My Chat with Tucker

Hello and welcome!

Oh do I have a surprise for you today. My next guest is one of the modern warriors is so easy to fall love with.

As I couldn’t see Tucker in person, I asked Sharon to ask him my questions and send me his answers. I was surprised with an audio recording SQUEEEE

Happy listening 😉

Thank you Tucker for answering my questions and thank you Sharon for making this possible.

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

Well, what do you think? Did you enjoy the chat? How about the format? I think it was so much more enjoyable hearing my newest BBF answering my questions.

As he mentioned, Tucker hails from The Bone Frog Brotherhood series by Sharon Hamilton. Aren’t these covers yummy?

Older SEALs, silver-haired, but still prime time.

This series chronicles the relationship between Brandy and Tucker, who meet on New Years Eve, at a SEAL wedding. Tucker has been out of the teams for nearly ten years, but reluctantly attends this wedding. He misses his former teammates and the Brotherhood that they share. There he meets Brandy and their instant chemistry continues through all the books in this series, from their wedding, to their eventual new family and home remodel. Tucker remains one of the “Senior” members, one of the most respected “older guys” on SEAL Team 3, but he can still out press and sometimes outrun any of the younger ones.

The voice giving life to Tucker is one of my ‘eargasm’ narrators whom you probably saw me mention on my blog many times, the The Pirate Storyteller, JD Hart! THANK YOU!

He is the voice that brings all Sharon Hamilton‘s characters to life. I love it when he whispers in my ear 😀

My review: 5 stars
It is so good to be back in Ms. Hamilton’s SEAL world. This time with the older generation. It was great seeing all the characters I came to love in the other series make an appearance in Tucker’s story. And what a story it is. Spanning 5 novellas, the listener (or reader) is following along his journey to HEA, well deserved. He found Brandy when he least expected, just as she found him, that night changed both their lives. Their chemistry is felt throughout and I think intensified throughout the 5 books. I love how vivid the scenes are, being at home or on a mission and it touches so many issues military families deal with while on active duty and after.
Mr. Hart did an awesome job as usual, the various characters got their own voices accentuating their temperament, adding the emotional touch for each scene as needed. One of the best one so far.
Thank you Ms. Hamilton and Mr. Hart for the very enjoyable hours listening to Tucker and Brandy’s story. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

I hope you will give the series a try, available in ebook, print or audio, follow the link from Sharon Hamilton’s website. While there, check out the other series too, I am sure you will find your next BBF there too 😉

You can also check out all JD Hart’s work on his website. He creates the audio samples and the awesome book trailers too, see youtube.

Until next time, happy book reading / listening and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!

My Chat with J. D. Hart

Hello and welcome!

Today I have J. D. Hart, The Pirate Storyteller with me. He is “the voice” behind many books I love and has the ability to turn something great into awesome bringing something special to each book, bringing them to life with passion. The versatility of his voice amazes me every time, accents are perfectly rendered, the mood of the characters come across clearly, the various characters of different gender and nationalities are well defined. I love it when he whispers in my ear 😀

JD-PirateShip

Thanks for coming to my little corner of the blogging world, JD!

Do you have a nickname?
My full name is John David Hart. Years ago when I was an MCA recording artist I traveled with a band that had three Johns. It was a bit confusing when someone called out the name John. I decided that to simplify matters, I would just use my initials J.D. I am also lovingly referred to as the Pirate Storyteller.

What is one word best describes you?
Passionate
Perfect description I think.

What makes you laugh out loud?
A karaoke singer who doesn’t know he can’t sing on pitch.

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Burning wood. It reminds me of the wonderful crackling fires my Grandfather used to build in the living room when I was a kid. We would sit around the fireplace and play our guitars and sing.
Mine too! I loved sitting by the wood stove in my grandparents kitchen.

Favourite place to spend time in.
Riding my bicycle through the countryside, standing on the porch of a chalet in the mountains taking in the beauty of fall colors. Strolling along the beaches of St. Maarten and St. Thomas. Sometimes just being alone listening to the sound of silence, music or a good audio book.

Is there a genre that you refuse to read?
I really don’t care for Punk or Science Fiction.

JD-microphone

Audiobooks! What started them?
I began my career in radio at the age of 18. I would voice commercials and narrated a show entitled, “The Unexplained”. I fell in love with being in front of a microphone and creating art with my voice. Later, I became a recording artist and used my voice to sing.

I love your songs, my fave is “Meet Each Other Now”

and “Walk With Me”

Disenchanted with the lack of autonomy in the music industry, I auditioned and landed the role of a national TV spokesperson for Chevrolet. That afforded me the opportunity to not only be the on-camera talent but voice many of their radio and TV commercials as well.

I began getting some roles in films and there I had the opportunity to really work on my skills as an actor. Finally, one morning I woke up and proclaimed that all of that had been foreplay to what I really wanted to do, narrate audio books. I sent my demo reel to an agent and was handed three books to narrate that same day. My previous years as a VO talent, singer and then actor were, in my mind the perfect skill set for launching a career as an audio book storyteller.

Is there a genre that you would not narrate?
I have not come across a genre as of yet that I would refuse to narrate. I would probably least prefer political.

If you could choose another career what would it be?
There is nothing that I would rather do than breath life into an author’s story. But if I had to choose another career, it would be …. would be … it would be … hmmmmm I suppose a film director.

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
Yes, indeed! It is my job specifically to convey the author’s message and add the element of emotion where and when it is needed. It is my job to bring the characters to life and convey what is going on in their heads, according to my interpretation of what the author is trying to convey. That’s the beauty of it. I get to layer in another element, more depth to the author’s story.

