Character Interview from THREE HEARTS by Grace R. Duncan

Thank you to Áine for sharing her blog space today! I’m happy to share a short interview with the boys from Three Hearts. I hope you enjoy!

 

Please welcome Liam and Mason today. Thanks for joining us guys!

Mason: No problem. I’m just glad we could take a short break from the pups.

Liam: Oh gods, yes. I love them, but things can get to be a little crazy at times with them.

I bet! So, let’s get right into the questions then. So, tell me first, about the first time you saw each other.

Mason: Well, I wasn’t in on his interview, so I didn’t get to see that. But our employee resources department is right next to one of the conference rooms and I happened to be in there the day he started. One look and one sniff had me in a rather embarrassing situation. *laughs* He’s always been gorgeous to me and that day was no exception. I knew in that moment I had to get to know him.

Liam: *rolls eyes* You’re crazy.

Mason: *grins* About you, baby.

Liam: *shakes head* Right, so, it turns out I saw him in the conference room that same day. Of course he turned my head. I don’t think he realized then—or now—half the company wants in his pants. If they’re interested in men, they do.

Mason snorts.

Liam: *shrugs* He doesn’t believe me, but dear gods, he was sex on legs—well, I couldn’t see his legs, just his face and upper body but damn. *fans himself* I started crushing on him back then. Of course, being on separate floors, I didn’t get to see him much, but any chance I could get to get a glimpse, I took it.

*laughs* You two are funny. Liam, what was the worst part of your pregnancy? And Mason, what was the hardest thing to see from him?

Liam: Oh gods, not seeing my feet. Or peeing all the time. I think that was the worst; I had the bladder capacity of a teaspoon. Every time I thought I’d get a break, one of the pups would move and sit right on it. And then, of course, there was the fact that I had to sit to do it. I couldn’t see my dick enough to aim. That drove me nuts. I’m a guy! One of the best parts of being a guy is being able to stand to pee! And yet, there I was, having to sit…

Mason: *kisses Liam’s temple* I am so glad I’m not the one carrying them. *Liam elbows him.* Oof! Seriously, though. I am, but at the same time, I would, if it meant he didn’t go through everything he does. Anyway, the hardest thing for me was when he was hurting emotionally. I know it’s his hormones, but watching him cry is so hard, especially knowing I caused it.

Liam: *kisses Mason* You’re forgiven.

Mason laughs.

So, one more, then I’ll let you get back to the pups.

Liam: That’s okay! Really! I don’t mind the break.

Well, perhaps you can use the quiet time for something else then.

Mason: *grins* I’m sure we can come up with something.

Liam blushes.

*laughs* Anyway, so… you both knew you wanted a big family. How big did you imagine? And did you picture the number you ended up with?

Mason: Oh hell no. *both laugh* Seriously. I guess I figured maybe something like my parents had? There are eight kids in my family. I thought maybe that big, but I certainly didn’t expect as many as we ended up with.

Liam: *shakes head* Me either. I mean, big to me would have been four kids, since it was just my dad and me. I wouldn’t trade them, though. They’re all different, all ours. It can be chaotic a lot of the time, but we’ve got a system down and we wouldn’t want it any other way.

Mason: No, we wouldn’t.

I’m glad to hear it. Thanks for spending time with us. Now go enjoy the rest of your quiet time.

Mason: Oh we will. *waggles eyebrows*

Liam: Yeah, I can get with that…

 

Want to know how many pups Liam and Mason end up with? You should go read Three Hearts to find out. *winks* Thanks again to Áine for sharing her blog space. Hope you enjoyed it!

Blurb:

Liam Scott is sick. That’s not supposed to be possible. As a wolf shifter, he’s supposed to be able to heal. The omega gene he was born with means he’s capable of carrying shifter young and Liam is worried that whatever is wrong will mean his one-day hope of having pups will be dashed. But despite the fears keeping him away from the doctor until now, he knows he needs to go.

It turns out the sickness is temporary, but the treatment causes a whole other problem.

