Different Kind of Knight--Mary Waibel--Blog Tour

Today, I have the pleasure of hosting my good friend, business partner, and critique partner, Mary Waibel, as she introduces her latest novel, Different Kind of Knight. I critiqued this book before she even submitted it for publication, and I feel in love with her character Brody.  She's here to do an interview with him! WOOT!!  Get ready to get your swoon on!!  ;)  Be sure to check out the Rafflecopter as well as Mary's special offer!!
Through a twist of fate, Princess Gabrielle became First Knight of the King’s Elite Guard, a position always held by the second born male. She's spent years proving to the Minsters of Faldaera she is capable of leading the king’s Army.

When mythical creatures plague her kingdom, Rielle is sent to capture Captain Brody, the alleged culprit behind the attacks and the man who broke her heart four years ago.

Brody, Crown Prince of Delphine, is living in self-imposed exile, atoning for the sins of his father. But Fate has different plans for him. Tired, beaten down, and ready to give up on life, he is tossed into the path of the one person he would do anything for―Princess Gabrielle.

With a traitor in her ranks, and a mark on her head, Brody joins forces with Rielle, hoping to keep the woman he loves safe. Happily-ever-after is not guaranteed, and mythical creatures aren’t the only danger the couple face. As battles rage, Rielle has the chance to prove herself a capable leader, but will doing so cost her the love of her life?

I sat in the rose garden, enjoying the fresh morning air, watching Prince Brody as he walked out of the castle and headed toward me for our meeting. His brown hair, streaked with blond, hung loose to his shoulders, and his beard was neatly braided in twin braids that hung about an inch below his chin. He took a seat across from me, and I found myself gazing into eyes that looked like chocolate dipped in honey.

Brody: Good morning.

Me: Oh. Good morning, Your Highness. (flushes at being caught staring)

Brody: It's my pleasure, and please, call me Brody or Captain.

Me: (arches brow) That seems a bit informal, I mean, you are the Crown Prince of Delphine.

Brody: (laughs) True, I am, but deep down, I'm just a simple man. You can leave the lofty titles for Devlin and Trevor.

Me: Well, then, Brody it is.

Brody: How have you been enjoying your stay here at Wyvern Castle?

Me: (sighs and smiles) It's been a dream vacation. Everyone is so nice and friendly. And the grounds are absolutely fabulous.

Brody: If you think these are great, you should come visit Delphine. You'd love it there. It's always warm, and the flowers are incredible.

Me: Thanks, I'd love to come visit, preferably during the cold part of winter. So, how long are you staying here?

Brody: I'll be leaving soon. Rielle and I have things we need to get back to.

Me: I imagine you have a lot of things to work on, especially after all that's happened. The last year's been pretty rough for you, hasn't it?

Brody: That's an understatement. I thought learning my betrothed and cousin were killed was bad, but learning my father was responsible was the straw that sent me over the edge. For a while, I considered giving up everything, even my right to be Crown Prince.

Me: What happened to make you change your mind?

Brody: A girl from my past fell at my feet. Literally.(grins)

Me: Ah. Princess Gabrielle.

Brody: Yes. Rielle. Without her, I'd probably still be wandering the countryside slaying dragons, both real and imaginary.

Me: Don't let Princess Kaylee hear you. She's pretty close with a dragon!

Brody: (nods) Yes, she is. However, she knows I only fight to protect others, just like I did with Rielle.

Me: Speaking of Rielle. What do you think about her being head of the King's Guard?

Brody: She is the perfect choice for First Knight, not only because the title should be hers rightfully by birth, but because she is an excellent leader.

Me: Seems there were others in her kingdom that didn't quite agree with you.

Brody: (smiles, eyes glinting) Yes, there were, and they won't be a problem anymore.

Me: I see. Care to share what happened?

Brody: You can read all about it, as well as how Rielle and I met for the second time, in DIFFERENT KIND OF KNIGHT.

Me: A love story with hints of danger. How exciting. Where can we find it?

Brody: DIFFERENT KIND OF KNIGHT is available from MuseItUp Publishing, Amazon, and most major retailers. I heard the MuseItUp is running a special until Febrary 14th, where if you purchase DIFFERENT KIND OF KNIGHT you can receive QUEST OF THE HART or CHARMED MEMOIRES for free.

Me: Wow! That sounds like a great deal. I'll have to check that out! Before you go, would you mind a few rapid fire questions?

Brody: Go ahead.

Me: Coffee or tea?

Brody: Ale. It keeps better aboard ship.

Me: Favorite season?

Brody: Summer. Best time for sailing.

Me: Favorite color?

Brody: Amber, just like Rielle's eyes.

Me: Beach or mountains?

Brody: Sea. Sorry, I'm being a bit of a rule breaker here.

Me: (chuckles) Nah, you're just being truthful. Thank you again, and safe travels!

Your prince interviews rock, Mary. The last one already enticed me to buy the books, and this one is tempting me to read Quest of the Hart and Charmed Memories, though I promised myself I wouldn't download them till after I'm done with my blog tour!

Loren- Yay!! Glad to know they're working well. I totally understand the predicament you're in. My TBR pile is growing so much faster than I can keep up. I'm going to need a book binge here soon!!
