But first here are the deets....


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.

  1. No answer - that's cheating! Twenty years younger? Maybe. But I think I'm in better shape now at almost fifty than I was when I was thirty.

    1. I don't think so, Alex... LOL. Well, you all seem to be upset with me. LOL.

      Actually way back, I had met one of my fav. supermodels when in the early 80's, I had only been modeling for about five years, but she was such a superstar I was all tongue-tied... But... man was I hooked.

      Have you guessed?

      Supermodel... Carol Alt.

  2. Yes, if only we were younger, there would be more options. I'm actually older than Hugh Jackman, who would be my choice. Then again, I've seen his wife, and I think I have a shot.

  3. Hey! Where's your answer??? I flew over to read it. Anyway, thanks for helping Crystal. What a great question. Hope all is well, Michael!

    1. Sorry Robyn.... but, as I had just told Alex... I guess in my youth it was Supermodel Carol Alt.

  4. A list as long as your arm? lol!
    Interesting question to put out there for a blogfest. I haven't a clue who I'd choose and like you, I'm attracted to all sorts of different types for different reasons--looks are not on the top of the list but then, the hunchback of Notre Dame isn't on there either, lol!

    We have more snow today. I'll be SO glad when this winter is done!

  5. LOL! Sorry to torture you, Michael. You're an epic sport though, and I couldn't have a better cohost. You totally rock!

    1. Oh, it is... IT IS!!!!..I just informed Alex, that in my youth it would've been supermodel Carol Alt.

    2. Wahoo! Now that wasn't too painful, was it? (Offering cheese balm...)

  6. I'm with Alex, Michael. I bet you're in better shape now than you were twenty years ago, too.

    1. Susan, you are TOO KIND! Remember twenty years ago I was a top model. I may be a bit thinner now, but one can never compete with a youthful glow. I had PERFECT skin back then... now... hmmm lined, suns-spotted, BUT with LOTS of character. LOL... It's from smiling all the time! Especially at my wonderful blogger buddies!

  7. LOL if I knew I could have pleaded the fifth I would have joined the hop. :D It's fun to read all the answers - this is a great hop you guys are hosting. Congrats to Crystal!!

  8. Pleading the fifth is very smart. Very smart, indeed. haha

    ReplyDelete
  9. But who is YOUR choice?

    Love,

  10. I have a big list, but I will try to narrow it down. ;) I'd go with Chris Hemsworth. Yummy and he plays a god.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Choosing not to choose is a choice...
    We can choose for you!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I wanted to plead too, but I caved to the pressure and picked someone. Ooh, it could be a fun blogfest all in itself to have everyone pick FOR you! hehe. Christy

    ReplyDelete
  13. Good thing it's your parents arranging the marriage so you don't have to choose. ;) Great job co-hosting today! Crystal's book is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Life in retrospect is fun to contemplate. To be younger in body, yet as wise as you are now. That would work. . .

    ReplyDelete
  15. Choosing not to choose. .. Wished I had a few of those moments.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm with you, Michael---WAY too hard of a question ot answer...

    ReplyDelete
  17. It was hard to answer . . . soooo many possibilities!

    ReplyDelete
  18. You got out of that really well. :) It would have been hardto choose if I didn't pick my own hubby. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. It was a super hard question, but I think you handled it well by pleading the fifth! : ) I see that you did cave in and give a name. So, a supermodel, huh? Very nice. : )

  20. so let me get this straight... when you say "many choices" you are referring to my many traits and are choosing me? right? RIGHT? *throws little black dress on floor* I'm so not going to go out with you running in my best outfit if you don't say yes!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ah hell Dude. I thought I'd learn something about your deepest fantasy here. *sniffs* I feel cheated.

  22. I'd have a hard time choosing too. So excited for Crystal. I shouted out about her celebration even though I couldn't be part of the tour.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Honestly I would plead the fifth too. Though, If I had to do it all over again my hubby would top the list, by a far margin. I think my parents would have chosen him for me too. They've told me enough times that he was the only one they could see me marrying.

    ReplyDelete
  24. So unfair! I'm not upset with you though. I hope you know that we are your supporters and you could have told us anything!

  25. I was looking forward to reading the answer from a Male perspective. I don't really know you, but let me set you up with Christy Brinkley- would that make you happy?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I agree with Christine . . . you wouldn't have to make the choice if your parents set you up. :) But I totally get pleading the fifth. Wise man.

    ReplyDelete
  27. So, Michael, a little possibility of incriminating yourself? :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I was looking forward to seeing the male perspective, but I understand.

    I've been wondering how different these posts would have been if we'd had to guess who our parents would have chosen for us.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Pleading the Fifth is a very wise choice! Great seeing you on the screen, Michael. Hope the New Year is a great one for you.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thanks for co-hosting you coward! And I agree with Connie. The answer would be totally different. Since my dad worked for General Electric his whole life, he would have been thrilled to hook me up with a future CEO of G.E. like Jack Welch.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Well you took the easy way out my friend, but that's ok. We still love you. Smooch!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Congrats to Crystal! How exciting for her book to be in print as well as ebook. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hey Michael, I'm so with you!
    I too would have pleaded the fifth... and that's why I didn't sign up... too many possibilities, (Mr. Depp being one of them...)
    (See you next week for the Ubuntu Blog Hop. I'm looking forward to reading all the entries...)

  34. I think I would go with Nathan Fillion, Oo, or Jeffrey Donovan!

    Wait. Why are all of my celeb picks in their forties?! I plead the fifth, too. LOL
