My Chat with Charlie!

Hello and welcome!

OOOOH you are going to looove my guest today!

I met him recently and oh boy he took me on some really naughty adventures.

Please welcome Charlie!

Charlie

What is your full name?
Charles Edward Handcock

Do you have a nickname?
Charlie

What is one word that best describes you?
Awesome? But that can come across as a little cocky… So how about tenacious?

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
My airline uniform. I know… Boring, but it’s true. Gotta make a living. I’m just about to board a flight to L.A.
A pilot uniform? Boring? I think not YUM

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
For the most part, yes. At times, she may have gone overboard with feelings, especially in the most recent book, which she plans to publish at the end of October or early November. Sure, shit really hit the fan for me, and I reached a new low, but… Whatever. I was a bit out of it. Maybe she wasn’t too far off, but I’m not too pleased with the way she described it all.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Bloopers. I always watch movies all the way to the end of the credits, just in case directors decided to include bloopers. There’s something about top-notch actors messing up, then laughing at themselves.

What is your favourite dessert?
I don’t have much of a sweet tooth. Whiskey or great sex would be my answer.

What is your favourite drink?
I’m not a picky drinker. I’ll drink what people give me, but if I’m celebrating something important, I’ll have Irish Whiskey, Knappogue Castle if I can find it.

What is your greatest fear?
I can’t say that I have one that rules my life. Like most people, I’m not a big fan of public speaking, and dying isn’t something I’m looking forward to, but I’m not “afraid” of those things. I’ll go with animals that could kill me, like bears or poisonous snakes.

What is your favourite colour?
I’ve never really settled on one. When I was a kid, I loved red. Then I went through a blue phase. Now, I’d have to say the variety of colors in my mysterious stewardess’s eyes. I can’t give it a name, unfortunately, but the color of her irises is my answer.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing. I like to sleep naked.

What is the perfect romantic date?
I’m not picky. There’s nothing wrong with dinner and a movie, as long as it’s followed by a long love-making session.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Can’t say that I am.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I can think of several smells I really like. One particular woman’s arousal scent comes to mind (the one I met in Spain), but you’re probably asking for something else. Let me think… Apple pie? My late mother used to bake it. Freshly baked apple pie reminds me of her.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Depends on which way she’s facing. I’m an ass guy mostly, but her face is important. Her eyes need to tell a story. I need to see there’s life and something worth discovering behind her expression.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Yes. I’ve met not one but two incredible women, but we’re still getting to know one another. I want them to become a much more significant part of my life. So much so in fact that I’ve started taking French lessons, and I’ve significantly altered my lifestyle so I can make more time for both of them. The recent self-discoveries I made while in Spain affected me more than I thought possible.

What is one word that best describes her?
As I said, I’ve got two women, and I don’t want to ruin my story if you share this interview with people who haven’t read it yet, so I’ll be a little vague here.

The one I’ve been obsessed with the longest: mesmerizing.

The new one? I can’t just use one word. I have to go with these words: gorgeous and incredibly talented.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yes, The Stewardess’s Diary is an episodic novel, which contains ten parts, but the story doesn’t end there. At least I hope not! The author is giving me carte blanche, but I recently came across not one but two new diaries. The stuff my special ladies wrote in there… you wouldn’t believe it! Let’s just say that I’m ready to move heaven and earth to create the happy ending my ladies and I deserve.

Thank you so much Charlie for joining me today and looking forward to new adventures. Safe flight and blue skies!

Thanks for joining us, hope you enjoyed the chat.

As Charlie mentioned he hails from The Stewardess’s Diary by S. M. Pratt. This is a serial, which usually I avoid getting into, but the story intrigued me when I discovered the second instalment in an Freeboksy email. This are not your usual serial, each story can stand on its own and can be read out of order. Since I like things in order I had to go back and get the 1st one too…

10covers.png

He never expected a lost diary to unlock a world of adventure, mystery… and lust.

Charlie wasn’t prepared for a journey like this. The airline pilot opens his briefcase to find a beautiful leather-bound notebook: a diary. Inside its intricate pages, he discovers a captivating series of erotic encounters that progress from naive to reckless to ravenously sexy.

Charlie reads the diary from cover to cover much more than a few times. His obsession leads to a question: How can he possibly find this incredible stewardess? As Charlie crisscrosses the globe in his search, he finds his own opportunities to expand his sexual experiences. But can he ever find the one woman who sets his appetite on fire?

The Stewardess’s Diary is a steamy novel written in episodes.

My Chat with Dax

Hello and welcome!

Today I have a delicious man in uniform I met a few weeks ago. Not HAVE-have, I meant here… for a chat… I wish sigh

Please welcome Dax!
Thank you Susan! You are brilliant, but you should have warned a gal you know? He is sooo gorgeous… no wonder Mac was dumbstruck at first sight LOL

AHEM I clear my throat and try to gather my runaway thoughts and I see him smile as if he knows the reaction he caused.

What is your full name?
Daxton Chambers

Do you have a nickname?
Dax

What is one word that best describes you?
Patient

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
looks down at self Jeans. Black T-shirt. And if you must know… boxers Mack bought for me with a moose on them.
cheeky isn’t he? 😀

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
She did a pretty good job, although I love how she nailed Mack’s personality and her tendency to ramble.
Yes, she made me like Mack a lot and laugh too.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Mackenzie. It doesn’t matter what we’re doing, or what kind of mood I’m in…my Mackenzie can always make me laugh with her rambling ways.

What is your favourite dessert?
Double chocolate brownies
Oh Brownies are among my faves too… so yummy… I got a friend to make some, because I am hopeless at baking, but love to eat them

browniessource

What is your favourite drink?
Lone Star Beer

What is your greatest fear?
Not being there for Mackenzie. I don’t worry about myself, necessarily, when I’m on duty, but I worry about what it would do to her if something happened to me.

What is your favourite colour?
Brown.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
he grins Do you really want me to answer that? I think the fact that I’ve got a beautiful sensual woman sleeping next to me every night can tell you what I wear.

What is the perfect romantic date?
he rolls his eyes I’m not romantic. At all. But for Mackenzie I’ve learned to make the effort because she is a die-hard romantic. The other night I bought three dresses for Mackenzie to choose from. Left them on her bed and told her when I’d pick her up. I didn’t tell her where we were going. I wore my Ranger uniform, because she loves me in it, and we went out to a special spot my buddy Conor Paxton told me about. He’s a Game Warden and knows all the good hidey holes. We had a picnic and we danced to the song that was playing on the radio on our first date.
If that isn’t romantic, I don’t know what is… sigh

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I’m not ticklish, and it drives Mackenzie crazy that I’m not.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
he gives me a naughty grin chocolate and whip cream…and I plead the fifth on what it reminds me of.
I am sure we can use our imagination for that… right ladies?

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
One of the things that attracted me to Mackenzie was her honesty. And the way she says whatever she’s thinking. In my line of work I usually have to dig and dig and dig to get at the truth, but with Mack, I know exactly what she’s thinking at all times. It’s refreshing and I like the fact she doesn’t play games. If she’s mad at me for something, she tells me straight out. It’s refreshing and I couldn’t imagine ever being in love with someone who hides stuff from me. Hell, I couldn’t imagine being in love with anyone other than Mackenzie.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
As I think you probably know by now…yes. Mackenzie.

