Fantasy romance question below! Play along with us in the spirit of Crystal Collier's new 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.)
Kim's answer: When I was a freshman in college, so a nice marriageable age of 18, I had a thing for Clark Gable: specifically as Rhett Butler from Gone With the Wind. I loved his sense of adventure, his roguish ways, his devotion to his daughter, and the way he wormed his way into the heart of the woman he loved. I even plasti-taked a life-sized poster of him on my dorm door. I think life would always be exciting with Rhett as a husband, and he would do his utmost to protect and care for me and our family.
