Author Susan Behon
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Sabrina O’Malley can’t stand the sight of Keith Sutton.
At least, that’s what she keeps telling herself. In all
honesty, she loves sneaking peeks at the gorgeous, golden-haired construction
foreman. It’s easy to forget how arrogant and irritating Keith is when she
admires him from afar and can’t hear him talking.
The problem is, he’s always talking. Keith won’t let Sabrina
forget her drunken and failed attempt to kiss him. He’s determined to get a
do-over and she’s determined to avoid him at all costs. If he has to rile her
up to get her attention, and that kiss, Keith is all for it.
Sparks fly when trouble comes to Madison Falls and they are
thrown together in an effort to stop it. When Sabrina is targeted and comes
under fire, Keith is resolved to keep her safe. To do that, he needs to get
past Sabrina’s defenses.
Will Sabrina put her pride aside and give Keith a chance
before it’s too late?

Interview with Sarah Madison

Why did you write
this book?
I had this image in my mind I couldn’t shake in which one of
the main characters, Rick Sutton, is leaning against a Spitfire, dressed in a
RAF flight officer’s uniform. I thought it might make a cool dream sequence,
but when I began researching the Battle of Britain in order to get the details
right, I was appalled at how little I knew of the time period or how much these
young men sacrificed. The more I read, the more I needed to know.  I spent over a month immersing myself in WW2
history, finally coming up for air and realizing I had to do justice to their
story. Finding a way to give my heroes their happy ending was the hard part,
but never fear, I believe in happy endings.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
I love mysteries and sci-fi/fantasy. I love historicals and
romance, too. So if you want to make my day, give me a murder mystery set in
the 1800’s with aliens. Actually, that’s kind of hard to find, which is why so
many of my own stories have a weird mix of genres.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
Oh, I have so many! Lord Peter Wimsey from the Dorothy
Sayers novels, and Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice, for example.
Sherlock Holmes. Spock. Amelia Peabody from the Elizabeth Peters novels. The
lovely thing about a great character is that they are enduring—people remember
them long after the book has been read. The Sherlock Holmes stories are riddled
with inaccuracies and frequently told from a passive viewpoint, and yet we
don’t care because Holmes himself was incandescent. His presence made the story
come alive.
What are you working
on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’ve got a couple of irons in the fire right now. I’m
working on the first in a series of stories set in the 1950s about a couple of
agents who investigate paranormal events—kind of like Ward and June Cleaver
meets the X-Files. I’ve also got a Regency M/M romance in the works, as well as
a contemporary M/M romance involving the sport horse world. I’ve also got
paranormal sequels planned for the Sixth Sense series, and my vampire/shifter
story, Crying for the Moon. I have LOTS of plans; just not enough time to
write!
Please tell us about
your latest book.
David McIntyre has been enjoying
the heck out of his current assignment: touring the Hawaiian Islands in search
of the ideal shooting locations for a series of film company projects. What’s
not to like? Stunning scenery, great food, sunny beaches… and a secret crush on
Rick Sutton, the hot, ex-Air Force pilot who is flying him around.
Everything changes when a tropical
storm and engine failure force a crash landing on a deserted atoll with a WWII
listening post. Rick’s injuries, and a lack of food and water, mean David has
to step up to the plate and play hero. While his days are spent fighting for
survival, and his nights are filled with worrying about Rick, the two men grow
closer. David’s research for his next movie becomes intertwined with his worst
fears, and events on the island result in a vivid dream about the Battle of
Britain. On waking, David realizes Rick is more than just a pilot to him. The
obstacles that prevented a happy ending in 1940 aren’t present today, and David
vows that if they survive this stranding, he will tell Rick how he feels.

