Beefcake Preview Opening Night: Sabin


Gena, can you give us an anecdote regarding Sabin while writing up history?

He is a stubborn, stubborn man who has always placed victory against his enemies above falling in love -- until Gwendolyn the Timid kicks him in the balls dazzles him.

We are happy to welcome Sabin, keeper of the demon of Doubt in the Grand Opening of the Preview Club.I'm sitting down with Sabin in the red velvet gazebo of the Club, "welcome to the Club and thank you for participating in this endeavor! Can I get you anything from the bar?"

"Ice. In a bag."

It is really hard for me not to stare at him, gorgeous and with an edge of"other" he just makes my throat go dry. I try to act as though I have done this a hundred times before and somehow it feels like I'm failing miserably. So I go ahead and ask him some questions.

General:



Sabin, can you give us some details regarding yourself and your story.

The Darkest Whisper
Lords of the Underworld series - Book #4
HQN - September 2009

ISBN-13: 9780373773923
ISBN-10: 0373773927
Publisher: Harlequin Books
Date: August 2009
Page Count: 416

Here's what the publisher has to say: New York Times bestselling sensation Gena Showalter returns with her long-awaited next installment of the Lords of the Underworld series. He is the keeper of Doubt and his entire world is about to be rocked.

Bound by the demon of doubt, Sabin unintentionally destroys even the most confident of lovers. So the immortal warrior spends his time on thebattlefield instead of the bedroom, victory his only concern.until he meets Gwendolyn the Timid. One taste of the beautiful redhead, and he cravesmore.

Gwen, an immortal herself, always thought she'd fall for a kind human whowouldn't rouse her darker side. But when Sabin frees her from prison,battling their enemies for claim to Pandora's box turns out to be nothing compared to thebattle Sabin and Gwen will wage against love.

Here's what I have to say: New York Times bestselling sensation Gena Showalter enjoyed torturing me. But Gwen is hot and rocks my world, so I guess I forgive her


· Profile: Like a singles ad? Hell, why not? Single Bad Ass looking to kill Bad Guys. Love Interests need not apply. Too busy saving underworld.

· Name: Sabin, leader of the Lords of the Underworld. Well, half of them, anyway (and yeah, that's said in a grumble)

· Age: Old (But damn if I don't look a day over 30)

· Length: Long and hard (It's not bragging if it's true)

· Body build: Big.

· Hair: Dark.

· Eyes: Dark and sexy (See note about not bragging)

· Personality: Perfect (Again, not bragging)

· Favorite weapon? If it kills, I like it.

· Favorite outfit? On woman? I like 'em naked but armed.

· Turn on? Winning a battle.

· Favorite drink? Corona.


Sabin 101:

· Sabin, to prepare us for the big day of your story can you give a few quotes that speak of your "typical" behavior/humor/ attitude of yours?

"Kill them." As said to my men regarding our enemy."Like I said, you can shut the hell up, you dirty piece of shit. I've had all of you I can take." As said to my demon, oh, about a thousand times a day. "I want her." As I said to anyone who will listen after I first meet Gwen.

· Sabin, do you have a one-liner for the ladies?

Nah. I leave that for Paris. And Strider. Morons!

· If you have one, what is your favorite romantic setting?

Sorry, girls,but I'm not really a romantic kind of guy. No, seriously. I'm a fighter not a lover. I mean it. Really. Me cave-man, you she-woman.

· What do you consider your personal pros and cons?

Pros: I'm strong and courageous. I love to fight, love to win, usually win, plan ahead, am ferocious, did I mention I'm strong? Cons? Can't think of any. I'm pretty damn amazing. Well, okay, fine. Maybe there's one small thing. My demon, Doubt, has crushed the self-esteem of several past girlfriends and caused them to kill themselves. We're working on it, though.

· What car do you drive?
A stolen Escalade

· Last movie you watched?
Paris made me watch Shakespeare in Love. That dude did not look anything like Will.

· Where did you sleep last night?
In a tent. In the desert. I'm still spitting sand.

· What music do you listen to?
The faster the beat, the more I like the song.

· What type of girl do you usually fall for?
Someone strong. Really strong. Physically, mentally and emotionally. Otherwise, my demon will do that pesky crushing thing.

· Do you have any talents?
Not just yes, but hell yes. I'm pretty talented with a blade. And a gun. Gods, you should see me with a bow and arrow. I haven't rocked that shit in a while, but damn, I'm good.

