My Chat with Persephone – “Sinners and Saints” Anthology – 11

Hello and welcome!

I am chatting with a Goddess today and what a treat! Read on…

What is your full name?
Persephone, Goddess of Spring and Queen of the Underworld

Do you have a nickname?
Seph, but only my nearest and dearest dare use it

What is one word best describes you?
Only one? LOL. I’d have to say driven.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I’m dressed for war today. I have my black pencil skirt, crimson silk blouse, black blazer and my favorite red soled, black patent leather pumps on. Of course, my hair is in a French twist and my makeup is flawless. Always be prepared for battle, I say. Hades and I are going to see the Oracle of Delphi today.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Olympus, no, Hannah Earl is a jealous bitch. She is all about that baby goddess, Amyara, and making herself look good to Zeus. She barely tells my side in the whole thing. She has no idea why Amyara must be stopped. At least, she got my sexual prowess correct.
Oh Oh! I would not say that out loud. You know what they say, right? Authors put people who they don’t like in their stories and they get killed, just saying…

What makes you laugh out loud?
Those who think they can outwit me

What is your favourite dessert?
Death by chocolate with pomegranate sauce

quickly checking on the web OH YUM that looks decadent

What is your favourite drink?
Pomegranate martini. Every time I share one with Hades, I’m reminded of those tiny seeds I ate while captive in his realm which sealed my fate as his Queen.

What is your greatest fear?
Darling, I fear nothing. Did you miss the Queen of the Underworld part? I’m also quite a powerful goddess in my own right as well.

What is your favourite colour?
Red, crimson, the darker the better.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing at all. Pajamas are for children and lingerie is a human thing.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Hades once took me on a moonlit picnic to the top of an erupting volcano. That was special.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Queens are not ticklish.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Spring lilacs, they remind me of life on Mt. Olympus.

When you look at a man what catches your interest?
Confidence and a powerful stature. I could never be with a man below my station.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
My beloved King Hades, of course. He is the son of the Titans, a god on equal to Zeus and Lord of the Underworld. He has a whole realm named for him. Not even Zeus can say that.

What is one word best describes him?
He’s the King, darling. He is my past, my present and my forever. What else would you ask for in a man?

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
My story is my own, entitled Freeing Persephone. It will appear in the Sinners and Saints Anthology. Hannah Earl has a series called Amyara, Daughter of Eros. It follows the baby goddess Amyara on her journey from human teenager to goddess. I make a few little cameos along the way. There are three novels and a short novella available on Amazon now and an all new novel coming later this year. I may make an appearance in the next book as well. 😉

Thank you Persephone for chatting with me, it was a pleasure. Looking forward to reading your story.

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

So what did you think?

As she mentioned, her story is Freeing Persephone by Hannah Earl, a new author for me.

Persephone, Queen of the Underworld, isn’t threatened by much but when a new Greek goddess hits Mt. Olympus she sees her own demise in the near future. The baby goddess must be stopped at any cost and Persephone is willing to do anything to prevent that from coming to pass, even if she has to defy Hades and Zeus to do it.When her plans get discovered by Zeus, she gets imprisoned by Zeus in Poseidon’s under water prison. She will do anything to get released and resume her campaign against the new goddess.

Author Bio

I currently live in the Daytona Beach area of Florida. (No, it is really not the party spot you think it is.) I have been an avid reader since childhood and even though I have always told my tales of fiction to friends, I never thought to start writing them down until recently. I have always needed a creative outlet in my life and have trained as a singer and actor. Now I really love writing.

When I’m not writing I love movies, theater, and baking. I hope you all enjoy my stories and would appreciate all reviews.

My Chat with Victoria – “Sinners and Saints” Anthology – 10

Hello and welcome!

Another of the heroines from the anthology is joining me today. Check out the chat we had!

Welcome! Welcome!

What is your full name?
Victoria Holden

Do you have a nickname?
Tori

What is one word best describes you?
Smoker

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
One of my own designs, a white sleeveless dress with an asymmetrical neckline and hemline, high low, one of my signature designs.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I’ve been in two books before Fiery Billionaire, I hope so 😊

What makes you laugh out loud?
My brother, Carter Holden’s tattoos. Long story, you’ll have to read HIS book, Stay With Me.

What is your favourite dessert?
American cheesecake. Not as creamy as New York cheesecake, but not as dry as Italian.

