Q&A with Sidney Halston of KISS MARRY KILL

Lexi: Last time our guest was here we got to drool over her hot Worth The Fight covers. But today we get to see something new! And we love new. Welcome back, Sidney Halston!

Hi Lexi! I’m so excited to be here. Thank you!

Lexi: Congratulations on your first romantic suspense release! The cover for Kiss Mary Kill is perfect for the genre. I am a cover-sucker and a good one will get me to buy a book without much of a glance at the back blurb. What is your favorite thing about Kiss Mary Kill’s cover?

Well, the title is my favorite part. It’s perfect. And I love how the title takes up the entire cover. It reminds me of one of those old school suspense novels with the couple running in silhouette in the background.

Lexi: I did read the Kiss Mary Kill blurb and it gave me chills. Stalkers are incredibly creepy. And I hear your plot has a great twist! A necessity for a good romantic suspense. When you wrote that scene were you giddy? Any fist pumps for nailing it?

HAHA. Sort of. I wish I was that confident. After writing and re-writing then re-re-writing it, yes, eventually there was some yelling and fist pumps, and maybe even some tears. Suspense is hard and not my normal genre, so that was one obstacle. But, even harder was balancing it out with the romance. I didn’t want a full-blown suspense where the romance took a back seat. My love is romance and I wanted that to shine through so balancing that was difficult. But, I think it came out pretty good. I hope you all will agree!

Lexi: Someone certainly gets nailed…your heroine, Megan Cruz. She is a pop star who gets reacquainted with Jax. If you were to pick a type of wine, what kind would Megan be?

I like this question. Hmmm…let me think. It took Megan a very long time to become the feisty confident woman that she is. So, maybe a finely aged Pinot Noir. Something with a little kick to it.

Lexi: Kiss Mary Kill is one book I will read curled up with a glass of wine. Do you pop any bubbly or toast when you have a book birthday?

I try to. Sometimes it’s difficult since it’s usually a Tuesday and I’m trying to wrangle my kids to school, to do homework, baths, food, sleep…etc. But when I’m finally relaxed, I’ll have a glass of wine or I’ll wait until the weekend and maybe enjoy a few glasses of Prosecco.

Lexi: We are very excited for your new release and wish you success! We hope to see you back for book two in the Iron Clad Security Series!

Absolutely. I’d love to. I just finished book two of the series, Last First Kiss, and am currently writing book three, Kiss Kiss Bang. I hope you enjoy the series and I can’t wait to chat with you all again…next time with a glass of wine!

(Iron Clad Security #1)
by Sidney Halston
Kindle Edition, 1st edition, 446 pages
Published March 28th 2017 by Swerve
Five years ago they fell in love after one whirlwind summer. Now she's an internationally famous musician and he's officially out of the military, but when their worlds collide, can they keep things strictly professional? Sweet, thrilling, emotional, and sexy, fall in love with Megan and Jax in USA Today bestseller Sidney Halston's Kiss Marry Kill.

He's been chasing a memory . . .

It was just supposed to be a regular Thursday afternoon…and then he saw her. Sitting in seat L214, one seat over from his at the baseball game, right next to her douche of a soon-to-be-ex-boyfriend. An impromptu kiss for the kiss cam, and Jax knew his life would never be the same. Five years and a tour in Afghanistan later, Jax is back stateside running his own private security firm, Iron-Clad, with his best friend. He isn't the man he used to be... but Megan isn't the sexy and sweet, though sheltered, twenty-two-year-old he left behind, either. And she's in trouble.

...but now they're on the run.

Megan Cruz has made something of herself. She’s turned her dreams of pop stardom into a reality. But when a deadly stalker breaks into her home claiming to be her number-one fan, the only person she can turn to is the boy who got away. But Jax isn’t the same carefree charmer who stole her heart, then broke it when he joined the military. This man is seductive, hard, guarded. And he'll do anything to protect what's his.

Author Bio
Sidney Halston
USA Today bestselling author Sidney Halston lives her life by one simple rule: "Just Do It" - Nike. And that's exactly what she did. After working hard as an attorney, Sidney picked up a pen for the first time at thirty years old to begin her dream of writing. Having never written anything other than very exciting legal briefs, she found an outlet for her imaginative, romantic side and wrote Seeing Red. That first pen stroke sealed the deal, and she fell in love with writing. Sidney lives in South Florida with her husband and children. She loves her family above all else, and reading follows a close second. When she's not writing, you can find her reading and reading and reading. She's a reader first and a writer second. When she's not writing or reading, her life is complete and utter chaos, trying to balance family life with work and writing (and reading). But she wouldn't have it any other way.
