Today is the Moonless Blog Hop, to celebrate the paperback release of
Crystal Collier's book, Moonless!
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 later when she discovers him standing over her murdered host in the middle of the night.
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.
Sounds good, right?
So Crystal wanted to know:
If you lived in a society where arranged marriages were the norm, who would you beg your parents to set you up with? (Literary characters and celebrities welcomed.) Who and why?
This is tough, (especially as I'm about to celebrate my ten year anniversary, and it seems odd to say someone other than my husband!)
But. . . if I have to pick, I'll pick someone fictional.
One of the best books I've read recently was Eleanor and Park.
Reading it I remembered what it's like to fall in love for the first time.
The love story in the book was so sweet and so innocent.
It shows the thrill of just holding someone's hand.
Remember what a big deal that was?
So I'll pick Park. :)
Congratulations to Crystal! Moonless sounds fantastic, and it must be such a thrill to get to hold the paperback in your hands. :)
And now I want to know about you. Who would you want to be paired with?
