My Chat with Greg… and Natasza?

Hello and welcome!

I just had to bump today’s post for the hunk you are about to meet.

Please welcome Greg! …. and Natasza? What an awesome surprise!

Do you have a nickname?
Greg: My team name in the Canadian JTF2 is Bigfoot. JTF stands for Joint Task Force for those who don’t know. We’re smaller in numbers than the SEALs, but we operate the same way, land, sea and air.

What is one word best describes you?
Greg rubs the back of his neck and gives me a hungry look from below his bangs. Used to be manwhore. My team is a little on the hardass side. Now, I’d say loyal. Completely and utterly loyal to my wife, Mattie.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Greg: Until I met Mattie Bidault, not a helluva lot, but now I can’t help laughing when she gets pissed at me. She’s got the Irish temper and a tongue to match.

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Greg: Wow, I’d have to say the ocean. I joined the Navy over twenty years ago. Never tired of it. It used to mean freedom to me. Now that Mattie and I live in San Diego, it means home.

Favourite place to spend time in.
Greg chuckles. You really want me to answer that? For a long time I probably would have said the Dark Angel. It’s a special club in Victoria, but now I’d say just hangin’ out with my girl. Doesn’t really matter where.

Writing! What started it?
Greg: Guess that questions for Nat.
Natasza: Because of a friend of a friend who visited me one summer afternoon. This gal had escaped a life of absolute nightmares. Sold by her parents into prostitution, she finally escaped with a young man and came to Canada. She ended up on my patio and we talked about the things we hadn’t accomplished in life. When I mentioned I used to write. She looked at me with those big blue haunted eyes and asked, ‘Why don’t you now?’ I didn’t have a good answer. That night, I sat down at my computer and started to write again. That was 2010, and I haven’t stopped since.
I am so glad you did!

If you could choose another career what would it be?
Greg: I’m doing it now. I used to be a Canadian Warfare Specialist. Anti-terrorism, diplomatic missions, that kind of thing. Now, I work at NAB Coronado as a specialist teaching SEALs.

Audiobooks! Any plans to have any of your books in audio format?
Natasza: I looked into it, and I’d love to give it a try. It’s on my to-do list when I retire.
I would love to listen to Thane’s voice … or Mace’s *sigh*

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
Natasza: Always. For A Warrior’s Challenge series, especially. Each book in the series addresses the life of a Special Operator, either a SEAL or in Greg’s case JTF2. When you protect Uncle Sam or Canada, there’s a price to pay. Each book delves into those hot topics, aside from the ones between the bed sheets.

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your books?
Greg: I’ll take this one.
Nat shrugs.
Go for it.
Greg: I think Nat’s audience is anyone who wants a little truth in their novels as well as high impact suspense or action. She’s not bad at writing contemporary stories, but the tales she writes with a military twist gives her more room to dig into the emotional side of the characters. If readers like a book with depth and intensity, those are the folks who’ll like Nat’s work.
Nat chuckles. Well said.
I agree!

What is next in your writing?
Natasza: The next book out the door will be the last for A Warrior’s Challenge series, called Code Name: War of Stones. It’s gonna rock the boat…big time. After that, I’ve got a new series starting this fall. The next series is about a team of retired SEALs and has a strong paranormal twist to it. Looking forward to that and retirement from the Coast Guard this fall when I can write full time.
I am so looking forward to more.

Thank you Greg for coming for a chat! And Natasza ! You always manage to surprise me LOL keeps me on my toes 😉 Congrats on your new release!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks for joining us and I hope you enjoyed the chat.

Greg hails from the just released “Code Name: Redemption”, book 6 in “A Warrior’s Challenge” Series by Natasza Waters. I met him before in the previous books, but I am glad he got his own story, I wondered what happened to him. I started it last night and it it so good.

CodeNameRedemption-banner.jpg

Rugged. Mysterious. Dangerous.

Lieutenant Commander Greg LaPierre, a Special Forces Operator, returns home after a seven-month deployment. He wants to shake combat from his back, but only days after his arrival the police accuse him of murder.

Someone is slaughtering women and leaving them at historic locations in the emerald city of Victoria. Whispers of Whitechapel drape the cobblestone streets with fear. Mattie Bidault, a local journalist, has been following the case from the beginning, and Greg is either innocent or she’s falling for the deadliest serial killer since Jack the Ripper.

My Chat with Tracy Marks

Hello and welcome!

Guess who came for a chat? The awesome Tracy Marks, that’s who! 😀

Profile Pic Tracy Marks.jpg

I recently discovered her works, quite by accident I might add, but I am so happy I did.

Welcome welcome!

Do you have a nickname?
I have a couple, but my favorite is that my boyfriend calls me Pancake instead of Honey or Baby.
I would like to hear the story behind that some day, was there whipped cream involved? 😉

What is one word best describes you?
Just one? Ooo that’s hard! Indecisive? 🙂

What makes you laugh out loud?
Lots of things! I love to laugh, and a good movie or book will make me laugh out loud. My boyfriend and I are also total goofballs together, and he makes me laugh on a daily basis.

lilacs.jpg

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I love the smell of lilacs, it reminds me of growing up. There were a bunch of lilacs on the street of my childhood home, and it’s the sweetest smell during the summer.

Favourite place to spend time in.
I’m a bit of a homebody, I love relaxing at home with my pup and my man.

Is there a genre that you refuse to read?
Nope. I’m voracious and varied in my reading habits… listening habits really, since I consume most books in audio form.

Audiobooks! What started them?
I’ve been acting onstage in film for years, and another actor friend of mine got into audiobooks several years ago. We were out for a drink and she was describing the process to me, and I remember just thinking, “Yes! I want to do this!” I went home that night and started looking into how to get started in audiobook narration.
I am glad you did and I am sure your many fans will agree with me.

Is there a genre that you would not narrate?
Not really! I may say no to a book here or there, but it’s on a case by case basis. There’s no genre that I would say a blanket no to.

