Oh, I love those!

Yes, I think she did. I’m quite secretive, so she could only go with what I allowed her to imagine.

Humans who say I don’t exist.

All of them.

A smile.

Being absolutely anywhere with Matthew.

Not very ticklish, though I discovered I have a tickly spot behind my ear. Matthew sometimes kisses me there, and it makes me giggle.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Baked apples and pine cones. Reminds me of Christmas.

When you look at a man what catches your interest?
Matthew is the only man who has ever caught my interest. I gave up eternity for him and would do it again without hesitation.
Eternity?

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Matthew. He is my life.

What is one word best describes him?
Genuine.

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

My Chat with Hayley – KaLiCon Reader’s Bundle – day 7

Hello and welcome!

Another heroine is joining me today, read on and find out who she is.

What is your full name?
Hayley Elizabeth Fitzgibbon

Do you have a nickname?
Rory calls me ‘Hales’. Since we were kids. I used to dislike it but these days, it’s not so bad.

What is one word best describes you?
Passionate.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Black skirt, white tank top, and red heels.
Dayum girl! Those are wicked, stand up and let me see them better.

redheels.pngsource

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I do, yes. Kacey realized it was time for me to tell my best friend how I feel about Rory. She didn’t allow me to hold back, and to finally confront it head on. Kacey’s encouragement means so much to me, and I’m happier than I’ve ever been.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Funny jokes, the camaraderie between best friends who know one another so well that nothing is off limits. Nothing is more healing than laughter.

What is your favourite dessert?
Lemon meringue pie. My grandmother used to make the best.

What is your favourite drink?
Non alcoholic – coffee. No day can start without at least two cups.
Alcoholic – margaritas.

What is your greatest fear?
Heights. I’m not a fan of being up higher than how tall I am. I like to keep my feet on the ground.

What is your favourite colour?
Red. There are so many shades of it, I can’t pick just one.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing. I don’t like to get tangled up in anything.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Quiet time. A nice quiet dinner with great conversation, maybe a walk along the water or through a park. Good quality time, just being together and appreciating one another.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Oh my gosh. Is there anyone alive who isn’t ticklish? How could someone not be. I’m ticklish in multiple places. Especially my feet, but also under my chin, behind my knees. Well, that’s all the places I’ll tell you about.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Lilacs. They remind me of my childhood and my grandmother. The moments when we’d go pick them from around her yard. There were a gazillion lilac bushes on her land and we’d pick them fresh daily. I loved those moments and cherish the memories.

When you look at a man what catches your interest?
His eyes. I believe a man’s eyes can tell so much more than what he might say verbally. I love gazing into Rory’s eyes. They always express his kindness and humour, as well the laugh-lines around his eyes are very adorable. His eyes also show me how much he loves me. Every woman should be able to read all the love her man has for her through his eyes.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Rory, whose been in my life forever. We grew up together, have gone through so much, and we finally admitted how we truly feel about one another a few years ago.

What is one word best describes him?
Sincere. I could go on and on about all his amazing qualities, Eniko, but I love how honest and genuine he is. Rory is always sincere in his advice and guidance with me and our friends.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
The Revved & Ready books are not a series, but a collection of stories with the common theme of Mustangs. Kacey’s favourite car is the Mustang, ranging from year to year, and who doesn’t really? Their long, sleek and sexy. I think my heat-o-meter ramped up when Rory bought his many years ago. giggle The Mustang in each story also seems to be the way for everyone to come together at the crucial moments that they need to realize what’s right in front of them, what they miss, or for comfort with the past.

There are many more to come in the collection. Kacey has some incredible adventures coming up that readers will absolutely enjoy. I’m thrilled that it all started with mine and Rory’s story, 69 Mustang. Each one is more incredible than the last. Readers have to check them out.

They sound awesome, I am looking forward to reading your story. Thanks for chatting with me Hayley.

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

My Chat with Zera – KaLiCon Reader’s Bundle – day 6

Hello and welcome!

Have you read the previous 5 chats? You should. They are awesome characters.

Today I have another heroine and she is kickass, I can’t wait to read her story. Read on and see how awesome she is.

What is your full name?
Zera Chancelay

Do you have a nickname?
They call my Chancy – because I tend to be a risk-taker.

What is one word best describes you?
Hmm… Badass?

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
My typical military issue attire for training; combat books, camo pants, white tank top and a ponytail.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Kali gets me, more so than most, I think. Deep down, I think she sees a little of me in herself. Maybe that’s what she manages to portray my thoughts and feelings so well in my story.

