More often, it's the hero who comforts and is strong for the heroine. One of the category romances I really like, "His Comfort and Joy" by Jessica Bird (J.R. Ward) has the opposite in a couple of scenes, the heroine comforting the hero, and it's really sweet. Any other recommendations where the hero goes to the heroine for comfort? (And not necessarily in a sexual way.)

Hmmm I guess the spider prince by Rebecca Goings (he lost his first wife and is still grieving... the h can be a bit too passive through), Here comes the groom by Karina Bliss (soldier dealing with the death of his platon) and Bride by Mistake by Anne Gracie (ex-soldier that had to go back to Spain and deal with his trauma...historical and one of my favorites).

Hope I helped :)

In Shanna by Kathleen Woodiweiss, Raurk is comforted by Shanna many times through course of book. One I remember is after a party, when she has ignored him, she feels horrible, he climbs in her window, and he begs her to comfort him and says, "Shanna love me, please, I need you to love me" is very emotional.

I love Marrying The Captain (Harlequin Historical) because the heroine takes care of him when he's ill. I know this has been done in numerous books, but it's especially sweet since he's been so used to being alone in the world...and on his ship. :-)
It's a great love story by Carla Kelly.

Just finished Elaine Levine's The Edge of Courage (Red Team). H has a terrible time with PTSD after traumatic events while serving in Afghanistan. Several instances where h provides comfort.

Always to Remember

The heroine is a young widow who goes to the hero (considered a traitor by the town for refusing to fight in the war) to force him to make a memorial for the men who fought and died during the war. He's given up on love and thinks no one will ever love him because everyone treats him like a monster for having refused to participate in the war-- she proves him otherwise and comforts him from the nightmares he has about the war and the time he spent in prison.
