Character Interview – Daniel Blackhawk of She’s Everything by Sable Hunter

  1. Good afternoon, we’re here for a character interview. Introduce yourself to our audience, please.

 

Hello, Beverly, my name is Daniel Blackhawk and I’ve been called a character in my time, but I must tell you, I have no idea why you’d want to talk to me.

 

  1. Well, Daniel, you’re a character in a romance novel. Sable Hunter tells me the title of the book you’re featured in is called She’s Everything, does that sound familiar? And if so, are you the hero or the villain of the book?

 

A book? Are you kidding me? Sable put me in a book? Man, I knew she was trouble.

Hold on…let me check this out. (He gets on his phone and does a quick search.)

Well, I’ll be. (He chuckles.) Now, I know why she’s been asking all those questions. I thought she was visiting just to eat Sara’s pies.

Well, in anybody’s book, I’d be the hard-headed alpha hero. The title of this book is the title of my favorite country-western song and one that describes the feelings I have for my special girl to a T – She’s Everything. From what I can see here, my book will be the first in her Cowboy Craze Series. Knowing Sable, she spun this series off her popular Hell Yeah! world and some of those favorite characters will appear with us. I’m sure my brothers Ezekiel (Easy), Samuel, and Benjen will each have their own books. Our stories will be set in the Hill Country of Texas on our ranch, which is located at the base of Packsaddle Mountain on the banks of the Llano River. Beautiful country, you ought to come out and visit us sometimes.

 

  1. Well, thank you, Daniel, I’d love to. So, tell me, how did you and your story come to Sable’s attention?

 

Don’t tell anybody, but I’ve read some of Sable’s books and I know she’s always on the look-out for worthy heroes. There was a newspaper article about my Sara not too long ago, how she saved the life of a little boy who’d wandered out into the highway. I think that article probably got her attention and then she started nosing around. As far as worthy heroes, I hope to hell I fall into that category. I know I’ve had some things happen to me that could be described by the words – ‘what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger’, and I’d like to think I’ve learned from those things. Maybe, they made me a better man.

My brothers and I are of Native American descent, which I think appeals to Sable, she sure did ask a lot of questions. She loves to add a little bit of local color and lore to her stories and the tales told of the area around our ranch are a good mix of historical and spooky.

I know Sable loves to write about flawed heroes and characters that have a mountain to climb. I know I certainly fit that description.

 

  1. Did you give Sable a hard time when she was writing your story?

 

Well, I didn’t know she was writing the story…but I do have a tendency to be stubborn. I always try to put my loved ones first and I’ve been told I sometimes go overboard trying to protect them. I almost lost Sara forever because I tried to protect her from my problems.

 

  1. Very interesting. What do you do for a living, Daniel?

 

When I was a kid, my friends and I would play Cowboys and Indians and hint-hint, I didn’t play the cowboy role often. Now, I do. I’m a cowboy and a rancher. I share ownership of Blackhawk Ranch with my three brothers, where we raise cattle and horses. Some of the property is used to raise hay, which we bale and sell. We’ve recently bought more land to increase our holdings and we’re in the process of setting up an exotic game area of our ranch for hunting.

 

  1. Who is the love of your life?

 

That’s an easy question, the love of my life is Sara Riley. I fell in love with her from the moment I first saw her. Bam! Lovestruck. Lightning bolt. I wanted to propose before I introduced myself.

 

  1. What was the first thing you noticed about her?

 

My first glimpse of Sara occurred when she ran out into a busy highway to pluck a little child out of the path of an eighteen-wheeler. She was an angel of mercy and she certainly looked the part. I thought she was the most beautiful sight I’d ever laid eyes on and I decided at that moment that she’d be mine.

 

  1. What’s your greatest fear?

 

Before I met Sara, my greatest fear was the judgment of others. I hated to be weighed in the balance and found wanting just because of the color of my skin or my last name. Loving Sara changed that, she allowed me look at myself through her eyes.

Another issue I had to work through was my fear of failing the ones I love. Again, Sara helped me understand that true love can conquer all fears.

Now, the only thing I truly am afraid of is something happening to Sara. She’s my life.

 

  1. What’s your motto in life?

 

Hmmm, I haven’t thought much about mottos. But if I had to come up with one, I’d say its…Lightning doesn’t always strike twice, so grab onto what you want in life with both hands.

