Mating Games: Going Under by Lauren Dane

Please welcome Gage Garrity from Going Under by Lauren Dane. Gage is here to tell us all about Molly Ryan! Going Under is the third book in the Bound by Magick series. This novel was released yesterday, February 5, 2013. This is an awesome series, go pick this novel up today!


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

Gage: I wanted to be suspicious of her. She was an outsider, after all. But all I could think of was how pretty she was. She was nervous, but full of fire too.

DFT: Describe your mate in three words.

Gage: Powerful. Beautiful. Forever.

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

Gage: She’s irresistible so it happens from time to time. She only has eyes for me, which usually means I don’t need to punch anyone.

DFT: Describe how your mate smells to you.

Gage: Lavender and roses. But when she’s turned on? There’s a little pepper thrown in.

DFT: What is your idea of a romantic date? 

Gage: Any block of a few hours when people aren’t trying to kill her is a good start. Add alone and no clothes and that’s really perfect.

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

Gage: She’s beautiful, yes, but she stood up to one of the strongest witches I know. It was the fire in her eyes and the steel in her spine that snagged my attention.

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

Gage: She’s got great hair. It’s soft and smells really good and she has all these pretty pins and fasteners to put it up.  Her eyes are beautiful and when she’s dealing with people she doesn’t like you can’t always tell by her facial expression, but her eyes, man, she narrows her gaze just a little, like an annoyed school teacher, it’s really hot. And her ass. I know you said not the obvious, but man, she’s got a great butt.

DFT: Name the most annoying thing your mate does?

Gage: Molly has a horrible habit of putting herself in danger over and over. I wish she’d stay safe inside all the time, but her job has her out and about, exposed to people who want to hurt her.

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

Gage: Loving Molly.

DFT: Between the sheets or on top?

Gage: Wherever I can get her, as often as I can.

DFT: My mate tastes like _____.

Gage: magick

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

Gage: I love it when she’s all dressed up in a suit because I know she’s all mine underneath.

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

Gage: Here’s something I never would have suspected, but Molly has a thing for seventies rock and roll. So I’d put on some  Led Zeppelin, The Rain Song.

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

Gage: She’s a sensual woman so she loves orange dark chocolate, or Turkish delight with rosewater.


About Lauren:

The story goes like this: While on pregnancy bed rest, Lauren Dane had plenty of down time so her husband took her comments about “giving that writing thing a serious go” to heart and brought home a secondhand laptop. She wrote her first book on it before it gave up the ghost. Even better, she sold that book and never looked back.

Today Lauren is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over forty novels and novellas across several genres. Though she no longer has to deal with Polly Pocket and getting those tiny outfits on and off, she still has trouble blocking out the sound of iCarly so she can write a love scene.

You can visit Lauren around the web here: Website | Blog | Twitter | Facebook

About this Book:

“Lauren Dane always delivers a steamy, exciting ride,”* and she does it again in her new novel of two lovers fighting for their lives against a rising threat, and a passion that’s just as dangerous…

In the wake of the Magister’s rampage, chaos rules. Left reeling, the Others and the humans scramble to create a some sort of unity in the face of growing unrest and violence from anti-Other hate groups federation—and ruthless PR guru Molly Ryan is the witch who can do it. She grew up in the human world but there’s nothing left for her there. She’s lost her PR firm, her friends and she’s decided to put all her fight toward aiding the Others in this dark, new reality. If there’s anything left for her there, she’s going to fight for it. But Gage Garrity, one of the few Others who survived the massacre, fears that the crusade will expose Molly to greater dangers than ever before.

Now, together, with magick on their side, they’re on the road in a desperate struggle to unite a torn world. From state houses to television news to legislative conference rooms across the country, they’re fighting the good fight. And it’s bringing out a passion in both of them they never expected—one as volatile, intense, and all-consuming as their relentless battle for world unity. A battle that could be their undoing…
