by Wendy Higgins
Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things.
Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.
When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?
OK so I hope everyone knows, that I'm just about to bust open, I am so filled with excitement I can't contain myself!!! I am so lucky to have the one and only Kaidan Rowe here for the infamous Tater interview. And what better person to have than one just as naughty as myself!!! So without making you wait any longer (and lets face it, I know you all just skipped over all this and went right to the naked question) here we go...
Hey sweetness, how are you doing today??
Much better now that you’re here, Tara.
Oh baby! I'm so ready to grill you! So let’s get started. Please butter yourself up and hop on my grill.
*Raises eyebrows and grins*
And by grill, I mean my lap, the only proper place for my guest to sit while I heat the room up!
First question sugar: If you could sit in with any band or drummer for a jam session, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Travis Barker. I’m not ashamed to say I have a man-crush.
I'll bet its all the tattoos, but the man does have mad skills!
Why the drums? I figured as a lust magnet that you would have more success as a lead singer, not many ladies really love the drummers?
Ha, luv, that’s where you’re wrong. The drummers are the mysterious ones.
Oh don't I know it. Although for me, I like ALL members of the band, The lead singer knows how to melt a girl with just words, the guitarist and bassist have mad skills with their fingers and lets just say I'm sure the drummers know how to bang!
What drumming riff tickles your fancy?
Don’t laugh, but I’m incredibly fond of the riff in Wild Thing. It’s sexy in the most basic way. I warm up to it before every gig and practice.
And here I was hoping you were gonna say Hot for Teacher, so I could be all naughty teacher in the 80's!
Your wildest dream.
Oh don't I flippin know it!
Tell me something about you that we don’t learn from the books?
I have quite a large...shoe size. Big feet, and all. Hm, what else? Okay, my father originally wanted me to take the boy band route (to have more access to innocents). Can you see it? Thankfully I won that battle, but every time I hear One Direction I have to chuckle.
As much as I don't like to admit I was an NSync fan, I have to say good for you for resisting that rout!
Describe the perfect day. Who would you be with and what would you do?
One particular girl comes to mind. And one particular activity. *clears throat* Next question please.
If you could have one wish, no questions, what would it be and why?
For my father and the other Dukes and whispering demons to be gone. Why? Because they’re evil bastards, even by my low standards.
What is something that baffles you?
Kitchen appliances. I’m convinced you need particular magical abilities to work them.
Yea but have you ever used a Keurig?? Seriously, I can't live without one!
Red vines or Twizlers? Red Vines (Really good anwser, cuz this one is a right or wrong one!)
Sweet or salty? Salty
Coke or Pepsi? Neither. No soda.
City, Beach or Mountains? Beach
Burger or steak? Both
Day or night? Night
Brown, Green or Blue eyes? Brown (a recent preference)
Blonde, Brunette or Red Head? Yes, please
Favorite Place? Between the sheets. (What? We all have to sleep.) (I agree, nothing like the feeling of rubbing your freshly shave legs between some cool clean sheets! It's heaven!)
Cat or Dog? Dogs. Cats are evil. Like miniature Dukes with tails.
Coffee or Tea? Coffee
Snow or rain? Rain
Soda or Juice? Juice
Twitter or Facebook? Twitter
Ghost or Zombies? Zombies. I’m over spirits of any type.
You know Kai, you and me could be wonderful friends!!!
And lastly, my favorite way to finish my interviews, can I get a kiss from ya??
Yes. The answer is always yes. Come here, luv...
*Runs away with Kai to play 7 mins in heaven* And as always you taste like key lime pie, my favorite
Thank you Kaidan, its always a real pleasure to have you here.