What is your favourite drink?
Coffee. And champagne. Not at the same time.

What is your greatest fear?
That my smoking will cause a fire.

What is your favourite colour?
Red.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
A satin night shirt.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Anything so long as it’s not a fundraiser! The cheaper the better. Movie night on the couch always gets me.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Very. Behind the ears.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I’m trying to quit smoking, so I won’t harp on ‘cigarette related’ favorites. The smell of the ocean outside my parents’ house in Orion Ridge, Rhode Island. It reminds me of home.

When you look at a man what catches your interest?
His eyes.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Why yes, I do! Theo Markham, a NYC fireman. And he’s hot hot hot. Yes, pun. But also the sweetest sexiest man, I’ve ever laid eyes on.

What is one word best describes him?
Brave. And not because he’s a fireman. He’s dating me. I’m a billionaire and a smoker.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Always the bridesmaid and never the bride was my motto. But no more! I first appeared in my brother’s book, Stay With Me, the last book in the Mallory Family series. Next, I showed up in Bossy Billionaire as Luke Hart’s fake date, set up by his (now) wife. I guess it worked. I must have made an impression because out of four male billionaires in the Lords of Gotham series, I’m the only female billionaire.

So in my book, there’s a man named Shane Quinlan, he’s Irish with a brogue that will melt hearts and panties. His sister, Sabine snatched up the last Hart brother in Rebel Billionaire, right before my book. Shane has three older brothers. PI’s in the Irish Mafia world. I think they may be next, starting with Shane.

And I’m so glad I’m with Theo because I want to watch this guy Shane fall hard for a woman.

Thank you for chatting with me, Victoria! I am looking forward to your story, also discover all the yummies in your world. Maybe I’ll snag a BBF or two in that world too 😉

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

I hope the chat spiked your curiosity, it sure did mine.

Her story, as she mentioned, is Fiery Billionaire, part of the Lords of Gotham series by Deborah Garland, a new author for me. Visiting her website and checking out the books, I will definitely need to get into her worlds.

It started with a slip of the tongue and an innocent lie.

When New York City Firefighter Theo Markham Jr. rescues a bunch of school kids from a fire, he’s plunged into the spotlight. Now, the handsome-as-hell rookie fireman is receiving invitations to dozens of black-tie parties, and hordes of single women are vying to be his date. There’s only so much attention a man can take before giving in. One slip of the tongue with the press has everyone thinking he has a girlfriend. The NYFD brass likes the image of a rookie hero who has a steady girl. They want him to represent NYC’s Bravest at some very public functions, so Theo has to find a girlfriend. Fast.

Billionaire fashion designer Victoria Holden is on her way to runway stardom. She’s determined to prove she’s not just an heiress living off her family’s money, but that she has the talent and drive to make her clothing business an international success. When her first big runway show ends in disaster, she needs some good press. Pretending to date hero firefighter Theo Markham is just the thing to salvage her damaged reputation. She has no intention of getting tied to a party-boy fireman long term.

Can a low-paid firefighter win the heart of a billionaire heiress who can have anyone she wants? She’s fiery and drives him crazy, but she has a spark that he can’t ignore. He’s down to earth and looks down on her money, but not her. There’s no way they can fall for each other, right? After all, whoever heard of a billionaire falling for a fireman, especially in a city where lies can burn a relationship faster than any fire.

Author Bio

Deborah Garland is an Award-Winning author of emotional and funny, steamy romances!

She lives on the beautiful North Shore of Long Island with her very patient husband and their mischievous pug. She had to learn how to make her own Cosmopolitans and right now there’s a bartender who will NEVER see her again. She eats cheap mac and cheese with expensive red wine, her heroes are ALWAYS over six feet tall, and they fall, hard, HARD for the girl.

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

Well, what do you think? Did you enjoy the chat?

Her story is Love Out of Bounds by Tricia Daniels, one of my fave authors.

Nate Ross was everything my over protective Irish brother warned me about. He was older, impulsive and a player.

He was always on the road with the band and would eventually leave me broken-hearted. In my brothers own words, Nate wasn’t good enough for me. Now I have to lie to my family about falling in love with him.

