Independent Lady Romance novel recommendations


So I really love stories about female leads that love themselves and will fight back if a guy forces himself on her. It’s okay if they are sweet, but I really like kind of arrogant leads that know they are the shit.


Hi! I’m in the process of writing a medical fiction story that has mystery, adventure, love, and a whole lot of character development. I love stories with deep characters with intricate pasts and am especially partial to those with strong female leads. The story focuses on a doctor who takes on a research fellowship to solve a medical mystery. I’m going to try to update it as often as possible.

Would love to hear any feedback if you get a chance to try this out :smile:

For full disclosure, I introduce the independent lady in chapter 2 and I’m going to build into the romance in the next few chapters.

Title: Dewdrops

Genre: General Fiction


A doctor who hates patients.

No other description suited Anthony Stanton better than that. Arriving at the esteemed Manifort Hospital, Anthony has only a single goal in mind: to complete his three-year research fellowship in the States and return as quickly as possible to England. However, as he steps into the lobby, little does he expect the adventure that awaits him, filled with heartbreak, unspeakable demons from his past, and a young girl, who will change his life.

I’m just starting out on Wattpad and would love to get as much feedback as I can so I can learn and grow as a writer. I’ve had this story brainstormed for a few years now but went through a long spell of writer’s block. However, I’ve finally decided to take the plunge and put what I have out there and start connecting with other aspiring writers! I’m sorry that I only have a few chapters out at the moment, but I’m constantly writing/editing and will put out more content asap.

Hey @bookworm52086 !

You might enjoy my new story “All”, a mature romance which is now finally complete (woohoo!).

The MC undergoes quite a lot of character development, becoming stronger the more she falls for the guy. Eventually she has to make the ultimate decision of whether to put herself, or love, first…

No worries if it doesn’t sound like your thing! :blush:



All [adverb]; completely, without exception.

When 18-year-old singer Abi meets Noah, a moody but disarming guitarist, she soon discovers his tough exterior is hiding more than just the tattoos that mark his skin.

Thrown into a world of secrets, emotions and sexual discovery, will their relationship ever become more than a confusing game of cat and mouse? As one person’s career takes off and the walls become to crumble between them, can Abi and Noah’s love survive the impact?

[WARNING: Contains sexual content and swearing]

The number one rule for the underlings at the venerable Robert Abraham Agency - DON’T DATE THE TALENT!

This hasn’t been a problem for the time that twenty-four year old Amelia “Millie” Stevens has worked as an assistant in the commercial department there. Millie is so driven to become a screenwriter, and prove that despite her working-class upbringing she belongs amongst her connected and wealthy colleagues, that she spends her days tethered to the phone at her desk and her nights completing coverages of other people’s scripts. She barely has the time, or money, to do her laundry let alone actually date anyone. Of course she might flirt a little bit. After all it’s part of the deal when you work with charming actors day in and day out. But Millie won’t compromise her future for anything less than a blockbuster with series potential kind of love, and certainly not for a b-movie lay, so she knows where and when to call “CUT” on the action.

That is, until twenty-eight year old, supremely-hot British television star Fin Covington has a meeting with her boss and Millie begins to question the stage directions of her life. Should she ignore the rule and greenlight the affections of this celebrity on hiatus, despite the risk of exposure by her scheming colleagues and the paparazzi? Or should she “PASS” on the summer-long dalliance? As she makes her choice, Millie soon comes to realize that not everything in life can be scripted and sometimes you just have to adlib.

My MC has cerebral palsy, but she certainly doesn’t let it stop her! I’ve been told she’s the queen of sass :slight_smile: . Although she will have moments in the story where life gets tough. She isn’t always fully independent, but she sure as hell fights for her independence.



What if your own body doesn’t always do what you want it to do?

For June, this isn’t a question, but a daily reality. As a fourteen-year-old with cerebral palsy, frequently dropping stuff and being stared at by complete strangers is nothing out of the ordinary. Other than that, life is great, until her parents decide to move to California.

With all her friends miles away and nobody there to protect her from boys stealing your lunch, school becomes a lot more complicated than it had been. Then, she befriends Sam Redstone, a shy boy who’d always been invisible to others.

June’s days improve drastically with Sam by her side, and when she meets his older brother Nathan, she finally believes her cousin Valentina might have been right about sexy California guys. Slowly, she and Nathan develop a unique friendship, one that, June finds herself hoping, might someday turn into something more. But as the years go by, she’s starting to think she might never be with him that way, or any other man for that.

Gracie (Grace) Anderson stops believing in fate and soulmates- when her 4-year relationship ultimately falls apart within seconds of being in a bathroom stall. When she craves revenge on a drunken whim- She falls victim to divine intervention and an unexpected surprise from her own mistakes.

“Do you want me to help you forget about him?”
I bite my lower lip and look up at his gaze. Feeling dizzy from all of that drinking- yet, I still want this. I want them all to feel pain. I’ve never wanted anything more.
“I want to forget.” I simply say.
He leans in and gives me a soft, yet tender kiss.
Pulling back, I catch him grinning at me. I feel myself blush and leaning back in- knowing where this is going to go.

Our story is about love and feminism! It’s only four chapters yet, but we’ll keep writing!

One of the main characters (there’s two) is struggling to find the right balance between love and independence. She’s a female rights activist in a time the movement was taken to extremes, but what happens when she does fall in love?

Do you mind a bit of Urban Fantasy? I have one - she’s a thief and he’s a vigilante. It’s basically a modern day adventure romance with dragons thrown in. So not exactly strictly romance.

My story features a strong female lead with a planned story arch of independence and growth, even as she finds herself torn between the kind, controlled Theo and his cocky, unpredictable cousin, Dane. Currently still very early with only a prologue and two parts.

Description: Only three things are certain: Magic is real. Her life is on the line. And nothing will ever be the same again.

Seventeen year old Calla Raine doesn’t see trouble when she first lays eyes on the new student. Only a gorgeous guy that takes an unexpected interest in her. But after they meet, Calla’s quiet, small-town life takes a far more sinister turn.

And it only gets more complicated when his wayward cousin comes home.

Calla quickly finds herself caught between two worlds: the peaceful one she has always known, and one of darkness.

Harder still, she’s also caught between the two feuding cousins: Kind, compassionate Theo and the brooding, unpredictable Dane.
