My Chat with Susan Hayes!

Hello and welcome!

My today’s guest is an author I’ve been following for a few years now. Her books are out of this world awesome.


Please welcome Susan Hayes!

Do you have a nickname?
My parents usually call me Snooper. A childhood nickname because I carried a Snoopy stuffy with me for years.

What makes you laugh out loud?
British comedies.

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
The ocean. I’ve lived on an island for most of my life. Every time I leave the ocean, I miss the smell. To me, that’s the scent of home.

Favourite place to spend time in.
My home. I’m a homebody at heart.

Is there a genre that you refuse to read?
I don’t read anything to do with True Crime. I spent ten years reading and processing police files as a career. True Crime just doesn’t appeal to me because of that.

Writing! What started it?
I’ve always been a writer. Even as a kid, I loved writing my own stories. I didn’t find the courage to try and get published until much later in life. My little brother died suddenly, and I was realized that life is too short not to take chances.


Audiobooks! What started them?
The day ACX ,Audible’s creation side, opened their doors to Canadian writers, I was in! I love audiobooks.

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
I write romances with strong heroines from diverse backgrounds because I believe every woman deserves her Happily Ever After.

Who is your intended audience, and why should they read your books?
My intended audience is anyone who loves Sci-Fi and Paranormal Romance with a hint of humour and a whole lot of sizzle.

What is next in your writing?
I am working on the next trilogy of stories for my Star-Crossed Alien Mail Order Bride series. They’ll be releasing this fall.

Thank you Susan for spending time with me. I am a big fan and looking forward to listen to more of your stories.


Hope you enjoyed my chat with Ms. Hayes.


Susan lives on Vancouver Island, off the Canadian west coast where the waters are patrolled by orcas, and the sighting of snowflakes leads to citywide panic. She’s jumped out of perfectly good airplanes on purpose and accidentally swum with sharks on the Great Barrier Reef.

If the world ends, she plans to survive as the spunky, comedic sidekick to the heroes of the new world, because she’s too short and out of shape to make it on her own for long.

As I mentioned, her books are out of this world, my love affair with them started a few years ago when I picked up the first audiobook in The Drift series, Double Down. The heroines are spunky and heroes dreamy alpha creatures.

and I have almost worked my way thru Intergalactic Dating Agency series.

Tieran Wilder is the voice giving them life and it is addictive. She has that warm voice that draws the listener in. I like that I can hear the emotions and moods behind the words and each character is distinctive.

I had the pleasure of meeting Susan a few times at RTC Ottawa, she is fun and a delight to be around.

You can check out her books on the website, so many to choose from: SCIENCE FICTION ROMANCE, PARANORMAL ROMANCE, CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE.

Follow on FB, Twitter and Instagram.

Also check out the 5-part posts on ACX’s blog sharing her journey into the audiobook world from a Canadian author’s perspective, informative and detailed.

My Chat with Zander

Hello and welcome!

My guest today is quite a character. I have been watching him for a while and so glad to have him here to chat for a bit.

Please welcome Zander!

What is your full name?
I have been known by a couple of names. In the heavens, I am Ruadan, the God of mystery. On Earth, I am just simply Zander Paine.

Do you have a nickname?
A nickname is an endearing name we give to someone who is close to us. It is usually a name associated with a trait, either for their personalities or physical appearance, that reminds us of them. I have stayed away from people most of my life so I’ve never been given one of those endearing names.
It is true, as a biker, I have a road name, Zee. This I gave to myself, and it is used to hide who I am. That is the nature of the criminal world. However, recently, I have let myself become a part of a community. I am with my own kind and a part of the Queen’s personal protection team. I have found lost family and discovered my soulmate, and in opening myself and my heart, I have been given many new names. Some are for who I am, brother, lover, even beast. Some are in the another language, while others are given to get under my skin. And, in all honesty, I love each and every one of them. Especially, the ones mo àilleacht likes to call me, like ollphèist olc meaning bad monster and cowboy.
Those Celtic words sound so delicious on his lips … sigh

What is one word that best describes you?
You can say that again, your story held quite a few surprises.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Unless I’m in my corporate office in Toronto, which is rare, I always wear a version of these jeans, t-shirt, boots and leather jacket, like I have on now.
Oh I do like what I see… a lot 

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
At first, I was surprised she even wanted to write about me at all, but Ms. Maguire did something no one else has ever tried to do. She got me to come out of the shadows and reconnect with my kind. In doing so, I have discovered so much and I am truly thankful to her for that. So, yes, I believe she represented me well.
I am glad she convinced you, I’ve been waiting for your story for a while now.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Any of the sarcastic comments that come out of Paige’s mouth. She has one hell of a sharp tongue, but some of the things she says are seriously belly busting.

