I think I've made it fairly clear over the years that I'm a HUGE fan of grumpy romance heroes--especially the "grumpy one is soft for the sunshine one" trope. But I got to thinking...what about the grumpy romance HEROINE? When is she going to get some love? You know, that heroine who is a good, likeable person at heart, but who is just OVER all the BS? The tired, put-upon, "been there, done that" heroine. I love that heroine! So, I went on a search (I searched far and wide, because these heroines are NOT as plentiful as the grumpy heroes) and came up with what I think is the best list of grumpy heroines in romance that you'll ever find. (If I do say so myself) Don't say I never gave you anything, OK? Happy reading:

Not entirely romance but JD Robb’s Eve Dallas in the In Death series is grumpy and totally steals your heart. The love interest Roarke is charming, clever and intense. I adore these books.
