Mating Games: Guardian Ranger by Cynthia Eden

February 18th, 2013 Kristie Posted in Mating Games 29 Comments »

Veronica Lane and Jasper Adams from Guardian Ranger are here today for their turn at The Mating Game! Guardian Ranger is the second novel in the Shadow Agents series by Cynthia Eden following Alpha One. Guardian Ranger was released on February 5, 2013.

Today’s giveaway is provided by Cynthia Eden! One lucky person will win a $20 Amazon gift card.

_________________________________________________________________________________

Hi, everyone! I’m so excited to be participating in this event!  The hero and heroine from my latest Harlequin Intrigue (GUARDIAN RANGER) are taking over the questions—so I sure hope you enjoy their responses. 

DFT: What did you think when you first laid eyes on your mate?

Jasper Adams (ex-Army Ranger, all around bad boy): That she was sexy as all sin…but I knew I was supposed to keep my hands off her. She was the mission. Missions aren’t about getting personal.

Veronica Lane (a good girl who so wants to do some bad): I thought he was the most dangerous man I’d ever seen—and I sure liked what I was seeing.

DFT: Describe your mate in three words.

Jasper: Sexy. Smart. Trouble.

Veronica: Strong. Deadly. Trouble.

DFT: What is the most unique place you have ever made woopie together?

Jasper:  One of my favorites was in the middle of a thunderstorm…all that lightning, that thunder…good times, huh, Veronica?

Veronica: Um, yes, very good. Same answer, please.

DFT: What would you do if you caught someone hitting on your mate?

Jasper: I’d be sure to hit him back—hard.

Veronica:  That would be the last mistake that woman made.

DFT: Describe how your mate smells to you.

Jasper: Like the sweetest sin.

Veronica:  Hope…well, if hope smelled masculine and hot so…maybe not hope.

DFT: Leather or lace?

Jasper: Leather.

Veronica: Lace.

DFT: What was the first thing that attracted you about your mate?

Jasper: Her legs…and her eyes. And her smile.  She’s got a great smile.

Veronica:  I was attracted b/c…I knew he could kick ass. I needed some muscle then, and Jasper has muscles to spare. I’m extra fond of them.

DFT: Foreplay or roleplay?

Veronica: I’ll answer for us both…um, yes, both.

DFT: Underwear – yes or no.

Jasper: I’d definitely prefer it if Veronica didn’t wear any. Wait, you mean me?

Veronica:  Yes. Just—yes!

DFT: What is the best decision you have ever made?

Jasper: Easy…taking Veronica’s case.

Veronica: Simple…hiring Jasper.

DFT:  Between the sheets or on top?

Jasper: Both. Either. Wherever I can get her.

Veronica:  How many more questions are there? Is it hot in here?

DFT: The hottest thing my mate has ever said to me is ________.

Jasper: I love you.

Veronica:  I love you. No more questions, please?

***

Thanks for checking out their responses! I hope that you enjoy a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Best,

Cynthia Eden

About this Book:

“Trust me.”

The Last Chance bar was Veronica Lane’s last hope. Desperate to find her missing brother, the sheltered computer programmer turned to Jasper Adams–the man she’d been warned to stay far away from. Veronica knew she was putting her life into the hands of the former Army Ranger, who aroused desire she had to resist at all costs.

Posing as a ruthless mercenary was a cover for what Jasper was really doing: hunting a killer. And Veronica was in the line of fire. The soldier-turned-elite-ops-agent knew he was playing a dangerous game–trying to win her trust while deceiving her about his true mission. What would happen once Veronica discovered that everything about him was a lie…everything except his passion for her?

Mating Games: Immortally Embraced by Angie Fox

February 17th, 2013 Kristie Posted in Mating Games 14 Comments »

Please welcome Dr. Petra Robichaud from the Monster M*A*S*H series by Angie Fox. Petra’s adventures began in Immortally Yours and continue in Immortally Embraced when the novel is released on February 26, 2013. Read Michelle’s review for Immortally Yours here.

One lucky winner will receive signed copies of Immortally Yours and Immortally Embraced!

