Hello and welcome! I’m Braxton Carmichael and will be hosting this shindig since Ms Evans is elbows deep into her next book.
With the release of the Sexually Awkward series just around the corner, I thought I’d invite one of the new guys over and grill—er, ask him a few questions.
Braxton: Okay, the first book in this series is called Custom Toys Made to Order. Where does a title like that come from?
Atticus: Well, that’s what we do. My friends and I own Fantasy Creations where we create custom-made toys for seriously kinky paranormals.
Whoa. I totally didn’t see that one coming. What the hell did Ms Evans get me into? Then again…
Braxton: So, I could call up and order something specifically for my mate? Completely custom designed?
Atticus: Absolutely. We aim to make your fantasies reality.
Images of Xander strapped to the mattress with black leather covering all of that deliciously caramel colored skin flashes through my mind. That idea gets squashed in a hurry, though. I’m not saying I wouldn’t be into it, but the last thing I need is to get a woody during an interview.
Braxton: Okay, hmm, so have you ever tested any of your own toys?
Atticus: My mate is a horndog. The very first thing he had made for me was this extremely elaborate and complicated restraint system. We’ve added a couple more to our collection since then, but I don’t test stuff I design for other people.
Yeah, I totally get the horndog thing. I can’t get within twenty feet of Xander without him going in heat. Not that I’m complaining, mind you.
Braxton: How did you meet your mate?
Atticus: At a club.
It’s a short answer, and he won’t look me in the eyes. There’s a story there, and apparently not a very pleasant one. Having been through my own share of drama, I get it, and decide not to pry.
Braxton: What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you?
Atticus: Ha! Probably the time I kicked Salem in the ribs while he was trying to give me a blow job.
I have no idea how that even happens, but it’s damn funny. Still, it seems kind of rude to laugh.
Braxton: Salem? I’m guessing that’s your mate?
Atticus: Yes, that’s him. He’s a little overprotective, but he’s pretty to look at, so I let him get away with it.
Braxton: Honey, I think it comes with the title of alpha. It’s like they think we can’t tie our own shoes without their help.
Atticus dissolves into laughter at this, so I know he gets what I’m talking about. If I had a nickel for every time Xander overreacted, I’d be able to pay for that pool Keeton wants to have installed.
Braxton: What’s the most insane toy you’ve ever created?
Atticus: Actually, the toys our mates had made for us are probably the most inventive. Ms Evans threatened my life if I told what they were, though.
Braxton: How about names? Can you give us that much?
Atticus: Yeah, I guess that would be okay. Well, Salem had this thing called Ring Around the Rosy designed for me. Nigel’s favorite toy is the Thundering Boomstick. Brenner’s mate came up with this really neat contraption we called the Cat’s Cradle. Cedric’s mate is a cowboy and came up with this toy called the Eight Second Ride. It’s kind of wild what they think of really.
I’m dying to know what each one of those toys are, but I know Ms Evans will skin us both if I push. Curiosity killed the cat and all that jazz.
Braxton: Speaking of cats…
Atticus: When did you bring up cats?
Braxton: Never mind. So, are all of you cat shifters?
Atticus: Well, me, Thaddeus, Dorian, Nigel, Cedric, and Brenner are. Though we’re kind of a feline menagerie.
Braxton: Is there anything else you want to say before we wrap this up?
Atticus: I just want to thank everyone for being here. I have no idea why they’d want to listen to me ramble, but I’m grateful they did.
Okay, I wasn’t sure at first, but I definitely like the guy, and I hope everyone else does as well. Be sure to check out his story Custom Toys Made to Order coming March 10th from Siren-BookStrand.
And don't forget that Invincible [Haven 5] just released!
Torren Braddock has his hands full as a new elder, trying to clean up the mess the former Council members left for him. Adding a mate to his agenda is the last thing he wants to do, but he can’t deny the way Aslan draws him in like a moth to a flame.
Torren is meant to be his champion, his protector. Aslan is sure of it. When the voices in his head grow louder and more demanding, he realizes something big is coming, something that has the potential to destroy everything—and he’ll need his new mate at his side if he hopes to survive it.
