While I am an avid reader, I primarily stick to romances. I would say that my favorites are historical romances, but I love romance novels in every category.
I actually have a few of these and could probably come up with more. First of all I do not think these are especially well written. One of these authors in particular is in desperate need of an editor. But the thing that bothers me the most, is the type of men in these books portray. Its the whole caveman/tarzan mentality. The only good thing about these very overrated books, is that it brought a huge amount of people ( Ok, mostly women) back to reading. Always a good thing. I think if these people who read one book a year, suddenly start glomming up books because of these, they will begin to realize that these books just aren't that special.
Teresa Medeiros stated very well how I feel about this type of "hero" on her website:
