Free For All Friday - Meet Author Anita Philmar!

Please help me welcome fellow Wild Rose Press author - not to mention fellow historical western author (Yay! Western) - Anita Philmar!
You can learn more about Anita and her work at  or but then come on back for a peek at TEXAS PASSION!

Thanks for being here, Anita:)
1. If you were going to cast the hero of your book, what actor would get the part?
Would love Chris Hemsworth from the Thor movie to play the hero in my book "Banished Witch".
I'd even give him private coaching to help him get into the character's head.
2. What is your favorite time of year?
     Spring. For some reason this is also when I like my books to start. Love is in the air and everyone is looking for love.
3.What music are you listening to lately?
I'm a country music fan. Have been listening to Zac Brown band.  I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand / Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand / Life is good today, life is good today ...

4. What is your favorite dessert/food? 
I like almost all types of food, but my favorite dessert includes something with both nuts and chocolate. (Yum!)
5. Tropical or European vacation? 
European if someone else is paying for it. (Hey, book one for me too then!) I always wanted to visit Ireland. 
Blurb -
After a long cattle drive to Abilene, Trent McCall just wants to unwind. But in his absence, his father's been making wedding plans...for Trent. The last thing he needs is a spoiled and pampered socialite for a wife. What he needs is a hard drink and a willing woman. An uncomplicated woman who understands a man’s need for release after a hard ride. Good thing he’s got one waiting for him.

Four years back East haven’t changed Catherine Turnberry’s mind. Her heart is set on neighboring rancher, Trent McCall. When an end-of-the-trail party threatens to put him in the arms of another woman, Catherine grabs the bull by the horns. Taking the place of the whore hired to pleasure Trent, she intends to give him a welcome he'll never forget and show him what Texas passion is all about.

“Well, now, did you think I’d ever arrive?” He shut the door and tossed his hat onto the table by the door. Dark curly hair circled his head, and his dark brown eyes met hers.
“I had no doubt you’d get here eventually.” Her hands shaking, Catherine laid her book on the rocker and tried for a more seductive tone. “But I’d like to know what delayed you.”

One corner of his mouth turned up in a crooked grin, he stepped forward, and then paused. “Wait a second, don’t I know you?”

Catherine nodded and toyed with the knot holding her robe together. Should she shed her robe and try to seduce him first? Or just tell him her name?
He tilted his head slightly, and a frown formed on his lips. The subdued lighting of the lantern didn’t mask the lines marring his brow.
Apprehension slithered over her skin, and a lump the size of Texas grew in her throat. “I…uh…”


More of an accusation than a question, her name echoed in her head. “Yes, I…” She edged closer.
He shuffled backward until his back hit the door. “What the hell are you doing here?” His gaze dropped to swell of her breasts, and the cattywhumped expression on his face registered. Clarity filled her head. The man might deny it, but the heat in his eyes proved he found her appealing. Energy pulsed through her, and she untied the knot at her waist. “I decided, since we’re practically engaged, I didn’t want you sleeping with another woman.”

“Whoa, don’t even think about removing that robe.” He held out his hands to stop her, but his tongue slid over his parched lips and the blaze in his eyes sparked higher. Catherine’s confidence grew, and the doubt that had plagued her for the last few hours faded. He might resist, but she’d show him this was what they both wanted.