If you could choose another career what would it be?
I think part of the reason I became an actor is because there are a ton of careers that interest me! One thing that I would have really loved to get into is dog training. I love animals, and dogs have a very special place in my heart.

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
My goal with every book is to honor and translate the author’s tone and vision. So hopefully the emotion and message changes from book to book. I’ve done a lot of dark romance, and I think part of why I’ve been successful in that is that I can bring a strength but also a vulnerability to my work.

Who is your intended audience and why should they listen to your audiobooks?
Romance readers/listeners! I’ve been lucky enough to work with some incredible authors, so I would say people should listen to my audiobooks because they’ll hear some really great stories.

What is next in your narrating work?
I have several projects coming up! Next out will be Destiny on Ice, a really fun hockey rom-com by S.R. Grey. Then I have a historical romance novella by Lauren Smith and a hilarious, sexy paranormal romance by Eve Langlais.

Elusive by L.A. Fiore was released a couple of days ago; Possession by A.M. Johnson, and LaClaire Nights by Dori Lavelle will be coming out soon. I’ve got more projects scheduled for the late summer and fall – it’s been a busy year!

Thank you so much Tracy for chatting with me in my little corner of the blogging world. I am looking forward to listening to more.

singing you got a fan in me ….

I would also like to thank you for sharing about Aural Fixation on FB, what an awesome group, the energy is sky high and can tell that the members do love their audiobooks and the voices behind them. Talk about being at the right place at the right time… I don’t feel so alone anymore in my addiction LOL

Thank you all for joining us and I hope you enjoyed the chat and you will find something you like to listen to in Ms. Marks growing discography. Here are links to find out more and keep up to date with her work.

So far I listened to Boston Underworld series by A. Zavarelli and it is a darker theme than my usual listen but I am so glad I took a chance. I gobbled them up, I came to love Ms. Marks’ extraordinary voice, so flexible and so much passion and I think it has a lot to do with my enjoyment of the stories, 5 stars across the board. Find my reviews on Audible under seelk.

 

2covers.png

I added quite a few to my TBL list, among them is Beast by A. Zavarelli released June 30, 2017 and Reckless Weekend by Eden Summers released July 5, 2017.

To start you on your listening journey, Ms. Marks is giving away 5 audio copies of Crow, book 1 in the Boston Underworld series by A. Zavarelli.

crow-cover.jpg

An Irish mobster. A missing friend. Two loyalties, ripping me apart.

I had a plan.

Get in, get my information, and get out. Easy, right?

Turns out, infiltrating the Irish mafia isn’t exactly what I thought it would be. I just wanted a soldier. Someone I could flirt with to get me in the door.

That’s when Lachlan Crow noticed me. Problem was, he wasn’t a soldier. No, he was next in line for the throne of the Irish underworld. And he was determined to hate me from the outset. My sob story about needing a job? Yeah, he wasn’t buying that either.

Too bad for him, I won’t let anyone get in the way of my mission.

Who cares if we have some kind of crazy chemistry? He’s the worst kind of wrong – and I would never in a million years be with a guy like him.

Because they took her from me, and I’m going to make them pay.

My review for it…

Winners will be chosen by Sexy Mr. Random from the comments on this post after 3pm EST on Monday, July 24, 2017. GOOD LUCK!

My Chat with Xavier, Marco and Sebastian *sigh*

Hello and welcome!

Today’s chat is so exciting I can barely contain myself.

I give you not one, not two, but three book boyfriends that I met a little over a year ago while listening to the first audiobook in the series. It was instant love that grew as I listened to all the books after. Even though all three are on my book boyfriend list, and love them each for different reasons, Marco is my fave, he is such an irreverent flirt, but shhhh don’t tell on me …  I am waiting at their door to be let in … here they come 😉

Welcome ! Welcome !

Marco… Marco… should I be surprised? Oooooh nice ass … Cheeky LOL

What is your full name?
Xavier Vincent
Marco Bartolli
Sebastian Corriveau

Do you have a nickname?
X: Well, Elaine calls me “doctor” but that usually only when she’s pissed.
M: Uh, nickname? Not so much, but you can call me “lover.”
S: Master, will do just fine.

What is one word best describes you?
X: I’d have to say devoted.
M: Is great ass one word or two?

Not on my account, I kinda like the view I grin and he laughs
S: I’m relaxed, in my jeans and t-shirt, waiting for Elaine to get home. We have a special treat for her.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
X: I think since it’s Elaine telling the story, we really can’t argue with how she sees us. But it’s hard to looking in the mirror regardless. So yes, I think she portrayed me accurately–the good, the bad and the ugly.
M: She tried, but there aren’t words to describe just how great my ass is.
S: For the most part, but since she only told the story from Elaine’s perspective, I would have loved for her to tell the story from mine, so that Elaine would know just how much she means to me.

What makes you laugh out loud?
X: Marco
M: Xavier
S: Marco
I agree, Marco is quite funny, made me burst out laughing quite a few times.

What is your favourite dessert?

S: Elaine’s Nutella-covered tits
Oh I remember that from when you returned from Paris…. I am looking around for something to fan myself with… is it hot in here?

M: Cognac
S: Scotch

What is your greatest fear?
X: Losing Elaine
M: Losing each other
S: That stupid fucking society

What is your favourite colour?
X: Red
M: Blue
S: Blue

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
X: I used to sleep in boxers, but ever since Elaine came into our lives I sleep in the nude.
M: Me too.
S: Same here.

What is the perfect romantic date?
X: The four of us spending the night at home in bed.
M: The four of us breaking some rules at the Louvre.
S: Tying Elaine up and teasing her until she begs.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
X: Not very.
M: Extremely. My feet especially.
S: I’m not, but Marco is.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
X: Elaine, because it reminds me of her.
M: Chocolate pound cake
S: I’m going to have to say the way Elaine smells after we’ve each claimed her. That scent is quintessentially us.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
X: They usually don’t catch my attention. That’s what made Elaine so special.
M: Whether or not she smile. Miserable people make me sad.
S: Tits.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
X: No, I have three special people.
M: Me too.
S: Me too.

