Interview + Giveaway: Stacey O'Neale + Under His Skin


Today I have the pleasure of welcoming author Stacey O'Neale back to the blog to answer a few questions about her newest paranormal romance, Under His Skin. I'm a HUGE sucker for a best friends to lovers romance, so I couldn't be more excited to dive into Kaden and Annabelle's story. Oh, and Kaden is an extraterrestrial, so Monday's release date can't come fast enough...

I hope you guys enjoy the interview!

If Annabelle had to bake a dessert that she felt best represented her, what deliciousness would she come up with? If she had to bake one that represented Kaden?

Ha! This is a fun question. Annabelle would be an apple pie. She’s very wholesome with a deep connection to her town. She’s also very easy and likable. Kaden would be a chocolate lava cake. A little rough on the outside, but all warm and gooey on the inside.

*Jenny wanders off to go buy cake and pie*

Since Kaden has spent quite a bit of time on Earth, he’s familiar with the various movie portrayals of alien life. What movie would he say made him laugh the hardest at its depiction of extraterrestrials?

He would choose Independence Day because the aliens look really creepy, plus they came to Earth looking to destroy all human life. He was as curious about us as we are with them. Too many movies and books assume we wouldn’t get along. Kaden would object to that.

What’s one thing about his species that Kaden wishes everyone on earth could know?

That they are not dangerous. They want more than anything to be part of society.

If Kaden could take Annabelle to his home planet, what aspect of it would he think she’d be most surprised/fascinated by?

Their advantaged medicines and technology. His species predates humans. They’ve figured out things that our scientists are still discovering/learning. 

Back on Kaden’s home planet, what’s the most outrageous rumor that exists about the people of Earth?

It would be amusing if they thought we would one day invade them. Perhaps they have movies/books depicting us as dangerous creatures. ;-)

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my questions Stacey!

UNDER HIS SKIN

Earth girls are never easy. But they're worth it.
 

Bakery owner Annabelle Sparks' business is booming ever since she won reality TV's Cupcake Wars. The one thing deflating her happy soufflé? The extremely sexy Kaden Chance only sees her as a best friend-and Annabelle wants so much more. After waiting a year for him recognize their chemistry, she's giving up and dating other people.
 

What she doesn't know is Kaden's heart doesn't actually beat. He's not human. Heck, he's not even from Earth. To retain his intergalactic immunity, no one can ever know he is an extraterrestrial. But when Annabelle starts dating, something strange happens to Kaden's unmoved heart: it begins to beat. Now he faces an impossible choice-tell Annabelle the truth and be deported-or lose his last chance at love.

    This looks like fun. I would have thought the funniest movies would have been the 50s B movies. LOL

  10. I can't think of an alien, haha! Maybe that one guy from the 5th Wave series (clearly he's memorable, since I have no idea what his name is :p)?

    I added this to my TBR! Sounds like a fun read, and I'm a sucker for friends to lovers.

    I haven't read a lot of books about aliens however I liked Alf from the late 80's/ 90's TV show. I thought he was funny except for the fact he ate cats.
