Valentine's Blog Event: Character Interview - Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood

So I loved this book and was ecstatic to have had a little chat with the leading man, Finn! Yes, he has competition with Paul but who cares... No one beats Finn. Sweet and unknowingly sexy... *pounces* I did this interview shortly before reading Born Wicked, so it ended up being a great little introduction! Whether you're reading Born Wicked soon or have already, you'll really enjoy this ;)

What was your first impression of Cate?
At first I thought she was a bit proud and standoffish. When she came into our bookshop, she always seemed in a rush to leave, like she thought she was above the place. But then when I ran into her in her garden – she seemed sad. And angry. It’s not often that girls show their emotions like that. I was intrigued, I suppose. I felt like there was more to her, all of a sudden.

Your relationship with her is forbidden. How far are you willing to go to be with her?
(eyes you seriously from behind his glasses) I would do anything to be with Cate.

What do you think is Cate’s most admirable trait?
She has this stubborn will that she flings against anything in her path. She would do anything for Maura and Tess, even sacrifice her own happiness. She’s generous and brave and beautiful and clever, and she can be quite ferocious when she’s angry. Er. Sorry for going on…

Where would you take a girl on the first date?
The Brothers don’t permit men and women to go anywhere alone together. But if I could somehow spirit Cate away for a day, I’d take her to the ocean. We’d have a picnic, and I’d read to her from Tales of the Pirate LeFevre, and – well. The rest is private.

Do you think you’re better suited for Cate than Paul? Why?
McLeod could give her things I can’t – money, safety, stability. His family’s got a good reputation with the Brotherhood, unlike mine. (sighs and runs a hand through his hair, leaving it sticking straight up) But I don’t think he could love her more than I do.

What’s the fondest memory you have of Cate?
When she showed me her magic and told me she loved me.

We hear you have a love of reading, Finn! Can you share some of your favourite books with us?
The old Greek myths are my favorites. I’d love to do my own translations of The Metamorphoses and The Odyssey someday.  

Can you tell us what kind of guy you are?
I’m a scholar and a bookseller.  I hate the Brothers’ book-banning, and I’m proud of my mother’s work in running the bookshop. I suppose I’m unusual in that I was raised by a very clever, educated woman, and I wouldn’t want anything less in a wife. The Brothers preach that women should be subservient to their husbands, but I think that’s hogwash.

Most girls would say you’re swoon-worthy... What do you think are your best qualities? We promise we won’t try to steal you away...
Oh, I can’t be stolen. (grins) I’m very loyal. I’d do anything to protect the people I love – Mother, Clara, Cate.

Was that not swoon-worthy? I'd love to have Finn as my gardener!! I'd sit outside and read all day. Then have intellectual conversations with him ;) Have you all watched the deliciously awesome trailer for this book? It'll get your heart racing, that's for sure!

I'm sure you've heard of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. Guh, what a mouthful. Brodie's got an author interview with Jennifer E. Smith today! I love it. Such perfect answers <3
