Welcome Nicki Greenwood

Please give a warm welcome to Ethan Sutter from Fire by Nicki Greenwood today as we sit down and see what makes him/her tick.

What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not saving (the world, clients, your mate)?

Fixing things, ‘cause I’m good at it. I had a tough childhood until I came to live in foster care with the Rathbones at their ranch. I learned a lot about hard work there. I didn’t appreciate it then, but I realize now how much I needed that.

What is it about your love interest, Gypsy Ronan, that makes you crazy in a good way?

Her hair is amazing, just this beautiful, long, curly black hair that makes me want to throw her in bed. She’s also really smart about people, and she’s not afraid to tell them how she sees them.

Do you sometimes want to strangle your writer? Thrash her/him to within an inch of their life? Make them do the stupid crap they make you do?

I’d like to see her run into a burning building! I know chicks dig scars, but this is getting ridiculous. Can I just skip to the end where everybody’s happy?

Favorite food?

Farm-raised steak from Montana. Nobody does it better, and nobody ever will.

Tell me a little bit about your world. What are your greatest challenges in that world?

I think dealing with everything I grew up with before getting to Hope Creek has been my biggest hurdle. It took a long time to learn that not everyone is heartless. Part of me will always be re-learning that, every day. It’s a process, but I’m still kicking.

Describe yourself in four words.

Too stubborn to die.

What do you do for a living?

It took me a while to figure that out, but I want to open a mechanic shop. Nothing fancy, just somewhere I get to do something I’m good at.

What do you fear the most?

That I’ll never be a good husband or father. But that’s what hope is for. As long as I’m breathing, I get a chance to do it right.

Thank you Ethan Sutter for joining us on 'Meet the Character' day here at Dawn’s Reading Nook Blog. You can find all of Nicki Greenwood books at their website.

Is love worth the risk of getting burned?
Ethan Sutter is good at running, but he can't outrun himself. Rootless and reckless, he prowls the country, able to abandon everything except his hated Fire Elemental power. Then he lands in Pickering, Vermont, out of gas and out of options, and meets New Age curio shop owner Gypsy Ronan, an even bigger misfit than he is.
Gypsy knows Ethan is trouble. However, none of her tarot cards or tea leaves could have prepared her for their undoubtedly dangerous mutual attraction. More shocking still is the discovery that he possesses an incredible power, and he wants her help getting rid of it.
Ethan needs a normal life. He's sure a woman like Gypsy couldn't be part of it, but she sets his blood smoldering. Gypsy knows there's more to Ethan than he admits, even as she fears for her heart.

Excerpt from FIRE

This close, Gypsy couldn't help breathing Ethan's scent—a pleasant blend of sawdust and something smoky that strummed her nerve endings in a constant chord of awareness. And then she was right back there with him on her living room rug, wondering what would have happened if they hadn't been interrupted. Her knees turned to water. "Please," she whispered, unsure what else she meant to say.
"Please...?" he prompted, his husky voice wrapping around her. His body heat drifted against her exposed skin, or maybe she was imagining it.
Desperate, she fumbled for her last shred of willpower. "Pickering needs good men like you."
"Am I?" He canted his head. "A good man?"

Nicki lives in upstate New York with her husband, son, and assorted pets. If you can't find her at her computer, you can always try the local Renaissance Faire.