_________________________________________________________________________________

DFT: What did you think when you first laid eyes on your mate?

Petra: I wished I would have remembered to wear my bra. You only get one chance to make a first impression and let’s just say I’d never seen anyone like him.

DFT: Describe your mate in three words.

Petra: Stone. Cold. Hottie.

DFT: What is the most unique place you have ever made woopie together?

Petra: We snuck up to the roof of a five-story walk-up in the French Quarter and did it on a hot summer night to the sound of jazz in the distance.

DFT:  What would you do if you caught someone hitting on your mate?

Petra: I’d smile while he turned her down flat. He only has eyes for me.

DFT: Describe how your mate smells to you.

Petra: Like warm, sexy man. Also a little like coming home.

DFT:  If you could have your mate dress in anything you want, and we do mean ANYTHING, what would choose?

Petra: Buck naked. Or wait. Maybe he can just wear *me*

DFT: Toliet paper, under or over?

Petra: Hell, I’m living in a M*A*S*H camp in limbo. I’m just glad when some practical joker isn’t trying to blow up the latrines.

DFT: Leather or lace?

Petra: Leather

DFT: What is your idea of a romantic date?

Petra: Sneaking off with some contraband wine and cheese and hiding out by the rocks beyond camp.

DFT: What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve done in front of your mate?

Petra: I took him to medusa’s baby shower. To be fair, I needed the protection.

DFT: What was the first thing that attracted you about your mate?

Petra: His sense of humor. Seriously. He’s the total package.

DFT:  What’s the worst gift you’ve given to your mate? Best? Worst?

Petra: The worst? Probably the time I gave him his combat boot back after I accidentally dropped the rest of his clothes out over the desert somewhere. The best? What I did while he was naked.

DFT: Apart from the obvious, which three parts of your mate’s body are your personal favorites and why?

Petra: His shoulders, his smart-ass grin, that little spot where his neck meets his collar.

DFT: Name the most annoying thing your mate does?

Petra: He always thinks he can take on the impossible – and he usually does.

DFT: Foreplay or roleplay?

Petra: Both.

DFT: Underwear – yes or no.

Petra: Yes. Well, except for forgetting the bra, but I’m working on that. And, frankly, I don’t have much to hide.

DFT:  What is the best decision you have ever made?

Petra: Deciding to become a doctor.

DFT: Between the sheets or on top?

Petra: Wait. Who needs a bed?

DFT: My mate tastes like:

Petra: a fantasy come true.

DFT: The sexiest noise my mate makes is

Petra: when he comes.

DFT: My mate’s sexiest article of clothing is

Petra: his combat fatigues.

DFT: The hottest thing my mate has ever said to me was

Petra: the moment he told me he never stopped loving me.

DFT: Porn movies or magazines?

Petra: Magazines. The MASH 3063rd only has one television and it’s in the cafeteria, so no, I don’t need to be showing everybody a movie.

DFT: Hot Summer days or cold Winter nights?

Petra: Hot summer days and nights

DFT: The quickest way to turn my mate on is by

Petra: running my fingers along the back of his neck.

DFT: What song would you put on to get your mate in the mood?

Petra: Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers

DFT: Would your mate rather have chocolates or flowers for Valentine’s Day?

Petra: Chocolate sauce. We can be very creative

DFT:  What was the most inappropriate gift you have ever received for Valentine’ Day? Who gave it to you?

Petra: My secret Santa gift. I mean, I know that doc I worked with at Tulane Medical Center was busy, but geez. Almost makes me glad I got drafted.