What makes you laugh out loud?
These days, not much. The weight of the world on my shoulders and all. If I had to pick something, I’d say the playful banter between Elyse and Ghost. Those two are polar opposites, and yet perfectly suited for each other. Under their constant bickering, they really love one another.

What is your favourite dessert?
Anything but rations, to be honest. I’m a sucker for Strawberry Cheesecake. Man, I could kill for a slice right now! We don’t get the good food on base. scrunches nose in disgust
Got some mini cakes for you, taste this one.

Mini-Strawberry-Cheesecakes-6.jpgsource

What is your favourite drink?
A double Whiskey Sour. In fact, plenty of them will suit me just fine, thank you!

What is your greatest fear?
Losing everyone I love. Oh wait, been there, done that. Okay, not being able to save our two worlds from complete and utter destruction.

What is your favourite colour?
I’m partial to black, but the camo green kinda grows on me.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
My tank top and panties. I always keep my pants and boots at the edge of the bed. You never know when the enemy will be crashing through your door.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Oh, wow. I had the perfect date. Sushi, Saki, secret messages of adoration and stolen kisses in the dead of night. Other times, a good sparring session of KAPAP sets my blood on fire.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I honestly don’t know. No one’s ever dared try to tickle me. It seems most folks are a little intimidated by me.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
My favourite smell is hardwood burning in the fire place. It reminds me of home. My in-laws have a beautiful cabin in the Catskills. The crackling fire is one of the few things that calm my warrior spirit.

When you look at a man what catches your interest?
There’s only one man who catches my interest. His shoulder length, dirty blonde, the way the stray wisps dance around his perfect face. His full, luscious lips, tanned complexion and the gold flecks mixed in the blues of his irises. It doesn’t hurt to look at his broad, muscular shoulders and rock-solid chest, and just the site of him in his camo pants and tank top. The way it hugs his corrugated abs… sigh I’m sorry, where was I?

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Whoa, that’s a story in itself. First, I had the love of my life, then I lost him. Then, I sort of connected with a duplicate. That turned out to be a major problem, there were bullets, explosions… let’s just say, it’s complicated.

What is one word best describes him?
Perfect… stares at the wall blankly Where was I?

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Let’s just sum it up with, Kali has yet to write a complete series. She tends to be a single story kind of author as of late, but this story is just the beginning. There is room for an endless series, a TV show, major motion picture, star-studded cast like Chris Hemsworth, Charlie Hunnam… Oh man, there is no end to the possibilities. Considering how long it Kali took to write this story, it’s hard to predict the future. You know, she’s constantly distracted by her damn dragon fetish. Maybe if we genetically modify one, she’ll get inspired? Anyway, I’ve got tons of work left to do, and to be honest, there is a little unfinished business in this story. Uh hmm, eyes the author with an evil glare Kali will have to speak to that later. I will just add, I’m pushing her for more.

Thanks for taking the time to chat with me. I try to sneak online between training sessions and combat. It’s always great to see your awesome interviews on SEELKs FIRE &  ICE. I can’t believe you actually picked me to talk to! Maybe my whole saving the world assignment upped my profile?

Thank you Zera for chatting with me, I am looking forward to reading your story and I will give you a hand in nudging Kali to get more stories… and a movie with Chris and Charlie? Sign me up.

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

Hope you enjoyed the chat. Zera hails from “Utopic Paradigm” by Kali Willows. The book will release in the fall. The KaLiCon Reader’s Bundle has chapter 1 from this book.

My Chat with Quinn – KaLiCon Reader’s Bundle – day 4

Hello and welcome!

Here we are on day 4 and today’s guest is another heroine. Read on, find out who she is and what she has to say.

What is your full name?
My full name is Quinn Grace Jamieson. Grace was my maternal grandmother’s name.

Do you have a nickname?
Mmm, not really. When I was little my parents called me Quinny. Oh, and a boy in high school used to call me “Q”. He’d said, “Good morning, Q.” or “What’s going on, Q?” Stuff like that. But he was the only one that called me that.

What is one word best describes you?
I don’t know. I guess maybe, dedicated. Ha, or maybe I should say naïve. No, I’ll stick with dedicated. It’s more positive. Anyway, it’s what I’ve heard others say about me. It’s not something I think about.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Well nothing glamorous. I’ve only been out of the hospital for a few days. The wound on my right side is still tender. So, I am wearing a loose-fitting purple t-shirt and a pair of grey boxer shorts with the waist band rolled down a little. Even though my wound is covered, I can’t stand any pressure on it.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I think so. I mean it was a pretty traumatic event for me. She did a good job showing that despite my attack I still tried to… Sorry, the memory is pretty raw. It’s a difficult thing to go through. I have an appointment tomorrow with a psychologist. You know, to talk about everything. Anyway, yes, the author portrayed my reaction accurately. It’s what I do. That instinct to try and save a life is ingrained in me.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Right now, nothing. Not because I don’t want to, but because it hurts too much… physically. But what makes me laugh out loud are unexpected things. You know a quick-witted comment that you don’t expect. Or maybe an action from someone or some animal that is unexpected. Things like that.

