*Giveaway* Q&A w/Ms. Cat Grant *Riptide Publishing*

Ladies and Gents of the Lair....
Please put together a warm Smutty welcome for a wonderful woman...

Ms. Cat Grant!

Hello, and thank you for joining me on my blog tour for Priceless, my new novella for Riptide Publishing’s 2012 Rentboy Collection. **Be sure to comment for a chance to win one of my backlist books!**

And here’s a little chat with Connor Morrison (who may or may not bear a strong physical resemblance to a certain actor with the initials M(ichael) F(assbender), the geeky, brilliant physics professor who falls for Wes, the young rent boy in question…

Q: Thanks for taking the time to talk with us today, Connor. Can you tell us what first attracted you to Wes?

Connor: This will probably sound clichĂ©, but it was his mind that drew me in. The night we met he asked me about the project I was working on, and he hung on every word, eager to learn more. And quick to pick it up, too. He’s one of the few undergrads I’ve known who I can converse with as an equal. And he’s utterly adorable, too.

Q: So I imagine you were devastated when you discovered—

Connor: That my best friend hired Wes to sleep with me? Yeah, you could say that.

Q: Sorry. Didn’t mean to upset you.

Connor: (sighs) It’s fine. I should’ve known you ask these types of questions. Go on.

Q: (shuffles paper) Wes has talked to us about the rough time one of his former clients gave him. You were the one who took him to the hospital, correct?

Connor: (nods) Poor kid was covered in bruises from what that . . . monster did to him. It’s a lucky thing I was home that night.

Q: Lucky for both of you, seeing as you’re now living together. How difficult was it to forgive Wes for what he’d done?

Connor: For taking money to sleep with me? (rubs a hand over his face) Well, once the initial shock faded, I realized there was nothing to forgive. Wes did what he needed to do to pay for his education. He’s a brave, brilliant young man, and I’m fortunate to have him in my life. And happy that he’ll never have to sell himself ever again.


And now here’s a blurb to whet your appetites:

When love’s for sale, who really pays?
Connor Morrison is a 3D optics pioneer, the star of the UC Berkeley physics department, and a socially-inept workaholic. And with his dear friend and business partner, Steve Campbell, handling their investors, he’s content to remain in the shadows. That is, until he meets the gorgeous and starry-eyed physics student Wes Martin. 

Wes is brilliant but broke. Ever since his scholarship fell victim to the financial crisis, he's had no choice but to sell his body to stay in school. Already half in love with Connor, Wes initially resists Steve's offer to be Connor's thirty-fifth birthday present. But in the end, Wes is too broke—and too smitten—to say no.
Connor has no idea Steve bought Wes’s attentions, and he quickly falls under the young man’s spell. Yet after one night together, Wes disappears. He can't bear to hook with a man he could so easily grow to love, but he also can’t bear to tell him the truth. Besides, if he sleeps with Connor again, there'd be no way to hide the bruises one of his regular johns loves to inflict. Only one thing to do: let Connor go. Walking away is painful, but not nearly as much as building a relationship on lies.

EPIC Award-winning author Cat Grant lives by the sea in beautiful Monterey, California, with one persnickety feline and entirely too many books and DVDs. When she's not writing, she sings along to whatever's on her iPod, watches lots of movies, and fantasizes about kinky sex with Michael Fassbender.