About this Book:

Even during a truce, Dr. Petra Robichaud has her hands full as the M*A*S*H surgeon to an army of warring gods—especially when Medusa herself turns up pregnant. Petra has no idea what to expect when a gorgon’s expecting, but she won’t let it turn her to stone. As the healer-hero of an ancient prophesy, it’s Petra’s job to keep the peace. But as the lover to a warrior demi-god, she knows how impossible some jobs can be…

Commander Galen is sexy, strong, and sworn to lead his team to hell and back. But when he announces to Petra that he can no longer risk her life for his love, the doctor is on her own…Until a mysterious new entity—in the form of a hot-blooded male—enters the picture. Can he be trusted? Can he be resisted? Meanwhile, an oracle delivers another prophesy that places Petra back on the frontlines with the man she may be bound to for eternity—in love, or in war…

Mating Games: Redemption by Erica Hayes

February 15th, 2013 Kristie Posted in Mating Games 20 Comments »

Please welcome Japheth and Rose Harley here today! Japheth and Rose are from Redemption by Erica Hayes. Redemption is the 2nd novel in the Seven Signs series and the novel will be released on March 5, 2013.

Thanks to Erica Hayes, we are giving away a $20 gift certificate to Amazon or Book Depository (Winner’s Choice)!

_________________________________________________________________________________

Rose: Thanks for having us! We’re stoked to be here. (elbows Japheth) Aren’t we?

Japheth: Whatever. Just don’t post my picture on Facebook, okay? I’m a bad-ass fallen angel warrior, not some guy from Masterchef or something.

Rose: Just ignore him, okay? Carry on.

DFT: What did you think when you first laid eyes on your mate?

Japheth: Well, she was pretending to be a helpless waif, lost in a vampire den. So I thought she was an idiot.

Rose: (snorts) Thanks very much.

Japheth: I didn’t know you were a vampire, did I? And you were bewitching me, in case you’ve forgotten. Trying to seduce and assassinate me. Ringing any bells? I was kind of distracted…

Rose: By your hard-on, you mean. Admit it, you totally thought I was hot.

Japheth: Lady, you were the sexiest woman I’d ever laid eyes on. Didn’t stop us trying to kill each other.

Rose: Not that fighting turns you on at all…

Japheth: That’s beside the point.

Rose: Right. Sure. I thought you were a self-righteous twat. A handsome, muscled-up self-righteous twat with hot golden wings and a fabulous ass, mind you. My worst nightmare…

DFT: Describe your mate in three words.

Rose: (grins) A hopeless romantic. It’s true. Never mind that whole bad-ass-warrior-for-heaven thing. Inside, he’s just a big bleeding heart with legs. And wings. Did I mention those?

Japheth: She’s perfect, perfect and perfect.

Rose: I rest my case.

DFT: What is the most unique place you have ever made woopie together?

Rose: We did it in Central Park once. But he’s shy, so I’m still working on those more exotic locations.

Japheth: I am not shy. I just don’t get why the fact that I can fly means…

Rose: That is exactly what it means. Have you no spirit of adventure?

Japheth: I have plenty. I also have a perfectly comfortable bedroom. With pillows, and a shower and stuff. Call me old-fashioned.

DFT: What would you do if you caught someone hitting on your mate?

Japheth: (laughs) Wait for her to beat the snot out of them. It’s not something I worry about.

Rose: Right. You’d just be mad as hell on the inside. If some bitch hits on my angel? Good luck to her. Did she bring an ice pick? She’ll need it. The words asshole ice prince don’t even begin to describe this guy when he’s not interested.

DFT: Describe how your mate smells to you.

Rose: Oh, wow. The way this man smells is one of the reasons I couldn’t resist him in the first place. Imagine me faking an orgasm right now and you’ll get the idea… oh, look, he’s blushing. That is so adorable.

Japheth: She smells like flowers. Or frankincense. Or something. I don’t know what it is, but it stands my feathers on end.

DFT: If you could have your mate dress in anything you want, and we do mean ANYTHING, what would choose?

Japheth: Moonlight.

Rose: Aww. What did I say about hopeless romantic? (scratches her head) Costumes kinda freak me out, actually. I was enslaved to a demon who liked to dress up, and trust me, he was a complete psycho… but I gotta say, that magical silver armor is a good look on Japheth. All that metal and bare skin… me-owww!

DFT: Toilet paper, under or over?

Japheth: What does that even mean?

Rose: C’mon, even bad-ass angel warriors have to go to the john.

Japheth: Actually, we don’t. Not technically.

Rose: Whatever. I’m an over girl, all the way.

