Please welcome special guest Nick Andreakos, hero of Maya Blake’s Hostage To Love, to the virtual offices this morning!
[Manga Maniac Café] So, Nick, your story is out there in the world now and anyone who hasn’t read it will be wondering from the blurb just what was going on with you and Belle that led to such a mess at the start of the book.
[Nick Andreakos] Yeah, things were messed up weren’t they? I admit freely, I took my eye off the ball on that one. But in my defence, I was pretty cut up when Belle walked away from me six months into our marriage. I believed we had a great thing going on, but I guess I was wrong.
[Manga Maniac Café] You guess? You mean you didn’t know what was going on in your own marriage?
[Nick Andreakos] *winces* Look, I’m holding my hands up right now and saying, no I didn’t. I thought what we had was solid but then I realized we had a lot of disagreements before she walked out and I had been keeping stuff bottled inside and festering that needed to be aired. But I wasn’t counting on her being kidnapped by some psycho before I got the chance to put things right.
[Manga Maniac Café] Yes, let’s talk about that. What happened in Nawaka, Africa to make this madman so fixated on Belle?
[Nick Andreakos] What happens when every man sees my Belle. She’s has a kind, generous heart and she’s the strongest, most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen. But she’s mine and I’d lay down my life before I let any harm come to her.
[Manga Maniac Café] So what happens now? We’re here on Althea, your private Greek island, a breathtaking paradise. Have you found your own personal paradise with Belle yet?
[Nick Andreakos] Not quite yet. I’ve got her back to Althea, but Charles Mwana is still out there. He needs to be stopped before he dares to harm another hair on Belle’s head. I won’t rest until I put him away for good.
[Manga Maniac Café] It’s been a while since you hung up your Marine uniform. You think you’re equipped to take on a rebel leader with a small army?
[Nick Andreakos] If you read the news, you’ll know what I did to his so-called army when I rescued Belle from Nawaka. I’m hoping his learnt his lesson the first time we clashed. If he didn’t, if he’s crazy enough to try again, I say, “bring it”.
[Manga Maniac Café] Well, our readers wish you the very best of luck. And a happy ending.
[Nick Andreakos] You can count on it. My Belle deserves nothing less!
[Manga Maniac Café] Thanks for stopping by!
