Teaser Tuesday - The Replacement

"The sound of his voice made shudders creep down my neck.  A person would have to be crazy to go down into a lair of dead things."

If you want to take a walk on the wild side and into something original, run don't walk to your neighborhood bookstore and buy this.  Brenna Yovanoff has a warped view and awesome creativity that I adore.

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two 'teaser' sentences from somewhere on that page.
4. Add the title and Author's name too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR pile.

Oakley Interview

Werewolf & Bodyguard to Prudence Phelan
Character Interview
The Legacy of Kilkenny

I was fortunate enough to have an interview with Oakley from The Legacy of Kilkenny  the other day.  It was informative and fun.  Of course he isn't bad to look at either.  Enjoy.
Oakley Interview -

You’re in really good shape.  In The Legacy of Kilkenny we read about different workouts that you, Pru and Abel do, what is your favorite sport?  Oakley - I’m a college football fan all the way.  Boomer Sooner!

If you had to describe yourself to someone what would be your definition? Oakley -*laughing* My definition?  I don’t know, part cowboy, part ninja, part Italian chef.  I can make a mean lasagna and heat up a can of biscuits like a rock star.  No seriously, I do like to cook but with my assignment as Pru’s bodyguard I don’t get to do it as often as I would like to.  On Sunday’s Dolly does let me help her out with the pack dinner.

When you’re not out chasing down the antidote to the Human Vampiric Virus (HVV) and fighting rogue werewolves what do you do in your down time?  Oakley - I like to sketch the pack.  Pru is gorgeous to draw.  Her body is like a piece of art from the curves of her hips as they are perfectly lined with her shoulders and that beautiful slender neck of hers could make a grown man tremble.  That sounds dorky doesn’t it?  No, I do love to draw and I love to notice the similarities of the pack as they are in wolf form and their human form. 

Speaking of vampires, how many have you staked? Oakley  -  Not enough.  *laughing* No seriously, there is one in particular that is on the short list.

How would you describe Pru?  Oakley - As for her looks?  She is beautiful with shoulder length red hair and bright gray eyes.  She looks like a princess and kicks ass like a ninja.  She was accepted to Harvard but turned it down to take her assignment to train Abel Casey. 

There is a rumor that you started your relationship with Pru without alpha consent.  Is that true?  Oakley - You and I agreed not to discuss that.  If you’re going back on your word…..I’m leaving.

No, no, no.  I’m sorry, please don’t leave.  The Legacy of Kilkenny is a young adult book, and you are a young adult but you’re not a teenager.  How old are you?  Oakley - I’m 22.

When is your birthday?  Oakley  - December 25th

A Christmas birthday, so you eat birthday cake on Christmas?  Oakley - Of course!  We’re all about the cake.

That makes you what, four years older than Pru?  Oakley - More like 3 1/2

In the next book Malevolence will you kill the vampire Arien?  Oakley - You’ll have to read the book to find out. *winks* If you want to know more about that vampire make sure to read the novella The Seduction it will be coming out by Nov 1, 2011.  It is Allie’s personal journal (Abel’s sister that dates vampires).
I’ve heard that Parker has a pretty big fan base, does that make you jealous?  Oakley -  If you like the loner bad boy rogue type of wolf than I guess you’d like Parker.  I would never in a million years be jealous of that knucklehead. 

If Abel the Great Wolf were to tell you he’d like to date Pru, would you let him?  Oakley -  First off, Abel would never do that.  Second, Pru makes her own decisions.  If she wants to be with Abel, I will respect that choice.  If this silly scenario ever happened; in all honesty I’d leave the pack.

Do you really think Abel Casey has what it takes to be The Great Wolf?  Oakley -  Without a doubt I KNOW he is the Great Wolf.  He has really grown up over the series and he has more power in his little finger than the entire pack all together.

Where can we buy The Legacy of KilkennyOakley -  Amazon - Barnes and Noble - Smashwords or go to for more information.

Thank you for this candid interview.  I hope everyone will want to read more about you and download the book.  Readers - If you’re not familiar with Smashwords, you can download any format you need for your e-reader.  So if you have a I-pad you can put the book on it and if you have a Nook too you can get the book for your Nook.  That is a bonus!  Some people have all of the e-readers and they can have the book in every format without buying it multiple times. 

HINT - The book is FREE for a limited time on  - Woo Hoo for YOU!

Allie's Personal Journal 
A passage taken from her Feb 16 entry

I’ve never, ever felt this way before.  When his hand touches mine, the coolness of his touch, melts away my fears.  I do fear that I have no choice but to fall…madly….deeply… oh I can’t even finish.

Your Inner Halloween Freak Giveaway

That's me!  I love me some Halloween - it gives me the chance to wear black and spider earrings.... oh and my skeleton jewelry... I can wear my necklace that says Good Witch.. I get to do all of that and not be considered a freak.  Don't get me wrong... I love a good freak (get your mind out of the gutter) - I just like it more when people actually appreciate my dark side.  People will come up and say things like "Oh, I just love your sparkly spider earrings, where ever did you buy those"  if I wear the same earrings in June people walk by and whisper "look at that freak"... seriously.  If you love them in October be honest with yourself and love them in June... you're the freak.  I love spooky stuff all year long.  I'm more of a glam spooky lover - you know, stuff that sparkles and stuff that is gothic.
