Vonda Sinclair | Strong and Unusual Heroines
Author Guest / October 14, 2011

I confess, I love creating heroines in my Scottish historical romances who are extraordinarily tough, resilient, and a bit outside the norm for historical romance. My heroines need to be strong in order to stand up to my Highland warrior heroes. These women have lived through difficult times or traumatic events before the opening of the story and are stronger for it. Though Gwyneth, the heroine of MY FIERCE HIGHLANDER, is only twenty-three, she’s well beyond the school-girl stage. Caught in a horrible scandal, she’s forced to leave her home in England and journey to the Highlands of Scotland. There she has a child out of wedlock and marries a man she wishes she’d never seen. Now a widow, a mother and a healer, she’s become a survivor and a resourceful woman any of us might admire… all for the sake of her young son, so that he might have a better life one day. But when she saves the wounded chief of an enemy clan, she risks her life for the first time. To her, this man is worth the risk because she knows he wants peace as she does, and there’s something about him she can’t turn away…
