Any romance books which have a passionate, crazy over the top dysfunctional intense romance where the hero is obsessive crazy in love. I want him to love the heroine with all of his being and I want the hero to be really intense and volatile (for example: having fits of rage, breaking things when he can't be with the heroine or being so angry with a guy flirting with the heroine that he punches the guy out) I want a more violently wild, crazy in love hero. (He must be in love, not just lust and he must be *vulnerable* to the heroine.)

Please no cheating, no hero loving another woman and no rape by anyone other than the hero, its bad enough when the hero does it...

Books like this:
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie Mcguire
The Silver Devil by Teresa Denys

Try Sweetbriar by Jude Deveraux. The H spends 90% of the romance in a snit over one thing or another, has a secret brother whom he thinks is a cousin who tries to sabotage his relationships with women.

Sweet as Sin by Inez Kelly. Hero is crazy jealous. Really intense. Both he and heroine hurt eachother. Their chemistry is pretty hot too. You wont stop reading till you are done.

Most of the Black Dagger Brotherhood novels by J.R. Ward have over-the-top heroes, because they are vampire warriors who bond to their mate, which makes them insanely possessive. In some of the books, the heroes are reluctant to bond for one reason or another, so they get even more angsty, fighting against their nature. In one of them, the heroine dies and the hero is about to commit suicide over it, so a deity steps in and brings the heroine back as a ghost; she's ghostly to everyone else but solid to the hero.

Yes, although it takes him a long time to realize it. It's time span is over about three years (and one baby) before they get it all straightened out. I liked the h because she wasn't a doormat and actually left the H for a while. It's not a long ead, but moves along briskly.

Try Homegirl! by Ryder Collins. You can't get more dysfunctional, wild or sexy.

Yes. He is very much in love with her, he's also possessive and has trust issues. He has issues from his childhood which influences his life in the present day. Its a good book. I own it on kindle, wanna borrow it?

Barbra it's against Amazon's rules to self promote. If you want to talk about your book you should go to Meet the authors section were it's ok to.

Lost Lady - Jude Deveraux

Exactly what you're asking for.

SPOILER: He's so crazy about her that he kidnaps her, takes her across the sea, rapes her, forces her to wed him and she doesnt find out its her own wedding until she's standing on the altar. Later when she runs away he loses 40lbs in his grief and ppl thought he was killing himself ....and yes, he shows jealousy. This guy was clearly obsessed.

readsalot- does the hero ever become sweet with the heroine in Lost Lady?

He is sweet from start to finish in his own fashion with her. I've have read both of those books you have listed and I am sure you will like this hero.

I'm surprised that no one has offered up Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades of Darker yet. Let's talk over the top crazy, intense, passionate, and very dysfunctional relationship. But what wonderful books.
