Hi everyone!

I have been looking for some good books to read and haven't really had any good luck so far. I was just wondering if someone (or many someone's) can give me some suggestions.

What I'm really looking for in a book is a virgin heroine whose one and only is the hero in the story. I really like cowboy/farm books, historical is good, contemporary, and some paranormal. Some of my favorite themes are marriage of convenience, scarred hero/heroine, less than beautiful or over weight heroine finds sexy hero, also bad boy meets the virgin.

I really prefer sweet romances with moderate sex in them but I can also deal with the more graphic stuff to. I absolutely don't like anything with three somes or rape.

Thanks! And I can't wait to here your suggestions!

Most historicals have virgin heroines. In fact, it would probably be far more productive to list which historicals DON'T have virgin heroines.

For non-historicals, try this thread: http://www.amazon.com/forum/romance/ref=cm_cd_search_res_ti?_encoding=UTF8&cdForum=FxM42D5QN2YZ1D&cdThread=Tx1IS6M6O5C0DXK

Breathe by Kristen Ashley

Heroine is called fat by hero (he was mad at her then apologizes), she has been in love with him since he came into her town; he wanted her too. Very good book.

Historical, small town, Bad boy sexy hero, plain virgin heroine, two sex scenes (but really good ones!). She nurses him back to health after he collapses in her yard.

Nearly entire library of author Janet Chapman (especially many of the earlier works) feature Virginal Heroines. As a matter of fact her last book that came out this month has the heroine wanting to get rid of her virginity but the hero wouldn't do it no matter what. Courting Carolina (A Spellbound Falls Romance)

These feature (the earlier books) Scottish time travelers and the book has truly interesting concepts. Most of the books also feature some kind of magic and ALL the the hero and the heroine don't take sex casually but when they do have it-or get real close-be ready for a cold shower.

I am SO bummed. I just wrote a giant post for you... and only two titles came through. :/ I'm a really picky romance reader and the "nice girl" theme is always my favorite. These are some of my favorite authors and titles with virgin heroines -- strong emphasis on rich character/emotional development. To get you started, here are my top suggestions in my two fave categories:
CONTEMPORARY
Melanie George "To Die For", Jayne Rylon "Razor's Edge," Pamela Clare "Naked Edge," Beverly Barton "Fifth Victim," Laura Moore "In Her Eyes," Susan Mallery "Sweet Talk," Jenna Bayley Burke "Compromising Positions," Marie Force "Everyone Loves a Hero," Louisa Edwards "Just One Taste," a few Lora Leigh books are great with virgin heroines.. Jessica Bird "Man in a Million" (one of my all time faves) and "His Comfort and Joy," Lisa Marie Rice "Nightfire" and "Midnight Run"
HISTORICAL
All of Kate Noble's works, Carolyn Jewel "Stolen Love," "Lord Ruin" and "Indescribable", Courtney Milan's "Unlocked" and "Unraveled," Tessa Dare "Lady by Midnight" and "Goddess of the Hunt", Anne Gracie's "Bride by Mistake", "Accidental Wedding" and "To Catch a Bride", many many by Mary Balogh, many by Connie Brockway, Grace Burrowes' "Lady Sophie's Christmas Wish", "Lady Margaret's Secret Scandal" and "Lady Louisa's Christmas Knight"

LOSING IT by Cora Carmack. It wasn't bad, the heroine is definitely a virgin and it trying to lose it because it's bothering her.