Author Bio

Tricia Daniels lives in a small town in Southern Ontario, Canada, where she raised three kids as a single parent. Creativity and imagination is something there is never a short supply of in her home. Between her quick wit and wicked sense of humor she found that she has a passion for writing steamy romance novels. Her goal is simple, tell her story, warm a few hearts, shed a few tears, share a silent chuckle, and occasionally, make people blush.

Love inspires me to write. I love when the characters take over the story and plot twists develop that I hadn’t planned. l love when you read and you get all warm and squishy at the good parts. I love the journey to the HEA even though sometimes that road has a lot of bends in it. I love how two imperfect characters can love each other perfectly. My reward, my inspiration is experiencing through them, a love so deep that I feel it in my own heart.

My Chat with Chase and Kayla – “Sinners and Saints” Anthology – 6

Another double treat for you from the Sinners and Saints Anthology.

Welcome! Welcome!

What is your full name?
Chase Nelson
Kayla Quincy
Oh I love that name… KAYLA

Do you have a nickname?
Chase blushes and looks down at his hands a small smile on his lips Kayla calls me Fluffy stupid i know but I like it. It’s how I knew she accepted all of me.
I don’t have… I take that back… firecracker! Chase calls me that when I get all fired up over something.

What is one word best describes you?
Just one word? I would have to say Primal. I feel the call of the wild all the time since I became an anchor.
I would say determined. I never back down. When I decide to go for something, I go all the way and put everything into it.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I like comfortable. I’m in my favorite faded jeans a black and blue plaid flannel button up long sleeve shirt and hiking boots.
I am wearing a black free flowing skirt that comes down to my ankles it has a bright blue butterfly on the left side on the bottom, a white silk button up shirt and Black sandals.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
She did an ok job. I think I would have been a little smoother around Kayla. Kayla seems to think Megan got me just right.
I think Meg did alright. I think she should have given me a bigger salary.

What makes you laugh out loud?
I have to work really hard at not laughing when Kayla tries to help around the cabin. She is a city girl through and through. So, country living, and chores are a bit awkward for her sometimes.
I love watching Chase and Teddy when they are in wolf form. They act like pups. It is the cutest thing.

What is your favourite dessert?
Key lime pie is my weakness. Sweet and tart and so easy to make.
Oh god… best desert? Chase is such a good cook. I guess I would have to say egg custard pie. I know it sounds weird since I am from the city but the first time, I ate it… it just melts in your mouth.

What is your favourite drink?
Coffee! I need my coffee otherwise my inner wolf looks like a sweet puppy compared to my human side without coffee.
Sangria. It’s light and fruity.

source

I love Sangria too, especially the fruit LOL I just found this recipe for Blood Orange Sangria YUM

What is your greatest fear?
I worry all the time that I will give in to my primal instincts. It’s alien to me this power became a part of me when Sam grounded me to the earth, and I became immortal. I have no idea what I will become if I give in to the power inside.
I am terrified of being trapped or buried alive. Just the thought of it sends my blood pressure soaring.

What is your favourite colour?
My favorite color is blue. The sky, the lake, the color of Kayla’s eyes… Yeah blue is definitely my favorite color.
I love white. The snow in winter and the color of Chase’s fur. Its just so pure and calming.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing usually but if we have guests over, I will sleep in a pair of grey sweats.
I usually wear an oversized shirt or a set of Pajamas if it’s cold.

What is the perfect romantic date?
I haven’t been on a real date in seventy years. I have been stuck in the forest. So, I’m a bit rusty. I guess a homecooked meal, a long hike to see all the scenic spots and dancing under the stars.
I think a perfect date would be going out and having a nice candlelight dinner, going out dancing, then maybe a walk in the park after dark talking hand in hand.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I am not ticklish. Why? What did Kayla tell you?
I didn’t say anything she laughs Yes, I am ticklish everywhere.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Cinnamon. It’s spicy and smells like home.
I think my favorite smell is the bathroom right after Chase finishes a hot shower. His soap and cologne are heavy in the air. It reminds me of the woods at the cabin after a heavy rain and the night life of the big city. It’s really hard to explain.

I look at Kayla and ask – When you look at a man what catches your interest?
His shoulders I love broad shoulders, then his eyes you can really tell a lot about what a man is like by looking in his eyes.