What is your favourite dessert?
That’s a tough one. I love dessert, but I exercise every day so I can eat whatever. Well, not now. I haven’t exercised since the day of the… of the incident. Can’t for another few weeks. So, I guess I’ll be staying away from sweets for a bit, or at least full portions. Maybe, I’ll eat a little.
Anyway, if I have to pick one, I’ll say cheesecake, all kinds.

What is your favourite drink?
Alcoholic? Ciders. Non-alcoholic? It’s a toss up between coffee and water.

What is your greatest fear?
Wow! I guess I’ve lived through it. I mean that wasn’t my greatest fear until it happened. Fighting for my life… what could be worse?

What is your favourite colour?
It used to be red. Not anymore, not now. Maybe I’ll like it again some day. I do like purple too though. That was always my second favourite. I guess it’s moved ahead now.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Before incident – nothing or just underwear. Well, maybe a light t-shirt in the winter. Now, a loose-fitting tank and my underwear.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Do I have to answer this question? Sorry, it just reminds me of… him… the incident. I can’t think of romance, dating, before or in the future. I don’t know.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Very ticklish. Well besides the usual places like sides, underarms, belly. I’m strangely ticklish at the back of my knees. Oh, and between my shoulder blades.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Vanilla and fresh ground coffee. The vanilla reminds me of my mother’s baking. And the coffee, well I just like the smell. Always have, even years before I liked the taste.

When you look at a man what catches your interest?
Sorry, I can’t answer this. Nothing, at the moment.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Next.

What is one word best describes him?
Really? Do you not know what happened to me?
Sorry, I do not know.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
No, this is not part of a series, but the author may eventually turn this short story into a full length novel.

Thank you for your time, Quinn. Wishing you speedy recovery.

Yvonne: He brought you home.
Gemini: The next story involving the three of us is also free. It’s called Aeternum and is available on Elizabeth’s author page at Prolific Works. I believe these two stories will eventually be the beginning of a novel called Diamond Dogs. I apologize in advance for the graphically erotic nature of Elizabeth’s stories.

My Chat with Ilène – KaLiCon Reader’s Bundle – day 1

Hello and welcome!

As I mentioned in the intro post, Andi Lawrencovna came up with this great idea and a few of the authors signing at KaLiCon 2019, joined her to make a bundle where each share a short story, giving the readers a chance to get to know their writing styles and the worlds they created. It will release August 1 and will be available FREE until the event starts.

My first guest! SQUEEE

I am not about to be ambushed by Elves or Aliens this time, but for some reason, this visit has been on edge more than any other I have had in a long time. The only advance warning I got came by messenger…

message.png

translation for those of you who do not read Elvish: Brace yourself, I come bearing tales of the past our friends would probably rather I forgot. There was nothing else on the paper, but I could swear I heard a maniacal laugh after I finished reading it.

It is for this reason I am standing outside of my chat room and bracing myself to go inside to face what is to come up. I walk through the doorway, into the room and notice a Female Elf inside. She is dressed in black leather that covers her from top to bottom like a second skin and the skirts are cut on the sides from hem to hip. She is also seated in my chair with her feet propped up on the desk and crossed at the ankles. I am tempted to say something, but the devilish look on her face accompanied by a challenging gleam in her eyes stills my tongue. Sure, you are free to drip mud and water all over my notes, make yourself at home. I walk over to where she should have been sitting and make myself comfortable by emulating her. Unfortunately, I can’t do it with the same degree of grace. Despite this, the only difference between us is that I am not checking the sharpness of a knife with my thumb or bristling like a porcupine with others. I refuse to allow her to outdo me in my own office though.

Hello Lady E, my name is Ilénè, The Dark Elf speaks with a sultry voice that brings up images in my mind that doesn’t belong there. Damn, but if she is half as dangerous as she sounds, we are in serious gimshee.

I look at her mocking grim and know she can read me like a cheap novel. No matter, I reply, Your ancestor, King Liessen, was much more eloquent.

Ilénè laughs, her amusement sounding of pure joy, I am sure he was. His reputation isn’t about to die any time soon in the Elven Empire either. I am willing to bet it was well earned too.

I return her smile and answer, The secret of his behaviour in this world is safe with me.

This isn’t what I came for, but it has been rather fun. Do you spar as well as interview? Ilénè asked hopefully.

