Evernight Teen Valentine's Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to my first ever Blog Hop!

I have to confess, I have no idea what I'm doing, but here goes:

Romance. Sigh....

It's great when you have it, and not so much when you don't. But I think the enormous popularity of romance novels speaks to our desire for it. Everyone wants to feel needed, like they belong to a part of something more than themselves. In my book, X5 (the main character) has grown up in a Bunker. He was raised with other children, but not as part of a family unit. Imagine growing up in a hospital, with no parents or anyone to show you affection. Not fun. He wants more, and really, who wouldn't?

In the Bunker, relationships are arranged, and purely for the purpose of breeding. X5 is supposed to be mated to A7, but he wonders what it would be like to actually choose the person he's going to be with. He's heard about love, but having never experienced it, wonders what it might feel like.

My book isn't primarily a romance. But it does have romantic elements. And I'm not going to say any more because I can't give it all away! I'm posting the blurb for my upcoming book, X5: Genesis below.

X5: Genesis

More than 130 years after a meteor devastated the planet, twenty-five percent of the population is left to rebuild. Among the survivors is a group known as The Consortium. To further their own agenda, they’ve built a top secret Bunker deep within the Colorado Rockies to breed and raise children with psychic gifts, and use those powers for their own gain.

X5, a seventeen year old boy who lives in The Bunker, has a vision of himself covered in blood and running through a forest with A7, the girl who is supposed to be his mate. And when A7 tells him she had a vision of him being killed, he knows they’re in trouble. Their only choice is to run. X5 and A7 have lived their whole lives in The Bunker and know nothing of the outside world. With the Consortium out to get them back, they have to learn quick or their visions will become reality.
