So, the hero of Lucien's Fall, a romance novel by Barbara Samuel, has just decided he is going to seduce the virgin heroine for fun and to annoy his propriety-fond father who will be annoyed his kiddie is a rake. He thinks it's a pity she'll have to be publicly ruined, but if he doesn't make it public, how else to let Daddy know and piss him off?

Ugh, ten pages in and I want to murder him already. Luckily, the heroine knows what he wants very well and treats him as a nuisance, but ugh - why would I want a vile, selfish, cruel human being as a hero? I never understood the fascination with bad boys - a person can be wild or immature or messed-up and that is all fine and has potential for a good future partner once he settles down/matures/heals. But if a person is bad and/or cruel, there is no sane possibility there and why on earth would you want him or view him as redemption material - he really does not deserve love in any way.

He also has a "jeweled gaze", whoch I think is supposed to be alluring but creeps me out instead because it makes me think he had his eyes plucked out and replaced a la ancient mummies.
