Open Heart Chronicles Blog Tour: Breathless Magic by Rachel Higginson ~ Character Interview & Huge Giveaway!
Character Interview with Kiran and Eden:
*What was your first impression of one another?
Eden: *snort* Love at first sight.
Kiran: For me it was.
Eden: Alright, maybe it wasn’t love at first sight for me, but there was definitely a very strong attraction between us. At least until you opened your mouth.
Kiran: *grinning* I can admit to a fair amount of jackassery in the beginning, but there has always been something pulling us toward the other, even in those first few moments. You were the loveliest thing I had ever seen and I knew more than anything else that I needed to be a part of what you were.
Eden: You’re going to make me cry.
Kiran: Not me, Love. Blame that on the baby.
*Most romantic gesture you've done for each other?
Kiran: That would obviously be when I tried to die for her all those times.
Eden: All those times?
Kiran: There were definitely a lot of times I tried to die for you. You’re just especially selfish when it comes to me.
Eden: *smiling fondly*I would have to agree with that.
Kiran: And what’s your most romantic gesture, Love?
Eden: Same thing. When I wouldn’t let you die for me. Or at least without me.
Kiran: *putting his hand on Eden’s stomach* A baby is pretty romantic.
Eden: *laughing* And I made this baby just for you, Kiran. Just to show you how much I love you.
Kiran: I know.
*Favorite qualities about one another?
Kiran: I love her devotion, her loyalty, her compassion, her sweet spirit. She is just everything to me. And more. So much more.
Eden: You really want me to cry, don’t you? You’re purposefully trying to make me cry.
Kiran: It’s all truth, Love. But you know that. You know you’re my eternity.
Eden: This is my favorite quality, whatever this is. The way he says things that change my life, my way of thinking… my soul. The way he leads and the way he follows when he has to. The way every day he is a better man than the day before. And the way he will always and forever love me.
*Let's be honest now...most annoying trait about each other?
Eden: Oh, lord. The smirk. Definitely and without a doubt, the smirk.
Kiran: *smirking* I don’t smirk. I don’t.
Eden: *rolls her eyes* Sure, sure. Now, come on, let’s hear it. What’s my most annoying trait?
Kiran: Your stubborn spirit. Most definitely.
Eden: I’m not stubborn.
Eden: I’m not.
*Do you have pet names? If so what are they?
Eden: Love. He has always called me Love.
Kiran: Because you are love, in every sense of that word. *thinks for a moment* Do you have a pet name for me?
Eden: *clears her throat* Does jackass count?
Kiran: Er, no. The answer to the question is no, she does not have a pet name for me.
*Ideal Valentine's Day date and/or gift?
Kiran: I would love it if she would relax, put her feet up and for just one day make it so I didn’t constantly worry about her and the pregnancy.
Eden: Isn’t that a gift to me?
Kiran: We have this conversation daily and I have yet to witness feet up and arse relaxed, so no. That gift is specifically for me.
Eden: Fine, then I would like the Indian Palace. I loved the Indian Palace.
Kiran: *after he recovers from shock* Then why did you blow it up?
Eden: *shrugs* You know, desperate times and all…
Kiran: *shakes his head* Maybe the Palace is gone… for good thanks to you. But we can go back to India, Love. Just say when.
I was born and raised in Nebraska, but spent my college years traveling the world. I fell in love with Eastern Europe, Paris, Indian Food and the beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka. But I came back home to marry my high school sweetheart and now I spend my days raising our growing family. In those few spare moments I have, I am either reading or writing Young Adult Fiction, because I am obsessed with it.
Five other things I'm obsessed with right now:
1. My Kuerig Coffee Machine. Genius.
2. 90's music. Oh man, the 90's speak right to my soul.
3. Chocolate smelling body wash. Who doesn't want to walk around smelling like a bakery?
4. Colored Chapstick. And if it's Dr. Pepper Flavored, that's kind of my nirvana.
5. Spotify. It's like the mixed-tape of this generation and I have probably three hundred hours of music on there. Can't get enough.
