The hero in A Most Unconventional Match by Julia Justiss stutters.  It was an excellent book too. 

Also the hero in one of Jayne Ann Krentz's earliest novels, Double Dealing (written under the name Jayne Castle).  It's collectible and not easy to come by however.

Also I believe Freddy, the hero of Cotillion by Georgette Heyer stutters.

edited to say that the heroine of Heyer's The Convenient Marriage stutters.

It's not weird. For some reason I have a fondness for deaf heroines for no particular reason.

And, Mary, please give us some titles of the best with deaf heroines.  That sounds interesting too.

The hero from Untie My Heart by Judith Ivory has a stutter that he usually hides well.  The heroine catches on though.  And it's a great book.

Deaf Heroine-

Anne's Song by Catherine Anderson

 

It is really good because no one know she is deaf and treats her like an idiot

 

Also Catherine Anderson has one where the main character who has aphasia (brain damage from a fall) which I think makes her stutter a little.

Plus, in Beguiled by Susan Spencer Paul she has speach problems--though not a stutter but a low gravely voice!

Beguiled (Harlequin Historical, No 408)

Mouth to Mouth by Erin McCarthy is also one of my favorites.  I finally swapped it last month to make room for new reads.  That is why I was interested in the deaf Heroine books.  thanks for the nice list, Mary.

I loved Mouth to Mouth.  I sent it out here and missed it so I grabbed one at the FOL sale.   I reread it right away.  I don't know why I love that book so much but I do.
