Love 2 win the book.....it really sounds soooo good...firstname.lastname@example.org
Congrats on your success! Books sound great!
book sounds great -- love it when the damsel turns out to be the one to come to the rescue after all. :)
That little ol' Southern girl, Scarlet O'Hara of Gone With The wind.
If I understand your question correctly, and you mean from books I've read, I would have to name Stephanie Plum. Although she's supposed to be a private investigator in the books by Janet Evanovich, she always tends to get herself in some type of jam, and needs to be rescued by someone. When I'm in the mood for light reading, I can always cound on Janet to lift my spirits!! Speaking of spirits, sort of, I haven't read any of your books, but would love to read Tempted. I also plan on reading the other two in the series. I love the cover as well. Very well done!!
Congrats on the success with your novels and your future success. Thanks for a chance to win.
This series is new to me! It sounds SO great - always a reason to try out a new (for me) series!
Still thinking about who my favorite damsel in distress character is, very interesting question
My favorite non-traditional damsel is distress is my youngest daughter, Courtney. She is so petite & delicate looking that people always underestimate her. She stands up & fights for what is right. She was assaulted & robbed by point of gun. She fought her attacker & got up & chased him down the street. One of my friends said she is just like her mother. That was the greatest complement he could have given me. The attacker was never caught. But we do keep an eye out for him...God forbid if we ever catch him!
I wanted to say Scarlett O'Hara, but since she has already been mentioned, I will say Jenny in Rosemary Rogers Sweet, Savage Love.
I have read about many damsels in distress but the non-traditional part has
I can't think of a damsel in distress in particular, but I
I'd love to read these books they sound very entertaining!
I haven't read this series before. I would love to win.
I would love to win these books, Thanks for giving me a chance to win them they sound interesting.
Have you ever seen the movie "Ever After" with Drew Barrymore? I love the end of the movie when the prince comes riding in on his horse to rescue her and she already rescued herself and he feels kinda stupid about it. Very cute! Your books sound great and I wish you the best of luck!
I would love to win! Sounds great!
I agree with Renee about EVER AFTER... love that movie and how Drew Barrymore's character saves herself... I am drooling over that cover for TEMPTED! Thanks for the chance to win!
I'm going to name Gin Blanco, from Jennifer Estep's Elemental Assassins series, as a non-traditional damsel in distress. She is a kick-ass heroine, but she also is very much in need of saving! Thanks for visiting today. I’ve read fantastic reviews for Tempted.
Excellent series. I can't wait to sink my teeth into Demetrius :).
Non traditional damsel.. from recent film, if that counts,
i like the covers and add them to my collection of authors book i love new books
I really like Mac Lane from the Fever series. She is no damsell in distress although she had a lot to be distressed about. I like watched her grow stronger and better as the series progessed.
Cant wait to read these!
I have really enjoyed this series and cannot wait to read Tempted.
This sounds like a great story! I enjoy stories where the heroine finds her inner strength! It always makes you feel more capable yourself. We all have inner strength and it usually shows up right when we least expect it.
I don't think I have a favorite since most of the books I read the woman kick some serious butt, sometimes more than the men.
Sounds like two amazing books. I would love to win and read them.
Definitely Stephanie Plum.
Lots of romance books have damsels in distress so it's hard to pick one favorite; and now those damsels develop spine most of the time.
I'm having a hard time with the damsel in distress as I
I agree with Stephanie Plum and I like it when Ranger comes to the rescue, with another car or uncuffing her from the shower.
Your books sound like Percy Jackson for the grown up set. :D
I am going to say Ayla in Clan of the Cave Bear. Not everyone considers it a romance but there is a love story there and she definitely wasn't typical lol.
How about Hermione from Harry Potter? She is smarter than Harry and everyone else....
I love Tori from Sherrilyn Kenyon's Acheron. Thanks for the giveaway. I was at Borders and saw Marked on the shelf and another woman grabbed it before I could get to the shelf! Darn!
What gorgeous cover art! I want to see, I mean know more. :)
I keep wanting to pick this one up but I have to wait to get more book money..lol I broke the budget this year.
I WOULD LOVE TO WIN!!! AND LOVE THE COVER!!!!
My non-traditional heroine is Riley Jensen from Riley Jensen, Guardian series by Keri Arthur. Riley is a were. All she wanted was a normal life with children, house, and a white picket fence. Instead, she ended up becoming a Guardian against her will and has to stop supernatural and god-like bad guys.
I enjoyed your post. It is a nice thing when an author can bring about the developement of a character to show the unknown and often unexpected strength within.
This series is awesome! I love Greek mythology and the way
This book sunds wonderful. I can't wait to read it. Congrats on your success and I can't wait to read more of your books later as well.
I enjoyed reading your article and found it to be informative and to the point. Thank you for not rambling on and on just to fill the page.
