Do you like heroines who have a checkered past? Do you like a heroine who has a checkered present? How much are you willing to overlook in the heroine’s journey to redemption?
As you can see from the blurb above, Annie Payton has a past she is trying to live down. So her bad-girl persona is in her past. Annie’s Hope is now available in paperback on Amazon and will release tomorrow in ebook form on these platforms.
While I was writing this post, Angela Ruth Strong had a post about a pregnant heroine. One of my bad-girl heroines, Kelsey Reynolds, in A Baby to Call Ours, the sixth book in my Front Porch Promises series, is pregnant. She has a lot of guilt about the situation and considered an abortion. When the idea came to me, I hesitated to write the story. Besides my bad-girl heroine, I wondered about a modern-day marriage of convenience. Would that work? I’m glad I did. I’ve had a lot of positive feedback for the book.
Now I’m ready to write the last book in my Kellersburg series, and this time I’m contemplating writing a heroine whose bad-girl persona is still going strong. My innocent hero isn’t ready for this headstrong worldly woman.
Would you find this type of heroine offensive, or would you be willing to give her a chance to find the right path for her life? I’d love your feedback.
