Strong is Sexy Heroine of the Week: P.J. Stone

Book: Hidden Gates
Author: D.T. Dyllin
Heroine: P.J. Stone

I’m super excited to have been invited by Tara aka Book Babe, to do a guest post for her Strong is Sexy meme. Lets take a moment while I do a little happy dance…again. lol Okay moving along…

I want to take this opportunity to introduce you to my strong, sexy heroine P.J. Stone. She is an eighteen-year-old Seer, who is obviously still a teenager. Now, you’re probably scratching your head and wondering what does a teenager know about being strong, or sexy for that matter? First of all, I’m going to look past all of the supernatural aspects of P.J.’s world and talk about why I think she’s strong character wise. P.J. is young, sure. She has a lot of room for emotional growth, but that’s just the thing, she’s the type of person who knows that about herself.

Being strong doesn’t mean always making the right decision the first time around or even knowing what the right decision is. Being strong is holding yourself accountable for your own actions, and knowing when to admit that you’re wrong. Being strong is knowing your own flaws, and knowing that it’s okay to not be perfect. P.J. is far from perfect, and she knows it. She makes a lot of bad choices and knows she has to live with them. P.J. is strong and therefore sexy because even though she keeps screwing up, she always picks herself up and tries again. She stands up for what she believes in, goes after what she thinks she wants, and gets knocked down time and time again…but she won’t stay down. Emotional growth and strength comes from how you deal with failures, not having things handed to you on a silver platter. P.J. only begins to grow emotionally after hardships begin to happen in her life.

Yes, P.J. is a teenager, but she’s still strong, and as my series continues she will become more so. Although we might need to be patient with her for a while because she’s still learning what strength is and well…you know how teenagers can be. Lol

Hidden Gates (The P.J. Stone Gates Trilogy #1)To get to know P.J. and her world check out Hidden Gates, Book One in The P.J. Stone Gates Trilogy. Thanks again for having me Tara!


For P.J. Stone, being a “Seer” who has never seen anything is less than fun. And P.J. isn’t known for her patience.

To make matters worse, she must choose a suitable mate to continue the Seer bloodline. Duty always comes before her heart…at least that’s what her parents taught her. When she finds herself wanting someone who is considered off-limits, P.J. is forced to question everything she believes.

As if navigating her love life isn’t complicated enough, P.J. finally receives a vision—of a threat to her world that only she can perceive. But no one will believe a fledgling Seer’s warnings. With nowhere else to turn, she may decide to trust a stranger with her life, her world, and maybe even her heart.
