Greetings and welcome to my very first interview on The Hot Seat! This is a brand new program where I get to take our favorite Heroes and Heroines and put them in the hot seat for some much desired insights and a bit of fun trivia. Results are bound to vary!
My first guest is Jax from the stand-alone, Erotic SciFi Romance: “Hers, Untamed” by Anna Adler.
AC: Thank you for taking time out of your busy, plotting-to-escape, schedule to be with us today, Jax.
(Jax gives me a bland expression.)
For those who haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Jax yet, let me give you a visual. He’s a 6’3″ alien-human hybrid with dark brown hair, pale blue reptilian eyes and patches of brown and blue scales on his impressive, muscled arms. (Fans self) Okay, down to business!
AC: Jax, can you tell us a little more about yourself? Where you’re from and how you ended up in your situation?
Jax: Where I’m from? That’s none of your business. And how I ended up in a cage, on a planet colonized by humans who think I’m a sex pet? That’s none of your business, either.
AC: Uh-huh. Well, what’s your view on relationships, then?
Jax: I don’t do relationships.
AC: Apparently, I need to refocus the questions here… Be honest, what was your first impression upon meeting Alyssa?
Jax: Well, she’s hot as hell. A pretty face and curves to die for. I wanted to get my hands on her for sure. But she bought me from a pet training center like a piece of meat, and now I’m stuck in a cage in her apartment.
AC: Would you say Alyssa has changed your previous views on relationships, or confirmed them?
Jax: You call this a relationship? Well, I’ve never been bought before, I can tell you that. I’m wearing a collar and she calls me her pet, and she thinks there’s nothing wrong with that. This messed up situation has nothing to do with any relationship I had in mind. The only good thing about it is that she’s gorgeous and she finds me sexy. I could have some fun with her if only I got rid of this damn collar and got out of the cage.
AC: I’m really sure you could. Are you a social, family guy, workaholic or a little of each?
Jax: I do what I do. ’Nuff said.
AC: (Gives Jax an exasperated look.) If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Jax: I don’t need to fucking change. Okay fine, Alyssa says I should clean up my language. And maybe my manners could use some brushing up. I’ve been alone in space for too long.
AC: You don’t say. What is your favorite and least favorite part of being a human-alien hybrid?
Jax: Favorite part? Just wait until you see what I can do with my tongue. My least favorite part? Every race I’ve encountered considers us hybrids nothing but rejects. I mean, every race outside the Silenian humans that is. Alyssa and her people love hybrids, which is cool. I like that.
AC: If Alyssa was sitting here, what would she say is your best quality, and would you agree with her?
Jax: She seems to think I’m hot because I’m half alien. I’ve got these funny pale eyes with narrow pupils and some reptilian scales on my arms…most people think I’m a mongrel because of it, but Alyssa and the other Silenians are crazy about such things. Go figure. I don’t mind being considered hot. That’s actually great.
AC: Speaking of being hot, can you describe your ideal lover?
Jax: Alyssa. Naked.
AC: (Laughs.) That’s very succinct, Jax, thank you. If the way to a man’s heart really is through his stomach, what dish would lure…er…make you come back for more?
Jax: Not Alyssa’s cooking, that’s for sure. I bet that woman never cooked in her life, so I don’t get why she insists on cooking for me. Healthy food, my ass. If I had any say in this, she would just order me a pizza.
AC: What kind of music do you listen to?
Jax: Anything, as long as it’s loud.
AC: Fans are dying to know: Boxers, briefs or commando?
Jax: Boxers, except that Alyssa’s so eager to get me out of them I don’t know why I bother.
AC: What’s the #1 item on your Bucket List?
Jax: Number one item? Escape Silenia. Number two? I want a woman. Someone who’s all mine and stays mine. I never had that before. Alyssa would do.
AC: If you could travel anywhere in the universe, where would it be?
Jax: I can travel anywhere in the universe. That is, I was able to go anywhere I fucking wanted before Silenian pet hunters caught me and stuck me in a cage.
AC: That didn’t answer the question, Jax, but okay, moving on. Outside of Alyssa, who are the most important people in your life?
Jax: I have a few friends…and friends of friends. But most of the time, I’m on my own.
AC: What is your greatest regret?
Jax: I don’t do regrets.
AC: Name one of your guilty pleasures, then.
Jax: Real meat. None of that soy meat stuff that’s the standard source of protein these days. Even though it’s pretty decent if you know how to cook it. I like real meat, bloody. And cold beer.
AC: What is the one thing in this world you would never do?
Jax: I would never actually hurt Alyssa.
AC: (Refrains from getting sappy.) Are you keeping a secret? You can share it with us, we won’t tell.
Jax: I ain’t answering that. Next question.
AC: Fine, but this is the big one: What would you do to win Alyssa’s heart?
Jax: Hell, there’s a lot I would do for her, if only she’d let me out of the cage. She’s my dream woman, but she needs to learn that keeping people as pets against their will is not right. I don’t care what the Silenian law says.
Well, there you have it readers, straight from the man, himself (despite his reluctance). If you haven’t read Jax and Alyssa’s sizzling SciFi yet – what are you waiting for? It’s PermaFree! Besides, you really should see what the man can do with his tongue…
Alyssa Cressfield always wanted a pet—a big, sexy man who would look impressive on a leash. Now, she is finally ready to realize her dream. She visits a pet training center, intending to buy a trained pet. Instead she finds Jax, a fierce human-alien hybrid freshly caught from space, still untamed and unbroken. Alyssa has never encountered an untamed pet before. She can’t resist temptation; she must have him.
On Silenia, it is customary for humans to keep other intelligent species as pets and sex toys. Alyssa is kind at heart, but she is a product of her society and therefore sees nothing wrong with keeping a man in a cage against his will. Jax, on the other hand, is a space pirate who now finds himself wearing a collar and being treated like property. He has no intention of turning tame and obedient, and a battle of wills ensues. Jax and Alyssa quickly discover their undeniable chemistry, but is it enough to reconcile them? What happens when the pet breaks out of his cage?
