Interview with Amelia from Her Guardian Angel and Giveaway

Interview with Amelia from Her Guardian Angel

Thank you Melissa for inviting me here today as part of my Paranormal Pandemonium 2011 Blog Tour, and in particular the Her Angel series section of it that celebrates the series and the release of the fourth book / first novel, Her Guardian Angel. It’s great to be back at Spellbound by Books!

I’ve already introduced the series and a little about the book at other blog stops on my tour, and I’ve interviewed the hero of Her Guardian Angel, Marcus, so now it’s time to sit down with the heroine, Amelia, and get her perspective on their story. But before I do that, I need to introduce myself to everyone who isn’t familiar with me.

My name is Felicity Heaton and I write paranormal romances and science fiction romances under than name, and also as F E Heaton. You might have seen me around this blog as I haunt it regularly. I’ve been writing since 2005, and turned indie in 2006. I mostly write vampires and werewolves, but have the odd shape-shifter, demon or witch in the mix, and of course, I write angels.

If you’re new to Her Guardian Angel, I’ll try to describe Amelia. She’s sitting across from me today on a very comfortable looking purple velvet armchair and she’s sporting a sleek black bob that I presume is a wig because that isn’t her normal hair colour. A pair of dark sunglasses hide her grey eyes from view and she’s head to toe in tight black clothing, which definitely isn’t like her. It’s more like Taylor, the heroine from Her Warrior Angel, and I have to wonder whether this is an attempt to remain incognito. She does have some powerful foes after her. Her smile is a little hesitant. She’s a woman who can handle herself but it seems she’s concerned about being away from Marcus, even though he’s only in the other room.

Since she looks nervous, I’ll get on with the interview.

FH: I have Amelia here with me today to talk about her book, Her Guardian Angel. Firstly, can you tell us a little about yourself?

AMELIA: I certainly can. Telling readers about myself will probably be the easiest of the questions you’re going to make me answer. I can’t give away any juicy details about my story, can I? (shakes head) Shame. Okay, so a little about myself. I’m British, and was raised in a small countryside town, but I moved to London as soon as I could and started moving around jobs there. I had terrible luck with men before Marcus came along. Oh, I guess I probably still have terrible luck with men, since Marcus isn’t exactly a man. He’s an angel, literally. It was strange trying to compute that, but made a hell of a lot easier by the method I discovered that little fact about him. I’m in my early thirties and figured that I was probably going to coast through life and maybe find a good man and a good job and everything would get better for me. Well, it did, but I went through Hell to get there, and my job and my good man are nothing like I anticipated.

FH: Can you tell us about what happened in your story?

AMELIA: Without giving away too much, it will be difficult. I never suspected that Marcus was an angel, or that he had been watching over me my whole life, or that said life was going to get horribly like a nightmare. I’ve never believed in supernatural stuff, or gods and evil things like the Devil. It was a real eye opener when Marcus saved me from some demonic angels and I knew right then that my life would never be the same, but I could never have guessed just how much it was going to change. I don’t think I would be here today if it wasn’t for Marcus and his friends. I know that we had some rocky times, but the course of true love never did run smooth, right?

FH: Definitely right. How did you meet Marcus and how did you feel about him initially?

AMELIA: One day the guy next door was gone and Marcus was there. I thought my poor choice in men had driven him away with their late night visits to bang down my door and cuss at me. I passed the usual polite greetings with Marcus whenever we met in the hallway but he seemed so cold and detached. He didn’t speak to anyone in the building and broadcasted an air of “leave me alone” so I did just that. I didn’t really take much notice of him until the night that he punched Mike, my ex, who was doing his usual bang-the-door-down-at-3am routine. I couldn’t fail to notice Marcus then. The man is a god. Scratch angel. He’s a god. My sister would love him because he’s smart and sexy, two qualities she loves in a man. Once I really took Marcus in... I mean, he was only wearing jogging bottoms and looked incredibly sexy with his sleep-mussed unruly black hair... what sort of woman would I be if I didn’t ogle him? Where was I? Oh, yeah, once I took a moment to see Marcus properly for the first time, I was smitten. It was just a shame that he was still so distant. I tried my hardest to get him to open up, and eventually it worked. He’s a different person now. It almost feels as though I had imagined him as he was back then. He even laughs with his angel friends these days... well, when he isn’t training me until I’m close to passing out and giving me that sexy serious warrior look of his.

FH: Sounds as though Marcus has really done a 180! You should be proud of your achievement. It must have been difficult for you at first though. It’s not every day an angel walks into your life and saves you, and then reveals that you’re still in danger.

