#FlashbackFriday: The Sassy Vixen Spotlight is on Tammy Dennings Maggy #romance #paranormal #MyWANA

Round, round, get around, I get around! Yes, you guessed it! Lia is in the house and taking over the reigns of the Sassy Vixen blog. I ran over here from The House of Taboo, so please forgive me for being a bit out of breath. ;) 


Okay, I was a little distracted by the two hunks after my interview with Morticia Knight. I just can't help myself around men with tats. Whew!

Seriously, can you blame me. All that color on all those muscles...

And let's not forget that smile. The man can melt the panties off of a room full of women (and men!) with that smile...


Lia! Snap out of it woman! I thought we were here today to kick off a flashback tour of my Now and Forever series.

Yes! Sorry about that folks. Today I get to have my alter ego Tammy in the hot seat to kick off her tour. You see, in case you've all been hiding under a rock—

LIA!!!

Well, they would have to be in order to miss all the excitement around here. We've been gearing up for the new release for several months. The one we're talking about today have been available for nearly a year. You sure did take your sweet time finishing this one. Sheesh. You left us hanging for quite awhile. 

Like you, I get distracted at times by hunky men. I did get married 17 months ago you know. 

Yes I know. You finally got your own Knight in Shining Armor with your Liam. He is all that and a bag of chips, no?

I think so! Oh, and he has several tattoos!


Oh stop it! You are just rubbing it in now. Why don't you tell every one more about your last release, The Island (Now and Forever 2).

Well, this book begins a year after For the Love of Quinn. At the heart of it, The Island is a prequel. It fills in the blanks of the first book. The third book will actually take place at the same time as this one, but through the eyes of another character.

So this is where we get to find out exactly how it is Quinn and Jacob have this overwhelming attraction to each other the moment they first meet in Vegas? Was it really love at first sight?

Yes and no. You see, these two are destined to be together. Unfortunately, through each and every lifetime, they have made choices that have pulled them apart instead of bringing them together. Over and over again they search for each other and fail. Finally the Gods can't take it any longer.


Is this where the hunky Guardians come into the story?

LOL! Yes indeed. The Guardians are what most people would call Guardian Angels. Two very special ones were chosen in order to intervene with Quinn and Jacob. The Goddess Fate picked them herself. 

Let me see if I can remember all of this correctly. The Guardian Michael is actually Jacob's father and the Guardian Daniel is Quinn's younger brother? Fate thought it was a good idea to bring their dead relatives into the picture? Wouldn't that be hard on all parties involved here? I know I would be freaked out if it happened to me.


It was a bit difficult for Michael and Daniel to watch over the couple. There were times they couldn't intervene directly and it was frustrating for them. I think the person who had it the hardest was in fact Quinn. Daniel had passed away only a month before she is taken to the Island for the first time. She was still mourning for him.

I thought you were going to say it was hardest on Jacob. Michael had only been gone a year for him. It's been seven years for your dad. I know it's still hard on you...especially this time of year.

Yeah. Let's just say Thanksgiving is a pretty rough time of year for me. I know my dad would be very proud of what I've accomplished so far. He was my biggest cheerleader.  Ummmm...can we get back to the book please.

Sure thing. So is there a lot of hot sex in this one too?

Who do you think you're talking to, girlie? Of course there's a lot of hot sex in this one and the rest of the books in the series. Did you really think I would have it any other way? ;)


Just checkin', Vixen. I wouldn't want anyone to think I was being soft on you during the interview. Rumor has it during one of the flashback scenes there is a bit of bondage between Jacob and his then girlfriend, Julia Santos. 


You met Julia. How hot do you think that scene was?

She does have a way about her that gets the blood pumping! All I can say is Jacob never had a chance with that one! LOL

Maybe. And maybe not. I believe people cross each other's paths for a reason. There are lessons to be learned with each encounter, both good and bad. Once we learn what we need to, we are able to move on. So it is with both Quinn and Jacob. There are still people they have yet to cross paths with before they actually can meet again in the real world. 

So The Goddess gives them the gift of being able to be together long before they can actually meet?

Uh huh. Since they couldn't seem to connect in past lives, Fate felt it was necessary to bring them together on the Island so they could build the bond between them. Once they would meet again, the pull between them would be undeniable. 

But in order to have their happily ever after, they had to choose to be torn apart again? That's so sad!

On the surface it would seem so, but really it's not. The hard part for both of them is believing in the promise given to them by the Gods, believing they are worthy of such a gift, and overall believing in themselves once again.

Well, you know I'm hooked on this series. So when will you have the next book out? 

LOL! Let's get through this retro release tour first and then we'll talk more about The Surrender of Julia. You can't fool me, honey. I know you just want to hear more about the scenes between Julia and her Mistress, Carmen.

Okay, well you got me there! So where can we get The Island?
