Flint and Fury are back. Brace yourselves. . .

Today I have pulled on my big girl panties and invited both Fury and Flint from Shehanne Moore's The Unraveling of Lady Fury to my blog. But before I ask them anything, I better make sure no one misbehaves. After all this blog doesn't have a content warning...

Now before we start, I have some rules. Flint, don’t look at me like that. I’m just trying to keep it clean. Fury, who gave you that bat? Put it down.

Rule 1. There will be no fighting.
Rule 2. There will be no attacking the host.
Rule 3. There will be no lying.

Now if you two are going to behave, I’d like to start by thanking you both for coming along. You’ve both been here, for different reasons of course, but I’m curious as to how things are going for you out on the open sea, as a couple and parents.

We’ll start with an easy question. Where are you both now?
Flint: (giving the famous Flint smile) Well, I thought that was obvious Aimee, sitting right here with you.

Fury: Why don’t you just ignore him and let me do the talking? Since my little contretemps with Lady Margaret and Flint appropriating Malmesbury’s boat, we have been many places, where, of course, I have been holding my little Book-club meetings. Most recently we were in Shehanne’s hometown of Dundee as I---er—think you can see from this headline here.

Oh dear, you two are going to end up caught if you're not careful! Right, onto the next question. Has living together this time around been easy, or better than before?
Flint : Did I thank you for having us along, Aimee?
Fury : Of course you did and if you don’t want to find yourself hit with this bat, you won’t do it again.
Flint : You see Aimee, obviously it was better till we brought ourselves on here and she started arguing again. After I went and got her that fancy boat too.
Fury : Aimee, it has been wonderful but then again after last time that wouldn’t be hard.

You both sound much calmer than before. I'm impressed. So, how is parenting going?
Flint : Have I showed you the picture of Storm? She is beautiful.  That’s because she takes after—
Fury : Obviously Storm takes after me. Unless of course you’re meaning her taste for rum...
Flint : I think it’s going just dandy but then what do I know?
Fury : Do you really want me to answer that?

Is there wedding bells on the horizon?
Flint : (Leaning forward) Aimee, you tell me.
Fury : Right, that is it.
Flint  :That’s a shame when I was going to give you this.

Fury : A box? I just hope Thomas isn’t in it.
Flint : Why don’t you open it and see the other damn box that’s in it?

Aw what a lovely ring. Congratulations you two! So now, are you looking to make your family bigger?
Fury : All the time. I mean....uhm....
Flint : Sort of. I mean it’s fun isn’t it?

*Clears throat* I can imagine, yes. Okay, moving on... Lastly, for Fury, is Flint still trying to be a gentleman?
Fury : As you can see, absolutely not but he does have redeeming qualities.

Well thank you both for coming here today, it has been an honor. Hopefully we can get you back at some point in the future. I better be getting an invite to the wedding...

More about Fury & Flint's book. If you haven't read it, why not? It's fantastic. 

Rule One: There will be no kissing. Rule two: You will be fully clothed at all times…

Widowed Lady Fury Shelton hasn’t lost everything—yet. As long as she produces the heir to the Beaumont dukedom, she just might be able to keep her position. And her secrets. But when the callously irresistible Captain James “Flint” Blackmoore sails back into her life, Lady Fury panics. She must find a way to protect herself—and her future—from the man she’d rather see rotting in hell than sleeping in her bed. If she must bed him to keep her secrets, so be it. But she doesn’t have to like it. A set of firm rules for the bedroom will ensure that nothing goes awry. Because above all else, she must stop herself from wanting the one thing that Flint can never give her. His heart.

Ex-privateer Flint Blackmoore has never been good at following the rules. Now, once again embroiled in a situation with the aptly named Lady Fury, he has no idea why he doesn’t simply do the wise thing and walk away. He knows he’s playing with fire, and that getting involved with her again is more dangerous than anything on the high seas. But he can’t understand why she’s so determined to hate him. He isn’t sure if the secret she keeps will make things harder—or easier—for him, but as the battle in the bedroom heats up, he knows at least one thing. Those silly rules of hers will have to go…
