10 Questions With Chago
This week seems to be all about Chago, the hero of my new novel, SEAL OF SURRENDER. He’s been questioned and photographed and even won the first round of the Hot Heroes Face Off over on Facebook! All of this publicity chafes more than a bit with his brooding, introverted nature and the running of his beloved Montana ranch. So, to appease his ever-growing number of adoring fans, I decided to do a variation of by own blog’s 10 Questions with… interview segment today.
I caught him as he was dashing out the door and off to complete another mission with his Scion brethren and pretty much tied him to a chair to get him to answer these. (Mind out of 50 Shades-land ladies… it’s not that kind of a book ***wink***).
So before he loses his quite formidable temper with me, here are Chago’s answers to a special 10 Questions With…
1) Best place to live: “Rancho Sagrado, of course.”
2) Favorite food: “Anything made by my brother Luther. The guy’s a fantastic chef.”
3) Favorite time of day: “Anytime I’m not tied up by a crazy author.” ***edited out foreign expletive here*** “Santo Cristo, woman! Fine. Dusk. Are we done?”
No. 10 Questions, remember?
4) Where would be your ideal vacation spot? “Anywhere private, away from nosy people.”
Touché. Ignoring his heated ice-blue glare, I move on…
5) Best day ever? “The day I met my Irena.”
Awwww…. ***happy author sigh***
Okay, the last five are the rapid-fire round:
Boxers or briefs? “Neither.”
Favorite color? “Red.”
Favorite alcoholic beverage: “Fine Madeira.”
Current top three songs on your i-pod? “What’s an i-pod?”
And last, but not least:
Where are you going from here? “That’s top-secret, señorita author.” ***he shrugs out of the restraints and stalks to the door*** “You’ll just have to wait and see.” ***gives me a final wink before disappearing***
Well, I hope you enjoyed this brief conversation with the hero of my latest book, SEAL OF SURRENDER. Maybe next time I can keep him a bit longer.
If you would like to know more about Chago, or would like to cheer him on in the next round of the Crimson Romance Hot Heroes Face Off, please follow the link below to join the Facebook event. He’d be most appreciative of your votes! J
And thanks so much for having me on your blog today, Roxanne!

Love, like War, will always find a way…
War has shaped every aspect of Irena Soldan’s life—her childhood, her work, her DNA. Unaware she is the genetic host of the second Seal of the Apocalypse, Irena battles for those who cannot fight for themselves. As a top human-rights operative for The Omega Consortium, her company provides both the financial backing required to undertake her task and a charismatic, publicity-loving boss to promote her cause. Life proceeds on plan for Irena until a mysterious, sexy stranger arrives claiming to be her guardian and Irena’s path takes a sudden, inauspicious turn for both the erotic and the lethal.
Chago has always been the quiet one amongst his warrior Scion brethren—the brooding, Spanish combat expert with a hidden soft side. A member of Divinity’s covert special forces, he’s protected humanity for more than a millennium. Still, his greatest joy comes not from the battlefield, but from tending the cattle herd on his remote Montana ranch.
Irena’s new assignment takes her straight to the heart of a bloody civil conflict in Sub-Saharan Africa and Chago’s mission demands he follow. Expecting a seething cauldron of female whoop-ass, he instead discovers a harbinger of peace amidst a world of ever-increasing violence. The explosively tense situation is further magnified by the cunning Omega Consortium leader, his ambiguous personal agenda, and an ancient foe whose audacious rise to power threatens the world’s very existence.
Despite the cataclysmic circumstances, an undeniable attraction ignites between Chago and Irena. Together, they must unravel the ancient puzzle of the Seals and discover her employer’s ulterior plans before they both become casualties of War. Soon, both are forced to choose between a past riddled with old torments or risk everything they treasure on a love capable of defeating evil incarnate.

Love conquers all… but can it stop the Apocalypse?
Mira Herald is having the worst life ever. Not only is she plagued by horrific nightmares starring the Devil himself, she’s now the target of a power-hungry, rogue minion, freshly sprung from Hell and bent on her destruction. To complicate matters further, she’s acquired a stalker. One who insists he’s a divine warrior sent for her protection because she houses an ancient relic with the power to unleash Armageddon. Last time Mira checked, she wasn’t insane. Still, all this celestial mayhem is enough to drive a girl crazy.
Kagan is a member of the Scion, an elite team of immortal warriors selected by Divinity to aid mankind and save the world. After a century alone, Kagan is summoned for a new mission. He’s eager to begin. Eager until he’s informed his mission consists of protecting a woman with no clue to the power she wields. Plus, his briefing fails to prepare him for his new target’s cosmic-sized attitude problem. As Divinity’s sworn servant, he’s required to fulfill his duty. His oath, however, does not require him to be enthusiastic about his new assignment or warm-and-fuzzy toward his new compatriot. He plans a wham-bam rescue and a quick return to solitude.
The rogue minion attacks—with the backing of a mysterious organization—and all Hades erupts, putting a fast end to any whirlwind escapes. Accustomed to staunch independence, Mira’s survival now requires full cooperation and an unwavering belief in Kagan. The battle-hardened warrior is also forced to chose: between duty and desire. Amidst the turmoil, Kagan and Mira’s undeniable passion draws them closer to each other and down a path neither expected but both yearn for, more than they ever knew.
Will love save the day? The world’s fate depends on the answer.
