Why I Love Alexander

No doubt about this one!  I have a delicious crush on Alexander Barrington from The Bronze Horseman.  Alexander is also in the other two books of Paullina Simons trilogy.  I love Simons description of the man, but better than that there's nothing the guy can't do.  The story is set in Russia during the seige of Leningrad.  Alexander who's an American fighting in the Soviet army (It's a long story.) does truly heroic things to save the woman he loves from first starvation and then prison.  He's also a military hero  whose men are lucky to have him to watch their backs. 

Try the book and see if you don't think the guy is drool-worthy.  At one time or another I think we've all needed an Alexander in our lives.

It frustrates me that I haven't read this book yet. Plus I have to meet Alexander which I think is an awesome name. Though I might be biased.
