Luce’s surprise visit – OH MY!

Hello and welcome!

Read on and find out about the surprise visit I got lat night.

Ah, a Thursday night to myself, I speak to myself, as I make plans to curl up on the couch and watch a movie munching on some chocolates left behind by MA and maybe some popcorn too..

I get close to my front door and I notice a man standing next to it. He is tall, around six foot two, with medium brown hair he keeps in a tiny ponytail at the back of his head. He sees me coming towards him and a hopeful look enters his eyes. I have a feeling I am going to like this, the heck with the movie. Then again, what is there not to like about him? He is dressed in leather from the top of his wide shoulders to his boots. We all know how I feel about men in leather, especially when it hugs their body like a lover and … OH MY!!! He is built to please!

Eni? The man enquires in a deep husky baritone that cause goosebumps over every inch of my body.

I stifle an appreciative sigh as I look into stormy blue eyes and answer, Can I do something for you?

I have something to show you, as well as a favor to ask, he begins.

I hate to do this, but a woman can’t be too sure of strangers waiting outside of her door, Who are you? And who sent you?

Well, he blushes, to be honest, I stole your records from MA’s computer files and hightailed it to your address. She is being unreasonable and I figured you might be able to help me reason with her.

Why should I? I decide to give this man a difficult time. You haven’t even told me your name yet, you just confessed to hacking into my friend’s computer, and I have never seen you before in my life. How do I know you aren’t hiding a weapon somewhere on you and waiting for me to let down my guard before you attack me or something.

My name is Luce and, I give you my word of honor as a Four Star General from the Hampton Planetoid that I am not a convict or pervert. I have only come with a small request, he insists.

The weapon? I ask pointedly.

Luce slowly turns, as he raises his hand into the air to show he isn’t hiding anything, Do you see any signs of a weapon?

I can’t help myself as my eyes head south and latch on to the curve of his behind. I have to admit, I don’t see signs of a weapon either. Perhaps, I should frisk him, then again, that would be a bad idea… for me.

It is then that I notice the tube he is carrying and wonder where that came from, What is in there?

It is what I came to show you, Luce admits.

Alright, I’ll bite, I comment, as I open the door, please come in and show me what you have.

Luce enters the room ahead of me and I softly sigh, I really like the view. He looks great in those leathers, especially from behind. Well, now you know… I like a well-defined tush on a man, so sue me 😛

As I hang up my coat, Luce opens the tube and unfurls a poster. I immediately gasp as I note it is a picture of one of MA’s upcoming releases and he is on it. I haven’t seen this before. I love it, but how did you get your hands on it?

I told you, I hacked into her computer, Luce doesn’t sound the least bit ashamed or repentant.

For this? Why? It is only a matter of time before she shows it off, she can’t keep  secrets when it comes to her books, I tell him.

She intended to keep this one a secret, even worse, she wasn’t going to release the book until 2020, and late in the year at that. I am not happy about having to wait that long for my bride. I want her now, Luce sounds fierce.

I can’t help you, I state. Cute tush or not.

Why not? Luce asks.

Her schedule is committed for the next year. There is nothing I can do to change that, I state.

How about next year? I am begging, Luce pleads. Teyla could change her mind and I can’t give her that chance.

Is she that fickle? I am tempted to believe she isn’t worth the effort you are going through for her, if that is the case, I reply.

She isn’t fickle, Luce defends his love.

That is so sweet. I give a sigh as his eyes plead his case. I can’t say no. Alright, I will talk her into it, but I want the poster.

It is yours, Luce all but pushes it at me, as he moves to give me a hug.

Wait! I quickly order him to stop, then I put the poster aside and hold out my arms. Now you can hug me. We will do a press release and she will have no choice but to fall in with our demands.

Luce gives me a hug and smile as he comments, I owe you, but for now, I better get back to my ship. I have a long way to go to get back.

I watch him leave and sigh, I really do love a man in leather.

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

I hope you enjoyed the visit too 😉 well… maybe not as much as I did, but …

Here’s the poster. Isn’t it gorgeous? Created by amazing Cora at Cora Graphics.

