I can’t resist throwing in my own list of all time fave love interests in HG/COG games. xD
Aurion from Grand Academy For Future Villains 1 & 2
He is my sweet future Dark Lord and I will stand behind his throne as his obsessive yandere-ish Lieutenant and lover and secret fan, carefully ensuring his rise to power and destroying those who threaten him or try to take him from me. cackles maniacally I can’t not love this game. I get to be my own evil student
Manerkol from The Soul Stone War
I could not resist. His romance route calls to my inner villain, and its sexy and powerfully magnetic in the way they write it. Probably the best written of the romances in that game. I actually feel he’s more the cannon love interest to.
Rory from Tally Ho
He’s to darn adorable to not love. Even if he drives you nuts at times. Like a puppy.
Fritzie from Jolly Good: Cakes and Ale
Honestly, I didn’t know what to think of him at the start. But seeing as how I’d created a MC who was unconcerned about putting on social appearances and somewhat annoyed with society’s overbearing rules of propriety, they ended up clicking in personality perfectly. My MC actually enjoyed having someone honest and blunt with him, not putting on fake airs and tedious tired old rules. So it was a perfect match.
Gilberto from Jolly Good: Cakes and Ale
This romance surprised me actually. I thought Gilberto was secretly the infamous Guy Fox, but instead he ended up being a VERY passionate Insurance man. But you know what…it was totally ok and amazing and almost Indiana Jones-ish and that made the romance all the more entertaining and lovable. Totally exceeding my expectations there.
Felix, Nate, Mason, Adam (in that order) from Wayhaven Chronicles
Mind you, the love is almost equal for all four great characters. Felix really stole the show at the end of book 2, honestly. And Mason moved up from least liked in Book 2. (could not get a read on his character/personality in book 1) Since my MC is a dedicated detective who is friendly, nice, but also supper stubborn and prone to snark…he gets along great with Felix and Mason’s snarky side. Melts in Nates arms. And tends to have a love/hate/butt heads thing with Adam. xD I can’t wait for Book 3.
And finally a nod to the following…
Haze from Tally Ho
Toshie from Samurai of Hyuga
Ryu from Totem Force
Blaise from Creme De La Creme
Reylo, Michael, and Quaiel from The Shadow Society
Morkai/Straasa poly romance in The Soul Stone War