Mason’s alpha gene means he’s one of very few wolves who can impregnate an omega male. For two years, he’d been watching Liam, but things kept getting in the way. When Liam shows up in heat, Mason recognizes the opportunity he needs and doesn’t hesitate make to Liam his mate and the father of his pups.

But Liam has old wounds and fears to work through which the pregnancy is only making worse, and Mason isn’t sure how to get past them to show he’s serious about making a life together as loving mates. It’s not until a female wolf decides Mason should be hers that Liam makes his biggest worry known—and Mason can finally put the fears to rest.

Excerpt:

CHAPTER 1

Liam

When the alarm went off, I smacked it into submission, then burrowed farther into my pillow. The last thing I wanted to do was get out of bed. Despite knowing I had to have slept, I had absolutely zero energy. I didn’t remember waking up overnight at all, and I knew I’d lain down by ten and fallen asleep pretty fast.

I gave in to a moment of self-pity. As a wolf shifter, I wasn’t supposed to be sick. I wasn’t supposed to be able to get sick with common things. And if I got sick, I was supposed to be able to recover within a day or two. Our injuries never lasted more than a day or two, and that was only if it was severe. We didn’t get diseases, especially human ones. And if we did manage to contract some kind of bug that attacked wolf immunity, our bodies killed it quickly.

There were rumors that a form of cancer had started hitting the wolf population. That scared me more than a little, especially recently, with whatever was wrong with me. It was one reason why I hadn’t yet gone to the doctor. I wasn’t sure I wanted to hear what they’d tell me.

Because I was also not a typical male shifter. I was one of a rare type the Idiots That Be named “omega.” I didn’t know if they found it ironic or what when they borrowed the name from the humans’ faulty knowledge of wild wolves. But omega was definitely a misnomer. It used to mean “weak.” The bottom of the totem pole, as it were, in a wolf pack. I was on the smaller side, but that was no more indicative of my strength than my light brown hair was.

Omegas are as strong as most other wolves, as fast as any of them. We’re not looked down on—for the most part—by other wolves, or made to be the last to do or get anything. Sure, there are always some who insist we’re inferior. I suspect it’s mostly jealousy, though that wasn’t always easy to remember when I was the one being picked on.

No, what made us unique was that omegas could carry and give birth to our young.

Like the female wolves, omegas went into heat once a month, usually for four days around the new moon. Sometimes more or less; it was as individual as human females were. We wolves, omega and female alike, took a form of birth control that suppressed our heat. I had no idea how it worked with our metabolism, but apparently the shifter scientists knew a lot more than me. So, as the new moon approached, I took a pill twice a day and voila—no heat.

Which was good because going through heat sucked.

It was the worst horniness imaginable. I could jack off constantly for that four-day period and it didn’t relieve me. I could stuff my ass full of dildos and nothing helped. The only thing that would was the one thing I hadn’t let myself do—find an alpha male to breed me.

Yes, we had alphas. It was a genetic marker in their blood, not much else. Most of them were a bit bigger than the rest of us, some a bit stronger. But it wasn’t a huge difference. And I hadn’t yet met an alpha with the kind of asshole attitude that’s so frequently portrayed in fiction. They got named alpha because they were discovered first. Alpha males were the only ones who could impregnate an omega, which was probably because of that genetic marker. And while the scientists understood it, I didn’t.

The rest of the wolf population didn’t have a specific designation. If you weren’t an alpha or omega, you were just a plain ol’ wolf.

But even though I wasn’t ready to mate yet, I did want to have pups someday. So I was scared to death of what a doctor would tell me. What if something was wrong and I couldn’t have them?

I was going to have to put aside my fear, though. It’d been going on for two months now. Despite shifting on the full moon—we had no choice; we were forced through the shift—and exercising when I could, running at other times, I hadn’t gotten better.

I was exhausted. All the time. I got cold at the drop of a hat.

And I’d been forgetting shit. Stupid little details, that were driving me crazy. It had to stop.
