Actually, while reading Dreams of a Dark Warrior, I really wasn't sure there was any way I could like the hero. But by the end, somehow I really did like him and was definitely rooting for him.
Usually I hate reincarnation plots, though. One book in particular that I despised was Prince of Dreams by Lisa Kleypas. Thankfully, I don't believe I've come across another book with quite the level of WTF and plot elements I dislike as it.
The hero was a huge a-hole, cheated on the heroine, then randomly travels to the past to inhabit the life of his ancestor, and lets himself fall in love with a woman who seems just like the heroine, and who the heroine was apparently a reincarnation of, despite having done everything he could in the main storyline to avoid falling in love. After this interlude, which had to have taken up at least 1/4 of the book, when his ancestor-self dies, he returns to the present (Victorian era) a completely changed man. Everyone else is completely baffled (including me), since the whole thing took an hour. The heroine has absolutely no memory of the events, either. So in effect, he fell in love with his great x whatever grandma, then turned those feelings to the heroine who happened to bear a striking resemblance to said ancestor. However, they grew up in entirely different backgrounds, so I really don't see how they could possibly have ended up as similar as the hero seemed to think them. And I'll stop ranting now.
That book just bothered me in so many ways.