· Friends can't live with them, can't live without them, what's your take on it?
Can't live without them. That's why I'm willing to die for mine.

· What are your plans for tomorrow?
Kill someone. But then, that's pretty much always on the menu.

· Who can wake you up in the middle of the night for?
As I no longer do sleepovers, I can't say sex. Though I would. Wake up for it, I mean. But otherwise, I will wake up at any time for cheese tots. That stuff melts in your mouth, man.


Wooing the ladies with an excerpt:
"What can I do to help you, Gwen?" There was a shuffle of footsteps as Sabin closed the rest of the distance between them. His heat seeped into her."Air," she was finally able to force past the knot in her throat. Sabin's hands settled atop her shoulders, gently pushing. Her legs were too weak to offer any type of resistance, so she tumbled down-straight into one of those chairs. "I need air."With no hesitation, Sabin dropped to his knees. He inserted his big body between her legs and cupped her face, forcing her to focus on him. Intense brown eyes became the new center of her world, an anchor in a turbulent storm. "Take mine." His callused thumb caressed her cheek, abrading lightly. "Yes?"Take his.what? she wondered, and then she didn't care. Her chest! Constricting, pinching bone and muscle together. A sharp pain tore throughher ribs and slammed into her heart, causing the organ to skitter to amomentary halt. Gwen jerked. "You're turning blue, darling. I'm going to place my mouth over yours, give you my breath. All right? "What if this is a trick? What if-Shut up! Even in her frail haze, she knew the eerie, ghostly whisper was not her own. Thankfully, it heeded her command and quieted. Now, if only her lungs would open up. "I-I-"Need me. Let me do this." If he feared her response, he gave no indication. One of his hands trailed to the base of her neck and drew herforward, even as he leaned into her. Their lips pressed together, a heated tangle. His hot tongue pried her teeth apart, and then warm, minty air was sliding down her throat, soothing. Her arms wound around him of their own accord, holding him captive, meshing them together chest to chest, hardness to softness. His necklace was cold,even through her shirt, and pressed into her, making her gasp. She greedily took his breath. "More."


Side note from Sabin: Fine. Maybe I am a little romantic. But whatever.


I hope you enjoyed your time here at the Club Sabin, the ladies appreciateit more than I can express!

Sabin: I'm not leaving until you answer a question for me. Anyone have any cheese tots?

"Jeez, man, slick, very slick of yourself. Well ladies, since Leontine ordered me to play nice I would say come on up and let me know what poison graces your taste buds!" Leontine waves a few signs at Aidan. Aidan look back at her with a droll face. "Right, fuck, yes, I forgot. Two messages, one; Sam couldn't make it.

    Stopping by the party!

    I'm kind of a tea toter so I'll have a virgin Collins.

    But as for my guys, I'll have a big heaping plate of dark and sexy, and this sounds just like what you've got going on over here.

    Dottie :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. A demon from hell cocktail sounds great I think I'll have one of those Aidan.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Tristan sounds amazing, so watch yourself Elaine.

    And don't know about you guys, but every party needs snacks or Tristan trying care of that? *wink*

    As for music, I like to request an oldie, Let's Put the X in Sex please!

  53. Thank you Tristan for the yummy deliciousness that is my cocktail. Sigh...my heart palpitations over Sabin are finally slowing down. Whew!

    Ooo yes, thank you for tissues as well.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh, okay, this was definitely a way to brighten up my Monday afternoon! ;)

    Tristan does sound amazing, but Sabine's got my full attention right now... I love Showalter's books, I've read all of them and I'm anxious awaiting the next ones. :D

    Now, don't get too wild ladies! Remember, it's only Monday, and many of you probably have work tomorrow! :)

    Oh, and Dottie, you mentioned something about a 'big heaping plate of dark and sexy" guys? Are you going to share girl, or just keep them over in your corner? LOL.

    I'm not much of a drinker... It's been advised by my friends years ago that I not touch alcohol at a party, so... I guess I'll just have a nice cold soda or something. Unless Tristan has some really good Virgin drinks back there... *wink*

    ENJOY!

    Hey Dottie - Dark and sexy yes that's most definitely going on here. Come sit in a booth! Have you read any LOTU books yet?

