Ten top unlikely romantic heroes in fiction

Jenny Colgan is a novelist, journalist and occasional radio pundit. One of her top ten weird romantic heroes, as shared at the Guardian:
Dr Wilbur Larch in The Cider House Rules by John Irving

A man with a devastating romantic past who does nothing but the best for everyone he ever meets. An overlooked, ether-loving angel of Atticus Finch proportions: goodnight, you princes of Maine, you kings of New England.
Read about another entry on the list.

The Cider House Rules is among Kate Hamer's ten top books about adopted children.
