I used to be an avid reader of romance (comtemp and esp historical, mystery etc...). For the last year, I put the books away, because I was burned out (of reading the same plots, H/h etc...), but recently I have returned to my fav hobby. Please advise on historical romance books with inique and exciting hero's.

I SO get that, I haven't given up reading, but I've backed of a lot, as for historical I have to admit to not reading many at all this year, because none have grabbed me. Many of the heroes seem very Beta and I like Alpha.

BUT I can pass on a non-historical author who Erika introduced me too and I really haven't read anything better this year. Check out Kristen Ashley www.kristenashley.net
trust me, again thanks to Erika, this author has TOTALLY restored my faith in romance and Alpha males (drool! :P )! :wink:

But having said that I'd be happy for some historical suggestions too, I like Regency best...

Guys, I wish I could give Unique and Exciting heroes but have nothing to offer...heroes these days are dull and boring in historicals.

Wait from what I hear Anna Campbell's heroes are Unique and Exciting. Very very alpha. Controversial too.

I don't read too many historicals but the House of Rohan series by Anne Stuart is excellent: The Wicked House of Rohan, Shameless, Ruthless, Breathless and
Reckless (not in that order --check her website). Also, Mary Jo Putney's Lost Lords series is one of my faves also:
Loving a Lost Lord, Never Less Than a Lady, Nowhere Near Respectable, No Longer a Gentleman. She also has an older series --fallen Angels which is excellent also.

Ditto STuart's historicals. I totally forgot her new series.

I'll chime in on the Anne Stuart historicals. She is one of my favorites...I haven't read any BETA males in her tales!

Anna Campbell's alpha males are controversial, too. I enjoy her work as well.

Thanks everyone. I agree with you , I also don't like beta males--I think that is why I lost some of my interest in reading because many historical books don't have alpha hero's anymore.

Ditto to that!

If I come across historicals which fit this thread I'll be sure to post it here.
