Im looking for romance ebooks where the man is the one in the right either he's been cheated on by his wife or partner or where hes generally treated like dirt but he comes out top in the end, Ive read a lot of books where the wife was the one wronged so thought i'd try for something different :)

Any help is much appreciated!! And I'll try and recommendations.

Thanks in advance :)

This guy in this book has not been cheated on but he is an underdog. Check it out: The Third Son: A Fantasy Historical Romance (Kings of Cardenas Series Book 1)

Dare I suggest my two novellas? They're both along those lines. One is actually a TRUE story. ;-)

A Time To Heal is a romance novella for 72p.

Here's the blurb.

Family Liaison Officer, Chloe Fullerton is helping hero pilot, Captain Steve Ewing, recuperate from injury after he landed his stricken plane, avoiding a major disaster.
Chloe's sworn off love ever since she lost the love of her life. But the spark between her and Steve makes her feel she may yet love again. There's turbulence ahead though--Steve's ex-wife is determined to wreck his and Chloe's blossoming relationship.

Novella approx 33,000 words.

I've also released a TRUE romance mystery novella called A Time for Change also for 72p.

Danielle Pires's life is going well. She has a boyfriend who wants to marry her and is building a reputation as a talented and hard-working interior designer. Keen to expand her portfolio, Danielle is delighted by a request to breathe life back into the Victorian Mansion that handsome Scott Jordache is renovating.
Her parents, meanwhile, have organised a surprise Caribbean cruise to give her a much-needed break.

Danielle sets sail only to discover Scott aboard the same ship, but mysteriously travelling under a pseudonym. Intrigued, she feels torn between mistrust and being drawn in by his charm.

Should she let herself fall for Scott or return to the security of the man she left at home?

33,000 words.

YesYes! Please consider reading Wild Water by Jan Ruth. Jack Redman is the wronged husband, what a refreshing change!

Two of my books have men who were wronged by women they loved. The third was just wronged by life in general. I'm only listing the first two.

Serendipity House
Rubies and Other Gems - the Novel

My debut novel, THE SECRET is a contemporary, romance with very much a character driven storyline. It is, in essence, a love story, but with quite a hard-hitting difference. And I would most certainly describe my male protagonist as a good guy.
Consider the ingredients... a murder, a generous handful of emotional conflict, blended with plenty of sexy, romantic intrigue, and you have a compelling read that will keep you glued to your Kindle until the bitter-sweet denouement.

A woman's book? Most certainly yes, but quite a number of men have enjoyed it too... indeed only a short while ago another gentleman submitted a very pleasing review for it.
Do take a look.
Best wishes and happy reading
Jan

UNTYING THE KNOT by Linda Gillard. Currently a bestseller on Kindle @ £1.90/$2.99

The Scottish hero is a traumatised war veteran (ex-bomb squad) whose wife walked out on him years ago. They divorced, but he still loves her.

And how does she feel about him?... "Everyone makes mistakes, but I sometimes think I've made more than most. Marrying Magnus was one of them. But the biggest mistake I ever made was divorcing him."

May I be so bold as to offer my own novel Saving Nathaniel by Jillian Brookes-Ward

Nathaniel is a good and decent man drowning in guilt and grief following the deaths of his wife and baby. Lost and alone, he is taken in hand by his new housekeeper. Initially seen as gruff and unapproachable, reticent and sometimes downright rude, he allows himself to be guided and encouraged by Megan until he slowly begins to come out of his shell.

check out Mary Middleton's For One Night Only. Mike is badly treated by his troubled wife.

If you are looking for good guy books try Jane (Heart's Desire Series). Best to read this one first as the plot in 1966 in London takes many twists, turns and has some funny moments. The second Jill (Heart's Desire Series) is a new story, now 1968 but with the same characters, featuring both good and bad men, who will Jill chose? Both in paperback and Kindle.

David Balaam says:
Columbus Day by David Balaam has a male lead. Gentle romantic story. Read first chapter free.
No sex, no violence, no Vampires - must be a good read'

Try this romantic novel with a touch of intrigue. It's a well paced story of life and hope after loss and despair. An ordinary man living an ordinary life until he loses it all, or so he thinks. . .

Try No More Mulberries, also available in paperback edition. In the beginning of this novel the reader's sympathy is with the wife, a Scots-born woman married to an Afghan doctor and living in quite difficult circumstances in Afghanistan. However, as the novel progresses and the reader discovers more about Dr Iqbal's past life he becomes a much more sympathetic character. Set amongst the grandeur of the foothills of the Hindu Kush against a backdrop of war No More Mulberries provides a fascinating insight into life in Afghanistan.

My hero Nicholas in The Apple Tree is definitely a good man who believes he is 'wronged' when the heroine fails to tell him she is already married. He is deeply hurt by this and convinced he cannot forgive her. But despite being gorgeous, eligible and sure of himself, he doesn't yet know his heart and really has to find out the hard way that it won't be ruled by his head. You can't help but fall a little bit in love with him!
