    "Taunting Destiny by Amelia Hutchins is the second book in The Fae Chronicles series. The book is about the heroine Synthia and her quest to find out who is killing the Faes. I am not ashamed to say I got lost in the pages of this book. It is a fascinating read and it is even more mind blowing than the first book. I can't wait to start the next book in the series."

    "The heroine of this story may have initially been independent, but she has been captured by an enemy and is slowly falling in love with him. This book is certainly an adult fantasy romance, but it is questionable how independent the heroine is if she is a prisoner and is becoming dependent upon her captor for emotional sustenance. I think there are psychology studies about this, where the prisoner becomes enamored of her tormentor. Otherwise, this is a popular book with nearly 3,000 reviews liking it."

    "Vampire Academy is a very entertaining book, the first of a great series. But it wouldn't be a good contender in this category as it is a young adult book taking place at a school."

    "Anyone who is interested in the best adult fantasy romance books with an independent heroine should first try something other than the book “Snowbrother” by S. M. Stirling. This book is way too simplistic and overly barbaric. There are many others you can read before trying this one."
