Skyrockets in Flight Blog Hop Delight

Lush Book Reviews

For today’s Skyrockets In Flight Blog Hop
I’ve decided to do a character interview.

Most interviews I’ve read are of the heroine, but since NOT WITHOUT RISK is actually the hero’s story, I chose to interview Sergeant Justin Harrison.

What is Not Without Risk about?

Murder. Proving to myself and my colleagues that I was fit to return to active duty after a .38 punctured my lung. And how a sexy brunette, with the longest legs I’ve ever had the pleasure of having wrapped around my hips, changed everything.

What did you think the first time you saw the heroine, Paige?

That she was stunning—and that it had been far too long since I’d been with a woman.

What was your second thought?

She could be a killer.

Why did you become a cop?

I have no stomach for people who take advantage of others weaknesses or misfortune for their own gain. I can’t stand violence against others, especially women. And when bad things happen, someone needs to help restore order, solve the puzzle and uncover the identity of the bad guy. I’m very good with puzzles.

What do you like most about Paige?

Her courage and strength. Even injured and bleeding, facing the knowledge that someone wanted her dead—would stop at nothing to see it happen—Paige didn’t break.

If you could change one thing about her, what would it be?

Why would I want to change her?

What is your biggest fear?

That I won’t be able to protect Paige. I pushed myself, my body, too hard in order to get back to the job—the thing that defines who I am. Then I met Paige, and discovered something more important than being a cop. Injured, exhausted and facing one of the toughest cases of my career…I don’t know if I can do it, if I can solve it before the killer gets his hands on her. But I have to. I can’t lose the woman who’s shown me I have worth other than the job—the woman I’ve come to need as much as my next lung full of air.

Make sure to leave me a comment that includes your email addy and you’re automatically entered to win an autographed copy of Not Without Risk. But that's not all, I will also pick two additional commentors to send some bookmarks and a beautiful heart keychain. Want to double your chance of winning?

Hello, again..
I'm a little unclear about how this blog hop works. Is everyone on the list blogging and doing giveways each day of the blog> And can I win more than once on the same person's blog?
I'm fairly new to this blogosphere world, but have gotten pretty lucky with winnning books and swag!
Also - do I need to put my email in every post?

Sarah Grimm said...

It is my understanding that everyone on the list is doing a blog post and giveaway that will post on 7/4/11 and continue through the end of the blog hop. Placing an email in with your comment is the best way for the host to contact you should you win.

I really like character interviews, I find them so insightful and love getting to know the characters on a deeper love. NOT WITHOUT RISK sounds like a great romantic suspense, got to love the wounded hero. I find it immensely fulfilling to see the hero transform into a better, stronger man and of course, it takes a special woman to help him through it.

Thanks for the advice! I caught on to what other people were doing. I always wondered why people wrote out their email addresses like that! No wonder I ended up on some hackers email list on the internet last month. Sheesh!