What is your favourite dessert?
Silly question, my sweet Pea.

What is your favourite drink?
Beer and bourbon, of course.

What is your greatest fear?
Funny, I never had fears until recently. I mean, I have already died once and been to the burning pits in the Underworld so what is there to fear after that. But now…Now I fear for the safety of our Queen, she is always been challenged. I worry for my sister, my mother, my brothers, but I especially fear that something will happen to my mate, and the first female Alpha, Paige. It keeps me up at night, in fact.

What is your favourite colour?
Does it have to be one? I actually like a mixture of orange, gold, and red…The color of fire.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
People wear clothing when they sleep? How uncomfortable!

What is the perfect romantic date?
A burger and beer in Paige’s kitchen, just us sharing our time together.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I’m not ticklish in human form. However, if you swear not to tell Paige, I’ll let you in on a secret. he leans in and whispers… In my true form, that of my beast, if someone was to, say, pet my neck backwards, raising my scales, I’m super ticklish.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I love the smell of nature with a slight hint of horse. It’s the natural essence of my beauty and it drives me wild.
Horse? It took me a moment to understand what he meant, then I remembered Paige has horses DUH

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Mmm, her confidence. There is nothing sexier.

Do you have somebody in your life now?

What is one word best describes her?
That she is! 😀

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yes, my book is the fourth in the series. What does the future hold? Well, no one knows what Ms. Maguire is thinking and I doubt any of us could even try to figure her out. However, I can tell you she holds all of our secrets and our kind are the biggest myth of all… It’s bound to get darker, wilder, and crazier from here!

I know what you mean, Ms. Maguire likes to tease and she does it mercilessly 😀 Thank you for the visit to my little corner of the blogging world and looking forward to seeing more of you in the future.


Thank you for joining us today and I hope you enjoyed our chat.

Zander hails from Blessed, book 4 of The Legacy Series by Marianne Maguire.

Secrets, lies, and betrayals are in everyone’s past. They write our histories and define our world. Zander Paine knows this more than most thanks to a second chance September Rae’s Mother blessed him with centuries ago. Zander considers this blessing a curse that left him not quite a supernatural, and not at all who he once was. Alone, he wandered in the shadows spreading the false history of the supernatural- until Queen September is finally born.

After a chance meeting with the Queen, Zander is sent on a mission to Nevada with the High Priestesses to kill a warlock who has been siphoning magical powers. He’s there to prove himself worthy, but a lost family connect has him reliving his past as he tries to help the beautiful she-wolf, Paige Sky, escape her step-father’s claim. When the Queen’s court comes to his aid to help him rescue Paige, the rest of the supernatural community decides to challenge the Queen and her court for their Kingdom.

Zander is determined to show his loyalty, to right the wrongs of his shattered past, and finally atone for his sins, but the odds are not in his favor. When the truth about his mysterious past is finally revealed and the battle begins, will the Queen, her court, and the only woman he’s ever loved, turn their back on him or will he win it all and be truly blessed?

Check out this awesome trailer

my review: 5 stars

It took a while to get thru the book and not because it wasn’t good. It is really good, I mean REALLY good. I was savoring it slowly like a good chocolate that melts when it hits the tongue. I knew when I met Zander in the previous stories that he was special and after reading his story I know the author did him justice. He also got a special mate in Paige, she is a kickass heroine. Their encounters are explosive, in and out of bed. Make sure you have a fan handy 🙂 The saga continues and from the beginning there is the usual grip that brings the reader in and holds prisoner to the last page. When is the next book coming, Ms. Maguire? Need more.

The series is a unique take on the paranormal erotica genre mixing vampire, wolf shifter, demon, angel, human and adding suspense, laughter and lots of hot, sexy scenes.

If you missed my chats with characters from previous books, makes sure you check them out to get an insight into their world. First up was Sabre and then September’s hunks, followed by Lilith, my fave BGF from the series.

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.

