Author Carrie Ann Ryan Guest Post

Carrie Ann Ryan is here today with her characters from her new book Dust of My Wings. Welcome everyone!

Hi y’all! I’m Carrie Ann Ryan and I’m super excited to be here today with my characters, Lily and Shade. They’re from my latest release, Dust of My Wings. This is a new book in a new series for me!! Yep, I’m writing about angels this time. *grins* Let’s get started!
Carrie Ann: *sits in a plush arm chair across from the duo currently snuggling in the love seat* Hey, guys. I’m soo happy to see you again.
Shade: *lifts his head from Lily’s neck* It's good to see you again, Carrie Ann.
Lily: *blushes* Oh yes, thank you so much for having us here today.
Carrie Ann: Okay then, let's get started. Lily, what did you do when you found out the supernaturals were real?
Lily: Dear Lord, I was a crazy lunatic. Don’t you remember, Shade?
Shade: Grins, oh yeah, I remember, you were naked at the time.
Lily: *hits Shade in the shoulder* Really? You’re going to bring that up now?
Carrie Ann: I think I might've freaked out as well. No wait, I think I did freak out.
Lily: See? I'm not the only one.
Shade: Yeah, but I think the naked part helped.
Carrie Ann: And that's enough of that. I love how you guys interact with each other, was it always this easy?
Lily: Oh God no. When I first met him I don't think my tongue could work.
Shade: It works well now.
Lily: *turns a deep red and punches Shade in the shoulder* Really? I can't believe he just said that.
Shade: Apparently my mind is only on one thing.
Carrie Ann: I'm sure the ladies love that.
Lily: Hey! There better not be any other ladies loving that, he's mine.
Carrie Ann: I should've said Lily loves that. Sorry. *rolls her eyes*
Shade: But anyway, back to your question, it was a bit different when we met. I had to be secretive because she held my dust and that was something I needed to protect my brethren. But over time I think we got passed insecurities on both our parts.
Carrie Ann: I'm glad you did. Okay what can you tell us about the future.
Lily: Oh, I think you know more about that than we do.
Carrie Ann: *winks* very well, but why don’t you tell me what you two are planning on doing. I can figure out the others on my own.
Shade: Right now were taking it one day at a time, and getting to know each other even more.
Lily: *leans into his side* And I'm enjoying every bit of it.
Carrie Ann: Okay, now for the fun questions. Boxers or briefs?
Shade: None.
Lily: *blushes* I can attest to that.
Carrie Ann: *blushes right alongside Lily and clears her throat* What’s your favorite type of ice cream?
Shade: Strawberry, because it reminds me the taste of Lily skin.
Carrie Ann: Is it getting hot in here?
Lily: Chocolate is mine, because the decadent taste reminds me of Shade.
Carrie Ann: *shifts on her seat as the other two stare at each other* Okay, I may have to call this interview over because you two are obviously not paying attention to me.
Carrie Ann: On that note, I'm going to let the angel and his love swoon over each other while I answer some questions. And, if I can get their attention, I'm sure you can ask him some questions as well. Thank you so much for coming today.

Dust of My Wings Blurb

            Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?
Neat freak lab tech, Lily Banner lives her life as any ordinary human. She’s dedicated to her work and loves to hang out with her friends at Dante’s Circle, their local bar. When she discovers a strange blue dust at work she meets a handsome stranger holding secrets – and maybe her heart. But after a close call with a thunderstorm, she may not be as ordinary as she thinks.
Shade Griffin is a warrior angel sent to Earth to protect the supernaturals’ secrets. One problem, he can’t stop leaving dust in odd places around town. Now he has to find every ounce of his dust and keep the presence of the supernatural a secret. But after a close encounter with a sexy lab tech and a lightning quick connection, his millennia old loyalties may shift and he could lose more than just his wings in the chaos.

Dust of My Wings Excerpt

“Hi.” Shade smiled and tilted his head.
“Hi,” she breathed.
“You look beautiful, Lily.” He tucked a stray hair behind her ear and she shivered.
“You do too.” She blushed again. Soon she’d be Crayola red. “I mean you look handsome.”
He traced her jaw with a calloused finger. “Thank you. Are you ready to go?”
She swallowed hard. “Uh huh.”
Okay, she really had to remember the English language. This was getting embarrassing.
“Okay then.” He trailed his hand down her arm and wrapped his palm around hers. His warm skin felt like heaven against hers.
She shook her head, clearing her thoughts. How was she supposed to get through a whole date if she couldn’t even formulate thoughts to get out of the door?
With a nod, she gripped his hand tighter and closed the door behind her. He led her to his bike and she smiled.
“I love it, Shade.”
He gave a huge grin. “Thanks. This is my baby. No matter where I am, I try and take her with me.” He rubbed the leather seat and an irrational urge to knock the bike down went through her.
She would not be jealous of a motorcycle. Would not.Dust of My Wings Amazon | Barnes&Noble | ARe

Love Lily and Shade! I was wondering where Lily and Shade live now. Do they live in her appartment or at his place? I'm sure she wants to be close to her friends.
