Mel (bookhorder) | 203 comments Leftover Love by Janet Dailey has a plain/unusual hero. Tall, Dark and Handsome gets a bit tiring.

Are there any plain/different Heroes, without the modern Beast and Beauty theme running through it?

Andrea AKA Catsos Person (catsosperson) | 445 comments i can think of a book, but it’s not bodice ripper.

Mel (bookhorder) | 203 comments That's ok. Does not need to be. The above is not.


Andrea AKA Catsos Person (catsosperson) | 445 comments Lord Carew's Bride is old Mary Balogh.

The hero is a marquis and has a deformed arm and is a landscape architect.

Missy (on hiatus) | 33 comments MAYBE Reforming Lord Ragsdale by Carla Kelly Reforming Lord Ragsdale by Carla Kelly. The hero wears an eyepatch if I recall correctly. It's a traditional hr, so it's clean.

Caroline (carolineadair) | 116 comments Duke of Sin by Elizabeth Hoyt. The hero is the villain. Oh, and he's a true villain; he is vain, selfish, spoiled, and manipulative. He's awful!

You by Caroline Kepnes. This is not a bodice ripper, but it's amazing. The protagonist is a serial killer. Oh, and I love him.
