Please recommend any romances in which the hero is unable to "perform" with another woman because he has feelings for the heroine. He tries but does not succeed to get it "up" ;)

At first he doesn't understand why and then is surprised when he goes crazy for the heroine.

This can happen before or after meeting the heroine.

I hope there are some books like this out there.

Thank you.

Samson's Lovely Mortal: Scanguards Vampires by Tina Folsom is a good one, if you like vampires.

Regarding No Rest for the Wicked by Kresley Cole - loved that book including the H, Sebastian. Spoilers: He was so into the h that he did not even look at other women, even though they flirted with him after the h makes his heart start beating again. (Before that he hid after being made into a vampire. Even when he was human he was only with 1 woman 1 time he only slept with him b/c she lost a bet.) He is totally obsessed with the h. He was a vampire who the h, who hated vampires, came to kill. She had no emotions forever but he makes her feel again. A lot of sexual tension that leads to them hooking up. Description below.

A vampire soldier weary of life...

Centuries ago, Sebastian Wroth was turned into a vampire-a nightmare in his mind-against his will. Burdened with hatred and alone for ages, he sees little reason to live. Until an exquisite, fey creature comes to kill him, inadvertently saving him instead.

A Valkyrie assassin dispatched to destroy him...

When Kaderin the Cold Hearted lost her two beloved sisters to a vampire attack long ago, a benevolent force deadened her sorrow-accidentally extinguishing all of her emotions. Yet whenever she encounters Sebastian, her feelings-particularly lust-emerge multiplied. For the first time, she's unable to complete a kill.

Become competitors in a legendary hunt...

The prize of the month-long contest is powerful enough to change history, and Kaderin will do anything to win it for her sisters. Wanting only to win her, forever, Sebastian competes as well, taking every opportunity--as they travel to ancient tombs and through catacombs, seeking relics around the world--to use her new feelings to seduce her. But when forced to choose between the vampire she's falling for and reuniting her family, how can Kaderin live without either?

Been awhile but found 1 that fits here:

Fighting Love (Love to the Extreme) by Abby Niles

MMA-fighter H had been celibate for 4 months and thought his sudden and growing sexual attraction to his longtime best friend h was due to him not having gotten any. Tried to go on a date with a super-sultry woman & flirt back with the various women vying for his attention. No sexual response. At all. Being around h, esp when she's bending here or there, no Viagra needed ;)

Oh I totally second Fighting Love -- I enjoyed this one! There were some really entertaining parts and I really hope the author writes a book about Brody too.

LovestoRead--re: Fighting Love (Love to the Extreme)

Yeah. I was chuckling at her faking still being in pain to get him to stay. And her seduction! He was so scared of giving in to her because he knew it wasn't gonna take much. And she went for it. Loved that! I loved that he couldn't get it up with other women but was raring to go with only a few seconds of her presence. I think that's so sexy.

Captive of Sin

IIRC he actuall goes and visits a prostitute their wedding night, because he is so afraid of hurting h, and he ends up not being able to perform with the O/W.

Hajar's Hidden Legacy (Beasts of the Desert)

H was badly injured in an explosion/assassination attempt. In the years since, he has had little interest in women, figures that his scars have ruined his attractiveness anyway, and isn't sure that his injuries hadn't left him impotent if he WAS interested again.

The h convinces him pretty quickly that all the essential bits still are in working order.

Hajar's Hidden Legacy is a great book, and it is free.

I just read Hajar's Hidden Legacy and I LOVED it! It has a super sexy and romantic Beauty and the Beast theme.

Thank you so much for the recommendation. It's still free, too.
