My Chat with Sir Talbot

Hello and welcome!

My guest today is a knight that I’ve been waiting to get my hands on for a while… ahem… I mean to read his story… you know what I mean 😉

have your drool rags handy…. I give you Sir Talbot!


told you 😀

What is your full name?
Sir Talbot St. Claire

Do you have a nickname?
My wife calls me St. Claire.

What is one word best describes you?

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I am safe in my home, so I am wearing a white surcoat with gold embroidery, belted with a leather belt. I wear a leather wristband on each arm.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Aye, she knows me well.

What makes you laugh out loud?
I remember once, when my wife was chasing a goat that had stolen a peasant girl’s wedding dress. That made me laugh.

What is your favourite dessert?
Raisin pudding.

What is your favourite drink?

What is your greatest fear?
My greatest fear is that I will not find peace.

What is your favourite colour?
Red, the color of my wife’s hair.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
If my wife is with me, I wear nothing.

What is the perfect romantic date?
What would a humble knight such as myself know of romance? I am a fighting man. I know nothing more than protecting what is mine.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
No man would dare tickle me.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
The smells of hearth and home. Fresh rushes, boar roasting on the spit, freshly baked bread. Anything that reminds me I am home.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
The fire in her eyes.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Yes, the woman my king has betrothed to me. Lady Rhoslyn Harper.


What one word best describes her?

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
That is a good question. The author intended our story to be told in this one book. But when she met all those involved in my life she realized that was impossible. I have yet to prove to my wife that I will not allow our kings to tear us apart.

I can’t wait to read more of your story. Thank you for coming for a chat Sir Talbot!


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this chat.

Sir Talbot hails from the wonderful (and intense) world of “Claimed”, created by one of my favourite authors, Tarah Scott, to be released on March 27, 2015. This story will get 5 stars from me, review to follow.


Sometimes, the hero must be the villain…
Fourteen months ago, Lady Rhoslyn lost her husband and infant son to a fever. Now, by order of King Edward I, she is yanked from the healing tranquility of a convent to marry the king’s favored bastard knight. Rhoslyn has no intention of returning to the home where her husband and child died. Neither does she intend to hand over her fortune to the ‘Dragon’—no matter his sweet promises and warm kisses.

Talbot St. Claire tires of war. Seventeen years is enough. King Edward will never release him from service, but the king promises Talbot will find some peace in front of his own hearth. Talbot expects to find a horse-faced, hostile woman in the Scottish heiress Edward commands him to marry. Instead, he discovers a fiery Highland beauty worthy of a man’s respect…and love. Talbot determines to do anything to win his new bride’s acceptance. Anything except the one thing she demands: betray his king and embrace his Scottish heritage.

  1. Congratulations on the new release Tarah, sounds like a good one, again. Great interview, Eniko, you are probably walking around with a smug grin on your face.

    Fun interview! Villains turned heroes are more interesting than “heroes born heroes”. These tormented souls require an effort from the writer, but they are very intriguing for the reader!

  4. Melba Zuniga

    Great interview! I can’t wait to read this story!

  5. I joined the release party for the 27th. Some of my very favorite authors will be there. Would you believe I haven’t read one of Tarah Scott’s books? Shameful, I know. The medieval scene is relatively new to me and I’ve lots of reads to catch up on.

    You always seem to make me laugh, Eniko. How gross to pull out a drool rag! And villians who turn hero are some of the best. Sometimes villians are not all they appear from outward appearances. After all, something in their lives triggered the villainous, right, such as a deep hurt, and crushing emotional blow, etc.

    My congrats to Tara Scott on her new release.

    • Eileen!!! You have not read any of the books yet??? You have to. She writes in different genres under both names, so I am sure you will find something to your liking.
      Glad I make you laugh, but drool rags are no laughing matter 😉 I need them when I am around my book boyfriends 😀
      Thanks for dropping by!

    I do as long as the author can pull it off..I don’t want him to still be bad…well,maybe just bad in a good way! 😉

  11. liz Evans

    I love a villian gone good, nothing better then a reformed bad guy. Sir Talbot is magnificent, can’t wait for the 27th, I’ve pre-ordered mine 😉

  12. Tina Hairston

    Even villains deserve a HEA…at least some of them do 🙂

  13. Thanks so much, ladies. This book was a lot of fun to write. Talbot put me through the ringer. Lady Rhoslyn is a handful, herself.

    • Sandie Sicard

      Hi Tarah! I loved “Claimed” and have now read it twice! 🙂 I was so upset with what happened to Lady Taresa, even though I love the baby’s name. I really hope you write more about the pair..did Rhoslyn ever tell Talbot she loved him? Will he tell her, and would she believe him? What happens when the king gets the head? lol
      Thanks for writing this book..just loved it!

  14. Nicole Ortiz

    Congratulations on your new release. I don’t think I ever read about a villain turned hero book, but I am willing to give it a try.

  15. Mary M.

    I love a reformed bad guy, especially if he looks like Sir Talbot!

  16. florencia

  17. A bit late, but I have the winner picked by Sexy Mr. Random, he is very hard to pin down these days LOL