Never touch the stuff, I admit.

Well, if you ever interview Gabriella Eagle Claw, it is the only way you will have any fun, Ilénè informed me. She can be as canny as the rest of us, but under it all is a plain boring sense of duty. Cambria, on the other hand, will show you a good time if you let her. That girl does know how to party.

Taught her all you know, did you? I chuckled.

Those who plot together and all, Ilénè answers in a flippant tone. Of course it doesn’t work so well against her sister, but occasionally we get lucky when she is otherwise busy and not looking to be ambushed. An excited flush covers Ilénè’s face as she giddily adds,Gabriella on a mission to even the score is a thing of beauty. She has such a diabolical mind. A girl can hurt for a whole week after she is finished, but it is so worth it.

As I continue to smile, I shake my head and think to myself this girl is certifiable. I have heard about Gabriella Eagle Claw and wouldn’t want to butt heads with her.

About this time, I hear a soft knock on my door and Ilénè calls out, Come in if you dare and you better make sure it is worth the interruption.

With that, two Male Elves walk through the doorway and they are wearing very little else but a dark bunny suit and a suggestive smile. A little less and there would be nothing left for the imagination. Oh, but they are drop dead gorgeous. The only thing that seems out of character about the costumes are the weapons they carry. Bunnies don’t wear swords and knives tucked in strategic places. How they found those places I will never know. As I check out their … COUGH … costumes, I notice other things bunnies don’t have… things like fur lined collars and cuffs hanging from whatever there is to hold them. 

I glance at Ilénè and a seductive purr comes from her direction, Well, well, the boys want to play. Time to leave the office for a bit of fun and games. Care to join the party, Eniko? Always room for one more and I have the most interesting games room.

I can’t help but grin as I reply, I am sure you do.

Ilénè chuckles as she answers, I am, after all, in training to become a member of the Dark Elven Elite Squad. I also fully intend to be the head of it one day. To do this, I will need to know everything.

I watch her leave with the two hunks and shake my head. She is definitely a descendant of Liessen , King of the Dark Elves. I am pretty sure she had a good time. Dark Elves are not known for their shyness LOL

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

Ilénè hails from “The Legacy” by M. A. Abraham, a short story from the Elven Empire where I would love to move once M.A. convinces one of the Elven Mages to open a portal for me 😉

I had the chance to read the story and you will love it. Here is an excerpt:

Mariss looked at Gabriella in suspicion as he asked, “Where did you ever hear about anything like you said?”

Ilénè preened, as she openly grinned and answered, “You seem to forget, Dark Elven Princess here, hello. If you think what she said was explicit, you should try living at my place.”

“Your parents allow talk like that in front of you?” Mariss’ Life Mate exclaimed. “You are a child.”

“If you think the words paint a picture, Ranèdel, you should see the visuals,” Ilénè sniffed. “As far as the rest goes, I might be a child, but I have ears and eyes. Only a baby wouldn’t be able to put two and two together.”

“You are corrupting my sisters,” Mariss stated. In his indignation, the syrup and feathers were pushed aside.

“Correction,” Ilene pointed out. “I am educating them. I would rather have them know about these things than have some randy Dark Elven teenage boy try to take advantage of their innocence. We will work on the heavier stuff in a few more decades.”

“If the young men in the Dark Elven Kingdom value their nuts, they will stay away from my sisters,” Mariss mumbled.

“I heard that,” Ilénè grinned. “I will warn my brothers. They keep saying Gabriella and Cambria can’t grow up fast enough for them.”

As Ilénè dealt with Mariss, Gabriella and Cambria turned their charms on Ranèdel “If it wasn’t meant to be there, you would have thought our brother would have gotten this sticky mess off of you immediately,” Cambria tsked.

“You take care of the sap and I will help with the feathers,” Gabriella offered. “Men. No sense of a woman’s needs.”

Mariss heard what Gabriella said and turned to her angrily, “I was about to tend to some of those needs when you set off your trap. You little hooligan.”

Gabriella and Cambria stood as if stricken. While twin sets of silver blue eyes filled with tears, Ranèdel admonished Mariss. “That is quite enough. You are a big bully. All they were doing was trying to help. As for this mess, they weren’t anywhere near us when that bird landed on the overhead branch causing it to break. It was just our bad luck everything happened at the same time. Look at the poor darlings. You made them cry. Your own baby sisters.”

Gabriella and Cambria were tempted to send each other looks of triumph, but that would have been a dead giveaway. It was enough to know they had won this round. The look on Mariss’ face, however, told them he was far from being fooled. He was well aware of what they were doing, and what they had done. He just had no way of proving any of it.