What is one word best describes her?
X: Loving
M: Strong
S: Confident

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
X: Our story is a completed trilogy. I believe Renea may write a spin off in the future, but for now we’re enjoying our life with each other.

Thank YOU and hugs to Elaine!
DAYUM they are so hawt… Lucky Elaine!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well what do you think? I hope you enjoyed the chat.

GoodDoctor-banner.png

The three hunks hail from The Good Doctor trilogy and a short by Renea Mason. My love affair started last year in March when I visited Mary Menage‘s blog who was hosting the 2016 MENAGE SPRING TOUR and I won the first book in audio format and the rest is history. They are narrated by the award winning duo, Noah Michael Levine and Erin deWard. You have to listen to them A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! voices, the passion they add and the chemistry is incredible.

My reviews:
book 1, “Curing Doctor Vincent”, it won quite a few awards and after listening to it I agree.

“WOW WOW WOW”
Overall 5 stars – Performance 5 stars – Story 5 stars
If I could give a few more stars for the performance, I would. My first duo narration and OMG they delivered. Ms. Deward and Mr. Levine’s voices are amazing, the various accents, the emotions, the passion with which they delivered the story is spectacular, very realistic. I listened to some parts more than once.
This was my first book by Renea Mason and I have to say, I am hooked. Great story, kept me on my toes, I like that I can’t predict what comes next and that it evoked an wide array of emotions. I already purchased the next one in the series 😀

book 2, “Surviving Doctor Vincent”

“Even better”
Overall 5 stars – Performance 5 stars – Story 5 stars
I thought the first book in the series was really good, and it is, but this 2nd book is off the charts. As I listened to the story unfold I was amazed how it evolved and more secrets were revealed especially at the end WOW what a twist. Poor Elaine! Will she survive another revelation? I can’t wait to find out, and hopefully it will be in the next book.
The relationship between her and Xavier is combustive, adding Sebastian and Marco is even more so. All 3 add to the mix and she is one lucky woman. Fanned my face at the hot scenes. Again the duo narrating this book made this experience one that will stay with me for a while. The accents, the emotions, the powerful delivery is just amazing. It felt like I was there and experienced all the emotions, the pain, the laughter the characters felt and saw what they saw. Thank you!

book 3, “Loving Doctor Vincent”

“Intense”
Overall 5 stars – Performance 5 stars – Story 5 stars
I am sorry to see the journey end, I rather enjoyed tagging along Elaine and her men. This last book was quite intense with suspense mixed with hot erotic scenes , twists and truths revealed.
The narrators are amazing, so much passion, made the story almost real. Addictive for sure.

short story, “Tasting Paris”

“Delicious”
Overall 5 stars – Performance 5 stars – Story 5 stars
An hour of delicious and hot, this story is perfect for a quickie listen and get a fix of the sexy voices of this duo recounting how X, Marco, Sebastian rock Elaine’s world. Fan required 😉

Adventure in the book world – Romancing the Falls 2017

Hello and welcome!

This post has been a long time coming since the Romancing the Falls author reader event was on May 20, 2017. But you know how it is, life gets in the way of fun sometimes.

RTFposter.jpg

The event was aaaaawesome! Kudos to Freya Barker and her team for organizing this fabulous event.

As you can see from the banner, it was quite an incredible lineup of authors. I got to see and hug some of my fave authors I met at previous events: Marianne Maguire, Freya Barker, Kali Willows, Tricia Daniels, Rosanna Leo, Felicity Kates, Kayleigh Malcolm.

RTF-banner.jpg

And I got to cross off a few from my bucket list of ‘authors to meet’. When I saw their names on the list I squeeeed 😀

Renea Mason, I adore her and her books are so hot they are sizzling. I listened to all the audiobooks released so far. Can I say I am addicted and I want more? Of course I had to get all the books in print too so I can add them to my treasures. Keep checking back, some of her hunks are coming for a chat soon *sigh*

Renea-Mason-logo-Medium.png

Kym Grosso, with her ready smile and sense of humour, she charmed us all. I have a few book boyfriends in the “Immortals of New Orleans” series, my faves are Léopold and Dimitri. Jase Dean joined her too, he is the model on a few of her covers. He is so sweet and hawt of course 😉

Kym-Grosso-Banner.jpg

Also got to meet Jayne Rylon, and bought the “Powertools” series and received an I READ PAST MY BEDTIME tote bag that I’ve been eyeing for a while now. While Jean was busy, her hubby was quite entertaining and he gave me a good deal too 😀

totebag.png

I took part in a hunt for signatures and entered the contest for a HUGE gift basket filled with a lot of stuff. I didn’t win, but it was fun nonetheless.

HuntingWhores-front.jpg

Added a few more buttons to my ‘signings-only’ tote bag that has my all time book boyfriend Lothrariel (from the Elven Chronicles by M. A. Abraham) on the front… still MINEMINEMINE Mary 😛

bagWbuttons.jpg

Got some fun swag. The fan from Alexandria Sure came in handy for the hot flashes 😀 Mr. Gleason was the most entertaining in his presentation of his books. I will have to check them out for sure. The cake pops he was giving out were delicious, good thing I tried them at home and not during the event, I would have raided the table LOL

swag.png

Also bought fun ones, I burst out laughing when I saw these, had to have them. I will have to find out what is the story behind these, KM Golland has a wicked sense of humour judging by the merchandise she has. Will have to venture in her book world too.

ShitCrapBalls.JPG

Added swag bags filled with stuff to the registration bags.

swagBags.png

I brought two baskets, one from M. A. Abraham and one from Sharon Hamilton, for the silent auction with proceeds going to Niagara Falls Food Bank. Thank you again for your generosity MA and Sharon ❤

2baskets.png

I bid on a few myself and won one basket in the silent auction, the one from the “Wiccan Haus” a series I love, donated by Kali Willows and Dominique Eastwick.

