And the fun continues....Welcome Cassie Ryan!

For the final week of my celebration month, I am spotlighting the one and only Cassie Ryan. Cassie is both colleague and friend and it's my pleasure to have her here talking about life, time and Miss America. Well...maybe not exactly, but close enough. You know how my interviews go. You may learn something fun and you may not. :)

So diving right into the exciting interview....

Erin: Welcome, Cassie and congratulations on the release of the final book in the Trio of Seduction series! I know you have fans who were anxiously awaiting the conclusion (and will now be morose over knowing there isn't another one coming!) pun intended of course.

Okay, to launch into the questions. If you were in the "Miss America" talent competition, what would your talent be?

div>Cassie: Hmm, I think I’d have to do instrumental – something on clarinet or saxophone. I’d suck as a cheerleader, baton twirler, singer, dancer or

Erin: Well I probably wouldn't make it to the talent part. They'd boo me off after the swimsuit show. Lucky for me I'm smart and have a great personality, right? ha ha.

Okay, next question: If you had one extra hour of free time a day, how would you use it?

Cassie: A nice hot bath and a good book :)

Erin: There is a reason why we are friends, m'dear. That is my answer exactly. My kids say that I don't bathe, I marinate. I see nothing wrong with that.

Based on something you've already done, how might you make it into the Guinness Book of World Records?

Cassie: Uhhh....number of times I’ve re-read my favorite books, number of times I’ve told my son to pick up his socks off the floor, number of times I can curse at my characters within one scene when they aren’t listening? LOL! Don’t really think I’ve done anything that’ll get me close to record breaking yet :) But who knows, there’s always tomorrow.

Erin: I think I could qualify with the picking up socks off the floor times 2. (two daughters). It's enough to make a person nuts. The cursing my characters--it's more likely they are cursing me. Interesting and totally unrelated world record I recently learned about? Sabering Champagne Bottles. Seriously, there's a record. 21 bottles in 1 minute. I met the guy who broke it (You can watch the video here)

Okay, enough of that. Now for what we REALLY want to know: Tell us about your latest release and why YOU think we’ll love it.

Cassie: Trio of Seduction is the third book in my Seduction Trilogy and released at the end of July.

The moment she lays eyes on him, Dr. Kiera Matthews is mesmerized by the rugged, sexually charged man who is at once her saviour from danger and a sworn enemy of her mother's people. Yet, as he stands before her, pulsing with physical energy, Kiera feels an irresistible longing stirring deep within her. And when he speaks, his voice alone sends waves of desire through her body...a body that will soon discover its own sensual force. For Kiera is destined to reunite their estranged races - by joining herself with this man whose mission it has been to find her...As the 10th Prince of Klatch, an otherwordly clan whose sexual energy is their life force, Ryan has been searching for his future mate - the Healer who will help him restore his dying world. Now he has found her in the form of a fair-haired hellion born of an enemy society. But he has no doubt Kiera is his destiny. As a being who requires sex to survive, Ryan's fantasies were always filled with darkly beautiful women. But now it is this strong-willed blonde whom he craves and is determined to show her the most potent pleasure...

Trio brings back all the characters from Ceremony & Vision including the wonderfully evil bad guys—Queen Sela, her consort & Marco—as well as the Klatch, Tador and all the fun things like ponga and balda :) There’s more kick-butt action, hot, smoking-hot sex, a touching romance, snarky humor and a fast-paced story that all leads up to the final battle of good vs. evil.

Join me to find out what happens!

Nice interview, ladies.

An hour in a bathtub with a good book is a favorite pleasure of mine, too.

Cassie, the excerpts to all 3 books in your Seduction trilogy are wickedly sexy. Keira in TRIO OF SEDUCTION is one fesity, kick-ass heroine. I think I will have to start at the beginning of this trilogy soon. Oh, btw, those covers are smokin hot!!

Cassie Ryan said...

Thanks for stopping by Armenia!
Glad you enjoyed the excerpts and hope you enjoy the series :)

Jennifer Ashley/ Allyson James / Ashley Gardner said...

Congrats on the release of the last of your trilogy, Cassie! You're a terrific writer of the hot! :-) And I'm right there with you on the bath and book. In fact, that sounds good right now...

Cassie Ryan said...

Hi Jennifer! Thanks for stopping by and commenting :) You're quite the writer of "the hot" yourself, so I'll take that as a huge compliment coming from you! :)

Aurora said...

I used to live in a condo with a Garden tub that I LOVED! I would stretch out and just mellow! Now I am in a townhouse with a standard tub..... It sucks!!!!

Cassie Ryan said...

A garden tub sounds amazing!! I sooo want one of those :)

Erin Quinn said...

I dream of a deep claw foot tub in a garden room. Sigh.

Alexis Walker said...

Hey Cassie,

Make that a hot tub and I'm on board!

I can't wait to read the last of your trilogy. I love your characters and so glad they will be back in this one. How can I help but love the SEDUCTION?

Cassie Ryan said...

Thanks Alexis! :)

I'm thinking I'm going to have to do some serious scenes involving huge garden tubs in some of my next books! :)

Cathy M said...

Hi Cassie, I can't believe I haven't started this series yet. The excerpts were fantastic, and definitely made my tbb list.

buddyt said...

annalisa said...

Loved the excerpts for your books. Your Seduction trilogy sounds hot! Congrats on the release of the last book in the trilogy! :)

I've never heard of a garden tub before either, but it does sound good. I consider myself very lucky that our upstairs bathroom has a huge claw foot bathtub.

Just read about your blog visit here in Erin's newsletter and wanted to take the opportunity to drop by and tell you how much I enjoyed the first two of the Trio of Seduction series! The new release is definitely on the tops of my mile long TBB list.

PS - I'm not a bath person but I love long pounding showers. I'd love a rainfall head with a handheld as well!