With an abruptness that caused Ranèdel to gasp, Mariss conjured a cleansing spell to whisk the gooey mess covering them both away, then took her hand and led her away. To make sure he made his point with his sisters, he shot them a look over his shoulder to tell them this was not over. He was surprised when Gabriella returned one to him that she was ready and waiting for him.

Born and raised in the central part of Canada, M. A. Abraham still lives on the prairies, while she writes her stories. She was known as the storyteller when she was a child, and those she told were played when they were at a loss for something to do. Her friends and her would act out the character parts, as they raced around outdoors, in summer as in winter. At thirteen, a friend challenged her to a writing contest, to see who could make up the best story. Well, after winning that, she continued to write, and never stopped, although her life didn’t run in that direction later.

Her sidekicks, Thena and Tath, the two Siamese cats, aptly nicknamed The Gorgeous Bratz, rule her house and she tries to keep them in line. They are spoiled beyond reason, but there are a couple of things she will not share with them, her extensive Snoopy collection, and her books. The Snoopy stuffies are hers exclusively; the books are for those who want to read. The question she often asks, when people go for a signed copy, “Which would you like? Elven Warriors? Or Winged Aliens?” She has them both in the worlds she creates.

Discover new worlds – KaLiCon style – intro

Hello and welcome!

As I make the final preparations for my trip to RTC in a few days, my thoughts turn to KaLiCon in October. I will be returning, as ‘bossy’ PA to Mary Ann (M. A. Abraham) I look forward to it, planning a few surprises for the Elven Games v2.0 😉

Andi Lawrencovna came up with this great idea and a few of the authors signing at KaLiCon 2019 joined her to make anthology, where each share a short story, giving the readers a chance to get to know their writing styles and the worlds they created. It will release August 1 and will be available FREE until the event starts. How awesome is that?

I invited their heroes, heroines for a chat and starting August 1, 2019 I will have them posted here for you to enjoy, one each day, give you a little more than the books and have fun while doing so.

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

Sten & Errisa … surprise!!!

Hello and welcome!

If you are following this blog for a while, you know that I get the most unexpected visits and they are usually from one of two places, the Elven Empire or Tantalus. Not that I am complaining, far from it, I really enjoy myself every time and I hope you do too.

Keep on reading to find out what happened earlier today.

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

I look up from my desk when a sudden cool wind distracts me from the edits I am working on and notice a man ushering a gorgeous looking woman through the doorway of my office. They are both wearing capes and have most of their faces hidden from view, but I can tell she is drop dead gorgeous, and he is enough to make a woman kill for possession. DAYUM the cape can’t hide his physique, but  I want to see more, much more.

Eniko? A deep voice enters my mind, telling me this is another alien from Tantalus, but there are no wings on these two.

I nod quietly and he smiles as he adds, I needed to make sure I had the right place and the right person.

The couple removes their capes and I can feel the drool collect in my mouth. I also catch the whimper that threatens to escape from my throat.

I am Sten, and this is my fiancée, Errisa he quickly introduces them both.

I can’t believe I am looking at these two. I happen to recognize them from one of the stories I read and I give a sigh of appreciation, along with a huge smile, as my mind thinks, how often does anyone get a chance to interview a merman and his mermaid Life Mate? I am talking about reality here, not one of those fake shows that you can tell have been formatted to suit the storyline.

Who sent you? Did they stick around long enough for me to thank them? Can I ask you questions? Hear your Siren voices? adding deep in my mind ‘jump your bones?’ I hope I am not rattling too much and you don’t read my mind, Boy, do I hope you aren’t reading my mind. I have never met a Siren before and I am suddenly feeling shaky.

Errisa immediately rushes to get some water for me as she hums a light song that I find soothing. It feels so good I can only wonder if she added something to the water. I turn to ask her, she smiles and speaks with a light melodic voice. I only took the impurities out of the water. You will feel better in a few moments, she assures me.

What can I do for you? I am game to offer you an assortment of services, I continue to speak without engaging my mind.

Sten grins, and I have a suspicion he has plucked the thought out of my mind where I considered a wish to jump his bones. I feel my face go up in flames and Errisa rushes to get more water, in hopes this might help my condition. Nope. But some ice might help to cool my cheeks. Sten only watches me with a grin on his face and chuckles. The cad!

I will be alright, I speak. I know it is a lie, but I have to do something, other than pretend to recover. Sten isn’t helping as he folds his arms across that incredible looking chest and continues to watch Errisa and I. What can I do for you?

We had hoped you could help us find a place where we can hide from Echoe and Vikor. They are hounding us to death. Sten explains.

I can’t help the nervous giggle that comes out of my mouth, as I remember Errisa’s sister and her husband’s actions. They still making your life interesting?