DFT: Leather or lace?

Japheth: (smirks) Leather for me, lace for her.

Rose: Dude, you’d look hot in lace. You’ve got that whole blond altar-boy look going. A few frills, some see-through negligee…

Japheth: You should be so lucky.

DFT: What is your idea of a romantic date?

Japheth: Uhh. I’m not real good at that kind of stuff. Dinner and the opera, I guess.

Rose: (rolls her eyes) You are such a nerd. Actually, opera’s growing on me since I met you. I like all the murders and adultery and stuff. It’s like bad daytime TV.

Japheth: Whatever you say. You cried at the end of La Boheme.

Rose: Did not.

Japheth: And in Madame Butterfly. And…

Rose: Okay, shut up. You loved the mosh pit at Florence and the Machine. You even danced. True story.

Japheth: (winces)

DFT: What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve done in front of your mate?

Rose: Eat. It’s kinda messy for a vampire. Right after we met, I had to eat because I was starving, and… well, let’s just say I was mortified.

Japheth: Introduce her to my so-called friends. Dashiel and Trillium spent the entire evening telling her ‘the-day-Japheth-did-dumb-stuff’ stories. I’m centuries old. There are a lot of stories.

Rose: Ha! Like that time in that bath house in Constantinople, when you and the archangel Michael…

Japheth: Shut up. Just… no.

DFT: What was the first thing that attracted you about your mate?

Japheth: I’ve gotta be honest…

Rose: Actually, he does. He never lies. Afraid he’ll go to hell, or something.

Japheth: May I continue? Thanks. It was her legs. She was all huddled up and the legs were all I could see. Then I saw the rest of her. A beautiful vampire goddess, trying to seduce my soul. Sweet Jesus. I have never wanted damnation so badly. And that was before I found out how tough and courageous she is.

Rose: Thanks, baby. Well, you know. Look at him. I saw this insufferable jerk in that body, trying to kill me and send me to hell, and I’m like, ‘damn, why are the hot ones always either gay or homicidal?’ It wasn’t until later that I found out he’s the sweetest man on earth, not to mention up to his eyeballs in honor. It’s incredible.

Japheth: Uh, thanks. I think.

DFT: What’s the worst gift you’ve given to your mate? Best?

Japheth: I’m supposed to give her gifts?

Rose: He’s kidding. Sort of. He brings me flowers for no reason and then forgets Valentine’s Day.

Japheth: Why do I need a reason? Valentine was a greasy lunatic who got beheaded by the Romans. Where do flowers even come in to that? I don’t get it.

Rose: see what I’m dealing with here?

DFT: Apart from the obvious, which three parts of your mate’s body are your personal favorites and why?

Japheth: She has the most amazing lips. I just want to kiss her all the time. And there’s this cute little dimple, right at the base of her spine…

Rose: That’s only two.

Japheth: Yeah, but ‘wild dark eyes that stop my heart’ is overdone. I never said that.

Rose: For me, it’s his wrists. I could watch those muscles all day. Is that weird?

Japheth: (blushes) It’s not like I work out, or anything. Wield a flaming sword for a few thousand years and see what your forearms look like.

Rose: Bashful, isn’t he? He also has a spectacular ass. And those glowing golden feathers are… well, let’s just say, who needs sex toys?

DFT: Name the most annoying thing your mate does?

Rose: He’s so tidy. Always putting shit away. It drives me nuts.

Japheth: She leaves her underwear on the floor.

Rose: Usually because you put it there.

Japheth: Is that supposed to be an excuse?

DFT: Foreplay or roleplay?

Japheth: Foreplay. Long, slow, toe-curling foreplay. With feathers.

Rose: (faints)

DFT: Underwear – yes or no.

Japheth: See above. She puts it on, I take it off her. Works well.

Rose: He’s a naked-underneath guy. Totally hot.

DFT: Between the sheets or on top?

Japheth: You’re assuming we do it only once?

Rose: For a formerly sinless fallen angel, you have such a dirty mind these days. I sleep between, thanks.

DFT: My mate tastes like _______.

Japheth: Heaven. I know. I’ve been there.

