Those Wicked, Naughty Heroines!

We always focus heavily on the heroes, especially the alpha male heroes. I thought today it might be fun to delve into heroines instead! Some of the heroines in my book are quite naughty (in the best possible way of course). Mia from Mia’s Cop Craving is on a mission to fulfill her personal fantasy. Along the way, she gets more than a little naughty and learns about herself along the way.

I recently read two books where the heroines really stood out. One was Seducing CinderellaΒ by Gina Maxwell.Β I really liked the heroine and her vulnerabilities. Her journey to happily-ever-afterΒ was both believable and fun….and sexy! I know many of you have undoubtedly read Cherise Sinclair, but I just jumped in. I read To Command and Collar and wow…wicked, naughty heroines everywhere. The whole series now beckons.

My newest release, His Need Her Desire, features a heroine discovering that a little bondage and some paddling can add a big dose of spice to her encounters with Marcus. Naughty, naughty Tabitha!

His Need, Her Desire

Tabitha Quinn didn’t come to Hawaii to be spanked. But when vacationing businessman Marcus Granger saves her from drowning, they begin an affair that moves from the beach to the bedroom and straight into an experience Tabitha’s never had before: dark-haired, blue-eyed Marcus is a dominant, and spanking is just the beginning. The sex is intense, the emotion even more so, until they both must decide if this is a holiday fling or the real thing.

His Need, Her Desire is available for preview and purchase on the following sites.

  1. I cannot honestly think of a wicked heroine I have fallen in love with. I did think the Witch in Sleeping Beauty was misunderstood however. I mean, how many of us wouldn’t like to send our prettier competition away? πŸ™‚
    Thanks so much for being a part of the hop and for your giveaway!
    Best wishes,

  2. A heroine is supposed to be admired. But she can also be naughty. However, I can’t think of one. Maybe Brenda in my book Litria. She’s not really naughty, but she does have sex with a female Zxxtergin (the name for the characters I invented.)

  7. Wicked heroine I feel in love with? Which one DIDN’T I fall in love with!!
    Sorry, I have always loved the bad girl.

    I always thought the witches in stories got the raw deal. I’d love a story where the knight shows up to rescue the Princess and ends up with the Witch instead. So Maleficent, the Wicked Witch of the West, Nancy (from the Craft), Angelique, those are the ones for me.

    Actually. Let the knight and princess have the happy ever after together. Let me have the witch (or her have me, not picky here)! πŸ˜‰

    Glad to be in this blogfest with you!

  8. I love wicked heroines. Yes, the Shadowlands series does abound with wicked heroines. I loved Olivia from Dakota Trace’s Doms of Chicago series.

  10. We love flawed heroines, especially ones with a wicked side. They’re so much more relatable because we all have wicked sides. Cookie cutter protagonists are just boring. So, rock on wicked heroines!!!

  11. My favorite will always be Rowena from Louise Bagshawe’s “Career Girls”.

    One I can think of that I hated and she was more a secondary character but still prominent in the story and that was Artemis in the Dark Hunter series , she was so bad ok on the verge of being evil but at the same time. she made laugh as well.

  21. Is it wrong to think Mother Gothel from “Tangled” is hot? Before she turns to dust, that is.

  22. Thanks for the great blog hop.

    There are so many; some are: Cat from the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost, the ladies from Kresley Cole’s IAD series, Katra from Sherrilyn Kenyon’s DH series, & Sookie Stackhouse from Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse series πŸ™‚
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  24. The first romance I remember reading was Shanna by Kathleen Woodiwiss & the heroine, Shanna was a spoiled rotten brat, but I loved her. Ever since, I’ve loved to read about strong women & the men who tamed them.

    I have always liked the wicked one πŸ™‚ I just reread some Larissa Ione, so Sin is the latest wicked one that comes to mind first πŸ™‚


  27. For some reason, I do not think of my heroines as wicked. I think their stand up for what the believe in & be strong & opinionated is a good thing. Thank you for the giveaway!
