It was “She’s the Man” with Amanda Bynes. She had such incredible comedic timing and hilarious facial expressions, I giggle through the whole thing. That is one of my favorite feel-good movies, so I can’t wait to see what we come up with, book-wise!
Roya: Not a book but i’ve always liked Shakespeare in Love 💕
I would love to see a list about heroine disguised as a boy.
You don’t have anything like that now do you?
Thanks in advance.
Do you have a favorite for this list?
Magan: Babe in Boyland
Megan Hart: I don’t usually rec my own books, but if Ashley likes alternate world fantasy adventure romance, she might like Beneath the Veil. Definitely a heroine disguised as a man!
Robyn: The Kingmaker Chronicles by Amanda Bouchet. Cat the h started off as a boy but the H figured it out. I died laughing through the first book A Promise of Fire.
Niki: A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet was a great fantasy romance!! The mystery, the magic, the humor, supporting characters. The heroine was awesome and tough and the hero was pretty great too!!! 10 plus stars 🙂
Lia: Sea Change by Darlene Marshall. Historical, with pirates!
Gabriella: Sci-fi and YA, but I really liked it. “The Academy” by Emmaline Andrews
Anne: The Secret Girl by CM Stunich (this one is RH though)
Melissa: Anne Victoria can it be read as a stand-alone?
Anne: Melissa Coy No, you can’t. It’s a trilogy. But really worth it! It has a Manga vibe in it! 😁
Tessa: The Secret Girl was great. I didn’t want to stop reading it. Finished it last night and ugh, she’s the queen of CH, I swear. But how it ended. NOPE. I reject that reality. 😛 I will live in the hope that it’s a lie. Yep, I am happy in my NOPE bubble.
Maryse: Luckily they are all out now! Bring on the cliffhangers, we can just jump right in to the next one. YAY US!
- Ridiculous! (Ridiculous Lovers Book 1) by D. L. Carter
- Alanna: The First Adventure (Song of the Lioness series Book 1) by Tamora Pierce
bobbie: Painted Faces L.H. Cosway might work for this trope.
Maryse: I think this one was more HE was dressed as a woman, however I LOVED THIS BOOK SO HARD that it’s an excellent option anyway! 😀 That one was AMAZING!!!! In fact, here’s my Book Review.
Nay: Painted Faces was among my 2012 top 3 (I can’t believe it’s been SIX years!) …I LOVED Painted Faces!!
Anne: Just finished Painted Faces and yes I love it so much! Nicholas is so great! And Freda is amazing! I want to be her BFF. This book is so beautiful I just can’t lol
Jacie: The Girl’s Got Secrets by Linda Kage is a contemporary/new adult romance. It’s part of an awesome series!
Andrea: Pathfinder’s Way by T. A. White is a fantasy novel where the heroine spends most of book pretending to be a boy. It doesn’t start that way, but fairly early on the disguise comes into play. Fantastic story.
Ashley: Thank you everyone for your suggestions. I love historical romance if anyone has suggestions from that era. 😊
Mony: Storm and Silence series by Robert Thier – a favourite of mine
- Unmasked by the Marquess by Cat Sebastian
- The Corinthian by Georgette Heyer
- The King’s Man by Elizabeth Kingston
- Highland Rebel by Judith James
Mal: This is one trope that I absolutely love and I’m always searching for more books like these! Other than the ones already mentioned like Pathfinder’s Way, some of my other favorites are :
- Unmasking Miss Appleby by Emily Larkin (HR with a touch of fantasy)
- Paladin by Sally Slater (This one’s amazing!)
- The Education of Bet by Lauren Baratz-Logsted (YA historical)
Susan: A Debutante in Disguise – she disguises herself as a man so she can practice medicine.
