Can someone please recommend me book/s (with added spoilers) where the heroine suffers a near fatal experience (I mean, literally NEAR DEATH'S DOOR)?
Books may follow themes where heroine:
A) Sacrifice herself for the hero
e.g. take an arrow/bullet meant for hero (I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS THEME)
- Judith McNaught's Something Wonderful --- A personal favorite
- Jude Deveraux's Lion's Lady
B) Became seriously ill due to hero's callousness, or someone else's
- Christine Monson's Stormfire --- controversial book; hero was beyond callous, but I did enjoy it
- Eloisa James' When Beauty Tamed the Beast
- Katherine Sutcliffe's A Fire in the Heart
C) Suffers some sort of accident that caused heartache for the hero
e.g. poison, abuse, child-bed fever, car/carriage accident, burning house, sky diving accident, attacked by rabid paranormal monsters, you name it (all genres are welcomed)... But again, the injury/ies must be severe enough that the hero fears certain death for the heroine. The more angst the better!
- Eileen Dreyer's Never a Gentlemen --- LOVED THIS ONE!!
Again, the more angst, tears, and heartache the better. I'm planning to have a crying fest this weekend!