AMELIA: I think I was in shock at first, but it was hard to deny what I saw. Marcus in armour, albeit without wings, wielding two blades, and fighting against two black skinned immense demons to protect me. Once you’ve witnessed something like that, it’s sort of difficult to pretend you saw nothing and that none of it was real, just a figment of your imagination. When Marcus took me to see Einar, his angel friend, and Taylor, Einar’s half-demon woman, and I finally saw Marcus’s wings for the first time, I knew right then that as difficult as it was for me, I had to accept the reality that angels existed. I think I found it hardest to accept that it meant that God and the Devil were real too... although it didn’t take very long for me to believe that they were, and they weren’t as I had been led to believe. Marcus was so intent on protecting me, is still intent on it, that I couldn’t doubt him or anything he said, and realising that he’s an angel led me to an epiphany about him with the help of Einar. Once I knew more about Marcus, I knew that I wanted to be with him, regardless of the fact that he was an angel. I wanted to love him, and wanted to open his eyes to his feelings for me.

FH: How has life been since the events that happened and brought you together?

AMELIA: It’s been really busy, although Marcus tries to find time for quiet moments together as well as perpetual training. I know how important it is to him that we’re ready to face whatever comes after us, and that an extra hour of training might mean the difference between survival and death for us both, so I don’t complain about it unless he’s worked me to the bone, and then I just snap! When he goes too far, he makes it up to me in the sweetest ways, and he’s been very good about making sure that the locations we move to are beautiful and peaceful, and places where I can snatch a few hours of bliss with him every so often. I like to think of it as a reward for my hard work. I’m sure if I started slacking off, the next place we moved to would be somewhere like Antarctica rather than small tropical islands. I know he chooses them because we’re harder to locate in such remote places, but sometimes I think he’s growing to like all that white sand and warm water regardless of what he says about it. It’s our little slice of paradise.

FH: Sounds like it, although it would be more like paradise without the hard training. Your story, Her Guardian Angel, is a book in the Her Angel series. Can you tell us a little about the series and can we expect see more of you in other stories in this series?

AMELIA: I think you can definitely expect to see more from me and Marcus in future stories in the series, as well as more of the other angels and their women too. I feel as though I should read the novellas you wrote about Apollyon and Serenity, Lukas and Annelie, and Einar and Taylor so I can learn more about them, and maybe get some dirt on them too. They have so much on me and Marcus that they’re merciless once they start teasing. It would be nice to have something in my arsenal to use on them. We’ve become very close since the events that happened in my story, almost like family, but they can’t replace my real family, and it’s my sister and dad that I’m worried about now.

FH: Describe yourself in one word?

AMELIA: Strong. Marcus tells me it all the time. He says he’s never met someone as strong as I am, and I guess I have to be in order to face everything that I have.

FH: Thank you for meeting with me today and chatting. Is there anything else that you’d like to add?

AMELIA: Only that I think everyone should rush out and get their hands on a copy of my story, Her Guardian Angel, so they can fall for Marcus in the way that I did... although, I have to say now ladies, he is mine, and I’ll be keeping him forever if I can.

Her Guardian Angel
A simple mission becomes a fight for survival in this fantastic instalment in the Her Angel series.

A guardian angel dedicated to his duty, Marcus will do whatever Heaven asks of him, but even his loyalty has its limits. When his superior orders him to gain Amelia’s trust through seduction, Marcus starts to question his mission and his feelings for the beautiful woman he has watched over since her birth.

Amelia has gone from one bad relationship to another, so when a gorgeous guy moves in next door looking like Mr Right, she hopes he doesn’t turn out to be another black knight in disguise. But there’s more to Marcus than meets the eye, and when he rescues her from three demonic men, Amelia is thrust into his nightmarish world—a world where God and the Devil exist, and only one angel can save her from death—Marcus, the angel she’s falling in love with.

On the run from demonic angels and the Devil himself, aided by Marcus’s angel friends and their amazing women, fighting for survival against the odds, Marcus and Amelia discover a love that will last forever.

A love so strong it will shake Heaven and Hell.

Felicity Heaton is a romance author writing as both Felicity Heaton and F E Heaton. She is passionate about penning paranormal tales full of vampires, witches, werewolves, angels and shape-shifters, and has been interested in all things preternatural and fantastical since she was just a child. Her other passion is science-fiction and she likes nothing more than to immerse herself in a whole new universe and the amazing species therein. She used to while away days at school and college dreaming of vampires, werewolves and witches, or being lost in space, and used to while away evenings watching movies about them or reading gothic horror stories, science-fiction and romances.

Having tried her hand at various romance genres, it was only natural for her to turn her focus back to the paranormal, fantasy and science-fiction worlds she enjoys so much. She loves to write seductive, sexy and strong vampires, werewolves, witches, angels and alien species. The worlds she often dreams up for them are vicious, dark and dangerous, reflecting aspects of the heroines and heroes, but her characters also love deeply, laugh, cry and feel every emotion as keenly as anyone does. She makes no excuses for the darkness surrounding them, especially the paranormal creatures, and says that this is their world. She’s just honoured to write down their adventures.
