I nominate Thunder & Roses by Mary Jo Putney.

Jultri | 402 comments I nominate two old 5 star favourites of mine, I wouldn't mind rereading again :
The Matchmaker - PTSD afflicted war hero who in a self-medicated inebriated state manages to draw the heroine's ire by his molestation of her person, thereby setting the stage for their antagonistic future interactions.

England's Perfect Hero - grouchy, physically and emotionally scarred hero who has been secretly burning for the heroine for years.

And I almost seconded your nomination rather than submitting two myself. :)

Tanya Sridhar (angellus08) | 340 comments One of my favorite tropes!

I'll nominate a book I really loved with a scarred hero and another I wish to reach!

Last Night with the Earl and The Spinster's Secret

You beat me to it, Jan! I second this nomination. Was the first book that came to mind with the theme.

We read Yours Until Dawn for a group read last year, so maybe you have something else you'd like to nominate instead.
