I have a love for the unlikable heroines. I really can't get enough of them. I find them in a way more relate-able and thus more likable than Pollyanna everybody loves me super innocent heroines. Those bitches get on my damn nerves.
Most of my heroines, okay all of them, have been hard to like but only because they are usually hard to get to know them. I believe that once they are known they are easy to love. These women have layers and of course the outer ones are a bit hard and not pretty but once you go down deep enough you discover a vulnerability that they are desperate to protect. I love that about all my characters. I usually know exactly when I have my heroine right when a reader tells me they want to punch her in the face. My heroes take the time to know these women that a lot of readers declare as unlikable. The hero gets to know them and like me, those boys fall in love with what they discover.
