My Chat with Hell :D

Hello and welcome!

One day late, but I am happy to share this chat with one of the most interesting female characters to date.

You heard of her on my blog as part of a Release Day Blitz back in January. I was really impressed with her after reading part 1.

Please welcome Hell!

What is your full name?
Helen, after Helen of Troy

Do you have a nickname?
Yes. Peyton calls me Hell. It’s supposed to be a joke. I think.

What one word best describes you?
One word? Adaptive. I was designed to adapt to whatever conditions surround me. I’m not sure that my creators thought that through fully, but it has it pros and cons, like anyone else’s skills do.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Well, I’m wearing a shirt. My favourite shirt. It’s the first thing Peyton ever gave me when he woke me from stasis. It’s too big and maybe not the sort of thing girls wear around the Dome where I live, but I love it. It always reminds me of him.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
That’s hard to say. There hasn’t ever been an android like me before. Part machine, part living being. At least, I don’t think there has. So I don’t know how accurate she could be. But I do know that I’m very happy she gave me a hero like Peyton Chase to tell my story with. He’s grumpy and swears too much and drinks whisky. But all of that is because he cares so deeply for the people around him, it hurts him that he can’t always protect the ones he loves. And he’s lost so much, so many friends and family. But he treats me with so much kindness. He doesn’t let his pain stop him from doing what is right. He’s given me shelter when I had nowhere else to go, even though I’m the last thing he ever wanted complicating his life. Even if I wasn’t chemically bonded with him, I know I would love him. Who wouldn’t want to be in a book with a man like that as their lover and friend?

What makes you laugh out loud?
Henry. He used to be just a regular service robot that would help with maintenance around the Dome. But now I’ve reprogrammed him to observe and react to the world around him too. And the joy he has over having joints that move without squeaking… it makes me giggle whenever he twirls his arms around saying, “No squeaks!”
I just wish Peyton was happier with the change too, though. I know I didn’t ask his permission to fix the robot and give him upgrades, but really…I was doing everyone a favour.

What is your favourite dessert?
Anything I don’t have to try to make. You know…food isn’t really my thing. Can we talk about something else?

What is your favourite drink?
I don’t really have a preference.

What is your greatest fear?
After everything I’ve been through in my short life, you’d think it would be pain. But it’s not. Pain I can handle. I can adapt to it if I need to. But being restrained. Trapped, with no escape. That is my greatest fear. And I’m not too excited about complete darkness either.

What is your favourite colour?
Peyton’s warm brown eyes.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing. Though I do prefer Peyton.

What is the perfect romantic date?
A date? I don’t know. I’ve never been on a date. I tried to make a romantic breakfast once… but you don’t want to hear about that. Well, I guess it doesn’t really matter what we do as long as I’m with Peyton and that tension he always carries around gets lost in pleasure instead. That is what makes me happy. Being with him and knowing I’ve made a difference in his life.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I’m not ticklish. Unless Peyton wanted me to be. Then I would become ticklish. I can turn things like that on and off to best please my master. My programming matrix was based on that of a, um, pleasure robot, you see. And it’s served me well as a base for my main function of being highly adaptive.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Peyton. His spicy-scented cleansers and male pheromones were the first things I smelled when he woke me from stasis. It will remind me of him forever and be the scent I crave the most.

When you look at a man what catches your interest?
Well, I’m programmed to find whoever my master is attractive. Luckily, Peyton has a caring and protective personality behind his grumpy exterior. He also has six-pack abs and a strong, muscular body, which is something I’m not going to complain about, heh. When he looks at me and I know he’s interested, even if he’s fighting it, he makes me feel all tingly and hot inside.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
I have Peyton. He’s my current master. I can’t remember too much of my life before we met as my memories were damaged when my creators at The Factory tried to erase them. But whatever the situation was before, he’s my master now.

What one word best describes him?
Grumpy? Snarly? Protective? Sexy as sin? There isn’t one word that can describe him. He’s a complicated man.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yes it is. My story is a long one, so it is being released in parts, one part each month. The first part is out right now. Part 2 released on February 10th, which was yesterday!

There are 4 parts so far, but there may be more.

I’m not quite sure what the future holds for Peyton and I, but I’m nervous. I don’t really remember anything about my past, but the people who created me are looking for me. I ran away, you see… straight into Peyton’s arms, and although he’s planning on fighting for me, to keep me safe, I don’t want to see him get caught in the crossfire. I’m scared to go back to The Factory, but what if that’s the only place I can find out the answers to the questions I have burning inside? Why was I made? And why did my makers try to kill me? And what is this voice I keep hearing inside that’s so familiar? I can almost remember when it speaks to me…

He was the best of men. The only man…

…the only man who ever made me feel truly safe. Remember that. If nothing else, I want you to remember him…

Thank you Hell for chatting with me and I am so looking forward to reading what is next in your exciting journey to hopefully HEA.

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

I hope you enjoyed the chat as much as I did.

When Part 1 released, it was as “Peyton’s Doll” in the The New Earth Series, by Felicity Kates.

Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 10.15.15 AM.png

It got a new name, a new cover which hopefully it will not take long to change over permanently at all e-stores.

TADA!!!! A New Earth Series‘ new look, the new name is “Project Hell”. I loved the previous covers, but I think the new ones are reflecting the story really well.

Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 10.17.05 AM.png

The covers were created by Lucian Bane and I think he did an awesome job. He is a new author for me, I will have to check out the books, I did a little stalking on his website, looks yummy. Thanks a lot Kate!!! My TBR pile is groaning LOL

I hope you will give the series a chance, Part 1 got some awesome reviews…

Here is my 5-star review:

“A great start to this new series. I read it in almost one sitting, fell asleep with the iPad on my face… now I can say I drooled over Peyton’s LOL

A short story that has the unique signature of Ms. Kates, building the base of the new world that will be the series. Quite an interesting premise and being a fan of the scifi genre, the concept picked my interest, add the mix or suspense, danger, intrigue, erotica and romance… I want more and can’t wait for Part 2.”

Congrats Ms. Kates on the release of Part 2!!!! YAY

Still not what the doctor ordered.

Things heat up in part 2 when Peyton has his hands full…of Hell. Despite his misgivings, their chemistry cannot be denied. He’s driven to protect and help her, but is there a place for her in his life? If it’s not enough that the revelations of her past at The Factory threaten to break their tenuous relationship apart. Between the appearances of Peyton’s meddling Aunt Joanna, a truly horrible breakfast, a chance encounter with an ex-lover, and the crack of a whip on his ass, Peyton may not survive to see what life with Hell has in store for him next.

This book is part 2 of a series. It is not a standalone story.

~Synopsis~

She isn’t what the doctor ordered, but she’s just what he needs

1000 years after Earth has been devastated by a viral plague, the few survivors turn to genetic engineering and advanced robotics to ensure the future of the human race. But
not everyone is happy with artificial life living amongst humans, least of all Peyton Chase, a doctor with a harrowing past. When he’s ‘gifted’ with a state-of-the-art companion that he can’t send back, Peyton is far from pleased. She’s sentient. She’s sexy. She’s everything he doesn’t want complicating his life. He nicknames her Hell. She nicknames him lots of unladylike things, at least in her mind. Because there are rules to a relationship like theirs. Master and Slave. She’s supposed to obey him in all things. But if that’s true, why can’t she stop meddling in his life? Unfortunately, time is running out for Hell. Her own desperate past is about to catch up to her with deadly results.
 ~Excerpt~
“You saved my life when it would’ve been easier to let me die,” said
Hell. An incredible realization, especially considering killing her had been
the thought most on Peyton’s mind when he’d initiated the scan. “Why?”
The warmth of his arm pulled away, but his comforting scent lingered. He picked up a nearby cloth and busied himself with wiping down the scanning array’s control panel. “I swore an oath once, to help those in need regardless of personal opinion.”
“But you don’t practice regularly anymore. Doesn’t that relieve you of clinical obligation?”
A flush spread from the deep ‘V’ of his tunic and up his neck. His gaze snapped to hers, hot and hard. “Would you rather have died?”
“No.” Ignoring the numb tingle in her limbs, she twisted so her feet hung off the scanner bed and touched the icy floor. “I’m grateful for your help. But I don’t want to be an obligation. I’ve caused you enough trouble already.” Chest suddenly tight, she sucked in a breath. “Is there someone else here that I can stay with?”
“You want to stay with someone else?” He tossed the cloth down on the scanning bed, his lips a thin line.
“No, but I figured it’s what you wanted.”
“What I want—” he snapped, then stopped. He turned away from her, his body rigid as he thrust his fingers through his dark hair. His face was set in hard lines when he turned back to her. “What I want is to keep you safe. You’re the most important thing that’s ever happened to humanity, and those bastards—” He stopped again, as if whatever the bastards in question had done was too difficult for him to say. He shook his head and tried again. “I got a call from Markus Willbright from The Factory, just before you woke up. They’re looking for you, Hell.”
Willbright. Willbright. “Wait…” She clutched her temples as she slid off the scanner and stood. “I remember him!” She glanced at Peyton and caught his grim nod. But the excitement, whisking through her at the fact she could actually remember something, quickly faded. Why did that name make her feel uncomfortable? She had a vague impression of a quiet man of mixed Asian ancestry who’d come to see her in her glass-walled room. He’d only ever looked at her and tapped on his tablet, recording whatever it was that scientists recorded, then disappeared again behind closed doors. But Peyton obviously hated him by the anger flaring in his eyes.
“What did you tell him?”
“I lied. I told him I’d never heard of a Bio-roid before, let alone seen
one, and said I was quite happy with my new Factory-made sex doll, thank you very much.”
He’d lied to protect her? She sat back down on the scanner with a thump. “Did he believe you?”
“Probably not.” Peyton’s attention was fixed on retrieving a data cube from the scanner array, the handsome planes of his face set hard. Clearly all of this was a burden to him that he’d rather not carry.
“Wouldn’t it have been easier to have just told him the truth and sent me back?”
The flush deepened across his cheeks, giving his tired expression a
fevered cast. “No.”
“Why?”
“Because of this.” He held up the translucent blue data cube for her to see before closing his fingers over it again. “I managed to piece together some of the fragmented engrams rupturing your hippocampus.”
“And?” she prompted after it became apparent he wasn’t going to say anything further.
“And, like I told you before, you’re never going back to The Factory
again.”
The New Earth series continues in February 2016!
Peyton’s Doll—Part Two
PeytonsDoll-p2-cover.jpg

Peyton has his hands full in part two… and Hell likes it. A lot. Mostly. Especially when he’s holding her. But is there a place for her in his life? If it’s not enough that the revelations of her past at The Factory threaten to break their relationship apart.  Between the appearance of Peyton’s meddling Aunt Joanna, a truly horrible breakfast, a chance encounter with an ex-lover, and the crack of a whip on his ass, Peyton may not survive to see what life with Hell has in store for him next.
