Susan... take it away!
Me - putting on innocent face - No I’m not. Well, maybe a little. But really, I want to ask you a few questions so that the readers can get to know you better. Are you ready?
Owen - Yep. Fire away. sits back and gives me a lazy smile. Do your worst.
Me - clearing throat and trying to look serious. Okay. Do you and Nick have a load of sex then? How’s those sex toys you took from the smugglers? Any good ?
Owen - I plead the fifth. Glares at me. See, I told you.
Me -sniggering. Don’t get your panties in a bunch. You asked for that one. Okay, seriously. Schools face into that of a professional interviewer. I know you love Nick’s paintings and organised the showing for him recently, as we saw in the bonus scene.
Owen - smiles fondly. Yes. He did really well on that show, a real trooper. And now he’s at least getting some recognition for his brilliant art.
Me -Of course you’re biased, that one he did of you is absolutely beautiful. A lot of love went into that .
Owen -preening - Nick made my day with that picture. It’s on one of the walls of our bedroom at the cottage.
Me - I hear you had a really good Valentine’s dinner, but that Nick had you running around a little?
Owen - chuckling -yeah, he did, it was all part of his master plan. But it turned out to be a really good evening… winks at me suggestively
Me - So with all the drama that you had when you were both kidnapped, are you both okay now?
Owen - We’re fine. Brad kind of disappeared and to be honest, I don’t really care what happened to the bastard. Scowls fiercely. Nick is safe and that’s the main thing.
Me - So how is the new job going for you? I know Daniel had made you a partner in the business and it’s growing really well. How are your DIY skills doing? Snorts.
Owen - They’re doing very well ,thank you. Another glare. I’ve learnt a lot, Daniel’s a good teacher. I really enjoy working with him and the landscaping has become one of my favourite parts of the job.
Me - And how is Nick doing? We know he had a really tough time recently. Is he still in therapy with Melanie and are the nightmares better?
Owen - fiddling with a thread on his trousers - He’s much better. He still sees Mel every now and then but it’s a lot more manageable. The nightmares are definitely better. Don phones him all the time and checks up on him too, and that helps. Nick and his dad are very close as you know. If I didn’t look after Nick properly, he’d be down here handing me my arse on a plate. And it’s such a cute arse.
Me -I can’t disagree on that one. Is Socks still as cheeky as ever ? He is such an adorable little thing.
Owen -smiling, Yeah, Socks is doing good. He stills plays with the pen knife and as he’s a hero, he gets more treats than he used to. Nick spoils him.
Me - And you too no doubt. Okay, we need to wrap this up. One more question then we’re done.
Owen -sitting back and relaxing. Okay . Shoot.
Me - Has your gag reflex got any better and do you swallow now? Laughing loudly as Owen’s face darkens.
Owen - growls. Ha bloody ha. You just had to get the last word in about the sex didn’t you. I should have known…mutters loudly and gives me the evil eye.
Me - Owen, thanks so much for being here and answering the questions. Say hello to Nick for me!
A BLINDING LIGHT
It begins with a Book of Shadows discovered by a London coven. The grimoire is as dangerous as it is rare, which is why it evokes modern-day warlock Quinn Fairmont’s desire. He collects objects of great power and beauty—like his lover, Cade Mairston.
Against all odds he and Cade found each other, but their perils have just begun. First is the ex-lover who once held Quinn in thrall. And, someone has been killing warlocks. Could it be one of his own kind? There are those too who would challenge Quinn’s power in their quest to overthrow him as Grand Master. Or is the danger something darker, something invoked inadvertently, rising from the shadows, building from the very inside of a man until it brings an end with a quick flash of light? Of the truth, the surface has only been scratched. Now Quinn and Cade must go deeper and find both answers and an end. They must learn what lurks in the hearts of men…and whether it seeks to love or destroy.
