The Weight of the Crown blog is masterminded by the incredible Nas Dean of Romance Book Paradise, who has done a wonderful job co-ordinating all the dates for me.

I love writing, and working on Weight of the Crown was a particular joy. It gave me a chance to do something a bit different. By setting Lysander and Alyssa’s story in the fictional country of Rosara, I was able to escape the gloomy English climate by imagining scenes like this…

The rising sun was already staining the Eastern sky with colours of pomegranate and peach. down in the gardens, nightingales still sang. Their music was a grace note for Alyssa’s perfect fantasy, and she relaxed into Lysander’s embrace. No woman had ever felt so adored. As she felt his kisses on her hair and looked out over the ageless scene she allowed herself to imagine being this happy forever…

  2. Congratulations, Christina, on your new release! This sounds like a very special and different romance book, being set in a fictional country, and I loved yesterday's interview you did on Marlena Cassidy's blog, The Words Behind the Writer. With Nas Dean coordinating your blog tour, I know this one will be extra special. I'm looking forward to following it and delighted to be one of the stops.
