Favorite Character Friday: Survivor Heroines


Favorite Character Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Adria's Romance Reviews that gives readers a chance to celebrate their favorite characters!

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 one 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!

Favorite Character: Lady Clarissa

Book Title & Author: The Study of Seduction by Sabrina Jeffries

Why is this character your favorite (Feel free to include a favorite quote or scene)? Okay when I think of Lady Clarissa I automatically think of the word survivor because that's what she is. She has endured something horrible and yet she survived and more than that, she thrived. She didn't shrink into herself or become a pity case for Edwin. She had such strength and saucy wit that I couldn't help but admire her, even though technically she stole my man. That's okay though, she's so cool that I didn't mind too much. After all, one book boyfriend gets "taken" and a hundred more take his spot.

I loved how Clarissa could manage to one up Edwin whenever they were arguing. She really frustrated a man who was so used to having the upper hand and control of every situation. To me that was a pretty awesome trait for a woman in Regency England to have because let's face it, men had almost all the power back then so a lady needed every advantage she could get!

Book Cover/Blurb:

When Edwin Barlow, the Earl of Blakeborough, agrees to help his best friend’s impetuous ward, Lady Clarissa Lindsey, in her time of need, he knows he’s in for trouble. He’s been hunting for someone to wed, and she’ll just get in the way. Although captivated by the witty, free-spirited beauty, he fears she’d be all wrong as a wife...if she would even take such a gruff cynic for her husband. Yet he wants nothing more than to have her for his own.

Clarissa has no intention of marrying anyone—not Edwin, whom she’s sure would be an overbearing husband, and certainly not the powerful French diplomat stalking her. But when matters escalate with the diplomat, she chooses Edwin’s gallant offer of a marriage between friends in hopes that it will deter her stalker. She expects nothing more than an amiable union, but their increasingly tempestuous kisses prove more than she bargained for. When her stalker’s vow to expose the lovers’ deepest secrets threatens to destroy their blossoming attraction, will their tenuous bond withstand public ruin, or will Edwin lose all that’s important to him to protect his bride?
