As part of the blog tour for Special Offers, I have author ML Ryan here today with a special interview with one of the characters. This is the perfect way to learn a little bit about the characters and the story, and will be enjoyable to both readers who have finished the story, and those who haven’t started yet.
Hello! Today I am pleased to interview Sebastian Kess. Sebastian is a magical humanoid from the parallel dimension of Coursodon and has recently been restored to his own body after being trapped in a Kindle.
What an interesting story. So, Mr. Kess, how did you get caught in an eBook reader?
Please, call me Sebastian. I never let a beautiful woman call me anything but. Back to your question, my job is to hunt those from my dimension who use their magical abilities to harm humans. While pursuing a particularly diabolical criminal, I was mortally wounded. I used the opportunity to test one of my many theories of spiritual convergence and converted myself to binary code. I planned to transfer myself to my laptop, but through a series of mishaps, I ended up in an electronic reading device.
Interesting, Sebastian. But, I see that you, or rather, your spiritual essence, somehow ended up inside a human woman. How did that come about?
The Kindle in which I was trapped was purchased and sent to Hailey Parrish. She unwittingly released me and I took refuge in her when she first powered up the device. Lovely girl, by the way, she took the entire co-habitation dilemma quite well.
Oh my! What was it like being inside a woman?
Well, my dear, I’ve been inside many women, but this was the first time I’ve been able to feel what they feel and experience the world through their eyes. Very enlightening indeed.
What was the worst thing about inhabiting a woman?
I don’t know how any of you can tolerate the PMS. I always believed it was all a scheme perpetuated by females to gain sympathy. I had no idea how physically and emotionally draining it could be. Took all my mental fortitude to contain myself. And by the time I recovered, it was time for the next month’s rollercoaster.
And the best thing?
Stop blushing, I am joking. Much as I tried to share some of my innate sexuality to my host, Hailey was quite adamant about me curbing my…libidinous needs while within her body. Pity really, after being alive for over 250-years, I’ve learned a thing or two about pleasuring a lady. Hailey truly missed a once in a lifetime opportunity.
All right, then…. You mentioned that Hailey wasn’t overly traumatized by your presence?
She was, how do you say it, a real trooper. At least, once she realized the voice in her head was me trying to communicate rather than a hallucination. She was a bit unnerved when it became apparent that I could see whatever she was seeing. But again, it’s not as if I’ve never seen a naked woman before. It wasn’t long before we came to an understanding, and the situation was smooth sailing from then on.
And somewhere during your inhabitation, your protégé, Alex Sunderland, figured out what was happening and helped restore you to your own body?
Correct. He is a very perceptive. Of course, I trained him. And he became quite enamored with Hailey. Both she and Alexander refused to act upon their desires until I was no longer within her. I rather enjoy threesomes, but Alex and Hailey are, apparently, much less adventurous than I. Let me tell you, the frustration involved with dealing with Hailey’s unrequited lust for Alexander was quite a burden.
I think that about wraps things up. Thanks for being our guest today, Sebastian.
Are we finished already? I have a few hours before I have to leave town, perhaps you would agree to join me for dinner? You now know so much about me, I would very much like to get to know you better.
You know, Sebastian, I never go out with people I interview. But there’s something about you that makes me want to make an exception.
Is it my devastating good looks?
No, not really.
My witty repartee?
No, not that either. I can’t quite explain it…you aren’t using some of that magical ability to influence me are you?
Although I could use magic, what would be the point when women are naturally drawn to me?
I can see that. Shall we go?
I thought you would never ask.

Hailey Parrish is quick-witted, irreverent, and hasn’t had a date in three years. She only wanted an eBook reader because her collection of paperbacks threatened to take over her small living space. Little did she know that the “special offers” that prompted the purchase included much more than a reduced price in exchange for a few ads. The device came pre-loaded with the essence of Sebastian Kess, an erudite womanizer with magical abilities from a parallel dimension. When she inadvertently releases him and he inhabits her body, she finally has a man inside her, just not in the way she imagined. And soon her predicament introduces her to yet another supernatural, the handsome could-be-the-man-of-her-dreams Alex Sunderland. Can Alex and Hailey find a way to return Sebastian to his own body, stay one step ahead of the criminals who want to keep him where he is, and not lose their sense of humor?