WiccanHaus-basket-1.jpg

A recipe book was on sale to with recipes from attending authors and the proceeds went to the same charity as the silent auction. I bought 3 copies, they make great hostess gifts!

RTFrecipeBook

The silent auction and the recipe book sales raised almost $1,500 for the Food Bank. Isn’t that awesome?

These are the books I read/listened to but needed them in print, signed for my treasure shelf.

booksRead.jpg

These are the books going on the TBR pile. So many books, so little time, I should play the lottery and win big so I can read more LOL

books-2 read

The buffet dinner after the signing was quite good and got to sit at the table with authors and readers mixing together, have great conversations and laughs too.

I have a bag filled with awesome swag donated by the authors and would like to share the bounty with one of you, plus some surprises I will add to the bag from me 😉 Let me know in the comments who are the authors on your “I would love to meet” list. Sexy Mr. Random will pick a winner after 3pm on Monday, July 10, 2017. GOOD LUCK!

My Chat with Elijah!

Hello and welcome!

Before we start I think I should warn you… ice water and an industrial fan is needed.

And now that you’ve been warned, let’s do this.

I met my next guest a few days ago and I still get shivers down my body… the good kind, no worries 😉

Please welcome Elijah!

Elijah.jpg

he saunters in and… DAYUM Natasza! I know you warned me but… double DAYUM

What is your full name?
Hey Eniko, thanks for having me on your blog. My name’s Elijah Griffon Bach. I’m a Special Warfare Operator with the Navy SEALs. Last year I received a new assignment as lieutenant of SEAL Team One, Alpha Squad. I had big shoes to fill after Captain Patrick Cobbs was killed in action.

Do you have a nickname?
Sure! All SEALs have a team name. It usually isn’t something cool like you hear in the movies, but instead from something stupid we did in training or on a mission. My BUD/S instructors gave me the name Picasso and it doesn’t have a damn thing to do with painting either.

What is one word that best describes you?
Yeah, well, I’ve heard through the grapevine my men call me a hard-ass. Maybe I am, but it’s because I want my team to come home from a mission the same way they left: walking on two legs with all their body parts. Although I shouldn’t admit this, I guess I might’ve had a bit of reputation as a man-whore with the single ladies in San Diego. Had my reasons… until recently.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I’m sitting here on your comfortable leather couch in work dress. Officers normally wear this when they’re on duty at the base, but when I’m off duty, I love my Levis and a comfortable Tee.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Elijah chuckles Yeah, suppose she did. I had a bad habit of only spending a few hot, sweaty hours with a girl when I was off duty. Natasza knows all my secrets. Probably realized it was time for me to get my shit together and why she set Cricket and I up on the mission in Hawaii.

What makes you laugh out loud?
My girlfriend, Cricket. She calls my bluff all the time. She also calls me an asshole when I deserve it, but for some reason it makes me laugh. Guess it’s because she’s caught me red-handed.

What is your favourite dessert?
Hmm, gonna have to be the same answer. My girl, Cricket. She’s my favorite after dinner desert any day of the week.

What is your favourite drink?
Beer. Not very suave, but I’m a down-to-earth kinda guy. Love BBQ’d hot dogs and hamburgers too.

What is your greatest fear?
Elijah’s naughty smile slips into meaningful thought In my line of work danger sits high on the totem pole. SEALs are trained to ignore their fear. Doesn’t mean we don’t have it, but I’m always concerned I’ll make the wrong decision on a mission, putting my team at risk. That can have devastating results.

What is your favourite colour?
the smile returns and he nods Have to say the color of my girl’s hair. I love threading my fingers through it.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
he laughs A SEAL is always prepared, and I’m always prepared. Not a damn thing.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Before, I would have said a few drinks and a few condoms. he laughs Now, if I’m not deployed on a mission, then Cricket and I spend our time at home. Dinner. A walk on the beach and then the rest of the night is “R” rated.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Sweet Jesus, woman, you want me to give away all my secrets. Not very ticklish.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Something Cricket wears. She won’t tell me what it is, but I know I’m home when I walk into that woman’s arms and I spend a lot of time investigating every inch of her to remind myself I made it back alive.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Her eyes. Definitely, her eyes.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
I do, but if your readers want to know who she is, they’ll have to play Natasza’s online game to find out how we met.

What is the one word that best describes her?
Real. Beautiful. Honest. Faithful. One word isn’t enough. SEALs are away on missions for most of the year. Takes a special kind of girl to love one of us.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
I’m not part of any book yet. Least Natasza hasn’t put me in one. My story was created for Nat’s readers to have a little fun. She’s got a big giveaway for the month of May. It’s kinda cool. The reader steps into the story and becomes a character.

What is the deal with this online game I keep hearing about?
You can check it out at the link below. Nat’s cooked up an online game for suspense lovers. You launch from her website once you sign-up for her newsletter. That’s how you’ll find out who wins the giveaways. The reader is the heroine of the story, and you run a mission with my team of SEALs. Anyone can play.

I did play it and I couldn’t stop, it was great imagining I was Cricket. Thank you so much Elijah for chatting with me and hope to see you again, in your own book.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well? Did you enjoyed the chat? I know I did 😉

I am a big fan of Ms. Waters books and I hope you will give them a chance.

Mission Ad2

As he mentioned, Elijah hails from the game which anyone can play! For more details go to Natasza Waters‘s website and sign up to the newsletter to get the password to start the game.

RomeoTango.jpg

You’ve read romantic suspense, but have you ever been part of one? Tighten your boot laces. Join the mission online. Meet the Navy SEALs from the award-winning series A Warrior’s Challenge. Open for the month of May!

I am a fast reader and it took me just over an hour to complete the missions in the game Elijah mentioned and let me tell you it was very entertaining, suspense mixed with some panty-melting hawtness, I am fanning my face just thinking about it. While searching for the passwords to get to the next levels, I got to learn a few interesting things related to the SEALs. I hope you will join in too.

