules is a Revenant or "one who comes back" which means he has to die over & over again, but for good reason! A Revenant's main purpose is to die in the place of someone else, so Jules whole existence is dedicated to dying in order to save someone else's life! *dies* <--- oh WAIT! Jules wouldn't let that happen! (even if i was dying because of how amazing this HE is!)

Jules also has the ability to go "volant" which means while he is "dormant" (or recharging after dying) his mind can leave his body. When he does this he acquires a sort of sixth sense that allows him sense if something bad is going to happen & he's then able to tell another Revenant to save the person in danger. Pretty cool right!?

What makes your guy better than his competitor?

Unlike some guys *cough, cough, Shane, cough* Jules is even-tempered and laid back. Instead of punching a wall or someone's face, Jules will try to have a casual conversation to work things out! Both boys might be rich, but you know what they say, "Location, location, location!" and Jules is from THE city of romance, Paris! And you DO know how the French say hello right?! Kissies!! And instead of the usual quick air-kisses, Jules will take his time and tenderly kiss both of your cheeks! *SWOON OVERLOAD!*

Anything else you'd like to add?

Pick Jules cuz he Rules!! :P

Shane (Seed 18)

For our other sexy vamp of the day, coming in at the 18th seed we have Shane Collins from the Morganville Vampires Series by Rachel Caine. He's being represented by Kia. Go check her out on twitter: @kia_nolan & on her blog: For more info on the Morganville Vampire Series you can go here.


Personality is possibly Shane Collins best quality he is fiercely loyal to his friends. He is constantly the underdog and has a truly tragic past but despite this he is loving,sweet and hilarious. he's just a lovely guy that's been though allot.


Shane's got the yummy I-don't-care-how-I-look thing he is your classical teenage boy but hotter. he has deep brown eyes and hair to mach. Since he's a fictional character he is different to everyone so i'll leave it at that and let you imagine Shane in all his hotness.


Can I count a killer personalty and good looks? Aside from that he can cook amazing Chili and kick zombie butt (all be it on Xbox). He can also hold his own against Vampire's which is a must for a Morganville resident.

Special Attributes:

He's kind, caring, funny, loyal and so much more!

What makes your guy better than his competitor?

Jules is great but with Shane you get great Chili making skills ;)

Anything else you'd like to add?
Don't forget Shane is 18th! He really needs your votes and has really earned them. please vote for the underdog :)
