Point: my 3rd, our fifteen-year-old daughter, is one of the two who read well but would rather spend her time texting or watching a movie. However, she recently confided in me that she's found a genre of young adult lit she truly enjoys. And guess what??? It's romance with a splash of English society. WOOT! Thus, it feels like I've been waiting forever for Crystal's book to release in paperback. (Said daughter won't read on a Kindle. She wants to feel the paper in her hand. lol)
In the English society of 1768 where women are bred to marry, unattractive Alexia, just sixteen, believes she will end up alone. But on the county doorstep of a neighbor’s estate, she meets a man straight out of her nightmares, one whose blue eyes threaten to consume her whole world—especially when she discovers him standing over her murdered host in the middle of the night.
Crystal has asked each of her participants to answer this question: If you lived in a society where arranged marriages were a la mode, whom would you beg your parents to set you up with? Why?
Check out who others chose as their arranged spouse throughout the rest of the hop below!
Her nightmares become reality: a dead baron, red-eyed wraiths, and forbidden love with a man hunted by these creatures. After an attack close to home, Alexia realizes she cannot keep one foot in her old life and one in this new world. To protect her family she must either be sold into a loveless marriage, or escape with her beloved and risk becoming one of the Soulless.
This has taken a ton of thought. I am a romance sap, so said suitor needs to be passionate. I also don't mind a bit of eye candy. Can you really blame a girl?
I've never been big on celebrities and their too-fast, too-many-public-issues world. They're just too real for me. That leaves me with all the fictional gentlemen, dudes, studmuffins, and geekers I've fawned over throughout the years. In the end, as much as I enjoy that eye candy, I am the girl who values loyalty, trust, honesty, and integrity above all else. In my book, there is no one fictional male character who holds these to a greater degree than Mr. Darcy of Pride & Prejudice.He was absolutely my first love. ❤
And while you're at it, enter to win one of these great prizes!
AND, of course, share with me who you'd ask to be set up with!
