Hello, Tara! Tara and I have a few things in common: we both love romance, we both are studying Italian and hate noun declensions when the noun is feminine and ends with “e”, and we both have new books out from Liquid Silver Books. Since we share a book birthday, I’ve invited her over to brag a little and talk about “Catching Red” and other things.
1. Who is your Book boyfriend?
As my GoodReads buddies all know—I have long since laid clam to Jason from Nalini Singh’s Archangels Storm.
2. Which is the most romantic monster – shifter, vampire or zombie?
Oh dear, I can’t pick an Angel? [No-angels are too… angelic. I’m talking bad boys. Plus, I’m more of a Dmitri fan myself 🙂 ] Hmm…Sorry Jason—I’ll have to ask your vampire pal (Venom) to escort me instead. There’s something about blood, sex, and snake-like eyes that makes a girl’s heart flutter.
3. Pirates or ninjas? Defend your choice!
I’ve been playing a ton of Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, so I’ve developed a fondness for Edward Kenway. Besides, I’ve always wondered what it’d be like to get hot and heavy on the open ocean. This pirate has a ship (which I have painstakingly upgraded).
4. For Valentine’s Day – chocolates, flowers, both or something else?
*ahem* Honey, if you’re reading this, I’ve heard wonderful things about the new Kindle Paperwhite.
[Hold on, let me highlight that for you.]
5. What is your favourite exchange from your story?
I was having so much fun I forgot I’m here to promote a book. Okay, a bit of work is in order. I’ll leave you with this snippet –
“You don’t have to worry about me, Red. Until you’re in fighting shape, I promise to be a perfect gentleman.”
She frowned. “What’s a gentleman?”
Marcus took note of the odd question but decided to shelve his curiosity for later. “In this context, it means I have a rule against taking advantage of helpless females.”
Her lids lowered. Thick russet lashes fanned over her cheeks. After a moment’s pause, she glared at him. “Touch me, and I’ll stab you in the neck.”
Here’s some more information about her new book Catching Red
Scarlet “Red” Ryding is on a mission. To prevent mass suicide, she must fulfill her grandmother’s evil wishes and return posthaste. With knives in hand, she dives headfirst into an abandoned hospital full of zombies. But after getting trapped within, she is forced to accept help from the world’s most dangerous predator—a man.
Covert Agent Marcus Woodsman received strict instructions against interfering in the affairs of nomads. As a spy for the Federal Military Agency, his mandate is to observe and report. But when he finds a little redhead caught in the center of a brain-eater swarm, conscience compels him to put his ax to good use. By the time he realizes this smart-ass scout comes equipped with a world of trouble, it’s too late—he would do anything to keep her safe.
As Red and her Woodsman work together to survive undead, brave a snowstorm, and bring down an evil cult, they learn to laugh, love, and fight for happiness. The second book in Tara Quan’s Undead Fairy Tales series, Catching Red is a post-apocalyptic thriller with a happily ever after.