When you read the book, you’ll see what that means.

 

  1. How do the other characters in your book view you?

 

My brothers view me as their protector, their big brother, the one who helps and guides them. (He smiles and winks.) Sara views me as sexy, I hope. She also knows that I would die for her in a heartbeat, I hope I’m her hero.

And there are a couple of folks in the book who love to put me down, to remind me that there are people in the world who will always find me lacking for no reason other than I’m not like them.

 

  1. What do you think readers will find interesting about you?

 

I think the female readers will enjoying seeing how much I love Sara and what I’m willing to do to prove that love to her. They’ll also, hopefully, like my cowboy lifestyle. Living and working a ranch in Texas is an experience I wouldn’t trade for any other job in the world.

 

  1. What is the kinkiest thing you’ve ever done?

 

Oh, ha! Wow, that’s personal. Well, let me see, I’m a pretty typical American guy. I can’t say that I’m into BDSM, but I do like sex to be adventurous. I’ve been known to have sex in places like the beautiful waters at the Slab, a swimming hole on our ranch and we’ve also made love in the hay loft. And…I didn’t tell Sable this, or it would’ve ended up in the book, but I do love pie and I’ve eaten it off some pretty plates in my time, but the prettiest dish was Sara herself.

 

  1. Will we be seeing you in future books?

 

Oh, yes. Knowing Sable, she already has Benjen’s and Easy’s books in the planning stage and Sara and I will be right there, along with some McCoy friends and family.

 

  1. What makes you happy?

 

My Sara makes me happy. Just looking at her makes me smile. Like the title says, she’s my everything. My brothers also make me happy, I never want to live too far from them. I can’t wait until their all settled down and happy as we are. Sara is already pregnant and I look forward to big family celebrations. I have a sweet tooth too, so when Sara makes my favorite Almond Joy pie, she knows I’m a contented guy.

 

  1. What makes you mad?

 

Having someone threaten my family makes me furious, as Sara’s abusive ex found out in no uncertain terms. Injustice and racism angers me also, since I’ve walked in those moccasins and know how hurtful and damaging they can be.

Sara is Daniel’s everything.
Their happy-ever-after seems assured…until the unthinkable happens.
When their world falls apart, only the power of love can save them.
Excerpt:

 

“See anything you like?”

Daniel chuckled. “Now, that’s a leading question if I’ve ever heard one.”

Sara flushed. “I meant pie.”

“You’ve got some great looking pies here.” He took a whiff. She smelled good too, fresh and sweet, like a summer rain. “What do you recommend?”

“What’s your favorite flavor?”

“Anything I could taste on your lips.” Daniel knew he was being forward, but once you find what you’ve been looking for, waiting seemed foolhardy.

“You’re a tease.”

When she looked up at him and smiled, her face went from pretty to heart-stopping and Daniel almost went to his knees. “Tell me your name, beautiful.”

“Sara.”

“Sara. I love it, it feels good on my lips.” She was even more beautiful up close, where he could see the emotions flit across her face and appreciate the twinkle in her sapphire blue eyes. When she offered her hand and his fingers closed over hers, a rush of energy flowed between them – electric, heated, sensual. “I’m Daniel Blackhawk and I love…” He gave her a dazzling smile. “Coconut.”

“Coconut.” She repeated inanely, hesitant to reclaim her hand. “I have an Almond Joy pie I bet you’d enjoy.” With his lips curled into a smile, he transformed from a knight in cowboy boots to an angel, one of the fallen variety who spent their time being naughty because they’d turned their back on Heaven for the privilege. She blushed at her own thoughts, knowing she was staring, hypnotized by his presence. Tingles of guilt made their way up her spine. If he knew her better, he wouldn’t want her. “Would you like to try it?”

“Yes, I would. In fact, give me the whole pie.”  When he saw another customer approaching, he knew he couldn’t wait any longer. “About the date, I was serious. I really want to spend some time with you.”

“Thank you. I’m flattered.” She wanted to accept – but she couldn’t, not until she figured out how to solve the mess she’d made of her life. “I’m afraid I can’t, I already have plans.”

“Another date? Break it.”

“No, not a date. I have to bake, this is the way I make my living.”

“I bet I’d make a good assistant, if you’d give me a chance.”