To keep in touch with Ms. Maguire, give her pages a like. You should like her page on Facebook, she posts sexy shoes and oh-so-yummy-drool-worthy Wet Wednesdays sigh among other sexy posts. Ms. Maguire’s Pinterest is a place worth checking out, make sure you have your drool rag handy though! See Zander’s pic there too. Her website is a wealth of information on the books and the characters, check out the Genealogical Map, so cool! We chatted back in 2015 and I had the chance to meet her in person, she is such an amazing lady.

One lucky reader will get an ebook copy of “BLESSED”, courtesy of Ms. Maguire. The winner will be chosen by Sexy Mr. Random from the comments after 3pm EST on Monday, December 10, 2018. Good luck!

My Chat with Gedeon, Duncan & Xiu

Hello and welcome!

Do I have a treat for you today!!! Read on to see what happened, make sure you have the arctic fan at full blast. You’ve been warned 😉


I try to scream, but I can’t, there’s no air in my lungs. One moment everything is black, in the next moment I need to close my eyelids at the bright light. I’m dizzy, my knees buckle. Thank God strong arms are holding me tight.

Are you alright Ms. Eniko?

I open one eye. I’m right in front of a bulky chest. I’m tempted to find out if those pecs are as hard as they seem. I let my forehead fall against them. God! They’re even harder!

Uhmm… Ms. Eniko? Another male voice asks.

I blink. Where was I? I look around. I’m in a clearing, before a cozy cabin. Oh God! I’m in the dream-world! I’m in a real dream-world!

Well, not exactly. You’re just dreaming that you’re here with us.

I turn my head around, to find Ged smiling at me. Damn! That guy is gorgeous!

If you’ve recovered, we can go inside. There’s coffee and tea waiting for you.

And Ged has made cookies and pancakes! Duncan comes out with a smile. You’ll love them, Ms. Eniko.

The sexy shifter wears a white t-shirt that shows all his muscles. Gulp. I want my own dream-world full of sexy werewolves, vampires and dream-walkers! I can only nod.

Uhmm… Ms. Eniko, you can let go of Xiu now. Ged’s eyes are twinkling.

Do I have to? Uhmm, yes. Sigh. I suppose that it is time to let go and chat instead.



What is your full name?

Duncan: My full name is Duncan—

Xiu interrupts  I’m sorry Ms. Eniko, but we have enemies. We can’t give you our full names. the hot Native American interrupts Duncan frowning at him.

If glares could kill…

Ged: Xiu, is right Ms. Eniko, we need to protect our privacy. Is it okay for you if we give you only our first name? My name is Gedeon.

Of course, I didn’t even think of the danger, sorry!

Ged takes my hand with a smile. His lips barely brush my skin, but his eyes… Wow! If angel’s exist then they look like him for sure.

Xiu bends his head in my direction: Xiucatle.

Duncan: I’ve already said my name. Duncan.

Temperatures rise when Duncan winks at me with a charming grin. I knew I should have brought a fan to this interview!

Do you have a nickname?

Ged: Everybody calls me Ged, he’s Xiu… Ged points with his chin at the Native American. And we call him sometimes Shadow… And the pup at my side is just ‘Pup’.

Gedeon bends to the side so fast that I can discern only a blur. It seems that Duncan’s fist just failed to reach his cheek. Duncan growls and Gedeon bats his lashes innocently at me. This is going to be interesting.

What is one word best describes you?

Duncan: Alpha.

I hear someone chortle. Xiu? I can’t say for sure, he keeps a straight face when I turn to him.

Ged is rubbing his chin as if he wasn’t sure what to say Patient? Strategyst? Too complicated for one word? he chuckles.

Duncan: If you had asked me, I’d have said that Ged is sophisticated, but thinking about it… yes, he’s definitely complicated—at least for a man.

Silence. Everyone looks at Xiu, who is fidgeting in his seat. Their gazes cross. Xiu’s is full of pain. I know about his past as a slave, but all that pain makes me want to know more about him. Duncan’s smile has disappeared, he has his fist clenched now and all his muscles are taut. Ged shakes his head almost imperceptibly. I’m getting the feeling that they’re having a conversation without me.

Xiu, finally, he raises his chin… Warrior!

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.

Duncan: A white T-shirt and jeans.

Xiu: Black cargo pants, black T-shirt, and black combat boots.

