My Chat with Lucifer and Westmancott

Hello and welcome!

Oh I have something that will delight you… and probably puzzle you too 😉

Read on to find out why.

I rush through the entrance of my home and notice a pile of mail sitting on the stand. Probably bills and a package is my first thought. Do I want to look at them? Do I just ignore them? I better not. This means I am going to crack the seal on the box first. I look at the return address and squeal. I know who sent me this and it will be chocked full of goodies. Did I ever tell you I love books? Audiobooks? Well, I am.

I check out the rest of the pile. Flyers. More flyers. A few envelopes that I place into a pile off to the side. Then I noticed one that doesn’t fit with what I usually get in the mail. It is a heavy, cream coloured envelope. There is even embossing on it and it is closed with sealing wax that bears the crest of an Angel in the centre. I grin as I think, “Aren’t we fancy.” I can even tell whomever addressed the missive did so with a fountain pen. I am in love already. I look closer at the stamp of the Angel and notice the letter “L” in the middle. It is a pity I am going to have to break this seal to see what is inside.

Written on a heavy cream vellum sheet that I draw our from inside of the envelope is:

You have been granted an interview
with the Angel Lucifer and Wm. Westmancott.
We will arrive on May 17, 2020 ,
at precisely 7 pm.
Thank you for the invitation.

I glance quickly at the clock and groan as I curse the postal services for taking forever to deliver this. I only have an hour to prepare. What is even worse, I have to really think to remember who these people are. When I do, it sends me diving into my closet.

Three quarters of an hour later, I walk into my studio. At precisely the given time, I hear a solid rap on my door. Showtime. I brace myself, open the door, and my jaw drops to the floor. Standing before me are two handsome men in the most amazing suits I have ever seen. One is slightly older, the other looks to be approximately thirty.

Enikö, I presume. I am Lucifer, The younger man speaks with an accent that has a hint of British hidden in its depth. This gentleman is Wm. Westmancott. I believe you were curious about his work.

Remembering my manners in time, I smile then welcome them. Please come in. Can I get you anything before we begin? Coffee? Tea? Water? Something a little stronger?

That would be nice, Wm. Westmancott replies. Do you happen to have some bourbon on hand?

The high-class British accent flows through his lips so smoothly, I can tell is has been cultivated especially for dealing with the finest in the land. It takes me a few moments, but I eventually find a small bottle of bourbon I must have rifled from somewhere in the past. I mean like really, who drinks bourbon?

Water will do for me, The man called Lucifer answers.

As the two men find a seat, I get their drinks and sneak glances at them. You just have to love a man in a suit, especially when they fill them in so nicely.

While I serve their drinks, I ask. So Mr. Westmancott, what made you decide to become a tailor?

I enjoy my work. I believe there is nothing more presentable than a well dressed man. Wm. Westmancott states.

I could not agree more. I understand you made the suits for the gentlemen in ‘Angelika Leanne’. I prod.

It paid well.

Have you ever made a suit for a woman? I couldn’t help but wonder.

A few times, but it is not my specialty. I am not often approached by women to create for them. Wm. Westmancott answers.

Your work is exquisite, I reply with unfettered admiration. Do you mind if I touch? My hand automatically strays towards Lucifer. Damn, but that man is drool worthy.

Lucifer laughs as he comments, I thought that was meant for our tailor and his suit, not mine.

I blush slightly, but refuse to voice my thoughts. His is the better fit. Instead I comment. You were closer. Granted, I had to cross the floor to make it seem that way, but who is paying attention. Right?

I am not as available, Wm. Westmancott states with a grin. He knows Lucifer doesn’t like being touched.

No one asked you for a commentary, Lucifer snarls.

All of this because I was curious about the fabric? I wonder.

My pardon, Enikö, Lucifer replies. I am solitary by nature.

Grouch by character, Wm. Westmancott snorts.

And ready to cancel my orders from you if you keep it up. Lucifer states.

As Lucifer speaks his phone rings and he answers. A moment later, he looks at me, bows and apologizes. We must leave, I have an emergency. A good friend of mine is in trouble and needs help. Another time perhaps. One without the tailor.

Wm. Westmancott gives me a wink and they are gone. I am left standing there wondering what just happened. I didn’t get the chance to ask any of my usual questions. But Lucifer did say here will be another time.

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

I hope you enjoyed the chat. As it happens with MA’s characters, they side-tracked me. Maybe next time… when I get Lucifer to myself 😉

The two hail from the Daughters of the Valley series by M. A. Abraham.

If you have not read them, you should.

The last one releases May 20, 2020 and I cannot wait for you to read it.

Angelika-cover-lr.jpg

Angelika moved to the land beyond the portal when she was only sixteen and has lived with Tyndal for four years. She has been successful, but misses her people as well as her home world. Despite this, she is happy in her work.

With the intention of bringing Angelika back home to the Valley, Ravel and his brother, Rafe, journey to the outside world. She is needed at home, it is time for her to take her place in their society. It is Rafe’s hope that he will catch her interest and return as his wife. It is, however, not to be, as with one kiss, Ravel realizes that she belongs to him. He will fight anyone that gets in his way, even his brother. How can he get her to come back willingly though?