Equals-cover

Teyla Sherman is a military genius that has climbed the ranks quickly on the planetoid known as New York in a cluster that was seeded centuries before by Earthships. She is known for her tactical mind, as well as her beauty and, although she is often sent into areas of the cluster to plan out strategies, she will not like the mission she is about to be sent out on. She is to shadow an equally talented General to develop plans for an attack on his planet, should they be needed. To do this, she is ordered to use every asset she has to accomplish her goal.

Luce Renfrew is known as a ladies man, a handsome devil that attracts women like a magnet. He is used to getting what he wants and he wants Teyla. He is prepared to use every dirty trick in the book to get his way, especially when he discovers that the attraction is mutual.

General Roberts is Teyla’s commanding officer and he hates her with a passion that is not to be denied. He will do anything to destroy her, but up to this point, his efforts have only elevated her career. When he finds out she is in love with a General from another Planetoid, he declares war of a different kind. If he can’t win one way, he will another.

When Generals from opposing sides of the cluster fall in love and the stakes are high, what will it take for those around them to let them come together?

Equals is scheduled to release October 2020. I am editing the manuscript now and I have to tell you, I understand why Luce wants his story released to the world earlier than scheduled.

Here is a taste 😉

“You feel so right in my arms,” Luce groaned, as he wrapped his arms around Teyla to pull her closer. He then feathered her lips with his, coaxing them apart to receive his kiss.

Teyla’s reaction was spontaneous, as she stretched up towards Luce and parted her lips to meet his. Her body strained to get closer, even as her mind screamed no.

Do you think I should help him and convince Mary Ann to release ‘Equals’ earlier than the scheduled date? Let me know in the comments and could win a $5 Amazon GC. Sexy Mr. Random will let me know who the winner is on Monday, November 12, 2018.

Add it to your TBR list on Goodreads! Sign up to Ms. Abraham’s blog and follow her on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date.

Unexpected visit from Tantalus

Hello and welcome!

Earlier today… as I was writing in my journal … YES! don’t judge! I still write by hand on paper, in a notebook, not as much as I used to and my handwriting suffered for sure. That story is for another day though… ok… where was I? Ah yes! Sitting in my comfy chair, writing in my notebook …

Are you busy? A soft, melodious male voice flows through my mind.

I can tell whoever is contacting me hails from Tantalus, but I have never heard this voice before. I am curious to find out what kind of surprise awaits me.

I am never too busy for my friends. I respond.

I will be brining some special people with me, if you don’t mind. The voice returns.

The more the merrier. You do realize I will be asking questions when you do. I tease.

I can hear the smile in his voice as he responds, We would be surprised if you don’t. You may be even more surprised with some of our answers. There are many changes happening on Tantalus and, although we can’t fill you in on all of the details, we can leave hints about what some of them are. The voice teases me back.

I can feel whoever contacted me leave my consciousness and I shout, You can’t tell me something like that and then leave me in limbo, get back here.

There is no response. NONE! As I pace the room, I swear I can feel my blood pressure rise and I want to hit someone. How dare he leave me hanging like this? You wonder why I hate cliffhangers so much? This is a prime example.

When I think I am about to blow a gasket, I hear a soft rap on my door. He is here, I can feel him, and boy have I got a few words to say to him.

I open my mouth with the intention of speaking my mind as I fling open the door, and then freeze. DAYUM!!!

Hello Eniko, I am Kyran.

I am Kystan, and it looks like Trysuil was right about you.

Trysuil? Right? Okay, so I sound brain dead, but DAYUM …. great mounds of Angel flesh!!! They are Kyllan’s sons, I can tell they are, they look like a younger version of him. Somehow, I find my misplaced wits and ask. What is Trysuil right about?

Your reaction to our presence. He sent us to fly you up to the ship. Would you like us to hold you in our arms? Or, would you rather ride on the platform?

I can’t help but grin or stop the words that flow unchecked from my mouth, nothing new there, right? Your arms are for me. M.A. would have chosen the platform. She is such a scaredy cat 😛

Who would you like to fly you?