WarriorsChallenge-series.png

If you are new to the series, although the books can be read as stand-alones, I recommend you start at the beginning to understand better how the world evolves and how characters get involved.

You should check out the other stories too, the stand-alones.

Navy SEAL Commander Thane Austen (Ghost) treats his women like his missions: in, out and gone. Returning from deployment to find Kayla is his new tactical specialist poses a challenge, one he’s never faced. When the defiant beauty with haunted eyes becomes a serial killer’s target, the Commander has the excuse he needs to close ranks around her. Fear is a word unknown to the legendary SEAL until he realizes love can be as dangerous to a warrior as combat. Convincing Kayla to surrender to him and catching a killer is a mission he won’t fail.

My Chat with Lilith !

Hello and welcome!

Oh you will love the awesome guest I am chatting with today. I met her a few years ago, but now she is back to tell her own story. She is gorgeous, funny, sweet and sassy and I love her so much. Check out the chats with other characters from the series here and here.

Please welcome Lilith!

Lilith.jpg

What is your full name?
Hi everyone, I’m Lilith Dale, High Priestess and Moon Goddess. It’s a pleasure to meet you all and thank you, Ms. Eniko, for coming to Nevada today.

Do you have a nickname?
Yes, and like most of my friends, Ms. Eniko, you can call me Lil.
I have to confess, that used to be my only nickname, but just recently, I seemed to have acquired a few more.
One, my brother gave me. It’s actually a road name, Sunshine. It’s not as tough as most of the bikers I met, but I think it suits me. The bikers think its for my sunny disposition, but little do they know I can actually blow them all up, which kind of puts a fun spin on the saying, blowing sunshine out your ass. I can literally make that happen, so I’m kind of bad-ass myself.
The next names are from Samuel, he calls me Lily-girl, Lily, or Flower. As a witch, lilies and flowers have many meanings. Sam doesn’t know this, he just likes the names because they are sweet and that how he sees me. How could I not fall for that.
The last few names are from Lazarus, and let me tell you, when he calls me Little Dove, Bird or Gem, it makes my heart flutter. But when he calls me his Goddess, phew, I need a fan because that is serious panty dropping stuff.

What is one word best describes you?
I think my brother nailed it with his nickname… Sunshine. Don’t you think?

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Oh, this is one of my favorite style dresses from the fifties, a black rock-a-billy dress with a puffy skirt. It has a teardrop neckline with a red bodice, to showcase what nature gave me, of course. I paired it with a red belt and matching Mary Jane shoes.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Oh, my, yes! I know I can be complicated at times, but Ms. Maguire did a terrific job of showing my personality without it coming across as too snarky or crazy.
I don’t think you could be snarky or crazy, even if you tried. But I like your sass… and your sense of humour.

What makes you laugh out loud?
I love a good comeback or tease, especially if it’s directed at me. I mean, if you can’t laugh at yourself then you need to get off your high horse. People are just to darn serious these days, light up, I say!

What is your favourite dessert?
Well, I know Ms. Maguire put it in the book and I don’t want to give it away. I’ll just say this, they are an old classic and so good… Darn, now I want one. I must ask Marty to bake me a batch when we get home. Goddess knows, no one in this damn desert would know how.
Oh yes I remember, love that combination…. those sound so yummy, will have to try them one day. Maybe you will share some with me next time we meet.

What is your favourite drink?
I seem to be drinking an awful lot of Jack Daniels and Coke lately. I also love a nice shiraz, and some bourbons are quite delightful too. It depends on who I’m with as to what I drink, and like the people, I have many favorites.

What is your greatest fear?
I used to selfishly fear being alone the rest of my life because I would never find true love. Now that I’ve grown up, so to speak, and have my eyes open to reality, I worry greatly for my friends and family. Our world is a dangerous place, we get challenged and threatened almost daily. If something happened to one of my loved ones… Well, I’ve already gone down that road and it wasn’t pretty, let’s just leave it at that.

What is your favourite colour?
As a witch, I am very attuned to color, it is how I view the world. Every shade holds a different meaning, picking just one shade, one color, would be impossible. I simply cannot choose one.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Oh, what a naughty question, Ms. Eniko, and rather personal. Well, if you must know, I prefer to sleep draped in the warm flesh of two rather handsome men.

What is the perfect romantic date?
A moonlit evening in the forest, laying on a blanket as we stargaze and share silly stories.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Please don’t tell anyone this but, my feet are extremely ticklish. We are talking snot-giggles, if you touch them.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I love a late spring foggy morning in the forest, when the Earth is warmer than the air and it causes a mist to rise. That humid scent all around, mixing with the many smells of nature, that is home to me. As nature is being reborn from a winter slumber, so too do I feel the possibilities and new beginnings of life being reborn within myself.

When you look at a man what catches your interest?
The eyes, always. They are the windows to our souls and with just one look, you can uncover so much about a male. His strengths and weaknesses, his pain and pleasure. Most importantly, if it is the right male, one who truly loves you, he will show you not only his history, but also his heart.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Yes, very much so!

What is one word best describes him?
Him? How about them? For the first, I would say, complicated. For the second, I would say, challenging, but in a good way.
You are so lucky Lil! sigh

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?

Bequeath-banner.jpg

Yes, my book, Bequeath, is the third in the series. As for what is to come, I can’t answer for Ms. Maguire, but I will say, she isn’t close to being done with us.
We are currently still in Nevada cleaning up many loose ends, and unfortunately, making new ones. Such is the case, in our Underground Otherworld. Until we can find peace for the supernatural, I think Ms. Maguire has her work cut out for her, so I suspect you will have many more adventures with us.
I will give you a hint to the next book, September told me you all love to be teased… The title is Blessed, it takes place in Nevada, and is the story of one male, and what I hope will be his one mate because I do like her, it’s looking kind of rocky at the moment, though, but she does have a strong independent spirit LOL he’s in so much trouble and you will learn more history, even some secrets from our world, as we take you on another adventure. Oh, and I hear it’s blazing hot with scenes that would make even the Queen and her men blush. I won’t say anymore as I wouldn’t want to upset our author, she kills people for a living and I do not want to be on that end of the pen.