Something tells me you were told too much about what went on, who should we blame for that? Errisa asked.

I won’t tell, I replied, adding in my mind ‘Do your worst, I won’t rat out my friend.’

I see, I think we should make a little social call to our writer friend, Errisa suggested to Sten.

Perhaps she can help create a safe zone for the two of you. I add.

I can tell Sten is considering both ideas. In the meantime, I ask, Would you answer some questions? You are the first Sirens I’ve have met.

Sten frowns, as he wraps his cape back around his gorgeous body and then helps Errisa with hers. Then he comes close to forcing her out of the room. He stops, looks at me and comments, I am sure you are right, but we are leaving anyway. We have a writer to throttle… errr… I mean talk to.

Don’t hurt her, I call out. She hasn’t finished writing all the books pertaining to your series yet.

Sten stops and asks, This is important to you?

I reply, Probably to you too.

You do know she doesn’t deserve you, Sten declares.

I know, I can’t help but grin, But, she is stuck with me anyway.

As we are with her, Sten points out.

You won’t consider doing an interview? I can only hope and ask again.

Perhaps sometime in the future, Sten states, then escorts Errisa out of my office and they are gone.

In my mind I shout very loudly in hopes they hear me, That is totally unfair.

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

Well, there you have and I hope you enjoyed it. I did, despite leaving me frustrated. I know, I am greedy, I always want more… more information… more time… more… more… more … 😀

Sten and Errisa hail from the Tantalus series by M. A. Abraham, their novella, THE SIREN CONNECTION will be releasing on September 18, 2018. I hope you will join them and find out how bad Echo and Vikor are, they made me so mad at times, I wanted to smack them, how much interference they ran between Sten and Errisa.

TheSirenConnection-cover-lowrez

The oceans of Tantalus are teaming with Aquarians, the dangerous, predatory mammals that feed off anything that lands in their territory. What is strange about them is that they are avoiding the part of the ocean, close to the shoreline where Trysuil is planning to build the city of learning for the future generations. His question is, why this area? What is keeping them at bay?

As the water is no place for a winged man, Kyllan turns to his friends, the Sirens. They will soon get to the bottom of this, but it will come at a cost to the Tantalarians. The Sirens take one look at Tantalus and the sight of all that water feels like home. The home they knew on Mars never called to them in the same way and they know it is time to move on.

My Chat with Cassie!

Hello and welcome!

I have few BGF (book girlfriends), usually is the hunks that grab my attention.

One of the few joined me for a chat today and we are celebrating.

Welcome Cassie!

What is your full name?
Cassie Wilson

Do you have a nickname?
I guess Cassie is technically a nickname, but no one has ever called me Cassandra. Except my mom when I was in trouble as a kid.

What is one word best describes you?
Energetic. Positive. Passionate.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I’m going to work at the Flatiron Five club tonight, so I’m wearing my fave dancing shoes. They’re black leather thigh-high boots with spike heels and I think they go perfectly with my little black, short dress. It drives Reid crazy when we meet again at the beginning of our story, because he can’t see exactly where the boots end. I’m going with that. I’ve twisted up my long blonde hair and painted my nails red, to match my lipstick. It’s going to be hot at the club tonight!

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Yes. She made me share a big secret with Reid, one I’ve been keeping for a very long time – even though I didn’t like it at the time, I felt better afterward. Lighter. Maybe it was time to let that old stuff go.
That was quite a secret, I am glad you were able to share it, I know it helps.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Reid. He makes all these one-liners, deadpan, and cracks me up every time.

What is your favourite dessert?
Something sweet and thick, like chocolate syrup, but I don’t want it on ice cream.
I like how you think LOL

What is your favourite drink?
Something fizzy – like sparkling water, or champagne.

Muscateller-glasses

Champagne is mine too, here is my fave sparkling wine, had a bottle chilled to celebrate today. Last year’s crop was pretty good.

What is your greatest fear?
It was going back to Montrose River, the town I couldn’t wait to leave. I guess I need a new fear now.

What is your favourite colour?
Red. Or black. Or both together.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing.

What is the perfect romantic date?
One that ends with great sex.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Ha! Of course, I am, but I’ll never tell where!

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Fried chicken from Pappy’s in Montrose River. It used to make me think about hanging out with my friend, Tori, at my uncle’s garage and eating take-out in the summer, but now it makes me think about jumping Reid in Tori’s kitchen.
That scene is really hot!

When you look at a man what catches your interest?
His eyes. His hands. His smile. The way he looks at me.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Reid Jackson.

What is one word best describes him?
Unexpected. she winks
You can say that again!

