Extremely Excited to welcome Jake from Hard to Hold by Stephanie Tyler …and Chris & Nick

JAKE, thank you for agreeing to an interview today on my blog.

Can I personally say, I am excited to finally meet you!

Jake:  It’s not the first time we’ve met…remember last year when we got together and…oh right, yeah, good to meet you, Greta. 

Can you tell readers a little bit about yourself, your brothers Nick & Chris, as well as Isabelle?

Nick:  Did you see my review in RT?  They’re calling my book edgy and sexy.

Jake: My book was called brilliant in that review.  So yeah, back to me…

Chris:  The trilogy is about the three of us – Navy SEALs and brothers by adoption.

Greta: Nick, Chris nice of you to join us. You do know you were both going to get your own interviews, right?

Jake:  *muttering*  I’m so going to ruin all your interviews.

Nick:  And in Hard to Hold, Jake gets all whipped by Izzy.

Jake:  Yeah, Kaylee does a pretty good job on you, brother.

Nick:  Gotta run.

I understand that your story Hard to Hold is being released today, can you tell the readers about it?

Jake:  Well, the blurb’s pretty cool, because you know, warrior and all.  Check this out:

Maximum danger.
Maximum desire. 
And holding on for dear life…

The Special Ops hero feared nothing -until he met a woman too hot to hold…

Lt. Jake Hansen has survived some of the riskiest missions known to man. But now the wounded Navy SEAL faces his toughest job yet: Smuggling Dr. Isabelle Markham out of Africa without triggering an international incident. Not easy to do when the gorgeous hostage happens to be a senator’s daughter —and about as easy to resist as an oasis in the desert…

If it weren’t for Jake, Isabelle would still be halfway across the world, where rebel forces left her for dead. The Special Ops warrior may have saved her life, but she doesn’t need him to protect her now. Tell that to the ruggedly handsome hunk in full battle fatigues who’s just been assigned Isabelle’s personal bodyguard. Close quarters aside, Isabelle won’t let Jake anywhere near her heart — until danger throws them together again…and nothing in the jungles of wildest Africa could prepare them for a passion this wild. This crazy. This hot….

Jake:  So basically, I save Isabelle and…

Isabelle:  And I call you on your shit.

Chris:  Oh, she shoots, she scores!

Jake:  Greta, you said this was my interview, remember?

I understand you know Stephanie Tyler and that she actually wrote your story Hard to Hold. What was it like working with her?

Jake: She’s pretty cool.  Pain in the ass stubborn though, so I guess that’s why we get along.

Have you read Hard to Hold yet? What did you think of it?

Jake:  Well…hey, what are you doing here?

Steph: I’ve got more bookmarks for you to hand out. So, what did you think of Hard to Hold?

Jake: I think you told all my secrets.

Steph:  *shrugs*  Whatever.  I also brought you together with Isabelle, so let’s remember that when you’re hand selling your book.

Jake:  Do you see what I have to put up with?

If Hard to Hold was made into a movie, which actor do you see portraying you, Isabelle, your brothers?

Jake:  They’re making a movie of my book – did you hear that?

Nick:  She said, if, man.  If it was made into a movie…

Jake:  When it is, I’m going to make sure your part is cut.

Nick:  You’re not answering the question.

Jake:  Screw it. 

I’m sure you know that Stephanie is a member of the Writeminded Readers Yahoo Group, and you’ve already developed a huge following 🙂 How does it make you feel when you hear about readers screaming JAKE!!!!!!!!! How does Isabelle feel?

Jake:  Well, yeah, I like women screaming out my name.  *looks over shoulder for Isabelle*   Well, now I like one woman to do that, but you know…before…

Will readers see you, Isabelle or your brothers in the future?

Jake:  Nick’s got his story out January 5, 2010 – and Chris January 26, 2010 – you’ll see me and Isabelle in that one.  For Nick’s book, I was ah, busy, you know?

Chris:  I’m in all three books.  So yeah, being last does have its advantages.

Nick: Yeah, the advantage of a pink cover.

Jake:  Could the both of you get the hell out of here now?

Can you tell us something about Stephanie that readers may not know?

Jake:  I don’t think her husband knows she screams out my name.

Is there anything you would like to ask the readers?

Jake: Are you all going to keep screaming out my name?

Where can readers find information about Stephanie on the internet?

Jake:  Check out her website at www.StephanieTyler.com.  And buy my book…or I’ll hunt you down.

***Leave a comment asking Jake or Stephanie any questions about Hard To Hold and one lucky comment will win an autographed copy. Good Luck 🙂