Do I get to choose? I ask. Perhaps I could be the one in the middle, I think I would like that.

Interesting byplay on words, considering what you are thinking. Kyran snickers.

So bite me, right here, I don’t even think as I motion towards the spot I am thinking of with my hand. I am not even aware of the fact that I have spoken aloud, or that I am already blurting out the rest of my thoughts, Can I lick you, to see if you are real or if I am dreaming?

I thought that phrase was pinch me, to see if I am dreaming, Kystan wrinkles a brow as he considers the matter.

It is and I am willing if you are. I answer with a grin. All right, so I am flirting outrageously, but I can’t seem to stop myself.

Within moments Kystan whisks me into his arms and we are off to… who cares where… I am clinging tightly to his shoulders OH MY!!! I hope it will take long. A small opening appears ahead of us and we land inside their ship where Trysuil is waiting to greet me.

Welcome to Tantalus, Eniko.

Damn, he is hot. I allow my thoughts to flow through my mind and watch as he smiles slowly enough to make my blood heat up. He spreads his wings wide, so flames can ripple freely amongst them. I watch and give an excited squeal of delight. I can’t believe the Adjudicator has come to see me. Where is Alena, his lucky mate? I wonder if the Tantalarian Females realize how good they have it. They not only have men that are handsome enough to make a gal drool, but they are treated like precious dolls. I want one for my own.

Can I go back to Tantalus with you? I ask.

Trysuil shakes his head as he answers, You have important work to do here, but we have heard so much about you from Kyllan that we felt we should come see you for ourselves. We also have brought someone to show you, although this part of the story has yet to be told, as is Kystan and Kyran’s.

So far I am not complaining about a thing, I reply.

I would introduce you to my mate, Alena, Trysuil speaks, as he turns slightly to wind a wing around someone approaching him. There is so much love and pride in his face as he speaks that I can’t talk past the lump that forms in my throat. This is how love should be between two people!

Alena is covered by one of Trysuil’s wings as she comes forward. He unfurls it and I can see she is holding a small bundle in her arms. She is also glowing with happiness in a way that makes me glad I am wearing sunglasses. She is so beautiful. Are there Tantalarians that are not drop dead gorgeous?

We wanted you to be the first human to see our son, Alena’s voice is light and airy, and she unwraps the child from its little blanket.

My eyes grow wide, then misty as I see the perfectly formed little cherub being revealed. I reach for the baby and then stop. It is not my place to take a child from its mother. Besides, Trysuil might object and then he would fry my hide. Not a good thing.

Alena smiles wider and moves close, so she can place the baby into my arms. I feel tears running down my cheeks as I touch his soft skin and downy feathers. He smiles at me and I coo at him.

His name is Tyrell, Alena speaks while she watches her son with a tender expression. He is our miracle.

He certainly is that, as are all children, I agree, as he begins to fuss.

Alena is immediately there to reach out and hug her child to settle him. It is everything I can do to give him back to her, babies are so precious.

I look at Trysuil and ask, So what can we expect in the future?

Much! comes the answer Our world is coming into its own now and those that were hidden are almost ready to come back out into the world and out of their sanctuary. First, we must come to this world, so we can help those in need here.

When will we get to know more about the future? I want this information now, not in a couple of years from now.

Patience, Eniko. One story at a time, you have a much better idea now what to expect from us later, when People of the Phoenix releases. Until then, we will work to sever our ties with this planet.

Does that mean I will never see you again? I worry.

I give you my word, I will not forsake you, Trysuil promises wrapping his wing around his family.

I heave a great sigh as I watch him leave the room. I am already beginning to feel abandoned.

Kyran and Kystan wrap their wings around me and I am nearly smothered in wings and the heavenly scent of male Tantalarian bodies. I grin as I realize I forgot to even check to see what they were wearing. And here I am, sandwiched between Kyllan’s sons. I have to admit, I definitely don’t feel alone at this moment.

