Favourite heroines

When reading a book the heroine is extremly important for me. I like all kinds of different heroines and when I think of some of my favourites the first name that comes to mind is Eve Dallas from the In Death series by J.D. Robb. Eve is a heroine that I adore and I want to know more and more about her even though I already read over 30 books with her as the heroine. Her strength, her fight against crime and her kindness when it counts are just fantastic and of course it doesn't hurt that she has the sexiest  ever at her side. 

Another heroine that I love is Maeve from "The Good Luck Girl/Leaving Unknown" by Kerry Reichs. She's no ordinary heroine and I enjoyed reading about every step of her journey. 
I also adore Jane from "See Jane Score" by Rachel Gibson, Delilah from "Chasing Stanley" by Deirdre Martin, Alexia from the Parasal Protectorate series by Gail Carriger, Blue from "Natural Born Charmer" by Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Laurel from "Savour the Moment" by Nora Roberts, Jaine from "Mr. Perfect" by Linda Howard, Jane from the Jane True series by Nicole Peeler, Mary from Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward and Melanie & Wanda from "The Host" by Stephenie Meyer. 
I'm sure that I missed to mention some but you can bet that I tend to reread books with my favourite heroines quiet regularly. 

Today I want to know who your favourite heroines are and why!


  1. I agree with you about Eve. I love the In Death series and she is such a remarkable heroine.

  2. Great questions! I would pick Mac from the Faefever series (I might or might not be obsessed with this series!). And it's not that she is extremely strong or smart but it was incredible to see her development in this series. She started as a Barbie girl, blond innocent and nothing more in her mind that the matching nail polish to her clothes. But the more the plot progress you see her changing and adjusting to the world she suddenly finds herself into. From Barbie Girl to a kick-ass heroin!

  3. Rachel Morgan The Hollows Series by Kim Harrison - she is strong and vulnerable

    Merry Gentry from LKH's Meredith Gentry Series - outsider in two worlds

    There is someone I really like and of course she is stuck in a brain crevasse.

  4. And Clare Frasier from Diana Gabaldon - She is wicked strong!

  5. I hardly ever like heoines, that's probably one of the reasons I more or less gave up reading straight romance.

    The three I like:

    Jane from Lover Unbound
    Harriet Pomeroy from Ravished by Amanda Quick (my all time favourite)
    Madeleine from Winter Garden by Adele Ashworth

  6. There are too many to name! Although I do often re-read the books staring my favorites. There's nothing like sinking into a story you know you'll enjoy.

  7. Ugh, I hate to sa that, but Eve Dallas somehow doesn't work for me. I like her, but she's not a favorite.

    I, too, like Jane from See Jane Score by Rachel Gibson and I also think Chelsea Ross, the scream queen from Rachel Gibson's Nothing But Trouble is pretty cool.

    I always had a weak spot for Molly Somerville (This Heart of Mine) and Lady Emma (Lady Be Good), both by SEP:

  8. Noooo! Not Chasing Stanley! Noooo! Uhhh, can you tell? Serious hot button book for me.

    As for heroines, I too, live Eve Dallas and Jane from SJS. I also really remember loving Bella from Jacob. Also, Abbie from Relentless. Oh how awesome is she?

    Seems like I could go on a lot about heroines, which really makes me happy, because I tend to be really hard on them. I basically expect perfection. Sad, but true. and of course, I'm far more forgiving of heroes. Also sad, but also true.
