I've said it before, but it bears repeating: Sophie Jordan is my favorite. She's been my favorite for awhile...since she burst onto the historical romance scene with her amazingly smart, sexy romances. Sins of a Wicked Duke is one of the five books I'd take with me to a desert isle. I heart it.
And then, when I sold Nine Rules... to Avon, Sophie became a friend. She's super supportive and knows the answers to everything, and I can call her with questions and she'll actually answer the phone. It's amazing.
So, when I heard that she was writing a YA paranormal, Firelight, I got really excited. And then she gave me an ARC. And I got *really really* excited. And then I read it. And, Oh. Em. Gee. I LOVE THIS BOOK. It's smart and thrilling and unputdownable and you end up wanting to be Jacinda (who is descended from dragons and can BREATHE FIRE omgsocoolomg) and wanting to, yes, make out with Will (whose family hunts dragons--which makes the whole romance so delicious). And I'm BEGGING Sophie for the next book but she won't share it...which makes me sad.
But she did give me this blog post to help me celebrate the release of my next book, Ten Ways to Be Adored When Landing a Lord, and I suppose that's enough, at least until she decides that she loves me enough to give me a copy of Firelight II: Vanish.
Ten Ways To Get Your Draki On!
by Sophie Jordan
1. Buy Firelight and learn what it really means to get all “hot” and bothered over a guy!
2. Sprout wings and fly!
3. Live a really, really long time … like a few hundred years. Oh, and when you do “expire” you’ll still look youthful.
4. Live in a mysterious world of cool, wet mists shielded from the outside “human” world.
5. When you fall for a guy, you fall hard – it’s just a genetic predisposition. You can’t help yourself.
6. Superpowers. Yep, but they’re called talents. It’s a surprise what your superpower will be until you come of age, but rest assured it just might be something as cool as … fire-breathing!
7. Blow steam on any guy who gets a little to fresh what his hands or lips.
8. Evade the brutal hunters who would capture you and do unspeakable things to you, that is unless you...
9. Fall for a super sexy hunter who just might be different from the others hunting you.
10. Give the hottest lip-singeing kisses -- literally.
Jacinda has an awesome special power...well, more than one, actually. If you could choose one special power for yourself, what would it be and why?
