I am so tired of annoying h' s who ruin what could be a great book. The writing is wonderful, the plot is great, the H is smoking but the h SUCKS!

What h' s do you think ruined what could have been a great story?

Charlotte in Noble Destiny. Book 1 was a reasonable farce. Book 2 is going to get a 2-star review because of Charlotte (when I can bring myself to write it). God she sucks. Had to force my way through the book because I loathed her so much.

Tru in The Mighty Storm. Also, the h in Accidentally on Purpose The H's in both books were great, but I will NEVER reread either book. Nor will I read sequels, if there are any. Totally non-redemptive selfish annoying twits.

The h in the first book in the Son's of Destiny series. I think the book was called The Sword. Kelly is highly annoying.

The Sword (Sons of Destiny)

Shannon Stacey's Undeniably Yours could have been great, but the h was a major pain. The H was a great guy and I hated that he wound up with that childish, stubborn h. IRL I can't picture any guy putting up with her cr@p.

I' m rereading This Man (This Man Trilogy) and can' t believe I didn't see how annoying Ava is the first time I read it.

Blair Mallory of Linda Howard's To Die For: A Novel (Blair Mallory) & Drop Dead Gorgeous: A Novel (Blair Mallory). What a self centered, annoying, selfish, twit.

I agree with you, L. Burns about the hero in Undeniably Yours. The H deserved so much better. I even felt sorry for their kid. And I would also add ingratitude and selfishness to her list of flaws.

Another one that really rubbed me the wrong way was Talin in Nalini Singh's Mine to Possess (Psy-Changelings, Book 4).

I also think the heroine in The Next Best Thing (Hqn) was too self-centered and that was my biggest problem with that book.

Then there is Reese Gabriel's His Submissive, in which I found both the H and h horribly annoying and wanted to smack them both repeatedly.

Except for a few ones (Eva-Bared to You, Jaxxon-From Rags and the likes), I could easily say that almost all the heroines I've read are extremely annoying.

The most recent case though, is Elle from Wrong Bed, Right Guy, uggg!!!! I wanted to slap her. I forced myself to finish this book and ended up skiping her inner dialogues and the parts when she talked.

Except for Anya from Coyote's Mate all of the Lora Leigh's heroines are unbearable.

Emmaline from A Hunger Like No other almost made me quit Immortals After Dark. Except for Nix, I find the heroines of this series difficult to digest.

And a of course, Kiera from Thoughtless, you all know what I mean.

This list can go on and on...

Once a Princess by Johanna Lindsey. The only thing I remember about this book is that it could probably win the award for most irritating heroine and hero, I've come across. I don't remember who was more irritating, but then again between those two I think it was a toss up lol.

A Highlander Never Surrenders by Paula Quinn, the heroine was so annoying and the hero was just okay.

These are the ones I remember off the top of my head

About every book by Anne Hampson - they make dumb decisions, although the Hs are at fault too. Island of Kalamata is an exception to that and the h was strong though the story had other problems.

The hs from:
A High Price to Pay by Sara Craven
An unbreakable bond by Robyn Donald
Always Love by Emma Darcy
Talin from Mine to Possess by Nalini Singh

My reviews are up for each of them. Horrible hs with bad characterization.

Elizabeth Ann Davey - Don't you think a lot of Reese Gabriel's characters need smacking? Except they'd enjoy it way too much.

I agree about Talin from Mine to Possess

The worst one I have read recently was the annoying beotch in More than Meets the Ink - too bad because the hero was hot and nice but she was a judgemental slore that I hated so much I had to DNF because I didn't want him to end up with her

Sortia,
Thank you for the warning about "Wrong Bed, Right Guy" I had it on my wish list but hadn't purchased yet.

I agree about Kresley Cole; Great storyline, yummy heroes but the h's are mean girls :( Makes me feel they are underserving of the hero's love.

@BethB - *snicker* Maybe they need to be denied smacking. That was only the second book by her I've read and it may have been my last. I really don't like bickering couples. If that's her style, I'm done with her.

I think Diana Palmer's heroines are usually eye-rolling; they're usually very young, virginal, shy, had something traumatic happen to them when they were young, and always, always are in love with older men who treat them like dirt. I can't figure out why I've read so many of them! :-)

Morgan of Morgans Hunter by Cate Beauman really made me want to slap her. How does rushing into the the backwoods of Montana where her four friends were just recently executed while on assignment equate to strength? No ma'am. Thats called stupidity.

I loved Blair. She was a hoot. However, I couldn't stand Wyatt. It's fun how characters work differently for different readers.

Sortia says:
Doreen, she was like the fluffy-immature version of Tate from More than Meets the Ink. Very judgmental.

The difference IMO is that at least Elle Aycart's book is better written, the story is interesting and James the hero is fantastic.
