Disabilities in Romance
Romances with heroes or heroines who have physical, mental, or emotional maladies. Part of a list originally created in 1996 and reorganized in 1999 into two sub-lists, one for “less than beautiful” characters, the other for disabled characters. The former features characters who are homely, plain, scarred, or do not meet the standards of beauty for their time. The lists were totally separated in 2003; click here for the “less than beautiful” list.
