Character Guest Post by Emma + Giveaway: A Touch of Scarlet by Eve Marie Mont

Hi everyone! For today, we're doing something a little different. Instead of an author guest post, we'll have a character guest post. Eve has handed over her guest post responsibilities to Emma Townsend, the protagonist of her debut novel, A Breath of Eyre and A Touch of Scarlet. Here, Emma discusses why fictional men are better than real boys:

About the Author:

The compelling heroine of Eve Marie Mont’s novel A Breath of Eyre returns to find truth and fiction merging through the pages of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic, The Scarlet Letter…

Emma Townsend is back at prestigious Lockwood Prep, but her world has altered immeasurably since her tumultuous sophomore year. The best change of all: her boyfriend, Gray. And though Gray is leaving for Coast Guard training, Emma feels newly optimistic, even if the pain of her mother’s long-ago death still casts a shadow.

Yet Emma isn’t the only one who’s changed. Her friend and roommate, Michelle, is strangely remote, and old alliances are shifting in disconcerting ways. Soon Emma’s long-distance relationship with Gray is straining under the pressure, and Emma wonders if she’s cracking too. How else to explain the vivid dreams of Hester Prynne she’s been having since she started reading The Scarlet Letter? Or the way she’s found herself waking in the woods? As her life begins to echo events in the novel, Emma will be forced to choose between virtue and love. But can she forge a new future without breaking her heart?


Thanks to Eve, I've got one finished copy of A Touch of Scarlet up for grabs for you!
