Kathy Golden | 99 comments I want a romantic suspense where the heroine is not a super strong woman. No FBI or Special Forces or anything like that. She can be brainy with computer smarts, not geeky, or maybe something usual like a realtor or teacher, housewife, possibly a nurse; could be a swimmer or a dancer, an artist. I don't want a woman trying to compete with the man. I don't mind if other readers have called her a weak female. I want a woman who needs and appreciates a hero. As for him, no billionaire unless he's one incognito, and even that might be pushing it. He can be military or security or have practically any occupation. Explicit sex is fine. No clean romance and no erotica. Also, I want the suspense part to be believable. I know. I don't want much. Thanks anyway!

I can't find anything that comes close to Worth the Fall https://amzn.to/2tnvkyn, but if you know of a book like that one, please share it.

Nikki Belaire (goodreadscomnikkibelaire) | 6 comments Hi Kathy! I just happened to see your post and thought my newest release might be of interest to you. If not, I hope you find what you're looking for. Happy reading! :)

192: A Dark Mafia Bodyguard Romance


Ally.Always.Reads (allym612) | 33 comments I’m a big fan of Cate Beauman’s Bodyguards of LA County series.
I wouldn’t say that the females are weak but they know that they need help and protection.

I wasn’t a big fan of book 1 so if you don’t like that one, don’t stop. I promise they get A LOT better!!

As I said, I don't mind explicit sex scenes. I just don't want extremes like clean romance or erotica.

Wow, an 11-book series. I'm definitely adding this one to my list on Amazon. Thanks.

Uvi | 14 comments Tiffany Snow”s Kathleen Turner series kind of matches your requirements except one of the Mc’s is rich. I don’t think he is billionaire (lol)but he is a CEO so he might have some millions stashed

It's Me - Yvette (yvette1000) | 7 comments I love the Karen Rose romantic suspenses, and highly recommend. This is the first book Don't Tell. The series, for me, just gets better.


message 12: by Kathy (new)

Kathy Golden | 99 comments Thanks to all. I have a list for these books on Amazon, so I'm adding the recs as they come in.

Thanks, Uvi. I wouldn't have thought that series would have the type of female I'm looking for. But I've added it to my list.

Carvanz | 77 comments I have to second LIz's rec. Midnight Man and that whole series pretty much covers what you're asking for.