Ged: I wear a dark, slim fit suit in stretch wool from Armani; a white shirt; a light blue tie from Hermes; and black, handmade Italian shoes.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

Ged: Basically yes. Ms. Xireau understands how different we are from each other.

Duncan: I’d have liked if she had shown more of our background and our daily life, but I understand that there was a word limit.

Ged: Some women have shown a special interest for Xiu, but the Ms. Xireau would have to write a whole book just to tell his story.

Ged winks at Xiu. Xiu is frowning, but his blushed cheeks betray him.

What makes you laugh out loud?

Duncan: I suppose that the same things that make other people laugh. I don’t know.

Duncan looks at his mates. What makes you laugh out loud?

Ged and Xiu are staring at Duncan as a lopsided grin appears on their faces.

Duncan: F*** you! He shows them his middle finger.

Ged and Xiu laugh out loud. No words are needed, I catch the idea and I chuckle.

What is your favourite dessert?

Xiu: Pancakes!

Ged: My tastes are… very singular, you don’t want to talk about them, Ms. Eniko.

Duncan: I love almost everything Ged cooks, and of course… whatever my mates have to offer.

There is a twinkle of mischief in Duncan’s eyes. Again… No comment!

What is your favourite drink?

Xiu: Water.

Duncan: German beer.

Ged: Let’s say that I never say no to a glass of good, red…wine.

What is your greatest fear?

Duncan: To see myself in a situation where I’m not able to protect my mates and specially Sarah and our unborn daughter.

Ged smiles at me The same as yours.

Has he just read my mind? Duncan’s answer made me recall my son and my need to protect him. Is Ged talking about a son? His son?

Ged: Sons, daughters, mates… They’re all our loved ones and, usually, also the reasons for our greatest fears.

He’s doing it! He’s reading my mind!

Ged: Sorry Ms. Eniko, I can’t prevent it. You’re a bit nervous and that makes you think loudly.

Xiu: A good warrior never lets others know his real fears.

What is your favourite colour?

Duncan: Blue.

Ged: Bright red for drinks, blue for everything else.

Xiu: Green, it represents the equilibrium between the head and the heart.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?

Duncan grins Are you sure you want to know?

Xiu: Only my dagger.

Ged: When I go to sleep I wear pajama trousers.

Duncan turns to him frowning I’ve never seen you go to bed in a pajama.

Ged rolls his eyes I’ve said when I go to sleep. If you’re in the room I know I’m not going to sleep.

What is the perfect romantic date?

Duncan: Whatever, as long as Sarah ends in my arms. And no, this time I’m not talking about sex.

Ged: The perfect romantic date changes with time. We change, our relationship changes and circumstances change. The perfect romantic date is when you adapt to the moment and the person you love.

Xiu: The perfect romantic date? When you look at your mate and know that she’s aware of how much you love her and that she’s happy spending that moment with you.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?

Duncan: Not much.

Xiu and Ged stare at Duncan.

Duncan: Okay, I’m a bit ticklish.

Xiu and Ged keep staring at Duncan.

Duncan: Okay, okay, I’m very ticklish! I’m ticklish everywhere, but nobody needed to know it!

Duncan keeps muttering something under his breath.

Ged: It depends on how relaxed I am.

Xiu frowns I don’t know.

Duncan: You don’t know if you’re ticklish? Who doesn’t know if he’s ticklish?

Xiu: I don’t know!

Duncan: Great! We’ve got plans for you Shadow, and Sarah will love them!

Xiu: Don’t dare to even think about it!

Duncan: Oh, it has nothing to do with thinking, I promise! he chuckles

Xiu: Duncan!

Duncan: Xiu?

Ged: Stop! Both of you! We don’t want Ms. Eniko to get a wrong impression about us, do we?

Duncan: Of course not! I’m sorry Ms. Eniko, Xiu is a bit grumpy but —

Ged: Duncan!

Xiu growls at Duncan.

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

Xiu: My mates. Home, peace.

Duncan: My mates. Their smell reminds me of sex and love.

Ged: My mates scent. It reminds me that I’m alive and that live is wonderful.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?

Xiu: The only woman I look at is Sarah. I love her smile, the way she frowns when she doesn’t understand something, the way she moves… Everything in Sarah catches my interest.

