I'm extremly happy to have Callum with us today! Can't say how excited I am to be able to share with you all an exclusive Q&A with the hero of HIS KIND OF TROUBLE!
Hi Callum, welcome to Enchantress of Books! Pleasure to have you here with us today!!
It’s a pleasure to be here. Thank you for inviting me.
We keep hearing and seeing the term "Bad Boy" associated with you... however, the term "bad boy" has several different meanings... why don't you share with us what your definition of the term is.
I think bad boys follow their own rules. They care little about what others think of them. And they’ve most likely left a trail of broken hearts in their wake.
Many times that "bad boy" image or cockiness (smiling), is a front. A way to hide the man's true nature... his kindness, or his insecurities, his fears, his loniness.... Is your image of front for something? If so, what for?
Loneliness, perhaps. I grew up traipsing after my mother, Pix. She had a bad case of wanderlust, so I never grew too attached to people or places.
Soooo... you and Monica have a bit of history together... care to share a bit for those who may not be in the know?
We met at her father’s wedding, five years ago. Things got a little out control. Now that I’m back in Vegas, I’m looking to finish what we started.
It's obvious that Monica has "grown up" or change (which ever you'd like to call it) from when you last met/knew her. What made you so determined to "lure her into dropping the prim and proper act," and what made you think it was act to begin with?
The Monica I met was carefree and wild. I knew she couldn’t have changed all that much. And I see the way she looks at me, the way she responds to my flirting. She wants me. She may not want this attraction between us, but it’s there.
Favorite curse word and why? (yeah...I know left field and all, but I like to keep things interesting and a good curse word when used properly can add such emotion to what you're trying to convey!! Plus, you're British, curious as fuck (see what I mean) what yours will be. I do love some of the British ones!!)
Fucking hell. I find I say with increasing frequency. That may have something to do with Monica Campbell.
Thanks for hanging out with us today! Appreciate it!
Thank you, love. Cheers!
But Wait.... There's More!!!
Adventures of a Bad Boy With Callum Hughes from HIS KIND OF TROUBLE
Hello there, my name is Callum Hughes. Though originally from the UK, I spent my life kicking around the globe, seeing new places and falling in love along the way. Mostly with vintage European sports cars, though trust me, women didn’t escape my notice. Have you ever been to Rio during Carnival? Quite an experience, to say the least. The ladies, the parties…well, decadent is one word for it.
Anyway, I’ve developed something of a reputation as a car restoration expert, but really, I just love bringing these works of art back to their former automotive glory. I take pride in my work, but I find it hard to stay in one place for long. Unless I’m obsessing over something like a ’54 Alfa Romeo B.A.T., I enjoy traveling. A lot.
But now that I’m back in Vegas, I’m finding it rather difficult to leave. Mainly because Monica Campbell lives here. I met her once before, years ago. She looked like an angel and kissed like a sinner. Who wouldn’t love that combination? But when we met up again, she was quite altered, different in every way, at least on the outside. Nevertheless, I could sense undercurrents of something uninhibited buried deep inside her, yearning to get out. Those stodgy suits and tamed curls don’t fit her at all. She’s a sex kitten, pure and simple. Therefore, it’s my goal—no, my duty—to tempt her out of this drab shell she’s donned like a shield, and encourage her to reform to her wild ways.
Every time we’re together, there’s a deep sexual tension bubbling between us. And when we touch—well, it sounds stupid—but it’s electric and a bit overwhelming. When she’s in the room, I don’t notice anything, anyone except her. Believe me, I know I sound like a tosser right now, but I can’t help it. Only she does this to me. If it weren’t so exciting, I’d be quite vexed. I like living my life with no strings, no attachments. The woman entices me to put aside my wandering ways, or at least take her with me on my jaunts through Europe and South America.
As for Monica, she likes to pretend she doesn’t notice me, but she gives herself away every time. She can hardly keep her eyes off me, and the way she stares at my tattoo, as though she wants to examine it further, feel it with her fingertips—I must admit, I find it charming. But she keeps fighting this mutual attraction. However, that doesn’t prevent her from sneaking away with me for a quick snog in a supply closet. No, she likes it when I kiss her, when I tempt her. Until she remembers she’s supposed to be a saint. I’m doing my utmost to help her forget all that.
Yet it’s when I talk about my travels that Monica becomes quiet and serious. Then she bombards me with questions about Italy and Spain and Thailand. She’s curious and clever and meant for bigger things than hiding behind a good girl persona. My goal is to make her realize that for herself. If she wants the world, I’ll give it to her. How can I possibly say no to the very complicated, beautiful Monica Campbell?
