***Max interview and a GIVEAWAY!!***

Today I have a guest on the blog!!

And it isn’t just anyone. I have to confess—I have a little bit of a crush on Max. Max is the star of Heather Long’s new release, The Love Thieves, available now on Amazon! (click here to get your copy today!)

If you haven’t heard about The Love Thieves, here is the blurb:

Set in Morocco, London and Switzerland, The Love Thieves takes Anya and Max on a powerful journey full of passion and chemistry that sparks on the page from their first dance to their last.
Maxwell Sauvage was born into a life of privilege…and boredom. As a “security consultant” to the powerful, he enjoys pitting his wits against the most intricate of security systems for business and pleasure.

Anya Swift is a woman with high-class tastes and a high-octane need for adventure. As an operative for International Art and Antiquities Recovery she stays just on the ‘right’ side of the law, while satisfying her desire for the finer things and her thirst for adventure.

When a high tech camera catches Anya taking The Fortunate Buddha from the French Ambassador’s vault, Max is eager to help the provocative thief for his own reasons, not the least of which being that he set the camera. But after one stunning night of passion, Anya disappears. Now Max must find Anya before the Ambassador’s men and claim the thief for his own, but they are running against a clock, danger and deception.

So, help me welcome Max…You can applaud if you want to.

Max, I have a few questions for you and thanks for coming. For starters, your method of wooing Anya was rather…untraditional. Tell us a little about that?

What’s untraditional about learning everything you can about a woman so you can woo her properly? My darling Anya is unconventional. I thought it prudent to act accordingly.

Okay, I gotta say, that is kinda sexy…so, how do you fall in love? Is it at first sight? Or perhaps during a rapid-fire series of questions from a dead sexy author? *bats eyelashes*

It began in an airport, sitting in the most dreadfully dull lounge you can imagine. But the setting isn’t important, the woman is…

Trust seems to be an issue for you…or you wouldn’t have made some of the…choices you made with Anya. Do you feel trust is usually an issue for you or are you perhaps inspired to trust by inquisitive authors? *hikes skirt a bit higher…*

Trust is earned over the length of an acquaintance, not the skirt.

Describe yourself to me…slowly.

Why ever for?

Hmm…love it. *fans self* So, uh, describe your ideal relationship. I know my…uh…readers want to know all about that.

Trust and passion are vital to any relationship. The ability to converse on multiple subjects and about anything other than fashion and parties. The fact that she can take a man twice her size and put him down like an animal doesn’t hurt. *amused smile* The things that she can do with her legs…

What are you most afraid of? Is that too personal of a question? *laughs nervously* If it is, you should answer anyway. *stares*

Assumptions. Assumptions lead to bad choices and alienation.

What do you like most about your life right now? Like, if you could change any one thing, what would it be?

That is a difficult question. Life is about the choices we make. Change one -- you could change everything. So if changing anything could cost me the one thing I value most then I choose Anya, bruises, bad choices and all.

Oh, well, I thought for sure your answer would be that you would fly me away to a deserted tropical island so you could serve me frothy frozen beverages…Any chance you will give up on that whole Anya thing and date a super sexy single author? *waggles eyebrows*

Not hardly. But I could introduce you to my cousin…let me give you his number…

Damn. Well, you heard it here first, folks. Sexy, rich as sin, bored and a single-devotion to me…erm, Anya. *sigh* If you want to hear more about Max and Anya, check out The Love Thieves here or to find out more about Heather Long’s sexy heroes…check out her website here.

  1. Max, you sound like a strong take charge type. My type.

    1. Max wanted you to know Julie that he appreciates the complement. He's always believed in going after what he wanted.

  2. Lucky Anya! Max, are you sure there isn't some way we could lure you away for a moment? LOL. Max sounds scrumptious. Great interview and very different.

    Loved this. What a fun way to start my day. Thank you!

    1. Thanks and thanks for reading, Karen!

    2. Karen, Max said that he couldn't be lured away from love for anything!

  3. Max is pretty sexy. I have a copy of the book and I have to say--Anya is pretty cool and fun, lucky Max.
    It was nice meeting Max.

    1. Thank you, H.C. It was reeeeally fun interviewing him!

    2. H.C.

      Max couldn't agree with you about Anya more.

  4. Hi Heather, Max and Virg!

    Great interview! THE LOVE THIEVES sounds fantastic! :)


    1. Jane,

      Virginia was terribly gracious in hosting Max today, he enjoyed chatting with her as well.

  5. I can see why you have such a crush on Max, Virg! I'm so sorry he's not willing to whisk you away, but take the cousin's number:)
    Max, Anya is a very lucky woman to have a man as devoted to her as you are.
    This book is now going to the top of my TBB list. *sigh as I look at the ever growing list*

    1. Gemma,

      Max wanted to extend his appreciation for you stopping by today. If things don't work out with Virg and Pietr, he'd be happy to pass his phone number to any and all takers. It's the least he could do for his cousin.

  6. I will take the cousin's number...since I met him in The Love Thieves, I know he is pretty darn hot, too, and his bromance with Max was kinda sexy...LOL
    Thanks for commenting all and best of luck in the contest!

  7. Ooh, very lovely interview and intro to the Love Thieves! Thanks so much--I'm new to reading Ms. Long's writing, but this sounds like an author not to miss!

    1. F.chen,

      Max applauds the addition of Ms. Long's books to your shelves, but I have to confess, he is a tad bit biased.

  8. I love character interviews, they are so much fun, plus you get more from the character even if you already read the book... which I haven't. Gimme! ;)

  11. OK I am not buying this book JUST because the heroine's name is Anya! I am so excited it has come out! Congrats Heather and Hi Virg.

    1. Anya,

      Max wanted you to know he agrees that Anya is an exquisite name.
