With so many athletes, rock stars, lawyers, and CEOs populating the shelves, it's easy to forget about the little guy! Last week we talked about the least romantic jobs that romance heroes have held down—rat catchers, morticians, and plumbers to name a few (though that last profession certainly inspires a lot of dirty jokes). While our blogger scored the shelves for unusual career choices, she struggled to find one in particular to add to her list: an accountant hero. Maybe that's because it isn't the sexiest profession, or maybe accountants are too busy to start affairs.
However, several commenters chimed in with the scarce professions they have read, or would like to see. What do you think is the most underrated hero profession in romance? What books would you recommend for those looking for that Average-Joe hero? And why do you think blue-collar jobs, like a mechanic or construction worker, are more prevalent than other, equally average, jobs?
