This week's question:

Heroes in historical romance like the extremes - the virgin hero or the rogue rake. Which of the two makes you shudder in pleasure?

I have to admit that historical romances aren't my favorite genre to read. However, I do have a few authors that I love and will read their historical romance titles.
So the question is--do I prefer the virgin hero, or the more sinister rogue?  Well, that just depends on the story and the mood I am in at the time. Both can be quite delish and make me swoon with lust.

Case in point---Jamie Fraser from OUTLANDER. He was a virgin and man did he rock my hoohah.

But, I do tend to fall more for the Man Whore of the fiction world. They know a woman's body and honestly, what woman wants a man who isn't familiar with the G spot? 
I would LOVE to see a more erotic writing of Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights...that man was dark, dirty, and delicious on a scale of 1 to OMG I'm cumming.

So what about you? Which hero do you prefer? Leave me a comment and let me know!


  1. I wholeheartedly agree - Jamie Fraser rocked my world, but I typically fall for the Bad Boy. I don't read a lot of romance / erotica - I'm more of a sci fi / fantasy / historical fiction geek and the most recent BB example I can pull from my still-sleep deprived brain is Eric Northman. Call it the thrill of the chase, but I want a guy (at least in my fantasies) that I can conquer ;D

    1. Eric wasn't my fave at first, but he has grown on me :)

  2. Everyone is choosing the rouge rake, and for good reason! I however had a different answer.

    I also used Jamie as an example of the perfect virgin hero. Love him!

    Here's mine:

    1. Jess,
      Jamie is one of my all-time favorite male heros...there is just something about him that speaks to me :)
      thanks for commenting!

  3. Haha, great answer! Jamie is a great hero, but definitely the Man Whore for me. Now if there is a retelling of Heathcliff, I'd totally go for that.