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

That was bliss even though it was fleeting encounter and I didn’t get to ask many questions. We got glimpses of the distant future that I even didn’t know about, how cool is that? It was disconcerting at the beginning hearing the voices in my mind, but I like it! I would want that power too.

You get to meet Trysuil in The Phoenixes Choice, book 5 in the Tantalus series by M.A. Abraham.

The Phoenixes Choice-cover

Kyllan has come home to find several surprises waiting for him, one in the form of a man he had thought dead. Trysuil is most definitely not lost to their people, and he couldn’t be happier. His daughter, Alena, is ecstatic, for her love has been returned to her.

The Phoenixes saved Trysuil from what would have been a certain death, for he had more potential than anyone could have imagined. They kept him in a state of suspended animation, until the time was right, with the knowledge that their world was about to go through many changes in the future. In his new position of power, he will be known as the Adjudicator. He only answers to the Phoenixes; he is their judge and jury.

Those who have gotten to know Kyllan respect and admire him as a good leader of uncanny foresight and abilities. As they get to know Trysuil, they find out that he is fair, just and a man of vision. He will not abuse his position. He would rather help those who have come to live on Tantalus build a future for the generations that are to follow, but he can bring down the might of the Phoenixes to bear on them, if there is a need.

Awesome news from Tantalus!

Hello and welcome!

Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were merry.

I had a relaxing week off and put quite a dent in my TBR pile, especially the audiobook one.

Now onto the awesome news from Tantalus!

I am having a great time listening to an audiobook in progress as it is finished chapter by chapter. The book is First Contact, book 1 in the Tantalus series by M.A. Abraham.

FCaudioCover

Twenty ships have left the gravitational field of the Earth with the intention of colonizing Mars. Each is independent of the other and set to become domed cities upon landing. The mission is simple: go forth to develop the new planet, make it an extension of our home. Well, it sounded simple.

No one expected life on Mars to be easy, they are pioneers and that is a type of life that comes with dangers. What they didn’t expect was for the settings of one of the ships to be off enough to miss their landing, to miss the very planet they were meant to settle.

Even more astounding was to find another planet within a three-week travel period that lies in the shadow of the red planet. It is where they will land, where their ship will unfold to become a domed city. Where life is dangerous in a hostile land and they find unexpected help. The indigenous winged people of the planet don’t live on the surface of the planet, they live in cities in the clouds, but they are willing to extend a welcoming hand to those who have come to their land, as well as teach them what they can to survive. Their relationship begins with three words.

“Welcome to Tantalus.”

I AM SO EXCITED and I can’t wait for you all to hear it when it releases soon, I do not have an exact date, but you can bet I will share it when the date is set.

The talented Brian Callanan is the one narrating it, he chatted with me back in October. If you missed it, you can find it here. It is such a pleasure working with Brian, he has an uncanny ability to capture the many characters’ temperaments and quirks and the progress is swift. I am hoping he will be narrating the whole series. I love his various voices, male and female, young or old, the colourful nuances, the way I can hear the emotions behind the words.

I will have a trailer for First Contact audiobook to share soon. Until then you can check out his voice on Audible or ACX.

Beyond the Myth – Release Day

Hello and welcome!

Today is the release of “Beyond the Myth” by M. A. Abraham. Congrats on the new release, Ms. Abraham! Love the cover done by Cora Graphics.

Darlene and Derek Stanton are top-notch archaeologists, born and raised in the field. They are sought out for their expertise, along with the prestige they bring to each job they do, which is why they were hired to check out a myth that led to a buried city.

Darlene hides her vulnerabilities behind a wall of ice, where she feels safe from the rest of the world. Her twin, Derek, on the other hand, is quite the opposite, adventurous and easygoing. What they find in the buried city, and experience soon after, sends her into a state of shock.

Ripped from her home planet, forced into a relationship, and lifestyle that is totally alien to everything she knows, Darlene fights to regain some form of stability in her life. Derek doesn’t have the same problem, as he settles into their new lifestyles without a problem. It doesn’t help when the handsome man who now owns her is so charismatic that she can barely keep her hands off of him. How is she to face the reality of the life she has found, beyond the myth?

