Look, there’s a reason there’s an entire “Bad Boys” subsection on Amazon. We all love the hero, but sometimes, you really need the villain. Today, in celebration of my new release, Villain Lover – which tells the story of a heroine who teams up with a supervillain for revenge after her superhero boyfriend leaves her for dead – I’m offering some romance recommendations based on our all-time favorite villains!
If you love Killmonger, you’ll love Awakening by Rebel Miller
Besides the beautiful Michael B. Jordan and his fantastic performance, one of the best things about Black Panther is the way it plays with moral complexity and the beauty of black futurism. In Rebel Miller’s duology, we get not one, but two heroes who give the heroine all of this and more!
If you love Jareth, you’ll love The Goblin King by Shona Husk
Who doesn’t love Jareth from Labyrinth? For some people, he was their sexual awakening. I mean, that codpiece! And while it would be very difficult to capture the free-spirited, dangerously sexy and vulnerable performance that David Bowie gives, The Goblin King by Shona Husk gives all of the rich worldbuilding and dangerous romance that all of us Labyrinth fans live for!
If you love Kylo Ren, you’ll love Neron Rising by Keary Taylor
Kindred spirits united by a telepathic link across the galaxy? Yep. A chosen one who comes from nothing, partnering with a privileged villain to take down a bigger threat? Yep. It’s basically The Last Jedi with more Blade Runner vibes and lots of spaceship sex, and who doesn’t want more of that in their lives? One of the best parts of Neron Rising is the way in which our “villain” comes to fall hard for the heroine. He’s weak when it comes to her, and that’s incredibly sexy.
If you love Gaston, you’ll love The Beast by Katee Robert
Come on! You had to know a Katee Robert shout-out was coming! With her Villains Unbound series, you could fill this entire list with fantastic villain stories! What I love most about this particular one is that the dynamics we love most from villain stories – particularly that thin line between love and hate, anger and passion – are at the forefront, making for a sexy and emotional experience.
If you love any of the above, you’ll love Villain Lover!
I wrote Villain Lover because I, well, love villains! But I also love watching them become heroes. Vale Cortland, the sexy billionaire at the heart of the story, learns to let go of his ego, his manpain, and his considerable wealth, all in the pursuit of becoming a better man. And what could be sexier than that? Oh, there’s also a sexy pool table scene, a sexy ice bath scene, a lady and nonbinary underground fight club, and the heroine shows up to her own funeral wearing a leather jacket. If you’re convinced, grab Villain Lover today on Amazon and in Kindle Unlimited!