Sara chewed on her lower lip, presenting him with the pie. “Take this, on the house.” She wanted to give him something and this was all she was free to give. Hiding her scars was all she knew how to do.

Daniel accepted them, but he put money in the tip jar labeled Children’s Miracle Network. “In your honor.” He held up the to-go box. “I’ll relish every bite and I’ll see you tomorrow. I’m almost certain my…hankering for pie is not going to be satisfied anytime soon.”

Daniel moved to his truck. Yea, he was smitten. One little rejection wasn’t about to dissuade him – hell no.

His heart was set on getting to know Sara Riley a whole lot better.

Character Interview ~ Lee Santiago ~ A Sailor’s Delight

One night he doesn’t remember – One night she’ll never forget!

ASailorsDelight_LRGA Sailor’s Delight (the Santiago’s book 2)

Lee Santiago went from one mistake to the next. When a friend dies, exposing his mortality all too well Lee’s family steps in to force him to make something of himself. He can’t be a party boy all his life and if he wants to sign his life away, it will be on the dotted line. He doesn’t even have time to say goodbye. Anyway it was only a drunken one night stand.

Isabelle was always the good girl. Until that night. When the man she’d always worshiped finally noticed her. She couldn’t say no. She’s heartsick to find out he doesn’t remember it. Isabelle’s life crashes around her when the results are in. The truth comes out and she has nowhere to turn. She looks for Lee, but he’s gone.

Will he be man enough to step up and face the consequences when he learns the truth?

CHARACTER INTERVIEW: Lee Santiago

Are you upset your name is not in the title?

I think the title describing my Izzy is perfect.

Is your love interest the way you pictured him or her? Or would you have preferred someone with a different hair color?

I never considered anyone other than Izzy. Hell, I tried not to imagine Izzy as I know she is too good for me. Luckily she didn’t agree!

Do you have any annoying habits your author did not share with us in your book?

Other than the drinking, drugs and women? Seriously? What could be worse?

Do you have siblings? Are you close to them?

Well, since Izzy is best friends with mi hermana, my sister Jacinta, I have no choice! And mi hermano, my brother Alejandro, has saved my ass more than once. So, yeah, we’re close. The whole family is.

Any hobbies we might be interested in knowing about?

Drinking? But I’m trying to stop. It’s not easy either.

Are you happy with the profession your author chose for you or would you rather be working at something totally different and why?

I had no choice! She’s as bad as mi familia. But I didn’t have any plans on a profession. I was happy partying. But I am enjoying the Navy, just don’t tell her!

Are you planning to make an appearance in a sequel? If not are you unhappy about that?

Well, I’m sure you’ll hear about me and Izzy in Alejandro’s story. Especially as I insisted my story be told before his.

Now for a personal question. Is there enough sex in the book for you? Would you have liked more?

I like sex! But I didn’t really want to share Izzy with anyone. So, no, it was enough.

Did your author listen to you when you tried to redirect her?

Oh yes. She was ready to go on and on and on. I like to get to the meat of things so we had to compromise on what is hopefully a happy medium.

Did your story end too soon?

No, I don’t think so. I think the ending, which is just the beginning for Izzy and me was perfect.

Were you happy with your wardrobe?

It was okay. I wasn’t happy about putting on a uniform but learned to live with it. Thank God I was able to get back in civvies.

A Character Interview with Hannah

 

Do you ever feel jealous of the queen, your former mistress and friend?

She’s still very much my friend. Sometimes late at night I’m jealous of the romance between Ella and Alexander, but I’ve come to accept my position at court. As for Ella being queen, that’s a job I would never want.

 

How hard is it for you to keep a secret?

Lies mounting up will get you caught. The goal is to weave a tale of truths into the secret so that you remember every detail. There are times I wish I didn’t have to keep secrets, but my life and those I love depend on it. I know how to keep my mouth shut. It’s not easy but I’m careful.

 

You travel to Paris quite a bit. Do you like it there?

It’s absolutely beautiful. There’s a wealth of silk, jewels, and other fine goods at the market that I can’t easily get elsewhere.

 

What about the men in Paris?

I avoid most of them as best I can. If I brought a gentleman back to the palace, Ella or Alexander would likely have my head.

