Angela Knight : I'm honored! That really means a lot to me. ;)
Niina : Let’s get started! Can you tell my readers here 5 fun unknown facts about you so we can break the ice?
Angela : I am a huge comic book geek. I actually got my start in comics.
In fact, JANE'S WARLORD was heavily influenced by my first comic, CYCOPS, which was the story of people with computer implants in their brains.
CYCOPS was published in 1988, before home computers were common.
MASTER OF WOLVES and MASTER OF THE MOON were born in 2002 when as a newspaper reporter, I interviewed a cop who was a drug dog handler. As I was talking to the man, I thought, "What if the dog was a werewolf?
The hero of MASTER OF FIRE is based on my husband's best friend, who is a forensic chemist, arson investigator, and bomb tech, as well as a cop. He let me follow him around for a week learning about how to do drug testing, arson investigation, and bomb disposal. He also helped me figure out how my villains would have created the nasty bombs they used.
Niina : I'm bit of comic geeks myself. ;) Also getting to follow a cop around for a week, must have a been a blast! Alright calming down... Tell us little about your books, what kind of stories do you write?
Niina : Sounds so drool worthy, and the ones I've read have been! You know how to write them hot girl! What made you want to write Romance though?
Angela : I write romance because I have always read it. I just love watching two people struggle to find their happily ever after, despite whatever stands in their way--including each other.
Niina : And that is why I love to read them too. What does it take to write a really hot love scene?
Angela : I like to listen to music, but I also have a lot of research books-- with PICTURES! ;p
Niina : LOL! Pictures of hotties are always helpful. ;) What makes a hero sexy?
Angela : He has to be gorgeous, of course, but he must also be a heroic person who wants to protect the heroine from anyone who wants to hurt her. But at the same time, he can be just a littttttle sexually menacing and dominant when it comes to the heroine, but ONLY if he knows that secretly turns her on.
Niina : Turns me on... ahem, I mean... What’s the best compliment you've received on your writing? And who complimented you?
Angela : A young woman told me that her infant daughter had been in the hospital with a heart valve problem. She said ready my books helped her forget her fears, if only for a little while, and stay sane. I can't tell you how honored I felt, or how thrilled I was. It meant more to me than she will ever know.
Niina : I can only imagine, romance author's have helped a lot of people in more ways that can be said, they get way too little credit for it though. So what are you working on right now? Can you give us a sneak peak? Pretty please?
Angela : Here's a sample of THE ONCE AND FUTURE LOVER, again coming in April as part of WICKED GAMES. This is right after Arthur drinks from Merlin's Grail and becomes a vampire, which is why he looks so young. But his mind won't fully reawaken until he drinks enough blood, which Gwen must give him.
"Despite the lamp she held, the room was dark as a crypt after the torch-lit balustrade. Gwen fumbled to attach the lamp to the chain that hung from the ceiling.
When she turned around, Mordred loomed over her like a wall of muscle. Gwen froze in wide-eyed horror, unable to breathe, much less scream.
Arthur, she realized a moment later, and felt her heart lurch back into rhythm. It’s Arthur!
His eyes were dark, not Mordred’s icy green. He didn’t look quite as young as his son, but he could have been an older brother. “Christ’s wounds, Arthur, you frightened me witless!”
He stepped against her, forcing her to retreat until her back hit the wall. Leaning down, he sucked in a deep huffing breath, as if scenting her.
“You’re scaring me.” Gwen struggled to regain control of her rising voice. “Give me a little room, please.”
He didn't react, still breathing deeply bare inches from her throat. She planted both palms against his chest and shoved. “Step back, Arthur!”
He caught her wrists and lifted them over her head. Gathering both hands in one of his, he pinned her against the cool plaster and leaned against her.
Gwen once had a horse she was grooming pin her by shifting his weight, trapping her between his shoulder and the stable wall. The animal hadn’t applied any real pressure, but she’d found she couldn’t move him no matter how she pushed and struggled. Point made, the gelding finally stepped aside and let her go.
Arthur’s hold felt exactly like that. Not tight enough to hurt, but completely inescapable. He watched her, his expression patient, while she strained against his warm, immoveable strength. “Arthur, dammit, let me…”
“My Queen?” Lancelot called through the door. “Do you need help?"
Arthur tensed and lifted his head, glaring toward the door. His lips peeled off his teeth.
Two of them were fangs.
“My Queen? Are you all right?”
“I’m fine, Lance! He’s not hurting me, he’s just irritating the hell out of me. It’s not the first time, and I assure you it won’t be the last. Quit listening at the door before you hear something that will embarrass you as much as it does us.”
There was a long, uncomfortable silence. “Excuse me, my Queen. I was but concerned. You sound…breathless.”
“Breathless or not, I’m in no danger.” I hope. She had never been so intensely aware of her husband’s size and strength, especially compared to her own far more delicate body. Was he actually bigger than he had been two days before, if not in height, then in sheer muscular breadth?
He looked down at her, his black stare hungry as he bared those fangs again. “Mine.”
Gwen actually felt the word rumble from his chest to hers. “Yes, my King. Yours. Still. Always.”
His snarl became a smile, sensual and hot. Gwen knew that smile. That was Arthur."