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Some Guys Have All the Luck is book 4 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke. Book 5 will be Going to the Chapel, will be published September 27, 2018 and book 6 will be Bad Case of Loving You, to be published January 22, 2019. It’ll be Theo’s book and I’m looking forward to learning more about his unrequited love. I also have the first tattoo that Chynna gave away at F5 and which launched the Secret Heart Ink series. I guess hmm I have the tattoo that proves her right, that this tattoo given on a full moon brings love to the person who wears it.

I am excited by what is coming! Thank you Cassie for dropping by, I really enjoyed your story and the chat. Maybe you can put a good word in to Chynna and she will agree to come for a chat.

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

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

Flatiron5-covers

As Cassie mentioned she hails from the Flatiron Five Series by Deborah Cooke and Some Guys Have All the Luck is her story, which released today.

CONGRATULATIONS Ms. Cooke!

Adding Reid to my BBF list, Ty has competition for number 1 spot in the series now, or maybe I am taking both. Remember Ty? He chatted with me back in December 2016, if you missed it check it out here.

Cassie has everything she wants…
Cassie Wilson’s life is pretty much perfect, with a dream job, great partners—and the freedom to do whatever she wants whenever she wants. The last thing she wants is to go back to Montrose River, the town she couldn’t wait to leave, and revisit the past. But when her oldest friend asks her to be a godmother, Cassie sees an opportunity to make a difference in Emily’s life. Maybe teaching Emily to dream big will be her legacy. Besides, one weekend in the Midwest won’t kill her. She’ll be back in Manhattan so quickly that they won’t have time to miss her at Flatiron Five.

banner

Reid knows what he wants…
Reid Jackson is convinced that luck has to be made. Keeping his eyes open has been the secret to his success, along with a lot of hard work. He might have come from the wrong side of the tracks, and he might have a reputation of being bad to the bone, but he’s built success after a major setback. When Cassie Wilson comes breezing back into town, Reid is ready to find out if she really is different from everyone else. Cassie is everything he imagined. She turns his expectations inside out—and shakes up his life. When Cassie decides she wants more than a fling, Reid knows he’s not the man she wants him to be—can Cassie change his mind and convince him to hope for more?

My review: 5 stars

Loved this new story, it has the usual smooth flow and the organic unfolding of the story I love in Ms. Cooke’s books. 

I really enjoyed learning more about Cassie and her past, she has quite a story. To carry that secret for so long… WOW
Reid is such a lovable guy and he came so far despite his childhood. Loved the chemistry between them, hot and sweet and real without the angst and drama so prevalent these days.

It is true in real life too, we only get to know somebody as far as they allow us to see or sometimes as far as we are willing despite having all the clues in front of us.

I can’t recommend this series enough.

Book 1, ‘Simply Irresistible‘ is on sale for a limited time.

My Chat with Aura

Hello and welcome!

Since the book is coming out in audio format, I was thinking it would be perfect to ask one of my fave book girlfriends, Aura, to come for a chat. But how will I do that? How can I contact her? She is back in time, somewhere in the 10th century, reunited with her love, Thorn. Remember him? He was my guest here a few years back. If you missed it, check it out here.

Turns out that if wished hard enough, they do come true 😀

Read on to see what happened earlier today…

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

As I walk towards my office, I can see someone knocking at my door.  She is covered in a deep, dark red, full-length cape with fur trim that is totally out of sync with our time.  It is also something I think is absolutely gorgeous.

Excuse me, I call out, as I approach the lady, can I help you?

The lady turns, looks at me enquiringly for a moment, and then smiles.  I don’t know who she is, but I smile back, mainly because the expression on her face is so filled with happiness.  I am a little surprised when she seems to know of me, calling my name.

Eniko, I am Aura, and I would like to thank you for the time you spent interviewing my husband, Thorn.  He was quite impressed with you at the time.  He says you are a real lady.  Aura spoke.

Oh Do I remember Thorn!!! 😉

I am honoured he would think so.  Please come into the studio where it is warm, I will make some tea, or would you rather have coffee?  It is cold outside.

Tea would be fine. Aura smiles wider.

I unlock the door and we enter.  The first thing I do is take her cape to hang it up… I know, but it is red, and I have to at least have an excuse to touch it.  I also find it heavy, and find that it is lined with fur, no wonder the cold wasn’t bothering her.

Aura watches me and laughs, as she admits, I did the same thing when Thorn gave it to me, it is so soft and warm.  He says he has to take care of me so I won’t try to disappear on him again, as if I would.

I want that dress! I blurt out, even as I slap my hand over my mouth to stop myself from saying the words.  Too late.

