We were lucky enough to sit down with Margo Bond Collins.  Take a peek at the interview below.

If you were an animal,what kind of animal would you be?

A jaguar—one of the sleek black ones that hangs out on a tree branch being all sleepy and lazy most of the time, but has razor-sharp claws that come out every once in a while.

If you were a Star Trek or Star Wars character, which one would it be?

And here’s where my inner geek comes out to play—I’m answering “and” rather than “or”:

Star Wars: I so want to be Han Solo, the rake-turned-hero. When I’m revising and editing, though, I fear I might be the Luke Skywalker of Dagobah, all whiny and resistant.

Star Trek: (How utterly nerdy is it that I’m sitting here thinking “which series?”). I think I might be Captain Janeway—workaholic, interested in science, considers everyone she cares for part of her “family,” but a bit reserved in day-to-day life.

If you were a food what type of food would you be?

Tex-Mex cheese enchiladas. (A basic Texas choice—with just a touch of spice!)

What astrological sign are you? Do you feel you are like the characteristics of your sign?

I am a total Libra, always trying to consider all sides of an issue. I work hard to maintain balance (and feel guilty when I can’t!). I prefer harmony and cooperation, but I am always happy to participate in a debate (as long as it’s a friendly one).

Missionary or on Top?

Switch it up! Either one all the time? BORING.

Does size matter?

Only if you’re having sex. 😉

What is the last book you read?

I always have three or four books going. I just finished these: Making Waves by Ophelia London, Rules of Survival by Jus Accardo, and The Harvesting by Melanie Karsak. Loved them all!

What inspired you to write your first book?

The first novel I wrote was also recently released: Legally Undead (http://www.amazon.com/Legally-Undead-Vampirarchy-Book-1-ebook/dp/B00KKV44BK/). I’ve written for as long as I can remember, but I had never finished a novel until I finished that one. Ten years ago, my friend Bill suggested I give National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo.org) a try—for anyone who doesn’t know about it, the goal of NaNoWriMo participants is to write a 50,000-word novel in a month. I did that, and more, ending up with what was then a 100,000-word novel in six weeks. I’ve been writing books ever since!

If your book was made into a movie who would you want playing your characters?

Kylie: Emma Stone

Cole: Chris Hemsworth

LeeAnn: Jennifer Lawrence

Billie: Kirsten Dunst

How many novels, short stories have you published?

I published a short story when I was in graduate school in a university fiction journal. Other than that, I’ve published three novels, one novella, and a whole pile of academic articles and editions.

Is there any additional info you would like to share with your readers about what’s next for you and your books?

Yes! Taming the Country Star is the kick-off novella for the Hometown Heroes series. You’ll see Kylie and Cole again—and all of their friends and family, too!

Where can readers stalk…um…I mean, find you?

Country star Cole Grayson is in town, and Kylie Andrews is less than thrilled. As if months of changing the radio station and tearing down his posters weren’t bad enough, now she has to deal with a town of fans swarming toward the man who deceived her the year before. But when Kylie’s eyes meet Cole’s again, she can’t deny the electric chemistry that drew her to him the first time around.

Cole Grayson is on a mission. Ever since Kylie left him, he hasn’t been able to forget her sweet country smile. After writing a song just for her, he sets off for her hometown to prove he’s not the player she thinks he is. But as much as Cole can’t forget her, Kylie wonders if she can forgive him…

Book Synopsis: She’s in over her head and he’s in hot water…

Visiting her friends Ellie and Charlie in Hawaii was supposed to be a much-needed vacation for journalist Justine Simms. But when she learns the notoriously reclusive pro-surfer Chase Ryder is coming out of retirement for a competition, she knows she’s found the perfect exclusive to save her career. Of course, then she learns he’s the gorgeous, secretly nerdy guy who broke her heart a year ago.

Will Davenport—aka Chase Ryder—doesn’t do interviews. He keeps his real name out of the papers and doesn’t mix his public life with his private. That is, until the still-heartbroken Justine blackmails him into giving her an exclusive. Seeing Justine, stunningly beautiful as ever, brings back all the feelings he had before. But despite their smoldering attraction, nothing has changed since he had to leave her the first time.

