So as I mentioned yesterday, today I have a very special interview with a couple of characters from the books of Tawny Weber.
My guests today are Belle Forsham from COMING ON STRONG and Sierra Donovan from GOING DOWN HARD
Jennifer: Hello! And welcome to my blog. I am so glad you two could join me today. I am going to be chatting with your fellows tomorrow, but I thought I’d talk with you two first. So how are you doing?
Belle: Mmm, fabulous. I’ve been supervising a big event at Mitch’s resort and it’s going great. I just love how the country air agrees with me.
Sierra: Agrees with your sex life, you mean? Do you even go outside?
Belle: Hey, we do it outside sometimes.
Sierra: I doubt that’s what Jennifer meant. *rolls her eyes*
Belle: Well the air must have agreed with you, too, seeing as that’s where you and Reece first…
Sierra *interrupting*: Well, that’s enough of that fresh air talk, hmm. Jennifer, we’re both great. Thanks for asking.
Jennifer: *blushes* Um…that’s good to hear. Anyway, I hear that your stories have recently been published in books. How do you two feel about that?
Belle: I love it. The more exposure, the better, you know?
Sierra: Oh, I don’t know about that. I think I was exposed a smidge more than comfortable.
Belle: Well, yeah, that creepy jerk stalked you with pictures. I’m so glad Reece was there to protect you.
Sierra *with a wicked grin*: I’m lucky for Reece for so many things.
Belle *her grin just as big, but smug*: And you have me to thank, of course.
Sierra: You could probably claim that about everything, you know.
Sierra: *rolls her eyes again*
Jennifer: Belle, can you tell us a little about how you met Mitch?
Belle: Which time? The first or the one that worked? Both? Okay, well the first time, it was lust at first sight. I mean, Mitch is the yummiest guy on earth, you know? And there he was, my daddy’s newest VP. I’d have given anything to be with him. What he asked for, though? Wild *shaking her head*
Sierra: Some guys want your virtue. Crazy Mitch, he wanted her hand in marriage.
Belle *laughs*: Well, let’s just say that didn’t quite work out. I saw him again when he contacted me about a job. He had this posh new resort opening, but needed an event organizer to kick off the grand opening. My sweetie, he’s a little uptight at first, so he resisted my some of my more adventurous ideas at first.
Sierra *clarifying*: For the resort.
Belle: Oh yeah, that too. But I brought him around to my way of thinking. It just took a little persuasion.
Sierra: Is that what you call it? Persuasion?
Jennifer: Well, I am glad things seemed to work out for you despite the rough start. What about you Sierra, how’d you meet Reece?
Sierra: Well, like Belle said, it was her fault *grinning*. I met Reece the first time at her wedding rehearsal. That’d be the one she ditched, by the way. Six years later, with all the problems Mitch’s resort was having, he called Reece in to help out. Reece is a security specialist. I was there working on the resort’s grand opening with Belle and, let’s just say sparks flew whenever Reece and I were in the same room.
Belle *interrupting*: Understatement of the year.
Sierra *ignoring her*: Reece and I had a few, let’s just say encounters. Then he was supposed to go back home. But Belle, here interfered with that.
Belle: Oh, like I arranged for a freaky photo stalker to obsess with you and send those pictures?
Sierra: Hardly. But you did arrange for a lurking sexy cowboy to guard my body.
Belle: I’m still waiting for the thank you card.
Sierra *ignoring her*: We had to assure our client that the stalker situation wouldn’t interfere with their event. Hence, Reece hiring on as a bodyguard. Things got a little… interesting after that.
Jennifer: Sounds like it. So let’s talk about your guys for a little bit. I have to say that it seems like you both have hit the jackpot with the two of them. I take it things are going well for all of you now?
Belle: Oh yeah, things are great. My wedding is in two weeks.
Sierra: Second wedding.
Belle: This one will actually happen though.
Sierra *laughs and nods*: Yep, it will. Which means my immediate plans include wearing my blackmail bridesmaid dress.
Belle: I wouldn’t have dressed you in fuchsia, you know. You didn’t have to threaten to make me wear puce in your wedding if you didn’t get to choose the color.
Sierra: When it comes to pink, I won’t take any chances.
Jennifer *laughs*: I can’t say I blame you. Let’s have a little fun. Can you describe your guy using only three words?
Belle: Talented, intense, successful.
Sierra: Stubborn, opinionated, sexy
Jennifer: What is your favorite thing about your guy?
Belle: His sense of humor
Sierra *laughs*: That’s what you call it?
Belle: Is your answer any different about Reece?
Sierra: Hmmm, good point. Reece does have a great sense of humor. But I think it’s his absolute loyalty that does it for me.
Jennifer: That’s nice. You have to love a guy that has a great sense of humor and is loyal. As I mentioned, I’ll be chatting with them tomorrow, is there anything I should ask them?
Sierra: Ask then what they’re buying us for being so sweet and circumspect in this interview.
Belle: Oh yeah, I like that. But that was due more to Jennifer’s blog being PG than it was to the guy’s request that we behave.
Sierra: Good point. I still want a present, though.
Jennifer *laughs*: I’ll keep that in mind. Your guys sound like they are getting impatient, so, before I let you two go is there anything you’d like to ask my blog readers?
Belle: Yes, I’d like to know how much say they let their bridesmaids have in their dress color. I mean, that color determines the scheme for the rest of the wedding.
Sierra: Or if you’d like to ask them a real question, ask them what they think of back to back books. Is that a plus or minus for their reading habits? Have they ever picked up the second book in a series and gone back to read the first because they just had to know what happened?
So there you have it folks…my interview with the heroines of Coming on Strong and Going Down Hard.
Be sure to check out the books and to return tomorrow when the guys have their turn in the hot seat.
In the meantime, how about answering their questions for readers…
