Character Spotlight with author Kenzie Michaels

Please give a warm welcome to from Catered Romance by Kenzie Michaels today as we sit down and see what makes him tick.

Q: So tell us about yourself. What got you in the crosshairs for your author?
Courtney:  I had gone to a bar with some colleagues after work and saw this handsome guy with his extremely drunken date.  It was the classic ‘our eyes met across the crowded room’, but since she was all over him, and I’m not into that much PDA, I put him out of my mind.  A week later, my friends and I were at another bar, and the same guy bought me a drink and apologized.  Our chemistry was off the charts from there!

Amber:  Kenzie will tell you that I popped into her head while she was cooking dinner….Marcus hadn’t seen me in three years, and suddenly there I was, having to fill in for the caterer he’d hired.  I’d hoped he wouldn’t find out, but he showed up in the kitchen and our frustrations with each other just sort of boiled over.  After his party, he found me wandering through his pantry, when I discovered he had my missing spice rack.

Natalie:  I came home for my 25th class reunion and discovered the guy I had a crush on all through high school and college was now divorced.  We ended up on the dance floor together, so when I caught him sneaking peeks down my shirt, I thought, ‘what the hell’, and let him kiss me.  Things just sort of escalated from there.

Cara:  When I applied for the job of being Austin’s Administrative Assistant, I heard rumors of him being a womanizer, and was surprised when he hired me, instead of someone more attractive.  But as the weeks went on, I got to know him on a personal level, and I really appreciated the way he stepped in to help me when my brother began to cause problems.

Q: What was it that drew you to your mate?

Co:  Turned out I knew his kids, from working at the country club, and they were high on my list of ‘favorites’.  Dustin turned out to be a very involved dad, instead of what I’d been told, and when I became his father’s weekly caterer, well, that was icing on the cake.
A:  Marc and I always got along, and we’re all adults, right?  I’m a little adventurous in the bedroom, and he went along with whatever I wanted.  For instance, we’d take turns tying each other up, or having sex in the women’s restroom at the club I worked at.  Were you there, Courtney, when I was fired, because Marc had pulled me into the Men’s Locker room and his dad walked in on us while giving potential members a tour?

Co:  That was YOU?  I had only worked there one day, so rumors were flying around. 

N:  Brian and I liked to argue and debate issues, but after twenty-five years, I was thrilled to finally be the one to get him to trust women again, and show him what he’d been missing.

Ca:  Austin’s willingness to help the underdogs is what melted my heart.  He won the lottery, and instead of just blowing his money away, puts it back into the community, to help underprivileged kids.  It’s not a private club where you pay dues; it’s open to the public and he provides programs for kids to be involved in athletics, or after school care….he helps out single moms with child care and provides jobs for teenagers.

N:  I used to baby-sit Austin, and I’m thrilled that the brat of the neighborhood has turned his life around.

Q: A little naughty fun, where was the wildest place you seduced your partner(s)?

Co:  Dustin seduced me in what I thought was a model home; we’d used the office for a conference, then he asked if I wanted a tour of the place.  I knew I’d never get another chance to see one of those mansions, so I jumped at the chance, never knowing we’d end up naked in the master bedroom!

A:  Marc and fooled around on the 16th green one evening, and nearly got caught by the grounds keeper.  Other than that, we did have sex on the conference table of his father’s boardroom once.

N:  During the family picnic on the 2nd day of the reunion, Brian pulled me into an empty shelter house which had walls, but we didn’t have sex.  We only kissed, and he unfastened my shirt and bra, but we didn’t want people to know we were involved yet.

Ca:  Austin and I made love on his desk one morning, before any other staff arrived.

A:  Did he do the whole ‘sweep everything off the desk’ first?

Ca:  (laughs) Let’s just say I’m glad his laptop was still in his briefcase!  That would have been expensive.  Afterward, we kept finding pens and paperclips all over the office.  Thankfully, no one seemed to notice.



Q: Boxers, briefs or Commando on a man?
All:  Boxer-briefs!

Q: If your partner wants to seduce you, what's one sure fire trick they can do to seduce you?

Co:  Kiss me under my ear.  I don’t know why; I melt every time.

A:  I can’t explain it, but Marc just has this look.  I get wet just picturing it.

N:  This may sound corny, but Brian once called me beautiful.  So now when he smiles and calls me ‘beautiful’ or ‘sexy’, I’m all his!

Ca:  I’m the same way, Natalie.  Austin and I have a song, ‘The Reason’ by Hoobestank.  All he has to do is pull me into his arms whenever that song comes on.

