Interviews with a character from a book

Meet Dr. Aaron Kendall from Not Through Loving You @pat_preston #RLFblog #genreWelcome Aaron from Not Through Loving You, a new single title contemporary romance.

In the Southern town of Lafayette Falls, a new life brings together a woman with everything to lose and a doctor with everything to prove.

When a sickly infant is surrendered at the Lafayette Falls Medical Center, and orphaned soon after, pediatrician Aaron Kendall arranges to adopt him. After a painful divorce, the busy baby doc is about to realize his own dream of becoming a father when the baby’s beautiful estranged aunt turns up. She doesn’t exactly approve of the Kendall bachelor pad complete with Aaron’s cranky dad and wacky brother, forcing Aaron to form a risky alliance with her.

Country singer-songwriter Lia Montgomery barely knew her half-sister, but she’s determined her tiny nephew goes to a good home. If only she fit the bill herself, but her stressful life on the road is no place for a baby. Yet despite her misgivings, as she gets to know Aaron, she realizes the smart and sexy doctor is everything a child could want in a dad and more unsettling, everything she’s ever hoped for in a man. After all she’s put him through, is it too late to form a family and maybe put a song in the good doctor’s heart?

Introducing Dr. Aaron Kendall

Age: 36
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Tennessee
Profession: pediatrician/neonataology

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I’m tall. Six three and I have athletic build. I inherited my mother’s black hair and blue that were passed down from her Irish ancestors.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I live in Lafayette Falls, Tennessee where I practice medicine. I’m a partner at the Lafayette Falls Childrens’ Clinic. I completed a fellowship in neonatology and I’m the medical director of the newborn nursery at the medical center. I love sports and I played college baseball. I live in a large log-and-stone house on a wooded lot in the country. I bought with the intention of raising a family there. After my divorce, I kept the house and now my cranky widowed father lives with me and my youngest brother, a frat boy/con artist, comes and goes.

Who is the significant other in your life?

After my painful divorce, I decided to take a break from love and serious relationships. That was before my life got upended by Lia Montgomery.

How do you dress?

I wear scrubs at work. Tee shirts and jeans at home. I like pin-striped dress shirts and slacks when I go out.

Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?

I live comfortably and I don’t really want for anything in the way of material items. My heart longs for what money can’t buy: true love.

What is your family like?

My mother, a nurse, has passed away. My dad, Frank, is a retired cop and he is very outspoken at times. I have three brothers. I’m the oldest. Two of my brothers live out-of-state and my youngest brother, Stevie, is still in college. He’s been in college several years now. Stevie is something of a con artist and I never know if he’s telling me the truth, but he’s fun to be with and I love him.

Do you have children?

No, but I am in the process of adopting an unwanted baby. I have always wanted children and I had hoped my wife and I would have a large family, but that wasn’t to be.

Now I have a second chance at having a son and I’m thrilled.

What past event causes you the most fear?

The day I came home and found a note from my wife. She had left. She loved another man whom she had been seeing and who was the father of the child she was expecting. I had no idea and I was shattered to lose her as well as the baby I thought was mine. I never want that to happen to me again.

Who in your life has the power to hurt you the most and why?

Lia. She’s Baby John’s aunt and when she arrives, everything in my world changes. All my plans for adopting John are in jeopardy because, well, she showed up during a bachelor party my dad was having for a friend. Needless to say, she got the wrong impression of me because I’d had a few drinks, the house was mess and we had several blow up dolls and porn on TV. She was horrified with me and the fact that I was single makes me totally unacceptable. Unfortunately, I am attracted to her, like love-at-first-sight, so I may be in trouble. You can read Chapter 1 to see what I mean.

Stressing Orol from Dark Flight @CynthiaSax #RLFblog #SciFi #RomanceToday we’re reading about Orol from Dark Flight by Cynthia Sax. Tell us about your book.

His mission. His challenge. His forever.

Orol, the Refuge’s second-in-command, has been given what he believes is a simple mission—escort two human females to the settlement. The winged warrior arrives at the meeting site to find one of the females missing and the other aiming a gun at his head. To rescue the first, he must capture the second. Once he has Rhea in his talons, however, he realizes he never wants to let her go.

Her enemy. Her captor. Her everything.