What is one word best describes her?
his smile is warm Refreshing.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yes. I was first. You know that saying, “save the best for last?” It’s bullcrap. he laughs Susan wrote the best story first, mine. I heard that she was just going to write about me and my law enforcement friends, but then the firefighters insisted on getting in on the action. So the series will ultimately be fifteen books long. Book number nine will be out in November 2017 and the others will continue after that.

I am looking forward to read your friends’ books. Thank you for your time, Dax. Hugs to Mac.

Did you enjoy the chat? I hope you did. Thanks for joining us.

cover

Dax is the hero from Justice for Mackenzie, book 1 in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes by Susan Stoker.

Mack blinked, hoping she’d be able to see something…anything, but she remained as blind as she’d been since she’d first woken up. She struggled desperately to hold the scream inside.

A member of the famed Texas Rangers, Daxton Chambers has dealt with more than his share of depravity. But the Lone Star Reaper takes evil to a whole new level, kidnapping and burying women alive. It’s Dax’s job to help keep San Antonio safe, but even with help from friends in various law enforcement agencies, the killer remains two steps ahead. It’s hardly the ideal time for a relationship, but Mackenzie Morgan is too luscious to resist. Dax wants her–which makes her an instant target for his newfound enemy.

When the Reaper gets personal, it will take every ounce of Daxton’s considerable skill and training to keep Mack alive. ​

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Erin Mallon, who is becoming one of my fave voices.

My review:

“I want a Dax ;)”
Overall 5 stars •  Performance 5 stars • Story 5 stars
It was easy to fall in love with Dax. Kind, loyal, strong and with a big heart, no wonder he caught Mack’s heart. She is hilarious, clumsy and talks a lot, but that is what makes her endearing. She made me laugh out loud with her rambles. I loved that the story is about a second chance at HEA for an older couple than the usual 20something. Quite a trip these two have on the way to that though. I cried when he talked to her while watching her last minutes on the monitor, my heart almost stopped but it all ends well. Loved the friendship between Dax and his crew from different divisions and how they have each other’s backs. Looking forward to Cruz’s story.
Ms. Mallon really breathed life into the characters, the various voices distinct and the story flowed easily with the emotions clearly expressed. Very enjoyable listening experience.

My Chat with Bestiale and Charmeur

Hello and welcome!

Get a cup or glass of something and make yourself comfortable, do I have a story to tell you, I am so excited!!! Keep reading!

A few days ago…

Thankful that I’d dressed for freezing conditions, I cast a look around the snow frosted landscape. I’d been waiting for Heather Rainier to arrive for the interview for the last several minutes.

The portal was right where she’d told me it would be, and my destination was obvious when I finally got up the guts to open my eyes. I’m not a fan of rollercoasters but that’s how the pit in my stomach felt for several minutes as I crossed the frozen ground and climbed the curving flights of steps leading to the castle. Even frozen, it was a beautiful sight, all capped with snow like frosting on a cake.

I admit to feeling a little cowardly about using the knocker on the massive front door without Heather at my side. She knew these guys…or at least knew they wouldn’t devour her on site. As a stranger showing up on their doorstep, would they show me the same consideration?

Purr-kitt?

The unmistakable feline inquiry made me twirl around, the snow and slush crunching under my boots as I turned. An elegant, pristinely white cat perched on a wide baluster nearby. She sat there, Sphinx-like, as if she knew her greeting would startle me, the minx. She blinked eyes which were the color of violets and her ears twitched when an icy wind tossed her silky fur about.

She stood and stretched as I came close and reached out to stroke her. Hello there, kitty. You wouldn’t happen to know the occupants of this castle well, would you?

Purr-kittshe replied, leaping into my arms and rubbing her chin against mine, as if she knew me already. She made herself comfortable in my arms and began to purr. The sound and deep vibration had a definite calming effect on me as I turned back to the door and eyed the knocker, a representation of the face of some ferocious beast. The thought of lifting it and knocking didn’t fill me with confidence. I really wanted to wait for Heather to arrive, since she’d set the interview up, but I was freezing my butt off, and surely the cat wanted inside, too.

As if in response, she meowed again. Her tone, not plaintive with cold, but instead reassuring, gave me the confidence to go for it. Later I could tell Heather, who must’ve gotten held up, that I’d taken her advice. Seize the day, baby!

Maybe it was my nerves, but the sound the knocker made against the beast’s face seemed to boom through the whole castle. Somewhere within the structure, a door slammed. The cat nonchalantly watched the door, while making biscuits on my arms. I took a deep breath. She had to live here and she looked really well cared for. Surely if they didn’t eat her they wouldn’t eat me.

The door was flung open. What— A shadow filled the door, like filled it to the top, and a frightening beast suddenly loomed out and spotted me. No, he definitely glowered at me. He had fangs. He yanked open the door farther, coming into the light, and revealing his huge clawed hands.

I did what any self-respecting sissy would do. I screamed. He winced, showing more of his fangs, and I screamed again, even louder. Beasts in theory are one thing. Beasts in reality are a whole different deal. Still screaming, I had enough presence of mind to notice that the cat rolled her beautiful violet eyes and leap into his arms.

He winced at my screaming, looking at me as if I was some crazy loon while clasping the cat to him. With a sigh, he looked at the cat and said, Fleur, one guest is all I can handle right now. This one looks like she enjoys talking, and I don’t want to talk to anyone.

Purrrrr-kitt, the cat replied, bounding to his shoulder so she could rub against the side of his head while she purred.

He looked at her with surprise. Heather sent her?

Rowr. She wacked him on the side of his head with her long tail. I had the impression she was telling him to get with the program.

Sorry, my manners, the beast said in a gravelly, almost painful sounding voice. Please come in… He lifted a brow expectantly.

Eniko. Pleased to…er…meet you. I extended my hand and he began to offer his, looked down at the claws, and put it behind his back. He tried to smile which only showed more fangs and then settled for bowing to me.

You may call me Bestialehe said as he beckoned me into the dark shadows of his domain. Fleur’s purring eased my nerves as I walked into his lair. With a wave of his huge hand, candlewicks flamed to life in holders all about the huge entry hall.

My brother, CharmeurBestiale said, gesturing to another beast, just as huge, yanking a velvet and brocade coat into place on his massive torso, tugging gently at lace sleeve cuffs as he approached and gave me a courtly bow. Bestiale’s fur was a dark brown, and Charmeur’s was a lighter color. As he came into the light, I realized it was a deep auburn color.

I nearly giggled as Charmeur winked at me. This one was as huge as his brother, but Charmeur was every bit the pussy cat Heather had promised me he would be. If he’d answered the door, I wouldn’t have started this interview out with hysterics. And then he smiled. Okay, so I would probably have screamed, because fangs!

Charmeur is mute, so I will speak for him. Bestiale didn’t look happy about having to converse with a stranger twice as much as necessary. Charmeur pointed at her and rubbed his arms, as if indicating I must be cold, and reached for my coat. After he’d hung it with my hat and gloves on a coat tree nearby, he beckoned me with a gesture that was elegant and courtly, despite the presence of razor sharp claws.

As we entered a receiving room, I noticed that Bestiale was hurriedly tying the stock on his shirt, shredding it dreadfully with his claws, cursing beneath his breath until Charmeur knocked his hands away and made quick work of wrapping it and tying a loose knot. Was Bestiale nervous about talking to someone? A stranger?

I waved a hand. Please don’t go to any trouble because of me.

