Interview w/ Jennifer Lyon-- wine, chocolate, puppies & alpha males. *noms*

Hey guys! Alright so today we have Jennifer Lyon joining us! Woots! She's one of the authors I VA for and so much fun. I've not read her as Jennifer Lyon yet but omg her Jennifer Apodaca books? Lurves! Anywho. She's rocking her Lyon side today so come and join us for a drink and a nibble and a little gossip about Caged Magic :)

Hey Jen! Welcome to the herd! Two words for ya. Wine & Chocolate. Figured that would be a fabulous way to kick back and dish some gossip about Linc and Risa. So *pours a hefty glass* how goes it in your world?
Hi there Anna and herd critters! Things are a little wild but overall good in my world. Obviously you know my weaknesses. Ply me with wine and chocolate and I’ll spill all the secrets, LOL! 
Bwahahaha *rubs hands together* Excellent. <begins plotting> Alright, If you had 10 seconds to hook someone and get them all pant-ish and *grabby hands* over these two what would you tell them?
Oh the pressure! *drinks unlady like gulp of wine* 
Wickedly sexy and deeply tortured hero brought to his knees by a beautiful, powerful witch as they team up to rescue her godchild from a demon. Sex and magic sizzle on the page as Linc and Risa battle dark forces for a rare and eternal love…and a hell of a lot of hot sex.
Hmm, my wine glass is empty? Odd.
Oh no! And I'm out of chocolate nibbles. *rushes to the living room door and frantically calls for Joey to fix this* While we any fun behind the scenes tidbits to share??
1) All the demons were purged from Las Vegas as soon as I typed “The End.”  It’s safe to visit now! 
2) Linc still isn’t sure if “magic shrinkage” is real or not but he never has any shrinkage around Risa. In fact, he’s in a constant state of huge arousal and quite happy about it. 
3) Ram and Ginny also appear in the book…and dang, they burn up the pages almost as much as Linc and Risa.
::snort:: Oh I'm sure Linc is very happy about that. lol Now, for those who haven't met a Wing Slayer Hunter yet...what are they and what makes them so dang sexy and fabulous? *raises eyebrow--yes only the right one--mad skills, I know*
They were created to protect earth witches, and then cursed by jerkoff demon to hunt and kill witches for their blood. The Wing Slayer Hunters refuse to give into the curse, fighting the sick craving while protecting earth witches as best they can … until the find that one special witch who can break the curse and bring out their wings so they can fly together. These men are alpha to their core, but they are proud of their witch and her magic and help her with it. That’s what makes them so sexy – they are strong and secure males.
Ahhh gotta love that. Ooo look...Joey to the rescue!! *looks over at the new treats. Good man. Good man. Speaking of treats...if Linc was going to be a dessert what would he be?
Truffles. Hard shell on the outside, but once you crack it, he’s full of decadent and complex layers…and you can’t ever get enough of his deliciousness. Ask Risa – she was sexually numb until Linc’s touch woke her to a fever pitch <g>
Well dang. I might need a truffle over here. *fans self* Now, if Risa--lucky, lucky witch!-- had an entire day of not having to adult (heh) what would she totally relish doing?
Oh I know this! Risa was homeschooled, so she didn’t get to have the school social experience. I had a scene I cut because it didn’t fit the book, where Linc was showing her around a school, they got into science class and built a rocket. Risa totally let her inner child out to play. That scene didn’t work at the time as Risa was still desperately searching for her missing baby and that kind of playful moment wasn’t the right at that time. But that would be the kind of fun Risa would adore once her child was safe. Then Linc could dance with her in the gym and seduce her…just like a prom!
Awwww, okay. I think I'm totally falling for Linc, here. Okay, couple quickies!

Favorite Man Candy?
Here’s my latest fave—I love cut abs and strategic water drops.
Whew. Yeah those abs are rather *covers Joey's ears* lickable. Yard gnomes or pink flamingos?
Yard Gnomes. Pink flamingos are all flamboyant, standing on one leg and demanding they have a cocktail named after them, but what do they really do? Nothing. Now yard gnomes…I know those little suckers have a secret society, and they meet at night in their magical underground caverns where they plot ways to find the dragon and steal his treasure. I’m totally going to catch those gnomes in their evil plot and find the dragon myself. Not to steal his treasure, I just always wanted to pet a dragon…and maybe feed him a Pink Flamingo cocktail...
Wait. *eyes empty wine glass suspiciously* did I say all that out loud?
*tries to cover the giggles* Weirdest thing in your purse right now?
Dog treats, and I don’t have a dog. 
*and totally fails* lol Favorite sandwich?
 French Dip. 
LOL *cue the vegetarian having to look up what a French Dip was and then moving on very quickly* Hmmmm...current OMG I want it! I want it now!!...?
French bulldog puppy!!!
Oh my gosh. You totally need one Jennifer! And then I can play with it! Aaaand *wipes away a little smudge of chocolate* before you head out what's up next for you?
My next book, Exposing the Heiress, book 3 in my Once A Marine series releases August 4th. Short blurb: When wealthy heiress Alyssa Brooks finds out her stepfather has been paying her fiancé to marry her, she's humiliated and betrayed. She quickly breaks the engagement, only to be blackmailed by her now ex-fiancé, who threatens both Alyssa and the son she gave up for adoption. With nowhere to go, she turns to the one man she can trust. But the only way former Marine sniper Hunter Reece can keep the lovely heiress safe is to become the one thing he knows she could never love...a killer.
*psssst* Jen? Did anyone ever tell you that's just the best cover ever? Because omg the #covergasm! (link to Amazon) Thanks so much for dropping by Jen!
Thank you! This was a blast! I love hanging out here.

Risa Faden is a witch whose ultra-powerful shield magic is slowly breaking her mind. But when her beloved goddaughter is snatched by a demon, she’ll risk anything to rescue the baby—including lying to the handsome, intriguing stranger who has the power to help her keep her sanity, save the child…and steal her heart.

Linc Dillinger is a Wing Slayer Hunter whose sexy, rich, bad-boy charm hides a treacherous betrayal that left him emotionally scarred. As a result he risks his life to protect innocents, but is incapable of love—until he meets a beautiful witch who can save his cursed soul. Risa’s fierce courage and loyalty reaches past his barriers and he begins to believe she has the magic to free his caged heart.

But Risa’s lie explodes into dark danger that forces Linc into a hellish high-stakes gamble: He must either win the witch he loves and her godchild…or endure a loss that will destroy them all.