Rhea doesn’t trust anyone. She certainly doesn’t follow commands issued by a gorgeous flying male with glittering eyes, a beautiful face, and a seductive touch. Orol is dominant, edged with darkness, and determined to find her sister. Rhea will do anything to prevent that, even if it means playing sensual games of submission with her powerful enemy, seducing him into forgetting everything except her.

Dark Flight is a stand-alone Sci Fi Romance set in a gritty, dark world.

Today we’re reading about NarrAy Jorlan from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure by Kayelle Allen. Tell us about your book.

He’s a professional thief. She’s a by-the-book army captain. Do opposites attract? Oh, mercy!

Hired to steal back a prototype taken by the imperial armada, Senth Antonello retrieves it, but his brother is kidnapped to force Senth to surrender the device.
Now he has to rescue his brother, outsmart the armada, and keep the item out of imperial hands. All doable, except for one small problem. He must do it in the company of NarrAy Jorlan, a genetically altered woman whose pheromones could enhance the mission or crumble it into dust with a single siren kiss.

Stressing NarrAy Jorlan

Every heroine has a story. She has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a heroine and get to know her better, by focusing on how she handles being relaxed, as well as how she handles stress.

Age: 28

Birthplace: Tarthian Empire

Profession: Captain in the All People’s Liberation Army (a rebel)

Ethnicity: Better (an addictive, enhanced human)

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Human

The Heroine’s Relaxed Side

This heroine is at a party. Considering her story, describe the party.

NarrAy’s story starts out with her wearing a hot red party dress so she can fit in at a night club. She’s there undercover to meet and hire a professional thief. The place is crowded to the max.

How does the heroine feel about being this particular party, and what body language is she displaying that gives it away?

She is not happy about being there and stands above the crowd on a hotel balcony, her arms crossed while she taps one foot.

Is she more likely to mingle or remain aloof?

NarrAy is not shy, but because her kind is addictive, they are forbidden access in society. She stays away from crowds.

If she drinks, what is her drink of choice at this party?

She’s too aware of her pheromones and how they affect others to risk getting drunk. She drinks something that looks alcoholic but isn’t.

How much drink is her usual?

She sometimes has a glass of wine with dinner. That’s it.

The heroine figures out where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?

She’s avoiding anyone and everyone. Not only is her kind forbidden to mingle with others, they are not allowed to touch anyone either.

Is she likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is she the friend that others latch onto?

Others go stand beside her. She is the strong, silent type.

If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the heroine going to handle it?

Physically, she is tiny. However, all she has to do is release her pheromones and anyone in the vicinity will go glassy-eyed and slack-jawed. She’s not afraid of anyone no matter how big they are. Literally, no one can touch her if she doesn’t want them to.

Is the heroine the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?

She would do the tossing.

Will she know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of herself?

She’s often the first to leave, unless she’s meeting someone on a covert mission or op.

Stressing NarrAy from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure #RLFblog #scifi #romance

The Heroine’s Stressed Out Side

How does the heroine handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls her aside when she was blameless in a situation?

She’s meek and demure and does not argue. However, she will not allow herself to be detained unjustly. It’s not something she’s proud of, but she can overpower with her pheromones and use her voice to control others. If she’s angry, the combination can kill.

How does the heroine react to hearing a scream?

She seeks backup if possible, but if she can’t, she will still investigate.

If she sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses her mind?

Protect the person. Then punish the assailant.

If she sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing she does?

Take a second to assess the situation. She does not leap blindly into anything, but she’s quick to decide and once she has, she doesn’t pull back.

This heroine attempts to rescue someone and realizes that she is in over her head. The odds are against her and there is no way out. She is going to get her butt handed to her. What does she do?

NarrAy will use her pheromones and voice to take command of the situation. She avoids that if possible.

The heroine runs into the one person from her past she wanted to avoid. She can’t get out of the situation and must interact with him/her in some way. What does she do?

She gets stiff and formal, retreats behind a wall of polite iciness and waits for the person to leave. If it looks like they aren’t, she makes excuses for leaving and gets out of there.

Someone younger than the heroine is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the heroine deal with it?

She comes alongside, talks to them, and if she outranks them (she’s a captain, after all) she will direct them as to how to fix the situation and proceed.

The heroine is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does she tell herself in order to get through the situation?

Pain is fleeting. Honor is forever.

What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?

“Think, assess, and then act without regret.”

What lesson from her past gets her through a stressful situation?

