QUESTION OF THE WEEK: When reading romances, which type of heroine to you prefer and why? Do you like the kick-ass chicks, damsels in distress, a mix or maybe another type?


I like a girl who can take care of herself but is not too stubborn to ask for help when she needs it. A few of my favorite kick ass heroines are Cat from the Night Huntress series, Chess Putnam from the Downside series and Kate Daniels from the Kate Daniels series. They're strong and confident but not cold, I can't stand an icy heroine who never thaws out. 
That's not to say that damsels in distress aren't wonderful to read, I love historical romance as well and you'll usually find this trait in heroines in that sub genre. But I probably lean more towards the kick-ass side. ;) 
How about you? Do you like your heroines able to keep up with the heroes or do prefer a white knight to ride in for the rescue?

I agree with Cat & Kate Daniels! I think Claire from the Outlander series is my favorite heroine. She's a very strong woman who never lets life break her spirit. I love to read about her.