 

Excerpt

 

Waiting outside the bathhouse, a gentleman, with honey-golden hair and eyes as green as the blades of grass on a summer’s day, stops in front of me. He looks me over and smiles. His face is covered in scruff and dirt licks his skin. “I approve.”

There’s an arrogance surrounding this man, and I have the urge to silence him.

“You approve of what?” I ask and cross my arms defensively. My eyes narrow, unpleased.

“I approve of you joining me in the bathhouse. Though I admit you look pretty clean already. Guess I shouldn’t be surprised.” He reaches out to touch a strand of my blonde hair and I swat his fingers away and force his arm down to his side.

“You’ve lost your mind.” My grip on his wrist is forceful, showing him who’s boss.

“What do you think you’re doing?” he asks, glancing down at my hand still holding his wrist.

Three Questions with the author, Ravyn Rayne

 

All your romance novels tend to be novella length, can you tell us why that is?

Sure! I find I prefer reading and writing shorter romance novels, especially when it comes to romantic erotica. I want my readers to enjoy the novel, the romance, and the sex without feeling boggled down by too many plot details that aren’t necessary. (Have you ever read a book and thought, wow this scene was totally unnecessary?) If I want to write a subplot or have a specific direction I desire the story to go in, then I will continue the series in another book. Some of my favorite romantic erotica novels are 22k-30k words, which tend to be the length I’m writing. This also gives me the opportunity to write a lot and publish often. So readers will be able to pick up a new Ravyn Rayne title every month and sometimes two per month!

 

Is there going to be a third book in the Palace Secrets series?

Yes! Grave Misfortune has already been written. It’s scheduled for release September 24th.

 

Where can readers find out information on your upcoming novels?

I have a page on my website Ravyn’s Books, that exclusively details the books, blurb, release date (if available). It also includes information on the current books I’m working on. Sometimes there’s changes to the page if a book hasn’t been released yet (title, slight blurb change), but for the most part it’s fairly accurate. It’s also the most up to date place I keep information.

 

Snag the first book, Palace Secrets

PalaceSecrets_500x755

 

Love comes in many forms and always at a price.

At twenty-three, Princess Isabella must settle down for the sake of her kingdom. Caught up in a secret affair with her lady-in-waiting, Hannah, the princess knows it can only last for so long.

When Prince Alexander arrives to court her, he confides that his father is on his death bed, and he will be crowned king soon. Isabella hastily agrees to the proposal, desiring to be queen, knowing little about her soon to be husband.

Murder, secrets, and lies combine with menage, spanking, and erotic encounters in this steamy medieval romance.

Chalvaren Rising ~ Paula Millhouse ~ Character Interview with Magnus the Dragon.

Character Interview

 

Introduce yourself.  What book are you from? Are you the hero, heroine, villain?

My name is Magnus, and I am a sentient dragon from the Kingdom of Chalvaren. I flew into fiction first in Dragonstone, but I really earn my wings in the fantasy romance novel Chalvaren Rising by my author, Paula Millhouse.

Of course, I am the one they will call hero. Some Readers may think of Elf Prince Kort Elias as the hero of Chalvaren Rising, but I’m afraid that’s not so. My Mia, my rider, is definitely the heroine. She loves Kort, so I tolerate him.

 

How did you come to your author’s attention?

She has had this affinity for my kind, for dragons, since she was a child. Paula needed to write a fantasy romance where dragons are allies, keepers of the castle if you will, so I auditioned for the role. She keeps this idea in her heart that love is worth fighting for. I helped her get that notion of valiance across on the page.

 

Did you give your author a hard time when she was writing your story?

Of course, well, I do not exactly fit in to the wing of dragons on Chalvaren yet. I have eaten two people, and one of them was an elf. I did not know any better at the time. Because I have the gift of speech, like my sire Garnet the Red, the other dragons on Chalvaren give me a wide berth. And when I attacked Queen Elissabet for being mean to Mia that caused all sorts of problems.

 

What do you do for a living?

I fly with the wing of mighty dragons who protect the elves of Castle Elias in Chalvaren. I am still learning to get my landing maneuvers down – the ground is not my friend – but I am learning. We are like watch-dogs, but we fly, and every dragon has a unique weapon. I have not discovered mine yet, but I suppose our story will reveal all.

 

Who is the love of your life?

