Top 10 fiction crushes

We all have one - that one fictional character that makes you swoon with delight. Here are our readers' favourites.

Alexandra Joubert: Harry potter! He's cute and has a magic wand... What more could you want? Or Aragorn from LOTR- handsome, rugged and loyal.

Marienne Botha: Doctor Zhivago.

Anneke Weber: My Fiction Crush is the Patrician of Ankh-Morpork, Lord Havelock Vetinari in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series

Michelle Ryan Edwards : My literary crushes are Carl Blomkvist (scruffy Swedish hack), Jackson Brodie (Kate Atkinson's hero) & Joey Berglund ('Freedom').

Joy-Anne Goodenough: my fiction crush is Mr Darcy from Pride & Prejudice

Melissa Hutchons: Fiction crush: Henry DeTamble from The Time Traveler's Wife

Heather Brentley Hübsch: Mandorallan from the Belgarath Series - always the perfect gentleman knight in shining armour.

Melanie Pieterkosky: Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby. She is sexy, adventurous, funny and I think she'd be into girls.

Charisse Nel: Tin Tin!! He has an adventurous spirit, loves animals and is generally quiet. The perfect combo!

And the winner is…
Christie Collier-Mann: Felipe in Eat, Pray, Love. I love my husband but if a sexy brazillian swept me off my feet. Mmmmn, a girl can daydream.