Forced to go to Ravel’s help, Angelika’s family travels to Tyndal’s home and the fun begins. It takes the female members to track her down, and then, much to the dismay of the men, they decide to indulge in their idea of having a good time before they leave for home. The problem with this is that it does not involve the men. How are they to not only find their wives, but get them to go home peacefully after they have been allowed to run wild in this world?

My review: 5 stars

Being Merika’s granddaughter and Teryka Rose’s daughter, Angelika Leanne inherited many of their qualities … and faults too LOL Stubborn is high on that list, but in a good way. She stands for what she believes in and does everything to realize her goals. She finds her HEA too but poor Ravel is put through the wringer, as many men of the Valley were before him. Got to see the characters from previous books make an appearance. Tyndal had a big role in this book, she is one of my fave BGF from the series, I hope she gets her story too.
A great finish to the trilogy, M. A. Abraham took me on an adventure that spans three generations in two worlds and makes me wish I was in the Valley too.

I heard that there will be another trilogy with the “Sons of the Valley” SHHH it is a secret yet 😉

5-Forbidden Realm-cover

For the price of honor, he must walk away from the woman he loves…

Orphaned young, a childhood of loneliness and brutality led Sir Ronan O’Connor to join the Knights Templar and vow never to return to Ireland. But now a mission to transport a cache of Templar armaments for King Robert the Bruce forces the knight back to his homeland. Under his protection on the journey is an Irish nobleman and his daughter, Lathir McConaghy. Trained in combat, Lathir will bend to no man . . .

After the death of her betrothed in battle, Lathir guards her heart fiercely. Until an attack at sea forces her and Ronan to rely on each other for their survival. In the storm-filled days adrift at sea, a passionate bond forms between Lathir and the fierce warrior. In a realm torn by treachery and turmoil, they fight for their future even as secrets threaten to destroy their mission, and any chance at love.

My review: 5 stars

I knew from previous reads that Ms. Cosby is an amazing writer, but I think this is my fave so far. I loved that Lathir is determined, stubborn, independent, and not in an insufferable way either, she is courageous and can take care of herself knowing the use of a blade. As I read the story I fell in love with her more and more. With Ronan was insta love for me, his quiet command, loyalty, powerful without being overwhelming, his soft heart. They are quite a match, but their road to HEA is hard and life threatening. The ending though steals the show, I can’t tell you because it would be a spoiler but… Many wrongs are righted leaving me with a happy heart. WOW I am still grinning even hours after it. It was perfect.

Blue jeans and a white button down shirt.
DAYUM they all look edible. Where is my drool rag?

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I, do, indeed. Tarah and I are close friends. She was very careful to tell my side of our story very carefully.
Tarah is very precise. She stayed true to my fire nature and portrayed by nature as protector quite well.
I suppose so. She, like Ciarah, has a mind of her own.

Red,

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Need you ask?
I guess not 😛

What is the perfect romantic date?
A moonlight picnic beneath the old oak on the property of a castle we five shared with Ciarah. le sigh
Roasting marshmallows over an open fire with Ciarah.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
The strength in her eyes.
Her warm smile.
Intelligent eyes.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Oh yes. The same woman who has been in my life for millennia. We have known her in many incarnations and as many names. We first knew her as Ciarah. Today, she is Leilah Crowe.
Leilah, street witch, High Potential. The woman who has come in and out of our lives for thousands of years. The woman that binds us five together.
Ciarah has returned. But I will not allow her to become the focus of my life as she has been in the past. She betrayed me.

What is one word best describes her?
Indominable.
Magnificent.
Impetuous.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Oh, yes, Reckless Witch is the first book in the Illumina Academy Reverse Harem series. There is a great deal in store for the readers of the Illumina Academy series. Leilah is on a direct course with her destiny. A destiny none of us could have conceived.
I feel something in the wind. The other two men who make up the five who have loved Ciarah for as long as we can remember, gargoyle Matthias James and wolf Caleb Dakota, know she has returned.
I fear there is much more in store for all of us. Where Ciarah goes, trouble follows.

I am so happy to have met you and looking forward to follow your journey. By the sounds of it, it will be dangerous and hope in the end you will be reunited with your Ciarah for good. Come for a chat again soon.

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

Well? What do you think? Will you give them a chance to burrow themselves in your heart like they did in mine? I hope so.

If you missed My Chat with Leilah / AKA Ciarah, check it out. I do love her, she is quite a character and a kick-ass heroine.

Book 1 in a brand new series Illumina Academy, by one of my fave authors, Tarah Scott. I have quite a few book boyfriends among her books, check out the archives. With this new series I am adding The Three for sure, maybe 5 😉

RecklessWitch.jpg

Five men are bound throughout eternity by one woman: Ciarah.

In the post-Shadow War era, street witch Leilah Crowe returns to New York to investigate why her dead grandmother has been convicted of consorting with their ancient enemy, The Shadows. When Raith, one of Margidda’s oldest and most ruthless vampires, tries to draft Leilah into the famed Illumina Academy, Leilah refuses. Raith’s right-hand man Ethan Bordeau, an ancient dragon, is sent to mark Leilah with his sigil, which forces her to comply.

