Jenna | 595 comments Looking for romance/historical fiction/contemporary fiction wherein the heroine (who can be "not beautiful") eventually realizes potential and goodness/worth of hero who is a beta hero (and often not handsome, athletic, charming, etc.)
A few that I've read that really fit the bill are:
Libby's London Merchant and The Country Gentleman and The Weaver Takes a Wife. Jeremy in In Pursuit of Miss Eliza Cynster kind of fits, but he also ends up proving he's actually dashing and can pull off heroics in the end.
I've looked the beta list here: http://forums.rtbookreviews.com/viewt...

Thanks in advance of any other ideas!

Jenna | 595 comments Thanks, both of you for suggestions. I looked at goodreads list; I think I've read almost all of those too! But may have to vote to add a few.

The Last Weynfeldt is kind of along these lines.

Brittany | 322 comments I had to create a post in the unsolved folder since I couldn't remember the name of this book and thankfully it was solved quickly. A good book with a beta hero is When I Fall in Love by Iris Rainer Dart. The hero has cerebral palsy and the story is an emotional one with great character depth from what I remember.

The romance develops slowly, and is not consummated, but it's there.