Duncan:  Curves. I like women with curves. A generous cleavage, hips to hold on when I get lost in them… But to be honest, since I’ve mated with Sarah the only curves able to catch my interest are hers, and Sarah is so much more than just curves. She’s smart, sassy, strong…

Ged: Physically? Seeing the back of a woman has always raised my interest. There’s a special kink in observing a nude woman from behind. Just tracing a woman’s neck with my gaze, going down following the line of her spine, and reaching the generous curve of her bottom, is one of the most fascinating and arousing sights for me. If we’re talking in general, nevertheless, then a woman’s intelligence, her sense of humor and her compassion toward others takes precedence over any physical aspect.


Do you have somebody in your life now?

All 3 respond in unison SARAH!

What is one word best describes her?

Duncan: She’s a Dream!

Ged: Life!

Xiu: Hope!

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?

Ged: Yes. There will be a series, each book can be read as a standalone though.

Xiu: Sarah wants to turn our dream-world into a safe place for those who are in danger in the real world.  We’re already helping Samgar. His female mate is in danger, and his male mate is condemned to die if he can’t find a place where he can let loose his true nature.

I still don’t like that f****** dragon-shifter near Sara. He’s f****** out of control! Duncan mutters with a low dangerous voice

Ged: Ms. Eniko, soon it will be time for you to go back to your world, but we’ve thought you’d enjoy a short picnic at the cascades. The three blood moons are impressive when they shine over the lake.

Oh that is wonderful! Are you sure I have to go back? I am ok with staying here for a while longer.

Ged smiles as he whispers A little while longer.

And that is the last  thing I remember.


I hope you enjoyed the chat as much as I did. It was quite different, no? Dream travel!


The three hunks hail from “Three Kings for Sarah” by Noa Xireau.

Three powerful warriors are called on to play the Three Kings for a dying Spanish girl. Shapeshifter Duncan must work with his ex-lover Gedeon, the vampire who once betrayed him. When the mysterious dream-walker Xiu comes out of the shadows, all of them know they are being manipulated.

Instead of a girl, they find a woman who is dying, protecting the Earth from an otherworldly creature. Trapped in Sarah’s dream world without powers, the three men will have to convince her to return with them—by any means necessary.

Gedeon, Xiu and Duncan will need more than just battle skills to work out their issues before Epiphany and not all of them are aware that Sarah is not the only one who’s being seduced…

Inside Scoop: An intense adrenaline rush can make you fight or…well, yes, just that! Be prepared to stumble over two alpha males blowing off steam in a very hot way.

Reader Advisory: This story has graphic sexual language and scenes—no closed bedroom doors (or other rooms) here!

An adult paranormal romance from Ellora’s Cave

My review:

First book I read from this author and I am impressed with the imaginative and unique story. I loved the way Ms. Xireau matched a vampire, a shape-shifter, a dream-walker, made them work in a menage without interfering with their traits. All 3 heroes are book boyfriend material, so I will not choose, I’ll take them as a package 😀 lucky Sarah, they fell in love with her. The story develops and grows as it unfolds… suspense, passion, laughter, self-discovery ending in a unique HEA.


To keep in touch with Ms. Xireau and check out all her yummy books, follow the links below and if you chat with her, tell her I said hi😀 I hope you will give her books a chance, they are sizzling. Her motto is “Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere” 😀

My Chat with Trinity, Arawn and Kane

Hello and welcome!

The guests I have today are out of this world. Read on!


Welcome! Welcome! Thank you for coming to chat with us today.

Tell us, how did you three meet?

ARAWN: Well, that’s an interesting story. he snickers The big guy and I, motions to Kane were signed up for more training on the island with Rekkus. We had just arrived and were getting debriefed about our schedule and accommodations, and BAM, this incredible lady came crashing into our lives.

Crashing? I ask with curiosity

TRINITY giggles Yeah, you had to be there, but it was definitely not one of my most graceful moments. But it was-uh… her cheeks flush bright red … memorable!

KANE: Sadly, I wasn’t in the line of fire, this big lug got all the excitement! grumbles as he flashes a slighted grin

TRINITY: Hey! slaps Kane’s thigh don’t forget the Elysian Fields, you had your own crash landing there, twice! Not to mention, our little game on the floor that one night with the three of us…

KANE clears his throat and nods. Kane untucks his t-shirt and pulls it over his zipper as he shifts in his seat. Good times, beautiful… grins, then shakes his head Uh, what were we talking about? stares wide-eyed at me

I chuckle You three seem pretty close. Tell us a little about yourselves?