Atl is the eldest son of the leader on a space ship. He wants nothing more than to marry his childhood sweetheart, until he meets Darlene. She is beautiful, spirited, and nearly more than he can handle. Will he be able to connect with her heart or will he lose her forever?

Read Chapter 1 here.

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.

hell-pic1.jpg
source

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.

My Chat with Adam…. yum yum

Hello and welcome!

Today my guest is the King of the underwater realm.

Adam from favimages.net
website

He walks in, very imposing and regal … I am thinking I should bow or curtsy … or faint … sigh

Good morning your highness! Thank you for being here today.
Greetings to you!

He bows his head slightly and hands me a small white box…

pearl

GASP…
A pearl!!! How did you know they are my favourite?
I didn’t! I think every woman should have at least one.
I agree!!!

My heart is ready to climb out my throat is beating so erratically and I am sure my blush is showing too… fanning my face

Chaise-lounge-chairs-inspired-by-tie-by-Velichko-Velikov-1

Lets sit here in these funky chairs …
before I fall and embarrass myself

Thank you! he looks amused but sits down

What is your full name?
Adam.  There is only one who bears that name where I come from. In the underwater kingdom I am king but we do not lean heavily on formality, ours is not a large population.  Everyone knows who I am and that I am there for them.

Do you have a nickname?
I am sure my mate will eventually give me one, but for now everyone just calls me Adam…
he smiles and winks

What is one word best describes you?
Powerful
I’ll say…

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I am on dry land at the moment, so I am wearing a dark grey suit I had made for me in Italy.  The shirt is white with a hint of blue.  The cuffs of the shirt is held together with a set of 25 ct. blue diamond cufflinks. The loafers are black.  Underwear? clears throat and smiles  I like being comfortable and presentable.

Well then…. What do you wear in the  water?
In the water I wear enough to be discrete… he winks Love the feel of water against my skin.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Maybe even too close for comfort, I don’t often get carried away like I did in the story.  That is bad for a ruler.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Many things.  I have a good sense of humour, when I am not watching over a brat who can’t make up her mind what she wants.

What is your favourite dessert?
When I am on the surface I like cherry torte.  When I am at home I like Franape, which is a kind of custard made from ocean plants, served with a light wine sauce.

What is your greatest fear?
That my world will be discovered by those above the sea and is will cause a war between our cultures.  The Earth would suffer greatly.

What is your favourite colour?
I like bright colours.  The gardens of the ocean are filled with brilliant hues of blues and reds.  I think I like them the most.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Depends on the circumstances.
He grins!

What is the perfect romantic date?
I like to take my partner out for a meal, we would then swim for a while to settle things while we enjoy the peace and colours of my realm. After we would go back to my home for some relaxation and enjoy the pleasure of each other’s company.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Unfortunately I am a little sensitive in several spots… no, no checking things out… Let’s just say some things are best left for times of exploration.
he smiles that devilish smile of his

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I love the smell of sea flowers.  You wouldn’t know about that because your nose isn’t attuned to them like ours are.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Every woman has a different sense of movement about her.  I love to watch a woman in motion, watch her glide and flow through the air.  It is even more attractive in the water.  Each move is like poetry, and none more so than those of a woman.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Yes, finally.  Her name is Mystery.

What is one word best describes her?
Elusive

Can you tell us a bit about what the future holds for you?
This is a stand alone book.  There are a few who wanted to know more about what my underwater world is like but I am leery of taking others into the Capital Domain.  Those who came into my city would not want to return to their world and their metabolism would never adjust to the pressures exerted on them by the ocean.  In my world we live in peace and harmony and we are content to leave it that way.
I am one of those who wanted to know more 😀 but I do understand and respect your desire for secrecy

Thank you again for the chat! And for the beautiful pearl!
You are most welcome!
Standing up, he bows and kisses my hand. I sit there speechless, not many men do that anymore, I feel my face is flushed. I lean over and I watch him going out the door. He is so tall…. and that yummy tush! mmmm
You are one lucky woman, Mystery!
