There's nothing quite like a man in uniform and nobody knows that better than the authors and fans of military romances. These novels feature "strong, sexy heroes and strong, sexy heroines" in dramatic, high conflict situations.
Some of the most popular and well-known heroines of literature are the outspoken troublemakers. Think Scarlett O'Hara, Anne of Green Gables, Emma Woodhouse, Becky Sharpe or Lady Macbeth. And then there are the wallflowers.