It is no trouble. We both just came in from…a run.

A run?

Yes. It helps…to run…sometimes. Please, have a seat near the fire. It will warm you. He cleared his throat. Mademoiselle Eniko—

Just Eniko, is fine… Bestiale. I know my arrival has caught you off guard. Heather was supposed to be here with me but something must’ve happened to delay her. She said she’d cleared this with Selena. I used one of her fae portals to get here.

A deep growl rumbled in Bestiale’s chest until Charmeur whacked him, cutting the scary sound off. He looked at his brother for several moments and then nodded. Selena failed to mention this to us. The fae enchantress is punishing—

A sudden draft whistled down the chimney, and blew sparks out of the fireplace, where they quickly faded to cinders. Charmeur’s furry brows shot up and he made a slashing motion across his throat with his clawed hands.

Bestiale nodded at him and then looked at me once more. Selena failed to mention your visit. We already have another visitor.

You do? I asked, excitedly, rising from my seat, but neither of them looked inclined to share my excitement. Can I meet her? Please?

Bestiale breathed deep and then let out a long sigh. I’m afraid she has locked herself in her room. She will not speak to us.

I glanced at Charmeur, and the last of my hesitancy or fear about interviewing them dissipated at the tender look of longing in his eyes, as he gazed toward the ceiling. But he looked sad, too, as he rested his chin in his clawed hand, and looked to us once more.

That seemed like the best place to start and I opened my notebook that contained my list of questions. Could you tell me about your visitor?

He hesitated and looked at Charmeur and Fleur, who crowded close to him. Finally he looked at me. Angel is beautiful. Her hair is a mass of wavy red locks. She smells very…good. And she has this way of looking at you…

Like she can see into your souls? I offered, letting my romantic side show a little.

No, well yes, I suppose.

But that’s not what you meant? I’m sorry. Please tell me?

She has this way of looking at you, and you know you’re in big trouble. We got that look right before we left for our run. Right before you arrived. He paused and then nodded and said, Charmeur hopes you didn’t have to wait long at the entry before I answered. You looked cold. We didn’t know you were here.

I shook my head, impressed by their thoughtfulness. I didn’t wait long. And the fire has already warmed me. So why is Angel mad at you?

Bestiale gazed at the fire and then said, She would like to go home but she can’t. And we can’t let her go. It’s not up to us—He glanced between Charmeur and Fleur who were leaning close to him and then finally said out loud. Stop talking at the same time! You’re making my head ache. I know! I know! Not youhe added to me. They were clamoring at me.

I blinked wide. Clamoring? Then I remembered Heather had told me Charmeur and Fleur communicated telepathically with Bestiale, since neither could speak. And I remembered that she’d also said they might be limited in what they could say about certain subjects. Evidently that fae was having some fun at their expense. Sparks sprang up in the fireplace again and I decided to veer to safer subjects.

Where do you sleep?

We have chambers in the castle towers.

So you sleep in beds like men? Oh that came out way worse than I’d intended. I mean, you choose to sleep indoors rather than outside?

He didn’t seem to take any offense. The first few years, I didn’t care where I slept. Outside, inside, it was all the same endless torture of winter. But Fleur complained when I slept outside, saying it made me look wild, and that I’d never… Just suffice it to say she was afraid no one would want to have anything to do with me if I didn’t look at least modestly civilized. I suppose she was right. Angel would’ve been much more frightened of us if I’d confronted her with an unclothed and unkempt appearance. Of course, Charmeur, he said, indicating his brother, never gave in to the wildness. He’s much more conscious of his clothing and appearance, and his former humanity. He is more courtly than I am. Fleur has her own chamber but has fully embraced her feline nature and will nap in your lap if you let her, or anywhere else she has a mind to.

Do you sleep in night clothes?

Bestiale shook his head, showing no trace the question was too personal. I liked to ask such questions in interviews because you never knew what the interviewee would say, and sometimes it helped to break the ice or take the conversation in a fun direction. Such didn’t seem to be the case until I noticed Charmeur shake his head and then sweep his hands across his torso as he half reclined on the chaise he sat upon. He gave her a half shrug and winked at her. Of course he slept in the nude.

Then Bestiale said, Our fur is very thick and warm, so additional clothing is simply for effect. In the nude doesn’t feel like ‘in the nude’ when you’re covered in fur.

Interesting. What is your favorite color? Bestiale, you go first.

Bestiale paused and then said, A clear blue… He rubbed his callused thumb against the rough surface of his fingers as if searching for the right words. With just a tiny hint of green. The color of Angel’s eyes. It changes with her emotions, growing stormy and darker when she’s upset with us—with me.

I wanted to reach out to him, to reassure him. I had a feeling Heather would work it out so he would see what Angel’s blue-green eyes looked like when she was happy as well.

I looked to Charmeur and Fleur. What about you?

The answer was almost instantaneous in coming, as Bestiale said, Red, the color of Angel’s hair. It is lovely and dark. We find red very appealing.

I’ll bet, I replied, feeling a faint blush cross my cheeks at the naughty smile on Charmeur’s face as he looked up at the ceiling again, before making eye contact with me. He held up his hand, and by magic, a rose at the peak of blooming sparkled to existence in his hand, the petals a lovely dark red with a hint of mahogany. He offered it to me and nodded when I took it. It was mine to keep.

darkRed-rose.jpgsource

How lovely. Thank you. It isn’t very often you’re offered a magical rose and I wasn’t about to turn him down. I carefully placed it beside me and scanned my list of questions.

I’d wanted to ask them what word best described them. Sitting with them now, their very names were self-explanatory, but some instinct pushed at me and I asked them anyway.

Bestiale took his time in answering and I was glad I asked when he said, Worried. Maybe resigned?

Could you elaborate?

Worried that not only is Angel mad at us right now, furious, in fact. I’m also worried that she may be trapped her with us for all eternity, through no fault of her own. And I’m resigned because I’ve accepted that we may be in these forms for all eternity. I see no way forward for any of us. Who could love this? he asked, holding up his hands and gesturing to his large and animalistic features. She is right to be fearful of us, especially me. I am socially inept, as you’ve probably guessed.

I shrugged. I don’t know about that. You do all right.

He gazed at his brother and then looked back at me. Evidently his brother had reminded him of his manners. Thank you for saying that.

Shared communication didn’t seem to take long, because a moment later he said,  Charmeur asks me to tell you that he is hopeful. And Fleur … Fleur is a flirt.

Fleur’s response to his utterance was instantaneous, as she made biscuits on the leather of the coat he wore, a durable garment that would’ve been in fashion many years in the past. On him it still looked regal and manly, giving me a hint of the man he’d once been. Fleur purred loudly as she rubbed the side of her face against his furred cheek while wrapping her long tail around the back of his head.

She bids me to tell you she is also hopeful, because she’s going to pay Angel and visit, as if that would somehow do any good.

Purr-kittOh ye of little faith!

Fleur jumped down and padded across the floor to me, rubbing her head against my calves before bounding from the room. I watched as she scampered down the hall to a large staircase and flitted up the steps. Maybe she could somehow coax Angel from her tower rooms. It would be cool to get to meet her but Bestiale said nothing about that.

What makes you laugh out loud?

He shook his head. I haven’t laughed in a very long time. There isn’t much to laugh at around here. Charmeur tapped his shoulder, gestured the fireplace, made an exploding motion with his hands, and then Bestiale gave a slight smile and nodded.

