I am so happy to have author D. R. Grady visiting today. She is here to talk about her paranormal romance, “The Dragon Chronicles Book 3: Healing“.
Welcome, D.R. Can you tell us a little about this book?
DRG: Sure. This is a clean paranormal romance. Healers Ewain Douglass and Marissa Mays work and live in close confines. Too bad they set sparks off each other. They struggle to remain civil and professional, until the enemy targets Marissa.
Do you play any musical instruments?
No, although I have a saxophone I tried to learn to play. My husband can pick up anything and make music with it.
What one item would you grab if the house was on fire? (assume no living beings are inside)
If you could invite four people (living or dead) to dinner, who would they be?
Milton S. Hershey, his wife Catherine, my mom, and hubby
Favorite food to cook? Baked goods
Favorite animal? cats
Favorite color? yellow
Favorite book? Anything by Jayne Ann Krentz
Favorite sport or physical activity? volleyball
Favorite place to visit? We visited Niagara Falls in Dec. Gorgeous!
What makes you laugh? Cats (or dogs) on Roombas. Lots of things make me laugh, actually. (That’s probably a good thing!)
Favorite season? spring
Strangest thing you ever ate? I’m really picky, so nothing comes to mind…
Strangest thing you ever did? I’ve never taken a selfie.
Can you dance? Sing? Oh goodness, no. You do not want to see that, trust me.
Which do you prefer for a second home? Mountain cabin, beach house or big city condo? We have a little camper we love, so probably the mountain cabin. (We just take ours along.)
What dessert do you order most often? Chocolate cheesecake
What kind of car do you drive? Color? A gray Nissan Armada.
What is your favorite type of art? Norman Rockwell-like stuff
If you had a magic genie, what would your three wishes be? New house, a body that works, and a successful writing career.
What three items would you take if you knew you were going to be stranded on a tropical island for a year? (enough suntan lotion is a freebie) lip balm, hand lotion, and lots of books
One quote you love, that keeps you going in life? Never give up.
Do you believe in love at first sight? Yes.
We appreciate our readers more than we can ever say.
“He wasn’t at the clinic when I left this evening,” Marissa said.
Lindy bit her lip. “Maybe I’d better go find him.”
Ewain trotted up to them before Lindy finished speaking.
Marissa’s heart skipped, then beat far too fast as she took in his attire, or lack thereof. His hair stood every which way and there was a sleepy air about him. The drowsiness did not detract from the gorgeous body barely concealed by the few articles of clothing he wore.
“Nice knees.” Keely’s voice held a lot of laughter.
“Nice short shorts.” Amusement lit Lindy’s comment as well.
Marissa didn’t offer up anything because her mouth suddenly went dry before flooding with far too much moisture. The man’s shorts were definitely on the skimpy side. They showcased the hard defined muscles of his thighs and calves. He’d paired them with an aging gray tank top. This garment did nothing to hide his perfectly muscled chest and arms. His feet were encased in a pair of grungy running shoes. She bet his feet were every bit as appealing as the rest of him.
“You’re lucky I’m in the habit of wearing clothes to bed. The siren woke me from a deep sleep.” Ewain ran a hand over his bed head and the curls sprang back as though they hadn’t been slept on. Marissa suppressed a heavy sigh.
Alex finished a note he scribbled at the bottom of his paper before he joined the conversation. “Underwear is not optional.” He sounded emphatic. Lindy and Keely laughed.
“Again, you’re lucky I grabbed these before I crawled into bed tonight.” Ewain waved at his running shorts.
“When do you wear those?” Lindy appeared fascinated.
“Only at night when I’m sleeping. So I don’t shock someone in need of medical help.” Ewain glanced down at himself. “I’d never wear these in public.”
Why couldn’t he have remembered that mandate before he left the apartment? Marissa swallowed some of the overflow in her mouth.
Keely glanced around at the crowd, her demeanor solemn. “You’d be sexually harassed if you wore those in daylight hours.”
“Why do you think I’m standing in the shadows?” A hint of impatience colored Ewain’s voice. “I’m not muted, either.”
“I can help.” Lindy tossed the muting spell over him.
“Thanks.” Ewain skulked further into the shadows, behind Marissa, but she still smelled him. His scent was every bit as delicious as the elf himself. She stepped away. In the next second, she was going to start drooling, and . . .
She slid to Alex’s other side. The wind buffeted her more here, but at least she couldn’t smell or see Ewain now. After Lindy’s muting spell, more darkness clung to him, but he was still there.
“Aren’t you freezing?” Lindy shivered and cuddled closer to Alex. But her eyes were on Ewain.
“I’m fine, other than being tired. These cushy hours are going to be a problem.”
“Cushy hours?” Keely cocked her head at him.
“I’m not used to getting so much sleep. Half a night of uninterrupted sleep and my body seems to demand it now.” He ended his disgruntled statement with a yawn.
Even this jaw-cracking action looked sexy on the man.
