In ‘The Protector’s Promise,’ a LADIES OF THE STONE story included in an upcoming anthology, the heroine is a no-nonsense Scottish lass who doesn’t take no for an answer. In fact, each of the females characters from Scottish romance authors Eliza Knight, Madeline Martin and Lori Ann Bailey, in their attempt to protect the Heart of the Stone, kick some serious bootie.
Being the serial TV show binger watcher (see here and here) that I am, I envisioned Sookie learning to deal with vampires and Amberle’s great sacrifice as I wrote my own story. Some of these fan favorites, like Gemma, we love to hate. And others are simply bad-ass female characters like Arya Stark. Here are five of my favorites:
Olivia Pope, Scandal
Sookie Stackhouse, True Blood/Sookie Stackhouse Series
Arya (& Brienne), Game of Thrones
Gemma, Sons of Anarchy
Amberle, The Shannara Chronicles
