It’s a universally accepted fact that men who rescue and care for dogs are 75% hotter than men who aren’t animal lovers. Don’t bother looking it up. Trust me on this. You know I’m right. So, with that in mind here are our picks for the top 10 romance heroes who are 75% hotter than other romance heroes because they rescue dogs.

So, we consider this list a public service to all the vibrant, beautiful, sexy women out there who love younger men. You’re welcome.

Any romance reader can tell you that there is a difference between a snarky, sassy heroine and a bitchy heroine. Snarky, sassy heroines are intelligent and able to fire pithy one-liners at unsuspecting heroes in a single bound, posses an above-average grasp of sarcasm, and are—above all—supremely likeable. On the flip side, bitchy heroines are, well, bitchy. And while you do occasionally run into bitchy heroines in romance land, there’s no shortage of snarky, sassy ladies to make up for it, especially in paranormal romance. So, without further ado, here are our picks for the snarkiest, sassiest heroines you’ll ever find in paranormal romance novels.
(Listed in no particular order. Also, these are all series. We’ve listed book 1 in each series so you’ll know where to start. You’re welcome. Also: we understand some of these books can be classified as urban fantasy. We get that. But without the romance element, the stories would be severely impacted, so we’ve included them and called them romance anyway. Plus, it’s our list, and no one is the boss of us, so we’re gonna include whatever we want. The end. Now, on with the show...)
Let’s be practical for a moment. It kind of sucks to go out on Valentine’s Day. Everything is crowded, the wait time at restaurants is insane, and everyone’s trying just a little too hard to prove how much they love the person they’re out with. Sure, it’s romantic and all. But admit it...there’s something oddly appealing about the idea of staying home, curled up in your favorite reading chair, wearing your comfiest sweats, reading about hot and/or sweet Valentine’s Day romances instead of being out among the unwashed masses on a cold night in February. So, for all our fellow Valentine’s Day scrooges out there, this special Valentine’s Day “best of” list is for you!
The world of sports romance might be nearly overrun with male football, hockey, and basketball players (not to mention all the MMA fighters), but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a ton of notable female athletes to read about! So, with that in mind, in honor of the 2018 Winter Olympics, we bring you the best female athletes in sports romance today.
It’s cold out there, y’all. And what better way to stay warm than some hot, romantic guy-on-guy action? Well, if that’s your jam, we’ve got just what you’re looking for:
OK, I’ll admit to having a great love of tortured, angsty, damaged, grumpy heroes. I can’t really explain it, other than to say how much I love reading about that type of guy falling ass-over-elbow for the woman of his dreams. It’s usually a GREAT ride getting there. But that doesn’t mean I don’t also appreciate the hell out of a “nice guy” hero. You know, the type you wouldn’t feel weird about taking home to meet your mom and dad. Now, I’m purposefully not using the term “beta hero” here, because I think that can sometimes take on a negative connotation. Some people think if the hero isn’t an alpha, domineering a-hole, that he can’t be sexy. Well, I’ve got the reads to prove that nice guys can be alpha. And further, they can be every bit as sexy as tortured, angsty, damaged, grumpy heroes. Check out these picks for the best “nice guy” heroes in romance today:
Tattooed heroes seem to be polarizing in romance. Readers either love ‘em, or hate ‘em. Here at Romance Rehab, we LOVE them. We love artists, too—so why not do a combo for this week’s list and share our favorite tattooed tattoo-artist heroes in romance today? Pretty freakin’ cool right? We thought so. So, here it goes:
