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!
Without further ado, I am most pleased to introduce the lovely and talented (and very brave!) Anise Rae!
Sundae with the Nut Anise Rae
1.Favorite knickers: cotton, lace, silk or errr…leather?
Gotta go with cotton on this one, but I do like a little lace on the side. Even practical girls like to feel pretty. But may I digress for a moment? I have a little story to tell you about leather, though not as it pertains to knickers. Here goes: A few weeks ago, I was in dire need of a dress. I went shopping and could not find anything that suited. Don’t you hate that feeling? I walked into a store, and there was a black leather skirt. If I hadn’t been so desperate, I never would have tried it on. Never. Ever. The moment I pulled that sleek black column over my hips, I was sexiness personified. There’s a sense of power that comes with that feeling.
Since that moment, I’ve become a leather skirt advocate. Every woman needs one.
Needless to say, that skirt came home with me. (Vegans and vegetarians, rejoice! There’s an option for you too. Vegan leather has the same effect.) Now I’m on a mission to find leather pants.
2.Who is your fantasy male or female? Or both?
Can I pick two? I’m feeling rather rebellious today. Sundays do that to me.
It’s a bit of a toss up between Chris Hemsworth and Benedict Cumberbatch. The first pick really needs no explanation. All you have to do is look at him as he stands there in all his gorgeous perfection, but then…he speaks, and his voice is as swoon-worthy as the rest of him. Low and sexy. I think I could watch Thor with my eyes closed and it would still be just as good. Well, almost.
As for Ben, it’s no secret that I’m a huge Sherlock fan. I’m sure there’s some sort of crime around here that needs his attention. I hope he shows up in the hat, though if he wants to wear his Buckingham Palace outfit, that’s would be absolutely dandy with me.
|What a great bloody name! Benedict Cumberpatch.|
3.What language, when heard spoken, makes you frisky? (like Jamie Lee Curtis in A Fish called Wanda)
This is an easy one. Any language that Chris or Benedict speak.
4.Do you believe in love at first sight?
Though it’s never happened to me, yes, I wholeheartedly believe in love at first sight. Here’s why. I once fell into friendship at first sight. It happened at a book club. (Where else?) I was the newbie. She was late. The connection was instant and eight years later it still remains. If she’d been a man, I would have asked her to marry me in the parking lot as we walked out of Barnes and Noble. If it can happen between two friends, why couldn’t it happen between two lovers?
5.If you could play a board game during sex, what would it be?
I feel another rebellion coming on…instead of a board game, can I read a book out loud? Is that too geeky? Bookish? Maybe. But I think it would be completely sexy to read to a guy while he…. So, anyway, you probably want to know what book I would choose. Bertrice Small’s Love Lost Found. It’s an oldie but a goody. And HOT. Holy cow, that woman was far ahead of her time. I first read it many years ago and have re-read it so much certain pages are falling out.
6.Any special “toys” you’d like to give mention to for their outstanding achievements?
Yes! Razor scooters and Xbox 360s. They distract my children most excellently so I can write. Oh, wait. Is that not what you meant?
7.I *heart* Peter Cetera. What song immediately swoops you back to your “first days” of falling in love?
Bryan Adams’ Everything I Do. Sing it with me now… “Everything I dooo, I doooo it for youuuuuu.” It’s so romantic I think I feel a slow dance coming on. (And, of course, you all remember that it was part of the soundtrack for Robin Hood with Kevin Costner, right? Sigh.)
8.Most romantic or sexiest destination out there.
If you’re with the right person, pretty much anywhere.
And last but now least.
9.Favorite ice cream flavor.
Peanut butter ‘n chocolate from Baskin Robbins. YUM! Baskin Robbins is the perfect place to go for dessert. If your companion isn’t in the mood for ice cream, he can have a doughnut. Or least he can around here he can, since Baskin Robbins and Dunkin’ Donuts go together like…peanut butter ‘n chocolate. YUM!

Have you missed the Nuts? It seems like it’s been AGES since I’ve had a guest on for a good blather. And no better way to get us going again than the lovely Anise Rae. It’s truly a pleasure. So what do we have here?
Of course, you can have more than one fantasy male! I have many depending on my mood, or the book I’m reading. Because yes, a good romance will have you falling in love with the hero. And you know what? You’re the first Nut to mention Bryan Adams, but sweet divine, how did we miss him? I love, love this song. I most likely spilled some tears over a crush over it even. The song and the movie combined – wowsers – some of the most intense love you’ll feel in a movie (next to Braveheart- my own personal opine). Oh, where is my Robin Hood and William Wallace?
And your idea for reading out loud during sex. OMG woman, you should patent that shit. Seriously. Take a great sex scene from a book and act it out yourselves, or like you said, just read it to each other until you can’t keep your hands off each other.
And YES, YES, YES, children’s toys do count. Because even though everyone goes on about children and their screen time, if I get a wee break, just a small one, then I’m a better mother because of it. AMEN.

Do give your time to the lovely Miss Anise. Syphon’s Song is her debut, and such an impressive start to the Mayflower Mages series. I have a feeling I could immerse myself in her books and barely come up to breathe.
