Karilyn Bentley Interviews the Hero and Heroine of Magical Lover! And A Chance to Win A Book!

Pleaes welcome Karilyn Benley to my blog today! Very excited to have you here today, Karilyn!

Hi Alisha,
Thank you for having me here today. I have brought along special guests, the hero and heroine of Magical Lover. Please welcome Thoren and Keara.

THOREN AND KEARA: Thank you for having us!

KARILYN: Thank you for coming. Thoren, tell us a bit about you.

THOREN: I’m a Draconi. For those of you that haven’t met a Draconi, we’re a race of shapeshifting dragons from the land of Draconia. When I first met Keara I worked for the Council as a reconnaissance specialist, or as you might call it, a spy.

KARILYN: Oh my. I bet you have a lot of adventure stories to tell.

THOREN: I do. Unfortunately, I’m not supposed to speak of them.

KARILYN: I understand. Keara, it’s your turn. Tell us a bit about you.

KEARA: Well, I’m an apothecary by training. My grandmother was an apothecary and she taught me the knowledge and skill. That was before I met Thoren, though. When he told me I was a Halfling, half Draconi and half human, I left my apothecary shop behind and traveled with him to Draconia. I’ve learned new skills now.

KARILYN: I’m glad things have worked out for you and that it’s better than where you were. Ok, Thoren, back to you. When you think back to when you first saw Keara, what comes to mind?

THOREN: I wanted to kill the man that held her.

KARILYN: I mean, what did you notice about Keara.

THOREN: Sorry. Her beauty. How the sun sparkled like rubies in her hair. The look of fear mixed with trust in her eyes as she gave me her hand.

KARILYN: Aw. That’s sweet. Keara, what about you?

KEARA: He saved me from a very bad situation. I remember his strength, the set of his jaw as he glared at Lord Simon. I was scared, but he inspired trust. I’m so glad I went with him.

THOREN: I am too.

KARILYN: I’m glad to hear it! Thoren, what is the best thing Keara ever did for you?

THOREN: She agreed to be my mate. I’d be nothing without her.

KARILYN: What about you, Keara?

KEARA: He saved me. Took me away from my village and all the people who hated me and brought me to his home. And he loves me.

KARILYN: I’m sure you love him too.

KEARA: Of course!

KARILYN: Thoren, is there anything you’d change about Keara?

THOREN: Nothing at all. I love her just the way she is.

KARILYN: Keara, is there something you’d change about Thoren?

KEARA: Well, there is one thing. I mean, I know this is just a dragon characteristic and he can’t help it, but occasionally he burps and sets the drapes on fire.

THOREN: Keara, I can’t believe you’d say that on here.

KEARA: I’m sorry, but it’s true. The poor drapes are looking rather threadbare.

KARILYN: Oh my. Well, I’m sure every relationship has issues.

KEARA: It’s all good. I wanted new drapes anyway.

KARILYN: Ok then. Is there anything else either of you would like to say before we close?

THOREN: I’d like to tell your readers thank you for listening to us today and I hope you enjoy our story.

KEARA: I echo his thoughts.

KARILYN: I appreciate your time with us today and hope you have a good journey home.

BLURBIn a world where men can become dragons, Thoren is one of the most powerful. As a shape-shifting Draconi, Thoren wants nothing more than to continue searching for Halfling children and returning them to Draconia. The last thing he wants or needs is a mate—until he meets Keara, an outcast unaware of the power that lies within her. Keara doesn't know what to make of Thoren or of the magic he practices. She learned early to keep her magic hidden—her witchy red hair and green eyes are burden enough. When Thoren offers his hand in place of a forced marriage with Lord Simon, Keara jumps at the chance to leave her town behind. But she fears Thoren will shun her when he discovers the truth about her abilities.Can Thoren convince Keara she is his lifemate, or will her secret talent be the wedge that drives them apart?