I look at Chase and ask When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
What do I notice first…? Her scent would be the first thing I would notice then her eyes you can tell a lot about a person by looking into their eyes. A woman’s voice she has to have a sexy voice. Then I would look the rest of her over.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Yeah, Kayla she is amazing beautiful and smart. She’s a short firecracker. Not to mention the most determined reporter I have ever met.
I do now, Chase is the first guy I have had a real relationship with. I’ve dated and had fun but my career has always come first. With Chase I don’t have to choose he supports my being a reporter and wants to see me succeed.

What is one word best describes him? I ask Kayla
The one word that come to mind is natural. He just seems to fit no matter where or who he is with it all seems to come so natural to him.

What is one word best describes her? I ask Chase
Bulldozer. When she gets ahold of a story or she thinks one of her friends are in trouble she will push through anything to get to what she wants or needs to get things done.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yes, our story is the first in The Hunter’s Series. Kayla answers. then Chase continues Hunters are trying to destroy the paranormal world of shifters, witches, and other mystical creatures. We have to take down the organization and save everyone we can.

It was a pleasure meeting you both and I am looking forward to reading your story.

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

Well? What do you think? Did the chat pique your curiosity? Sure did mine.

Their story is A Solstice to Remember by Megan Kuykendall, a new to me author.

Chase is a wolf-shifter and the leader of an elite team of witches and shifters that protect the supernatural people from the Hunters. When they finally catch up to a siren that is killing young witches, he sacrifices his freedom to trap her in a cavern in the Smokey Mountains Reserve. He has spent the last 75 years not being able to go more than 10 miles from the cavern.

Kayla works for a small paper. She has a shot at becoming the new travel writer if she can nail this latest story. She is headed to the Smokey’s to learn about a sleepy little town that has great fishing and hiking and oh yeah, a wolf that saves people but only on the Winter Solstice. Not that she really believes it. She will stop at nothing to get her story.

The Solstice is only a couple days away when Kayla mistakes Chases home for her cabin. She ends up getting tangled up in the fight to find a way to finally destroy the siren and free Chase from his prison. Will she stay when she finds out that supernatural creatures exist, and she is falling for the Solstice Wolf? Or will this beauty run from her beast?

Author Bio

I am an avid reader. I love to garden and take hikes in the mountains. I love to write you never see me with out a notebook close by. I enjoy meeting new people. I people watch all the time. Simply put I am just a happy southern girl having fun and doing what I enjoy.

My Chat with Frederick and Amelia – “Sinners and Saints” Anthology – 5

Hello and welcome!

Today I have a double treat for you. Read on and meet them.

Welcome! Welcome!

What is your full name?
Frederick… and whatever last name is acceptable for the time period.
Amelia… and whatever last name my husband has at the time.

Do you have a nickname?
Fred.
People try to give me a nickname, but I don’t really like them. I like it when Fred calls me “Miss” though.

What is one word best describes you?
Valiant.
Persistent. Although Fred would say I really mean stubborn.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Dark jeans, tight black shirt with a v-neck sweater overtop, and a newsboy cap.
Stretchy comfy jeans, a tank top and a loose-neck sweater overtop.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Perhaps, however I think she could have described my svelte body and dashing good looks more.
Sure. It’s a bit embarrassing to remember how timid I was in my youth before Fred and I were together, but she got my personality just right.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Listening to young women talk on the phone when they think I can’t hear them. They share the most awkward conversations while riding the bus because they forget that I exist.
When Fred tries to fit in with young people in the world and he uses the phrases wrong.

What is your favourite dessert?
Warm rhubarb pie. They make it with strawberries nowadays but my Mom used to make it with just rhubarb when I was young. It’s one of the last things that brings back her memory.
I love rhubarb & strawberry pie, my fave pie actually.
Definitely Indian Pudding! Warmed up with a dollop of ice cream on top. Yum! Best comfort food ever.
I will have to look that up, never heard of it.

What is your favourite drink?
I wasn’t a big drinker in my younger days, but I’ve come to appreciate a good old “Old Fashioned” when I take time to go to the bar. Otherwise sweet tea works just fine.
I made a few of those in my days working as a bartender.
I don’t really drink. I like sweet tea, mostly. If I feel like having a drink, we go to the bar and I ask them to make me a chocolate martini or something sweet and fancy. I don’t usually finish the whole thing before Fred is carrying me to the car.

What is your greatest fear?
Losing Amelia.
Losing Fred.

