I was thinking about those heroines who definitely go against the sweet, innocent type and absolutely captivate the reader. They might be very sexually experienced, just plain wild, or perhaps even have a violent or tortured past that has made them lose their emotional innocence. Perhaps they are pure in body but have impure motives. Or they are neither pure nor have pure motives. They are the women that could possibly be a villain in another book or have enough anti-hero in them to make them interesting. Which ones stand out in your mind? These are the ones that I like. Feel free to elaborate on why you added them to the list.

1.Madeleine Dumais-Winter Garden by Adele Ashworth
2.Ghislaine de Lorny-A Rose At Midnight by Anne Stuart
3.Lady Alyx-The Rake by Mary Jo Putney
4.Serena Riverton-Forbidden by Jo Beverley
5.Lily Lawson-Then Came You by Lisa Kleypas
6.Sophia Sydney-Lady Sophia's Lover
7.Anne Wilder-All Through The Night by Connie Brockway
8.Tippy-Lawless by Diana Palmer
9.Can't remember her name-The Prince of Midnight by Laura Kinsale
10.Elizabeth Chatworth-Velvet Angel by Jude Deveraux (she's a manhater so that's why she's on the list)
11.Jessye Kane-Never Love A Cowboy by Lorraine Heath
12.Prisoner of Desire-Johanna Lindsey (basically she raped a man-under duress but it was rape)
13.Emmaline-The Enchantment by Kristin Hannah (I really didn't like her at first but she eventually won me over)
13.Moonlight Becomes You by Meagan McKinney
14.Lady Emma-Once Upon A Scandal by Barbara Dawson Smith
15.Lady Julianna Myfleet-Wayward Widow by Nicola Cornick
16.Lady Lilith-A Game of Scandal by Kathryn Smith
