Given Miles’ and Hen’s landslide victory in the Holiday Bonus Chapter Contest, this seemed like a good time to explore Black Tulip read-alikes.
If you like Henrietta and Miles, you’ll probably also like….
— Julia Quinn’s To Catch an Heiress. I know, I know, more Quinn (what can I say? Hen and Miles owe a lot to her work), but, as a couple, Caroline and Blake remind me so much of Hen and Miles. And did I mention that it features a ridiculous Napoleonic spy? Hen and Miles would feel right at home.
— Loretta Chase’s Mr. Impossible. Rupert is somewhere between Miles and Turnip on the hero spectrum, and all around lovable.
— Jessica Benson’s The Accidental Duchess. Okay, so the hero is more a Richard than a Miles, but Gwen, the heroine, is so very, very Hen, everone’s best friend with somewhat managing ways and a delightfully crazy family.
— The Mummy. Okay, I realize, this isn’t a novel or a Regency, but that Brendan Fraser character just IS Miles, in oh so many ways. Especially that confused “What?” when he can’t figure out what he’s done to upset the heroine.
Who are your Miles and Hen read-alikes?
