Even though Roxanne is on vacation she's agreed to hang out with the DIK ladies for the next three days and she's brought some hawt menz!

Favorite Reading Position
In bed, underneath a hot, sweet, funny, sexy, unforgettable, heart

Best love song
(You Want To) Make a Memory - Bon Jovi - hands down my favorite love song. Makes me cry.

Favorite Heroine
I would be any Linda Howard heroine, just to have the chance to have one of her heroes for one night.
Favorite sex song
You Shook Me All Night Long - AC/DC

If you could be a hero who would you be
I don't want to be a hero. I want to do unmentionable things to some heroes, but I don't want to be one.

What heroine is most like you?
All of mine have a piece of me in them. I've never read a heroine in fiction I thought was like me, because I am real and they are fabulous and fictional

What heroine would you like to be
Jaine Bright in MR PERFECT.

Boxers, Briefs, boxer briefs, kilt (I say we add commando)
Definitely commando, under tight jeans, with the top button undone. Mmmmm.

Favorite book set on a tropical island
Well, since I have two, I'm going with my own. TROPICAL GETAWAY, my first book, was set in St. Barts, where I spent my honeymoon. And THEN YOU HIDE, my July 08 release takes place in Nevis, where I'll take my second, much younger husband, should I ever get one.

What hero is most like your significant other
Oh, now I feel bad for the second husband comment. Of my heroes, the one most like my husband is...well, it's a heroine. The heroine of TROPICAL GETAWAY, Ava Santori, was a female version of my husband. Italian, passionate, impulsive, funny, and she/he can cook.

What hero would you like to be your significant other
Of mine? I'll take any Bullet Catcher, but really have a soft spot for Alex Romero (KILL ME TWICE) and Adrien Fletcher (FIRST YOU RUN).

If you were stuck on a desert island what 3 things would you bring
The complete dvd (with TV, etc) set of LOST, along with Sawyer who would re-enact the love scenes he had on screen AND explain all the things I don't understand about the series. Slowly. With his mouth very close to my ear. Third thing? I don't need no stinkin' third thing. I got Sawyer.

Favorite drink to bring to the DIK party
I'm a wine girl, all the way.

Now that we've gotten to know Roxanne a little better, don't forget to check back tomorrow for an in-depth interview about her writing style, her heroes, and all her upcoming books!!

Welcome to the island Roxanne!

and woohoooooooo and aaaaaaaaa
that you are bringing Sawyer! I would be happy to have an "afternoon delight" with him.

Katie Reus said...

Yay! Another author who loves Linda Howard!! (Sarai, you need to get on board, lol)

Thanks for dropping by this week Roxanne. Love your answers! :)

Playground Monitor said...

Hey Rock!

Ladies, let me just mention I own a complete set of Rocki's books, including a copy of the new Bullet Catcher book, NOW YOU DIE, and I'd be any one of the heroines in those books cause all the heroes are just scrumptious.

I'm looking forward to the rest of Rocki's blogs.


Kati said...

Hi Rocki! I'm SO glad to see you here! I totally agree about Linda Howard's heroines! Personally, I'd have been Sarah from Dying to Please because I love Doc something fierce!

Katie, thanks for bringing a totally cool chick to the island!

Roxanne St. Claire said...

Hey DIKladies! I'm so glad to be here this week. "Release week" always makes me a little edgy, so I think I'll spend plenty of time here on a nice, peaceful desert island. I'm actually on vaca in a beach house, so the island zen is plentiful!


Rowena said...

This is the best kind of interview EVER...loved it! I love Linda Howard too and I totally agree, I would never want to be a hero but I'd love to do unmentionable things TO a hero...oh to be able to do that. LOL.

Shannon said...

Welcome to our little island paradise!

Isn't Jaine Bright the best. I mean, she is smart, spunky, has great friends and gets to jump Sam whenever she wants to.

Enjoy your time at the beach house. That sounds like a great way to spend the end of August.

Tracy said...

Welcome to the island Roxanne! Glad to have you here!

Your hubby sounds wonderful! If he's passionate, funny, impulsive AND can cook? Wow!

along with Sawyer who would re-enact the love scenes he had on screen AND explain all the things I don't understand about the series. Slowly. With his mouth very close to my ear.
Yeah baby - you said it! :)

Kim said...

Welcome Roxanne!

Great answers! I agree about Linda Howard heroines. I want to be Faith so I can have Gray Roulliard. Mmmmmmm.

I read Then You Hide while on vacay in July and I have to say... I love Wade!! I want him in my hut.

Roxanne St. Claire said...

Hey everybody! Thanks for the comments. Kim, I would break into your hut and take Wade back! So glad you liked the book. And Rowena & Mary Kate, I swear I could read Linda Howard's shopping list and get emotionally charged. The woman is a genius. Thanks for stopping by, Marilyn - who got to read NOW YOU DIE this weekend!! So great to see you all here!


Judith Rochelle said...

Hi Roxanne. I agree with you about Linda Howard. her CRY NO MORE was what set em on the path to writing to begin with. I have all of your books (they have their own shelf LOL!) but I truly love the Bullet Catchers. I think I'd like a week with Alex Romero but Johny Christiano isn;t so bad, either! Can;t wait to get me copy of NOW YOU DIE.

Helen Hardt said...

What a fun interview! It was great to learn more about you,
Roxanne. I'm a huge fan!


Sarai said...

OMG OMG OMG It's Roxanne!!! Oh I heart you!

Okay fan girl thingy over and done. Anywho WELCOME!

Hey I didn't say I didn't love Linda Howard I just haven't found THE ONE yet. ;p
