<p><strong><a href=" http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00NGJFVMO/allaboutromance" ;>Watership Down</a><em> </em></strong>and the first three books of <strong><a href=" http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0345535529/allaboutromance" ;>A Song of Ice and Fire</a>.</strong></p>
<p>Intelligent, independent, competent heroines, especially if they have a life other than being the hero's lover. I want to feel he's the best choice for her, not that he's her only choice.<br /> Characters with a sense of humor.<br /> Heroes who are different from the norm in some way.<br /> Scientist main characters (characters who use science to save the day, rather than, say, assassins pretending to be physicists). <br /> Complex plots where I can't be sure how the problems will be resolved.<br /> Realistic, detailed settings and worldbuilding. </p>
