I was tagged by Jodi Linton (creator of the fabulous Laney Briggs series) to join in with the Meet the Character blog hop—which kind of sucks a bit, because my kickass hero who you really need to meet right now, is currently under the blanket (naked), and will remain so for another week until his story releases in Hard to Forget on October 6th.
Not a problem, Nick Marshall of Hard to Hold (a good friend of said anonymous naked kickass hero) has stepped up to hold the line.
But, before engaging in the character assassination of Nick Marshall, a little about Jodi Linton: Jodi is the mastermind behind the hilarious, crazy-Texan Deputy Laney Briggs series, featuring the trials, tribulations and furnace-hot heat of Laney and Gunner.
Her first two titles, Pretty Reckless and Whatcha Gonna Do With a Cowboy defy definition. Yes both are romantic suspenses, but both are so much MORE (hence the live buy links), go check them out.
Now for the hero of Hard to Hold
What is the name of your character?
Special Agent (former assassin with British Intelligence), Nick Marshall. And he’s severely repressed…unwittingly, his determined self-control makes him lethal.
When and where is the story set?
Present day London, with a bit of explosive, overseas travel thrown in.
What should we know about your character?
He’s hot. He’s damaged. He’s a tactless bastard. And, he’s a stickler for rules. Beneath the guilt—and I do meant guilt not gilt—plated armour, he’s fiercely protective, and a hazard to those threatening Anna.
What is your character’s goal?
To protect his ex-wife, Anna Key (say it fast)…God help him and his sanity.
What is screwing up your character’s life (main conflict in writerly speak)?
His fear that the sins of his father ‘Mad Mickey’ Marshall, live on in him. Oh, and Anna… She who will not be constrained, contained or conquered. Damn her!
What is the title?
Hard to Hold (because Nick is, and so too, is Anna)
When can we expect the book to be published or when was it published?
Hard to Hold is available now through Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble…and though strictly embargoed, Hard to Forget (2nd title in the Hard to…. series), releases next week (October 6).