Oh I am so looking forward to reading Blessed. Thank you so much Lil for spending time with me. Say hello to your oh-so-yummy men, you lucky gal.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you for joining us and I hope you enjoyed the chat.

3 Bequeath-cover.jpg

As she mentioned, Lilith is hailing from Bequeath, book 3 in The Legacy series by Marianne Maguire.

Lilith Dale has spent over three-hundred years wandering alone, in search of the answers to her past, while seeking out her most secret desire…to find true love.

Being a witch with great powers and unique gifts has made fitting in with other supernaturals almost impossible, especially when the coven’s strict rules have her doubting her every action. It’s not until Lilith finds a place at Queen September’s side in the Underground Otherworld that she finds contentment and new purpose to her life as the court’s spell caster.

But life in the court is never simple or easy…

Lilith soon finds herself on a Royal mission to stop those responsible for the brutal murders of magical beings. While she accepts the challenge given to her by her Queen, she struggles with visions that show her own death as the outcome.

Will Lilith choose to cross into the fade for the answers she seeks, and for the hearts of the two men she loves, or will she Bequeath her magic and let fate decide her future?

my review – 5-stars
Lilith is my fave female character from the series and I was so happy to hear that she will get her own book. She is funny, sassy, sweet and loyal to the core. And after all this time she finally finds her HEA with, not one, but two men, lucky gal. “Bequeath” is a great addition to the series I came to love, where we find out more who Lilith is, her powers, about the workings of the Court and delve deeper in the Otherworld. I highly recommend it and the series.

Bequath-teaser.jpg

If you are new to the series, although the books can be read as stand-alones, I recommend you start at the beginning to understand better how the world evolves and how characters get involved.

To keep in touch with Ms. Maguire give her a like and if you chat with her, say hello from me. You should like her page on Facebook, she posts sexy shoes and oh-so-yummy-drool-worthy Wet Wednesdays sigh among other sexy posts. Ms. Maguire’s Pinterest is a place worth checking out too, make sure you have your drool rag handy 😉 Check out my chat with her in 2015. I had the chance to meet her in person and in addition of writing these yummy stories, she is such an amazing lady.

One lucky reader will get an ebook copy of “BEQUEATH”, courtesy of Ms. Maguire. The winner will be chosen by Sexy Mr. Random from the comments after 3pm EST on Monday, May 15, 2017. Good luck!

My Chat with Leontide

Hello and welcome!

As usual when I invite one of M. A. Abraham’s hunks, they have to do their own thing, and forget about answering my questions. But… I AM NOT COMPLAINING 😉

Read on about my newest adventure…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I shut down my computer and again it is way after quitting time. It has been a hellish day and the rush requests haven’t quit all day. I want to go home, grab a bite and loose myself in a book, my usual escape from reality.

I rush to the exit, open the door, and step into the arms of a man that hadn’t been there only a moment ago. I swear it is true, he appeared out of nowhere. Oh yes, did I mention he has abs that were made in Heaven, with the white wings to match? I look up… and up … and up …. and I can’t contain my smile …

KYLLAN!!!!!!

I blush and stammer,So sorry, I didn’t see you there.

Kyllan chuckles, I know he has heard my thoughts and my blush deepens. I don’t know why I even try when I know they are sensitive to thought patterns.

Timing is sometimes everything, Kyllan replies.

Yes, it most definitely is, I respond, with a sheepish grin. I mean, what is a girl to do or say?

I have brought you a guest, if you don’t mind, Kyllan announced. The Siren Elder, Leontide. I believe you have heard of him.

Yes, I had, and yes, I am curious. As Kyllan moves aside, to allow me to see Leontide, I am expecting an elderly gentleman to appear before me. Hot damn. These aliens need to be labeled with warning signs: ‘Danger ladies, can cause overloading of Human circuits.’ I nearly break into a sweat.

You are Leontide? I stammer. I never stammer!

At your service, Leontide answered with a bow of greeting.

He thought that he would bring you a surprise, Kyllan chuckled.

As if this isn’t surprise enough, he has the physic of someone around twenty-five years old. How do they keep themselves in this kind of shape? I am both jealous, as well as running on hormone overload.

It is all the swimming and flying we need to do to live, which is something I thought you might enjoy. This is why I have come, as well as to meet you. Kyllan is always talking about you, and for him to be impressed by a Human, I thought you had to be something special.

They certainly weren’t in the back of the line when it came to handing out charm. I look at Leontide’s sparkling eyes, and I know there is more to this than he is telling me. All right, I will bite, and anything he offers actually. Where did that thought come from? He is also talking about swimming, and although it isn’t really the right time of the year, I am curious.

You needn’t worry about the temperature of your lakes, we know it is cold and will take precaution. I have brought someone to keep you warm and safe in the water. Leontide assures me.

Warm and safe in the water? There was ice in that water only a week ago, I exclaim.

You will find that is immaterial to us, Leontide informs me.

My thoughts were, ‘maybe immaterial to them, but I will freeze my bootie off.’

Allow me to introduce you to Sailon. He is one of our people, about your age. With your permission, he will show you the wonders of you oceans, or at least some of them. Leontide offered.

Sailon stepped out from behind Leontide and smiled. I could have cried. The temperature of the outside world also just spiked at fifty degrees Celsius. Yes, I could use a cold swim right about now, although the lake might not be cold enough. He is not only built like a surfer, but his blond sun kissed hair over a well-tanned face makes him look like a model for one. I am dying here, but I may go happily.

Sailon smiles, as he holds out his hand and purrs, I can’t think of an expression close enough to cover that sound, this will have to do. Name your pleasure.

I take a deep breath, clear my throat and bless the day I told my son he could have a sleepover at his friend’s. I am going to Heaven.

I will be near, if you need me, Leontide teased.

