Howdy Ani Rae/ AKA I Feel Loved (by Many),

New names & rainbows to you. Sorry to say most of these heroes are blending together for me.
And the last HR I read, had a smart heroine who did something stupid 3/4 into story which ruined
the HEA for me. Independence is cool- being sent to prison (awaiting trial) & not informing hero
- is not.

When does college start for you? Are you excited?

Lol. Yeah, that is pretty dumb on her part.

COllege starts on Monday. I'm equal parts excited and nervous. I've got all my books and notebooks and binders already, so now I just have to go to the classes. 0.0

Hi Ani Rae/ all names you choose,

How many credit hours are you taking? My 1st quarter in college I took 17- too many- I
went away to college. Needed to adjust to being on own ( I was shy & non-assertive)
& dealing with professors. And prof expectations.

Edited

Hi MoveiLover!

I'm taking 14 credit hours, but I'm not going away. I'm doing community college first to get my associates done.

Hi Ani Rae,

Your knight in shining armor/ pirate ( privateer?) etc must 'wear many hats.'

Somehow I doubt I'll find a hero in this town. -.-

My ideal fictional H would be a modern Mr Darcy, mysterious, brooding and brusque, but underneath, full of passion (and prejudice), generous to a fault and with a wry sense of humour. Anyone found such a character in recent titles, hopefully with a happy ending?

Hi Booksmith,

Not recent, not modern, but good.

A wonderful HR "The Courtship Dance." The hero broods, is low key witty, 'hard to read,'
generous, romantic, passionate. He defends the heroine verbally & with fisticuffs. And
hires heroine (his former love) & now friend to be a matchmaker for him, So they can
see each other more often. She's the ONLY woman he's interested in.

Booksmith says:
Thanks MovieLover. I'll give the sample Preview a try, though really looking for something contemporary with the style bordering on classical. Might try 'Mr Darcy' related keywords, or contemporary variations on 'Pride & Prejudice' in the Seach Box. Haven't tried 'Death comes to Pemberly' yet. Have you?

Hi Booksmith,

Have not tried "Death Comes to Pemberly." Have loaned out/ haven't read, " Mr Darcy's
Daughters." Think that was title. He's one of most complex heroes ever! And not just
b/c Colin Firth is complex/ sexy/ nailed the portrayal.

Alright everyone of this thread. I demand to know what happened here? Where did everyone go? So, hopefully I can jumpstart it once more.

What have ya'll been reading? Any great heroes? Heroines? What about really bad H's and h's? Ooh, how about villains?

I haven't read a romance in a while actually. Reading has been on the backburner since college started, but I picked up Most Likely to Die this morning and brought it with me to school. Not exactly a romance. Maybe I'm in need of one. Hm...

Any thoughts?

Never Seduce a Scot: The Montgomerys and Armstrongs is a fabulous book with a wonderful H and h. They are great together and you just love them both. The rest of the story and characters are just as great. This is a first in a new series of books that look sooooo good. The next book comes out in Feb 2013. Don't miss this great highlander book!!!!

Thanks D. Arnold. I'll have to check that one out!

I just started reading To Love a Dark Lord by Anne Stuart. Only read chapter one so far, but it's interesting. The heroine killed her uncle within the first two pages and the hero saved her from hanging by taking responsibility for it while he was drunk. :)

Hi Ani Rae/ Batgirl?/ College Lady in fact,

How is school? Met any 'hero material' yet? Sending out 'good vibes.'

Am reading "The Sinner" an HR by Margaret Mallory. Hero's alpha-ness leaps off the page. And stubborn
too. Four alpha guys- friends or cousins- first of 4 books. Be still my heart!! Heart to resist a Scottish
male! BTW, not all I read.

Hi there MovieLover,

School is school. Not overly exciting. As for 'hero material' sadly no. Lot's of creepy people though.

Like I said, I've only read the first chapter of To Love a Dark Lord, but I can tell the hero is going to be an alpha. And the heroine doesn't seem to be a petty little brat either. Yay!

I agree with you in regards to the Scottish males, lol. :)

Hi Ani Rae & all,

Oops! The Sinner is book 2 of 4 in series.

Hi Ani Rae/ Batgirl,

Sorry you've met some creepy people.

Agree that bratty heroines get on my nerves, some are TSTL.

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 24, 2012 12:37:25 PM PDT
Miss Ani Rae says:
Yeah...creepy people are no fun.

Well, this one didn't swoon after killing her uncle after he tried to rape her, so that's a good sign.
