I was wondering if you could help a Canadian bitch out. I am looking for a
contemporary category romance that I read in the mid to late ‘90’s. To
be honest I don’t remember much about the plot or character names. I
believe there was some mystery or action thing going on. What I do remember
is as follows:
Hero: Pretty standard romance novel dude (tall, dark and handsome) with an
alpha outlook. But, I remember vividly a scene where he paints the
heroine’s toenails and declares himself to be a male feminist. Also, he
had a gay butler/chauffeur/personal assistant that the hero rescued from
being beaten up outside a gay nightclub. I am not sure what the hero was
doing outside said nightclub, but whatever.
Heroine: I am not sure what she did for a living, but I believe she worked
in an office. I know, that narrows it down to just about a billion different
careers. She had curly hair that took her a crazy amount of time to
straighten each day. I remember the hero wondering what was taking her so
long to get ready each day, the guy had no idea she had curly hair. Hero
also thought she had a great butt (so much for the feminist claims).
I could do an entire website of just HaBOs, I swear. Some of the ways in which you all remember romance plots are so similar to mine, I love it.