Co:  That’s so sweet!  I think ours is ‘Million Reasons’ by Lady Gaga.

A:  Right now, Marc’s into country, so ours is ‘From This Moment’ by Shania Twain

N:  Ours is definitely ‘Faithfully’ by Journey.

Q: What is the one place on your partner's body that you know will drive them wild-in and out of bed?

Co:  Dustin just melts when I run my fingers up and down his ribs lightly, not enough to tickle.

A:  (clears throat) Marcus loves it when I stroke his butt.

N:  Brian’s left earlobe, and also when I run my fingers through his chest hair.

Ca:  There’s a sensitive spot under Austin’s chin.  I kiss it, or lightly run my tongue over it, and he’s all mine!

Q: What was one of the most embarrassing things your author did to you in ?

Co:  Having my boss screech at me in front of everyone.  Couldn’t she have confronted me in private?

A:  I think being walked in on by your partner’s parent ranks pretty high!

N:  The only thing that comes to mind was when I misunderstood about Brian’s casual relationship.  Remember the morning we came into AJ’s for breakfast, Amber?  I thought you were the woman he was involved with.

A:  (chokes) Oh god no!  I set up the motel room for them to meet every week, but that’s the extent of my involvement in his love life.
C:  Other than showing how naive I was about my brother, I can’t think of anything.

Q: Anything else you would like to add?

N:  Thank you so much for having us today!  Our stories were first published ten years ago, and Kenzie very thoughtfully put us in print form for the first time.  I hope that anyone who read and loved Appetite For Desire (Courtney and Dustin’s story), All She Ever Wanted (Amber and Marc’s), Class Reunion (mine and Brian’s), and Off The Clock (Cara and Austin’s), will rediscover this awesome saga of small town life.

Co:  I’d like to thank Kenzie for adding me to her original trilogy.  Otherwise, I’d still only be in e-book format.

A and Ca:  Thank you very much, Dawn.  This was fun!

Thank you Courtney, Amber, Natalie, and Cara for joining us on 'Meet the Character' day here at Dawn’s Reading Nook Blog.

After harboring a secret crush all through high school and into college, she is both alarmed and thrilled when Brian makes his intentions known at their 25th class reunion.

Book Description:

Beyond the Surface:
On 9/11, firefighter Nick Fletcher’s world changed forever. He's unable to rid himself of survivor’s guilt, made worse by the secret he hides from his family and co-workers. Nick's life is centered around helping burn victims, until he is reunited with the man he’d once loved but pushed away. Now he has a second chance at a love he thought lost forever.

For fashion designer Julian Cornell, appearances mean everything. His love affairs are strictly casual, and the only thing he cares about is making his clothing line a success. A chance encounter with the man he loved long ago has Julian thinking for the first time in years there may be more to life than being seen at the best parties and what designer labels to wear.

When Julian’s world takes an unexpected turn, it's Nick who helps him regain perspective on what matters most in life. Julian, in turn, helps Nick accept who he is and understand he isn’t responsible for tragedies he couldn't prevent. Lost love found can be even sweeter the second time around and after all the years apart, both men learn to look beyond the surface to find the men they are inside.

===================

Betting on Forever:
A weekend fling in Atlantic City couldn’t be more out of socially shy Zach Cohen’s comfort zone, but a bet with his best friends forces him to put aside the humiliation he’s hidden for years and step away from behind his computer screens and online world. When he meets Sam Stein, despite their spark, Zach expects nothing more than a night of passion and a kiss good-bye. Yet weeks later, he can’t keep the man out of his head.

After a split-second decision with tragic results ends his twenty-year police career at the same time as his relationship falls apart, Sam Stein is drifting through life. At his best friend’s urging, he agrees to a trip to Atlantic City to clear his head. What Sam doesn’t plan on is meeting Zach Cohen, whose sweet nature and honesty has him thinking maybe he could move forward, until Zach leaves him without explanation, reinforcing Sam’s belief that people can’t be trusted.

Well-meaning friends refuse to let Zach and Sam hide from each other, forcing them to realize their weekend was much more than a one-night stand. Before that can happen, Zach must come to terms with his past and stand up for his own independence, while Sam has to learn to take a chance and believe in himself and people again. All bets are off when dreams become reality, and forever doesn’t seem to be long enough.

===================

Second to None
Nightclub owner Marcus Feldman never met a man he didn’t love, at least for the night. Although his best friends have all found love, Marcus shuns their advice to commit to one man and settle down. His past has taught him monogamy and marriage is for fools, and Marcus is anything but a fool.

