Meet Nitro! A green-eyed Kelpie. And the real-life embodiment of my fictional Kelpie, Jack. Isn't he adorable? I've already warned his owners that if he goes missing, they'd be best to look at my house first. :P
Nitro isn't the spitting image of my Jack. Whilst he is a brown and tan Kelpie, Jack was black and tan. But I couldn't get past those eyes! I had to share my findings with the fans of What Happens in Ireland.
And I also want to share an excerpt where Jack the Kelpie plays a part:
Resting her forehead on her knees, Kate fought to regain her composure. It wasn’t until she felt something wet against her toe that she looked up.
Crouched at her feet was a black and tan kelpie pup, its startling green eyes trained on her expectantly. Reaching out a hand, Kate scratched the dog behind its velvety ear, a sad smile forcing the corners of her lips up. The pup leaned into her touch, its tongue flopping out, the brush of his breath warm against her skin.
She hadn’t intended to buy the pup. It sort of just happened.
The second she’d seen the green-eyed pup looking up at her from amongst the litter, her chest had swelled. It hadn’t taken her long to realize she wasn’t leaving the house without it.
And so she’d bought ‘Jack’.
She didn’t know what had possessed her to call the frisky pup ‘Jack’. It wasn’t like she needed a reminder of the man. But, she had. Maybe it’d been the pup’s playful nature. Or perhaps its vivid green eyes. She didn’t know and didn’t care.
"Well, I hope my readers have enjoyed my little snippet and my tale. :) Happy reading!

It's mind-blowing isn't it! It's like someone else wrote it when you return to a work after so long.
Thanks so much, Harper for joining me today. Hope you've enjoyed our chat and find the landscape of Ireland inspiring. :) Best of luck with your novel. I can't wait to read it!
Now about the novel!
The simple task proves to be more complicated than it seems. Haven is disobedient, ungrateful, and hostile, yet she is beautiful and mystifying at the same time. One night, when Avrum stumbles across Haven barely clothed and bound at the wrists, the world he has trusted in unravels before his eyes. He soon discovers that no one—from Lord Henri and Haven to his closest friend, Lysander--are who they seem to be.
Now faced with the truth, will Avrum choose to surrender to the man who rescued him, or will he have the courage to save the woman who captivated him?

Now admitted, my Jack isn't only a silver-tongued devil, but easy on the eyes too. But either way, today, I'm focusing on his legendary Irish charm and hope I might be able to give those who haven't met him already, a little taste of Mr. Tall-Dark-and-Handsome.
Now, to meet my Irish devil.
- What your hero’s name and where does he come from?
Jack O'Reilly. Also known as 'Irish', 'Oh God' and 'Mr. Tall-Dark-and-Handsome'. Jack lives in Killarney, Ireland.
- What’s your charming hero’s profession?
Jack is a horse breeder. Him and his brother breed some of Ireland's finest thoroughbreds.
- Now, there’s a lot about our heroes that sets all women in a flutter. What’s your hero’s greatest weapon when it comes to seduction?
Personally, I think it's his Irish charm. Jack simply has a way with women. A charismatic eloquence that can even get past a shrews iron façade.
- If your hero resembled one or more celebrities, who would they be?
Hmm, I'm going to say a cross between Colin Farrell and Ryan Gosling (who is our eye-candy on the blog hop banner hehe).
- Apart from being incredible charming, how would you describe your hero’s personality?
Jack dedicated. He's family orientated. Over-all laid back. And when he is met with a challenge, he meets it head on. Or in the case of the challenge of winning Kate's heart, shirtless hehe.
- Does your hero have a favourite saying or motto?
Hmm, if Jack had one, it would definitely be: "It's better to be a fool in love, than a fool who let a woman go."
- Post a scene of ten lines or less that captures your hero using his charm to win over both our readers and heroine.
So there you have it! My charming Irishman. :) I hope you've enjoyed meeting Jack and I do recommend you check out his romance buddies on the blog hop.
And on another note, if you're eager to learn more about Jack O'Reilly, What Happens in Ireland is on sale this weekend for $3.99. Lets see if you can resist the charms of an Irishman :) Just click on the picture below!
So first things first, when did you first start writing, Tamsin? Was it just an unbridled urge to write or had it been a matter of ‘it’s now or never’?
I wrote on and off for years, but my unquenchable need only took off about 10 months ago. For me, it makes me happy, and I don’t want to ever do without it again.
I write because it keeps me sane and it makes me happy. My favourite part? Hmmm the ability to create amazing people and enjoy them so much.
(It's awesome creating the people you've always wanted to meet, isn't it? :) And I agree on your reasoning. Writing = Sanity :p)
I just like people, and love to create relationships. Other authors are inspiring, but I don’t read a whole lot. I want to write, constantly.
(It's a hard battle between the desire to read and the need to write.)
When did your writing dream become a published reality?
My first erotic romance was published in April 2013 J Truth be told, a m/m published by Evernight Publishing.
Finding a publisher that is trust worthy I suppose. But my writing friends have helped me with that so much.
(It's so important to find a publisher you can have a partnership with.)
If you love it as much as I do, then you will achieve whatever goal you set for yourself. Aim high, it’s the only way.
Two tiger shifter’s destined to be, and her wolf boyfriend.
(Ooo, I love shifters.)
Probably Tommy, the wolf shifter. He’s just adorable. He’s Natalia’s boyfriend and he knows that Jeremy is Natalia’s destined-to-be-mate, and he has the courage to love them both.
(He must be very special to respect such a bond. And a complication.)
Well, I’m currently working on another m/m, which will be released in about 6 weeks, which is beyond cool. I got a contract/release date before the book was finished. Then I have the sequel to Fighting Destiny coming out in September.
(How exciting! Best of luck!)
Are you reading a novel right now?
Yes, an awesome m/m called Aftermath: Guts and Glory. By Tyler Robbins.
Warning to women readers: I have been warned that this story causes you to both cry and slide off your seat.
(Did you hear that ladies? Get your tissues ready!)
Baileys and milk and chocolate!
(I love baileys! Especially in my coffee hehe)
Happily Ever After writer- 100%!
(I do love a HEA :) )
Thank you so much Tamsin for joining me on the blog today. Might crack open a bottle of Baileys right now!
