I had the EXTREME pleasure of interviewing Duncan!  Hope you enjoy

The strong scent of coffee was lingering in the kitchen as I stood in the middle of it, unable to put my finger on part of the missing piece of the puzzle. Something wasn’t right. I sent the hubby off with the kids, the coffee was brewing, and the crumble cake was on the table, as was the ash tray.

A quick glance at my reflection in the refrigerator told me that I was looking spot on. Make up was tight, hair was perfection, and clothes were fitting just right … “Crap!” I still had on my darn fuzzy slippers! A mad dash to the bedroom was the quick fix that would remedy that. Until I heard the knock.

I admit it. My. Heart. Stopped. What???? Duncan is hot!

Smoothing down my long-sleeved-tee, I strutted out like I was the Queen Bee. I’m not going to lie girls, he IS the dish. I saw him through the glass of my back door, his cowboy hat slung low over the brooding eyes, full lips that beg to be kissed … just makes a woman want to pucker up and get one.

What was he wearing? Oh, he was yummy. He pulled off the cowboy hat to reveal those blue green eyes that I SWEAR can see right to your soul, five o’clock shadow that dusted his chin and cheeks. And a smile that was crooked as the day is long. Did I forget to mention the tight t shirt and Wranglers? Dear Lord have mercy, ladies… When he turned to set his hat on the table and I got a full view of his butt .. Well, you get the idea.

I didn’t even bother to ask him if he wanted coffee, the poor guy looked worn out, so I just got him some. I gathered he took it black, and let me tell you, he was full of Southern hospitality.

Tobi H – You do take it black right?

Duncan O – Just like I like my women, with a bite. Thank you.

TH – [laughs] So I take it that Raven has a lot of bite then?

DO – That’s putting it mildly. [Slight smirk]

TH – [trying not to drool] How do you like working with the paranormal community?

DO – [sips coffee and sets it aside to light cigarette] That’s a loaded question, Tobi. Not fair. Play nice. I like working with them and I don’t like working with them. Try policing vampires who are PMS’ing twenty-four seven, or trying not to hurt the feelings of a faery because you might say the wrong thing. [he shrugs slightly, and leans back in his chair, running hand over his bald head] On the other hand, it’s an ideal job. I work with several people that would give me the shirt off of their back if I needed it, at the drop of the hat. I would take a bullet for any of them and not think twice.

TH – Valentino PMS’s? I can’t see that!

DO – [HUGE eye roll] He’s the worst of the bunch.

TH – He’s just … [unable to find the words]

DO – [groans] Please, don’t… I don’t want to lose my McGriddle.
TH – [bursts out laughing] Alright, you win. Tell us something about a few members of the Murder that no one knows.

DO – [scratches at the five o’clock shadow, eyes narrowing slightly] Hmm, good question. Tamerlane has a thing for old black and white movies. We’re talking old movies, Casablanca shit. Let’s see here. [pauses] Malestrom bites his nails when he is nervous.

TH – Pretty interesting stuff. I’d never have thought that Tamerlane was into movies like that or Malestrom being the nervous type. [I have to admit, I was trying not to stare at him or drool too much] So, what exactly is going on right now in the paranormal world? Rumor has it that Raven is up against some pretty terrifying stuff.

DO – If I tell you, I’d have to kill you. [said with a straight face….. then cracked a smile, that never met his eyes] We’re searching for a killer who is murdering her guardians of the Gates of the Yggdrasil. I didn’t believe this shit was real until I witnessed it, but it’s there, and this is one sick freak. Every time he kills a guardian, she is one step closer to death. I just pray to whoever is listening that we get to him before she dies, because God help him if she does.

TO – [somehow I knew he would do more than just kill the murderer if Raven were to die] I know you’re busy, I appreciate you dropping by. I hope we can do this again. Did you have anything else you might want to add?

DO – [He tossed the cup of coffee back and put out the cigarette.] I don’t want to leave her (Raven) alone for very long. [small smirk] Not like she can’t take care of herself, so she says. Anyway, we got your back, Tobi. Just give us a call if you need anything.

I watched him as he scooped up his hat, placed it on his head and pulled it low over his eyes. He swept out the door like he was on a mission, and disappeared into the daylight. I must admit I was left with some unanswered questions, but I am saving those for Tamerlane when he arrives. Yes, you read right. But, that’s another interview for another day.
I took this pic when Duncan wasn't expecting........
I'll probably hear about this later.......

Whew that was INTENSE!!!  So, later we talked I asked him who we should giveaway an eBook for and he said

  8. I love everything about Alphas and Duncan sounds like one! Awesome Blog Hop!

  9. I love Alpha men, because I need someone as confident and dominant as me to have an equal relationship - I hate the feeling that my partner is less powerful than me and cannot make it without me.

    And: my favourite Alpha male is Gabriel from Annette Curtis Klause's Blood and Chocolate.

  10. Duncan sounds yummy. I would love to meet him, and Raven, too.
    I love Alphas who use wit as well as strength. Duncan sounds like quite a handful, but that'll do! :)

  11. Awesome interview, Tobi! Can't wait to read the book. I've read a little bit of Duncan but I can't wait to get the whole picture. :)

  12. Oh he's an alpha alright....

  19. How can you not love Duncan!!

  20. Duncan sounds fabulous! I want to get to know him better!


  21. I like the character of Duncan. thanks for giveaway/contest.

  22. Why I love Alpha Males is no real surprise! The perfect Alpha Male for me could be a Vampire, a Scottish Laird, an English Rogue/Gentleman, a Werewolf or Shape-shifter, or a Knight. He’s the rogue who thinks he can’t be reformed into a gentleman. He’s the rough and scarred Scottish laird that has a heart of gold. He’s the werewolf or shape-shifter that needs to heal an aching heart because it took him years to find his true mate. He’s the vampire who has waited decades for that special someone’s blood to sing to him and wake him up. And he’s the knight who can defeat the enemy with a quick swing of his sword, but can’t see the love in front of his face. My Alpha Male has eyes that can see into your soul and are as blue as the sea, or as black as a storm. He’s tall and brooding. His heart can enfold you into its grasp and make you fall in love when he gives it to you freely and completely. He is protective and passionate. In the end he is the one that makes your heart jump and butterflies fly in your stomach, and still kiss you until your legs melt!

  23. I liked the interview, it was a fun read :)

  38. Duncan sounds delicious!!! Quite truly lush! Thank you for sharing him with us!

    Alpha males are the best….strong, independent, fiercely protective, but on the inside they are nothing but a big ol’ teddy bear! I love the way their mouths talk filthy, but their eyes portray their sensitive sweet. They can be rough and tough in the bedroom, but still have the gentle caress of an attentive and protective lover. It's all in the heart.....alpha males are the best!

    Thanks for participating in the hop!

  39. ^^ he seems very stong willed^^


  40. I much prefer a man who is strong, but not a bossy jerk. I want to see a tender side to him as well. Edna Curry

  41. Duncan~~~ hmm, I'm sure he's fabulous, but~ not really my type based on his mannerisms for the most part.


  42. Loving the awesome blog hop!

    Alpha Males are my fav! So, dominate and fun to tease. And when they talk feelings they mean every word!
