Our Favorite Heroines
(Remember that (+A) (+S) (+R) means that (+Alexa), (+Sharon), or (+Racquel) agrees with that pick!)
It's In His Kiss by Julia Quinn - I love how she likes to know everyone's business and manage it. She's ornery and silly and sweet. And she's always in search of an adventure.
2) Alesandra from Castles by Julie Garwood - She's a freakin' princess, but she's also clever, stubborn and brave. I adore how she loves to make lists too, and always manages to look out for other people.
3) Jade from Guardian Angel by Julie Garwood - Jade is just a bad-ass female heroine. Early on, we know a truth about her that her hero does not and it makes her really cool in my eyes. I love that she's so tough but she's also clearly got a vulnerable side.
About That Night by Julie James - Smart, successful, confident, just like all of Julie James's heroines but I went with Rylann. Sure the lost and confused heroines are also realistic; I don't aim and look up to lost and confused. Besides, if all the heroes are confident men, well that's how I want my heroines too! We're just as badass as the males!
2) Ella from Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas - (Ok all of the Travis series ladies ROCK: Liberty, Haven & Ella) Another badass who didn't grow up in the best circumstances but she got over it. She has a career she loves and she's there for her sad troubled family.
3) Penelope from Romancing Mister Bridgerton by Julia Quinn (+S) - A shy heroine done right! While Penelope WAS shy, she *knew* herself and how great she was and never pitied herself. I couldn't ask for more.
Proof by Seduction by Courtney Milan - She's strong, scrappy, and inventive, and she doesn't believe in taking crap from anyone. She has self-respect and is protective of those she loves.
2) Katsa from Graceling by Kristin Cashore (+A) - Katsa is totally fierce. She's very different from me in a lot of ways, but I love what a unique character she is. Plus, she can kick your ass twelve ways from Sunday. And that's just awesome.
3) Annique from The Spymaster's Lady by Joanna Bourne. It's been too long since I read this one for me to go into any detail. But as proven by my last two picks, I love a strong heroine, and Annique is no exception. She is fantastic!
