My Chat with Ben

Hello and welcome!

Today I have a yummy hunk from the Texas desert sent by one of my fave authors team, T.C. Archer.

What is your full name?
Ben Hunter

Do you have a nickname?

What is one word best describes you?

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Button fly jeans, crisp, white cotton shirt, Stetson, cowboy boots and, of course, I wear my Texas Ranger badge pinned over my left breast.
and I ready to swoon… double checking I don’t have drool on my chin… button fly jeans and cowboy boots YUM

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Evan and Tarah did a great job. We became good friends.
They are sure a great team.

What makes you laugh out loud?
When Liz tries telling me she’s too old for me.

What is your favourite dessert?
Pecan pie

What is your favourite drink?
Cold beer

What is your greatest fear?
That I won’t be able to stop Texas’ most infamous human traffics dealer from killing the woman I love.

What is your favourite colour?


The bright yellow of the poppies that grow in the El Paso desert.
They are lovely!

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
El Paso is hot country, honey. What do you think I wear?
Just the way I like them 😉

What is the perfect romantic date?
A ride in the desert outside my father’s ranch in El Paso.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Yes, ma’am. Though I won’t own up to just where I’m ticklish.
I would mind finding out for myself 😀

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Fresh biscuits. They remind me of early Sunday mornings as a child when my grandmother would get up early to prepare Sunday breakfast for the family.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Her smile.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
I do, though she’s giving me a hard time. Liz Monahan. I’ve never known a woman like her.

What is one word best describes her?
Smart—too smart. That’s more than one word, I know. But she is just too damned smart.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yes. Abducted is the first in the Texas Rangers: Special Ops series. This book features my team, the Reconnaissance team—Recon Rangers. I believe they’re writing the story about a friend of my, Ranger Jared Townsend. I think you’ll like him.

I am looking forward to reading his story too. Thank you for the chat Ben! Thank you Tarah and Evan!


Hope you enjoyed the chat with yummy Ben. I sure did 😉


As Ben mentioned, his book, Abducted, is the first in the Texas Rangers: Special Ops series by an amazing duo who make up T.C. Archer, Evan Trevane and Shawn M. Casey (aka Tarah Scott), where science fiction and horror collide… and a little suspense now and then, too.

She came for the fashion show. He came to catch a killer.
The El Paso fashion gala was slated to be the hottest event of the year and a must do if Liz Monahan, the creative brains behind Nina Bruce Designs, was to vault the company to the big time. Circumstances put Liz at the party in one of her own creations, escorted by a young, handsome model hired to show her off to the well-known and well-established. But Liz didn’t count on her date being an undercover Texas Ranger who is investigating a human trafficking ring. She also didn’t count on being kidnapped and trafficked herself.
When Texas Ranger Ben Hunter slips away from Liz Monahan at the gala and begins his investigation, he couldn’t be more surprised to arrive in Juarez, Mexico to find her held captive by infamous human trafficker Carlos Sanchez. In order to save her, Ben must commit murder. Hers.

My Chat with Tarah Scott

Hello and welcome!

Today I have an author who I like very much as an author and as a person. She is kind and fun to be around. Aaaaaand… I have quite a few book boyfriends among her books, I had a few join me for a chat, check out the archives.


Please welcome Tarah Scott.


Winner of the 2013 IRC Readers Choice Award for best of the year with “My Highland Love“.

Also won the Golden Rose Best Historical of 2011 with “Lord Keeper”.

Grab a coffee and read on.

Do you have a nickname?
ROFL Thankfully, no! I have two author names (and a real life name). Anymore names, and I might truly become schizophrenic.
You are too funny Tarah!

What is one word best describes you?

What makes you laugh out loud?
Life! Laughing is one of life’s greatest pleasures. I’m a clown at heart. Luckily, life is filled with many laughable moments, so I tend to get my laugh fix almost daily.

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
That’s tough. I have several scents I love. Freshly baked bread, pure, real vanilla, lilacs, to name a few. I have no special memories associated with the scents. They simply make me feel good.

Favourite place to spend time in.
Cozied up in bed watching a good movie.

Is there a genre that you refuse to read?
Heh heh. No! I read everything.

Writing! What started it?
A friend once told me that I didn’t choose writing. Writing chose me. When the stories finally started keeping me awake at night, I gave in and wrote that first scene. It was rough, very rough, but that, as they say, was all she wrote. Heh heh. I know, bad pun.

If you could choose another career what would it be?
Secret agent. Since I am incapable of choosing another career, I would be forced to take a career I write about.

Audiobooks! Any plans to have any of your books in audio format?
Yes. I have a producer working on that now. I’ll keep everyone updated.
That is awesome news!

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
The messages vary. I do believe in real love and I believe there are lots of men who aren’t afraid of love. Those types of men tend to show up as my heroes. A specific emotion? I hope my work conveys many different emotions.

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your books?
My intended audience is anyone who likes action packed love stories. From spies to courtesans, I write about men and women who aren’t afraid to live life.

What is next in your writing?
I’m currently working on The Highlander’s Courtesan, the second book in the MacLean Highlander novels. I’m also working on a paranormal Scottish medieval, Death Comes for a Knight. Look for that book this summer.
I am looking forward to reading them.

Thank  you so much Tarah for joining me in my chat room. I love your sense of humour.


Thank you all for coming by today. For those of you who have not read any of Tarah Scott’s books, I totally recommend them. I am sure you will find something you might enjoy in the various genres she writes.

To start you on your reading journey, Ms. Scott is giving away an ebook of “Highland Winds”, Volume 1 in The Scrolls of Cridhe which includes her novella, “Lord Grayson’s Bride”, along with 6 other books from fabulous authors.


She can’t allow his love for her to destroy him…

When Nicholas Spencer, Earl of Grayson, returns to claim the woman he loves, Lady Josephine Knightly isn’t willing to forgive him for abandoning her six years ago. But neither can she resist the man he’s become.

Two days after Josephine signs the marriage contract she discovers a nasty secret that will destroy her family. The only way to protect them—to protect the only man she’s ever loved—is to disappear…or die.

Nicholas won’t make the same mistake twice and let Josephine Knightly go. She loves him. He felt it in their one kiss before he left, and in the single kiss she allowed since his return. But she’s doing everything in her power to sabotage the marriage even before it’s begun. Nicholas doesn’t care. If Hell is where he must live to have her, then she must stand by his side in the fire.

Isn’t that an awesome treat? Nicholas is one of my book boyfriends and he came for a chat last November *sigh*

One lucky commenter, chosen by Sexy Mr. Random, will be announced after 3pm, EST, Monday, March 2, 2015. GOOD LUCK!

Until next time read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!
