Guest Blog and Giveaway with J.E. Taylor

Hi folks, I’m glad to be back on Fang-tastic books today. I’d like to introduce you to Jessica Whitman, my heroine in both Survival Games and Mind Games.

JET: Jessica, thanks for being with us today. I know there are several folks out there who want to know why you fell for Ty Aris when you were in captivity. Was it Stockholm Syndrome?

Jessica: I’d like to be able to say it was, but I know better. There was something between us from the moment our eyes met. More than just a physical connection. It was like finding the other half of my soul - the matching dark side I’d been missing all my life. Leaving him was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

JET: I’m sure that entire encounter was difficult. From what I understand, you and Tom Whitman are lucky to be alive and now the two of you are married, can you tell us how that happened?

Jessica: *smiles* When we were in the complex, Tom did his best to protect me and he was the only one that ever made me feel safe down there. I loved him for that and he apparently fell in love with me too. Coming back from the dead wasn’t easy for either of us but after we got all our paperwork settled and Danny and I finalized our divorce, he asked me to marry him. The rest is history.

JET: You were married to your husband for twenty years, was the divorce your idea or his?
Jessica: It was mutual. He found someone while I was gone and I can’t fault him for that. Besides, Danny would never be able to make me feel safe, no matter how hard he tried. He’d never be able to stave off the nightmares the way Tom can. Especially since I know Ty is out there somewhere. God, if Tom knew Ty was alive…

JET: If he knew Ty is alive what would happen?

Jessica: I’d hate to think what would happen if they came face to face again. Tom hates the man and the more time goes by, the stronger that hatred grows. He blames Ty for his first wife’s death and for everything that happened to me.

JET: What about you? Do you blame Ty for everything that happened?

Jessica: No, not for everything. Not for what Frank did to me. There is a lot to lay blame for, Tom’s wife being one of them as well as kidnapping me – but he never intentionally hurt me and if he hadn’t kidnapped me, I never would have met Tom.

JET: Do you think Ty will come for you?

Jessica: *sigh* Yes. He’ll come someday and when he does, I have no idea what I’ll do.

JET: Thank you again for joining us today.

Chris Ryan doesn’t understand why he’s alive. By all accounts he should have died in the prison he and his step-brother created. Dying screams and the ring of gunshots still haunt his dreams and to make matters worse, five years hasn’t erased his passion for Jessica Connor.

She left him bleeding on the cold concrete floor, escaping the prison that held her for close to a year. Semi-conscious and close to death, his gaze fell on an apparition of her son and white light filled his skin, healing his wounds and giving him a second chance . . . and to this day that power still rages within him.

Haunting visions of her daughter’s death drive him out of hiding and he shows up at her doorstep with the intent of giving her the power he safeguarded all these years. But his good intentions fall short when they realize he led the vengeful spirit of his step-brother straight to her.

Cancer is no longer their biggest worry, now Chris and Jessica must battle a ghost hell bent on destroying all of them.

This is one of my two series I have out there. This one lands on the steamy side of the fence. I also have an FBI series with a supernatural twist. Dark Reckoning and Vengeance are the two that are out now in that series. I also have a handful of shorts on Smashwords. Thanks for commenting!