I am remembering Sten and Errisa, as I think, ‘Hopefully not too close.’ Then I answer him, I have always wanted to go to the South Sea Islands.

South-Sea-island-3.jpgsource

Our pleasure is making you happy, Kyllan will transport us, but we can’t be gone for long. Despite that, we will make sure your time with us will be pleasurable. Leontide assured me with a wink.

Ta-Ta people, we are off, see you when I return.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well, what do you think?

When my chats are hijacked my adventures are always oh-so-satisfying, don’t you think?

Intercession-coverSM

That gorgeous hunk on the cover is The Tribunal Elder, KYLLAN sigh

You will meet the Siren Elder, Leontide in INTERCESSION, book 4 in the Tantalus series by M. A. Abraham, releasing on May 10, 2017. He is such a character, funny, with a mischievous streak that will have you laughing.

The Tribunal Elder has lived through more millenniums than he cares to think about. He is not the type to shirk his duties. He is a force to reckon with; yet he is known to be a kind man. To settle a dispute between the Martians and the Human, he will travel to Mars. Before he returns home, this problem will be settled, one way or another.

The message from the Martians is clear, remove the settlers from the surface of their planet, or they will die. The Tribunal Elder soon discovers there is more to this than those who are in command know about, for the act that precipitated this action had multiple events. Someone is working in the background, manipulating forces, to create a power struggle between the two species.

Will he allow the Tantalarians be pulled into a conflict that they have and want nothing to do with?

Read Chapter 1 here and find the pre-order links are here.

My review:
“This book brings a major twist in the series, that I didn’t expect. An exciting continuation of the series where we find out more about Tantalarian history, a conflict on Mars and a positive outcome for all involved. I recommend it with 5 stars.”

Tantalus-bookmarkPRINTTime to update this banner and soon 😉

If you are new to the series, although the books can be read as stand-alones, I recommend you start at the beginning to understand better how the world evolves and how characters get involved.

My Chat with Anton!

Hello and welcome!

Today I am bringing one of my book boyfriends over from the old blog because I can’t let him be forgotten. I was at Anton’s house for the chat, I am soooooo excited to share it with you again. He speaks my native tongue, Hungarian.

And there he is… 

oh my…. Rosanna!!! You should have warned me! Oh ya, you did warn me!
I can feel his powerful aura before I am even close to him, and those eyes are piercing, like he is looking right into my soul. I do not feel scared, ok… maybe a bit, but more like awed *sigh*

Isten hozzott Enikö!
(Welcome Enikö!)

I know I should not be staring, but I can’t stop. I try to respond, but no sound comes out, he hands me a glass of raspberry juice, I gulp it down … mmmm my favourite …

Thank you for accepting my invitation and answering my questions.
Have a seat, then we can start.
He smiles that gorgeous smile at me! I shuffle my notes, drop them a few times… Taking a deep breath…

What is your full name?
I am Anton Gaspar, Grand Prince of the Federation of Hungarian Tribes. No middle name. My father, Janos believed middle names were a waste of time.

Do you have a nickname?
he laughs heartily
Well, my mate Marci has a few for me, none of which she would appreciate me sharing, I’m afraid. Let’s just say she calls me “Tiger” a lot. When she wants to tease me, she will curtsey and call me, “My Liege.” And then I spank her.

What is one word best describes you?
his eyes flash in mischief
Focused.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Well, Enikö, because you have been rather naughty and visited me in my bedroom, I have nothing on.
I can certainly see that!!!
You’d better hide or Marci will see you. My little lynx is quite protective of my manhood.
I am not hiding! I am not here to threaten your manhood and I do know she is protective, I would be too, but you are the one with no clothes.
I smile wickedly

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I must admit, I didn’t appreciate the way Ms. Leo depicted me at the beginning. After all, she made me sound misogynistic. I don’t hate women. Quite the opposite. However, because Ms. Leo was telling a story, I shall forgive her this time. She can keep her head… for now.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Very little, I’m afraid. I have never really been one to laugh much, as you will gather if you’ve read my story. However, my Marci always manages to put a smile on my face. The thing I loved best when we were becoming acquainted was seeing how her lynx plagued her, forcing her to give into her desire for me. I did manage a few laughs over that. Once the kissing began, the laughs stopped.

What is your fave dessert?
Would it be wrong of me to say my mate? She is sweeter than any dessert. However, she makes a wicked little cookie called a “Whoopie Pie.” By all that is holy, they are delicious. I call them her “sex pies.”

whoopie_pie_004.jpg

source

Never heard of whoopie pies, they do look yummy.

What is your greatest fear?
I’ve already experienced it. I almost lost Marci. Hell could never compare.

What is your fave colour?
Marci’s eyes are a unique golden brown. I’ve never really thought about colors I like, but if I had to pick one, that would be it.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
he laughs
Come now, Eniko. I’m a hot-blooded shifter male. What do you think?

What is the perfect romantic date?
he raises eyebrow
A day in bed with Marci. If you’ve read my book, you know I have a lot of lost time to make up for.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I am not ticklish. But I am more than happy to offer tickles. I love that spot on a woman right on the curve of her waist.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
If I answer this question the way I want to answer it, you might need to censor me. Let’s just say my mate’s scent drives me wild, and it intensifies at certain moments. That is my favourite scent.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Intelligence shining in her eyes. A quick wit. Loyalty. Yes, a beautiful body and face are always attractive, but they mean nothing if the woman behind them is a only interested in superficial things.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
I’ve mentioned my mate Marci Lennox, now Gaspar. And she will be the last woman in my life.

What is one word that best describes her?
Sweetness. She is my kitten.

Can you tell us a bit about what the future holds for the readers of the series?
‘Predator’s Salvation’ is the last book in the series and was released March 20, 2017

I better shuffle out before Marci returns, just to be on the safe side.

Thank you again for answering my questions. I am sure the readers will be pleased.

Viszontlátásra!
(See you soon!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you for coming by and reading my chat with Anton, hope you enjoyed it. He is my book boyfriend from Predator’s Refuge, book 3 in the ‘Gemini Island Shifters’ series by Rosanna Leo.

