Strong, Capable Women Can Be Sexy

While each of my books is unique, there is one thing that is consistent in every story I write—the heroines are strong, capable women. Now, this doesn’t mean the women are invincible or without flaws. No, they have faced whatever trials have come up in their lives and became stronger in the end because of it. Usually these women are the most resistant to allowing love into their hearts—for various reasons, mostly because of bad experiences in their past.

The fun part in writing these types of women is that love finds them when they least expect it, and in the end the people they fall for end up complementing who and what they are, making them stronger than they ever believed possible.

So, no matter if it’s a sheltered abuse victim finding her confidence or a high-ranking female soldier learning it’s okay to show her softer side in front of others, these women have real problems. But they learn to accept who they are and make the most of it. My hope is that every woman can find the confidence buried deep within her and become strong, too.

Who are some of your favorite strong, capable heroines? Why?

Check out my strong heroines in Blaze of Secrets, Frozen Desires, and Convincing the Cougar. Available now on all online retailers.

About Jessie Donovan
Jessie Donovan wrote her first story at age five, and after discovering the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey in junior high, realized that people actually wanted to read stories like those floating around inside her head. From there on out, she was determined to tap into her over-active imagination and write a book someday.
After living abroad for five years and earning degrees in Japanese, Anthropology, and Secondary Education, she buckled down and finally wrote her first full-length book. While that story will never see the light of day, it laid the world-building groundwork of what would become her debut paranormal romance, Blaze of Secrets.
Jessie loves to interact with readers. When not reading or traipsing around some foreign country on a shoestring, she can often be found on Facebook and Twitter. Check out her pages below:

Convincing the Cougar Blurb:
Kian Murray is a cougar-shifter clan leader with a problem–he has a limp. Despite earning the injury protecting a group of cubs, he feels helpless. His clan and mate deserves someone hearty and whole, and he’s nothing more than a liability. The best thing he can do is give up his clan and his mate and find a way to start over.
Trinity Perez-Murray refuses to watch her mate give up his clan because of a small limp. After four months of trying and failing to bring him back from the edge, she only has one card left to play–she’s going to seduce her mate. But just as her charms start to pay off, she and Kian are attacked by a group of unusual shifters.
Now it’s up to Kian to help fight off the intruders. But in the heat of the moment, will his alpha instincts return and release the warrior inside?
