Thank you, Wendy, for graciously agreeing to host me today. I was grateful—until I received your specs, at which point, *PANIC ATTACK*
Wendy said she wanted a post about ‘Heroes’. Smiling…well, grimacing, I withdrew. To the corner of an unlit room. Much whimpering and nausea-inducing rocking ensued.
Sure, heroes are expected to have flaws, but I wasn’t convinced Wendy was ready for the uncivilized. You see, I write dark heroes. The alpha bastard type. Rough, tough, hard. Arrogant, super-bossy, selectively deaf (if they don’t want to hear it, they ignore it).
I thought that was all men. ;-)
You might be right! But these guys don’t cuddle, they crush-hug. Kissing’s less an exploratory advance and more a shocking surprise plunder. Everything about them is harsh--their behavior, their souls, their past, and their present. In their defense, the world in which they live is dark…tunnel dark. Special Agents (British Intelligence), especially those tasked with all things ‘plausibly deniable’ don’t live in the light, they daren’t. Not when a chance beam of illumination (enter the heroine) might force them to confront the type of men, deep down, they would rather be…if only they knew it.
Darth Vader had a soft side: he loved Padme. Don't think I'd want to kiss him, though. Although... then again... Anakin... :-)
You're just going to have to trust me on this, Wendy. :-)
HARD TO FORGET can best be summed up with two quotes:
He didn’t want her forgiveness. What the hell would he do with it? Jack Ballentyne
Protective Custody? What’s that a euphemism for, exactly? Lowry Fisk.
Oh my! What big guns he has. :-)
Full details…blurb, buy links, even a free sample (Chapter 1) can be found here.
And a little birdy tells me it's actually out TODAY! Hurrah!
And you are heartily welcome to connect with me, Incy Black, at the following places:
Thank you, Incy, for joining me today and thanks to @MattiasFahlberg for letting me use his art work with the sexy Darth up the top. I'm afraid I haven't quite been converted to the dark side. I still like myself a tortured good guy really, but I may just have to buy this book. :-)