Rose: A hot stormy sky. With added sweetness. It’s… unique.

DFT: The sexiest noise my mate makes is ___________.

Japheth: I love her laugh. Gives me warm shivers.

Rose: Well, there’s this totally hot purring thing he does, right when he’s about to…

Japheth: Way too much info. Thanks. Bye.

DFT: My mate’s sexiest article of clothing is _______.

Japheth: She looks hot in everything. Nothing. Anything. It’s not the clothes that are sexy, it’s Rose.

Rose: Correct answer. He’s a keeper.

DFT: Porn movies or magazines?

Japheth: Pass. I’d rather slaughter demons.

Rose: Oh, god, yes. After a hot sweaty battle against evil? He’s up for it all night.

Japheth: So? You like it.

Rose: Yes, I do (grins) I’m not into porn, either. I’ve had enough sordid meaningless fucking in my life, thanks. It’s not pretty. I’d rather read a good steamy romance. Not that I would ever tell anyone that (glares)

DFT: The quickest way to turn my mate on is by ________.

Japheth: Well, there’s this thing I can do with my feathers, right between her… Yeah. Excuse me while I take a cold shower.

Rose: Apart from the demon-slaughter thing? Attack him. He loves to fight. Also, he wants to watch me dance. I was a professional, so…

Japheth: the splits, guys. Enough said.

About this Book

Japheth the Tainted is on the hunt for a mysterious demon vampire. But meeting her face-to-face might disarm his warrior spirit—and spark an unquenchable passion with apocalyptic consequences.

As a fallen angel, Japheth is determined to make his way back to heaven by staying pure and slaying hellspawn. With a new scourge of vampires unleashed by a blood-drinking demon, the Prince of Thirst, there’s plenty to be done. But Japheth is after one vampire in particular—the one they call the Angel Slayer.

Rose Harley never wanted to be a vampire, but the Prince of Thirst can turn even the kindest soul into a soldier of hell. Feeling abandoned by God, she stalks the West Village taking revenge on his angels—until she meets her match.

When Japheth and Rose encounter each other, the battle is fierce and charged with desire. But when they discover a common enemy—the Prince of Thirst himself—they form a dangerous alliance that could either cost them their eternal lives, or spark a love more powerful than heaven or hell.

DFT: What is the most unique place you have ever made woopie together?

Drusilla: Hex you? Hmm. Speaking of unique places to make woopie, how about at your sister’s wedding. Where you passed out between my thighs?

DFT: What would you do if you caught someone hitting on your mate?

Falcon: Laugh and wait for the fireworks.

DFT: Describe how your mate smells to you.

Drusilla: Easy. Cotton candy. It’s the pink Cupid wings. Makes him taste that way, too. *wink*

DFT: If you could have your mate dress in anything you want, and we do mean ANYTHING, what would choose?

Falcon: That’s easy. Nothing.

DFT: Toliet paper, under or over?

Drusilla: We have cleaning gnomes and magick. I don’t worry about doing dishes, laundry, or toilet paper.

DFT: Leather or lace?

Falcon: Lace.

Drusilla: Leather. Doesn’t he look good in the red leather pants? Have to keep Cupid edgy and relevant, after all.

DFT: What is your idea of a romantic date?

Drusilla: Horror movies. I love playing I’m Scared Game and curling up into him, the adrenaline from being scared…

Falcon: Yeah, I like that one, too.

DFT: What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve done in front of your mate?

Drusilla: Oh Merlin. You would ask me this. The most embarrassing thing I think that he hasn’t inflicted on me himself was when Aunt Flo came to visit while we were making out. I ran to the bathroom and I had to ask him to look in my dresser for a pair of knickers since I didn’t have any on.

DFT: What was the first thing that attracted you about your mate?

Falcon: Why do I always get the hard questions? Any answer here is wrong. If I say it’s her bubbly personality, no one would believe me. If I say it’s her rack, I’m a douchebag. I can’t win here.

DFT: What’s the worst gift you’ve given to your mate? Best?

Falcon: Aha! An easy one. The best gift she’s given me is forever.

