"I am who I am too, but since I can't stop the labels from being applied I choose to pick the one less insulting and to me Plus Size is an accepted and beautiful term used to describe women who are of a large size."

Yet you had no problem labeling an overweight heroine a "real woman" in comparison to a woman who's a size 4.

If you have accepted that you are who you are, what's the point in denigrating thin women for their bodies?

Thanks, I will check it out. I am okay with self promotion in this discussion. It is rare to find books with an h that fits the description I look for.

I downloaded it this morning the reviews read so very good. I am a reviewer but rarely if ever rely on them when I buy a book because reviews are really personal perceptions in all honesty.
But the subject matter of the story is what comes across in these reviews and why I want to read it.
Thank you all and now I'm off to read it! *S*

I so believe in self promotion. With authors self publishing there has to be self promoting to get their books out there so reader can find them.

"The Grand Sophy" by Georgette Heyer is a Regency (no explicit sex) with a tall, buxom, full-figured heroine.

"Seize the Fire" by Laura Kinsale is a Regency/Victorian with a heroine who is anywhere from plump to fat (she gains and loses weight during the course of the story.

"The Long Masquerade" by Madeleine Brent has a secondary character who is overweight. Victorian.

I absolutely loved "Doctor's Delight". A beautiful story that definitely pulls at the heart, and keeps the reader pulled into the story. I just plain loved it. I am so happy that your writing about Mike, and I can't wait to read it. I love emotional stories that gives a reader an emotional investment and connection with the characters. I simply can't say enough about how wonderful the story the book was....*S*

@A.M. Verdenius
Just finished Doctor's Delight and it was a delight. Really enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to Mike's story.

I'm trolling through your backlist now as I love sci fi romance too.

Great work. Glad you suggested your book. As a plus sized girl myself, it's hard to find a good plus book that doesn't dwell too much on the weight but has enough angst about it to make the story believable.

It's hard to find a good book with a plus sized h. Most of the ones I find are weird kinky erotica with whips and chains and corsets and that just isn't my scene. I like my erotica to actually be respectful of women.

Evangeline Anderson does a lot of plus sized erotica but there is usually some bdsm elements if you like that.

Maddy Barone has a few short and sexy novels (really novellas) that are good.

Galaxy Fever by Piper Leigh. Short, sweet and very hot, sci fi erotica with a larger lady h.

Gabriel Hawk's Lady by Beverly Barton. An adventure romance with a larger h. But the H is a jerk to her and calls her fat, in trying to hurt her so she won't go with him on their trip into a war zone in South America. He puts her in boot camp and makes her lose weight before he will take her with him, at the end she is still curvy.

Thanks for the info.
I didn't know there were any plus size heroines.
If you like cats with courage I just read:The Cats of Catarau series by Susan Cox:SHARDAI, AKASHA,MAKITA

Hi all... thanks for posting all of these recommendations. If anyone else is interested, I've added them all, as well as a few personal favorites, to a new wish list that you can see here (so all the titles/links are easily clickable).

HI ladies, I am new. As an Author I just wanted to say I feel it is important that we represent the "real" women as our heroines. Who isn't tired of the "tall, lithe, runway model" cookie cutter mold for the heroines...I know I am! The everyday woman on the street sure is. I have enough insecurities of my own without the message of only the "pretty, thin girl get her man".

Thanks so much kt_simms, I found a few in there I haven't heard of before, but just fyi courting miss hattie doesn't have a plus sized h, hattie is supposed to be very ugly and is known as horse faced hattie but she isn't over weight.
