Author Topic: Books Where Hero Believes Heroine Betrayed Him (cheating, secrets, etc)  (Read 13277 times)

Offline bookaholic1

I like books where the Hero thinks the heroine betrayed him in some kind of way. Basically a big misunderstanding if you want to call it that. Any recommendations? I prefer contemporary.

I finally get a bouquet and it's a goodbye present. That's depressing.

Double Standards by Judith McNaught - the hero thought the heroine leaked some info so that her stepfather can beat the hero at a business bidding

The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst - the hero thought the heroine got pregnant on purpose

If you like historical romance, you could also try "The Edge of Desire" by Stephanie Laurens. The hero and heroine were a really great couple.  ;)

You could read almost all of Judith McNaught's historicals and they all have this theme.  One of my favorites from JM is Something Wonderful.  I really liked the h in this story and wanted to junk punch the H at times (many times) for being such a douche bag to her.  He goes through various phases of not trusting her, but that last one... oh crap, when the h realizes what the H believed of her, you totally feel it rip your heart into shreds as it did hers.  :'(

For contemporary, one of my other favorites from JM is Paradise.  This one has misunderstandings on both the H and h's part.

Another great one is The Unwanted Wife by Natasha Anders.  Great story where the H believed the h was in on the plan with her father to blackmail him into marriage.  He finds out and when you find out how he treated her..... argh!  Still loved it though  ;)

Hope you enjoy these stories as much as I did

Edited to add:  Just remembered another one I really liked called Wanted by Her Lost Love by Maya Banks.  The H believes his fiancee, the h, and his brother were cheating on him and kicks her out.  I LOVED this one because the h says all the stuff you wanted all the other heroines to say (e.g. why didn't you trust me? i never lied to you, etc. stuff like that).

I would rather cuddle then have sex.  If you're good with grammar, you'll get it.