    The jukebox is all yours Dottie and Tristan and Aidan can make the snacks you want. They just kinda stuck with cheese tots cause Sabin enjoys them so and in honor of him in the spotlight made them.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Dottie I'm too busy watching him,maybe you should warn him ;)

  82. I love, love, love the Lords of the Underworld! Sabin sounds more and more sexy every day. He's just full of snark, you know? And he's a bit self-deprecating regarding the demon - but only in that sense, which is hilarious.

    Feel free to pick me as the winner. I don't mind. ;) I'm following you on google friend connect now.

  85. Hey Leontine

    Make room in the booth and TBQ, I'll happily share, there appears to be plenty of dark and sexy here.

    I'll have a Virgin anything, I love sweet though, although with my dark and sexy.

  86. I love the Lords of the Underworld series and I seriously can't wait for Sabin's book. My favorite so far was the Darkest Pleasure, Reyes is so hot. I want them all to find their soul mates though.

  91. Holy Crap! I missed the opening of the Beefcake Preview Club!

    Damn, damn, damn this flu!
    Made me miss out on Opening Night and more importantly Sabin!!
    When I'm on my feet again I'll read the entire post...

    So sorry I missed it! I'm anxiously waiting for the next LOTU book since I devoured the first 3! They are great but hey anything coming from Gena is great so enough said there!

    Leontine! Thanks for hosting this great event!

    No drinks for me unfortunately since I'm on meds...but that doesn't lessen the fun LOL

    Hugs,
    Pearl

  92. Good morning everyone, I'm a bit wrung out after yesterday evening and I see many more joint the party.

    Hi JennJ - Glad to see you here and send you an e-mail with details!

    Hi Jo Ann - great to meet you and what a woman wouldn't do with Sabin *grin*

    Hi Audrey A - Welcome here. My mind is a bit clouded (Passion # 1 went well, #2 was going easy #3 did me in) Reyes, traveling to LOTU site...aaahhhh yes, Reyes, now that I see his cover. I remember him LOL

    Hi whateverfor - If luck is on your side I am sure you'll win :D And I'll back cheese tots all day if Sabin will keep me company too!

    Hi Smokinhotbooks, great to see you and I even heard some online sites have release dates as early and I believe 25thof August! Perhaps you'll have another Lora Leigh episode at what was it; Barnes and Noble, that would be nice :D

    Hi Amy - When I read it all back my heart skipped a beat, LOTU needs some prime time from me.

    Cecile!!! Hey girl, I missed you but I'm so glad you got to drop by (((hugs)))Of course you can speak your preference for what giveaway you like to be entered in, totally forgot to mention that!!

    Pearl, Hi girl, so glad you got to swing by (((hugs))) Your love for Gena's novels has infected me as well but then again, you have that effect on my once or twice before *wink* I can still remember those ARC's coming in for the LOTU series LOL Pearl, I'll call later this week to see how you are doing!

    Hi Blodeuedd - Good morning and lets have breakfast, how about some croissants and juice? Pearl, sip on the juice, fluids and vitamins is important now.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Cecile, babe, I know you have to work hard but I missed you last night. You come by on any day of the week and I'll make you a special cocktail and we'll do some talking then *wink* Right now it is making breakfast for some ladies still dropping by so they have a good start of the day.

    Pearl, let me take care of your vitamin shot and make you a freshly squeezed fruit juice cocktail.

    Blodeuedd, what stirrs you this early in the morning and what can I get you. Fruit juice, tea,chocolate milk? Just give me a shout and I'll get it.

    ReplyDelete
  94. *grumbling* Fuck it is early in the morning.

    Hey Cecile, I don't think I do nice very well but I'll think on the dancing part. Tristan had the balls to throw a dare in my face can you believe the bastard!? So now what: A Full Monty - You can leave your hat on scene...like that is going to happen. Nah, no full monty but I'll think on the dancing ala Coyote Ugly thing on the bar.

    Blodeuedd, woman, you know how to give a wake up call. Lets go do breakfast, Trustan is already whisteling in the kitchen for crying out loud!

  96. OI just read Sabin's intro and knowing this Lord from the previous books it only added spice to read his novel.

    While walking into the club I give Tristan a wicked wink, sit down at booth and snap my figners as a sign for Aidan to come to me so I can order my fave cocktail, it's alcohol-free but dayum trust me Tristan knows his way around to bring me something rather tasty.

