Reader's Enjoy and while you are reading it , have a think about who your'e Chick Lit Heroine Is ?
How Strong Should a Chick Be?
For Chick Lit Month, I’m happy to visit
Paula’s blog to discuss the strength of Chick Lit heroines. Do you prefer a
heroine who’s strong and independent, pulling her own weight in relationships?
Or do you like a softer heroine who needs protection and guidance from an alpha
As a feminist, athlete, and single
woman, I definitely prefer a strong heroine—less “chick” and more “woman”. I
like heroines who are intelligent and tough, while also maintaining feminine
traits of intuition, caring, and a dose of vulnerability.
In Chick Lit romances, the strength of
the heroine obviously influences the dominance of the hero. A lot of women like
the strong, silent type who whooshes in to rescue and save his lady. I admit a
muscular alpha man can be quite appealing, but I also like a sense of balance
in romantic relationships, in which the partners support and influence each
other in positive ways.