My rider, Mia Ansgar. She’s more than a mother figure, she’s my imprinted rider. She saved my life, and helped Kort return me to the Kingdom of Chalvaren. I would willingly give my last claw to see my Mia happy.

 

What was the first thing you noticed about him/her?

Mia is beauty incarnate, with long tresses of golden hair, and pointed elven ears. She’s the guardian of the Dragonstone, an ancient artifact nonpareil, and she’s protecting it for me. When I reach maturity I am destined to use the fist-sized amethyst to unite the dragons of Chalvaren. I noticed her courage first.

 

What’s your greatest fear?

In Chalvaren Rising, my greatest fear is that Isa Ansgar, an embittered wizard and the last of Mia’s kin will kill her and enslave me to serve her lover Malachai. This simply cannot happen, I tell you, and I will give my life before I let the witch win.

 

What’s your motto in life?

Love is worth fighting for. That concept drew me to my author.

 

How do the other characters in your book view you?

I am afraid they find me odd and threatening. As the one and only Spirit Dragon, an Aurora Class Dragon, I have an affinity for magic. I suspect the elves and dragons in my book are afraid of me.

 

What do you think reader will find interesting about you?

That Mia and I share an affinity for magic, but of course, the Readers will most likely find it interesting that I cannot roar yet. I try, but all that comes out are embarrassing croaks. They will probably find it humorous that I have trouble landing. Kort is terrified I might break Mia’s neck before I perfect the skill, and he yells about it a lot.

 

What is the kinkiest thing you’ve ever done?

I have not learned to do kinky things yet, but because I can read I suppose I could learn. I’ll check King Lachlan’s Library for sacred texts, and get back to you when I grow up.

 

Will we be seeing you in future books?

Absolutely. My author thinks a Christmas story is on the horizon, and we are working on what happens next after the climax in Chalvaren Rising.

 

 What makes you happy?

Eating fresh fish on the seashore below Castle Elias. Flying with the wing of mighty dragons who protect the Elves of the Kingdom of Chalvaren. Watching and learning from my sire, Garnet the Red, the castle’s resident Fire Dragon.

 

What makes you mad?

Wizards who use magic for anything that does not sustain life. Everyone is given certain gifts that can and should be used for good. I think humans call that nastiness hatred and bullying. When they corrupt that sort of valiant magic and use it to hurt others, that seriously ruffles my last scale.

Innocence ~ Character Interview ~ Holly J. Gill

Good Morning. Please introduce yourself.  What book are you from? Are you the hero, heroine, villain?

Hello there and thank you so kindly for having me visiting you today. My name is Calvin Edwards I am from the Innocence series I’m the hero and heroine, due to having this series written from both myself and Kacey Richards.

How did you come to your author’s attention?

It was my parents hall, land and the river that brought Holly’s attention to me, due to her using the exact same location for another book and loved the hall so much she wished to use it in another book. And also Holly became compelled to a song that filled her imagination and helped create such a powerful story, Return To Innocence by Enigma.

Did you give your author a hard time when she was writing your story?

No, no, I would never do that (chuckles). No honestly, I think once reader start reading the series they will see I am nothing but a kind hearted man who…well let’s say turned up in the wrong place at the wrong time…even I never saw what was coming!

What do you do for a living?

I work with my father running the families Real Estate Company based up and down England. I am actually based in London, running the establishment, the company basically buys properties do them up to the highest standard and sell.

Who is the love of your life?

Oh gosh, this is a very difficult questions for my as my heart has only ever belonged to one woman, and now…well she’s back in my life, only it’s not as simple as telling her how I feel it’s more about being there for her and making sure she stays safe.

What do you want more than anything?

To love someone who will love me back, without seeing the luxuries in my life.

What’s your greatest fear?

Not being there for Kacey!

What’s your motto in life?

Don’t take anything for granted, because one day it will come bite you on the bum.

How do the other characters in your book view you?

Sincere, dedicated, passionate, but I also have my very professional side due to my line of work.

What do you think reader will find interesting about you?

My strength to stay and help Kacey through her troubled times. I know I was a fool for not calling the police when I managed to finally get her of the bridge, but I honestly saw a young woman who was distraught and needed someone to care and offer her help.

What is the kinkiest thing you’ve ever done?

