Bad Boy Hero

Bad Boy Hero – the hero has a dark reputation but the heroine sees the good in him, and her love redeems him. This is a classic trope of love conquering all, and I’m not really surprised that it’s one of my favorites. Another variation of it is Fake Rake, in which the hero (usually in a Regency) pretends to be worse than he is, for reasons that seem like a good idea at the time.
