I can only think of " Years" by LaVyrle Spencer.(Historical) The male is much older than the female. It's one of my all time favorite books.

In An Accidental Mistress by Tracy Anne Warren the hero is 15yrs older than the heroine. But that's pretty common in historicals.  Where the hero is 30ish and the heroine is in the 17-21 range.

I don't think I've ready any older woman/younger man ones.  Not where there's a significant difference. Maybe just a year or 2.

I know Jane Feather has some - maybe her Charm Bracelet Trilogy - I know I was reading one and thought the age difference was just too much...I think the heroine was like 16.

When you say age difference, can you give me a range?  Alot of the historicals have the 10 yr age gap.

Sleeping Beauty by Judith Ivory is really great.  Older woman-younger man; I think it's something like 10yrs (forget atm).  It has a really sweet ending.

Anyone but You by Jennifer Crusie - the heroine is 10 years older than the hero.  This is a contemporary novel.  After reading this, I kept telling my husband I was looking for a 30 year old!!

Books in which the h is older than the H:

Nothing Personal by Elisa Adams Novel  ( just finished this one , liked it a lot, keeper)

A Perfect Stranger by Gina Wilkins (Temptation)

The Older Woman by Cheryl Reavis  (Special Edition)

Room For One More by Virginia Nielsen (an excellent old Superromance)

Robbing The Cradle by Anne Henry (oldie but goodie, Harlequin American)

Family Blessings by Lavyrle Spencer (15 year difference, loved this book, hated the movie)

Sweet Burning by Sandi Shane (an old Special Edition, excellent)

Sleepless Nights by Anne Weale (Harlequin Romance, excellent)

The Italian's Wife By Sunset by Lucy Gordon (Harlequin romance, haven't read yet, got good reviews)

Take Hold Of Tomorrow by Daphne Clair (Presents)

Love A Younger Man by Shelby Reed / Madison Hayes (erotica)

Just Sex by Susan Kay Law (novel, excellent)

One Summer by Karen Robards (novel, hot)

Stolen Summer by Anne Mather  (older Presents)  She wrote several newer ones with this theme, just can't think of them right now.

These are all books I've enjoyed through the years.  I'm sure there are more.  Maybe I'll remember them. 

 

Older heroes, there are a ton of those.  I'll try to think of some of my favorites.

I agree with Years by LaVyrle Spencer and Sleeping Beauty by Judith Ivory.  I loved both books.

There are 30 years between Simon and Alinor in Roselynde by Roberta Gellis. This is fabulous historical fiction for those who prefer accurate history.

Almost any Harlequin Romance by Anne Mather has the man 15-20 years older than the woman.  She is usually 17-19 years old.   I have a few on my bookshelf if you want to give them a try (I give 2-for-1 or better on Harlequins).

I like to think of these as Feb-June relationships :-)

in most of Diana Palmers books the H is much older than the h. Suzanne Brockmann's "The admirals bride"   the H is 55 and the h is in her late 20's or early 30's

In To Please A Lady (Susan Johnson) I understand he's 18 while she's in her 30's.  Haven't read it yet, but according to AAR, it has an A- rating and it's a Desert Isle Keeper.

Oh - I just remembered another one: Is that  a Moose in your Pocket? by Kim Green. 

"After being passed over for a promotion, and currently between boyfriends, thirtyish Jen Brenner figures it's time for a major life change. So it's goodbye to San Francisco and her sexy ex-boyfriend-and howdy to roughing it in the wilds of Montana...."

Susanna - You're welcome.  I love Jennifer Crusie.

Claudia - You are taxing my memory here.  It was mostly a Chick Lit book with a romance.  There were some funny scenes in the book and I liked it.

Any books with Max and Gina (I think Breaking Point is their story) in Suzanne's Brockmann's books. I think Max is like 15 years or so older than Gina.

And one of her other couples has an older female and younger male. It's the story with Mike Muldoon and for the life of me, I can't remember the female's name. Agggh.

Eliot's Banana by Heather Swain.  I just won this in a swap and I haven't gotten it yet or read it.  But it looked good on Amazon.  They have the search book feature and he appears to about 20yrs older than her.  It looks good.  I think it's more chick-lit than romance.  But I thought it looked good so I stole it.