There was this one time I almost laughed, and Charmeur laughed so hard he gave me an ache in my head. Fleur didn’t find it funny at all.

What happened?

She sat on the hearth one day, complaining for the millionth time that she was sick and tired of having to tongue bathe if she wanted to feel clean, because as a cat, she couldn’t stand getting her fur wet. Evidently, the fae heard her complaints and had grown tired of them, because stray sparks exploded from the fire, which she was sitting too close to, and the sparks landed on her tail and it caught fire. She hardly ever complains about her feline toilette these days.

Poor kitty! Did she recover? Wait, how did you know it was the fae that did it, and not just stray sparks?

Because she suffered no permanent damage or scarring. Her tail returned to normal within hours and she complained much less often after that.

What is your greatest fear? Living as a beast for eternity?

They both frowned and shook their heads in a negative fashion and though there were differences in their coloring, it was easy to see that they were brothers. Finally, after glancing at his brother, he held up his hands palm up, showing the rugged calluses, similar to what a leonine predator would have, along with the long, scary claws. We are most afraid of harming Angel, of giving her just cause to fear us. You must understand we would never willingly hurt her, but… He seemed to have trouble getting the words out and Charmeur caught my eye and bared his claws and gave me a mock ferocious expression.

I see. You wouldn’t want to harm her, but you still have the nature of a predator. Is that it?

Charmeur nodded solemnly for both of them and, hoping to lighten the mood, I asked, Do any of you have nicknames? The effect was a charming one as both beasts smiled, and I even heard a little rumble of amusement from Bestiale.

Gesturing to himself, he said, Growing up, my mother would call me Bête. Sometimes they call me by that name. I hope eventually Angel will feel comfortable with it as well. Angel has given Charmeur his own nickname. She calls him Char-moo. The French pronunciation of his given name is hard for her and I think she is self-conscious of her attempts to use it, so she teases sometimes and calls him Char-moo. And Fleur? Understandably, we have nicknamed her Cinder-tail which she finds incredibly irritating.

We spoke a while longer and then I spotted the question I’d saved for last. What one word best describes Angel?

It grew so quiet in the room all I could hear was the crackle of the fire and the occasional gust of wind against the leaded glass windows. It took longer to answer that question than any of the others, but Bestiale finally said, Determined. No, that’s not right. Strong? Powerful. She is all of those things.

One word, I pressed.

He looked to his brother and then looked at me and said, We are of one mind in this. He knows not only what I think but some of what I feel. He says she is everything. Every hope. Every fear. Every dream. With that said, his face relaxed, not exactly into a smile, but at least he seemed to be satisfied with that response. Charmeur nodded.

This question isn’t a part of the interview. I’m just curious. What will you do next?

Bestiale gave a half chuckle. Gesturing at his brother and himself, she said, The last time she saw us we’d lost our tempers with each other and were brawling, right out there, he said, pointing in the direction of the main corridor we’d entered through. She was quite angry at us for not being able to let her leave, which was justifiable, if not totally in our hands. Charmeur will continue in his campaign to charm her, and me? I will give her room to explore the castle. I will probably work in my greenhouse—

You have a greenhouse?

Yes. That is where the rose Charmeur gave you originated. It is the only thing that still grows here, amongst all of us thorns, he added with a wry smile. As I was saying, I will probably work out there and stay out of her way until perhaps she would be willing to spend time with us. And all the while, we will be hoping for assistance from the fae enchantress, Selena.

I had the feeling, even though Heather hadn’t said as much directly, that Selena was behind the current state of affairs in the castle, might possibly have even had something to do with why Heather hadn’t made it to the interview after all. Even so, I couldn’t doubt that Heather would make sure Bestiale, Charmeur, Angel, and even Fleur’s story turned out right in the end.

After I thanked them for taking the time with me, the two beasts invited me to stay for supper, saying that I would be most welcome. I wondered if perhaps they hoped Angel might come down out of curiosity, but I didn’t want to interfere in their plans to woo her, and I already had a date for supper planned, with a hot hero all my own.

I wished them luck at the door, and Bestiale bowed with a regal air. Charmeur took my hand and kissed it, tickling my knuckles with his fur while Fleur twined herself around my calves, wanting to be picked up.

I almost cancelled my plans just to stay a while longer, to soak up the old world charm, and experience the magic just a little longer. But then I remembered Heather’s admonishment. Saying my farewells once more, I returned to my own world, to seize the night and make a little magic of my own.

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

So, what do you think of my adventure?

You can find out how Bestiale, Angel, and Charmeur’s love story turns out when it releases on October 20, 2017 at BookStrand. Use the pre-order link to reserve your copy today.  You can read an excerpt there too.

Cursed with a beastly appearance by a fae enchantress, Bestiale and Charmeur live a lonely, wintry life in exile until a spirited redhead bursts into their lives—right out of thin air.

Angel Hunter challenges them at every turn, determined to return to her home because she misses her friends and what little family she has left. Though she can’t deny the growing connection she shares with Bestial and Charmeur, she must refuse them.

With the help of their crafty little sister and a meddling fae enchantress, they plan to convince her that the Northern Kingdom of Tangere is the only home she could ever want.

When an evil from Angel’s former life finds his way to her new home, intent on her destruction, will the magic of her happily ever after prevail?

Beasts in Winter is book 1 in the Tangere Tales Series by Heather Rainier. As you might know I am a big fan of Ms. Rainier’s Divine Creek Ranch Series and I am so looking forward to venture in her new world. I hope you will join me too.

Sebastien’s fae cousin, Leandre has a bombshell of a secret. Her name is Caresse, he’s her faery bodyguard, and he loves her even though she’s meant for Sebastien. Caresse is unaware that she hasn’t just stumbled into the mystical Southern Kingdom of Tangere, she’s actually returned home.

A powerful bond develops between the three of them as she comes into her own unique powers, jeopardizing the plans of an old, malevolent enemy.

Seeking shelter from a storm for herself and the odd little stray she picked up, Elaina takes refuge in the stronghold of the Knights of the Order of the Dragon. She’s discovered sound asleep with the tiny dragon king curled up beside her, and mayhem ensues when the prince, the huntsman, and the seven knights learn firsthand she’s not some damsel in distress.

When Draconia learns of the enchanting beauty has stolen the hearts of the men whom she desires for herself, she sets a plan into motion that endangers Basile and Rainger’s love for Elaina before it’s barely begun.

My Chat with Nick

Hello and welcome!

Oh you are in for a treat. I met my next guest a couple months ago but his story is still fresh in my mind. Read on and see why.

What is your full name?
Nicholas Patrick Garcia

Do you have a nickname?
Nick. My grandmother and sister are the only ones I’ll allow to call me Nicky.

What is one word best describes you?
One, huh? I guess I’ll go with determined, because I wouldn’t be where I am today if I wasn’t a relentless pain in the ass.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I’m in the middle of a shift, so uniform pants and a polo. It’s a slow night so far, so hopefully I don’t have to pull on the turnout gear.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Yes, she showed everything; the good, the bad, and the ugly. Even my pigheaded stupidity that almost cost me everything. I came around though, right Steph?
That you did indeed 😀

What makes you laugh out loud?
My son. The unfiltered shit that comes out of his mouth cracks me up.

