Why a weekly meme? Because really, with millions of books out there and more coming out every week, characters are like potato chips, you can't have just one.
How it works: Every week you pick on of your favorite characters and tell every one who it is, what book they're from and WHY they're one of your favorite characters. Be sure to include the blurb and book cover as well! Share the love and maybe someone will read that same book and see why that character is one of your favorites! Unlike the Book Boyfriend meme (which was a great meme), your Favorite Character Fridays choice can be male or female!
Be sure to link back to Adria's Romance Reviews and share the link there in the comments (If the meme gets bigger, then a linky form will be added).
Favorite Character: Jillian Cardiff
Book Title & Author: Rogue Rider by Larissa Ione
Why is this character your favorite? I have a few favorites by Larissa but Jillian stands out particularly because she's a survivor. She survived a horrific demon attack and then moved to the middle of nowhere to get away from the reminders, only to find herself in the middle of a war between heaven and hell, literally. Then she has to go and fall in love with one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, also known as Pestilence.
Jillian Cardiff came to this remote mountain town to forget the demon attack that almost killed her. Instead, she rescues-and falls for-a gorgeous stranger who has no memory of anything other than his name. Handsome, charming, and protective, Reseph seems like the kind of man whom Jillian can trust. But with hints of a troubling history of his own, he's also the kind of man who can be very dangerous . . .
Reseph may not know why he mysteriously appeared in Jillian's life, but he knows he wants to stay. Yet when Jillian's neighbors are killed, and demon hunters arrive on the scene, Reseph fears that he's putting Jillian in danger. And once it's revealed that Reseph is also Pestilence, the Horseman responsible for ravaging the world, he and Jillian must face the greatest challenge of all: Can they forget the horrors of a chilling past to save the future they both desire?
