Paranormal romance is becoming a big thing, and SFF publishers are trying to cash in because romance is such a big market. /shrug I've heard a lot of SFF fans complaining that a lot of that is too much like romance in that aspect. Even though Orbit doesn't seem to be a paranormal romance line, I guess she's just an author who follows the romance patterns.
Eh, there probably are a lot of disgruntled readers on that side. But I thought romance readers liked angst? Anyhow, yes, it's not so much the character that is the problem, because I don't think anyone argues that a real person couldn't have this combination of such traits, it's the treatment of the character by the author and the author's judgment of them that annoys people.
