CHARACTER BLOWOUT. Harley Shares All. Ashlynn Monroe's, PRAY FOR ME. Chance to win!!!
Welcome! It’s time for A Writer’s Mind weekly CHARACTER BLOWOUT. Popping in for the first time? Here’s the scoop. This particular blog feature is designed to mimic the well known, The Newlywed Game save it’s done fresh, new and very much BLOG style. Thursdays we get to know the heroine from some of your favorite tales. Friday, the hero.
By Friday we’re all wide eyed as we compare their answers.
This week it’s my pleasure to welcome over Harley Kaelin and Gabriel Leleux from Ashlynn Monroe’s, PRAY FOR ME. I just ‘met’ Ashlyn via featuring her here at A Writer’s Mind but can tell already that she writes my kind of books. A lot of her tales cover the mind-bending excitement that comes when one combines good solid history with the untapped realm of the paranormal.
This just in... Ashlynn would like to host a contest. "One random lucky commenter that comments on both interviews will win a copy of Pray For Me.”
Nice! Thanks, Ashlynn.
Okay, before I begin the interview I thought we’d learn a bit about PRAY FOR ME…
Gabriel put his faith in his God and his king…That was centuries ago. Harley is proud of her heritage and when she has the chance to give her hometown historical society a boost by booking an eccentric Swiss expert, she has no idea she booked someone who actually lived the history. Immortality is a long time to have a broken heart. Unable to stop himself, Gabriel draws the brilliant historian into his life. Harley discovers far more than Gabriel ever expected about history, his history! A quest to give Gabriel an answer to an old question will introduce them to the danger of a new enemy. Is love enough when your love wants you body, soul and blood?
SKY: Harley, tell us a little bit about you.
HARLEY: Hi Sky, I’m a huge history buff. I love my job, with the state of Wisconsin preserving historical sights. I’m divorced, no brothers and sister, but my parents are great. I’m just a quiet average girl.
SKY: Remembering the moment you first laid eyes on Gabriel, what thoughts come to mind?
HARLEY: OH-MY-GOD Gabriel is the hottest guy on Earth and I was expecting some old guy. Instead this sexy young mouth-watering piece of eye candy is standing there reminding me how I so needed to get laid. Hot and a history expert, I couldn’t have ordered a more appealing male to lust for.
SKY: He has one trait you adored from the start. What is it? You know without doubt he appreciates one of your traits. Share what you think that is.
HARLEY: Well…great question Sky, his brain. He might be delicious and buff, but I love a guy who can think. Umm, I think I’m blushing but I’m going to say my curves. He’s a bit old fashioned in what he sees as hot.
SKY: Have to agree, a guy with brains tends to lead the pack when it comes to potential ‘hotties.’ Gabriel has one trait you’d change if you could. What is it? Oh yeah, there’s a trait you know he’d change about you…fess up!
HARLEY: Ha, he’s going to kill me but I’d love to change how cold his feet get in bed, even under the covers. I’m perfect, and he’d totally agree.
SKY: I get that. Cold feet under the covers is a ‘brrr’ factor most of us would skip if we could. *grins* But love is in the air. What is the single most romantic thing he’s done for you?
HARLEY: He died for me.
SKY: Wow! Can’t beat that! Gabriel has a feature that draws your eye every time. Care to share? His eye constantly roams to a particular part of your person. Tell, tell!
HARLEY: The man has the most soulful eyes. I’m blushing again and I don’t think I should tell.
SKY: How do you think Gabriel would answer the following… Our favorite thing to do together is…?
HARLEY: This is going so nerdy, but I’d say hangin’ in the library.
SKY: My kind of gal. You and Gabriel just don’t see eye to eye on what issue?
SKY: I’d blame it on Louis XIV but I’m always one to go after the guy who made the ‘domino affect’ inevidable. Can’t wait to read PRAY FOR ME so I know who debated what between you and Gabriel! Okay, back to business. He said one thing to you that you’ll never forget. What was it?
HARLEY: “Thank you for enjoying my first sunrise in centuries with me. I love you Harley.”
SKY: Oh, so romantic! It was great having you over, Harley. Can't wait to interview Gabriel tomorrow! My type of guy. *winks*

Contest winners are selected by me using the random generator shown below. Each commenter who follows the rules given each week-whether it's to answer a question or simply comment-is assigned a number according to when they left their comment. For example: Jane comments first, then Sue, then Maria. Jane becomes #1, Sue #2, Maria #3. If the contest requires an answer to be left and Jane and Maria answer it, Sue does not, then Jane and Maria have entered the contest. Therefore, Jane is #1 and Maria is #2. Make sense? All numbers are then entered into the Random Generator. The number selected is therefore the winner. Make no mistake, I welcome those of you who choose not to enter the contest. Kind comments are always well received by visiting authors! Thanks so much. ~Sky
