Who is your favorite female lead character? And why? (And yes, of course,
you can name more than one . . . I always have trouble narrowing down these
things to one name, why should I force you to?)
This is a tough question. I have so many favorite books and series that it seems unfair to leave anybody off my list so I'm going to limit myself to one modern and one classic heroine.
Number one is Eve Dallas from J.D. Robb's In Death series. She's tough, a survivor, and she always gets her man whether it's her sexy husband or a ruthless killer.
Jane Eyre makes my list as well. She was also a survivor and she didn't let the heartless, condescending people in her life get her down. She also got her man.
If I wasn't limiting myself, I'd also name Mary Boleyn as she was depicted in The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillipa Gregory.
