Been thinking about Stephanie's post from yesterday, and I believe I know the book she referred to. A delicious, wonderful hero and a so-so heroine, made an almost amazing romance.
But, honestly, I can't think of a romance where the hero and heroine were both amazing, and wonderful and complex. Even with my favourite books, either the hero, or the heroine, is more interesting.
All of Laura Kinsale's books, where the heroes are unbelievable and the heroines pale in comparison. JR Ward, the Zadist book where the heroine seemed almost extraneous to his storyline.
One of my favourite books is The Promise Of Jenny Jones, and in this book, the heroine is the star, and the hero is a little stock characterish.
My favourite SEP book is Ain't She Sweet. You can tell by the title of that book where the focus will be.
In Sherry Thomas's books, the heroine's all seem more memorable to me than the heroes, but she comes close to balancing the two.
I honestly can't think of a single romance where the two were perfectly balanced. I'm wondering if it's even possible.
Would love to know if anyone has read a romance that is perfectly balanced?
