I am looking for books with heroes that are similar to:

I have recently finished reading THE PANTHER AND THE PEARL by Doreen Owens Malek and what I liked most about that book is how the hero sees the heroine and gets so focused and obsessed about her that he lets no one and nothing stand in his way of him getting her and her staying with him. As soon as someone mentions her leaving him or running away from him he gets crazy. He is like a little boy with his favorite new toy in an endearing kind of way.

I guess I am looking for extremely POSSESSIVE hero who gets crazy possessive only about the heroine and when she comes on the scene. He is so possessive because he loves her and even when she betrays him in some way ( not with another man) he still cannot let her go. He is a caveman!

"You are MINE! ONLY MINE!" - gives me thrills any time

I don't want any paranormals! EDITED: Well, if you must you can suggest some. :)

Some other books I have read that have what I am looking for are:

DESERT HOSTAGE by Diane Dunaway
PRISONER OF MY DESIRE by Johanna Lindsey
ISLAND FLAME and SEA FIRE by Karen Robards

If there are any scenes of jealousy that is even better. There weren't any in the Malek book.

P.S. There is a funny scene or at least it was funny to me, in the Malek book where the hero's grandmother tells him to let the heroine go and he goes nuts. :)

P.S. I don't want books in which the heroine is raped by another man/men. Hero should be her one and only once they meet.

So GIVE ME SOME CAVEMEN! :D

Jenny

My Heart's Desire by Andrea Kane (historical). VERY alpha male but the jealousy part doesn't happen until the 2nd half of the book.

I just read a scene in a book where the guy literally goes caveman on the heroine and thinks "why in the heck did I go caveman?"

Matthew's Children by CJ Carmichael

May not be exactly what you are looking for but I had this thread on my mind and there it was in the book!

Peace, Julie

Jenny, I love that type of book too! I love when the hero loves the heroine just a bit more than she returns at first. Oh, and I love the "jealous" hero - but I hate the cheating heroine, so I want his jealousy to be unjustified, I guess.

I don't like when hero/heroines spend a lot of time apart. That usually happens when the hero "lets her go". I always get mad at him then - don't let her go! Be a caveman, hahah

I'm anxiously watching this thread to see what pops up.

I know you said no paranormals....but they're kind of not paranormals...Karen Marie Moning wrote her historical type time travel series...her Highlander series is really really good...only a little time travel, but those men are POSSESIVE! I love it too! Great topic!

I know, no paranormals but just wanted to say that I think that is what I like with Christine Feehan's Dark Series. Those guys are like the ULTIMATE cavemen!

Try Shannon McKenna's McCloud Brothers series. Start with Behind Closed Doors, the best in the series IMO. Her heroes are VERY alpha, protective and possessive. She's the best I've read in that aspect.

Hey Jenny,

I noticed someone recommended Christine Feehan's vampire series. Since you don't want paranormal you might want to checkout her ghostwalker series instead. It is more romantic suspense than paranormal. The men of that series are very possessive.

Also, Shannon McKenna writes books where the hero is always so obsessed/wrapped up in his feelings for the heroine. I would start with <i>Behind Closed Doors</i> and see if you like that book.

Have you tried Linda Howard? Her heroes are very obsessive as well. She is pretty popular, so you may have already read her. My favorites are <i>MacKenzie's Mountain</i>, <i>Mr. Perfect</i> and <i>Cry No More</i>. She has some great ones.

Also you could try <i>Dangerous Lover</i> by Lisa Marie Rice.

Edmond, the hero of Rosemary Rogers' new book...Scandelous Deception, meets and exceeds the caveman character you are looking for in a romance. I was pleasantly surprise and right now am still in love with Edmond. Arrogant, commanding, overprotective, doesn't take no, always knows best, bit of scoundral...one of the best male romantic leads in years.

CLAIMING THE COURTESAN by Anne Campbell
THE DEMON LOVER by Victoria Holt

DESIRE by Nicole Jordan
HEATHER AND VELVET by Teresa Medeiros

Karen Marie Moning books
Chrisstine Feehan books
Kresley Coles' Immortal After Dark Series


P.S. In some books this theme is present all the time while in others there is maybe just a scene or two. Some of the suggested books feature a possessive hero but the way the author writes doesn't make the book as intense and all consuming as some others. That doesn't mean the book is bad just different. A light read vs. an emotional rollercoaster.

I personally prefer an emotional rollercoaster.

Hope you'll enjoy the books on the list and keep suggesting more.

Thank you.

Jenny :)

I just finished Dangerous Games by Lora Leigh. OH MY, what a CAVEMAN!. I had only read one other book by her (one of the breed series) and it was just okay so I was hesitant to try one of the Tempting Seals series (especially since I'm not into contemporaries--but I'm so desperate for stories with TRUE alphas). I absolutely loved this book and I've just ordered the next book in the series. But be warned--it has some hard core love scenes in it which may offend some.