Aura is wearing a dress to match the colour of the cape.  The collar is slightly scooped from shoulder to shoulder, the sleeves are belled, there is a braided belt in black leather that winds loosely around her waist to tie in front and fall to the hem of her belled skirt.  The edges of the gown are embroidered in black thread, and it looks heavenly on her.

You have come a long way. I comment.

I can’t stay long, Thorn will miss me if I do, and he definitely won’t take kindly to my coming back to this time, but I had to at least meet you and let you know that you are thought of fondly in our home.  Aura spoke.  You would be surprised how many people take Thorn for granted amongst those that live in our time.  He is so well known for his fairness and leadership ability that he is in constant demand.  When he is gone, my world is empty, so I understand why he hates it when he arrives to find me missing, even if I am on the grounds collecting herbs for the kitchen, or teaching the children.

You are happy then? I ask, as I place a cup of tea before her.

I have never known happiness like I have with Thorn.  I would never have believed it existed before him.  He is everything I could ever want or need.  Aura admits.

What is it like to live in the time you do, after having known the luxuries of the modern world?  I wonder out loud.

You get used to it.  Sure, there are things I would like to have, but I have learned to do without. Aura states.  There are also things that I don’t miss at all, and before you think of luxuries, those I don’t miss at all.  It is a simple life, but it is ours and as long as Thorn is there for me, that is what is important to me.

There is silence for a while, and I feel the yearning building in my heart.  She looks so happy, so pleased with her lot in life.  She is also gorgeous, more than I imagined she would be, despite the callouses on her hands.  It gives me the feeling that despite the hard work, she feels she has the best of both worlds. 

As a thought runs through my mind, I grin and ask, You don’t think you could find a way to take me back with you, please?  You sound so content, so happy with your lot in life.  I think I might like to experience this too.

Aura smiles and shakes her head, even as she answers, It is not possible, nor is the life I am living for everyone.  The only thing that binds me to that time is my family, and the love of the man that prayed for it to happen to make his wish come true.  I have to admit, there are still times I have trouble with that, but I have learned to accept it.

As Aura stands to leave, I have to know one question about that gorgeous hunk of hers, Is Thorn ticklish?

Aura smiles and winks, then after donning her cape, she walks out the door.

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

I wish I could have gone with her. Would you?

As I mentioned earlier, the audiobook format of Aura by M. A. Abraham was released today and I hope you will give it a chance. It is my fave standalone from Ms. Abraham’s books. Narrated by Paul Woodson, one of my fave voices I listen to with delight every chance I get, I am sure it will provide many hours of listening enjoyment. If you missed my chat with Mr. Woodson, you can check it out here.

Aura_AudioBook_cover

Aura is her mother’s love child, a living memory of the biggest mistake she ever made, and she never lets Aura forget it. Shunned by her mother, dismissed by her stepsisters, Aura drifts through life. She has little to sustain her miserable existence but her dreams. Until fate takes a hand and tosses her far into the past, a past she must learn to survive in. Alone with nothing but a couple of pets Aura learns what it is like to be on her own. She learns how to make a life for herself in a time where she does not belong. Or maybe she does.

Thorn is the right hand man of the Duke Vernon. He is a warlord, a great warrior and leader. He also has a belief that somewhere in the world his soul mate waits for him. Each day he prays for the guidance that will bring her to his attention, but when it does, will he know her? Will he accept that she is the one who is meant for him?

Aura finds a knight beaten and left for dead and she nurses him back to health. It is the first time Thorn meets her, but not the last. A year later they meet again, by then she is a favorite of the Duke Vernon because of her knowledge. Vernon wants to keep her close because of what she knows. Thorn wants to keep her closer but for other reasons. Here is the woman he has searched for, his soul mate. Can he hold on to her, or does fate have other plans?

My review of the book from 2013

5 stars loves transcends time and place

I really enjoyed M.A. Abraham’s story, Aura. It is very powerful and deep tale of a young woman, Aura, who is very unhappy due to the lack of love she craves from her mother which is never freely given. This has repercussions in her dealings with facing her soul mate. She finds him in the distant past where she is transported back in time from the cave she takes refuge from the hurt heaped on her yet again by her Mother. She adapts and grows as she did all her life, she is strong, witty, but afraid to believe that love does exist.
Thorn is a highly respected warlord, a very strong and proud warrior, also very warm and caring. He has dreamed about his soul mate for some time and those dreams come true when he meets Aura. Despite the rough beginning, their relationship blossoms into love. Makes us believe that you have to really believe in something, never let go of the hope you hold strong, and only then it will become reality.
I strongly recommend this book, it is a journey of two people who complement each other and together they are whole. A story showing that loves transcends time and place.
