Q&A with author Lani Lynn Vale of Halligan To My Axe

Lani Lynn Vale returns with her second book in The Heroes of The Dixie Wardens MC series – HALLIGAN TO MY AXE! MC’s, Firefighters, sizzling hot romance? You won’t want to miss this one!

 

1. In a Tweet (140 Characters or less) please tell us about Halligan To My Axe.
Kettle is a fireman for the Benton Fire Department. He’s responding to a fire one night when he meets a woman, Adeline is a high school chemistry teacher. She lives in the same apartment complex as Kettle, although she doesn’t know it. Kettle’s pretty sketchy about relationships. He tried once and got burned, so it’s tough for him to put himself out there again. However, he takes a leap of faith, and he doesn’t regret it one tiny bit.

2. Where did the idea for the story-line come from?

My husband’s a paramedic. I’ve become really interested in the EMS field, and find it extremely exciting to write and learn about. Kettle’s story came from a discussion I was having with my husband about firefighters.

3. What do you think readers will like/love about Adeline?
She’s real. She says what she thinks. She’s not afraid to tell Kettle when he’s being a shit, and she loves him like he needs to be loved.

4. Who are some of your book boyfriends? What draws you to them?
Dane Hollister- Dream Man by Linda Howard.
Tack- Motorcycle Man- Kristen Ashley
I’m a sucker for an a-hole. I guess I’m old fashioned like that, though. I like when a man is the man, and a woman is a woman. Although, I don’t want him to run all over her, either. There’s a line, and I feel that these two book boyfriends toe it expertly.

5. What’s next for you?
I’m currently working on the fifth book in The Heroes of The Dixie Wardens MC series.

 

Halligan To My Axe 
The Heroes of The Dixie Wardens MC #2
by Lani Lynn Vale
Publication: October 31st 2014

You’re the Halligan…

Kettle had it all.  Until he didn’t.
He lost it all in a moment.  One heart stopping, soul shattering moment, and there wasn’t a single thing he could do about it.
From that day forward, he stayed away from relationships.
Then he responded to a possible fire and there she was, rocking his world when he didn’t want it to be rocked.

To My…

Adeline was just a schoolteacher.  She lived a boring life.
Until she stole something.
And it didn’t have anything to do with the sexy firefighter’s heart.
Oh, she stole that, too, even if he didn’t want it to be stolen.

Axe…

Kettle didn’t realize just what kind of trouble Adeline was in until it nearly ripped her from his life.
There was no way anything was taking that away from him.
Not again.
One man was about to see up close and personal what fury looked like on the face of The Dixie Wardens MC’s enforcer.

Blurb:

Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardians protect humanity from unspeakable horrors–but their hearts are as fragile as any mortal’s. . .

 

For centuries, Lisette d’Alençon has been a warrior against the dark. She fights alongside her brothers and comrades. But when the dreams start coming, she can’t bear to confess them to the Immortal Guardians’ command. Dreams of a dark-haired man with soft eyes and brutal wounds, a man her heart aches for–and a man she knows has been declared a traitor.

 

Zach is an exile, a loner. He won’t defend himself against false accusations or grovel to those who should have faith in him. But he’ll damn sure defend the woman who kept him sane against a plague of super-vamps that seems to have appeared from nowhere. The Guardians will blame him, and that will make Lisette suspect, too. With life, death and eternity on the line, who can they really trust?

Book Blurb:

“Here comes Trouble!” Colton took one look at the stripper on stage and knew that was exactly what Vida was, trouble. He had no desire to succumb to the young woman tantalizing men with her provocative movements and killer body with no intention of satisfying their fantasies. Fresh out of prison, his tattoo shop and getting rid of an aggravating ex were his first priorities, not a woman who should know better than to become involved in a situation that could get her killed.

Vida will do anything to save her friend’s life, even if it includes stripping on stage and doing lap dances in the VIP room under her stage name Trouble. All the sensuous moves were just an illusion to gain the information she needed, even if it meant the men who watched thought she would keep the promises her body was making.

Forced to sift through lies and betrayals, Colton discovers a woman who is as loving as she is loyal, but won’t give him a chance. Vida, who tries to ignore the escalating passion between them, learns the hard way that some men shouldn’t be teased…

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: 

I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.

Taking after my mother, I’ve always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family put up with my zany decorations.

For now, my days are spent at work and I write during the nights and weekends. I have two children who both graduate next year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

Currently I am writing three series of books- The Last Riders that is fairly popular, The Dark Souls series, which is not, and The VIP Room, which we will soon see. My favorite book I have written is Soul Of A Woman, which I am hoping to release during the summer of 2014. It took me two years to write, during which I lost my mother, and brother. It’s a book that I truly feel captures the true depths of love a woman can hold for a man. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I am an emotional writer who wants the readers to feel the emotion of the characters they are reading. Because of this, Teased is probably the hardest thing I have written.

All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best. In the near future I hope to take a weekend break and visit Vegas that will hopefully be next summer. Right now I am typing away on Knox’s story and looking forward to the coming holidays. Did I mention I love the holidays?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming. Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice. Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works. When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in. She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.

She must save her daughter from the snares of the devil hiding behind the clergyman’s collar.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

my business photo

I wrote for my own enjoyment for as long as can remember. My first short story was written in blue colored pencil. It was called “The Mystery of the Missing Marble”. I was ten years old. I still have the original in a fire-proof metal box with all my writing. In it, there are tons of one page excerpts, kind of like a diary, but written only as the mood inspired me over the years along with short stories and a little poetry. I didn’t get the bug to write professionally until 2010. I ran across an internet article about NANOWRIMO. I was intrigued and thought “I’m going to try to write a novel.” That is where my debut novel, ACCIDENT was born. Now I can’t stop. It is like an addiction. I am married to a wonderful man and together we have six children and nine grandchildren. Although I grew up in Ohio and will forever be a Buckeye fan, we love life in southwest Florida where we can spend our leisure time on the white sandy beaches or out cruising in our little boat.
