Romance Novels With Celibate and/or Lesser-Experienced Heroes

These books have heroes who were celibate before they got involved with the heroine, for at least a year, and often for a much longer period. Also included are heroes with less experienced (three or less sex partners before the heroine). Virgin heroes don't belong on this list.

message 1: by Audrey (new)

Audrey Just wanted clarification...are "virgin heroes" included within "lesser-experienced heroes," as well? I see a couple of virgin heroes on the list, too.


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) No this list isn't for virgin heroes. I noticed that too, but you can't delete another person's vote.


message 3: by Audrey (new)

Audrey Okay, I'm deleting my votes for virgin heroes. Thanks for clarifying, Danielle.


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) No problem, Audrey. There is a Virgin hero list. Wanted to give a shout out to the heroes who aren't hound dogs with this list.

Here is the virgin hero list:

How can you remove a book from a list that you created which wasn't added by you ?!


message 7: by Ren (new)
