Light My Fire by Kristina Knight
Lily MacIntyre's life is offtrack, and she knows exactly how
to right it: shed her America's sweetheart image in a big
way. Getting down and dirty in a limo with rocker Nate
Lansford seems like the perfect solution. Plus, she's had a
mad crush on him practically since birth. The only problem?
Nate is her brother's best friendâ€¦and he doesn't see her as
anything other than a surrogate little sister.
Great post, Kristina! Loved Little House on the Prairie! One of my favorite fictional heroines was a book character-Trixie Belden. Just loved her crime solving skills! (Jennifer Lowery Kamptner 9:18am June 3, 2014)
I would have to say Stephanie Plum, because her life is simple, yet complicated, but she can handle it. She's on her own, and has her own place. She has great friends, and great lovers. Her Family is a little crazy, but they love her unconditionally. Her life in general speaks to me, because I wish that I could be so fortunate in certain areas of my life. I wish I could be more specific, but to answer more would be very painful for me. (Peggy Roberson 9:23am June 3, 2014)
Too many to list, but Laura's one of them. Jo March. Trixie Belden. Your Esmerelda. My own Grace Elliot. Fun post! (Liz Flaherty 9:34am June 3, 2014)
I remember Trixie, Jennifer - she was a HOOT!
Peggy, that is true. I do love Stephanie's no-nonsense approach to (most) things....and I hope you find the honest, accepting relationships you are looking for in more than a book. Good luck to you!
Aw, Liz, you gave Esme a shout-out! I love you for that! Your Grace is DEFINITELY on my list, along with Jo from Little Women and even Bridget Jones! :) (Kristina Knight 1:09pm June 3, 2014)
I used to love Little House when I was younger. But since then, I've gotten into paranormals. Pheobe from Charmed has become a big favorite. In books, there are too many to name, especially from Sherrilynn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series. (Shawn Dalton-smith 9:26pm June 3, 2014)
I have so many. But, they all have similar personalities. They are tough on the outside but vulnerable on the inside. Spunky too, like Laura. I loved how she would light into Nellie. I like a heroine who won't let herself be cowed by anyone but shows her vulnerability to those she loves. (Debbie Kelly 2:53pm June 4, 2014)
