Meet Author Mia Hoddell

I'm Mia Hoddell, author of the #1 Amazon bestselling series Seasons of ChangeElemental Killers, and False Finder. Today I thought I'd interview two of my characters from my contemporary romance Spring Knight, tell you a little about my books, and put them on sale so you can all grab a bargain.

A big thank you to Apryl for organising this blogfest again!

I hope you enjoy my stop.


Meet the Characters

Mia: Hi everyone, today I have with me Kayleigh and Aiden from my fourth standalone novella, Spring Knight. They’ve kindly allowed me to interview them for you.

Aiden: Hi everyone, great to be here!

Kayleigh: Hello.

Mia: So, Kayleigh, it’s safe to say your relationship had an unusual start. What did you think when he first showed up in your drama rehearsal?

Kayleigh: Um … I think I was a little more worried by the fact I was about to jump off a platform really. It did cross my mind why he was there, but most of my attention was on not breaking my neck.

 Aiden: She scared the hell out of me, that’s for sure.

Kayleigh: When I finally found out the reason, though, I thought it was a wind up. He’s not the type to audition for the university’s production.

Mia: No, he definitely isn’t. Were you surprised when he noticed you?

Kayleigh: Of course. I mean I’m not someone people notice very often. I don’t like being the centre of attention unless I’m on stage, and he’s a big name on campus. It made me feel uneasy.

Aiden: [puts his arm around her shoulders and pulls her against him] She made me work for her, which was a first. I’ve never had someone say no to me, but she’s worth all of the effort and more.

Mia: Well now you’ve brought it up, what was that like? And how long did you know that Kayleigh was the one for you?

Aiden: I can’t reveal everything, can I? That would ruin my reputation. I think a guy’s entitled to some secrets.

Mia: Okay, I guess the readers will just have to pick up your book to find out. My next question is, what was it like being in the show?

Aiden: Terrifying. I’m not usually one to admit when I’m scared, but being on that stage—just the thought even—made me want to puke. It did give me a newfound respect for Kay. I honestly don’t know how she does it.

Kayleigh: It’s not that bad. And anyway, it serves you right for not being able to turn down a challenge. He did great, though; you wouldn’t have known it was his first time.

Aiden: And last.

Mia: You can’t see yourself ever up there again, Aiden?

Aiden: Hell no, not if I have anything to do with it! I’ll support Kay in the audience from now on.

Kayleigh: [looking at him with a devilish smile] What if I bet you two hundred pounds you can’t do it again?

Mia: Are you sure you know what you’re doing, Kayleigh?

Aiden: I’d listen to her if I were you. You know I don’t turn down money, and you know I always win.

Kayleigh: Prove it then. I bet you two hundred pounds that you won’t perform in the next university production.

Aiden: You’re on, but you’re going to lose.

Kayleigh: Really? I control who gets cast. [she laughs at his shocked expression as he tries to respond]

Mia: I think she’s beaten you there, Aiden.

Aiden: Yeah, she probably has, but I have my ways of convincing her to do things. [turns to Kayleigh] Remember what happened last time you tried to trick me?

Kayleigh: You don’t scare me anymore, Aiden. I know all of your
weaknesses. [he moves to kiss her]

Kayleigh: You don’t scare me anymore, Aiden. I know all of your weaknesses. [he moves to kiss her]

Mia: Okay, I think that’s all we’ve got time for guys. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you let him perform, Kayleigh. I’d love to see him play a fairy godmother.

 Kayleigh: [laughing] That’s a brilliant idea!

Aiden: Thanks, Mia … really … just thanks … [groans]

Mia: No problem, Aiden. I’m always happy to help out. Good luck!

Jenna Shaw ran away to escape her past. In fact, she jumped on a plane and flew to Portugal to try and forget it. However, it turns out leaving everything behind isn’t as easy as it sounds.

She thought she could move on and break free of her fears—that if she had some space the pain would stop. But as memories resurface due to an ill-timed joke, the past crashes into her present once more and she didn’t see it coming.

Jenna’s plans for normality are derailed by the charismatic Ethan Brooks. She sees him as an annoyance; he sees her as a challenge. But as he tries every trick known to him to impress her, they only serve to push her further away. He’s never faced this problem before and Ethan has to work harder than he ever has if he wants to win over and help his mysterious girl.

She was on holiday. He was tricked into returning.
Neither of them wanted to be there, but neither could avoid it.

Amy wants to be back under the sun in Portugal. However, when her suggestion is overruled in favour of a skiing holiday, even she can’t turn it down. What she couldn’t have predicted is that the holiday could make her break the one, and only, rule she has: not to get into a serious relationship again.

When Amy first sees Luke, she knows something is wrong. He’s struggling to cope with everything and her need to help people makes him the perfect distraction from the cold. He hasn’t been to the Alps in five years and he swore to never ski again. But as his defences are broken by Amy’s persistence, the winter paradise begins to reawaken his desires.

However, with constant flashbacks triggering his anxiety, he’s torn, battling conflicting emotions as he becomes increasingly captivated by Amy. She has a rule though. She didn’t go on holiday to fall for someone and the last thing she needs is to ignore her own advice. Whether or not she can move past her insecurities will depend on whether Luke can face his biggest fear.

Her dreams may cost Ellie her family, but ignoring them will cost her happiness.

Only one person knows what truly lies in Ellie Jeffords’ heart, and that’s herself. For almost three years she’s concealed her dreams and lived the life her parents expect her to by studying accountancy. She’s tried to follow their wishes, but they forgot to consider one important detail: Ellie’s happiness.

Hating the course she is studying, Ellie is failing, and the only person who was willing to help—her gran—has passed away. Not wanting to disappoint her family, she struggles on in silence, thinking she can rectify the problem before anyone finds out. So when a friend’s cousin, Justin, offers to tutor her, she jumps at the chance.

As the two meet frequently, and grow closer together, the pressure of exams starts to break Ellie. Justin wants her to confide in him, but he can’t persuade her to talk without revealing his own dark secret. With both of them hiding things, it tests their newly formed relationship. However, Justin refuses to give up on her. He forces her to make a choice between her parents’ dreams and her own, but the only problem is that both options may cost her something she loves.

She wants the leading role in everything but her own life.
Kayleigh Barrow always gets the leading role. Top of her class, well liked, and a good actress, she’s most comfortable on stage where she can pretend to be someone else and forget the real Kayleigh exists. However, when auditions for the latest production are opened up to the entire university, the lines between fantasy and reality start to blur.

The last person Kayleigh expected to audition was Aiden Hanson. Renowned player and popular on campus, Kayleigh has tried to conceal her feeling from him for years. She knows it would be stupid to think he’d want her or an actual relationship, but when they’re thrown together in the production, Kayleigh can no longer hide from him.

No matter how much she tries to distances herself, he’s always there. Neither of them can deny their attraction, but Kayleigh has to question Aiden’s motives. He’s never had a serious relationship and she refuses to be another conquest. Yet, when her acting starts to become real and she can no longer hide behind her character, Kayleigh must decide whether Aiden’s worth the risk, or if he’s only after a challenge and will end up breaking her heart.
