Grace Burrowes, Katie MacAllister & Shana Galen want to know:


Which Type Of Historical Romance Heroine Are You?

#1 What word best describes you?

a) effervescent
b) nonconfrontational (mostly)
c) stealthy

#2 My favorite hobby is …

a) comparative study of the male form
b) looking after my darling baron
c) target practice

#3 What is the perfect late night snack?

a) bread, cheese, meats, lemon tarts … whatever can be liberated from the kitchen
b) the baron’s kisses
c) ratafia, shaken not stirred

#4 My ideal man must have …

a) a sublime derriere
b) an aptitude for growing hardy, contrary flowers
c) brains

#5 What accessory do you never leave home without?

a) my corset (large bosoms are such a trial)
b) my composure
c) my pistol


If you choose mostly As … then you are as sparkling and resourceful as Her Serene Royal Highness Dagmar from The Truth About Leo by Katie MacAlister. Dagmar may have been raised in a strictly formal manner, but she’s never let that stop her from pursuing anything that catches her interest. She’s a bit quirky, marches to her own drummer, and has a fine, fine appreciation of the manly form.

If you choose mostly Bs … then you are clearly the stuff a baroness is made of, much like Millicent, from The Traitor. Milly is sweet, fierce, determined, and brave but slow to trust. Sebastian, Baron St. Clair, is ALSO sweet, fierce, determined and brave, and relentless when it comes to protecting those he cares for. Alas for both Sebastian and Milly, an enemy stalks them who is not sweet. By the time Milly is done with Sebastian’s enemies, they are not very brave either. So if you chose mostly B’s, the bad guys better steer mighty clear of you!

If you choose mostly Cs … then you are equipped to be a master spy like Jane Bonde from Love and Let Spy by Shana Galen. Jane is smart, cunning, and loyal, but she has her weaknesses too. Her latest weakness goes by the name Dominic Griffyn. Planning a wedding and defeating a villain intent upon the destruction of England is tricky, but if you’re the sort who multitasks easily, then you too have Jane’s unique skills and panache.

    Mostly ‘B’. I love the idea of being a spy. Scorpio’s make great detectives too.

      Hi Maggi,
      You must like those action-adventure movies and books. That must be why you wrote your “Spies of Mayfair” series.

    • ginaconkle2013

      Looks like the spy mistress heroine wins again. I hope you enjoy Shana Galen’s new book.

    • ginaconkle2013

      Hi Sandi,
      Thanks. Yes, I chose 2 “Bs”, 2 “Cs”, and 1 “A”. Does being all over the board make us split personalities? 😀

  2. ki pha

    Fun!!!! I would have thought I’ll be an Operative since I absolutely can’t wait for the next Spy book but I’m a Royal. That dang question about “sublime derriere”….. Ha! Now that threw me off. It’s just hilarious~ 😀

    • ginaconkle2013

      Now you have another book to add to your TBR list. Each heroine sounds like fun and will be great to read. Thanks for stopping by the blog!

  3. crystal martin

    I’m mostly A. After reading the description I’m ok with that! 🙂

    • ginaconkle2013

      Crystal, the world needs connoisseurs of the male form!

  4. sheryl

    I am a few of each, but I got more B’s than anything.

    • ginaconkle2013

      Hi Sheryl,
      Yes, I was a smattering of each. Not sure where that puts me except as a reader who needs to get all 3 books.

  5. bettysunflower

    I am mostly “B” and real comfortable with it. ;o) I am looking forward to reading Grace’s next release!! I’m sure I will identify with our heroine.

    • ginaconkle2013

      Yes, Grace’s upcoming novel sounds heart wrenching and poignant. She really knows how to grab the heartstrings with her characters.

  6. Barbara Monajem

    I’m all over the board, but some of it is wishful thinking. 😉

    • ginaconkle2013

      Hi Barbara,
      Yes, I’m a mix of each one. I grew up a bit more composed and avoiding confrontation. Things sure change with age! have a great day Barbara.

  7. Joanna M

    Only one B here and the rest C’s!! I hesitated on the last one because one must always keep composure at all times but a pistol can be handy as well. And that late night snack, yeah, no food for this woman. Let me have the baron’s kisses instead 😉 No wonder I’m thoroughly enjoying Shana’s True Spies series.