Tyler Reiss’s dream of dancing professionally is unexpectedly cut short and replaced by a different kind of love. He trades in his ballet slippers for go go boots, and spends his nights dancing at the hottest gay club in the city. Flirting with the customers for tips is easy, but resisting the dark and sexy Marcus is becoming harder to do with each passing day.

Unforeseen circumstances bring Marcus and Tyler closer and though they give in to their mutual passion, both still struggle to guard their hearts. When crises threaten, Tyler and Marcus find their strength in each other rather than falling apart. Tyler must choose to either run, or stay and fight for the life he wants, while Marcus realizes that love doesn’t mean losing himself and opens his heart, making him a better man in the end.

===================

What Lies Between Us
Now that he’s living with Sam Stein, Zach Cohen is finally ready to move on from his unhappy past. His days are filled with wedding preparations, yet he still finds time to make plans and decisions without consulting Sam and his mother, firmly believing he knows best.

Sam is ready to settle in for the perfect life with Zach but years of bad habits have come back to haunt him. Struggling to accept himself and his future, he chooses not to share his fears, unwilling to look weak in Zach’s eyes.

Real life gets in the way of the best intentions and when their secrets explode, the aftermath challenges the foundation of a relationship both believed unshakeable. Falling in love is the easy part, and Zach and Sam discover that only with honesty can they overcome what threatens to tear them apart.

This is a novella of approximately 25,000 words in The Breakfast Club series

===================

Hot Date
Once again, Julian Cornell is at the zenith of his career; not only have his designs helped the young men and women in the burn unit, he’s about to ink an exclusive deal with the hottest model for his new high-fashion menswear collection. Everything is perfect except his husband doesn’t understand how important it all is to him, and the model might want more than just to walk the runway in Julian’s clothing.

Nick Fletcher has never been the jealous type; he’s always been confident his place is right by his husband’s side. But now that Julian is about to re-launch his fashion line, Nick fears Julian might be sucked back into a world of beautiful people and wonder what he’s missed being married to a less-than perfect man like Nick.

Leave it up to two meddling friends who think they know best to arrange a hot date guaranteed to put the spice back in Julian and Nick’s marriage. A couple of silk ties and some sweet and sexy loving enables them both to recall the struggle that brought them back together, a reminder that what lies beyond the surface is a lifetime of love.

===================

A Holiday to Remember:

With Lillie away at a sleepover, Marcus and Tyler finally have some much needed time alone together. Marcus can't wait to get Tyler into bed. He has plans that involve getting and staying naked. But an innocent question from Lillie has Marcus wondering if he's ready to take that next big step.

Book Spotlight & Giveaway~ Rescued by the Mountain Man


This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Marin Black will be awarding a $10 Amazon or Barnes and Noble GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

Desperate for an escape, Jae Copeland takes a solo kayaking trip into the lush wilderness of the Smoky Mountains. When she ends up stranded and soggy, she makes camp and hopes to avoid dangerous, wild animals. She should have been more worried about dangerous, wild humans, but she's both alarmed and thrilled when Hanson Sykes, a fellow kayaker, happens upon her. He's an experienced mountain man…and sexy as hell.

The sparks between them light up the uninhabited darkness, because survival in the mountains isn't his only talent. He knows exactly how to touch her in ways that make her burn.

Read an Excerpt

I was alone in the middle of the wilderness. Mostly naked. With a strange man.

I gazed at what I could see of him. An attractive strange man. He was tall, kind of bulky, with curly dark hair that fell to his collar. In the dimming light, I couldn’t make out the color of his eyes, but his face was ruddy from the mountain air, his jaw chiseled and strong, with a beard that matched his hair and complemented the contours of his face. All I could think was hot.

About the Author: Marin has the mountains in her blood, heart, and soul. Her favorite romances would include an untamed setting (maybe an Irish ruin), a historical love affair (especially if there’s a ghost), or just a bad boy with a good heart.

She loves to spend time with her son, hike, travel to wild and remote places, read, and camp in insanely crowded campgrounds—so she can burn all the food, keep the neighbors up all night with her campfire, and dream about what her characters will do next. At home, she loves to create new characters and their worlds, and is a freelance editor too.

Book Blurb:

When an avalanche crushes her world, Olympic hopeful Starr Taylor loses her job, her boyfriend, and worst of all, her confidence. She's working on getting her life back together and moving forward, and it certainly won’t be with Spencer Kensington, the far-too-attractive playboy lawyer she’s forced to play nice with at their friends’ wedding. Unfortunately, Spencer's trip to Reno gets extended unexpectedly, and Starr suddenly finds herself way too close for comfort with the man she's quickly realizing is more than he appears.

