Tortured Heroes

It might just be the nurturer in me, but I love reading a good tortured hero. All of the heroes on this list have suffered deeply in an emotional sense, whether it be abuse, lost love, poor self-esteem, PTSD, or something else that has profoundly affected their lives. Some may be dark and brooding, while others may be covering up their pain with a devil-may-care attitude, but in the end the love of a good woman helps all of them to overcome.