What is your favourite colour?
Blue.
Emerald Green.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing if possible. But sometimes pajama pants.
I have a long cotton tshirt that is my favorite. It’s long enough that I don’t feel obligated to wear panties while walking around the house before bedtime. I just don’t feel comfortable sleeping naked.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Going to a putt-putt course and ending with ice cream and then cuddling at home.
Anything that is a surprise.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Nowhere.
Don’t let him lie to you. He’s ticklish on the arches of his feet. I’m ticklish just about everywhere.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Amelia. She always smells like fresh laundry and pencil shavings.
The salty smell of the sea. Or caramel. 

When you look at a man what catches your interest? I ask Amelia.
Everything about Fred. But mostly his eyes. Men these days don’t really have that sparkle in their eyes anymore like they used to… not like Fred.

I turn to Frederick and ask When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
I’m a people watcher. Every woman catches my interest. There’s only one that has ever caught my heart.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Yes, Amelia.
Yes, Fred.

I look at Amelia and ask What is one word that best describes him?
Stubborn. And of course brave.

Then I turn to Frederick What is one word that best describes her?
Stubborn, but smart as a whip and more beautiful than any jewel.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
It seems like every year with Amelia is a new chapter in our lives, every era is a new series.
The future is one thing I can never predict, but I can say we have lived many many series in our history together. I guess we will just have to wait to see if the author decides to keep writing the next part.

Thank you both for spending time with me, looking forward to reading your story.

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

Hope you joined the chat and will read their story too.

Their story is Beware the Blue Moon by S. E. Winters, a new author for me.

It is said to beware a full moon, for it can make people crazy. But what about love? Especially a love that comes only once in a blue moon?

Listen to a tale, told by a simple man driving a bus, to a studious woman heading home at the end of a long day, of a love so epic that the tale has been handed down for generations along the shore. It begins like all others with a man who fell in love with a girl who lived with a protective father, and the need to prove his worth.

Unfortunately, this tale ends in screams and blood, but the simple man’s story continues long after the bus ride ends. Will you be brave enough to hear the rest?

Author Bio

S.E. Winters (a.k.a. “Snow”) is an author, mother, wife, and curious individual. No topic is left unexplored in her mind, and what happens as a result is anyone’s guess. Branching off from her romance writing duties (as Raven Genevieve), S.E. Winters decided to dip her toes in the waters of the mysterious, paranormal, possibly macabre, and even horrible. I mean, what good is having nightmares if you can’t do anything with them after you wake up?

Raven Genevieve is inspired by life and the women she sees for her romance novels. Feeling that the world needed to change its approach to love, she started writing to get thoughts out of her head, and what happened was a story inspired by herself and every woman that she had ever met. Now she continues to write stories that include all the things that women experience in real life, including sex and love.

Their story is Awakening of Amelia by Madison Grange and will be part of the Saints & Sinners Anthology releasing January 12, 2021.

Determined to make changes in her life, Amelia Morgan never expected to find herself as a hospice nurse in a secluded cliffside estate overlooking the ocean. Spending her days listening to tales of her patient as a young woman, Amelia is swept up in the story of Audrey’s first love.

Pulled to a place he left years ago, Demetrius Matteo confronts his past only to find himself drawn to the young nurse caring for his old love. She reminds him of Audrey in her youth, but she is so much more. Conflicting feelings keep him in the shadows, where it is safer for everyone involved.

Can Demetrius give Amelia the one thing he couldn’t bring himself to give Audrey? Does Amelia love him enough to accept his darkest secret? When Amelia’s life is threatened, perspectives are changed forever.

My review: 5 stars
It starts as the usual contemporary story and then the reader is slowly drawn into the paranormal world. I loved the premise and the ease how the author introduced the different characters. Audrey is a hoot! You know the type of spunky grandma full of stories? That is her. Then there is Demetrius LE SIGH loved how gentle he was with Amelia and let her come to terms with entering his world. HEA at its best. Ms. Granger is a new author for me and now that I got a taste of her writing, I will have to check out her other books.

Author Bio

Madison Granger is a free-spirited late bloomer. She stubbornly lives by three beliefs: dreams can come true, never give up, and you’re never too old to try new things. She is living proof of all three adages, vowing she isn’t done by a long shot.

