Hi there. This is my first time starting a recommendation thread, but something has been bothering me for quite a while now.
I love romances where a gorgeous hero falls for a heroine who is physically plain/unattractive. Unfortunately, books with this theme often shackle the heroine with such low self-esteem that I find it unbelievable the hero can fall in love with her. For heaven's sakes, will it kill someone to write a story where the heroine is confident in herself? Someone's worth is not completely determined by looks. I hate it when characters wallow in woe for not being born with stellar genes.
Can someone recommend me stories where the heroine is unattractive, but is still confident in herself and gives the hero a run for his money? I want the hero to genuinely fall for her because of her personality.
A good example of what I'm looking for is Lady Libertine by Kate Harper. The heroine here is a woman with pride in herself and does not cower from the hero just because he's gorgeous and demanding.
