Sundae With Nuts – the cast from Coming to Reason

February 9th, 2014

Welcome to another saucy episode of SUNDAE WITH NUTS where I have asked my fellow authors to join me for the day for a bit of fun and a laugh. We are romance writers after all!

This week we have a special edition. I’m hosting the main cast of characters from Liza O’Connor’s COMING TO REASON.

Sundae With the Nuts from Coming to Reason

Today, I  invited Carrie and Trent over to answer questions, only Trent called off at the last minute, so Carrie has brought along her new boss, Dan Marshall. So how long have you two been an item?

Carrie: What? No! Dan’s just my boss…and friend. He and his daughter Destiny are great friends.

Okay, let’s start.

1.Favorite knickers: cotton, lace, silk or errr…leather?.Carrie: Trent threw out all my cotton panties and replaced them with outrageously expensivie silk and lace. But since your asking for MY favorite, I’m saying cotton. And Dan?Dan: *Laughs* Cotton for me as well.

2.Who is your fantasy male or female? Or both?Carrie: Oh Russel Crowe for me. And Dan?

Dan: For me, I suppose a younger version of Olivia Wilde
CD: And would you like her to be 4’6″ as well? Dan *shrugs*  I like petite women.

CD: Is it just me, or do these two resemble Carrie and Dan?

3.What language, when heard spoken, makes you frisky? Carrie: Any language as long as it’s words of love, sincerely said.Dan: I totally agree with Carrie. 

4.What vehicle, abode, beach, construction site or other locale did you lose your virginity. Carrie: In my dorm room at college. Dan: In the back of my parent’s limo. We had gone to a concert and were feeling high and frisky. Neither of us had protection, but we didn’t care. My first time and I got her pregnant. Still…I can’t regret it. I’ve got the most fabulous daughter imaginable from that limo ride. Carrie: Destiny is wonderful.

5.Do you believe in love at first sight? Carrie: No. I think love is something you have to work really hard to achieve. Dan: I have to disagree with Carrie on this one. If you have to constantly struggle to make the relationship work, then perhaps it’s not meant to be. And while I do believe in love at first sight-it’s happened to me. That doesn’t mean things will work out. 

6.If you could play a board game during sex, what would it be?Carrie: I’m stumped on that one. I’ve never played a board game. Dan? Dan: Well, Destiny and I played a ton of board games, but they mostly had little blue ponies trotting over the board. I’ve no idea how to mix sex with little blue ponies, sorry.

7.Any special “toys” you’d like to give mention to for their outstanding achievements? Carrie: *blushes and whispers* May we skip this since Dan is my boss. He doesn’t need to know about my toys. 

8.I *heart* Peter Cetera. What song immediately swoops you back to your “first days” of falling in love?Carrie: My first love…or what I thought was love, didn’t come with music. I was his study mate. All we did is study, except when he needed…you know…so he could concentrate on studying. Dan: We’d just come from an Ozzie Osbourne concert and Shot from the Dark was running my head while me and Jackie had sex for the first time. While my feelings changed later, at that moment I thought her the most beautiful woman in the world and couldn’t believe she was going to be my first.

9.Most romantic or sexiest destination out there. Dan and Carrie answer in unison: New Zealand. 

10.Who was your first crush or kiss? Carrie: My first kiss was with my study partner at college. One minute, I was talking about derivatives and then next, he’s sticking his tongue down my throat. Scared me half to death. Dan: Mine would be Jackie. You’re probably wondering why I hadn’t kissed a girl before 17. I attended a private boys school that went year around. Some of the guys would sneak out at night and experience the real world, but if you got caught, you’d be expelled. So I remained a choir boy until I graduated and got accepted into Harvard. 

11.And Liza, this one is for you: If you become a best-selling author and sell your movie rights, what will be the first thing you do when you hear? Other than contact Cd Brennan and offer to share with her, of course.. Liza: I will gather all my characters from all the 118 books I’ve written and thank them. (That’s over a thousand characters). Without them, I would have empty pages. 

12. Favorite ice cream flavor. Liza: I can’t eat ice cream, so let me turn this back to Dan and Carrie. Carrie: I like French vanilla with dark chocolate embedded inside. Dan: Me too. We’ll stop and get some once we leave here.

CD: Well, this interview certainly was a lot different than the interview I had with Carrie & Trent. These two seem to have a lot in common. Shame she didn’t meet him first… On second thought, I love to laugh at Trent. Dan: So did I until I met Carrie. Now I’m very worried about her. 
CD: I thought you two had left. Dan: I sent Carrie out. But I thought you should know. Matters are about to blow up between her and Trent. 

CD: Is that wishful thinking? Dan: No. Trent’s been keeping some huge secrets and Gossep Magazine is coming out with a tell all article. It’s going to break Carrie’s heart and I fear it might destroy her. 

CD: Will you be there to help her recover. Dan: As her friend, yes. But I’ve a firm rule against dating women on the rebound. And honestly, I don’t know if Carrie will ever recover from this blow. 

CD: I hope you’re wrong, but we’ll just have to read the book and find out.
