One of Kristen Ashley's “heroes,” Knight from the book of the same name, is a pimp. Rehvenge from J.R. Ward's Lover Avenged is both a pimp and a drug dealer (not to mention addicted himself). More and more heroes have jobs that are illegal at best, immoral at worst.
And yet they're still heroes.
Are you comfortable reading romance novels where the hero has this kind of profession? What other books feature anti-heroes with suspect ways of making money?
h/t to H&H's Janet Webb for the topic idea!
