Those of you that know me know that I am a HUGE Catherine Anderson fan — I’m a HUGE fan of emotional romance — real life situations.
In so many of Catherine’s stories she shows the reader how we can overcome life’s obstacles & that we are more than just what our name tag says, or the uniform we wear, or how others choose to define us.
Can you tell I just love this stuff?
One of my ULTIMATE favorites was Jennifer Ashley’s – The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie - this is one you all must read: It was whispered all through London Society that Ian Mackenzie was mad, that he’d spent his youth in an asylum, and was not to be trusted-especially with a lady. Yet Beth found herself inexorably drawn to the Scottish lord. Despite his decadence and his intimidating intelligence, she could see that he needed help- her help. Because suddenly the only thing that made sense to her was…the madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie.
The hero struggles from a disease which was not discovered at that time – Aspergers – Ian’s lack of eye contact, memory, fixation with patterns, and bluntness made him very real.
I know there are other stories, where authors use a disability, or some handicap of sorts that make a Hero or Heroine real, someone you care about & are routing for through their struggles . . . . and, I am drawing a blank — do you know of others?
Let’s list them below — what other romances, either you’ve read or remember that deal with H/H and disability – we want to know!!