Illumina Recruiter Ethan Bordeau is shocked to learn that the newest Illumina High Potential he is sent to recruit is none other than the woman who keeps appearing in their lives throughout the centuries. The woman none of them can live without.
Until now…

Raith no longer wants Ciarah in his life.

Ethan must protect her at all costs, even against Raith, if necessary.

Fae playboy, Blade Tyrion, will love her no matter what.

Wolf shifter Caleb Brennan and Gargoyle Mattias Silanus have been missing for decades. Without them, the fragile balance that holds them together is lost and they could destroy one another.

Read an excerpt on Amazon, the scene is quite intense. Will Raith save her or will he let her die?

My review: 5 stars – read it in yesterday’s post,

Next book will be “Rogue Witch“, release date is posted as February 15, 2021. gasp eeek

RogueWitch.jpg

She sold her soul and now she wants it back…

Condemned by her peers for her grandmother’s crime of treason, street witch Leilah Crowe’s very identity is brought into question, as well as exactly who holds the pink slip to her soul.

Her world further spirals when wolf Caleb Dakota and gargoyle Matthias James enter her life. Her love-hate attraction to vampire Raith Vanderkoff, dragon Ethan Bordeau and Fae Blade Tyrion were confusing enough. How is it possible to love five men—men who are willing to share her…men who would go to Hell and back for her?

But it may be Leilah who must find a way into Hell to reclaim her own soul and save them, along with the Academy that has branded her a murderer and a traitor.

The Illumina Academy series will have 4 books:

  1. Restless Witch – March 3, 2020
  2. Rogue Witch – February 15, 2021 ( fingers … and toes 😉 crossed it will be sooner)
  3. Outlaw Witch – TBA
  4. Shadowborne Witch – TBA

My Chat with Talus … and … SQUEEEE

Hello and welcome!

You will not believe who dropped by today! SQUEEEEE

Read on and find out…

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

I look at my watch as I leave the office and give a groan. Damn, I am almost two hours late for my interview with Talus. This wasn’t supposed to have happened. Something tells me I am going to have to reschedule, if he will even talk to me after this. There are times I hate these rush projects that get pushed onto to me at work.

Without knowing why I should even bother, I walk through the door into my interview studio and stop short. Well hello, handsome, I think as I see an Elf reclining on my couch. He looks so relaxed, so… scratch the following thought….

Talus.jpg

Talus? I ask, as he rises to meet me.

Lady Eniko! A crooked grin crosses Talus’ face.

I would have thought you would have given up on my returning a long time ago. I comment and I can’t stop my eyes wonder across his wide chest, then I force them up to meet his amused eyes.

I have learned patience during my wait for my Life Mate. Talus explains. Some of us need more of that than others. You are right about one thing though my time here is limited. I can only stay here for a short time. I can and will offer you a treat though.

I am open to possibilities, as many occur to me. Perhaps a wish? Would he consider taking me with him? Can he travel through time as well as space? I am thinking about Loth, for some reason.

Talus laughs, as he shamelessly reads my thoughts and answers, I am so sorry, those are all answers I can’t give you.

I let my eyes drop in disappointment and they linger as they follow the way his leather pants caress his bottom. A girl has got to love these Elven visits. They don’t even mind when people admire their form, not that this is what I am doing…. Yes, I am, so sue me.

So what treat are you offering? I ask curiously.

Talus hands me a set of leathers and, as I take them from his hands, I notice they are lined with fur. I look at him in question, and he grins anew. If you hurry, we can get in a quick dragon flight. Are you interested?

AM I INTERESTED? I doubt if I have ever changed clothing so quickly before in my life, much to his amusement. As far as I was concerned he could laugh all he wanted, I was going riding on the back of a Dragon. People, eat your hearts out.

An hour later we return to the sight of another Dragon waiting beside my place. I look around to see if anyone else can see him as he sits by the building, but no one seems to notice. Again, I can feel Talus laughing at me from his Dragon form.

While in your realm, we are concealed with a spell. Talus informs me then asks, Would you like to meet my friend?

Duh, you think? I wasn’t about to voice that thought. I would love to.

As I dismount, a glow forms around the two Dragons and I am faced with two drop dead gorgeous Elves. One is Talus, but the other… Oh yes! I am in love.

Lady Eniko, I would like to introduce you to my friend. He has only a moment, but promises to return to speak to you at a later time. Talus is close to laughing as I am sure my mouth is open. This is one seriously hot Elf.

Does your friend have a name? I ask.

The reply is quick, as the Elf we are talking about bows and smiles. I stifle a gasp. MINE! Hands off! MINEMINE!!!

Tharris.jpg

T’Harris. The gorgeous Elf introduces himself, takes my hand and presses a light kiss on it. He turns to his friend and speaks in a low husky tone. I was sent to bring you back to the Empire, things are happening that you need to know about. We have all been summoned to meetings by both Lariel and King Gerolth. Then turning to me, Lady Eniko, it has been my pleasure. Please accept my apologies for the short stay. Another time perhaps, when you have time and it isn’t so pressing for us.

All I do is nod. As the two Guardians shift back into their Dragon forms, I add, I will make sure I have the time when you do.

