LB | 26 comments I think 'Heroine farts' is definitely the hardest category on here. I'm pretty sure I have read examples of all the others at least once, but I can't think of a single romance I've read in which a heroine farted!

Now that I think about it, I cannot remember one either! Although I have also never met a hero with body issues, so that might be my biggest challenge...

Have you read A Scot in the Dark by Sarah MacLean? The Scottish hero in that is very burly and feels out of place in England. Women have also used him as a sex object due to his size and haven't really valued him as a person, which adds to his body issues.
