Favorite Character Friday: Beth!

Favorite Character Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Adria's Romance Reviews that gives readers a chance to celebrate their favorite characters, because 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 everyone 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: Elizabeth Lacey

Book Title & Author: I Dared the Duke by Anna Bennett

Why is this character your favorite (Feel free to include a favorite quote or scene)? In historical romances the woman is almost always at a disadvantage. She has to rely on her intelligence to survive and Elizabeth “Beth” Lacey was a good example of a character that does just that. She found a way to outwit Alex when she first met him and she had a bold and sassy personality that added to her intelligence. One of my favorite scenes is when Alex thinks Beth is going to make him a scandalous proposition and instead she surprises him with a very unselfish request:

“Grant your grandmother three wishes.”
What the devil? “I beg your pardon?”
“That is my price,” she said.
“My grandmother doesn’t require three wishes,” he said, scoffing. “She has everything she could possibly want.”
Miss Lacey propped a shapely hip on the arm of the chair beside him. The mysterious smile that lit her face sent a shiver down his spine. “These are very specific sorts of wishes,” she said. “You must indulge your grandmother on three separate occasions of her choosing.”
“In case you hadn’t noticed, I’m not a leprechaun.”
“Oh, I noticed,” she said, sounding more like a skilled courtesan than a prim companion. “Have no fear, these wishes shall be well within your powers. All that is required of you is time…”
Hell, he didn’t like the sound of that.
“… spent in your grandmother’s company…”
“… engaged in activities that please her.”
Dear Jesus. He glanced longingly at his empty brandy glass and raked a hand through his hair. Apparently Miss Lacey wanted to teach him a lesson—and not the tantalizing kind he’d hoped for.

Book Cover/Blurb:
Alexander Savage, the Duke of Blackshire, is known throughout the ton for three things: the burn scars on his neck, his ornery disposition, and the trail of broken hearts behind him. None of which would concern Miss Elizabeth Lacey in the least―if she weren’t living under his roof. As his grandmother’s companion, Beth is all too concerned with the moody and compelling duke. Incensed by his plans to banish the sweet dowager duchess to the country, Beth refuses to do his bidding. If Alex wants her help, he’s going to have to take her dare…and grant her three wishes.

Alex adores his grandmother, which is precisely why she must leave. A string of unfortunate incidents has him worried for the safety of everyone around him―including the dowager’s loyal and lovely companion, Beth. But the notorious wallflower isn’t as meek as she appears, and as their battle of wills heats up, so does Alex’s desire. He’s dangerously close to falling in love with her…and revealing secrets he’d rather keep hidden. How can he convince her that his darkest days are behind him―and that, for the first time in forever, his heart is true?