A moment later, they are gone. I stand there stunned until I gain the ability to move, then sit down hard on the couch, fanning my face. I really do hate these rush jobs, if it weren’t for them, I would have had so much more time to spend with DRAGONS!!! I wish they could whisk me away too.

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

Well? What do you think? Wasn’t this awesome? I do love when the Elves highjack the chats. I never know the surprise they spring on me 😀

Talus hails from “The Priestess“, book 3 of the Guardians of the Empire by M. A. Abraham, releasing on February 20, 2020. If you are not familiar with the series, it is a spin off set in the distant future after the Elven Chronicles and One Empire.

3 Britallia-Priestess-cover

Britallia hides secrets from her people, even as she leads them as their Princess Priestess. She is an Elf. She keeps her hair in a style that always covers the points of her ears, but she can’t hide what she is from others like her.
Talus is one of the chosen, an Elven Prince who has earned the right to be part of the squadron of Elven/Dragon shifters that guard the Elven Empire. He, like his brethren, have been in Dragon form for too long, and have lost a part of his heritage to the character he becomes.

It takes one look for these two unlikely mates for them to recognize each other for what they are, Life Mates. The question is, can she tame his Dragon, or will she be bound to forever love half an Elf?

THE GUARDIANS OF THE EMPIRE – 12-book series
( … and whatever short stories I can manage to convince MA to write 😉 … )

A sequel to the ‘Elven Chronicles’ and ‘One Empire’ series.

There are twelve Elves who have proven their worth over the Millennium. They have won the right to shift into Dragons, so they have become Guardians of the Elven Empire. They have won this honor through valor, might and compassion. They are prime Elves, the sons of Kings, but they have been alone for too long, without the hope of meeting their Life Mates. Because of this, they are beginning to lose their identities. They live their lives for duty, as they fly patrols around the borders of the boundary Emperor Lothrariel and his Kings created to keep the Empire safe. But, one day at a time, they are beginning to succumb to their Draconian half. It is time something was done to stop this, and their leader, King Gerolth, has set a plan in place to take care of this problem.

Somewhere in the Elven worlds there are Life Mates for these Guardians, and King Gerolth is determined that they will be found, before it is too late.

The Goddess – book 1 available now!

My Chat with Elijah … again ;)

Hello and welcome!

I am so excited one my BBF is visiting again. Ever since I heard his book was coming out I was so excited and he didn’t disappoint.

Hello, Eniko. I’m Natasza Waters. Currently, my nose is buried in Dixie Under Siege, so I thought I’d ask Lt. Elijah Bach to visit with you and your readers. He’s a veteran Navy SEAL and the hero in my newest release called Cricket Under Fire.

Please welcome Elijah!

DAYUM Natasza! I know I meet him before but … DAYUM … DAYUM … where is my fan?

elijah-capture.png

Do you have a nickname?
For sure! All special operators have a team name. Sometimes, they’re off the wall and a result of a characteristic or skill. My instructor on BUD/s tagged me with the name Crux. If you read Cricket Under Fire, you’ll learn why.

What is one word that best describes you?
Depends who you ask. he says grininng Ask one of the team guys and he’ll probably tell you I’m a hard-liner. When we’re tasked on a mission, the squad wants it to go as planned, doesn’t always happen that way. As a lieutenant of Alpha Squad, I have expectations, but I know my men and their abilities. They set the bar pretty high.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Ran ten miles with Mace and Tinman this afternoon. Came home, took a shower, then slipped on a pair of drawstring sweatpants… and that’s about all. he winks

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
She gets Bravo Zulus from me. SEALs wear a uniform and fight for Uncle Sam, but we’ve all got a little good, bad and ugly inside us. The squad’s CPO Mason Briggs says it best. “We’re just blood and bone.” Until Rayne came to work at Base Command, I tended to keep my relationships short n sweet. Miss Levy changed all that.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Team guys are always yanking on each other’s chains. Gotta be that way to de-ice ourselves from warfare. During Mission: Tropic Tango, where Rayne and I partnered up, I made a rookie mistake. The guys ribbed me about it. he chuckles I deserved it.

What is your favourite drink?
I’ll drop by Breakers bar with the rest of Alpha Squad to throw back a couple brews.

What is your greatest fear?
Once I knew Rayne felt the same about me as I did about her, my fear of losing her skyrocketed. Falling in love with someone has an effect on a man. I’ve seen a lot of things overseas most people haven’t. Yeah, he shakes his head think a little fear keeps us centered. It’s natural, and maybe I’m a little obsessed of my forever gal, but I just want her to be safe.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Elijah chuckles Although not always the case, it’s not the place that makes a date romantic but the woman you’re with.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
That’s an easy one. The smell of home. There’s no place I’d rather be. Think any SEAL will tell ya that family comes first after Uncle Sam is finished with us.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Hmm, good question. Had a lot of years being a card-carrying bachelor. As cheesy as it sounds, when I saw a woman laugh or a gal with a beautiful smile, that always drew my attention. Reminds guys like us that not everything in this world is evil.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
It’s no secret Rayne Levy is the woman who stopped me dead in my tracks. Like most single guys, I had a tendency to keep things simple. When Rayne was hired by base command, Nina, her trainer, got in my face and told me to steer clear of Rayne. SEALs have high-octane professions. Takes a special woman to rein us in. From our first encounter, I had no doubt Miss Levy was special. Smart. Sweet. I loved the way she looked at life. I couldn’t ignore how she looked at me. And I sure as hell couldn’t get her out of my head. For three months, I kept my distance, then a mission brought us together. It didn’t take me long to realize Rayne was the woman I wanted to build a white picket fence with.