What is your favourite dessert?
My grandmother’s Arroz con leche.
Oh I love rice pudding, sans cinnamon though, I like it with chocolate syrup.

What is your favourite drink?
A cold beer after a long shift.

What is your greatest fear?
My family being in trouble and not being able to help them.

What is your favourite colour?
Pink, the color of my wife’s cheeks when she gets flustered, or turned on. Being married to me, that’s fairly constant.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Tonight, I’ll be sleeping in my uniform pants and polo in case the alarm goes off. Usually at home, just a pair of pajama pants. My girl gives off a lot of heat.

What is the perfect romantic date?
I always try to take Ellie somewhere nice on the rare occasion we’re without kids. One night when her parents kept them overnight, we drove to a deserted beach and watched the waves from inside my truck. Since I’m a gentleman, I won’t say what else happened inside the truck he winks Even after all this time, just being together is enough for the both of us.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Behind my knees. Unfortunately, it’s the one place my wife and daughter could reach.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Vanilla. Ellie favors a vanilla perfume lately that drives me crazy. I call her my sexy cookie. But I guess you could say I’m partial to peaches. You’d have to read to find out why he winks again and I have to laugh

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
When I met Ellie, I could tell you I noticed her smile first. But it was the curves all over her tiny body that made me take notice. Then when I saw she had freckles, I was done for.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Yes, I absolutely do.

What is one word best describes her?
That’s tough. Amazing, gorgeous, hard to narrow down. I’ll go with this one—MINE.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yes, it’s the final standalone. But, you may find out what Jack is up to next January.

Thank you Nick for chatting with me, looking forward to read Jack’s story. Say hello to sweet Ellie for me.

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

I hope you enjoyed the chat. Nick is so sweet and oh-so-yummy.

He hails from After You, the final interconnected standalone novel in the Second Chances Series by Stephanie Rose. Love the cover.

AfterYou-259x400_c.jpg

I had the happily ever after . . . until it was gone.
Three became two. And I was alone.
Our time—my time—was over. Alone was the right way to be. The only way. Life was me, my son, and my memories. Until the day I met someone who turned my lonely existence upside down.
This man made me smile, made me laugh, made me ache for his touch.
But I couldn’t.
He shouldn’t awaken feelings I resolved to bury with my husband. But he did.
I couldn’t let his presence make my heart race. I couldn’t let him into our little world, where he fit so perfectly. I couldn’t want Nick.
But I did.
***
I rescued people. My family relied on me to lend a hand. Everyone thought of me as the fixer, but no one had the first clue how to fix me. Until Ellie.
The freckled beauty’s sorrow was like a well-worn shirt—easy and familiar, difficult to part with—and she wore it comfortably. And though I was hers from the moment our eyes first met, she’d never be mine. I loved her in the here and now, but how did I compete with a ghost?
***
How can there ever be anyone After You?

PLEASE NOTE: After You is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by one of my fave voices, Tracy Marks. I have a crush on her voice LOL and the reason I found this wonderful book and author. Be prepared for tissues, you will need them. I think it is a must to read/listen. I will definitely check out the other ones.

AfterYou-cover-sm.jpg

My 5-star review

“a must listen”
Overall – 5 stars • Performance – 5 stars • Story – 5 stars

New author for me and I am so glad I found this story. My love affair with the story started in chapter 1, Jack’s last letter broke my heart … that kind of love is so rare *sigh* I wanted to hug Ellie, and she had such a good support system, well… except her Dad. Then Nick came along and he is all that a man should be and more. The chemistry is huge between Ellie and Nick, the few hot scenes are scorching. Their journey to HEA is quite eventful and found myself laughing, crying, mourning, getting angry right along with them. The ending is such a gift, a rare one at that, when we actually see Jack Jr. grown man, I cried again at the scene where Nick gives him the letter from Jack Sr. It has a perfect ending, it left me very satisfied. Thank you Ms. Rose for a great story, I am looking forward to more.
I chose this story because of Ms. Marks, she is one of my top fave narrators. Ms. Marks delivered in spades, I loved her voices before, but even more now. The various voices she gave the characters, the accents, the emotions clearly heard made this a great listening experience.

My Chat with Greg… and Natasza?

Hello and welcome!

I just had to bump today’s post for the hunk you are about to meet.

Please welcome Greg! …. and Natasza? What an awesome surprise!

Do you have a nickname?
Greg: My team name in the Canadian JTF2 is Bigfoot. JTF stands for Joint Task Force for those who don’t know. We’re smaller in numbers than the SEALs, but we operate the same way, land, sea and air.

What is one word best describes you?
Greg rubs the back of his neck and gives me a hungry look from below his bangs. Used to be manwhore. My team is a little on the hardass side. Now, I’d say loyal. Completely and utterly loyal to my wife, Mattie.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Greg: Until I met Mattie Bidault, not a helluva lot, but now I can’t help laughing when she gets pissed at me. She’s got the Irish temper and a tongue to match.

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Greg: Wow, I’d have to say the ocean. I joined the Navy over twenty years ago. Never tired of it. It used to mean freedom to me. Now that Mattie and I live in San Diego, it means home.

Favourite place to spend time in.
Greg chuckles. You really want me to answer that? For a long time I probably would have said the Dark Angel. It’s a special club in Victoria, but now I’d say just hangin’ out with my girl. Doesn’t really matter where.

Writing! What started it?
Greg: Guess that questions for Nat.
Natasza: Because of a friend of a friend who visited me one summer afternoon. This gal had escaped a life of absolute nightmares. Sold by her parents into prostitution, she finally escaped with a young man and came to Canada. She ended up on my patio and we talked about the things we hadn’t accomplished in life. When I mentioned I used to write. She looked at me with those big blue haunted eyes and asked, ‘Why don’t you now?’ I didn’t have a good answer. That night, I sat down at my computer and started to write again. That was 2010, and I haven’t stopped since.
I am so glad you did!

If you could choose another career what would it be?
Greg: I’m doing it now. I used to be a Canadian Warfare Specialist. Anti-terrorism, diplomatic missions, that kind of thing. Now, I work at NAB Coronado as a specialist teaching SEALs.

Audiobooks! Any plans to have any of your books in audio format?
Natasza: I looked into it, and I’d love to give it a try. It’s on my to-do list when I retire.
I would love to listen to Thane’s voice … or Mace’s *sigh*

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
Natasza: Always. For A Warrior’s Challenge series, especially. Each book in the series addresses the life of a Special Operator, either a SEAL or in Greg’s case JTF2. When you protect Uncle Sam or Canada, there’s a price to pay. Each book delves into those hot topics, aside from the ones between the bed sheets.

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your books?
Greg: I’ll take this one.
Nat shrugs.
Go for it.
Greg: I think Nat’s audience is anyone who wants a little truth in their novels as well as high impact suspense or action. She’s not bad at writing contemporary stories, but the tales she writes with a military twist gives her more room to dig into the emotional side of the characters. If readers like a book with depth and intensity, those are the folks who’ll like Nat’s work.
Nat chuckles. Well said.
I agree!

What is next in your writing?
Natasza: The next book out the door will be the last for A Warrior’s Challenge series, called Code Name: War of Stones. It’s gonna rock the boat…big time. After that, I’ve got a new series starting this fall. The next series is about a team of retired SEALs and has a strong paranormal twist to it. Looking forward to that and retirement from the Coast Guard this fall when I can write full time.
I am so looking forward to more.

