In the City of Lights, two star-crossed lovers battle a fate that is destined to tear them apart again and again for eternity.
When Kate Mercier's parents die in a tragic car accident, she leaves her life--and memories--behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way to survive her pain is escaping into the world of books and Parisian art. Until she meets Vincent.
Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate's guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he's a revenant--an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries-old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again.
So I was thinking that I need to get me some hot, immortal teen-boy action because that is not at all creepy and weird.
The first step was to kill either one or both of my parents because I feel, statistically, that to be a YA protagonist, I would have a much better chance of meeting a hot, immortal teen-boy that way.
I also needed a legitimate reason to look sad all the time so that when he first saw me, I could look a little like this:
In this instance I decided to go to Paris because they have the best coffee shops to sit and look pensive in. Location, location, location. I wasn’t going to ruin my deep, spiritual brooding with some podunk town like FORKS. Ha!
I signed up to go to school and refused to make any friends because, once again, statistically that would impinge on my chances of meeting the hot, immortal teen boyfriend. In fact, I was so dedicated to this that I wiped any memory of school from my mind and never, once, thought about it.
It looked hopeless for a while there but then… success!
BUT, he was WAY too old so I had to throw him back and look for something barely legal.
Ooookay… I’m so getting arrested for that.
You know what? It was Zac Efron. He’s legal, right? Zac Efron – famous, over 18 actor, was also a hot, immortal teen boy.
Better! So. Much. Better.
So I met him and even though he was a little bit of a jerk and really strange – I refused to behave in a socially acceptable manner and stalked him. Behold my success! We’re now totally, totally in love. Forever. No take-backsies.
Then stuff happened. Evil things. Scary things. I got held captive a lot – wicked awesome! But he proved how much he loved me and how much he believed in maintaining stereotypical archetypes and came to my rescue.
Even though we don’t really know the first things about each other, we both know we have a deep spiritual connection. Haha! Spiritual! Get it? It’s funny… So I just want you to know that you TOO can land your own hot, immortal, teen boyfriend if you follow my simple formula for success.
