message 1: by Mel (new)

Mel Buggy, I added a few books. Is it only PNR/UF books we're voting on? If so, you can throw out Special Forces :)


message 2: by Buggy (new)

Buggy Thanks Mel, No,no Special Forces is fine, anything goes. Man love is always welcome :)


message 3: by Mel (new)

Mel Ehehe, great. I hope you do read it soon. I know you'll love it!


message 4: by Buggy (new)

Buggy I've had it for quite a while now but keep delaying the read because it is SO long


message 5: by Mel (new)

Mel Oh but it's worth every word. Eventhough, around halfway, you'll hate me for making you read it. Not because it gets boring but because of the agony!
Another agony (or shall I say: ahgony) is the fact that I'm still waiting for LUnl! Shocking!


message 6: by Buggy (new)

Buggy Now You've made me want to read it even more! I love authors that "torture" their heros (don't know what that says about me?)

And what is up with the lateness of your book? I mean really, You were 1st to get yours last year. I noticed today that orders were starting to show up in others peoples mail boxes, sorry Mel!


message 7: by Mel (last edited Mar 22, 2011 12:29AM) (new)

Mel I know, booohooo :'(

Oh the authors of SF both torture their heroes and their readers. You have to let me know when you start it! :)


message 8: by Anita (new)

Anita I love this list. For some reason, maybe I'm a freak, but I love a good physically or mentally damaged hero who overcomes the odds! It makes the romance so much more of a challenge. I love a good challenge. I added "The Madness of Lord ian Mackenzie" to the list. This one deals with autism/Asperger's syndrome before it was understood. Amazing book.


message 9: by Buggy (new)

Buggy Great add Anita, You are not alone in your love of the damaged hero, they always get to me


message 10: by Anita (new)

Anita I wanted to add Love Means... No Boundaries. The two main characters in this story are damaged. One is bind since the age of 12 and the other has facial scars from a motorcycle accident. It is a lovely story. A true love story. :)


message 11: by Anita (new)

Anita Also, Rescue Me. Great book!


message 12: by Anita (new)

Anita Also, Simple Jess. Gorgeous and lovely romance between a mountain widow and a mentally disabled young man. Lovely scenery and beautiful romance.


message 13: by Ruth Madison (new)

Ruth Madison (Dev Love Press) This is my genre! I love to read it and I love to write it. I added my books to the list, hope you all enjoy them! :)


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

I much prefer mental distress, things psychological and psychiatric.


message 15: by Buggy (new)

Buggy Hey Alice, I would think those whould also be perfectly acceptable, related more to the tortured side


message 16: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Marks Thanks so much to whoever added my book Winter Rose to the list! :) You made my weekend! :)


message 17: by Matt (new)

Matt BDB all the way!!


message 18: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Hahaha . . . LOVE the title: SCARS ARE SEXY!


message 19: by Buggy (new)

Buggy Thanks Jessica :) But they kinda are!


message 20: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Ah . . . so true Buggy, so true!

P.S. I have a scar. Should I consider myself sexy? :D


message 21: by Buggy (new)

Buggy Absolutely!

LOL, So do I


message 22: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Hahaha . . . Well, as they say:

''The more the merrier'' :D


message 23: by Katrina (new)

Katrina Great list! May I also recommend Zane's Redemption (Scanguard vampires series by Tina Folsom) and also oldie but goodie - Angelique series by Anna and Sergue Golon. It is a historic romance set in France at the time of Luis XIV and the main character, Count Joffre de Peirac, is not only heavily scarred but also lame(but only in physical sence).


message 24: by Buggy (new)

Buggy Thanks Katrina, glad you like the list. My fav type of hero. Feel free to add any books yourself.

At the top, under the heading, there are two folders "all votes" and "add books to list" Yours are great adds as I've never heard of either :)

Hm . . . I'll have to look for those. Thanks for the update Katrina :).


message 26: by Katrina (new)

Katrina Happy to contribute, specially the Angelique. The series was extremely popular in 1960-70, maybe more in Europe then in America, to the extent that 5 of the books were made in to movies - I know that it will show my true age, but there are several generations of women who were totally in love with Le Count, your's truely included:)

I used to love the Angelique series on television as a teenager and simply devoured the Angelique books which I borrowed from the library later on.

I couldn't agree more when you said "I know that it will show my true age, but there are several generations of women who were totally in love with Le Count". So true... :-)
