*Note- my responses to Elise’s answers are in italics.

Tell us something dark about yourself.

I’m addicted to carbs.


Me too.  I’d die before I’d give them up.

You are on a deserted island and can only choose one beverage to have besides water.  What would it be?

A magical drink that teleports me to a five star resort in Hawaii.


Smart answer 🙂

If you had to choose between a bullwhip, cat o’ nine tails, or a crop, which would you pick?

This might be the first time I’ve been asked this specific question. Crop.


I do like to keep authors on their toes…

What mythical creature would you be and why?

Angelina Jolie. I don’t believe she really exists.


Interesting theory.

What first inspired you to write your book?

BOUNTY’s heroine, Abby, is a journalist and a lot like me. So, I guess I inspired this one!



How long did it take to research/write it?

Five months.


Not bad.

Give one unique fact about your novel that makes it different from the others in its genre.

BOUNTY is a funny wild military and political romantic thriller. That’s probably unique! Also, burlap bag. The burlap bag is different.


Yep, you definitely don’t see burlap bags as part of the story very often!

What other books do you plan to publish in the future?

SWAP comes out at the beginning of February. It’s a rom com thriller based in Mallorca. On Valentine’s Day, I’m releasing a Matchmaker prequel novella. Then, at the end of February book three of the Matchmaker series comes out.


Sounds great 🙂



Thanks to Elise for being here today and for participating in this interview.  It was great having her!  For everyone else, please check out all the information on her and her book below.  Feel free to ask your own questions if you have any.



author picAUTHOR BIO:

Elise Sax worked as a journalist for fifteen years, mostly in Paris, France. She took a detour from journalism and became a private investigator before trying her hand at writing fiction. She lives in Southern California with her two sons. She is also the author of the Matchmaker Mystery Series.





Abby Williams has got it made: First a new job as magazine editor in London, and now a trip to an exotic island to review a five-star resort with poolside service. Unfortunately, on day two of her vacation, Abby finds herself bound and stuffed into a burlap bag and dragged across two continents. And worse than that? Her hottie abductor has got her distracted. Maybe escape is overrated.

Iain Brodie is a muscle-bound mercenary. He just helped a despotic dictator take over an island. He’s also Abby’s kidnapper, and he has his own problems.  Framed for a murder he didn’t commit and a boss who’s out to get him, he has to face facts:  Early retirement is out of the question and Abby Williams looks damned good in a burlap bag.

Elise Sax delivers another hilarious page-turner, filled with adventure, murder, mayhem, and love. BOUNTY is a sexy, wild ride.

I picked up the phone. “I thought we had a deal!” I yelled at Harriman. But it wasn’t Harriman.
“I don’t remember making a deal, Princess.”
I felt feverish at the sound of his voice. A warm wave of wonderful washed up my body making me want to remove my clothes at the first available moment.
“I thought you were somebody else,” I stammered.
“Somebody you made a deal with, it seems. Should I be worried?”
Think. Think. Think.
I was out. I couldn’t think of what to say. He should be worried, and it was my fault. I had made a deal to his detriment. I was a drain on him, and he didn’t even know it. He kidnapped me, but I had alerted the authorities about him. The feds were breathing down his neck, and he was oblivious. He sold me to a Chechen warlord, and I sold him out. Way out. Clean out. Out to sea. Out of this world.
I had to come clean. I had to warn him. Warn him about the authorities and warn him about me. He would hate me. He would never call me Princess, again. My tongue grew thick, and my throat closed. I thought, optimistically, that I was having anaphylactic shock.