    ReplyDelete
  97. ***opens eyes,sits up on booth bench,scratches head-pulls cheese tots from hair...looks around,see Tristan grinning at me from bar**

    Good morning everyone,gees Leontine,what happened last night?
    You left me lying there all night ;)

    **gets up,walks over to bar,adjusting top and skirt,smooths hair,sits on bar stool***

    Tristan, I'll have a Mimosas.
    What's the saying.."you have to have a bit of the hair of the dog that bit you" or something like that..hey I'm virtually hungover,give a girl a break ;)all I know is it means more drinking..lol.

    Aidan,where'd you go? I think I scared him off..lol

  114. Hey Leontine!! I am sneaking in here from work!!! I think I figured a way around the slow computer... I just can't go to my place!!! But I can (at least I am crossing my fingers that this is not just a glich) visit everyone else!!! I think!!!

    Anyway... when I posted my last comment it was close or a little past midnight my time... And I forgot to tell you that I am follower of your's and my email addy is alliwantandmorebooks(at)gmail(dot)com.
    And I forgot to talk about the Lords!!! OMG... okay, if anyone has missed the boat of reading these books, you simply must!!! They are all very yum-me men!!!! Maddox, Lucien (mine), Reyes (Charlotte's), Paris (I'll claim that big flirt), Aeron, Sabin, Gideon and the list goes on... are allll sooo very yum-me-for-my-.... =)

    elaing8, Girl you had me cracking up last night despite the fact that my eye lids were closing on me while reading!!! I think I did see you dance on the tables last night, but don't worry, you had company... me apparently your were a little too drunk and I was tried and drunk and you are very convincing!!!!
    Tristan told me that we did very good... he racked in some tips from us, lol!!!

    **Tristan!!! I am at work, but make me whatever you wish, as long as I can drink it from your body!!!** Oh, did I say that outloud.
    Oh and Tristan, I will take care of Sam when he gets here... I know how much hot water (we'll be in) he will be in!!! You can join us in the hot water if you would like!!!The more the merrier!!!
    I need to start early to make up for missing yesterday!!!!
    See.... what you do to me!!
    That man and a drink - can make me do anything! Sneaking from work to see him!!! OH but he is sooo worth it!!!

    Love you Leontine!!! I hope you had a great day!
    Cecile

    ReplyDelete
  115. Cecile, Glad I could make you laugh.Those drinks are powerful.
    Things are slowly coming back to me.I knew I'd end up dancing on the table.But I'm glad I wasn't alone.
    Take Tristan for a whirl on the dance floor, he's a good dancer ;)

    Now we just need to convince Aidan to some dancing on the table tops

    Aidan what will it take?**bats eyelashes,slurps the last of my drink**

    Another round Tristan....

  116. Well, I am definitely a newbie, and am just sitting here with a fabulous cocktail and reading all about Gena's men. I can't believe I haven't started this series yet, and you totally have me hooked.

  119. My time... 10:19 pm Tuesday night...
    ***I have been sitting in the corner booth watching everyone... sipping (okay chugging) my drink... told you I have to make up for not being here yesterday***

    elaing8 ~ honey, no matter how tired I was last night... You were not having dancing on the table tops by yourself... and I am a very accomodating person!!! And a very bit tipsy!!! We had a blast... Oh.. and how is your vitrual hangover?? I was concerned about you!!

    Not sure what we have to offer to Aidan to get him to loosen up... I kinda had one kink out of his system earlier....
    Aidan... you can dance Coyote Ugly style, honey as long as you smile... *sip sip** you can do whatever you please!
    And I am sure I could get you to place very nicely ***very evil wicked smile***
    Thanks for allowing us play time Leontine!!! I think everyone **including me when I can get here** is having a blast!!!

    ReplyDelete
  120. Too bad I'm preggos and I don't drink anyway. Everyone looks like they are having fun. :P

    I'm just dropping in to say that I can't wait for Sabin's tale to be released! Been waiting for another installment for the Lords of the Underworld for a while, and can't wait to get my greedy hands on it :D

  121. I had a question, but with all my shenanigans the other day :) I think it was missed
    so if you don't mind I'm asking it again

    The Prequel e-book novella-The Darkest Fire,does that need to be read first or can i just start with book 1?


    Thanks

  122. -elaing8
    You can start the Darkest Fire at anytime. It's just a short story that goes more in depth about what happened before the Lords became Lords. It goes the same for for the Darkest Prison. Hope that helps.

  123. I can't wait for Sabin's story! Thanks for having him over.
