Beth Kery Completes the Sentences…

Today I am delighted to welcome back Beth Kery to the blog!
Beth’s latest release, Daring Time releases today!

 Here’s some info on the release…daringtime150x225

 “A hauntingly beautiful and enduring love story.”
— 5 Bookmarks from Wild on Books

 He sees her, wants her, needs her…
Chicago Detective Ryan Daire has many secrets: a love for Shakespeare, an appreciation for the all the finer things in life, and an absolute lack of restraint in the bedroom. Now he has an even bigger secret. In every shifting shadow of the sprawling mansion he’s recently inherited he can see her—tempting, ethereal, and untouchable. Hope Stillwater inhabited that mansion in 1906. Raw desire has formed a conduit between these two passionate souls who are separated by the barrier of time.

Now he has to have her.
Intoxicated by each other’s presence, Ryan and Hope are closer than ever to crossing that inviting boundary between two worlds. But there is one grave danger: Ryan’s job has put him on the trail of a depraved criminal in an investigation that’s risking Hope’s eternal fate and happiness. Now he must do whatever it takes to change history, protect Hope from harm, and set his own desires free.

Beth was kind enough to complete the sentences for us today.   So here’s a little insight into Beth Kery…

I am Beth Kery

I like many things, but a few are a hot bath with scented salts, candles, fashion, art and books that are so romantic they take you to another place for a precious period of time.

I love my husband, writing and living life to the fullest.

I dream of writing the perfect romance…whatever that is. 🙂

I wish that I could eat all the carbs and chocolate I wanted and never gain an ounce.

I wonder how I could have such a rational, scientific brain and love romances so much.

I pretend that I’m not shy a lot of the time.

I know my own strengths and weaknesses, but I still know there’s more to learn. 🙂

I fear…hmmmm, catastrophe. I never fear classic things, like demons, aliens or ghosts. I just fear those awful, unexpected tragedies that inevitably strike many human lives.

I worry about being able to write my next book. Maybe the others were a fluke?

I appreciate when people are kind—giving an unexpected smile or a cheerful word. I can’t tell you how much it changes my day when someone chooses to smile instead of snarl.

I hope that my books reach the people who would really like them.

I look like I’m happy at this point in my life. I hope I look like it, anyway, because I am.

I read to treat myself, and to calm down after a hectic day.

I want so much. I just hope my wants are reasonable to my strengths, skills and luck.

I need not a lot. My husband, my computer, peace and quiet, my family.

I will more than likely be extremely nervous on May 5 when Daring Time releases and also on May 6, when I do my first book signing at a Barnes and Noble in Chicago’s loop.

 I can memorize people’s faces and the things they tell me almost perfectly, but I’m awful at recalling names.

 I think too much.

 I have never traveled to Egypt even though I’ve always wanted to.

I dance to have fun, but it’s great that I get to burn off so many calories while doing that!

I wish I had thought of poise speaking in public.

I cannot live without my air purifier. Not because it purifies the air, but because it’s my white noise maker. I live in the city, and it’s an absolute must. The city sounds would drive me crazy otherwise.

I am happy when I finish a book. Best feeling in the world.

I would like to meet Barack Obama, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, Chris Cornell. I wanted to meet author Larissa Ione, and I got to meet her at RT recently. *grin*

I am annoyed by rigid routines.

I have always wanted to be an author.

I encourage people to think outside the box, take off the blinders and find ways to make their dreams a reality.

I think it would be cool if I could travel long distances without having to get on a cramped plane. (I’ve been getting more and more nervous about flying recently. Don’t know why.)

I love to lay in bed and read or write when no one is looking.

I write romance because it offers a wonderful escape.

I would love to know what readers think when they finish one of my books.

 Thanks Beth!

  26. Beth Kery says:

    Hi all! It rained something awful in Chicago’s loop just before my signing, and most people were rushing through B & N as a means of not having to walk on the street. I still had fun, because my husband was there the whole time, and Julie James dared the flood in her neighborhood in order to come. Awesome.

    Thanks for the good wishes, everyone. (Hey, Ms. Fi!)