When her parents were killed and their belongings confiscated by the Tarthian Empress, she considered it the worst day of her life. From the moment she heard what had happened, she knew she had to take back what was stolen and honor her parents’ legacy. She reminded herself daily, sometimes hourly, that she would make them proud.

Meet Ashley Drayton from My Rodeo Man by Bonnie Phelps @bonniephelps15 #RLFblog #contemporary Welcome Ashley Drayton from My Rodeo Man :The Texas Kincaids #1, a Contemporary Romance by Bonnie Phelps.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Zach Kincaid was definitely not what Ashley Drayton was looking for – one more risk-taking, bad boy to add to that long list of narcissistic, jerks who kept breaking her heart. Well, she was fed up. From here on out, bad boys need not apply. So how in the world had this cocky, confident cowboy charmed his way into her affections? She sure wasn’t going to succumb without a fight.

Ashley Drayton looked like the typical, spoiled Southern Belle that made Zach turn tail and head for the hills. As a champion team roper on the rodeo circuit and ranch owner, he sure didn’t need the complications a feisty, prima donna would bring to his life. When he finally did settle down, he wanted a woman strong enough to stand beside him in the hard-knock world of ranching and rodeoing.

Can a rough and rugged cowboy live happily ever after with a sassy and sophisticated socialite?

Introducing Ashley Drayton

Age: 28
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Charleston, South Carolina
Profession: Accountant
Ethnicity: White
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): N/A

Please provide a physical description of yourself. Ashely finger-combed her wild, curly locks that tumbled past her shoulders. “Physically? Big violet eyes, long black hair, curvy in all the right places – men look, so I assume I’m attractive. I’ve been compared to a Betty Boop doll. I’m short, but I prefer height challenged. When I run, people call me girly, which I interpret as they don’t peg me as athletic. I have a keen fashion sense and fantastic dresser.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

Single. Been engaged twice, but the last one is the one that opened my eyes. I thought Bill was ‘the one’ and shared my life with him completely. Even put him on the deed to my condo. Big mistake. The man took lying, cheating, scumbag to a whole new level. People say I’m too trusting. Given my history with men, that’s probably an accurate statement. I’m ready for a new start which is why I just moved to San Antonio, Texas to join my best friend, Lauren. I have a plan. No more being sucked in by the wrong man. The perfect day is one spent at the spa being pampered. I love to cook and whip up something fabulous in the kitchen. Maybe I should have been a chef instead of an accountant? But accountant was the safe choice and the one my parents approved. I have a thing for shoes, especially tall, spikey, kick-ass shoes.

Who is the significant other in your life?

I’m not sure he should be – I keep falling into that bad boy trap – but Zach Kincaid has tied up my heart as effectively as the steers he ropes on the rodeo circuit.

If we could only hear your voice (but not see you) what characteristic would identify you?

Bubbly, like fine champagne. That’s one of the things I wish I could change. People assume I’m an airhead and don’t see the strong, capable woman I really am.

What kinds of things do you always carry (in pockets or purse)?

I don’t travel light. In addition to the usual – wallet, phone, makeup and other touch-up essentials, tissues, and feminine products – a woman needs to be prepared for any contingency. Breath mints, hand wipes, an energy bar, pepper spray, hand cream, sun screen, a scarf, a collapsible umbrella, sun glasses, a first aid kit, and ear buds because you never know when you need to tune everything out.

What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?

That I will never find my soul mate. It’s not that I need a man to complete me, but I want someone to love me. I want someone to grow old with, to be there in good times and bad. I’m sure my luck has got to change one of these days, but that’s what scares me the most.

Who in your life has the power to hurt you the most and why?

My mother in particular, and my family in general. It would be nice if she could cut me some slack instead of constantly criticizing me and my choices. I’ve never been good enough for her. I think that’s why I spent so much time with Lauren’s family growing up. They always accepted me for who I am, loved me unconditionally, and made me feel special. No matter what mischief Lauren and I got in to, I always felt like I belonged. My family is the exact opposite. Cold, critical, unloving. I’ve come to the conclusion after so many years of trying to please them, that I deserve more.

What would you like people who hear your story to know?

Ladies, let me be your cautionary tale. Go ahead and love with all your heart, but hang on to your independence.