Thank you Greg for coming for a chat! And Natasza ! You always manage to surprise me LOL keeps me on my toes 😉 Congrats on your new release!!!

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

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

Greg hails from the just released “Code Name: Redemption”, book 6 in “A Warrior’s Challenge” Series by Natasza Waters. I met him before in the previous books, but I am glad he got his own story, I wondered what happened to him. I started it last night and it it so good.

CodeNameRedemption-banner.jpg

Rugged. Mysterious. Dangerous.

Lieutenant Commander Greg LaPierre, a Special Forces Operator, returns home after a seven-month deployment. He wants to shake combat from his back, but only days after his arrival the police accuse him of murder.

Someone is slaughtering women and leaving them at historic locations in the emerald city of Victoria. Whispers of Whitechapel drape the cobblestone streets with fear. Mattie Bidault, a local journalist, has been following the case from the beginning, and Greg is either innocent or she’s falling for the deadliest serial killer since Jack the Ripper.

Hello and welcome!

Today’s chat is so exciting I can barely contain myself.

I give you not one, not two, but three book boyfriends that I met a little over a year ago while listening to the first audiobook in the series. It was instant love that grew as I listened to all the books after. Even though all three are on my book boyfriend list, and love them each for different reasons, Marco is my fave, he is such an irreverent flirt, but shhhh don’t tell on me …  I am waiting at their door to be let in … here they come 😉

S: I’m relaxed, in my jeans and t-shirt, waiting for Elaine to get home. We have a special treat for her.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
X: I think since it’s Elaine telling the story, we really can’t argue with how she sees us. But it’s hard to looking in the mirror regardless. So yes, I think she portrayed me accurately–the good, the bad and the ugly.
M: She tried, but there aren’t words to describe just how great my ass is.
S: For the most part, but since she only told the story from Elaine’s perspective, I would have loved for her to tell the story from mine, so that Elaine would know just how much she means to me.

GoodDoctor-banner.png

The three hunks hail from The Good Doctor trilogy and a short by Renea Mason. My love affair started last year in March when I visited Mary Menage‘s blog who was hosting the 2016 MENAGE SPRING TOUR and I won the first book in audio format and the rest is history. They are narrated by the award winning duo, Noah Michael Levine and Erin deWard. You have to listen to them A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! voices, the passion they add and the chemistry is incredible.

My reviews:
book 1, “Curing Doctor Vincent”, it won quite a few awards and after listening to it I agree.

“WOW WOW WOW”
Overall 5 stars – Performance 5 stars – Story 5 stars
If I could give a few more stars for the performance, I would. My first duo narration and OMG they delivered. Ms. Deward and Mr. Levine’s voices are amazing, the various accents, the emotions, the passion with which they delivered the story is spectacular, very realistic. I listened to some parts more than once.
This was my first book by Renea Mason and I have to say, I am hooked. Great story, kept me on my toes, I like that I can’t predict what comes next and that it evoked an wide array of emotions. I already purchased the next one in the series 😀

book 2, “Surviving Doctor Vincent”

“Even better”
Overall 5 stars – Performance 5 stars – Story 5 stars
I thought the first book in the series was really good, and it is, but this 2nd book is off the charts. As I listened to the story unfold I was amazed how it evolved and more secrets were revealed especially at the end WOW what a twist. Poor Elaine! Will she survive another revelation? I can’t wait to find out, and hopefully it will be in the next book.
The relationship between her and Xavier is combustive, adding Sebastian and Marco is even more so. All 3 add to the mix and she is one lucky woman. Fanned my face at the hot scenes. Again the duo narrating this book made this experience one that will stay with me for a while. The accents, the emotions, the powerful delivery is just amazing. It felt like I was there and experienced all the emotions, the pain, the laughter the characters felt and saw what they saw. Thank you!

book 3, “Loving Doctor Vincent”

“Intense”
Overall 5 stars – Performance 5 stars – Story 5 stars
I am sorry to see the journey end, I rather enjoyed tagging along Elaine and her men. This last book was quite intense with suspense mixed with hot erotic scenes , twists and truths revealed.
The narrators are amazing, so much passion, made the story almost real. Addictive for sure.

short story, “Tasting Paris”

“Delicious”
Overall 5 stars – Performance 5 stars – Story 5 stars
An hour of delicious and hot, this story is perfect for a quickie listen and get a fix of the sexy voices of this duo recounting how X, Marco, Sebastian rock Elaine’s world. Fan required 😉

My Chat with Elijah!

Hello and welcome!

Before we start I think I should warn you… ice water and an industrial fan is needed.

And now that you’ve been warned, let’s do this.

I met my next guest a few days ago and I still get shivers down my body… the good kind, no worries 😉

Please welcome Elijah!

Elijah.jpg

he saunters in and… DAYUM Natasza! I know you warned me but… double DAYUM

What is your full name?
Hey Eniko, thanks for having me on your blog. My name’s Elijah Griffon Bach. I’m a Special Warfare Operator with the Navy SEALs. Last year I received a new assignment as lieutenant of SEAL Team One, Alpha Squad. I had big shoes to fill after Captain Patrick Cobbs was killed in action.

Do you have a nickname?
Sure! All SEALs have a team name. It usually isn’t something cool like you hear in the movies, but instead from something stupid we did in training or on a mission. My BUD/S instructors gave me the name Picasso and it doesn’t have a damn thing to do with painting either.

What is one word that best describes you?
Yeah, well, I’ve heard through the grapevine my men call me a hard-ass. Maybe I am, but it’s because I want my team to come home from a mission the same way they left: walking on two legs with all their body parts. Although I shouldn’t admit this, I guess I might’ve had a bit of reputation as a man-whore with the single ladies in San Diego. Had my reasons… until recently.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I’m sitting here on your comfortable leather couch in work dress. Officers normally wear this when they’re on duty at the base, but when I’m off duty, I love my Levis and a comfortable Tee.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Elijah chuckles Yeah, suppose she did. I had a bad habit of only spending a few hot, sweaty hours with a girl when I was off duty. Natasza knows all my secrets. Probably realized it was time for me to get my shit together and why she set Cricket and I up on the mission in Hawaii.

What makes you laugh out loud?
My girlfriend, Cricket. She calls my bluff all the time. She also calls me an asshole when I deserve it, but for some reason it makes me laugh. Guess it’s because she’s caught me red-handed.

What is your favourite dessert?
Hmm, gonna have to be the same answer. My girl, Cricket. She’s my favorite after dinner desert any day of the week.

What is your favourite drink?
Beer. Not very suave, but I’m a down-to-earth kinda guy. Love BBQ’d hot dogs and hamburgers too.

What is your greatest fear?
Elijah’s naughty smile slips into meaningful thought In my line of work danger sits high on the totem pole. SEALs are trained to ignore their fear. Doesn’t mean we don’t have it, but I’m always concerned I’ll make the wrong decision on a mission, putting my team at risk. That can have devastating results.

What is your favourite colour?
the smile returns and he nods Have to say the color of my girl’s hair. I love threading my fingers through it.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
he laughs A SEAL is always prepared, and I’m always prepared. Not a damn thing.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Before, I would have said a few drinks and a few condoms. he laughs Now, if I’m not deployed on a mission, then Cricket and I spend our time at home. Dinner. A walk on the beach and then the rest of the night is “R” rated.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Sweet Jesus, woman, you want me to give away all my secrets. Not very ticklish.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Something Cricket wears. She won’t tell me what it is, but I know I’m home when I walk into that woman’s arms and I spend a lot of time investigating every inch of her to remind myself I made it back alive.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Her eyes. Definitely, her eyes.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
I do, but if your readers want to know who she is, they’ll have to play Natasza’s online game to find out how we met.