TRINITY: Well, I was having a tough time, and the Rowan siblings made a generous offer to host me for a week on the island. You see, I’m grief therapist, and a Banshee, with a twist. I had recently suffered a loss of family, and my heritage turned out to be a bit of a surprise for me. I was going through a rough time and they offered to help me through it.


TRINITY: Well, for starters, they gave me a pair of enchanted glasses.

What for?

TRINITY: I see auras, and I was getting a little overwhelmed, the glasses were able to mute some of the stimuli to give me a break.

Did they work?

TRINITY: For a short time, but other issues arose quickly.

What else did the Rowans’ do to help you?

Trinity holds both Kane and Arawn’s hands. More than I can put into words at the moment.

ARAWN: Trinity was being targeted, the Rowan’s assigned us to keep her safe, and offered some different therapies on the island to help her out.

That sounds terrifying, why was she being targeted?

TRINITY: It’s really a great deal to get into in such a short interview. Let’s just say, I learned a lot about myself that week.

Interesting. How about you, Arawn?

ARAWN: Me? he scraped his chin with his fingertips and deliberates I’m on the Para Elite Forces with Kane here. We’ve been best friends for as long as I can remember.

KANE: I owe Arawn my life, instead, he settled for the brother he never had. Kane winks at Arawn. We joined the Para Elite Forces together, because protecting the innocent is the most important thing in the world to us.

ARAWN: And in the Underworld. he grimaces and rubs his chest

Underworld? Are you Arawn of Annwn, the Immortal?

ARAWN: Yeah, that’s me. I abdicated my claim to the throne, and since then, we’ve been fighting the good fight. Turned out to be the best decision of our lives, because it brought us face to face with this incredible woman. he lifts Trinity’s hand to his lips and kisses the inside of her wrist with affection

KANE: You make an excellent point, old friend. Kane does the same with her other hand

And, Kane, are you Immortal, as well?

KANE: I’m uh…a shifter. Can we skip this question please? presses his lips tight and flexes his jaw muscles

Of course, moving on. I smile I see hints of some impressive ink hiding behind that collar, Arawn. Care to give us a peek at your tattoos?

ARWAN:  I—uh… he tucks his chin down and shakes his head

KANE utters a soft growl

Two for two, I appear to be making you both uncomfortable with some of my questions. Apologies, gentlemen.

TRINITY: Don’t stress about it hunny. Arawn doesn’t like to take his shirt off. pats his knee and flashes a tender smile And Kane is a little shy. He’s still cautious about people seeing both sides of who he is. So selective reveals are few and far between.

I understand. Does that mean you have you seen their tattoos?

TRINITY: Oh, yes, up close and personal. I will tell you, both of them have exquisite canvasses of inked eye candy, and it’s more than just show, it’s meaningful.

Lucky girl. I pout

TRINITY: I most certainly am.

What really pushes your buttons?

KANE: Now that’s a loaded question! he steels his back and lets out a low grown For me, I’d have to say, evil actions against innocents. I can’t stand the smell of evil. The sight of malicious beings enrages me, it makes me lose control—I don’t want to get into it. he folds his arms across his chest

TRINITY: It’s okay, everything is fine now. gently caresses his shoulder

ARAWN: I second that. Malevolent beings with a sense of entitlement to harm anyone they wish in order to achieve their own goals of power and acquisition. Those who prey on what they perceive to be weakness, when in fact, they work so hard to cover up their own inferiority.

TRINITY pauses as she ponders the question Pretty thought-provoking question. I’d have to say, those who torture innocent children that have nothing to do with the problem at hand. And family secrets that haunt generations to come.

Sounds like you all need to relax a bit. Any ideas on how to go about that?


TRINITY cups her hand over her mouth to stifle a giggle A nice warm dip, for sure.

ARAWN: Don’t you mean skinny—

TRINITY: Be quiet! she slaps his arm in protest

KANE squirms in his seat Are we finished yet? I feel the need for a swim now, thanks a lot!

What is your biggest fear?

TRINITY: My biggest fear is the uprising against the Syndicate. There are a great many paras on their radar, and after what I’ve seen and experienced…

ARAWN: Never again, Princess, you have our word.

KANE: Agreed, with every last drop of blood that courses through our veins, you will be kept safe from harm.

