The Second Sign blog tour - Guest post by Elizabeth Arroyo


Happy Valentine's Day!

Romance lives!!

I love romance novels. I read all of Catherine Coutler regency romances. I delved into Madeline Hunter. Corsets, petticoats, and arranged marriages are just awesome to read. There's conflict, conflict, and more conflict in each and every one of them.

Paranormal romance...also my favorite. Bad-boys in black leather. Come on now, who wouldn't love that? JR Ward and Sherrilyn Kenyon my favorites.

And then there's YA. It holds a different place in my heart. An untainted innocence yet explored. That first crush, that awkward kiss, the special dance. The flirting. Yes, romance in YA is flirting. Ninety percent of romance in YA is written between the lines.

And ladies and gentleman, romance lives. There is still a special place in the heart of teens, yearning for that special event that turns their world upside down...even boys. Here's where I delve into a true story.

My son gave me permission to go ahead and share his special moment.

He actually organized a very special something when he asked his girlfriend out--which means being exclusive.  He had a scavenger hunt and involved all of their friends. It started with one of her girlfriends leading her to the first stop where another friend held a message to give her. Written on the message was a clue, the place of a shared moment between son and girlfriend, and this message led her to another place where another friend waited for her with another message. Until finally, my son waited for her in the last stop with a message of his own.

And loads of people followed on Facebook.

Yes! Romance Lives!

When a demon guardian comes to collect seventeen-year-old Gabby’s soul, she refuses to give it up. She’s not demon. She can’t be. Her father and twin brother are angels. The demon gives Gabby twenty- four hours to decide her allegiance, and then starts killing her short list of friends, leaving a message behind: She is the Second Sign.

As Gabby and Jake—her almost boyfriend—begin to unravel the mystery behind the Second Sign, she learns Jake may be the key to saving her soul. But it means a sacrifice has to be made that will change their lives forever.
