#AFTH2014--Interview w/ Vivian Arend and Elle Kennedy--puppies, dirty talkers and...naughty cookies!

Soooo we have TWO ladies joining us today. Elle Kennedy and Vivian Arend. Woots! I've been reading on Kennedy's Rom-Sus series and LOVED them and am diving into Arend's now (starting with a series the two co-write and the one we're talking about today) and yay they are SO much fun! Check out our little visit and leave the ladies some comment love!  ~Anna

Mornin' ladies! Come in, come in. Since it's so blasted cold I got the fireplace going and figured hot toddies and some gingerbread would be nice while we chat about your men. *passes around the plate of gingerbread* Um, okay, so here's the thing. They're kind of naughty gingerbread men *looks around innocently* thing led to another and, okay, they're sporting some ginger-wood. It could't be helped! *tries to mask a furious blush* Right, yes, the interview! So, say yall trying to get someone panting right good after your sexy DreamMakers what would you tell them about these guys?

Viv: Picture a sexy military hero who makes your blood pound and your ladybits tingle (ladybits because Elle doesn’t say the dirty words. She’s a delicate flower. :D) Now picture these guys back home on US soil, looking for the perfect job. Who better to find out what makes a woman happy? The fact that they then use their considerable skills on a few lucky, lucky women…well, wouldn’t you want to be one of them?
Elle: Nope, I can’t say dirty words out loud! But I can definitely write them, and trust me, it’s a lot of fun writing about three ex-military-turned-dating-expert heroes who knock the ladies’ socks off with the perfect combo of romance and heat.
Oh my gosh Elle. No dirty words? Ever? But...they're so fun! Alright, Can yall tell us 3 fun/sexy/naughty behind the scenes facts about the newest couple-- Dean and Emma--and their story?
Elle: Hmmm…well…I know nobody will ever believe this, but Dean (the biggest manwhore on the planet) didn’t lose his virginity until he was 19 years old!
Viv:  They like pina colados and getting caught in the rain. They’re not into yoga, but they love Champaign. Or something like that.
Elle: Emma kissed a girl and she liked it.
Whew never woulda guessed on Dean. And speaking of being a tart....I'm pretty much a total quote-whore. I loves me some quotes. What was yalls favorite quote that just made you swoon or had you gigglesnorting or sighing in girly bliss over these two?

Ooo yay! A bit of debauchery. That's always fun :) With Christmas right around the corner what would be Dean's Top 5 ways to woo his woman?
Elle: 1) Cut a hole in a box 2) Put his junk in that box 3) Make her open the box----WAIT, sorry, those are the lyrics to Dick in a Box :D
OK, Dean’s top 5 wooing ways…
  • 1) Talk very dirty to her
  • 2) Touch her hair. Soft like at times, slipping it behind her ear, or running his fingers through it like he can’t get enough of her. Or wrapping her ponytail around his fist and tugging while he’s buried— Oops. *offers bucket of ice*
  • 3) Text dirty to her when she’s in the middle of a meeting and can’t do anything about it.
  • 4) Watch her carefully so he can anticipate her every need, in and out of the bedroom.
  • 5) Who are we kidding? He talks dirty and follows up with everything he promises: dirty, sweet, mind-bogglingly pleasurable.
That...would work for me. What a pretty dirty talking male. I'd be all on board with that. So, first thing that pops into your mind about Dean? What about Emma?
Elle: When I think of Dean, I think anything goes.
Viv: Emma is ‘the quiet naughty type’. You don’t see what she’s up to until she’s led you neck deep into trouble.
Bwahaha that can definitely be entertaining. Alright now. Entertaining on a whole other front...favorite Man Candy for the holidays?
Elle: I’m all about Sam Heughan (AKA JAMIE FRASER!) these days…

Viv: Hmmm. Clothes can be nice, too, though. 
Giant inflatable Santa-land or totally Scrooge-ing the outdoor deco?
Elle: Scrooging all the way!
Viv: Oh, heck. Forget decorating, I’m going to Hawaii. 
Favorite "omg give it to me now!" Christmas snack/treat?
Viv: Pecan squares. I had a friend who made pecan squares every Christmas, and I refused to get the recipe from her because I would have totally made them every week and eaten the entire tray all by myself. So I only get them at Christmas.
Elle: Anything chocolate
Weirdest thing you've ever gotten (or given) for Christmas?
Elle: I never get anything weird. But that’s because every year I ask for socks.
Viv: *eyes Elle* Because THAT’s totally normal. Socks. Great…now I know what to get you. I gave someone a salt block once. (Haven’t you always wanted a salt block? Be honest…)
Elle: I don’t know what a salt block is.
Oh my god. My mom got given a salt block one year for Christmas. lol

I'm completely freaked out by?
Viv: Horror anything. Movies, TV…nope. Nopity nope nope.
Elle: Centipedes (both the insect and the human variety)
Something you'd totally do if you could get away with it?
Elle: Steal all the puppies in the world.
Viv: Make Elle write allllllll the blog posts on her own.
omg a huge puppy pile would be scarily fun. Aaaannnnd what's up next for you two?
Viv: Holidays, writing and more writing. We’re having fun with the DreamMaker boys, so we hope to do a special SOMETHING to finish the series right, but you’ll have to follow up in a bit to see what it is. We’re not announcing anything until we’re ready. (meanies, ain’t we? :D) 
Elle: We’re finishing up Dean and Emma’s book, and then hopefully doing that super sekrit special something Viv is hinting about…
Thanks so much for coming by ladies! It was a blast having yall. *picks up cookie tray* Naughty cookie for the road?
Elle: Thanks for having us!
Alright kittens! If yall've got questions or comments for the ladies let em have it!
What are three ex-military best friends supposed to do when they’re back on US soil permanently? Parker Wilson, Jack Hunter and Dean Colter considered establishing the typical security company, but a glut on the market forced a change of plans.

After listening to a friend bemoan not knowing what to do for his girlfriend’s birthday, they realized their set of job skills left them uniquely positioned to assist the confused male masses. Any idiot can plan a perfect date if he knows his woman well enough. And anyone with recon skills can fill in the missing gaps.
