Before I put this Hottie on the hot seat, I should let you know about all the potential side-benefits of reading this post:

STOP GIVEAWAY: I’m giving away an electronic copy of my own book, Desire Unleashed, as part of this giveaway hop. To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment here, working in the name of the gorgeous hunk I’m interviewing.

HOP GIVEAWAY: There’s a $10 Gift Card up for grabs. The lucky winner will be announced shortly after the hop’s end, and one of the entry options is commenting here. Don’t forget to scroll down to find out how to enter.

BONUS $100 GIVEAWAY: I’m one of the many romance authors taking part in a completely separate giveaway, where you can win a $100 Gift Card and tons of eBooks. For your convenience, I’ve also linked to it at the bottom of this post.

With the admin stuff out of the way, let me scoot a little bit closer to Thomas.

Q: Tell us about yourself. Do you consider yourself your author’s muse or bane of her existence?
Thomas: I’m a bastard of a character truth be told. Even my mum agrees I could give the devil a hard time so a romance novelist is easy to torture. She wants me to fall in love but I’ll fight that fancy of hers until the end.

Q:  Speaking of such matters, tell me about your love life.
Thomas: What love life? (Awkward laugh).  I’m happily divorced from the most insidious creature in the world.  She’s a back stabbing monster that left me frozen. I don’t date. I fuck. No time with the constant touring and recording schedule to bother getting to know anyone even if I wanted to.  Basically, music is both muse and lover to me.

Q:  What kind of woman would you like to meet, if you had time?
Thomas:  (Long pause before rubbing his temples and responding quietly.) I’m not sure she exists.  I want a woman who is kind, genuine, smart and independent.  Someone who will love me for me and not for the money and fame. She has to like kids, music and motorcycles, preferably in that order.

Q:  You have a four-year-old son, how do you balance fatherhood with such a busy performance schedule?
Thomas: Not as well as I would like.  I love my son but I don’t get to spend the time with him I would wish.  I have a shared custody arrangement so I get him for a few weeks at a time twice a year.  It’s tough since he’s too young to really talk much on the phone in between visits but we do get to travel to England and visit with my parents every summer.  I’m thinking we might start doing video calls and then I can sing to him or read him stories. 
Q:  What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Thomas: Hands down, Strawberry rules.

Q: Has your author ever put you into an embarrassing situation? How did you handle it?
Thomas:  (Slaps hand over face.) Oh bollocks. She put me in a right dicey spot early on. I don’t want to go off the cuff too much about it but she hooked me up with a virgin temptress without giving me a clue.  I was a tosser.

It was a pleasure spending some time alone with Thomas Morgan, but now he must depart. If you’re curious, Shane from my book Desire Unleashed is being interviewed over here There’s an eBook you can win there as well.
Thanks again for stopping by, and don’t forget to scroll past all the information below to find out how to win a $10 gift card and other prizes.
Book Title: Isabel’s Awakening

It’s been five busy years, and Newcastle-born singer/guitarist Thomas Morgan is still punishing himself for his younger brother’s death.
Thomas’s young, fashion-model wife once led her husband’s idolizing brother, Chris, into both drugs and an adulterous relationship. The loss of his brother and total destruction of his marriage destroyed Thomas. To avoid entanglements with others, even his young son, Thomas focused on promoting his music and the management of his now highly profitable record company. He thought he had everything at a safe distance, at least until Isabel literally slammed into his life.
High school teacher, Isabel Warren, finds herself falling head over heels in love with the sexy-as-sin guitarist for the rock band Becket. Soon Isabel’s orderly world of lesson plans, thesis writing, and student loan debt is competing against desire, passion, and her vulnerable heart.
Isabel struggles to navigate her newly stirred passions with her rising academic career and independent nature. As the sex sizzles, the two lovers will have to decide which parts of their dreams they will sacrifice for their fledgling relationship. 
Can Thomas ever trust and love again, and will the young woman he meets ever have the confidence and strength to be with him?
