Please welcome Reece Bennu to the virtual offices this morning.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in five words or less.
[Reece Bennu] I want to be normal.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share a typical day in the life of Reece Bennu?
[Reece Bennu] I do a lot of charity work, above and beyond giving away my family’s money. I go into the city often and work at a soup kitchen and a food bank. When I’m not doing that, I’m ashamed to say I kill a lot of time. When you live as long as I have, a day means a lot less, even though it shouldn’t.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words come to mind when you think of Ambrosia?
[Reece Bennu] Driven, feisty, and dedicated.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you find most exasperating about her?
[Reece Bennu] She’s a journalist, so she’s dedicated to truth and facts. I’m used to secrecy. Dealing with that side of her can be exasperating, but she has helped me think differently about some things, as I have influence her.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you could change one thing you’ve done in your life, what would it be?
[Reece Bennu] I would have appreciated that time can be short even for us—when my parents were still alive.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s one thing you won’t leave home without?
[Reece Bennu] Candied ginger.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] How do you relax after a hard day preparing for fatherhood?
[Reece Bennu] Just having Ambrosia in the house relaxes me in ways I never thought possible.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share your dreams for the future in five words or less.
[Reece Bennu] As long as possible.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Thank you!
About the book:
Release Date: 12/30/13
Genre: Ghosts, Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Entangled Covet
Tagline: Accidents happen for a reason
Journalist Ambrosia Pellerin accepts an assignment involving the legendary phoenix, expecting, if nothing else, a little entertainment. Instead, she winds up pregnant—by a surprisingly human-looking firebird, Reece Bennu.
As the Phoenix prince, Reece is next in line to the throne and expected to marry a purebred royal. A common human such as Ambrosia is not in the cards. He swears, though, he’ll never be an absentee father.
As Ambrosia’s due date grows closer, so do the soon-to-be parents. But will their tentative love survive the prejudice of Reece’s grandmother, who will stop at nothing to tear the two a part?
