Character Interview with Sierra Dean + Giveaway

So I am very excited and happy that the latest instalment, Grave Secret, Book #5 in the series was released yesterday! Yay!! :-D So please welcome Sierra Dean, the author behind this fantastic series as she brings you Holden and Desmond, two of the many heroes of the series, answering some of YOUR questions! (also, don't forget to enter the giveaway before leaving! :-) 

Character Interview(s) – Holden and Desmond Answer Fan Questions

As an author I tend to enjoy hearing from fans about which of the men in my series they love the most. Team Desmond and Team Holden are definitely the most vocal fan bases from the Secret McQueen series, so I figured I’d turn to the fans and see what they wanted to know.

Kaylyn from Facebook asks Desmond: “were you mad at Lucas for leaving Secret at the altar or were you secretly glad?”

Desmond: Glad? I definitely wasn’t glad. I was mad as hell he would do that to her, especially on such an important day. Lucas has always done what he thought was right, but in this instance he couldn’t have done a more bone-headed selfish thing. That said, it was sort of a relief for Secret to finally realize the depths his selfishness could reach. I could have done without getting shot.

As a follow up, Jacqueline asks Desmond “do you think Lucas left Secret because he thought the pack wouldn’t accept her?”

Desmond: No. He stood her up because of pack business, but he knew they’d accept her regardless because she was his mate. He also put more stock in the werewolf marriage ceremony, and that had already been completed.

Gidget asks Holden “Describe your dream girl.”

Holden: Short. Blonde. Annoying.

Nicci asks Holden “What was your favorite decade?”

Holden: I’ve been around for two hundred years, so there have been some interesting ones. The Industrial Revolution in England was fascinating, but not the most cheerful time to be around. I moved to the US early on in my life, and I have to say the 20s was an amazing time. Prohibition made everyone excited for new experiences and it was just coming to an end then. People just wanted to drink in life, and I was there to drink it through them. Flapper girls… man.

Kathleen asks “What are your intentions with Secret?” so I’ll field this to both men.

Desmond: I want to spend the rest of my life with her. As long as I can keep her alive long enough for that to be a decent length of time.

Holden: snorts Yeah, you keep her alive. Sure.

Desmond: Just answer the question. I’m curious, too.

Holden: I want her to be happy. And I think I can give her that.

Desmond: Sure. Happiness, that’s what you want for her.

Cowanda asks Holden “How long have you been in love with Secret?”

Holden: I’ve known her since she was a bratty sixteen year old, so I can’t say I’ve loved her from first sight. It took a few years, but when I got to see her turn into the fierce, strong, independent woman she became. When she matured, that’s when I fell in love with her.

Candi asks Holden “Who’s your favorite clothing designer?”

Holden: Currently? Tom Ford. Hugo Boss has always been a genius, but there was that whole… SS uniform thing. Still, they make amazing suits. But Tom Ford makes amazing clothes across the board.

Grave Secret by Sierra Dean

Book #5 in the Secret McQueen series

Sometimes a secret goes to the grave. Sometimes Secret puts you there.

It’s been a hell of a year for Secret McQueen, and the last thing in the world she wants is to get caught up in werewolf drama. But when her former fiancé Lucas Rain shows up asking for her help, she knows there’s no easy way out.

After making it known she wants nothing to do with him, Secret agrees to help find Lucas’s wayward sister Kellen. After all, how much trouble could one socialite get into in the city that never sleeps?

Unless that socialite has been spirited away by fairies.

Trying to track down a missing girl in an alternate reality is just the start of Secret’s problems, though. Someone appears to be killing teenagers, and the MO looks eerily similar to something for which the half-fairy oracle, Calliope, might be responsible. Throw in a rogue wolf pack claiming allegiance to Secret’s mother, Mercy, and she’ll have miles to go before she rests.

Warning: This book contains a promise fulfilled, sex that’s out of this world, and more heartache than one hybrid assassin can handle.

Sierra Dean is a reformed historian. She was born and raised in the Canadian prairies and is allowed annual exit visas in order to continue her quest of steadily conquering the world one city at a time. Making the best of the cold Canadian winters, Sierra indulges in her less global interests: drinking too much tea and writing urban fantasy.

Ever since she was a young girl she has loved the idea of the supernatural coexisting with the mundane. As an adult, however, the idea evolved from the notion of fairies in flower beds, to imagining that the rugged-looking guy at the garage might secretly be a werewolf. She has used her overactive imagination to create her own version of the world, where vampire, werewolves, fairies, gods and monsters all walk among us, and she’ll continue to travel as much as possible until she finds it for real.

She’s also a book lover (of course!), obsessive collector of OPI nailpolish and the owner of way too many pairs of shoes.
