You’re no damsel in distress – when the going gets tough, you get going. Cops, FBI agents, firefighters and other strong characters are your favorite…and we’re not just talking about heroes. Get your action fix with royal bodyguard lieutenant Angelina Mateja in Alec’s Royal Assignment by Amelia Autin or disavowed British spy Chandler McCallister in Ripped: A Blood Money Novel by Edie Harris.
If you picked mostly B: Woman in Charge
Who’s the boss? You are! You have a take-charge personality with confidence and drive. Read about successful heroines who are more than a match for powerful heroes, like PR guru Melanie Costello in That Night with the CEO by Karen Booth, and Lindsay Evans’s heroine in Affair of Pleasure by Nichelle Wright, who runs a successful management consulting team with childhood friend and charming ladies’ man Wolfe Diallo.
You like the simple life and are more comfortable at a backyard barbecue than a fancy restaurant or gala. Family, friends and community are the things closes to your hearts – and a heartwarming romance is right up your alley. Find other Girl Next Door heroines in books like farmer Molly McNair in Molly’s Garden by Roz Denny Fox, widowed soon-to-be mom Annie Marshall in Falling for the Mom-to-Be by Jenna Mindel and high school sweetheart Laura Drake The Rancher’s Surprise Son by Christine Wenger.
If you picked mostly D: Woman of Mystery
When things go bump in the night, you bump back! Your air of mystery may be hiding an otherworldly secret…one that is absolutely irresistible. Read about powerful paranormal heroines like Keeleycael, the Red Queen, in Gena Showalter’s The Darkest Touch or a gorgeous goddess named Aurora in Goddess of Fate by Alexandra Sokoloff.
Your love of all things elegant and classic make you the perfect noble lady heroine in a historical romance. You would be at home at a ball, enjoying the London Season or rubbing shoulders with Jane Austen. But you’re no wilting wallflower, either. Find your historical match in Elisabeta di Nofri, a young noblewoman whose love of thrill-seeking is second only to rake Archer Crawford’s in Bronwyn Scott’s Rake Most Likely to Thrill, or determined heiress Adelaide Ashfield in Marriage Made in Shame by Sophia James.
