Fifty Shades YA Boys: Something Strange & Deadly by S. Dennard

Fifty Shades of YA Boys continues today with Susan Dennard. Susan is here today to introduce us to Daniel. Daniel is the handsome and brash young man from Something Strange and Deadly. Susan was able to get Daniel to sit down and answer some questions for us to get to know him better. Something Strange and Deadly officially hits shelves next week. Read Emmy’s early review here if you want to know our thoughts on this book.

Thanks to Harper Teen, one lucky winner can win a finished copy of Something Strange and Deadly.

About Susan:

I’m a 28-year-old reader, writer, lover of animals, and eater of cookies. I used to be a marine biologist, but now I write novels. And not novels about fish either, but novels about kick-butt heroines and swoon-worthy rogues (I really like swoon-worthy rogues).

I live in Germany with my French husband and Irish setter, and you can learn more about my crazy thoughts and crippling cookie-addiction on Twitter, Facebook, or Goodreads.

You can learn more about Susan and Something Strange and Deadly at Book Website | Author Website

DFT: When you first (saw Eleanor) see a girl, what’s the first thing you noticed about her?

Daniel: Her hair. Bright gold beneath her bonnet. Er…I mean, I notice hair on women first–especially if they ain’t got it tied back. The way it lands on the curve of their neck.

DFT: A smart, handsome guy like you? I find it hard to believe Eleanor the first girl you met while attempting to save a city from a zombie horde. 

Daniel: There was someone else. Someone that… I’d rather not talk about it.

DFT: You’re very secretive. Does your mysterious past work to your advantage when it comes to getting girls? 

Daniel: Hmph. I don’t try to get girls. I got enough to do, what with the Dead and the ghosts.

DFT: I know you work a lot, but even you don’t fight zombies all the time. What sorts of things do you when you have a free time? And those nights spent inventing machines to battle the Dead don’t count as free time!

Daniel: I reckon I like to read…about machines, though. Or the newest breakthroughs in science. Land sakes, those Germans are always comin’ up with something new.

DFT: What’s the best relationship advice you’ve ever gotten? Had a chance to use it yet?  

Daniel: “Love isn’t enough sometimes.” I…well…I heard that from someone I try not to think about. Her words were true, though. Love wasn’t enough for us–does it feed you? Keep you dressed or protected? Naw. That’s why you gotta be realistic when it comes to wooing a girl. If you can’t give her what she needs, then it’s just selfish of you to try to be with her.

DFT: With your job it must be hard to imagine settling down, say in Philadelphia, but what are the top three things you need to live Happily Ever After?  

Daniel: A laboratory with unlimited supplies would be nice. As would a library packed full of science textbooks and recent publications. As for the third thing…well, Eleanor would be awful cute on my arm. Don’t tell her I said that, though. I can just imagine her snapping at me, “I am not cute and I rest on no man’s arm, thank you very much.”

DFT: Say you really like a girl (who’s name may start with E and end in Leanore). How are you going to do to make sure she knows?  

Daniel: I reckon I’d show her. No sense in telling her if she ain’t interested. I’d rather show her how I feel–by keeping her safe and supportin’ her–and then see if she ever comes around. Even if she doesn’t ever love me back, at least I protected her.

DFT: Do you get jealous if you see a girl you like with someone else? What would you do about it? 

Daniel: Oh yeah. I…I don’t handle jealousy so well. In fact, as a rule, I don’t handle my temper so well. I find the only way I can deal with my fury is to walk away. If some girl would rather be with someone else, so be it.

DFT: What sort of attributes do you look for in a potential girlfriend?

Sharp-minded is the first requirement. Then I’d say loyalty and grit. A gal willing to do whatever it takes for what she believes in–that’s a woman I want to share my life with.

All right, and a nice, curvy figure never hurt.

==============================================

Fill in the blank:

NOBODY KNOWS I AM: a romantic underneath it all.

I WISH I COULD STOP: Losin’ my temper all the time.

I’M A SUCKER FOR: voluptuous women and mischievous smiles.

A GOOD TIME FOR ME IS: spent in the lab or talking about inventions.

NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME IF THEY SAW ME: waltzing, but I actually do know the steps.

I’D REALLY RATHER: be reading or working in the lab.

THE FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING IS: put on my hat and stagger out for breakfast. Food is the most important start to my day.

KILL/FRAK/MARRY:

1. Kate Hudson — She ain’t really my type–I hate flirts. Of course, I’d never kill or…what’s the word? Frak her either.

2. Jessica Biel — She seems right appealing–all natural beauty and down-to-earth charm. I reckon I’d be interested in her if I ever met her.

3. Jessica Simpson — No. Just no.

One lucky winner will win a copy of Something Sweet and Deadly by Susan Dennard

Available July 24, 2012 from Harper Teen

About this Book:

The year is 1876, and there’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…

Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper—

The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.

And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother.

Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.