Welcome Tarrant Cooper from Drakon’s Prey, a new paranormal
romance.
Genre Paranormal Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Valeriya Azarov turned her back on the family business to
write and illustrate children’s books. But with a sister who leads the Knights
of the Dragon, it’s impossible to get away from the secret society whose
mission is to destroy and enslave dragons. When information falls into her
hands along with the opportunity to save at least one of the ancient creatures,
she can’t turn away any longer.
When a woman moves into the cabin above Tarrant Cooper’s
secret underground lair, he’s both suspicious and intrigued. He hasn’t lasted
four thousand years being careless, so when he suspects her of being a part of
the Knights, the plan is to kidnap her and find out how much the organization
knows about him and his brothers.
He’s drawn to Valeriya, but trusting her could get him
killed. Even if she’s a pawn in the war between drakons and Knights, giving her
his heart would mean forever.

Introducing Tarrant Cooper

Age: 4000 years, give or take a few
Gender: male
Birthplace: A small village in the Middle East that has long
since gone to dust.
Profession: I basically control the airwaves.
Ethnicity/ Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): I’m a
drakon, the son of a dragon and a human woman.
Please provide a
physical description of yourself.
In my human form, I’m 6’8″ with short black hair and blue
eyes. I have a tattoo that covers the entire left side of my body from my neck
to my ankles. It’s a birthmark and is a swirling pattern that is silver and
outlined in the same blue as my eyes.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a drakon. That means I don’t like to talk about myself.
The less people who know about my kind, the better.
Who is the significant
other in your life?
My Valeriya. She’s one of a kind and she’s mine. *growls
possessively*
Are you book-smart, self-taught,
widely-experienced?
I’m self-taught and widely-experienced. *laughs* I’ve been
around for a very, very long time. I’ve watched mankind go from mostly
illiterate to everyone having books and information at their fingertips. From
primate communication to now having a good chunk of the population walking
around with a cell phone stuck against their ear.
Do you get by, live comfortably,
live extravagantly?
I’m comfortable in my below-ground
lair. It has everything I need. My biggest expense is my computer equipment.
Money doesn’t mean much to me. I have more than enough for a hundred lifetimes.
And I can always make more.
Are you close to family?
I’m close to my brothers. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do
or no one I wouldn’t kill to protect them. And now I have my Valeriya. She’s
everything to me.
How well do you know your
neighbors?
*snorts* I don’t have neighbors. I live in an underground
bunker in the middle of nowhere. And that’s the way I like it.
What secrets do you know
about people around you that you do NOT share?
Nothing is a secret from me. Information is my passion, my
life’s blood. If it’s out there, I can find it. There is nowhere I can’t go
online. I mostly don’t care what people do as long as they leave me and mine
alone. If they don’t…
What are your biggest
hopes and dreams?
I want to destroy the Knights of the Dragon and live in peace
with Valeriya. The Knights have been hunting my kind for centuries and we’ve
mostly left them alone. This time, they’ve gone too far and I’m taking the hunt
to them.

your education.
I’ve lived four thousand years. I speak and write many
languages, including some long forgotten by time. I’ve learned alongside
mankind. Airplanes were a particular favorite invention of mine, as being a
pilot allows me to take to the skies nowadays when it isn’t as easy to simply
shift and soar. Computers I can use but I don’t particularly like them.
Do you get by, live comfortably,
live extravagantly?
I’ve lived for a very long time. I’m also an earth drakon,
which means I know how to find precious metals and gems. I’ve accumulated quite
a hoard over the course of my life. And like any self-respecting drakon, I
guard what is mine.
Are you close to family?
My brothers are my family and we are very close. We had
different mothers but the same dragon sire. Of course, now I have Sarah. They
all love her.
Can you keep a secret?
Why or why not?
Of course I can keep a secret. I’m a drakon. Of course,
telling all of you about myself isn’t exactly keeping that a secret.
What secrets do you know
about people around you that you do NOT share?
I know all my brothers’ secrets, but I would never betray
their trust.
What is your biggest need?
My biggest need is to wipe the Knights of the Dragon from
the face of the planet. They want to capture me and my kind for their own
profit and to prolong their lives by drinking our blood. We were content to
leave them alone, but they will not leave us in peace. And they threatened
Sarah and will always be a threat to her and to my brothers. They have to be
eliminated.
What are your biggest
hopes and dreams?
I dream of being able to live my life in peace with Sarah.
What is your biggest personal
flaw?
I have no flaws. *turns to Sarah* Stop laughing. She says I’m
set in my ways and stubborn. Overprotective too. But since I’m always right, I
don’t see that as a flaw.
Who in your life has the
power to hurt you the most and why?
Sarah has the power to destroy me. She is my heart. I trust
her more than I thought it possible to every trust a woman.
What would you like
to tell your writer?
I want to thank her for bringing Sarah into my life. I also
want to let her know this is my first and last interview. I’m done.

