Yz the Whyz (whyz) | 9327 comments The book I'm currently reading, The Defiant Hero by Suzanne Brockmann, has a younger hero in comparison to the heroine.

Usually, I'm used to reading books of an older hero and younger heroine. Somehow I like this age-reversal.

Any books you guys have read that would fall under this category?

Sarah  | 367 comments I'm wondering if it's a theme in Brockmann's work. Ladies' Man was the same way, older woman, younger man.

Yz the Whyz (whyz) | 9327 comments I don't think that it's a common theme in her books. I've read more than a few of her books, mostly from her Troubleshooters series and her Tall, Dark and Dangerous series, and so far, this is the only I have read with this age dynamics.

Yz the Whyz (whyz) | 9327 comments This reminds me of Sylvia Day's book, The Stranger I Married. Younger man, older experienced woman. I enjoyed this book very much, and would recommend it. A very steamy historical with a heart.

new_user My favorite with this theme is Suddenly You by Lisa Kleypas, another a spicy historical and also excellently written. ;)

Julianna (authorjuliannad) | 1759 comments I've actually enjoyed this theme more than I thought I would before reading some well-written books that have it. That said, I haven't run across many with this theme yet.

The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon (my all-time fav)
Fallen from Grace by Laura Leone
One Christmas Knight by Kathleen Creighton

Annvelwis | 671 comments Last Lovers by William Wharton isn't romance stricte, but it has a theme of relationship between younger man (49) and older woman (71). It's beautiful and touching story, and I liked it very much.

Melody (melos) Don't miss Tim by Colleen McCullough (author of The Thorn Birds). Classic. Much older woman (virgin spinster) and mentally challenged younger man. (The movie stars a young Mel Gibson.)

(Yz, I just read the Brockmann too! Can't wait for more of Sam's story!) :O)

Auntee | 13 comments Flat-Out Sexy by Erin McCarthy is a very good older woman/younger man book.

There's at least one more Brockmann book with a younger man hero--the one with Mike Muldoon and Joan--can't think of the name now...

Arch Auntee, I want to say that book is Out of Control. Mike and Joan were secondary characters to Wildcard and Van. I could be wrong.

message 12: by Auntee (new)

Auntee | 13 comments Arch, I just checked, Into the Night is the one I was thinking of. I can never keep her books straight--all the titles seem similar!:)

message 13: by Arch (new)

Arch Oh, you are right Auntee. It's Into The Night. That's the book where MaryLou finds that gun in Sam's car.

Jones was in Out of Control.
