Welcome to my guest, Mason Harding, the very colorful hero we want to hate but can’t from Arresting Mason by Amber Daulton.
Addison: How would you describe yourself in a personal ad?
Mason: Personal ad? Seriously? If I did that, I’d probably have to pre-schedule an obituary next. My fiancé Mia would be super pissed. But, hey, I can play ball as long as you don’t post this in the newspaper. I’m tall, broad-shouldered, with dark spiky hair and tattoos. My muscles are big enough that any woman in her right mind would want to lick them.
Addison: What would you change about your life if you could?
Mason: Damn, a serious question. All right, well, I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life, but I don’t think I would change anything. I’m the man I am today because of my past, and I like myself for the most part. I went to prison for a stupid mistake, but I’m free now. I’m determined to stay out of trouble, no matter how difficult that is.
Addison: What are your thoughts on love?
Mason: I never really understood what that word meant until recently. My brother, Alan, has always been there for me even when I didn’t deserve it, and I know he loves me unconditionally. Before I met Mia and went away to prison, I had a lot of girlfriends but none of them owned a piece of my heart. Mia does. She’s kind and open-minded, and like Alan, loves me for me. Meeting her changed my life for the better.
Addison: What’s your quirkiest habit?
Mason: It’s not really a habit, but I have a facial tick. The muscle involuntarily spasms when I get angry or upset, and it annoys me. You see, I broke my jaw years earlier, and the tick started after I healed.
Addison: What terrifies you most?
Mason: Disappointing Mia and my family. I walk a straight line everyday, but sometimes it would be pretty easy to misstep and wind up in prison again.
About Arresting Mason
Once you’re in a prison gang, you’re in it for life. That’s what Mason Harding thought until the boss accepted his resignation. After the State releases him on parole, a sexy divorcée behind the wheel of a car almost ends his life quicker than a shank. His chance encounter with Mia Eddison results in a night of passion, but her brother—his parole officer—catches them together and doesn’t approve.
When members of an organized crime ring kidnap Mia to force Mason’s return to the gang, he goes up against an old friend to save the woman he loves. Will his sacrifice be enough or will everything fall apart in a blaze of gunfire?
