1. The Ninth Orb by Kaitllyn O'Connor features a hero whose wings mark him as warrior class.

3. Wicked Wings by Sahara Kelley, utterly silly erotic little fairies have a great deal of in flight fun. Wingin' It is also great but hard to find. 

4. Kinked by Thea Harrison, oh lovely Harpy. 

5. Hunting Season  by Shelly Laurenston, Viking Godess! I am thrilled to share that she will be writing in this world on the West Coast in the upcoming year.

A month or so ago I was thinking about breast size in Romance Novels. I think I must have read a book with a heroine with notably small breasts like Finding Grace. 

 

When I think about physical traits of romance characters, I am usually wondering about which are the best books that take that characteristic and make it a real part of the character or even sometimes the plot.  Who we physically are shapes us and really good romance novels build on these outer details to create a rich round character.  

 

I also think that we all like to see ourselves reflected in the fiction we read. The heroes tend to be more on the scale of fantastical in Romance because men aren't the primary audience while heroines meander between the Goddess and the more down to earth because female readers like both. 

 

So, I was thinking about boobs...lol 

 

I already posted my thoughts on the small breasted in romance. Here is that lovely blog: Small Breasted Women Have Bigger Hearts.

 

This post is on those heroines who are much more generously endowed. 

 

The books named above have heroines whose large breast size is discussed or part of the plot. 

So, for example in It Had To Be You, the heroine is often misjudged as not so bright partly because of her size being large. Dez in The Mane Event gets a lot of remarks because of her bounty.  She even has trouble fitting her bullet proof vest over the girls.

 

These details make for that layering in a romance novel that make the characters come alive. 

 

A wonderful article/rant reposted by Huffington Post: Women about having large breast starts like this

 

If you've got C-cup or larger-sized breasts, chances are it feels like you permanently have a toddler attached to your body, and like most demanding children, they dominate your whole life. Oh yeah, you can fill out a sweater like it's nobody's business, and you certainly get male eyes on you, but with your giant ta-tas comes a life of watching your boobs pop out of bras, shirts and dresses like they're rampaging bulls on the streets of Pamplona.

 

                    from "Tits McGee" 

 

 

The article goes into sarcastic exploration of the impact of having large breasts on one's life. 

 

There is also an Amazon Discussion on Seeing Ourselves in Romance: Breast Size

 

I would love the know your recommendations for great heroines whose cups runneth over.

Wings of the Wicked
Wings of the Wicked (Angelfire) - Courtney Allison Moulton

Wings of the Wicked was a great sequel to Angelfire! At first I was a little hesitant as it has been so long since I read Angelfire but to my surprise I fell back into the world easily. The plot was a little slow at times but I was enjoying the characters so much I didn't mind. Wings of the Wicked was on the more depressing side but had enough humor to where it wasn't overwhelming. The ending killed me though and will definitely be reading Shadows in the Silence! I easily recommend this series.

I needed cool-off time and what better way to rejuvenate yourself than laughing at a couple shitty-excuse-for-an-angel making out. I had another option but I'd rather die of passion(passionate rage is what I thought I'd be feeling) than be bored to death by the [b:Unearthly|7488244|Unearthly (Unearthly, #1)|Cynthia Hand|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1324782984s/7488244.jpg|9621771] series.So it starts with all:slash,slash,cut,boom,slashinsert annoying romantic momentslash,slash,cut,boom,slashinsert annoying romantic momentslash,slash,cut,boom,slashinsert annoying romantic momentinsert annoying normal life momentslash,slash,cut,boom,slashIt's so fucking cool. She chops and so much action, I'm giddy. But... ugh, the romance, the cheese-fest, the forbidden-ocity, KILL ME NOW!And Ellie is so fucking stupid at times that it's not even funny after the first few chapters. She's a true stupidling and a true annoyling. But then she has these moments of absolute smart-assery, and I just want to love her so much even though I never will.Oh man, I hate Ava. She's so cool and she probably loves Will. Oh man, I love Cadan even though he's all evil and stuff. Man, what do I do? Shit, Mother Will knows best.or I'm exaggerating?But at least I could kick all their asses.________________________________Will stared him down the way he had with Brian. “She’s mine.”“I am not yours, you caveman!”___________________________________“I’m so tired of this macho male ridiculousness.

It's enough to make you wanna shave off her head and make omelets upon it. It's sickening. And while I'm out there bitching, let's put in that some parts of the book were horrendously boring. But dayuum, I appreciate how Moulton dealt with the whole friend-zone-guy-thingy. The third wheel accepts that she won't love him, but he still wants to her friend and that's enough for him. I liked him, though. He's the only one who doesn't lick her shit like it's the elixir or something. And why does there have to be prom? Always? It should be the one thing wiped from existence, no?Not sure if I mentioned it before I'm sure I did but there's so many action scenes and so fucking cool, so much figurative balls-playing and more vulgar things I thought better of before writing down(it's happening more and more often now). Even the couple of them where she doesn't do anything but stand to the side like a dorkus while everybody's busy being on the wrong side of monsterizng monsters, they are pretty cool. Or I'm delusional. Take your pick.Whatever, this is me and [b:Wings of the Wicked|8501291|Wings of the Wicked (Angelfire, #2)|Courtney Allison Moulton|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1307466067s/8501291.jpg|13367196]:GINTAMA TROLLS FOREVER

Wings of the Wicked - Courtney Allison Moulton I enjoyed this one, but not as much as the first book. First, what I didn't like. Wasn't so much a fan if the constant action I this one. Felt like to much.Also frustrated with Ellie for awhile about flippant way she seemed to regard the safety of those she loved although I guess she had to learn the lesson hard way and by the end, I saw so much growth and change in her. There were a couple of secondary characters that I enjoyed. Marcus was one of them. He made me smile. Also, Her conversations with Nathaniel were a bright spot. Loved the romance. This was something that did not change. I fawn over Will and he was as amazing and dedicated as I remembered from the first. I will def be reading the 3rd soon, in fact, already on the wait list from the library, because I was left hanging, and I have to know what is going to happen. Bottom Line: Good second book with a few issues.
