Let’s welcome Hank Taggart, hero of Out of Sight by Melissa Klein. Let’s get to know more about this awesome man! I mean, there has to be a reason Mia loves him, right?
Welcome, Hank. (does my best to stop squealing in excitement…and the drooling…and…) Uh…excuse the messy piles of paper on the desk. Authors, you know. Anyway, please tell us something about yourself.
I really hate talking about myself. Now, my Mia, she’s someone worth spending a word or two on. But, if you have to know about me, the most important things are that I was a throw-away kid, just like Mia. I grew up in foster care. The navy and Mia have been my family and my salvation. I recently learned I have two step-brothers and I’m slowly getting to know them. My navy buddies, Titan, Opie, and Bash are the best mates a guy could hope for. Thank God they helped me see how much I need Mia and that my “issues” don’t need to keep me from her.
Why did you become a navy pilot?
Doesn’t everyone want to fly? The thrill of being catapulted off the deck and the challenged of landing are bigger thrills than anything I’ve ever experienced—except for making love to Mia, of course.
At what age did you first meet Mia? What did you think of her then?
I was four years old when newborn Mia was brought to the Gilbert’s foster home. She was pink, wrinkled, and screaming her head off. My first thought was, “she’s pissed off at the world, just like me.”
What is your first meeting with Mia like, years later?
Mia and I have always kept in touch through email, letters, and visits when I’m on leave. Following her accident and my discharge, we really started spending more time together while she recovered at the hospital. Her tenacity and determination blew me away. She’s the most stubborn, brave, and beautiful woman I’ve ever known.
Did it shock you when you discovered you have un-brotherly feelings toward Mia? What did you do to suppress these feelings?
Those un-brotherly feelings shocked the hell out of me, and I had no intention of acting on them at first. I fought the attraction. Man, I really tried. She was engaged to Tripp the Fucker, after all. She’d suffered a traumatic brain injury and I…well…I have my issues. What could I possibly do for her other than be another burden? She saw through all the barriers I threw up, called me on my shit. How can a guy not love a woman as brave as Mia?
There you have it! Such a swoon-worthy hero. Excuse me while I go to Amazon and buy this book!
