A Forbidden Fantasies Character Interview

When Forbidden Fantasies came out a year ago, the lovely Veronica Scott hosted me at her website with a character interview. I thought I’d share it here as an extra:

 

What was your life like growing up?

Jess:  Well, pretty low key. My parents were older when they had me, and I’m an only child.  I didn’t really start living until I went to college.  That’s where I met Alex.    *slides a smile toward Alex, who winks*

Alex:  Me, I was your typical kid. Baseball, baseball, baseball. Then girls, baseball, girls, more baseball.  *kisses Jessica’s neck and nips at her ear*  And then I met Jessica, and it was all Jess, Jess, Jess, baseball, Jess, Jess, Jess.

 

Before the action in the book, what were your plans/hopes for the future?

Jess:   The usual, I guess. Raising happy kids, taking care of my family. Life’s been good. Maybe a little boring sometimes, but good.

Alex:   With my job, I’ve always hoped I’ll be around to see my kids grow up.  And I want to have time to travel with Jess. We had kids pretty quickly, so we haven’t had a whole lot of time for just us.

 

What changed that?

Jess:  It all started with a book.  (Author note: this was the original first line of Forbidden Fantasies, but it got cut during edits.)   See, I found out I like reading erotic romances. Really, really, REALLY like.  *blushes*  And once I realized I liked them, and thought maybe our sex life could use some livening up, I got a little…restless. And kind of cranky.

Alex:  She’s not kidding, cranky.  *Alex grins, laughs when Jess pinches him*  You know, you think you know a person, and then something happens to blow your mind.  Like finding out my wife has fantasies of kinky sex. Am I a lucky guy, or what?

 

How would you describe your personality?

Jess:  Can I describe Alex’s, instead? *grins* He’s sexy as hell, my guy. Possessive and protective of his family.  A good cop who really cares about and believes in what he does. And he’s a great husband and father.

Alex:  *Alex squeezes Jess’s hand*  Thanks, love. My gorgeous Jess is sweet and kind, sexy and kinky. Before she started sharing her fantasies with me, I never knew she had a bad girl hiding inside her.  I love it when her naughty girl comes out to play.  She’s bad and needs a firm hand – sometimes I think she likes being punished. *winks again as Jess turns pink*

 

What one thing would you take to a deserted island?

Jess: Alex.  Or toilet paper.

Alex:  *Alex laughs*  I’m interchangeable with TP? Really? I was going to say “Jess” but maybe I should make it….I don’t know, sunscreen?

*they both laugh, and Jess settles back into Alex’s arms*

 

Where would you go on vacation?

Jess:  With the kids, the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  Without the kids? I’d love to go back to the B&B. 

Alex: *Alex’s eyes go molten hot*  We don’t need a vacation for that, babe. I was going to tell you tonight after the kids went to bed, but I guess I’ll tell you know.  I just got confirmation we’re booked next month for a long weekend, Friday to Sunday.  Gabe, the guy who owns the B&B, says he has a seminar going on there that weekend, but he had one room left and we’re welcome to it.

Jess:  A seminar? On what?

Alex: *grins widely*  Bondage, what else? Remember what we saw in the lounge that night? Yeah. More of that.

Jess: Oh. My. God.  *squeezes eyes shut, then laughs ruefully* I’ve created a monster. So, where would you go on vacation?

Alex:  As long as I’m with you, I’ll go anywhere.  *kisses Jess*

 

What is your most distinguishing characteristic?

Alex:    *opens his mouth to speak, winks at Jess as he stares at her cleavage*

Jess:   Don’t you dare!  *rolls eyes and elbows him*  

Alex:  What? *rubs sternum*  I was going to say your generous….heart. Talk about creating a monster. *laughs* 

Jess:  You’re insane.  *kisses Alex*  And you have a world class butt.  *turns to Veronica*  You should see him in his boxer briefs. Oh. My.

 

What is your major skill or talent?

Alex:    *opens his mouth to speak again*

Jess:   *covers his mouth with her hand as he does the same to her*  

*both start laughing*

 

What’s your favorite color? Favorite food?

Alex:    *scowls, turns to Jess* Color? Do I have a favorite one? Guys don’t think about that. Blue? I don’t know.  Food, that’s another story. Steamed crabs, shrimp, corn on the cob, chips, beer.

Jess:   Green in almost any shade. Makes me happy. And I’m with Alex on the crabs. Welcome to Maryland. We eat crabs here. *smiles*  Oh, and chocolate, although not at the same time as the crabs. *shudders*

 

If you had to pick another career, what would it be?

Jess:  Oh, I don’t know. Lingerie model? *snorts

Alex: *glares* Over my dead body.  No one else gets to see Jess nearly naked but me. Not funny, babe.

Jess:  I was kidding.  *strokes his cheek*  You know that.

Alex:  Sorry.  *blows out a long sigh, grins sheepishly*   Me, I’ve always wanted to be a cop. I don’t want any other career.

Which actor or actress would you want to play you in the movie?

Jess:  Movie?  *snorts*  My life? Hah.  But really, I have no idea.  Now, Alex? He’d be… Alex O’Laughlin. Oh, yeah.  *grins*

Alex:  Who?  

 

Who are your closest friends?

Jess:  Alex.  My college roommate.  And I just met someone who’s dating one of Alex’s friends, and I think we’ll get along great. Her name is Bella.  I hope she and Marcus can make it work. 

Alex:  Jess.  My partner. And Marcus.   He’s the one who told me about the B&B. I owe him one.

Who do you love?

Jess:  Alex.  Our kids. Our extended families.

Alex:  Jessica, Kara and Ben. Mom and Dad.  My brother and sister.

 

What are your future plans?

Jess: I don’t think that far ahead.  Too much goes on in our lives between the kids and Alex’s job for that!  But I know what I’m doing this afternoon, before Alex’s mom brings the kids home. *winks at Alex*

Alex:  *Eyes widen, and a grin crosses Alex’s face.  He stands up from the sofa, holds out hand* It was nice meeting you, Veronica, but I think we need to go now. *winks* We’ve got….plans.

 

Hope you enjoyed this look into their lives!
