Hi book lovers. This is my first post though I've been reading these forums for months and have found hundreds of recommendations!
I've spent the past 12 months reading paranormal romance and fancy getting back to my historical roots for a break.
I'm looking for medieval romance books that have good sex scenes. I like my men to be alpha if possible (warriors preferably). Don't mind if the heroine is raped/nearly raped/mistreated by the hero as long as he redeems himself by the end. Don't mind if the heroine has been beaten/mistreated/whipped by family/others in the past.
My favorite stories are where she's been mistreated and runs away and is saved by the hero. Or the hero takes her castle by force and forces her to become his wife. Or the hero kidnaps the heroine, ends up falling in love with her. Or, during the story the heroine is kidnapped/beaten/mistreated by Villain and Hero saves her. That sort of thing. Yes, I like my Heroes to save the World, one Heroine at a time!
Any area is fine; England, Scotland, etc (Gotta love those Scottish Lairds!).
I don't like big, epic stories that span entire lifetimes, they bore me. I don't mind if it's over a few years.
Examples of authors I like: Lora Leigh, Meljean Brook, Kresley Cole, Jude Deveraux, Christine Feehan, Julie Garwood, Virginia Henley, Emma Holly, Brenda Joyce, Samantha James, Angela Knight, Elizabeth Lowell, Johanna Lindsey, Karen Robards, J R Ward, Kathleen Woodiwiss, to name but a few! If you have recommendations that are for any of these authors please also write them down as I haven't read every book by each of these authors and I might have missed some good ones.
Loads of recommendations if possible. I can read an average sized book (300-400 pages) in about 4 hours and my TBR pile is getting worryingly small!
Any help would be much appreciated.
