Bitter Thorn Tribe (Stewards War, book 2) by Juli D Revezzo
Genre: paranormal romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
Destined to be a bride, if only the gods will let her…
Stacy Macken tries to acclimate herself to her training under Tuatha dé Danaan druids–as if she doesn’t have enough work in planning her wedding to her beloved guardian and fiancé Aaron.
When Fomorii loyalists violate their treaty and seek deadly revenge for their recent defeat, even Stacy’s druids are at a loss to explain the mayhem that ensues.
Can Aaron and his brothers-in-arms stop it before Stacy and her family are caught in the crossfire?
Let’s bare it all and chat about what to wear
First, what is your name and how old are you?
Hello, my name is Aaron and… I’m 3,000 years old, give or take.
What is the time period in which you live?
Currently, I’m living in 2015. I came from the Iron Age, however.
What is considered “appropriate” for someone of your gender to wear?
These days, you folks are pretty simple in your clothing. Or restricted, depending. There was a time, my dear, when I’d go naked and no one would, as you say, bat an eye.
How do you feel about wearing that type of clothing?
I don’t really like ties. The damned things are too choking.
Considering the role you play in society, what is expected for you to wear?
These days? My Irish stick fighting school has a pretty loose uniform; in battle, I usually wear battle leathers, and every day, I’m fond of jeans and a t-shirt. In the Iron age, it was usually just loose linen pants, shirts, and cloaks when it was cold. But I live in Florida, now, and don’t usually have to break out the cold weather clothing.
Ever required to wear something you don’t like? Tell us about it.
Ties. Shudder. What fool came up with those things. You might as well wear a noose.
Do you make your own clothing?
No. The women in my tribe used to do most of the clothes construction; now, the Tuatha de Dannan have their own tailors, so I and my brothers-in-arms, usually go to them. For modern street clothes, the local tailor does well, but again, I usually turn to those of my tribe. But in a pinch, I’ve had to mend them before.
Mending and laundry are chores for anyone. Do you do it or someone else?
I do my own. Well, did, before I moved in with Stacy. Now, we share that chore.
What determines the type of clothing you buy? (example, money, fashion, job)
I go for comfort.
When you wear something different, who’s the first person who notices?
Tell us your favorite thing to wear.
What kind of shoes or boots do you wear?
I’m fond of combat boots. The last few years, I never know when I’m going to need them.
Does what you wear make you feel good, or do you dislike it?
As I go for comfort—especially if, you know, a battle with Balor’s minions should break out—I don’t hang my self-esteem on my clothing.
When others see you what is their first impression?
Bad guys, usually think twice.
How do you feel about that impression?
If it keeps Stacy safe, I’m all for it.
What do you wear to sleep?
Ever dealt with a “wardrobe malfunction”? Depending on your era, you might need to ask your author what this means.
Does anyone help you dress (other than a lover)?
*stares* My dear, did you miss the part about my age? Okay, I’ll say the Tuatha de Dannan tailors, and there may’ve been a back buckle on a bandolier or two that was tricky.
Have you ever worn:
a uniform : Yes, if battle leathers count.
a costume: Maybe when I was a child, I don’t remember, it’s been so long ago.
a disguise: We did in our tribe for different ceremonies, but I haven’t worn one in… donkeys years.
an outfit for the opposite gender: no.
What would you wear to avoid attention?
Whatever the dominant culture is wearing.
What do you wish you could wear?
I’m fairly happy with my current wardrobe, so I don’t really have an answer for that question, Kayelle.
What do you wish you didn’t have to wear?
Battle leathers. I’d love it if our war with Balor ended permanently.
For the character to answer…
Tell us what your author wears when writing about you.
Usually jeans, t-shirt, and a flannel shirt.
If your author has a pet, is the pet ever dressed in clothing?
She doesn’t have a pet, but when as a child, yes she had cats and dogs. Her family never dressed them up, though.
Same question for you. Pets in clothing, yay or nay?
Hey, if it makes the owner happy, why not?
