I was able to interview Susannah Scott. :-)
The following is what she shared with me:
Thank you so much for having my on your site today to celebrate the release of my Paranormal Romance, Luck of the Dragon! I am excited to have you here. :-)
1. Out of all the books you've written, if you could live in one of them which would it be and why?
My first book was a fantasy romance with magicians and castles and such. That would be awesome for a while. Then, I might want to switch to the opulence, and running water, of the Crown Jewel Las Vegas Casino.
2. In what scenario do you do your best work?
Steady progress. Sprinting makes me obsessive. I also like writing on my walking treadmill desk, or my couch. Two extremes, but they work for me.
3. Paper or plastic?
Plastic, but I endlessly recycle those suckers into lunch bags, bathroom trash liners, ect. LOL! I do too. Way to help the environment. :-) Yay us!!!
4. What food can't you live without?
Eggs. I have blood sugar issues and I eat eggs every single morning. It is so boring, but it sets me up for a healthy day.
5. Inside or outside? Outside, on the river.
6. What is your favorite sport?
I am a crossfit chick. So for myself it is what every my local gym (box) has programmed. For me, I really enjoy watching the summer Olympics every four years. All the sports, one right after another!
7. What is your favorite or least favorite veggie and fruit?
I can’t think of a fruit I don’t like! I hate lima beans, black-eyed peas, and barbeque sauce. I am not crazy about pickles and raw onions either.
8. What is your favorite animal? A dog, for sure.
9. What is your biggest pet peeve? Hypocrisy.
10. Which books have been on your tbr shelf the longest?
I have an Elizabeth Hoyt novel on my nightstand, but I haven’t cracked it open yet because I have been covered up with edits. I use books as a reward for meeting my writing goals. I tend to read outside my writing genre. Rachel Gibson, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Sherry Thomas and Lisa Kleypas are some of my current favorites.
11. What are you working on and when can we expect it to be out?
Stop Dragon My Heart Around will be out this spring. It is Leo and Tee’s story. A fun, friends to lovers tale with lots a sexy bantering. Tee is part of the Las Vegas Paiute tribe so there is a cool theme of “belonging” that runs through the story too. What it means to belong to the dragons, to a tribe, to each other?
12. Can you give us a short excerpt from Luck of the Dragon with the set-up?
Alec and Lucy have some really great arguments. This one in Alec’s office is one of my favorites:
Alec opened the door to face 130 pounds of fury.
“I am a respected professional and you are manhandling me and treating me like a criminal!” Luciana yelled at him.
Alec handed her the drink and sat in a deep-seated leather chair. The chair sighed with ease when he leaned back. He crossed his ankle at his knee and took a sip. “Luciana—”
“Oh, please, all my captors call me Lucy.” She glared at him. “You sound like a priest hearing confession when you call me Luciana.”
“Well, we can’t have that.” Alec chuckled and sipped his own drink, the taste of mellow corn mash and oak barrels tingling over his tongue. Alcohol did not affect dragons in the way it affected the feeble humans. He drank the bourbon purely because he liked the taste.
“Does this have something in it?” Luciana held the drink to the light.
“I wouldn’t harm you.” Alec took a second sip of his drink, and it fired down his throat to his belly in a pleasing trail.
Lucy set her drink on his desk, untouched. “I’m not the trusting sort.”
Alec gave her what he hoped was a charming look. “You can trust me. I can help you.”
“You’ve got to be kidding,” Lucy said in a voice used to stopping cabs.
“Fine, don’t trust me, but I need you to start your appraisal tomorrow,” Alec said in a voice used to calling stretch limos.
Lucy’s face flushed. Her collarbones rose and fell under her pale skin in elegant lines.
He wanted to kiss her, to see if the zing of electricity was a fluke, or if the fates had gone mad and paired him with a human mate.
She might bite him.
He might like it.
This sounds awesome. :-) Thank you for sharing it with us. I can't wait to read it!
Thank you again for having me on your blog, and giving me an opportunity to connect with your readers!
Please feel free to stop back anytime. I LOVE to share. If you let me know when you have new books etc... I'll be sure to let everyone know. :-)
SUSANNAH SCOTT lives in the Missouri Ozarks and is the lone female in a very loud household of males ranging in age from 4 to 40. While she jokes that the extreme levels of testosterone inspired her to write romance, it is really the love of creating an excellent story, and the occasional dreams of twenty-foot dragons, that wake her and send her to the laptop before the chaos of daily life ensues. Susannah loves to hear from her readers at the following social media locations:

Luciana de Luca has a PhD in sass and gemology—and a problem. Her twin brother’s gambling debts have gotten out of hand, and a mob enforcer is blackmailing her to rob the latest, greatest mega-casino on the Strip. Although Lucy has worked her whole life to get away from her family’s grifter past, to save her brother, she dons three-inch heels and a sluts-r-us dress and struts into Alec’s Gerald’s casino, determined to put her long-forgotten thieving ways to the test again.
Alec Gerald, a shape-shifting dragon, has built the Crown Jewel casino to provide sanctuary for his people amongst the flash and awe of Las Vegas. Unfortunately, the sexy little thief trying to rob his gem exhibit turns out to be his mate, and he must woo her before he loses his dragon form forever. With enemies in every corner, and the all-important mating ceremony looming, Alec and Lucy must learn to trust each other, before time runs out for Alec and the rest of the dragons.
