Chryssa I have added a few of my own to the list!
love it! :O)


Fani *loves angst* I'll have to bookmark it and use it as reference from now on:)

Same here! Love those deaf/amputated/scarred men! lol!


message 4: by McGee Magoo (new)

McGee Magoo There's something about a blind man falling for a homely lady that gets to me. SIGH.


Fani *loves angst* Oh yeah! But I admit I prefer scarred or heroes with a limp to blind ones:)


message 6: by McGee Magoo (new)

McGee Magoo I'm sure there's some sort of psychological issue I must have to feel this way, but I like a disabled heroine... and if the hero is disabled, blind with a homely heroine is ideal. That seems kind of sick when I think about it, but I really like the heroes to love the heroine for something other than her looks. Plus, half of the scarred up or limping heroes don't seem to be as self-conscious as a woman would be. They still know they are awesome. I'm so glad I found this list. There's a website called Eye On Romance--they also have a page for Historicals called Historical Romance Writers. It's a great page if you can't remember a book or an author. You can search in a lot of different ways. If you remember the hero's name, you can search that way. If you know that he was a pirate, they have a search for that. If you know only that it was set in the civil war, there's a section for that, too. But I couldn't find a scarred/maimed/blinded category. Until now. Yay!


Fani *loves angst* That website sounds great! I'm going to add it in my bookmarks right now:)


message 8: by Vonda (new)

Vonda Why are they mostly regency? I personally prefer contemporary to historical, but this list is great.
I love the idea of loving someone and all of their imperfections, and still thinking they are perfect.


Fani *loves angst* I used to prefer historicals myself, but now I turned to contemporary romances myself Vonda. Gotta love a scarred cowboy or ex-soldier who thinks he doesn't deserve love but is convinced otherwise by the end of the book:)

Astraycat Many heroines in Sable Hunter's books had disabilities.

Your line of thinking actually makes perfect sense to me. :) Definitely not messed up.
