A YA paranormal romance book that took me by surprise last year was Deborah Cooke’s Flying Blind. With exciting aerial dragon battles, a girl with mystical powers, and cute boys, it’s the perfect book when you’re in the mood for a funny, lighthearted read! We’re happy to welcome Deborah to the blog today as part of our Literary Swoon series, in which our favorite YA authors tell us about a romantic scene that they’ve never forgotten. Don’t forget that this scene may contain a spoiler.