Saved Kacey. Saved her unborn baby. Made sure she had somewhere for the first time in years she had somewhere safe, warm and clean to stay. The stories she told me broke my heart.

Will we be seeing you in future books?

Yes, three more Innocence of Love, Breaking Innocence and Return To Innocence.

What makes you happy?

Seeing Kacey smile, that is priceless!

What makes you mad?

Wow, this is a tough questions, right now I have a few matters that make me mad I won’t mention them all but firstly I do not tolerate bullying, that really gets me mad, and I will resolve the issues. However, one person who makes me mad and I struggle to be anywhere near is Rosalind Kacey’s mum, I resent the fact she wasn’t there for Kacey when she most needed her.

Do you think you and Kacey will get together?

I have no idea. I like her. I like her a lot, but we have many issues we need to untangle and get through before we could even consider walking down that road.

What is your current state of mind?

Mixed up, I have no idea which direction to head, as either way would be wrong!

If you could do anything in the world right now what would you do?

Turn the clock back!

Interview with Anne

I walk into the homelike shop and am floored. Anne’s place is exquisite. Just as I walk in, a bubbly woman approaches me.

Anne: (I watch as the older woman extends her hand out to me). Hello, dear. I’m Anne.

Me: Hello. Thank you so much for allowing me to speak with you today.

Anne: (As she leads me away from the front door she talks). Oh, it’s my pleasure dear. Let’s go back to my table and sit, shall we? (I walk with her and inspect the amazing décor and handmade items of this precious shop)

Anne: Would you like a drink before we start? I have tea, if you would like some?

Me: Yes, that would be lovely, thank you. (I wait a few moments as she returns to the gorgeous handcrafted table with two teacups and sits opposite of me. I take a sip and enjoy the lemon tea she graciously has offered me).

Me: Thanks for the tea. Shall we begin? (I watch as she nods her head in agreement)
Me: You are an inspiration, did you know that? (I watch her baffled by my statement)

Anne: Me, an inspiration? I’ve never thought of myself as one… I just lead my life with positivity and kindness.

Me: (I watch her stir her spoon in her tea. She seems shocked still by my statement. She’s so sweet). Yes, you are, but you are also an inspiration to more people than you realize.

Anne: (She smiles) Well, that’s nice if I can inspire someone else…then I have lived a good life.

Me: Where do you get all your positivity?

Anne: (I watch as she smiles and glances away from me) I grew up with strong morals and values. My late husband, too lived a kind life… and well, he completed me.

Me: It must be hard without him now.

Anne: (She nods at me). My husband was an incredible man. Just incredible.

Me: Speaking of incredible men, what do you have to say about your Giovanni?

Anne: (Her eyes no longer are filled with pain, but now shine with happiness). Oh my Gio—he’s a wonderful man. You would love him. All the ladies love him, but he doesn’t date anymore.

Me: Is that so?

Anne: (Looks at me funny) Yes, he’s met a new girl, Gracelynn I believe… but he’s cautious that one. I wish he would live again and remember life is too short to live in the past.

Me: (I glance at my watch and realize I’m running late for my next appointment). Anne, it was so nice to meet you today. I am sorry, but I must go. I am running late for another appointment. Can I ask one more question before I leave? (She nods in agreement again, smiling)

Me: What would you like to tell the readers?

Anne: That’s simple: Believe. Believe all things happen for a reason. You never know what could be waiting for you.

Me: I smile and am happy to have met this wonderful woman. She’s definitely a positive and kind woman. I shake her hand, thank her and leave her wonderful shop. I smile to myself as I walk to my next appointment happy to have met the wonderful Anne from Granted Wishes.

Book Excerpts
Excerpts for Granted Wishes
By Tanya Vought

Excerpt One
© Tanya Vought

“I can tell you I’ve never wanted anyone as badly as I want you.” He leans forward and places his forehead on hers. He takes her right hand and places it over his heart. “You have my heart. You’ve had it since the night I banged into your car.”

Excerpt Two
© Tanya Vought

“I will fight for you. I’ll always prove to you that you’re what I want.”

Excerpt Three
© Tanya Vought

“Pay me for staying at my place? Are you trying to sound like a prostitute? Because you sure sound like one when you talk like that. Besides, is that what you say to a man who went out of his way to rescue you?”