What is one word that best describes her?
Real. She’s down to earth. Smart. Caring. Sexy. Brave. Inquisitive. Guess that’s a whole lot more than one word, but she’s all of those things.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Think Natasza is working on Dixie Under Siege which will be the second book in A Warrior’s Passion series. Dix owns the new coffeehouse in Coronado called the Erotic Bean. Commander Josh Hunter assumed Ghost’s role at NAB, found out that someone is stalking her. Problem is years ago, Dix and Josh were engaged. I know Josh, he’ll catch the guy, but I also think he wants to mend some fences with his ex. But he’s gonna have firefight on his hands.

So excited to see you again, learned a few more things since last time. Thank you for the chat.

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

I hope you enjoyed the new chat with Elijah. If you missed the last one, you can check it out here. I rather enjoyed being Cricket for a few LOL

Look at this delicious cover, and I promise you the story is too 😉

CricketUnderFire_LRG.jpg

As he mentioned, he hails from Cricket Under Fire, book 1 in the A Warrior’s Passion Series by one of my fave authors, Natasza Waters.

Military Romance – Rayne Levy’s new career is about to take an explosive turn.

Rayne’s excited about her future. Hired by NAB Coronado as a tactical analyst at Base Command, she’s up for the challenge. On her first day, she meets Lt. Elijah Bach, a rugged Navy SEAL with a sizzling reputation. His men respect him, but Rayne’s training officer warns her that the handsome warrior and proverbial bachelor is a boatload of trouble. 

Tasked on Operation: Tropic Tango, Elijah is partnered with Rayne. Her inexperience isn’t the problem. She’s intelligent, tenacious and determined to prove herself. For six months he’s struggled to keep his distance. From the sidelines, he’s watched her confidence soar. Now, they’re thrown together on a mission. Concealing his hunger is one thing. Defying the slow-burn of desire is another, but when Rayne walks too close to the flames, his control unravels, and so does his ability to resist what he wants most.

Check out the trailer

My review: 5 stars ( I wish I could give more)

It is sooo goooood to be back in this world.
I really enjoyed reading Rayne and Elijah’s story, they fit so well. Their story is suspense, adventure mixed with hot scenes and some laughs too. It was great to see again the couples from the previous series, love their close-knit group and how their ladies match their men so well, they protect their own…. together.
I am looking forward to more… and hopefully soon.

My Chat with Drew

Hello and welcome!

One of my newest BBF agreed to chat with me and I am so excited. I met him in September and you might remember I posted about the audiobook, if you missed it, check it out here.

Please welcome Drew!

What is your full name?
Really? My full name? I don’t usually share that information with strangers, but since this is an interview, I’ll tell you. It’s Andrew Niles Whitney. I know, it’s a horrible name.

Do you have a nickname?
That’s easy, it’s Drew. I’ve had a few other nicknames, but Drew is the most public-friendly if you know what I mean.

What is one word best describes you?
My friends would say it’s reliable. But my family would probably say it’s smartass. Wait, is this blog for mature audiences only? If not, let’s just go with reliable.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
What do you want me to be wearing…? Okay, just kidding.
It’s my day off, and it’s sweltering in Sacramento today. Because of that, I’m barefoot and wearing khaki cargo shorts with a faded blue t-shirt.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
For the most part, I do. I’m not happy about that whole lying thing, but I was trying to get the girl and get our happy ending. I wouldn’t usually lie like that for any reason, but I was afraid of losing Emily. I took desperate measures, but that’s a testament to how much I love her. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do. Unfortunately, it almost lost me the girl. All in all, I’d say it was an honest portrayal of who I am. If anything, readers got to see the best and the very worst of me.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Ha! This is a great question. My kids make me laugh out loud pretty regularly. They’re complete goofballs most of the time. I try to make them laugh too, but sometimes they just don’t get my dad jokes.

What is your favourite dessert?
Pie. I love pie. Any kind too, I’m not picky. I’m also a big fan of fruit for dessert. I think I picked that up after spending so much time in Hawaii.

What is your favourite drink?
I’m a beer drinker. That is if you mean alcoholic drinks. Outside of alcoholic beverages, I love coffee, and I always have a bottle of water on me.

What is your greatest fear?
This question hurts to think about. As a widower, I’ve already lived through one of my greatest fear. But I always worry about something happening to one of my kids.

What is your favourite colour?
Let’s see… what is my favorite color? I’m not sure. It’s been a long time since someone has asked me that. I guess if I had to pick, I’d say I love greens and blues, sort of like the colors of the ocean.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Before kids, I didn’t wear anything to bed. But with kids in the house, I can’t sleep in the nude. You never know when a little kid is going to sneak in and crawl into bed with you. Since becoming a dad, I sleep in cotton pajama pants. If it’s cold, I’ll add a t-shirt too.

