Cupid Cloud Hop: Sweetheart Couple Book Spotlight (Giveaway)

The Cupid Cloud Hop is hosted by Winter Haven Books!!

This week we were asked to spotlight a book that includes our favorite book boyfriend or sweetheart couple and share what we love about these characters.

I chose one of my favorite sweetheart couple, Jace & Clary from Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments.

The Mortal Instruments on Goodreads
City of Lost Souls on Goodreads

In the beginning, Jace and Clary (but mostly Jace) agonized over the possibility that they were brother and sister, and even when that was proven false, they still had obstacles that seemed impossible to overcome. But they have overcome every obstacle in their path so far, and have come away stronger because of them. These two are a passionate couple that only have eyes for each other. And I'm hoping that by the end of the series, that these two will finally be able to focus solely on themselves and each other. There is just something about this couple that you can't help but love.

Some Jace & Clary Moments:

City of Bones

“And next time you're planning to injure yourself to get my attention, just remember that a little sweet talk works wonders.”

City of Ashes

“You can close your eyes and think of England, if you like."

"I've never even been to England," she said, but she shut her eyelids. She could feel the dank heaviness of her clothes, cold and itchy against her skin, and the cloying sweet air of the cave, colder yet, and the weight of Jace's hands on her shoulders, the only things that were warm. And then he kissed her.

She felt the brush of his lips, light at first, and her own opened automatically beneath the pressure. Almost against her will she felt herself go fluid and pliant, stretching upward to twine her arms around his neck the way that a sunflower twists toward light. His arms slid around her, his hands knotting in her hair, and the kiss stopped being gentle and became fierce, all in a single moment like tinder flaring into a blaze.

Clary shut her eyes. You didn't say no to an angel, no matter what it had in mind. Her heart pounding, she sat floating in the darkness behind her eyelids, resolutely trying not to think of Jace. But his face appeared against the blank screen of her closed eyelids anyway - not smiling at her but looking sidelong, and she could see the scar at his temple, the uneven curl at the corner of his mouth, and the silver line on his throat where Simon had bitten him - all the marks and flaws and imperfections that made up the person she loved most in the world. Jace. A bright light lit her vision to scarlet, and she fell back against the sand, wondering if she was going to pass out - or maybe she was dying - but she didn't want to die, not now that she could see Jace's face so clearly in front of her. She could almost hear his voice, too, saying her name, the way he'd whispered it at Renwick's, over and over again. Clary. Clary. Clary.

"Clary," Jace said. "Open your eyes.”

“You promise."

"I swear on the angel. The hell with that. I swear on us."

"Why us?"

"Because there isn't anything I believe in more.”

City of Lost Souls

“Anyway that other thing we almost did in Paris-that's probably off the table for a while. Unless you want that whole baby-I'm-on-fire-when-we kiss thing to become freakishly literal.”