Excerpt Four
This Excerpt is part of Chapter 1
© Tanya Vought

Chapter 1
The dark, somber sky matches Gracelynn Calhoun’s disposition. Her heart beats rapidly in her chest as she grips the steering wheel of her Hyundai Accent. From her windshield, she notices the barren trees that once held her favorite fall foliage. Looking at them makes her feel just as empty as the trees in the Layton Hills Cemetery. She releases her right hand from the steering wheel, and clutches her angel necklace as tears pour down her cheeks. She closes her eyes, continuing to hold the necklace, remembering the day her beloved gave it to her. She lets go of her necklace, opens her green-grey eyes and wipes her cheeks.
While walking to her beloved’s tomb, leaves crinkle under her favorite pair of black, high-heeled shoes. As she reaches the stone, tears trickle down her face and she drops to her knees. She immediately starts cleaning around his grave, removing all debris.
She stares at the gravestone, and drags her fingers over the intricately carved angel wings. She reads aloud, even though she doesn’t need to. “Angelo Grant Calhoun. 11/28/1980 – 11/30/2012. “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.” More tears stream down her face. She reaches up and touches the top of the stone, resting her hand in the middle of the stone, like she’d be touching Angelo’s heart. “I miss you so much, Angelo. How can I move on with my life…move on without you?” she cries to the gravestone. “I love you so much. I wore your favorite dress and shoes, hoping that you’d see me today. How crazy is that?” She laughs through tears, wipes her cheeks with her hand and grabs her necklace. “I still remember the day you gave me this,” she expresses to the gravestone. “How can I move on when you were my whole life? I’ll love you forever and always.” The wind picks up suddenly and all the leaves that she had just cleaned up go flying around her. She looks around now, with the leaves in her hair, and hears disembodied laughing. She tries to pick the leaves out of her hair, now full of dead foliage. She looks around the stones, but spots no one else. “I’m losing it. No one is here, Gracelynn. Get a grip,” she tells herself as she stands back up, and continues to clean herself off.
She bends down to wipe her beloved’s stone again, and her phone rings. Startled, she falls down and lands on her butt. “Good grief,” she shrieks. Her phone rings again, and she opens her small purse to take out the phone. It’s Ben calling. She stands up and looks around, hoping there isn’t anyone around who witnessed the entire ordeal. “Hello, Ben. What can I do for you?” she asks as she brushes the back of her behind, wondering what he wants.
“Hello, Gracie,” he purrs into the phone. Oh boy. This must be a doozy for him to talk like this on the phone. “Cassie and I have some things we’d like to go over with you. When are you coming in?” This time around, he sounds monotone, neutral. She glances at her watch, and realizes she’s late for work. “Oh man, Ben, I’m sorry I’m late. I didn’t realize the time. I’m at the cemetery and I’ll be there as soon as I can,” she tells him while wiping her right hand down her dress in a nervous gesture.
“Oh, Gracelynn. I’m such an ass,” Ben says through the phone. “I forgot you were going there this morning. Take all the time you need and I’ll see you in say, a half hour?” he asks her and hangs up, leaving Gracelynn more confused than before.

Hearts Last Chance (The Chosen) ~ Kenzie Michaels

HeartsLastChance_Draft2Today I sat down with Brock Robertson, or BaRok-do you even have a last name on your planet?

 

Yes I do, but it’s too hard to translate into English.

 

I see.  Brock is currently the hero in Heart’s Last Chance, which is book #1 of a new Sci-Fi Romance series.   What do you think of the title?  Do you think it should have had your name in it?

 

I don’t think ‘Brock’s Last Chance’ would sell very well.  So no.

 

Explain something to me.  You say you’ve been watching Tricia since she was four years old.  How old were you when you met her?  Didn’t your parents have any say about you traipsing the galaxy?

 

(Squirms)  I was a precocious teenager.  And you have to remember, time moves faster on TriJupe than on Earth.

 

True, but still, isn’t that a little creepy?

 

Kenzie, every time I appeared to her, I was in an age-appropriate form.  It’s not like I was a twenty year old man trying to talk to a ten year old girl.  When Tricia was four, she simply saw a young boy her own age petting her dog.  By the time she was ten, she was using telepathy to speak to me, though she didn’t know it at the time.  I planted tiny suggestions in her mind-not harmful ones, mind you.  Sometimes it would be ‘Math is fun’, and she’d stick out her tongue and start complaining about having to learn her multiplication tables.

