I am looking for some more books that host a plus sized lead character. I have read Bet Me about a zillion times and have found very few others that I can fall in love with. Does anyone have some suggestions?

Try Courting Miss Hattie by Pamela Morsi (I believe the heroine of Roundabout, also by Morsi, is rather plump).

The Corset Diaries is a cute read with a heroine who wears a size 12 or 14, if I recall.

Technically it's considered chick lit but Meg Cabot's series starting with Size 12 Is Not Fat: A Heather Wells Mystery is excellent, and involves a plus sized h. The HEA doesn't really happen until book 3, though.

I highly recommend Take Me by Bella Andre.

If you can handle spanking in your romances, Second Chances by Carolyn Faulkner is a favorite of mine. Heroine is plus-sized (considers herself fat); hero is a hunky firefighter who makes it very clear that he thinks she is the hottest woman on the planet.

Jamie Garton, I'm a bit of a computer idiot so bear with me. Google All About Romance Reviews. Then click on New Reviews, then click on Readers Choice and last but not least click Special Title Listing. All sorts of interesting areas to check into. Hope this works for you.

Thanks everyone! I just finished this book, Good in Bed, and I loved it!

Good in Bed is a DELIGHTFUL book--but do not read the sequel!!

Banana Boat! I don't know how I didn't know about this site all this time! Thanks for the info, I am going to be in heaven...and my kindle is going to be very busy uploading my purchases! Thanks a million!

Jamie, I learned about this site from one of these threads quite awhile ago, so I'm passing it forward. My only complaint with this site is that its not updated or added to as frequently as I'd like. I actually went into the listings that interested me and printed the lists so that I could visit Amazon and do my research, so to speak. My Kindle has been busy ever since I discovered this site. Enjoy!

Thanks Banana Boat! I just checked that site out! Awesome!

I just remembered another site very similar. Google RT Book Reviews, click on the home page, click on Authors & Books, go to the middle row, 4th down is Theme Spotlight Index, click on it. I hope this makes sense, clear as mud.

It was clear enough that my Amazon credit card is not thankful! lol
I don't spend much time in the Discussion rooms and rarely post a new discussion when I do, so I thank you for making it easy and giving me tons of leads to find some amazing summer reading and into winter at this rate. Lol

You are most welcome! Our credit cards can over heat together. :)

I LOVE plus size heroines. Im a big girl and sometimes just need to be reminded big girls get the guy too :) Last year I came across Pat Ballard, all of her heroines are plus sized.. Ive read them all and recommend all of them but my favorites are Nobody's Perfect and A Worthy Heir.. I found The Giving Season-- I really loved this book but the h always harping on her weight did grate on my nerves a bit. Rida Allen also writes plus size h's but Ive only read one of hers and didnt really care for it. All of these arent that steamy.. As much as I can remember they werent explicit but werent closed door either.

Ellora's Cave has a whole section devoted to their "Rebunesque" erotica romances, and all are + size women.

I am in download heaven right now. sadly some of the ones I see are not longer in print and are not available for the Kindle, so I am going to have to buy some paperbacks from Marketplace on some of them.

I know the feeling... I'm a big used book buyer, just to save $$$.
