Would The Real Howie Watt Please Stand Up! - Broken Angel by Amanda Jones

Anyone who’s read the ARC version of Broken Angel has met our new friend, Chief of Surgery Howard (Howie) Watt.  What you don’t know is he’s very real (the Howie part, not the surgeon part), and a very dear friend of mine.  So, I figure I’ll take this opportunity to introduce you all to my favourite Howie shaped human!Now he’s agreed to let me use my discretion in selecting a photo from his Facebook page to share in this blog posting – with a few restrictions: not the one where he’s wearing moose antlers, not the one where someone photoshopped a top hat and cane on him, and not the one with him photoshopped as Spiderman…but aside from that I had free license! Like his character in Broken Angel, Howie’s got that infectiously fun personality that draws people in.  He’s always there for his friends (oftentimes going waaaay above and beyond for them), and is my go-to person for sharing dirty jokes.  

The heroes of our book can’t help but have a soft spot for the guy too!  He recently celebrated a birthday, and wasn’t afraid to put on a bumblebee hat (with feelers), play with Nerf bow and arrows, and crawl through obstacle courses a la (Catherine Zeta Jones in the laser field in Entrapment) with his employees.  

His birthday cake may have featured images of his head photoshopped onto the bodies of a variety of gentlemen in sparkly budgie smugglers…which he found hilarious!

So let’s raise a glass to the REAL Howie Watt!  Thank you for supporting me through my writing journey.  

PS. Please do me a favour and stalk him on Twitter – it’ll be fun!  @howie_watt   happy hunting!!!

Will the beautiful surgeon who saved his life also be able to redeem him, or will Bataryal’s damaged soul lead them both into the depths of Hell…

Excerpt 1

Before she could react, B sat up and grabbed her with his freshly set hand, drawing her face towards his.  He felt his heart leap as their lips touched ever so gently at first.  He’d dreamed of kissing her since the first time he’d laid eyes on her, and could only hope that the feelings she’d admitted to were true.  Her lips moved softly upon his, her tongue darting out to lick along the line of his lips.  B opened his mouth and let her in, their tongues sliding together sensually as his body came to life.  It was a feeling he thought he’d never fully experience, the blood pounding in his veins, his heart jumping in his chest.  Mara’s arms came up to circle him, one around his back, the other sliding up his neck, her nails raking along his scalp near the nape of his neck.  The tiny shivers from her sharp little nails were more erotic than any sexual experience he’d ever had.  B’s heart felt like it was soaring free.  Maybe there really could be a happy ending for him.

As Katia smiled back at Sergei, she noticed that the stranger at the neighbouring table was watching her again.  She did a half turn and reached down as though she were looking for something in her purse, angling herself towards him.  Taking a deep breath, she looked up and found her eyes locked on his.  There was something riveting about him, but she couldn’t put her finger on exactly what it was.  Perhaps it was the sum total of everything that made her unable to tear her eyes away.  He looked like he had been carved from a piece of marble.  His skin was pale and perfect, not a single freckle, scar, line, or wrinkle.  Calvin Klein models had nothing on this guy, with his defined jaw, and full lips that were just begging for a kiss.  His hair was a tumbling mass of waves the colour of the sun, his eyes were the most unusual grey Katia had ever seen, like storm clouds.  He also had the longest eyelashes she’d ever seen; women paid good money to get lashes like that.  He truly had the face of an angel, like something you’d see on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.  At odds with his angelic look was the black leather motorcycle jacket, black jeans, and black combat boots.  There was also something off in his expression, something hard about the way he was looking at her, like she had somehow ruined his day without her knowledge.
