Uniform Fetish Anthologies - Blog Tour, Double Author Interview, and #Giveaway

Uniform Fetish Anthologies
Genre: Romance/MM Romance
Release Date: February 27, 2015

Today I'm really excited to have not one, but two of the authors that contributed to the Uniform Fetish Anthologies stopping by to answer a few questions. We all love a man in uniform, and these two anthologies contain 19 - yes, you heard that correct - 19 stories about men in uniform! Uniform Fetish contains 10 stories about men in uniform and the women who steal their hearts, and Uniform Fetish: Manlove Edition contains 9 M/M romance stories.

First up is Lila Shaw. Lila's contribution to the Uniform Fetish Anthology was Person of Interest.

Hi Lila! Thanks for stopping by.

We all love a man in uniform, but what about those women that bring these men to their knees? What is it about your heroine that captivates your hero?

Lila:  What Damien loves is how Connie challenges him, but he also enjoys reciprocating and ruffling her feathers. They have a long and well-documented history of bickering in the workplace. Despite his needling, Damien respects and admires Connie's brains and wit as much as her feminine allure. Her exotic looks certainly don't hurt either--she's Indian with dark hair, skin and cinnamon spice-colored eyes.

Oh! Sounds like these two are lots of fun to watch! I just love all the build up that happens when the H/h are constantly bickering and needling each other!

What would Connie say is her man's favorite feature?

Lila:  Connie loves that Damien is protective. He carries all the telltale signs that he's willing to fight for what he believes in or wants. Damien's a good guy with a capital G, but he's almost too hot to handle in his tight black NCIS T-shirt. She describes him: 
His nose boasted an odd dip and flair, the souvenir of a pugilistic childhood, he'd once told her. As on his knuckles, silvery white scars tracked across his chin, above one eyebrow and at his hairline. But what always got to her, jellified her insides and never failed to send wet heat to her sex, were his eyes, as blue as the Aegean Sea...
Nice - sounds like Connie has quite a man in Damien!

I love quotes - do you have a favorite quote to share?

Lila:  I love a juicy fight between the heroine and her hero just before they crumble into each other's arms. Here is one of Connie and Damien's climactic moments:
Their eyes narrowed. Lips set into firm lines. Damien moved left, but Connie checked him. He moved right, and she blocked his path again. In the distance she could swear someone was whistling the tune from an old Eastwood western. A Fistful of Dollars?
"Last chance," Damien growled out between gritted teeth.
"Go away," Connie said, snarling.
Thank you for having me on your blog today! I hope readers will enjoy co-workers, Connie Patel and Damien Spiros, because before two people become lovers they are always "persons of interest" to each other. ;)

Thanks for stopping by, Lila, and sharing a bit about Connie and Damien!

She believes if you can’t occasionally laugh at human foibles, and especially the physical aspects of love, you’re taking life far too seriously … unless the condom breaks, then you have every right to fret.

Lilith Duvalier also stopped by to tell us a little about her characters. Lilith was part of the Uniform Fetish: Manlove Edition Anthology and contributed The British Are Coming.

Hi Lilith! Thanks for coming by today.

We all love a man in uniform - what is it about your man in uniform that makes him irresistible?

Lilith: I think what makes Elijah’s uniform irresistible is that most uniforms come with a job, but Elijah wears his uniform because of a lifetime of family tradition. He wears a recreation Revolutionary War Uniform the way his father has done at the reenactment every year in Elijah’s memory. His uniform is worn not just as family bonding, but to honor all the other gay men who wore a uniform and were forgotten. It’s also something that shows the way he meticulously cares about things.

That sounds like a wonderful tradition for Elijah to keep alive - and a very meaningful one!

I love quotes - do you have a favorite quote to share?
 “If I cannot move Heaven I will raise Hell.” - The Aenid (which I haven’t read, but it’s a damn good line)
“Sin Boldly” – Martin Luther. I also had a professor who said it all the time. I think it’s a pretty good life philosophy.
I like those, thanks for sharing. And I agree, "Sin Boldly" certainly makes a great life philosophy!

What would make the perfect date for Elijah and Jasper? Are they more apt to go out dancing, hit the bowling lane, stroll on the beach, or is there something else they would like to do?

Lilith: Elijah and Jasper are the types to really focus on the meaning of an action. So a perfect date is something thoughtful. Jasper getting tickets for the show Elijah really wanted to see. Elijah getting the ingredients for a recipe that Jasper wanted to try. They are the type of people to really take care of each other, then have intense sex for an hour, then cuddle, then maybe have sex again. Or ice cream. Either would be good. 

They sound like such a great, caring couple who are lucky to have found one another. And it's nice that they are really in tune with each other and make the effort to give each other what they need.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today, Lilith, and sharing a bit about Elijah and Jasper.

About Lilith Duvalier:
Lilith Duvalier is a shit-broke 20 something who regrets her college double major at least twice a week. After graduating in the worst of the recession she bounced around the state of Minnesota doing jobs that have given her the weirdest resume of anyone she knows. In the course of doing what it took to make rent, Lilith has been vehemently sworn at in most of the USA's regional accents, crashed a 50,000 dollar car into a lamp post, lived in a basement room built out of plywood in an illegal boarding house and was once paid 20 dollars out of the till to leave a Jimmy Johns. During those events she started writing erotica, figuring that her life couldn't get any weirder than it already was, and that the royalty checks would be worth being introduced to people as "the one I told you about".

These days Lilith has finally landed a full time job in her field, lives above the ground, and is beginning to worry she may have become a grown up.

Blurb and Book Trailer from The British Are Coming by Lilith Duvalier:

It’s still okay to be happy.

Elijah Comstock has been trying so hard to force himself to believe this, but family difficulties are always at the forefront of his mind.

He’s spent the entire semester refusing to pursue his crush on classmate Jasper Arondale. He even feels guilty about spending the last weekend of June the way he has always spent it- re-enacting the Battle of Monmouth at Monmouth Battlefield State park. His family has participated in the Revolutionary War Reenactment since Elijah was a toddler. He could never imagine missing it.

He could also never imagine that Jasper would walk through the front gates, not only ready to reciprocate Elijah’s crush, but to pursue him through two states and two hundred years for a kiss.