Drusilla: The question was the best gift you’ve given.

Falcon: Same answer.

Drusilla: And I can’t argue with that, because it’s true.

Falcon: We’re so gross.

Drusilla: Completely.

DFT: Apart from the obvious, which three parts of your mate’s body are your personal favorites and why?

Drusilla: His wings are my favorite because they sum him up perfectly. They can be soft when I touch them, and he really likes it when I touch them, but they can be sharp like armor too. All the things Falcon is. He’s a strong, sensual, but he can be sweet too. Did I mention they smell like cotton candy?

Falcon: You said besides the obvious. That’s all I’ve got.

DFT: Name the most annoying thing your mate does?

Drusilla: Getting him to admit he’s wrong is like changing one of the laws of physics.

Falcon: Pot and the kettle, my dear.

DFT: Foreplay or roleplay?

Falcon: You know, I’ll do just about anything she can come up with. If it revs her broomstick, I’m game.

Drusilla: I do enjoy that about him.

DFT: Underwear – yes or no.

Drusilla: No.

Falcon: Let’s not be hasty. You’ve got a couple little lace numbers—

Drusilla: That will last me until the end of time because I only wear them for five minutes until you rip them off of me.

Falcon: Isn’t that what they’re for?

DFT: What is the best decision you have ever made?

Drusilla: Saying yes when he asked me to marry him.

DFT: Between the sheets or on top?

Falcon: Depends on if the gnomes have made the bed or not.

DFT: My mate tastes like _______.

Drusilla: Have I mentioned the cotton candy?

DFT: The sexiest noise my mate makes is ___________.

Falcon: Screaming my name.

DFT: My mate’s sexiest article of clothing is _______.

Drusilla: The thigh holsters for his love guns. Hey, stop laughing. He doesn’t do the bow and arrow schtick, he has guns. That are use for… Fine. I give up.

DFT: The hottest thing my mate has ever said to me is ________.

Drusilla: “I’m okay.” I know, that’s weird. You just have to read our book to find out why.

DFT: Porn movies or magazines?

Falcon: Warlock pornography is different than mortal pornography. We’ve got 3D live action. But we’ve both had our share of pretty much everything flesh or fantasy have to offer.

DFT: Hot Summer days or cold Winter nights?

Falcon: Winter. You do not want to know how my work uniform chafes in the summer.

DFT: The quickest way to turn my mate on is by ________.

Drusilla: Breathing.

Falcon: *nods in agreement*

DFT: What song would you put on to get your mate in the mood?

Falcon: We’re not really music people. That’s more Ethelred’s thing.

DFT: Would your mate rather have chocolates or flowers for Valentine’s Day?

Falcon: We both have to work on Valentine’s Day. In fact, you could say that’s our seasonal rush. I’m sure she’d rather have a foot massage and a nap.

Drusilla: You know me well.

DFT: What was the most inappropriate gift you have ever received for Valentine’ Day? Who gave it to you?

Drusilla: Falcon gave me a copy of our book. I thought that was just tacky.

Falcon: I thought it was sweet, I mean, she got to see everything I went through, how I suffered for her. Tell me that’s not true love?

About this Book

GOT ANGEL?

Drusilla “Tally” Tallow does. Both fallen and otherwise because she’s got ten days of Heavenly and Infernal Parole after knocking Falcon Cherrywood from his broom. All she wanted was to settle down with a nice warlock, have babies, and grow old together. But she’s got a bad habit of falling for the wrong warlock. She blames Cupid. Too bad her Heavenly Parole Officer is none other than the heart bandit himself—the newly appointed Cupid and current fixture in all her fantasies, Falcon Cherrywood.

After smiting Cupid with a fireball, Falcon Cherrywood must now play the Diapered Archer. He can’t think of anything more humiliating than flying around in pink wings shooting arrows into hopeless fools. Archery was never his strong suit and Falcon doesn’t even believe in love. But more troubling are the feelings his sinfully irresistible parolee sets off in him—for only Tally has the power to make him believe in things better left to fairy tales, like Happily Ever After.
