Many an unsung hero has taken their final bow. Characters live on in our hearts and we wait for them, love them, and carry them with us even long after their stories have been told. Edmond Dantes is that for me. I fell in love with him because of Jim Caviezel’s portrayal of Edmond in the 2002 adaption of The Count of Monte Cristo. The second that movie ended I knew I needed to read the real story. As you can tell by my collection of books that novel is not an easy read (especially for a teenager with a minuscule attention span) but it paid off over the years and Edmond has become a book boyfriend I will have until I’m 100.
There are other elements to Edmond’s tale. Love: both the long, deep, needful kind, and the unrequited kind. There is betrayal, murder, poison, and all sorts of mayhem. The Count of Monte Cristo is a story that has everything a reader could want and more. I took it up a notch and added a little spice.
I am kicking off a blog tour (started on 1 Feb) to celebrate the completion of my adaption of The Count of Monte Cristo: The Wild and Wanton Edition. I hope this sexy and sensual version of the classic tale will inspire you to seek out other stories you might have set aside. I hope you fall in love with a character and keep him forever.
The Count of Monte Cristo: The Wild and Wanton Edition Volumes 1-5 are all out at your favorite ebook seller now.
