Interview & Giveaway (US/Int): Up close and personal with Hunted’s Connlan Kayrs

Ever since reading Hunted, the third novel in Rebecca Zanetti’s Dark Protector series, I have had a massive crush on the hero, vampire badass Connlan Kayrs… like Bones-from-Night-Huntress massive.  When Hunted won GT’s Book of the Month award in May, I knew I just had to try for a Signature interview with him.  Apparently, I was in a spunky, nosey mood the day we met up, because I asked some fairly personal questions and Conn was… well, why don’t you check it out and see for yourself?! *grin*

Please help me welcome Connlan Kayrs from Rebecca Zanetti’s Dark Protector series!

A huge huge thank you goes out to Rebecca Zanetti for being such a great sport with this interview and for being so patient with my missed deadlines (man, moving is seriously bad for my productivity around here!)… and for letting me play with Conn.  *grin*  I had a blast and he behaved himself way better than I’d expected; in fact, he behaved himself a hell of a lot better than I did!  And gave me a birthday present – so sweet!!  <3 <3 <3  These Signature interviews are time-intensive on both the part of the GT interviewer and the author, so I truly appreciate all the effort Ms. Zanetti put into this.  I hope you guys enjoyed it!

There’s a giveaway below that you definitely won’t want to miss, but first here’s a little more info on the books referenced in this interview…

Ready Or Not

Moira Dunne is a witch–the quantum physics kind. Time and space are her playthings. Which might explain why her one-night stand from a hundred years ago has turned up to “claim” her–and request her family’s assistance with the war he’s brewing. But the more she learns about Connlan Kayrs, the more she comes to think this is normal behavior for him. . .

There’s Nowhere To Hide

When Conn and Moira tumbled on the moonlit grass, Conn hadn’t meant to mark her as his mate for all time. She was only twenty! But it wasn’t easy to wait for her. It was even harder to forget her. So when he finally returns for his wicked-hot witch, he’s ready to let the sparks fly. Even if he burns up in flames. . .

Sometimes You Mate For Life

Katie Smith is the best of her class, part of an elite hunting force trained to eliminate werewolves from the hills of Western Virginia. She’s good at it because she has the kind of focus and drive that won’t back down no matter how steep the odds. Call it southern sass. Whatever it is, there’s no denying her willingness to risk everything for the only man she’s ever cared about–a man on the verge of losing his very humanity. . .

Sometimes You Mate To Stay Alive

For the past ten years Jordan Pride has dedicated his life to protecting his people from a deadly shifter virus. But in a rare moment of distraction, Jordan’s guard drops just long enough for his fate to take an irreversible twist. Unless the woman he loves surrenders everything to him, again and again, under a full moon rising. . .
