My fav Almodovar film is Flower of My Secret. I liked the adaptation from a billion years ago of the Anne of Green Gables series. I loved the book version of The Shining more than the film. I love just about any of the Jane Eyre adaptations but the Fassbender version with it's switched around format gets the mood exactly right.
Yes! This is what I live for - witty and intelligent characters. Love Stephanie Laurens' heroines because they are intelligent and look at the big picture. Love witty dialogue like in a Celeste Bradley novel or Claudia Dain's Courtesan Chronicles series.
I never really understood the whole "step-brother" romance phenomenon. I mean I guess there's no biological connection so one level of ick is removed but....I don't know. I read a story once by Red Garnier about a man and woman who were not biologically related & didn't have a "step-" connection, but the guy's family always looked at the woman and her sister as family and tried to treat them that way and force the future H/h to fit that mold. They became friends in their youth and suppressed their natural attraction that developed over time organically. But to me, that's different.
I love beta heroes as well as alpha types. One of my favorite beta heroes is Reggie from "The Pursuit of Marriage" by Victoria Alexander. He's a sweetie, good to his family, a loyal friend, and very easy going. After wearing his heart on his sleeve too many times, he invents an alpha alter-ego to try and win him love. His friends help spread stories of his supposed exploits to help him out because they want to help him since he's such a good friend and a good guy. Very funny story. My favorite beta hero.