As a girl, she entertained her friends with stories of knights in shining armor coming to rescue the fair princess with a happy ever after. Or maybe it was their favorite rock stars falling madly in love with their giggling pre-teen selves. Either way, the stories kept them coming back for more. Today, Madison has changed brave knights and rock stars to shapeshifters and werewolves, but the happy ever after remains.

Her love of books never wavered through her life. Not ever finding the one book that told it just right, Madison decided to write it herself. The Kindred series is her “heart story,” and she’s only half done.

In between the ongoing saga of the Kindred, Madison manages to calm her muse by writing other stories. She’s now adding Urban Fantasy to her repertoire of Paranormal Romance.

Madison lives in southern Louisiana and enjoys reading, cheering on the New Orleans Saints, and spending time with friends and family.

Check out Ms. Granger’s latest release, Deuces Wild , book 5 in The Kindred Series. Click on the cover below to get the links.

“The time is close, but not yet at hand. When the last of the noble guardians claims his mate, a reign of peace and prosperity will begin.”

Logan and Lucas Ferguson have met their Promised Souls. The wise woman’s prophecy is now complete. It should be smooth sailing from now on, right? Unfortunately, the twins haven’t claimed their mates yet. And it’s harder to accomplish when both parties aren’t accounted for.

Lucas is M.I.A. No one has seen him, and he didn’t leave a very detailed note. Not even Rhona’s visions can lock on him. Time is passing and the Kindred have nothing to go on to find him. It doesn’t bode well for the Elite Guardian.

To complicate matters, forest fires are sweeping through the Smoky Mountains, threatening to destroy the homes of all who live there. As the Kindred battle to save their homes, they discover they must also venture into a different realm in order to rescue one of their own.

Sounds like a good story, doesn’t it? Love the cover!

My Chat with Carla – “Sinners and Saints” Anthology – 2

Hello and welcome!

Here is the second instalment in the “Saints and Sinners” Anthology Chat series. We are meeting my next guest at the same time, so I am looking forward to it. Let’s see what she has to say.

Please welcome Carla!

What is your full name?
Carla Powers

Do you have a nickname?
Nope, just Carla

What is one word that best describes you?
Fun-loving

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I have a thing for sun dresses. Today my dress is red with a dipping neckline, and it’s lined with lace along the bottom.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Absolutely, she’s amazing! Well, aside from the fact that she only gave me a B-cup bra size. I mean, come on, shouldn’t every middle aged woman with a rocking body be blessed with at least a size C?
They are over-rated 😉

What makes you laugh out loud?
Pretty much anything whimsically sarcastic.

What is your favourite dessert?
Cheeeeeeeesseee Cake!  Hands down cheesecake, of every flavor, as often as I can stuff my mouth with it!

What is your favourite drink?
There’s this guy that’s way too young for me, yet he won’t leave me alone, and I can’t seem to get him out of my mind. When we first locked eyes, I was wearing a pineapple dress. He remembered that, and left a surprise drink recipe for an amazing pineapple rum punch on my doorstep shortly after. I won’t admit it to him, but I’m obsessed with it. I’ve drank it practically every day!  Readers can find it in the ‘Sinners and Saints Recipe Book’, if they’re interested.
she hands me a card I brought the recipe for you 😉

Awesome, thanks! Oh this sounds good. If I have to drink rum, Black Seal Bermuda Rum is the only one I like, I am sure I can substitute with that.

What is your greatest fear?
Dying alone.

What is your favourite colour?
Is it weird that I don’t have one?

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
A part of me is starting to wonder your intentions… but since you asked, I sleep naked. Always have, and likely always will.
😀 No nefarious intentions, just curious

What is the perfect romantic date?
Something simple. I care more about who the date is with, and how they handle me afterwards, than I do about the date itself.
I agree!

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I’m not, no where, not even a little. Sounds weird, I know, but try as you may I won’t even crack a smile.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I like anything with a fresh, earthy scent. Rain and pine trees take the cake, but I also love other real natural smells like the ocean breeze, things like that. I like outside air, that when inhaled deeply makes me feel grounded.