Every heroine has a story. She has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a heroine and get to know her better, by focusing on how she handles being relaxed, as well as how she handles stress.

About Eve Dangerfield

Eve has loved romance novels since she first started swiping

lovely sister and a rabbit named Billy.

About Taunt

Genre Contemporary Romance, Erotic, Thriller
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Daniel Schwartz never meant to uncover the apocalypse,
unfortunately for the Kiwi hacktivist, that’s exactly what happened. Yet while
it’s clear to her what she should do; cover it back up and get completely
smashed, the rest of the world doesn’t agree. A shady corporation places her in
a beachside prison where they promise to hold her until she agrees to talk.
Dani would be pretty annoyed if she weren’t:
a) Biologically incapable of being annoyed
b) Very intrigued by the men hired to guard her
c) Extremely hungover
John, Colt, and Seb have poured a lot of time and money into their private
security business the last thing they need is to waste six weeks babysitting a
hyperactive hippie. Sadly they’ve signed a shady but watertight contract. Each
of the three men finds himself drawn to the weird, pop-obsessed Daniel and she
to them. As they become entangled in each other’s lives Daniel is forced to answer
some big questions such as; how can you escape when there’s nowhere safe to go?
How can a commitmentphobe fall for not one, but three different men? And, most
importantly, should New Zealanders kick people who call them Hobbits? (Yes.)
Taunt is a heart-stopping erotic thriller; chock full of science, nail-biting
suspense, period jokes and good old fashioned lust.

The Heroine’s Relaxed Side

This heroine is at a
party. Considering her story, describe the party.
The party would be an outdoors event hosted by Daniel’s
eco-terrorist organization Grassroots. It’s a chance to connect and unwind with
other members and there would be live music, plenty of food and drink and a
casual dress code.
How does the heroine
feel about being this particular party, and what body language is she
displaying that gives it away?
Daniel would be thrilled to attend, bouncing around trying
to talk with as many people as possible while trying to peer-pressure others
into getting loose and making mistakes. She never stops smiling or talking,
unless she’s kissing that is.
Is she more likely to
mingle or remain aloof?
Mingle. Daniel loves being around others and more often than
not, the center of attention.
If she drinks, what is
her drink of choice at this party?
Daniel doesn’t drink as her biochemistry doesn’t allow for
it. She is however, very partial to substances of dubious legality. Also weed.
How much drink is her
usual?
Weed. Or fruit juice in glasses that make it look like
alcohol.
The heroine figures out
where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid
someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?
It would completely be to drag a shy friend, perhaps a
scientist or socially awkward programmer back into the fray. Once they’d been
brought back to the party she’d make it her personal mission to get them drunk
and laid.
Is she likely to latch
onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is she the friend
that others latch onto?
She is the friend that others latch onto; the bigger problem
can be maintaining her attention once you have it. Daniel is very distractible.
If someone picked a fight
at this party, how is the heroine going to handle it?
Daniel is, by her own admission, a lover not a fighter. As
Grassroots is a pacifist organization it would be kind of weird for a fight to
get out of hand at one of their parties, but if it did Daniel would probably
dump punch/cake on the offender’s heads and tell them to stop or she’d leak
their information to the Feds.
Is the heroine the one
most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?
Tossed out. For sure. No questions asked.
Will she know when to
leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of herself?
She will stay late as she possibly can (unless she picks
up). Being a nuisance is kind of Daniel’s wheelhouse.

