My chat with Liam

Hello and welcome!

Do you ever wonder about chance meetings? How a comment rolls into a delightful experience?

I commented on a thread about a book at a FB party, then I got curious about the series. The blurbs caught my attention, so I got all of books in the series. I spent the next few days reading the books… or more like inhaled them, they were so good. That is how I met my next guest whom I fell in love with and he is now one of my book boyfriends.

And here he is…

WELCOME! WELCOME! Please have a seat.

I have to have a chat with Zoe, she could have warn me, he is serious eye candy!!!


He just looks at me, grinning…
Did I say that out loud? My cheeks are on fire… I am too old to be blushing like a teenager… I wish you could see him…

wait!!!! you can… here

What is your full name? 

William Alexander McIntosh III, but my friends call me Liam. We’re going to be friends, right?

I wish you could be… for real…

Do you have a nickname?

Ha. Evie has been known to call me her Boy Wonder. But as I said, my friends call me Liam.

he winks

What is one word best describes you?


Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Cargo shorts, brown leather belt, white t-shirt, blue oxford button down shirt on top.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

In a lot of ways our book was Evie’s story. I’d do anything for her, and Zoe knows that. She also knows I’ve got some unsettled business with my family, but now isn’t the time to deal with that. Not when my new family needs me to be strong and stable. So she portrayed me accurately in the here and now. There are some layers she hasn’t yet explored, though.

You say that like there’s more to your story.
Evie and I are getting married next year, and we’ve invited Zoe to the wedding. I’ll let Zoe decide how much of that story she wants to tell.

What makes you laugh out loud?

My step-son, Max. He’s going to be a stand-up comedian when he grows up. Evie when she’s pissed off. Some of the new friends I’ve made here in Wardham. The men are…well, let’s just say they’re super-protective of their women. That can be comical at times.

What is your favourite dessert?


What is your favourite drink?


What is your greatest fear?

Turning into my father.

What is your favourite colour?


What do you wear when you go to sleep?

Cotton drawstring pants. I used to sleep naked, but we’ve got three kids in our house and most nights at least one of them shows up at some point for water or cuddles.

What is the perfect romantic date?
A private picnic. Lots of champagne and strawberries, and the entire afternoon to lay in the sun.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?

Not really. Maybe the bottom of my feet, but I’m quick, and I’ll turn that around pretty quickly.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Brown sugar. Reminds me of Evie making everyone oatmeal. After she sprinkles brown sugar on top, I have this fantasy of slowly licking her fingers clean.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?

Honest enthusiasm and a sense of adventure. Great posture. Long hair. A quick smile. 

Do you have somebody in your life now?

Not just somebody. I’ve got Evie. And she’s perfect.

What is one word best describes her?


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

Sure is. Turns out this little town I’ve moved to is exploding with love stories. Before I arrived, Evie’s sister reunited with her first boyfriend, and one of her best friends found love with the guy next door. And now I’m working for Evan and Ty West, the founders of Go West Winery, and something tells me Zoe is hanging around just in case they find their perfect mates. She has crushes on them, it’s cute.

I think Zoe is not alone in the crush area, I can’t wait for Evan’s story.

Great! I can’t wait for more books.

Thank you for taking time and answering my questions. I am looking forward to read about your wedding. Congratulations and give my hugs to Evie. She is awesome, I like her spunk.


And there you have it. Liam and Evie’s story is in When They Weren’t Looking, book 3 in Wardham Series by Zoe York.


AMAZON ~ B&N ~ KOBO ~ ARe ~ iTunes

She’s not looking for love…
A girl can have just one night of fun, right? After years in a spirit-breaking former marriage, Evie needed to get her groove back. Cutting loose in the big city with no strings attached—no matter how cute her one night stand guy might be. Besides, she’ll never see him again once she goes home to Wardham.

…He’s not thinking about forever.
Liam knows showing up on her doorstep might throw Evie for a loop. But Wardham’s his new home now, and he just can’t get the sexy single mother out of his mind. A second date isn’t to much to ask, is it? Or a third, and a fourth!

It’s not what they expected. But it might turn out to be just what they need.
Life has a funny way of throwing curveballs, though. Just when things are finally going right for Evie, two little lines on a pregnancy test change everything. Now she’s running scared, and Liam has to pull out all the stops to prove a family with her is everything he’s ever wanted.
