|James Dean- the original bad boy|
Maybe it's because we want to tame them?
I don't know, but I do know I love to read them. I remember one book (medical romance) by Alison Roberts, The Legendary Playboy Surgeon, where the hero doctor rides his motorbike onto the ward to fulfill a dying boy's wish. *SIGH* - who wouldn't be melted by that? (Ignoring the noxious fumes in the presence of oxygen etc….) Then, of course, there's Mr Grey and his fifty shades- so many women appear to be attracted by someone they can 'fix'? And I've just finished reading Molly O'Keefe's RITA nominated book, Crazy Thing Called Love which was a-mazing- and had me crying and laughing, where the hero, Billy, is a very bad boy (truly, I cannot recommend this book enough).
So, now I'm intrigued and interested by bad boys I'd like your thoughts. Does anyone have any bad boy romance books they can recommend? Do you like a bad boy- or are you a rule follower? And- for one commenter- I'll send a copy of my latest release, The Shameless Maverick (Medical Romance) to someone who can tell me which movie the quote in the title of this blog (The rules are…there ain't no rules) comes from.
(Blurb for Shameless Maverick:
Junior Surgeon Kara Stephens has been assigned her first high-profile case. Great news- if she wasn't working with hot-shot Irish surgeon Declan Underwood, the man she kissed at the hospital ball! Declan may be the best reconstructive surgeon around, but his life in London is a far cry from his poverty stricken childhood. Kara's about to discover that there's more to her maverick than meets the eye.)