VBT: Her Royal Protector by Alexandra Sellers @AlexndraSellers @IndulgenceBooks @SizzlingPR

HRPBlurb: Aly Percy is her family’s ugly duckling, and she’s never been allowed to forget it. So she knows better than to imagine that Cup Companion Arif al Najimi’s blue gaze holds anything but contempt for her as a woman, or ever will. But if he’s offering to show her just how wild one night with him can be, wouldn’t she be a fool to turn down his charity? She may never get another offer like this one.

Arif al Najimi isn’t sure why he’s dreaming about the little scientist who’s so determined to take crazy risks for the sake of her research into the endangered turtles of his country. But as luck would have it, he’s going to get the chance to do a little research of his own…into the question of why Aly believes her own negative publicity about how desirable she is—and how hard it will be to convince her of the truth.

VBT: Bound by Jason Walker @WriterJasWalker @SizzlingPR

Bound CoverBlurb: A BDSM Relationship can be the most intense of a person’s life and, the most trusting and loving.

Bound by leather, and unable to move, twenty-three-year-old Haley instinctively knows that tonight she and her Dominant Jerrod are about to share something very special.

With her sexual anticipation mounting by the second, her mind travels back to the first time she met this incredible sexual being. To say that Jerrod has changed her life is an understatement, because this most beautiful and charismatic of men has made her truly come alive for the first time.

She loves Jerrod to the point of adoration, and even when she challenges the boundaries he sets for her, he disciplines her with a dominant kindness that often brings her close to tears.

Will Jerrod take their relationship to the next level? And if he does, is Haley willing to be guided by her beautiful Master?

Authors Bio: Beginning his writing career in the 1980s, Jason Walker has 10 Novels and multiple short stories in print, and has won awards and accolades for his work.

 Excerpt:

It seemed that the harder she pulled against the restraints, the tighter they felt and the more she enjoyed it. Haley was truly bound, and her pleasure, her very existence, felt as if for him alone. Sitting prone in the center of the large room, she could only rely on her hearing and sense of smell to gain any hint of what was happening around her. The blindfold was the first piece in place and promised to be the last removed.

Before they began, Haley helped Jerrod remove his shoes. Now she searched the air with her ears for the sound of soft footfalls near or approaching. She had heard her man walk from the room after clicking the wrist restraints into place. Now the quiet was thunderous.

The blindfold had been first, but soon after that was the wide leather collar that kept Haley from bending her head too far forward. Jerrod had placed the bands next. The wide leather straps were wound around her chest and down to her waist. Separate, individual leather bindings were pulled into place on her legs, one around each thigh, and one around each ankle. She was unsure if they were connected as her Master had pushed her to her knees without allowing further movement. The process had taken close to an hour, a glorious, sensual hour for her.

What Haley considered odd was the fact that Jerrod had insisted that she was fully dressed before beginning. Her Master had carefully chosen her outfit, and an old white blouse, tattered jeans and undergarments now pressed against her skin by the restraints he had since applied to her. The cold steel of handcuffs clasped around her wrists and had clicked into place behind her back as the final act of preparation. But preparations for what? She had no idea but had agreed. She was nervous, even a little scared, but her arousal felt palpable.

She perceptibly flinched when Jerrod suddenly spoke. “My love, this night will be filled with pleasures and surprises. I have considered what I know of you, and a few things you may not have even realized about yourself. I plan to act on several of these things. Do you understand and wish to proceed?”

Haley trusted Jerrod completely, and simply nodded her agreement.

Lengthy discussions had preceded this night. There had even been a few test runs, and Haley found each one more exciting and satisfying than the last. Jerrod knew what his sub was willing to do, able to tolerate, wanted to try, and absolutely would not do. She trusted her Master, and knew with all her soul that he would not violate her wishes, while violating her. She wanted her boundaries pushed and in some cases broken, but she also did not want a few very specific things. Being specific was the paramount rule for him when they decided to enter into this special relationship. It had taken her a week to come up with her list of nevers, sometimes, and oftens. He laughed when he looked at the list she had made.
“The only thing on here that matter are the nevers. If it is a sometimes, or an often…well, those are the same thing.”
