I have an amazing TREAT for y'all today! Debut author Montana Ash's 1st book, WARDEN is out TODAY! *woot* AND...she graciously answered a few 'Evil' Interview Questions. *gigglesnort*
BUT...before we get to those...let me tell you a little about her book.
1. It's freakin' AWESOME!
2. See #1!
Seriously...it is really really good. Check this out:
Ryker is a paladin. An ancient knight, born to protect those precious few who hold powers over the elements. He is bound by honour, courage and loyalty. But when tragedy strikes he forsakes everything he stands for, vowing never to serve again. He opens his home to other rejected and dishonoured knights … but never his heart. That is, until a sarcastic, sword-wielding, miniature Warden barges into his life, bringing chaos and mayhem to his carefully ordered world.
Will he forgive himself for past mistakes? Or will old wounds continue to scar his future?
Max is different. She has a strange affinity to nature and finds herself constantly causing disasters wherever she goes. What’s more, strange creatures stalk her every step, their relentless pursuit driving her to the brink of exhaustion. Stumbling upon a gaggle of hot ancient knights seems too good to be true but she can’t deny they have the answers she’s looking for. Too bad their Captain is a growly, insensitive jerk who insults her every time he opens his gorgeous mouth.
Should she trust her instincts and allow herself to hope for the first time in her life? Or will her fierce independence cause her to lose the one thing she has always craved? A home.
Seeeeee....doesn't it sound really good? And isn't this a cool cover???
Are y'all ready to meet Montana??? Okay, okay....without further adieu...here's Montana!
Hello Montana! Welcome to Evil Tammy’s Brazen Book Banter. It’s a pleasure to have you today. Please tell me about your book.
Hi Tammy! Thank you so much for having me! I’m very excited to talk to everyone about my very first paranormal romance book, Warden. It’s the first book in the Elemental Paladins series (hopefully!) and features a gaggle of smokin’ hot knights, born to protect and serve, as well as one very clueless charge, born to annoy the hell out of them! The leading lady, Max, is quick-witted, sharp-tongued, dirty-minded and pervy! Very, very pervy! She’s tough because she’s had to fight to survive and can’t believe her luck when she stumbles upon the ‘harem’ of good looking paladins. The sarcastic little redhead meets her match in Ryker, the reluctant leader of the ancient knights. He’s broody and insensitive … but he does have nipple rings! Did I mention Max was pervy? So she can pretty much forgive him anything when he flashes those metal bars at her from his amazingly ripped chest! Want to know more? Then go meet Max and Ryker in Warden!
What’s your next project?
I have a handful of partial ‘masterpieces’ and after the release of Warden, I now found myself motivated to complete them all! But first up is the second instalment in the Elemental Paladins series featuring Diana and Darius. Soon to follow will be a new series, cheekily name-dropped courtesy of Max in Warden. For everyone who has read (or yet to read) Warden, keep your eyes peeled for mention of Sabre, the rather violent angel assassin from Reluctant Royals!
Where do you live?
Australia! Yes, I’m an Aussie so please forgive the Aussie slang and beware of the unavoidable Aussie spelling in all my books.
What’s your favourite line from any movie?
“Fuck ‘em if they can’t take a joke.” This has been in multiple movies and books but nobody says it better than John Travolta in Broken Arrow.
What’s your favourite TV show of all time and why?
Stargate SG-1. Hands down the best TV series ever! And I’m talkin’ about the originals here, SG-1, not those other bastardised versions! I do love me some Daniel Jackson and Jack O’Neil!
What are you afraid of?
Praying mantis … and bananas. Say what? Well the praying mantis is a genuine phobia- I can’t even look at a photo of one. I once ran barefoot over broken glass just to escape one’s evil clutches! And bananas? Well, that’s more of an aversion, really. I don’t like to see them, smell them, touch them or hear them. Keep those awful yellow, potassium-filled, phallic-shaped things away from me!
Cats or dogs?
Both! I actually have one of each. In fact, would you like to meet the real Montana Ash? May I Introduce …
… and Ashby!
Yep, my fur-kids named me! The only problem now is that they want a cut of the profits- I have a feeling I’m going to be supplying ping pong balls and stuffed bunnies as payment for a long time!Well, nice to meet you all! It’s been a pleasure! And big thank you to Tammy once again for grilling me and supporting Warden. I hope everyone loves Max and Ryker as much as I do!
Thank you, Montana, for taking the time to stop by and answer that Evil Tammy's grilling questions! *lol* I'm super excited for you and I'm sure you'll be back soon with your next book!
PEEPS...I can't wait for y'all to read WARDEN! I know y'all are going to love it as much as I do!
Ryker! Finally a name to go with that body of his, Max thought as she shivered in delicious anticipation. The name certainly fit him. The guy looked like he belonged in a maximum security prison after all. He had a heavy five o’clock shadow, messy black hair almost touching his shoulders and bulging muscles displayed perfectly by his plain white tee shirt. He had a huge scar running from under his jaw all the way up the left side of his face and disappearing under his hair line. It was like someone had attempted to hack his face in half. But the imperfection by no means detracted from that fallen angel face. In fact, it made Max want to trace its jagged lines with her tongue – that was her thing for scars talking. She let her eyes roam south and, no – it couldn’t be! Was that what she thought it was? Please don’t let it be, she begged privately ... Fuck, it was! Her very own Achilles heel … nipple rings! She could just detect the outlines of the metal under the white cotton where his nipples were situated. Lord have mercy, she was a sucker for a good nipple ring. Were they hoops or were they bars? She could work with either but she was a little partial to bars.
“Are you done staring?”
Max managed to refrain from jolting at the snarled words. Shit! She had obviously been staring at the inmate too long. He was glaring at her from across the room with those too-good-to-be-true deep brown eyes. They were the colour of her favourite chocolate … dammit. He was like her own personal, life-size walking wet dream. She had to be cool.
“Not really.” She answered, deadpan. “I was planning to take a picture. I hear they last longer.”
Soooooo...now that I have y'all convinced, I'll give you the buy links because I know all of you are ready to get your copy!
Here's how y'all can reach Montana on Social Media:
I hope all of you have enjoyed meeting Montana and learning a little out her debut novel! I'm confident that y'all will become a MONTANA ASH fan like me as soon as you read WARDEN.
