Perhaps the most intriguing conundrum of hero-identification is the joy romance readers take in the "fractured hero": the ripped-up, torn apart, brought-to-his-knees alpha male. Once again, this is a phenomenon that has been widely interpreted in the light of presumed heroine-identification. Modleskt has argued that it represents a female revenge fantasy: ". .

What does it mean to a woman to feel—to want keenly to feel—what the male character feels as she reads?