The Heroine’s Stressed Out Side

How does the heroine handle
it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls her aside when she was
blameless in a situation?
Lies her ass off, says whatever she thinks they want to hear
then escapes at the earliest possible opportunity.
How does the heroine react
to hearing a scream?
Runs towards the sound without thinking.
If she sees someone being
assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses her mind?
What the actual fuck? Stop it you butthole!
If she sees someone
being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing she does?
Runs towards them and tries to break them apart, unless she
knows she’ll likely be hurt and overpowered in which case she would call the
cops/throw something/ find an alternative plan of action.
This heroine attempts
to rescue someone and realizes that she is in over her head. The odds are against
her and there is no way out. She is going to get her butt handed to her. What does
she do?
Fights as hard as she can for as long as she can, giving
everything she has.
The heroine runs into
the one person from her past she wanted to avoid. She can’t get out of the
situation and must interact with him/her in some way. What does she do?
Barrels into the awkwardness and tries to overwhelm the
person with the sheer force of her personality.
Someone younger than
the heroine is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly,
perhaps bungling things. How does the heroine deal with it?
Tact isn’t Daniel’s strong point. She would tell the person
straight up that they’re screwing the pooch and either suggest improvements or
conduct a mutiny to get the situation resolved another way.
The heroine is in
physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does she tell herself
in order to get through the situation?
Daniel has a rare chemical disorder that affects her ability
to feel physical pain, however she is capable of feeling distressed. In those
moments she closes her eyes and tries to focus on happy memories from the past.
What mentor’s words
come to mind in a bad situation?
She recalls John Blackwood, her lover, telling her to relax
and count her breaths, then she does it.

Today’s featured book is Deceit and Devotion by Faye Hall. 

Author Bio

These are the stories of Faye Hall.
Her passion driven, mystery filled books are set in North Queensland, Australia during the development of the townships at the end of the 19th century.

Faye finds her inspiration from the histories of not only the township she grew up in, but the many surrounding it. She also bases most of her characters on her own ancestors and their adventures when first migrating to Australia.
Faye was able to live her own passion driven romance, marrying the love of her life after a whirlwind romance in 2013. Together they are raising their 9 children in a remote country town in northern Queensland, Australia.

About the Book

Title Deceit and Devotion
Genre Historical romance / Interracial romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
“I will pay you to sleep with my wife.”
Jarrah Miyan, a young half-caste aboriginal man, is supposed to seduce a white woman into an affair so her greed-driven husband can gain full control of her inheritance, including the rare collection of black opals she keeps under lock and key. When he walks into the study to meet the poor chit he’s to take advantage of, he expects to find an aging woman who smells of stale perfume and gin. Who he finds though is the most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on—the same woman whose pale thighs had been wrapped around him just a few hours earlier as she’d begged him to give her pleasure.
After their night of passion together, Emily Holtz doubted she would ever see Jarrah again. To have him standing before her now, asking for employment at her cattle station, was not a situation she had prepared herself for. She agrees to hire him on one condition. He has to spy on her husband and get her the incriminating evidence she needs to apply for a divorce. She’s spent years in a miserable arranged marriage, and she’s desperate to escape. But her husband is a dangerous man, and he will stop at nothing, including murder, to get what he wants.
As they begin to develop feelings for each other, Jarrah worries about what will happen when Emily discovers that he’s been working for both her and her husband. Not that they could ever really be together, as society would never accept that.
Content Warning: contains sex, strong language, and some violence.

Jarrah would be being paid to attend and serve the wealthy guests alcohol.  He would also be required to ensure no fights broke out amongst the drinking guests.
How does the hero feel about being this particular party, and what body language is he displaying that gives it away?
Jarrah would be constantly on guard, knowing that he needed to remember his place as a worker.  He keeps his eyes lowered, knowing better than to try and look any guest in the eye.  His answers to any questions would be short and soft.

If Emily Holtz was at the party then Jarrah would stay as close to her side as was possible, ignoring any others that were there.
If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the hero going to handle it?
It would be Jarrah’s job to break up the fight, but he wouldn’t willingly get involved.
Is the hero the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?

The Hero’s Stressed Out Side

Jarrah automatically tenses, knowing that he made an easy scapegoat for anyone making trouble.
How does the hero react to hearing a scream?
It fills him with dread, and Jarrah would automatically go and investigate.
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses his mind?
If it were men fighting, Jarrah would instantly think they were fighting over a woman and he shouldn’t interfere.
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing he does?

Stressing the Hero from Dating an Alien Pop Star by Kendra L. Saunders.

Author Bio

Kendra L. Saunders is a time-and-space traveling fashionista author who writes books about magical, dark-haired men, interviews famous people, and suggests way too many bands to you via whatever social media platform she can get her hands on. She writes with good humor, because humor is the best weapon for a girl who can’t learn karate (or ballroom dancing).

