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!
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.
Well? Did you enjoyed the chat? I know I did 😉
I am a big fan of Ms. Waters books and I hope you will give them a chance.
As he mentioned, Elijah hails from the game which anyone can play! For more details go to Natasza Waters‘s website and sign up to the newsletter to get the password to start the game.
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.
You should check out the other stories too, the stand-alones.
