Hi guys. Nice to meet you all. This is my first time posting in this forum, so I wanted to tell you how helpful you all have been when I needed to find a new book (or books) to read. But I felt like a cheater just hiding and waiting for someone else to ask for what I want. That's why today I decided to take this matter into my own hands.
Can anyone give me some romance novels or series (but no erotica, please) with a really quiet, stoic hero and a sweet, sunny, talkative heroine?
For the hero: I want him to be really quiet, rarely smile, very calm, smart/clever, serious, stoic, oh, and possessive (yes, the traits escalated LOL). I don't mind if he's cold and emotionless, or nice and caring (but is misunderstood or hiding it from other people.)
- The perfect examples for the cold, emotionless type would be Raphael from the Guild Hunter series and Zhadist from Black Dagger Brotherhood series (But I gotta say I prefer Raphael more.)
- The perfect example for the nice, kind, and caring type would be...Optimus Prime. I know, I know. He's not a romance novel hero. He's not even human. But he's THE hero for me. I totally love the guy, er, robot. He doesn't talk much, he's noble, he's very kind, and he's got the weight of the whole universe on his shoulders. I don't know how to explain, sorry. Let's see if I can come up with someone else. Hmm...Oh, I got one. Sheriff Sawyer from Head Over Heels by Jill Shalvis. He's totally sweet and nice, but he doesn't really talk or smile (and when he does, whew, total heat.)
For the heroine: Well, I want her to be extremely talkative, sunny, sweet, nice, and if she's funny or unique (in other word, weird) or hyperactive, that's even better. I don't mind if she's girly or tomboyish or pretty or ordinary.
- Some of the examples I can think of are Cybil from The Perfect Neighbor by Nora Roberts, many heroines from the Immortal After Dark series by Kresley Cole, and Ainsley from the Many Sins of Lord Cameron by Jennifer Ashley.
Wow, that was long. It makes me realized how picky I am =_=". Sorry for being this demanding, guys. I hope some of you could tolerate to finish all of the contents above to get to this sentence.
And lastly, thank you in advance for taking your time to both read and answer this request, I really appreciate this. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