About the Book

Title: Dating an Alien Pop Star
Genre: Scifi Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Daisy Kirkwood has only just escaped her small-town life and run away to New York City, the land of last-minute secret gigs at famous musical venues, when she’s kidnapped by aliens. Unfortunately, no one ever writes about how to handle alien abduction in those fancy NYC guidebooks.
Griffin and Dev are supermassively sexy aliens from a politically and environmentally troubled planet who arrive on Earth with very little knowledge about human ways other than what they learned from a wayward E! News signal. Their mission is to pretend to be the most influential people on the planet—English pop stars, of course!—and gain the help of a powerful secret society. Upon arriving, they abduct Daisy Kirkwood, a nerdy young woman who loves music but could seriously use a bit of help in the love-life department. Though Griffin and Daisy initially squabble, neither can deny the intergalactic sparks whenever they’re too close to each other. Together, they must face murderous aliens, cultural misunderstandings, bad backup musicians, and the dark side of fame and the media, all set against a tight deadline…
Part High Fidelity, part Bridget Jones’ Diary, part Doctor Who, Dating an Alien Pop Star is a sexy romantic comedy.

Stressing The Hero

Every hero has a story. He has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a hero and get to know him better, by focusing on how he handles being relaxed, as well as how he handles stress.

The Hero’s Relaxed Side

This hero is at a party. Considering his story, describe the party.
Griffin goes to many parties, because of being a famous pop star when he’s here on Earth, so I can definitely imagine him at a posh afterparty for some kind of music awards! It would be dimly-lit, well catered, packed with booze, and very, very lush and luxurious.
How does the hero feel about being this particular party, and what body language is he displaying that gives it away?
Excited to be in a room with famous faces he recognizes from his time studying Earth’s culture. A little nervous. Probably a little drunk. He would be twitchy and fluttery, but definitely smiling. And trying to watch what everyone is doing, so he doesn’t miss anything!
Is he more likely to mingle or remain aloof?
Mingle, for sure. In fact, he’d want to be the life of the party.
If he drinks, what is his drink of choice at this party?
Champagne. He loves champagne, and never realizes how much is too much until it’s too late.
How much drink is his usual?
Two glasses, at which time he’s buzzed and flushed, and probably giggly.
The hero figures out where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?
Griffin would want to drag his best friend Dev out into the party. Dev is a bit more reserved in groups of strangers, so he’d probably sit out most of the craziness. Griffin would want to make him join the fun!
Is he likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is he the friend that others latch onto?
Griffin usually latches onto one person, namely his best friend Dev, but he would still be able to pay plenty of attention to any and everyone around him. He has a capacity for paying attention to many people at once, even while holding Dev close like a safety blanket.
If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the hero going to handle it?
Griffin would most likely step in if he saw something happen that he deemed unjust or unfair. He’s empathetic and has a strong sense of morals when it comes to people getting bullied or mistreated, and he isn’t afraid to use his alien “powers” on Earth people if needed.
Is the hero the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?
Griffin wouldn’t toss anyone out of a party, but here on Earth, he wouldn’t be tossed out either. He’s too famous for that. But on some other planet? He’s been tossed out of a few places, sure…
Will he know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of himself?
Griffin will leave whenever he damn well pleases. He’s a pop star, thank you very much, so his timing is always perfect.

The Hero’s Stressed Out Side

How does the hero handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls him aside when he was blameless in a situation?
Griffin was raised as a prince on his home planet, and many times over his life, he’s been in danger. His first reaction to an authority pulling him aside is to believe that they are protecting him. If, however, he found out that he was being blamed for something he didn’t do, on Earth, he would remind the police that he is a famous pop star and insist on being released immediately.
How does the hero react to hearing a scream?
Griffin would perk up if he thought someone was in danger. He has empathetic healing abilities, so he reacts strongly to someone who is in pain or in need of help.
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses his mind?
“How can I help this person?”
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing he does?
Runs right into the fray, potentially getting himself in a dangerous situation, given he is slender and on the petite size, and not much help in a physical fight.
This hero attempts to rescue someone and realizes that he is in over his head. The odds are against him and there is no way out. He is going to get his butt handed to him. What does he do?
Gathers all of his energy together and focuses it on one last burst of power… this will either get him out of trouble or cause him to self destruct, but either way, it should stop the bad guy.
The hero runs into the one person from his past he wanted to avoid. He can’t get out of the situation and must interact with him/her in some way. What does he do?
Confronts them before they can say anything, and tries to act as brave and confident as possible. He probably fails.
Someone younger than the hero is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the hero deal with it?
Griffin wouldn’t pay much attention to age in a situation like that. If someone is doing a bad job, he would try to step in and help, regardless of their age. He is not an alpha male, though, so his version of stepping in would involve suggestions and offers to help, rather than forcing his way in.
The hero is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does he tell himself in order to get through the situation?
Griffin would remind himself of the people he loves most, and how much they need him. He would also think of his mother, who he lost as a child, and what would make her most proud of him to do.
What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?
“There is always kindness. You can always find strength in kindness,” Griffin’s mother’s words.
What lesson from his past gets him through a stressful situation?
Griffin remembers that his Mum had grace and dignity in the face of challenges, and he strives to be like her when he faces similar situations.

