Happy Tuesday, cyber surfers. Welcome to the inaugural edition of What A Character, a weekly conversation with some diverse and interesting characters. Brady Scott is my first victim, er … interviewee, and all I can say is, Wowza!!!

I was stoked when the fabulous Laura Kaye agreed to loan me Brady, the hero of her hot damn contemporary, One Night With a Hero. Laura delivers rocking story lines full of gripping emotion and steam that leave you longing for more. Brady and Joss’ story is no exception. But hey, it’s your lucky day. Brady’s here to give us … a little more.

Thanks for the loan, Laura, and welcome to my mania, Brady.

So, in Twitter fashion, tell us about your story in 140 characters or less.

Brady: Sure. Here goes:

The story is about me getting the fucking awesome girl, and a family too, despite the fact I did everything possible to mess things up.

Mac: LOL You did struggle just a little before you got things straight, but I have to say, you even struggle sexy. What do you consider your biggest strength? Biggest weakness?

Brady: Joss is my biggest strength. She’s my rock in a world that often makes no damn sense.

Anger is my biggest weakness. I’m a work in progress where that’s concerned, but I’m getting there.

Mac: Joss certainly doesn’t take anyone’s crap, does she? But with a heart as big as hers, she’s bound to help you overcome that anger. The romance genre is often heavy with heartbreaking conflict, but what makes you laugh?

Brady: Nicky and Joss are what most make me laugh and smile. And the memory of that whipped cream hanging on Joss’s face and in her hair. That still makes me chuckle.

Mac: That made me laugh too, and then I needed a fan. 😉 What was the toughest aspect of your story for you and your author, Laura, to work through?

Brady: Trying to come to some kind of peace about everything that had happened with my father, and realizing that I had what it took to get passed that, and always had.

Mac: A nasty combination I can see would be hard to balance, but you and Laura managed it. Now, how about a peek behind the cover? Give us a short excerpt from your favorite scene in the story? And tell us why it’s your favorite.

Brady: Okay, easy, this was right after Joss accidentally sprayed herself with whipped cream:

Deep belly laughs racked him until he had to push his chair back from the table and grasp his stomach. Her face went bright red. She narrowed her eyes and scowled at him, but even that was funny because of the whipped cream hanging off the corner of her eyelashes.

“Sorry, I’m sorry,” he choked. He handed her a napkin. “Here.” She ripped it from his hand, setting him off again.

Something cool hit him in the forehead.

His laughter died in his chest and he gaped up at her as whipped cream sagged across his eye.

And then he was in motion.

It’s my favorite because it was the first time in so, so long that I’d felt anything like joy. And Joss gave that to me. I also like it because of what happened after, but for that you have to read the book.

Mac: LOL You’re a tease, Brady. Luckily, I’ve already read the book. Ahem, I’m warm just remembering what came next. You’re a doll for sharing with us today, Brady. Is there anything you’d like to ask our visitors before we finish?

Brady: Sure. Do you all like stories with military heroes? And, if so, why? Also, what do you like on your waffles? *chuckles as I picture Joss again*

Mac: Oh, yeah. A major tease! 😉

About One Night with a Hero:

He wants just one night…

After growing up with an abusive, alcoholic father, Army Special Forces Sgt. Brady Scott vowed never to marry or have kids. Sent stateside to get his head on straight—and his anger in check—Brady’s looking for a distraction. He finds it in his beautiful new neighbor’s one-night-only offer for hot sex, but her ability to make him forget is addictive. Suddenly, Brady’s not so sure he can stay away.

…what they need is each other.

Orphaned as a child, community center director Joss Daniels swore she’d never put herself in a position to be left behind again, but she can’t deny herself one sizzling night with the sexy soldier who makes her laugh and kisses her senseless. When Joss discovers she’s pregnant, Brady’s rejection leaves her feeling abandoned. Now, they must overcome their fears before they lose the love and security they’ve found in each other, but can they let go of the past to create a future together?

      Hiya Georgie,

      Does the other stuff in one’s life ever die down? Please tell me it dies down. Please! 😉

      You’ll love Brady’ & Joss’ story. It’s a great addition for your TBR list, and not just because Brady is smoking hot! Though that doesn’t hurt at all.

      Thanks for popping in, sweetie.

  2. Evelyn says:

  6. Nice to see you here chattin’ with Mac, Laura; even nicer to have Brady looming large as he does so well in the novel. Great story, Laura and a fine hero!

    • maccrowne says:

      “Looming large” I love it, Rolynn and it’s so right on. Brady makes an impression. From page one I knew he was going take me on a entertaining ride.

      Thanks for stopping by, hon

  7. Vonnie Davis says:

    I’m staying out of my writing cave for one hour today to answer emails and visit some of my favorite blogs. I feel so out of touch. What a treat to see you’ve got Laura here…and what a balm for my cave-dimmed eyes to drool…er…gaze on Body’s hawt-damn face and shoulders. Makes my palms itch to touch. Awesome excerpt, Laura. Mac, I owe you a reply email. That, too, I’ll take care of this morning.

    I have this book on Kindle-baby and can’t wait to get started.

    • maccrowne says:

      Hey V! *waving frantically*

      Thrilled to see you haven’t perished in your cave. 😉 I thought of you yesterday when I spotted a woman typing away on her laptop in a booth at the local diner. I thought, is she writing a sex scene, and does that waiter she is smiling at know? he he

      So glad you stopped in for a little refreshment. Brady is good. Brady is hot.

    • Laura Kaye says:

      The hours of I lost staring at that boy’s shoulders and biceps! *shakes head* LOL Thanks for stopping by, Vonnie!

  8. Love this idea for a blog post! Love the hot hero even more. I will be adding this to my to read list for sure. This was a great interview- the photo didn’t hurt either.

  9. OMIGOSH! This sounds awesome! And what a great interview. I felt like I was talking to him. Great job!

  10. Wow – that was a thrill seeing the hunky Brady again! Thanks Laura and Mac for lending him to us drooling ladies 🙂
    Brady – can you give a finger-wave to the gorgeous Marco for me? Better to come from you – I’d just get the nervous giggles. I’ve got a real soft spot for him too. 😉

    • maccrowne says:

      LOL LaVerne,

      You’ve slipped into reader reality. An awesome place to be, isn’t it? Thanks for stopping by, sweetie.

  11. Just tell me why I can’t get around to reading everything about you, Brady? Can I please have a 48 hour day?
    Sounds like a fantastic book! Thanks to Mac and Laura for sharing him!

    • maccrowne says:

      If you find that 48 hour day, Nancy, share it with the rest of us. Please! 😉 But like with all good stories, putting life’s chaos on hold for a few hours to spend some time with Brady will be well worth the effort.
