Corporal Nicholas ‘Saint’ Santiago needs to go home to reclaim the man he used to be. To be the man he was before Operation Enduring Freedom slowly hardened his heart. He needs to reconnect to the values and the reasons he is doing what he does. Saint also needs to try to forget the courageous woman he fell in love with.
Petty Officer Angelina Jones’ life changed the moment Saint saved her life. She survived the blast but now has to deal with the fact that she will never be whole. She can’t believe that anyone would want her the way she is now. Digging up her courage, Angelina moves forward hoping against hope that she can live a full life again.
Crossing paths again brings their emotions to a full boil. A coincidence that will have them both reaching for their dreams.
Character Interview: Nicholas ‘Saint’ Santiago
Are you upset your name is not in the title?
Well, my nickname is, so that’s okay. I truly am a Saint you know! *winks*
Is your love interest the way you pictured him or her? Or would you have preferred someone with a different hair color.
Angel is perfect. It’s not so much her looks as her beautiful personality. Not that she’s not hot! She is sizzling.
Do you have any annoying habits your author did not share with us in your book?
Moi? Annoying habits? Of course not. *smirks*
Do you have siblings? Are you close to them?
I have a little sister, mi hermana. We were close when we were younger but the years since I’ve been away have been hard.
Any hobbies we might be interested in knowing about?
I like to work with my hands. Gardening is one I enjoy. But don’t let that out! You’ll ruin my machismo!
Are you happy with the profession your author chose for you or would you rather be working at something totally different and why?
I love what I do. Being a Marine is what I was born to do. It’s hard, but someone has to do it. I know I have my whole family behind me to support me. And now I have my Angel. I would never have met her if I hadn’t become a Marine.
Are you planning to make an appearance in a sequel? If not are you unhappy about that?
I’m sure that even if you don’t see me again, you’ll hear about me. Mi familia is close and just wait until you see what mi primos (my cousins) are getting up to! Jandro always had it in him to be a hero, and Lee, well he creates his own problems. I might just have to step in to help straighten him out.
Now for a personal question. Is there enough sex in the book for you? Would you have liked more?
*chuckles* You can never have enough sex. But Angelina was hungry. I just looked on it as foreplay.
Did you author handle your “love” scenes the way you like or was she too explicit or not explicit enough?
I thought it was perfect. I’m not exactly shy!
How many re-writes did you have to live through?
Way too many! I think she changed it at least ten times if not more. Not to mention the total rewrite where she finally let my Angel tell her side of the story!
Did your story end too soon?
That’s hard to say. Angel is a bit shyer than me. We were heading back to bed. That was my plan at least. *winks* My story isn’t over though, you’ll hear more about us.
Were you happy with your wardrobe?
How could I not be? I was either in uniform, one that is totally awesome by the way, in board shorts or naked. I like naked. Oh yeah, I did have to wear a monkey suit, but it was worth it. Especially with Angel helping to take it off.