Zoe Sinclair from Coming Home by Rebecca Barber7.

Interview with Zoe Sinclair

This interview is designed for your hero or heroine to tell readers about himself or herself. Answer the questions as if the character were talking.
Tell us about yourself, please.
I’m no one special. My name is Zoe Sinclair and I live in Melbourne Australia. I grew up in a small town hours from here. My parents died when I was younger and now I’m all alone. The moment I graduated high school I left town and didn’t look back. I couldn’t. But leaving also meant I left my shattered heart in the hands of the boy I’d always loved, Spencer. I’ve lied to everyone. Any excuse to avoid going back there and facing what I know is waiting for me is just too hard. So I lie. Until now. This time I decided to go back and face the music. I don’t know why, but it just felt like it was time.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
My biggest inner doubt is that I’m worth it. I don’t think I’m worthy of someone like Spencer’s faith in my and his unwavering love. I’m damaged. I’m broken. The shell of woman. I find it incredibly hard to believe I deserve good things after going through so much.
Tell us about your significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
Spencer McLaren is everything. I’ve known him my whole life. I married him when I was four and he gave me a daisy chain necklace. He is the most frustrating, annoying, compassionate guy in the world. He does have a bit of a hero complex, but because of the way his ass looks in those jeans he wears everywhere, you tend to forgive him for that one. At 17 I knew he was it for me. No other guy could or ever would measure up to him. I looked, I really did, but no one was anywhere near as perfect for me as Spencer.
What would that person say about you?
Spencer would probably say I’m the most frustratingly stubborn pain in the ass woman he’s ever me. He loves me anyway though sometimes he forgets J He’d call me Pippi and tug on my hair, like he used to when he was five. He’d bitch and moan about my lack of care when it comes to looking after myself and he’d tell you that sometimes I’m moody and he has no idea why. But he’d tell you I was his best friend in the world and he always knew, despite everything else, we’d figure it out one day.
What is your family like?
I don’t have a family. I was an only child and my parents both died when I was way too young to say goodbye to them. Spencer’s mother Jenna became the closest thing I had to family. She loved me like I was her own. She’s my family now.
Why are you happy (or not happy) with the way your story ended?
I am absolutely devastated with how my story ended. I think the author actually hates me and did it to torture me. Although she promises all will be made up for before the series ends.

About the Writer

Rebecca, one of four kids to her parents who are both primary school teachers, was born in Wollongong on the south coast of Australia before moving to the country with her family. After a few years of embracing all that country life had to offer, the family relocated to Port Macquarie with its white sand beaches. After a brief period enjoying the sun and the surf they finally settled in Canberra where Rebecca still lives today. But all through her childhood a notepad and a book where never far away. These days Rebecca is an avid reader, and when she isn’t buried in a book or cheering on her beloved football team she’s spending time with her husband Robert and their overly spoilt dog Levi.
What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?
Letting Spencer and Zoe go. This was so hard in fact I didn’t really let them go off into the sunset in peace. Instead I wrote book 2 and 3 just so I didn’t have to say goodbye just yet.
When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you?
When I wrote Coming Home I was shocked by how completely emotionally draining this one was. It tore my heart to shreds and made me have more than one ugly cry moment. Even though I was the one who’d done it, I couldn’t stop it. The characters ran away with the story and I was merely a passenger.
Are any sequels planned for this book?
Absolutely! Book 2 and 3 are already written and will be released in 2017.
Why should readers who haven’t picked up one of your books before give this one a try?
It’s full of real emotion. Good, bad and devastating. It’s not your typical friends to lovers type book, its real.
Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers?
I sincerely, from the bottom of my heart apologize for the ending. My sister is still made about that 18 months after reading it for the first time. I promise, if you stick with the series I will redeem myself.