What is the one word that best describes her?
Real. Beautiful. Honest. Faithful. One word isn’t enough. SEALs are away on missions for most of the year. Takes a special kind of girl to love one of us.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
I’m not part of any book yet. Least Natasza hasn’t put me in one. My story was created for Nat’s readers to have a little fun. She’s got a big giveaway for the month of May. It’s kinda cool. The reader steps into the story and becomes a character.

What is the deal with this online game I keep hearing about?
You can check it out at the link below. Nat’s cooked up an online game for suspense lovers. You launch from her website once you sign-up for her newsletter. That’s how you’ll find out who wins the giveaways. The reader is the heroine of the story, and you run a mission with my team of SEALs. Anyone can play.

I did play it and I couldn’t stop, it was great imagining I was Cricket. Thank you so much Elijah for chatting with me and hope to see you again, in your own book.

You’ve read romantic suspense, but have you ever been part of one? Tighten your boot laces. Join the mission online. Meet the Navy SEALs from the award-winning series A Warrior’s Challenge. Open for the month of May!

I am a fast reader and it took me just over an hour to complete the missions in the game Elijah mentioned and let me tell you it was very entertaining, suspense mixed with some panty-melting hawtness, I am fanning my face just thinking about it. While searching for the passwords to get to the next levels, I got to learn a few interesting things related to the SEALs. I hope you will join in too.

If you are new to the series, although the books can be read as stand-alones, I recommend you start at the beginning to understand better how the world evolves and how characters get involved.

Kayla is intent on leaving her past north of the border. Hired as a Canadian liaison by the US Navy, she finds the Coronado SEALs tough but amiable. Their Commander is another matter. With eyes like blue steel and a body carved from it, Kayla resists the hungry attraction between them for good reason.

Navy SEAL Commander Thane Austen (Ghost) treats his women like his missions: in, out and gone. Returning from deployment to find Kayla is his new tactical specialist poses a challenge, one he’s never faced. When the defiant beauty with haunted eyes becomes a serial killer’s target, the Commander has the excuse he needs to close ranks around her.

My Chat with Leontide

Hello and welcome!

As usual when I invite one of M. A. Abraham’s hunks, they have to do their own thing, and forget about answering my questions. But… I AM NOT COMPLAINING 😉

Read on about my newest adventure…

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

I shut down my computer and again it is way after quitting time. It has been a hellish day and the rush requests haven’t quit all day. I want to go home, grab a bite and loose myself in a book, my usual escape from reality.

I rush to the exit, open the door, and step into the arms of a man that hadn’t been there only a moment ago. I swear it is true, he appeared out of nowhere. Oh yes, did I mention he has abs that were made in Heaven, with the white wings to match? I look up… and up … and up …. and I can’t contain my smile …

KYLLAN!!!!!!

I blush and stammer,So sorry, I didn’t see you there.

Kyllan chuckles, I know he has heard my thoughts and my blush deepens. I don’t know why I even try when I know they are sensitive to thought patterns.

Timing is sometimes everything, Kyllan replies.

Yes, it most definitely is, I respond, with a sheepish grin. I mean, what is a girl to do or say?

I have brought you a guest, if you don’t mind, Kyllan announced. The Siren Elder, Leontide. I believe you have heard of him.

Yes, I had, and yes, I am curious. As Kyllan moves aside, to allow me to see Leontide, I am expecting an elderly gentleman to appear before me. Hot damn. These aliens need to be labeled with warning signs: ‘Danger ladies, can cause overloading of Human circuits.’ I nearly break into a sweat.

You are Leontide? I stammer. I never stammer!

At your service, Leontide answered with a bow of greeting.

He thought that he would bring you a surprise, Kyllan chuckled.

As if this isn’t surprise enough, he has the physic of someone around twenty-five years old. How do they keep themselves in this kind of shape? I am both jealous, as well as running on hormone overload.

It is all the swimming and flying we need to do to live, which is something I thought you might enjoy. This is why I have come, as well as to meet you. Kyllan is always talking about you, and for him to be impressed by a Human, I thought you had to be something special.

They certainly weren’t in the back of the line when it came to handing out charm. I look at Leontide’s sparkling eyes, and I know there is more to this than he is telling me. All right, I will bite, and anything he offers actually. Where did that thought come from? He is also talking about swimming, and although it isn’t really the right time of the year, I am curious.

You needn’t worry about the temperature of your lakes, we know it is cold and will take precaution. I have brought someone to keep you warm and safe in the water. Leontide assures me.

Warm and safe in the water? There was ice in that water only a week ago, I exclaim.

You will find that is immaterial to us, Leontide informs me.

My thoughts were, ‘maybe immaterial to them, but I will freeze my bootie off.’

Allow me to introduce you to Sailon. He is one of our people, about your age. With your permission, he will show you the wonders of you oceans, or at least some of them. Leontide offered.

Sailon stepped out from behind Leontide and smiled. I could have cried. The temperature of the outside world also just spiked at fifty degrees Celsius. Yes, I could use a cold swim right about now, although the lake might not be cold enough. He is not only built like a surfer, but his blond sun kissed hair over a well-tanned face makes him look like a model for one. I am dying here, but I may go happily.

Sailon smiles, as he holds out his hand and purrs, I can’t think of an expression close enough to cover that sound, this will have to do. Name your pleasure.

I take a deep breath, clear my throat and bless the day I told my son he could have a sleepover at his friend’s. I am going to Heaven.

I will be near, if you need me, Leontide teased.

I am remembering Sten and Errisa, as I think, ‘Hopefully not too close.’ Then I answer him, I have always wanted to go to the South Sea Islands.

South-Sea-island-3.jpgsource

Our pleasure is making you happy, Kyllan will transport us, but we can’t be gone for long. Despite that, we will make sure your time with us will be pleasurable. Leontide assured me with a wink.

Ta-Ta people, we are off, see you when I return.

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

Well, what do you think?

When my chats are hijacked my adventures are always oh-so-satisfying, don’t you think?

Intercession-coverSM

That gorgeous hunk on the cover is The Tribunal Elder, KYLLAN sigh

You will meet the Siren Elder, Leontide in INTERCESSION, book 4 in the Tantalus series by M. A. Abraham, releasing on May 10, 2017. He is such a character, funny, with a mischievous streak that will have you laughing.

The Tribunal Elder has lived through more millenniums than he cares to think about. He is not the type to shirk his duties. He is a force to reckon with; yet he is known to be a kind man. To settle a dispute between the Martians and the Human, he will travel to Mars. Before he returns home, this problem will be settled, one way or another.

The message from the Martians is clear, remove the settlers from the surface of their planet, or they will die. The Tribunal Elder soon discovers there is more to this than those who are in command know about, for the act that precipitated this action had multiple events. Someone is working in the background, manipulating forces, to create a power struggle between the two species.

Will he allow the Tantalarians be pulled into a conflict that they have and want nothing to do with?

Read Chapter 1 here and find the pre-order links are here.

