Born the son of a preacher man, Elijah Deacon always conformed to his father’s strict religious teachings. He worked hard, devoting his time and energy to the family owned construction firm, leaving little time to focus on the deplorable state of his private life. Small town America was no place to be when all a man craved was the touch of another man. Elijah hid his sexuality and tried in vain to convince himself he could be happy with a woman. Urged on by the dream of having the family he craved, Elijah couldn’t know a drunken one night stand would see him pay the ultimate price.
Leaving the bright lights of Atlanta and placing his own life on hold, paralegal, Seth Jacobs, moved to Alabama hopeful that with a baby on the way, his twin sister Bethany would settle down. His older sister by five minutes, she gave him the confidence he needed while growing to come out and be proud of who he was. It was his turn to return the support. On arrival in Headland, Seth endeavored to make her see the dangers her behavior presented to her and her unborn child. But, to no avail.
When destiny deals a cruel blow, and the life of a newborn baby hangs by a thread, Seth and Elijah are flung together to deal with the tragic circumstances. The grief threatens to consume them, while joy and fear work to unite them. Jealousy, love, lies and bitter truths rise to the surface and threaten to tear them apart. Can the powers of love and life bring them together and heal the loneliness that death leaves behind? Or will circumstance prevail and fuel the embers of love that draw them together?

V.L. : Curling up and taking the glass of wine she moves in closer to JT and smiles. I think it’s so exciting to be doing this. Thank you Anna for hosting our work. Elijah and Seth are so special to us.J.T.: Okay so we are going to interview each other. First question is for you V.L. What is your favorite movie of all time and why?
V.L.: OMG! You have to be kidding. There’s just so many, and they’re so diverse. I love Fight Club with Brad Pitt. *Tries not to swoon* Chick flicks, war films, espionage and thrillers. But, I think out of all of the genres it would have to be paranormal movies that I love the best. Queen of the Damned & Interview with a Vampire are probably two of my favorites. I just wish there were more like them. I love the whole vampire genre and will never get enough of the arrogant, sexy persona of how they’re portrayed. Another plus is that I get to curl up next to you and try not to laugh when you get scared!J.T. *laughing* I can’t help it. Love my vamps, but not scary flicks.
V.L. *Grins and pats the chair so JT can move closer* Okay, so...if you were a character in a book, who or what would you be and why?J.T. Oh wow! Ummm…I’d want to be Vishous from the BDB series so I can go get my Cop and get freaky with him. But, if I have to stay true to character…then, I suppose Jane so I can have Vishous. Love that vampire. Okay, next question. If you could choose one book boyfriend to come to life, who would it be, and what book and author? And only one babe, I know you *winks*
V.L.: *Slumps back groaning* that’s not fair. How can I possibly choose? I'd have to be male and gay. I don't know *growls* It’s a toss up between Qhuinn from BDB, your Brock from Grand Slam, Kindle Alexander's Austin & Kitt from Texas Pride, and SJD Peterson’s Whispering Pines Lorcan and OMG Avril Ashton's Syren Rua *pouts* "Love a man in panties! Can I choose them all....please ?
V.L. *Tries not to laugh because I'm sure I already know the answer* If you could re-enact a sex scene in one of your favorite books which one would it be and why?J.T.: Darlin, you so know this one already. It’s not a sex scene per se, but it’s hawtness! Butch’s induction, when Vishous bites him. I think I have the passage memorized, it gives me near chills. *chuckles* I think they may have figured out we’re huge Ward fans. And now, for the racy. *grinning* What’s your BoB’s name? *laughing as V.L.’s cheeks go red*
V.L.: *Just dies and wants to faint* I sooo can't believe you're asking me that! Noooo! Ok so...it has to be V! Cus you know without doubt that MF’s gunna be super powered and 12 inches long! *Hides her face and fans it* Ok Ms. Goody Two Shoes, two can play that game! How many sex toys do you have and which one's your favorite? *Dodges a cushion*J.T. *sweetly* Only two and you bought them missy. Okay, an easy one so you can catch your breath. Do you like sex in the shower? *laughing at the wide eyed stare* It’s yes or no angel…
V.L.: I love turning you into a noodle and nothing beats a wet, soapy and well spent JT! *twirls J.T.'s hair and smiles* What's your most embarrassing moment and how did you handle it?J.T.: *laughing* Okay, I used to coach cheerleading. 11 and 12 year old girls, and some of them I’d coached since they were six and seven years old. We’re selling programs at the high school football game and the other team comes through the gate in front of us, all decked out in their uniforms. Not thinking, I blurted….”I sooooooo love football pants.” I got wide eyed stares and giggles. I did what any adult would do. I denied, denied, denied. *laughing again* Next practice, I got ribbed by the mother’s. It all good fun, but I felt the heat in my cheeks that night. And now, I really will take it easy on ya…what’s your favorite part of Seth and Elijah’s story, Love Life & Circumstance?
V.L.: OMG’sh, has to be where Elijah pinned Seth to the headboard and as good as claimed his man. It was rough, hard but at the same time fuelled by passion. Love that guy. He's just so darn big! My turn. Seems as you’re a born and bred Alabama lass, while writing Love Life $ Circumstance, did you at any time relate any of the characters in the book to anyone you know?J.T.: Not intentionally *grins* but Seth is very much like me. I can’t cook for anything. Burned boiled eggs for gracious sake. And, I used to work as a paralegal. I’m from the Dothan area so I know Headland and Dothan very well….*frowns*….geez, Seth is a lot like me with one exception. I would’ve punched Rhett.
V.L.: *Looks into J.T.'s eyes and tries not to lose herself* You know, all of the males that live in our head are so amazing! *Lies back and places her head in J.T.'s lap* I love all of the characters we write about. But, to me, Lachi and Laziel own my heart. Writing the Crimson Nights Saga for them and their friends is going to be a huge undertaking. Especially now we are into book two. Watching them from the page as their story unfolds has to be the most emotional rollercoaster I've ever ridden. Do you feel the same?J.T.: Very much so. Lachi and Laziel are ingrained in us. Their love is our love. Vischeral and Copi will forever be special as they were our first venture into writing our own work. They showed us we could do this and gave us the courage to push forward. Seth and Elijah, Brock and Spencer, Tyrian and Jaral…none of them would be here if not for the Crimson Nights ensemble. And, I think we’ve taken up enough of everyone’s time. I think This Means War is coming on and and you know how much we love Chris Pine. Thanks everyone for dropping by. MWAH!
