Seduced in Spain by Devika Fernando
Hi, Emily, welcome to my blog and thank you for this interview.
First impressions count so what are you wearing? What do you look like?
I love wearing dresses. Today’s dress is one of my favourites: It’s a black dress, knee-length with sleeves to my elbows. I love the collar because it has red and white embroidery that reminds me of traditional artwork. I’ve combined it with espadrilles. I consider myself pretty tall, slim with some feminine curves, warm brown eyes and brown hair that’s neither long nor short.
Are you a girly girl or a tomboy?
That’s tougher to answer that it sounds. I love some girly things, like nice fashion, cute animals, romance novels, and chocolate… And I certainly go all girly and gushy when it comes to my handsome Spanish lover Alejandro. But I guess some would consider me a bit of a tomboy too. I don’t like asking for help or depending on others, and I’ve also grown more confident in the past nine years.
What do you do for a living? Do you like it?
I’m a personal assistant to a famous hotelier, and I think it’s the perfect job for me. I love interacting with people from all over the world and focusing on tourism and various countries. And I’d never have met my true love if I hadn’t been in the tourism trade.
Tell us your story.
You shouldn’t have said that, now I’ll sit here talking for hours and bore you to hell. *laughs* Seriously though, it’s not easily summarized. I’m from Germany, and I wouldn’t say I’m close to my family. I met Alejandro for the first time nine years ago when I visited Spain, and we were instantly attracted to each other. But then something went horribly wrong. Now I realize it was all a huge misunderstanding…but I can’t reveal more about that, or I’ll spoil things for you. Let me just tell you that a lot of things about my life are about to change now, for better or for worse.
Describe your Hero. Is he a Darcy or a Christian Grey?
Definitely a Darcy. And by the way, I LOVE “Pride & Prejudice”! Alejandro is incredibly tall and handsome with his black hair and emerald green eyes. He’s just the right mix of muscles and intelligence / brawn and brain. He can get a bit alpha-male when he really wants something, but he’s also caring and kind and a Latin lover who really knows what a woman wants. Sorry, am I swooning too much?
Just between us, what do you like best about your Hero?
Is it awfully superficial of me if I say his eyes? They are just so beautiful and incredibly expressive. Just kidding… I love it that he’s not afraid to be emotional. In a world where men think they have to be all cool and hard and demanding, he prefers a more quiet strength and confidence. He makes me feel safe and loved like I’ve never felt before.
Do you prefer the bedroom door open or closed?
Sometimes open, sometimes closed. I have to say being with Alejandro has made me shed some inhibitions…
What TV shows best describe your relationship with the hero—Scandal or Downtown Abbey?
Don’t kill me, but I’ve watched neither. I guess all others would say “Scandal” because my choices seem to upset quite a few people.
If your story is made into a movie, what actress do you want to play you?
I can’t choose just one, there are so many choices… Perhaps Alicia Vikander, Emma Stone or Jessica Chastain.
Tell us about your author.
She’s super busy at the moment with her latest two books, trying her hand at rural romance and royal romance. I’d describe her as an author who really injects some love and depth into her contemporary and paranormal romance novels instead of letting lust dominate. She loves writing multicultural romance novels, which is how a German ended up falling in love with a Spaniard in SEDUCED IN SPAIN and how an Irishman fell for a Sri Lankan in SAVED IN SRI LANKA.
That was a lovely interview, Emily. Hope you liked being Seduced in Spain. :)
