Hello and welcome!
My post is a bit late … well … I was a bit busy with these hunks as you will see shortly …
Good thing I am sitting down, my legs are weak just looking at these hunks. I think I am in trouble, I have to drink something cold …
I have Calan and Machar here! Welcome! Please sit anywhere you like. Shall we start?
I take a drink of my ice tea and mentally keep my fingers crossed I don’t stutter… much. I do tend to do that when I am face to face with yummies!
What is your full name?
Calan: Calan of Kirkwall, shortened to Calan Kirk, as befitting modern times. winks at me Rolls better off the tongue, doesn’t it, lass?
Mack: By St. Joseph’s Wood, you never stop flirting brother. Looks at me, his smile no less devastating *sigh* And I am Machar Kirk, his slightly older, but more experienced, brother.
Do you have a nickname?
Mack: My friends call me Mack. So you can call me Mack, darlin’.
Calan: rolls eyes He thinks it’s charming, but I’ve known trucks with the same name.
Mack: Well, hasn’t anyone ever given you a nickname?
Calan: Not sure I’d call it a nickname, but the lasses do tend to call out “Oh God!” when they’re with me.
I choke on my ice tea and Mack is tapping my back gently. I better not drink while they answer… chuckle
What is one word that best describes you?
Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Calan: looks down Jeans. A T-shirt. And my favourite vintage leather jacket, the one my mate Maggie managed to cover in mud not long ago. But that’s a story for another day.
Mack: Well, as my mate Beth could tell you, I spent some time as a rock roadie. I have a collection of rock band T-shirts. I’m wearing my Pink Floyd shirt today. But I prefer how it looks on Beth, especially when it’s all she wears.
Personally I think they would look yummy in anything… or nothing 😀
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Calan: That pesky lass Rosanna Leo made me out to be some sort of playboy.
Mack: You are, or at least you were until you met your Maggie.
Calan: That’s beside the point.
Mack: Ms. Leo did a fine job portraying me, on the other hand. She showed me as I am: intelligent, somber and caring.
Calan: And a slave to your cock.
Mack: You’re such a peedie piss weasel, Calan.
What makes you laugh out loud?
Mack: Modern music. By St. Winnifred’s knockers, will someone please explain Justin Bieber to me?
Calan: laughing loudly My brother makes me laugh. That and my Maggie, when her pretty red curls get in her eyes. Gets me every time.
What is your fave dessert?
Both men eye each other and respond as one We might offend your readers if we tell you the truth.
What is your greatest fear?
Mack: I’ve lived my greatest fear. I had to watch my Beth as she suffered after being ravaged by an evil finman. I still can’t wipe those memories from my brain.
Calan: pats him on shoulder The same goes for me. If anything ever happened to my Maggie, there would be hell to pay.
What is your fave colour?
Calan: Red, like my Maggie’s hair. No, blue, like her eyes.
Mack: Make up your mind, piss weasel.
Calan: Blue, then. And yours, my much older brother?
Mack: grins Beth’s skin turns this interesting color of pink after we…well, never you mind.
What do you wear when you go to sleep?
both men shrug
Mack: We’re selkies. Nothing.
What is the perfect romantic date?
Mack: Swimming nude in the waves with Beth.
Calan: I was going to say that.
Mack: You swim nude with my Beth?
Calan: blushes Give me strength.
How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Calan: eyes me I won’t answer that question.
Mack: I agree. I vote we tickle Eniko instead? Where are you ticklish, love?
No, no, no. No way I am telling you that!
I swat Mack’s hands away You stop that!
they both chuckle
What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
both men burst into laughter
Mack: There’s another one we can’t answer, lass, for fear of sounding indecent.
When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Mack: A sparkle in her eye. And a lovely set of hips that I can clutch.
Calan: I’ve always been a breast man. Maggie’s, in particular.
Do you have somebody in your life now?
Calan: Yes, I mentioned my lovely mate Maggie. She’s originally from Toronto, but I’m so glad she found her way to Orkney.
Mack: My Beth is from Florida. She came to me through rather tragic circumstances, ones I wish I could change for her sake. That being said, I’m glad we found each other, and I won’t let her go now.
What is one word best describes her?
Calan: smiles Maggie is stubborn, but in the best way.
Mack: Beth is brave, braver than anyone I know.
Can you tell us a bit about what the future holds for the readers of the series?
Calan: chuckles Well, I’ve heard Rosanna Leo plans to tackle our brother Edan soon. I can’t wait to see that red-haired bastard in her mischievous clutches.
Mack: And not a moment too soon. When he gets his book, Eniko, can we come back and play with you, lass?
Of course you can! I wink at them You can come an play with me anytime!
Looking forward to reading Edan’s story too.

Mack: What about us?
OK OK!!! Come here! I am dwarfed as they each lean in for a hug… mmmmm … sigh
As they leave I turn the fan on high, is it hot in here???
Thank you for stopping by and reading my exciting interview with two of the hunks from the Orkney Selkies series by Rosanna Leo.

Calan‘s book – The Selkie
This was supposed to be her year. However, after losing her job and discovering her fiancé cheating, Maggie Collins has her doubts. When her grandmother dies, she hits rock bottom. Maggie travels to her grandmother’s home in Orkney, Scotland to sort through her gran’s things, only to discover the old woman has left her a seal pelt as her inheritance. She also learns that others are after the pelt.
To add to her frustration, Maggie’s dreams are filled with luscious images of a long-haired man, images that draw her to the magical beaches in Orkney. Although she’s lost her trust in men, this dream man inspires her with a lust she’s never known before.
Calan Kirk has also been dreaming. Dreaming of Maggie, the mortal woman who arouses him as no other woman ever has. Meeting her in the flesh when she arrives in Orkney is nothing short of spontaneous sexual combustion. But she is a human, and not to be trusted. He needs the seal pelt, not a red-haired temptress.
As a thief ransacks Maggie’s grandmother’s house, Maggie and Calan are thrust together. They must search for the animal skin, a mythical relic which once found, will either bring them together or rip them apart forever.
Machar‘s book – Selkie’s Revenge
On the beaches of Orkney, Scotland, an evil entity stalks mortal women. Machar “Mack” Kirk is a selkie man with a haunted past, one that has prompted him to become a hunter. He prowls the beaches at night, his arrows aiming for the finman who took his first love.
Beth Pedersen also watches the sea. The haunted widow has suffered losses of her own, ones that have crippled her into a state of stony grief. Beth can no longer feel, can no longer see color and life. Until the day Mack Kirk saves her from a mysterious foe, flooding her world with brightness and foreign temptation.
As Mack and Beth fight their growing passion, the finman escalates his attacks. Before long, Mack realizes he’s not just playing Good Samaritan. He wants Beth, too, and will do anything to ensure his lover isn’t taken by the finman. But can he protect his mate from a monster with no soul?
