Sorry for the absence. The hubby and I were in Florida visiting family last week. I had my tablet but no time to write or visit blogs. I did, however, have time to meet this handsome devil:
I wanted to cuddle with his sooooooo bad but I feared he might kill me with his very sharp talons!
It's good to be home, and writing again. It's also nice to sleep in my own bed and clean my own house, wait, maybe not that last thing.
Also, today is Crystal Collier's Moonless Paperback release. YAY Crystal!!!!!
To celebrate, Crystal asked her fellow bloggers who they would beg their parents to set them up with if they had to have an arranged marriage.
Let's start by saying, excellent question. Let's assume, for the sake of interesting answers, that I have not met my husband in this world. If I had to pick anyone real or imaginary besides the hubby, then I would choose Mr. Darcy, just kidding, I think Darcy's kind of a tool bag. I would actually choose The Fool from Christopher Moore's The Fool. Everyone needs a good laugh and he seems like a good sport, not to mention he speaks Perfect F@#$ing French. Also in contention was Captain Ahab, but mostly because that relationship would come with great freedom as he would be out stalking a whale most of the time.
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. Among the many things to change for her that evening are: her physical appearance—from ghastly to breathtaking, an epidemic of night terrors predicting the future, and the blue-eyed man’s unexpected infusion into her life. Not only do his appearances precede tragedies, but they’re echoed by the arrival of ravenous, black-robed wraiths on moonless nights. Unable to decide whether he is one of these monsters or protecting her from them, she uncovers what her father has been concealing: truths about her own identity, about the blue-eyed man, and about love. 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 the man of her dreams and risk becoming one of the Soulless.
