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 Pandora Ravenel
Book Title & Author: Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas
Why is this character your favorite (Feel free to include a favorite quote or scene)? I’m not going to stop talking about this book or these characters for awhile so bear with me. I LOVE Pandora. She’s so full of life and ideas that she quickly stood out to me as someone I could identify with. Pandora is witty and sassy but I don’t think she knows it. She certainly wasn’t aware of how much she meant to the people around her for the longest time. She has such an effect on those around her, including the reader that can’t really be explained. Pandora is that kind of character that you have to get to know yourself before you understand their unique personality. One of my favorite things about Pandora is her way of seeing things. Instead of seeing them like everyone else would, she puts her own spin on them. Take for example, her thoughts while she and her family are traveling to Gabriel’s family home to spend a week with them in order for Pandora to get to know the man she might have to marry.
After unwinding the cord, Pandora opened the book to a blank page near the back. She twisted the lower half of the pencil barrel until a nozzle with the lead emerged, and began to write.
JOURNEY TO HERON’S POINT
The Impending Matrimonial Doom of Lady Pandora Ravenel
Facts and Observations
#1 If people think you’re dishonored, it’s no different from actually having been dishonored, except you still don’t know anything.
#2 When you’ve been ruined, there are only two options: death or marriage.
#3 Since I am gravely healthy, the first option isn’t likely.
#4 On the other hand, ritual self-sacrifice in Iceland cannot be ruled out.
#5 Lady Berwick advises marriage and says Lord St. Vincent is “bred to the bill.” Since she once made the same remark about a stud horse she and Lord Berwick bought for their stable, I have to wonder if she’s looked in his mouth.
#6 Lord St. Vincent reportedly has a mistress.
#7 The word “mistress” sounds like a cross between mistake and mattress.
#8 The local guidebook doesn’t include even one unfavorable detail about Heron’s Point. It must be the most perfect town in existence.
#9 Or the author was trying to toady up to the Challons, who own half of Sussex.
#10 Dear God, they’re going to be insufferable.
#11 Sussex has many picturesque views.
#12 Looking at nature is boring.
An eccentric wallflower . . .
Most debutantes dream of finding a husband. Lady Pandora Ravenel has different plans.

But Gabriel finds the high-spirited Pandora irresistible. He’ll do whatever it takes to possess her, even if their marriage of convenience turns out to be the devil’s own bargain.
A perilous plot . . .

But soon she discovers that her entrepreneurial endeavors have accidentally involved her in a dangerous conspiracy—and only her husband can keep her safe. As Gabriel protects her from their unknown adversaries, they realize their devil’s bargain may just turn out to be a match made in heaven . . .