TRINITY: That’s one thing, I’m absolutely sure of. she says as she leans over to her right side and kisses Kane on the cheek, then to the left and does the same to Arawn.

Thank you all, for dropping by to talk with us today. Sounds like the Wiccan Haus has even more successful healing to be credited for.


Thank you for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed the chat as much as I did.


Today’s guests hail from “Claiming Trinity”, by Kali Willows, book 14 in the Wiccan Haus series:

Tears of blood…

Trinity is the last of her bloodline and cursed with a bizarre ability for a Banshee. Living a mundane façade, she became a psychologist who helps her clients work through their own grief—or at least she did until her life took a sinister twist. Soon after the murder of her uncle, her traumatic past comes back to haunt her. She’s faced with a few other challenges she can’t control, along with her empathic talents. An unexpected offer of help comes from the Rowan siblings when she receives a ticket to the Wiccan Haus for a much needed retreat, along with some sizzling adventure she doesn’t bank on. The evil that stalks her has bigger plans than anyone on the island realizes.

Two heroes with a dark past…

Arawn, an Immortal, rose up against his namesake and abdicated his throne to the Underworld. Conflicted between his lineage of war and vengeance and his desire to protect those in need, he serves on the Para Elite Forces. Kane, a tortured soul with a profound fear of showing anyone his Gargoyle form, is forever indebted to his best friend. They attend the Wiccan Haus for additional security training, but an unexpected run in with a voluptuous white-haired beauty brings about a change of assignment—and sleeping quarters. How will they maintain the safety and well-being of this mystifying woman from looming threats, while battling their deep-seated desire for her?

Welcome back to the Wiccan Haus. Where the staff have some unusual quirks and the herbal tea is sometimes more than you bargain for. The proprietors always do their best to make the resort a place of healing and peace. It’s also a place some never want to leave!


With a deep breath and her Wiccan Haus charm in hand, Trinity folded her completed checklist for items to pack and shoved it into her pocket. She clutched the handle of her suitcase and mustered the courage to step into the portal.
In a flash, lights swirled around her, the sensation of gravity dissipated, her body lightened, and her limbs lingered in the air. She floated up, twisted, and spun on the spot. A faint, but deep voice echoed in the distance, “Incoming.”
In the blink of an eye, she bounced through the end of the portal, crashing into three large, burly men and toppling over a dark-haired stranger.
“Whoa!” He stopped their rolling together and landed on his back. Heated hands gripped her sides as she came to rest on top of his rock solid-chest, face to face. He chuckled. “You okay, princess?”
The sweetness of his warm breath brushed her lips and tingles of electricity ran over her sides where his hands held her steady. A delectable aroma of amber and patchouli wafted past her nose. Trinity leaned closer to his neck and inhaled then jerked. Lost in the depths of his dark eyes and chiseled features. His stare penetrated her and his touch stirred something deep inside. “I’m…oh, my….” She bit her lip.
“Are you hurt?” He frowned.
“No.” She rested her palms on his hard chest. But I don’t think I would notice if I was. My word, you’re handsome. A warmth curled around her spine, followed by giddy tickles in her tummy. Her body responded to the contact and lulled her other senses. In the next instant, she snapped out of her lustful daze with dread. “I’m so sorry,” she sucked in a sharp inhale and eased herself to sit up.
His hands settled on her hips. “I’m not.”
Trinity slammed her eyes shut, her cheeks burned with embarrassment at the sudden realization she now straddled the stranger she had just tackled to the ground. “By the gods, please tell me this did not just happen.” She slung her leg over to kneel on the floor and scrambled to get up. Another set of heated hands gripped her under the arms and lifted her to her feet.
“You landed pretty hard, are you sure you didn’t get hurt?” A second hunk straightened her glasses and brushed her shoulder off.
“I had a cushion to break my fall,” she simpered. Trinity smoothed back her hair to find the tight bun she had slicked her mane into had loosened and stray strands of hair littered her vision. She brushed away the rogue locks, and her breath hitched as her focus landed on another delectable vision.

I had a chance to read the ARC and they are oh so yummy. Their story starts with a crash, as Arawn mentioned, and it speeds up from there with suspense, humour, a few ‘oh my’ moments and some ‘oh yum! I want to be her’ moments too. LOVED IT! I loved them both, but I think Kane is my fave of the two hunks, but I wouldn’t mind switching places with Trinity… at all 😉
