Excerpt

 

Now was my time to truly explore Noel,
the epitome of muscle-bound perfection. He sat, eyes closed and relaxed, right
next to me in the hot tub. Why he had to wear his swimsuit was beyond me, but
at least he was here. I examined him once again, his bubbly pecs hanging just
above the surface of the water. The frothy foam prevented seeing his toned abs
from up on top, but If I really wanted to, I could try and touch them, and it
was worth it to try. “Mind if I touch?” I asked, pointing towards his chest.
“I guess. I am feeling a little tense
there right now.” Score! With no delay, I placed the palm of my left hand on
his right pec muscle, turning my body so it faced his. With my knees planted on
the fiberglass flooring, I let go of him with my palm and pressed hard, but
gradually on his chest with my knuckles. I could see his facial expressions as
I made circles with my hands to relieve the tension. His teeth clenched
together, but I wasn’t sure if he was in any pain. I looked down into the
water, and still couldn’t see anything down there. I did about twenty circles
on his chest before patting each pec a couple of times and moving on down to
his stomach.
As I placed my hand on his toned, rigid
abs, he pushed me away, almost making me lose balance. “You suck at this,” he
said. “Turn around and bend over.”
I turned myself around and felt a chill
down my spine, thinking it would chill the soothing waters.  Was he going to fuck me? I hoped so, but his
stoic expression told me that wasn’t going to happen. After all, he was wearing
a swimsuit. I tried taking a deep breath without inhaling the steam coming from
the tub, but a little bit of it got in. I wanted to sneeze, and just as it was
about to come out, I felt an iron grip on my right shoulder. It sucked out all
the sneeze. I felt another iron grip clasping on my other shoulder as I looked
towards my right. I guess Noel decided to give me a massage.
He started with just my right side, his
hands beating into my shoulder with more pressure than I was giving him. It was
agonizing to say the least. Tears began to form up in my eyes from the
excruciating pain he gave me. I couldn’t say stop, because I wanted him to
worship my body. Even though only around five minutes had passed, it seemed
like an eternity before he stopped. It was only for a moment, but the pain continued
on my left side, this time with twice the magnitude.
He gave me a beatdown of a lifetime,
pounding my shoulders and back like I was his drum. The painful massage ended
as he gently patted my neck afterwards. “Okay, Jason. Turn around again and sit
down.”
I turned myself and sat in the seat I
was originally facing. Noel towered over me; his abs right in front of my face
and sprinkled with drops of spa water grouped up on each muscle. “Now I see why
you became a model,” I said.

20 Questions with Faith Gibson

20 Questions with Faith Gibson

20 Questions with Faith Gibson

  • First let me say hello beautiful.  Thank you for taking time out of your day to answer some questions. Also, let me shout out to the world how much I appreciate you and your support. You’re super amazing Faith! *muah*

Now….to the nitty gritty….

  • What was your inspiration for TDWD? I’d say it seems far from anything you’ve ever written, but in all honesty, I see a little of every series in this book. Probably why I love it so.

                     TDWTD has been 3 years in the making.

Shocked GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

It started off as a completely different story, one I have kept pieces of to continue at a later time. This one came about in a couple of ways. One day I was listening to whatever my husband was watching on TV. The voice of a certain actor carried me back to a movie I’d seen in the 80’s and part of the premise carried over to a scene in this book, thus morphing it into a romance. When I began writing Tap Dancing, it was not going to have such a happy ending. Also, when I saw the photo of Connor Smith, the man on the cover, Cass’s character came alive inside my head. I love writing suspense, and I wanted to write something gritty.

Reaction GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

 

  • Who would you cast for the roles of the major characters? Uh… This is why I could never be a casting agent. Seriously, no one other than Connor Smith, the model, would do Cass justice in my eyes even though he’s a little younger in real life. The women are curvy and almost 40, so no one comes to mind. Ugggg, next question!

 

  • How many F-bombs were in the book total? 😀 in one fashion or another, 337. Fuck, that’s a lot.

Wow GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

 

  • There are so many twists and turns, especially towards the end. How did you keep up with everything while writing? I keep a spreadsheet for all my books. This one started off as an out-of-order whodunit mystery, so it was crucial for me to write down what was happening when.

 

  • TDWD is a standalone within a series. Do you have the series plotted out? Know how many books are going to be in it? I did not plan on there being more than one book when I started this one, but once I met Jared, I knew I had to tell his story. Therefore, there were going to be 2 books. Then I met Buddha. How can Buddha not get a story, too? See where this is going? I will write as many books as characters call to me, but in the near future, I only see 3 total.

 

  • Who’s your biggest writing influence? (I’ll allow you to name more than one. I’m gracious that way) 😉 This is a hard one. I am not a big reader of the classics like some authors are. I have read Stephen King and love his crazy mind. With regards to paranormal, Sherrilyn Kenyon and Karen Marie Moning are my faves. They both tell stories their own way and toss the rules out the window.

 

  • Out of all the books that are currently WIPs; which one are you most excited to get out to us readers? Urijah, book 10 in the Stone Society. I have teased the readers (and am still doing so in Julian, book 9) long enough. It is time for these two hot alpha Gargoyles to get their story told.

My reaction to having to wait PLUS being teased…….Psh…..

Angry GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

 

  • Not TDWD related but……who is your favorite Gargoyle from the Stone Society Series? Frey. From day one when I started the series, Geoffrey Hartley “Frey”, the biggest of the Goyles, stole my heart.

 

  • Why gargoyles and not werewolves or vampires? If you were to visit my home, you would see why. I collect Gargoyles. When my friend convinced me to write paranormal, I wanted something different. Vampires of all shapes and sizes, glittery and otherwise, were big. I wanted a shifter that stood out from the others. I was sitting in my driveway on the phone with her, staring at “Gregor and Phenix”, my two Gargoyle statues, and it dawned on me then that’s what I should write about.

  • If you could snuggle yourself in between any two characters of yours who would it be and why? Just 2? Jeeze. Frey and Cass. Both men are well over six foot and they know how to take care of a woman. Then again, Tessa’s pretty hot…

 

  • If you could snuggle yourself in between any two characters out there; who would it be and why? Same answer. There are a gazillion excellent characters written, but I love mine. I am invested in them, and they are part of me.

 

  • As a reader who do you fangirl over the most? (Once again, because I’m gracious, I’ll allow you to answer with more than one person) The ones I have met – Kindle Alexander, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Andria Large, Mikey Lee, Kendall Grey, Golden Czermack, Kathy Coopmans, Charity Parkerson, Nicole Edwards (in no particular order). The ones I have yet to meet – Kristen Ashley, Karen Marie Moning, Darryl Banner, Seth King, and countless other indie authors. Most indie authors are my heroes.

 

  • Are you a cake or pie sort of person? *gives you a side eye because this is truly an important question* Yes.

Yes GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

 

  • Favorite fruit? Hmmm, I love fresh peaches and canned pineapple. Bananas on chocolate ice cream. Strawberries too. Not on ice cream. Just the berries.

 

  • Favorite Muppet? Animal. I always wanted to be a drummer.

 

  • Tea or coffee? Hot coffee and Iced tea. Not the other way around.

 

  • Do you prefer your lemon to your lime or your lime to your lemon? Put the lime in the coconut and drink it all down. If I had to choose only one, it would be lime. I like to fruit my beer, and I drink a lot of beer. Lemon is good on chicken and fish. So lime. Definitely.

 

  • What are Uri and Banyan up to? *gives you doe eyes* about 6’4” and 230 lbs. They’re some mighty fine Gargoyles. I love your eyes BTW

Flattery gets you nowhere!!!!
