Today's interview is with Kathryne Kennedy and there is a giveaway too :)
1. What is new in your life? :)
Kathryne: So glad you asked! I have a new puppy named Pikachu. She’s a Chihuahua mix, although I’ve been told she’s looks like a purbred Chi, but sometimes I think she has a bit of dachsund in her. I have been working on teaching her manners. She had a bad habit of biting, which I think she learned because she only had her three brothers to keep her company, and they just tussled all day play-fighting. She’s full of energy and so smart. I’m so lucky to have found her, and grateful to those who rescued her.
2. What is your new book Everlasting Enchantment about?
Kathryne: In the Relics of Merlin series, readers enter a Victorian England where magic has never died, and aristocratic titles are based on levels of magic. The lowest ranking baronets are spies for the prince and despised for their shape-shifting abilities…and seek Merlin’s fabled relics, the only magical artifacts that can threaten the aristocracy’s rule.
In Everlasting Enchantment, Sir Gareth Solimere, a Knight of the Round Table, seduced Merlin’s lover and in retaliation, the great wizard trapped the knight in a magical relic, cursing Gareth to imprisonment until the knight can find his one true love. After centuries of searching, Gareth falls deeply in love with a were-panther, Millicent Pantere, but the spell does not lift, and he realizes it may require Millicent loving him as much as he loves her…a task he fears may take more than just his powers of seduction.
3. Will there be more Relics of Merlin books?
Kathryne: I don’t have any planned at the moment, but I think I will get the urge to visit this world again in the future.
4. What is the most fun thing about writing these alternate earth/paranormal romance/fantasy books? Kathryne: Creating the world. I love love love world-building, creating new realms that produce characters specific to that environment…and new love stories that couldn’t exist without them.
5. Make my readers swoon over Sir Gareth, tell us something good...
Kathryne: Heavens, he’s all goodness, probably the most honorable, chivalrous hero I have ever written about. Which makes sense, since he was once a knight of King Arthur’s Round Table. But since he’s been trapped in a relic for centuries, destined to seduce one woman after another until he finds his one true love, he’s had rather a lot of practice at charming a lady. In Everlasting Enchantment, he manages to make quite a few young ladies swoon…including the rather infamous Lady Chatterley. You’ll have to let me know if Sir Gareth manages to make a twenty-first century modern woman swoon as well.
6. And last, what are you working on right now?
Kathryne: I’m brainstorming another novel in The Elven Lord’s series, and fiddling with a young adult fantasy series. I hope to make some progress on both after I finish the blog tour and after the holidays. In the real world, Christmas is a most magical time for me.

EVERLASTING ENCHANTMENT BY KATHRYNE KENNEDY – IN STORES DECEMBER 2013
Powerful Magic is Afoot …
Millicent Pantere has lived her entire life in the notorious London Underground. She cares nothing for the problems of the crown or the intrigues of society. But the ladies of the realm are acting strangely, and Millicent is coerced into tracking down the rumors of a mysterious man—a magic man who comes in the night and disappears at dawn.
And So the Hunt Begins…
Millicent's search leads her to one of Merlin's legendary relics and the seductive knight whose fate is bound up with it. Centuries ago, Sir Gareth Solimere made the mistake of seducing the wrong woman, and he has been trapped ever since by a diabolical curse. He's looking for the one who can break the enchantment—but in this world, there is no love without betrayal...
