Today I'm participating in Crystal Collier's MOONLESS book release blogfest. First off I want to say that I just lurve the blogfest badge below - isn't it so pretty?!!? Anyway, I'm very happy to be participating in this blogfest, and now I'm going to step aside so you can learn more about Crystal's book.
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.
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.

So here's the 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? (Literary characters and celebrities welcomed.)
SO glad I don't live in such a society, buuuut if I did I'd give the world of LOST IN AUSTEN a shot (yes, this show is related to Jane Austen's work, namely Pride and Prejudice). I wouldn't be terribly devastated to be destined for Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy, even if it did mean shoving Lizzie out of the way - and even if the apple of my eye does refer to me as "an abomination!" at one point. heh. It would all be worth it, I think, for that moment by the lake when he makes my dream come true. :)
