Know the Hero from Slade

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.
It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?
It depends on where he is. If he’s in a town, Slade is likely to find the nearest poker game and gamble until dawn. If’s he’s out in the open, he’ll make camp and lounge by the fire until he falls asleep.
What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?
Jerky. It’s something he can easily stuff into his pocket or saddlebags and take with him.
Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.
Dark trousers, comfortable checkered shirt, his worn boots and Stetson.
Does he know how to fix things?
Slade can mend a fence line and build a porch; an old Colorado ranch hand taught him how to work with wood. But to fix something such as a cookstove or a chimney, he doesn’t have those skills.
He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
In Arizona territory, someone stole Slade’s poker winnings. Two outlaws blamed the theft on Roth, another outlaw with a reputation just as dangerous as Slade’s. Believing his buddies, Slade tracks Roth to Revolving Point, TX and discovers that Roth is now married. To lure Roth into the open and assure the outlaw returns Slade’s money, Slade breaks into Roth’s home and uses Roth’s wife as bait… and succumbs to a gunshot wound. He’s hauled off to jail, and the only thing saving him from Roth killing him, or the governor from throwing him in Huntsville Penitentiary since Roth’s wife is his niece, is notorious outlaw turned sheriff, Buck Grayson.
How does he act around children he doesn’t know?
He’s not mean, but he doesn’t go out of his way to acknowledge them. Mostly he avoids eye contact and side-steps around them. He grew up in a brothel, left home when he was 18 and took on various jobs before turning to outlawing. None of which really put him in the company of children to learn how to interact with them.
What is he like first thing in the morning?
If he’s around a campfire, he’ll get the coffee cooking and feed his horse. In town, he’s likely to hit up the eatery, or the saloon, for coffee. On Jill’s farm, he’s milking the cow and prowling for her intruder before his morning coffee.
How does he handle things when in a “proper” social situation?
He doesn’t concern himself with polite society, knows he’s rude and brash and prefers to keep that persona, until he meets Jill. Unwilling to cause trouble for her, or embarrass her, he tones down some of his brashness.
Valet or takes care of himself?
He takes care of himself. If he were ever introduced to a valet, he’d send the valet running for the hills.
Necktie/cravat or open shirt?
Open shirt. Slade has little use for fancy clothes.
Sleeves buttoned or rolled up?
Powdered wig or natural hair?
Natural hair. He’s the type to poke fun at a wig, and any man who wears one.
Carriage or horseback?
He prefers horseback, but isn’t against riding in a carriage or a buckboard.
Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

When the Right One Comes Along by Livia Quinn

Genre Small-town Contemporary Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Love happens when you least expect it. . .even when you resist.
Jed Summers has had a change of heart.
When he and Samantha Larue started dating he’d known she was pregnant and still he found her wildly attractive. But when their relationship turned more serious, Jed ended it, telling her he’d sworn off marriage and kids years ago after an abusive childhood. After following her around for six months, as if he still cared, he delivered Sam’s baby and now, every time he sees her and little Nina, he wonders if he made the biggest mistake of his life.
New developments from Jed’s past turn his long held ideas upside down then Sam is threatened and her secret is exposed, leaving her feeling vulnerable. Can he convince her to give him a second chance?
Why did you write this book?
It Had to Be You is the sixth book in the series. Jed is the partner of Officer Del Burke the heroine in book 2 and there was a brief relationship between Jed and Sam in Christmas Wishes (no spoilers). Finally Jed and Samantha get their turn but nothing’s ever easy it seems.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Oh gosh, I love so many. I read historical romance when I just want to relax because I do NOT write that genre. Wouldn’t dream of trying, lol. And depending on what I’m in the mood for, I might pick up a romantic suspense, a romantic comedy or a paranormal romance.If I get stuck on a great series, I’ll pretty much binge on them.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
One of my all-time favorites is Matthew Claremont from Discovery of Witches and the All Souls Trilogy. Vampire, scientist, lover, spy. . . and more. I get hot and bothered just thinking about him. He’s like the Roarke of the paranormal world (my other fav).
What are you working on at the moment?
Actually, I was going down the road a couple weeks ago and a new series came to me and I’ve written about a third of the first book.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I just finished the final edits on Christmas Vows which comes out 12/3 and now trying to finish book 8 which comes out in February, I Will Find you, then it’s on to book 7 in my paranormal series.