When you look at a man what catches your interest? 
That one’s easy. The width of his shoulders and length of his back. You remember that young guy I was telling you about? Before I ever saw his face, he caught me spying on him during his working out. I was practically drooling all over myself while I watched a single drip of sweat work it’s way down the toned muscles that frame his spine. Even just explaining the moment is causing my thighs to heat and butterflies to swarm my belly.
Oh I know what you mean 😉

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Just that ^^ guy. I’m still fighting him off though. His name is Blake and although I’ve practically caved into my body’s need of him, I wouldn’t consider myself his… just yet.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Nope, my story is a stand alone, and perfectly so. I’d like to keep my future with Blake all to myself. We’re both selfish lovers, so naturally what we do from here on out will be kept between us.

Never say never… the readers might like your story and will demand more LOL

Thank you Carla for giving us the inside scoop. Looking forward to reading your story.

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

Well… I hope you enjoyed and this chat got you as curious as it did me. She sounds like a great gal, right? I would like to hang around with her.

Her book is Skinny Dippin’ written by Didi Oviatt, a new author for me.

When Carla agrees to house sit a condo by the beach for a summer, she’s met with a juicy surprise. Though reluctant, and determined to stay away, Carla is drawn to a young man a few doors down. Blake is handsome, temperamental, and just as determined to win her over as she is to stay away. Will Carla succumb to his possessive, domineering traits and become his for the summer? Or will she let better judgement along with their age difference drive a wedge between the undeniable connection? Three months under the summer sun is about to heat up the parts of Carla that she once believed to be lost, tossed to the wind and gone forever. After an accidentally naked night in the water, everything changes, and Carla is forced to face his persistence head on.

Here is a yummy quote from the book:

Carla,
I’ve decided to stop visiting you. I need more. Meet me after dark on the shoreline so I can pick up where I left off. So I can do all the things I haven’t stopped thinking about since I saw you naked. I’ll wait every night, for as long as it takes. 
– Yours, Blake

My Chat with Ilénè … and Kestriel?

Hello and welcome!

I had plans, but as usual the Elves had other ideas… see what happened earlier today 😀

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

I look up from my editing as a knock sounds from my door. Before I have time to respond, the most beautiful woman I have ever seen saunters through the doorway. Wait a moment… I locked that door. This tells me it is another of MA’s characters, which should be interesting at the very least. She is an Elf, I can tell by the pointed ears and the number of weapons she carries like so much jewelry on her. She has dark hair that falls in waves down her back and past her waist, her complexion is luminous, her lips are full and red, her body is firm and toned with curves all in the right places. And she is dressed in some sort of uniform, or at least part of one. This tells me she is definitely a Dark Elven Elite Warrior.

My mystery guest looks at me with a sultry expression and, in a voice that I would kill for, asks. Enikő?

I let the husky, full-throated sound flow through me with appreciation before I answer. I am Enikő. I can tell this woman is used to being in command by the way she quickly takes over.

I am Ilénè, my guest announces in a matter of fact tone, then adds. I have a gift for you. A few friends and I went shopping. We also had something special made up for you. I think you are going to like what is in the box.

Ilénè walks into the room with a rolling gait that I know would make most men’s eyes immediately focus on her hips, and I quickly begin to clear the top of my desk. I get the feeling that anything liquid or breakable better get moved out of the way fast. I am right. I barely manage to get this done when Ilénè places a big box on the top of the desk and over any other paperwork I hadn’t been given time to gather. I hope nothing gets mixed up amongst the papers, especially the manuscript I was working on. The pages of the book under the box aren’t numbered and if they get mixed up it could be a nightmare to figure out.

The moment Ilénè drops the box on my desk she looks at me expectantly. I look at the large garment box, then at the excited gleam in Ilénè’s eyes and ask. If I untie the ribbon, will something pop out at me? I know from reading about Ilénè that she has a fun loving personality. She also hangs around with questionable characters, mainly the Eagle Claw twins. This means anything can happen.

Ilénè chuckles, and promises, This is not a practical joke.

I notice that the bow on top is as much for decoration as anything else. The cover of the box just slips off of the bottom. I place the top of the carton to the side and see what looks like half of a ton of white tissue paper inside of the bottom half. Alright, so I exaggerate a bit, but not by much. It doesn’t take me long to notice that there is a smaller box in the middle. I open it to find a pair of red stilettos. They are gorgeous, but I will kill myself if I ever try to wear them. How do girls walk in them? Give me Birkestocks or barefoot is even better. I look further into the box and then pull out a red costume. I figure it must be a costume, either that or someone forgot to pack part of the outfit into the box.