What is the perfect romantic date?
If I’m being honest, my perfect romantic date includes lots of sex. Dinner is an excellent addition too that perfect date, but sex is always at the top of my ‘perfect date’ list.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I’m not ticklish. Seriously, why would you think I’m ticklish? Just don’t touch my knees or run your fingers down my inner thigh, and we’ll get along just fine.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Oh, good question! I LOVE the smell of fresh-baked cookies. When I was a kid, my mom was always baking something, and I miss the smell of baked treats. I can’t bake. I manage to cook regular meals for the kids and me, but baking isn’t something I’ve temped yet.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
I’m a leg man. If I’m not close enough to see a woman’s eyes, it’s her legs that will usually catch my eye. But I love a pair of beautiful, soulful eyes. I can usually learn a lot from someone’s eyes.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
I do have someone in my life. Emily and I are living together and raising our daughter together. We’re engaged and planning our wedding. I’m happier than I’ve ever been, and I believe she is too.

What is one word best describes her?
I’m not sure I can describe her in one word. She’s… everything. She’s perfect. Okay, maybe not perfect, but she’s perfect for me. She’s feisty. She’s smart. She’s complicated. She’s charming, kind, and she has no idea just how special she is. She keeps me on my toes, that’s for sure. Okay, if you’re forcing me to choose one word, that word is captivating.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
My book is the second in a series. Each story is a standalone. Book one is about Emily’s brother. If you think she’s a little crazy, wait until you meet him. Book three is about Mike Murphy and Rachel Williams. Mike and Rachel were high school sweethearts who lost their way. She’s been hiding something from him for fourteen years, but now it’s time for the truth to come out.

Thank you Drew for joining me and answering my nosy questions. Hugs to Emily, lucky woman! Looking forward to listen to Mike and Rachel’s story too.

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

I hope you enjoyed the chat. I sure did 😉

Drew hails from Accidental LiesAn Unputdownable, Steamy, Sexy Contemporary Romance Novel – book 2 in the Accidental Love Series by Dana Mason.

AccidentalLies-audiocover.jpg

It was only meant to be a vacation fling….

Three blissful weeks on the beautiful island of Maui are exactly what I need…. Hula dancers, Mai Tais with cocktail umbrellas, and golden beaches – what more could I want?

Then I see her, and I realize she’s exactly what I want.

She was locked outside of her hotel room, all buttoned-up in a suit definitely not appropriate for a vacation, and wearing a fierce take-no-shit stance. But I couldn’t help noticing the pain behind her eyes….

Four Mai Tais later, the chemistry between us is hotter than the Hawaiian sun, and we decide to spend the rest of our vacation unwinding, undressing, and getting to know each other a little better….

We have just two rules:

1) No talking about our lives outside Maui.
2) This is just a vacation fling.

That means I can’t tell her about the heartbreak that haunts me, and the secret I have back home. It means I can’t ask her about the sorrow in her eyes, and why she has such a wall up – a wall I’m determined to bring crashing down.

When the sun sets on our trip, can I say goodbye to this gorgeous blue-eyed beauty? Or am I going to be tempted to break the rules?

And if I do decide to be a rule-breaker, will she even want me when she finds out who I really am?

This is a full-length, standalone romance with some hot-under-the-collar action, no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA. For fans of R.S Grey, Whitney G., and Vi Keeland, Accidental Lies features a hot AF alpha and a sizzling will-they-wont-they love story that will have you totally addicted!

My review: audiobook edition – 5 stars

What a great story! I fell in love with Drew from the first, no wonder Emily fell for him. Their chemistry is off the charts. The journey to HEA is not easy, with unpredictable twists, at times I wanted to jump in and shout JUST SAY IT !!! LOL
They both need healing from losing their spouse and I am glad they work it out in the end, they are perfect for each other. The ending is sweet, got me tearing up. A great second chances contemporary romance that I recommend with 5 stars.
The experience was made even better by the voice of one of my fave narrators, Ms. Navarro performs with passion. I love listening to the many characters she brings to life.

I found this series through Ms. Kelsey Navarro, who is my newest voice crushes, added to my “eargasm’ list. Thank you Kelsey ❤

I listened to book 1, Accidental Groom and gave it 4.5 stars

My review:
Accidental?
A good romance mixed with drama, smexy scenes, a few laughs, it ends in HEA but what a ride! The story evolves and as I got to know them, Mac and Kelley are more than they appear. They are great together, their chemistry is hot and they help each other on the healing path from their troubled pasts. It touches some sensitive topics and the author handled them so well. The secondary characters are really helpful and some do elicit strong emotions. – 4 stars
Ms. Navarro is a storyteller and such a pleasure to listen to how she brings the characters and their emotions to life. Love the voices she gives them. – 5 stars

Book 3, Accidental Secrets will be released on December 5 in ebook. Hope the audio will be released shortly after and Ms. Navarro is narrating it.

My Chat with Albert – KaLiCon Reader’s Bundle – day 8

Hello and welcome!

Enjoy the chat with my next guest.

What is your full name?
Albert Cowden

Do you have a nickname?
Sometimes I’ve been called “Doc” by close friends.