3-predators-refuge-cover.jpg

A tiger shifter searching for a safe place to hide. A lynx shifter trying to prove herself. Neither expecting the desire that flares between them … nor the danger stalking them. Suspense and passion fill the pages of Predator’s Refuge, Book 3 of Rosanna Leo’s thrilling romance series, Gemini Island Shifters.

Lynx shifter Marci Lennox has worked at the shifter-friendly Ursa Fishing Lodge and Resort all her adult life. It’s more a home to her than a job. When her boss goes on vacation, putting her in charge, Marci is thrilled. Finally a chance to prove she has the mettle to run a resort.

Her confidence is shaken when new employee Anton Gaspar appears. One look at the mysterious tiger shifter spells trouble for Marci and for her sex-crazed lynx. Anton is judgmental, condescending, and a little misogynistic. Unfortunately, Marci’s lynx thinks his tiger is more delicious than an oversized bag of Maltesers.

It becomes difficult for Marci to remain neutral near Anton, especially when she learns of his troubling past and unusual family circumstances. However, when dangerous incidents occur on the resort, the lynx woman and tiger man join forces to combat the threat to the lodge and its guests.

Harder still is the quest to combat their explosive feelings for one another. As they explore their mutual passion, they realize the danger at the resort is more insidious than they ever envisioned. Their dreams, their love, and their very lives are at stake.

My review: “Another delicious story in the Gemini Island Shifters series, this is the story of Marcie and Anton. As with the other books, the author managed to pull me into the book from the first page, suspense, humour, steamy scenes and a HEA makes this a great read. Totally recommend it!”

My Chat with Gertrude

Hello and welcome!

Guess who I have here chatting with me?  A lady I met a few times in her adventures with the pocket watch.

Please welcome Gertrude!

What is your full name?
Gertrude. That’s it. One name, like Cher or Beyonce. But I’ve been around since the dawn of time, so I’m the original.
You sure are LOL

Do you have a nickname?
No. I’m simply Gertrude.

What is the one word that best describes you?
There isn’t one word. People often like the word “angel” but human languages are limited at best. I’m an immortal spirit with a job to do, choose the word that works best for ye.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Well, I’ve just told ye human languages are limited, but as far as is possible, Ceci has managed quite nicely.

You have the ability to go back and forth in time. Do you have a favourite era?
I exist outside of the boundaries of time and space so I can be where and when I need to be at any moment. And as to a favorite era, oh, my precious lass, that would be like asking a mother to choose her favorite child.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Now that’s an interesting question. What I’m wearing depends more on ye then me. If ye’re reading this on a beach, I’m probably wearing a broad brimmed hat and a bathing suit under a beautiful batik cover-up. If ye’re curled up next to a fire on a cold night, I’m probably wearing a pair of comfortable trousers, a cozy sweater and fuzzy slippers. If ye meet me in a medieval market, I’m likely to be wearing a dark cloak with lots of pockets. So, ye tell me, what am I wearing?
This is what I see.

Lynn Waite.jpg

source

You are shrouded in mystery and I think that is your allure. Why do you choose to appear as an older woman?
To accomplish the work I need to do, I must assume a form that can communicate with humans and appear nonthreatening. I must also be perceived as wise and believable. This form suits my sensibilities. However the variety and form ancient spirits choose to take is unlimited.

What makes you laugh out loud?
The responses I sometimes get when I offer the pocket watch to someone who doesn’t quite believe. Some of ye may remember the sweet lass who wanted me to seek the help of a mental health care professional.
I guess you can’t blame her, in today’s society we are conditioned not to believe what we cannot touch or understand.

What is your favourite dessert?
Rhubarb crumble.

What is your favourite drink?
That depends on where I find myself. I do love an exquisite cup of Chinese tea, but if it’s a warm day, I prefer it iced. Sometimes a cup of hot chocolate is just the ticket and other times an iced mocha is perfect. Of course if I am chatting with Ceci about my adventures lemon drop martinis are in order.

lemonmartini.jpg

Oh I heard about Ceci’s Lemon Drop Martinis and I wouldn’t mind trying it one day. I’ll have to ask her for the recipe.

What is your favourite colour?
Green. The color of trees and grass…it’s the color I associate with life.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
My favorite smell is a baby’s head. It’s the aroma of new life and unlimited possibilities.
Oh I love that smell too, innocence and sunshine.

For the readers who have not met you, what is the one advice you would give them?
Keep an open mind. Be willing to listen. Don’t judge. These three simple things may open new worlds for ye.
Very wise advice!

What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
I have never been in the business of predicting the future. I will continue doing the work I was created to do and I suspect Ceci will continue to tell ye about it. I do know Ceci is revisiting Duncurra, the place where she started. Her next book will be about that young Tomas who ye met first in Highland Solution. After that I expect she’ll tell ye another of my stories.

Thank you so much for chatting with me. I am looking forward to read more of your adventures.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hope you enjoyed the chat as much as I did.

PocketWatch-banner.jpg

Gertrude is hailing from one of my fave series, “The Pocket Watch Chronicles” by Ceci Giltenan.

coverfinalsm-thechoice.jpg

The newest installment, “The Choice” released today. I can’t wait to get lost in the story!

CONGRATS CECI !

It includes two complete, full-length novels.

Sixty days in another life, another time…it’s tempting. Now the decision to accept the pocket watch is yours. What choice will you make?

Sara Wells is in Venice, preparing to leave on a fourteen day cruise to Greece, when Gertrude offers her the pocket watch.
Will she take it? You choose.

If you accept the watch, Sara will travel to eighteenth century Venice where she meets a young Scottish expatriate who owns a small ship building company. Will their love for each other be enough to overcome all obstacles?

If you refuse the watch, Sara will remain in the twenty-first century, where she will encounter a traveler from the past and more intrigue than she can pack into the books she writes.

One choice, two souls, two different happy endings.
