ReaderGirls welcomes author Stacey Kennedy who was gracious enough to stop by and talk to us about her latest ebook, A Warrior's Witch. I was fortunate enough to hear about Ms. Kennedy's adult novels from a fellow blogger (thanks Belinda). My first foray into Ms. Kennedy's ebooks was reading The Blue Bloods series (An Everlasting Howl and Silent Howl) - this author certainly puts the grace in sexy and crafts realistic and romantic couples we can fall in love with.
We welcome Stacey Kennedy.
Big thanks to The Readergirls for being part of the blog tour for A Warrior’s Witch. I thought today we could chat about something I love to write…those loving, emotional scenes that make us sigh.
A Warrior’s Witch had a few of these scenes and I enjoyed writing them. For me, romance is such a key to a good story. I love feeling the emotion not only from the heroine, but more so, from the hero’s point of view. There is nothing that can make me melt more than when a big tough ole’ warrior exposes his heart.
To give you an idea of just what I mean, and why Talon made me sigh constantly, here is a snippet from A Warrior’s Witch.
“There are times I wish I could give you all of myself.” Tears formed in Zia’s eyes and it broke his heart. He brushed his fingers along her cheeks to catch the wetness there. “Sometimes I wish we could step away from it all. The danger of our worlds. The responsibility. So then it would only be each other.”
“Dreams that sound so wonderful, but wishful thinking at its best, my warrior.” Zia smiled, leaning in toward him, her lips brushed against his. “Now, enough punishing yourself. If you persist on wanting to keep that mind of yours busy.” She rolled onto him to straddle his waist. “I can certainly think of a better way to preoccupy your thoughts.”
Talon couldn’t help the grin from forming on his face. He laced his hands behind his head, staring up at his beauty. “Well then, by all means, Zia, preoccupy me.”
To celebrate this release I’m giving away reader’s choice from my backlist. Leave a comment with your email address to be entered, and don’t forget to stop by my website (http://www.staceykennedy.com) to choose which book you’d like if you won. Good luck!
Decades old guilt collide with a murder, igniting a battle in a warrior’s soul to choose between love and duty…
Murder has brought Talon, Master of Guardians, as well as Zia, his witch and Master of Witches, to Chicago. The manner of death appears to be a suicide, but Talon is far from ready to close the case. To avenge the Guardian linked to his past, he agrees to take on the assignment, and find her killer.
As they dive deeper into the investigation, they find themselves entering a world where BDSM is the norm. A lifestyle that Zia is uncomfortable with and, rattled by this new development, she is more than ready to return to the Otherworld. But their investigation quickly takes an unexpected twist when they discover that they’re not only hunting a killer but also someone who is controlling supernaturals in Chicago.
Their mission not only brings danger, but also forces Talon to deal with decades old guilt that corrodes his soul. Every event that unfolds only deepens his fight and pushes him to face an ultimate choice—what is more important—his duty to the Otherworld or the witch he holds closest to his heart?
