Tara Quan is my author-sister at Decadent Publishing, and we both have new releases about one night stands, which basically makes us twins. So, while she's scoping out my hero on her blog, I have the hero of her new release, Khalid Al Dehri, all to myself. Let's see what we can get out of him before I have to return him...
1) Kal (you don't mind if I call you Kal, do you?), I understand you're a sheikh. What exactly does a sheikh do?
Hello Sara. Of course you may call me Kal. No one aside from my mother calls me Khalid, and she only does so when she’s angry. Sheikh is a somewhat archaic term denoting specific Arab bloodlines. It gets bandied about now and then when people want to feel important. It doesn’t mean much. There are poor sheikhs and there are rich sheikhs, and there are also people who just name their son “sheikh” for reasons I can’t fathom. My father happens to be a sheikh, so I am one by default.
2) Gosh, you have the Sexiest accent. Where exactly is it from?
I went to boarding school in England. I’m not certain if I speak the Queen’s English, but it should be pretty close.
3) What do you find attractive about the way a woman dresses?
It would depend entirely on the woman. You, for example, would look stunning in a crimson dress. Red is one of my favorite colors.
4) What about favorite foods, if I was, say, thinking of fixing your favorite meal for you?
Honey is one of my many vices. I would travel quite a distance to find the perfect Baklava.
5) If you were stranded in the airport with an attractive woman, what do you think would happen?
An airport would be an extremely inconvenient location for a romantic liaison. There are so many logistical difficulties. If said beauty were to make advances, I would politely suggest we pursue the matter further in a more private place. After all, my family owns property in most of the world’s major cities.
Fascinating... Thanks so much for your time, Kal. I am off to buy and crimson dress. Then I better check in on how Tara is treating my hero, Rob, on her blog...
Stranded in a Middle Eastern airport, Michelle Day finds herself the object of interest for an abrasive, but all-too-sexy stranger—a stranger who tempts her with the forbidden in a land where indecency could get her killed. But how does one say no to such a deliciously, relentless pursuit?
Khalid Al Dehri takes one look at the red-headed spitfire in the business class lounge and knew he’d either been transported to heaven—or hell. Her tart response to his surliness intrigues him beyond all propriety and the longer he spends in her company, the more he can’t deny his forbidden attraction. But will she explore the sensuality between them or will society’s rules keep them apart?
