My Chat with Zander

Hello and welcome!

My guest today is quite a character. I have been watching him for a while and so glad to have him here to chat for a bit.

Please welcome Zander!

What is your full name?
I have been known by a couple of names. In the heavens, I am Ruadan, the God of mystery. On Earth, I am just simply Zander Paine.

Do you have a nickname?
A nickname is an endearing name we give to someone who is close to us. It is usually a name associated with a trait, either for their personalities or physical appearance, that reminds us of them. I have stayed away from people most of my life so I’ve never been given one of those endearing names.
It is true, as a biker, I have a road name, Zee. This I gave to myself, and it is used to hide who I am. That is the nature of the criminal world. However, recently, I have let myself become a part of a community. I am with my own kind and a part of the Queen’s personal protection team. I have found lost family and discovered my soulmate, and in opening myself and my heart, I have been given many new names. Some are for who I am, brother, lover, even beast. Some are in the another language, while others are given to get under my skin. And, in all honesty, I love each and every one of them. Especially, the ones mo àilleacht likes to call me, like ollphèist olc meaning bad monster and cowboy.
Those Celtic words sound so delicious on his lips … sigh

What is one word that best describes you?
Mysterious
You can say that again, your story held quite a few surprises.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Unless I’m in my corporate office in Toronto, which is rare, I always wear a version of these jeans, t-shirt, boots and leather jacket, like I have on now.
Oh I do like what I see… a lot 

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
At first, I was surprised she even wanted to write about me at all, but Ms. Maguire did something no one else has ever tried to do. She got me to come out of the shadows and reconnect with my kind. In doing so, I have discovered so much and I am truly thankful to her for that. So, yes, I believe she represented me well.
I am glad she convinced you, I’ve been waiting for your story for a while now.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Any of the sarcastic comments that come out of Paige’s mouth. She has one hell of a sharp tongue, but some of the things she says are seriously belly busting.

What is your favourite dessert?
Silly question, my sweet Pea.

What is your favourite drink?
Beer and bourbon, of course.

What is your greatest fear?
Funny, I never had fears until recently. I mean, I have already died once and been to the burning pits in the Underworld so what is there to fear after that. But now…Now I fear for the safety of our Queen, she is always been challenged. I worry for my sister, my mother, my brothers, but I especially fear that something will happen to my mate, and the first female Alpha, Paige. It keeps me up at night, in fact.

What is your favourite colour?
Does it have to be one? I actually like a mixture of orange, gold, and red…The color of fire.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
People wear clothing when they sleep? How uncomfortable!

What is the perfect romantic date?
A burger and beer in Paige’s kitchen, just us sharing our time together.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I’m not ticklish in human form. However, if you swear not to tell Paige, I’ll let you in on a secret. he leans in and whispers… In my true form, that of my beast, if someone was to, say, pet my neck backwards, raising my scales, I’m super ticklish.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I love the smell of nature with a slight hint of horse. It’s the natural essence of my beauty and it drives me wild.
Horse? It took me a moment to understand what he meant, then I remembered Paige has horses DUH

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Mmm, her confidence. There is nothing sexier.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Absolutely!

What is one word best describes her?
Bad-ass!
That she is! 😀

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yes, my book is the fourth in the series. What does the future hold? Well, no one knows what Ms. Maguire is thinking and I doubt any of us could even try to figure her out. However, I can tell you she holds all of our secrets and our kind are the biggest myth of all… It’s bound to get darker, wilder, and crazier from here!

I know what you mean, Ms. Maguire likes to tease and she does it mercilessly 😀 Thank you for the visit to my little corner of the blogging world and looking forward to seeing more of you in the future.

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

Thank you for joining us today and I hope you enjoyed our chat.

Zander hails from Blessed, book 4 of The Legacy Series by Marianne Maguire.

Secrets, lies, and betrayals are in everyone’s past. They write our histories and define our world. Zander Paine knows this more than most thanks to a second chance September Rae’s Mother blessed him with centuries ago. Zander considers this blessing a curse that left him not quite a supernatural, and not at all who he once was. Alone, he wandered in the shadows spreading the false history of the supernatural- until Queen September is finally born.

After a chance meeting with the Queen, Zander is sent on a mission to Nevada with the High Priestesses to kill a warlock who has been siphoning magical powers. He’s there to prove himself worthy, but a lost family connect has him reliving his past as he tries to help the beautiful she-wolf, Paige Sky, escape her step-father’s claim. When the Queen’s court comes to his aid to help him rescue Paige, the rest of the supernatural community decides to challenge the Queen and her court for their Kingdom.

Zander is determined to show his loyalty, to right the wrongs of his shattered past, and finally atone for his sins, but the odds are not in his favor. When the truth about his mysterious past is finally revealed and the battle begins, will the Queen, her court, and the only woman he’s ever loved, turn their back on him or will he win it all and be truly blessed?

Check out this awesome trailer

my review: 5 stars

It took a while to get thru the book and not because it wasn’t good. It is really good, I mean REALLY good. I was savoring it slowly like a good chocolate that melts when it hits the tongue. I knew when I met Zander in the previous stories that he was special and after reading his story I know the author did him justice. He also got a special mate in Paige, she is a kickass heroine. Their encounters are explosive, in and out of bed. Make sure you have a fan handy 🙂 The saga continues and from the beginning there is the usual grip that brings the reader in and holds prisoner to the last page. When is the next book coming, Ms. Maguire? Need more.

The series is a unique take on the paranormal erotica genre mixing vampire, wolf shifter, demon, angel, human and adding suspense, laughter and lots of hot, sexy scenes.

If you missed my chats with characters from previous books, makes sure you check them out to get an insight into their world. First up was Sabre and then September’s hunks, followed by Lilith, my fave BGF from the series.

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 pages a like. 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, make sure you have your drool rag handy though! See Zander’s pic there too. Her website is a wealth of information on the books and the characters, check out the Genealogical Map, so cool! We chatted back in 2015 and I had the chance to meet her in person, she is such an amazing lady.

One lucky reader will get an ebook copy of “BLESSED”, courtesy of Ms. Maguire. The winner will be chosen by Sexy Mr. Random from the comments after 3pm EST on Monday, December 10, 2018. Good luck!

Until next time read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!