What is one word that best describes you?
Complicated

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
A blinding-white Oxford shirt, jeans, and sandals.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Yes and no. She understood my longing to find the love of my life before it was too late, and she realized how frustrated I was with everybody hovering around me as if I were an invalid—which I’m NOT—but I don’t think she truly understood the complicity of my nature. Her readers will, though. Some will recognize themselves in me.

What makes you laugh out loud?
When Rose and I were fooling around, she’d push me away, giggling, afraid we’d get caught, but then she’d tilt her chin in that funny way with a smile that lit up her eyes, and I knew then and there we’d be together again soon. I had to be patient!

What is your favourite dessert?
Apple crisp—the kind my wife Jean makes. The buttery crust melts in my mouth. Although she overcooks chicken sometimes, Jean prepares mouth-watering meals and desserts for our family.

What is your favourite drink?
I enjoy a chilled glass of Chardonnay while sitting on the porch watching the sun come down over Silver Birch Bay.

What is your greatest fear?
Dying before righting the wrong that has haunted me for decades.

What is your favourite colour?
Kingfisher-blue. My granddaughter, Lauren, says my eyes are kingfisher-blue, but that’s not why I like the colour best. Kingfishers remind me of the cottage. I often see one perched on a tree before it plunges headfirst into the bay after a fish. But the belted kingfisher also eats amphibians, insects, small mammals, and reptiles. Although you asked about colour, I couldn’t help myself from digressing about this specific bird because my science brain never shuts off.
Kingfisher-blue? Doing a quick web search… aaah…

kingfisher-3
source

What is the perfect romantic date?
I’d take the boat—the Cobalt, not the runabout— with Rose across the bay to the island. We’d sit on one of the large flat rocks on the northside of the island, where there aren’t many people, if any, and share a picnic of wine, smoked gouda, or another exotic cheese, and salty crackers (not the kind that tastes like cardboard). Later, warmed by both the wine and sun, we’d peel off our clothes and go swimming, then, well . . .
Smoked Gouda is my fave cheese YUM

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I’m not ticklish on my neck or under my arms or even on my feet, which are common places for people to feel ticklish, but I am somewhat ticklish along my spine when the touch is exceptionally light. I like a soft touch, and I like tickling others in fun.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
The aroma of cornbread just out of the oven is my favourite smell. It reminds me of the first time I went to the reserve, which was when the chief’s wife served Rose and me tea with cornbread. I smothered my portion in butter and honey. Delicious!

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
I assume you expect me to say that what catches my eye about a woman is her smile, her figure, or her eyes. But what draws my attention to a woman most is her demeanour, especially one that’s warm, positive, accepting of me and herself —not needy. I can see this in her body language and face.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Hmm . . . Maybe.

What is one word that best describes her?
Captivating

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Readers can expect to see some of the characters from Moonshadow in future novels. They’ll be surprised by the settings and circumstances in the new books, however. Surprises will be the norm.

Thank you Albert for chatting with me. Looking forward to reading your story.

My Chat with James – KaLiCon Reader’s Bundle – day 5

Hello and welcome!

Thanks for joining me on Day 5 of the “Discover new worlds” for the KaLiCon Reader’s Bundle.

Please welcome today’s guestuhmguests?
This should be interesting.

What is your full name?
James Matthews

Do you have a nickname?
James: Nope
Mac raises his eyebrow What do you mean no? I’ve given you a couple of them.
James glares at Mac Correction, no appropriate nicknames

What is one word best describes you?
I’d say that I’m pretty loyal

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Honestly? I just got off a rather long day shift so I’m still wearing my after work baggy black t-shirt and a pair of grey sweats that have a splattered bleach stain on my left pant leg.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I really hope so! She’s still working on it currently and hasn’t finished it quite yet.

What makes you laugh out loud?
I’m always up for a good comedian or messing around with my coworkers when there isn’t a dire situation.

What is your favourite dessert?
Apple crumble

What is your favourite drink?
Let’s see… For alcohol it would have to be just straight rum on ice. For other drinks it would have to be anything peach related.

What is your greatest fear?
Being cheated and left…again

What is your favourite colour?
Hmmm…  probably blue

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
When I sleep alone, probably just boxers. When I’m sleeping with my partner I don’t wear anything, mostly because it becomes annoying when he gets all touchy-feely.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Our first one
Mac pipes in Really…? Out of all the dates that I took you on that one was your favourite? We literally just went to dinner at an Italian restaurant and then solved a murder.
Yeah, so?
Mac: ... Okay, I’m good with that…

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
James glances nervously to Mac who is now sitting on the couch beside him Very ticklish, but mainly on my ribs.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
James looking at Mac Just don’t laugh… it used to remind me of you when we were in high school.
Mac: Me?
James: Yes you, I used to smell Aloe Vera.
Mac: Seriously?
James blushing Yes… Hey! You promised you wouldn’t laugh!
Mac: I never promised anything Mac chuckles as James swats at him

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Ummm, well with my ex-wife it was the fact that she wanted me more than anything else. But I guess with other females it was always their eyes and the way that they held themselves when they walked.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
James: Y-yes well sort of. Mac? Are you going to say hi now that you sat in for most of the interview?
Mac: Hello! I’m Mackenzie and I’m-
James: Okay I think that’s enough out of you!

