Saturday Smackdown Sexy Brothers

Does sexy run in families? On television and in novels, it certainly seems to. Numerous romantic series focus on families of great looking men with vibrant, desirable personalities. On television, we lust after them, often comparing the brothers and what makes them hawt and hawter. For today's smackdown, we are going to pick the sexiest brothers. You, of course, are welcome to nominate brothers not on this list. Here are some of the sexiest brothers I've watched on television or read about in books.

The Salvatore Brothers
Damon and Stefan Salvatore make dead look good. Damon is the wild child, cynical, dark and dangerous. Stefan is the kinder brother, the brooder who lets his past haunt him even as he tries to reconcile his vampiric nature to living as a human.

The Winchester Brothers
Raised as hunters by their dad, Dean and Sam Winchester battle darkness in others and in themselves. Dean knows no other life and acts as much a father figure to his baby brother as he does older brother. He is driven to continue the hunt and keep it going. Sam tried to run away from that life, to live a normal one, but the yellow-eyed demon came for his girlfriend and drove him back to the life on the road with his brother.

McDoctors on Grey's
Derek Shepherd and Mark Sloan are the best of friends and their relationship has certainly survived many knocks over the years, particularly the one involving Sloan sleeping with Addison. However, McDreamy and McSteamy need each other. They have different ways of approaching problems and life, but they balance each other well. Currently dating a pair of sisters, they may end up as brothers after all.

The Katallakis Brothers
Vane, Fang and Fury are three brothers from the same litter of Katagaria and Arcadian bloodlines. Powerful in their own rights, they are extremely devoted to the women in their lives. Vane is the oldest of the three and the most powerful. He is gifted as a Sentinel, which means messing with him, or his family is a huge mistake.

The Buchanan Brothers
Popular leading men in Julie Garwood's contemporary novels, the Buchanans are deeply involved in law enforcement. Nick and Alec are both in the FBI while Dylan is a police officer and Theo is a federal attorney. Their younger brothers have yet to make it into their own novels, but Michael is in Navy Seal training and that's sexy.

The Walker Brothers

Kevin, Tommy and Justin are strong brothers who have their own issues. Kevin's gay, Tommy's on the run from his mistakes and Justin's a struggling veteran of Iraq coping with his drug abuse in the past and medical school in his future. They're devoted to each other and even at their craziest; you know they'll be there when they're needed.

The Awesome Brothers
Chuck Bartowski and his brother in law Devon Woodcomb are close, particularly since Devon learned Chuck's secret. But even before Devon knew Chuck was a spy, he loved his wife's kid brother and looked out for him. Chuck nicknamed him "awesome" for all the awesome things the doctor does, but Devon is a good person and so is Chuck.

Who's your pick for sexy brother? Comment for a chance to win a copy of Nikki Duncan's Sounds to Die By which just so happens to have some sexy brothers in it of her own. I'll pick a winner next Saturday and be sure to drop by on February 21st when Nikki, herself, drops by for a visit to the Daily Dose.
