Book Tour: Dangerously Hers by A. M. Griffin Interview & Giveaway

Loving Dangerously, Book Three Jess hates aliens. After the invasion that destroyed Earth, the extraterrestrial bastards sold her to a brothel as a sex slave. She may have escaped but the old memories and fears still linger in the dark corners of her mind. Supposedly Sonis is just the place for her—somewhere safe, where she can heal and start fresh. She’s almost hopeful…until she meets Rasha, her new boss.

Rasha, Captain of the Sonis Royal Guard, is a warrior through and through. He’s huge, sinfully sexy and could have any woman on Sonis—but the woman he wants is Jess. He’s very much an alien and Jess knows she should hate him or at least be wary, but whenever he’s around, she loses control. She tells herself it’s only sex—amazing, mind-blowing sex like nothing else she’s ever experienced—but there’s something about Rasha that shakes her soul. The feel of his skin against hers, the look in his eyes as he touches her—they make her want to believe it’s possible to find love and begin again.

He inhaled sharply. “I can smell you.” Then he let his gaze drop to crotch.

Her hands instinctively dropped to shield herself.

She gasped as he dropped to his knees. “What are you doing?”

He wrapped his arms around her and cradled her ass. Her mouth dropped open as he nuzzled his nose between her thighs. “I can take care of this…you.”

She dug her nails into his shoulder blades. Should she push him away or keep him where he was?

He made a sound so animalistic. So hot and sexy that it made her pussy respond in ways she didn’t want it to.

“That’s it.” He sniffed into her.

His fingers worked in unison to massage her ass, all the while pulling her onto his face. She tried to stand her ground even when she rocked to her toes.

He looked up to her with eyes smoldering with heat. “Can I do it Jess?”

She blinked, trying to remember his question. “Do…do what?”

“Lick you until you until you come.”

Oh God.

Her knees buckled.

“I want to taste you. I want to bury my face in your pussy. I want to…to…” Growling, he bit her.

  1. Where did you get the idea for the novel?
I had already written Dangerously Mine and Dangerously Yours. I had intended to write about JB (one of the characters from Dangerously Yours). JB was going to drop Jess, one of his best friends off at Sonis to start her new life. But from the first line, Jess’ character had taken over. I tried for a month to regain JB’s perspective, but Jess being strong willed wouldn’t allow it. Finally I gave in, intending to write a novella, but my hopes of a 15k book turned into a 25k then upwards to 45k until I finally ended it in the 50k range. Jess had a lot more to say than I had originally planned for her to. In the end I was glad that I had told her story.
  1. Your title. Who came up with it? Did you ever change your title?
I wanted to keep with the series theme of Dangerously (Dangerously Mine and Dangerously Yours). Her story was always Dangerously Hers. Rasha is hers so it was fitting. However, Dangerously Mine was changed a few times. The original title was Taken: Eva, but since EC already had a book titled Taken I had to change it. After a few title tries, my editor and I settled on Dangerously Mine.
  1. Why did you pick this genre? What do you like about it?
I love watching and reading science fiction so it was an easy choice. I like that sci-fi allows me use my imagination and creativity to shape and build new and exciting worlds and characters. The only downfall about writing sci-fi is that you have to find a way to remember the world that you built. I have a very large Excel spreadsheet that I use to track everything I write. It comes in very handy when I want to remember the name of a planet or food or even a nickname that I’ve given someone.
  1. Since becoming a writer, what’s the most exciting thing to ever happen to you?
I can honestly say having a reader come up to me and tell me that they’ve read my stories. I think I’m more excited than they are when we meet!
  1. What book are you currently reading or what was the last book you read?
I just finished reading Ender’s Game. I've never read it before, so when the movie came out I decided that I wanted to read the book first before I saw the movie. It’s a wonderful book by the way.
  1. What is your writing process?
I don’t think I’ve developed it yet. I sit and try to write. Sometimes I get distracted by the television or the internet. Ask me that question in about 5 years (LOL).
  1. At a book signing, do you just sign your name or do you write a note? How do you come up with stuff to say? I write a little note, but I try to keep it as brief as possible. I’m so afraid that I’ll mess up the message so I opt for their name and mine and a thank you. Maybe when I become sure of myself I’ll write long nice notes, but until then, short or sweet.
  2. What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I’m a registered nurse by day. I think people would be surprised to find that out since I don’t write anything medically related.
  1. How do you react to a bad review?
Reviews, reviews, reviews. I think I react as anyone would in any situation, but I realize that not every book is for every person.
  1. How did you celebrate the sale of your first book?
There was a lot of screaming and crying and laughing. I was so beside myself that I scared my daughter and dog. That first sale will forever be the greatest.

    I loved this part of your Q/A., had tears in my eyes imagining it. Warmest wishes and continued success

    1. Thank you Elise! So many emotions with that first book. I was on a roller-coaster, going and then down.

  2. "Sometimes I sit and get distracted [when trying to write]". =P Good to know! I've often wanted to write myself, but I can barely read a book so I often wonder how in the world I could string together a full sentence! Glad I'm not the only one who doesn't always focus what I'm trying to do. Thanks for sharing! ^_^
