Author M. Leighton Answers My Five Burning Questions & more….

We all are suckers for our heroines or heroes who have to over come something life changing to be together. This is one of those magical, sweet and steamy romances that you will devour in one sitting. No matter how bad you have to go pee, you’ll take your kindle with you. Don’t deny it we all all do it.

Levi is a blue-eyed businessman visiting Louisiana when he meets a blind artist, Evie at her art show. There’s baggage in each of their history and you think you understand their struggles but there’s more to it than meets the eye.

Trust me after you’ve read Levi’s Blue you’ll want to check out her other books.

Thank you to M. for taking the time to answer my five burning questions.  Here answer will make you laugh and tear up a little bit just like her books.  This one really rocks!


Here’s the questions.

1. Let’s start off with Kill, Marry or Screw? Gideon Cross, Kellan Kyle or Levi?  

OMG! Could this question be ANY harder??  Okay, I wouldn’t kill any of them. I know that for sure. I think I’d marry Levi or Kellan and screw Gideon. And hope Levi and Kellan didn’t know about each other. Or Gideon.  And that I don’t get arrested:D  LMAO 

2. Do you remember the first romance book you ever read?  Can you tell me about it?  EDITOR: I think mine was Bitch by Jackie Collins and I was about 10 or 11.

Honestly, I don’t remember the exact first one, or what age I was, but I can tell you the first one that stuck with me.  I “borrowed” it from my mother, and it was called The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss.  It’s historical, so that tells you a lot about it right there.  The heroine was pure and proper, but feisty and strong, too.  The hero was broken and made me swoon, and I may have compared boys to him for a very long time. Holy smokes, I think I was in love with Wulfgar for the better part of my teens and twenties:) LOL  That book has everything a good romance should include, right down to the bodice-ripping.  

Mleighton23. What type of stories would you like to write but haven’t yet? Menage, BDSM or a sexless romance. The sexless romance should come with a warning. Don’t you think?

I guess I’d have to say menage since I’ve touched on the others. I also have a burning desire to write an intricate mystery thriller.  Like REALLY intricate.  Brilliant.  And maybe one day I will.  *crosses fingers*  As for the warnings on sexless romance, for me, I don’t need a warning.  I’m old enough to remember when MOST romances were sexless.  I think romance is all about the heart and the heat, not necessarily the kink:) 

mleighton4. You’ve written series before how do you trackeveryone’s back story?

I keep notes.  Not very organized ones, but I DO keep track of important character details.  God forbid I ever have to go back a long way, though.  I feel sure they’re not detailed enough to pick up and run with after a certain amount of time has passed. hehe  I’d probably have to re-read the books.  Or ask my readers. I’ve noticed that many of them have an amazing retention of those types of details.  It’s incredible and incredibly humbling:)

5. If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone to it, who would it be?  Celebrities, book boyfriends, intellectuals or anyone.  Name five people. 

You didn’t say dead or alive, so I’m assuming they must be alive and not decaying around the dinner table:)  LOL

damonCash and Olivia Davenport.  They’re special characters to me anyway, but I’d love to meet them in person. Together.  I think their love, their relationship would be quite something to behold in real life.

Ian Somerhalder, but only if I weren’t married. And he wasn’t too inclined to press charges, because there would be some serious groping going on.  hehe

Ben Affleck, but only so I could kick him in the balls.

Miley Cyrus, but only so I could kick her in the balls, too.  *snort*

If my list can include dead people, that changes everything!  Just for kicks and giggles, here’s my list for that:

Jesus.  Because…Jesus.

Edgar Allen Poe. Because…brilliant.


Elvis. Because…He’s Elvis.  Those eyes, that face, those hips, that voice!  But if he couldn’t make it, I’d ask for Frank Sinatra:)

But I’d trade almost every single one of them for one more dinner with my dad.

6. For bonus points, what’s your favorite swear word?

Turd.  I don’t swear in real life:)
