What time do I want to live in? All of them, which is why I am hijacking this
There are just so many times to explore and I am not sure I’d actually would want to live in them. I remember reading a book where a modern woman travelled back to the Regency era. She was so excited to explore her favourite time until she opened the front door of the London house and got a whiff of the stench that must have been around during that time.
I imagine I probably would experience the same thing;). And a number of us have said it already: chances are I won’t be one of the rich and famous, but some minion who has a short, hard life.
So, instead I’ll travel with the Doctor (any of them will be just fine, but David Tenant would be at the top of my list), jump throughout time, save the universe every other day and not have to worry about making a living when electricity is not around.
My first trip will be to meet Her Majesty Queen Victoria and, like Rose, I will do everything in my power to have her say “We are not amused!”;). Other than that I’d hang out for a few days to do some research for my next steampunk novel, the sequel to Rescue by Ruin.
The next stop would be the future, maybe the year 2000 or 3000 (maybe all the way to the end of earth), just so see what’s happening and what has changed. After saving whoever we bumped into, possibly nearly falling into a black whole and fighting some ancient evil, I’ll take the Doctor for a drink and check out the bars around town. In Tangled Indulgence I introduced a bar, Indulgence, and a connected sex club, Lust. I am considering starting a new series set in Indulgence/Lust, which means I need to do some research…
After ticking both of those off my list I am pretty much open to any time. It would be nice to see the pyramids and meet the Incas before their civilization was destroyed. I wouldn’t mind seeing a true samurai or a cowboy.
That’s me, footloose and fancy free and accompanying the Doctor. If you’re a Whovian like me, what is one of your favourite episodes and in what time period does it take place?
I’m supposed to talk about award winning movies. I love the movies, but very, very rarely have the same opinions as the people who decide who wins the Oscars. I enjoyed “Silence of the Lambs” and have devoured “The Return of the King” more often than is probably healthy. But I haven’t seen any of the winning movies for a very long time. I don’t really think “My Fair Lady” (1964) really counts.
So, instead of trying to say something interesting about a film, I’m going to give away some books:).
Tangled Indulgence, book 3 in my Celestial Surrender series, came out yesterday.
Reassigned to the nether-end of the galaxy and facing her last night on the planet, Adira has had better days. She shouldn’t have ruffled so many feathers with her investigation, but the trail of missing people was too important to ignore.
She knows exactly how to spend her evening. At an exclusive sex club, she’s determined to confront the Vampire who’s never far from her mind. She only has a few hours, but surely she can entice the sexy bartender to share them with her.
Malachy is more than he appears. Working undercover has him ready for anything… except Adira. The moment he laid eyes on the Sentinel he knew he’d found his lifemate. Unfortunately, the prickly mortal has a wall as hard as a spaceship’s hull around her heart.
Only hours remain to convince her she belongs in his arms, and his bed. As the heated night turns molten, duty and desire collide. Following their hearts will only complicate matters.
Inside Scoop: Our heroine gets the shock of her life when she discovers her voyeuristic nature, and the fact that it is the male-on-male action, as opposed to a ménage, that really gets her juices flowing.
Adira has a bit of an eye-opening experience, learning something unexpected about herself. If you’d asked me six months ago I would have told you I am a dog person, no question. Now, after a few months with my lovely Emma, I have to say I am a ca-do person. If I’m ever in the position to look after a dog with my job and everything, I will add one to my family. But am seeing a cat in my future for a considerable time;).
Tell me when you’ve realised something about yourself that surprised you. Tell me in the comments here or here. The first winner, chosen by numbers.org, can choose any of my four books in your preferred eformat, and the second winner receives a copy of Tangled Indulgence. Tell me about the moment you discovered you enjoy deep-fried brussel sprouts or the moment you discovered you like being tied up in bed. Your choice;)! The contest is open until Thursday 7th March.
Enjoy your weekend!
