The Virgin Hero
I have a total soft spot for virgin heroes. I roll my eyes when the heroine is a virgin unless it’s historical romance. So why then do I read virgin heroes like crack?
Maybe because the trope goes against societal norms. We expect males to lose their virginity before they end their teen years. Yet we have a double standard for the females. With whom are we expecting these teen boys to be sleeping with if not their female peers? The one class slut?
By day, Lynne Silver lives the suburban soccer mom life; volunteering with the PTA, doing laundry and working. By night she enters the sensuous world of alpha males and passionate heroines.
She calls the nation’s capital home and lives in an old fixer-upper with her husband and their two sons. When not writing romance, she reads it. Lots of it. Over and over and over again, preferably with a bag of M&Ms in hand.