Spencer is a tough, no-nonsense New York businessman with a no-commitment rule in the bedroom. But a few days of living with Starr, feeding goats and helping her save troubled teens, has him feeling something he can't identify. In fact, the more Spencer gets to know the surprisingly vulnerable and tempting woman, the duller his superficial life in the city starts to seem. But everything he's worked for is waiting for him, and as Spencer’s flight back home grows closer, he's left wondering if the life he has is really the life he wants.

Purchase links:

Excerpt:

He walked to the edge of the porch and looked up at the sky, dotted with stars of different sizes and brightness. Now this was a view he didn’t have back home, not with all the lights. It was peaceful, relaxing. That welcoming feeling that made you think you might fit in. Could he fit into a place like this? More than likely, he’d be bored within a month, no, a week. Still, he couldn’t remember the last time he’d felt so at peace. Not even in Aruba last Christmas, alone.

Starr cleared her throat. “So how do you think it will go tomorrow for Matt? Mrs. Millard confirmed what I thought, that it’s his first time.”

First time caught. Spencer’s thoughts drifted back to his first time in court—and in juvie. It wasn’t a wallet he’d stolen, it was a baseball glove. An initiation into a group of friends he thought he couldn’t live without. “Matt’s charges will be read in front of the court, and then the judge will set his formal court date.”

“Sounds intimidating.”

“It seems a whole lot scarier than it really is, especially the first time.” He’d survived his first run-in with the law just fine and totally unrepentant. It was the second that screwed him—and saved him.

“Sounds like you’re talking from experience again.”

He turned around, rested against the railing, and focused on Starr’s silhouette nestled into the swing.

“Do you…have experience?” Her tone was laced with curiosity. It beckoned him, made him want to follow.

He opened his mouth to respond and then clamped it shut, thankful the darkness hid the confounded expression he knew he was sporting. What was it about her that made him want to drop his guard and say things he’d never otherwise say?

Get your head back in the game, man.

“I’m experienced in all kinds of things that would interest you.” He softened his voice, infusing it with just enough arrogance to make good on that promise.

She stood up, ready to walk away, no doubt. A good thing, really. She wasn’t his type.

But then she moved toward him. Had she changed her mind, about him? Had he misjudged her? The smell of lilacs wafted through the air as she approached, intensifying the need to reach out and touch her, though he didn’t. Not yet. She wasn’t like any woman he’d known before. He needed to let her drive this…this, whatever was starting between them. Patience, he reminded himself. Lots of it.

She stopped just inches away. Close enough for him to see some hope, or maybe it was curiosity, in her eyes. Close enough for him to feel her breath on his shoulder. Warm, and was it ragged? Or was that his? She licked her lips, and his eyes were mesmerized by the motion. He could barely tap down the need to taste them, feel his lips on hers.

“What do you want?” He needed her to be sure.

“I can have anything?” she whispered.

His breathing hitched. “Name it.” They had two nights—two long nights. More than enough time to experience all kinds of interesting things, if that’s what she wanted.

Book Spotlight & Giveaway~ Garrett Leigh's Kiss Me Again



Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Universal Link - Exclusive to Amazon and Available to Borrow With Kindle Unlimited

Cover Design: Black Jazz Design

Length: 227 pages

Blurb

Tree surgeon Aidan Drummond is content with his own company. He works alone, and lives alone, and it doesn’t occur to him to want anything else until a life-changing accident lands him in hospital. Then a glimpse of the beautiful boy in the opposite bed changes everything.

Ludo Giordano is trapped on the ward with a bunch of old men. His mind plays tricks on him, keeping him awake. Then late one night, a new face brings a welcome distraction. Their unlikely friendship is addictive. And, like most things in Ludo’s life, temporary.

Back in the real world, Aidan’s monochrome existence is no longer enough. He craves the colour Ludo brought him, and when a chance meeting brings them back together, before long, they’re inseparable again.

But bliss comes with complications. Aidan is on the road to recovery, but Ludo has been unwell his entire life, and that’s not going to change. Aidan can kiss him as much as he likes, but if he can’t help Ludo when he needs him most, they don’t stand a chance.

"Kiss Me Again is a deliciously tender and prickly romance about the intimacy that comes with acceptance. Ludo and Aidan accept and love each other for exactly who they are—complications, injuries, mental health issues, moods—and I loved them for it." -- Roan Parish