 

Okay, I believe you!  Tell me about your family.  Any siblings?

 

I have two brothers and two sisters.  My oldest brother NiKoh lives in his own dwelling on the other side of our Trade Area, and is in our military.  My older sister SaLie is also in our military, as a healer.  She lives at home, as does my younger sister, KiRah.  My brother LoGar is an ambassador on a neighboring planet.  KiRah has not yet reached maturity, and is pre-bonded to her Chosen.  Am I making any sense?

 

(Laughs)  Yes, yes you are.

 

Good.  Holding you all together is our wise mother.  My father passed away a few seasons ago, so I’m glad my sisters are still at home.

 

So you’re a close family then?

 

Very close.

 

What is your occupation?

 

On TriJupe, I work as Financial Advisor to our Council of Elders and for our Prime family, or leader.  When I met Tricia in human form, I told her I was an investment broker, which is similar.

 

If I may ask a personal question…is there enough sex in the book for you?

 

(coughs)  Personally, I think there is too much!  Why did you have to go into such detail?

 

Sex sells, Brock.  One of my best sellers has almost the same amount of bedroom scenes.

 

I see.  So you’re hoping our story will sell well?

 

Yes.  I’m….trying to relocate and more money in the bank would be nice.

 

That explains your obsession with houses in KiRah’s story.  Plus, I’d be happy to advise you on the housing market-

 

Thank you, but you’re a fictional character, and I like my realtor.  We’re getting off subject a bit.  I’ll admit some of my house hunting has crept in, and while we’re talking about your sister, are you planning to make an appearance in any of the sequels?

 

Only if you think I need to be in them.  I do expect to be invited to any homecomings, Bonding Ceremonies, or any gatherings my mother throws.  She likes to entertain.

 

Thank you so much for your time, Brock.  Here’s an excerpt from Heart’s Last Chance, in which Tricia learns more about customs on TriJupe.  Enjoy!

 

Blurb:

Everyone has an imaginary friend at some point, right?  Well, what if you discover yours is actually an alien who is

fascinated with Earth?

 

Tricia Alexander’s dreams are haunted by a mystery lover.  When she discovers the man she met in a nightclub is from another planet, will she accept his story or kick him out?

 

Brock was young Tricia’s imaginary friend and confidant, and watched her grow up over the years.  After gaining permission from the leaders of his planet, he sought to bond with her twice before, but with little results.  When he’s given a final chance, will he succeed?  Or will a family crisis prove too much?

 

 

 

 

Excerpt:

“I no longer need my mother’s permission to bond with my Chosen. She will accept you, simply because I happen to be her favored son.” Brock smiled and rubbed small circles on her lower back. “However, there is something else I must prepare you for.”

 

“You already told me to expect silver people, with multi-colored hair.”

 

“Yes. This concerns my brother LoGar and his mate.”

 

Tricia relaxed against him again. “What about them?”

 

She felt Brock take a deep breath. “DaSie has another mate. LoGar is her second. This means they have a tri-union, and any children she has with him will be given her Primary’s name.”

 

Tricia’s mind whirled. “What? Why? He’s okay with this?” This was straight out of one of her favorite series of books, only alien-style. “Is your brother all right in the head? He doesn’t mind sharing? That’s insane! Every woman’s dream, but still insane.”

 

His arms tightened around her. “I did not observe you dreaming of being with two men at the same time.”

 

Tricia kissed his jaw. “What did you call me sleeping beside Tony while you were in my mind a few weeks ago?”

 

“That was different. I knew you were dissatisfied with him and it was only a matter of time before we were to meet. What are you saying? You would take another?”

 

“Oh God no. I’m a one-man woman, you know that. I’m just saying, if the timing was right, and I had enough alcohol in me, and two guys wanted to do me at the same time…” She was too embarrassed to go on.

 

“Ah. I get it. What is daily way? I have not observed…”

 

Tricia placed her hand over his mouth. “It isn’t a custom, it’s a series of romance books. A fictional town where tri-unions are normal. It doesn’t exist in America, except maybe behind closed doors.”

 

“This is a fantasy of yours then?”

 

Thanks for having me today!
