This time it's the girl's turn! Last month Jaycee DeLorenzo and Victoria Smith hosted a Oh My Hero! Blog hop where we got to introduce our novel's hero's and interview them, and now we get to do the same for the heroine. I'm choosing a heroine from a different novel than the one my hero was from, because she's a fun gal =)
We were supposed to include a picture, but I always prefer to do my own character drawings rather than use another picture, and this time my artistic muse wasn't able to produce a picture of my heroine in time, but once I do I'll add her.
Now, without further ado I'd like to introduce Selene Vanream, who is a necromancer who helps ghosts settle their affairs so they can head to the afterlife, or else they turn into monsters. I decided to let her answer all of the questions Jaycee and Victoria posed.
1. How would you describe your hero?
A royal pain in my ass! At least in the beginning. Micah was hostile towards me for no reason, but it's not like I cared too much about what crawled up his butt. Though alright, he's gorgeous, but he's plowed through half the women in the office, including me, one drunken night. He actually turned hateful after that night, and I always figured it was because he thought I'd be so enamored with him afterwards I'd throw myself at him and beg to be his girlfriend. And that definitely didn't happen. But recently things have been changing, Micah and I had a heart to heart about a lot of things, including the true reason for his hostility, and I have to say waking up in a hospital room and seeing him there changed a lot for me...
2. What's your biggest date horror story?
HA, only one? Well suffice to say I get around a lot, oh, that really makes me sound like a big tramp doesn't it? Okay, I get around...periodically, how's that? One time a guy took me out and his idea of a date was pizza then drinking at a seedy bar in the West Village; which I was okay with don't get me wrong, any night that can combine pizza and liquor for me is a good night. But when prince charming got so hammered he ended up throwing up on me but still wanted to get into my pants, I'd have to say that date belongs in the sucky pile.
3. What turns you off from a guy the most?
Throwing up on me is a pretty big turn off, but since I'm an aggressive sorta girl I have to say someone who can't match me on that isn't someone whose gonna get the goods if you know what I mean.
4. What's the best date you ever had?
I'll get back to you on that one, see I'm only now realizing my hitting and quitting ways aren't quite working for me any more...Micah seems to be interested in me for more than a good time between the sheets, but I'm terrified of messing this up. Because let's face it, making a mess of things is sorta my MO.
5. Kiss on the first date?
Sure, we can start with a kiss...
6. What gets a guy a second date?
Again, I'll get back to you on this.
7. Boxers or briefs on your guy?
Boxers for sure, you can't get me hot and bothered if you're coming at me in tightie whities.
8. What is one thing you believe can tell a lot about a person?
What they will do for you when it really matters. If you end up in the hospital, will they drop everyone and come even if it's not life threatening? Or will they leave you an expensive necklace on your desk at work then expect you to come and thank them for it? Because I've experienced both, and the behavior of the person who did the latter taught me a lesson almost too late.
9. What attracts you to a guy the most?
Scenario A from above. And nice biceps. And abs. And Micah's gray eyes...
Now her approach in her dating life isn't all there is to Selene, but since these questions were geared towards men and dates, I'm going to choose Maneater by Nelly Furtado as a song to describe her.