My review:
“This book brings a major twist in the series, that I didn’t expect. An exciting continuation of the series where we find out more about Tantalarian history, a conflict on Mars and a positive outcome for all involved. I recommend it with 5 stars.”

Tantalus-bookmarkPRINTTime to update this banner and soon 😉

If you are new to the series, although the books can be read as stand-alones, I recommend you start at the beginning to understand better how the world evolves and how characters get involved.

My Chat with Anton!

Hello and welcome!

Today I am bringing one of my book boyfriends over from the old blog because I can’t let him be forgotten. I was at Anton’s house for the chat, I am soooooo excited to share it with you again. He speaks my native tongue, Hungarian.

And there he is… 

oh my…. Rosanna!!! You should have warned me! Oh ya, you did warn me!
I can feel his powerful aura before I am even close to him, and those eyes are piercing, like he is looking right into my soul. I do not feel scared, ok… maybe a bit, but more like awed *sigh*

Isten hozzott Enikö!
(Welcome Enikö!)

I know I should not be staring, but I can’t stop. I try to respond, but no sound comes out, he hands me a glass of raspberry juice, I gulp it down … mmmm my favourite …

Thank you for accepting my invitation and answering my questions.
Have a seat, then we can start.
He smiles that gorgeous smile at me! I shuffle my notes, drop them a few times… Taking a deep breath…

What is your full name?
I am Anton Gaspar, Grand Prince of the Federation of Hungarian Tribes. No middle name. My father, Janos believed middle names were a waste of time.

Do you have a nickname?
he laughs heartily
Well, my mate Marci has a few for me, none of which she would appreciate me sharing, I’m afraid. Let’s just say she calls me “Tiger” a lot. When she wants to tease me, she will curtsey and call me, “My Liege.” And then I spank her.

What is one word best describes you?
his eyes flash in mischief
Focused.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Well, Enikö, because you have been rather naughty and visited me in my bedroom, I have nothing on.
I can certainly see that!!!
You’d better hide or Marci will see you. My little lynx is quite protective of my manhood.
I am not hiding! I am not here to threaten your manhood and I do know she is protective, I would be too, but you are the one with no clothes.
I smile wickedly

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I must admit, I didn’t appreciate the way Ms. Leo depicted me at the beginning. After all, she made me sound misogynistic. I don’t hate women. Quite the opposite. However, because Ms. Leo was telling a story, I shall forgive her this time. She can keep her head… for now.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Very little, I’m afraid. I have never really been one to laugh much, as you will gather if you’ve read my story. However, my Marci always manages to put a smile on my face. The thing I loved best when we were becoming acquainted was seeing how her lynx plagued her, forcing her to give into her desire for me. I did manage a few laughs over that. Once the kissing began, the laughs stopped.

What is your fave dessert?
Would it be wrong of me to say my mate? She is sweeter than any dessert. However, she makes a wicked little cookie called a “Whoopie Pie.” By all that is holy, they are delicious. I call them her “sex pies.”

whoopie_pie_004.jpg

source

Never heard of whoopie pies, they do look yummy.

What is your greatest fear?
I’ve already experienced it. I almost lost Marci. Hell could never compare.

What is your fave colour?
Marci’s eyes are a unique golden brown. I’ve never really thought about colors I like, but if I had to pick one, that would be it.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
he laughs
Come now, Eniko. I’m a hot-blooded shifter male. What do you think?

What is the perfect romantic date?
he raises eyebrow
A day in bed with Marci. If you’ve read my book, you know I have a lot of lost time to make up for.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I am not ticklish. But I am more than happy to offer tickles. I love that spot on a woman right on the curve of her waist.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
If I answer this question the way I want to answer it, you might need to censor me. Let’s just say my mate’s scent drives me wild, and it intensifies at certain moments. That is my favourite scent.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Intelligence shining in her eyes. A quick wit. Loyalty. Yes, a beautiful body and face are always attractive, but they mean nothing if the woman behind them is a only interested in superficial things.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
I’ve mentioned my mate Marci Lennox, now Gaspar. And she will be the last woman in my life.

What is one word that best describes her?
Sweetness. She is my kitten.

Can you tell us a bit about what the future holds for the readers of the series?
‘Predator’s Salvation’ is the last book in the series and was released March 20, 2017

I better shuffle out before Marci returns, just to be on the safe side.

Thank you again for answering my questions. I am sure the readers will be pleased.

Viszontlátásra!
(See you soon!)

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

Thank you for coming by and reading my chat with Anton, hope you enjoyed it. He is my book boyfriend from Predator’s Refuge, book 3 in the ‘Gemini Island Shifters’ series by Rosanna Leo.

3-predators-refuge-cover.jpg

A tiger shifter searching for a safe place to hide. A lynx shifter trying to prove herself. Neither expecting the desire that flares between them … nor the danger stalking them. Suspense and passion fill the pages of Predator’s Refuge, Book 3 of Rosanna Leo’s thrilling romance series, Gemini Island Shifters.

Lynx shifter Marci Lennox has worked at the shifter-friendly Ursa Fishing Lodge and Resort all her adult life. It’s more a home to her than a job. When her boss goes on vacation, putting her in charge, Marci is thrilled. Finally a chance to prove she has the mettle to run a resort.

Her confidence is shaken when new employee Anton Gaspar appears. One look at the mysterious tiger shifter spells trouble for Marci and for her sex-crazed lynx. Anton is judgmental, condescending, and a little misogynistic. Unfortunately, Marci’s lynx thinks his tiger is more delicious than an oversized bag of Maltesers.

It becomes difficult for Marci to remain neutral near Anton, especially when she learns of his troubling past and unusual family circumstances. However, when dangerous incidents occur on the resort, the lynx woman and tiger man join forces to combat the threat to the lodge and its guests.

Harder still is the quest to combat their explosive feelings for one another. As they explore their mutual passion, they realize the danger at the resort is more insidious than they ever envisioned. Their dreams, their love, and their very lives are at stake.

My review: “Another delicious story in the Gemini Island Shifters series, this is the story of Marcie and Anton. As with the other books, the author managed to pull me into the book from the first page, suspense, humour, steamy scenes and a HEA makes this a great read. Totally recommend it!”

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

Thank you for joining me, hope you enjoyed the chat.

Leona and Alec hail from The Bowie Bride, book 2 of The Mackintoshes and McLarens series by Suzan Tisdale, to be released April 18, 2017.

BowieBride-cover.jpg

Alec Bowie never wanted a wife. He never wanted a hearth and home. And he most assuredly never wanted to be chief of his clan. But much to his vexation, he finds himself in possession of all three.

His desire for peace and to protect his clan are stronger than his desire to remain free and untethered. He agrees to the marriage in the hopes his wife will bed him only long enough get with child then leave him the bloody hell alone.

Leona MacDowall — or Leona ‘Odd Eyes’, Leona the Witch, or Leona ‘The Devil’s Spawn’ depending on to whom you speak — is all too happy to volunteer to marry the Bowie Chief. Though the clan Bowie’s reputation as murderers and thieves precedes them, she believes life with Alec more palatable than living the rest of her life untouched, unmarried, and under the hateful rule of her spiteful father.

But nothing turns out the way they expect. Alec doesn’t know if he can keep to his original plan of leaving his wife alone after he gets her with child. Leona is beginning to suspect she might not get the happy home she’s always wanted. And worst of all, someone’s set on murdering Leona — and might just succeed before anyone’s dreams can come true.
