One of my favorite authors and and a friend of mine, Magen McMinimy tagged me. She started a game of tag. Magen tagged me and several other authors. So I’m tagging Magen and a few others. I’ll list them down below.
Here’s how this works. I’m going to tell you about Falling Into Place, my newest book in the Others of Edenton Series, include an exerpt, and then give you my dream cast for Falling and the rest of the Others. Oh boy that’s going to be tough.
The authors I tag will do the same about their most current project, nad give you the same sort of things.
1) Talk about your most current project.
Falling Into Place by Brandy L Rivers
Others of Edenton: Book 3
Brandy L Rivers
Robert would have done anything for Liz, even let her go when she claimed she needed to be alone. With his life in shambles, he dove into his work as a Silver Council enforcer.
Liz never fit in, but to protect her first love, she walked away when a wild burst of magic nearly killed him. Tremaine found her, and helped her put her life back together.
The man who tore her world apart awakes from a 21 year slumber with revenge on his mind. Nothing will stop James from tearing the power from Liz’s body.
After learning James is alive, Robert rushes to Liz and bands together with Tremaine to keep her safe. Facing her worst fears Liz realizes she can only fall apart or fall into place.
** Spoiler/Fair Warning **
The romance winds up in a permanent threesome
2) Exerpt – this one was hard. I asked a few and they told me the shower scene, but… um… I didn’t want to post one quite that steaming hot 😉
Robert grinned. “You like to be difficult, so maybe it’s a good thing I love you.”
Liz shook her head and looked away. “Look, Robert, it’s been a really long time, and you don’t know that anymore. Maybe you loved what I was, but it wasn’t enough.”
That was a knife twisting in his heart. He closed the distance and took her face in his hands, looking deep into her eyes. “Why do you say that?”
Tears filled her eyes. “If you loved me, you would have fought for me. You didn’t. You let me walk away, Robert. You didn’t even try, so you must not love me as much as you thought you did.”
“I love you so damned much that I did what you told me to do even though it shattered my heart.” Her eyes closed. He stepped between her legs, and brushed a gentle kiss over her trembling lips. “I love you, Liz, so much it shattered me to let you go, but you told me that’s what you needed and I gave it to you like a fool. You told me to let you go, not to follow, that was what you wanted and needed.” His voice broke and he put his forehead against hers. “Every day since then has been hell. I never stopped loving you, never stopped needing you, I never stopped wishing you still loved me, even as I watched from a distance.”
When she finally looked up at him, her voice was so small. “Really?”
“Really, love. I’m not leaving you again. I can’t, not now. No matter how many times you beg me to leave, I’ve learned my lesson and I’m not leaving your side.”
Her tears spilled over. “And what about Tremaine?” She closed her eyes, and he heard the desperation in her voice. “I won’t shut him out. I…,” she only hesitated a second, “I love him every bit as much as I love you. I think I always have. I can’t let him go for you, even if you walking away would break me beyond mending. I can’t have one of you without the other, not anymore.”
Tremaine stepped in beside Robert. His voice was soft. “You do, Liz?” Robert looked over to find him looking as lost as Liz had only a moment before.
A sad smile lifted her lips as she nodded. He took her hands. “I’m not leaving you, Liz. Hell, I’ve never left you since I found you. I’ll always be here for you.”
3) Dream Cast – I don’t really see actors in my roles. I have a very clear vision of my characters… but let’s give this a go. Oh, and I’ll just name them so I don’t run into copyright issues with pictures 😉
Liz AKA Elizandra Delacroix – Emmy Rossum (maybe… she’s hard)
Robert McCallister – Alex Pettyfer is almost right… not quite, but I’ll go with it
Tremaine Gallagher – Jason Momoa (close, again, he’s hard because I have a very strong image in my head)
Fallon O’Shea – Teresa Palmer (She’d need tattooes and red hair… but uh.. yeah, this is another impossible one because who I see in my head isn’t like anyone)
Brody Dean – Chris Hemsworth (Sorry Magen, but it’s true. He’s the closest I see to Brody)
Amethyst Lakes – Amanda Siefried (another hard, never gonna find the right one)
Hayden Hunter – Kellan Lutz (Thank you Magen, I couldn’t come up with one 😉 )
Jess Slater and Jamie Abrams – Katie Hudson (they are twins, it works)
C. Slater – Charlie Hunnam (originally he was blond… until I realized how many blonds I had in Edenton)
Lincoln – Michael Early (he’s not bulked up yet, but he’s going to be)
Dacia – Kiera Knightly
Preston – Colton Hayes
Victoria – Monica Bellucci
James – McCallister – Jamie Cambell Bower
Emily McCallister – Emma Stone
Tomahawk and Dakota – Martin Sensmeier
That’s all I can come up with for the moment. And those aren’t perfect by any stretch, but the closest I’m coming after thinking about it way way way too long.
