Does beauty matter in a heroine? I'm not talking about knock-em dead gorgeous beauty. This doesn't come out of left field for me. One of the heroine's in one of my WIP has a facial scar that she's really hung-up on. It's a factor only to her, the heroes have their own problems.
It got me thinking about stories where the heroine is described as plain or just not beautiful except to the hero. I'm sure I've read stories where the heroine has a scar, but I can't remember the name of any specific books.
When I'm reading, I do envision the heroine, but scars wouldn't matter to me.
So would a scar or bad scars matter to you?
