Valentines Day Book Blitz: Moonlight by Ann Hunter

Day 3
By Ann Hunter

The Swan Princess is an amazing tale of sacrifice and standing up for whats right. This is very similar, but in many ways VERY different!

Book Blurb:

Moonlight, the WHITNEY AWARD NOMINATED prequel to The Subtle Beauty (free on Amazon), is the book critics are calling "Kind of ethereal", "...a fairytale world that will steal your heart and fuel your imagination".
In this fractured retelling of THE SWAN PRINCESS, one girl will sacrifice much to save her family.
When her mother dies, Aowyn vows to protect her brothers and father from the conniving Ciatlllait who is bent on usurping the throne and the kingdom. To do this, Aowyn makes a deal with the twisted creature Sylas Mortas, only realizing too late that breathing a word of their bargain will kill her swan brothers. Will she be able to wait out the 1,000 moons the steep price of the deal requires with war and romance on the horizon?
Find out in MOONLIGHT.

Xander grabbed the flat sides of the blade and yanked, pulling Aowyn down on top of him.
The soldiers gibed and teasingly requested that the two continue their dance in private. They began to dissipate, arguing over who owed what bet to who.
Aowyn blushed furiously. She sat up and glared at a nearly-unrecognizable Xander. He pried her sword from her and attempted to catch her hand.
Aowyn pushed away from him and wiped the mud from her palms.
The young man found his feet. He breathed quickly, excited by their bout. He stepped toward her. “Tell me your name.”
She glared at him, but deep inside she felt invigorated and secretly a little giddy. She shook her head.
Xander exhaled forcefully. “What shall I call you then?”
Aowyn placed her hands on her hips and cocked her head to the side.
The corner of Xander’s mouth turned upward. “Peerless Paramour.”
She rolled her eyes and walked away from him. Xander followed.
“My heart’s gleam,” he suggested.
Aowyn ignored him. Why did he behave this way? They hardly knew each other. She stifled a smirk.
“Queen of my dreams,” Xander declared.
Aowyn paused and turned to him. His eyes widened as she strode forward. She sidled up to him and ran a finger along his jaw. Xander’s knees quaked. The princess knocked him over like a feather.
Xander’s hands went to his heart as if to protect it. He sighed as she walked away. “Shield maiden.”
