No Matter When
by Nancy Adams
Standing on the battlements of a 16th century Keep was the last place Gabriel Sutherland should be. Then again, being ‘shifted’ to 1503 seconds before a rocket blew his ass to bits wasn’t something he had envisioned either. Still, he was surviving the only way he knew how, as a soldier. Then Lilly arrived. Sweet, innocent Lilly. For a genetically superior soldier whose life had entailed of nothing but serving King and country, the arrival of Lilly proves too much for Gabe to ignore. For the first time in his life, Gabe can have a woman of his own and Lilly is the one.
Lilly Marten lives alone, her quiet life the result of a highly sensitive photographic memory. That changed when she arrived in the year 1503 seconds before Toronto’s popular C.N Tower came crashing down on top of her. Now she was never alone. Gabe was always near. With his unbelievably perfect features and intense green eyes, he is not a man easily ignored. Yet, uncertainty about her new life leaves Lilly with no choice but to put faith in a man she fears and whose strong physical presence causes her to desire more than just his trust.
Which genre(s) do you write and is one of them your favorite?
My main genre is erotic romance of course, but I always weave in another to spice things up like, historical, time travel, sci-fi (and that was just one book). I have also written paranormal and contemporary. I write in whatever genre is tickling my fancy at the time, and NO I don’t have a favourite, I like them all.
Tell us something that most people don’t know about you? (That you would be willing to share)
Hmm…Well, I have a sheet fetish. I just love buying bed sheets, the higher the thread count the happier I am. I am also very superstitious. No shoes on the counters or open umbrellas in my house. I throw salt over my shoulder when I spill it, my horseshoe is above my front door, I plant lavender for luck and the thought of breaking a mirror or a rocking chair rocking by it self gives me the chills.
Where do you dream of traveling to and why?
I would love to travel to New Zealand. To be honest, my Grandma had given me a romance that was set in New Zealand; I was so intrigued by the authors’ description of the different areas that I actually searched for them on the net. They were very real places and as soon as I saw pictures, I was smitten.
Does travel play in the writing of your books?
Yes, absolutely it does. In my books, I have my characters travelling to places I’ve been, which is anywhere from Northern Quebec, to Vancouver Island to England. There are a few places I’ve visited that I want to use in a manuscript like southern France. I’ve really got to figure out how I can get one of my characters to run through a Lavender field naked, it was something I wanted to do when I was there, (I have this mild addiction to Lavender…it’s nothing to worry about…most days.) but my husband stopped me. He didn’t think the locals would like a Crazy-Canuck running bare-assed through there fields.
I of course, disagreed, that would be a great story for everyone involved.
Tell us about your current release.
My current release, The Bannockburn Spell is an erotic contemporary/fairy tale romance.
It’s a story about Meghan Kennedy who goes to Scotland to avoid her sleazy ex-boyfriend. While in Scotland she meets ex-special forces soldier William Mackenzie and learns not only is their a strong mutual attraction between them, but their families forged a marriage contract…800 years before either one of them were even born and to help guarantee the marriage…they wove a binding spell into said marriage contract. To stir the pot a little more, Meghan’s stubborn streak goes way beyond normal, Will bets Megan that she will fall in love with him in front of the entire village, and Meghan finds out the ex-boyfriend had taken dedication to a new level and is now stalking her…from Canada.
Here’s the Book Blurb:
With the help of a bet, an eight-hundred-year-old marriage contract and a spell, ex-SBS soldier Will might just have enough in his arsenal to capture Meghan’s heart.
Since arriving in Little Glen, Scotland, Meghan Kennedy’s life has got decidedly more interesting. She enters into a bet with hunky ex-SBS soldier, William MacKenzie, discovers an ancient marriage contract and to top it all off, she learns that she had a spell cast on her…eight hundred years before she was even born. None of it matters, because she refuses to make the same mistake twice. Will’s hard body and sexy grin don’t matter, his beautiful hypnotic eyes don’t matter, and it doesn’t matter that every time they kiss her body calls out for his, as though denied of his touch for hundreds of years.
Ex-SBS soldier William MacKenzie is disciplined, trained to be an efficient soldier and he takes the same approach with his life as he does his business. Then Meghan arrives, with her fiery temper and hair to match, all he can think about is Meghan. Her feisty temper bemuses him, her beauty astounds him and her stubbornness annoys the hell out of him. Lucky for him, he doesn’t know how to quit, he can be just as stubborn and occasionally ruthless, and he will use any means necessary to get her. Of course the ‘means’ at his disposal just happen to be a bet, a marriage contract and an ancient spell, but if in the end Meghan belongs to him, who is he to argue?
Tell us about your next release.
My next release, Extinct, is an erotic contemporary/shifter romance which is due out February ’14 for pre-release and March ’14 for general release.
The story is about Theo Grey, a police officer who lives in Tofino, British Colombia. He’s a normal guy, living a not so normal life which began April 1915, during the First World War.
As Theo lay dying in a Belgian forest with the bodies of his men surrounding him, he is given the gift of eternal life in the form of a soul; the only kicker is that soul is the soul of a wolf. From there he goes through life protecting wolf, and the wolf returns the favor, the two coexisting quite well. Then Theo meets Dr. Drew O’Bannion, the new town vet and the wolf suddenly claims that Drew is their ‘mate’. As their attraction for one another grows, there is a rogue shooter wandering the surrounding woods killing all the local wolves, and a really slimy bad guy plus a surprise twist at the end. But I don’t want to give away too much. *wink wink*
About the Author:
My name is Nancy Adams. I am a full-blooded Canadian, right down to the maple syrup running though my veins. I enjoy watching hockey but despise skating...and the cold. I enjoy a good helping of Tourtiere with a side of Poutine as much as the next person, yet I am only bilingual when it comes to swear words.Besides writing, I have three small - but legal - addictions: bed linens, lavender and books. All of which are replenished on a regular basis. Reading into the wee hours of the morning is one of my many bad habits, next to spontaneously rearranging furniture and randomly painting rooms in my house.