Ilénè laughs joyously as I look for more pieces to add to the clothing, then speaks. There is no more. We heard you were planning to take a trip to our lands and wanted to make you feel welcome. To do this, we have made you an honorary Dark Elven Elite Guardian. Welcome to the group.

I stammer. I don’t know what to say. Thank you doesn’t seem quite enough to cover it.

A moment later another knock sounds and Ilénè calls out. Come in if your nose is clean, stay out if it isn’t.

An Elven male walked through the doorway and I feel my knees weaken. He is blonde with hair that is every bit as long as Ilénè’s. He is wearing a blue coat with gold buttons and braiding. He is also drop-dead gorgeous.

Ilénè smiles, as the man stiffly walks into the room and she bursts out in laughter at his awkward movements. Enikő, meet my Life Mate, Kestriel.

I smile as I greet him. How do you do, Kestriel. I know he is a High Elf, so I figure I need to be a bit more formal in my greeting.

Kestriel nods at me in acknowledgement, then turns his attention to Ilénè. What did you do to my pants? They are so stiff they threaten to crack if I try to bend. I also can’t get them off.

Ilénè’s smile widens, as she replies. I am not sure. Cambria gave me something to help hold the creases in place.

Kestriel looks at me apologetically, then bellows at Ilénè. Do you have any idea how uncomfortable this is?

Feigning innocence, Ilénè responds. I would have starched them for you, but you weren’t happy about my efforts when I starched your last bit of laundry.

Kestriel grouched. Those were my shorts. I may be wearing that rash they gave me for another week.

Ilénè looks so pleased with her handiwork, as she agrees and asks. Would you like me to kiss it better?

Kestriel suddenly stiffens visibly. Then, with a nod, he picked Ilénè, slung her over his shoulder, and headed for the exit. As he moved forward he bade me farewell, but I could tell his mind was on other things.

Ilénè smiled as she waved goodbye, as she hung upside down across Kestriel’s shoulder, then called out. I will tell Cambria you loved your gifts. In the meantime, I believe I am being taken away to receive my just punishment for deeds I plan to work harder to improve upon. Ilénè then winks.

As the door of my office closes, I can hear Kestriel’s hand connect with Ilénè’s leather clad rear. It is followed by Ilénè’s shriek, then a giggle.

I look down at the red leather outfit that I am still holding in my hands and wonder that it is still there. The same uniform looked stunning on Ilénè, but …

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

I hope you enjoyed the ‘chat’, I know I did 😀

Ilénè and Kestriel are from THE WARRIOR, book 4 in the Guardians of the Empire series by M. A. Abraham.

Ilénè is a Dark Elven Elite warrior of repute, one who knows her worth. She has led her father’s elite squad for the last one hundred years, but she is getting tired of the constant drill. She has decided it is time to settle down and have a family. The question is with whom?

Kestriel was raised in the way of the ancient High Elven people, and he serves as one of the Guardians of the Empire. It is an honour and one he appreciates to the fullest. He has no intentions of soiling his hands on an Elven female of questionable repute. Until he meets Ilénè.

The moment Kestriel meets Ilénè, he knows he has met his Life Mate. The trouble with this is that he grew up with the impression that it was the male who should be the aggressor in a budding relationship, not the woman. What is a poor Elven Dragon shifter to do?

My review: 5-stars
I loved Ilénè ever since she appeared in the series. A warrior I admire not only for her skills but the way she treats her close friends. Kestriel was a surprise, a High Elf mated to a Dark Elf? I had to read this story. His patience is what made me love him, she puts him through his paces. They find their HEA, but not without a few bumps. 5-star read as usual, the author puts her signature twists in at the least expected times.

You can read chapter 1 here.

I know you will enjoy it too, I hope you will give the series a chance.

There will be a 3-day event on Facebook to celebrate the release of The Warrior, come and join in! Follow the link. Awesome author and narrator spotlights on August 14 and 15. On August 13, M. A. Abraham will have contests and games from 12pm to 8pm. There is also a Rafflecopter Giveaway ending in 2 days, so make sure you enter.

To celebrate the brand new release. Ms. Abraham is giving away an ebook copy of The Warrior. Sexy Mr. Random will pick the winner from the comments after 8 pm on Thursday, August 13, 2020.

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