greatest love is also his greatest enemy.
How does your heroine
dress?
Penthesilia is an Amazon warrior as such she wears armor into battle.
Her hair is usually tightly plaited and secured back as to not make her
vulnerable to an opponent. Her helmet is embossed with horse faces that cover
her cheekbones, the nose of the horses meet over her nose merging with the
protective plate that runs up between her eyes meeting with the skull
protector. Below hinged plates with the horses legs nearly touch beneath her
lips. When temperatures are cooler she wears a leopard skin beneath her armor
to keep warm. She wears greaves, chest armor, thigh protection and carries a
crescent shaped shield. She is armed with sword, spear, Labrys and arrows.
When not on the battlefield Penthesilia dresses in simple well made
tunics. Not someone who requires much adornment except for a few pieces of
prized jewelry here and there like an armlet she took from an enemy.
When she disguises herself to cross into the enemy Achaean camps to do
recognizance, her hair is loose and she wears a scullery maids dress.
If you could only hear

does your character rely?
She is a matchless warrior with nothing to lose. The accuracy of her

Because her aim is divine her older sister was killed during a hunt
when she stepped into the path of Penthesilia’s spear. She would give up
everything to have her beloved sister back again.

your character always carry (in pockets or purse)?
There are some Amazon fetishes for protection of the Goddess, but she

to Troy. Once there she immerses herself and learns a great deal about the
Trojan people and the royal family. 
Does this character see
morality as black-and-white, or with shades of gray?
She is a very black and white person at the beginning of the story.
But once compromised by the will of Aphrodite, lines become blurred. The only
thing she has to hold true to is her sacrifice to the Goddess Artemis. 
How do others perceive
your character based upon looks, and is is this assumption accurate?
The Amazon warriors are intimidating and it is an accurate assumption.
Does your character care
about what others assume about him?

what Hector thinks of her, because she has a deep and abiding respect of him.

biggest need at the beginning of the story?
Redemption, cleansing and finally a sacrifice to the Goddess Artemis.

biggest hopes and dreams?
Penthesilia’s greatest hope is to honor her sacrifice to the Goddess
Artemis. As for her dreams she has not allowed herself any thought of the
future other than to kill the enemies of Troy.
What would help your
character face hardship and meet any challenge?
Her dedication to her people as a defender of Amazon is where she
finds her strength. Doing her service in the greater good of her people.
If your character could
make any one thing happen, what would it be?
Bring her sister back.
What is your heroine’s
biggest personal flaw?
She lacks empathy at the beginning from being battle hardened. By the
end of the story she’s found feelings again.
When there is a setback,
what doubt or flaw surfaces?
I think setbacks make her more determined to complete her tasks.
Nothing will deter her from making sacrifice to the Goddess Artemis. 
How does your character
handle challenges?
She’s extremely adaptable, her minimal warrior lifestyle does not
leave room for attachment. And then one day she forms a very deep attachment to
someone she should not even be on speaking terms with.
What is your heroine’s
breaking point?
Penthesilia broke when she accidentally killed her sister during a
hunt. From then on she has only a few things in life she really wants.

express disappointment?
Penthesilia retreats into solitude.
How emotionally expressive
is your character to others?
Depending on the situation, she can be cold and aloof or if among
friends and loved ones passionate and open.
When (if) she lies or is
upset, what gives him away?
Penthesilia is one cool cookie. She doesn’t have any tells because
that can get you killed on the battlefield. When confronted with her subterfuge
and deception she willingly takes responsibility. 
Who in her life has the
power to hurt this character the most and why?
Her fellow Amazons because they are her closest people. Hector,
because she deeply respects him, he is better than this war without honor and
Achilles, if he finds out the truth about her it would be catastrophic.

About Your Writer

Why do you think your
writer chose to write about you?
I think C.G. Williams chose to write about me because she was
fascinated by brief descriptions left by Homer. She wanted to write my story
with complexity and richness of culture that she’d not found in other fictional
writings about Amazons. She loves kick ass women that navigate their way
through difficult terrain.
What do you wish your
writer had not told others about you?
I wish that she’d left private the details of my affair with Achilles.
What other character from
your book do you think your writer should write a book about, and why?
Any one of the Amazon warriors that came with me, for example Ainia
the fastest Amazon to set feet upon this earth. Harmothoe the Amazon who has
the gift of communion with animals and Bremusa who is a granddaughter of
Hercules and a priestess of the Dark Artemis Hecate.
Why do you think your
writer loves to write?
My writer loves to write because it takes her to a place outside this
physical realm. She can travel deep into imagination and once that stream flows
it is epically delightful.
Is there anything you’d
like to say to your writer?
Thanks for telling my side.
