Character Crush: Bram the Viking of The Garnet Dagger


Character Crush
Because Authors Have Crushes Too!




1.  Does Bram believe in love?
Yes. Bram was in love briefly once
before, but she passed away from plague. His brief taste of love was not enough
to sustain him. Then he saw Kaireen taking care of her niece and his passion
awakened again. As he spent time with her, his love grew into something deeper
than he had known before.
2.  What
actor or actress resembles Bram?

Alexander
Ludwig. He’d make a great Bram
. Especially if his blue eyes are highlighted and he was age slightly
3.  What has been the biggest conflict in Bram’s life?

Convincing
Kaireen to marry him without telling her he loves her. He made a vow that she would
agree to the marriage or the arrangement was void. She is a feisty stubborn
lass, but he saw that she was mostly fighting against her desire and feelings
for him. Still, her words were harder than wrestling with Jörmungandr the Midgard serpent.

4.   What makes Bram sexy?
His
confidence. He knows what he wants and goes after it.


5.  Use the first three words that pop into
your mind to describe Bram?
Cocky,
Loyal, Strong
6.  Does Bram believe in ghosts,
the occult, aliens, or the supernatural? 
If so, why?
Yes.
In part because of his Viking heritage. However, spending time with Elva,
Kaireen’s handmaid, swayed him of the occult and supernatural. She would convince
anyone if you were around her for long.

Viking Fire Blurb:

In 856 CE, Ireland is a land of myth,
magic, and blood. Viking raiders have fought the Irish for over half a century.
Rival Irish clans promise only betrayal and carnage.
Kaireen, daughter of Laird Liannon,
is suddenly forced into an arranged marriage with her sworn enemy, a Viking.
She refuses to submit. With no mention of love, only land and the protection of
her clan, she endeavors to get her betrothed banished from her country. Will
love find its way around her stubborn heart?
Bram, the Viking, finds himself
without future or inheritance as a younger son in his family. A marriage to the
Laird’s daughter would grant him land if he swears fidelity and if his men will
fight along with the Liannons against any foe—Irish or Viking. However, the
Laird’s feisty daughter only holds animosity for him and his kind. Is marriage
worth the battle scars of such a relentless opponent?
With the blame for a rival laird’s
death treacherously set against the Liannons, Kaireen and Bram must find a way
to lay aside their differences as an unforeseen darkness sends death snapping
at their heels.

Viking Fire Excerpt
Chapter One Ireland 856 CE (condensed)

“I
renounce Father for this.” Kaireen threw the elderberry gown.
“Shame
on you and your children for speaking such.” Her handmaid, Elva, gathered the
damask and then dusted off the rushes. “It’s a wonder one of the clim has not
scolded you from your hearth for such talk.”
“No,
curse Father for a fool.” She plopped on her bed and a goose feather floated
away. With a huff, she leaned against the oak headboard. Red curtains puffed
like a robin’s chest around oak poles supporting her wooden canopy.
Her
bare feet brushed against the stone floor.
“You
know your da arranged a marriage within a season.” Elva smirked.
Kaireen
shook her head. “To another land holder,” and waved a hand in disgust, “not
t-this heathen. Twice they raided our land in the last month alone. Now father
wants me as wife to one of them?” She clenched her fists. “No, I will not marry
this Viking.”
Elva
smiled, reminding Kaireen of the rumors of her handmaid’s uncanny foresight.
Whispers
of Elva making strange things happen and often blamed as the cause of
Kaireen’s
stubborn refusal to behave as a laird’s daughter should.
“You’ve
not seen him yet.” Elva wiggled her brows.
“So?”
Kaireen shrugged. “I would like to never see him.”
“Well
then, would you not like to know if you have a handsome husband or not?” She
waited for her response, but Kaireen scowled. Elva chuckled. “I would rather
get a good look at him now than the morning after.”
Kaireen’s
ears heated. “I am not marrying.” She shook her head for emphasis. “So there
will be no morning, nor night, nor wedding.”
“If
he is handsome, I may fight you for him.” Elva smiled, deepening the wrinkles
around her eyes.
“Welcome
to him either way.” Kaireen laughed.

Reviews:
“Andrea Cooper weaves a tantalizing tale of life in a
not-too-civilized Ireland. Best of all she weaves in the unique thread of a
courtship filled with fun, fury, and fighting that leads to a love that show
how true loves are willing to give their lives to protect each other. Good
entertainment.” –Long and Short  
Reviews
“The story is fast paced with almost constant action. The
love story is sweet as Kaireen matures into an incredible and strong woman.
Sinister plots and violent betrayals tell a compelling story. A very enjoyable
story.” –Night Owl Reviews

About Andrea

Growing up in Houston, Texas, Andrea has always created characters and stories.
But it wasn’t until she was in her late twenties that she started writing
novels.

What happened that ignited the writing flame
in her fingers? Divorced, and disillusioned by love songs and stories. They
exaggerate. She thought. Love and Romance are not like that in the real world.
Then she met her husband and realized, yes love and romance are exactly like
the songs and stories say. She is now a happy wife, and a mom to three kids
(two boys and a girl).

counting each moment as a blessing.
But most importantly, she believes in
love.