Who is your intended audience and why should they listen to your audiobooks?
Having the good fortune of being selected by award winning New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sharon Hamilton to collaborate with her as her storyteller, I feel that my intended audience is for romance and paranormal romance. Sharon being the most gifted and talented writer of romance coupled with my being a hopeful romantic and the pirate storyteller is a wicked savvy combination. It is our intention and our desire to give our listeners something not only for the ear but for the heart as well. A listening experience that will draw them into the story and feel as if they are living and breathing it.

What is next in your narrating work?
“SEAL My Home” by Sharon Hamilton. Coming soon!
I can’t wait to hear it!

Thank you for sharing your voice with us and making books come to life!

My Chat with Joshua… my Dark Angel book boyfriend… sigh

Hello and welcome!

I usually like my book boyfriends on the side of good, but the one who I have today for the Chat is a bad boy, a Dark Angel! He is so yummy and you will see why I make an exception to my GOOD BOYS ONLY rule when you read his book.

So here I give you Joshua!

Josh 1

What is your full name?
My full name is Joshua Brandon. I was always this name. Has served me well throughout history.

Do you have a nickname?
Daniel used to call me Josh. Most my lovers have loved the longer name, Joshua. We dark angels love the Bible names, and take them on purpose. Except Felix, of course, but that’s another sad story.
Yes, his story is sad.

What is one word best describes you?
Unstoppable. I am relentless. I am a consumer of passion, lover of all fine things, especially fine women and good wine. I like things on the edge, thrilling, and unexpected.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Why, I’ve just taken a steam bath, so I’m draped in my red fluffy bath sheet, and nothing else, my dear. What did you have in mind?
I have many things in my mind…

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I’ve begged her to have a date with me like she did with Daniel, her hero in Heavenly Lover. Sharon, come out and play. I don’t bite (I’m not a vampire), and I too love to dance. And I can show you a good time, my lovely…
You are incorrigible LOL

What makes you laugh out loud?
Little things tickle me. Like when a Guardian is attracted to me. Or when a human woman thinks she can get away from me. I love it when I watch Audray become full of herself, take control of the dark side and become an Icon. She will do this, you know. It was predestined. There’s a whole lot more about her you’ll read about very soon in Underworld Queen.
I can’t wait to read and listen Underworld Queen. Quite a twist…

What is your favourite dessert?
I’m thinking Absinthe with a sugar cube.
I shudder Not my drink, but I used to serve it at the French restaurant I used to work at.

What is your favourite drink?
Flaming brandy.

brandy-over-candleNow we are talking. How about a glass now? Not flaming, but warmed up.

What is your greatest fear?
Paperwork. Organization. Rules I must follow.

What is your favourite colour?
Probably red, but I thought of black first.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing. Are you interested in proving this?
I laugh out loud You are shameless!

What is the perfect romantic date?
A little Italian wine, small waterfall, violin music (sad, gypsy music like they play in the streets of Prague), a beautiful woman who is a virgin to me. I love conquests, especially virgins.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I am ticklish along my waistline. Just a little quirk. If a woman takes an inch of my flesh and squeezes it there right above my hip, I giggle and quickly try to reposition her hand.
I sit there and try to imagine him giggling… nah… I can’t… should I try it?

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?

Chrysler1I love the smell of deep red roses. Chrysler Imperial is my favorite rose.
I like those too, my fave is Double Delight.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
I look at her aura. I inhale her scent and feel her passion, her fear. If she has deep fear, that excites me. Means she will have deep passion when it is set free. I listen to their thoughts, especially when they think I can’t understand them. When they question their erotic fantasies when they look at me. Love that the best.

I wonder if he can read my naughty thoughts. He looks at me and winks. I think I have my answer, my face burns…

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Melanie is in my life now. Melanie Worthington. But I fear she will leave me in Book 4.
Oh no! Really? But she loves you so much! What did you do?
I scowl at him and he shrugs

What is one word best describes her?
A delicate flower, and I claimed her before any other. I rescued her from death, a death that would have made her mine for all eternity. I ache for her and for the leaving I know she must do. She will grow. I will continue. That is the difference between us.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yes my book is Book 2 of the Guardians. Book 3 will be out sometime before the end of 2014, if Father leaves Sharon alone enough to get it done.

Thank you Joshua for agreeing to chat with me, and I am looking forward to seeing more of you in the next books.

Thank you. You’ve been lovely to look at and spend time with, Eniko. You must invite me over again and we’ll chat about other things coming up. I’ve left a picture for you.

I thought I am beyond blushing, but he proves me wrong… sigh… did you see his picture up above?

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

Hope you enjoyed the chat as much as I did!

UnderworldLover600x900

Joshua hails from “Underworld Lover“, book 2 in the Guardian Angel series by one of my fave authors, Sharon Hamilton.

Joshua Brandon, a legendary and powerful rogue dark angel, meets a human woman whose soul he cannot take, and finds something he has not experienced before: love. At the same time, a new director comes to power in the Underworld, who asks for a test of Josh’s loyalty by delivering this very woman to him.

Melanie Worthington is back among the living, after reeling from the suicide of a close friend. She has no idea she is to become the pawn between two powerful dark angels, one who would command her as his personal concubine, and the other who would set her free.

Will their love survive the battle between the two dark angels, or will Joshua risk his own immortal life to protect the woman he loves?

Check out the book trailer created by JD Hart and two audio excerpts from the audiobook narrated by The Pirate Storyteller, JD Hart ,

Also the book trailer JD created for the first book in the series, Heavenly Lover.

“Heavenly Lover” Trailer

I fell in love with Joshua while listening to the audiobook and I think the narrator’s voice had a lot to do with that. I call him THE CHAMELEON VOICE, with such a wide range of accents, voice pitches, moods, I think JD Hart is one of the best narrators I’ve heard so far. I even used his voice to help with the migraines that plague me quite often.
