Amber Daulton lives her life by that one belief even though she normally isn’t so Zen.As a fan of contemporary, paranormal, and historical romance novels alike, she can’t get enough of feisty heroines and alpha heroes. Her mind is a wonderland of adventure, laughter, and awesome ways of kicking a guy when he’s down. She probably wouldn’t be too sane without her computer and notebooks. After all, what’s a girl to do when people are jabbering away in her head and it’s hard to shut them up? Write! Nothing else works.
Character InterviewBeverley: What’s your name?
Mason: Mason Harding. Yeah, I know it’s a little funny. Mason means “stone worker,” and Harding means “hardness.” It’s like my parents didn’t want me to grow up and be a soft guy. Guess that worked in my favor.
Beverley: Where did you grow up?
Mason: Aurora, Colorado is my hometown, and I grew up in a little suburb of the city. You know the drill. The damn neighborhood was all two-story houses, okay-sized yards, and white picket fences, but I’ve always preferred the urban areas. More stuff to do, and unfortunately for me in my stupid teen years, more places to get into trouble.
Beverley: During what time period does your story take place?
Mason: It’s a present day story. I moved to Denver to live with my brother after several years away, but let me tell you. Location and time means nothing when the past wants to haunt your ass. I learned that real quick.
Beverley: What’s your story/back story? Why would someone come up with a story about you?
Mason: My author, Amber, is a little nutty. I mean, I guess I got a good story to tell, but I didn’t think anyone would want to read about it. I’ve made a lot of mistakes, some of which are embarrassing, but I’ve moved on with my life. I’m not ashamed of myself, and I like myself for the most part. I went to prison for ten years for a stupid, drunken mistake, but now I’m a free man. I’m determined to do right and stay out of trouble. It’s difficult, yeah, but I’m a stubborn man. I also have a good woman in my life. Mia is everything to me, so I’ll do what I must to stay away from my past.
Beverley: What’s your goal in this story?
Mason: Staying out of trouble, and then keeping Mia safe when trouble finds me.
Beverley: What conflicts are you facing?
Mason: Mia’s brother, Jim, is my parole officer, and he acted like a first rate jerk after he found out about us. If dealing with Jim wasn’t bad enough, I made some enemies in prison and then ran into them on the outside. On top of that, some old friends from before I went to prison found me and wouldn’t leave me the hell alone.
Beverley: Do you have a plan for resolving them?
Mason: Yeah, sort of. I’m just taking it one day at a time, doing what I can to keep my head above water. Even though I got trouble coming at me from three sides, Mia is sticking by me. If not for her, who knows where I’d be right now. I owe Mia a lot.
Beverley: Is there anything else you’d like us to know about you?
Mason: Well, I could tell ya a bunch more, but I’d rather not get into the nitty-gritty details here. I’ll save that for Amber’s book.
Thanks for me interviewing me, Beverley. It’s been great.
Blurb for Arresting Mason:
Their chance encounter resulted in a steamy affair, but will his former gang and a parole officer tear them apart?Once you’re in a prison gang, you’re in it for life. That’s what Mason Harding thought until the boss accepted his resignation. After the State releases him on parole, a sexy divorcée behind the wheel of a car almost ends his life quicker than a shank. His chance encounter with Mia Eddison results in a night of passion, but her brother—his parole officer—catches them together and doesn’t approve.
Mia falls hard for the cocky ex-con, but not because of his chiseled body. She vows to break through his walls and discover his secrets, but never expects those secrets to threaten her life. When members of an organized crime ring kidnap Mia to force Mason’s return to the gang, he goes up against an old friend to save the woman he loves. Will his sacrifice be enough or will everything fall apart in a blaze of gunfire?
“Which one is your car?” She glanced around the crowded parking lot. A few streetlights pushed back the darkness and shadows. The restaurant served customers until midnight on the weekends, but no one loitered in the lot, at least from what Mia could see.“Don’t have one at the moment.” Mason hooked his thumbs in the belt loops of his jeans. “I took the bus. It stopped a few blocks from here.”
“Would you like a ride?” She pulled the car keys from her purse. “I feel a little ridiculous we met here tonight. I just wasn’t sure if you were some kind of freak.”
His eyebrow lifted, and he closed the distance between them as a tiger would zero in on its mate. A sexy, masculine smile curled his lips. “Have you made up your mind yet?”
“I’ll let you know in the morning.” Desire trickled down her spine. Mia nodded toward the passenger side of the car for him to hop in.
He confiscated her keys instead to unlock and open the driver’s side door for her like a gentleman. Then he leaned closer and nuzzled her temple with his nose.
Not sure if he planned to seduce her in the parking lot or if he merely wanted to tease her, Mia pressed her hand to his chest and tried to think straight. “You’re the first guy I’ve gone on a date with since my divorce. I haven’t slept with anyone since Evan.” He tunneled his fingers through her wavy, chestnut-brown hair. “I haven’t dated anyone in a long time either. We’ll take it slow or fast, whatever you want, but I promise you one thing. After I’m done with you, you won’t even remember that bastard’s name.”
“Oh, God. She almost melted right then and there. “Fast. I want you, Mason.”
“Take me to your place and you can have me.”