What is one word best describes him?
It would have to be annoying

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
It is and it isn’t. It’s a single book that’s a mini series within the covers. Each chapter is its own story but it’s also in chronological order.

Thank you so much James … and Mac for stopping by today. I am looking forward to reading your stories.

Gemini: It was a Spanish film. I can’t remember either.
Justice: We sat in the back row and they…all through the movie their hands were all over me. It was fucking awesome. And kissing and … fuck. For, like, two hours.
Yvonne: Then we took you to the rooftop garden at Jennifer’s building. She was kind enough to let us up there. And keep everyone else away.
Justice: You drove me insane
Gemini: It was excruciatingly lovely, teasing and tormenting you for so long.
Justice: They finally, uh, you know, finished me. I saw stars. And not just because we were on a rooftop.

Gemini: This is a free story that covers how I met Justice and rescued him from an, ahem, deadly situation.
Justice: He saved my life.
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. She enjoys portraying our encounters in great detail glances at Justice and Yvonne. Although I can’t say I blame her.

I am looking forward to reading your story. I really enjoyed chatting with you, thank you for joining me today.

My Chat with Diealnor – KaLiCon Reader’s Bundle – day 2

Hello and welcome!

Did you enjoy day 1 in the “Discover new worlds” for the KaLiCon Reader’s Bundle ? I hope so.

Welcome to day 2, my guest is somebody very new to me, wish me luck 😉

What is your full name?
Diealnor ip Orfan dua Tramki – it’s a mouthful, I know. I swear, I didn’t choose it, it was forced on me.
I am not even going to try to pronounce that.

Do you have a nickname?
Diea…like idea…only…not.
Now that is better.

What is one word best describes you?
Alone. My name makes me an outcast amongst my people, and really everyone. My family, well, they weren’t good men and I’m tainted by their blood so I must not be good either. Most people stay away from me because of it.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
The author portrayed me as being hopeful. I left my homeland to escape the persecution I faced there, hoping that in a new land, if I lied about who I was, I could escape my past, but I know that’s not true. People always find out. I wasn’t hopeful when I fled. I am now though, so…I guess…yes, to my author.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Bubbles. Don’t share that and I will deny it if questioned. But they tickle against your skin when they pop and they make children forget the world around them for a few moments to chase after the shimmering ball of soapy air. They are magical and laughter is a wonderful form of magic.
SHHH don’t tell him I revealed his secret, but isn’t he sweet? AWWW

What is your favourite dessert?
What’s dessert? I eat berries after most meals. Does that count? And the baker in the city makes cinnamon rolls for breakfast.
Cinnamon rolls can be dessert, so can berries.

What is your favourite drink?
Mead, though I’m more used to just water. Humans brew good mead though.

What is your greatest fear?
That I will turn into a monster like my father and brothers and the world will turn against me like it did against them, deservedly so.

What is your favourite colour?
Silver, like Sagila’s eyes.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Why would you wear anything when you go to sleep?
I know, right?

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Her spirit. There’s something about a shining soul that entrances me, draws me close like a moth to the flame. Strength and kindness shine out of someone like a gift waiting to be claimed, but that claiming is not a thing of taking. It has to be earned and given in return.
I am already falling in love with him…

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Sagila. She’s the most perfect creature I’ve ever met. She never turned from me, not even when she learned my name; she stood close. I never thought to love myself, nor for someone to love me. It is a gift beyond measure and I will cherish it for an eternity.

What is one word best describes her?
Strong. She fled an abusive relationship and had to start over on her own, bereft of money or family or friends. Yet it didn’t break her, and it didn’t dim her spirit. She worked hard to give herself a life of her own choosing. She is my inspiration and my strength. It is my honor to offer my own as a meager protection for her safety now.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
I suppose… I am the start of the future. My grandson is to be a prince, someone the world will want to destroy, who will have to trust in fate and love to thrive. He will be charming and true and change the world with the way he lives. He will be a king like no other before him, and his children will be the only hope of my – of all – peoples.

Thank you Diealnor for chatting with me, hope you will return one day in the future with updates.

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

So? What do you think? Will you enjoy reading Diealnor’s story? I am looking forward to reading it. He hails from The Elf and the Shoemaker by Andi Lawrencovna.

Thank you Andi, for sending my future BBF (book boyfriend) for a chat 😉

Follow Ms. Lawrencovna on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date, other links to social media sites can be found on the website.

Andi Lawrencovna lives in Northeast Ohio where she was born and raised. She has spent nearly her entire life in the same area, minus the semester she spent studying abroad in England. Though she has not gone back recently, her lifelong goal is to open a pub in one of the small little towns in the Cotswold’s and shear sheep in the backyard during the slow hours of the day. Or, barring that, write about a pub keep with sheep who gets abducted by trolls or enspelled by a siren. Either path works for her.
She recently finished her MFA in creative writing from a low residency program out of state. Her mad-schemes of world pub domination currently are on the back burner while she endeavors to pass on her love of literature and writing to local area writers groups and panels.
