I have to preface this post with a disclaimer. I love reading male protagonists. In fact, I've done so all my life, no problem. Fine. No big deal. Most of my friends in college were guys. What's the difference? Guys are fine. I like guys. I love my DH. I have nothing against the male species.
Now, I love spy stories. I love espionage thrillers. But last night, in the middle of listening to The Company by Robert Littel, I couldn't take it anymore.
I suddenly felt that if I read one more male protagonist, I was going to throw up. No kidding. I have absolutely no idea why. I have six books that I'm really dying to read that are excellent, outstanding books. Really excellent books.
But they've got male protagonists.
That's fine, but ... I'm sick of male protagonists in the genre I want to read. I literally feel NAUSEOUS at the thought of reading one more male protagonist. I've never, ever, experienced this in my whole life.
Maybe it's some weird hormone or something.
And I love romances, but I'm sick of the fact that every damn time a woman is the protagonist, she's got to have a romance.
Help! I'm dying to read some real kick-ass heroines. Any recommendations? I guess I can put up with a romance, if need be, but I swear to goodness ... no man rescues the woman plots, please!
