I'm very excited to have not one but two of my favourite authors on my blog today. I just know that any book written by these two lovelies will be fabulous.
Nikki and Shyla are here with a character interview to make your toes curl - Enjoy!
First we want to thank Doris for having us over. Today we thought we’d do something a little different and let our characters do the talking. We’ve had so much fun spending time with them. We just knew you would too. * winks.
Rafe and Sanura sit side by side completely engrossed in one another, though their attention is on us. He can’t keep his hands off her. He’s constantly touching her hand or stroking her skin. It’s endearing, and deserved after all the duo went through.
1.“Rafe, how about we start with you today? What’s your most distinguishing feature?” He glances over at us with smoldering brown eyes and grins. The flash of white stands out against his caramel skin. A delicious blend of Native American and Latin ancestor the man exudes sexy in waves.
“If I told you that, I’d have to show you, and my lady, she wouldn’t appreciate it.” His teasing tone is lightly accented. Nikki and I clear out throats before we move on to a safer question.
2. “What’s your favorite part about being a shifter?”
"I love being able to release myself from human emotions and just be the animal that we all have lurking on the inside." Rafe placed his hand on Sanura's thigh and he squeezed gently. "It is a primal feeling and it's made even more potent that I can share it with my lover and friend."
These two are seriously releasing pheromones into the atmosphere, but it’s sweet. So we let them get away with it.
3. “If you were granted three wishes what would you wish for?”
Rafael chuckled, "Truth be told my wishes have already been answered in the form of Sanura and being co-pride leader with her. The last thing that I make sure to work on with her on the daily...", he flashes a full grin, "Is our starting our own little pride."
4. “What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done and why? “
His eyes turn unfocused and he looks away. “ I harmed someone when I shifted un intentionally. Though it wasn’t my fault, its my biggest regret.” Sanura flashes us a look that tells me its time to move on.
5. “What do you want from Life?”
Sanura spoke up first and gave a soft purr as Rafael picked her hand up and kissed the back of her knuckles. "In all honesty I have what I want out of my romantic life with Rafael. He is everything I've ever wanted. As for the pride I can say that Rafe and I want our people to be brought into this century and to thrive."
6.” What’s your worst vice?”
Her eyes flicker toward Rafe. We can’t say we blame her. He’s luscious and exudes a sensuality that makes you bite the inside of your cheek and press your thighs together to keep from squirming. “I don’t know if I’d call it my worse vice, but its hell on my diet. Chocolate. Anywhere anytime, drizzles, dipped, coated on something or in a solid form. I can’t get enough.” We have a feeling that’s not all she can’t get enough of.
7. “What did you learn during your journey with Rafe?”
That if it’s real, love can endure anything and two people can find their way back to one another.
8.” Last question, Sanura. Tell us, What are you plans for the future of your people?"
Sanura is still looking at Rafael after his last answer, there is smile on her full lips. "The plans for our people is to make sure that they thrive and survive in this century and beyond. I expect part of that would be...to bring our own into the pride at some point as well." Rafael gave a growl and pulled Sanura up into his lap and kissed her hungrily.
And there you have it ladies and gentleman, the sexy, intelligent, driven duo from, The Bond.
Sanura Bast is willing to risk everything to keep her Pride of Pumas safe from Logan’s scheme to sell their land off to the highest bidder, including masquerading as his fiancée. After almost a year playing a role that disgusts her, she gets the intangible proof she’s been looking for. Desperate to end the charade, she turns to her ally, Rafael.
Banished for losing his control with a human, Rafael’s been looking for a way back to his Pride and to Sanura ever since. The woman set his blood on fire before she was old enough to accept what he wanted from her. Together they plot to stop Logan before he becomes chief, and now she has the proof they need to save her Pride. With that goal in sight, Rafael is ready to take what’s always been his and claim Sanura as his own.
